I'm teasing. Just wondering why your material is extra-rich today. :p

Wormwood is biblical.  It is an ascetic practice to consume absinthe.

Wormwood is also the principal flavouring ingredient  in - (hold your
breath) vermouth!
That and some gin (or vodka) with a twist, you got a good martini.

Sir Winston Churchill had a unique recipe for his martinis!
He'd pour the gin in the glass while looking at the vermouth bottle on the other side of the room!

Better go check my prosphora...

Lol, that's what's called an extra-dry martini.  Bartending nightmares...anyway, vermouth is underrated.

Prosphora baking?  I hope you're not having a martini at the moment.

Share a bit of your extra-dry martini with all of us and all will be forgiven.  Love thy neighbor!

never mind. we'll give you the wine and oil treatment and check you into the nearest inn, (prepaid, of course). Anything extra we'll look
by PayPal TM*. WE aren't 'other- side-winders'.
BTW. the prosphora came out perfect, well, almost. " There is none perfect, no not one..."

Will you chip in for the pay-per-view movie channels?

I admire people who can bake prosphora well.  Any time I tried my hand at it (granted, our method is a bit different from just about everyone else's), the result was just barely acceptable for sacrifice.  Once I baked a grade A prosphora, but most of mine have been C-.

You're a little young for "pay-per-view" movies, aren't you?
Anyway, we wouldn't want to contribute to the delinquency of a minor.

the 'contributing' part is any adult teaching or aiding and abetting or things like that to the criminal activity of an underage person.
It is considered a very serious criminal offence; as are indeed any activities of adults involving minors - and not just sexual ones!
If found guilty of a charge of 'contributing' carries a minimum sentence of 7 years and a maximum of up to 12-13  - depending on the circumstances.

How old do you think I am?  And why did you think "pay-per-view" was sexual?

C'mon, Mor; at early 30's you could be my grandson - I'm 72.
And ppv need not be sexual, violence and other nasty stuff is just as
undesirable.
OK, 'nuff said; I thought it was a sort of a tease, that's all, but I guess I pushed it too far.
Sorry.

Don't worry about it, I was just confused.  I thought I missed something other than lunch.  :)

All I want is to talk to someone about all the crocheting I've gotten done at work tonight. And internetting.

This is either the dumbest job or the best.

88% on my calc quiz. Yay!
See! School will be over in no time. And then you'll be longing for math quizzes, you just wait and see!

Ok, maybe not. But it can't be that long now...

Can't sleep so I've been figuring out what my family's various patronymics would be in Russian. Fun fact- mine would be Iosifovna.

Funnier fact: I am Denise Denisova. 

My parents could not agree on a girls name and for some reason my mom didn't catch on that perhaps naming me Denise was for some ulterior motive by someone named Dennis.

Worse yet, I have a older first cousin named Denise. This has lead to a life of 'Denise and deNephew' jokes since my mother and each sibling has a niece Denise.

Maybe my name is Iosifina. ;)

(It's not.)

You should change your screen name to Denise Denisovna.

I should. But this version is also from a song from the 60's by a stupidly named group called Randy and the Rainbows.  :eek:
