I think they starve dogs for a few days for those crap dog food commercials.

I don't know - never met a dog that wasn't hungry all the time. :laugh:

Some commercials are far from crap, though. Like this one.

I feel like this place has yet again descended into crazytown... we were relatively quiet during the Nativity Fast.

When I went to pick up one of the other chanters for our practice last evening, he didn't recognize my car because it was street-salt-silver instead of black  ;D.

I thought I'd go through my Ancient Faith podcast library again over Lent. Had to reconsider the idea when I ran it through Winamp and found out it's 533 hours long. :eek: I may have overdone it with the following...

I got a haircut recently and now I'm quite distraught. My bangs are gone and my hair length's too short for me  :(

Oh well, at least it's not as bad as the last time.

Winamp? People still use it? I thought it would be long dead by now.

People with sense use it, or should. Any other player I've used was, by comparison, a total resource hog.

Have you ever been homesick to a place you couldn't possibly call home, but somehow feels more so than you actual home?

or am I just rambling...

Yes, but then I got married. Cure for all that.

Ha. funny thing is that I am actually homesick to my wife's home country. so maybe it worked the other way around for me... instead of curing it, it did cause it... hmmm stuff to think about.

Nope. :p It doesn't come with useless add-ons, either. The first non-AOL version is due for release later this year. ;)

Tonight, my first Greek Salutations:

Damn, girl, you wanna be my πρεσβυτέρα? 

Oh, wait, no, no, no.  I'm sorry.  I'm married.


Anyway, besides the lust and the organ music drowing out the choir, not bad.

When they re-launched the forum in October 2002 I failed to re-register on the first day (10.3.02), and didn't do so until the next day (10.4.02). Because of this delay I lost my chance to make the first page of the 'Members' section as shown according to date joined. I am not an original, first-day member! I am a lowly 10-4er. :( I have long lived with this shame, looking to and fro, wondering who was whispering cruel jokes as I passed, who treated me poorly because they knew I was vulnerable to abuse, who snickered with their friends when I dared to post--and indeed, I wondered, and still do, who it is that will some day ban me from the forum (admittedly a fitting end to a lazy new-comer like myself.) I should just crawl back in my hole!

Um

Hmm

Anyway

Here, this will brighten your day. Afterwards download it and put it on repeat.

Ok. :)

Happy St. David's Day to all the Welsh folk out there, and to those who love them! Also, happy name day to all the Davids out there.

Just found an adapter to my old mobile phone. Actually the first phone I've ever had. Got it when I was 16 years old when my parents got tired of me texting with their phones. And it still works. Feeling fairly nostalgic.

Sort by number of posts. It will make your day happy.  :p

Also, after the 8th time listening to that song, my day was no longer brightened, although I was still mesmerized by that girls exceptionally blue eyes.

Go to politics. All you wonderings will be answered there. 

Note: you will also lose your soul upon entry, so there is a tradeoff.

The elections are coming up. I hope I come across some campaigning Social Democrats; they always give out free roses. Roses make good boutonnières, or, failing that, charming presents.

I had this thought the other day.

Treat every sin as a loaded gun. If you willingly commit that sin, the gun will shoot you in the head because sin is death. Don't take advantage of God's grace saying to yourself, "It's okay if I do such-and-such because God will forgive me." I would never take a loaded gun and shoot myself thinking, "It's okay, the doctor will heal me."

That's a great way of putting it. It does seem that the medical analogies for sin and redemption work much better than the juridical ones.

I coulda swore we had a thread here on internet connections/speeds... but searches using both the [for me, now] broken forum search and a Google search didn't help me find it. Maybe it got hid when Shiny got banned--either moved to purgatory, or simply not findable through searches (I think I had a similar problem before when searching for a TomS thread... it simply wouldn't come up and I eventually had to use a more manual/hands-on searching method to find it).
