it would be kinda cool to have a thread of recordings to hear other peoples voices.  I imagine that Gebre sounds like Bob Marley. It makes reading his posts sound awesome. I think Kissel probably sounds like Hulk Hogan. As for kelly? I'm  pretty sure she is just a squeaky mouse IRL.
Generally I have a very quiet, monotone speaking voice/level/tone. It's sometimes embarrassing, and I can speak well when I want to make the effort... I just normally don't bother.

Cut the grass on a small plot this morning using a scythe a thing I kinda like doing every now and then.

A grumpy Finn calling here. I spent overnight stayed in a hostel in another city. The kitchen was right next to my room so I woke up for a friendly chitchat in the morning. Assumingly foreigners as Finns don't talk to each other except in sauna or while drunk. First they take our women, then they take our jobs and they disrupt my morning with their weirdo customs. Bloody foreigners.

I hope things improve for you.

Welcome to the forum, Olivia :)
Thank you! I'll probably mostly lurk for awhile, until I get more comfortable.

Don't hate the foreigners for taking your women.  Hate yourselves for not being able to keep them.  :p

Lol I wasn't actually serious. I was somewhat annoyed to be awaken too early but not at the customer but to the hostel. Just decided to channel my inner Walt Kowalski for a time.

Poor Rachel, or lucky. I am not quite sure yet... Without that Finnish influence that seems to be present even this forum might have been different.

LOL, I love that I have gotten so many friends to start using "stahp"

You mean the regular covers aren't disgusting? What's wrong with you?

I find just about every photo taken by Annie Leibovitz to be tacky, tastless and disgusting. I have no idea why she is considered a great photographer.

I couldn't tell if it was a real photograph or purely a digital painting. Usually cover photos are photoshopped so well that you don't get an uncanny feeling, this one however...

Because it reminds me of my oldest brother, who lives in Alaska with his family. For awhile he worked for the CIA while in the Air Force.

The best part of Pentecost this year was the reading from the Synaxarion:

Holy Martyr Philosophus suffered for Christ in Alexandria during the persecution by the emperor Decius (249-251). They urged the youth to deny Christ, but he remained steadfast.

After suffering various tortures, he was placed on a soft bed, bound hand and foot, and a harlot was put in the room with him to tempt him to sin. In order not to yield to sin, the saint bit off his tongue and spit it in the harlot’s face. She was so horrified that she fled from him. The executioners, seeing the martyr’s bravery and fearlessness, beheaded the saint with a sword
