Moving right along...

I suppose I should get on to some more important topics...things that are truly Orthodox, deeply meaningful, and in keeping with the venerable teachings and traditions of our Church. Issues that revolve around the salvation of our souls - especially since we are now in the midst of Advent. So...


I wonder if I should bail on the goatee and get the full-on holy beard going again. It is, after all, chilly outside (Oh shoot...was that worldly of me to consider the temperature in this matter? Speaking of which, if there is an Old Calender, is there also an Old Thermometer? If so, maybe it's not really that cold out.)

My vote is for full beard.
For what it's worth, I've decided that for the rest of my stay up here in Alaska I'll be growing a "crazy mountain man beard" (which happens to be pretty much identical to a "holy Orthodox beard"). Of course I've only got two weeks growth so it isn't very impressive yet.
-16F in Fairbanks this morning, there's nothing like having your snot freeze every time you inhale...

If my vote counts at all on this "truly Orthodox, deeply meaningful, and in keeping with the venerable teachings and traditions of our Church" topic, my vote is PLEASE don't!

I have to go with the wife, personally.

I'm not sure I consider the second day of Advent "in the midst of" by the way ;)

Oh...Mimi...technicalities technicalities! I'm on the new new new Calender which has two advents: one prior to Thanskgiving and one after.

Rade: I want pictures.

Susan: then you have to shave me while I read Runciman.

Beards are dumb.

BTW, i would caution you, if you do grow a beard (even though they're dumb), be prepared to fend off the ladies! They won't be able to take their eyes off of you! seriously.

Aaron's been drinking too much of his homebrew, and I'd question what the exact ingredients of it are...

Perhaps he's mixed up his various home based brewing and is trying to ferment his coffee beans.

By the way, the dorky science geek in me reminded me on the bus home today (yes I have conversations with my different personalities and yes the beer drinking fat american guy beats up the dorky science guy on a regular basis) that there is indeed an old and new thermometer...we call it celsius and fahrenheit.

LOL, I agree with Dawn!

You are right, two thermometers. I'm of the New Calendar variety too, so I hear what you are saying about the Thanksgiving interlude.

James,
that sounds like an exciting bus ride, do people watch you beat yourself up or do they just ignore you?
