and now for something completely different...

Okay, my previous post was a little on the heavy side, so this time let's go from the not-so-sublime to the definitely ridiculous. Last time I said "don't look if you aren't feeling serious!" This time—don't look if you aren't feeling silly!

The Onion Dome has not been updated for a long time. The editor, Alex Riggle, has gone on hiatus and left a couple of very fine webbabas in charge. And even though they love the Dome, they have lives, so they aren't able to get it updated as often as they and the Domies of the world would like. I have had a couple of articles accepted by them, but those will only be up whenever they have time to put a new issue together.

So while we are waiting for the next issue—I for one will never last till Lent without something resembling an Onion Dome fix-- my newest piece(not one of the ones the Dome is holding)will appear at the Rafters Scriptorium instead.

This one is a lesson in "be careful what you put in your blog; anything you post can and will be used against you!";-)

A mere two days after Christmas, a member of our very own community was so very foolish as to remark on her own blog for all the world to see "I am sick of chocolate". Her punishment for such an intemperate remark is now recorded at the Rafters Scriptorium.

And oh yeah—see all you ladies at the women's group dessert night…… ;-)

Thank you Mat Donna, this is hilarious! It makes me happy that we can be silly and are secure enough as Orthodox to not take ourselves too seriously :D

I look forward to Fr Lawrence's visit this weekend to our parish!

What? Fr. L is gong to be away? How did I not know that?

Obviously I didn't make it to dessert night. I had a few automobile issues at work ... if you all discussed plans to assist the Chattaways - keep in the loop, OK

I enjoyed your post. thanks.
