Memphis

Hey All,

I am in Memphis, hangin with Stacy, its good times. Yesterday in Dallas the weather I had to suffer through was 80 degrees, and here in Memphis, its 70 today. very nice.

Anyways, they have a beautiful church here, I thought I could maybe borrow half of it to help out St.Herman's

So, here is the question of the day, not from a discussion, but a curiosity of mine.

Men, when you are visiting, do you stand or sit when you take a leak?

Oh, and I have acquired enough tobacco for the entire church for pascha. I will try to put new pictures up on flickr, but we'll see.

anyways, I am well, but its great to have the Island to keep in touch, so lets hear about the news from church.

Oh, and we are going to that canadian restaurant sometime.

peese,
David

I find this a difficult issue to take a definite moral stand on. I stand, but I have more than once wondered if it was a good idea. A couple of times it hasn't been. That' sit.

Stand. Of course you stand. When I hear a man standing in my bathroom I have half a mind to hand em a bottle of javex and a rag after he's done and tell em to get to work.

Sheesh. Some people's children.

cathedral dweller said...

geez. í'm such an idiot. i mean SIT.

sit.

of course you sit.

but maybe the ambiguity my typo has created is good in this case.

you sit? wow. could you come to my house and give some lessons?
I've tried to convince the, uh, 'men' of my household (who are rarely known to scrub a toilet) to SITALREADYFORPETESAKE!!
to no avail.
the havelings assure me that ALL of them sit (snicker), and that any boy who enters must learn the ropes or forever hold his pee. haha.

i am totally amazed that this is a conversation. i didn't know that there is a social faux pas involved if you pee the wrong way at someones house...

what i am wondering is what "canadian" food are they serving at this restaurant?

stand of course! It's all a feminist plot to undercut the one's who can. Under the guise of silly, so called, hygienic reasons, the attack is directed against so called aimless piddling. Those who can't cannot even imagine how and where the great artists of Western Civilization came up with their most inspiring works i.e. Manneken Piss in Brussels, the Fountains of Tivoli Gardens in Rome or the Great Fountain in Lake Geneva. There are no sitting fountains in Versailles either... stand of course!

Simply Victoria said...

and another thing, mr.pasivirta,
what kind of canadian do you call yourself giving us the temperature in FARENHEIT!?!
I had to scour the net for the conversion calculation!
80 F is 26 celcius, for any other baffled canadians interested:)
that's a hot day in the valley!
wow. enjoy!

ha! i guess i am still an american too; i did not even think at all when dave used F. degrees; of course i still understand inches, feet and miles more; KM always confuse me...

to the ethical issue: SIT or... clean and always put the SEAT BACK DOWN.

have fun enjoying warm weather; though i wish ottawa were COLDER. wimpy rain grey turning snow to torrents of water on roads, soaking boots. yuck. oh for minus 12 C. and sun....

Are you going to Graceland?

pasivirta said...

"I'm going to graceland, graceland, memphis Tennessee"

yes, we are going to graceland.

and btw, it got cold here today, and below freezing tomorrow apparently, freezing rain, and last night we had thunderstorms.

right now I am listening to a remix of some songs off Graceland. very strange, but cool.

About Celsius/Fahrenheit (Bunnytrail alert!). I pride myself in being able to convert back and forth. (This from living in both Canada and US.) I was challenging myself to see what "degree of frost" it was the other day when the F was -4! (Yes it was that cold here. Yikes!) That would be 20 degrees of frost, and/or -20C.

p. stand. weird discussion anyway. but perhaps next time i'm over vic...
