today's gospel...

For indeed the days are coming in which they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, wombs that never bore, and breasts which never nursed!'
...could be construed as an argument about contraception/"childfree" marriages in these last days.

everything is superfantastic

I had a grand day. I got the jeorb I interviewed for [see charm school and other posts], I took the drug test in time [I not ready to face that], skipped the current jaerb [may interfere with my zvonar ambitions], went to vespers, had dinner with this girl [my "valentine", I suppose], tried that dratted Goldschlager with apple juice, I'm going to have the first week of Lent completely free before starting the new jorb, and I had a magnificent slice of veggie pizza for lunch today. Brighter than nothing, smarter than nobody. Things are quite fine. And tomorrow: the divine liturgy horribly early in the morning and skipping work again. There is nothing better in this world. This is gzt, signing out.

I will drop out and become a zvonar!

So I spent a lot of today downloading free mp3s of Russian bell music, they're all over the internets, and I decided that I must drop out and become a zvonar. I bet I'd get a great hat. So much better than the workaday life I've got going now.

River of Fire

When Thou, O God, shalt come to earth with glory,
And all things tremble,
And the river of fire floweth before Thy judgment seat,
And the books are opened, and the hidden things made public,
Then deliver me from the unquenchable fire
And make me worthy to stand at Thy right hand, O Righteous Judge.
