Too much ouzo, chased w/ retsina shots? I don't think that's coffee in that pot.

And hey, why let a good buzz go to waste?? Let's make a video and share with the whole world!

Happy (sober) Easter- P&B.

This is one of my all time favorites. Too bad the guy's Greek is so bad! By the way...just got back from our lamb feast...with lay-mon.

You know how everything in Orthodoxy has symbolic meaning? Here is another fave of mine--although it skirts the sacrilegious fringe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsVZcNjmIsc

Kat: I just love Mrs. Carberry!
Wish I could juggle those grocery bags like she does (I, indeed, tried it once...I hit myself in a most unfortunate place in the process...anyhoo)...
Fr. Ted just cracks me up. You gotta have a bit o' the Irish to "get it", yeah?

The Crescat said...

Yes... and got the red headed offspring to prove it. My mom's family is from Sligo. My dad is from San Juan. Go figure... I didn't stand a chance at normalcy.

The Crescat said...

Dixie... who says the Orthodox have no sense of humor!?! Fr. Vasily says "Is outrage!"

Kat: I've got the whole Anglo/Irish thing goin' on...I think they call it "split personality" or "conflicted"...and I'm what they call a "hidden redhead"...I had very light "auburn" hair as a child (red/brown) that darkened as I got older and now it's turning white...but I have red hair in my beard! And the "temperament" of a red head...Crazy!!

My OCD is really bad tonight (must be the chocolate!)...this guy is like trying to get away from not looking at a train wreck...I watched it again, I'm ashamed to say...
It reminds me that my sister (who with her husband raises sheep) told me last night after the Easter Vigil that her two sons (one in college, one a senior in h.s.) went out and slit the throat of a lamb for some Armenians who wanted it for their Orthodox Easter (they wanted it "fresh")...yikes! That was one thing;
then she said, they had to get the gun (from under lock and key, from their dad, since even SHE doesn't have the key(!) so they could shoot and butcher a pig!)...all I said to her was, "I hope they weren't fighting with each other then"; to which she said, "Yeah, I was hoping that when I heard the 'shot', both of them would be returning..."
Anyway...the butchered lamb and
"lamb innards soup" brought on all this babbling and I'll be quiet now.
Both nephews are still alive and well:<)!

That was too funny.

I love all things Greek.

I miss St. Nicholas' Festival held every September in St. Louis. Kinda like St. Patricks day when everyone becomes Irish, well, we're all tempted to dance and eat and claim we're Greek.

Oh Yum.

Shared this with my husband who in turn showed it to his 100%-no-mistaking-Greek co-worker. Now I can't get him to stop saying "with lemon!" Very funny!
