Bowled over by the Bagwhan

THE BAGWHAN shakes in his booties
a celestial/planet alignment/volcanic/tsunami/meteoric bet is about to
happen this weekend in the NFL; stay tuned.
2 nite: we are now 27-24 + $15
lay back and bet the OVER 70 (1 bowl of baksheesh)
the shit comes down this weekend
the air is cold
the mind is clean
the bet of the BRIGHT SHINING MOON is on!

i have gotten into arguments with other orthodox christians about this , but my father and his sister, who was the only other bjellos relative in this geographic area, made certain to me that SERBIAN christmas was january 7th not the 6th.
what do i know?
we took our tree down on the 8th.
maybe we are the true heathens,
no matter; the bet of the year goes on the 8th.

This came through Jono's work e-mail today:

"The Milan office will be closed on Friday, 6 January 2006 in observance of the Feast of the Epiphany.

"The Epiphany (which means apparition or manifestation) honors the arrival of the Magi and the first public presentation of the Baby Jesus.

"Italians believe that animals can talk on the night of Epiphany so owners feed them well. Fountains and rivers in Calabria run with olive oil and wine and everything turns briefly into something to eat: the walls into ricotta, the bedposts into sausages, and the sheets into lasagna."

Who knew?

Orthodox Christmas is definitely the 7th, by the way.

Sleeping in a bed of warm lasagna noodles is one of life's great pleasures. And certainly a religious experience.
