I don’t have a quirky web presence but nor am I very interesting in real life
When a girl texts you this in the middle of night, you keep her.
"Since going out with me, do you think you eat less potatoes?"
"Do I fill for you the potato-shaped hole that everyone has in their souls?"

What angels are apparently supposed to look like according to the bible
They had 6 wings, covered with eyes on the wings. And had two eyes on their face, but used 2 wings to cover their face at all times because if a mortal ever saw their face they would die.
The bible mentions multiple faces, being covered in eyeballs, constant singing, lion heads etc.
Besides being described as beasts and monsters, they’re practically brainless drones. Heavenly angels are only one step removed from demons. The only difference is demons fell from heaven because they chose to follow Lucifer, who was an angel (angel of music and one of god’s favorites). So they are these eyeball covered animal mashed up monsters who were only created to worship for eternity (part of humanities creation was so that something would choose to love god, not just worship him because they were created to).
Angels fall into a lot of new age and conspiracy beliefs.We were taught that the supernatural realms went in the order of Heaven, Hell, then Earth. So when the angels fell from heaven with Lucifer, some fell through hell and landed on Earth. We were taught they intermarried with early humans and created giants and taught witch craft to women.
Technically, angels have made their only moral choice, and so experience morality only in theory.
Some angel characters are based on the non-humanoid or vaguely humanoid “canon” angels, which can be anything from a ball of wings covered in eyes to a huge, living wheel to animals on fire.
They’re abominations, they’re alien, they’re beyond us. They’re creatures that biology as we know it does not apply to. Often they do not love mankind, they love God and God alone.
Maybe angels taking on human form but describing just what they look like when they’re not wearing their skin.
Angels are such creepy and interesting.
Re-blogging mostly for the cool pic, but this account is a little poor. Instead of “eyeball covered animal mashed up monsters”, it could be argued that different angels look different according to different prophets, and vague references to “Winged Creatures” are often made. It’s worth pointing out though that the reaction of most people to be visited by angels in the Bible is more oh shit then yay, but that’s probs one of the consequences of one of the best known angels being the angel of death.
Also I’ve been reading Paradise Lost at the moment so I’m thinking about Angels a lot. There’s an interesting bit in there about the distinctions between humans and angels that comes out in Raphael’s conversation with Adam, where essentially Angels are more given to reason and humans to emotion, the implication being that it’s logical to worship God, even if it’s not something we want. Raph also warns against Adam eating of the tree of knowledge by making a fart joke.
There’s a couple of other things I take issue with in this description, but eh. This link might be interesting too: http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Angels/
With summer festivals in full swing, crowds in Glasgow have been finding their voice as chanting emerges from its wintry hibernation.
Plans to finally re-open Cathedral Street bridge in Glasgow — which has been shut for over 120 years — have been announced by Yes Scotland.
