Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Steph, I like the cute black kitty hug.

Melinda, I like the fortunate cat with a box. :)

Chris, if your cat purrs after you stumble over him, it seems like he understands you didn't do it on purpose.  Is that right?  How about the rest of you?  Do your cats understand accidents?

Dido IS beautiful!  My sister and I also loved cardboard boxes as kids!  We always made little houses also!  Whenever we get one now, we make little houses for the cats, and also just let them play in it until they're tired of it. :)

Chris, Dido is beautiful!!  I love the black, shiny coat.  By the way, I had a cardboard box when I was a little kid.  My parents purchased a new refrigerator and I got them to leave the box in the basement for me.  My father cut a door flap and some windows and I had a little house!

Leave some for us Steph! Here's Dido's picture for his fanclub.

Loren, I always learn so much from your posts, I'm happy that I could post some things you like!~ Melinda

Comment by Steph S. on April 10, 2013 at 9:38am

Thank you everyone! Black cats are my favorite. Wish I could just have them all. I wish I could do more to help the animals. I donate money and everything and I hope this summer to volunteer some time at the animal shelter. I need see how tough and time consuming that class is going to be. I need more time in the day. Love the lolcat Melinda! I am enjoying all the posts here.

Melinda, that graphic post about "no worth without god" is CLASSIC!  [right-mouse-click / Save As...!]  Thanks!  The box-cat is great too; our cats LOVE boxes!

Comment by booklover on April 10, 2013 at 9:16am

Me too Chris!  Both of my black cats have been/are male, long-haired, and grumpy!  But I love them!!!! :)

How I wish I had a cardboard box! ;-) I have been owned by black cats for over twenty years, but they always brought me good luck. Even when I trip over a fat black cat when I go to the toilet in the night - then he purrs to me, so that can't be bad luck.
