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 Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

So today someone ruined my funny post, and Ivtotally lowered myself to speaking to this person like a juvenile. I don't know what came over me, but I was furious! It had been fun, and then someone ruined it, and I reacted badly.
How was everyone else's day? Lol. Oh! And I finally got a flu shot! :)

HA Carl!  Bad pun or not, it was funny!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 14, 2014 at 2:42pm

Ian, I guess we can say that you'll be less shifty this year.

Augh....I know that's a really bad pun.  :)

Comment by booklover on January 14, 2014 at 2:33pm

lol about the dog pic and caption Ian!  And 3 extra shifts off per year is okay! :)

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 14, 2014 at 1:08pm

That's a funny dog meme, Ian.  Very cute!

Comment by Ian Mason on January 14, 2014 at 12:34pm

Was told today that I'm now old enough for "senior days" at work. That means 3 extra shifts off per year. How nice!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 14, 2014 at 12:20pm

Thinking about you, Chris.  Take care of yourself as well.  Make sure to give yourself some "me time" so you don't overwhelm yourself. 

Comment by Ian Mason on January 14, 2014 at 12:10pm

That's a lot to take on, Chris. Hope your b-i-l gets recovers. I agree with Mindy - take good care of yourself too. Best wishes and hugs from here :-)

Comment by booklover on January 14, 2014 at 8:53am

That's a lot of stress Chris!  I'm sorry about your brother-in-law!  Hugs {{{}}}} to you!  He is lucky to have you and your partner to do all of that for him.  I hope his cat gets to know you and isn't afraid anymore.  I also hope, of course, that he comes out of his coma okay.  Take good care of yourself also!

Comment by Plinius on January 14, 2014 at 6:51am

I will be very busy for some time. I have one brother-in-law, who suffers from Asperger's and from anxiety disorder. He's got a hemorrhage in the brain, probably from a fall. Sunday night he got an emergency operation and we're still waiting for him to come out of the coma. While waiting, we went to his apartment to take care of the cat. We hadn't been there for years, brother-in-law hates visitors. But the cat had taken on his anxiety disorder and was scared to death of us. The apartment was a shambles, the sort you see in real life TV-programs - everything was out of order, broken, very dirty and there was a lot of garbage. We attacked the mountains of work at once, but there is enough to do for a month at least. And we still have to wait how brother-in-law fares. He could become his old disastrous self, or get another handicap, or he might die. Whatever happens, my partner and I will have to clean up. I'll read here every day, but most of the time I'm in public transport somewhere between the disaster area, hospital and home.
