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.

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

I get the daily emails of the cat pictures and the dog pictures. It's a great pick-me-up when I'm having a rough day. Fail Blog is a blast to surf through. I can't believe how many different sites they have now!

I wish I had your sense of humor, Steph - your LOL Cats are great! :)

Hi Tammy! I made lolcats myself - not necessarily all the ones I am posting. They are great!

sk8eycat gave you the link to the Cheezburger site. It's so much fun - I go there everyday. I just made 8 LOLs the other day.

Thanks for the cute kitty sk8eycat!

Ian that is so cute!

Lillie I hope you all are ok. Take care.

We had a high today of 109! The expected was 106!

booklover, you can also link to Fail Blog via the Cheezburger main page, either by checking the bar at the top,  or the huge list at the very bottom of the page.

I don't envy those in Florida right now. Good to hear you're OK, Lillie Fleur.

Comment by Lillie on June 26, 2012 at 4:57pm

I think the storm has decided to cross the state somewhere around Gainesville and exit around Jacksonville.  That is somewhat south of us so we have even had a little sun today.  A big pine fell in my flower bed but missed the house and all of my plants, thank goodness.  I guess the Florida Gators will be building the ark.

Another funny site that I look @ every day is Fail Blog.  I don't know if it's one or two words, just type it into Google.  I am bad @ linking things! lol
