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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

I change avatars, among many other things as well, because boredom comes in & tells me to change something! The damn dr. won't give me a body transplant, so I change what I can! Although he said he would do it for cash, & only on Thursdays.

I've been having trouble getting in to A/N for most of the week, & my server company tech thinks the new modem/router is not compatible with the internet plan we have. It's just a month or so old, but he ordered a different replacement one sent, & I expect it next week. I tried this Ubuntu laptop, Windows7 desktop, & netbook, as well as my little android to get on A/N for 3 solid days......nothing. The only thing they all have in common are the server, &/or the modem/router. When I do get in here, I try to remember not to close the page.

I thought at first I had screwed something up with being so new to Ubuntu, but after trying all the others, I figured it could not be me.

My jewelry is never off because I love the stuff, but I dress up a bit, & wear makeup to go to town, simply because many people in this town look like complete slobs, & I don't want to appear not to care about my grooming. It's rather disgusting to see people in the grocery stores who can't be bothered to change into clean clothes or wash their faces beforehand.

Rather shocked to hear your news Carl! Glad you got help in time before something more drastic happened. Maybe you could fly here, see my dr. & we could get a body transplant discount.....sort of like buy one, get one half price or something!

........I try...........

Oops! *enjoy BEING invisible.

It becomes SO obvious when you reach the point where you're past your "prime." I actually sorta being invisible. Young guys are very courteous to me though. They call me Ma'am, and hold doors for me. I think I remind them of their mothers.
I am sitting in the grocery store parking lot, waiting for this deluge to let up! Glad we don't live near a river or creek. Our house does sit on a water table though, so sometimes water in the basement, even with the sump-pump, etc.

True, that. Looks and appearance give positive reactions. I once saw my ex-dentist and her receptionist reduced to giggling schoolgirls by a "handsome hunk". They didn't even care that his credit cards were rejected and he couldn't pay. The dentist looked very disappointed when she saw that I was the next patient.

Sorry I misspelled your name Chris.  I may have been doing it for a long time.  Giving myself 20 lashes with a wet noodle.

Comment by booklover on August 23, 2014 at 8:27am

Oops!  I accidentally deleted my whole post.  I was just saying, Spud, that you're right, people treat you better if you're dressed nicer, etc.  Sad, but true. They also judge what you drive. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2014 at 8:15am

Patricia, when I said I don't like avatars changing too often, I hope you didn't take offense.  I just had the thought that you might because you've been changing yours lately.

I just get temporarily confused when I see a new avatar.  It is my problem, not yours.

You are one of my best friends, and whatever you do is fine by me.

By the way, I've been wanting to tell you:  That purple cat is attractive.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2014 at 8:04am

Mindy, I'm also glad that real friends don't care about weight here.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2014 at 8:00am

Relatively speaking, I'm not vain either, but I do get embarrassed by my overweight when I have to take my clothing off in front of a doctor &/or nurse.

I also like to dress nicely when I go to town.  It's not all vanity because I've read that you get much better service when you're well-dressed.
