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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

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

Hah!  "New house, full basement," indeed.  Most SoCal houses don't have basements...except for very expensive homes in places like Beverly Hills and Bel Air. 

My JW sister is annoyed that I'm referring to Freddie as a Basement Cat, but then she was annoyed that I named a sweet black cat we had in the 1970s & '80s "The Devil."  But he did remind me of a Tasmanian Devil.  And so what? As long as I am the only Servant to Cats in this house, I get to call them whatever I want.  Tee-hee!

Carl, I don't like the t.v. on when someone isn't watching it either.  I like quiet.  I don't like any kind of music that makes me sad.  I have to have upbeat music, or classical.  I hate sad songs.

Steph, I love the cat belt, lol.

I actually was sociable last night and went out for dinner with a friend.  I know she thinks the anti-religious stuff I post on FB is terrible.  We did not talk about religion at all.  She's about the only old friend I have left that is really religious.  At least she voted for Obama! lol.

I agree, it is very easy to unintentionally click on "stop following". Things get kind of uninteresting when it happens on this site. 

Comment by Patricia on October 25, 2013 at 3:36pm

I'm forever hitting the ''stop following'' .......I find it's way too close to the main links.

Yup, new house, full basement....the only solution!!!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 25, 2013 at 3:16pm

Sk8eycat, I did the same thing a few weeks ago.  Accidentally stopped following this group (it's kinda easy to do.)  I got a little suspect when I wasn't getting any notices of activity. 

Regarding your cats, I think we all know what you need to do to fix the situation.  You'll just have to move to a new house that has a basement.  No other way around it.  

Comment by sk8eycat on October 25, 2013 at 2:55pm

Hello again!  I goofed, and accidentally clicked on "Stop Following" about the same time that our adopted Basement Cat moved in.

She was upset because we don't have a basement, so she took over the den/junk room.  Pumpkin's nose was out of joint because he thought that room was his private property.  Things are finally smoothing out a little...no more snarling and hissing, anyway.

*whew!* I have an awful lot of catching up to do in here!

(LOVE the Cat Belt, but I imagine there was quite a bit of clawing and yowling before the cat accepted it.)

I have music playing in my house all day long. TV in the evenings, then some silence before bed. I listen to music on my headphones when my husband is watching his football. I'm not a sports fan of any sort other than maybe some Olympic events.

We NEED that cat belt Steph!!!!   Hahahaha!!!!

Comment by Steph S. on October 25, 2013 at 12:04pm

oh yes ... music too.

Yes - everyone go get a cat. Right now. hehe

Well it is Friday!! Yay

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 25, 2013 at 11:02am

Mindy, yes, that is odd.  lol   I really like listening to music or having it in the background.  The genre I choose depends on my mood or what activity I'm doing.  (Yes, I love pure silence as well.) 

I've always been annoyed when people have the television on in their home but aren't watching it.  A lot of businesses also have TV's which I find equally disruptive and annoying.  There's nothing worse than having to be subjected against your will to "The View" or some soap opera.
