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

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

Oh my quezicotil!  Mindy, that a great one!

Comment by The Flying Atheist yesterday

Regarding the current topic, all of us here seem to be Einstein's compared to the people who comment after online news articles.  I think we all deserve a pat on the back for that!

Comment by The Flying Atheist yesterday

Ha!  Good one, Mindy.

"Optirectomy". What a great word! I'll try to work that into every conversation now.

Yes, I could develop an aversion to verse instead of versus.

Comment by booklover yesterday

When people say someone VERSE someone, instead of Versus.

Continued on.  Can you continue off?

Free gift.  If you have to pay for it, it's not a gift.

I'll quit now.

How about (gritting teeth) "wellness"?  Whatever happened to "health"?

Comment by Idaho Spud on Tuesday

I'm far from perfect, and a lot of things annoy me, but I usually refrain from criticizing people, except when they can't hear me, like when I'm watching TV.

One of the worst annoyances that has developed in the last few years may not even be incorrect, but it tasks me.  It's used a lot in documentaries.  When talking about what someone did, instead of saying "He became the third president"  they say "He was to become the third president."

Never remember hearing that most of my life, but in the last 25 years, I've noticed it more and more.

Thanks for all the "anguished langwitch" laughs!

We had a good discussion last year on the "Decline in Writing Accuracy".

Comment by Plinius on Tuesday

I'm sure I make lots of mistakes, especially in Dutch, but in English I correct what I've written most of the time. I see other's mistakes but I don't like to play the teacher when I'm not at work.
