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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

Sorry to put a damper on things, but did anybody else read what the head(?) of the NRA said today?  That ALL schoolteachers should carry guns in the classroom?

I've been gritting my teeth for an hour.  How can anybody be so self-serving and STUPID?

Thanks Ian! The container at the bottom of the flat will be overflowing after xmas - but husband and I are going to behave as usual.

Yes, Sinterklaas brought me a chocolate letter C: one of the people in my class of English told me that the old saint had it brought to the wrong house - that's the usual way with Sinterklaas presents.

Did he bring you anything?

It's the same here in Denmark, Chris. Every time there's any public holiday people buy enough food to last at least a week and a lot of it gets thrown away. I really doubt that it brings any pleasure to people. I'm all for enjoyment but that's not the same as consumption so no, I don't think you're grumpy.

Did you get anything from Sinte Klaas?

booklover, I had the same impression then read your comment. This is an example of memes that Ruth has been so good at helping understanding memes and their infectious qualities. Let me think, a positive meme might be,
"It is so shiny, it reminds me of being out on a clear night and seeing all those stars; I wonder if there are cats out there" or
"It is so shiny, stars have come indoors"

Thanks Steph!  Love your LOL tree-cat.  I have a cat sleeping under our Yule Tree right now! 

Happy Winter Solstice everyone!!! :)

Hey Booklover! Have a good day with your shopping. I know it will be a busy one. I love that lolcat - so cute.

Comment by booklover on December 21, 2012 at 8:02am

Steph, Great LOL Cats!

Chris, I agree about the stores.  I must grocery-shop today, and I am not looking forward to it!!!I don't like they used the word "murder" for this, but cats do destroy things by playing with them!!!!   I know they're mimicking killing their prey though.
