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

Patricia that is so true! Thanks for posting that quote

Thanks for the Meow Mix cat and vampire skills chuckles, booklover.

We’ll miss Chris.

I haven’t decorated, just bought candy.

Yes, you’re seductive enough, Steph. *snort*

Our new TV was just delivered. The old one died just before the 3rd debate.

Have a good day, All!

Hey Melinda - so sad to hear you are feeling bad. I just adore those cute cat pics you posted. I am taking them for my collection.

Everyone get their house all decorated for Halloween? This year is going so fast!

Much better this a.m., thanks everyone.  Hope your bill isn't too high Chris!

I hope things get better for you Melinda. And "get well soon" to your pc Chris.

Comment by Plinius on October 25, 2012 at 1:40am

I love your Meow Mix picture, Melinda! I hope tomorrow will be a better day for you!

But I won't be here for some days. The RAID-0 of my pc crashed and today they will collect it and reprogram. I hope they don't find anything to up the bill...

Melinda, sorry to learn you have a bad day. Take good care. 

Comment by booklover on October 24, 2012 at 9:16pm

Thanks Carl!  The Meow Mix cat isn't mine, but I do have 3!  I am feeling better than I did earlier today.  :)

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 24, 2012 at 9:04pm

Melinda, sorry you're not feeling well.  I hope the continuation of your meds and a good night's sleep help you to feel better in the morning.  BTW, that Meow Mix photo is hilarious.  I'm SO jealous of all the people in this group who have cats!  I have fond and funny memories of the two cats a roommate of mine had years ago.

Good night to you as well.  --Carl
