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.

Hi all. GrinningCat's Dad had a stroke. Maybe you could leave him a supportive comment. I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

All religions seem silly to me although the one I'm used to (Church of England Xtianity) more dull than the others.

Stealing the fireside cat. Just come home from a night's work on a cold morning and that's exactly how I feel.

I remember refusing to bow my head & close my eyes in church when I was around 8 or 9, & looking around to see everyone in that position just struck me as so idiotic, & rather weirdly funny. I never bowed or closed again, & nobody knew it as far as I knew. I also didn't get struck down......hahahaha!!!!

Love the fireplace cat Steph!

You guys can call me whatever you want~ booklover or Melinda :)

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 25, 2012 at 6:02pm

Thanks Joan.  I also often wonder what people prefer to be called, and will try my best to remember any preferences.  

However, as my dad was fond of saying, "you can call me anything, just don't call me late for dinner."

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 25, 2012 at 5:55pm

Thanks friend Steph.  Wish I could sleep as well as your fall & winter cat!  I'm keeping it.

I agree that religion is so very silly from the outside, and I would also add incredibly stupid and often evil.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 25, 2012 at 5:48pm

Spud, I responded to your preference, but apparently I did not push the "Add" button. Thank you for letter us know how you like to be addressed. I, too, had problems figuring out how to direct my comments, so just started copy and pasting names to my responses. That wasn't satisfactory for me either. So "Spud" it is. 
Are there any other people who want to be addressed differently than your site name. 
Sentient Biped?

Booklover? 

sk8eycat? I have to copy your name because I usually spell this wrong. 

Just let me know and I shall be more than happy to comply. Please forgive me if I fail.  

No! don't forgive me ... I don't believe in forgiveness. Hit me once, there is no forgiveness appropriate . 

Comment by Steph S. on October 25, 2012 at 5:34pm

I agree sk8eycat - it is silly once you see it from the outside looking in.

Comment by Steph S. on October 25, 2012 at 5:33pm

Those are both great I laughed Ian and bookover!!

And Spud I will call you friend. : )

Comment by Steph S. on October 25, 2012 at 5:32pm

Ok Spud - I often wonder what people prefer to be called. So Spud it is - thanks for telling me.

So nice to see you here today.
