To the people who are advocating "taking back Christmas" by saying "Merry Christmas" instead of the more "PC" Happy Holidays? With the subtext of "Keep Christ in Christmas"?Personally, I don't like…Continue

We need to put together a dictionary of phrases that express our meanings without invoking god. My reason for doing this is that i don't want people to think I'm religious, so I don't want to say…Continue

"O, Cat and crowd, rebelliousness (rebellionosity?) I can see, and after a lot of digging in non-standard dictionaries, I found the 2 bits of information that make "embiggen" humorous. So at issue is not whether I have a sense of humor, but…"

"If a baby is born with a 6th finger on each hand, which does not interfere with the function of the other fingers on the hand, should it be removed? The finger is unsightly but not crippling. Where's the line?"

"That's because it's not a finger. It's a metacarpal, which is the bone inside your hand connecting your wrist to your knuckle. So, as you can feel on the back of your hand, it has no joints."

Oh, Natalie, I am so sorry to hear about Sammy.  I've been there, done that so many times, and the pain each time is always the same.

Very wise of you to adopt again right away; one can never have too many love-bugs. (Well, except for the people who over-do, and they have an illness.) 

I had a black cat more than 30 years ago who played so vigorously that he would have to pause and pant for a while.  I named him "T. Devil," because he reminded me of a film clip I'd seen of a Tasmanian Devil...and because I wanted to gross out my fundie mother and JW sister.  Heh!  My sister insisted on calling him "Angelito." Silly.  

He was a love-bug, too.  Slept in my arms almost every night of his 16-year life.  He also used to sit beside my father in the recliner to watch the news every night (We were living with my parents at the time because they were both in poor health and needed help around the house). After Dad died, The Devil still got into his chair every night and waited for someone to turn on the TV.

Be well, and happy with "Mak the Knife."  ("Hand-Slasher"?) And post some pictures, please.

Thank you, Natalie.  I felt out of line kidnapping the Wanderer's discussion.

Thanks for adding, I was just about to add you, and yeah I feel the same way, lectures from strangers about my identity are one of those pet peeves >(
