I thought the cat pic joke was funny. I shall have to keep it in mind for my blog about religion.
I actually think Asperger's is more an extreme of personality traits with associated sensitivities (sensory issues & food reactions for us unfortunately)
Both of my kitties were rescues. We got our first one (Whiskey) when he was almost not a kitten anymore, and we lived with roommates who had dogs. Then when my then fiance and I moved out, Whiskey would meow and walk around looking for something, which we figured meant he was lonely. That was when we got Vader, who is a jerk! :D haha I love him but he is so annoying. They keep each other company and are very sweet. I'll have to post a picture. :)
No worries! I am super-connected to email and internets because of work, but I slack at home ^_^ I would *love* to have the time and space to take care of foster kitties someday. Have fun and thanks for the welcome!
My kitty's older too. I feed her Royal Canin Persian 30, because she's long haired. And once a day she gets Fancy Feast too. Yeah, I've been brain dead plenty of times too. ;) I feel for you. I get cat withdrawal after only a few days.
Greetings, sk8eycat! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Jan. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Thanks for writing, Ms. Cat! I live with 3 lovely felines (one does get rahther carried away!), who approve of your friendship.
I think you'll get a kick out of the video on my profile page.
Getting ready to leave home, where I've been cooped up by snow since last Thursday. Curating a reading and may not be able to make it back home tonight. 3rd bad snowstorm since the 12th or 13th of December ... and I thought I was moving to a warmer climate. The Ice Age Cometh!
Don't know when I'll be in soCal, but I promise you to make mincemeat of your sister.
I am new here, enjoying the debates, since it is still not easy to find atheists around :-)
I am a tribal fusion dancer... posted a video recently.
I like ice shows very much, but it seems extremly difficult. They are not common here in Brazil, you can see only in tv.
It is nice to meet you.
You have nothing to be embarrassed about! You were in an environment that basically forced certain ideas upon you as fact, and that you felt you had to go along with it, is just a natural phenomenon. The fact that you have been able to shed these ideas, means you have asked yourself some serious questions and faced the facts that cannot be denied. And now you are free :) Isn't it a wonderful feeling? I too am honored to be your friend :)
Welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that fictional gods and pervasive religions are used to deceive and control vulnerable superstitious people including defenceless children;
----and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
