I just want to say that I want you on an anti-zombie team with me if it comes down to it :) :) :)
What could possibly go wrong with locking up a bunch of zombies in the barn? I have a plan for our survivors. I think that they should find an abandoned mansion and fortify it. They could then gather numerous supplies and stay put for a while. Take up gardening and make sure they have a dedicated water source. Zombies don't appear to be very adaptive to strong fortifications. :) ;) :)
Now I give thanks to the people who grow the food, and distribute it - and the Pagan in me still thanks Mother Earth for nourishing us. I also think it's nice to thank the turkey, pig, chicken, cow, sheep, fish, etc. that perished so that we might eat. Needless to say, my Mormon family don't invite me to say the Thanksgiving/Christmas prayer any more. My Uncle was all, "fer chrissakes now's he's praying to the damn food."
Aren't cats great? People who don't like them seem to think they all have the same personality. Not! 'Dale', lol is our 2nd huge black cat. The grey one is Dora, and the stripey one is Lula. We also have a black Lab named Molly.
The greatest reward for fan fiction writers is in knowing that they have fans who are enjoying their stories and essays. Thanks for your support and I look forward to chatting with you again in the near future.
I am familiar with them, that's one reason I commented on Austin seeming to be a hub of free thinkers in an unlikely place. Although I'm not that surprised, because when I still lived in the "great" Mormon theocracy that is Utah, I found that Salt Lake City had an underground free-thinker society that was quite well developed. I'm a big fan of the Atheist Experience, the Non-Prophets and Godless Bitches (they call themselves that!!!) As well as the individual atheist rockstar gunslingers Matt Dillahunty and AronRa, who are minor heroes to me. Your friendship and open-mindedness on my sadness at having to say goodbye to magick is really appreciated. Cheers, and as another atheist fave says, may god be less. (instead of god bless!)
Thanks Steph S., for your kindness. I was actually very jazzed to find Atheist Nexus, and eagerly plunged into everything, and then I saw this Ex-Wiccan sub-group and it made me sad. It was something I had mostly ignored since I've called myself an atheist. I have had some cognitive dissonance over the years, and then a couple of years ago I discovered Richard Dawkins, The Atheist Experience, and the snowball that is YouTube atheist pages. I couldn't be what I was before, although I'm keeping some of it, the stuff that doesn't set off the cog-diss alarms. It is nice to have someone to communicate about this with that isn't judgmental. One other question. What is it in the water in Austin that creates all you atheists? LOL. That city, inexplicably in the center of the bible-belt, seems to be the center of the atheist movement. Any ideas?
