Yay, new phones come on Wednesday! I'd like to try IM now, but I think I'll wait 'til then.
I'm on Xbox live now, gamertag Bold Heresy. I need to look, because it seems there's an IM on that too.
I just read my last comment and that sounds bad! "Can't get into detail"...shyeah, right! What a monstrous old gossip I sound like! Well there's a lot more crap going on besides that, and what I did mention is actually very vague. But at least things seem to be settling down.
Can't get detailed, but her BF was raised a home-schooled fundie and it is fairly clear to all of us from his tendencies that is is homosexual and is filled with self-loathing repression because of his upbringing. He's a jerk, but you have to feel a little sorry for anyone raised to hate themselves. Most of the immediate stress has come in with my brother having thrashed his room (our only extra space), requiring a last-minute do-it-yourself contracting job fixing the holes in the wall and painting it up nice, requiring us to find storage space for ALL HER STUFF while we race to do that. My grades have been hurting too, and now I must ramp up my efforts to fix that. The subject already wasn't my specialty.
Well, you asked for it, didn't you? :) I guess it's interesting, in a Jerry Springer meets Divorce Court kind of way.
Man, this is bad. I forgot to even look at this. Outside of the usual, all hell broke loose in the family because of my sister and her BF. Full-on insanity every hour on the hour for a week or so, and we're still cleaning up.
I must make a note, because I don't want to forget about this IM stuff.
I'm looking for work and taking courses online, so I don't always get back onto my social networks very quickly. Don't take that as a slight! :)
But in this case, you're right. I haven't used an instant messanger yet--not sure how. I probably should look into it, since I've had a few people asking me about instant messanger in the last couple years or so.
I was on the chat board. I saw that you were online. I remember that yesterday or the day before, you were trying to get on the chat. The room is usually black. Today, it had a ton of people in it. Here's why, I dragged them in. If you go to the main page, you can scroll down. The bottom left side shows people who recently got online.
Part of me wants to just let them stay in la-la land.
Maybe they just have to figure things out alone. Then again, the number of them is so great. They have the "upper hand" and more chance to get their own into power. It's just a bad situation.
Have you always been an atheist or did someone guild you in that direction? Just curious :)
Hey welcome to the Nexus :)
I'm enjoying your blog...kind of.
I have a love/hate relationship with facing the religious.
Throwing the logical smack-down can be great fun, but sometimes I think I am punishing myself when there is clearly no way to use logic with blind followers. I even use the bible to my favor, but funny enough, the most religious haven't even read it.
