Susan, I am delighted you are participating in the "Death and Dying" discussion. It is so hard to break away from the dread and doom of perceptions about death and dying and I think we can reframe the whole subject into a more enlightened way.
Hi Susan, great to have your join "Bringing Economics Down to Earth". There are a lot of steaming kettles on the topic of economics and the brewing will produce some interesting future events. Welcome to the fun.
Nope. Not going home. I attribute it to the Cher bump that he got when she tweeted that she would be in the audience if he made it on another week. But, you are correct. He should have gone home. Still, go Chaz, even though your dancing sucks. I'm so glad Carson is still on!
Because of our toy talk, I looked at your page (to see how old you are), and I noticed that you like DWTS. Zombie jesus, I am having so much more fun watching it this season. How can anyone resist Ricki Lake, Nancy Grace, Chaz, and Carson?! And the burn guy...oh, the burn guy. That show and Glee are the highlights of my tv watching each week.
Re: Tbyte...and the Childless discussions. I'm popping into the discussions just to read what's been posted, and I did leave a comment in another thread today....one that he hasn't invaded yet.
He's a troll, and those types thrive on attention, even if it's negative. So the only thing I can do is ignore him. I think we should ALL ignore him, and try to carry on posting our comments as though he doesn't exist.
Also, I think I left a note in Ailurophiles that I was going to be tied up for a few days while I worked on The Pet Press. I finished early yesterday AM, but I'm TIRED, and half blind from looking at this monitor for hours at a time. Proofing is the hardest. But I love it!
Anyroad, I'll be back, I still have quite a bit to say about why I never wanted children.
I learned the hard way on another Atheist forum that there's nothing that can be done about trolls, unless the moderator is able and willing to block them from posting. We had fundies Copying and Pasting the same buybull verses over and over, and all the moderator did was tell us to "play nicely, now, children." I cancelled my membership. I don't have the patience anymore to deal with twits.
I'm going to be 72 (AAARGH!) in a few weeks, and I feel I've earned the right to be crabby and bitchy when I want to. Ya think?
Truly no need to apologise about keeping quiet when JSH was on a rampage. It was not worth saying anything. She was like a high speed train wreck - best to get out of the way before you are run over. I've told felch the same thing. One must choose their battles and she was not worth the energy.
I'm not much for sports, but I have lived numerous different places in the US and the Packers fans are the most loyal fans I have ever seen here. They rival some of the UK football fans. I had a blast being in a bar in Milwaukee rooting for the Packers with a packed house!
