      I've had days like that. ((hugs))

      Thanks all-- most appreciated and I know that many of us know what it feels like at least some of the time. Big hugs to all of you... this week has been a little better for me; hopefully in your life too!

  2. Does no one hang out in chat any more?

      Thanks thanks-- how are you all? I think it's a good sign (at least for me) of healing when I drift away. Am enjoying the commentary here again. Hope you're well.

  4. Posted a secular humanist picture on fb and an aunt quoted scripture at me on it. Feeling both nervous and energized...

      good 4 u. :D That's a huge step, yaay you.

      it was honestly just a picture with a quote about how it's important to use evidence when believing something. She quoted a bible verse about blessed are those who believe but have not seen. An atheist friend of mine ended up going off on how she's rich for a scam and Jonestown proves what happens when people don't think. Lol. But no, I tend to be rather "quiet" on fb, even though I have to read fundy stuff from other people

      Well, that's cool I suppose. I've never posted anything related to religion on facebook. Except the quote: "It's easier to fool somebody than to convince them that they have been fooled." Although I don't think that people saw the connection to religion.

  5. my one year ex-c anniversary is on the 21st-- nothing like an apocalypse to celebrate! :)

      Anniversary, getting rid of the morontheists via rapture, and celebrate evil heathen Yuletide all the same day - triple win :)

  6. ugh, the crazy fundy xian extended family is emailing xmas plans already... dread!

  7. accidentally just read some "proofs" the xian god is real... didn't buy it, but it made me feel all loopy. Checking in here for some sanity! :)

      Positivist

      There is "evidence" for many viewpoints; there is also misappropriated and misapplied evidence. Remember that these existential questions have been contemplated since the dawn of consciousness. No one has a solid answer on anything--all are best guesses but the differenc lies in the degree of certainty and/or arrogance. The best we can do is evaluate the evidence and make a decision and move on. Be not shaken, Wings!

  8. hope you all have a great weekend... unwind, destress, love life, be your best! xo :)

      Well, I need a date first, soooo.. I'll just drink and relax this weekend and cross my fingers for the next :)

  9. I'm the worst of the worst of the black sheep... just learned my aunt has been telling people that during my three-month humanitarian aid internship in Africa all I did was "prance around" and travel and that I should've done an aid mission

      I don't know your aunt, but I'm willing to bet that people already know she's got a particular flair for misrepresentation.

      I'm proud of you. Keep on prancing.

  10. Irony- I work in diversity awareness and many of my xian family are bigots and homophobes mobilizing political action against "gender identity". Thanks for keeping me employed, jerks!

    1. florduh

      I guess that would be bittersweet irony.

  11. just realized the gap that exists between single me and my married-mom friends... pics of a birth on fb and everyone says, "that's so beautiful." I want to post, "that made me throw up a little!"

      It's not the kids part I find weird. It's the comments like, "that brought tears to my eyes, so joyful" on pictures of her literally giving birth, that I don't understand

      Sounds like something that needs to be submitted to STFU parents :P

      Lol... is that a site, Pudd? Sounds like my "home"

  12. omg, kristen, get off ex-c and do your work so you won't be having to do it at midnight!

  13. Reasons not to do groceries when tired... I was disappointed to find out the "vegetable beer soup" I was looking forward to trying was plain old "vegetable beef"... reading fail.

  14. Doing research for a work presentation (diversity in the workplace) and by 2031 the number of people with no religions expected to be at 21% in Canada. Woo hoo!

    1. Wings

      Wings

      By 2031, the number of people having a non-Christian religion in Canada would almost double from 8% of the population in 2006 to 14% in 2031.

       

      The proportion with a Christian religion would decline from 75% to about 65%. The share with no religion would rise from about 17% to 21%.

      best part? I put a picture of a priest with those stats and the picture to come in over top of it? Gay pride parade... oh yah. Diversity rocks. Lol

  15. need ex-c love... just got a letter from the grandparents about leaving church... sigh, the two people who hadn't harassed me yet. I honestly dread personal mail more than bills :(

  18. I know it shouldn't bother me... but everytime I realize another family member has deleted me from facebook,it stings... I know it's about the church thing. Sigh.

      i haven't had that happen... but i bet it hurts upon realizing they've done it

    4. Wings

      Thank you all for your thoughts! I realize that while it hurts, I can choose positive or negative emotions. Focusing on the love, joy and happiness in my life instead (just found out today that I'm going to be a first-time aunt!! :)

  19. Have a good weekend, everyone :)

  20. Watching Craft Wars gives me anxiety! C'mon people, you only have an hour and you can't use hot glue on fabric! (Says this person who hasn't done a craft since kindergarten)

  21. At the parents' for the weekend... they keep popping their head in my room asking if I'm ready for church. Nope, still in pj's. Hopefully this doesn't go down with a fight.
