If there is a lack of recipients, I will fulfill my duty as a noob to replenish your havens as they may be. I'll shut you down if necessary. @Peterbound, we may not agree on certain matters but I have always thought you were one of the core persons of this forum, and I value your opinion.
A fine white wine, and just feeling good in general can get you a long way. Today is awesome and I'm not going to let anyone ruin it!!!11 I also scavenged clothes to donate while being at a birthday party today. I may be a vulture but it's for a good cause...
Heyo Welcome 7-KG Blah... work for the co-op until 11.30 pm. Administration and budget. Don't ask me if it's worth it right now. But digging around the house is under way so there's proof I'm not being useless Now watching The Expanse! Oh and I received the geeky stuff that I ordered. Now in possession of an Ice letter opener. I open letters in one swift blow. Being merciful. The infinity scarves were awesome. Marvel and Starwars! Woop
Not a case of me being an ass but this conversation reminded me for several reasons about an occasion when I worked at a gas station many years ago. Guy paid for something, seemed to have trouble making small talk but wanting to, on his way out he backed away smiling and said "I suppose it's time to say congratulations? " I had no idea what he meant. "Ehh? Umm... " I'm thinking do we know eachother and I am supposed to remember something? I looked around awkwardly for a second and saw some "mother's day" signs we had put up. It was mother's day. Oh no. Clue: I am not a mother and I wasn't pregnant. He was smiling and doing thumbs up. I mustered a sour thanks as he walked out. Maybe that was a bit dickish of me but I didn't feel like having that conversation with random customer person. And didn't feel like making him even more awkward about talking to cashiers lol
I don't know if it's confirmed but possibly all hostages are out according to this: http://live.reuters.com/Event/World_News/206515698 http://www.bbc.com/news/live/world-africa-34815762 Here's to hoping that is correct.
Hello spam. Just stopping by to say hi, I'm not feeling very chatty right now. I can't muster a good feeling for anything. I'm going into my social safe bunker with a bunch of movies to cheer me up. Wake me up in April if I haven't checked in before lol
I wonder if FNR, Hayyoth and others who believe like them actually live in "multicultural" societies? Do you know what you are talking about, I mean? And I don't mean the US in general, I mean a local area that has a big population from various cultural backgrounds. I do live in such a society, and I have friends from various places of the world living here, many of who grew up here, and family with African arabic background on one side (second generation, I assume you'd call it). This what I grew up with and I would never want to change or trade it. I love our society, and I want to keep it, multicultural and diverse. The good old days with everyone being white and following the same traditions that some speak of has never existed for me, my good old days were this. I'm not young either, so this is not something that happened in the last 25 years or so. People fleeing wars, have moved and settled here since WWII. Workers and students have immigrated since the 60's. Before the 1950's we were a poor country, and the reason we were not even poorer was that a big portion of our population had emigrated to the US, fleeing starvation. It works both ways, funny isn't it? I suppose there's a small window of time that people who like to feel sentimental can point at which would be the 50's. Those were perhaps the good old days? Not much of emigration or immigration (apart from WWII survivors). I would never trade living here now for living here in the 50's though, personally. I don't see any appeal at all. My country is absolutely affected by the war going on, and I am very aware that there will be a few members of Isis coming here in the influx of refugees, but I would never dream of supporting an apartheid society where hundreds of thousands of people living here are declared not full citizens on some random criteria. Either we are a democracy, or we are not.
Thank you, Helena and Sniffer. I hope you slept well too! Malik, how is your face today lol? Bucky, I very much agree. This red colour, whyyyy? It was fine before, now it looks like a Christmas special. It clashes wildly with the background. Eyehurt.
