Say It. I Dare You.

Like Tree19307Likes

So, as you all know, we left our church a couple weeks ago. I know we were not exactly the focus of everyone's attention, but in all that time, only one friend has emailed me to ask after us. One person. After 18 years at that church.

I'm so hurt. I always felt like a bit of an outsider, but to have it confirmed so baldly, like I don't even matter at all, is making me feel like dog poop someone scraped off their shoe. I know I'm *not*, but it doesn't make this hurt any less. I'm heartbroken, I miss my family in Florida, and I can feel myself getting depressed. It's really sad when people online, who've never met me in person, care more about my well-being than people I saw twice a week for almost two decades.

Oh, Nyn....that's awful

I don't even know what to say, but I feel terrible for you...
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I'm so sorry Nyn. Don't let it get you down. That church clearly doesn't instill a feeling of "together" or you would have never felt like an outsider, nor would they have just thrown your BIL out like junk.

Find a better church. One where people smile when you come in the door with your family. While I'm not religious, I'm certain that there are churches where people are cared about.

And you guys deserve to be cared about.

screw that crappy church!

Spring, I just remembered you and Mr Spring were in a dream of mine last night. All I remember is Mr B & I were on vacation and were rushing to get in line for something because we were late. Another couple came running up and got in line behind us, and when the woman began talking to her husband, I realized it was you - because I recognized your voice from your Calvin videos! I was all like "No way! Aren't you spring1onu from NC.com? I'm B-wavy!!" Then when I looked at you again, you looked like Jess....except the left side of your hair was flat-ironed, and the right side was wavy/curly. Oh, and Mr Spring looked like the actor boy someone has in their siggy (the one who used to be on Lost). Craaaaaazy
Chilly night. Have my book and a fire. All I need now is a brandy.

My version of the 10 rules netiquette....any errors were done intentionally...yeah...

Below is my interpretation of the 10 rule of netiquette.

1.A good piece of advice is to write unto others and you would have them write unto you.

2. It’s best to not be rude, argumentative or plain old mean and offensive. You can disagree without being mean.

3.See the © within the text? That means that is not yours and ‘Thou shalt not steal copyrighted material’ and you must have the authors permission to post it on other website or forward it in emails.

4.No one wants to be online friends with a bully. SO DO NOT YELL WHILE TALKING TO YOUR BEST FRIEND AND WISHING HER A HAPPY BIRTHDAY. She’s the one mad about getting older and not you.

5.Do not send Spam mail. It’s annoying, a big time waster and no one will want to open your emails. Spam should be fried and served with a side of grits.

6.Thou shalt not lie. It’s best to avoid an untruth and deceive people because your lies will find you out. People will be upset and you’ll take up a new hobby of running while your friends run behind you with pitch forks and shovels.

7.Watch you speeling. It is difficult to understand text speech and your messages will be avoided or people will think you’re not so smart. LOL Ur X0X0X is cute for teenagers texting but not in the real world where people speak and write in complete non-webinese.


8.Know the rules about what are tops or subjects are being discussed or not allowed. It’s like showing up for swim team in a snowsuit. You’ll be sent home because you’re unprepared and one too many times and you will be barred from the pool for life.

9.Keep your conversation clean. XXX is ok if you’re drawing braces but not when children can access the messages and mom and dad have to give that talk to Jr. too early.


10.Make sure Encyclopedia Britannica knows what you know. Research your facts from a reputable source before posting something that is untrue.

I swear this bowl of Lindt balls is procreating, which I'm totally ok with.

And aren't dishwashers just the most awesome invention? I appreciate and love mine every day.

And to all the members of nyn's former church:

OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
Ladies, what are our thoughts on fleece vests? I'm buying work pants from Aeropostale online right now, and happened to see a kind of cute, off-white fleece vest for $12, and I'm thinking about buying it... I feel like it COULD look cute with skinny jeans/boots/bright shirt, but I can't decide...

My friend rocks a pricy Patagonia fleece vest, but she can totally pull off things like that, whereas I'm not so sure I can.
