And I wonder when I will get a list of people I'm supposed to hate for being religious or whatever.

Oh, come on. Are you really that upset that I called you a jerk?

I call my boyfriend a jerk when he leaves the toilet seat up. I call my dog a jerk when he won't make room for me in the bed. Since when is "jerk" such a big time bad word?

I wish I was a people person.

I guess you didn't you a big enough word.

I'm not even sure what this whole "getting personal" bit really means. Is "getting personal" calling someone out for something they took the time to write and post on a message board for everyone to read? Do you actually have to say a "bad" word? I know I definitely "get personal" in some threads, but I'm actually kind of genuinely confused as to the limits here...

No. I can't stand one person. I can't stand the idea of a person calling themselves a radical religious anything, and when asked to discuss it, are not capable of discussing the bible and passages.

I guess that shoe fit better than I thought for a lot of people.

Considering I have plenty of friendly people who are religious on this site and in my personal life, I'm going to assume that it must be something personal in the two of them who keep insisting I'm anti-religion. It isn't the first time it was brought up by either of them. Of course, this time it was Marah, whom I've had good conversations about religion about.

But I guess if I decide I don't like her later, it will be because she is Jewish, and not because I decided I just didn't like her.

And:

Discussing a quote about wisdom and how first you need to be able to understand. How wisdom is lacking around. And the ish is thick around here?

Both seem to be just as rude. One is more direct than the other.

Odd that the backhanded comment is from the "straight talkers".

Maybe since it was just two of them bashing the intelligence of an entire group it is ok, but one person calling another a jerk is over the line.

Today, I can safely say that I have vacuumed in places I have never vacuumed before (in my house).
To be honest, there are days when being a SAHM is kinda tedious. However, when the weather is as perfect as today's is and you get to go to the park for lunch, it's pretty awesome. It's the kind of thing I always wished I could do when I was working and couldn't.

OTOH, grocery shopping ALWAYS sucks.

So if you want to dislike me..I can accept that totally. I don't dislike you because I don't really know you to make that call one way or the other. And I am certainly not going to judge your entire character based on ONE discussion thread. You didn't murder an immediate member of my family for heaven sake!

I don't know maybe it's because I'm so "sheltered" (LOL).. I just rarely hold grudges against people over stuff like that.. I just don't.

I don't dislike you. I was just following along with how the post read. I like you. I like that you are opinionated and are willing to speak your mind and then explain it when people are perplexed. I dont agree completely with you, but that is no reason to not like you.

Oh okay... I understand, Curlyminx. But yeah.. my typing could be better and I definitely need to stop being so long-winded.. seriously because it gets things all mixed up at times. That point I totally concede.

I guess I was just trying to be thorough because I didn't feel I was being understood and things I didn't mean or say were being attributed to me. Oh well.
I love grocery shopping.

I think people feel like "Okay! We get it!" It's the redundancy more than the religion that's wearing.

Are they hammer toes? Or all twisty?

Were they always like that?
