Understood. 

 

 

 

That's one thing I just don't get, religions and their philosophies, but I respect.

If she runs the church, wouldn't her 10% be going to...herself?

I always feel bad for my boss who doesn't look forward to the weekend because his kids have a like millions of activities he helps them out with. It all seems daunting to him as it does me hearing about it. Then he asks me what I am doing and I am like, "meh, I don't know some reading, take a stroll, hang at the cafe." I kind of feel like a dick.

No it goes to God.

Maybe you can find one at that cafe.

And with that comment, you have just shown yourself to be an unbeliever, Gibonius. As a woman of God, her money *is* the Lord's money. (Wait no, then she should be giving 100% to God. Now I am cornfused.)

What about the people who are so transfixxed by the little faux newsfeed in the elevator that they have to read the whole screen before getting out? I'm not even talking about the dodos who break-off midview once they realize it's their floor and dash out as the doors are closing (always making open/close again) - I'm talking about the numbnuts who KNOW the car has stopped on their floor but can't drag themselves away from the fascinating story about J-Lo or how people who have good work/non-work balalnce lead happier lives - often they'll start to leave (which keeps the doors open) but do a kind of drawn out departure w/ their head leaing farther and farther back so that they'll be sure to learn all there is to learn about the latest cocktail craze...

So mr g, teacher, Thomas, canukers, nobd, etc sf parents, what's it like for your children to have such hip parents? Do they dress like you? Nitpick about dimples like you? Are knowledgeable about everything like you?

Oh, don't worry about that. He may not look forward to it but he wouldn't rather be anywhere else.

It's an ordeal for the little lady. Sometimes we both wear sweater vests (me over an OCBD, her over a long-sleeved t-shirt or polo), or perhaps corduroy trousers. One day we did match and I didn't want to do that to her again. She's pretty compliant with what I choose but favors pink. I'm slowly coming to terms with pink myself, but it will be a very cold day in Texas before I don a hot pink puffy jacket.

Yeah well when you have a daughter, everything magically turns pink. Shoes, clothing, bedding, the pets, everything.

And don't get me started on Princess culture. Her favorite dress is a cotton dress with a Disney Princess motif. Her bedding is Disney Princess. I blame her mom and her school.

We have a thread for this in CE that I and others totally derailed and turned into a comedy fest. Seek it out, it has some good work.

hey didn't you know, that the classic character Tinkerbell- thanks to disney- not only was born from the laugh of Wendy when she was a baby, not only did she interact with other humans before Peter Pan's adventure, not only was she in the fairy world a member of the lower caste, but now she also has a long lost twin sister that lives in the fucking cold?

Somehow I dodged that bullet. Mine hates princesses and pink. Hates Justin Bieber too.
