I'm at my sister's house and watching the Lions. How about you?
Always hard being a Lions fan on Thanksgiving b/c you're supposed to be socializing w/ your family. Luckily I gave up on the Lions a long time ago so it doesn't bother me anymore.

Interesting article on how other countries celebrate Christmas. Not sure if this is the best thread to share some of my thoughts on the origins of a lot of how we do Christmas in the US. One thing the article does say is only 1% of people in Japan are Christian. I think we can all agree if we want to spread the Word, Japan is a sleeping giant.
Trying to find a cartoon movie on Disney+ to watch I haven't seen. I finally decided on Zootopia b/c I hear it's really good but I'm 5 minutes into it & it's another 'follow your dreams', 'traditions are meant to be broken', 'society is oppressive', etc. type movie. I am so tired of these kinds of movies. If it was once in a while it'd be fine, but it's over & over again. & I think these kinds of movies can be damaging b/c they don't teach practicality. Practicality & tradition CAN Be good.

Ugh, not sure I'm being too harsh on it, but I think I'll try to find something different.

Whatever happened to movies that are just fun & the hero wants to do something b/c he wants to & it's fun to him.
I decided on Coco. It has some of those same themes, but there's a lot good. I'll write more later. I'm about 1/3 to 1/2 way done. (I always take a little break while watching a movie, just one of my quirks LOL)

School Boards are trying to find the line that crosses into pornographic in books. Harder then what you would think. I think Boards s/ be fairer for high school levels. But lower grades is where you have to be stricter. They say for lower grades it helps teach against molesting, but I understood in 1st grade if someone touches you & you don't like it, especially in your private parts, or wants you to get naked or something, speak up to someone. That's all you need to know in elementary school. & elementary school students s/ be able to understand that.

I would love to go just one night without having a nightmare, just saying.

Prayed for your peace in times of slumber, Chelsea. I know this can be very hard to deal with, even for days long after we've awakened that nightmares still stick with us. :(

If everyone would please pray for me to get through the next four days of work starting tomorrow morning, with no problems, especially with that loud radio. I've already asked a superior to say something about it a week ago, but it doesn't seem to have been heard very well.

Yes, that's definitely true. I have experienced some trauma in my life, and the nightmares make it seem like I will never truly heal. But I just continue to hope and pray for the best. So, thank you for your prayers. They mean a lot.

That must be unbearable. I don't know how you put up with it. :(

I think I may have misophonia, really. This probably wouldn't bother me nearly so much otherwise.

By the way, @bèlla , a little over one third of the way through Pride and Prejudice, still. Just got past the part where it seems Jane was turned down for someone else by Mr. Bingley. And her response, when prompted by her sister Elizabeth to feel more mistrust for him - or fellow humans as a whole - as a result, it seemed, was so unbelievably amiable you know Jane Bennet is the one literary character who has my heart for life. I couldn't quote it here since the book remains on my desk at work, but the way author Jane Austen words Jane's replies to assure Elizabeth that she feels it is not her place to show or even feel any animosity over the situation, it was excellent writing.

"So sweet you may get diabetes", indeed. ^-^

An excerpt from the actual book, to explain the endearing nature of Jane Bennet that I speak of. ^-^

With a stronger voice she soon added, “I have this comfort immediately, that it has not been more than an error of fancy on my side, and that it has done no harm to anyone but myself.”



“My dear Jane!” exclaimed Elizabeth, “you are too good. Your sweetness and disinterestedness are really angelic; I do not know what to say to you. I feel as if I had never done you justice, or loved you as you deserve.”



Miss Bennet eagerly disclaimed all extraordinary merit, and threw back the praise on her sister’s warm affection.

:love2:

Once again, you guys across the pond think you own the place.

Remember: while the renaissance was in full swing, you guys didn't even have a country yet.

While the rest of us were waking up with a mouthful of grapes every morning, Columbus was being dive-bombed by seagulls trying to find your country.
