    @Multifavs , @Anthony7 , and others, may I ask you personally to please pray for the Lord to give my mother rest in her line of work. For someone who doesn't work there himself I have been around her place of employment long enough to see that managing hazardous waste is definitely a harder business than her superiors representing Harris county seem to think that it is. I just talked with her for along while over the phone because she needed someone to vent her frustrations to and to keep it short it amounts to her working really hard (and the employees under her) but being set up to fail ... because the people above don't care to help in any way since they can keep making their nice upper-middle-class income simply saying from the comfort of their desks to just "handle it", and making her feel stupid and incompetent when I know she's not.

    But she can't just up and leave like I thankfully was able to do with Dr. Pepper when I still lived with her back then. Her retirement benefits will apparently drastically suffer if she leaves now. She sees little choice but to have to stick it out another four years. She has already been working for Harris county for thirteen years, and I barely survived two at Dr. Pepper. (So you can imagine how daunting another four must truly sound.) If Mom has to do that, well, please pray that somehow, someway, it will get better in the meantime. Because she even seriously considered checking in to a mental hospital just to feel some kind of rest from her problems and hopefully learn how to better cope being surrounded by others with problems in a safe environment for so long, as I once did. So, well, I imagine the way she feels right now must be pretty bad. :(

    Speaking of Pink Floyd...

    I like Floyd, but I don't listen to them as much as other prog rock bands. It's not about which band is "better", but about personal taste. My prog list would be as follows:

    1. Yes
    2. Rush
    3. Genesis
    4. Pink Floyd
    5. ELP

    My tastes are varied (jazz, electronic, classical, rock, ska, folk, etc.) but it's a genre that I return to from time to time. Perhaps, in part, because it incorporates multiple genres.

    The Beatles are in a category of their own, as far as I'm concerned. Although I don't listen to them often, when I do I really get into it. Their songwriting was top notch and memorable.

    Online dating is awkward.

    People are awkward.

    I'm awkward.

    Awkward is an awkward word.
    Say that 5 times fast.

    :sick:

    Personal taste definitely comes into it, but you can't deny excellence. The Beatles literally changed the world. But no, how highly one ranks bands is certainly subjective. For me:

    1. The Beatles
    2. Small Faces
    3. The Style Council
    4. The Jimi Hendrix Experience
    5. James - not until very recently did I recognise their awesomeness. What a band.

    You're a magnificent, energy giving young woman who shouldn't EVER resort to online dating. It saddens me slightly to hear that you are.


    OMM: I'm coming back to New York on Friday to celebrate July 4th. It'll be nice to share the company of people who understand what it means to want independence and then take steps towards making it happen. Brexit is no closer to happening folks - I'm afraid the UK government are just NOT people of action.

    Awkward perhaps, but nevertheless beautiful. :angel:


    .... On a less serious note, I could in fact not say that five times fast. Slipped up on the fourth time. ^_^

    My gratitude to everyone who prayed and/or indicated that they would on this post. :) I could tell it has been some really bad days for her lately.

    No argument there. :oldthumbsup:


    No problem, SK. I do hope things turn around for her in the near future, and that God would give her rest or the strength she needs. I'll continue praying for her.

    Eh. I'm skeptical too. But let's use the word try instead of resort. Makes me feel better. lol

    I met a nice, younger couple at church who met online and it piqued my interest.

    I mean, the benefit behind meeting someone over the internet versus, let's say, the produce boy at walmart or the mailman, is that first impressions are normally void of phrases like 'I gotta poop!!' or 'mom! check out this booger!'.
    :dontcare:

    There are a lot of men out there who want a REAL woman. In a narcissistic, social media obsessed world, that's chock full of fake personalities and Snapchat filters, a down to earth, genuine person is what a lot of men are really searching for.

    We're all human. We all have disgusting habits, weird quirks, and tales hidden away in our backstory that make us who we are. We're not androids. Any man who turns his nose up at you for being human should just go out and get himself a mannequin and save himself the trouble.

    You'll make it in the real world, I'm sure of it. Just drop any inhibition you might have, because oftentimes, our biggest weakness is actually our biggest asset.

    Humble is sexy.

    All this Pink Floyd talk reminded me of a certain Pink Floyd fangirl. I sure she would be one of the few to say Pink Floyd is better than The Beatles. :D

    For a muso she actually had a pretty shocking taste in music, at least from what I remember...

    I'd have to sift through some PM's, but I'm quite sure that she said she hated "Ghosts" from The Jam.

    Knowing my luck she'll return now and see me publicly slagging her off lol.

    I remember during the mid 2000's there was a sarcastic saying, "The internet is serious business". It implies that the internet cannot be taken seriously and to treat all activity on it like a joke.

    Fast forward to 2019 and the internet has become a weapon. Call out culture on social media, deepfakes, revenge porn, cyberbullying, addiction to likes, snapchat dysmorphia, YouTube scandals involving abuse and harassment, #MeToo, cyberstalking, fake news...

    The internet has indeed become quite serious business because of all the ways it can ruin lives and impact real life society for the worse.

    I'll take all the crap the Internet brings for the average person to have the opportunity to have a greater voice.

    Just watched Toy Story 4.. of course it doesn't come close to the original.. guess it might be better than Toy Story 2 and 3..

    Thing is.. I miss the first film.. the toys were more sarcastic and mean to each other.. and almost everyone had a selfish motive. In the first film it wasn't about Woody wanting to have Andy's love, so much as him wanting to be at the top of the "toy hierarchy" in the room. When Woody was replaced by Buzz he wasn't happy for Andy having a favorite new toy.. he was filled with jealous rage.. lol...

    The writing was much sharper and biting. Plus the pacing was much slower, which helped you breath in the atmosphere.

    I feel the same way about the first two or three TMNT movies. After that, they all fell off. Big time
