I would bet that the neo-pagans would be incredibly boring yet amusing at the same time. That's been my (limited) experience.
You're right. Except the real alchemy begins with me, not ends in.

2 Kings 2:23-24

And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

I would not be able to order that stuff online.

A couple of years back, my parents ordered a laptop for my birthday because my desktop randomly decided to stop accepting the school's internet access. I was terrified about it breaking and I was a total annoyance to the UPS man coming in. "Watch it, watch it, hey! Don't put it down on the floor! Give it to me now!"

I just can't order electronics online, big or small. I know they go a long way just to get to the store, but it screws with my psyche for some weird reason.

But enjoy your TV. ;D

Same here.  I hope it doesn't say anything ill about my character, but I find it enjoyable when the Lord smites folks.  They always deserve it (I can say this without judging since it is apparent they deserved it or the Lord would not have done it) and it gives a good warning to keep me in line.  Anger God and he might feed you to bears. 

And I did have Der Struwwelpeter read to me as a child...

What version of the Bible is this that the text of this passage speaks of little children?

It shocks me at the frequency (and short life span) of these celebrity marriages.......they remind me of pre-teen relationships...maybe because they're of the same emotional maturity....

Shut up! I didn't know it would happen that quickly.

Just read a statement from him -- sounds like she is calling it quits although he wants to keep trying. Who knows what happened? You couldn't pay me to be a celebrity. And if you are, don't MARRY another one, for heaven's sake.

Yeah but that guy is a total pallyhead (Just for you PtA). I knew it wasn't going to last because of him.

Besides she is in love with me anyway.

Thank you. Yes, it was a surprise. I hadn't received any negative reviews or anything like that.

I am going to file for unemployment. I hope it's accepted.

Did your manager tell you the reason for your termination? For instance, did he specifically call it a layoff?

I worked for an insurance company. I had gotten some good reports pretty recently, I even won a tote bag.  :) They didn't give my any big warning signs. I'm thinking it may be budget cuts or maybe just the economy's still slow.

The safety net are the nets of the fishermen Christ called out. Don't be afraid to let yourself fall completely into their catch.

I'm a contract worker for two different places right now, and I would sweat bullets all the time about being cut off within seconds. And then I hear about people with secure jobs being let go for any and every reason. No one is safe. I look for more contract work when I  have a few free hours. It's becoming crazy.

I'm looking for jobs at the moment, and the number of temp/contract jobs out there are staggering. Sorry but I need a little more foundation than that.

I'm so winning the Powerball this Wednesday.

Actually, ladies and gentlemen, Kim K's extravagant wedding was a slightly larger than life version of what is happening all across the country: we are WEDDING obsessed. Not marriage obsessed, but wedding obsessed. We are obsessed with the opportunity to be, the experience of, and the reminiscing about being a bride and all that it entails. From the chance to take styled staged engagement photos with matching outfits down to the getting to "splurge" on $5,000 designer gowns and red-soled Louboutins the average girl would never purchase, the wedding celebration has become in our culture an occasion for grown women to treat themselves like a celebrity for a day, the allure of which is so compelling, even REAL celebrities can't resist it!
