Re: BOM Play in SLC this Summer

I LOVED it. I find a lot of musicals boring, but this one was personal and interesting. I am a big fan of low brow humor and Book of Mormon delivers that in spades, while also being thoughtful. I consider attending it to be one of my post-transition milestones. There were a lot of exmos there in cos...

Impossible?!

I tried the Impossible Burger at The Cheesecake Factory last night. I enjoyed it. The patty was good enough to be part of a good burger. It wasn't the best burger patty ever, but if I hadn't known I don't think I would have suspected it was meatless. I think I will start eating more of them. They ar...

Re: Alternate Family Night Lessons

This is great Slavereeno! I've got a bunch of topic ideas bouncing around now, but they all need fleshing out. - How the solar system works; swing around a tennis ball on a string to show gravity, let it go to show what would happen if the sun disappeared; get a globe and a light bulb to show the da...

Re: Ward Council is Closed (Minded)

Good job speaking up. Those meetings are hard. I worry about the idea of teaching the youth to learn from the spirit, not outside sources. The closest to crazy I've ever been was caused by me trying to follow the spirit in all things. I was clinging to feelings about what can of soup to buy and rand...

Re: New and Confused (so long its not true, one little woman...)

I have half of me that is terrified to step out because it's been the most constant thing in my life, and the other half of me that is ready to be heard and say out loud that so much of this is pure invented garbage that doesn't really do anything. Its really conflicting and I have DW who is so con...

Re: New and Confused (so long its not true, one little woman...)

Welcome Boozer! The first thing I thought of was Carlos Boozer, good name. Too bad the Jazz are getting the Rockets in the first round of the playoffs. Hopefully the Jazz can get past them. I'm glad you found NOM, it has been a haven of sanity for me over the past few years dealing with the feelings...

Re: Did not watch one second of conference. Did not miss it.

DW had it on some, so I got to hear a couple of the talks demeaning those who stop believing. Those made me mad. There were a couple really decent talks too, but certainly not worth the price of admission. I would be a million miles away if it didn't cost so much. I'm glad you have been able to dist...

Re: Hook, line and creamer

By the way did anyone see Ned Flanders singing in the Tab Cats? When did they start allowing mustaches? Not sure if it was the same guy, but me and my kids kept looking for the guy who looked like he was wearing the disguise glasses; big glasses, bushy mustache. I think he may get lasik, shave, and...

Re: Mr. and Mrs. Græy's Stuff

HR departments like to have something to tie the counter offer to, like a competing offer. You might consider getting your current job involved if you are comfortable with that and it is not taboo in your work. Tell your boss that you have received an offer for more money at another company and are ...

Re: Baptized DS

i baptized and confirmed my youngest as a nonbeliever. It was OK. Youngest is now a nonbeliever as well. That's awesome, nice to know it can work out. The day was fine, it was just a little hard to hear DS be taught things I disagree with and just smile and nod; but that's every Sunday... I tried t...

Baptized DS

Well, the baptism is complete. I baptized, someone else confirmed as requested by DS because he wanted to include everyone. It was an interesting day. Both sides of the family filled up the primary room in support of my son, it's nice for him to know that so many people love him. We made a bit of a ...

Thanks all! It was nice. I'm going for day 2 today, then I will run out of shirts. It's nice. RR, that poem is too true. You might be able to shake the indoctrination, but garments still make real and negative impacts in our lives. Ugh. But I still smile when I think about ditching the g's for a cou...

Garment-Free Day

Today, I am garment-free. I pulled the trigger on buying some comfy looking undershirts that look enough like garments that I don't worry I will be outed all day. Mr. Davis undershirts. Super comfy. Those along with my Saxx underwear and I am comfortable and disonance-free. And no tears from DW! She...

Re: Ward Council is Closed (Minded)

"My testimony is like a rock, Chuck! Thanks for asking!" - Maybe that's what that one person wanted to hear you say. "How is your testimony?" is such a bad question. It is beyond personal, if the answer is anything other than "great!" then you can't really answer because it is really a yes or no que...

Sorry, more on this.

Re: Pokemon + BYU + hominid evolution

Wow! Thanks for sharing Oliblish. I may have to take my kids down to BYU tomorrow. I'm surprised BYU is hosting an exhibit highlighting hominid evolution. I would expect an exhibit with less direct evidence that humans evolved from a common ancestor with great apes, as that makes you think hard abou...
