Do you like my cookies? They're made just for you

I just want to say how much I HATE cookie disclaimers. Having a floating bar on a website saying something along the lines of "This website uses cookies. You can read our cookie policy here. ACCEPT" annoys me. Mostly because I don't usually have to actually click "accept" before they start feeding me cookies. I also dislike that so many websites only let me click accept, and not deny.

And don't get me started on Facebook's: "To help personalize content, tailor and measure ads, and provide a safer experience, we use cookies. By clicking or navigating the site, you agree to allow our collection of information on and off Facebook through cookies. Learn more, including about available controls: Cookies Policy." YMMV, but to me, clicking on Cookies policy link would be classified as navigating the site.

Now, I may have spent some time testing that out, and apparently clicking and navigating through FB's policy does not get you cookies. I feel deceived, I was excepting them to start delivering me Oreos any minute now!

But noooooo, they aren't sending me edible cookies to eat (which might be a good thing). So my attitude has warped into something like this*:

      I find it strange having a name theme. I'm used to John and Jane happen to start with the same letter and since they stopped at two they technically had a "theme" but only because those were the names they liked. It wasn't some "we have to come up with a name we like that fits the theme." Maybe it's just me but I find it weird that so many second gen Kellers have an intentional theme. (Outside of bible names or something. Eta so I guess I'm used to "bible names" being a theme.  But starting with the same letter is weird to me)

      I think the whole idea of a “name theme” is kind of foreign to me. The biggest family I know personally have 3 kids. More than 3 is really uncommon here. Parents will usually gravitate towards somewhat similar types of names (in terms of social background connotations, modern vs. traditional, similar “vibe”), but I’ve never heard of anyone with a naming theme outside of FJ.

      Honestly, they could actually be working and still grifting for extra cash. We obviously can’t expect honesty or true transparency from them!

      I would almost be proud of them if they were pulling this off.

      We have such an obscure naming theme that I’m not sure if my partner even noticed I did it! The obvious one is that all of us have names that are technically biblical, but so common that people don’t automatically associate it. The other 2 things with my kids nobody has ever picked up on.

      I’m never going to remember the Waller newest is Desiree and not Dorothy.  Dorothy just seems to go with the other names and Desiree seems like a stretch to make work.   Sometimes I wonder if fundies find a name first and then stretch the meaning to make it work for their purpose.
