Thor Made a Fwend!




Thor made a friend this week. I've been kitten sitting, she's a wee tiny scrap of a thing. Her mom is munchkin, not sure what dad is, but she wasn't a full price kitty. The first day or so was a bit hairy, she's small but has no fear! She was telling those big cats what side their bread was buttered on! By the end of this week she & Thor have been ripping & roaring. They are quite the partners in crime.

I give you: Mistress Rowena Longbottom (Rowena, I added all the fun bits)

And Thor's "I'm not guilty" face after they midnight trashed my kitchen table & stepped on Honey's macaroons  :laughing-rofl:

I was down to kidnap her until the last few acts of random destruction. He's taught her very well ? I told my daughter to come get her this weekend. I'll have plenty of visitation!

      I agree - I think at this point she needs cult deprogramming, not just a hard shake or good therapy. She is in deep, deep denial and cognitive dissonance. Her entire sense of self is wrapped up in her beliefs in this cult that she has been raised in since birth. And yes, other people including some of her own siblings have gotten out. Good for them! Everyone is different, processes things differently, handles things differently. I have family members who have been sent into complete tailspins of deep depression due to life events that have not done the same to me. It doesn’t mean I’m better than them, it’s just that we’re wired differently and have different experiences in our lives. If I wouldn’t tell someone who is clinically depressed to just cheer up or do some yoga to feel better, I certainly wouldn’t take that approach to someone who has been mentally, emotionally and spiritually abused their entire life either.

      What’s really sad is that the tragedy of Anna’s extremely successful and entrenched cult programming makes it so hard for her to see the real damage and pain she’s exposing herself and her children to. That she doesn’t realize it doesn’t need to be this way, even when the truth and offers of help are screaming and jumping up and down in front of her face. I don’t need to choose whether to empathize with Anna OR her children. They’re all victims, and even though she is an adult who is responsible for her children’s lives, she’s still a victim of cult programming that has given her a narrow and fucked up set of options and put blinders on her to all others. Nobody wins here, we don’t need to pick a bad guy, beyond the entire fucked up system she exists inside of.

      What I truly hope for is some glimmer of realization from her, that she needs to get out and find a new world. And that her wealthy sister can then pay for the best cult deprogramming that money can buy, and therapy for all of her kids.

      Recognizing the reality of Anna’s situation and the uphill climb it is for her to wake up and get out doesn’t preclude being sad and angry that it hasn’t been an easier road to this for her, for her children’s sake. It’s not “OK” that Anna has made the choices that she has, the outcomes have not been good to say the least. But it’s “understandable” for lack of a better word given her background, and I think needs to be taken into account when discussing why she has or has not made different and better choices up til now. If you don’t agree and feel no empathy for Anna at all and feel she should be in complete, mentally healthy control of her choices the moment she reached some point in her life, as though reaching adulthood or having children washes away a lifetime of abuse and brainwashing (if only) then that’s your prerogative. But I don’t agree. The consequences of her actions are what they are though, and maybe one day she’ll start to come to terms with them and start making it right. That’s my hope for her and her kids.

      Having grown up in Europe, having had a decent (public school) education, and having been exposed to maybe just 20% of the cultish programming that Anna must have had, I must say my heart really really goes out to her.

      When the (cultish fundie) world as I had known it started to crumble and cognitive dissonance got stronger and stronger and just couldn*t be ignored any longer, I was young (early 20s), single and without any kids. I had an education and I knew I could use it to support myself. And still I was scared sh*tless, it felt like jumping out of an airplane without any parachute and I was really convinced that I would end up smashed and splattered on the ground.

      When you grow up in those closed belief systems, there simply isn't any exit, not even an emergency exit. Getting out is inconceivable. It is the unthinkable. And in order to try and get out you must be sooooo desperate, having simply no other option left, that you're left thinking "might as well give it a try..."

      For me, it nearly killed me, there were countless instants when I thought about jumping off some bridge, because I was so desperate, alone and didn't realize that there were any alternatives worth living. And the circumstances I found myself in were cozy compared to what Anna finds herself in right now, having 7 children, no education that is worth mentioning and having been far more thoroughly brainwashed than I had been at the time.

      Whoever thinks that you just get up and leave 'the system' - let me tell you it's not that simple and that easy. It's not driven by logic. It's as if the world as you have known it has stopped and falls apart. And your whole sense of self (if you had any to begin with, because as a helpmeet you don't have any desires and wishes of your own) falls apart as well. It is frightening, and you simply don't know whether you will come through and see the light at the end of the tunnel.

      At the same time you don't dare to seek help. Those outside the system? You don't trust them (yet). And those in the system? They will tell you that it's all your own fault. It is an incredible lonely place to find yourself in and I'm pretty sure that Anna's non-reactions in court are some sort of dissociation, because she is so focused on holding it all together, somehow, even though she knows deep inside that she won't succeed in doing so.

      My guess is: She will need time  - a lot of time - to distance herself from Josh. And to start finding her own sense of self, that is not dependent on being someone's helpmeet and joyfully available wife, but that is built on her own identity.  It won't happen suddenly and over night, it will take time and lots of professional help, because getting in touch with yourself is scary as hell when you've grown up being told that you mustn't have desires of you own. But be an empty vessel for Jesus and his love. When I started connecting with myself and my innermost being it gave me serious panic attacks for years (because I learnt from early on that this would result in my damnation and destruction) - it was like some sort of emotional autoimmuneresponse.

      So I cannot blame Anna for trying to hold it together somehow, as well as she knows to. I too would love to see her leaving the cult, and building her own life. But I also know that this comes at a huge cost and that it's a tightrope walk, while trying to provide stability for her 7 children who will most likely grow up with their father being in prison for years to come. She simply cannot afford to fall apart right now, and stepping out of the cult overnight would most likely result in some sort of emotional explosion and blow up.
      It's such a mess and there simply is no easy way out.

      Edwin Morton and Francesca Tuggle are officially engaged, per Martha’s ig story. I’m not convinced they were engaged before, I think that was just a photoshoot they had

      I was surprised by that. Unbelievably weird to pose for fake engagement photos with the boyfriend you're not actually engaged to, imo.

      Is Boob running, or is he pretending to run in order to fundraise in order to pay for the greasy ones defense? 

      I agree that Smuggar is full of hate and anger against the life that he was to live without exeption, and i can even see his offending based on that. What better way to undo your parents ideas by 'spoiling' the good girls of the family for their future husbands. After all, in their circles parents are judged on how isolated, uninformed, and virginal their children are at the point of marriage. Never mind that they can't have real jobs, and in the case of the girls will be fucked from one pregnancy to the next. And to be honest, do children - even babies - even matter in this mindset, they don't have children because they want them or love them, they have children because that is what happens if you have intercourse, and women can't say no, and men are beastly beings who can't help themselves and thus children are born. You can force couples to go from one pregnancy to the next without respite, but you can't force them to love these children. 

      the whole family is fucked beyond believe, but if one or some of the guys have certain fetishes then that will lead to abuse. And generally it is always the weakest, the designated scape goat that will get abused.

      Perosnally I hope they send him somewhere where Anna would have to put the kids on a plane to visit.  I hate the thought of their childhoods being built around weekend visits to prison.

      Agreed.  And I hope it will be a very away prison.  And that the Duggar planes are too small, or it becomes to expensive to fly out there often.

      The defense is trying everything and anything to put doubt in the jurors' minds.

      Well, as they say, if you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit. The technology aspect offers an opportunity to put a lot of mud in the water. Linux, Tor, partitions, etc. are outside most people's experience. If you don't have a case, you can only hope that something will click with a juror or two.

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.
