Random Questions

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'll take the plunge. I have some random questions that aren't really related to each other but represent things I've been wondering since I started majorly lurking a couple of months ago (before the Snark Board was closed to non-members during the resolution of all the leadership issues).

1. What's the basic deal with the Severns? I've seen different things mentioned in passing while reading about other families. They seem to be a bit more laid-back...but are they? I saw a picture of one of them (Rebecca?) dressed as John Calvin's wife at VF's Reformation event, but I also saw that one son (Nathan, I think) married a woman with a nose ring. What's their whole deal?

2. Phillip v. Peter Bradrick: Discuss. (Peter/Kelly are discussed much more often - I can't find much about Phillip/Katie.)

3. Seppis have posted a lot about others' weddings. Who are they themselves? What's their claim to fame? On the one hand, I saw the mom write a post about submission that wasn't quite as absolute as what others say. On the other hand, some of the Southern/Civil War revisionist books advertised are troubling to me.

Sorry for such a long post - maybe I shouldn't be spending so much time trying to edumacate my dainty feminine brains. :-/

I'm not too good at this, but I *think* the Seppis are the ones that go around trying to talk women out of abortions and saying they will help them if they choose not to abort by doing things like throwing them a baby shower or something weird like that. They also go to a lot of Fundy Royalty type weddings for some reason.

We used to have someone that was a Seppi "fan," but I can't think who it was off the top of my head. I'm sure someone will come along to answer your other questions and tell you what I got wrong ;)

Thanks! That is helpful.

I know I've been here awhile, but who ARE all the members of Doug's interns? I know there's sippy cup, but the rest is just a blur. Does Doug the Tool reconnect with them after they've had their manly romps?

Interns are selected annually. My alter ego applied to be one but was not acknowledged. The application I submitted is currently posted in the LOL doug thread.

Once an intern you always seem to be tied to his royal toolishness, invited back for shenanigans, manly romps, anaconda hunting, and dougie will come to your wedding.

Why do fundie women discredit their own head? I have even noticed the term "headless" being used for women who do not have a male authority figure. Do they actually consider themselves intellectually inferior? Or do they think they are too emotional to handle decision-making? I mean, headless... come on... you have a head - use it.

Are adherents of the ATI/Gothard theology required to put in their wedding vows they will leave the number of children up to God? I'm just curious because this line seems to be uttered almost at all fundie weddings.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
