Jesus Ween ?!?

I asked Mr Skank if he ever heard of Jesus-Ween, and he thought it sounded like some 12 step program for recovering fundies as in "Jesus-Wean" lol!

We had an earlier thread about this, but I'm too lazy to go dig it up.

Language Geek Says, "Hey, morons! The word 'Hallowe'en' comes from 'All Hallows' Evening,' and 'Hallows' means 'things/persons who are holy'--aka saints." It's just a pagan holiday that got a Catholic/Christian remake ALREADY.

Most of the Catholic churches I have attended (especially the Latin Mass variety) discourage traditional halloween and instead host an All Saints Eve party instead. Children dress up as saints and get candy so it is supposed to not make them feel bad for missing out on trick-or-treating. I don't agree that the secular halloween celebration is somehow sinful, but if some parents want to keep their kids away from it, at least the Catholic ones don't have to say they are going out for "Jesus-ween" That's just stupid.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
