Exactly! But I think parking for the events is free, so you would just tell them you are there for the Christmas party. Though it has been a few years since I've done an event.

So good morning babnanas!!! I'm here in the hopes of finding a happier place than FB this morning. Ugh. Time to thin the herd, I think.

I would like instead to focus on the nor'easter that's coming tonight and tomorrow. U-G-H...!! Not a lot of snow (last I saw they said 2-4" here) but lots of wind and, after the temps rise, lots of rain. Blech. Good news is, it's supposed to be almost 60* by early next week (which won't last, but then again neither will the snow ).

And, when it's all said and done, I'm going to FL in 11 days.

Morning all! In just a few days I get to do the passholder preview of Fantasyland. I'm very excited.

Maybe they don't "have a backbone" but these people do have a heart. And common sense. While I agree that events like these are big revenue generators, I don't think it would've been true in this case. Local supporters are too busy piecing their lives back together. And as others posted here, what a slap in the face to have FREE food and water being handed out when there are people standing in lines at the back of Red Cross vans. Running generators when people's gas is currently being rationed.

The bright spot is that some of the runners that came into the city for the race (from all over the world) stayed and helped with the clean-up efforts.

Her heart rate is about 100 beats per minute. It should be about 70-80. She's in isolation and on a wide spectrum antibiotic. I talked to her husband this afternoon. She was on oxygen and is now off of it. All she wants to do is sleep. I didn't ask to many details because he's so upset. From what I gathered she fell and hit her head. They did MRI's and CAT scans, nothing wrong with her head. Please, if you think of it, pray for her. This is also the friends who lost 2 alpacas on Thursday/Friday and then had a new one born the same time.

While I'm proud of my political and religious beliefs, I don't regularly post them on FB or really anywhere else on the web because it's like throwing yourself into a meat grinder with a stuck ON button. I will say that I have no complaints about the results because I didn't/couldn't vote (long story and an issue that is in the process of being remedied) but I am truly shocked and disgusted by how some of my so-called friends are presenting themselves in light of this election. It scares me into thinking - is this who they truly are?! Granted, when you're passionate about something, you run the risk of being blinded a bit, but some of these people are simply ugly, arrogant and/or ignorant. I have many friends whose views are 180 degrees different from mine. Some of them on this very thread! However EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of them posted in a respectful and proud manner and to that I say, "Thank you for being a friend!" (NOGoldenGirls)

One acquaintance of mine basically posted, "Good (expletive) job Americans. You're all brainwashed sheep. I knew this would happen but I had to hope."



I don't usually take the bait but I was soooo tempted.

Mind you, this person lives here, in America. But is apparently the only non-brainwashed sheep. My Friends List is going to be at least one person shorter by the end of the day. Disagreement and healthy argument is acceptable. Blatant disrespect is not.

I trust you nanners. I like you nanners. A whole bunch. I respect that some of you would've voted differently than I would and for reasons you whole-heartedly believe in. And GOOD FOR YOU. Because if we don't have faith in the people we're voting for, whether they make it in or not, where are we? If we don't have opposing views and respectfully challenge each other, who are we?

Well, I guess THEN we would be a country of brainwashed sheep.

::ahem::

::stepsoffsoapbox::

Sorry all. That went on longer than I anticipated. If it bothers anyone here or you feel it ruins the vibe of our thread I am more than happy to remove it. I know we all avoid some of the other Community threads for just this reason. I hope I haven't offended anyone.

Wow, what a 'lovely' person. That is awful. I've read some pretty ugly insults on fb too. No need of it. Maine passed same sex marriage. You don't even want to know some of the nasty comments. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could give their opinions in a respectful manner?

The commute could be pretty bad around here. Maybe school will be delayed.....or maybe it won't be as bad as they say.

11 days!!!
