    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Everything in the garden growing like weeds (including the actual weeds!), but this is a tomato plant which is way up over my head (I'm 5'3"). And sunflowers which were supposed to be of the 5-7' height...

    I'll second that! I've missed you, HFC...Was wondering where you had disappeared!

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I'm not cut out for rock concerts, I guess. I've been to precious few - all I can even think of is a Genesis concert I went to during my college years, and an Eagles concert I went to with my cousins from England last year. Plus a couple of Neil Diamond concerts in the 80's, which were probably a bit more sedate than the typical "rock" concert, and a Dan Fogelberg, which definitely was! LOL. Most of the concerts I've ever attended have been of the symphonic variety, so I guess I'm a bit of a fuddy-duddy. I was actually tempted to try for tickets to a Queen/Adam Lambert concert a couple of years ago, but the tickets flew out of the box office before I could even get through. But, in reality, after the Eagles concert I'm not sure I really would appreciate that sort of thing anyway. I'm not comfortable in either crowds or with loud noise, and concerts seem comprised of little else. No matter how much I might like the music, it sounds better to me safely at home, and even though there is something to be said about the "live" experience, I find that seeing it more or less wholly via the jumbotron doesn't really make me feel any closer than seeing it on a TV screen.
  4. Mine did that, but returned after puberty.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I'm even of the age where I should have grown up with Led Zeppelin, but had to refresh my memory as well. I grew up mostly exposed to classical and Polish folk music with a smattering of oldies of the rat pack era. I was the dweeb who actually watched the Lawrence Welk show on purpose! LOL I do remember thinking Robert Plant was quite attractive when he showed up on MTV with a different band in the early 80's (by which time I had finished college and expanded my horizons if only slightly), but that was the first I'd really heard of him, and while he was still young in the major scheme of things, he was already a little long in the tooth as far as the bulk of what was on MTV. Looking at all these old (and newer) photos of him, I was trying to figure out how it was that his hair worked so well for him while Cade's looks ridiculous. I guess it just boils down to everything about Cade from the inside out coming across as artificial.
  6. Given that they were probably windfalls, or something else that she didn't have to pay for, it's entirely possible that most of the apples were, in fact, bruised and buggy. Plus, since she probably enlisted the kids to do the bulk of the work, poor knife skills probably decimated them even further.

    I was thinking a similar thing. He somehow looks reasonably OK in closeups and head shots, but once the camera backs away, there is something about his looks that doesn't work right. It might be partially the way the hair overpowers everything else, but aside from that, even, it makes me think of when I try to paint a portrait. I'm really good with portraits in pencil, and even colored pencil, but it all seems to go awry when I try to paint them. Somehow, even though the individual features appear well-handled when viewed close up, once you step away the whole thing takes on the appearance of a slightly ghoulish, staring death-mask. That's the impression his face gives me.

    The Lonely Js Club: Jana, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason and James

    I never would have noticed, but it sure does look like it. Just like trying to watch "The Birdcage" on network TV. LOL

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    It's probably a likely scenario, but my gut tells me that they will hold off even if it's mostly subconsciously...I'm sure they have at least a working knowledge of when the most fertile times of her cycle would be, and now that they have firsthand knowledge of the pain which comes from the sort of loss they went through, they may just instinctively shy away from another pregnancy right away. While I recognize that even an early miscarriage such as Lauren had can be every bit as painful under some circumstances, much of that depends on how much effort went into the conception. A first-time miscarriage after a conception within the first two or three months of marriage is totally different - even if the pregnancy was a planned and joyous thing - than a miscarriage a long period of trying, or after multiple lost pregnancies. And losing a baby at 20 months, fully-formed yet non-viable, has simply got to be rougher, no matter what, than losing a barely formed jellybean of a fetus which might still easily be overlooked as a heavy period unless one was making a habitual use of pee-sticks. Point being that as much as she might think that she and Joy suffered an equal loss, Lauren has no clue. Which is why, I think, she could move right on to another try where Joy might need more time. As I say, it might be more subconscious than otherwise, but I just feel that Joy and Austin will be giving it a little bit more time.

    I'm not even religious, and everything you said here makes sense to me. There's only so much money anyone could ever need, and once you get into the millions, any way you slice it more millions just seem as though they could be spread around to those who need some help.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Given that image, the only thing I could think of which those clothes might be useful for is a barf bag.
  12. I thought it was common practice. I do it as well, though I know that mostly Italian food purists frown on it. To me, it just makes it easier to eat when the spaghetti is more limited on how big a ball it can twine itself into on your fork. But I'm Polish, not Italian, so what do I know?

    I think it's some sort of weird filter they are using. Everything just seems unnaturally crisp.
  14. It's a strange case of semantics, really, when their beliefs state that wearing the clothing that pertaineth to the opposite sex is an abomination, so basically anything which involves each leg being separately clad is forbidden as visible attire, yet they still wear those shorts or leggings under their skirts and dresses, which may prove immodest due to their tendency to allow the legs to show. I wear pants most of the time. Palazzo-type (or what I refer to as my "floopy pants) are my favorites as they are so comfortable and seem to be the most flattering to my body type. I do enjoy wearing dresses as well, though, including casual dresses, as I also find the airy, swishy feel comfortable. When we were stationed in Hawaii, I dressed pretty much exclusively in the long, Hawaiian-print dresses so ubiquitous there. They were just so easy to throw over in the morning, and felt cool despite being mostly full-length. Not the frilly muumuu sort of confections, but just a plain sort of sheath. I still have them all, but can never quite bring myself to wear them out and about in Connecticut.
