PostSubject: What's on your mind?   Wed Nov 20, 2013 7:03 pm

L.A. was a "visit once to see what all the hype is" type of place. Now that I've been, I don't know if I would visit the city again. California...probably. My impression was millions of people pressed as close to the coast as they could get. Like, there's a strip of green near the water and the rest of the state going west is desert and it's desolate. Like New York...how could so many people live in one small space? haha. It's crazy.

I've been to L.A. and Hollywood, I've seen it. I don't really have any desire to go back.

[Hmm hollywood doesn't and never has impressed me. So.. why would I go except to meet friends there from distant lands who may actually care to look at it? :PThere's so much traffic in that area of southern california I typically avoid going there.
The Getty center museum is near there and that is nice though.

But Toro if you want to come back and give a tour that's fine with me. Razz

Really the only thing that excited me was darth vader and his storm trooper buddy; and also the mini cooper sideways on a pole. Idk what kinda advertisement that is. Apparently mini coopers can drive on the sides of buildings now.


What's on my mind - I just typed "dad" into facebook search bar thing.. not really thinking and it actually brought me to my dad's fb page. Very Happy


Also.. I seriously need to get off the computer and quit procrastinating.
Nah, I wasn't going crazy over the celebs either. Some of them I meet and was just.... Rolling Eyes 

The only celebs I remember meeting were either because they seemed really cool from the time I was around them (Sean Astin for example) or very opposite side of the scale (Kathy Ireland) She didn't seem all that nice, maybe it was a bad day, who knows.

I hated the traffic there, but, meh.... traffic is traffic. I think they should up the driving age to 30 and anyone caught texting/on cell phone.... gets their privileges taken away for 10 years. Just so there would be fewer cars on the roads.... I dislike slow drivers and brake lights. Smash

Got kinda bored with Hollyweird and made a trip outside Cali to go to Vegas for my first trip there..... nothing like the Nevada desert at night.

Fear not, with my love of Cali weather it's not a question of IF you, Ethie, anewday and you Cali folks will meet me, only a question of when.

I love Cali weather so much, when I was younger (in my 20s) it was like my second home. I was just a bit further south from where y'all are now. I was in the El Cajon/Alpine/La Masa/San Diego areas. But those were my usual spots, I hit all up and down the west coast part of Cali. pretty much at least once. Outside Alcatraz, I didn't much care for SF, but it was fascinating to walk through and see the island.

I will be back to Cali..... you have been warned. Razz I think I will likely try to match up with the next time LT goes to Cali. that way I can meet her too. Scare many of you with one trip. Very Happy

So this job...I think I'm really over it by now. Maybe I have bad luck but I always seem to get stuck working for bossy and anal-retentive people who just can't be pleased. Just once I would love to find a position that I like and one where I actually feel like I'm making a difference and doing something I love.

With that whining out of the way I will now resume grooving to Arcade Fire.music notes

Lol. Oh, I was joking. I would never do that. And to be honest, I have zero desire to visit L.A. or any part of California at all. If I had my way, this TCM festival would be in New York or Chicago.

I was in LA once, kind of a "check out the place, see if I want to live here" visit. I felt pretty much the same way Saucy did about it... no thanks. The cross-country drive was a lot more fun Very Happy

I like the sound my sisters phone makes when she gets a text. Mwahahahhaha. Good thing she has unlimited texts and I can use messages on iPod to send one for free. Very Happy

Zomigosh...I feel like I haven't been here for weeks. >.<

Anyways...nothin' too special to report in my life...although I had a cute encounter the last time I went to the laundromat.
They have a little picnic table set-up in the laundromat so there was a comfortable place to sit and chill. Well, while I was sitting there with my laptop, a little girl came over and sat down right across the table from me. She was staring shyly at me for a moment, so I thought I'd say hi. She smiled and said hi back. I went back to my laptop and suddenly heard 'My name's Ivy.'
I looked up and said 'Aw, that's a pretty name!' and went back to my laptop, feeling just a little awkward. Then she smiled shyly and said 'I like your headphones and your shirt. They're green and green's my favourite colour.'
I grinned and replied 'Hey, green's my favourite colour too!' She grinned as well, and then her sister came over and whispered something in her ear. Probably something about talking to strangers, 'cause little Ivy quickly jumped off the seat, but yeah...it made me smile and I felt warm and fuzzy for a while. Very Happy
Now whenever I wear that shirt, I remember little Ivy. Yahoo 


Oh oh...and I made the HUGE mistake of mentioning that I have a crush at work.... Mayhem instantly jumped on me and demanded to know who it was. I'm keeping my mouth shut, which is totally driving her and Pooh Bear nuts. They keep saying they WILL find out, but honest to goodness, I hope NOT. Not only will it make the connection between Cowboy and I really awkward, but the news will spread like wildfire throughout the store. I do NOT want that!!!

Oh young, sweet Squeaky...they already know. They're just teasing you. It should be obvious every time Cowboy looks in your direction.

And for all things holy, you're an American! Stop spelling like a Brit. Many lives were lost so we can gain our freedom from them and their tyrannical rule. I mean, we even poured tea into a harbor and everything!

Daha! Actually, they don't...they mentioned Cowboy, but I said neither yay or nay...I just let it go. giggle

Bwahahaha! That reminds me of Captain America, a guy I work with. He says I'm 'un-American' because I don't do things like watch TV and watch movies and stuff. This must be concrete evidence that I'm not American. Razz

Seriously, though...I just like the spelling. >.>

Daha...that's kinda true...but at the same time, I'd rather just keep it quiet so it's not awkward for us in the future. It'd be a whole different story if maybe I talked to him privately and we came to some sort of understanding, but hearing it through the grapevine...? No thank you!

Well I'm back from the doctor's and I'm left feeling encouraged and frustrated at the same time. How many x-rays have I had on my knee over the years and told there was nothing? Today they found a broken bone fragment and some other minor damage and I finally get to see an orthopedic specialist.

Why is it so important to some people that they be allowed to wear jeans to church? Putting on a nice pair of khakis isn't that hard.

I think that's a big cultural thing. Here, it's acceptable to wear jeans to church, but not shorts, and suits, while nice, aren't really the normal. Whereas, people from Tennessee come and are shocked that most people don't wear suits.

Where I go to church, it's very welcoming and 'come as you are'. I remember a biker's weekend rally we were having to evangelize and a group of bikers went to the wrong church and were kicked out!! That's not Christian at all. I don't get the "not allowed to wear jeans" part. Any pastor who won't let you in because you're not wearing khakis is not one I would follow. Sorry.

I had to assure my last gf, several times, that jeans were allowed at my church, because otherwise I don't think she would've come. That's the attitude I don't get: "Worshipping God isn't worth my while unless I can wear my jeans."

I've never known anyone to be kicked out of a church. To me, I could never see myself going to Sunday morning service in shorts. I see church as something I'm supposed to nicer for, why? that's just how I was raised. Honestly, if I went to a church where they required slacks or whatever (they asked people to leave over it), I wouldn't go back either. My grandparents go to a church where they it is "come as you are", they still go in wearing nicer clothes.

If you went to a church where it was expected, not required, to dress nicer and you liked everything else except the attire norms, then either deal with it or go somewhere else.

Yeah, if you feel the need to do it yourself, that's great! Dress up. Does it make you more religious or closer to God? No. You don't just worship God in church. It's just a building...the people inside is the church. I'm the church. I pray in my room on my face before God and I'm not dressed up when I do it. That's true worship...not singing songs in the morning. And there's nothing in the bible that requires it. My former pastor believed it was just something that divided people and it was wrong to exclude people because they aren't dressed up.

I actually counseled a teen girl who was literally crying to me because she was wondering why Jesus doesn't love and accept her because she was a 'goth' type. She wanted so bad to be active in her church. Do we tell that girl she's not welcome unless she dresses like everyone else? Of course how one dresses should not be important. It shouldn't be the focus. No one should feel excluded. I've worn shorts to church and a hat. Once I preached outside barefoot. As long as you're not causing one to sin, it's fine.

I'm sorry, but to an extent, how one dresses for church is important. Yes, how you dress is not what church is all about, but at the same time I don't think attending church should be taken so lightly that we attend in shorts, t-shirts, and flip-flops. And some girls wear even less than that.

I think the attitude of 'reverence' has been lost to be perfectly frank. I personally do not feel that it is reverent, or respectful to attend church so casually clothed. It's like you just don't care or something. If you're going to a dinner with a prominent figure of society or politics, would you wear jeans, flip-flops, and a t-shirt? No. I believe the majority of people would dig out their slacks, dress shoes, a nice dress shirt, and a tie. ...What is so hard about doing this same thing on Sunday for church?

Let me clarify, I've never been apart of a church who would ask anyone to leave based on how they're dressed (unless it was something extremely inappropriate), nor would I myself ask someone to leave either. But I think it's only right to hold church to a higher standard, don't you think? And that includes how one dresses for it. How one dresses for a rock concert on Saturday night should be vastly different than how one dresses for church on Sunday. I mean, I don't know...you're in church to hear God's Word and worship, not waiting on your beer at Joe's Bar & Grille.
