    This was ironic

    I've ditched my hot chocolate, in favor of Ghirardelli cacao powder mixed with stevia. Finger-warmingly good.

    Impeachment witch hunt.

    Whelp, got to listen to around 20 minutes of uninterrupted testimony on my drive into work. It seemed to be slowly building up to something interesting, but it never got there while I was listening. I wonder if any of what I heard will turn into "damning soundbytes" we'll hear in the news...

    Slow Coup against the Constitution

    Just don't say that 3 times in a row.

    Memeworthy. Here you go.

    Christmas Party

    Learn from some troubles I've seen! - If you're dispensing drinks from big water coolers on tables in the cultural hall, put a dang towel on the floor under it. Not a bunch of paper towelettes from the bathroom, not a washcloth, but at least a dishtowel-sized towel - larger is better. Otherwise, old people will be breaking hips and little kids will fall on their noses. Lemonade and basketball court floors don't mix. - If you let them, the kids will go through the line first and take all the good stuff. A good solution seems to be to call folks to the food line by table. Or have someone manning the tables to tell the kids "Go through the line with your family". - Buffet-style is probably the best option. Make it so people can go down both sides of the food tables. Stacking the tables against the walls means the line moves half as fast. If someone wants to get fancy and make plates and serve them, you'd better have at least 10 people manning the kitchen and 30 servers, or it will take an hour just to get everyone their food. - Have someone assigned to empty garbage cans during the event. Don't let the ward building look like Colorado Marijuana Day at the park.

    I feel very bad about feeling upset over a baby

    I get a little of the stress. I watched my mom wither away and die horribly of multiple sclerosis. Learning that there's a hereditary component to it, that it occasionally skips a generation, filled me with anxiety when thinking about having kids. God bless and hugs.

    Impeachment witch hunt.

    Good analysis, but there is the issue of timing. One side wants the peak of impeachment harm to occur in Sept/Oct/Nov of 2020. The other side either wants it either a) over and done with before the election, or b) pushed until after the election.
  8. Not sure this clarifying question helps, but here goes: Are they going to Bolivia to be Baptist missionaries and spread the word as they understand it, or are they going to Bolivia to teach Bolivians about the "evils of Mormonism" or some such? Because the first isn't really spreading a contrary gospel...

    Learned something today

    Sounds like Elder Gong is a good guy.
  11. D&D can be one of those if you do it right.
  12. Yay! These are coming back, and in more locations than last year, when they raised more than $2 million.
  13. What kind of tears do gators cry? Surely not crocodile tears...
  14. My feelings in this regard are my same feelings in regards to Ouija boards. Ouija boards are squares of cardboard mass produced by the Hasbro company, who brought us occult classics like Monopoly and My Little Pony. From where I'm standing, the only thing that legitimately works about an Ouija board, is that people can create their own emotional states by bringing their own conformation bias to the table. They're about as much a "tool of lies" as professional wrestling, a politician's campaign promise, or a scary movie about demons. For that matter, they're about as much a "tool of lies" as dowsing and divination rods that Joseph Smith used to dink around with early on in his life. My own experience with the Ouija board amounts to mainly on trying to bring my adolescent arm into as much physical contact as possible with my friend's older sister as we worked the little plastic message dealie. Her name was Renee. She had on a white turtleneck. 14 was a fun age. (I did "Light as a feather, stiff as a board, rise body rise" too - and it worked! Still doesn't have anything to do with the supernatural.) Yes, evil exists. But its presence and danger is about exactly as present in D&D/Ouija Boards, as they are in random rocks, or a can of paint, or a hammer, or a box of kleenex.
