It's a painting Hugh's brother did as a Christmas present. Hang on and I'll take a picture with my webcam.

Okay, here it is.

To me, it looks like there is a little yellow baby chick with it's mouth open in the background. The gun would be the inside of it's mouth, the orange surrounding it would be the beak, the yellow would be the feathers and one of the flying spaceships would be its eye.

Please tell me im not crazy.

I think it was because when he mentioned the plushes, when I said "I like cute things" I had picked up a penguin and was making it dance. I thought it was adorable but apparently he thinks that was weird.

Also, he just called me crazy because I told him I see faces of clowns in the floral patterns in our curtains and I see chickens in the artwork my boyfriend has of Halo.

No, no. I agree they do look like mushrooms, it just never clicked with me before. I thought they were potatoes for some reason.

My boyfriends friend is over just now, and I totally fail at social interaction. Here are some conversations we have had so far.

Him: "Just out of bed?"
Me: "No...this is just what I look like."

Him: "That's a lot of plushies."
Me: "yeah...I like cute things."
Him: "Oh, okay."

Not to mention I've so far told him my entire knowledge of bees and vitamin B. He obviously didn't care but my mouth wouldn't stop going. Now Hugh has left us alone in the same room and he is just looking at me but I'm typing this and pretending not to notice because I don't want to open my mouth and say something stupid again.

EDIT: Fuck! Now I've just offered to cover him in cream cheese.

Star, I believe it was Neal who talked about spirituality. I kinda sorta, in a odd way, agree with him. I don't believe in spirits, or souls, or any of that nonsense. But I absolutely cannot deny that when I'm working in my garden, or taking a stroll through a beautiful prairie, that I feel...SOMEthing. I understand that it's just a natural connection that people have with nature, but why do so few seem to care, or even notice, said connection? It sounds snooty, but I feel like I see things that other people don't. For me, my love of the natural world is almost a spiritual thing.
You said it sounds like your own private religion, and I would say you are pretty spot on with that.
I basically "worship" nature in a way. Sounds creepy, I know, but that's the gist of it. I can see a similar thing happening with other people and the things they love. Like music, or art, as you mentioned.

I get what you mean GrimReality (Lovin' the hat). The feeling of being connected to nature is an awesome feeling. For some more than others. As you said people feel that same feeling with a variety of different things, because everyone loves different things to different degrees. I just wouldn't go so far as to say it was a spiritual experience though. I just like things, I'm not trying to give them some sort of sentient force. They just are, y'know?

That's just me though, showing my complete at utter close-mindedness :P. Unfortunately I don't seem to feel things as strongly as most people.

A few people have mentioned "spirituality" and its importance, whether or not you are religious. I, however, don't really know what is being implied by said "spirituality". Is it the belief of the soul? Or is it more about the search of some truth within yourself? Or maybe something else? The word has an air of mysticism around it that really turns me off the idea.

The closest I can come to understanding its meaning is maybe through the appreciation art, but even I know that is just a psychological reaction to external stimuli.

Or maybe it is similar to my belief in solidarity and acceptance of our differences, moving towards a better more idealistic future. Even that has an obvious logic to it though.

If anyone can adequately explain "spirituality" to me, I would be very appreciative. Even the dictionary doesn't help:

1.the quality or fact of being spiritual.
2.incorporeal or immaterial nature.
3.predominantly spiritual character as shown in thought, life, etc.; spiritual tendency or tone.
4.Often, spiritualities. property or revenue of the church or of an ecclesiastic in his or her official capacity.

The third one seems most apt to what people have been talking about, but even then it just sounds like people seeking answers to the big questions like "Why are we here, what is my purpose?". Which implies some sort of narrative to our life, which implies there is an author which would be a god-like figure, which I also can't appreciate.

I just don't see how it is compatible with atheism, which someone claimed is possible and I don't feel like looking through these lengthy comments again to find out who. It just sounds like some sort of private religion to me.

I think you will find it is actually spelt "Clender"

You post the most random things...

I'm sure if I played SimCity 2000 I'm sure this would come in handy. Seems like something you should post of Gamefaq's though.

No, it's their policy to reveal things in their entirety.

I dunno what to think of that.

Just finished Suikoden 5. Definitely of much higher quality than 4 was.  Loved every moment of it.

Strange thing happened though, I accidentally missed one of the Stars (Raven), but after the point where you can't recruit any more characters, I got the opportunity to get Raven. It was pretty strange, but thanks to that oddity I managed to get the true ending.

Really? Huh.

I'm pretty sure someone mentioned that it was the British English version of the word..

Who could that have been?

The things I do to be part of the group


Hang on, just gotta wait till Operah's done...  Be there and I'll strip down...

I don't care much for boobs, but if you are done with that box of cadbury's heroes, I'll gladly take them off your hands.
