JOHN LINNELL YOUR CUTENESS IT IS KILLING ME
Checked out my local Unitarian Universalist congregation today. It was awesome. The “sermon” was on Unitarian Universalist principles in the Constitution. And in two weeks, it will be “Feminism today”. Really excited about this. My husband could see the difference in my mood after attending the UU meeting(happy and downright bubbly) as opposed to whenever I’ve come home from LDS church meetings(depressed and pissed off). The fact that they had donuts has sold him on it. My daughter enjoyed her class. My son still doesn’t like going into nursery(I think he’s like me and has social anxiety…he doesn’t really like new situations or new people until he has been around them for awhile).
Their pianist was very talented. VERY. And their choir was great. I wanted to cry the whole time because I felt so at home and like I belonged which is something I’ve never felt in the LDS church. We’ll definitely be going back.
You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is “never get involved in a land war in Asia” - but only slightly less well-known is this: “Never go against a Sicilian when pants are on the line”!
Listening to Eddie South on Spotify. I remember reading something on Andrew Bird years ago about South being an influence and I put one of his albums on my Amazon wishlist and then took it off when it went out of print and became completely unavailable. Listening now, oooooh boy, I can REALLY hear the influence in Mr. Bird’s violin playing. And I mean REALLY. Excellent.
