Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    Reposting this Weekend social.

    The original had comments which were moved to Open mike, then the comment numbering got confused, and the whole thing was a mess.

    So let’s start again with a clean slate. Apologies to any comment that was lost in the transition.

    [lprent: I’ll write a page on how to do it safely…]
    [r0b: That would be grand!]
    [lprent: Just had to do it for disposing of a farmboy diversion thread on Helen’s post to OpenMike. ]

    French Conservativists riot? over the gay marriage law. Liberty be damned.

    So gay marriage will destroy marriage?

    like? what? preists raping children destroyed the church?

    • McFlock 2.1

      Well it’s one way to spend the weekend, I guess. 🙂
      I’m off to visit friends and maybe hit a booksale, myself.

    • Ad 3.1

      Brings back the urban myths surrounding Muldoon in full Think Big mode proposing a single pipeline from the Great South Basin to Taranaki and then to Auckland. Softening the Great Transition would be great … until we hear this morning of a fishing boat leaking several thousand litres of diesel on to lower reaches of Stewart Island overnight. Still, dreams of Noway are free.

    • Ad 4.1

      Lovely version there. And a great aural palate cleansing after Whaleoil’s Swedish fermented fish versus the Texans this morning.

    If I could have changed I’d have let those reject lines, those rigid lines wash over me.
    And I would arrange them, those wretched lies, like ABC.
    And I would erase them, those rigid lines from underneath.
    And I would erase them. I would erase them all.

    • The Al1en 6.1

      Just put up the final ‘best I can do’ mix, before moving on.
      I had four plays, which was nice, but seeing as I’ve deleted the old version of it and I’m on the free plan, I now won’t be able to, when the site updated later on, see the origin of the listenees.
      You got lucky this time sis, but I’m on to you 😉 😆

    I hope those that are able to get to Nationwide asset sales protests are busy gearing up for a good outing today.

    I however won’t be out there as I feel like death. I have been dealing with a rotten flu for days and am willing like mad for it be gone before Monday……………..when I start my new job!!! It’s all just too exciting!
