I like that term, "Fathers up".   :lol:

Well, you know, it actually MEANS something. Being a father is some srs bsns. As you know.

Sure.  It means little things, like paying the bills and changing shitty diapers, to the big thing, ie, GIVING A FUCK.

My opinion of them is skewed by receiving a letter on one's letterhead in response to a member's child support order.  Attempted to, in lawyer-speak, demand we "suspend" withholding while the case was appealed and reviewed.  Um....no.  That ain't how it works.

"Dad" quit within a couple weeks.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Wait.  He quit his job to avoid child support?

While not explicitly stated, the evidence says likely.  I see it happen every once in awhile.  We get the order in, and the guy is gone within a couple weeks.  Happens about as often as a new hire calling to all what he needs to do to her support set up.  Far ends of the bell curve.

Actually, something happened a couple weeks back that i wanted to share. Like i said, there's a small group of pagans at my UU church; they often meet in a room to perform pagan sermons in one of the rooms on the church grounds(also, if you want a surreal experience, try watching someone wave around daggers and cups and pentagrams in the middle of an empty daycare room). I've been to a couple of their events, and their generally nice folks. A couple weeks back, they asked me if i wouldn't mind performing an Erisian ritual for Eostre, since the lady they usually ask to do this is kinda unreliable, and i was honestly considering  doing it, not because i've ever done a ritual, but because this just seems like too good a mindfuck to pass up. Given what i said earlier, is this more hypocritical than it is potentially hilarious?

It depends on how sincere you are.

Obvious, but needed to be said.


Also, do you really want to do a ritual designed to get the Goddess of Strife to notice you?

If i weren't sincere about doing a discordian ritual, i would make up some ridiculous nonsense in order to take the piss out of them.

DON'T DO IT

TRUST ME

I DID IT ONCE.
