I was reading on here a couple of weeks ago and there was a dialogue around mindfulness. Someone was asking if there was a thread on the subject. I'm not sure what thread it was or if the question was answered. Is there a thread around mindfulness or something similar? Anybody?

Idea for a new thread: "would I lie to you?" For instance, once, when I was very drunk, I decided to change the beds. I became very entangled with the duvet cover, and was still wrapped in it when my daughter got home 3 hours later. True or false?
Thanks, D - that's the kind of game I love playing (as well as Ruby's Two Truths & A Lie) :D

The mods gave it some thought (and some time to see if the idea was picked up by others) and, as SB and Sheila have suggested, we think it would be best if you wanted to try these as games on the Games Thread. I know we usually play A-Z over there, but the thread was originally created for any kind of (permissible!) online game that members wish to play. If the idea takes off and some people end up wanting to play A-Zs while others want Truth or Lie, we'll re-evaluate the situation. Hope that's ok? ;)?

Hi Luna. I merged an old ID with this one a few years ago but can't quite remember how I did it other than I may have e-mailed Tobin and had it done that way.

Maybe one of the mods can help a bit more.

Pork, dear <:)>
I wasn't really upset - I just find sometimes that some threads get a bit derailed (and that happens and I am sure I have done it too).
Like the share thread - here we had it such that if we had something to say/share but didn't want to barge in on ongoing conversations - here is a place to put thoughts. Or pictures (BTW I LOVED your moon pics). Or whatever, I like it.

I'm a bit sensitive to cliquey stuff (started at school and I still see it at work - I'm 53 now and still can't get into the "cool gang" - which in offices and women-dominated arenas - is brutal, may I say so).

I am still a bit of a tomboy and don't fit in with the regular girlie crowd. I am also not native in the country I live in and that doesn't help either. Nearly 30 years here and still "outsider". :cry:

Anyway, no intention to cause hard feelings - but this thread is for ideas and requests - i.e. to Tobin - just wondered about topics etc.

Let's just move on :-)

Just wondering if the Allen Carr thread could be renamed quit lit or something similar, personally I couldn't get into his book but have read a few other quit lit books which I think are very helpful.

Thanks for listening.
