Getting to Know You, JUNE by Glitterwolf

Recommended Posts

I'm not a practicing Catholic anymore but I remember a lot of it and can appreciate folks praying before dinner and enjoying the various feast days. :)

 

We did not do anything special but I am sure my parents were busy all day yesterday haha!

Question June 1sth.

Second Day of Pentecost.. Is it a special day for you, do you have plans for it?

 

Nope, I'm like everyone else, had to look it up. I knew of the existence of Pentecost, but couldn't have told you what it was. I saw "Second Day of..." and began to wonder if that was almost like a "12 Days of Christmas" thing, lasting several days in observation.

 

In an alternate branch of time I might have known what it was, as my ex-fiancée was from Romania where it is also a holiday, but clearly events did not happen that way.

 

Planning to spend the day taking a dog to the groomers, waiting in the car for him to be done, and then watching some Netflix. Maybe some minis. But first PopTarts!

I grew up very Catholic and I don't think Pentacost was ever celebrated in any way. On the plus side, it's my day off, so I will be cleaning house and making chicken salad and falafels. How's that for plans?

I have plans for June 1st. We do not celebrate Pentecost so my plans are unrelated.

 

Today, the UNT summer classes start, all online, for both my son and myself.  I have an art fraud and an Eastern Philosophy class that I am looking forward to.

 

And with my MOD hat, will gently remind that religious discussions belong in Bees.

Also had to Google it, so... No?

 

I mean, I've seen the word before, but never paid any attention to it. Maybe my mother would've known about this being a thing once. But I've never heard of it ever being a holiday over here (Catholic background).

Nah, pretty much just a Christmas and Easter kind of guy.

Like many other's, I had to look it up. I think I had heard the word before, but never knew the significance.

 

So, today is just Monday, June 1st for me.

I also had to look it up.:lol:

Secondary question: Did you know what it means without looking it up?

 

 

I've heard of it but don't know what it means. Didn't google it yet. My special plan is I slept in. Not for religious reasons but because the wife wants to got to the farm to finish planting the garden and it takes her awhile to get going in the mornings.

 

I'm like Grumpy Cave Bear celebrating Christmas and Easter. My grandparents on both sides had bad experiences with a couple churches so my parents and my generation grew up with very little religion. Good morals always seemed more important.

I was raised by Quakers and the Pentecost itself represents a special day for them. The second day of Pentecost though isn't something that I ever remember "celebrating." Modern Quakers are slightly different than the ones I grew up with and so this may have changed over time. I'm very private when it comes to my own religious beliefs and observances, and therefore today is no more special to me than any other day. I do like the idea of gathering with friends for a shared meal and having a nationwide reason to do so. Therefore, I hope you enjoy your Gourmetten (a term I did have to look up) Glitterwolf, and if possible post pictures of the spread. I'm guessing it will be delicious!

Today is a special day... but it has nothing to do with Pentecost.  ::):

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, SEPTEMBER** 2020 Edition, **brought to you by the number 7, and the Roman Empire.
       
       
      The latest iteration of the rules follows (LAST EDIT: 1 SEPT 2020):
       
      1. Every day a question will be posted (but see rule 7). 
      1.5. Should I fail to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy & former Quisitors, will probably step in and post one (but see rule 3.5).
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer the question of the day before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted as early as 1 Minute after Midnite or as late as Noon CDT (Central Daylight Time, U.S. )
      3.5 @MusicalFeline  is primary backup this month. MF, please note this is a ^ 12 hour span ^ but if I haven't managed by then jump in.
      4. Anyone is encouraged to suggest future questions. Send a PM to the current or any previous Quisitor. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question feels like TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will often be formatted as  two or three day quests, or multi-part related questions, posted on Fridays or Saturdays.
       
       
      All HAIL W.O.O.F!

      By Velrock on Thingiverse.  I used a lighter winter color scheme for the pack.  I know they look all cute and fluffy but they are really vicious hunters.  I did these three as part of my July 4th holiday weekend Paint Binge. 
       

       
      I used a combination of Secret Weapon bases and base inserts.
