Welcome to the couch, old and new! A place to hang out - sometimes you get immediate feedback, sometimes you don't.

Shouting, "Cool Whip" tends to bring others out from between the cushions if you're feeling lonely.

This is a chatty thread. All are welcome. We're kind of psychologically oriented, sometimes. We try to be supportive. At times we discuss what that means.

It’s a place to plop down on the couch when you come home from work or wherever, or wake up in the middle of the night, or check in at lunch, rant a bit or not, and be among friends.

We advise you not to drink or drug and text your therapist ("T") - we speak from experience.

Sometimes the thread moves fast and you might get overlooked; sometimes it moves slowly and all you hear are crickets. Sometimes you get hugged or thanked pages later. So if it's a bigger question, you might want to start a new thread.

Grab a cushion, a spot on the floor, or an armchair in the corner and make yourselves comfy.

And remember - choose cheese! Dairy or non!

Mozzarella!

Also as a part of my new say "yes" phase: I tried Adriatikos and Trappista cheese.

Liked the first more than the second.

While I like to try and make cheese - I am not a big fan of eating it much. I like it on things like lasagna, pizza, cheeseburger (it is right there in the name), and every so often on crackers or really good bread - but my life would pretty much be the same without it.

I think we need a new couch rule: every post must mention the theme of the couch somehow. So a word related to cheese must appear in each post.

It will stretch our intellects. And a rind is a terrible thing to waste.

Peppercorn cheddar
Gouda Parmesan
Bleu, the good stuff
Pepper jack
Goat cheese, plain, honey, spicy
A good melty mozzarella
Cheese

I am a cheese fan.
Bicycle guy and I have cheese night on Fridays. There’s other stuff to go with but it’s really about the cheese.

(trigger cuz it's sad)
Possible trigger:
Penny seems to be doing just fine as the lone cat - she is spending more time with me than she used to in the evenings, lying next to me on the couch wanting me to rub her head, sweet girl. But other than that she seems to be doing fine so I'm glad about that. We weren't sure how she was going to react because she liked to hang around Stormy so much.

All the hugs, Artie.
I'm glad you have something to remember Stormy, and it's wonderful that you could do that for your son.

❤️❤️❤️❤️🐾
