Thursday Theories – Reality IS important

I just want to start this post off by saying, that I am so glad that some people “expose” themselves. And I unfollowed them.

I also want to ask, if it’s completely sad that I am sad about Internet Explorer?

What this post is more importantly about, is how important it is too talk about some of the realities in this world.

January 6th.

I’ve seen some people say that what’s the point of these current hearings. He was acquitted, why bother? Are they actually kidding?

This hearing is exposing the people who acquitted Trump, in the first place. Too sit there and actually say that these hearings have no purpose now, is ridiculous. We are talking/writing about the biggest corruption within the Republican Party, the Party who nearly brought America to it’s knees, since Nixon. Of course it’s important, how could it not be? You would have to either be complicit, have no understanding what Jan 6th did to America, or a complete idiot, to think these current hearings have no benefits.

I’m not even sorry for saying this. Trump is now throwing his own daughter under the bus.

It is really refreshing to see Republican’s and Trump Supporters being called out for WHAT they are. I don’t know about you all, but I am finding such clarity in the hearings.

Refresh

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you probably would have seen my post about how I gave myself a “day off” over the weekend. Like I pretty much did whatever I wanted. Which include not coming on here, and I wrote about the guilt of it all.

But it was what I needed, even with the guilt, even with the feeling of obligation that I felt to let people know.

So, apart from the guilt, it was good.

See, the weekend before, I had a cold. I also was supposed to see my Gran on the Saturday, and my partners Nan on the Sunday. You all know what its like when you’re sick, it’s not a “break” when you’re sick. Being sick is not a holiday.

I read so much, I played my computer games, I even got to do some journal writing. I didn’t have a bath, but lovely showers and I even took care of my feet, lol. I put on some incense. I did not over eat, but I enjoyed my food! ❤ What do you do to refresh and recharge?

Thursday Theories – Multi tasking

Which do you think is better for you brain? Too multi-task or not too multi task.

I’m not going to answer outright, I’m going to write this out. Please while you read this, stay in the moment and read this post. Do not do anything else, just read.

I was watching television program on the ABC the other day called “Our Brain”. It was absolutely fascinating.

I wanted to write about one specific thing that I found really interesting from the documentary. Multi tasking.

When I listened to it, it made a lot of sense.

The term multi tasking was from computers. Now clearly, our brains are not computers. As humans, therefore we are not actually multi tasking. What we are actually doing is called swish tasking. We’re not focusing on one task, we’re going back and forth between tasks. Which ultimately, stresses our brain out.

There is a huge difference between focusing and swishing around.

Like it says in the documentary “Multi tasking doesn’t exist”.

Thursday Theories – What’s in a name

Well, according to some TERFs, that if you change your name, that means you’ve “cut off” the parental link…I am not even kidding..,

If you actually believe this, you need help.

It starts off with “A name is given with love”.

Which might, in some cases, be true. Although reading through some of the comments, it seems that some parents gave their kids their names…cause…

Myself, as an example, I am named after Lauren Bacall. Which is pretty cool. I do feel like Lauren, but if I didn’t, that has nothing to do with my parents.

*You know* after the last couple of days this seems so not important, however, I will continue.

I could call myself…

It has nothing to do with my parents, and my “connection” to them.

How about yourselves? Do you think changing your name cuts off the connection to your parents? Is there a cool story behind your name?

Thursday Theories – Nice

So this isn’t really a “fact” thing type blog, it’s more a curiosity thing. So “bear with”.

I was just thinking today at work. What “made” me become nice? Was it innate, did I learn it, was it force onto me, is it a gift?

Its just seems more and more like a rare trait these days. Like the other week my mum’s work colleague, her mum had just escaped from the Ukraine, and on top of all of that they LOST HER LUGGAGE! So that night we all whipped different clothing. When we tell people that story, most of us say to us a lot of other people wouldn’t. I was like, really?

Then with my streaming and social media’s, people keeping telling I am so nice and you don’t see that a lot, really?

I think it’s a normal thing to get together clothes and things you can spare, last minute to someone. If I’m having a bad day, I don’t take it out on others. Is that really not that normal?

That’s why I started to think about it. I reblocked my Dad today as well, after unblocking him, to thank him for my present he gave me for my birthday. Only to not hear anything, until yesterday, where all he wanted was my brother’s address. So I gave it too him and then he said the oddest thing “Block Time…Bye” That man child, had been blocking me this WHOLE time! He STILL thinks HE’S the victim…WTF is wrong with him?!!!!

So definitely didn’t learn my kindness from him, lol

My mum, a little bit, I guess? She treats me with little respect, like that family that have controlled my life since I was 12, and am now 38. They ruined my birthday last year, she mocked this year for being grumpy around my birthday. They disrespect my partner and I, and she says nothing. So maybe not her either.

SO WHOOOOOO! As much as I can still relate to my great grandfather, he died when I was two, lol

You know, maybe it’s the pets?! That unconditional love has got to rub off, but I see a lot of bigots with pets of some sort. Do you know that amount of times I have said “SAVE THE DOGGO!KITTY!HORSES…various other animals” lol…

SO WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES US NICE/KIND!

Thursday Theories – Understanding

This is the problem with society today. It USED to be common that if you don’t understand something, you shut up and learn. It’s called having good listening skills. These days people will admit they don’t understand something, but it’s everybody else whose the idiot for you not understanding.

A quick break down.

Birthing person, pregnant person – Is inclusive language. It pretty much includes people who are not women, but are pregnant, so trans men. Birthing person can also include women who are pregnant, but will not be keeping the child after (for what ever reasons).

Mother Goose Day

National Mother Goose Day on May 1st each year honors Mother Goose and the imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes we loved as children. 

But I also just wanted to post something to say thank you to you all!

I’m trying not to cry, but I can’t help it. I’m not even drunk!

I like to feel like I’m a Mother Goose type person/character. Yes, some days are hard than others, but being here makes it all so much easier. I like to stories, fables and myths. As well as a few life lessons.

The figure of Mother Goose is the imaginary author of a collection of French fairy tales and later of English nursery rhyme. As a character, she appeared in a song, the first stanza of which often functions now as a nursery rhyme. This, however, was dependent on a Christmas pantomime, a successor to which is still performed in the United Kingdom.

Do you have a favourite mother goose tale?

Thursday Theories – Birthday

You’re probably thinking “Wait, you’re not writing something fun on your birthday” My dear friends and readers, this day is not over. I love to learn, so I learnt about Birthdays. We just take for granted we get one. How did they start? What does it mean? Numerology? Star Signs? There are some many things that take place on a Birthday.

  • “Happy Birthday To You” is the most popular song in the English language. But be careful the next time you sing it, it’s copyrighted!
  • August is the most popular birth month, accounting for nearly 9 percent of all birthdays in the world.
  • On the other hand, the month with the least amount of birthdays is February.
  • In 1997, Paul McCartney’s birth certificate became the most expensive birth certificate in the world, when it sold at an auction for $84,146!
  • Speaking of candles… the first birthday cake with candles was had in 18th century Greece.
  • Europeans were the first ones to use noisemakers on someone’s birthday, as they thought it would help keep evil spirits away.
  • William Shakespeare died on his 52nd birthday — April 23, 1616.
  • Early Christians viewed birthday celebrations as pagan in nature. 
  • In China, a newborn is considered age 1. Thus, a 1-year-old in the West, as well as most other parts of the world, would be aged 2 years in China.

There is a site that you can visit to find out what happened on your birthday: MyBirthdayFacts

What is numerology?

Definition: Numerology is the pseudoscientific belief in a divine or mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events.

A lot of Numerologists will use the numbers of the dates of your birthday, to give you a more spiritual type belief of who you are. It’s kind of similar to Astrology (your birth signs). You use the numbers of your date of birth, to figure out your life path number. Which is usually a single digit.

Each life path number has a different meaning.

It is calculated by adding up the numbers in your full date of birth.
For example, April 4th 1992, would be 4 + 4 = 8. Then the 1992 is broken down as 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 21.

Now you add the two digits of 21 together like 2 + 1 = 3.

This is the same with any double-digit numbers which you should keep adding together until you end up with a 1 digit number.
Example: 19 becomes 1 + 9 = 10, then 1 + 0 = 1). Finally, add the 8 and 3 together for your life path number i.e. 8 + 3 = 11.

So take today, as an example

29/04/2022

2+9 = 11

4

2+0+2+2 = 6

6+4+11 = 21 – 2+1 = 3

3 would be your life path number, if you were born today.

Mine is 1 =D

Thursday Theories – Hyacinth Bucket

My mum was telling about the article she was reading about a famous chef from South Australia. It was about how in only the last couple of years, all these people go to these top end restaurants. Instead of simply enjoying the meal, instead of savoring the perfectly put together flavour of the meal. Living in the moment. Customers come in now and go:

“I saw a Google recipe and I want this, this and this instead of that”.

Sound familiar?

But these people have forgotten that they’re dealing with top end, 5 star Chefs. So of course the answer is:

For the first time in a couple of years, I am all “THANK GOD FOR CRAZY CHEFS!”

When did we get so entitled? You’ve got people going to restaurants that are top class, and demanding that these Chefs cater to you?

Oh no darling!

The only difference between society and Hyacinth Bucket, is that Hyacinth Bouquet … spelt …. B-U-C-K-E-T. Usually gets her comeuppance. Whereas these people learn nothing, other than “Well I’m never going there again”. Which I am totally fine with, by the way.
