I find it’s always better to be organised for these sorts of things. Make sure that you have enough candy, chocolates and lollies for Halloween trick and treat, a costume (even if you only trick and treat), Movies! Music! Then you have to consider anything extra. Like what shall I do for Samhain. I’m going to be alone for most of the Halloween weekend! Do I dare watch the scary films!
So far, I’ve gotten at least one bucket of sweeties, but I definitely need more.
I need to look through my stuff to see if I have simple costume for trick and/or treating, haha.
Do I have “creepy” music playing in the background, for when someone knocks on the door?
There are a lot of things to consider, and I’m not even throwing a party!
When I said I don’t know where I get my taking on everyone’s battles for them came from. My mum and dad are both pretty laidback, except when it really matters. My mum jumped on the back of a bully who was burning out cigarettes’ on a kid. My Dad either took on the Union, or he was forced to become part of the Union.
That I am a hopeless case…
I am 100% a Taurus, I’ve got Irish Catholic blood in me, and I am exactly like my Great Grandfather aka Papa Joe. She thinks if he was still alive today, and the current state of the world, he’d have another heart attack.
Out of the American “Holidays” … Halloween is my favourite, but they probably got that from the Celtic Pagans and their festival of Samhain. Anywhoo, this is the month where we “celebrate” the dead!
This year I think I want to see about how to “celebrate” my Samhain side. I think this year is turning out to be even crazier than last year. I’ve already got stuff together for trick and treaters though! Even though I am Australian, last year, the neighbours actually did the whole trick and treating thing. This year, I would like to join them.
Mainly for myself though, I would rather do Samhain. We are currently looking at homes for my Gran, and we need to be really be able to go at anytime.
So some things I was thinking of was:
Make my own little witch broomsticks (just little tiny ones from twigs out the back). Hang them around the front.
I’m getting just a plain black wreath, so I can probably do something with that.
Light candles, even if it’s just those little flickering fake ones.
I’m thinking because Samhain is for honouring and thinking of those who have passed. I don’t know how, but make a little memory table, and perhaps, even get people in the community to write down the name of a lost loved one. Then take them and burn them in our fire pit, or barbecue.
It being the birthday of the hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, two fictional characters in J. R. R. Tolkien’s popular set of books. According to the fictional setting, Bilbo was born in the year of 2890 and Frodo in the year of 2968 in the Third Age (1290 and 1368 respectively in Shire-Reckoning.)
I’m posting because that way it’s still technically the 22nd of September where I live. So celebrate by playing with a Dragon or two, and HAVE that second breakfast!
Did you know? Due to the discrepancies between the fictional Shire calendar and the Gregorian calendar there is some debate about when to celebrate Hobbit Day, since the actual birthday would be between September 12 and 14 in the Gregorian calendar, as explained in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings.
Personally, I think when we talk about fiction, you need to stick with the fiction world’s calendar. It is always nice when the real world and the fiction world can work together. However, sometimes it is even nicer, to not have the real world collide with the fiction world. Keep the real world and the fiction world separated.
I was listening to ANOTHER cover song/remix of a song I love, but did not enjoy it again. I was with my mum at the time. We started talking about how few songs there are, that we enjoy, that are covers or remixes. So I thought that I would post my Top 5 of what I consider to be the “best”. Mainly because I don’t have many, lol.
In no particular order…
Couldn’t have a list about covers and remixes without this one, I like it more than the original:
“Got My Mind Set on You” was the last song by a Beatle to top the Billboard Hot 100, but the song itself wasn’t actually written by a Beatle. It was written by Rudy Clark in 1962, and it was James Ray’s jazzy version that Harrison encountered during a (pre-Beatlemania) visit to the US in 1963. More than two decades later, an off-the-cuff remark from “Dream Weaver” singer Gary Wright about “Got My Mind Set on You” recalled the older song to Harrison.
So, I went to see the second Suicide Squad, I didn’t see the first one. I am a huge fan of the animated Harley Quinn, so I didn’t like the whole blue and pink outfits, or the one Hyena. Give me two hyena or none at all. However, I actually wanted to see this one.
Harley Quinn had her black and red (which I can see all the girls and some boys wearing), and I have a huge crush on Irdris Elba, adore John Cena. I’m not going to reveal anything. However, I really did love it. The cast were fantastic, great music and lovely back stories.
It did make me think though, I did adore Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. She was very energetic and fun and crazy, and what you’d want in “real life” Harley Quinn. Unlike the cartoons though, there was just that little bit lacking. She was great though. I jsut got thinking though
How many times have we been disappointed, or loved, from seeing a favourite character come to life on the big screen?
So just you know, I am about to stream on Twitch for the second time. This time though, I am just testing a few things, because last time my whole channel went hay wire about half way through. So, if you want to watch and have a giggle at my expense … Head to Twitch tv, and the search for Lady Lolsy
I would really love to know if anything is even working, I have asked my partner but he’s playing his own game at the moment, lol.
I am one of those people, if I don’t write it down, if I don’t put it out there in the public it never gets done. I have been wanting to start to learn how to draw for a long time now. But I’m always finding a excuse not to start, but now I have little money to spend, but a lot of time. Why not start today?
See, that was the other thing, I was trying to think of writing a post here, right now. However, I couldn’t think of anything.
Last week, I did stream on Twitch. Because I wrote a post about how I was going to, rather than I would really like too and I did it. I nearly did it yesterday, but I was too busy…and see!!! I didn’t write down that I was going to do it, so I didn’t end up doing it!
