Discovery

Egypt uncovers ancient necropolis south of Cairo

Archaeologist have found a ancient necropolis:

containing 40 stone sarcophagi, about 1,000 small statues and a necklace charm bearing the hieroglyphic inscription “happy new year”.

They are hoping with this new discovery (as well as others) that it will attract people/tourist to come back to Egypt. Every since the overthrow of former President Hosni Mubarak in 2011. The tourism industry has been affected.

I still call Australia home…

32. A city you’ve visited

I guess I would have to talk about Arizona in the United States of America. A few years ago I went there for a few months a time every few months….I would work my butt off in Australia for a few months and then stay in Arizona for a few months.  I was actually dating someone from Arizona and then of course, it just never seemed to work out.

I am grateful for it for a few various reasons. It was the bravest thing I had ever done. Everyone was shocked that I went over there, including myself. I never seemed the type to go over and potentially get stood up in a “foreign” country. Which actually nearly happened, because he went to the area.

Also though it made me brave for so many different reasons. I travelled by myself and I do get airsick. I had to learn to do a lot by myself. Travelling to America taught me how to really cook, rather than just heat things up. Walking around by myself, my partner at the time worked retail at Walmart and it was about 10-15 minute walk. I used to walk around and buy grocery shopping, I learnt a lot to do by myself.

6. The city you live in.

I feel very lucky with the town that I live in. You may sometimes read about one of my pages called Single in a small city? (Please go and have a look) The main theme from that category is that it can sometimes be really tough to date when you live in a small city. You either tend to keep bumping into your ex, or you are definitely friends with people who know them.

However, my city being a small city is part of the reason that I love it as well.

It feels so easy to escape when you want too. You drive from the city (or down town) and in 30 minutes you can be in a totally different place, the country, the river-land, beach towns. Even take my own street, we live a 10 minutes drive from the city (down town) and yet  my street reminds myself and other people have made comments of it reminding them of a little English town street. Even though we live within a walks distance to some of the big entertainment venues in our city, you can’t hear it. It feels cut off from that.

My particular suburb is also in-between three major roads in my city that go into the city, and yet, where I live, you can’t hear the traffic. I honestly just wished that other people lived closer to me because no one else lives in my area but it’s great. We’ve got parks and like I mentioned before we live like a 10 minute drive from the city and just as close to another major shopping centre.

Share Your World – 2015 Week #35

What made you feel good this week?

I suggest you all wander over to Pete’s Pond, when you see a baby elephant rolling around in the mud and water for the first time. It just warms the heart, I could watch it all day … I’m not kidding, I actually use Pete’s Pond and Djuma Cam as a form of “mediation”, it’s fantastic!

For potlucks or parties do you cook it yourself, buy from a grocery store, or pay for catering?

I’m not really a “cook” person. It;s funny really because it’s actually the guys in my family who LOVE to cook. They are always cooking and creating things, whereas I cook mainly to survive. Although sometimes I do love to create but it’s so rare and doesn’t happen to often. However I do try to “create” drinks for parties. Sometimes I’ll do all three!

What is your favorite part of the town/city you live in.  And what Country do you live?

There are so many little hidden treasures in Adelaide, even though Adelaide is comparatively small compared to cities like Sydney and Melbourne, but we have lots of “secret spots”. My favourite place to go though is “Victor Harbor” especially during the Spring and Summer time. It’s this little beach town, when the weather is right, it is perfect! I live in Australia.

Complete this sentence:  My favorite place in the whole world…..

To lie in bed, snuggling up with a good book on a sunny morning with the television on softly in the background.

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

Definitely Nacho Cheese Dorito chips! Summer or Winter, they are my favourite!

If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove nothing, which store would you pick? (except food or beverage)

Oh wow! I can’t remove anything? Maybe like a toy store then, so I could play with all the things but I wouldn’t really have a place to put them. So I could have play and then leave…Possibly leaving someone else to clean up the mess.

What was the largest city you have been to?  What is the one thing you remember most?

That would have to be between Arizona and Melbourne. They are both completely different but they are both different ways. Melbourne’s is mostly city and buildings (which are beautiful) but Arizona is mainly big due to their landscape.

Finish this sentence:  It has recently come to my attention that …. People these days appear to be a lot more “self-involved” then I remember them being. There is a lot more “I am right, you are wrong, no I will not discuss it”. 

What we leave behind

(First of all if you are not 18+ please do not read any further than this sentence!)

As I was having a shower I had a random thought (as you always do in the shower). My left leg for the past year or so will give me sudden twinges of pain, and it will last for a couple of days after I get it. It happened after last year…I don’t know how many of you watch “Sex and the City” there was episode called “The Catch”. If you know that episode you will understand completely what I mean when I say that someone from my recent past of last year is a “Jack Rabbit”.

After I stopped “copulating” with this person, within a week I had my issues regarding my leg. The other problem was my immune system was down and I had developed a cold, and when I gave my first cough…My lordy! The pain that shoot through my leg, my dog run away from me because I swore so loudly,lol.

The thought that I had while I was in the shower was actually about my best friend who has recently broken up with someone, and although she knew that I did not particularly like him (for good reason) I have gone either “I told you so” However she keeps doing, as sometimes happens, meeting up with him and I have this deep dark feeling that they will eventually get back together. As I was in the shower I had this thought “If only there was some sort of physical reaction we have that gives us pain, to remind us…”This person will cause you pain“…Of course, just as I was thinking I had my own pain shot through my leg.

Instead of crying out in pain or annoyance though, like I normally would have, I had a little grin to myself. I have my own little reminder of the person that gave me that pain. In that moment, I just had a slight happy satisifcation to myself. That pain will ALWAYS remind me…

For those who do not know what a “Jack Rabbit” is…Here’s a clue…(Don’t watch video unless you are 18 years of age and over).
