Robin Williams <3

Originally I was going to take a ‘hiatus’ from all types of social networking sites (except for this Sea Eagle webcam that I am now watching in replacement of the little Baby O’s). However I happened to peer over the shoulder over a friends computer while they were reading some news on the computer and saw the extremely sad news =( At first I thought he had died from a heart attack, but now it appears that it looks like a suicide.

I think this is one of the genuine times that I feel really upset about hearing of a “celebrities” death. I absolutely LOVED Robin Williams, he always had me cracking up…or in some cases, really freaking me out and making me cry.

‘Lightning storm of comedy’ Robin Williams dies of apparent suicide” “The Australian 2014”.

Robin Williams just had this amazing ability to take any situations and just make you laugh till your tummy and cheeks hurt and the tears rolling down your face and you have to walk out of the room because you cannot breath any-more…Can’t forget his dramatic pieces of work either! That man had so many facets and was extremely talented. I always thought that there was a bit of sadness, but it was always hard to see between the laughing. There was always just something in the background, but it’s one of things that you notice if you’re watching his stuff over and over again. I think he needed the hyperactivity to keep his mind off of other stuff…That is just my personal opinion though. His drug and alcohol addiction was pretty well known over the years…Still it is shocking.

The Single Womans Blogging challenge Day 21-28

Here is the last group of the Single Woman’s Blogging Challenge and I nearly forgot to do it! It’s been a great experience, it’s been giving me a reason to continuously Blog and I’ve let you in the Blog world know things about myself that I don’t think I’ve even told my friends about.

Anyone who is interested in taking up this challenge (I think guys could do this as well, that’s just me) should check out this link (I don’t know what I’ll do with myself now) :

 

The Single Woman 30 day blogging challenge, published 2013

22)   What fictional character in a movie, tv show, or book do you identify with and why?

Oh my goodness this is a tough one! I love the fictional word (for those who couldn’t guess) and there are so many different fictional characters I relate too. I also feel that I’ve related to certain different characters at different times.  I relate to movies/books like The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings just because a lot of people agree that that would be the world for me! Or a place like Narnia, I guess characters that come from a feudal type of world…but with much better health facilities, lol. I guess I don’t relate to a character, but more I relate to the characters in a particular type of world.

23)   Talk about a moment when you got annoyed with a married friend, a person in a relationship, or a person with kids (Be honest! No judgment!)

I am constantly getting annoyed! I don’t know many people who make me want a relationship or to be a mother to be honest. I see so many bad parents and people who are constantly cheating or are in relationships for the wrong reasons. There are one or two couples that make me go “Awww” but they are very few. As for parents…Damn some of them are SO bad! I literally will tell my partners that they never have to worry about getting myself pregnant on purpose and then I go into the horror stories. Some of these parents are my best contraceptive, lol

24)   If you could relive ONE day of your life, what would it be? And would you change anything?

Once again there are so many that I’m not sure I could ever choose. There are two that I wish I could change in particular. One would be I would have stayed longer in the room when my great grandfather was dying (I was only two and seeing him hooked up to the machine freaked me out). The other would be there is one person in particular that I would tell them just how much I loved them instead of being so frightened and assuming that they knew. Being older and wiser, although I know they know that I love them, they will never understand how much and why and now I’m not really in a position to tell them.

25)   Describe a moment when you “paid it forward.” What happened and how did it feel?

I feel like I am always paying it forward, someone does something friendly or unexpectedly friendly for me and this puts me in a good mood that I go and do something for someone else.

26)   Name a song that makes you cry every time you hear it and why

The song that gets me every single time without fail is from the “Phantom of the Opera” and it’s called “Wishing you were somehow here again”. It reminds me of those who have passed on before me and who I miss…Because I always wish that they were still here.

27)   Talk about something that you really, really, really love about yourself.

I have a hard couple of years of extreme self-doubt, but the thing I love about myself the most is my loyalty. I am discovering how rare this attribute actually is. Even when I am completely down on myself I am so happy for anyone else that I care about and will always help and support in what ways that I can. It shocks me how many girls will wake up in a bitchy mood and just go “Oh I’m going to be a bitch today because that’s the way I woke up” (it also shocks me just how many guys worship these girls too).

28)   Describe a moment when you made a big, bold move. In any area of life: Career, Love, etc.

Definitely love! I had never had a serious relationship until I met my first serious boyfriend at the age of 21. I had had boyfriends, but they’d only last a couple of months, I have no idea why I had no interest in relationships during high school, I just didn’t I guess. So what do I do for the first time I fall in love? I don’t just go and date some local boy, oh no I had to go to the extreme and fall in love with someone from a completely different country. It was hugely rewarding though, although the first time I went over my ex went to the wrong terminal…For about an hour I was panicking that I had been stood up in a different country! lol…We ended up being together for 3 years and we are still really good friends.

The Lion Kings!

So here we are with my second Magical Monday…Even if no one else enjoys these, I have been!lol…It’s been great looking at all these different characters that I have fallen in love with over the years.

My next choice is probably putting together a bunch of species of characters together…The Lion!

I’m not talking about in the biblical sense, but two of my most favourite characters of my entire life are Mufasa (The Lion King) and Aslan (Narnia). I love Lions, I love their sense of their pride and how they take care of one another (except when new male lions takeover of course).  I have seen so many video’s lately of these big and powerful beasts playing gently with the likes of humans.

The death of both Mufasa and Aslan (or near death) still after nearly 30 years can make me cry! I love the strength that both these characters have in taking care of their respective families. I could never ever choose between the two, I always wanted Alsan to come and take me away and I always wanted Mufasa to be my Dad!…(I really do love you still Dad though ~.^).  In fact I have got the Lion King on DVD but I have never watched it because I know I’ll cry, lol.

Mufasa comes from the movie “The Lion King” which was released in 1994 (exactly 20 years ago) and produced by Walt Disney Studios. Mufasa is introduced at the beginning of the film as the King of a kingdom called “Pride Rock”. The movie is mainly based around Mufasa’s cub “Simba” and what happens to him after Mufasa is ‘murdered’ by Simba’s Uncle Scar.

Mufasa voiced by – James Earl Jones.

Aslan is one of the main characters of the series “The Chronicles of Narnia”, he is the only character to show up in every single one of the seven books. It is fairly well-known that Aslan is based on the Christian idol ‘Jesus’. Aslan is a talking Lion of the mystical land ‘Narnia’ and is a leader and has many followers including: humans, mermaids, centaurs, Dwarfs…Just to name a couple! As gentle as he may seem, Aslan is never referred to as a ‘tamed lion’ because he can be as dangerous and extremely powerful.  A lot of people believe that “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” is the first book in the series, this is not true. Although the author, C.S. Lewis wrote “The Magicians Nephew” sixth, it is actually a prequel to the “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” and explains how Narnia was created.

Aslan voiced by – Liam Neeson.
