Uninspired

I had a thought over the weekend. I don’t know who here follows me on the Instagram, but I made a story a few days again talking about how I hadn’t felt like “celebrating” Halloween this year. Even though I was helping to throw a party. I didn’t feel inspired.

I went to reply to someone about how scary the “real world” is these days. We don’t need to celebrate Halloween, because we’re living in Halloween World right now. That’s when it hit me. That’s why I’ve felt so uninspired, because it’s true!

Questions Of The Day

  • Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And how’d that work out for you?   (Credit Allie Bean  https://thespectacledbean )

Just very recently really. I told myself I am not allowed to drink anything coffee anymore, coffee beans or milkshake. It worked out because I haven’t had any since and I didn’t have a total anxiety break down,lol

  • What is gravity and how does it work?

My partner is actually a teacher and he teaches this, but bugger if I know,lol. Something to do with how we move around the sun, or is it the sun moving around us?!

  • What is more real – Mind or Matter?

I feel like without ones minds, what would matter? Woooo, trying to get all deep,lol.

  • Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers? 

I didn’t expect this question, gave me a good chuckle. I think it would actually depend on what type of vegetarian they are and what’s in the animal crackers,lol. Some vegetarians do not have milk, or eggs, or butter from animals.

Lastly

Halloween Question:   

(Gratitude questions will resume after Halloween is past)

Name (describe) something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark and deserted wood or alley.   Politicians are a given, so skip those please.  Thanks! 

One word…Octopus…They are too smart and they fit everywhere! I will never forget the documentary about them. Where every morning the scientist would come back and all the crabs would be gone. So they put up a video and it was the octopus. Waiting till everyone left, leaving it’s tank, eating the crabs. Getting back to it’s tank before everyone come back in the morning. Then they showed…I don’t know if I should say this. They showed an octopus going through plumbing, the size of a shower pipe. I couldn’t relax on the toilet for at least a week,lol

Share Your World, 29th October 2018

For this special Halloween…ie…Share Your World … We were giving a lot of questions and we didn’t have to answer them all. If you would like to see all the questions, please press the above link.

What would you like your last words to be?

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Do you believe in any ‘mythical’ monsters like chupacabras or shadow people?

Sometimes I do! I believe more in like Spirits and the like. So maybe not so much Monsters, but Spirits, definitely Spirits. Monsters are totally real though, have you seen Donald Trump? Hahahahha

Are you afraid of or find clowns creepy?

I never used to find them creepy. Then over the last few years, they have just gotten creepier and creepier. Then when IT came out again, even though I never did go and see it. All I could think of, when I was in the shower, was some creepy clown showing up in the pipes -.- lol

Have you ever had your tarot cards read?

I actually read Tarot cards and have had them read to me. Once every couple of years a group of us get together and read cards, have them read. Do a whole mediation up the Levels of the Chakra. It’s so refreshing and renewing. I guess it’s like a new year, new year me type thing.

Do you think putting special emphasis on certain holidays – like Halloween is ‘spooky’ for example — is a good idea or just more mindless entertainment for the masses? 

I think it is exactly what the masses need. Even when the World is not in such a disarray. It’s something that’s, supposed, to be fun.  Something to just let go and have fun with.

Share a positive thought or message or something that’s inspired you this week.

Halloween and Paganism = Thank you!

I agree with the above article. A LOT of people complain about Halloween in Australia “We’re not Americans”. No we are not Americans but Halloween wasn’t “invented” by the Americans either. The only true part they came up with was the trick and treating. Like most “Christians” events…They were taken from Pagans/Celts…What is it with Americans and the Irish? They’ve always seemed to have “issues” lol.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samhain

I am actually part Irish (and I love it).

It’s a festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the darker half of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the  a Celtic Day actually began and ended at sunset. This is about halfway between. There are four other Gaelic Season Festivals: Imbolc,Bealtaine and Lughnasadh.

Samhain

A lot of Witches Celtic and Pagan, celebrate Sahmain for the “Thinning of the veil”, the one night of the year to celebrate loved one lost. The best night to speak with the dead. It’s just a funny thing because my Gran has always said that I tend to “live beyond the veil” sometimes. When I was little, if I didn’t want to be somewhere…I’d just go…If that makes sense? Not physically go…In the more “olden days” people would put out extra plates and cups for the dearly departed.

Veil is Thinning

I think the festival of Sahmain is something that really does speak to me. As mentioned above I am part Irish, so this seems absolutely perfect too me. My Gran, who is even more Irish than myself, is happy about this too. I did not know that she celebrated it too!

Samhain is pronounced “sah-win” or “sow-in.”

Do you have any traditions at this time of year?

QUESTIONS FOR THIS WEEK:

Name two books that have influenced you and share how.  (Credit for this question goes to Teresa of The Haunted Wordsmith.   She asked for TEN books, in her challenge, so the SYW folks got off a bit easy..) 

The first one that kept popping into my head “Playing Beatie Bow“. It’s a very famous Australian book, so I wouldn’t be surprised if most of my readers have not heard about it. It inspired me to use my imagination more. At the same time I was reading the book, I was going through a similar situation, so to be able to escape to another time. There was just a great escape to it.

The other book is, pretty much, all of the Tolkien books. For extremely similar reasons. Funny how neither of the books that have influenced me are about now,lol


In your opinion, where is the line between art and not art? 

Beyonce – Art … Kim Kardashian – Not art…Hahahahaha


Trivia for Halloween:   What item is banned only during Halloween from 12am October 31st to 12pm November 1st in Hollywood California?   (I know the answer, but I do not have any idea WHY)..c’mon…hazard a guess!  

Oh wow, as an Australian, I literally cannot think of anything. Trying to think of what might be a possibility. Since you said “Hazard”….The only thing I can think of is a fire extinguisher, but why would they ban that? I’m sure that would be illegal. Is it the sale of toilet paper?


What is something that really annoys you but doesn’t bother most people? 

I am not actually sure. A year or so ago I might have had an answer for this, but in the last year. I have been more and more surrounded by people who think similarly to myself. I honestly just can’t think of anything.


Instead of our usual gratitude question, I’m posing this one for this week:

What or who in your life brings you the most joy?

This is so funny because I have decided to make a list for New Years of not goals, but why I am grateful to be alive. Do I post what I’ve already got?

One month…Kind of…Halloween!

Now in Australia we don’t really celebrate Halloween, it’s still very much an American thing. However, it does seem to be on the rise “down under” Halloween has brought up some very important issues these last few years. From issues relating too appropriate costumes, to the decorations to “pranks”.

Also “A nightmare before Christmas” is my favourite…Just ever,lol

Rhyme: Hollywood Horror vs Real Life Horror

lizzy-borden

  1. Abby Borden was not Lizzie Borden’s mother, she was her step-mother.
  2. Abby was found to have been killed first, with 19 blows. Andrew Borden was killed second, with 10-11, but half his face was gone.
  3. Lizzie Borden’s jury consisted of 12 men.
  4. Although Lizzie was found “Not Guilty” she was ostracised by society.
  5. There have always been rumours that Andrew and Lizzie had a incestuous “relationship”.
  6. Modern techniques have found more, evidence to suggest that it was Lizzie Borden who committed the murders:
    The Lizzie Border Murder Mystery: History Channel
  7. Fingerprint testing was in it’s infancy stages at the time of the murder, but police did not trust it and therefore never used this technique during their investigations.
  8. You can stay at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast. I don’t know why you’d want to, but you can,lol. Guests can tour the property at 92 Second Street, watch an annual dramatisation of the events, stay overnight in the bedrooms originally occupied by Lizzie, Emma and their parents, and even enjoy the same breakfast the family shared on the morning of August 4, 1892.

Halloween: Trick or Treat?

So what do you prefer readers? Tonight on my television screen are all types of Halloween movie…Funny, Based on true events etc. Over the weekend I was watching a lot of documentaries of horror stories, a lot of whom real life stories have been turned into “Hollywood Magic”. My post this afternoon is based on probably one of the most well-known murderess after watching a show about her on the History Channel…Such a great channel! Whereas tonight I am planning on watching all the comedy type Halloween movies.

So what do you prefer to watch comedy, real life, psychologically thrillers. Or do you, like me, like to watch a combination of the lot?…With a glass of wine, or your choice of beverage ~.^
