Spiritually Drained

Oh America! My heart is just breaking for you…I can’t imagine what it must be like to live there right now, I’m drained and I’m not even American. I’ve stopped going on Facebook, it’s all too hard…and the fake news stories! They are just the worst!

Chrissy Teigen nails it again!

I don’t think I could have said it better myself. I don’t even know what words I can say to make it better, and I really don’t think that my words could honestly do anything. One thing I’m doing is starting to buy all my favourite comedies, so I don’t have to watch the tv, so I don’t feel the need to go on Facebook.

It’s very frustrating when there is very little you can do…at all.

For the last time…

I feel really lucky and yet feel horrible for saying that I am so happy to be an Australian and not an American today…I have forbidden the topic of the whole political situation right now. I can’t vote, so I feel completely hopeless and helpless, that I can ‘t vote. However, I saw this very beautifully written speech by Dan Rather (Wikipedia) and I had to share it. I am going to say though I don’t think it’s something I want to deal with anymore, it’s so toxic for me. It doesnt help that I can’t even vote!

TGIF!

As the heading says TGIF! I have been oooing and arring all week whether or not I really want to be the Australian that throws the Halloween party…I’ve decided…I do! I do indeed! I haven’t “sent out the invitation” (ie send invites on Facebook yet).

Whenever I’ve been over to America though, I have pretty much made sure that I head over at the two most important times of the Halloween and Thanksgiving…mmm…chocolate pie! So I’ve been looking up ideas before I’ve told anyone about it. So here a couple of ideas that I’ve found (and that might be helpful for you too!):

15 Tricks To Throwing A Killer Party On The Cheap

I found the above link through a Facebook page called “The Tipsy Bartender” They have amazing ideas for drinks and so forth. The title does speak for itself though, they have some really good ideas to throw a party on the cheap. Which are good ideas if you are just looking to do a “party”, you know, just have some friends around and get some drinking and games on.

What are some of your party ideas? Do you panic (like me) or are you a nice and chilled party host?
