“Likes”

There’s something that needs to be explained to me, something I really don’t understand and was hoping someone could explain it too me.

I do not understand for the life of me, why some people “like” alt-right comments. By “people” I mean, seemingly by ‘resisters’. For example, a Trump supporter will write something, usually stupid and no sense. There will always be  a few resisters who will like the comment, but I personally don’t get it? I’ve always seen liking a comment as agreeing , supporting or showing “togetherness”.

I honestly do not understand.

Perspective

It’s getting closer to my Birthday and I anticipate one or two things maybe Harley Quinn related…I am a massive fan of Harley Quinn, mainly original Harley…

The thing is though a lot of people think because I like Harley Quinn, then I must love her relationship with the Joker…and I actually detest it

…It’s a completely abusive relationship.

Harley Quinn, too me, is a crazy gal, who just wants to be love and accepted…and she LOVES her “babies” (Bud and Lou)…Those moments where she feels betrayed by the Joker and she tries to be a “good guy” but no one really lets her. I feel like that sometimes, I feel like I’m doing the right thing, but others make me feel bad for doing it…Only difference is I don’t go to the dark side.

Share Your World

Share Your World…January 29, 2018

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?

Oh dear…How could I chose?! It’d have one of three and would honestly depend on what I needed the most at the time. I would love either IKEA, Zing Pop, Rose Wholesale (online though), Crossroads or Dymocks. The only problem with Dymocks is that it’s a bookstore and they don’t sell book cupboards…So where would I put all the books?!

What is the worst thing you ate recently?

Buffets are always a bit of a give and take…Some of the food I ate was so yummy, but the chicken teriyaki…The chicken wasn’t cooked properly!

Name five things you like watching…

I am assuming that is about shows or movies I like watching rather than genres? It’s what I’m going to go with!

  • Homicide Hunter.
  • Any shows that are about Ancient Cultures.
  • Last Week Tonight with Jon Oliver
  • I have really been loving Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. It’s completely fascinating and I highly recommend it!
  • Wow Presents: Bro’Laska…It used to be a YouTube show, but now you have to pay for it. On a different platform.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

As always my puppy, Pippy. I like to call her my unofficial therapy dog. Animals are just lovely.

15 Bookish Facts about Me

After reading through the fascinating post written by the amazing Blogger Addlepates and book nerds (Go and check them out!) I decided to “steal” and write up my own list, especially after what I wrote with my last post last week about having a Reading Block. I went with 15 instead of 25 because I kept stopping and starting and realised this was about to post!lol

  1. I am yet to try out Kindles and e-readers. It’s not that I am totally against the idea, it’s more that I haven’t really gotten around to it. I’ve asked for one for Christmas and Birthday and nothing yet!
  2. Like my previous post suggests, I either read a lot or not at all. I can’t just seem to read a chapter or so. I either start and don’t stop, or I don’t start at all!
  3. I don’t really enjoy pure romance novels like “Mills and Boons”, but I would never discourage someone from reading them either.
  4. My Grandmother was a really good Library Manager and when I was little I used to visit her at the Library all the time and joined in all the holiday activities.
  5. I still have a lot of books from my childhood, but a lot of them are now in boxes. I still love pulling them out and reading them.
  6. Talking about childhood books, there’s always a couple of them I read every single year.
  7. I’ve just recently thanked everybody who bought me books when I was kid, they are expensive!
  8. I want more bookcases…Who doesn’t though!
  9. My favourite author is Jodi Picoult, I love the research she does and how she can write a story from every point of view.
  10. I once wrote a few episode ideas for a TV show based on a fantasy online role playing games I was playing at the time. Think X-Men Evolution. Except, instead of mutants, you had sorceress, elves, and humans, etc. I think it’s somewhere still in my house.
  11. Writing about writing, I currently have a book I’m writing for fun, based on a character I played in a game called Monster Hunter.
  12. I was the only Year 12 (Senior at High School) who understood what Shakespeare was talking about.
  13. I can enjoy a book and the movie adaption without hating the other. I can see them as their own work. Except for making Fili and Kili’s death all about Tauriel!!! I didn’t even mind her until that happened.
  14. I try to buy at least new three books a year. Which probably doesn’t sound like a lot, but I’ve got no space either. I very rarely throw any out.
  15.  I find that there is a book quote for every single thing in life. It’s one of the reasons I started “Weekly Random Literature Quotes”.

Just like Addlepates and Book Nerds, I am also going to tag the last five people who followed me. In no particular order:

I Quit! … Facebook!

So I have officially decided to quit Facebook, I haven’t gotten rid of it because I still want to see what’s happening to those I care about and about 75% of my invites are now through Facebook. As for writing statuses and such I’m also going to limit what I like on Facebook, mainly only liking the posts regarding the safari drives I watch.

I just can’t stand the negativity, the falseness and it just generally makes me feel bad being on there.
