Share Your World – 09/14/2020

This week I am going with Roger’s Magic questions.

Roger’s Magical, Mystical Questions

  1. You have just been gifted a magic wand that specializes in completing household chores. You can request the completion of only two household chores. Which chores would you assign your wand to complete?
    Clean the whole toilet, I really hate doing that. Also vacuuming, sometimes. I don’t mind vacuuming, it’s a good work out! There are just sometimes I just really don’t want to do it. I don’t mind doing cleaning, I can find it therapeutic. Those two I really hate doing, especially the toilet.
  2. At the local Wizards-R-Us store there was a sale on handshake shockers, instant darkness pellets, and levitation pills. Which of these ‘party thrillers’ are you more likely to purchase?
    I would probably pick the levitation pills. Hopefully I wouldn’t get air sick though!lol
  3. In the alley behind Wizards-R-Us, there was a tradesman selling a Love Potion. The sales pitch was too much for you and you yielded and purchased one vial. What do you do with it?
    Aww, well I don’t need it…Lame, but true,hehe. I would save it maybe? Honestly, I would probably put in a safe somewhere. I’d be too worried that someone would else to make someone who doesn’t love them, love them. Maybe I could just pour it down the sink, honestly I wouldn’t even buy it.
  4. You are the Great Clearinghouse Winner of a new ‘good luck’ potion – Felix Felicis. It has to be used within the next thirty days or its potency becomes diminished. Do you use it? Do you give it to a friend in need?
    I use to it and use it to help with a lotto ticket, then when I won. THEN I’d help a friend in need,lol Speaking of which, there is a large lotto in Australia tonight,lol

Questions:

In your opinion, what’s the closest thing to real magic?

Nature. Just Nature itself. The birds, the bees…the planet. Am I completely lame?lol…Watching the clouds go by, keeping an eye on them, seeing if they’re “normal” clouds or “rain” clouds. Watching a bee push it’s way into flower. Watching a bee go after the only plant in the whole backyard, a weed. So now I’ve gone out and bought plants. Watching the birds swoop my cat,lol. Telling him to stay away, and rightly so! Watching a humpback whale come out of the sea. Nature is magic =D

(There’s tad and bits of whale, but start watching at 1:57).

Where is the worst smelling place you’ve been?

I haven’t actually been there, more like we’d drive past it. My cousins used to live near a mushroom farm! You didn’t even have to go in to the place to smell it, just needed to be the right temperature and the right wind…Smelly!

What are some things that you’ve heard in your own life, which sounded like compliments but were actually insults?

Oh, my brother is really good at this. I am not so good at it, or cannot always tell when it’s happening too me.

What incredibly common thing have you never done?

I don’t know,lol…I am incredibly common…haha


Gratitude Section (Optional, as always)

Please feel free to share some gratitude that you experienced during the past week!  🙂

Hate Crime Charges – Black Lives Matter mural painted over

GOOD!

What this couple did was, get so upset by seeing the letters BLM on a road. They decided to take it upon themselves, to paint out these letters. What is HILARIOUS about this situation though, I was arguing with someone by the name of Brandon Straka Founder of “Walk Away”. The reasoning for his “side”? Us Liberals got all upset over a noose, that wasn’t a noose in the end. We were the snowflakes for getting upset about something, at the time, which looked like a noose (Bubba Wallace). Yet, the post we were on, was about two white people getting so offended by letters. That they took it upon themselves, to get paint and paint over said letters in the middle of a road. Not the noose situation. According to Brandon Straka, what these two “people” did was compassionate and morals, something someone like Liberals would never understand.

It was funny as well, because I was thinking to myself. If they didn’t get permission to do that, which I really doubted at the time they had. They were going to get into trouble…And they did! I didn’t expect the hate crime, but I did expect the vandalism.

Brandon is not a nice person. There was a Trump supporter, who was surprised that Brandon was commending it, as Brandon, is also the first to point out about the statues. The TS said “If we are having a go and telling people off for vandalising, then we need to hold ourselves to the same standards” Brandon called him “mentally ill”. All these other TS’s came to Jeff’s defence, because Jeff is actually right. Brandon didn’t “read Jeff” right. As I pointed out though, Brandon read what Jeff wrote, perfectly fine. In case they hadn’t noticed, anyone who doesn’t agree with Brandon Starka is just automatically “mentally ill”. Like I said to Jeff “Welcome to the Red Pill…Have Fun!”.

QUESTIONS:

What’s the closest thing you’ve experienced to real magic?

I honestly, this is going to sound SO lame. I think seeing baby animals, any kind honestly, is magical. Even spiders and reptiles…Except for maggots. Baby animals are so magical. I could watch them for hours. I was actually nearly late for work the other day because as I walked to to work, I stopped and filmed some new baby duckling.

 

Who is the messiest person you know? And why? 

Honestly? It’d have to be between my partner and myself. I know, it’s terrible! We are actually getting better. That’s mainly because though the cat is sick, so we don’t want to leave him in a messy house all day. With it being so warm lately too, it’s not fair to leave him in a stinky warm house. My partner would probably say it’s me, but it’s both of us really.


If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?

Is there a way to stop people from believing and supporting Donald Trump?


What benefits does art provide society? Does art hurt society in any way?

I think it just depends on the Art and the Society, it’s trying to provide. Take the Covington Boys situation. You have young teenagers who are wearing red hats that have no healing proprieties what so ever. Thinking that somehow Nathan Phillips banging a drum is supposed to be him intimidating them? Yet everyone who knows, knows that Phillips was banging a healing drum and chanting a healing chant. It’s the same situation with Art. The people who get it, will get it and there will always be those that don’t and those that do.


What’s something positive you’d like to share?  Can be a smile, a joke, or music..anything that gave you a lift this week!

Honestly, it’s been the support of the others who hate Trump as much as we all seem too,lol…This week has seemingly been particularly rough.

Say hello to my new little “Moody Voodoo” Doll…Long time admirer first time buyer.

They are unique and handmade dolls and they have regular updates of new dolls. There was just no way I couldn’t say no this one! It also made me realise I need another bookshelf (and yes, that is a whole shelf of Jodi Picoult books).

I love her and little book though, it’s so cute! She also kind of reminds me of myself, just more Voodoo creepy like,lol.

(Okay, so that’s not the REAL Winston Churchill)

Celebrate International Unicorn Day with these magical happenings

  • Winston Churchill is probably best well known for being the Prime Minister during WW2. As well as some inspiring speeches.
  • There has been speculation over the years that Winston Churchill purposely created trouble to get the United States involved with WWII…Mainly speculation.

(Below is probably his most well-known speech)

  • Unicorns are believed to the epitome of purity and innocence.
  • Unicorns are one of the few mythical creatures that features in nearly every single ancient culture.
  • The unicorn is most notable in Heraldry for being employed as a supporter for the Royal Arms of Great Britain or of Scotland.

Magic

I just want to make my life magical…Adult magical though…Where I wont have to get chucked into a padded jacket though! I do have “adult” colouring books…But I want to live a life where it’s not weird to have Unicorns…Last year was too real for me…I want to make this year Magical!

Lady Midnight

*Spoiler Alert – I’m not 100% sure how much I’ll be giving away in this review, but I do discuss things I don’t understand in the book. Which might contain sneaks and peeks at the book.

I have only read one of Cassandra Clare’s series so far “The Infernal Devices“. I absolutely loved the series and I feel so bad that it’s taken me such a long time to get around to reading another one. I feel like I should also point out that I do believe and it is highly suggested that Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunters series are supposed to be read in a certain order which you can find here.

(My personal opinion here) The main players in this particular books are:

Emma Carstairs: a Shadowhunter,

Her parabatai (and “secret love” interest):  Julian Blackthorn,

Mark Blackthorn: who was kidnapped five years ago and now has been returned to the Blackthorn family after being kidnapped by the fairy people.

Breakdown:

The Dark Artifices series is the latest series in Cassandra Clare’s writings. In fact so far in this series there are only two books so far. The final and third chapter of this series should be coming out in fall of 2018. Look out for that!

This series is based around Emma and the murder of her parents from years ago, she did not believe that her parents death was a robbery gone wrong. She believes that there is more to her parents death than meets the eye, probably something even “supernatural”. Emma has been a Shadowhunter for a very long time and after her parents deaths she was then taken to live with the Blackthorn family. The Blackthorn have also lost their parents and live in the Institute with their strange Uncle Arthur.

Emmas parabatai is Julian Blackthorn, the now oldest sibling of the Blackthorn family, since the others were kidnapped or exile. Julian has been taking care of his younger sibling, Livvy, Ty, Dru and Tavvy since he was 12 years old. Julians older half  siblings, Mark and Helen Blackthorn are both half faerie, as their mother was of the faerie people.  Emma’s good friend Cristina also lives with the family and in the institute, she is only there for the year…As sweet as she is, no one really knows that much about her.

*For those who don’t know what a parabatai is, it as a pair of Nephilim warriors who fight together as lifelong partners, bound together by oath, regardless of their gender. Their bond is not reflected only in their closeness and willingness to lay down their lives for one another, but also in oath—one sworn in front of the Council. Parabatai cannot fall in love*

Positive:

I absolutely enjoy this book, can I just start off with.

It did reference the other books and what Shadowhunters word meanings are, so you do know what the words mean, as you are going into the book. It made it almost feel like you don’t need to read the other books before this one. (Please do though) The only thing that you would really have to read the other books for is about the attack on one of their Libraries, where a important document was stolen. As well as getting to know the other Shadowhunters as they pop in and out of the book, with a brief history of what their characters achieved.

What I enjoy about Cassandra Clare’s books is that you can get lost in a completely made up world, that makes you feel that this world could actually be possible. It’s why I think her books are so popular, it is fantasy, but ever so close to the real modern world. It’s kind of like Harry Potter and how we, as muggles, cannot actually see the world of Magic, but it’s always there.

Negative:

I always have a hard time picking on the things in a book that I’ve really enjoyed reading. There was one thing that I didn’t really understand and felt like it didn’t really need to be in it. It was right at the end “A Long Conversation”. As I mentioned above, there good be a reason why it was at the end of this particular book, but I felt like it didn’t really need to be there.

It also did bug me a little how I had always assumed that parabatai were supposed to know how the other was feeling at all times. That’s kind of the point of having a parabatai. Somehow though, and when it seems to suit, they completely have no idea how the other feels.

 

 

GoT conspiracy theories!

I love a good conspiracy theory and with the popularity of Games of Thrones, there have definitely been quite a few going around! I think that I have loved every single one of them. One of the most recent ones I have read and am interested to find out what you all think about, is the Wall of the Nights Watch, it’s also a theory I’ve heard little about.

Games of Thrones: how the Wall was built, and it could be destroyed. Telegraph article online (journalist: Rebecca Hawkes)

I mean that wall is 700 feet tall and apparently over 300 miles long. Something like that doesn’t happen, without at least a little magic?!

It’s funny because I started to write this BEFORE I saw the last episode and know we now how they take down a wall like that…But let’s be honest…If they hadn’t of done it that way, how else would they have been able to do it? I was honestly hoping for more…It seemed too easy! Although I have seen some people say that it didn’t really happen and it was Bran seeing the possible future?!

I love a good conspiracy theory!

Have you got any? I would LOVE to hear them!
