Unpopular Opinion #1

I think for the new year, I am going to start post topics, but what I consider to be a “unpopular opinion”. Now it may be that some of you may agree with me. Some may not at all. It just that my opinion, sometimes, seems to be opposite of popular opinion. Just remember, it’s an opinion.

So here we go, with my first ever “unpopular opinion” on WordPress.

I think Michael Jackson has abused children, not all the ones coming out, but definitely a couple of them. Even if he didn’t molest them, I believe that he still abused all the children anyway.  For one big reason, it is because a grown adult should never ever use children to capture their childhood. It is not up too children to help an adult.

I Love Lions <3

I always feel insulted on behalf of Lion when a Trump supporter posts a picture of  a Lion with Trump with that “A lion doesn’t lose sleep over the opinions of Sheep” This is such an insult to #Lions#Trump doesn’t sleep, he’s admitted it himself. Probably because he’s too busy checking his twitter account for “Nervous Nancy” Or “Pencil Neck” Schiff. They are “right”, a Lion doesn’t lose sleep over a sheep’s opinions…Lions sleep pretty much all the time, but Trump doesn’t sleep.

Lions sleep a lot…They also only “fight” when they have too…They don’t going looking for a fight. Can you imagine such an amazing animal being compared to Trump?  Trump wouldn’t be able to be brave like a Lion anyway.

Also, when Lions have to be brave, they are THERE! They don’t go “Nope, not showing up” also unlike Trump. Who has taken responsibility for none of his actions. Has shown up for not a single hearing. LIONS SHOW UP.

The Vatican Princess

I actually had a few people who seemed to be interested in this particular book. So I have finally sat down and wrote about this book. It’s been great to be able about this book in more detail.

The Vatican Princess: A Novel of Lucrezia Borgia:By C.W.Gortner

the vatican princess

*I just want to start this review off by writing that is purely based on my personal opinion. I have not been paid by anyone or any company to write this*

Too this day in modern History, Lucrezia Borgia, is one of the world’s most famous villainesses. Whether or not that’s completely justified, we will probably never be able to prove. Accused on incest, murder and poison vixen, luring men to their deaths. But what she just an unwilling pawn in her families games?

The biggest reason that I enjoyed this book was because, in the beginning at least. I really enjoyed the way that Gortner wrote Lucrezia, I absolutely believe that she was sweet and innocent. Someone who just wanted to love her family and their environment and just to basically be left alone. I felt like Gortner did Lucrezia Borgia a lot of justice with her character. She is written like a complete sweetheart. In other shows and books I’ve read of Lucrezia, they have written and given into the Myth of Miss Lucrezia Borgia.

Even with her rumoured romantic relationship with her brother, Cesare. A lot of other shows and books write like she enjoyed the incestuous relationship. Whereas with this book it’s written like Lucrezia, although not 100% without feelings, she has issues with it. This becomes even more apparent after Lucrezia begins to realise that Cesare is probably more obsessed with her, rather than in love with her. She does really her adore and treasure her husband in this book, Alfonso of Aragon. Which is probably a reason behind his murder by her brother.

This is where my happy part of the review ends.

As soon as the book gets to about halfway through, it just seems to get real dark really quickly and seems to be purely for shock value. Rather than based on anything factual, and it really disturbed me. I think because I have a basic understanding of what the Borgia’s did. There was just one part that sincerely shocked me and then it put me off of the rest of the book.

I don’t mind a shock in a book, when it’s necessary, but I felt like the shock in this book was completely unnecessary. There was no proof of what was written even took place. Which I get to some extent that a lot on the Borgias are based on other people’s perspective, rather than actual fact. But I feel like, at least try. Don’t just write something completely horrible and shocking, just for the sake of it. Especially even when no one has heard this “myth” before.

100%…All the time, every time.

This may be a very unpopular opinion. I don’t think Barr should release the report unless it’s 100%  “out there” Otherwise you’re just going to have a lot of “I’ve been totally exonerated” even though that’s not what was said. It might be just myself, but this is not a group of people who are all “The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God” They are more like “The truth isn’t the truth” people.

QUESTIONS

Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures?

I have few…Don’t judge me! The world is a tough place! One is to just to sit and play “The Sims” for a couple of hours, I just cannot play any games for more than a couple of hours. Sometimes, if I’m alone I will watch…Can’t believe I’m going to admit this…Barbie:Life in the Dreamhouse…it’s hilarious! Don’t judge me till you’ve watched it. Ken and Puppies = funniest. I love tuna mornay and mac’n’cheese, my partner doesn’t love them as much as I do.

What Is The Worst Pick Up Line You Ever Heard?  

I LOVE huge hoop earrings, it might be a “thing” because I’m so small. One guy came up to me though and said … “Do Angels hang from those earrings?”.

What Slang Or Trend Makes You Feel Old?

I didn’t understand the whole “planking” thing…That was just…weird,lol

What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song?

Don’t hate me…but I think that pretty much any song by “Fifth Harmony” was always over-rated. Now, it’s just my personal opinion, even now since they’ve split and are doing solo careers. Most of their songs could be done by anyone. Even Camila’s “Havana”, I love it, but it could be done by anyone.

Instead of a Tender Mercies question, here’s a philosophical one instead:

The biggest threat to the US is not Trump

Just let me write what I’m going to write right now. This is an entirely opinion blog post.

The biggest threat to the US right now, is not Trump. It’s his enablers. We all know that Trump is a liar, misogynist, racist, bigoted bastard. We’ve all known this for literally years.

The biggest problem isn’t Trump, it’s his enablers…Including the “reporters” who refuse to actually question…Anything.

Like how the Democrats jumped all over Ilhan, over her not actual anti-semantic comments…But yet, where is the outrage from them when Trump actually calls them anti-Jewish? You know the POTUS who called the white supremacy rallies “fine people” who actually said “Jews will not replace us”

When McConnell was asked “Why hasn’t this bill come to the Senate”, his answer “I chose what we vote on” he laughed, they laughed…WT ACTUAL F! WHY WERE THEY LAUGHING??? I kept waiting for just one of them to say something. I mean seriously, get out of the way, I can be a journalist, since they refuse to do their jobs.

Trump called Doctors, Nurses and Hospitals killer of babies…Where was the outrage? other than the liberal supporters? I am going to swear here:

WHERE’S THE FUCKING OUTRAGE!

WHY IN ALL GOD GREEN GRACE ARE THEY LAUGHING WITH THEM??? IT WASN’T EVEN FUNNY!!!

Didn’t you know? I’m a comedian now! =D

“You’re not interesting just because the alt-right like you now.”

Its not even a joke, it’s a statement. How is it a joke? It’s just not a joke,lol… An opinion is not a joke. It’s lazy. He had all that time and that’s what he did? Write down some opinions?

What’s the biggest screw up in the kitchen that you were responsible for?

Well people who know me would make fun of me just being in the kitchen. I am just not a cooker at all. Mainly though because no one ever let me cook really. If I tried people would get frustrated with me because I was slow, but that was because no one would let me cook. At least I didn’t burn two minute noodles! The biggest screw up in the kitchen I’ve “done” is breaking the bin…But I knew it was going to happen, because it was already over filled and when that happens the lid gets stuck. Since we had people over Mum decided to get everyone to look at me and say “Shows you how often Lauren takes the bin out”. It was so awkward.

What, in your opinion, makes people believe absurd conspiracy theories?

I think it’s both a lack of life experience and not getting out enough and someones upbringing. As much as I despise generalisations, they are there for a reason.


In 40 years what will people be nostalgic for?

I think we’ll be nostalgic for what we are nostalgic for now. The circle keeps spinning. They have just recently been bringing back all my old childhood toys. It’s been weird!lol

Is a hot dog a sandwich?  

I think so. It’s got bread, in a roll form and it had a filling.

What wonderful thing happened to you this week that you’d like to share?  It can be a gratitude moment or something that just made you feel very happy at the time or made you laugh.

I have had a really good week. I was told that some of my ex friends were talking shizzle about me on their Facebook pages and I didn’t care. I expected it, they’ve been doing this since High School, they still stalk their ex’s pages. It was though the first time I realised how sad they are, they are supposed to be going through the happiest time of their lives right now…and they’re talking about me? Making other people feel weird and uncomfortable, showing who they truly are.

The best lessons in life, are often the hardest!

With any relationship in life (whether that be romantic, friendly and family) sometimes the worse situations we go through with them, are the lessons in life that are the hardest to learn.

Throughout my life (and I am sure others as well) I have learnt the most about myself and others, through my worse situations. Over the years this has meant that I have learnt every single time from it.

It’s been coming up a lot about how I’ve been since I lost my “friends”…I was worried myself for a bit there because I was really happy to be honest,lol…Maybe I am this terrible human being…Then I started to realise, no, it’s because life before this has taught me so much and when I started to realise how little they brought to my life…because it’s was always about them…Not anybody else…That’s when I forgave myself for not being sadder.

It was interesting because my partner said to me that if they came back on their hands and knees begging for my forgiveness and I said “No…I’ve already forgiven them, but I will never be friends with any of those three ever again”.

I had a situation a few years ago where these two girls were constantly cyber bullying me and it got to the point where I deactivated my account. I then made a new Myspace (that’s how old this story is!) and I did not put these girls back…for more than obvious reasons and I lost a LOT of “friends” because of that. I was competently gobsmacked by that, but it also proved who truly did care and who never did. All those who had unfriended me never had a conversation with me before they did it. It became very apparent to me that these people clearly put certain parts of their anatomy over actual friendships.

The funniest part I found about that situation is that over the years they’ve stopped speaking with each other, but then came back together and stopped speaking again,lol…Then one of them sent me a friends request on Facebook, no message, nothing, no apology…So I declined,lol

The biggest reason I don’t miss them is because they never brought ANYTHING to my life, it was always about them! You can’t miss what was never there!
