My Mum and I were talking about this (my mum and I have some interesting random conversations). Someone that we both know posted a post on Facebook that said “Happy Easter”…but is it really?
Easter Friday, especially since it’s the day that they put Jesus on the cross? Hence, why we have delicious hot cross buns…Sorry, I can’t help it, I love hot cross buns.
We were talking about how it’s interesting how some people will say Happy Easter or Happy Anzac Day or how some get really offended by the term “Happy Holidays”. Usually the same people that say Happy Easter are the ones usually offended by Happy Holidays.
When do you think it’s appropriate to say “Happy…”?
Not sure why, but I feel like this totally random thought I had was relevant to the current situation. I’m not going to explain it, I’m just going to let you make your own interpretations.
Anyone else notice this too?
Misogynist* Check out that link >.<
(Although, as someone pointed out to me, that people who are looking for their natural parents. May not agree with this…You get the general idea though =P…This random thought came about when someone asked me if I missed my ex-friends and I explained why I didn’t…Realising they hadn’t really ever been there for me, pretty much ever. It’s not hard to miss someone who was never there for you to being with!)
I have seen some really gorgeous candles lately…I kid you not though, the candle itself is around $14…The postage…$70! I am NOT even kidding…$70! What is the packaging made out of…Gold? These candles were not even in glass, just a plastic container.
There is a market here I swear! Especially for Aussies! Most of the companies were in the US…I’ve always had a rule, unless special circumstance pertains…
Do not buy anything online where the postage is more than the item!
Does anyone else feel like we just need to restart with all the politicians? I know there are some good ones out there, but they are so few and far inbetween! Just get rid of them all and start again. Every time they do something good…They take 5 steps backwards again.
Land of Confusion – Daily Prompt
My life IS a land of confusion, I rarely feel like I fit in, whatever I do never seems right. It’s never good enough. My mind is a constant land of confusion, whenever I think I’ve gotten it, I haven’t. Sometimes I used to feel really let down and out of it, and now, as I’ve gotten older, it’s mattering too me less and less. Sometimes I look at what is happening in the world and the prioritises and I think “Am I the only one who thinks this is lame?”
I always used to say that I was born in the wrong age, the wrong era, the wrong decade. I feel like this more and more each day.
Burn Daily Post – One Word Prompt
I’m just going to go with this…
Let It Burn
Let those feelings burn,
Let them burn to a cinder,
till there is nothing but ash,
not even a light ember, threatening to burn you all over again.
Let them cool off,
Do nothing to relight the flame,
Grab tightly, let it burn,
Burn away all hopes,
Burn away all dreams,
Burn away all feelings,
BURN IT ALL!
I am going to start by saying I am not going to start “bashing” the parents, nor am I going to start bashing the Zoo and the keepers for the choices they made.
I will say this IS however a tragedy.
I’ve been thinking about this tragedy for the last couple of days instead of having a knee-jerk reaction or start talking about “Well, Gorilla’s do this”…I LOVE animals, even the really freaky ones…But we don’t know them, they do unusual and extraordinary things all the time. It’d be great to have them out in the wild, twenty four seven, but that’s not realistic, some Zoo’s have great breeding and conservation programs.
Yes, some Zoo’s are horrible, because lets face it, something run by human beings is not going to go 100% perfect all the time. Once we as humans can stop endangering animals then they can be safe running around where and when ever they want too. What are all these people who say Zoos should be shut down going to do with the animals if the Zoo’s are shut down? Are they going to take them in? I doubt it.
One of the things I do enjoy about “that time that nearly every single woman on this earth has” is that I get so wrapped in so much I come up with some many random thoughts. Here are a few that I’ve had today:
*Someone needs to come up with a new “couple Facebook profile picture” craze…Went through a friends list and every single couple on their list look like they were at the formal or something. Love is supposed to be crazy and fun! It’s supposed make you feel inspired, not formal and posed.
*Talking about “happy couple pictures”…Don’t ever judge a couple pictures by the profile picture they chose to share with you. Some of the best profile pictures I’ve ever had, or people just “loved of us” were taken after a MASSIVE horrible argument and it was their way of “shutting me up”.
*I am really over the cold…Like every time I go to work, or funerals or something like that. The weather has been beautiful and then I want to go out and have ‘fun’ its been wet, grey and cold. I am physically over it! Normally when I’m at home I try not to turn the heating and rug up, not today! All the heaters are on, because I just don’t care.
*Animals are cool, when you think people actually want Donald Trump as president, a lady not doing her job and is a homophone won’t be fired (when they are thousands of people looking for work and will happily do her job if she doesn’t want it), and the Australian Prime Minister wants to send out “security forces” to check people papers like were back in WWII…Animals are WAY cooler than us.
*What is with this whole “I’m not singling you out” after you are the only person that they’ve mentioned? Why can’t people just be adult and admit that your issue with you? “I’m not singling you out, even though you’re the only person I mentioned”.
*Having tattoos, swearing and drinking heavily does not make you “hardcore”. Being who you truly are, having the backbone to be honest with others and with yourself, taking responsibility for the pain you cause for others is “hardcore” to me.
