I know it probably seems a little lazy, but I would love to hear about YOUR theories. Or are there any theories that you would like me to look into too?
The last couple of weeks, my brain has gone into such a fuzz. I even dropped a class this week from my studies, and transferred into something that seems a little more simpler, for the time being.
One of the theories that I guess I could write about myself, is with my new job. We look back in time, and are putting things for ye olde year and put them online. So I saw something today, I’m not sure how much that I can say, because of confidentiality. However, you know how in “modern” times, we read about the young girl whose been betrothed to a old man? Oh, it REALLY happened
The youngest girl who I saw, who would have been married off…Was only 13! Her “partner” was 19…But she was only 13 when she married! This is like in the 50’s! I just didn’t think this was happening then.
I found the biggest age gap so far…62 and 30 … I also found a age gap of 40 and 23 … The woman being 40! My little “woke” mind, haha!
Let’s get creative! …
What I would love to do with this blog post, is talk about some of the creative creativeness I’ve been doing lately, and I would love for you to share anything that you maybe up too as well!
I don’t really know how many of you read my blog posts on a continuous level. However, every now and then I write about what my plans are for the future, just recently (I believe) I started to write about how I like to write things down and put them out in the public, so I end up doing them.
What this was mainly referring to was myself starting to learn to draw, which I am. I even bought myself a little sketch book.
Clearly one of my newest things is too stream, which you can watch my previous videos at my channel: Lady Lolsy – Twitch tv … Feel free to judge and critique, luckily I am really new so no huge views yet. I got my partner to watch and for some reason you can’t see my face when I play my games. Which at the moment is Sims 4.
I am also in the middle of making my cat a little house for outside, maybe for something inside too. My partner bought a new huge fancy tv, and the box is huge. While I have not much to do, I can do even more creative things.
I’m also doing my pen pals still. I’ll be trying to write them up and post them over the weekend.
So, it’s about half way through the year and a little later in the day I write about what I have learnt during this month of Pride. What I would like to hear about though, we are pretty much through at least half way through the year (can you believe it!) Have you learnt anything during this year, so far? And if you have, would you like to share what that is?
It can be about yourself, it can be about the world. It can be something that you think is teachable. For myself, I’ve learnt to actually read someone’s profile before I respond to them on social media. I have learnt, you kind of get a idea of where that person is coming from.
A lot of the times, they are just a idiot, repeating the same bigotry mantras’. But at least I learnt that before getting into a endless “debate” of them being in bad faith. It has actually saved me a lot of time, and I’ve saved a lot of words, time and mental health.
This isn’t going to become a regular blog post. One of the reasons I love blogging is because of the advice, the information that I learn about every single day. What I would love to know about, how many of you have “old wives tales”, or general advice that you think would be helpful?
Can be anything:
A cold/flu remedy
Help with gut issues?
How to block a writers block?
Sage Advice, that works for you.
After my post “Mental Health Check List” I’m going too take your suggestions on board and do them! I didn’t honestly think to myself what I’d do if anyone made any good suggestions, but you all did! Haha
Tomorrow/When I get up I’m getting up and then I am going to write that to do list, and include a Spiritual Checklist as well! I think that sounds like a fantastic idea. Thank you very much for sharing and giving me ideas. My idea is to do a to do list, then after I’ve done it. Too expand it to then include times and dates. Basically which tasks need to go in order of importance.
Is cereal soup? Why or why not?
Sometimes it turns into soup, lol. Let’s get fancy and call it breakfast soup!
What are some interesting ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”?
What I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
What was your favorite toy growing up?
I had a few, I’ve held onto a few as well, making sure that I keep them in relatively good condition. One though, that really stands her, and I still have her. I think she’s called either Brittany or Britney, she’s a “life size” doll and she came with me everywhere! Unfortunately, every time I put in Brittany or Britney life size doll, it’s only ever Britney Spears doll. My brother, when he started to learned how to sow, turned her Goth! Haha! If you look at life size Barbie’s from the early 90’s, that’s pretty much how she looked, but she wasn’t a Barbie. I called her my sister, and we went everywhere together.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! My Mum sent me her picture!
If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask?
- What do we do that annoys you, that we do?
- Would be willingly to try different cat foods.
- Do you like me? lol

What’s one simple thing society at large could do to improve our world?
Honestly? Just take the time to actually shut up and LISTEN…
- Do you like or dislike surprises? Why or why not?
Depends on the surprise to be honest. My partner remembering a figurine that I wanted on my birthday, when I had forgotten. I wanted it around Christmas, but it definitely wasn’t going to come out then. My partners mother showing up unannounced every time she’s in town, not such a nice surprise. She’s lovely, don’t get me wrong. But the amount of times we’ve been going out somewhere and we’ve had to cancel. She doesn’t send a text, she just rocks up. She lives three hours away, so it’s not like she’s popping in all the time. Last time I knew she was going to be around, I nearly bought extra food for her, but she never ended up staying, lol. The problem is we don’t know when she’s coming down either, she doesn’t actually tell anyone either way.
- What’s your favorite zoo animal?
It’ll always be the Lion/Lionesess. Like others though, I have hate/love relationships with Zoos. Some zoos out there are absolutely shocking, and the animals would actually have a better chance being free than in those places. Some Zoo’s though do actually really good work with conservation. During the up coming Christmas/Summer holidays, were planning on going to Monarto Zoo. Where you … the human … go into the cage while the Lions walk over you, well not literally on you of course. They even have a baby rhino you can “meet”, but I think that ends before we plan on going.
- What three things do you think of the most each day?
At the moment, when will this pain sciatica end. Will it ever go away.
Okay, don’t eat far too much today. You’re doing great and you’re stomach hasn’t been in pain for a month now…Keep going!
Underwear…Yes or Nay, lol
When, if ever, is taking a human life justified?
As others have said, I have no problem with euthanasia for people. After watching my Grandfather die of MRSA getting into his lungs. I don’t know how one couldn’t. We do it for our pets, because they’re in pain. Why we don’t for humans, who are terminal in pain and tired of fighting. Why we don’t, I don’t know. Saying that, I couldn’t actually do it myself.
Is it bad as well, that when I hear prolific child molesters getting killed in jail. I don’t feel bad. I also have no idea how I’d be if I saw someone trying to kill a child, or my someone I care about. I think, in the moment, I could.

Do small miracles exist?
Oh absolutely! You don’t have to look hard to find them either.
Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
I love ALL my meals. There are some days where I look more forward to one more than the other. Like Christmas morning, even though we have a huge lunch. We have a really yummy breakfast, it changes from year to year. But we always have a nice breakfast, before we head off to my Aunts for the big lunch. No wonder, I always fall asleep, lol.
Who do you admire most in the world?
I probably admire my Great Grandfather the most. He passed when I was about 2/3 years old. Too this day though, he still influences me. Every now and then I find something that he was interested in, that I too am interested in. He loved taking his daughter (my Gran) to plays, loved Shakespeare and he loved the Ancient Greeks. Before he passed, he was trying to learn Greek, to travel and see the sites. We found a book full of scribblings of his. That was only in my 20’s that we found that.
With the obvious restrictions in place, what do you regret not doing in the last year?
Learning how to draw earlier. I’m starting to get that feeling that I’ve wasted a lot of the year. It’s been hard to motivate myself. I’ll have days where I’ll start something, but then, there’s always that excuse to stop.
GRATITUDE SECTION: (Optional)
Feel free to share something you’re grateful for.
You…My sane blogging community!
I’m doing a little bit of a twist on the Share Your World, meaning when it’s usually about sharing some questions that the beautiful Melanie (and sometimes Roy) share with us. What am I going to share with you, is what I like to do to celebrate the more “Americanised” Halloween.
Favourite Halloween Films:
I’m honestly, not into the scary films, like your very scary, violent films … Real life is scary enough after all.
- Nightmare Before Christmas
- All The Addams Family
- The Mummy
- Phantom of the Opera
- Sleepy Hollow
- Young Frankenstein
- Dracula (Keanu Reeves, Ryder and Oldman).
Favourite Halloween Foods/Treats:
- Candy Corn…I think it’s delicious!
- I love making chocolate mousse and then putting gummy worms through it.
- I haven’t yet, but I do want too make mead!
- I do like toffee apples, but I can never get through it all.
- In the past, I have made popcorn with white icing, and candy corn. You have to use either salted popcorn or buttered, for a really good flavour. Nothing plain on Halloween! The white icing sticks the candy corn to the popcorn.
- I don’t know why, but I really love Oreos on Halloween.
- Smores…I’ve seen a recipes call them Ghost Smores, they just put little eyes on the peak.
- Hot Chocolate … with the Marshmallow!
Favourite Halloween Music:
- What is this – Nightmare Before Christmas
- Lullaby – Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride.
- All the songs from Phantom of the Opera
Favourite Halloween Tales:
