QUESTIONS:

  • Guns?   Are you pro or con?  Explain your point of view.

Oh wow, that is a … loaded … question so to speak! In theory I have no problem with guns. There’s that saying about how it’s not guns that kill, it’s the owner…Well, duh! In Australia we are doing pretty well when it comes to gun laws. People can still own guns, they just can’t own army type weapons, that can kill multiple people within a second. I don’t know anyone personally who owns a gun in Australia, well that I’m aware of anyway, but I know that you can. Just more like rifles and shot guns.

Some people say the same gun laws we have in Australia wont work in the US because the US is bigger than Australia, more population. Which may be true, but how is doing nothing working for them? The one thing I truly don’t understand about the US, why a lot of the 2A defenders, don’t want to try something…anything? It’s such a hard thing to wrap my head around. For example, the NRA tried to block a law that people who stalk and domestically abuse others, cannot own a gun. Why? They keep saying because it’s a misdemeanour, it’s not that serious. They WANT these stalkers and abusers to keep their guns because of “rights”. Why? I am sure in their heads they’re thinking “Well I’ve got a gun, I can just shoot them”…It’s not that simple, and if they shot them dead, they’d be charged with murder. Wouldn’t it just be better and make more sense to make sure stalkers/domestic abusers can’t have guns?

  • How would your country change if everyone, regardless of age, could vote?

Well that’s a lot of a question. Does this mean, should the terrible twos be able to vote? I know that this question is talked a lot about these days, especially with the #climatestrike and #marchforourlives kids. Then on the flip side of that you have the boys from Covington Catholic, would you really want boys like that voting? But then are those boys so different from adult Trump supporters?

  • What’s your cure for hiccups?

I don’t really have one to be honest. I kind of just keep letting it go and just hope that it goes away quickly.

  • What’s the coldest you’ve ever been?

I can’t remember an actual specific time when I’ve been the coldest I’ve ever been. It’s probably been any time though that I’ve hopped into bed when it’s been Winter. It is terrible when I first get into bed, I feel like the sheets are stabbing into my body,lol

Share Your World … Week 37

(I’m just warning you all, this ones a bit long!)

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewellery?

I don’t think that I have really ever owned a pet rock or jem that is Jewellery. I do remember once someone giving me a very pretty rock that was painted beautifully, but I never considered it to be a pet. I had a lot of plush toys, so I never really needed a rock pet, I guess?

What is your greatest strength or weakness?

Strength – A lot of people say that I am one of those people who is just there for others. I think it’s one of my strengths, sometimes I don’t even realise how weird it is how I’m there for people. One particular situation that stood out was after I broke up with an ex, there were all these girls who thought he was going to date them…And he didn’t, and they all came to me, trying to hurt me initially I guess, to get back at him? I managed to turn it around and ended up being their friend. I felt kind of bad for them really, he cheated on me with all these girls, but he also clearly made them feel like they were “the one”. He didn’t seem to really care how much he had led them on either. I helped them and I was over him before they were.

Weakness – As strong as I feel these days and I feel I can stand more on my own when it comes to my point of views and beliefs. I wish I just didn’t have so many “triggers”! There are some topics, especially on Facebook where I still get really wound up and get emotional with people and their comments, instead of just ignoring it. I recently unliked a page because of their refusal to even acknowledge, that men do in fact suffer from family and domestic violence.

What makes you feel grounded? 

Spending some times with my furbabies, they just want love really…Except for the cat, sometimes he just want food and for me to let him in and out of the house (we rent, so we can’t put in a cat flap). Other then them, I love having a shower and/or bath and listen to music that takes me away, like Enya, anything Celtic, anything “mythical”, if that is even a music genre,lol.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?

I think I would rather not eat cold food again, although a lot of salads are “cold”…Or are they more neutral? I love having hot food during Winter, it makes me feel warm on the inside, which then radiates through the rest of me. Whereas I don’t really feel like that with cold food, except for maybe ice blocks/ice cream.

Winter Drinks

We are now going through the middle of Winter and it is cold and I am not very good during the cold weather and I have been looking at some lovely hot, steamy drinks…So I am going to share some of them I am planning on making this Winter, I just have to figure out the amount that these recipes makes: What are some of your favourite Winter beverage recipes? any family favourites or classics?

Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Recipe

Mulled Wine *looks SO easy to make!*

Easy Nutella Dessert

That First Winter night

That first Winter night,
That first time you put on that familiar jumper you’ve had for years,
That first warm bubble bath, that you never want to come out of,
That first time you have to wrap the towel around to keep warm.

The first time you put on that heater
and wrap that warm blankie around you, falling asleep, warm on the couch,
The first warm cup of hot chocolate, warming all of your insides,
The first hot shower you have after running to get home in the rain, soaked through.

It’s what I’ll have to count on during these next few months…

Olaf and Summer!

In case you have been wondering, I am a Australian person, the good old “Down Under”. Today is the first day of Summer, although you wouldn’t know that with the grey clouds and the threat of a storm coming.

Feeling in a particular good mood today as it’s the first day of Summer, first day of Christmas and the last month of this pretty bad year,lol…So while I am putting up my Christmas Tree today, why don’t you all enjoy this song that I found…You might have heard of it ~.^
