World Endangered Species Day

…Is not actually today, but on Friday the 21st. However, I do feel that Endangered Species are sometimes forgotten, especially when humans are experiencing global issues, like global viruses. There are also different dates for National campaigns in your country, so look those up some time!

This may be the saddest article I’ve read so far…Mainly because it was written at the beginning of May 2021, and actually that before you even finish reading the article, some of the animals may have gone extinct already.

42 Most endangered Animal Species – Owlcation, May 3:2021 – Kelley Marks

I just wanted to also say that you don’t have to spend money to help endangered species either. It’s more about being aware. For example, Orangutans. Their habitats are being destroyed because the plants in their area, can create palm oil. Which is used in a LOT of products.

Every hour 300 football fields of precious remaining forest is being ploughed to the ground across South East Asia to make way for palm oil plantations. Palm oil is used in everything from snack foods to soaps.

Palm Oil – The Orangutan Project

It can be just as simple as being aware of what is in each of the products you’re buying, and then deciding whether or not if that product is worth it.

Oddball Questions:

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?

  1. What do we do that annoys you, that we do?
  2. Would be willingly to try different cat foods.
  3. 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…

Questions:

  •  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

‘Deep’ Question

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.

Questions:

Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

Lord Of The Rings Eating GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

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.

Questions:

When was the last time you tried something new?  How did that go for you?

I guess it was Gardening? I haven’t done anything that’s new, but I’ve never really done it before. I LOVE IT! It’s just been funny, because the first plants I bought. The ones that were supposed to live well, died, and the harder plants to grow, have lived and are doing well, lol. It’s been truly lovely though, gardening is therapeutic.

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

Oh gosh, so much! Oh!lol…My post yesterday “JB: I think we are living in anti-intellectual times, and that this is evident across the political spectrum. The quickness of social media allows for forms of vitriol that do not exactly support thoughtful debate. We need to cherish the longer forms.”

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

Well no one thinks I’m 36, probably middleish 20’s.

Lastly, I’ll be doing one “Halloween” themed question per week during October.  Those who don’t observe the holiday are welcome to answer or to ignore it as they wish.

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question:

Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?

No, and I am SO glad about that! I’m guessing this doesn’t mean animals, because then, yeah sure,lol. Fresh human body though, no.


GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)

Do you enjoy any seasonal traditions around this time of year?

vintageghost_orig

Well, I’m sort of always between the more American Halloween traditions, mainly with the candies and the dressing up. But also with the Celtic traditions, like honoring those who have passed on “beyond the veil” type thing. I know that these days, we shouldn’t appropriate traditions, but…I don’t even know if I honestly am!

Questions:

Where do you feel most at home?  Please be more specific than “at home, doh” please. It could be a room in your home, a person, a location…    

I wish I hadn’t said anything now!lol…However, I was thinking about this question a lot. I think that where I feel most at home, where ever my heart feels the safest. See, I have my anxiety attacks when I feel uncomfortable or unsafe. So when I don’t feel like I’m about to have a heart attack, I must feel safe there.

Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car?   

Well I’m scared of horses, and I’m still learning to drive. Riding a bike, would also help to get me healthier =D

What song would you sing on “Karoke Night” (if you were forced to do so)?    

I don’t really have a “song”. I just like to drink and then sing to anything. I do seem to sing to Bon Jovi at lot though. Not well, mind you,lol

University or life experience, which do you feel best prepares you for life?  

Probably life itself. While University is great if you want to become say a teacher, or a doctor, or part of a trade. How many times have we seen though, people with degrees or doctorates coming from say Harvard or Yale, just not really actually good with people.

Roger’s Magical, Mystical Questions

  1. Have you ever driven the wrong way on a one-way street? How did this come about?
    Just not concentrating, we actually were interstate and trying to figure out directions,lol
  2. As a kid, did you ever decide to run away? Did you have a plan? Take a pet? Sandwiches?
    The only time I remember running away, I went down the street a little bit. And sat next to a bush, just around the corner of the next street. I can’t remember what I was even upset about, but I remember sitting there for a while. Well, at the time it seemed like a while, it was probably more like 30 minutes,lol
  3. You suddenly found you have a hidden talent for playing a musical instrument. What musical instrument do you hope that accompanies your talent? Any particular song?
    I’m just going to post a YouTube video.

  4. Do you accessorize with jewelry? There was an opal necklace (cursed) and Slytherin’s locket (also cursed) in the Potter story. Have you had any heirloom jewelry passed down through the generations? Is it more ‘keepsake’ or do you wear it on occasion? (Hopefully, yours was not cursed?)
    I personally don’t have any heirloom jewellery. I am however, known for wearing huge hoop earrings. Since my fingers and hands are tiny, I don’t wear rings well. With the help of Lovisa though, I have managed to find a few cute rings for me too wear.
