Why Canadians Are So Calm.

igb1

Canadians have been hiding a big secret for a long time. We are very private people. Very calm. Very polite. We don't just blab our secrets. 

igb2

While the rest of the world is stressing over every sign of puberty, acne, parts that grow ... or don't, new body hair etc etc ... we remain calm.  Our children transition without nary a whimper or a whine.  Without puberty to run your life amuck ... everything else is like a zen retreat ... except for the Calgary Stampede of course ... we are encouraged to be unzenlike and to run amuck.

How do we do it, you ask?

I am going to tell you, but only because I am turning into part Australian and they blab everything. 

Every winter we Canadians, rug up our kids in a bazillion layers with lots of down filled everything. Mainly we can see their eyes and they usually have a little hole for their nose or their mouth ... depending on which they most need to breathe from.

Winter lasts a long time in Canada.

Come spring we unrug them and whoa ... they are done ... cooked, grown, transformed, changed, stud muffined, babeliciouseded. It is a really nice surprise for some of them as they ready for the week of being able to head to the beach in their newly filled out bathing suits.

You see, you can't get hysterical over what you don't see. It is the same effect you have when there is a monster in your room at night and you close your eyes so you can't see the monster and he can't see you ...  only without the eyes or the monster and with more goose down and extra zippers.

igb3

I know people have read that the long cold dark winters are for hibernating and sleeping ... but when you really think about it ...

...hormones can't read.

Second Life Prepares You For The Real World.

smb1



I thank Second Life for helping me to understand that virtual reality is not the only place where people can role play.


smb2

Like when you have people who TELL you about how humble they were, or shocked, or angry and they basically do not change the tone of their voice at all but they describe it for you in complete detail like they are giving you character directions for a play. It is soooo awesome.

Now I don't have to waste energy anymore pretending to be shocked when I get caught with my hand in the cookie jar ... I can just describe it all. While I distract them with my fabulous language skills ... I can probably slip a couple of cookies out. I mean if the story is good enough they should be weeping.

Weeping people are easily fooled.

Soap Operas have known this for years. How do you think they switch the baby born last week for a 13 year old without anyone realizing? You guessed it ... weeeping scenes.

And mean girls can threaten just by describing what they will do and then what you will be doing when they are done doing to you what needs to be done. 

That shit is scary.

smb3

I am going to role play with hubby tonight. We can just lay there in the dark and tell each other what is happening. It seems to work for so many people in here. I hate to miss out on anything.

Don't worry ... I am not stupid.  I have the pose balls ready just in case.

Who Is In Charge?

fiw2


I get really frustrated at some of the stupid questions you get asked on those legal forms. It's bad enough that they have to ask some of those questions but it is even worse that they have decided to save money by cutting the budget for ink. Hence we are often left with mere intitials to try and figure out what the hell they are talking about.

fiw1

They always want to know SEX? And the choices for answering are not "Y" or "N" ... they give you "M" or "F" .... I assume that means "must I?" or "frequently".

And if you are at the airport, they actually have a machine to see you with all your clothes off BEFORE they decide whether they want to feel you up or not. They are pretty picky about it too and frankly I have no idea what they saw in that woman they chose over me.  I guess there is no accounting for some people's taste. 

Then they get all officious on you and make you declare that you told the truth ... like they are going to verify if you are "frequent" or not? Good luck with that. What if half of their partners were drunk at the time and couldn't even remember their own name? People today don't make notes of their frequents you know.

These people have no idea what the heck they are doing anyway ... what kind of an idiot has to ask over and over who to notify in case of an emergency??

Weighing in On Dating and Marriage in SL ... Because it is MY Blog and I Can.

dot1

I thought when we grow up we are supposed to mature and be better able to handle things. All the manuals say this.  Dr. Phil has said this.  I know people watch Dr. Phil.  All the Disney movies show little cute animals growing up and moving on to more adult ideals.  Those Brady Bunch Kids grew up.  How come no-one is applying the valuable television lessons to real life anymore? 

dot2

Why can't people date and be married in Second Life even if they are married or dating in real life?

Why does everyone care?

Why does everyone involve themselves in it?  (you can imagine a ticking clock here if you want ... just like on 60 Minutes)

I mean when I was 8, I was dating Victor Rogerson in real life. It was very serious.  We were shopping in the Sears Catalogue for China Patterns.  Meanwhile I had a Barbie Doll who was dating and/or married to "Ken" numerous times. In fact she was also dating and married to "Dustin" who looked liked Ken but was his much nicer brother the Airline Pilot . . . as well as Gi-Joe . . .  and Bob the Sock Monkey.

I didn't catch any grief from Victor about me cheating on him. He was able to discern the differnce between me and Barbie. I mean seriously ... like I am responsible for Barbie and her alleycat ways? PFFFT. Neither did all my girlfriends, or relatives, or the Minister of my Church start in on me about morals and what I should or shouldn't be doing.

It was a kinder, gentler time when people were allowed to play with their Barbies and dream a dream ...

What happened?  Now everyone has this big list of rules about what is cheating and what is allowed and why are you dating the dude they wanna date when you already have a boyfriend/husband/sock monkey... it has gotten OUT OF HAND!!!

If an 8 year old boy who had freckles and who grew up to be an actual Sock Monkey can get it ... why can't the adults???

Some of us just wanna play Barbie ... with Bob the Sock Monkey ...

Barbie is not me.  She is a doll.  I know this on SO many levels ... there are so many little constant reminders that I am not her, everytime I play with her .... one of the biggest being ...


dot3



... I cannot bend my body that way ....


oh and ... Bob the Sock Monkey has never given real life me the time of day ....

I Am Who I Am ... I Think.

wic2

People in Australia like to leave their magazines in your mail box in a bag with a note that they are coming back around on such and such a date and you should either put your order out for them to pick up or return the catalogue to them.

wic1

Except that I am going away and will not be back to put it out for them.

So I arrive home and they show up at the door all in a snit, this is their third time back, and where is their freaking magazine? I told them I was impressed with their ability to percieve that I was not ordering anything because wow, with that kind of tone, if I had been, I wouldn't be. So I smiled and asked them to wait one moment and I came back to the door and handed them a bag of laundry. They asked me what it was and I told them it was our drycleaning and would they mind dropping it in for us on Thursday?

They did mind apparantly BUT without another word spoken we came to an agreement.

wic3
 
 
They didn't ask me to take care of their catalogues anymore and I took care of my own drycleaning. I sort of thought that was the way it was in the beginning but I do appreciate them bringing to my attention the misunderstanding so that we could clear it up.
 
Evidently the Avon lady must be a friend of theirs because she suddenly stopped dropping off her catalogues as well.
 
Sometimes life is so serendipitous that I think I should change my name to Dipi ... but then I think No ... mom already has difficulty remembering who I am. I have to show her my drivers license everytime I see her.

The Academy Awards Ruined My Life.

Blog Post:


Jennifer Lawrence fell going to collect her oscar.


Blog Post:


While I appreciate that it made her seem much more real ... I think actors should be under contract to keep up the illusions they create. Seriously, I am never going to be able to watch the Hunger Games again and believe that she can shoot an arrow that well.

Maybe actors just CAN'T walk with clothes on and their being half naked all the time has nothing to do with the decline of all we hold morally decent.

I was also deeply disturbed when "Harry Potter" showed up and had a sexy accent and no longer looked like a boy. The announcer didn't even recognize him, he kept calling him "Daniel." Then Harry was all excited about meeting Dustin Hoffman. Harry Potter shouldn't know or care about anything regarding Dustin Hoffman.  They live in alternate realities.

My life has been forever altered because of the Academy Awards.

They can't even agree on who wore the crappiest dress. One "expert" says it is this one and then another "expert" names that same dress as the best. Maybe they should not be drinking before the judging starts.

Blog Post:

And if you are going to lecture me that everyone has their own tastes then all hell is going to break loose and we are going to have to allow people in here to wear whatever they want and stop rounding up the mob to hunt them down because they don't do it "right."

Shut-up!!

My Little Birdies.

bbg1

I love all the little birds that are around my window every day.

bbg2

They make me feel all Cinderella like and I sometimes get dressed up, kick off one glass slipper and talk to the broom like it might one day turn into some kind of a coachman or something.

One of the little birds came to the window yesterday and I was close enough to reach out and touch it but we just kind of sang to one another for about an hour ... I sing awesome bird let me tell you.

I have no idea what I was saying to him but it seemed to provide him a great deal of comfort.

I think I may have saved his marriage or something.

bbg3
 

Now the neighbour obviously does not share my passion. They never dress up and all the time I was whistling away in bird speak they just kept yelling "Shut the &!!;*^%!! up already." But I was deep into my fantasy mode and when I am there I don't have neighbours because Cinderella only had ugly stepsisters and little animals and birdies that love her.

I love cold medicine ...

Thanks For the Memos!

1

Dear Designer;

Thank you so much for your notification about your achievement in reaching a huge number of followers/having an anniversary/having a sale/going out of business/letting us know that your cat just had kittens. (please circle your own situation and take a moment to really enjoy your achievement and have some cake)

2

I think it is great to share these precious moments with your customers, even though I am not a big fan of cats, truly I do.

I even understand a second and third reminder, after all we are a global community with many time zones and people have lots of groups and messages and you hate to have anyone miss out.

3

However after the 232nd reminder, you can probably rest your send finger just a tad. We all got the notice and if we have not shown up yet, you can probably surmise we are not coming and in fact ... you can also probably understand that by now ... we hate your cat ...

. . . and your kittens.

I have a couple of fingers too. One for gesturing and the other one for deleting my membership.

You have a nice day now.

Love Blissy.

P.S. oh and again ... congratulations!

(and yes, I may have exaggerated a tad ... there were probably only 222 notices ... that was about the time I went cross-eyed ...)

The Pout.

btl1

What is with all these young girls and women taking endless pics of themselves to post on facebook etc?

btl2

Seriously, if it is not bad enough that they cannot go into the bathroom without their freaking phone, now we have to have pics of the whole ordeal? Seriously if I happen to call you and you are "indisposed" PULLLLEASE do not feel the need to answer the call.

Believe it or not, back in the day, people used to use phones for legitimate NEEDS and they acutally used to ignore the phone if they were too busy to talk to someone. It was like talk to the hand, without the visuals. And then we substituted answering machines for that purpose. People can leave a message, they do not need to share every intimate detail of your life. NO-ONE matters that much ... trust me. Flush the toilet and get on with your day!

But as for the pics??? Have you noticed that the big bathroom mirror is IN the bathroom? Have you noticed that there is a door to the bathroom and it most likely locks? Have you noticed that normally when you go to the bathroom in your house, you do not have a whole entourage in there with you? I mean the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has other things to do ... seriously.

So you go ahead and do all those little faces at yourself ... the "I am done my make-up, how freaking cute am I" shuffle is meant to be done in private, to convince yourself, to bolster your courage ... to open the door and go out and wow the world with your awesomeness. If God had ever intended for you to capture those moments to put on facebook, he would have made mirrors with automatic, social networked cameras already in them.

But he didn't.

The mirror stuff is private.

We don't wanna see it.

btl3

Someone has to be the bigger person here and set the example.  Having "followers" is a big responsibility.

Yup I was Awesome.

cbs1


I felt terrific this morning. T-Rrrrific. I like to share great moments of awesomeness with hubby. I figure you should always leave "customers" with the sense they got more than they asked for. It is called customer service and I rock it.

cbs2

I appeared at the doorway to his office and announced, "I feel tall and powerful!!"

He was checking the golf scores. I cleared my throat and waved at him trying to get his attention and then put my hands back on my hips. I could feel the power beaming from me all over the room.

He looked up at me with a question on his face. It was with a slight condescending tone ... right around the eyes, and if it had a voice it would have sounded like, "so?"

"Want me to leap a tall building in a single bound?"

His mouth did not move but his face did more talking, ... his nose kind of sniffed and I think it said something along the lines of "Not particularly."

Lot's of Silence.

Awkward.

"OK, I won't ... I mean I can see that you are busy and all ... but just so you know ... I could ..."

He just sat there leaning back in his chair looking at me, his finger on his mouse ...

"Ok, well you know I have things to do too.  Are you done looking at my awesomeness, because I want to make sure you get your fill, I don't like to short change you or anything ... I can give you the side view ..."

More staring.

"Alright then, anything you would like me to do before I go? This awesomeness is not going to last all day you know ... the universe simply would not be able to contain it."

He turned and clicked to the next page on his golf scores and said simply ... "Would be nice if you would put some clothes on."

Gum Nuts, Tattoos and Grandchildren.

sbe1a

This morning I was weeping over gum nut pods, tattos and grandchildren.

 I am not 100% sure but I am thinking this may be evidence that the world is about to end, an alien attack is imminent, or perhaps an eclipse of the moon is about to take place.

I am sure that some ancient tribe somewhere, foresaw and foretold about me and today and it has incredible relevance for humanity.

sbe2a



It all makes perfect sense to me. We got our grandkids the Australian Children's collection for Snugglepot and Cuddlepie . . . probably the cutest darn little couple of characters ...  and well, the children love the book.

Then their mom got a couple of tattoos to memorialize the children and childhood and our connection to them and then my hubby brought home the cutest darn gumnuts - two of them on one little branch - and is going to plant a tree in our yard because of this whole intergenerational, intercontinental love story. And I got looking at the nuts and the outside has the appearance of this sort of green and brown damask wallpaper and the texture is just awesome and the form ... it is just beautiful . . .  

So I was a puddle of tears.

sbe3a

I don't know why anyone ever let me have hormones to take care of . . .  I clearly have no idea what to do with them ....

Tumbleweeds.

dts1

On the prairies tumbleweeds are not just some random weed ... that tumbles .... around ... in the wind ...

dts2

Tumbleweeds are friends that blow in, whenever you are down and think no-one loves you and think there is no-one to talk to. I had a tumbleweed friend. I called him "Fluffy."

We were extremely close, shared everything ... he got me through some of the worst times of my life and then I went and ruined it all.

 I didn't mean to.

I invited him to come in the house to watch Gilligan's Island with me and everything was going great. I had milk and cookies and a chaperone for both of us and showed him in to where he could sit .... and then I heard him scream ....

dts3

How was I supposed to know that wreath was made out of his long lost brother?   I think seeing him bent in that awkward shape with all those roses and bows woven through his body was pretty horrific.  I know I felt that way when I first saw the wreath and I wasn't even related to it.

Since then I have taken a lot of courses on wreath and tumbleweed sensitivity ...  I tried to find "Fluffy," but I never saw him again.

Some of the other tumbleweeds said they heard he just spent his life drifing along, singing a lonely song, under a prairie moon, pledging his love to the ground ....lonely but free ...

...drifting along like a tumbling tumbleweed ....

I miss him.

He got me you know?

He really really got me....

Diamond Style Alexys.

Diamond Style Alexys 2

My hubby is hanging around the house again ... it is raining and there is no golfing allowed otherwise he would be out there any way.

We are talking about a man who had to go out walking when it was like 57 below with the wind chill factor in Canada - just so he could see what it was like. That was right after he heard the newsman say, "Police are asking everyone to stay in doors and keep warm, exposed flesh will freeze in about half a nano-second." I think "you shouldn't do that" is like waving a red flag in front of a charging bull or something for Aussie men ... not sure ...

Anyway the police brought him home. They found him walking and pulled over and shone their flashlights at him and just said one word that basically summed it all up for everyone's understanding .... "Australian?"

I got a lecture about not keeping better track of him.

Diamond Style Alexys 1

But here in Australia he is good to go. They don't send police out to collect idiots here ...


I think that is because the police are most likely golfing with them in the monsoon ....

Decisions.

PSL2b

Remember when you were a little girls and you got a new fairy princess colouring book with a bigbox of new crayons and you had to try and figure out which fairy to colour first? I mean do you colour the flower fairy, the mermaid princess fairy or the fairy that sparkles first?

  psl1b

What crayon do you use? The powder blue, the lilting lilac or the ballet pink? And then you would skip from page to page, no wanting to miss anything, colouring a little here, a little there .... doing the bow on this dress, the little fishies in that one, the cute little bird ...

I used to give myself such a headache I would have to get my blankie and have a nap ...

I had the same problem with those lifesaver "books" we used to get for Christmas. Which do you eat first? The ones you like the most? The ones you like the least? And then you would worry so much about someone else eating them that you would lick them all, trying to mark them and that would just leave you with a big sticky mess of "o's" that you needed an ice pick to chip apart. Who knew human saliva, sugar, and butterscotch is better than super glue???

I mean don't judge me ... licking pieces of cake on the pastry plate pretty much means they are yours and you can eat at your leisure.

I thought I had outgrown all that ... attended enough assertiveness training seminars, graduated from training bra to the real deal, wearing my big girl pants ... and then they came up with Pinterest and I am 5 years old with a fairy princess colouring book all over again.

I start looking and suddenly I want to crochet furniture and the next minute I am wanting to bake wedding cakes ... they make everything sound so easy and so exciting and they have such pretty pictures.

  PSL3b

I can't tell you what a mess I have made of my computer ...  licking the screen like that ....

Stating the Obvious.

ida1

I was a child of stating the obvious ... even after I had been repeatedly punished and warned that no-one wants to hear it and people do not like obvious girls.  (if you could get one of the older women in the office to hold a wooden spoon and sternly shake it at the rest of you while you read that last line ... it would be perfect)

We were having a conversation around the Sunday dinner table with relatives about a new baby, the colour of hair, and who the baby resembled or took after.  We discussed almost every colour of hair and which ancient relative was responsible for it and how it all filtered down into the masses.  Someone said that one of the brothers of the baby had a touch of red in his hair, like Grandpa.

My eyes darted from the speaker to my grandfather, confused beyond belief, and my mouth dropped open.  I double checked before I insisted they were wrong because Grandpa clearly had PINK hair.

He was bald.

(everyone should gasp and the stern lady with the wooden spoon should make her eyes go slitty)

I just would like to say the technically I was part of the "we" as in "we were discussing" and that if the adults intend "we" to exclude the shorter and less advanced in age, they should perhaps have served us our dinner in front of the TV where we wouldn't be distracted by the lies they like to tell each other ....

Non-Complete.

lcl3

Sometimes you have these awesome things happen that make you actually want to go back to a period in your life and redo it armed with your new knowledge. This was one of those days.

I wanna go back to 4-H Clothing Club and do THESE pants. I mean after I sewed my pants, unpicked them because they did not fit and resewed and unpicked and resewed and unpicked ... well you can only unpick so many times before there are so many holes that whole chunks of material falls away.

AND the tops never fit and were all falling off the shoulder.  I didn't even try to make my outfit look like this ... it just happened.   I should have just gone with it and claimed visions and foresight and fashion blah blah blah ...

It may not have worked though because I think I am missing the snot gene that allows you to suck in your nostrils until you nose is so sharp it becomes a weapon and at the same time push it way up in the air and then make that sound of complete disgust at everyone who dares to question your vision.  I tried taping my nose that way once but it ended up just looking like a pig nose and no-one felt the least bit threatened by me. 

Not even the pigs.

Instead I told them the cows ate my homework and took a non-complete.

Those damn cows would eat anything.

Grandfather Clocks.

gic1

My grandfather had a grandfather clock ... I think it is mandatory or something when you become a grandfather.

They clearly don't care so much if women can tell time with class so grandma's get doilies and lots of lavender stuff.

My grandfather's grandfather clock was big and freaking annoying. I wanted to shoot it. No-one seriously needs to know every time another 15 minutes have passed and who came up with the brilliant idea that at the time of night you most want to be asleep, it must BONG BONG BONG 12 times? And you know everyone in the house and the next 8 farms over, along with all the cows and chickens are lying in the dark counting 1,2,3 ....

My grandparents clucked (yes it is true when you live with chickens long enough you begin to sound like them) when we told them it annoyed us and assured us they didn't even notice it anymore and that we would get used to it. No, they didn't notice it because they were both deaf.

That made a chiming clock for the hard of hearing elderly, probably the stupidest idea anyone ever came up with.

Well maybe the second stupidest ... the first would be having the combine manual written in english, french and baille.
