That is no longer who I am.
But, I am still friends only, and you must comment to be added. And you had better give me a good reason to do so.
check it out
i update my 101 blog pretty much daily, same thing with the money one.
blaming me for shit that i could/would never do. this includes both hacking and leaving anonymous comments. i'm computer retarted half the time, you think i have the ability to "hack"? as for anonymous comments, if i type something out and post it, then my name is attached 99.99% of the time. there are very few exceptions to this.
in other ridiculous (not so new) news, zehrs sucks donkey nuts. i had the will-power yesterday to NOT get physical with someone. i was really., really close to punching someone.
now is NOT the time for me to get suspended/fired.
i've been working everyday. this wednesday, gave up a shift cause i need a day to do laundry/cleaning/the rest of my christmas shopping.
i'm kind of starting to get excited for christmas/the new year/my birthday. i have so many things planned and in the works, i don't know if i'll have enough time to do them all.
i got some of the money from windsor insider last night, which was really nice. if i would have gotten paid back when i was actually doing the work, i know i would have spent all the money by now. i basically have 3income streams right now, not counting the money i am getting from online advertising/surveys.
i don't want to say this, but it's looking up :)
i am going to try to write 1000 words in this post, without going back and re-reading, and making myself sound eloquent (because i'm really not) if you don't read this, i totally understand. if you do, that's awesome. i really just don't have anywhere else to write where i can go back and re-read whenever i want. my other blogs are public and this isn't really meant for the world to see. this really isn't going to flow... it's still going to be a jumble of thoughts. i jsut need to talk about stuff.
i've been knitting a lot. right now, it's mostly rick's moms christmas present. i'm making her 5 dishcloths in a blue/white colourway. they're really nice, if i say so myself. i don't know what else we're going to get her. we're trying to keep it super low cost. he has such a big family (he's the oldest of 4 boys, 2 of them are engaged, plus both his parents) i really hope they don't all get me something for the holidays. i don;t have the money to buy them all something, and i don't really know them all that well.
also, on the topic of christmas, my parents gift is currently sitting on wendy's desk at her workplace. i ordered them a really cute birdhouse. my brother and i still have to take pictures with AJ. i have no idea when that is going to happen with the new job and all.
teaopia is amazing. seriously, i'm having so much fun being there. i'm starting to get into a rhythm with it. i know how to make most teas. i know what's in some of them. how a few of them taste. the health benefits of very few. the people i have worked with so far (angela and kim, mostly) are really cool, too. i'm so happy i was hired there... it's something i really enjoy (for once)
i'm hoping to buy a macbook and an iphone in the VERY near future. i'm saving my pennies for the macbook, the iphone, i'm not too worried about.
i am working on a few new things to make for made in windsor. i know the scarves and hats are going to lose popularity in january, so i need to have things to replace them with. i was thinking of dish cloths/face cloths more than anything else. i really don't know what else to bring. i wanted to do baby blankets, but no one is buying them. i think it's the price that's a huge turn off... when i'm spending 13$ on yarn, and selling the blanket for 40, i'm only making about 15$ on it at the end of the day. i'm not lowering my prices. any suggestions on what to make? i want to keep it simple, inexpensive, and easy enough that i can memorize the pattern and knit on the go.
tonight is craft night. i really have no idea where i stand on that... i'm thinking i will ride it out until the new year at least. i think the twice a month thing may have been the thing that killed it... i love phog. i love having a reason to go there on a regular basis cause i want to support them. they have been talking about "after phog closes" and "when we sell phog" a bit lately. that makes me really nervous and kind of sad. if i had the money and at least one business class under my belt, i'd buy that place in a second. i would change the physical appearance, but keep the way that it feels like home, family and a get away all at once. i love that place...
wow. i'm not anywhere near 1000 words yet... i don't know how NaNoWriMo writers can do it... i'm going to finish this now, because i have to go to SaintFlamingo and drop off some stuff.
then i worked at made in windsor for a few hours
worked all day yesterday
had a job interview today
got the job and i start on monday...
also, i want to not have emotions. that would be really fucking cool.
in any case, i started a 101 in 1001 list. i plan on starting t on my birthday (january 4th, in case you were wondering :P ) i will finish on the first of october 2012. rick is starting his on his birthday (january 30th) and will finish on october 27th 2012. i'm glad we're both finishing our lists before the end of the world lololol
other than that, i had my craft show this past saturday. it sucked hard,
i dont feel like writing anymore.
The Controversial Survey
1) Do you have the guts to answer these questions?
no, this is a dumb fucking question. of course I do, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this right now
2) Would you do meth if it was legalized?
No, I'd like to keep my teeth.
3) Abortion: for or against it?
I'm not for abortion, but I am pro choice. If you get raped, and get knocked up, there is no reason for you to keep that child. It will only serve as a reminder for what happened to you. If you are under the age of 16 and you get knocked up, you should be forced into getting an abortion and have to go through therapy and counseling to see what a parent has to go through to raise a child. Also, if the mother's life is in danger, and abortion is the only option to save her life, what would you do then, all you pro-lifers out there? let the mother AND the fetus die? Or let the fetus take one for the team and get sucked out to save the mothers life?
On the other hand, I don;t think abortions are a valid for of birth control. If you have two and three and four abortions in a lesser amount of years, you need to have a female circumcision done so that sex is painful for you, and you will not require an other one ever again.
4) Do you think the world would fail with a female president?
The USA is not the world. Many countries are doing just fine on their own, without input from Mr. Obama.
This being said, no country would automatically fail with a female leader. Even those countries in which women have no rights. That one woman would be a revolutionary and could change every law in order to make women equal.
5) Do you believe in the death penalty?
No, not at all. In fact, the death of Saddam Hussein angered me (Also, I don't think Saddam Hussein's name should be in the internet dictionary, seeing as Obama's isn't) If someone has committed a crime so vile and disgusting that they should be killed, would it not be justifiable for them to go through the same sort of torture they put their victims through? If a man raped and murdered a hundred women, he should, too, be raped and tortured a hundred times. Then, at the end, he should be locked up until his dying day.
6) Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
Yes. It should be regulated like tobacco or alcohol. Just think of the taxes. If I smoked as much as I used to (a joint a day for a while) and it went for the same price as is does now (~$10 a gram) and it was taxed like everything else (13%, including provincial and federal taxes) I would generate an extra 237.25$ in taxes a year. Most people smoke more than that. Just think of what a country could do with that much extra income.
Weed is not addictive. I stopped smoking pot at the drop of a hat (I do still smoke on occasion, but I never buy). I've quit smoking 3 times. There is the difference between
7) Are you for or against premarital sex?
For. You have to test drive before you buy.
Really though, if I wanted to get the same full body high I get after sex, I would be smoking a lot more pot, or doing heavier drugs.
I'd rather fuck someone than pop pills, or snort something.
8) Do you believe in God?
I did for a long period of time. I was a youth group leader, a prayer leader, an altar server and I went to church every Saturday and Sunday.
Then I went to confession at a church in a different town. The priest told me I couldn't be saved if I continued to question christian authority. That was the last time I set foot in a church.
9) Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
It is. I'm actually going to a wedding between two beautiful women at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
10) Do you think it’s wrong that so many Hispanics are illegally moving to the USA?
Would you do the work they do for the wages they do? I don't think anyone would. If every hispanic moved back home, and people on unemployment took their jobs, they would still have to receive government assistance due to being under-employed. Plus, the increase in wages would drive up the cost of the product that employer is selling (ie. strawberries from California) to the point that no one would be able to afford them on such paltry wages as they are earning. So then the gov. would increase minimum wage to help everyone afford stuff they "need" and the suppliers would then have to increase the cost, and nothing would get done and money would become worthless.
11) A twelve year old girl has a baby, should she keep him?
No. and that CHILD's parents should have their child(ren) removed from them because they are obviously not involved in their lives enough.
12) Should the alcohol age be lowered to eighteen?
No. I'm tired of my downtown being over taken by underage americans already.
13) Should the war in Iraq be called off?
Called off? I don't know. But the soldiers over there should be given some honest answers.
14) Assisted suicide is illegal: do you agree?
No. But it should be highly regulated. If one is in pain constantly and needs to be sedated to near-unconsciousness in order to be in a comfortable state of existence, they should be allowed to off themselves in a safe manner. They should first be required to pay for all post-mortem costs in advance, as well as have a will and have spoken to all people who are in close association with them (friends, family etc)
15) Do you believe in spanking your children?
Yes. But only after the 3 warning rule. And only one time. And only with a reasonable amount of force.
I have been spanked to the point of bleeding, and to the point where my ass was so bruised I couldn't sit down. This is completely unacceptable. (I am still resentful towards my father for this) One tap on a child's backside is reasonable.
I am a strong supporter of the Tabasco treatment though. If your kid gets lippy you put a drop of tobasco in a half teaspoon of water and make them take it like cough syrup. They are not allowed to eat or drink anything for 15 seconds for every year of their life. (if your child is 8, they can't have anything for 2 minutes etc) I got this once and straightened out right away.
16) Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
I'd probably do it for less. Not as a form of protest or anything, but just to say I did.
17) Who do you think would make a better president?
I am Canadian. It doesn't affect me quite as much as it would an American.
18) Do you think Obama will be killed?
I sure hope not. He is a good father and a good husband, first of all. No little girl should be without her daddy.
19) Should child predators be forced to wear signs identifying themselves?
As long as drunk drivers, shoplifters, illegal immigrants, thieves and all other criminals do, as well. (Not many people would be without a sign)
20) Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?It's going to happen, I'm sure of it. But this is the way I think. Comment if you'd like to discuss.
