ASl – Firework – Katy Perry

Published April 13, 2013 by tuckle

This is one of the most beautiful videos I have seen. I swear, for me, sometimes I really “get” the song once I have seen it signed.

This song I love, it resonates with me. I know some people do not like it, but I think if you have ever felt like a plastic bag drifting through the wind, wanting to start again… then you know.

People. I don’t get them.

Most days, I feel like I am from another planet. No lie.

Lawns. WHY do people care so much about lawns? Knickers in knots over water restrictions. Fine, xeriscape your yard! Better yet, take a big picture approach and think “Yay, my city is doing something for the planet” or barring that, think back on how little rainfall we have had this year. You do not NEED two giant green lawns. You are not a golf course.

The Bible is true and the world is only 6,000 years old. Yeah, um, okay then.

Cigarette smoking is not an addiction. Oh COME ON NOW, you are joking, right?

Anyway, have some music.

Envy, cooking, tablets

I envy people who enjoy cooking. I spent some time tonight at my usual haunt, Barnes and Noble. I was seeking to learn a bit more about slow-cooker cooking. Indeed, I learned that Crockpots came out in 1970, so 43 years late, I am learning how to use one. And not even for myself, but for cooking dog food.

I suppose if I had ever had a big family or something, I might have been forced into learning how to cook, but I didn’t.

Nonetheless, I found this cookbook to be the best and easiest to read, with recipes that did not make feel stupid.

The Complete Slow Cooker Cook Book

Makes me wonder if people who do like to cook and really buy lots of cookbooks also enjoy buying cookbooks for their tablets, such as Nook Color or iPad and reading them for fun and inspiration. I bet having a cookbook on your device and making notes and stuff would be fun.

However, it is kind of sad that people will not find their granny’s old recipes anymore.

Kinda like Hilah did when she found a recipe card that said “Cocktail 1934″

Hilah also wrote a cookbook. Her website is

Oy. I am just blathering now.

So there’s a blog out there called Oh No They Didn’t, also known as ONTD, famous for being the largest community on LiveJournal (which is apparently still a thing; who knew?) and for having a metric crap-ton of contributors providing celebrity gossip, reactions to TV shows, and notes on other pop culture filler. And it’s all stolen. Every single word.

A screen capture from Hiding Out - See? I'm clearly noting the source of this material. How novel!

Don’t f*ck with me

Words to live by

That is kinda how my day felt today. My Aquarius nature, the stifling environment I spend my days in, my doing the right thing, my not being allowed to tell my side of a story, all of this combines in a highly combustible mix.

I am desperately seeking to strive to be HAPPY not right, but sometimes when things are just so so so so wrong, it becomes difficult to sit back and not speak up.

Bear with me. Or Bare if you desire.
