Random Thought For the Day

When I die, I don’t want to be cremated. I want to be buried in the ground so that my body can rot away and one day archaeologists can dig me up.

If people still did it, I’d love to be mummified.

I imagine that costs a crap-ton of money.

However! I still want my family to get an urn in remembrance of me. Urns are cool. They can be pretty.

I want them to keep skittles in my urn and freak people out.

They’ll be thinking “Taste the rainbow”

Guests be thinking “Holy cannibalism batman, they’re tasting their grandma.”

It’s gonna be great. I’ll laugh from heaven at the horrified face of my great-granddaughters boyfriend when she hands him a handful of skittles from the urn and whispers seductively “Taste the rainbow”

These are my long term plans.

A Post in Which I Use a Mean Word

WARNING: If finding out the actual meaning of the word ‘slut’ and why the term ‘slut-shaming’ needs to be done away with offends you than this is not the post for you.

Someone told me today that the word ‘slut’ is around the make girls feel bad about showing off their body.

Obviously this person has never seen a dictionary.

The definition of slut: A woman who has many sexual partners. Also see- whore, harlet, tramp.

Huh. Nothing about her body or the way she dresses.

An awful thing has happened. People now use the term “slut-shaming” when they feel like one person is trying to tell another person how to dress.

Misusing words is dangerous.

By saying people shouldn’t ‘slut-shame’ you are inadvertently saying that being a slut is okay.

This is what your daughters, sisters, and friends are seeing. Being a slut is ok because people who slut-shame are evil, rigid, Christians who are judgmental, celibate, and self-righteous.

And no one wants to be like that.

STOP USING THIS TERM!

You don’t want your little girls to grow up to be sluts! Unexpected pregnancies resulting in abortions would happen. STD’s. Broken hearts. Emotional damage. Sometimes bodily damage.

Saying we shouldn’t ‘slut-shame’ is like saying prostitution is admirable and stripping is morally ok.

What we should be doing is teaching girls that they shouldn’t body-shame which is making other people feel bad about their bodies.

We should be discouraging them from a slutty lifestyle.

Christians especially should not be calling other people out on “slut-shaming”!  When we see others crying out about people “slut-shaming” we need to tell them that nothing about being a slut is commendable and that they should not be encouraging that!

Stand up for your beliefs! You are being silenced because you are afraid of hurting feelings.

Jesus was not silenced. He preached about sexual misconduct to hundreds of people! He told them what was wrong to do. You can do that! You are capable.

The only group that is allowed to be offended and oppressed nowadays is Christians. Anyone else and it’s a hate crime. But not Christians. Because we are SILENT. Speak up!

The church is being persecuted by our culture and we are letting it happen. Other people will not do the work for you. Christians needs to have a voice again.

The Truth AboutWomen Being Paid Less

Here’s the truth: Women are not getting paid less.

Anyone who has taken any sort of logical thinking course can figure out that the statistics can’t possibly take into account every possibility.

The fact is, yes, on average women make less of an income than men.

Because less women work! In 2014 47.4 of the civilian workforce was female. That 2.6% that was added onto the male wage average would’ve been quite a bit a money, making it look like men earned more. Which they did. Because there’s more of them.

More women are likely to quit a job to take care of family than men. The poll from non-working adults showed that 61% of women gave this reason and only 37% of men.

Also, take into account maternity leave, where women still have a job that they aren’t making money from.

Women are more likely to take part-time jobs so that they can also care for children, whereas more men take full-time jobs, consequently earning more money per year than women.

There are of course exception to every rule.

But if you look at the average per-year wage statistics statistics, which is all we get, it certainly looks like women are discriminated against, when really they just work less or work lower paying jobs.

More men seek the higher-paying full-time jobs so that they can support their families.

Middle-class wives, for the most part, don’t absolutely have to work and consequently don’t seek the highest paying jobs. They tend to find jobs that they’ll enjoy doing, or jobs where they can work from home, which, on average, won’t pay as much.

The wage gap doesn’t exist. It’s lies being spoon-fed to you from a media that wants to get feminists riled up.

Do some research, don’t just accept what you see on the news

Confessions of a Ninja Ballerina: Marriage

It has been 3 1/2 months since Golden Boy and I tied the knot.

It has been truly wonderful.

We have our own place, which we love. A cute little cabin, very small and very adorable. I’m having a grand time decorating on a budget. Value Village. Nobody should be above it. I found the most beautiful framed chalkboard there.

I try really hard to be a good wife and cook our meals most days. On days when I just really don’t feel like it, Golden Boy steps right in and gladly cooks dinner for me, which I find very sweet.

Of course there are the hard parts. But they aren’t bad. Just difficult. Little fights happen just like they did while we were dating. We get past them.

We go on a nice date night once a month. April’s happens to be tonight. He’s taking me out to dinner. I’m very excited:)

We have impromptu ‘date nights’ also, which usually consist of popcorn and South Park paired with a nice red wine. It works for us.

So, that’s what we’ve been up to. If you have any spectacular advice for newlyweds, we would love to hear it. Or if you newlyweds out there want to share your little stories, I would love to read them!

Also, would y’all be interested if I posted my favorite recipes so far? I have some good ones….

Bohemian Goddess and I do a Cafe Crawl

Recently the glorious Bohemian Goddess and I stormed through Anchorage, Alaska. While there we decided to do a café crawl.

We hit four cafes and thought we would give y’all a review.

Our first stop was Kaladi Brothers off 7th Avenue. We ordered the 4 cheese quiche and a hazelnut mocha to share.

Ratings:

Quiche: Bohemian Goddess-7        Wild Thing – 7

Mocha: BG- 9     WT- 9

Customer Service: BG-4.5       WT-5

Atmosphere: BG-7.5         WT- 8

 

We really liked it. There was awesome indie music, weird artwork, lots of walls separating sections, which we liked. Very modern, very relaxed.

 

Second stop was Steam Dot. We ordered an Americano.

Ratings:

Americano: BG- 8.5       WT- 8.5

Customer Service:  BG- 6.5     WT-8

Atmosphere:  BG – 8.5     WT-7

The music was good there too, maybe a little loud, but very good. There was a full bar there, which would’ve been cool if we were 21. Also, there was a Chris Evans look-alike. That was pleasant.

 

Next was Midnight Sun Café. I ordered the Wedding Cake Latte which was Coconut, vanilla, and Irish Cream. Bohemian Goddess order a Strawberry Guava Watermelon Red Bull Italian soda.

Ratings:

Latte:  WT- 6.5

Italian Soda:  BG- 6.5

Customer Service:  BG- 9     WT-9

Atmosphere: BG- 7.5    WT-7.5

 

The place was cute, kinda hippie, relaxing. Plus they had Taco comics. Adorable. It was colorful without being overwhelming and, again, good music.

 

Monday morning before we left town we stopped in Busy Beans. They serve Kaladi Brothers coffee. So we knew the coffee would be good. We both ordered a quad-shot mocha. I got a ham, cheddar, spinach, and pesto Panini. BG got a turkey, pepper jack, tomato, mayo, and grey poupon Panini.

Ratings:

Coffee: BG- 9       WT-9

Food:  BG-10!     WT-10!    (Soooooo yummy!)

Atmosphere: BG- 8   WT-8.5

Customer Service: BG-8      WT-8

 

It was a very open place. Had a kids section and everything. Cute artwork everywhere. The sandwiches took a while but were well worth the wait! Good music, just like everywhere else. Nothing too well-known, which we really enjoyed.

 

All in all, everything was way better than Starbucks and I don’t know why anyone would choose Starbucks over Kaladi Brothers. Seriously people. Drink local.

What’s your favorite café or coffee place? Please let us know!

#FeeltheBern

Ah, the favorite Democratic presidential candidate.

There are so many reasons to not vote for Bernie Sanders. Here are some of them.

~ Pro-choice (pro-abortion)
Morally this is wrong. As a Christian it is an abomination. It seems like as a nation we are taking steps to do away with abortions, but not fast enough. And it won’t get done with people like this.
~ Voted NO to banning partial birth abortions
What the what. The baby is BEING BORN. It is obviously a tiny human. It’s moving, crying, breathing. You can’t kill it. It’s alive. That’s murder.
~Voted yes on over 200 billion in stimulus spending
If you believe stimulus spending is actually good for the economy, you haven’t done any research. Here’s just one link for you. There’s many more.
~Black Lives Matter
ALL LIVES MATTER
The point of this organization is stop racism. How can you stop racism by perpetuating it through telling everyone that this one specific race of people are important enough to single themselves out by saying Black Lives Matter.
Good job ending racism. Let me know how that goes folks.
~Voted NO on protecting the Pledge of Allegiance
Doesn’t want to protect the phrase “One Nation, Under God”
~Pro-gay-rights
A lot of people don’t see this as an issue. As a Christian its a huge issue, a violation of traditional marriage, a pathway to polygamy, and make us as a nation similar to Sodom and Gomorrah.
~”War on Drugs is a failed policy”
He’s saying this because he’s pro-drug. War on Drugs would be great if there weren’t so many political top hats pro-drug.
~Voted NO on military border patrol to battle drugs and terrorism
No wonder its a failed policy. People like Bernie don’t want to do anything to keep illegal drugs out of our country.
~Voted NO on subjecting federal employees to random drug tests
What, federal employees never use drugs? For real?
~ Wants to spend 70 billion to make college and universities “tuition-free”
Does anyone understand that “tuition-free” does not mean free of charge to anyone. That’s still our money. That’s still our nations money. It comes from us. The only difference is the people using it didn’t have to work for it.
~Pro-Common Core
How do you make 10 out of 8+5?
You don’t.
Common Core needs to rot in hell.
~Wants to spend 18 billion to fund two-year “free” tuition at state colleges
AGAIN that’s our money given to people that don’t want to work for their own.
~Voted YES on additional 10.2 billion for federal education &HHS projects
This is money we don’t have ON TOP of money we don’t have.
~Voted YES on 84 million in grants for Black and Hispanic colleges
So… the same man who wants to end racism wants to give different ethnic groups their very own colleges and spaces.
You mean… segregation…?
~GMO’s are ok with labeling
The problem is, companies get tricky in their labeling because people don’t want to buy GMO stuffs.
~LGBTQ values are ‘family values’
Uh no. No they aren’t.
~He actually has an anti-family-value voting record
~Pro Syrian Refugees
The majority of Syrian refugees are young men ages 17-28 who are perfectly capable of fighting for their country. Either they are un-patriotic or they’re up to something here in the US
~Voted YES on congressional pay raise
Because they don’t get paid enough?!
~Voted NO on requiring an ID to vote in any election
Only US citizens should vote because illegal immigrants are only going to vote for whoever benefits them the most, not the country.
~Honestly can’t make up his mind on gun control
“Guns in Vermont are for hunting. In LA they’re for killing people.”
Is he really this stupid?
Donald deMag
Jason Michael Hann
Brian L. Rooney. All Vermont murderers.
There are hunters living in Los Angeles. Stop being an idiot Bernie.
~Pro-gun control voting record
Clear violation of the 2nd amendment.
~Mental  health coverage would stop homicide and suicide
Just it’s existence? Because people only get help if they want help. Also, are you saying that the GUN isn’t the issue here? That maybe *gasp* it’s the people using the gun??
~Voted NO on allowing tribal Indians to opt out of federal healthcare
Isn’t it pretty racist to take away their right to choose? After all they were here first…
~No Border fence
None. It’s like we’re holding up a sign “LOTS OF JOBS AND WELFARE OVER HERE. YOU EVEN GET TO VOTE FOR WHOEVERS GOING TO GIVE YOU THE MOST MONEY”
~Voted NO on declaring English the official language of the US
Because apparently it’s unfair to illegal immigrants who are here illegally and who don’t bother to learn English first because they are illegal.
Illegal.
~Supports raising minimum wage to $15
And consequently supports the loss of minimum wage jobs across the country.
~Voted yes on extending unemployment to 59 weeks
That’s over a year! Who can’t get another job in a YEAR?!
We are rewarding people for being lazy in this country. Why do you think America is the fattest country?
~”Our invasion of Iraq led to ISIS”
What?! You think our country led to the creation of ISIS?? I got news for you. Before we invaded there was the Taliban. There’s just always terrorists. Not our fault.
So these are just a few reasons why Bernie Sanders would make a positively horrific president.
