Rain, Rain Go Away

It’s kinda rainy here today in Hawaii … So, between snuggling with my 2 year old Fairy Girl and doing some online work I am CLEANING! Dishwasher has already run (need to empty it and refill it) and the laundry is ready to be washed.

I also mopped the hallway! Yay! My goal is to finish straightening the living room and get the sink EMPTIED! I also need to make the 8 year old pick up the clean laundry off the laundry room floor and sort it into baskets to be folded and put away. He hates that shit. I love to torture him ;)

Eating something food-like would probably be a good idea also.

The Right to Bear Arms

This is an article written on a blog called Jack of All Spades. Here is a snippit – but I suggest you read the rest on the original blog. Excellant article! When I share stuff like this on places like Facebook I open myself up to people who disagree with my (strong) feelings on gun control. On here – my blog – I feel better about not allowing someone to disagree – lol …

For as long as I can remember, the political officers of the United States have regularly misused tragedy for their own causes. This is in reality just human nature to make the best of a situation but the real issue arises when that person takes a very serious situation and pushes through an agenda on the backs of small children. I deeply regret the tragic events involving recent active shooters and wish a speedy recovery to all involved. I wish that the communities worst hit by these events can move past these events with strength. Life gives us lemons every day; I just don’t expect them to come in the form of an active shooter. What I do expect is that no matter the lemon, we can find a way to make lemonade.

Read the rest!

Disagree all you want – I don’t care. But I’m not debating this topic and I’m not going to “agree” with you.

If you don’t like guns, fine. You aren’t taking mine away. I’ll just be the one saving YOUR ass when the shit hits the fan. Don’t tell me that “they aren’t trying to take your legally acquired guns” – yes, “they” are. They might not be saying it NOW – but I strongly believe that this “gun control” ladder will come to that point.

This Explains a Lot

Got this from Tumblr. I always find my favorite things on there. Or Pinterest …

Oh gosh … the Disney Tarzan movie just came on the television … I’m so not interested …

Hey Macarena!

Merry Creepy Christmas

Children of the Victorian Era had to be tough, because this Santa Claus would have given me nightmares! This picture is a detail of a larger family portrait from Flickr user stevechasmar.

Catching Fire in Hawaii – Fans Want to Meet You!

I just posted a tweet to Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence and Jena Malone:

#THG @jhutch1992 - @jenniflawrence_ - @jenaamalone – You’ve all got LOTS of fans who would love to meet you here in Oahu! #808 #Military

I’m pretty sure they won’t see it though. BUT – I know the power of social media – so maybe ya’ll can help me!

The cast of Catching Fire is currently on Hawaii (Oahu) shooting scenes for the movie. Normally, with big movies the Navy Exchange or Moral, Welfare & Recreation (MWR) would be having a fan ‘Meet n’ Greet’ with cast members. For some reason – the Hunger Games cast isn’t having on.

The cast did a ‘Mall Tour” for the last movie – and Hawaii isn’t on the list. But why not? They are here anyway – why not do a meet n’ greet and meet up with some of the awesome military families stationed here on-island?

Please re-share this and help me make some noise! :)
