Today was one of those days- every stupid remark or dog stare was pissing me off. Dirk made the comment that I needed to turn off the TV so it could stop irritating me and I realized that I should probably be in my room. But really- if you move to a third world country how are earth can you be not aware of the living conditions and cost. Sometimes I wonder how theses couples were expecting – and how do they have gull to be offended when there is not electricity or running water? Do they think they are gods living better than the inhabitants?
Philippe I, Duke of Orléans from Versailles
Me: He gay but a decisive military leader so I’m safe on all counts.
Dirk: I’m ok with that.
I have a bad reaction to people who curse constantly- I shun them. I’m not offended by their lack of verbal communication skills but the fact that it reminds me of my darker side. I curse like a sailor when depressed but I don’t make people listen to it. Having to hear people curse when I’m trying to watch a documentary and their cursing gets to be more the focus than the information I’m trying to learn just makes me frustrated. I want to be enlightened not reminded of my shortcomings.
If I could have been reincarnated from a fictional character it would be Lady Violet Crowley (aka Maggie Smith). I’m stuck in the past, like traditional values and love to be a sass.
I’ve started watching Downton Abby and find myself pulled into the time. My old fashion ideas would fit nicely there but I’m afraid that like so many women I would not have survived childbirth. If my childhood had allowed me to even get to that age – medicines and the practices of the time could not have saved me and I know that during that era many were without the understanding of mental illness as we know it today. Think how much has changed in the last 100 year.
(I’m only on season 4 so don’t tell me how it ends.)
My husband and I have been enjoying the show Colony on Netflix and it has lead to some interesting discussions – tonight’s was on weather I would fight for my survival.
After a brief stare down with Dirk he replied, “oh course you’re a fighter- what am I’m thinking.”
My Mind: This is why you never see aliens try to take over a physc ward – they would never last against us.
I admit I like Korean dramas – it’s like any good book that has its moments that pull you in or move you forward- but most importantly it has an ending. Otherwise I would lose all track of time.
