Is it a mom thing? To get excited about?

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

So back in the day I might get excited about buying new shoes, or an electronic something, a cool accessory. *Sigh* Well I am soooo excited about…my new vacuum. It’s coming Wednesday and I can’t wait to use it.

My Dyson died, and honestly this is my 2nd one in 4 years, I’m done with that brand. After reading hundreds of reviews and looking at all the allergy and asthma websites, this one looked like the best option with the best reputation.

Is this normal? Is it a mom thing to get excited about appliances? Please say yes 🙂
Stay@: It does do hardwood and the lin… I can’t wait to use it. I have carpet in the bedrooms and livingroom, hardwood in the kitchen and lino in the bathroom. I may leave work early Wednesday to fully appreciate my purchase… Oh if my high school friends could see me now. lol

    I need shoe advice? help please?

    Friday, March 18th, 2011

    So I’m going on a date to Olive Garden in 10 minutes and found out I don’t have the shoes I wanted to wear with me (I’m in a dorm right now, the shows are at my house).
    So I need to know which ones to wear.
    My outfit is a black dress, my only accessory is a black watch with silver detail.
    My shoe options are: brown Ugg boots, white platforms, black sport flats (which are kind of dirty), or black sneakers.
    I know nothing about fashion so please help me. I want to make a good impression.

      Christians is your religion needlessly bloody?

      Friday, March 18th, 2011

      (background info; if needed)

      1: "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying …"
      10: "And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people."

      11: "For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul."

      "I understand the Christian Faith to be based on blood:

      The blood of Abel crying out from the ground and being heard by God is the first mention of blood in the Bible.
      The first shedding of blood may have been by God when God provided skin coverings for Adam and Eve before their expulsion from the Garden.
      God "passes over" the homes which have blood sprinkled on their doorposts and lintels in Egypt before the Exodus.
      God teaches Moses the shedding, spilling, and sprinkling of blood as ritual sacrifices necessary for the atonement of sins and the purification of the priests and accessories for the tabernacle.
      For thousands of years the Old Testament portion of the Bible chronicles countless blood sacrifices before and upon the altar of God in both the tabernacle and the Temple at Jerusalem.
      And the prophets, speaking for God, gave many dire warnings of serious repercussions because of the shedding of innocent blood."

      A person can experience a relatively minor injury, and suffer the fatal process of exsanguination — the complete loss of blood. Their body may appear almost entirely intact and yet the person would lie dead in a pool of their own blood. Ancient peoples would have noted this. Blood would come to be viewed as the life force, or as a fluid that contains the life force. Early religions, including Judaism, assigned magical power to animal and human blood."

      ***************
      – In the Christian myth. Jesus’ perfect blood sacrifice (acting as the lamb of God) provided a total remission of sins toward all who accepted him. This is because "the wage of sin is death" and "life is in the blood". However the preceding statement is now known to be fallacious. There is plenty of Biological life in the world; much of it without blood. Life isn’t technically in the blood. It’s just a liquid mixture of various cells, nutrients, waste, and gasses (transported within the cells)

      Your gods passion for blood is almost reminiscent of the Aztec gods passion for blood for the very same reason. People believed that blood was magical and could be used for atonement and as a way to with the favor of the god/s because they didn’t understand it.

      Your biblical god appears to the outside analyzer as primitive and quite literally bloodthirsty.

      *So my question is: What separates your God and his preference of atonement from all the other Gods and their rules of atonement (some of which are peaceful not bloodthirsty).
      Myth was not meant to be read as "mythology".

      def.
      "In the study of folklore, a myth is a sacred narrative explaining how the world and humankind came to be in their present form.[4][5][6] Many scholars in other fields use the term "myth" in somewhat different ways.[6][7][8] In a very broad sense, the word can refer to any traditional story.[9]"

        Dogs in Aparments….?

        Thursday, March 17th, 2011

        So. I am aware that I will not get a dog for a long time, because I am only 15 and already have 3 cats, unless by some miracle my mother says yes (haha, not going to happen x3), but IF I were to get a dog in my current sitiuation… What kind of dogs do well in apartments? It’s on the 3rd floor, and Germany doesn’t have air conditioning, so don’t suggest a dog like a Newfoundland because they really dislike heat, and it gets hot in the summer. I need a dog that would do well with cats, and obviously one that wouldn’t bark too much. Yes, pets are allowed in the apartment, and we own it so that wouldn’t be a problem. We have a balcony, which is pretty big, and a HUGE garden below, so I could take it out there at night just to poop real quick. The dog would also be alone from 7:30 to 1:30 most days, but some days I come home early because school is shorter. I’m also not interested in some dog that you carry around like a fashion accessory and dress up. Not only is it wrong, but I enjoy going for longer walks in the forest, and bigger dogs would make that easier. Also, if you’re just going to tell me ‘OMG YOU MEAN HORRIBLE PERSON YOUR DOG CAN’T BE ALONE,’ save it for someone who cares about your opinion. Dogs can be prefectly happy alone, especially if I can get 2 dogs at the same time like I intend to. Anyways, thanks in advance for the advice ^^ Telling me I’m a horrible person for wanting a dog is pointless and a waste of time. You telling me I shouldn’t have a dog does nothing. You should be off going around trying to rescue dogs from REAL abusive homes.
        I knew that would come across wrong. I care about your opinion if you’re actually trying to help. But if you’re one of those people who says ‘well dogs shouldn’t be alone you horrible person go throw yourself off a cliff,’ then I don’t care because your answer is not only stupid, but won’t change a thing ._.;
        Haha person with no picture, you’re so funny. TONS of people have dogs in apartments? How ’bout NYC, where most people live in apartments? Are you honestly trying to say that EVERYONE who lives in an apartment is not suited to be a dog owner?

          and that’s everything I picked out so far. it will take a while though because everything together is up to like 224 dollars. any more ideas that are cheap that would go with the room ‘theme’ though would be greatly appreciated. and please comment and tell me what you think and everything. btw i’m 14, female. and the theme for the room is obviously colors like black, white, and pink.
          Thanks "oh i’m falling", I really do love your ideas (: and I also realized your from Raleigh, NC, that’s pretty cool considering I’m from York, SC, so you really don’t live that far away from me.

            Cake/Cupcake decorating kit?

            Monday, March 14th, 2011

            I am looking for a birthday gift for my girlfriend. She’ll be turning 22 later this month and she had a little machine that makes mini cupcakes as well as a set of mini cake pans. She likes to decorate them, but she doesn’t think they turn out well using a knife and the decorator it came with (this is the cake one I believe http://www.amazon.com/MINI-TIERED-DECORATING-ACCESSORIES-TOTAL-14PC/dp/B0031QF3WU/ref=sr_1_53?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1299448951&sr=1-53). So I was thinking for her birthday I could get her a turning decorating table and maybe something to decorate the cakes and cupcakes with, but I have no idea what I’m looking at or what to buy. We’re both still in college, so money is a bit tight, so that factors in too.

            A turntable I found is here (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00138Y964/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER) and has some fairly good reviews. I think it would work.

            When looking for decorating supplies, I really got lost. There are so many on amazon. Here are some of the ones I found:

            Ateco set: http://www.amazon.com/Ateco-Piece-Cake-Decorating-Set/dp/B001B2QXJS/ref=sr_1_55?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1299448951&sr=1-55

            Wilton set: http://www.amazon.com/Wilton-Decorating-Basics-Student-Kit/dp/B003LMY6JA/ref=sr_1_32?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1299449179&sr=1-32

            Progressive set: http://www.amazon.com/Progressive-International-Bakers-Decorating-Set/dp/B000S0YNUU/ref=sr_1_47?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1299448567&sr=1-47

            I honestly don’t know much about them or what would be good for her. She just enjoys to decorate them and have fun. I think they are perfect the way they are, because they all taste the same going down, but she wants make them look better. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

              What to wear to a garden Tea Party?

              Friday, February 18th, 2011

              On the twenty fifth of July i am going to one of my best friend’s Sixteenth Birthday, and it is to be a tea party at four o’clock pm. I have long wavy (about twelve inches past my shoulders) red brown hair, fare skin, freckles, and green blue eyes, and 5 foot 7 inches. I recently bought this pair of pale pink t-bar flats, and am planning to wear those to the party.
              http://www.polyvore.com/twinkle_toes_strap_flat-mod_retro/thing?id=17687698
              I have a pair of white lace tights, would that work with the party, or would that not look right with the pale pink flats? Do you have any ideas of what i might wear to the tea party? I am thinking of a dress or skirt, any ideas? I am very girly when it comes to the way i dress. I love lace, pearls, pale pinks, tights, etc.
              Also, any ideas of how to wear my hair? I do not own a straightener because i do not like to straighten my hair. Any hair accessories? I own a black cloth flower clip around six inches in diameter (it was free, someone clipped it to this hat that i bought). Thank you for your answers!
