Makes me ill

Before I begin my rant, I watched this small series called "My Holiday Hostage Hell". They were true stories about how tourists had been held hostage for ransom money. One episode told the story about a woman and her mother going to Bolivia. They got into a taxi van that wasn't what it seemed to be. They tied them up and demanded they give them their card numbers or be shot. One of the kidnappers sexually violated the younger of the two. They where set free in a dangerous gang neighborhood after being held for almost 24 hours. They called the British embassy who would not help them since it wasn't a week day. They ended up contacting the Polish embassy who they said helped greatly. There were also two other stories I watched and those weren't so lucky they were held from 6months to a year. The lesson is to make sure if you're going somewhere, especially if they don't speak the same language, to look up in travel guides about spots to avoid or contact travel agencies if anything like that has happened recently.

Okay time for me to rant!

I was watching possibly the most depressing channel, the history channel. It started off with the Kent State Shooting, then moved to the Romanov murders, and then lastly the nylon killings. After the nylon I was filled with so much sadness and anger I had to change the channel.

The Kent state shooting happened while the Vietnam War was happening, That wasn't the whole reason of the protest the students held that day. Some where protesting the right to protest and others where protesting peace. They called army men to keep the protest in order. But things did not go as they normally would. The army men fired upon the students for no reason. Killing four students, two of which weren't even apart of the protest but simply walking to class. I can't remember which boy it was that was walking to class but the girl in the bottom right hand corner was walking to class when she was shot dead. Normally in these situations they don't put ammo in their guns, they put their ammo on clips and wear them as an intimidation factor. Why were they ordered to shot we might never know. One of the soldiers who fired that day almost broke down with an apology, whether he meant it or not is up to you.

What really pissed me off was a comment an older lady said during an interview, she said "They deserved to be shot, they should have shot more, they were warned" First off B**** a young girl walking to class did not deserve to be killed. Second no they really weren't warned, They were talking to people and all of a sudden shots where fired. Basically it made me physically ill to hear someone say that. I do not approve of violent protests, it never gets anything done. College students across the united states started protesting (After the Kent state shootings) and some lead to violence as in mom and pop stores where broken into or ransacked which again I don't approve of. But what they lady said really got under my skin.

The Romanov murders where very emotional and very mysterious because no one really knows exactly what happened that night. Some hope that the family was not killed and only lived in secrecy. Or that Anastasia had fled and hid in secrecy. Many Movies where made around her. But sadly that was only a hope because a group of men found the skulls of the father, mother, and three of the girls. As far as I know they haven't found the bodies of the young son and one of one of the girls. I say one of because scientists are conflicted on whether one of the bodies is Anastasia or Maria.

Hello Kitty, Sweets, and Music

You're not dreaming I promise, It's real. It's a resort in Taiwan, well really a house that's part of the resort. You can stay in it! Gah could you image?

I don't even really like sweets and this looks GOOD

I found this website internet surfing, 100layercake.com, I found this on there. It's kind of a DIY wedding website.

I've been listening to Liz Phair recently, she has a unique I don't care i'll sing what I want attitude about her music. South Dakota is one of those songs.

South Dakota Lyrics
Artist:Liz Phair

For a mean baby, well, I like your pants
Born in South Dakota
For a mean baby, well, I like your hips
Born in South Dakota
I was born in South Dakota
Man, I feel lucky tonight
I'm gonna get stoned and run around
Born in South Dakota
Hey, we're going to a rodeo town
I'm gonna get drunk and fuck some cows
Born in South Dakota
I was born in South Dakota
I was born in South Dakota

Hey, all you city fucks, it's a prairieman's world
It's wide open
Hey, all you city fucks, it's a prairieman's world
Masons and lumberchucks, says God as my squirrel
It's wide open
I said it's wide open

Man, I feel lucky tonight
I'm gonna get stoned and run around
Born in South Dakota
Hey, we're going to a rodeo town
I'm gonna get drunk and fuck some cows
Born in South Dakota
I was born in South Dakota
I was born in South Dakota

Hey, all you city fucks, it's a prairieman's world
It's wide open
Hey, all you city fucks, it's a prairieman's world
Mason and lumberchucks, says God as my squirrel
Mr. Fliptop and Razorback, you know I'm your girl
I'm wide open
I said I'm wide open

Potatos the miracle food!

I absolutely love this kitchen. If my kitchen looked like this I would probably spend most if not all my time in it. Gorgeous... simply gorgeous!!

I found it here . It's my new favorite website. It's called Apartmenttherapy.com and people from different places with small living spaces show you how they designed their space or you can ask questions about how you want to design your space. Many people will ask if something is "hot or not" which in my opinion it shouldn't matter it's your space but I still love the website!

Also I found a website that's going to help me grow potatoes next summer. It's a little to late to try and grow them now but that's okay. See Even though I do have a reasonable room to plant I plan on growing tomatoes, corn, and okra. Potatoes don't need a lot of room but they tend to rot the soil after wards and you have to keep moving them to new spaces each new planting season. Other wise you'll have bad batch of potatoes. I found a way to grow them in a trash can. A clean one hahaha. I don't know which potatoes I want to grow yet though Kennebec or rustic are good for frying. Red Norland is really good for baking because of the slightly waxing texture but oh so good for frying too!! Geez i've been blabbing on a lot about potatoes but I can't help it I do love those little spuds so much..^. ^

Death by Twitter

You can check out the story here. The short story is a 17 year old Romanian girl accidentally electrocuted herself but trying to update her twitter page, on a laptop, in the tub. Her battery was dying so with wet hands she plugged it into an outlet. I'm not trying to be mean, but when I heard this it made me extremely sad and worried. Sad for the loss of the parents and worried because this girl was 17. Most, if not all, of us should know to not mix electronics and water. It'll either kill the gadget or you in the process. Same with a hair dryer or cd player, it doesn't mix with water. I was at a loss for words...

Link back contest

I was tagged by Under the sheets-shhh to do a 4th of July questionnaire contest.

The rules are to answer 4 questions and link back to her. So here it goes...

The Four Questions are:

1) Do you have a favorite firework that you wait to see every Fourth of July? I'm not sure what they are called but they are golden and fall down almost like a weeping willow.

2) Tell me the one Fourth of July memory, that makes you smile.
Well when I was a young girl my dad use to shoot off fireworks. Everyone on our street would come and sit in our yard and watch the fireworks. One year we almost set a tree on fire. Giggle giggle

3) What food do you crave at a Fourth of July picnic?
I would have to say Watermelon!

4) And for my fashionistas, what is the perfect outfit to watch the fireworks in.
hmm, a sundress ....mainly because that's what I wore! ^. ^
