I agree with you it's weird. I'm a believer that the age of consent should be 18 - When you're a legal adult. I'm always creeped out with these 20-somethings dating teenagers. My cousin just turned 18 this year and her boyfriend is 24 but they started dating when she was 16! I was super creeped out. Especially because I used to go to school with his little sister and he's always been a creep.
I've always been mature for my age, I'm 20 now and I tend to get along with people at least 5 years older than me. I just don't vibe with most people my age... I'm past that "woo party!" stage and most people my age seem so shallow and well, stupid. However, back when I was 17 I was in University in classes with 25 year olds but I wouldn't date any of them. I find its okay to like older men and once you reach an appropriate age you can date whoever you like. I don't have a problem with large age gaps but not when 1 of the people involved is a minor.
If you can't even get into a rated R movie you shouldn't be doing rated R things. That's a rule people should stick by. hahaha
Thanks tasmia :) -Nice Lolita quote. I read that last year in Uni.
This one is not one of mine. It's a lyric from the song "Superheroes" taken from the musical "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" I really love the verses so that's why I'm sharing.
And crawling on the planet's face
Some insects called the human race
Lost in time, and lost in space
To hopefully get this ball rolling a little more, here's another one of mine.
Itâ€™s a sad fate to be living,
In a house like this.
Youâ€™ve turned it into a Newtonâ€™s cradle,
And it brings you happiness.
You enjoy the fact that when youâ€™re gone,
Weâ€™re all waiting here at home.
And youâ€™re comfortable with the idea,
That we feel left alone.
As soon as we start moving,
You call us all back in.
We come back every time,
To find youâ€™ve gone again.
Hi cut-out-and-keepers! I enjoy writting poetry and I think many of you do to considering everyone here is artistic. I thought it would be fun to make a poetry thread for anyone to post/talk about/or read poetry.
I guess I'll start out with one of my own...
Scales hang heavily judging my evils,
On one side there lays a dream unattained,
Opposite, a dream unattainable.
They teeter as I think about my life;
I regret my plans for the future.
Youth, they all say, is wasted on the young,
But the young become wasted by the world.
Mother and father offer their support,
So supportive that they offered their home!
Adult life, then, must painfully regress,
To old bedrooms with posters of rock bands.
Twin beds call back the children they once held,
Now the only monster that dwells beneath,
Is that of guilt and possibility.
Is it a mistake to want more in life?
So I would love to hear what you guys think about my poem or it would be great if you would share your own. If you're not into writting poetry but you enjoy it, maybe you can share one of your favorite poems?
Come on don't leave me hanging! :)
This is my dog Snoopy when he was only a few weeks old. This is the first picture we ever took of him. He wouldn't hold still so my mom had to hold him with both hands. He stuck his little tongue out and it's now our favorite picture of him.
He passed away about a month ago at the age of 12. :(
I have a little round scar on the right side of my nose. It's only visible if you look really closely. It looks like I had a nose ring but I never did. I have no idea how I got the scar but it's been there since grade school.
I agree with you Michelle swans are evil! I actually think that all big birds are! Especially the ostrich... they have mean eyes. hahaha My friend lives in the country and they have a little hobby farm and right beside the barn there's a little pond and they have two geese that are evil as well. If you try to walk up to the pond or get too close to it they'll start honking at you and chasing you while flapping their wings. They also have turkey's that terrify me! The alpha males will try to corner you, it's horrible. Hahaha
I like pretty eyes - but that's not weird. I'm not a fan of dark eyes... I think it's because my eyes are almost black that I'm bored with the dark eyes. Green is my fav!
I love love love black hair but only if he's pale. There's nothing hotter than a pale guy with black hair and blue/green eyes.
Basically this is the perfect man:
He tends to be a little bit too pretty but he gives a crooked smile, and he clenches his jaw very nicely. Damn he's hot. Hahaha
You could get a taranchula! I wanted to get one but my roomate is teffified of spiders so that was a no-go.
I ended up getting a female syrian calico hamster. Her name is Mo... Short for Mozart. hahaha I agree, she doesn't smell although her cage will smell for a while after she pees and it's still fresh. The little bugger always pees in her cage as soon as I clean it and put her back! But the cage itself doesn't stink if you clean it out nicely. Also, I bought her tons of stuff to chew on and she wont use them but she'll chew on her cage for hours! I bought her a dried and empty coconut shell to chew on and sleep in and she will climb on top of it but she wont go in the thing. I also got her a salt lick and those sticks that are all full of grains and seeds and she wont eat either of them! I don't know what to do to get her to stop chewing on the bar. She's been chewing on it for a year and half in the same spot and now the paint is gone there >< little bugger.
But I got carried away here. Hamsters can be nice pets because they are super cute but you have to work a while on hand taming them so that they wont be afraid and bite.
I was thinking about getting a hedgehog but I read that they can be tricky to care for. I read that they need to be kept at a good temperature at all times and if it gets too cold you should put a heating pad beside the cage or something like that. Also since they run a lot their little feet can bleed AND you have to get them a big, sturdy wheel because they are heavy enough to make the wheel tip over and you shouldn't get them a wheel with gaps because their little legs will fall through the bars and they will hurt themselves.
I would say to get a dwarf rabbit instead. They can be litter trained and since their poop doesn't smell the litter box wont smell like it does for a cat. You can let them out in your house, they live for 14 years and they stay small. My friend has a dutch bunny and he's so adorable I am always tempted to steal him everytime I visit. Hahaha
Omg this thread is turning into "When cute animals attack" hahaha
It reminds me of one time when I was in a pet store and there was this adorable baby poodle for sale. The glass boxes they keep the puppies in has a gap at the bottom to help with air flow, but people usually put their fingers in it and the puppies will lick it or play with it. Anyway, one day I put my finger in there and the little poodle bit me and wouldn't let go. I had to pull my finger back and yank it out of it's mouth and the puppy's razor teeth "shredded" the skin on my finger. It looked so cute but that puppy bit hard! The cuts healed into scratches which stayed red for a couple weeks but it didn't leave a scar.
I'm so with you on the back muscles! I love men's shoulders/shoulder blades. The things that matter to me the most are teeth! They don't have to be perfectly straight because not everyone is able to get braces but they MUST be clean and white. A killer smile gets me every time. The other thing that I love is a strong jaw line and scruff. If he has a nice jaw with a bit of a beard I melt. hahaha
I have a round scar right under my knee cap from grade school its about the size of the tip of my thumb. It happened when we were playing tag and I was "It". I ran towards someone to tag them and since there were small playground pebbles on the pavement I slipped backwards, on the way down my right knee went up and scrapped against the brick wall of the school. When I pulled up my pant leg there was a big chunk of skin missing and it was bleeding.
I also have a small scar on my right thumb from my bike when I was young. I fell over when learning how to ride and the way I fell my thumb got caught on the handle and it ripped the skin.
I have a small round scar on my lower back (the tramp-stamp area hahaha) from chicken pox.
I also have a scar on the bottom of my left foot from the prolonged use of liquid nitrogen. That stuff really hurts!
I'm not good at sewing and I bet Sheila will be of much more help than I can be but maybe you can remove the zipper and make the back a corset to give you more room. You can either add fabric to open V or you can leave your back open.
to go for these looks:
My mom has just sprung it on me that she has a crazy hat day tomorrow at her work. The winner gets a cash prize and she kinda wanted to participate.
I was thinking about making a dinner plate theme hat with bacon and eggs or something but I dont know how to go about making it.
Help please :)
I've never had a boyfriend either. I've had a lot of guy friends that were classmates and co-workers but I've never met anyone who interested me that way. I've seen a lot of my friends feel so desperate for a boyfriend that they would date the first a-hole that came along and nothing good came from it. So my advice is to be true to yourself, don't get hung up on things and let things happen when they happen. Don't force it. I'm not the kind of person that settles so I didn't want to waste my time dating a guy who didn't do it for me just because he was there and interested. Call me picky but I want the real thing - whenever it comes along.
So don't worry, you're not the only one!
No unfortunately they don't. hahaha
Last night while the entire family was walking around in puddles I had to laugh at the situation. What's done is done so there is no use crying about it and if you think about it it's pretty funny.
The best part was that he was going to try to get rid of the water alone without us knowing probably because he was embarrased. So when I was upstairs with my mom he came up the stairs and I noticed that his shirt was a bit wet so I asked "Why are you wet?" and he said "Oh, it's nothing... Do we have a sqeegee?" and that's when we went down there and found the water.
So now we have a good laugh about how only a squeegee was going to fix the water situation.
So I was up all night getting buckets of water out of my basement... We even had to tear up the laminate flooring that we installed just a couple years ago.
The worst part of it is that my basement is extremely sound and dry and has never had any flooding problems before last night AND the flood was caused by a family member!
So last night my father was watching TV in the basement while doing some laundry and he decided to hand wash a few things in the big laundry sink/tub. So he plugged the sink and turned on the water and instead of waiting for it to fill up he went back to our rec. room to continue watching his show. Well he ended up sitting down and he forgot about the huge sink filling up.
I was upstairs with my mom so we didn't know what was going on but he fell asleep on the couch and the water poured out of the sink covering the laundry room (which has big shelves for storage and therefore ruined boxes)with water. The water then travelled into our newly renovaed landing area with floating floors (ruining them)and wetting the bottom of our new drywall. The water then travelled to the other side of our landing to the workbench and into the cold storage pantry. FINALLY it went into the rec.room which has carpet and soaked it considerably before the water touched his feet causing him to wake up!
So we had to borrow a couple shop-vac's, rip up the flooring, vaccum the water, squeegee it to our drain and then vaccum the carpet 4 times. Now we have 2 dehumidifiers set up to get the rest of the moisture out and hopefully we took enough water out of it and it's not going to get that gross wet basement smell because of it. If it does then we will have to rip out the carpet as well.
So after working hard for hours last night to get water out of our leak free basement all that is left to do now is wonder what the hell he was thinking when he started water walked away to watch TV again and then fell asleep.
I love love love Mr. Bean! I've watched him growing up and we have all of his movies/shorts on VHS. The latest Bean movie wasn't a great as I expected but it was alright.
I was able to catch some very old specials of Rowan Atkinson on TV one night doing his stand-up routines and they were hillarious! My favorite was his invisible drumkit.
Here's a Youtube clip of it if you are interested:
I love this thread! I'm Canadian and I find myself saying some of the things you mentioned without really knowing it... My family uses sick as a dog, over the moon, bob's your uncle and a lot of others that I can't think of right now. My friends sometimes ask me what I meant when I come out with some more obscure ones. I thought they were commonly used but I guess they're not.
I get the brit slang for my mom's side of the family (Oh I also say "mum" sometimes in stead of mom, when that happens I usually end up saying "me mum") My grandmother was Irish so she has a lot of strange UK sayings in her vocab these things have rubbed off on my mom and then we grew up saying them. My grandmother used to say "He went arse over kettle" hahahah I always loved that one... Actually I heard a lot of the word "arse". My parents still use it but I've never used that one.
I don't really use a lot of brit "slang" as much as I say things a bit differently then other canadians sometimes... for instance I usually say "I pulled the car into the drive" instead of the canadian "driveway". I was also calling popsicles "ice lollies" for a while but I grew tired of telling people what it meant. I say "I'm going mad" instead of crazy. I also use the word "ace" instead of "cool" or "great". We say "bloody" sometimes when something breaks we will say "the bloody toilet is acting up again". I also say "I'm going to the loo". My grandma also used to call sausages bangers.
So to make this very long story short, I do use some brit slang/sayings but they're very natural in conversation.
Christmas sucks for me as well, I don't have a job yet so I'm broke. All the presents I got are not as big and as nice as I would like them to be. When I had a job I used to give bigger presents away but now I can't afford to... I know it's not about that but it felt good to give my parents and my friends a lot (they are not complaining or anything, my mom even said not to give her anything, but it made me feel good.) This year all of the gifts I bought come up to less money than 1 I would buy any other year! Also, I'm not in post secondary school anymore and my friends are all off in university for other things now and it seems like their lives are developing and mine is static.
So now that my pity-party is done the whole point of me posting is to say to try to get the magic back in it! I find that getting excited about chirstmas (even if you have to force it at first) really does make you excited after a while AND smiles are contagious so the more you smile the more people around you will smile!
I asked my dad and he said the Hyundai Accent is better than the ford Fiesta.
I love little beetles too! I wanted one when I was younger because they are so cute but I now I prefer mini coopers... I dont know why... lol I love the little coopers with the union jack on them! (Even if I'm not British)
