Oh My! 7 things about myself

My dear friend Sascha, creator of coffee and heels, nominated me to an award. The challenge is to tell you, wonderful friends, 7 things about myself...aaaaahhhh! I decided to make them personal and some are kinda embarrassing hehe. Are you ready?? Enjoy!

1. I am scared of the dark and spook easily!

    Yes, since my childhood I do not like the dark. It could have something to do with the fact that my imagination runs wild. If I'm in a room and you turn off the light, and I can't get out when I want to, I panic -- big time! I also get spooked ridiculously easy. Honestly, you don't even have to try that hard, all you have to do is talk in a normal tone with me and the slightest change I jump..hehe

2. I am paranoid that my zipper is open so I check it constantly :-)


    When I was in 3 or 4th grade I performed (mimed Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You) at the school's talent show (that should have been embarrassing enough but no!!) After I was done all my friends told me how awesome I was until these 2 guys, one year older than me, walked up to me and said: "hey, great job but are you aware of the fact that your fly was open during the whole performance? And it still is?" I was mortified!! To add salt to the wounds I wore all black with white panties -- eek. So now every time I wear jeans or pants with a zipper, I always check em before leaving my house and throughout the day.

3. I have a hard time eating in front of a guy I like


 (with my luck that would end up in my nose)

    If you wanna ask me out on a date and I accept you should know I hate going out to dinners for a first date. I do not know the reason why I have a very hard time eating in front of my dates but I do. It could be because my nose starts running whenever I eat anything! According to a doctor I am one of those "blessed" people who has "taste buds" in my nose and as soon as I eat something I like it starts running (read drooling haha) but no worries, it's not in a gross way, just sounds like it haha. Or it could be because I am paranoid food will get stuck between my teeth and my date is too kind not to say anything or maybe even worse, he does say something (mortified!). Perhaps it is because I have to run to the bathroom as soon as I am done eating (my digestive system is awesome!!) and I have a hard time visiting public toilets (ok for number 1 but NEVER for number 2). Or maybe because I am VERY clumsy!! Yes, all girls say they are clumsy but trust me, I am! Ooor maybe it is all these reasons combined.

4. I cannot stand smacking or any annoying noises especially when eating

    If there is anything that bothers me when eating it is to listen to someone smacking while chewing. Makes my skin crawl. Another annoying noise is when people draw the utensil between the teeth -- it has the same effect as drawing nails on a blackboard aaaaaaaaa


5. I LOVE sweets!!
    I am so grateful to be living in a country as Sweden where the candy is to die for and the pastry is perfect! During summer there is nothing better than a soft ice cream..yum! I refuse to give all this up no matter what!!

6. I am scared of the dentist
    
Yes, it is true. I am a grown woman but just thinking about the dentist makes me sweat and dread the day I have to go. Having a sweet-tooth and fear of dentist is not a good combination. Not at all! I fear everything from the waiting room to the dental chair and the tools :-(

7. I get really bitchy when I am hungry and when food is almost ready I automatically eat something sweet!

    If I am hungry and no food in sight the result is; me being a total bitch! I am not kidding. I have snapped, yelled, rolled my eyes, make snotty comments, etc -- not a nice person at all haha. When I am cooking or someone else is cooking and it is almost ready I look for something to eat (no part of the food that I am cooking because I don't like it when people start touching the food I am preparing or tasting it) -- S. always made fun of me for that hehe she always knew when the food was done, I started looking for something sweet :-D



That is it. Thank you for reading :-D
Here are some of the blogs I think should be nominated for serving my interest in various ways:

AnnaWii

Until later my friends!!!

Without You

Watched the latest Glee episode and I really loved all the songs, especially Lea Michele's version of "Without You". After going to Youtube.com to listen to the original by David Guetta ft Usher, I stumbled upon these two amazing men doing a cover. J Rice and Daniel De Bourg hit it outta the ballpark with this cover. I thought you guys could listen to all 3 versions and see which you like most, if you can make that choice :-)








Until later lovelies

SOPA bill

It has been brought to my attention that there is a controversial bill trying to pass, SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). According to news.cnet.com "It allows the U.S. attorney general to seek a court order against the targeted offshore Web site that would, in turn, be served on Internet providers in an effort to make the target virtually disappear. It's kind of an Internet death penalty."

Click this link or this link to learn how this bill will affect you.

For all you who enjoy streaming, listening to music, and find info on, say, wikipedia, will be affected and the victims of this battle. The 3 strong supporters are: MPAA, the Recording Industry Association of America, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Understandably, the organizations such as MPAA, Recording Industry Association of America, stand to gain a lot by the passing of this bill as it will "force" music, tv, and film lovers (such as myself) to start paying for all our entertainment. I also understand that the millionaires fear the continuing loss of income as fewer buy CDs, DVDs, and such but hey, here is a thought; STOP RAISING THE COST FOR EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME and people will start buying and pay more from your providers!! It is getting more and more expensive to go to the movies, buy a decent CD/DVD, and so on. Now that the economy is as poor as it is, you will not gain more simply because you remove the entertainment people can actually afford. Instead of getting rid of sites that provide free entertainment, try to come to an agreement where the internet users are not the biggest losers, as we would be if SOPA passes.

This bill does not leave any room for the accused party to protect or defend itself. No right to a fair and quick trial here. This is a typical "David vs. Goliath" scenario, except this time David has no means to defend himself at all and is sure to lose.

The thought behind PIPA and SOPA may have started with well-meaning goals but they are quickly getting dangerously out of control. This bill means that if a website filled with documents but has ONE page that may be infringement, SOPA will allow for the whole website to shut down. If a user uploads something that a company finds to be infringement the whole website will be shut down (think YOUTUBE.com).

I believe it is a direct threat to the First Amendment rights and people need to learn more about this bill. Instead of protecting the rich and large companies we need to look out for the true victims, Internet users and providers. The pro-SOPA organizations claim that thousands of job are affected, so are they claiming that if the SOPA bill passes they will somehow get those jobs back? What about all the people working for YAHOO, GOOGLE, FACEBOOK (even though I cannot stand this social network), YOUTUBE, and so on, what about their jobs?

Are we to step back instead of moving forward in society? This bill means a social online isolation where the US will become its own, online, island. As it is hard to strike sites outside of the US, this bill targets sites within the US and does not allow US members to enjoy the foreign websites that are accused of piracy, thus cutting the strings that are attached to other countries. To alienate yourself in this day and age is not the smartest move by, allegedly, some of the smartest brains in the USA.

Dear readers, go online and research this bill and do what you can to stop it! If we do not do something then it will be the end of the Internet as we know it. If you believe in a cause then speak up to make a change!

Until later my cyber friends

Look alike??? Ya think!

When I saw this video I almost fell off my chair...Needless to say that if Angelina Jolie decides to take a break from work, kids, or anything else this woman can take her place. As long as she doesn't speak the resemblance is eerie!! Check it out and see what you think.



Until later sweet friends!
