Back From A Trip

Me and Chhaya got back from a trip yesterday.....we were gone for several days and I didn't bring my laptop. I have a bunch of pics from our trip, that was GREAT but I have to do a bunch of errands today and I want to write an entry about the Russian presidential election that takes place tomorrow. So the pics from my trip have to wait. Here are two though.
I found out that even I can run for President of Russia, all I have to do is to live there for at least 10 years. Sounds perfect.....I will take over after my Volodya (Putin).
Driving to the destination.....



And after we arrived.



Time For A Bath



Today it was time for a bath - a doggy bath.
Here are Chhaya and Senna. Senna is Chhaya's new friend....
Getting a bath is not Chhaya's favorite thing to do but she is a very good girl that lets me wash her.







Now she smells good and is sleeping on the couch. She needs to rest from her busy day.

International Women's Day

Here we are again...it is March 8 and that means International Women's Day. It IS a very important day because women were considered second class citizens subpar to men not too long ago in the world we consider the civilized world and women are still treated as second class citizens in many parts of the world today. So yes.....a day like today where we highlight and bring forward that women still struggle is needed and important.
I am definitely for women all the way. That does not mean that I agree with everything some women do and how some act but I am for women's rights all the way.
I am an adult (unwillingly, because in many ways I am still like a child) and since childhood Pippi Långstrump has been my role model. Pippi is a GREAT role model for girls because she is independent and strong. I roll around with Pippi on the dashboard of my car and a Pippi wallet in my purse. I don't need a "nice" wallet....my Pippi wallet made of now faded fabric is what represents me the best.
If you are looking for a quiet, non opinionated, timid, nodding yes in agreement to everything you say and do kind of girl then keep on looking cause I ain't it.



The person that initiated a special day for women in 1910 was a German woman, Clara Zetkin. These are the kind of people I look up to......people that made (and currently make) a positive and meaningful change in the world.
This is a poster from 1914 Germany, bringing up voting rights for women. Women obtained the right to vote in all the US states in 1920. Sweden was a year before that. And Poland 1918.



And a poster from 1932 Soviet Union, illustrating lifting women up from their second class citizen status.


Trump's Gal Pal



Trump's "gal pal" Stormy Daniels is scheduled to make an appearance in my neck of the woods. I am definitely going to try to take a pic with her, who knows maybe Tati News will be able to score an interview with Stormy? Better than a sit down with Barbara Walters for sure! I am kind of excited over this. But let's not get too excited.....a lot can happen between now and May.
I read that Stormy (real name Stephanie) is suing Trump, now claiming that the nondisclosure agreement they supposedly agreed upon after a monetary exchange of $130 000 was paid to Stormy by one of Trump's attorneys, is not valid because it was not signed by Trump.
If you do not know who Stormy is you don't follow the news, which is fine.....just look her up on Wikipedia or continue reading this blog. I am more than happy to educate you on everything you need to know.
My immediate thoughts on this entertaining American soap opera.....has Melania showed Donald some old school Eastern European rage yet? Preferably using the frying pan or the bread roller, my personal to go tools for beating men. A nice sturdy wooden Swedish clog will do the job too. Or is she just giving him the cold shoulder shooting him icy glares with those mean eyes......biding her time until she files for divorce? Or is this in Trump's own words FAKE NEWS and completely fabricated by Stormy?
Let's see.....Trump was married to Ivana which he cheated on with Marla (he supposedly had many affairs while married to Ivana). Ivana gave him three children and he has one with Marla. Then he got with Melania and she have birth to Barron. I definitely think that Trump used to be quite the ladies man, he was not a bad looking after all when he was younger.
One more thing, $130 000 is not that much money. Stormy should had insisted on another zero to be added into that amount. Who was her financial advisor back then? She should had told him, "You're FIRED."
Now let's talk a bit about Bill Clinton, another ladies man that famously romanced a young Monica Lewinsky back in the day. Monica did an interview for Vanity Fair which I think is very good and she brings up many valid points. Monica was shunned and laughed at back then. Had this affair happened today I think she would had been lifted up in a positive way for coming forward. Plus many were making fun at her appearance as well. What is wrong with Monica I have to wonder? She looks rather attractive to me in comparison to the average woman out there.
Here is a link to the interview,
https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/02/monica-lewinsky-in-the-age-of-metoo

Bill is not doing too bad. I am sure the ladies still love him. And Hillary stuck with him through it all. I did write something about this back in October 2016 when people were angry over Trump's "grab them by the pussy" comment.
I wrote, "OK.....now all the sexual assault allegations and Trump's private conversation about grabbing pussy. Am I offended personally? NO. Women are objectified pretty much everywhere. Look around you. We live in a culture where porn is easily accessible. That men watch porn even when they are married or in committed relationships is socially accepted and women should just be OK with it. It is "normal" right?"
"What we do know for sure is that Bill Clinton got busy with Monica Lewinsky in the White House while married to Hillary. There have been several women accusing him of sexual assault as well and Hillary still stayed with him. Does that mean she thinks cheating and sexual assault is OK? I mean, she stayed with him. So she condones this behavior then and she is running for president of the United States? Monica Lewinsky says that she isolated herself, felt suicidal and depressed after the whole Bill affair. I believe her. The public turned on her, made fun of her.
Oh yeah.....called her fat and ugly. Did Hillary care about that? That her husband caused another person to feel this way? Did she reach out to Monica or any of the other women that accused Bill of sexual assault?"
Here is a link to the whole blog entry, read it.....it is BRILLIANT.
http://fargosisters.com/serendipity/archives/2820-Second-Debate.html

I say a lot of stuff that could be taken as "offensive" when I am with my friends.
Whatever.....I joke around a lot. I like to laugh and I talk a lot. I don't mean all of it. After all, actions speak louder than words.
Well, that was all for today folks. Here I am typing away on my laptop. I rather read and write than talk to annoying people in various stages of intoxication any day of the week.
Or annoying people in general.




National Pancake Day

Last Tuesday (February 27) was National Pancake Day and who doesn't like pancakes? I like mine thin and preferably served with real whipped cream. So I had some pancakes on the actual National Pancake Day but I had them at a restaurant and I had a short stack of blueberry pancakes.....but yesterday I got made from scratch pancakes with some real whipped cream served to me. ❤️ Pancakes are best enjoyed in the comfort of your home, where you can curl up on the couch, under a soft blanket while wearing your most comfortable pajamas and eat until you can't eat anymore. That is exactly what I did.





I got the Grimm's fairy tales, I loved Sleeping Beauty when I was little. Plus many more. I am looking forward to reading the whole book. And then I came across an interesting beer bottle that I got only because of it's interesting name.



Chhaya posing and looking pretty.



Yuzuru & Alina

I did not watch a lot of the Winter Olympics in South Korea. But GO Norway and Germany for all the gold! GREAT job!
What I know though is that Japan's Yuzury Hanyu must be the cutest guy on the planet. He is perfect! He is human mixed with fairy. I kind of think that the Japanese are the most perfect people on the planet, there is something special about them for sure. Alina Zagitova is a great example of Easter European grace and beauty. I know Putin must be proud.
Yuzuru & Alina are my fave 2018 winter Olympians.



The bullshit that came out of the American figure skaters in some interview is just embarrassing......you simply can't compare them to such talent as Alina. They should just go back home to the US, get some of that much needed sleep, cry to Mommy, go eat at McDonald's and work on their skills.
But what I really hope comes out of 2018's Olympic games in Pyeongchang is some form of a positive development in North Korea and the rest of the world. North Korea.....seriously. I feel bad for the people that live there, it is time for a change for them.
I just finished my breakfast and now I am about to start this Sunday.



Hairball

I coughed up a hairball the other day. A nice sized one too.....LOOK!



With this much hair accumulating in the tub drain every few months I kind of wonder how come I am not bald yet? WTF.
I can't believe how much hair that is. I could make a wig out of it. I definitely have much thinner hair than what I used to have, I used to have really nice hair (looking at pics from years ago I realize this now). Now it is long still but not as nice. And I need a trim. And today is hair washing day. I wash my hair every three days or so, sometimes once a week. It all depends on what my plans are for that week.
This is my latest food obsession, lavender yoghurt. SO YUMMY! I discovered it last week and now I crave it all the time.



Besides this.....I just thoroughly enjoyed an extra hot vanilla latte and a pastry. It snowed even more and I need to drive around in this weather and do some errands. After that I am taking Chhaya out and then I might have time to squeeze in a gym visit. Then I have to wash my hair and get ready and cute because I am going out tonight. YEAY!
It is Saturday and the sun is shining outside and inside my heart. I hope YOU have a nice weekend!

It Snowed

So it finally snowed a bit and the snow did not melt away yet. Perhaps I can ski to the coffee shop tomorrow?



Besides the groundbreaking news that it snowed in my neck of the woods.....I just got back from work. One thing I can say about myself, I can find something funny to laugh about at work every night. I cannot be bored at work, I just can't sit there and be bored. I get a restless feeling inside like I am about to burst out of my skin. I either have to read a magazine or read something on my phone, OR I get loud and sing or come up with something funny, according to me. Because at work I have ADD and Tourette's. Some girls walk around super serious like they have a stick up their ass, zero humor, trying to be sexy or something. Playing "the role". Then they ONLY smile and look alive when talking to the guys in there. WTF? No happiness otherwise? Only around men? SO lame and barf. Those girls probably think that I am annoying and immature, in turn I think they are pathetic because only some guy/s they don't even know can make their mouth turn into a smile. Did I laugh tonight? You bet. At my own humor. None of that fake smile crap. I do have moments at work when I don't want to and won't look at the people in there because I feel annoyed or moody but that feeling usually goes away.....but I can't be fake. Fake is probably more lucrative but I just can't do it. It's not me. I don't like fake people in general. Because of the simple fact that they are FAKE.
Here is an example of my humor, fresh from tonight. A group of guys came in, one of them got put on stage because it was like his bachelor party or something. He was given a t-shirt and then they wanted us all to write something on the shirt. I would never write anything sexual, can you guess what I wrote?



Then I got the brilliant idea to dribble some cranberry juice on a pad (as in period pad) that I got from the dressing room and I taped the pad to the shirt. That is FUNNY! And then I sold the pad, for $2. Perhaps I should be selling autographed soaked period pads? Now there is a difference between being funny and being gross. Funny is when you joke around and laugh etc. Here are some examples of gross, in my opinion. Letting go of loud, long wet sounding farts while spreading your butt cheeks apart in a packed dressing room. Letting guys touch you in hopes to make more $ in a non touching club. Sucking on random guys beer bottles several times a night simulating BJ's. That's GROSS. I am funny (I think) but not gross.
Plus there is a time and place for everything. I definitely know how to "behave" when needed.
Speaking of fake. At work I glue on fake lashes. So I usually wear the Ardell 105 but I found some new ones that I am excited to try... Ardell 152 with tapered tips. They are the ones on the right. Then a friend of mine that is a hair dresser told me about grey drops. I never heard about grey drops before. Have you? She also told me to rinse out the color with as cold water as I can stomach so the hair cuticles close and wait 48 hours before shampooing, if possible. So I got this Gray Magic by Ardell.
Oh yes, I color my hair and I match my color. I started getting grey hair when I was about 18 (a sign of high intelligence as we all know ;-) ) and according to Wikipedia, "Changes in hair color typically occur naturally as people age, eventually turning the hair gray and then white. This is called achromotrichia. Achromotrichia normally begins in the early to mid-twenties in men and late twenties in women. More than 60 percent of Americans have some gray hair by age 40. The age at which graying begins seems almost entirely due to genetics. Sometimes people are born with gray hair because they inherit the trait."
It is what it is. I don't want grey hair so I color it (usually every two months or so, I am too lazy to color every 9 days like Jennifer Lopez says she does). I don't have grey hair all over my head but in certain areas. So next time I color I will try the grey drops. And that is as fake as it gets with me, lashes and hair color. Everything else is natural.



Now I have to call my bank in Sweden.....sometimes making a phone call is like the most difficult task ever. It's only a phone call but feels like a huge chore. Then I am going to sleep. My eyes are getting tired and closing on me.....

Valentine's Day Recap

Here is a recap of my Valentine's Day for you (in case anyone is curious).....I woke up around 9 am and went to look for a cupcake for my little cupcake Desi. Then I went over her house and left a small present. After that it was latte time, I wore a pink shirt and pink and grey leggings by PINK Victoria's Secret. I love PINK. And some lady sitting next to me liked my outfit too because she complimented me on it.



Then I walked Chhaya. Here is her paw print that she made at PetSmart last weekend.



Chhaya posing with her art.....looking beautiful as always.





In the afternoon I went to the movies with someone. Saw Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri . That movie has some great reviews and several people I know said it was soooooo good. Me....I was like MEH. The acting is great but as far as a movie goes, I thought it was OK/good but not great. Not like the Guillermo del Toro movie I saw around Christmas, that is more my style of movie.



In the evening I made Swedish pancakes for dinner with strawberry and raspberry jams and whipped cream. I shared the pancakes with someone special. Ate six pancakes and felt full.



❤️ XOXO ❤️ from me.



Natto & Gym

I had nattō yesterday, my first time! My brother loves nattō but I did not try it with him when I saw him last, he enjoyed it by himself while I watched. It is a traditional Japanese food that is very nutritious. Nattō is actually the richest food source of natural vitamin K2. I will definitely eat it again.



I also joined the gym....it is time to get in shape. Somewhat at least. I barely exercised all of 2016 and the first half of 2017.....but that is in the past. And that feels good.



Now I want some new gym clothes. I think Puma or Lululemon should sponsor me. DUH.....clearly they should!
;-)
