A Penny

A penny  …Remember when a penny  was a useful thing  ? When it was actual currency  ? When  you could take your penny and go and buy things like sweets with it  ,and often if  you did some chores you could be paid with a penny , that’s where the term , the correct term for to ” spend a penny  ”  came from  you went to spend your penny after you had been paid with it  . How or where the other meaning of  spend a penny even started  I have no idea  but it seems the new term is here to stay and gives us a giggle now and then .

Now  if you say to someone  ” A penny for your thoughts  ” let me tell you right here and right now that does not work , as we no longer have pennies  anymore we cannot use them even this way , so instead we need to come into the 20th century  and make it at least $2  for your thoughts  now and even at that  I think it’s too cheap . Why ? …because  some people’s thoughts are so good  they are worth  way more than a measly $2  , but others  ? …lol now that’s a whole new can of worms right there  , but we don’t want any worms right now as we are not going fishing  . Guessing now that most know what  I mean by that , some people have such  stupid and erratic thoughts  you wonder at them all the time  so they are surely only worth a penny  …even that is too expensive  with some  ..

Also  when we think of the term ” that is worth a pretty penny ”  sorry that too is now out of date , you need to upgrade that to maybe $5  , who knows these days  ? With things having changed so much and values of money  and many other things going down  the toilet  these days  , things that were once worth a penny are now more than likely worth at a rough guess $5 …So think of all the things and sayings  we used the penny for , now by rights we should sit down  and re-think  all those things , get out the calculator  and work out the new prices just to be fair. I mean we have to be fair  now don’t we  ? We would be the first to go crook if we got diddled even for just a penny  wouldn’t we  ? No-one likes to be cheated , not  even for a penny pretty or otherwise ..

Now here is a question for you  … Remember  ” Penny wise pound foolish ”  errrm how do we  re calculate that  ? What sums do we use to even begin to work it out ? How do we get the right  number ? lol I am no mathematician   but I guess someone has the way to find the right number so we don’t go ripping ourselves off . To me as far as  I am concerned  1 + 1 =11  now do not tell me that is wrong coz as far as  I’m concerned it is right  ..lol..so there  🙂  Also who made up this  saying as well  ? I know it wasn’t me but someone did , someone had too much time on their hands  in the first place to work it out. We need to keep these people  busy so they don’t have time to inflict all these sayings on us that we eventually have to bring up to date  then we save ourselves a lot of messing about .this is not the messing about  I want to be caught up in …lol…

So anyway no more saying  ” a penny for your thoughts  ” anymore it is out of date and out of time so up your game and get it right , lol and let me know what you call it now  so I know what the updated version of this is . Just know there is someone out there who knows what it should be , but no one has let me in on it yet  and they need to  so I can be updated too  ..lol..  Nothing worse than being out of date with things , it does make things quite  awkward  if you are out of date  , so go on get on with it  … it is like trying to run win98  in this day and age …it does not compute  ….it does not compute …

Really it is a pity you can no longer spend a penny coz  I have some in a piggy bank that can no longer even be cashed in , most places  will not accept coins at all now in currency exchange …piggy bank ?? lol now there is a subject for another day  how , where when and why did they come into exsistance  ?? Might be interesting to work out that little conundrum  1 day  when not so busy  …lol  might be fun ..

 

Why settle for being difficult when with a little extra effort, you can be downright impossible?

Enchantingly beautiful, with a dash of mentally unstable, a spoon full of humour, a slice of crazy,contagious smile and a cup of awesome. Yep that describes me.!!  ok ok  stop laughing  !!!

Birds

Birds  … they are everywhere you look , they flutter about  , they preen  and fluff themselves up , get ticked off if you mess up their  nests , they protect themselves like  anything  and you better look out you do not get in the way . There is nothing more noisy and fluttery than a messed up bird  so watch out  you are not the 1 who messes them up , make sure to give them plenty of distance . Birds can be  very , very pretty  or very , very ugly , they  can be  noisy or they can be quiet , some you don’t even notice  unless you accidently come across them when in your travels , usually these nice quiet ones are the ones that don’t look so flighty and have way more personality .Whatever you do, do not under any circumstance mess with their mates or you will open up a whole new world of pain , more than you can imagine .

Some of these birds have the most wonderful looking nests while others have a very plain and very functional  nest , each type of bird has what it needs to get on and it protects it and itself  very fiercely  so again keep out of the way if you want to stay in 1 piece . The way these birds dress up their nests says a lot about them , if the nest is all pretty and full of flouncy bits and bobs usually they are themselves like that will all the colour  they can put on themselves and the places they live and also the places they go to are the same .Go into a plain birds nest and all you will see just what is absolutely needed and nothing more  , no extra cover nothing extra pretty just what is needed   to do whatever it is they need to do .Also with these ones do not mess with their mates or it will be the same , a lot of pain .

These  birds also differ in how they treat family  and friends , the bright , flouncy , loud ones are always  found in places  that are like that too and they all flock to the same places to have meetings and share food and drink etc. Whereas the plain birds tend to be much quieter and will not gather as much and surely not in the loud , noisy, colourful places of the others . They do seem however to be able to accomplish the same things just not with so much noise and brightness    they just settle down , communicate and get on with things no mess , no fuss, no nothing  and  Bobs your uncle all sorted . They also have a really good family connection too , so again do not mess with it if you value your own life .

Looking at birds makes you wonder who ever looked at a woman 1 day and decided she looked like a bird  ? What ? You thought  I was talking about the feathered variety  ? lol  now where did  I say that ? Thinking on it  though lol there are so many similarities  between the 2 species I can almost see how someone  decided they were the same , lol the  human kind of bird can be equally  as noisy , colorful , full of flight as our lovely feathered ones , they too can be just as protective of  themselves and all around  them  so yes easy to make the comparison  and  I bet a few people would like to be able to put some of them in a cage to keep them out of the way …lol…Polly want a cracker  ?? I am sure at times  the feathered variety are way more nice than the others  .

Getting back now to the main question , who gave women that name , and how did it take on so well ? So well that women are called birds in a lot of countries now , sometimes in  fun sometimes not , but where did it all start ? I mean really you looked  at a few women and then you say , hmmmm looks like a bird , sounds like a bird , so it must be a bird ?  Looked at the way they behave , dress, feed , drink and said yep must be a bird  , lol got me wondering , yes  i know there are a lot of similarities but really  ? Yes birds come in all shapes and sizes , all colours and personalities , both feathered  and the other variety  but still  really ? Birds  ? I give up lol  sometimes I do prefer the feathered variety  they are so much nicer and seem to care more about their own than the so called human kind ….give me them anytime  they are much easier to get on with …I will always wonder where it all started  but oh well  …lol  you get that  ..

Men are like medicine, they come with side effects….

I’ll never find anyone else like you,thank goodness for that!!!

Less is More

Less is more   and it is amazing  how many times this proves to be the case , we don’t realise it at the time we are getting all this stuff together  that we feel we really  ” must ”  have . We  must have the best of the best , we must have the latest  edition of whatever it is we are chasing at the moment , it must have all the bells and whistles  it must  be the exact thing  or we don’t  want it . The more we allow ourselves to be like  this the more the big companies love  it as it puts more and more money in their  pockets  and that is what they  want more than anything else.

What they do not want us to learn is that we do not need everything to be updated continually , they do not need to be renewed  what seems to be every  5 mins. Listen  to them and they will have you spending  more and more money  to keep a level of upgrade  going  that they want you to do. They do not want you to realise that the new phone  you got , the new computer you had , the  new kitchen appliance or the new  TV  , will actually last more than 5 mins.  you really do not have to keep getting the new model or else . They hate it when you do find out that …hey wait a min. here   these things are still working fine so why do I need to get rid of a perfectly working product ?

When you look at it too a lot of the things they tell us we  ” must ” have we really do not even need , I mean  ok you have a TV it works good but you can’t do all these extra bits they  say it now needs to do , they now have so many additives  that they are hardly like a normal TV anymore , but if we do not  want it to be any more than a  TV  why do we need to get rid of it just to have the newest thing  ? There is also computers, they are forever making them bigger and better  , just like the  TV’s , then talk you into needing  the upgrades , they make it sound like it’s life or death if you don’t upgrade the very min. they say you should . The worst of all these devices is  the mobile phone , it seems there is something bigger and better for them every 2 mins  rather than 5 , it is just amazing  and what is more amazing  is that people cannot seem to wait t get the so called improved gadget and they line up for days sometimes to get them .

Me personally I couldn’t  care less about all these so called upgrades as long as it does what I bought it for in the 1st place then I don’t want to be  spending money for the sake of it  just because some big wig  millionaire  who owns a big store  says  I need to . These days it is just about everything  we use they have now made upgradeable , to phones , to TV’s, to  fridges , to washing machines , doesn’t matter what ,now it seems everything  must be upgraded  or else. Then there is the motor car , man have they changed over the years  now they can even drive themselves  ….good grief …no thanks that is 1 thing I  do not like   but yes now they can . Give me  the cars  we had  before they started playing about and putting computers in them  , that to me was the time they got worse not better , if they broke down then it was usually a simple and cheap thing to fix it , but now it’s next to impossible  to fix them yourself or cheaply even if  you can find the parts  you need .

The old IT concept of ” turning it off then  on again ” these days has meaning for so many things that are not computers at all but have computers  in them  making them more and more expensive to fix and to run. Seems they can computerise anything these days  , hate to  say it but that also includes  people * shudder * The troubling  thing is we sit back and let it happen and say nothing  , we let them do what they want to  and they love it . As for me all I want is a phone that makes  calls,  a fridge that keeps my food cold, a freezer that freezes , a TV that  is  just a  Tv  and a car that is just a car that you can run without needing  to be a computer tech  to be able to run it , a stove that cooks the food , used to love the old wood burning stoves they were great to cook on  but now  we must protect  the trees  you can’t go and cut them down …..sheeesh … I give up  …it does not compute….it does not compute ….it does not compute ..

We Should Have Come With Zips

We should have come with zips …fair dinkum the amount of times we or someone we know has to have an operation , and you know what that means  , the docs get their trusty little scalpels out  have a giggle and say right, now  I gotcha! lol  no not really but it can feel like that sometimes when you have to have more than 1 op . First  they knock you out , then they  draw nice little lines all over you then they  cut into  your unresisting  body  and do whatever it is they have you there for , and you just lay there out to it  trusting them . Almost every time that trust is rewarded as these docs do brilliant jobs and save many , many lives by knowing what to do when , as  I myself know from  experience .This is in no way saying that we should  not trust the docs as they are for the  most part excellent .

Now what if , lol , and this is a big if  ,we had zips ? Doc could  just come in , knock you out , unzip  you, do what needs to done , job done !   Doc would be able to relax sooner , and not have to take so much time over the cutting and stitching , lol, what a breeze ! He could have more time to himself  to spend with family or girlfriends, or play sport or something . He would not be tied down so much as all the cutting and stitching  takes a lot of time  and even the patient  would be up and about  a lot quicker  . All you would have to do maybe is keep the zip well lubricated  so it zips and unzips really smoothly . What you would use I have no idea but  I am sure someone would come up with a good lube ….lol  shut it you people  who have minds in gutters now , not that sort of lube thank you ….sheesh …

Look at how many things we do have already that have zips in them , bags of all sizes , no not women either you mean ones …sheesh … I mean the bags you carry with you to put things in , you know like wallets  and purses and suit cases  etc. Then there are all the clothes we wear , or almost wear …sheesh some people … but even just trousers  1 of the things we wear almost constantly  they have zips , and of course there are dresses and skirts and shorts  and …and…you geddit ….zips and  more zips …all being used every day in so many ways  all very useful , making things a lot easier for us. I am pretty sure if we suddenly had no zips we would not be happy , as a lot of zips keep a lot of things hidden from public eye  ( phew thank goodness for that )  lol …

We all know I am sure some people  who should have zips for lips   lol , but no not those kind of zips either no matter how tempting it would be . some people would never be allowed to unzip them  , lol , pollies for a start with all their lies . Anyway those are not the kind of zips  I mean , the ones I mean would actually be helpful  to a lot of people , and make things a lot easier . Unfortunately  we do not come with zips , though I still think it would help a lot , we don’t  but imagine if you will just how many of the ops done that have to be done on the main part of the body  would be made that much easier if we could just be unzipped  for them . Have no idea what you do about the rest of the body  lol  but a zip in main part would sure cut down surgery time and recovery time  , and that  I am sure would be great for all . Doctors  I am afraid  you will just have to keep doing  all the work the hard way …sorry  no zips …no ..lube…no nothing new …dammit … lol..

 

ME:: what do you want for your birthday? HUSBAND: Not much just a radio with a sports car around it.
