A sense of humour...

is key...

I came across a couple videos the other day... For lack of a better adjective, he is adorable...
 

 
(A sense of humour with beautiful eyes, which I may have mentioned before, is even better.)

So does a sense of humour win out over looks? When I was considerably younger, this wasn't necessarily the case, as evidenced by an interest in Tom Cruise at the very beginning of his career. This got me to thinking... At my age now, with whom would I rather sit on a couch and have a conversation? Tom Cruise or a guy that makes you laugh...
 


 
Funny thing is that I've never watched "The Family Guy" or "Ted", but I had started a post a few months ago about some upcoming movies that caught my attention, which included this.

Nothing and everything...


The title of this post is the answer to the question, "What does this have to do with me?"


(YouTube views 63,136.)

"Since when does a terror organization get a voice and a seat in the United Nations?"
 
"Instead of choosing life, they celebrate death. A culture that celebrates martyrdom and murder is a culture that will always be at war with itself and with its neighbours."
 
You know, it is strange how things go full circle. Even though I have no specific memories from certain times in my life, I do know that a thirteen year old girl in Canada who watched the news over three decades ago would not be surprised by this.

Because Canada


This is from a few years ago and I may have posted it before, but...

Because I said so...

(Because someone on Facebook posted it.)

What if...

that natural human thirst for knowledge is what fuels you, and your mind absorbs and accumulates a myriad of information about a variety of subjects, none of which pertain to each other nor serve a purpose in your existence? What if that natural human thirst for knowledge doesn't exist in you, and your mind filters and discards any information accumulated over time which does not pertain to your existence? What if you end out your days sitting alone in a dark room and you realize that it didn't matter ... at all.

What if that one thing that makes you want to reach out and hold on, wasn't meant for you?

One of those kinds of times, not quite like this... maybe a touch of that...

Isn't it funny...

 ... how some things seem to align...
 


 
(Three quotes via Facebook that I had saved on a couple different days last week, but didn't realize the connection between them until just now.)

Doldrums...

.... for lack of a better word.

Oh ... wait...

Silent, still, stagnant, stale, stifling, shrivelling...

It is at times like this that you truly feel how insignificant and small that you are. I almost couldn't breathe.

Waitaminute...

 
When I first saw this, I thought to myself... "Yes"... 
 
 
Now that I have it sitting here to post on the blog, it got me to thinking... It was in the Facebook feed, but I didn't post it there, I saved it for the blog. Why? Because I've never MET anyone who "gets" me, and this was probably one of the reasons that I decided to start a blog in the first place. This thought then prompted me to search the archives for posts pertaining to "fitting in". I went down the list, reading a few, and then... this... I was a bit taken aback, and it elicited a rather unexpected emotional response. My memory continues to fail, and I had forgotten that I had shared something of such a personal nature here. To blog or not to blog, herein lies the answer.

Shouldn't it have been the other way around?
