A few days ago my Neighbor tried to hook me up with her son

mzQ1Dzf

In order for you to understand this issue, I have to clarify that I live in an apartment building and community life sucks. Yes, it sucks. Half of the people my age who live in this building is unbearable and the other half, I just don’t know them. Note that this boy belongs to the first half…

I guess I should clarify what I consider “unbearable”.

According to the dictionary:

Unbearable: 1 Not able to be borne or endured. Unbearable pain. 2 Intolerable.

According to me:

Unbearable: 1. Person who is said to impose his company against the will of the poor living thing has to stand him. In this case, the mother (my neighbor). 2 We understand it by that annoying person who spent years mistreating others and breaking things in both the hallways and garden of the common areas of the building. In this case, the child (and unfortunately also my neighbor).

Now, since I’ve known the boy it’s been pure and proud hate at first sight. He can’t stand me (I hope) and I can’t stand him. It’s simple, really. In addition, our aversion has never been a secret. We don’t talk, or greet eachother and we definitely don’t wait for the other while we’re in the elevator… we just leave. We are just like oil and water. A cat and a dog (and of course, I’m the cat).

Anyway, I left my house and went downstairs, and stood at the entrance of the building listening to music while waiting for my brother who was coming for me. Then from the building comes this fat lady that always carries this poor chihuahua puppy around (which, incidentally, must flee whenever she goes to sit down, because if she accidentally sits on the dog she kills it). I say good morning out of sheer courtesy, but I don’t even I take my headphones off.

I was not paying attention, but somehow I realized that she was talking to me. So, again out of courtesy, I remove a headphone to hear what he was saying. She was wondering if you had long since the last bus left, I answered no, that the bus had left ​​just two minutes before at most. I was going to return to my music, and wish I had, but I noticed that she was talking about and therefore didn’t put my headphone back. BIG mistake. She began to talk about her son.

As I said before, the whole building knows that that boy and I do not get along. So, before I tell you anymore I should tell you that this was a very one-sided conversation. I should clarify that I have no idea why the hell this lady came up with the idea of talking about the guy. People need to understand that when they start unwanted conversations, they risk ending up on the blog of a creative small (very small) girl like me. And they’ll most likely get mocked mercilessly as I’m doing right now.

Moral: do not impose your presence to anyone or endure the consequences.

I will not say which university he studies in because it doesn’t seem necessary. But I can tell you that the fat lady spent no less than twenty minutes talking about the guy. He wanted to study languages​​, but with his aplication he only managed philosophy. To be able to change, he had to spend X amount of time studying philosophy with I don’t remember what grades… I said I was studying Communications (In spanish, by the way… English isn’t my first language).

She told me that her son had finally managed to get those things, so she said to him “Thomas! This is your chance!” But the guy didn’t want to change because he had discovered that his passion was philosophy. She said he had enrolled in acting classes, he did theater … My response was also did​​.

That he was a good boy, who was helping in the house, she loved him very much … Honestly I was about to say “Well I don’t. So shut up!”.

And then came out of the building came an old lady that started talking to her about something else while including me in the conversation that, again, I didn’t want to be included in. Finally the bus arrived, and with it my brother. I told him what had happened and he told his girlfriend and since then we have the theory that fat lady wanted to hook me up with her son.

I’m afraid she might strike again, so I’ve been avoiding her.

In my house, the fat lady has become legend. Now we can’t see her without thinking of her famous phrase “Thomas! This is your chance!” And she’s obviously the victim of many jokes within the comfort of my home.

Do you understand why nobody should not engage in conversations with strangers?

Their a pain in the butt. And even if your on the other end of the conversation (hence, your the one who started it), then look at my profile picture. Do I look like a crazy maniac who would post an entry on a blog making fun of you? My mom says I don’t… But look at me, here I am. It doesn’t matter if the person has an angels face, there is always the possibility that that person is, like me, a troll.

If you liked my post, give me a Facebook like this sideways to know when I post. You can also follow me on twitter atlugiasempai.

Good night.

EBOLA, SPAIN, THE DOG AND THE MINISTER

ebola-virus

I’m not Spanish, I’ve never gone to Spain. But at home we spend our lives watching Antena3, La Tele and Euronews all day, every day (Yes, I speak spanish). Therefore, know what I mean when I say that there are some programs that are speaking about the Spanish nurse infected with Ebola, Teresa, I a way that I find incorrect and alarmist. Do not misunderstand me, I don’t think they should stop reporting. But I do feel that there are things that needn’t not be informed.

Again, I ask for your full understanding. I don’t think they should stop reporting, but things like if they’re going or not to sacrifice a dog doesn’t seem all that important to me. What was important was whether it may or may not be infected with the disease. I do not deem it necessary to keep the animal alive and risk the person or people who have to take care of the animal (and I say this with all due respect to animal right defenders, because I also think it’s necessary to protect animals from humans. But humans are also important on the planet.).

However, we know little about Ebola and I think that before taking a step to investigate if dogs can get infected or not isn’t the priority when we have a bunch of people in Africa dying while they wait for us to find a cure. After that, if we discover that animals can’t be infected, we could investigate the reason why they cant in order to improve the cure and/or vaccine that’s been already created. Meanwhile, we can not risk a human life for the sake of a dog, sorry.

Another thing that bothers me about the situation is that they’ve been asking the minister to resign.

Let’s see, we need to understand that she wasn’t who gave the course for people to learn how to wear the outfit. She wasn’t there telling Teresa to take the suit off in the wrong order. Those are things that just happen. It’s not the minister’s fault and it certainly is not Teresa’s fault. It’s called human error. It’s like when a child is learning to wipe after using the restroom, at first he will always do it wrong (believe me, I can tell).

The problem here starts when  Teresa and her companions don’t get quarantined after caring for a patient with Ebola. And then it gets worse when she gets to the hospital, presents the case and gets ignored (because that’s what they did, they ignored her)…

Why not put these people in quarantine?

I wish I knew.

Why did they chose to ignore Teresa?

I wish I knew.

In all honesty, I wouldn’t have repatriated a patient with Ebola. And having done so, I would have been much more careful. However, neither the lack of quarantine, or putting the dog to sleep let alone that they ignored Teresa plead to be tested for Ebola is the minister’s fault. Or well, I fail to see how a minister could have the power to take any of these decisions. The hospital, that’s a completely different story. This is their fault.

I do not see why anyone would come to blame Teresa for what’s happening. Think a little, do you really believe that someone (anyone) wants to get infected with Ebola? See, nobody, not even people who are sick to the head, would want to suffer such a death. It’s like deciding to die inside an iron maiden. Illogical.

Finally, I think the news should talk about it only when there is something to tell. Because listening to the same thing every day, does not only stress me, but many. They should talk every two or three days, no more.

This is my opinion. And again, it is just my opinion. If you disagree or want to add something, I invite you to use the comment box. On the other hand, if you like what I write and want to contribute something, like The Moonmedia on Facebook and follow me on twitter to know more about my life.

“MADE IN FRANCE”

DFWfrance

HELLO PEOPLE!

A few days ago I was cheking my twitter and saw a tweet that was… How should I describe it? Ah yes!

Stupid. (Yes, I just used the word stupid on the internet. Sue me.)

Turns out some idiot retweeted the comment and photo posted by… someone. The comment said “I’m moving to France” and if it had just been the comment, no one would criticize… But it turns out that the photo has three mr. steroids with the words Made in France written on her naked chests.

Following this tweet, an idea crossed my head, and I couldn’t help but laugh. When I was little, all my toys said Made in China, and it was not just my toys; the ventilator, phone, TV, computer monitor, TV controler, music player, my game consoles and their games … ALL that said Made in China.

I never said I wanted to go and live in China, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan or whatever my dolls said on thier ass (Although I’m pretty sure it was China…). The anime series are made in Japan and I don’t want to move to Japan. The actor who plays Thor, Chris Hemsworth, one of the most beautiful beings in the world, is Made in Australia and I can assure you that I will not move to Australia.

Ever. (For the curious, I don’t want to live in Australia because my skin is almost albino white and it gets practically insolated with the sunrise… Imagine if, with this color, I had the wonderful idea of ​​going to the beach… I’d get swallowed by a shark… beautiful end, right? “What happened to Luna?” “A shark swallowed her whole.”)

Leaving aside my aversion to the idea of becoming lunch for a white shark ten meters long (Who asid I was exaggerating?)… Just three guys in a photo, with the words Made in France in their chest are no reason to take such a decision. Think of an iPhone, for example. iPhones are Americans, but made in China …

My point is, who can actually assure me that these guys really are French? No one. For all we know this could be a plot, they could be plastic and have a nice mark on their butts that says Made in China.

Good night.

Norse Mythology

CREATION

According to Norse mythology, in the beginning there was neither heaven or earth. There was a single infinite abyss full of mist within which rose a fountain and twelve river whose streams froze once moved away from the source. To the south, the world of light, whose warm winds melted the ice that was formed. Emanating from the seabers were born the giant Ymir and the cow Audhumla. Ymir fed on milk from Audhumla, who in turn, survived licking dew and salt from the ice.

One day while Audhumla ate, a man’s hair became visible through the ice. The next day came the head and on the third day, the rest of the body. This man, without father or mother, was called Bari and had a son (don’t ask me what’s the mother of said child. I don’t know.) called Bor. Bor took Bestla as his wife, she was the daughter of Ymir. Bestla and bor had three sons: Odin, Vili and Ve; three gods. The three gods killed Ymir and from his remains, created the world.

With his body, they made land. And with his blood, the sea. Of his bones mountains and made ​​his hair into trees. With his skull, they made the sky and clouds with his brain. Finally, with his eyebrows, they created Midgard and the rest of the kingdoms. Odin regulated day and night with the moon and the sun, who were chased by the wolves Hati and Scoll respectively. Thus, the universe was complete.

However, it seemed that this universe was missing something. For this reason, they created a man from an ash tree and called him Aske. Then, with an alder created the first woman and named her Embla. After creating the first two humans, the gods granted them certain gifts that his descendants would inherit later. Odin gave them life and a soul; Vili reason and understanding; Ve, finally, gave them feelings, expression and speech.

Aske and Embla were installed in Midgard and from them came all mankind.

THE UNIVERSE

Imagen

Yggdrasil is perhaps the most important part of the Norse world, because it is the tree of the universe that is responsible for holding all it’s kingdoms. These are the eight kingdoms:

Asgard: is the realm of the Aesir, the main race of gods. This connected to the land of the humans through the Bifrost, also known as the rainbow bridge.

Vanaheim: is the realm of the Vanir, the secondary gods. These gods are generally engaged in fertility functions.

Alfheim: this is the realm of the light elves and is chaired by the god Freyr.

Midgard: is home to the men, and was created by the gods to protect Asgard from giants.

Nidavellir: the kingdom belonging to the dwarves. They forged a number of the weapons for the gods, Two examples are Gullinbursti, the golden Freyr’s boar and the Mjollnir hammer for Thor.

Jotunheim: this is the land of giants. Generally, they are enemies of the gods, but some of them have come to fall in love and have children with them.

Svartalfheim: realm of the dark elves or goblins, whom they are often confused with the dwarves.

Niflheim: The realm of the dead, ruled by the goddess Hel.

NORDIC GODS

Among the Norse gods we have several quite famous examples. Some people know them for Marvel Comics and others from books or anime. Regardless of the reason that they are known, the fact is that some of those listed below are well-known figures in the general culture.

Odin: king of the Norse gods. He belongs to the Aesir and is primarily the god of war. However, he is also credited with death, poetry and wisdom. It is one of the recognized characters from Marvel comic “Thor” and is also referred to in the anime “Matantei Loki Ragnarok”.

Thor: God of Thunder and carrier Mjollnir. He is the eldest son of Odin and, therefore, also the heir to the throne of Asgard. He is the main character of the renowned Marvel comic “Thor” and appears as one of the characters of the anime “Matantei Loki Ragnarok” and the visual novel for PSP “Kamigami no Asobi”.

Balder: is a son of Odin. It is the god of light, beauty and innocence. In mythology it was not very powerful; however, in the visual novel for PSP “Kamigami no Asobi” he is also credited with destruction killing, that way, the character’s weakness.

Loki: the son of Laufey and Farbauti, giants, nevertheless he is also part of the Aesir and Odin’s foster brother. He is attributed the fire and deception. He is the main character of the anime “Matantei Loki Ragnarok” in which he is transformed into a child and banished from the kingdom of Asgard, in the Marvel comic “Thor” he is the adopted brother of Thor and in the visual novel “Kamigami no Asobi” he is the best friend of Thor and Balder.

Frigga: wife of Odin and goddess of love, marriage, fertility and motherhood. Appears in the comic “Thor” as the wife of Odin and mother of Thor.

Bragi: is a son of Odin and he is atributed with the poetry. He inspired bards and the runes were carved on his language. Although to my knowledge this God makes no appearance in any major external history to mythology, is important because it is the son of Odin and brother of Thor.

Idun: is the goddess of youth, who is married to Bragi. She is responsible for keeping a chest full of golden apples that give immortality to the Norse gods. These apples are the equivalent of the ambrosia to the Greek gods.

Heimdall: the god of light and sentinel of the gods. It is responsible for monitoring the Bifrost. Appears in the comic “Thor” and the anime “Matantei Loki Ragnarok”.

Tyr: the god of war and patron of justice. It is equivalent to the god Ares in Greek mythology.

Njord: the god of the sea, wind and fire. It is part of the Vanir and father of Freyr and Freya. He is kind of the equivalent of the god Susano, Japanese mythology and the Greek god Poseidon.

Freyr: is part of the Vanir and the god of sun, rain and fertility. Carrier Gullinbursti, he is said to be one of the most beautiful gods. Starred in “Matantei Loki Ragnarok” as one of the secondary characters. you could say he is the equivalent of Apollo in Greek mythology.

Freya: Freyr’s sister is the goddess of love and fertility. She is the equivalent Affrodita because she is the most beautiful goddess of all. She also appears in “Matantei Loki Ragnarok”.

Skadi: is a giant and is the goddess of winter and of course, you can go ahead and link her with “Thor” from Marvel since one of the sworn enemies of Asgard is Joutenheim, land of the ice giants.

The Norns: are the three goddesses of fate. They control the future of the gods and men. Their names are Urd, who represents the past; Vernandi, who represents the present; and Skuld, who represents the future. They are the equivalent of the Fates in Greek mythology and you can see them in “Matantei Loki Ragnarok” first as Loki’s enemies and later as frinds.

We note that these are just some of the gods of this vast mythology. It’s possible I add another post with more information about this mythology, since I love it. For now I leave you with images of the stories that I referred to when I wrote this entry.
