Four You (A Mix Tape)

28 Sep

In India on the back of every truck you’ll find these words “Blow Horn!” And you know what, everybody blows their horn like it was going out of style.

You know I am a little bit of a coward. I mean it. Here’s what I mean, instead of coming out and voicing my feelings or thoughts…I write them up here. Oh, don’t know worry, I talk a lot. I get thoughts out there, ones that matter too. But the ones that could be rejected or viewed as unwelcome.

I put those up here. Kind of like an announcement board. And then I cross my fingers, my toes, my eyes, legs…and pray that the person who it’s meant for will read it and feel inspired, or know that I care. Perhaps it’s that I feel I’m the only one on in each specific relationship who senses the overbearing need to Say Anything (that’s a movie isn’t it?). You ever feel that way? Of course you do, if you’re writing a blog well that’s clue number one. Don’t worry, there’s no need for shame, at least you’re saying something. If you’ve read  earlier posts you’ll know that I’m not a fan of bottling things up. Dumb.

I’ma “Blow my Horn” ~these are for four different unrelated people I’ve met in life.

1. I don’t know how many times I have to tell you “You’re beautiful, you’ve overwhelming because you’re so wonderful and you shine so bright!” I don’t care either, I’ll be here to tell you. Let me tell you. Listen to me tell you.  If it weren’t the truth; I wouldn’t say it. Do I have to go so far as to name names? I don’t think so. You know who you are. Just start believing it, because it’s the truth. Man, I wish you would just believe it.


2. I don’t know if you’re reading these posts of mine. Maybe I’m too much of a romantic. Maybe I stifled what could have been a beautiful friendship and something more. Maybe I’m the only one who felt that way. You want the truth?  Ah yes, well, its only because I thought I was the only one who felt that way. I wish I had let myself love you. So I wrote you off. And for that I’m sorry. Haha, you might not even know it’s you I’m talking about. But I think it’s too late to change any of that…isn’t it? Do you know who you are?


3. Are you reading this? I gave you the opportunity to take the honorable option. And you took the wrong one. How could you take advantage of me like that? Wasn’t I kind and generous to you? Wasn’t I your friend? I don’t understand. I trusted you too much and you ripped away just a bit more of my trust from humanity. I never should have trusted you. You should know who you are. Step up and take responsibility for your actions. You broke my proverbial heart


4. I know you’re not reading this. You. There is no way. You’re illiterate. For you there aren’t any words, only names. Bad names. And I refuse to write them up here. You know who you are, but you’ll never hear anything from me.


Would you pick different songs? Of course you would, there are so many out there, but then this post would only be music videos. Aren’t they simply fun though? The images make you think and the words make you ponder. Of course life is not like a music video, but who ever put a ban on living like you’re in one? No one.

I’m not trying to escape reality, simply just trying to find another way to embrace it. And there. You have it now. I’m a closet coward. And if these four people were to walk into the room right this moment, would I say anything?


*Black Adder*

28 Apr

As I have previously mentioned, I am slightly tired with thinking about Beijing. I have to admit it and be completely honest.
There comes a time in one’s travels when the blogging about oddities never found anywhere else and the photos about cool things discovered; simply lose glamour. One needs to think of other things.
I am one such person. I’ve written about my less-than interesting dating life (of which there is more, but I’m making you wait). I’m now going to write about the entertainment that I enjoyed as a wee Canadian lass.

Blackadder-Sense&Senility Part 1/4 – YouTube.

I grew up with two older sisters (ten years my senior). I love them dearly, but this being the case I also grew up watching movies and shows that should have been above my level of comprehension.
Cue Black Adder. Cue Pride and Prejudice. Cue the BBC.

My older sisters loved Black Adder, and subsequently so did I. I laughed when they laughed, and repeated lines from the episodes to my friends at school. If you watched the above listed episode, then you will know what kinds of things I said (within reason, I wasn’t a complete idiot).

None other than the four faces of Black Adder.

Picture me then, a curly-haired, freckle-faced girl, running up to my friends to say things like…well if you’ve watched the episode you know what I mean.

British humor is rather dry. And if you’re not on your toes, then you could miss the funny bit all together. Sometimes I stared into the emotionless faces of other youngsters who were still waiting for the punch-line long after I’d finished rehashing a night’s worth of Black Adder.
“Get it?” I’d say.


Oh well, all of this to say that lately I’ve watched some Black Adder and it is still funny. I just thought I’d share some of the hilarity around.

Tune in Next Time when I discuss some of the comedians who are smarter than you. Yes you.
And Rowan Atkinson is one of them.
