Thoughtful Thursday - Breast Cancer Awareness

wp-1476795646883.jpg
The following has happened more than once this month, so I felt the need to say something about it:

"Sorry Raeanne.. I fell for it also.....but it's for a very good cause!  Here it goes... you shouldn't have liked or commented on my last status.  Now you have to pick from one of the below and post it as your status. This is the 2016 Breast Cancer Awareness game. Don't be a spoil sport. Pick your poison from one of these and post it as your status.

1. Just found a squirrel in my car!
2. Just used my kids to get out of a speeding ticket.
3. How do you get rid of foot fungus?
4. All of my bras are missing!
5. I think I just accepted a marriage proposal online?!
6. I've decided to stop wearing underwear.
7. It's confirmed I'm going to be a mommy/daddy.
8. Just won a chance audition on America's got talent!
9. I've been accepted on master chef.
10. I'm getting a pet monkey!

Post with no explanations. Sorry, I fell for it too. 😂Looking forward to your post. Ahhh don't ruin it. (Don't let the secret out). And remember it's all for the 2016 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign!! ❤"

What utter fucking bullshit.

Seriously.

If you want to waste time on the internet, go play Candy Crush Saga and leave me the fuck out of it.

You want to do something for Breast Cancer? Here's a radical idea:

1. Get your head out of your ass.

2. Donate some cash or get a sponsor and participate in an event.

You want to raise awareness?

1. Share a legitimate site link such as http://www.breastcancer.org or http://www.cancer.ca. Tip: They can tell you what events are happening in your area.

2. Share real stories of people who know from experience such as https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=3_DYTVUJyfE or http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/2499249

3. Don't buy pink shit unless you know exactly how much money it raises for breast cancer. See http://thinkbeforeyoupink.org/resources/before-you-buy/ to learn why.

Furthermore, you can use this as a guide for any other cause that pops up.

In closing, these things are equivalent to junk mail, which ends up in the garbage. Stop filling other people's lives with garbage. It's not a nice thing to do. So stop being ignorant by sharing insensitive "games" and do something that is actually useful.

Ciao,
R~

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included.  Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt.  I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her. She was a force off the track too. As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers , she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.   Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her.  I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again.  R.I.P. #10. Rae-Rae
