50th Post

Well here it is, the big 5-0. Not a huge number but a big number to me. It's been a few days since I posted and I figured I should post something. I couldn't come up with an idea but I didn't want a fluff post for my small milestone. So here are some things that have been on my mind, things I'll probably go into more depth later on when I feel like it.

1. Indigenous peoples loosing their land. The reason being a song I downloaded a few weeks ago by Israel_Kamakawiwo'ole a native Hawaiian. His song a medley of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World is done with only a ukulele to compliment his wonderful voice. After downloading the song I did a little research on the singer mostly because his name is interesting. I read a but about him as a singer and a cultural influence in Hawaii for his artistic work and for his quest for Hawaiian independence.

This lead me to the thoughts of indigenous people and how terrible it must have been to lose their land to invaders. Invaders coming into their land and stealing their resources, homes, and property. Killing them with disease and murder. You know how the rednecks are always complaining that the illegal immigrants are doing just that? Well, I've come to the conclusion that this is America's karma. I personally welcome them. A friend of mine has several illegal family members living in the US. Sometimes I wish I could speak fluent Spanish so I could stop speaking English around the people who complain about people speaking other languages.

2. I miss my cats. Nothing else here. I just miss them terribly. Stupey passed a few years ago. And Noel who passed away this year. Her death caused me to stop writing on this blog for a while. It still hurts. I mourn them like I mourn a human being. They were members of my family. And I miss them so much, so very much.

3. I haven recently discovered that if I ran a government, it would be a socialist government. Nationstates showed me that. I've also learned that the richer you are the less you want to give. It's non wealthy people that want to save the planet or donate time and money to non trendy causes. Why is this? Does money make you a jerk? Or maybe only jerks get rich.

Bleeding hearts, people who care, seem to want to make the world better therefore have no money because it all goes to helping. Conservatives, people who only care abut themselves, don't want to help anyone or anything and would stomp on a kitten if amused them. Therefore have extra money to spend on themselves and spoiled children because they are selfish and stingy. A generalization or an apt observation?

4. Blogging makes me happy but I don't think I have any readers. I was on this website looking over something and saw the requirement was 10K+ readers. 10,000 or more people! I don't break 100 people a day and even that number is inflated. Who the hell has 10,000 people reading their site everyday? Niche blogs probably. Everyone writes about how to make money off the internet or how to be rich like them. I wonder if I stopped using Entrecard, would all my "readers" disapper and leave me with five hits a day , all of them mine?

5. I'm bored with life. I need a distraction. Thank goodness I'm off to Canobie Lake Park the local amusement park in a few days. I haven't been there in years but with the addition of a new ride I'm there. Adrenaline junkies FTW! And if you're from New England like me then you should know about Spooky World. Spooky world at Canobie this year. I absolutely LOVE having a birthday four days before Halloween. Goodbye hideous bridesmaid dress, hello dead prom queen haha.

So that's it for my big 50th post. Hope you enjoyed it. And hey if you're an Entrecard user, I'll send you fifty credits if you're the first person to comment a non spam post to mark the occasion. Here's for fifty more! Let's leave off with the video for Somewhere Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World. Hope it makes you smile like it does for me.
