Getting To Know You 07.03.2019

Quite often, people say that you make a decision about a person based on the first 60 seconds of meeting them. So, my question for today is: What is it about a person that you notice when firstly meeting them that makes you either interested or disinterested in being around that person?

My answer: If the other person is interested in the meeting. That would be a determining factor. If that person is noticeably only interested in themselves, or bored/annoyed by my presence, then I want away very quickly.

What’s your answer?

‘For every child born in Wales since April 2014, the Welsh Government have donated a fruit tree to Ugandan families, to celebrate the birth or adoption of every child.’

Does anyone know if this is actually true? What a good idea!

If you could get in a plane/train/bus and go anywhere in the world, today. Where would you go?

I think I would run to someplace peaceful & warm. It’s so cold today! I’ve been seeing a lot about Bahamas recently. Maybe I would go there!

Amazon, WTF?! #weird

12

Good day 🙂

I hope you are all well!

Most of us have a habit of scrolling through the internet when we get a bit bored. My weakness is online shopping. Not just because I love to torture myself with all the beautiful things I cannot have, but because I have a true interest in the retail sector. It all began with my ultimate frustration in not being able to easily find the gorgeous design worthy items I love in 100% natural fabrics. I still have this problem, though I have managed to find a few great stores. Anywho, I digress. Because of this fixation, I actually have to spend a LOT of time scrolling, scrolling, scrolling…  I almost always share my happy finds with you guys.

I scroll through Amazon quite often. It takes awhile, but there are some really good finds there. While digging through, I come across some ‘interesting’ items. So I thought it would be fun to post some of the biggest WTF items I saw on Amazon today. Hope you get a giggle, or perhaps can explain to me what some of this stuff is?!

a boots wtf

Intrepid International Shipping Boots, Hunter Green

Can anyone explain these to me? Please??

a finger wtf

Set Of Ten Finger Hands Finger Puppets

This is just bizarre, but kind of fun in an Adams Family type way. Cool for Halloween maybe?

a cat wtf

Unspeakable Fortune Stephen Mackey Fantasy Odd Weird Animal Cat Print Poster 16×20

Uuuuuuhhhhhhmmmmm……

a bs wtf

The Official BS Button

I need this.

a face wtf

Functional Silicone Rubber Face Facial Slimmer Exercise Mouthpiece Anti Wrinkle by Abcstore99

Ok, I seriously have to giggle like a 14 year old boy now. Whhhhyyyy …. This contraption looks like it belongs on a, um, pleasure doll more than an anti-wrinkle whatever you want to call it. I just don’t understand.

a passy wtf

1pc Silicone Baby Nipple Dummy Funny Pacifier Soother Joke Prank Toddler Pacy Orthodontic Nipples Teether Baby Pacifier Care Design 10

Funny, but bizzar-o.

That’s it for my WTF post for today. What are some of the most head-scratching worthy WTF items you’ve come across in your online shopping?

Bejeweled Blitz Challenge update

Greetings earthlings 🙂

As many of you know, I challenged myself to see how many coins (starting from as near to zero as I could get without earning  more coins by playing) I could get on Bejeweled Blitz by only using the daily free spin(s), the new treasure chest button (coins or a gem free every 8 hours), playing the free daily challenge & only actually playing the gem if you win it from the daily challenge & coins from playing the ads.

I did not play any regular games. Only if I had won special gems, then I played those.

img_6230

150,000 happened really fast. And then, on the daily spin, I won 100,000! This has happened twice since.

img_6231

I’ve discovered, that if you wait to watch the ads until after you take your daily spin, a pop-up will come up after you’ve spun once, to watch an ad and get another free spin. OK, that works! Cool 🙂

img_6233

A couple days in and I was starting to be surprised how fast I was accruing coins by NOT playing the regular game.

img_6248

I hit 1,000,000 surprisingly fast. Really. I was actually shocked.

img_6254

Still going pretty quick, but the rate at which I was gathering coins started to slow.  However, there have been at least 2 daily challenges where I could play for the gem more than once. However, with a goal score like this, I couldn’t win it. No way.

img_6263

Can’t believe it! I guess it felt like so long before this challenge, because I would sometimes spend my coins for special gems. When not making any purchases, this number popped up waaayyy faster than I expected.

img_6302

Once I hit 2,000,000 – The rate at which I was accruing coins slowed drastically. I attribute this to the fact that this is a smart game. It has to be. The scores I needed to hit in order to win the daily challenges increased by 250,000 – 500,000. Whereas I was winning these challenges on a regular basis, I am now losing more than winning. Good thing though is that if you don’t watch all your ads first, a pop-up will appear after your first challenge attempt that will you give another free try after watching an ad. I like this 🙂

img_6309

3,000,000!

 So, all in all this challenge is going pretty well! It’s fun, and because I’m not allowing myself to play the regular game at all – in order to see how many free coins I can get, I don’t have to worry about getting hooked in to playing this game on repeat for a long time.

Do you play Bejeweled?

3 Day Quote Challenge

I accepted this challenge from Chape Personal Trainer  A very interesting, helpful and forgiving site. (I hope you’ll go check them out).

The Challenge seems simple enough, so I hope some of you will also accept the challenge and share.

There are 3 Challenge rules:

  • You need to post for 3 days in a row
  • You must pick 1-3 quotes daily
  • In each post, you must challenge 3 bloggers

Today I’m quoting Anthony Damiani. He penned one of my favorite books Standing in your own way: Talks on the nature of ego

Most people don’t know or don’t accept the fact that if they had no thoughts they would be happy.’

…but when you look at the dream, you know that the dream character borrowed whatever consciousness he or she has from the person having the dream.

The recognition that the ego is part of the world’s being comes upon you and you stop saying that it doesn’t exist.

My nominees for today:

Roo’s ruse

Mrs Strawberry Blonde 

Brew N Spew

Until tomorrow!

Thanks for reading!
