Thoughts, Opinions, and other brickabrack.


My name is Jennilee. Call me Jennifer and you die. I am thirty-something, trying very hard to graduate from college, and opinionated like you wouldn't believe. I'm un-apologetically liberal and pagan. I have no problems with other people's beliefs until they try to shove them down my throat. I'm also un-apologetically childfree. (google it if you don't know what it means)

This blog contains: Opinions, Random things I find on the web that I like...also random thoughts from my brain. Don't expect too many deep thoughts, I have an LJ for those.

Questions? Comments? Tomatoes?

I’ve given up trying to correct people.

FUCK YES

I always use the phrase, “Murdered seven different ways from Sunday”, when people try to pronounce my last name.

I have a fairly regular name: Daisy, but I live in France where everyone goes: Desiree? Dazie? Daghjdskgjc?

Mine Lemaitre but people call me lemontar or lemotre what?!

Soliman? It’s not that hard.

bruns. fucking bruns is hard. like burns? NO I SAID BRUNS AS IN THE R GOES BEFORE THE U.

My last name is Dike
People have a tendency of spelling it as Dyke

Growing up in NJ, if your name doesn’t end in a vowel or is a single syllable, it’s going to get fucked. A name like Bjornsen…yeah, just rolls off the tongue (yes I’m being sarcastic), and it’s been butchered 28 ways to Sunday since preschool.
Granted, my married name is much easier to pronounce, but even that gets somehow fucked up.

Both my first and last name get it bad my first name Jennilee is pronounced Jenny-Lee. Not that hard. But I get JennAHLee and JeNIGHlee. As for my last name, Benda, people are forever trying to put a random R into it. Hubby and I get Bender, Brenda, Bendra. So yeah, I get double whammy.

Did she leave you the number of an emergency vet? You should call a vet.

Sounds like fun. Except I can’t write poetry for beans.

The Importance of Play →

mydrunkkitchen:

In the book I’m reading (Delivered from Distraction) I just came upon a section that discusses the importance of “play.” Basically it describes play as kind of this meditative state of creative engagement. It allows you to be fully present and focused on the task at hand, without generating any…

I want to work for Hannah’s company. Just saying.

Also I read an article on Huffington Post that coloring is good for adult stress levels & creativity.

I need coloring books.

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.

favorite things about this

  • literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
  • the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
  • all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
  • that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.

I JUST DIED

I SEARCHED THIS POST FOR AGES OH MY GOD

This is funny, but I couldn’t listen to more than the first few seconds before the audio train wreck gave me a headache.

Five knots will I tie for every unfriendly and unfaithful shooter - on the guns, on the bows, on every weapon of war. O knots, shut against the shooter all highways and byways, close up the guns, put all the bows out of order, string together all the weapons of war; in my knots let there be almighty virtue.

—Russian folk magic spell against enemy weapons, quoted in W.F. Ryan, The Bathhouse at Midnight: Magic in Russia (via winawinadajcie)

With today’s news of another innocent black youth shooting, we should all give this spell a shot. 

(via green-witch-uprooted)

Sounds good to me.

You can plug in anywhere on the square

My thought is that it would be entirely too easy to overload this outlet and start an electrical fire.
