Another week where real life got in the way of being the blogger I want to grow up to be but I still managed to see a few things worth letting you all know about.
Racist Bus Twat!
Not sure there is any other way of titling this post, apart from maybe “Racist Bus Twat supported by other Twats”! For those of you unable to casually flick to internet news sites throughout the day here’s the summary: A woman was on a Melbourne bus speaking French when “the Twat”, went off at her for… believe it or not, speaking French! To make the story worse a couple with a pram (that’s right, they are breeding) put their own 2 cents in completing the Twat-some. The story is here. It’s embarrassing and uncomfortable to watch but did make me question what I would do. I’d like to think I would do something about it but in the heat of the moment, with a guy spouting that much venom, maybe I would wuss out. I hope not. What would you do?
White Ribbon Day – Swear the oath
Some things are meant to be and maybe, the Twat above’s antics, will cause more people to get behind the White Ribbon day campaign.
As a member of the guy race, I’m aware that sometimes we miss the mark when it comes to acting like proper human beings and as a husband and a dad I’d like to think that as a society we’re getting better at standing up for saying no to violence.
I’ve signed the pledge and so have the boys over at Tacklenappy (well done fellas). I’m sure they won’t mind me speaking for them by urging you to sign up as well.
Kickin it to the curb Award
“Negative can kiss my arse, I have no time for it anymore. Positive can pop up wherever it wants any time of the day or night. I’ll see it, acknowledge it, and soak up every lucky moment I am given with it.”
I love finding a new favourite and this week I came across Miss Cinders at saturdaymorningogremum who is now officially on the illiterate infant watch list. Her post about ditching negativity and embracing the positive was like a slap around the head – in a good way. You know exactly how motivated (really) she is by reading what she has to say. It’s writing with conviction and rocks. Well done Miss C!
That’s all for this week. For anyone that keeps up the illiterate infant comings and goings, I’m planning to see James Bond: Sky Fall this weekend so if I never post again it’s because I decided to pursue my original career aspirations.
Have a cracking weekend – Flogging this blog with Grace over at withsomegrace‘s FYBF.
