I can only listen to so much of them. For the most part, I know what they are going to say...propaganda.

Yeah... Genetically it hits a bit too close to home. We're still sore at the monkeys for claiming they are our ancestors. :unsure:

kikuyu grass

Goats will eat that. Otherwise, kids mostly like junk food. They will eat anything. Apparently they turn their noses up at home grown food and go straight for the packaged skittles in bright colours. If it comes in a pez dispenser they'll eat that.

I feel like mmmbopping a friend

but I wonder if this is common
you organise something that person asks you to go organise to go out
you call that friend on the day to see if they still on to meet up
she says yes
then you get halfway to where you going to meet up and she calls you to say she cant go anymore cos shes just got some stomach bug or whatver
when you just spoke with her only ten minutes ago asking if she was ok to meet up

im like ok whatever
I didnt even bother to say get well soon, and if she wants another time the she better organise it not me.

oh well could be worse, I meet her and she PRETENDS shes fine then I find out shes sick all over and complains she has a headache

grrr
ok when I ask a question, why cant you just be honest in the first place instead of LIE to me about how you are feeling?! I ask HOW ARE YOU for a reason.

I must be getting ornery because Im tired of making plans and then people calling and saying they cant do them at the last minute and then putting out the other friend

who has made time for them

or made a big dinner

or prepared to drive /travel a long way to see them

this is why I dont book or prepay anything any more. If you wanna do stuff you either do or you dont make the effort and if you the one that cancels its on YOU to suggest another time.

Who are these 'friends' that are so inconsiderate? If someone did that to me more than once, unless there was a valid reason why, I wouldn't be making plans w/them anymore. You deserve way better than that. I pray the Lord sends you true Christian friends in the near future you can depend on, in Jesus name, Amen🙏🙏🙏

mmm well

Im going to forgive them cos its the first time theyve done that with me but then with covid going round sometimes you cant expect plans to go ahead all the time.

some of them are family though

if they do it again well I dont know!
thanks for thinking of me though. I had one I told because this other friend made plans than rang and said oh I cant make it cos of other plans and then that so confused me I had to ring the other friend to say we cant come that day as we were going to go together. I should have just got HER to tell that friend because she was the one who canceled not me. I now cant remember what reason she gave. some family thing. (but why make plan if you know you cant fufil it?)

Then that friend actually forgot that I had rung yesterday and told her we couldnt come and was waiting for us today. Even though I rang, emailed and made new plans for Thursday.

Im kinda tired of those telephone tree run around, and for some people its truly like in one ear and out the other.

sometimes its just easier to do things with only one other person or even by yourself. Too bad!

as for christian friends well one goes to church and the other is supposedly, but I dont think you can rely on most people these days. yea and families are often the excuse. I cant come because family stuff which can be anything from your dog just threw up on you to I need to pick up so and so otherwise theyd be walking by themselves on the street and get abducted. Or something.

They don't call me Gru for nuttin! And if the do not disturb sign on the door or snoring doesn't keep people out, then the steam coming out from under the door ought give them a hint.

Why would I want to trade off a perfectly good bed for some boring old fancy dinner. Up n atem doesn't work for me. It's shove the bedroom door open, and yelling 'Hello world, take a hike' 😡. Then the day goes on a downward trend starting with the cat dragging me over to the pantry to get her breakfast. 🙄 Speaking of which, she's making signs that it's dinner time. O well, it's back to the grind stone. 🤨 Have a good one 👍🙂

Most people seem to default to being indifferent about other people until there is a real or perceived offense. It’s actually quite easy to get someone to not be nice. Even looking at someone the “wrong way” or for too long might be enough to ruin a first impression.

There’s etiquette and protocol to follow in every culture it seems.

I was talking with someone today about the Blood of Jesus and it came to my mind what gets my goat big time. When I see a painting or depiction of Jesus on the cross and there's a trickle of blood coming out of His side wound. He had His beard pulled, a crown of thorns pushed down into His head, the nails in His palms and feet and the 39 lashes. I find this so wrong even though I know the artists probably just don't have a clue🤦‍♀️
Isaiah chapter 52

[14] As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
[15] So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

Dinner isnt served till at least 6 oclock so not sure how long you plan on sleeping...
haha well your tummy may not thank you if we eat it all and no leftovers for you then
not even delicious smells of....sizzling bacon all day breakfast that we end up having for dinner?
and then...I dont know, those little sweet things people call dessert?

Im beginning to suspect all we are told about the way to a mans heart is through has stomach has been a lie!
also those masterchef australia shows must have actors right surely normal people hate cooking and food and would rather go hungry.....!

plus, grinding all that coffee, pepper and spices must be a drag ay
oh well if you snooze you lose...

in some cultures its a actually criminal offence to be late
like nobody will talk to you if you are say two minutes late, according to THeir watch
because it ruins peoples clockwork, and nobody has heard of glide time.

Also people are so impatient they get road rage and when you in a vehicle going 100 km/h that can be quite dangerous actually

Not sure what the solution is, but people say you shouldnt pray for patience.
But asking everyone else to hurry up doesnt work
