Funny story, a couple of weeks ago there was a local new's story here about a man calling the police on seagulls for stealing his ice cream...

(He said he knew that the police couldn't really do anything, but he was really upset about the seagulls because he really wanted that ice cream, so he wanted some sense of justice and thus, called the police on them)

Was there nuts on the ice cream? 'Cos it sounds like there was one holding the cone.

What chills me out:

Vaping, exercise, Christian worship, reading the bible, eating healthy, reading, watching uplifting/motivational YouTube videos, watching early seasons of Buffy, watching the News, listening to good music, sleeping

What stresses me out:

Worrying that my loved ones are not as happy as they can be, my health if I've been eating bad, my health in general if there's something possibly wrong with me, relying on my carers to adhere to their allotted timeslots plus the language barrier (they're African), not having access to all the commodities I rely on (like my laptop if it might break), lack of sleep

I don't like birds, especially pigeons and seagulls. Oh, and we have HUGE crows around here!! They're bigger than cats, no kidding. Like messengers of death or something.

Squirrels, opossums, pitbulls, raccoons...spiders, lizards...they really need to die. But @EarthLogic LOVES spiders. Thought I'd mention that. 😱

What stresses me out

Being around people
Watching my cat vomit, cough... many times in a row and asking myself if he 's sick and if it's deadly.
Thinking about the future death of my cat (renal problems are horrible and frequent) or my loved ones.
Thinking about pets suffering all around the world
Thinking about the future of France and many countries.

Music (Pink Floyd...)
Watching TV
Watching alone a peaceful starry sky in the night
Watching alone a peaceful sunset
To eat an ice cream, soooo gooood!!!

Oh dear I think I'm getting too old, which must be a worry for Ethan Reigns and white avenger. Luckily I still have a wicked sense of humour, which most folk can observe as I include Anyanka Bunny Slayer to that list tee hee.

What stresses me out:

Being awake.

What relaxes me:

Being asleep

Germans asking if things are are possible. Like, that's not how you ask someone for a favour.
People treating 'luggage' as a countable noun.
People who demand monetary compensation.
People who demand.
My colleague telling me I can't call security to have them remove demented all hunch-backed ladies from my work place.
People who snap their fingers at me.
Passengers from the cheaper airlines.
Passengers who try to control the conversation.
Continentals asking for window seats, especially if they phrase their question by asking if having such a seat is possible.

What Relaxes Me
Vorster puppies.
Free ice cream.
High heels click-clacking on a hard floor.
People who aske me how my day is.

What stresses you out the most?

Walking into a shop to have a chat with the owner when some person or other is in there already and they are constantly and incessantly talking about them self, it is so annoying to have to listen to them especially when you want to talk constantly and incessantly about your self.

What relaxes you the most?

When you walk into that shop and that other b is behind you, yippee!

nightshade,
it's about Time you posted here, no doubt you was so relaxed reading the hands of the clock go round and round. You
were happy listening to the music by that Glitter guy that you forgot about being late.
