Is it Tuesday again already? Sheesh, what’s with that? It seems like Tuesday comes around literally every week. Oh well, I guess that means it’s time for The Nest to share its wonderfully warped and deeply disturbed world with you all. And that means I’ll be answering the questions Melanie provided us with for this week. Who knows… maybe I might even answer one of them with a straight face this time…
Why do we have such trouble telling our loved ones that we love them? Do you have that kind of communication issue with your loved ones?
I personally think a lot of communication of feelings is just so much lip service, and it’s always bothered me (and probably another reason I wouldn’t last a day in the world of romance) that a lot of people feel the need to be told in no uncertain terms how you feel about them, and often. If you can’t tell by now, I’m not one of those people who is going to just blurt out that I love someone, even family. If it’s not obvious, well, I guess you’re just in the dark…
They teach managers at the place you work at to always communicate how appreciative they are of the work of the
slaves employees under their charge. I absolutely despise being given a thank you for all I’ve done because even if it’s sincere, I will always take such niceties cynically. I can tell by how I’m treated and respected by my bosses whether my work is actually appreciated or not, and absolutely no extra assurances are necessary. That’s how I feel about love too. If you actually have to say to someone that you love them for it to mean something to them, there’s an issue with the relationship to begin with…
Decorations for holidays? Spirit lifters or pain in the butt? Or a mix?
If you’re one of those people who actually enjoy elaborately decorating for the holidays, then I’d assume it isn’t a pain in the butt. For those who do so because they feel compelled to for some reason….. well, you have nobody but yourself to blame for your inconvenience.
Do you donate to charities? Of your time, do you feel money is the only true gift, or other?
Geez, the questions this week seem tailor made to bring out the asshole in me!
Other than the occasional round up the change promotions some of the fast food places I eat at offer, I’m a Scrooge when it comes to charities. I’m not going to say they don’t do good, but they’re basically corporations operating under non-profit protection. And so many of them are trying to “fight” the very thing that will put them out of business…. and no, I don’t think any of them actually want to be made obsolete. Too many people within the organization have their livelihoods tied to it continuing to rake in millions of dollars in donations every year. Think about it…
Are you too superstitious or have you ever played with a Ouija Board?
I have a 13th birthday and 13 has long been my favorite number. Note I said favorite, not lucky. Superstition is bunk and I don’t believe in good or bad luck… just the randomness of the universe.
A for a Ouija board, I don’t think I’ve ever even seen one in real life, let alone “played” with one. I don’t even see how they’re supposed to “work.”
This week please share a photo or image of what ‘harvest’ and “Autumn” mean to you!
