The Purple Frog loves December. One moment it is a reminder of twinkling lights, the crackle sound of paper, loitering around, arm wrestling, pebble kicking, freaky faces, blowing bubbles, unstoppable laughter and just goofing around.
Another minute it is a reflective, gloomy, cold evening where you just want to rush home no matter where you are sitting.
Home is sacred. But it is not where. It is who. Lol. Here is to goofy home times this December. Go wild, Go tribal.
Thing This Week
A Native American headdress
This war bonnet has a lot of cultural meaning to it. Read wiki for that.
The Purple Frog has gone all non-authentic and fake on this one. Just how we have reduced Dream Catchers to store décor. Lol. Plus, the understanding and supply of feathers among shopkeepers here is mind numbing and heart wilting. Lol.
So guiltlessly wore this homemade version and moved around with the oomph & attitude of a tribal warrior.
It is not easy to pull it off. It’s enormous effort. More can still be done with it. Though, each bit is worth it…
So go ahead and try making one for the deity you call home.
In the background today
A very fat, pretty woman (suggests lazy or no self-control or mom’s kitchen or hyperactivity) is hosting a discussion show on BBC World News – #100WOMENDEBATE – Does appearance matter? Does Beauty equal success? So on and so forth…
Does that even need a debate? Looking beautiful is effort. Those who look good (men or women) pay attention to it. And like all disciplined efforts, it NEEDS to be recognised. And like all things, effort in just one area is never enough to take you ahead…what’s the debate here?
This fat lady host here I’m sure knows that choosing the taste of éclairs pastry in the middle of the night will lead to compromises in the taste of compliments and first-impressions and attention and more such things.
Let’s not live in denial or bring feminism here. We all know both the tastes feel good on the palate. One is the cost of another. We make a choice.
And by stirring this debate among beautiful women, who have obviously worked less on mind games because a lot of their time goes in paying attention to fashion and make up and work out (which is awesome), she is trying to create a world where everyone is blindly eating in the name of confidence and high self-esteem or what not.
Instead introduce effort in the world of men too. Get them to say… It’s Me or Maybelline. Lol.
What she needs to do from the powerful place where she is sitting – invite men too for such debates and ensure that women at 45 flirt around or give a fishy look when they see a hot 30-year-old pass by as they walk with their sagging, ageing husbands.
That’s the stuff women need. Ability to mischief and smile and get over with things by saying baby, I’m so sorry. He meant nothing baby. You have temper issues. You need medication. Come, my love, let’s go home, children are waiting for you to cook us a meal…Lol
That’s when the unrest will start to reduce not when the idea of beautification is eroded from the world.
Because that will mean we should say no to the beautiful night sky and oceans and birds and pretty puppies, babies and all things beautiful…Share this thought:
