I am not the sum of my opinions…

Lee @ Mummy Issues Part 2 wants to know our opinions…
So being the entirely opinionated person I am, I figured I should join in on the fun! 😉

Labour or Liberal – generally vote Green or independent
Carbon tax – in principle, yes
Mining tax – sure
Uranium export – um, no thanks!
Asylum seekers/ Refugees – yes, give them a chance, otherwise we’re as bad as the place they’re running from
Climate change – can’t continue to be ignored
Wind farms – absolutely, although more solar energy would be better
Marriage equality – abso-freakin-lutely YES!!!
Abortion – I am pro-choice but it’s not a choice I could make for myself
Death penalty – No way
Organ donation – if I’ve got something useful after I’m dead, then sure, go for it
Contraception – yes, along with more education about using it
Controlled crying – no
Sleep training – no
Smacking – no
Swearing – I’m an expert
North or south of the river – apparently this is a Melbourne thing… but I’ll say south! 😛
Life after death – I think we all continue on somehow, just not sure of the specifics
God? – no way. If others want to believe it then that’s their thing, but don’t force it on me
Football code – haven’t watched football in years, but if I had to choose it would be AFL
Football team – bugger football, how about roller derby!
Netball or basketball – do I have to choose? cos I’d still prefer roller derby!!!

Down the rabbit hole

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

 

I have to confess right here at the start that I was never a big fan of Alice as a child! I struggled to get through Alice in Wonderland and gave up part way into Through the Looking-Glass! I haven’t tried again as an adult, but it’s on my list of things to do. (yep, it’s a very long list!)

But the idea of it has always appealed to me.

Sometimes everything can seem so backwards and indistinct, a bit like like looking at it in a mirror with a different perspective from the rest of the world. That doesn’t mean that my perspective is wrong, just a little different. And as a supposedly grown-up person, I’ve learned that being different is OK.

So welcome to my topsy-turvy world! Hang on tight and enjoy the ride!
I can’t promise that everything will always make sense, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the experience if you take things at face value rather than trying to work out the why and how of where they came from.
