A Song For Someone



Cocaine Princess here.

It's no big secret I love Brit~Coms and the BBC. With that being said, a few nights ago I caught an episode of "The Graham Norton Show." One of guests to appear was music group U2 where they sang one incredible song.

Take a listen.....

"You Light The Skies....."




Cocaine Princess here.

I do apologize for the lack of blogging these past few weeks. Usually I make it a point to post an entry every Friday but it's been a little chaotic these past few weeks. Things will be settling down soon and I'll be back to regular posting. 

On Wednesday night the Perseid Meteor shower took place. Did anyone happen to see any Falling Stars? As I stood in the middle of the garden looking up at the Heavens I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite films and the theme song which is truly one sweetheart of a song. 


My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.
Whatever your plans are have a loving weekend.~x

The Dentist, Mia Farrow & Ted Nugent


Cocaine Princess here.

Shortly you will find out how I ended up braless & eating vending food machine. In the meantime, I have a question--

Have you heard about the Cecil The Lion?

He's an African Lion that lived in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. Apparently he was a famous lion and was identifiable by his black-fringed mane and tracking collar. Cecil, had been studied by scientists from the Wildlife Conversation Research Unit at Oxford University as part of a scientific project and his movements had been followed since 2008. 

Up until a few days ago I had never heard about Cecil. The only famous Lions I'm familiar with are named Simba and Aslan.

Anyways, Cecil is now dead. Walter James Palmer, an American game hunter and dentist reportedly paid US$50,000 to a professional hunter, Theo Bronkhorst, to enable him to kill a lion. Cecil was allegedly lured out of the sanctuary where he was shot and wounded with an arrow. He was allegedly tracked approximately 40 hours later, and then finally shot dead with a rifle.

Cecil's death has caused a world wide outrage including death threats to the Minnesota dentist, protests led by the Animal Right Coalition and even late night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel began to get teary eyed who expressed his disgust at the dentist during his monologue on Tuesday. Kimmel isn't the only celebrity speaking out-- Ricky Gervais, Christie Brinkley and several Victoria Secret's Angels have rallied in memory of Cecil The Lion including actress Mia Farrow who posted an ill-advised message on twitter containing the business address of the dentist.

The ex- Mrs. Sinatra is now facing harsh backlash and accused of crossing the line for doing so. "Are you trying to send a mob?!"

Getting back to the deceased, two men, a professional hunter and a farm owner, face poaching charges in Zimbabwe in connection to Cecil's death. Killing the lion was illegal, because the farm owner didn't have a hunting permit, according to a joint statement from the Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Authority and the Safari Operators Association. If convicted they face up to 15 years in prison.

On Tuesday afternoon, Palmer issued a statement saying he regretted that his hunt led to Cecil's death, but that to the best of his knowledge everything about his trip was legal and even apologized.  


".......In early July, I was in Zimbabwe on a bow hunting trip for a big game.

'I hired several professional guides and they secured all proper permits.

'To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted.

'I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt.

'I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt. 'I have not been contacted by authorities in Zimbabwe or in the U.S. about this situation, but will assist them in any inquiries they may have.

'Again, I deeply regret that my pursuit of an activity I love and practice responsibly and legally resulted in the taking of this lion.'

55-year-old Palmer has since been the subject of social media persecution. The Facebook page, Twitter and website for his River Bluff dental practice have all been taken down after being swarmed with threats and insults. River Bluff’s website included comments from users suggesting an attack on his office. Angry people sent a surge of traffic to Dr. Palmer’s website, which was taken offline. Vitriolic reviews flooded his Yelp page. A Facebook page titled “Shame Lion Killer Dr. Walter Palmer and River Bluff Dental” drew thousands of users. Dr. Palmer’s face was scrubbed from industry websites.  

Hmm, Internet Vigilantism?

 Change.org has even started a petition urging President Obama to persecute the dentist and are even calling him a murderer and a terrorist. Others want his dental license revoked.

Murderer? Terrorist? Oh please, give me a frigging break!

I'm not going to lie, I feel bad for the dentist and you know who else does? Ted Nugent, that's who.

The rocker was asked about the controversy by a fan on his Facebook page, who said: 'What is [sic] your thoughts on Cecil the Lion and Walter Palmer Ted?'

In reply, Nugent said: 

'the whole story is a lie' - seemingly a reference to how the facts have been presented in the media.

He continued: 'It was a wild lion from a "park" where hunting is legal & ESSENTIAL beyond the park borders. All animals reproduce every year & would run out of room/food to live w/o [without] hunting.'

'I will write a full piece on this joke asap. God are people stupid.'


Boy, Teddy sure does have a way with words!

Dr. Palmer is now on the lam after social media users have issued threats against his life.
  

Hmm, I guess this would be a bad time to mention I recently purchased a passport cover made from crocodile skin?

Friday



Cocaine Princess here.

I must apologize for the lack of blogging. I just returned from Chicago (work~related) a few days ago after being there for 10 days. I was literally given less than 72 hours notice about the trip. It was my first time visiting Chi-Town and I had a great time being there. I'll be blogging more about that a little later on. Going through my posts I realized I have yet to finish up the entry of how I ended up braless and eating vending food machine. I assure you, the conclusion will be posted in two weeks. Trust me, it's worth the wait.

A Canadian Tradition




Cocaine Princess here.

Is there anything more Canadian than eating a Tim Hortons red & white donut and sipping a Creamy Chocolate Chill? 



I think not!

Happy Birthday, Canada. 

Still amazing for 148 years old. 

Today is not only Canada Day but also there's a Full Moon and Venus and Jupiter have aligned.

Make Your Wish....

Lovelies Part 2




Cocaine Princess here.

I'm still feeling a little blah-sy but definitely doing better than last week.

*Sighs* Have you ever felt out of sorts? This is how I'm feeling. If I could explain it I would but sometimes certain things can't be put into words.

I'm coming around-- I better come around, I have 2 parties to attend a week apart
and have yet to find outfits. I better hit those malls soon.

Hey, there's nothing like a little retail therapy to perhaps cheer me up.

Lovelies....


Cocaine Princess here.

My apologies for not posting the ending to last week's post. It'll be up next week.  It's been a long week for me. More mentally tiring--- I don't know even know where to start. 

These past few days have been so draining and today I just don't feel like getting out of bed.  

Slipping on the headphones, volume turned to high and cue Euro music baby!! 


Rest assure Lovelies, I'll be back next Friday-- refreshed & re-energized.

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are have a splendid weekend.~x

"She Said It Looked Suspicious"


Cocaine Princess here.

Yes, I know. I have yet to finish off the entries of how I ended up braless while eating vending food machine. I got a little sidetracked with posting other things but here is the 2nd last part.

To review:

Holy Hell!  I ran back to where my car was--- C23--- and then ran back to the intercom and said:

"I'm parked in C23."

I was instructed to walk over to C30 where I would see a yellow colored door marked "Hospital Entrance." After thanking him I didn't walk but ran to section C30 and saw the yellow door....

I arrived at the ER and proceeded to the information desk where I inquired about sister. In no way am I complaining nor do I mean to show any disrespect but why are all hospital volunteer people so elderly? I ask this question only because as much as one has to admire them for volunteering I really wish one of the skills they would possess is "fast typing skills."

The elderly woman was using one finger to type -- and was typing one key at a time while adjusting her glasses and looking at the computer screen. After she cleared her throat I was informed I would find sister in the Emergency Room.

"Right through those doors," said the volunteer.

She neglected to inform me that I had to be buzzed in while I stood there like an idiot trying to figure out why I couldn't open the door. Sheesh!

Once I was let in err I mean once I was buzzed in  I was able to locate sister. There she was--- in a wheelchair.

"Oh my God! Seriously not again" ---- is what I uttered when I saw her.

*Sigh* Once again sister had injured her foot.

As the story goes sister was in the next town over (which explains why she wasn't admitted into our local hospital) with friends when she slipped on a piece of black ice in the parking lot.

"What are you trying to do?" I asked. "Get into the Guinness Book of World Records? This is the 3rd time you've done this to yourself."

"You don't think I know that, darling?" she replied back.

"Why haven't they admitted you yet?"

Apparently there was a long list of patients ahead of us. At least 10 people, some with ice packs on their heads or arms, parents with sickly infants wrapped in blankets and then there was sister--- in a wheelchair with an ice pack on her foot.

As big as the waiting room was there was no place to sit. All the seats had been already occupied while one person was sprawled across two seats. I couldn't tell if he was asleep or if he had passed out. Sister asked if I was okay. She could tell by the look on my face that I wasn't.

"No, I'm not okay. Do you have any idea what it’s like to receive a phone call that your loved one has been admitted into the hospital? And what’s worse is they wouldn’t tell me why.”

“I’m assuming it’s some type of hospital policy.” she answered.

“Well it’s a stupid policy,” I said back.

As mentioned above the sitting area was filled to the max. I had no choice but to stand. I noticed there was some space to sit on one of the long benches however when I went to sit down only half my cheek fit due to how crowded it already was. It was like a human can of sardines minus the stinky smell.

"Have you at least been checked in?"

Sister pulled up her coat cuff to show me her hospital bracelet.

"And what did the ER nurse say?"

"She said it looked suspicious."

I paused for a brief moment. Hmm, she said it looked suspicious. Suspicious? 

"Suspicious? What is that suppose to mean?

Sister shrugged her shoulders.

"Are you sure she was a nurse and not a P.I?" 

Suspicious? 

To Be Continued.........

So My Lovely Ones....


Cocaine Princess here.

It's always hard to get back in the routine of things after a long weekend and since it's a short week I decided to write a short post. No worries, I have a lengthy post for next week.

I recently heard a quote, You Never Need A Sign To Tell You Where Your Heart Lies." 

Those of you who know me (or if you've been reading my blog from the start) are well aware I'm a big believer in signs and messages from the universe. However the above quote had me thinking, "hmmmm...."

So my Lovely Ones, what are your thoughts?

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.
