Happy birthday, Agent Orange. No, wait. Yes.
It's about time we can think about Agent Orange as something great! Hope you have a wonderful day, Kent.
And, as always: My spoons are your spoons.
- you are my dearest friend, my heart and my confidant. You're there for me, and you've seen me at my worst and you didn't look away - you just sent me more spoons, even when you had none left to give.
To all the world, has completed another trip around the sun. It's his birthday. He's in need of extra spoons at this time of year...
So please, everyone: share this around, send Kent some spoons and some birthday blessings.
Flood his stream with spoons!
Because without Kent, I'd probably run out of spoons and I wouldn't be here either.

After Saturday's Copenhagen terror attacks (which I wrote about here: goo.gl/LGpWLA) the hashtag #JegSmilerTilbage has begun to spread on Twitter with a similar sentiment as the Australian #illridewithyou (I'll ride with you) after a gunman held people hostage in a cafe in Sydney in December.
#JegSmilerTilbage means "I smile back" and is a message to Muslims that we refuse to let the terror attacks cause mistrust between Muslims and non-Muslims, and that we still will return a smile.
The hashtag was created in response to an article (goo.gl/mjf6Ws) that the Danish newspaper Politiken published yesterday evening with with the headline (translated from Danish):
Muslim after terror attack: "I am afraid the Danes won't smile back."
In the article Maryam Hussain, who is Muslim and have lived her entire life in Denmark, expresses her concerns about whether the terror attacks have changed the way Danes look at her.
"I am afraid that I won't get the same smile back from the Danes as before. That they won't smile back at all.
I am still the same as I was before the weekend. I am just not sure that the Danes see it that way.
I will always be one who smiles - even if the Danes don't smile back."
These concerns are real and exactly why this is an important time to make it abundantly clear that we all stand together on the same side. We smile back. #JegSmilerTilbage
— Tahia Carioca, when asked by an interviewer what qualities a good belly dancer should have. Quoted in the September/October 1971 issue of Aramco Magazine.
I know that last part is silly; they're all fine, but it is difficult not to worry.
It sounds like the police are doing a good job catching the people responsible for the shootings.
I have no words for the victims' loved ones, because there are no words.
I can't imagine the pain and chock which must be associated with losing someone in a crazy event like that.
I want us to stick together through this, to be as calm and impossible to hold down as the Norwegian people was when the Breivig massacre happened, but I do not have high hopes.
I wish I felt otherwise, but I am afraid the Danes are too scaredy cat to pull off the same grace in the face of tragedy.
It pains me to no end that right now some parents, parents of a less pink hue than my own, are struggling to explain the racism and anger errupted by this in a way so their kids can sleep soundly at night and don't grow up jaded and despaired, while themselves having to deal with the emotional backlash of so many other Danes thinking of them as the enemy. My stomach aches when I think about it.
We have to be better than this.
We can be better that this.
Vi får da aldrig bæredygtige løsninger, når de bliver væk, tænker jeg.
Men så ser jeg mig selv krybe i udmattet flyverskjul, når mine bedre skændes om syge og modtagere af overførselsindkomst i ondsindede, fordomsfulde vendinger, og så ser det med dialog pludselig så umuligt ud.
Jeg føler mig som en gazelle, der skælder sin art ud for ikke at prøve at snakke fornuft og behov med en angribende flok løver.
Det er urimeligt, at bede folk om at yde mere end andre, men samtidig tror jeg også at man må erkende, at det ville være ekstremt gavnligt hvis de gjorde

What ever timezone my body finds itself in, I can always be dead certain that my mind is having a blast somewhere else.

Oriental dance styles and all but every fusion thereof.
I like to think that my love for the dance makes up for most of my shortcomings as a dancer...I am nothing special skill- or talentwise; that being said, I have been bellydancing for almost fiften years now and I am a drama queen and fusionista at heart, so I do believe that I can hold my own in most of the areas of belly dancing (or whatever you prefer to call it) and perform professionally on a regular basis.
Drawing and painting and scratching and sculpting and all. That. Jaaaaazz...
Complete amateur; struggling to finish e-ve-ry-thing.
After a ten year break from drawing and some serious changes when it comes to my attitude towards my creative endeavours, I've taken it up again, mostly to my own delight.
Tropical fish keeper since 1997.
I love all kinds of animals but tropical freshwater fish is the only one I can keep and care for responsibly with the life that I'm leading.
Atm. I am down to two water tanks (1x128L and 1x325L) which makes me kind of proud of my own self-dicipline!
Reading, retorics, history, languages, ethology, human behavior and much, much more.
Learning new things in general; trying to keep my mind agile.
Mac and iPhone user, mostly by coincidence.
Not a fangirl; I judge and abhor all operating systems equally.
