Spreading the Cuteness

You might already have seen these cute pup pics on my Instagram, but for those who haven’t, prepare yourselves because I’m about to inject some adorableness into your day and spread cuteness across the blogosphere.

Okay you all ready? Great! Time to meet Oscar the cutest Miniature Jack Russell I’ve ever seen.thumbnail_20190916_113800

2 weeks ago, my brother got his children a puppy and I finally got some free time to go visit and meet the little guy.

thumbnail_IMG_20190920_191705_830When I said little, I really mean little. He’s just absolutely tiny, possibly the smallest pup I’ve ever seen. To give you an idea of how small, he’s smaller than my shoe, which is also kind of scary to think about because if you accidentally step on the poor pup, things wouldn’t be very good (sorry for the horrible visual. My brain has a terrible habit of thinking of the worst-case scenario).

thumbnail_IMG_20190920_191705_828Anyway, back to cuteness. As well as being adorable, Oscar is incredibly chilled. So much so that he took one hell of a dog-nap on me (I really love chilled dogs though, that sit beside you and relax with you so I didn’t mind).

thumbnail_IMG_20190920_191705_832Oscar just got up beside me and snugged in and fall asleep for over an hour like this. Which reminded me a lot of my dog (that died a few months ago). She loved to sleep on or near you. If she wasn’t sleeping with her head on your lap, she was sleeping at your feet or below your chair.

thumbnail_IMG_20190920_191705_829I really enjoyed visiting this wee guy. I was so tempted to bring him home with me, but I think my brother’s children would have something to say about that and probably kick my butt for even suggesting it. Hope you enjoyed the cute pics. Oscar’s only 14-weeks old, so I’ll probably have more cute photos of him as he grows and be able to spread some more puppy cuteness across the blogosphere.

As always, Thanks for reading!

Anime Torture- Early Morning Anime Alarms

A short while ago, I mentioned that my eldest Niece discovered anime. Making me both very proud and a little scared, because she loves to wind-up and is hell-bent on being annoying anime style. Long story short, she now uses anime related music to wake me up at silly o’clock in the morning (before 6am), to talk about or watch anime and anime related stuff with her.

But before anyone thinks my niece is just incredibly disrespectful. I was still a child when my niece was born and shared part of my childhood with her. So, we have more of a sister-like relationship and she is more like my annoying little sister, than my niece. Also, it’s awesome to share a common interest with her (I just wish she didn’t wake me up so early. Then again, I’m probably lazy and could do with waking up earlier).

Back on track, I thought it would make a fun post, if I rated the effectiveness of my early morning anime wake up calls. So, with that explained, let’s begin.

Lucky Star- Motteke Sailor Fuku:

If you fancy waking up in a state of confusion, wondering what the fudge is going on. This is the alarm clock for you. It will undoubtedly have you springing up in your bed, like Count Dracula in his coffin. However, if like me you struggle to find your words, just after being torn from the shores of Dreamland. You will most likely find yourself uttering random words, as you try to work out where the sound is coming from, in your confused state.
Rating: 8/10

Death Note- What’s up, people?!:

This is probably the most effective alarm you could ever have, so effective in fact that it’ll have you jump yourself awake, in fear and fall out of bed. However, it may actually be a little to good at scaring you awake and may cause you to suffer a massive heart attack, shortly after waking (ironic considering it’s from Death Note). Therefore, I would not recommend using this as your alarm.
Rating: 15/10 with the chance of death.

Attack on Titian- Guren no Yumiya:

Have you ever wanted to wake up feeling like you might have to fight a gang giant happy naked people, at any moment or like you might get kick in the face by a really attractive, but kind of small and grumpy man, at some point in the day? Well, this is definitely an alarm for you. All in all, it pretty darn good at getting you out of your scratcher.
Rating: 7/10

BTS-DNA:

I know, I know this isn’t anime music, it’s K-pop. But I guess, my niece wanted to mix things up a little and throw some K-pop in there. As for it’s effectiveness as an alarm, it’s just too gentle. It didn’t even make me flicker an eyelid. I just heard it and laid there with my eyes still shut, enjoying some BTS, then went back to sleep.
Rating: 3/10
Off topic; Glob RM voice! He has this Californian/L.A. accent and gosh darn it, it’s just so smooth and dreamy. It literally stops you in your track. Even if you’re not into K-pop, I would highly recommend just listening to RM talk. It’s amazing. (Hmmm, I wonder if RM’s voice would make a better alarm? What? Too creepy?)

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood-Yui (Again):

Need that little extra boost to get out of bed in the morning? If so, why not try this alarm on for size. The song itself is incredible (one of my favourite openings), but because of its instrumentals and beat, it makes a brilliant alarm. The intro alone is enough to wake even the deepest sleeper. Not to mention, it’s a bit of a good mood song and singing along, is almost irresistible.
Rating: 9/10

Pokémon- Gotta Catch Em All!:

Fancy waking up feeling like a king, like your day is going to be one amazing adventure and like the world is your oyster. Of course, you do. If you have to leave that wonderful place we call bed, you might as well feel great doing it. That’s why I would highly recommend this song for your alarm. Its intro is loud enough to rise you from your slumber and the rest of the song is so upbeat, it’ll make you want to get out of bed and have an amazing day.
Rating: 10/10

We’ve made it to the end of my anime alarm ratings. Hope you’ve had fun and maybe found you’re new morning alarm music. If you, have also found yourself in the presence of a young anime sadist or can think of any anime openings, that would make a good alarm, let me know in the comments below.

As always, Thanks for reading. I’m off now to get some sleep, before I’m woke up again by the beautiful screams of “What’s up, people?!” (Death Note).

Sleep Paralysis Conspiracy Theory (and other theories).

thumbnail_a0d6a6fd-a838-4d81-bec5-b9898fd0dd4aBeing a suffer of sleep paralysis, I’m just fascinated to hear people’s theories on the condition. I’ve come across a lot of wild and crazy theories, but there has always been, a few theories that have gone beyond this and are just down right bizarre. Somehow, these theories have also gained a lot of support and people actual strongly argue, them to be true. So, I’m sharing them with you guys and hopefully you’ll find them as entertaining as I did:

A vampire did it- That’s right, some believe sleep paralysis is caused by vampires. The theory suggests, a vampire breaks into your room and hypnotises you, into a trance. This leaves paralysed and unable to see clearly. Hence why you see the vampire as a shadow figure. This allows the vampire to feed of you, without being identified or you fighting back.
I find this idea hilarious, but some truly believe in this theory. The biggest problem I have with this theory is, bite marks. If a vampire was feeding of you, they’d have to leave a mark. No marks, no vampire. However, if this is true, it’s pretty glob dam terrifying.

thumbnail_d7235764-d79d-4470-8bf1-b4f1d0f773e4You’ve been kidnapped by aliens- The more I read into this theory, the weirder it got and there’s quite a lot of variations, of this theory. My favourite version involving, aliens pulling up, in their spaceship outside your bedroom window. They jump out and break and enter, via your bedroom window. The aliens, somehow drug you, as you sleep and carry you off. They then take you for a spin in their spaceship, while performing ungodly acts, on your body. When finished, they return you back home, and very kindly ensure, they place you in your own bed and pull the covers over you. It is while returning you, that people believe, the drugs start to wear off and you awake to see the aliens, standing in your room, however you are still too anesthetized to move.
It is very possible that in aliens exist. The universe is just too big, for them not to. But the whole abduction thing, very unlikely. Like, why the hell kidnap humans. On the greater scale of things, the human race is not important. If aliens have the technology to reach earth and fly around unnoticed, then humans wouldn’t be of much interest. We’d be like gold-fish to them. If they did want earth or human subjects. With that sort of technology, they could just take them with little effort. Also, why bother returning the humans and go to so much trouble to ensure their wellbeing. It would be so much easier, to just throw them out the back of the spaceship.

Stands by my bedside and stares at me. Occasionally, snaps its jaws together, making the sound of bones, being hit together.

Your astral body left you– This theory reminds me a lot of insidious. It involves, you being so stressed out, that your astral body, decide to leaves you. It literally, finds your stress so unpleasant and insufferable, that it packs it astral bags and leaves your body empty. Other entities can sense your body is empty and rush to take over your body. Your astral body realises this and quickly returns to your body, before the other entity can possess it. This excitement, can wake your conscious self. If this happens while the astral body and body are merging, you see the shadowy figure, of the other entity, but are unable to move, because your astral body is not completely merged, with your body.
This theory is so creepy. The thought of a body snatcher, trying to take over your body, is beyond horrifying. However, this is a little too close to the plot of insidious, so I find it hard to believe. Still an interesting theory though.

Lies across my legs or body. This feels so realistic, I can feel the heat from its body and stomach move, as it breathes. Has glowing white eyes, with no pupils.  

Shadow people conspiracy- Based on the idea, that everyone with sleep paralysis, sees the same shadow people. This theory considers, the shadow people as a higher form of life, that can’t normally be perceived by humans. It doesn’t go into much detail on this, but I’m guessing this implies, the shadow people are either, from another dimension or purposely staying out of sight of humans (maybe using some type of technology). This theory suggests, the shadow people are tormenting us while we sleep, for fun and entertainment. Kind of like, how a cat plays with a mouse, before killing it or how some humans torture animals, for amusement.
A really interesting theory, however I feel a bit left out. I don’t see the shadow people. I see creatures, that look nowhere near human. I’m sure there are many other people, that see creatures and not shadow people, so this theory can be debunked. Despite this, it’s still the most fascinating theory, I’ve come across.
