So my grandma, or the closets thing I've had to one on my mum's side of the family, died the 1st of August. It sucks, it hurts, it breaks my heart and I hate it. She had been quite ill in the last couple of years, and her mind was starting to slip due to senile dementia. She was 86, and would have turned 87 on the 24th if September. Rest In Peace Moster Sonja.

And I just learned that one of my idols, Mr Robin Williams is dead. I've adored that man since I was a little ankle biter, watching 'Mrs Doubtfire', not understanding a word, but finding him funny as hell. You are Free, Geenie, Rest In Peace, Mr Williams, and thank you for the laughter.

I'm sick of this. I'm clocking out for a while, World, so fuck you. Fuck this shit with loosing my favourite people, fuck this shit with being tired and sad.... Fuck this shit. FUCK!!!

So normally I keep my nationality somewhat quiet outside my dreamwidth/LJ(I've mentioned it other places I'm sure, but I cannot grab a link or anything), and it is because the Danish culture can be a little, ok a LOT, weird.

We have a rally twisted sense of humour(just let Humon show you: This)No really, as a nation our humour is either twisted, dark and/or gritty or we're making fun of everything.... But often in a twisted and dark way.... Or sometimes it's just really stupid, campy and the best thing ever. Danes have pretty much been making fun of everything for a very long time, and it fits with the fact that we're a small(-ish some would argue, but there's what maybe 6 million people living in the ENTIRE COUNTRY! There are US cities with higher body counts than that - and they may just take up about the same amount of landmass) country filled with pessimists and nay-sayers. Yes, we the people that has been called the Happiest People on Earth(WTAELF? *looks around* are you sure you visited the real Denmark? The Scandinavian, European one???), are a bunch of pessimists. But then when we're asked how happy we are, and we look bad and examine our current situation, we realise that things did not go as bad as we expected and we're currently rather happy about that. That's my theory, and almost everybody I've asked about this 'Happiest People' agree with me.

I honestly cannot remember when the Danish style of making fun of everything, and breaking boundaries while doing it, got us into the international spotlight as a people, but I think when the world really caught on to how little is sacred in Denmark was when the controversial Muhammad drawings were first published. I know that they offended a lot of Muslims, and they were really racist while also breaking a holy Sacred Law about drawing Muhammad's face or.... something. No really, that '... Something' is how a lot of Danes felt after the international furore hit us. Caricatures and Parodies are deeply imbedded in Danish culture and heritage, and we poke fun at... Well, everything. From our politicians regularly getting drawn as stupidly, silly caricatures, our mocking of the Queen's New Year Speech(but dis her as a non-Dane, and we will hunt you down and destroy you!), to laughing at something like: (CLIPS ARE IN DANISH!
This
Or this little pearl

If you think the guy from the first clip looked more than a little familiar to you, you may have enjoy some of his better known international works such as: James Bond - Casino Royal, Hannibal, The Hunt, A Royal Affair and The Three Musketeers. It's the one and only: Mads Mikkelsen (Humon again... Seriously go read her works, she's funny and really original).and the second is a clip from a sort of cabaret show mixed with satire and caricatures called Cirkus Revyen(this particular clip is from the 2012 version) that is one of the oldest running satire/caricature/comedy/cabaret style shows, and there is a new version each year held at our beloved, oldest amusement park called Bakken. Denmark has a bit of a racist reputation around the world, mostly because we elect stupid politicians and do stupid things like make Muhammad drawings, so one could rightly fear that Revyen is just one long racist, patriotic Danish Wank Fest, which is, sadly, very understandable, but more often than not the only people really made fun of in this show is... Well, ourselves. Sure there is sometimes some really, really stupid, racist sketches in thee show, they're often the parts that are forgotten first.

And all this was just so I could make you all understand why I often feel like I should just shut up about being Danish(and to the first one to post a pastry joke about the so called 'danish' - I hunt you down, remove your eyeballs with a dull, wooden, teaspoon spork, and then I will rip you intestines out through your nose and use them to string you up with, naked, covered in honey over a pit of angry fire ants, ok? :D) or sometimes even apologise for the stupid shit we do, and elect to power.

BUT I just found this article about 3 and I was like "YES!"(maybe waking my neighbours up, sorry R&R). This article just makes me want to walk around in red and white, humming 'Sommer, Sommer go Sol'(it was the summer craze song through most of my childhood as I cannot remember a summer without hearing it.) and just be proud of being a Dane, descendants of Vikings.

Read This!

A self styled PUA(Pick-Up 'Artist') came to Denmark, hoping to write a 'riveting' guide to Denmark, but more importantly her women and more specifically virgins. Instead he finds a country whose women for the most part are very secure with who they are, and they do not need some 'Alpha Don Juan' to sweep them of their feet. We are of Viking descend, we can handle ourselves. And while he eventually(on his last night) manages to get laid(with a nervous 18 year old virgin(poor girl)), unlike his other 'literary works' he ends up writing a book about, get this, not getting to bang Danish women, and he ends up calling it 'Don't Bang Denmark'. He calls us a bunch of unfeminine, androgynous robotic women with no femininity, and 'concludes' that the typical fetching Nordic lady doesn’t need a man because we have the government to cover our asses if things go to hell. Or did he ever might consider that he is simply that repulsive to any woman with a functioning brain? Not just to the Nordic women, but to women everywhere? These so called PUA's make me sick. They are a bunch of misogynistic, repulsive, materialistic, unattractive, disgusting wastes of air, and I really believe that the gene pool deserves to be protected from these sleezebags.

Now that the rant is over...
*GLOMP!*

Hi everybody!

An update from Kira Land.... J dumped me a little over two weeks ago, after we had to leave our apartment because we couldn't afford it anymore(FUCK HIM!!!!) and I'm currently living at my parents house. And I suddenly understand my 15 year old baby brother a lot more.

My little brother, I'm gonna call him Squirt here(he's about two inches taller than me now), is diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. He's well functioning in a 'normal' setting, and it's mostly just small signs that he has Aspergers. My little sister, age 8, I'm gonna call her Brat, has ADD. She's also rather well functioning. But together....

Brat is very smart, and rather manipulative. Very good at breaking out the tears when things aren't going her way, and very good at living up to her nickname. Squirt is usually very calm, but Brat has a way of pushing all of his buttons. And when she does, Squirt loses his rather impressive temper. Brat then runs to our parents, crying, and about 90% of the time they just blame him without hearing his side. I'm not saying our parents don't fight for him, they do, but mostly only for the things he needs outside the house. When it comes to confrontations between Squirt and Brat it feels as if I'm the only one on Squirt's side, and it's very frustrating.

I understand that my parents aren't in an easy place, but FUCK! They saw what this sort of behaviour did to me. They did almost the same thing with me when I was his age. I had a lot to struggle with when I was his age, and my parents sorta just pushed me aside for him, and then Brat when she was born. I ended up fighting a very deep depression, I was actually admitted to the hospital for treatment, and now they're doing it to Squirt. He has issues, many issues right now, and our parents barely know half of it. I sat down with him yesterday and I just offered to listen, and EVERYTHING came rushing out. I asked him if he had talked with mom and dad about this, and he told me that they were too busy with Brat to listen to him.

I just told them that I need to speak with them alone. Without Squirt or Brat. I just... I have no idea how to talk with them about this without loosing my own nasty temper. Squirt doesn't have his temper from strangers.

I know that I've practically made Brat seem like a manipulative little monster so far, but she's not. She has her own issues because of the ADD, but she's also one of the sweetest little girls I know. She's just very gifted at pushing people's buttons, and I know that she doesn't always do it on purpose, but there is a reason why I always call her a brat.

I apologise for unloading all of this on you guys, but I needed to get this of my chest. I'm going to hide back under my covers with my tea now that I've vented, and maybe the world will make a little more sense once I've gotten more than two hours of sleep.

Hugs
Kira

WARNING - RANT POST!!

What is it with people misspelling H.C. Andersen's name?? I was mucking about in some book forums and I saw 15, 15 instances of people spelling his name as Hans Christian AnderSON - WTF???? and when I told them that it's AnderSEN they say that they know better than me, even though I'm Danish and currently live in his home city of Odense. Stuff like this piss me off, I know I should just shake my head at their idiocy but I can't help it. H.C. Andersen is an integral part of the Danish culture, and it sorta feels like they're disrespecting my heritage. Normally I'm not all that patriotic, but some things just rub me the wrong way!!

Churchbells should not, and I repeat, NOT be allowed to ring at 7 freaking AM on a Saturday morning. I can handle the normal chime when it hits the hour - but THIS crap is unforgivable! It only just stopped. That's almost 10 minutes of ringing!!!! Once again I can handle that on Sundays when it rings to service - but not at this hour on a Saturday! It bloody damn well woke me up - and now I can't fall back to sleep!! This is unforgivable!!!!
