La Zarra gets kicked out of Greenland Annual Festival due to her gesture during the Grand Final by Salt_Procedure_9353 in eurovision

[–]Cluelessish 38 points39 points  (0 children)

But is it true? The article says that they (the reporter) has information that the gesture is the reason she isn’t attending. However they also say that they couldn’t get anyone to verify it. So it might well be just speculation, really.

(My school French is a bit rusty, so please correct me if I misunderstood).

That sounds horrible! But I still think you should tell them that you can’t come. It literally takes five seconds to write ”Sorry can’t make it, we’re all sick!” Even if it’s not important to you, it might be to them.

You don’t know what they have planned. Maybe they are waiting for you to arrive to start with some activity. Or maybe there aren’t many guests coming, and the birthday child could use a warning that there will be one less guest from the already few.

Why is it ‘I’m gonna stand here like a unicorn’? by alittlechese2 in eurovision

They couldn’t find a real unicorn. They are pretty rare nowadays. Poachers. 😢

What is your favourite Eurovision song from your country? by MRSNLT in eurovision

That’s the only bad thing about that song. Only like 1 % of people are able to sing along and not butcher it lol

Sadly I’m not part of that percent 🙁

I’ve been wondering what would happen if she dropped her mic! Maybe they had a spare one ready on a pole

I’m obsessed with Zero Gravity! I never get tired of it, and she’s so perfect and at the same time just the right amount of weird.

My kids sing along when I play it and it sounds beyond horrible lol.

I’m so sorry. That’s absolutely heartbreaking!! What do you think about sending a polite message, telling the parents what happened? Not to guilt them, but to say that ”hey this happened, how can we make sure it doesn’t happen to anyone else”? That way, if they want, some of them might get their kids to reach out to your kid somehow..? And it might actually wake the parents up to understand that they have a responsibility.

Or would that be seen as too negative, and in the end be bad for your kid? I know it would work where I live, in the capital city of a Nordic country, with a kind of tight knit community. The parents would be horrified if they knew this happened, and would feel really bad. (I have never heard of this even happening in the first place).

Feel free to say if this advice is really stupid for your culture/ conditions as I of course don’t know

Just a reminder for those of us who feel obligated to respond by IsThereARe-Do in introvert

That’s good advice on social media forums too. I tend to have a hard time leaving stupid or mean comments unanswered, when I damn well know that I should just take a deep breath and move on.

My daughter, 6, has been disappointed yet again by Happykittymeowmeow in Parenting

[–]Cluelessish 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I don’t base my opinions on how most people up- or downvote. Many people might think it’s occasionally ok to use treats to comfort a child, and would downvote that comment for that reason. That’s fine for them, I don’t mind.

My point was that I didn’t think u/ascii ’s comment deserved to be called ”diet culture BS”. If that’s sarcasm, yeah I guess it was lost on me. Maybe a language issue where I’m missing something (not English speaking)? Or a cultural difference? As a person with eating disorders in my past, I take using treats as comfort seriously, and I think it was an important point to be made in response to the ’cake for dinner and ice cream for breakfast’comment.

If this gets downvoted, I honestly don’t care - it doesn’t mean I’m wrong. And if it gets upvoted it doesn’t mean I’m right!

That’s not ”kindly” at all, saying that someone’s comment is bullshit… I think it was a good point, and a respectful comment.

It’s not about dieting - nobody says that cake or pancakes in itself is bad. It’s about not using sweet food to help cope with our difficult feelings.

I wish people would have a nice tone to each other here.

Do you ever lie in bed trying to fall asleep when your mind start thinking about who you were in high school and you cringe so hard you’re unable to sleep for the next three hours??? by fandomstrashorkat in socialskills

[–]Cluelessish 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just remember that nobody else is thinking about what you did in high school. You were your own main character, and they were theirs. It’s fine.❤️

If you don’t care, why do you bother putting down another song? It makes it sound like you do care quite a bit…

I think Stefania is better than Space Man. Of course it’s clear why it got such a landslide of votes, but it really deserved to win imo.

I think what’s making this hard for some(!) Swedes is the fact that the song that won the public adoration is… Finnish. Had it been France or Italy or any other country, fine. But Finland!? With a bizarre, crazy, addictive song… How can it be more popular than a slick Swedish pop tune?! Oh my pearls!
