Free hugs!!!

7 Jun

According to wikipedia, a hug is a form of physical intimacy, that usually involves closing or holding the arms around the neck, back, or waist of another person; if more than two persons are involved, this is referred to as a group hug. A hug, sometimes in association with a kiss, eye contact or other gestures, is a form of nonverbal communication. Depending on culture, context and relationship, a hug can indicate familiarity, love, affection or friendship. One person may hug another as an indication of support, comfort, and consolation. A hug can be a demonstration of affection and emotional warmth, sometimes arising out of joy or happiness at meeting someone. Sometimes, hugs are a romantic exchange.

Unlike some other forms of physical intimacy, when both parties mutually engage in the act, a hug can be practiced publicly and privately without stigma in many countries, religions and cultures, within families, and also across age and gender lines,[citation needed] but is generally an indication that people are familiar with each other. An unexpected hug can be regarded as an invasion of a person’s personal space, but if it is reciprocated it is an indication that it is welcome. Also, a person, especially a child, may caress and hug a doll or stuffed animal. Young children will also hug their parents when they feel threatened by an unfamiliar person.

Unlike a kiss, a hug is not usually undertaken as part of a ritual or social act. However, it is a custom in Spain and, by proxy, in Latin American countries for male friends to hug (as well as slap each other on the back) in a joyous greeting, such as on a New Year.

The other day i heard on the tv that, in a certain region in north Spain, 1 out of every 10 adults didn’t have any friend. I don’t have many people i consider friends myself, maybe 4 or 5 (plus my mom, i’ve always considered her my friend though we argue quite a lot), but i have some people i go out with sometimes, and i hug them too!

Now we have internet, we have fancy cars, we work lots to get more money to buy more stuff…and we miss spending time with the people we care about, if we care about anyone else i mean.

So today i am sending you all this virtual bear hug, wishing you a great week and hoping that you hug someone today!!!

Shoulda woulda…

Just the other night i was talking to a friend about love and relationships, and how sometimes we tend to do things just because it is “what we are suppossed to do”, when things should just come natural.

With Valentine’s day coming my special one suggested we could buy each other something nice and do something romantic. I liked the idea as i love both buying and getting gifts and doing something with someone you like is always nice but…are we doing it ‘cos we want or because it is what we are suppossed to do for V’s day? I am romantic, and passional, and tender everyday and i refuse to act a different way just because everything that surrounds me is red hearts and pictures with puppies and teddybears ;p
It is the same with christmas. Everyone is good to each other, and you see these commercials about supporting kids in Africa and all this is awesome but, shouldnt we be good people and help each other all year?
Or we can be selfish and mean the rest of the year as long as we do our little charity in christmas?

Do we need some marketing to tell us what we should do?

With all this said, I have to admit i got inspired by Tainted tunes, the soundtrack of the Tainted Love Hunt (server is currently down but i hope they fix it soon), and i am getting ready a special setlist for pre-valentine’s party at SL Addicts on Friday with some love songs…but i must warn you i wont stream the tipically romantic stuff ;p

Totally offtopic but…

Arent my new pets lovely?
