...See Me Roar (and Burp)

They say the ability to think, to reason, is what elevates humans above other animals. Thinking is good, but it's overrated in some cases. Especially when you come across people who are ostensibly thinking, but in reality they're just blowing wind in an attempt to impress others. Yep, watching how members of the animal kingdom act naturally, without pomp or pretense, via shows on Animal Planet or the Discovery Channel is most refreshing.

The animal way of life is appealing sometimes - just acting on one's instincts. Though maybe men wouldn't agree if they see how some female animals devour the males of their species after copulation. No, I know such behavior isn't practical or acceptable by human standards. Still, there's something so alluring about the thought of just doing it (though not necessarily killing men after sex!) all else be damned. No constraints, no judging, no self-consciousness - just doing what feels right and natural.

Not ardently complaining about human civilization, though. After all, no matter how regal and awe-inspiring lions and tigers (and others of the animal kingdom) may be in their primal and instinctive state, they don't have books. And blogs. And beer. Beeeeer. Rawr!

Huh. Instead of getting medieval on someone's ass, you can get all animalistic on them. WOOOOOO!

Hook me up, I'm there.

....... and the satisfying fag after ..... after ....... after? ...... Gawd, my memory's bad.

Ian: Animalistic... that sounds so, ummm, enthralling (this blog is supposed to be GP). But who am I kidding. Woo hoo!

DaddyP: *Puff* *Puff* *Puff*

Ohhh, who am I kidding. :-D

Roar ... Very animalistic ... I think my mind is moving towards another imagery. Ooopppss!

:P

Have a great weekend ahead.

Hmmm..the laws of the jungle.

The cuckoos must de free to sing, the sparrows to twitter and the babblers to squeak and babble. But they cannot come in each other's way.

Oh BTW, happy Wildlife Week(end). :-D

dyaaaaaaamn! and just as I was about to say... whaaaaaaaa? no tv? no driving [which is probably a good thing - flying's so much cooler] no books? no kissing? no hugging, no necking around... dude, straight out copulation without eminem pounding at the speaker walls in the background is so.... non filmic.

But I'm not saying this is entirely MY perspective [eminem is really not what ... aww shut up H.]

I'm just saying.

Lizza said...

Kyels: Imagery is good. Especially the one you prolly have in mind.

Julia: Savage yet harmonious. Happy wildlife weekend to you too!

H: Straight out copulation without Eminem in the background? Gasp! Perish the thought.

...Eminem? Really? You just made me giggle, sis.

oh lord please...please...please let me just be able to do this. i would take just one weekend of being able to do whatever the hell i want. that's not too much to ask is it?

Kiyotoe said...

Just doing what felt right has gotten me into a whole lot of trouble back in the day.

Sure do miss that kind of trouble though :-(

Hey Lizza, have a good easter with your family.

Travis said...

Books, blogs, beer.

Would that be the three "B's" of life?

Witness Street said...

Beer. To keep us all from thinking. Oh, Lizza, you hit the mark on this one. No one wants to think too much.

Bond said...

Lions don't drink beer?

How come i did not know that?

Lizza said...

whirls: I know what you mean!!! But that means abandoning the ego. I'd abandon mine, but it clings to me like a godforsaken leech.

Kiyotoe: I smell a memory waiting to be written. Indulge your blog readers.

Photo: Thanks, hope you had a good one.

Trav: You smart guy, you. But in your case, you'd have to include baseball.

Migs: Beer is a double-edged sword. It can make one stop thinking for a bit - or make one think even more. That's the way it goes with me, anyway.

Bond: I was flabbergasted when I found out they don't. What do the kings of the jungle do to relax?

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Lions drink Smirnoff. I thought everyone knew that. Geez. Wake up people...

Lizza said...

I hope you told them about your ascorbic acid trick. Maybe lions need their vitamin C too.

""No constraints, no judging, no self-consciousness - just doing what feels right and natural.""

I'm about to put this one to the test. I'm thinking it's likely to require beer ;-)

Lizza said...

Oooohh, cheers then, TB!
