Kidist Paulos Asrat or Kidist P. Asrat as she likes to be known in her professional ventures, is the blogger behind cameraluc.blogspot.com and kpasrat.blogspot.com , beautyforbodymindandspirit.blogspot.ca and has contributed to the American Thinker.
Kidist was born in Ethiopia and identifies herself with the Amhara people and considers herself to be Caucasian. Kidist and her family fled Ethiopia around 1974 after the fall of Emperor Haile Salassie. At the time Kidist was roughly 11 years old, the family moved first Paris and then London, and the United States after which they finally settled in Canada. Today Kidist lives in the multi-cultural hub of Toronto, a fact in itself that is baffling with her views.
Kidist works at a clothing store; however there is speculation that she must have family money or support to fund her lifestyle and travels (mainly to NYC).
Kidist is a firm believer in belief that her blog is an intellectual treasure trove, dealing with high-class fashion, architecture, art and social issues affecting North America (Canada & The United States). Not only is her work of a very high quality but greatly appreciated.
However her blog reads far more as her own personal diatribe against, Gays, Muslims, Liberals, Women, Asians, interracial couples and immigrants. Kidist is all for equal opportunity hating.
Kidist's Greatest Hits/WTF Moments:
As a child Kidit presented flowers to the Emperor, this memory is clearly very important to her and has possibly allowed her to build up her elite status in her mind now that she lives in a world far from that of her childhood.
Kidist is not of the opinion that Asian's can understand or play classical music or dance in the ballet. Her expertise in the matter is the fact that she has studied, violin, piano and sung in classical choirs in her youth. The fact that the National Ballet had Chinese principal ballerina, performing in 'white roles' appears to cause her much rage.
Kidist is creepily obsessed with the child of her neighbors, a young white couple they have a child who is approximately three years old. This little boy has a Chinese caretaker/Nanny. Kidist is not pleased by this arrangement and is constantly spying on the child and caretaker, and approaching the parents to 'warn' them. She is also very worried that the caretaker is attempting to lure the child into accepting other races to the point where he will marry an Asian woman.
Not understanding the presence of Native American's in the Thanksgiving Parade.
Immigrants of the Asian/ Muslim persuasion
Kidist has a lot of pent up rage for immigrants, these range from delightful complaints that they are spending more money that herself to the fact that they bring their own language and culture to Canada. Women who dress in their native attire and speak their own language trying to ruin the real Canada (not the native Canadian's mind you). Immigrants ruin the prices of homes and bring with them their own food and scents changing the landscape. Multi -cultural Canada will be the death of Kidist.
Kidist enjoys attacking the Obamaâ€™s (everyone including Bo is fair game), apparently The President is incapable etc and Michelle and the girls have appalling clothing choices.
Kidist occasionally ventures an opinion on movies and award shows. Popular Movies = bad, especially if they have a tinge of race to them. Oh and Tina Fey has a potty mouth.
Kidist is friends with Lawrence Auster and Laura Wood (The Thinking Housewife), and keeps in touch not only by email but has visited them. She treats their words and thoughts as high intellect and quotes them regularly.
Kidist also goes out of her way to not only stare and complain about interracial couples to people serving her in restaurants but does the same for Gay couples. The lack of response she receives from others is perceived by her to be agreement and she appears to be convinced that Canada is full of people who like her are appalled by interracial couples, gays and immigrants but are too cowardly to say so publically and need her to speak out.
Kidist doesn't allow comments on her blog. While you can email her, she is very quick to threaten to report you to the HRC ,the dissonance is strong with this one. You are however encouraged to contribute to her endeavors at publish a book.

once we had a bat fly in upstairs, my daughter who was about 10 at the time wanted to put a plate of food out for it to feed it! (My husband, a broom and a pillowcase were the solution) Said daughter is now a veterinarian so he love of living creaters has pevailed. (along with massive student debt)
I first read "once we had a fly upstairs" and thought: come now...

I agree that I wouldn't have gone that far but it seems like they didn't anticipate going viral. I wonder if they have any regrets?
Hmm. Why do I think that viral is exactly what they were going for?

(Hello. I have been away for a long time, but the Turpin story brought me back.)
I have read through the two threads, and I don’t think anyone yet has posted that according to the Sunday Chronicle (UK), Louise Turpin’s sister. Teresa and their half-brother want to adopt the younger Turpin children.
The article also reports what someone reported above about Louise telling her brother that she wanted to have a fourteenth child and that she thought their family could get a reality TV show and make lots of money.
On that subject my first reaction is that the renewal of vows tapes may have been, in Louise’s mind, a sort of audition. My second reaction is that, sadly, the Turpin parents may still get money from selling their story, giving interviews, etc. It’s a different kind of “reality,” but she may still get her “show.”
Welcome back @EmCatlyn!
I doubt the parents can make money off their "story." There are laws that prevent people who have been convicted from making money off their crimes. The kids, on the other hand, could probably make some decent money with a book, but who knows if any of them have the cognitive ability to do something like that
I hope they can all recover to the point where they are happy and can live as independent lives as possible.
OK, someone mentioned it earlier so I'm going to start it. Feel free to add. The Tony/Mykelti wedding drinking game:
One shot if/when:
1. Tony tries to get Kody to pay for something or 2 shots if assumes that Kody will pay for something.
2. The word "taco(s)" is used.
3. Tony vetoes one of Mykelti's decisions.
4. Christine painfully talks about how much she just LOVES Tony!
5. The word "mocktails" is used (just cracks me up)

It IS bizarre but trust me, that’s exactly their point. Social commentary. It’s bizarre for me to see crotch dropping pics of everyone’s newborns clogging up my FB feed and instagram.
I am a millennial and every single flippin’ person does this now. New parents are obsessed with themselves and many are just TMI about it!
No, PLEASE I don’t need to see Kate from high school’s placenta.
No, I don’t need to see Danielle naked in that tub with her cherry faced newborn covering her chest.
No, I don’t need to see pictures of Madysyn’s turd the toilet.
Now that’s brain bleach worthy!
I really find this couple’s cat birth pics to be quite relieving.
Maybe the people in your circle do this, but it’s a complete exaggeration to say that every single millennial does this. I shared very little about my daughter and her birth online, mostly because I value her (and my) right to privacy. I have yet to see a single person I know personally post graphic images or videos of themselves or their partners giving birth.
(I don’t doubt you and others have had very different experiences. It just bugs me when people make generalizations in topics like this.)
