Therapeutic Misadventures

There was no theme song for the news stories. You just knew it wouldn’t last in the public eye as something of interest. Once we tallied up the number of Americans lost and heard their stories we moved on to other excitement the media had to offer. The actual clean up is so tedious and unsexy.

But they are still out there; cattle, sheep, goats, dogs, cats and people.  Relief workers are  struggling in shifts to offer the basic requirements to keep those who survived alive. I was struck by a story, written in his unique style, by fellow blogger, Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge whose niece was sent to Kathmandu with a relief organization. Phil also brought to light the canine workers being deployed to search and recover humans and animals. We rarely think of what happens to the domesticated and wild neighbors who share in the acts of God.

Saturday Situation

So I have realized that I am addicted to blogging because of my multiple accounts on several platforms but they honestly all have a purpose. I don’t enjoy going on to a platform to check out my feeds and get bombed with whatever disturbing stories or images someone on my friends list deemed appropriate for public consumption. It maybe in their eyes but maybe it isn’t in someone else’s. I want to get my opinions of life out there because everyone has something important to say. Today is the 31st anniversary show for my favorite radio station in Philadelphia but I am not going. It’s not that I don’t love the station or the artists who are performing-it’s about the people who attend. It has gotten somewhat out of control with the drinking and smoking. As a former smoker, I choose not to put myself in position to have a relapse. Almost one year off nicotine and I’m living a healthier lifestyle. Anyway today will be spent working on blogging and doing a local job. Until another inspiration hits I’m going to go get some sun. ❤️

Friday Wrap Up

So I’m just sitting here relaxing in my room and thinking about my day and I’m still very energetic because it was a very good day and I’m moving in a positive direction with my blogging adventure. I am very pleased with the fact that I was acknowledged by one of the best celebrity bloggers out there. Perez Hilton responded to one of my tweets this morning after I messaged him about the gossip table program on Vh1. Then outta no where I notice that he liked one of my earlier Instagram selfies. Oh I never thought that I would get so bent over by a famous person acknowledging me. Oh well it happened and the day moved on. Something else happened also but this is not exactly news,Nina who is Ian Ziering’s mother in law liked a photo that I shared on Facebook,it was a corvette selfie of Ian & the black I8A4RE. a newer generation of the black corvette from the Steve Sanders days of Beverly Hills 90210. After the excitement was finished,I spent the remainder of my day reblogging other stories from other bloggers on WordPress. Also reblogging many stories from my friend Perez Hilton. I did definitely stay on track eating wise today even though I was wanting to be a bad girl I wasn’t. Definitely enjoyed my tofu and Chilled pineapple drink.

Is It Wrong to Give Your Kid an Extraordinary Name?

Painting On Scars

Hello My Name Is... (Image by Alan O’Rourke of used under CC licensevia)

Every coupled friend I have here in Germany is, as of this year, a parent. And looking upon the names bestowed upon the new generation, I must say I like them all. Or at least, I don’t hate any of them. This is impressive when considering that, if my partner and I ever want to get into a fight, we simply start discussing names we would hypothetically pick for a child. Just give us five minutes and soon we’ll be shouting, “Bo-ring!” “Flaky!” “Hideous!”

And then we run up against the unanswerable question: Is it harder to have a mundane (a.k.a. boring) name or an unusual (a.k.a. weird) name?

While I enjoy the sound of my own name—as many if not most people do—I haven’t enjoyed seeing Emily end up in the top ten of the most popular…

It’s Not Just You

The Daily Dahlia

Confession: probably my biggest pet peeve on the planet is when people start a question with “Am I the only one who…?” No. You’re not. You’re not the only one who writes that way, reads that way, likes that food, likes that band, thinks Benedict Cumberbatch sounds like a Game of Thrones character or looks like someone squeezed Spongebob and stuck googly eyes on him…you’re just not. But. There’s a different kind of “Is it just me?” feeling, and that’s the stress of when you’re drowning in something and nobody’s talking about it and you feel like everyone’s got it together but you, and so you don’t wanna say a thing, and it all snowballs until you basically wanna curl up and die. I know that feeling. It’s why I wrote this post after splitting with my first agent. So in case you are wondering any of these things, I…
