Cherry Dieded




Cherry had a good, happy, and richly varied life, which we can barely scratch the surface in our short tribute to Cherry.  

Above anything, she loved to laugh and she was notorious for her infectious smile.  She was a people person and truly shined when she was with her friends.  Cherry was sarcastic to a fault and found the wittiness of people intoxicating.  She was loyal to the ones she cared about and would always be there for them. 

She wasn't always the perfect daughter and she got into her share of trouble, but she loved her family fiercely even if it meant to love them enough to stay away. 

She strived to find success in her life and at the end I am sure she finally found what she was looking for.  We will miss her but we will know she is never far from our thoughts.  We will smile when we hear the Vikings have won or see the waves crash on the shore of a beach...remember to live the life you want~ what would your Eulogy say...

Hitting Rock Bottom

We are taught that strength is good and a person who is perceived as strong is successful.

So, we start to make ourself strong and we become rocks.  We workout so that our bodies are solid and hard as a rock.  We expect our men to show no weakness to be strong, to be our rock.  We take comfort in our strength because we are strong, but are we really?

Throughout our lifetime, we have moments of strength and weakness.  You must have rocks in your head if you don't see that.  You have to dwell in the weakest parts of yourself in order to appreciate your own strength because when you see a rock coming, it hurts less.  We should not strive to be strong but to understand our weaknesses.

We are only what we have the strength to perceive.  We are rocks.

Blocked

I have't really had much to write about lately.  I guess I was looking at updating my blog as a chore and not a treat.

I got lost in the demand.  I had to remind myself why I stop here and reflect, why I write and what it does for me...this is really all I needed to do.

 I stop here to share a part of myself as I reflect on events in my life.  I write because I have something to say, even if it is about nothing at all and I enjoy my time here.  I have always found strength in words, but I am a little shy in the real world, and sometimes my words get lost.

Not a lot of people know that about me, but online I can share the words I really feel and people can know me in a way that I don't share with very many out there.

 This is where my voice can be heard, even if it is just in my own room.  I have written this before, I don't write for you, I write for me~ It is my strength...

Hiding in the Shadows

I really do not understand those chatters that like to hide in the shadows with another name or pretend to be someone else.

 I mean don't you go to chat to talk to people you know, why all the games?  You lurk in background, but why?  What do you get from it?

 I don't like the idea of someone spying.

If you want to know what I am doing , where I am going, or who I am talking too you can ask and you do not have to resort to such foolishness.

I guess the people that imp are in this category of pretending to be someone else.  I know it happens but again, why?

I am not trying to be a hypocrite because I have done this.  I have changed my name in chat and pretended to be someone else but I never was happy with people not knowing who I was and I guess that is why I just don't understand and it feels dishonest to me.

I am sure you are going to do what you want, lurk in the shadows and/or pretend to be someone else. As you can see, it leaves me with more questions....why?

 I just wanted you to know that I definitely do not like it.

Earth is Full~ Go Home

This is a slight warning to you...I am a registered, card-carrying smartass and I am not afraid to use it.

The online urban dictionary describes a smartass as a person who, by means of purpose or not, uses sarcasm to have a laugh.  A person who, on a regular bases, annoys the hell out of people with their sarcastic-attitude.

For those who have no clue what sarcasm is, it is the use of words that mean the opposite of what you really want to say especially in order to insult someone, to show irritation, or to be funny.

I am rarely trying to annoy or insult someone when I am being a smartass.  I get a kick out of making people smile and I refuse to star in your psychodrama...

I am sure this is not a surprise to you because I have been this way for many years. I guess I have a strange sense of humor and I love the finding and giving the unexpected in word play.  Of course, you have to be smart enough to get it~ so do your part..and enjoy the laugh...

Getting Closer

Now that the weather is getting colder, it is time to get a little closer to the ones you love.  I read this article about snuggling and this is what I learned...

Well, in case you didn't know it, most girls love snuggle and they are looking for someone who is an amazing snuggler.  So how do you know, if your snuggling is up to par?

You should always make your body look snuggle-friendly.  You do this by showering on a regular basis, make yourself look larger to ensure maximum snuggle space, dim the lights and bring your secret weapon, a blanket, this is kryptonite for girls.

 Wait for your prey to join you, smile and make eye contact~ just don't be creepy but scoot in a little closer to her and enjoy your snuggling time~

Banishment

Every year I like to know the words that people think should be banished from the Queen's English because of mis-use, over-use or general uselessness.

Which words would you banish...

This year we were hit with a polar vortex  that forced people to bring out their winter swag and made people go a little cra-cra but if you had your bae, a certain skill set,  and a list of survival hacks, you were able to get through it with flying colors.

We also saw an increase of foodies probably because you could have curated boxes of treats delivered right to your door and an increase of friend-raising to get monies for charity which has made us a Charity-nation. 

It would not take enhanced interrogation for me to select some words for their general uselessness.

What takeaways do you get from my blog post?
