Random topic for this week

Thanks again to my best friend yays her!

Who are 5 women you think are gorgeous?

Ok…I’m actually going to list 6 women I love to look at because to me that’s more how it is than who I think is or isn’t gorgeous.  It’s my personal preference so I’m not going to label them when I honestly just don’t think that way.  Will even include small versions of my favorite pictures of theirs if I can find them.  And this is in no particular order, just the order I think of them.

Katherine Heigl – pre-Grey’s Anatomy because for me, she’s too thin now & I thought she looked much better early on than now.


Tiffany Taylor – Playmate of the month November 1998


Charisma Carpenter – Cordy on Buffy & Angel, has also been on Charmed, CSI, The Expendables 1&2, Supernatural, & tons of other things


Jessica Alba – Been in more movies than I can count & even owns her own company…what’s not to like?


Milla Jovovich – Model & Actress


Alyssa Milano – Have always thought she was awesome…lookswise & personalitywise


Feel free to give your opinions or comments or your choices & have a great rest of the week!


I know I know I just posted but….

After I posted the last 1 WordPress told me that was my 200th post so just wanted to say thank you to everyone who follows me!  It’s so appreciated & so glad you’ve stuck around thru all the changes that’s gone on over the last 2 1/2 years!

Also, saw this while looking for something on Amazon & had to share it cause it made me crack up…link is under the picture just click it!  Hugs to all!



This week’s update

I’ve lost some weight this week but since at least part of it was water weight…I’m taking it with a grain of salt & being happy but not doing cartwheels about it.

Otherwise, most of this week has been the same old same old just waiting till school’s out so I can finally not be so fricking worn out all the time.  Did go to the movies with my kid today to see Furious 7 & even tho he grumbled about going as only a teenager can, he said it was good & wanted to see the next 1 when it came out too.  So yays me I did some good there.

Also, something that’s been kicking around a bit in my head for a while….just feels like the time to write it.  The ones who have been following me since the beginning know that my posting & even the length of my posts can vary greatly.  And lately, I’ve been struggling to do more than just a few sentences & I almost feel like I’m cheating everyone who follows because I can’t write more.  My logical mind knows that’s a load of horseshit but that little girl who loves nothing more than to please others does have a bit of a fit about it from time to time.  Tho even my deepest thoughts are still pretty straight forward.  I will admit it’s odd sometimes because I follow so many blogs that…the writers are amazing & offer such a great insight that it can often move you to tears.  I’m just not that kind of writer & once in a while it makes me doubt myself just a little.  Since there will never be any deep thoughts or florid prose here. *chuckles*  But I enjoy doing it too much to stop so I just do my best to give myself a pep talk & go on with things as best I can.  I’m not really looking for anything here just…was a rare glimpse into my head that’s actually more deep than most things I post are *laughs* & deeper than most things I think honestly.  So thank you all for listening & I hope your week ahead is the best that it can be!



This week’s pic of the week

This isn’t my normal pic of the week but I had to share it anyway.  I remember reading this on tumblr a couple of years ago & it stuck with me.  Then recently I saw it shared on facebook & I had to read it again & now share it even if it isn’t just a picture.  It might be true & might not be but it’s better than any other picture I could share today.  And all of us at 1 time or another has felt like this poor little cat…just needing to be loved, & basking in it when we do get it even if it’s only for a few moments.  You never know how much your small act of kindness might help someone.


Ugly by author unknown

Everyone in the apartment complex where I lived knew who Ugly was. Ugly was the resident tomcat. Ugly loved three things in this world: fighting, eating garbage, and shall we say, love. The combination of these things combined with a life spent outside had their effect on Ugly. To start with, he had only one eye and where the other should have been was a hole. He was also missing his ear on the same side, his left foot appeared to have been badly broken at one time, and had healed at an unnatural angle, making him look like he was always turning the corner. Ugly would have been a dark gray tabby, striped type, except for the sores covering his head, neck and even his shoulders. Every time someone saw Ugly there was the same reaction. “That’s one UGLY cat!!!” All the children were warned not to touch him, the adults threw rocks at him, hosed him down, squirted him when he tried to come in their homes, or shut his paws in the door when he would not leave. Ugly always had the same reaction. If you turned the hose on him, he would stand there, getting soaked until you gave up and quit. If you threw things at him, he would curl his lanky body around your feet in forgiveness. Whenever he spied children, he would come running, meowing frantically and bump his head against their hands, begging for their love. If you picked him up he would immediately begin suckling on your shirt, earrings, whatever he could find. One day Ugly shared his love with the neighbor’s huskies. They did not respond kindly, and Ugly was badly mauled. From my apartment I could hear his screams, and I tried to rush to his aid. By the time I got to where he was laying, it was apparent Ugly’s sad life was almost at an end. Ugly lay in a wet circle, his back legs and lower back twisted grossly out of shape, a gaping tear in the white strip of fur that ran down his front. As I picked him up and tried to carry him home, I could hear him wheezing and gasping, and could feel him struggling. I must be hurting him terribly, I thought. Then I felt a familiar tugging, sucking sensation on my ear – Ugly, in so much pain, suffering and obviously dying, was trying to suckle my ear. I pulled him closer to me, and he bumped the palm of my hand with his head, then he turned one golden eye towards me, and I could hear the distinct sound of purring. Even in the greatest pain, that ugly battled scarred cat was asking only for a little affection, perhaps some compassion. At that moment I thought Ugly was the most beautiful, loving creature I had ever seen. Never once did he try to bite or scratch me, try to get away from me, or struggle in any way. Ugly just looked up at me completely trusting in me to relieve his pain. Ugly died in my arms before I could get inside, but I sat and held him for a long time afterwards, thinking about how one scarred, deformed little stray could so alter my opinion about what it means to have true pureness of spirit, to love so totally and truly. Ugly taught me more about giving and compassion than a thousand books, lectures, or talk show specials ever could, and for that I will always be thankful . He had been scarred on the outside, but I was scarred on the inside, and it was time for me to move on and learn to love truly and deeply. To give my total to those I cared for. Many people want to be richer, more successful, well liked, beautiful, but for me, I will always try to be Ugly.


Random topic for the week

Yays best friends since she just gave me a number so I could do this *laughs*

If you could bottle one moment in time what would it be?

It would be of the 1 time I can remember when I had Duncan sleeping on my arm, Nicky right behind my head, Sammy laying by my tummy, & my kid’s butt against mine since he was sleeping in my room because of a big storm.  That was a perfect time because I had my closest family right there with me & I wouldn’t trade it for anything…even now when it makes me cry.


TMI Tuesday

There are several unique and weird holidays that take place all over the world. This TMI Tuesday is about the month of April’s special observances. What’s Up April? …


1. April 1 is April Fool’s Day (All Fools Day), a Western tradition of pulling pranks and hoaxes.
– Did you play any April Fool’s jokes on someone?  Yes, everyone at work played a group 1 on the kids…made them think wifi was on the buses.
– Were you the victim of an April’s Fool prank this year?  Nope thankfully not.
– What is the best April Fool’s hoax you’ve ever pulled?  This year’s was the best I can remember.

2. What is your favorite unusual or non-traditional holiday to observe?  Best friend’s day because they’re awesome & should be celebrated.

3. Do you observe any unique local or family tradition holidays? Briefly tell us about this holiday.  Not that I can think of other than our pets’ birthdays.

4. April is National Poetry Month. Share your favorite poem with TMI Tuesday or write a poem and share.  I haven’t read or written poetry since college so I think I’m out of luck here *laughs*.

5. This month is also Stress Awareness Month. What stresses you on a daily basis?  Work, parenting, weight loss, pain & so many physical limitations because of my weight, people in general…

6. April is National Humor Month. Name 3 stand-up comics or comedic actors who make you laugh?  I loved George Carlin especially for his animal observations & 7 words you couldn’t say.  I also like Anna Faris.  And I love to watch Buzzfeed because even when you’re learning stuff they know how to amuse you.

7. April 22 is National Jelly Bean Day in the United States, however, it can and should be celebrated all over the world. How will you celebrate Jelly Bean Day?  Black jelly beans *drools*

Bonus: The flower for the month of April is the Daisy. How or what do you feel about daisies?  They’re probably my favorite flower…any color or type of daisy is awesome to me.

Have a great rest of the week!


This week’s update

I lost just a little bit this week but have also been doing alot of thinking.  I’m considering quitting Weight Watchers…at least for the summer, & just sticking solely with the stuff that goes with my Fitbit.  It’s harder to fib a little on it so maybe it’ll be the better choice.  And if anyone does use fitbit & would like to be friends, you can IM me on my flickr account & we can go from there. *smiles*

Have been on WoW more than Secondlife this week tho it’s still been a week of watching movies/TV & reading more than anything.  But my belf DK did make it thru 2 levels today so I’m a happy camper then since I wasn’t sure she was ever going to get anywhere.

Other than that, that’s about all that’s really gone on.  So hope the rest of your weekend is good & hope the week to come is too!

PS – & don’t forget me a random number 1-121 or 2 for my random topic on Wednesday! *grins*


Another Pic of the Week!

Got the selfie camera on WoW this week since I actually have played a little bit after pretty much not touching it for over a month.  Played a bit with my best friend the other day & thinking about working on my human priest or belf DK but not sure yet.  Anyway…here’s a picture of my main on WoW.  Hope you have a great rest of the weekend!

And here’s this week’s update

Gained a bit of weight but I know why so no worries.  Other than that, been just another week.  Gave myself a slight makeover on SecondLife but haven’t done much else on there.  And just waiting for school to be out in real life.  Tired alot of the time so just been coasting along, watching movies & reading the last few weeks actually.  Hope things are doing good for everyone & promise to write more once *laughs* there’s more to write about!  Have a great weekend & upcoming week!
