Not a huge basketball fan since Jordan stopped playing with the bulls… but tonight I watched the Pistons hand a butt woooping to the Lakers and it felt good. GO PISTONS.
Most of the times memes are what saves me from not having anything to write… actually I do not write much because I still think I stink at it. But I am practicing here and there. Well a meme yesterday pissed me off. I have beef with this meme.
At first it start much like any other meme. But then it starts giving a tone to things that makes bloggers seem like self centered people. Are bloggers narcisitic… not necesarily. I think it is human to crave attention and empathy from others, I do not find blogging to be unhealty or selfish. I think it is something that people looking at it from the outside do not understand. Much like motorcycle riding, unless you have experienced it, I think you should have no opinion on the matter.
Why is it that non bloggers think that we as a group are just a bunch of people with either too much time on our hands or too self involved. That gets me into the obvious questions. Why do I blog then… and I think mostly because I want record of where I am at in life right now. Is a journal to me in many ways. But beyond that there are many other reasons that I did not even knew about. Like meeting some great people that have sage advice.
So I have beef with this sneaky meme… am I over reacting?
Onesome: School– Since the school year seems to be over (your mileage may vary: some of you are already in summer sessions!): what was your favorite year in school? Yeah, the one you had the best time in or learned something special or had that learning breakthrough?
Senior year, I did more than a couple
Twosome: Bus– Hey, how did you get to school in the early years? Walk? Bike? Mommy van? Bus? …and for those still attending, how are you getting to and fro these days?
Early years I used to walk, then bus.
Threesome: Stop– …and when did you stop going to school? …or did you? Are you still at it? Amy plans to go back for those who are out of the system?
I graduated HS 96 college 99, but I will be starting to take ASL in the coming months.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is now pulling all kinds of young witches and wizards away from their Playstations and into movie theatres all across the country.
That got us Muggles to thinking…wouldn’t it have been cool to be able to point your wand at the bully that pushed you around on the playground, say “EXPELLIARMUS!”, and watch them fly back against the wall? I am a Potter fan and “Expelliarmus!” is used to disarm not jus trow people around but whatever
1) Which magical power would you like to have (in order to further the cause of good for mankind, of course)? Which magical power would you like to have that you would keep hidden, guiltily, cackling about it under your sheets at night?
To help mankind would be the power of happiness. Making people happy at the wave of my wand by fixing their perils. Now the one that I would keep hidden would be mind reading.
2) If you had a flying broomstick, would you use it? Where would you go?
I would use it to have fun, but not to travel long distances. I would use apparition for that. Then I would go to Barcelona and Japan on the same day.
3) If you could briefly turn yourself into an animal, what would it be?
Well, if fictional count, a dragon for sure. If real probably a Jaguar.
Bonus) Do you believe in magic?
For me this is a loaded question. I think that magic as in Harry Potter type of sense no. But I believe that life itself is magic, love is magic and it all comes from God.
Do the Theater Thursday
In honor of Ice Cream day which commemorates the day in 1786 that ice cream was first sold in the United states let’s start with a cool warm up. Using the letters of your favorite Ice cream reveal some quirky things about yourself. Don’t really have a favorite so let just go with ICE CREAM.
Clean my glasses 3 or 4 times before a movie starts at the theater. I do not want any little specs affect my view.
Enjoys salty foods more than sweets.
Carry my wallet in the back pocket of my pants no matter what.
Return movies before they are done or I worry about it like I have broken some kind of law.
Eat raw hotdogs… well not raw but just right out of the package.
Absolutly have to take a shower every morning.
Morning person until the end. Thanks Mom
Now that we’re warmed up let’s get humpin and have a total meltdown!
This week … a getting to know you hump!
01. You are a source of light. What are you and why?
Well the Sun off course. I think I am a warm person and I think of the sun as warmth and confort and happiness in a very carebear kind of way.
02. There’s a huge neon sign above your head everywhere you go … what is it flashing?
Sleep and F*… darn George Carlin… every time I hear neon sign I think of that comedy bit. I think if there was one right above my head it would say danger, and then in smaller letters… will tell you the truth and you might now want to hear it.
03. If you could be anyone’s blog, whose would you be and why? (Provide a link to that blog)
My number one choice right now I cannot link to but I would love to be that blog because I find a wealth of information about life just candidly put. But if I can be someone’s blog I would be Sabra’s… I mean how sexy is it read it
04. If you could have a vanity phone number, what would it be and what would it spell?
4LOGTAR… I have actually looked for it 475 4827.
05. Look around you …. name two odd things in your vicinity and explain why they are are there.
Easy. I have two little action figures. Let me show you a pic. One is the little Dinosaur from toy story… this one actually has a story to it. I saw him for about a month in my parking lot. Every day I would walk by but I figured that it was a kid’s that maybe dropped it getting out of the car or just play. I hoped that someone would pick him up. But after a month of him just being in the ground I took him and now he is roams around my desk. The other one is a Dragon that my partner in crime bought for me in one of our visits to Chicago. I am a dragon lover and have a pretty big dragon tattoo in my left arm.
