Random - v.9.10

  • LOL, I need to explain this post from last week.  On plinky, you are prompted with a question or one line that you respond to, or answer... I learned right away that it doesn't post the Plinky prompt when you publish it to the blog, so I have been trying to remember to add the 'prompt' to the beginning of my post, so that when you, the reader, look at it... it makes sense.  Some of them are kind of strange and not really a question.  So the above linked post was plinky asking me to craft the perfect excuse.  I was in a feisty mood, and came up with that.  Hope that helps, LOL, I did make some changes to that post... but just as an FYI for the future: I will try to post the plinky prompt at the beginning of each post.  Sorry for the confusion.
  • A gripe about the new Facebook... Fan Pages.  UGH.  So you 'become a fan' of flip-flops, camping, texting, hugging, laughing, etc. - what is the point of this?  Sure, I like all those things, but I don't need to 'become a fan' of the page on facebook.  The things I'm a fan of are real things, like Central Park, Minnesota Twins, Dunkin Donuts, The Office, Post Secret, etc. - things that, when they have news, they can post an update and I can be in the loop.  I don't need an update on flip-flops yet I'm still a fan of them, in real life.  I just don't get it.  Follow this link to browse fan pages... you'll be surprised how many non-sensical things you can be a fan of.
  • The Scavenger Hunt is almost over!  I'm sad, but Nicole has promised that we'll have another starting May 1st, so I have that to look forward to!  I can't wait for the new list, the suspense is killing me.  Here is my progress so far... I only need a self portrait to complete it, so I'll obviously finish... I'm just trying to come up with a way to make it interesting.  I posted one shot on my daily photo blog, and mentioned that, as someone who loves to have her picture taken, I'm lacking in thought for how to make it 'pop'.  Part of me wants to get all dolled up, play and have fun while the other part of me wants to show myself in a more natural fashion [just rolling out of bed in the morning, right after roller blading,  or something like that].  I have a couple days yet and several photos to fall back on if I can't come up with something.
  • I've been so extremely happy as of late.  Chalk it up to seasons changing and life in general being fantastic.  I've found myself going to update the Facebook status and deleting it because it's like... too positive!  Seriously.  Is the possible?  I used to read positive updates and be like 'ugh'... for no good reason.  If someone is happy then they should be talking about it; not enough happiness is spread around this world of ours.  Back in October I posted this TFT about Optimism and I had such a great response to it!  Since then I feel I have made GREAT progress in becoming more optimistic ... without really thinking too much about it.  I think a huge part of that came with me moving on with my own life and really beginning to close a chapter in my life... a chapter that I relied on for happiness, for several years.  It feels good.  I haven't 100% closed that chapter, but I've come a long way in moving on to new chapters [I've always been a slow reader ;)].  Another huge part of my optimism is surrounding myself with good people, true friends, and an overall drama free lifestyle.  When I find myself facing the more negative people or drama-filled situations.. I instantly find myself drawing into pessimistic feelings.  Life is good, I don't need drama or negativity.  Surrounding yourself with people that you have a fantastic time with and truly enjoy is one huge key to life!  I wish I would have known this many years ago... I have amazing friends!
  • Quickly, one last note... On either May 21st [after work] or May 22nd [bright and early] I will be driving to Missouri to spend the weekend with one of my amazing friends, Renee!  I couldn't be happier!!
