The Great Wall of China, the Berlin Wall


keeping people out, hiding and protecting what's on the other side, the inside

i seem to be a wall

just like the other Great Walls of the World

Gob Smacked!

One of my FAVOURITE phrases that I have been inclined to use on a daily basis is gob smacked. Definition? According to is "being totally speachless.unable to think of anything to say".

2010 has been one of THE most gob smacking years and as I travel along life's path, I am sure to have many more gob smacking situations. I met and connected with famous people (IRL), got hired to do t.v. work, developed, wrote and produced my own t.v. series, and began to see "visions" of my clients. Pretty gob smacking in my estimation! ;)

Now I have given you the definition, use it in a sentence: "I felt particularly gob smacked when I ..... (fill in the blank).

giggles and snorts
p.s. one of the famous people I met - the FABULOUS Mr. Chip Coffey

You Know I Kid Around A LOT.....

You know I kid around a lot....but there are some things I think should be taken seriously as a Mother Unit!
  1. ALWAYS have libations handy for those days when you have just about had it and if you don't have libations always ensure your neighbours have a fully stocked liquor cabinet!
  2. ALWAYS insist on having a room that has a lock on the INSIDE for those days when you need that Mom timeout!
  3. When the going gets rough - find something to whack, burn or destroy. Go to your local Monster Truck Dealership and see if they'll take you for a test drive and run over a few things...!
  4. Change your name and don't tell the children - can't take the credit for this - my BFF found this to be highly effective when she changed her name from Mom to Sukkey.
  5. And when push comes to shove, invite yourself to the house with ample food, a swimming pool and libations - works GREAT for another friend of mine and she's honest about it.
  6. Write yourself a prescription for your Alone Time - give it to your family members and record their faces as you do for a source of amusement in those trying times
p.s. I am giggling and snorting while I write this and thanks to @thedeMentedmom for the inspiration

Oh Black Spot, Keep On Rollin....

You know I am one that professes to never be fearful nor a worrier.....wellllll....... yesterday when I was in the shower I noticed this really bizarre and kind of painful black spot on my hand. I must admit I got a little freaked out by said spot (yes you are all probably thinking something like "Out damned spot" or "See Spot Spot run" - so ha, ha, ha, ha). So I did what I do best, did some research, Twittered a few peeps that all results indicated it was probably a broken blood vessel brought on by weight training.
I told you this was going to be a bit of a weird Blog....giggle, snort and weirdness!

How Shall I Blog

Now you know.... I am starting to blog and holy cow there are so many things I don't know about the whacky world of blogging.

So here goes.....basically it will come from my heart, promote my thoughts and thinking and shift as I shift through life. The older I get the less I know and the more I question. Sometimes it will be words, sometimes it will be poetry and sometimes it will be video. Yes you read correct - I was a poet and writer before I learned to speak so there could be some of that.

So sit back, let out a few giggles and snorts along the way and enjoy this ride called "Life"!

What I Learned In 2010

It's the start of a brand new year and so I was inspired to generate a list of the top 10 things I learned this year - some silly, some not-so silly and some serious. So, here goes:
  1. I am allergic to hair dye - natural colour now unknown and soon to be revealed...
  2. Reaffirmed - cancer stinks.
  3. Hugging and kissing loved ones every single day is truly important (see #2) and mandatory in my house.
  4. I am surrounded by phenomenal people - thank Twitter and my IRL peeps for that.
  5. All we need is Love - the rest is a bonus.
  6. Ask and Holy Hannah you shall receive.
  7. Listen to your intuition - it is rarely wrong.
  8. I am good on T.V. (knew I could do theatre but not t.v.)
  9. Keep it simple and keep it focused.
  10. Reaffirmed - who cares; do what's right for you and your loved ones.
So that's it - now go and kiss and hug your fave peeps!
