The Monday Melee « fracas:
1. The Magnificent: Name someone you absolutely adore, and tell us why. --I adore my grandma hursh. She's a wonderul lady who has never been anything but loving to me. I especially treasure a time I visited her and grandpa and we took a walk around the soo locks. She really talked to me about her life, it was amazing. And at that time, grandpa left the spare room to sleep with grandma and they both loved getting to snuggle. He was on oxygen and slept in the spare room so as not to disturb grandma. He has since passed away and grandma now lives in New hampshire. I miss them both.
2. The Muddy: Tell us something about life you just don’t “get”. --I don't get the need to be so mean all the time. The hatred for people on welfare, illegal aliens, even stating your support for something has to have negativity included. Saying you "support breast cancer awareness" on facebook is literally the least you can do, and yet it needs to have a pat on your back included and calling everyone reading it a coward if they don't post it too? Really? Why do people have to go there??? I really don't get it and I'm so sick of it.
3. The Magnetic: Name something or someone good (or bad) you’re drawn to and you just can’t help it. Tell us if you want to change this or not. --I'm drawn the classifieds every week and I look at jobs. I am hoping a dream job will appear for me to apply for. But when it comes time to apply, I get scared. I wish I could be comfortable staying home with the boys. But I know if I worked, I'd worry about them the whole time.
4. The Mainstay: Who or what is something you just can’t live without? Why? --Books. I can't live without books. Take my computer, my TV, I'll feel the pain, but I will go certifiably insane if I were no longer able to read a good story.
5. The Masquerade: Tell us something about yourself we wouldn’t already know. --I tried pot...and I liked it. It just slows everything down. I wish I could hold onto the mellowness it gave me. While I don't want to be a druggie, I even drink rarely, I do wish certain traits would stick around. And I will also say I would trust a pot-head on the road way more than an alcoholic.
6. The Mettle: Tell us about a time you showed courage in yourself, or tell us what you wish you had the courage to do. --Doing Weight Watchers. You wouldn't think it, but I have this weight for a reason, and there are times when I lose and it freaks me out. I think it's because I like being invisible, and really when you are fat people don't look at you much. Ok sure you get your fair share of teasing, but no one really sees YOU. As I lose, I feel like I'm becoming more visible, and it's scary. I'm continuing to work in it, but I think this is one fight that I am doing alone and it does take some courage.
