Mood swings and Strawberry Jam!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you can imagine the title of this blog is a result of the Dangerous Proposition blog that I did last week. I have been trying to do the suggestions in the order that they came in, but with all the pink in this photo…well, I thought it sorta fit the topic.  Grace things she’s going to stump me with this little mix of terms, but oddly enough this instantly made me think of a comfort food. As women, we all know that comfort foods are very important during PMS which produces more mood swings than a 90 yr old bi-polar senile homeless woman. So, I’m going to share a the simplest little recipe for one of the most delicious comfort foods and most of us have these ingredients in our kitchens at any given time. All you need is Ritz crackers, cream cheese, and strawberry jam/preserves/jelly. Three simple ingredients that will change your life! You just put a smidge of cream cheese on the cracker, top it off with a small dollop of jam. Pop that in your mouth and you’ll think you’ve just had a cheesecake bite! I’m telling you, it is amazing. I suggest you just make a little plate of about 5 or 6 of these, because it is way too easy to get carried away eating these right there in the kitchen as you make them.
So, there you have it…mood swings and strawberry jam are actually quite compatible. Feel free to challenge me with more topics. I still have a few more from the original posts, but I have to admit I am loving the challenge…so bring it on!!!

Serial Killers and Me

The other day I posted a blog asking my readers for topics for me to write about. I presented them the opportunity to challenge me with questions or random topics. I got a few responses and as promised, I’m going to use the topics and/or answer the questions, one way or another. So, one of my absolute best friends, Troy Nelson, posed the question, “Why are you so interested in serial killers?”

I’m not exactly sure why I’m so fascinated with them. The only plausible reason I can come up with is that as a child of the 70s, they were constantly in the news. Serial killers were the boogeyman and I wasn’t afraid of them. I was curious. I’m still curious. What makes them tick. What happened to them as children that they turned out that way. As I studied the most common profiles, I figured out that my father could have just as easily have become a serial killer. Then again, I suppose he still could be one, he’s just not been caught. I swear I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised. I suppose I’ve just always had a morbid curiosity for things that most children my age didn’t. I was far more curious about the devil than I was Jesus and I was far more interested in serial killers that super heroes. To answer Troy’s question….I don’t know, I just am.

Between the Lines

When doing this picture, I had this song in my head the whole time, so here we go again…I give you a link to the video and the lyrics are below. I hope you enjoy it. ♥

Stone Temple Pilots – Between the Lines

Lovely disguise, read between the lines
You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
Three, four you sell what you bought
And there ain’t no magic pen to get back what you lost

I like it when we talk about love

I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Penguins don’t fly
Crocodile Sunday smile
Really like to fish but don’t like superficial people
Shoe store heard it all before
From pearly whites to pearly gates
What do we have to argue ’bout

I like it when we talk about love
I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Leave me all alone before
(Get out the way)
Never did what she was told
(Get out the way)
Seems to play at time of war
(Get out the way)
Less is big and listens more?

Lovely disguise, read between the lines
You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
Three, four you sell what you bought
And there ain’t no magic pen to get back what you lost

I like it when we talk about love

I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Music is Timeless

I love music. I’ve yet to understand anyone that doesn’t, like my mother. *rolls her eyes* I’m not super knowledgeable about music, I’ll admit. I rarely know the artist’s name, song name, or lyrics. Thank goodness for Google! However, I think that is music itself were to dedicate a song to me, it would be this one. Music is always there for us, Time After Time. I chose one of my favorite covers of the song. So, have a listen and I’ve chosen not to provide the lyrics, because I’m pretty sure most of us already know these. ♥

Music is Timeless
If you’re lost you can look–and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you–I’ll be waiting 
Time after time

Virtual Urban Legends

Even in a virtual world, there are Urban Legends. Some are true, some are not. For instance, did you know that when you see an actual Linden inworld, you can ask them for a bear? You will receive a unique bear designed by THAT Linden. This legend used to be true. I don’t know if they still do it, because I simply don’t have any desire for another useless object to sit in my inventory and take up space. Other less believable legends are like the notorious biker gangs on the grid that will find you in real life and mess you up if you ever cross them. I don’t know if that’s true or not. I’ve not heard of anyone that has actually experienced their wrath in RL, but I’m certainly not going out of my way to find out, either. In other several MMOs there are what’s know as Easter Eggs. Where if you do complete certain tasks you’ll receive a certain prize. There’s often hidden loot, that is rather obscure and not well known. Back to Second Life, I’ve heard that there are porn stars and famous people on the grid, but in what world they are stars or famous, I’m just not quite sure. I’ve even heard of Blogging Burnout. I never imagined that this could ring true for me, as I have this insufferable need to blog all the time. However, I’m starting to believe in it as I feel my well of creativity running dry. Please don’t misunderstand. I still love blogging and I absolute love being a Blogger Manager. And to be completely fair, I don’t know that my well is running dry, but I really want to do something more creative…more me and words have failed me far more often that I’d like to admit. So, in the coming weeks, I might be experimenting with some new photography techniques. As for my writing? Well, I don’t know. I’m sure I’ll come up with something. Perhaps more songs, poems, short stories, or just the ramblings of my own mind.

More Love for Devil

I have been so touched by the outpouring of support shown for this event from both the designers and the shoppers. I know that Andrea is beside herself and feeling the love. I don’t think she realizes how many lives she touches with her consistently positive attitude and her memes on Facebook about loving yourself and one another. So, this is another post dedicated to her and the event designed to raise money for her plight.

I love you, Andrea and you simply have no idea how many strangers love you, too. ♥ Oh and I had to do a sexy post, cuz I know how much you love those. *grins*

Bad Habits

“The only proper way to eliminate bad habits is to replace them with good ones.”
~Jerome Hines

You ever notice how bad habits go together like peanut butter and jelly? Think about a bar, before all the no smoking policies kicked in across the globe. Bars were always smokey, because anyone that smokes tends to smoke even more when drinking. How about when we snack while watching TV? I never snack when I’m reading a book, but the notorious boob tube makes me want to munch every time. These days just about any idle time puts a smart phone in our hands, our eyes glued to the screen. Sadly, that has led too many people to think that texting while driving was a good idea. Let’s not do that, okay?
That’s why I’ve recently started assigning one day a week to no electronic devices…okay, its more like no computer, because I’m not quite ready to give up TV and messaging with Josh. *grins* I never said I was perfect. I’ve put a book in my bathroom and I’m trying to leave my phone on my desk. As the cool weather sets in, I’m trying to smoke my cigarettes outside, taking the dog with me. I’m doing my best to replace bad habits with good ones, but its definitely baby steps. I’d love to hear from my readers about your bad habits and ways you’ve gone about breaking them. ♥

Be True to You

“You got to be true
True to yourself
Or you’ll be a fool
To somebody else”
-Yelawolf – “True to Yourself” ft. Bones Owens

I’m just quoting the song today. I’m not going to feed you all the lyrics, because this is not really a song post. Though I do love the newest from Yelawolf, I want to talk about being true to yourself. No matter how old you are, its important to be true to yourself and who you are…who you want to be…what you want from your life. It might be too late for some things, but its never too late for everything. The younger you are the fewer excuses you should have…look at people that move to another country with hardly any money to their names and make something of themselves without help from the government. If they can do, so can you! Seriously, no matter what your passion is, never stop. If you love to paint, then paint. If you can’t afford classes, its okay, paint anyway. Paint because you love it, not because you’re a professional. If you love to sing, but no one wants to hear you sing? That’s ok, sing in your car, your shower, sing your heart out. No one can stop you from that. If you can improve upon your passion, then do it. Be the best at whatever you love as you can. I urge those in their 20s to please listen and don’t let you life get away from you. You think there’s plenty of time, but I promise you that time will escape you and before you know it, you’ll be 40 and wondering what happened to your dreams. Be your own best friend and push yourself forward. Be true to you!

Tomayto, Tomahto

“Prosecuted, stabbed, tomayto, tomahto,” she laughed as she stood watching the bill collector run away after dropping off the bills. Her JIAN Chipmunk Collection :: Companion looking equally intimidating. She looked down to see that the tax man had dropped his 7 – Scientific Calculator. She stomped down on the machine with her Phedora ~ Spectra heels and waved to the men running in fear.
She smiled sweetly as Chip (the chipmunk, duh!) began chewing at the edges of the parcels, “Silly men, surely they saw my 7 – BillPosters sign! Now don’t eat that stuff, we have plenty of nuts inside, just chew it up and spit it out.”
