I've been MIA for a couple of days. I looked at this topic and started a couple of times... then tossed it out... just wasn't feeling the topic.
Whoever doesn't feel a simple topic like "write about your day"? Well, that would have been m... Read more
I've seen several folks blog about a guilty pleasure as a food... chocolate, or some other thing we might feel is a "bad" food, and even how we control/manage it. Someone mentioned manicures and pedicures (a great pleasure, to my way of thinkin... Read more
Pick your favorite definition of style: from the literal "1 n sharp, slender, pointed instrument used by the ancients in writing on wax tablets, 2 any of several devices similar in shape or use (a pen, an etching needle, a phonograph stylus..."... Read more
My most embarrassing moments, without getting overly specific, have generally had to do with not being "normal", with not knowing the social norms, with failure to be perfect in that foreign arena known as human relationsh... Read more
Hmmm... do I have hobbies? I normally think of hobbies as "crafts", something that produces something... things like knitting, or scrap-booking, or photography... playing a musical instrument. When I think of it that way, I scratch my head and... Read more
I write about my "heroes and sheroes" all the time. Don't want to repeat that... you know I am a huge fan-girl of Sister Madonna Buder, Leanda Cave, Mirinda Carfrae, etc. (all triathletes). But let's talk about the daily people whose lives I'd... Read more
OK, short and sweet topics, but being me, things get complex:
Favorite Book - if I had to pick ONE, as in to take to a desert island, and have ONLY one book for the rest of my life, I think it would have to be the Bible. Not because it is ... Read more
Does anybody NOT know I miss my dog? Diamond had soul-filled almond-shaped eyes that would melt your heart, wrapped in the sleek athletic body of a German Short-haired Pointer. She would rest her head on my knee as I'd sit here at the computer... Read more
Haven't posted the link to the topics recently, but here it is, in case someone wants to borrow this list of 31 blog topics (originally written for December, for another online social media outlet, and clearly for youngsters navigating the passa... Read more
A boring topic, to my way of thinking. We all had one, or more kisses that we considered "firsts".
My first childhood kiss (a "movie star kiss", per the kisser), was delivered by a co-worker of my Dad when I was pre-double digits in age. ... Read more
I have to admit I love the inner meanings of holidays... but not the external trappings that have become WAY too commercialized. Holidays mark the passage of time through the years... and sometimes it seems to me that they are flying by way too... Read more
I thought this one would be easy... but then again... it's what I do all the time... write about stuff that happens in my week. But when I parse out "happened to you" and somehow can't get the "young people" view out of my head... I have to be ... Read more
And why, of course!

Here's another one that made me think the topic list was designed for youngsters... those still in high school or college. The hint after it says: Are you a nerd, jock, prep, bully, etc. If you don't have school, or are home-schooled, talk abou... Read more
