Where I go when I am quiet on Spark

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Not anywhere really. emoticon

I think a lot...and I "lurk" instead of interact... I read things...but I don't comment.

I a sponge...and I try to figure people out, like I'm on CSI.

As in "figuring out", I try to see where people are, how they got there, etc. etc. and their plan of action and how or why things are working or not working for them.

I also look around all those Sparkfriends in my list. ** sigh** emoticon some have been missing for over a year. emoticon I wonder how they are doing...where they had gone to. Hey...if you are reading this: update your status so I know you are alive! Thanks, much appreciated.

I read the ads that pop up on Spark now. I remember when the first major one was "laughing cow ice cream" ... and now there is a Sensa add. Really? Sensa? Whatever. Ad money is ad money - gotta keep Spark free for people right? but Sensa? I get the Weight Watchers ads, but Sensa? Yeah, I'm a Sparkdiet-snob I guess.

Like everything, the quiet is cyclical...things are going around and around - mainly in my head on the future... yup, still knocking that old chestnut around trying to crack it. Soon.

Speaking of which: What I'd love to do is work for Sparkpeople. There. I said it out loud. I think I'd be great on this team...I just don't know how to go about doing it. Maybe I will figure it out eventually. Heck, maybe, just maybe Sparkguy will see this and say "hey, that girls got something to offer! I wanna get her resume!"

But then again, I don't have thousands or even hundreds of Sparkfriends (on purpose really - I wanted the list to be manageable) and I have yet to have a featured blog or anything....well, except I have the tag "motivator".

I love that title by the keeps me on the straight and narrow - to be upheld to a higher standard. A higher standard for myself. That's just me and my pride in my work that I've done. I'm steady. I am still here. That is got to be worth something... for someone... somewhere.

See? I told you. I go quiet on here because I am figuring stuff out.

Hey...funny story.

I was at a wake (that is not the funny part - but the wake was pretty jovial considering) and I was talking to people who have known me for at least 20 years...and always as "heavy" (a nice way of saying "fat" huh?).

Well.... wouldn't you know - one lady did not recognize me at all!! and her friend turned around and then patted my stomach in disbelief that I was so thin! LMAO!!! These ladies are all in the 70's, and honestly, look pretty good for their age...they said when I get to there age, I will probably look 40 because right now I look 20! LMAO!

THANKS Ladies!!! You made my day! I must be doing something right!

Anyway...I have Spark to thank for that....and my Sparkfriends over the years.

OK - back to the dungeon I go... Oh, the dungeon is my basement that I am reorganizing and cleaning up a bit. Cluttered house - cluttered mind!

    I lurk too. And I'm with you as a Spark-diet snob, I don't even like the WW ads, I see them and react the way you did about Sensa lol emoticon (my sis is on WW so my dislike for them is a bit personal)
