@Hilary :

My daughter is 3 years old and she was allergic to dairy products until recently. Everyone in my family loves cheese, so since we learned my daughter was allergic to milk, we started giving her tofu everytime we had cheese. She LOVES it. At the grocery store, we have a hard time taking it away from her.

When it's time to pay and we take it away, only for a moment, she always shouts really loud : "My Toooffffuuuuu!"

I'm now addicted to tofu also. It makes a pretty good snack.

TENACITY is the quality displayed by someone who just won't quit -- who keeps trying until they reach their goal. Anything really worth doing takes persistence, perseverance, and stubborn determination!

I've been thinking about this for two days now, but I really haven't found anything that suits me. I really have to work on that this weekend.

I really like "Toooofffuuuuu"!
I wish I had come up with it :)

Hi Yoovie, I have thought about this... I think my personal battle cry is more a yell than words. If I had to go with words then it would have to involve some profanity too!

Cowabunga reminds me of TMNT (also a dork) which reminds me of pizza. So that one doesn't work for me :P I guess mine is just a simple "D*$# right!" or "He*$ yeah!" Heavy metal music helps too :)

If a chubby guy like Mario can run and jump all around the mushroom kingdom, I can certainly do this!

Mine has remained Cowabunga my entire life (dork extraordinaire) but I'm liking the idea of profanity

I love the concept of a personal battle cry. I don't have one, but if I did I think that it would have to be "Toooooooooooffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu!"

With my struggle to get enough calories and protein each day, tofu has become my new best friend.

FREEEEEEEEEEEEEDOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!

We all know this famous line, hollered like a madman by Mel in Braveheart. Sometimes it seems necessary to release all the pent up tension, stress, doubt, self-loathing, fear, negativity and hopelessness in one raging scream of determination.

I am known for doing this. The first time it happened, I was about 6 years old, frustrated beyond my limit while my father was trying to teach me to ride a bike, my brand new bike, shiny pink and everything.

I was sooooooooooooooooo angry and I wanted to give up. I stalked (limped) off into the field parallel to the long business driveway we were next to, turned my back on my intrigued father, took a deep breath, closed my eyes and screamed.

"AAAAAAAAARGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIMMMMMMMMMMM GONNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
WWWWWWW!"
*breath*
"COWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABUNGAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!"

My father almost peed himself laughing, but it worked. I didnt fall again until a month later and that was due to my own stupidity.

So if you were to be so frustrated with yourself or your circumstances, that you would be able to go out into a field and let out all the negativity... what would be your battlecry?

It could be a mantra or just some nonsensical word.

I'd like to know... emoticon
