Writer's Block: Toy box travesties

What childhood toy did you desperately want that your parents refused to give you? Do you still think about getting one?




The troll dolls. I remember being practically mesmerized by the troll commercials when they'd come on during Saturday morning cartoons. My mother, who is a very VERY devout catholic, thought the dolls looked demonic so there was no way I was ever getting one.

I played dirty though. My aunt and I went shopping one time and caught me staring at the troll display. So she bought me one :D After I saw the Olsen twins on Full House, my doll never seemed more lifelike.

Sarcasm: There's a Right Time for It

Let me start off by saying I am a very laid-back person. But once something or someone raises my hackles...oh, it's definitely ON. Nothing irks me more than people who think that by being sarcastic they somehow have the upperhand of a situation. If you do plan to use sarcasm, make sure you have all your facts straight because it will definitely go kaboom (and deservingly so) in your face when it turns out you are wrong.
 
I appreciate sarcasm provided it is done right and at the appropriate time. One of the reasons why sarcasm already has a bad rap as the lowest form of wit is because so many people use it as a bullying tool. You backhandedly insult someone while stroking your own ego, which, I may add, is already flagging since you have stooped down to this level. This is a coward's way out. Have some balls. If you're going to insult someone, do it directly minus the superfluousness.

Hula, Hula

For the past 2 weeks, I've started to learn how to hula. My goal is to toned up my abs. Ironically, the more I spend time doing the dance and looking at the mirror, the more I appreciate my soft belly.

The hula, combined with the belly dancing, is making me love every inch of my body. It's a fantastic and empowering feeling, to look at myself in the mirror and say, "You look awesome with your jiggles and battle scars, pop bear!"

Writer's Block: Born this way

If you were a cross-breed between two animals, what animals would they be, and why?

Cool! My question got posted and I actually caught it :D I guess I'll be a cross between a leopard and a swan.  Leopards are solitary creatures like me and swans are graceful, which I aspire to be. I'm a big klutz :(


To commerate this awesome coincidence, let's listen to Miss Lady Gaga & dance our bums off!
