May My Heart Be Kind, My Mind Fierce And My Spirit Brave.

May My Heart Be Kind, My Mind Fierce And My Spirit Brave.

I am sure there is a difference between a wish and a prayer, I am just not too sure what the difference is, and also, I do not know exactly which is better.
To compound my problem further, there are hopes.
It seems to me that a hope lies somewhere in the void between a wish and a prayer.
It's complicated.

I am not much of a sweet talker. I like things plain. I am a fan of the obvious. To me unpleasant truth is better than pretty innuendo. I don't have the ability to say the right thing at the right time. I wish I did.

I am a "Just the facts Ma'am". sort of girl.

So here's the facts: I need prayers, and wishes and hopes and also some good vibrations and positive thoughts thrown in just for good measure for my Soul Sister who is facing a challenge that may require more than one person should realistically be required to handle by themselves. So if it is not too much trouble, could you take a moment to ask God, or, Jesus, or Allah, or Buddha or Oprah, or whomever you consider your higher power for a little love for my girl?

She is kind, and she is fierce, and she is brave, but even bad-ass warrior chicks can use a little extra something now and then.

Vivian's brain may be smaller than a peanut, but she is no dummy. Who would want to be the inspiration for Poodle flavor Kitten Chow?

Not Dead, Just Stupid

Holy shit.  It has been so long since I've been here I don't know how to blog anymore.
(I know you're thinking that I never really knew how to blog in the first place, and you are correct.  Mean, but correct.)

Anyway, I posted this lovely office picture just to see if I could.  If you are admiring my lovely office picture, (Which I cannot give proper credit for) then good for me.

Good for me, dammit.

Welcome to the Road Kill Cafe

My name is Luann, I'll be your server.

Today's special is a tasty little dish I like to call-- "The last Bitch that stiffed me..."

Except I'm 10, I'm not allowed to say "Bitch".

 So, what say we just keep that little tidbit between us, shall we?
Now then, what'll you have?
 I hear the Frito Pie  is to die for!

Almost Sad

I hope to God that you were really selling candy bars. 

You were small and almost sad.     
I was one of the people in the crowd.  I almost didn’t notice, except, I did.


Where the hell is a Cop when you need one?
Not there.  Not then.  I know because I looked.    

We both know you shouldn’t talk to strangers.
I was a stranger, someone else’s mom, not yours.
You said you were not alone, that your aunt was inside the restaurant. You were all right you said, you were selling candy bars, you said.
We both know you shouldn’t talk to strangers, don’t we?

I hope to God you were really selling candy bars.

We Need to Talk

There is something I think I should tell you. (Don’t you just hate when people say that? Me too, it makes me want to impale myself with the sharp end of a Snickers Bar). Here’s the deal. I cannot, do you hear me, CANNOT! Keep a secret. If you are knocked up, or you tattooed Speedy Gonzalez on your ass, and you want to confide in someone, tell your Priest, or your Doctor, or the guy in line behind you at the DMV, but whatever you do, do not tell me. I blab.

I can’t help it.

I am the girl who announced to my whole Earth Science class on our ninth grade overnight field trip, that while I found the constellations of the Milky Way Galaxy mildly interesting, the pot plants the neighbors were cultivating in the back of their barn were fucking amazing. Sorry Neighbors.

And sorry too, to my friend Anita because I told your mother that it was actually a fox, not the family cat that bit your finger, (Yes, we captured a fox and held it hostage for several days when we were ten years old. Don’t ask.), but I was afraid you would die of Rabies. Terrified actually, can you even imagine how long I would have been grounded if Big Judes (My Mom) found out you were foaming at the mouth and it was my fault?  Forever, that’s how long.

I would like to be able to report that I am more trustworthy now that I am almost one hundred years old, but, alas, that is not the case. Just last year my friend L. ask me to keep my big trap shut about an insanely cool project she started, The Secret Agent L Project, perhaps you have heard of it?

Anyway, L ask me what I wanted for my birthday (Because she is swell that way), and I told her that I was so ridiculously old that a gift would just remind me that my days were numbered, so really it would be better to skip the gift, unless of course the gift was a prescription for Prozac, because that is really the only thing that would have made me happy thought that she should do something nice, like anonymously nice, for someone else and then send me pictures, because that would make me happy, and then I would probably forget, at least for a little while, that I was practically as old as Dick Clark.

So, in typical L fashion, L knocked that sucker out of the park by doing this. (I told you she was swell).
But then, she told me not to tell, so of course the first thing I did was tell Karey M, then I may have mentioned it to Big Judes, and also, now that I think about it, it may have come up in conversation with Mr. Fussy Pants (My Boss), but I am pretty sure I only told him to prove that I really do have friends, and he probably told me to shut up anyway, so really I only told a couple people, which is really pretty good, all things considered.

That was a year ago, I just had another Birthday, now I am pretty sure I am older than Dick Clark. I am also pretty sure that I have one of the most amazing friends in the world, and I want to blab, so go here, and here, and here too.

Then go do something nice for someone.

Show Your Molars

I can't decide if I want to join her, or slap her, but I admire the effort.
Have a great weekend!
