Tuesday Talk...


Today, I'm gonna talk about social media.  While it can be great to connect with people, it can be totally evil at the same time.  Back in my day (yes, I'm aging myself), you actually had to talk to someone face-to-face, over the phone or by letter.  There was none of this instant crap - "oh, I'm pissed off & I'm gonna post a status about a certain person for the WHOLE world to see".  In my day, you actually had to use your brain a little bit & think before acting.  Everything is so instant now & that tends to get people in trouble & feelings hurt.

I've been trying to drill into Trouble & Sunshine's heads that they need to think before acting.  Mature people use their mouths to talk not their fingers.  It just irritates me to see not just teenagers but adults blasting other adults & sometimes kids via Facebook or whatever.  It's quite sad.  I've been seeing it for years & I sometimes think about closing my Facebook down because of it but I do like the upside of staying connected with some folks.  Ugh.

Because I'm practicing what I preach, I've been really strong for the past twelve hours after someone blasted my cousin, Alysha, on Facebook.  This girl is one of the most beautiful people I know, inside & out & the fact that she's being "attacked" really upsets me.  But I figure the best I can do is be the bigger person & just think about all the things I want to say, leave them in my brain & just be positive for her.

Sometimes...being the bigger person is really tiring...

  1. Hello from Tuesday Talk. I couldn't agree more with your thoughts about facebook in general, but really any social media platform. It can be good, but it can also be used for bad. People need to be just as respectful towards others on these as they would in person. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us today. Being the bigger person does get tiring, I agree.

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
