Is this what goes on in your head?

The beautifully scripted writing in this pic overshadows the very real pressure that we sometimes come upon...especially in the moments of solitude when we entertain our innermost thoughts.

Are there times when you just "can not take any more of this"...? or when your are "thankful for nothing"...?

Which of your innermost thoughts beautifully spelled out in this interestingly graphic piece?

The proceeds of which will be donated to Children International to help Mexico fight the swine flu epidemic.

This is enough reason for me to go shopping...

I ain't mad at anything that gives me even the slightest reason to spend well-earned money...frivolously!

Friday Fill-In

And...here we go!

1. If we had no winter, when would the earth sleep?

2. Consider this situation one that is a perpetual astonishment.

3. If I had my life to live over there would be some changes, but mostly done the same...with just a lot more insight.

4. I do a lot of living inside of four and twenty hours.

5. If you've never been thrilled brace yourself for the ride.

6. To be interested in the changing seasons takes a conscious awareness.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to wandering aimlessly through the mall, tomorrow my plans include absolutely nothing and Sunday, I want to long for another episode of The Celebrity Apprentice!

Like Friday Fill-in? Me too! Play along with me. As usual, my answers are in red.

Who let the Bully out?!

In an article written by Mickey Meece in the New York Times, it is stated that women in the workplace are responsible for 40% of workplace bullying & violence..."The women appear to prefer their own kind, choosing other women as targets more than 70 percent of the time." The backlash seems to be increasing in the face of the downturned economy. The abuse can be as subtle as sabotage of work projects or as brazen as a full blown 'dressing down' in front of colleagues. Here's more on these bullies that make coming to work like walking into the proverbial Hell.
Wouldn't you think that we had enough demons to fight. Nothing more nastier than in-fighting! The bullies need to be mandated to Yoga and meditation classes.

Does This Mean that Girls are Evil?...

...Are Women Bullies {in the workplace} ...

Grown Up {LUV}...

Friday Fill-in


And...here we go!

1. Apples are to oranges as fire is to water.

2. Most things can be worked out, if we take the time to listen to what the other has to say, and that's all I have to say about that.

3. I think I hear a warm glazed donut calling me.

4. Honour the flag.

5. Do what you want to do, but be accountable .

6. In front of him was a parade of 'big wheel' trikes and behind him was a Radio Flyer wagon; in the wagon was a bucket filled with multi-coloured glass marbles of all different sizes.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing with a good magazine, tomorrow my plans include starting a short vacation and Sunday, I want to yell from the mountain top that I have the greatest Mother in the world! Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

That's all folks. As usual, my answers are in red, and you can stroll over to play along.
