Girly Contest

I follow Girlgetstrong on Twitter. She has a very interesting approach on a very real and important project: allowing women to feel empowered, especially those that have been used and abused.

I entered a contest they are having to win an ipod touch. Here is my entry:

Sensei is sensibly sexy.

Now, I'm sure being sexy is sensible, especially if you are doing it for yourself and not for someone else. The mistake that many people make is doing something to look better for others when we really need to be doing it for ourselves. Our self image is the most important thing, which is why many people fail when trying because they are so hard on themselves. We usually are not nearly as stringent on others.

It's great to try things and use things to help us reach our goals, but we need to do one thing first. We need to make sure that our reasons for doing weight loss are sound and self-induced not society induced. Then, when you start if you feel yourself fail ask yourself: "Is this cupcake worth as much to me as being healthy and thinner?" If the answer is yes, then eat it. If the answer is no, put it down and celebrate the essence of you.

So, how will I promote this? You'll find this on my blog... :)

Bruce Willis in W Magazine Shows He's Still Hot

I was listening to a news show this morning on CNN where they were talking about Bruce Willis and his new wife in a strange photo shoot on W Magazine that comes out in July. According to the "experts" in the celebrity field they were ashamed for Mr. Willis in his new role. During the show I was thinking more along the lines of, "Wow. He's over fifty and still hot."

Personally, I applaud Bruce Willis and his wife for going out there and showing that they have charisma together. I think it's great that Bruce is able to show off how buff a man over 50 can be. I also think that it's no one's place to feel ashamed for anyone else. If you don't like it, don't look at it. Also, don't assume just because you find the shoot absurd or wrong that the rest of us automatically agree with you.

I'm glad to see Bruce out there doing something and being happy. If he wants to do a totally nude shoot, I'm sure it will sell magazines because there are a lot of us out there that appreciate the body and creativity of a modern male, or female, regardless of their age.

What Do You Hear?

Does the willow sleep or does it just weep
as the moon shines across the black night?

Do you see the tears or can you feel the fears
as it reaches for the stars in the sky?

Many hear the whispers, the secrets it tells
to weary drifters that trek across the land.

Do their tales they share fall upon caring ears
Or just float upon the wind?

It is said that if you listen closely the willow tree has tales to tell. It will help those searching for for answers as they travel upon life's road.

Using Police Cars for Taxi Cabs?

According to the Sheboygan Press, a 48 year old Plymouth, WI woman not only called them to ask for a ride to her ex-husband's house, but she also demonstrated to them why it was imperative for her to go there. According to this not so sober woman her ex's girlfriend was in need of a serious pounding. Since she had been drinking she wanted them to provide her with safe transportation so that she could give the other woman a beating. Police declined. Go figure. They did, however, provide her with some temporary accomondations. She also had spent some time in the early hours of the morning making 14 telephone calls to the household where her ex and his girlfriend reside. According to Sheboygan police this is considered harassment. She's just lucky she didn't get nailed for calling 911 for taxi cab emergency service.

Granted the weather here hasn't been as warm as we like, but liquor to warm up your bones evidently turns your brain into mush. My advice to Doreen L. DeTroye, aka Stupid Drunk Woman, is to find another way to get over her ex. Liquor makes you stupid.
