St. Hallmark Day Annual Post 2017

Once again, St. Hallmark Day is almost upon us. This means it is time to assault your eyes with my traditional St. Hallmark post. The tradition began on Facebook – that keeper of all events and occasions – several years ago and continues to amuse me. So…

Y’all are my Valentine Victims! Mwa-hahahahaha!! Welcome to the Massacre!

~~~~~

The 2017 edition of my annual mock-a-thon must include a nod to my Valentine.

Sweet Valentine person of mine

You jostle my molecules

and

Cause a kerfuffle in my bustle

Yay!

#BeFake ~ Silly Sundays

So… Disclaimer. My profile picture isn’t real.

Okay, well… actually it IS real just not the real ME. It will be something very like the real me in fairly short order and is a direct result of my overflowing enthusiasm for my new / old ‘look’ to evolve or perhaps ‘resurrect’ is more accurate. Certainly, it hits the high points of colour, style, fashion aesthetic and all that good stuff. My own hair is transitioning from deep purple to its pale wisteria roots (no pun – okay – yes pun) and I can’t wait!

To justify reneging on my (self-imposed, I bet you didn’t know anyway) steadfast insistence about posting real photographs of my authentic mug, I am creating a #BeFake campaign because #beincognitotemporarily campaign took too long to type! Feel free to join in 🙂

I have no idea why I felt that an explanation was in order but with the amount of ‘judgey judgey’, snarkfest, in-your-face, opinionated foofaraw that happens on Social Media, I deemed it best to preempt it by proudly stepping up and proclaiming: My Gravatar is not real!

It is however, close enough for Rock ‘N Roll.

Well… with a stylist… maybe a professional makeup artist… do you know how frakkin’ hard it is to get these eyeliner wings right??!

A Christmas Story

… of a different stripe

White Tiger, Snow, Humour, Big Cats, A Christmas Story

“NOW it was serious. A double-dog-dare. What else was there but a ‘triple dare you’? And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.”

A quote from my second favourite Christmas movie – Nightmare Before Christmas – being the first. In the interest of full disclosure, I stuck my tongue to the bumper of my Dad’s car one year. 1972 Impala… delicious!
