The Death Meme

Dear Diary:

I liked being a corpse in the meme last spring but this Death Meme made me really think.  I was alive for this one.

  1. Do you ever think about dying? How do you expect you’ll die?  I don't really think about dying a lot.  I know it's going to happen eventually but I don't plan on it happening soon.  I expect to pass on as a very old, crochety lady.
  2. Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? No, I don't believe in afterlife.  I do believe that heaven - and hell - is right here with us.  Somedays it's the most beautiful, wonderful place to be and when I have to shovel three feet of snow at -40C at 6 in the know where I am. 
  3. What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? Apocalypse?  Wow!  I only hope that whatever hits me, it will be fast and permanent.
  4. How many times have you cheated death so far?  Only once that I know of.  At three, I had a serious illness that should have resulted in death.  But if I survived, I would be handicapped physically and mentally.  Although my friends think I do have a mental defiency, I came through it without any problem.
  5. Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by?   I would choose Professor Moriarity from Sherlock Holmes.  To me, he's like a spider in the middle of a web.  He's smart, clever and thinks everything out before he strikes.  And...oh...if I can't come back to make him miserable (as the next question relates), I know that Sherlock Holmes will catch him for me.  
  6. If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun?  I would not go peacefully.  I would have to hunt that sucker down.  
  7. Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die?  OMG...NO!!!!  There's something new that comes along every day.  I won't have accomplished even a bit of what I want to do.
Well, after thinking about death for the last two days, I'm going to add to my bucket list.

Good Night for now.

Ushering in the Fall Season

Dear Diary:

Tomorrow marks the first day of the autumn season and an occasion where night and day are almost equal in length.

Usually in my part of the world, the change in the weather, from warm to cool, is a good indicator that the fall season has begun.  It's a great time to have a bonfire on a chilly night.  Deciduous trees are starting to turn colour and the country looks like it's painted in shades of yellow, orange and red.  Fall is a time to be outside and enjoy the surroundings,

It is getting darker earlier and earlier so that's one thing I don't like about Fall.  However, the new harvest of apples provides delicious eating; pumpkins foretell the coming of Thanksgiving and Hallowe'en; and kids are back at school.  Oh yeah....let's not forget the "fall line-up" of new television shows! 

Yep.  Autumn is an amazing time of year.

Good Night for now.

Up In Space...Or Here On Earth?

Dear Diary:

I've always been interested in space.  No, I'm not one of those thrill seekers who want to jump on the nearest rocket but I believe we aren't the only "beings" around.  With the renewed interest in alien communication and the unsolved 6EQUJ5, I've become more intent on reading the space news.

Consequently when I found this quiz, "What kind of alien are you?" I decided to try it and see what I would be.  I turned out to be a Grey Alien.  The message given to me at the end was, "You're intelligent and endlessly curious, but also quite aloof and mysterious. You're shy and tend to avoid the spotlight"  Could that be how grey aliens are? 

A grey alien, named for its skin colour, is described as having a small stature, large eyes and big head. 

In 1947, a space craft attributed to grey aliens crashed in Roswell, New Mexico and witnesses supposedly saw bodies of the grey aliens that were then taken for autopsy.  That was never proven.  There have been many television programs and movies featuring fictional grey aliens but there have been testimonials from a few people who claim to have been abducted by the greys. 

Ufologist will continue to search for communication from space and when they do, I'll be listening.

Good Night for now.

The Hardest Job in the World

Dear Diary:

A friend of mine has a teenage daughter who has just returned to high school for a new semester.  She's been looking for a part time job to make some money to be able to afford all the "items" that a teenager absolutely has to have!  I asked her what kind of work was she looking for.  She told me that she was considering accepting a position with one of the local restaurants.  She thought the pay, plus HUGE tips, would allow her to buy all the things she wanted.  I yelled, "OMG!!!  That's the hardest job in the world."  I worked as a waitress one summer when I was in school.

As a waitress, I took the brunt of all the complaints - the steak wasn't cooked enough / the steak was cooked too much; the soup was too hot / the soup was cold; there wasn't enough salad dressing / there was too much salad dressing.  Whatever  the complaint, it was always the waitress' fault.  And of course, not everybody left a tip.

I have a great respect for women who work in this service field.  It truly is the hardest job in the world.

Good Night for now.

This Is Why It's Hard Coming Back From Vacation

Dear Diary:

I had a wonderful relaxing vacation just as I planned.  Drank too much and ate too much.  I stopped in at a wonderful restaurant serving Italian food so here's why it's difficult to get back to "normal".

At the landing point, there's a sign and a welcome note.
After you enter the restaurant and take your seat, you're presented with the menu and are asked to select one item from each category.  I love Italian food so I picked things I would normally order in an Italian restaurant.
You can reset the menu to change your selections.  When you place your order, you receive a place setting with the suggestion that you imagine eating this delicious meal then stand when you're finished.  You receive a message giving you the calorie count for the meal.
Upon arriving at the Fitness Club, I got the notice of how I could burn off the calories.

Even though there were some keen women in the gym, I decided to forgo the exercise until another time.  It was a fun experience and I definitely will go back and try again when the menu changes.
Good Night for now.
