Six Word Sat ~ Patrick the Starfish' wisdom

My suitcase is full of rocks...

...and some people around me is speculating why. They never asked me, so I never explained either. The answer is so simple. I like it. I can carry it. And I have a reason for having it.When Squidward of Spongebob Squarepants asked Patrick the Starfish why his suitcase is full of rocks, Patrick retorted that he doesn't tell how Squidward should live his life! And he is so right!

Happy weekend everyone!

    Monday Sound -- Having you Near Me (Air Supply)

    I googled why a  "song/music/melody  is stuck to one's head" and several articles says that it is a  phenomenon called "earworm". It happens to me all the time. Research say that all of us are afflicted by this at one time or another.

    So what's your earworm today?

    Am I Caring and Cautious?

    You Are Caring and Cautious

    You are a responsible, likable person. You can be counted on to be consistent.

    You believe it's important to do the right thing in life. You are a loyal friend and family member.

    It's fairly easy for you to develop strong social and emotional bonds with others. You can be counted on.

    You are deeply ethical and the furthest thing from superficial. It bothers you when people are too flakey.


    Friday 55 -- Little Jane

    Why is Daddy screaming and mommy crying on the sink? What is it? What were they saying? The words are too garbled to hear.

    Oh, I think Mommy saw me peeping by the bedroom door! Shhh…

    I’m going to sleep so please, don’t make them look my way! They might see me and hurt me…

    If you have something to tell in 55 words, or just want to check if others can do it, too -- go and tell the G-man that I sent you!

    The 100-Word Challenge -- Unspoken

    Silent Goodbye
    Shel saw him sitting against their tree, looking toward the setting sun on the Masaraga Mountains.

    “Hey!”, she called . Jay smiled and waved as he saw her walking towards him.

    “Why so serious?”, as she grabbed and puffed on his cigarette.

    “I think I need to go away again.”

    Her hands shook a bit and felt her eyes wavering for a moment “How soon?”

    “In a day or two,” He murmured.

    She leaned on his shoulder as she felt his hands holding hers, both silent.

    Finally he pulled her up and said, “We have till tomorrow, don’t we?” 


    I am Ethical and Generous

    You Are Ethical and Generous

    You are driven to be the best. You have sky high ambitions and standards.

    People may think that you are hard on them, but you are the hardest on yourself.

    You may be hard working, but you're not selfish. You work hard because you want the world to be a better place.

    You give until it hurts and then still keep giving. Very few people appreciate all that you do.

    I am a Mystic

    It's fun taking tests like these. It makes one think, is it true?


    I'm not really an island. I need a warm body beside me sometimes most of the time. It's good to know you have someone, don't you think?  But I don't depend my happiness on them. But .though I enjoy silence,especially in the mornings as much as  I love going out with friends, going to the beach, joyrides and such...

    You Are a Mystic

    You are an island. You don't need anyone else to make you happy.

    And though you see yourself as a loner, people are drawn to you.

    Deep and sensitive, you tend to impress others with your insights.

    You also tend to be psychic - so listen to that inner voice!
    Your strength: Your self sufficiency
    Your weakness: You despise authority
    Your power color: Maroon
    Your power symbol: Hammer
    Your power month: July


    I am a Hedonist

    Very well said!

    You Are Hedonism

    You believe in enjoying all of world's small and large pleasures. Life's too short to feel guilty.

    If it feels good, you do it. And you try to avoid pain at all costs, because pain is a major bummer.

    And while you enjoy the baser pleasures, like food and drinking - there's more to you than that.

    You find joy and delight wherever possible. You truly live well, and you're proud of that fact.


    Am I your Rebound Girl?

    I sure hope not.Though sometimes it crosses my mind that I might be... 

    See? Even now, my initial reaction is turn myself blind over the fact that you might be in rebound. But I know myself, I'm a very logical person.  I want to see things objectively, with reason, as I do not want to fall "madly", "blindly" in love with you or with anybody else. So I want to clinically pick the details of our circumstance.

    So, are you?

    I've been through this before, as the rebounder.I even posted about it in  The Art of Breaking Up .Rebounding is the worst one can do after a really bad break up, and I promised myself that I will not take that road again. Both can be lulled by the thrill, or rush of intense emotions, mistaking it for love or happily ever after. But it's not, really.

    Let's take it slow, okay? I know you're still feeling a bit confused, and I promise I will be with you. But here are my grounds:
    1. Do not take me granted. I will not allow it. Do not expect that I will take up where your ex left off.
    2. Do not compare me. Whether good or bad, do not look for them in me. I'm a different person.
    3. I'm always up for a good talk. Tell me what's on your mind. Compatibility is boring, a bit of disparity is always good.
    4. Do not rush. Let's take our time knowing each other.

      Don't be afraid. Sometimes something  good can come out of the bad. We have something good here, we just need straighten  out some emotional entanglements, clean the road we will walk on, so to speak...

      Anyway, I just hope that you, my dear readers, will have a great day!

      You Have an Intense Heart

      Your heart craves passion. You feel deeply and love an emotional rush.

      Your heart has been hurt more times than you can count, and you've broken many hearts in return.

      Monday Sound -- Jesus Doesn't Want me for a SUNBEAM

      By the Vaselines

      Jesus, don't want me for a sunbeam
      Sunbeams are never made like me

      Don't expect me to cry
      For the all the reasons you have to die
      Don't ever ask your love of me

      Don't expect me to lie
      Don't expect me to cry
      Don't expect me to die for thee.

       Kurt Cobain of Nirvana (R.I.P.) made a cover of this song during their MTV Unplugged in 1993. Though I like Nirvana's cover better because I felt that their acoustic concert was sort of a goodbye, for 5 months later Kurt ended his life, I wanted to share their favorite, The Vaselines.

      Qoute of the Day

      "To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult."


      You Are a Tiger

      You are an even tempered, controlled person. You assess situations carefully.

      You are aggressive, but you are never out of control. You pick and choose your battles.

      You are rational and calm. Even if something should effect you, you don't let it.

      You are cool and calculating. People can rely on you, as long as they don't cross you!

      I think about plots for erotica novels while sitting in the pews at church.
      Whenever I use the bathroom, I always picture famous people & people I know taking a crap.
      I had a sex dream about diamonds in my vagina.
      It doesn't matter your age, sex, religion, or race, I will stare at your ass.
      I kissed a boy today, who didn't wish I was someone else.
      I get pissed at people who leave times on the microwave.
      I don't hate you because you cheated, I hate you because you told her my secret.
      I just went on vacation. and I only wanted to send a postcard to Postsecret.
      I would take swinging on the swings over money, sex, and/or power, any day.
      I wish my parents would find my drafts of my suicide notes under the carpet by my air vent.
      When I say I don't care, I'm not trying to convince you, I'm trying to convince myself.
      I leave poetry in library books.
      I shredded all my photos.
      Sometimes, I eat my boogers.
      I am contemptuous of others so it hurts when they are indifferent to me.
      My secret is... I want to be a outlaw biker.
      The meds don't work. But I say they do, and no one knows.
      I love you so much but can't tell you.
      People think I've stopped lying, but I've just gotten better at it.
      I like the smell of my own farts.
      I want to die a hero.
      I am lost.
      I am terrified I will never get married.
      Even if I have plenty of friends, I always feel alone.
      I'm afraid to take the next step.
      I go to the movies to try and imagine what life would be like if only I could fit in.
      I'm very glad I didn't win.
      I miss feeling close to God.
      She never gave me a chance.
      I change my hair so often to make up for the fact that I won't be able to change who I am.
      I'm happy and lucky but I've never told anyone.
      I tell people I'm an atheist but I believe I'm going to hell.
      I've always wanted to rob a bank.
      I really enjoy funerals.
      I'm always annoyed when anyone makes me alter my path on the sidewalk.
      I truly believe all my problems would be solved if only I were not fat.
      Jail isn't anything like the movies.
      I hate when my mom uses her illness as an excuse. I hate it when I do it too.
      Strangers are just friends waiting to happen. Will you be mine?
      I miss cutting.
      (Picture of The Beatles) These four men are my best friends, I wish they were all still alive, so we could live in a yellow submarine.
      All the popular kids are boring.
      I care more about Dumbledore than I do about the Pope.
      I wear granny panties. [occasionally]
      Men that take good care of their kids turn me on.
      My dogs are weird.
      I HATE 90% of my generation's of music.
      I want to be skinny... but I am far too lazy.

      The Never Should Meme

      1. If I never see Teddy again it will be too soon.

      2. Should I meet my Maker tomorrow, I would ask for one more day on earth to show Teddy how how much he means to me.

      3. Never in my life have I embraced someone like I did today.

      4. I should always allow more time to do laundry (I hate it, don't you?).

      5. I should've never listened to other people while under the influence of alcohol.

      6. I never puke in my car but I should always carry ziplock bags  ::lol:: with me just in case.

      7. I should spend more money on vacation because it makes me happy. I should spend less money on cellphone upgrade because it makes me sad.

      8. Secrets should never be shared with strangers.

      9. I should tell "You" that I never really meant to make your life as miserable as you claim I did,  because it's you who chose it to be by nursing your anger and not letting go.

      10. Never in a million years would I want you to know why some people are left- or right-handed, they just are!
