Narcissism

Daily Post Topic Suggestion @WordPress ::

Would you rather be super intelligent or extremely good looking?
Bonus: What if you could be both, but not at the same time?

- – - – -

I’m not really a fan of most topic suggestions I find hidden in the depths of the web.  This makes it difficult for me, as a writer with probably the worst case of writers block … ever.  So bad in fact, that I’ve nearly decided that I’m not a writer at all, leaving me confused and wondering what exactly my hobbies would include, then.

I continue on, writing things anyway … or at least trying to.  The problem though, is that without an interesting topic I can’t stay focused and chuck out projects very quickly.  Some people are very quick at coming up with subjects, and others are good at writing about whatever subject is thrown at them.  Unfortunately, I am neither of those people.  Over-analyzing the things other people come up with as ideas makes them seem weak and flawed.  I am in need of a strong topic.

The thing is, this topic suggested by WordPress doesn’t work for people who are both super intelligent and extremely good looking.  Now I’m not one to brag about myself, and I’m neither the most intelligent or the most good looking person in the world, I’ll admit that right off.  I am, however, of well-above average intelligence, and naturally I look better than most people do fake – thus, no need for makeup because I’m better than that and don’t need to play dress up in the morning like most women do.

So I guess when I think about it, even though I have my own issues that probably need working out, I am extremely lucky to be who I am.  That explains the haters.  <3

Thanks for the enlightenment, WordPress.

Spirit Guide

To meet your “Animal Spirit Guide” you have to go find yourself some traditional Natives; and then have them lock you in a steamed up tee-pee for several hours, while under the influence of questionable intoxicants that make you puke your guts out, until an animal pops into your mind – or so I thought…

And they say you can’t tell others what your animal guide is, because the spirit of that animal will be offended.  But I, like my spirit guide, question without fear and therefore don’t care what they say anyway because that’s just not logical, and I don’t think my animal would care either.

The Raccoon

Raccoon’s Wisdom Includes understanding the nature of masks, disguise, dexterity, seeking guidance and confidence, questioning without fear, balancing curiosity, shape shifting, secrecy.

In some ways, the racoon is a clever scavenger. Their magic is their mask, though often the raccoon’s mask is linked with its ‘banditry’ – they have been known to open peoples house doors and bin lids to take food – the mask has a far deeper meaning. No one, including you and I, are ever quite what we may seem – even to ourselves, for in our lives we can experience the freedom of many identities. Be it with friends, partners, children, parents, work colleagues, strangers etc. This medicine helps us to take on and let go of the many roles we fill. Having various identities isn’t negative, for we can learn to become adept at changing identities when appropriate. Over time this becomes as easy as selecting and changing ones clothes. Your many faces are about to be revealed to you. The racoon will assist you how to mask, disguise and transform yourself. Masks are a powerful tool – through the use of masks, altered states can be reached. Racoon people generally do well in professions to do with theatre.

Raccoons seem indifferent when caught ‘stealing’, although if provoked they can become ferocious. They are strong and muscular and can hold their own in nearly all situations, teaching us to do the same.

If Raccoon is your power animal, eating mainly fruit and vegetables will be beneficial to your health. Raccoon will have a long influence on your life, staying with you for a long time.

Racoons are for the main nocturnal animals, travelling in small groups of 1 or 2 families searching for fruits, vegetables, and small animals. Often they can be seen sloshing their hands and food in water before eating. The symbol of hands represent holding, receiving or giving. If raccoon comes to you may be being asked to let go of a situation, person, belief or habit. Reversely, the message may be for you to receive the gifts being offered to you by the Universe.

They are excellent swimmers, though they prefer being up a tree – which is where they are often found. Up here they are aware of everything around them and see danger a long way off. Racoons are highly curious leaving no stone unturned. This has its up and down sides. Following ones curiosity can pave the way for new and exciting things. However curiosity without caution can pave the way to trouble. [1]

I could not have written a better description of myself.  I always find myself wondering what to write in “About Me” sections – that’s it…

No trying to locate and befriend Indians, no mysterious poison cocktails – just one lovely, enlightening evening.

Gram’s First Accident

Poor Gram had a terrible day after Christmas…

Today we went to Cascade again, and Gram was very excited to see his dog friends.

The ground is icy and the pup got running a little too fast, and then turned to look behind him and … BAM!  He hit the Jeep with a trailer hitch to the face.  An instant yelp and he ran over to me like a baby…

A little Neosporin later and…


Busted his lip in two places, and scraped a bunch of fur under his eye.  Poor guy :(

I think he feels a little better now, but it will probably be really sore tomorrow!  Maybe next time he will watch where he’s going.
