The Urgency in the word… Jump!

 

Jump

 

Jump is one of those urgent words.  

A few phrases come into mind:

Jump for joy!…Jump around!..Jump into your life!

Emphatically… jump means to do it right now.

From the obvious action of jumping, like off a cliff or jumping on a trampoline, it’s one of those command words that urges one to do the action immediately.

A person who is told to Jump! doesn’t have time to sit and reflect.

They just have to do it!

 

 

 

 

 

The Stylish 1980s

Stylish

I cringe looking at 80s fashions.

Can anyone be considered stylish if they grew up in the 1980s?

Fashion certainly took a break and all rules were broken.

I blame it on MTV music videos.

Madonna and Michael Jackson started some trends.

George Michael,  too.  Fashion was everywhere in music videos.  How else would people know to match up a neon shirt with rolled up jeans? Or wear suspenders with Doc Martens? Lots of fashion choices were abundant in the 1980s.  

Suspenders, capezio shoes, broaches, long denim skirts, mini skirts, oversized shoulder pad shirts, cut up t-shirts, denim jackets, the list can go on and on.

Even though fashion was out there and not as stylish as the 1940s fashion, hairstyles were inventive.

Today, not many people can pull of wearing a permed and over hair sprayed hairstyle.

Eco- conscious, plant based people would freak out with all the chemicals in hairspray!  

But, one thing that was stylish in the 1980s was an asymmetrical haircut.  Of course it  was a normal to wear hair in geometric styles.  It was the 80s.

Also popular was the dreaded mullet.

But….a mullet will NEVER be stylish.

 

The Silence of a Snowfall

Silence

The best time to hear complete silence is after a big snowfall.

This is when silence is at it’s peak.

The air is cool, the snowflakes are quietly falling into their piles. No one is outside.

Animals are tucked into their earth homes or hanging out in some protective evergreen trees.

Occasionally, one might hear some car tires crunching over the freshly plowed snow. 

But most of the time it is quiet and peaceful.

Soon, the snowfall ends and the silence becomes normal again with snow plows, shovels scratching against concrete, and children playing loudly with their snow games.

 

 

 

Kristen Bell hiked up her Dress at the Emmy’s

Hike

The Emmy’s were on last night and there were a few women who wore dresses that were too oversized for their petite bodies.

One in particular was Kristen Bell.

Kristen wore an over abundant, whimsical dress.

Don’t get me wrong.  It was beautiful.  But when she approached the E! fashion press at the beginning of the show she had to walk up some small steps.

Immediately, Kristen disappeared into her voluminous dress when she hiked up her dress to her armpits.  She was enveloped in a chiffon tornado.

She waddled up the stairs, with her dress in both hands.  E! staff tried to help her up the stairs,  too.

Kristen look like she could fall over at any moment. 

Once she made it up to the top of the stairs she expressed concern about showing the world her undergarments.  Don’t worry Kristen…you didn’t!

But, her dress failed at that moment and I am sure Kristen was regretting picking out such a huge dress.

Walking Together

Together

Together… we went to a taco place and ate some tacos.

Afterwards, we walked further down main street and visited a bakery.

The bakery had cupcakes, fruit pies, cookies, cream puffs, and eclairs. We were certainly full from the tacos but managed to keep a little part of our appetite wanting something sweet.

We both decided to buy different things. I had the fruit tart and my friend had a cream puff. But, we both knew that we’d be sharing each one. So it didn’t matter. 

This walk down main street was a perfect way to spend the day together.

 

The Fragile Ego of a Narcissist

Fragile

Narcissists have fragile egos that destroy others.

Take for example Elon Musk.

His first ex-wife Justine wrote about her fairytale love affair with Elon back in 2010.    http://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/advice/a5380/millionaire-starter-wife/

Their story was a typical fairytale. She fell for his ability to pay for lots of books, then married him, and soon had lots of children.

But they also had a tragedy.  Their son passed away from SIDS at 10 weeks old.

It was during this time that Justine said Elon became cold and unloving.

Maybe Justine thought it was his fragile ego dealing with the death of their son? But,  in reality it was his narcissism.

Narcissist’s don’t have empathy.  They surround themselves with trophy wives and think they are more special than anyone else in the world.  The rules only apply to them.

Narcissist’s spend a large amount of attention in the beginning of a relationship but soon show their true narcissist qualities and disappear. When things got mundane or as Justine said when “she wasn’t blonde enough for him” ..the narcissist finds another partner.

They aren’t fragile at all.

Sadly, Justine never had a chance.  

Because surviving a narcissistic relationship is impossible.  Especially with Elon Musk.

The fairytale eventually ended.

 

 

 

 

 

Traveling is a Slog

Slog

Traveling these days is a slog.

It’s hard work because you can spend hours at the airport or sitting on a runway.

And the worst part of traveling is the amount of work it requires just to get to the destination.

It’s not fun unless you have a private plane.

Then life is amazing!

There are so many famous people on Snapchat traveling by private plane these days.

It’s funny to see half famous TV actors and actresses who are not as wealthy as they think they are secure a lower class private plane.

Yes.  There are lower class private planes.  The planes these actors rent are kind of like a discount airline.  They are small, sardine like, with low lustre leather and not as luxurious as some others planes in the jet-setting universe.

As far as private planes go they are probably from the 1980s.

However, the more money you have… the better the private jet.

Let’s look at Kevin Hart.  He is one of those wealthy, comedic actors who slogs away at his craft, but I only see him on Snapchat working out and going to Vegas on his spectacular private jet.

The jet he rents is top notch.  Or,  maybe it’s his own?  Not sure.  But the plane has beautiful seats, lounging bedseats, wood accents and lots of plated fruit.  His plane is pretty awesome!

So, if I have to slog away traveling these days I want to hop on Kevin Hart’s private jet.

 

Perplexed about some towels

via Daily Prompt: Perplexed

Perplexed
I am perplexed as to why Chrissy Teigen  hangs out in a towel while she’s at home.

I am not sure why she chooses to dress this way.

It’s quite uncomfortable to walk around in just a towel.  For one, a towel always needs readjusting and a strong tuck in to stay on the body.  Second, a towel is usually heavy.

I am sure Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s towels are those Egyptian cotton towels that are sturdy and plush.  Also, Chrissy probably only bought bath sheets.  Those are the longer towels that are more expensive than a regular bath towel.

Yes.  This is why I am perplexed today.
