Ready For The Ride?

So we've visited the subjects of hairiness, eggshellness, and cheekiness. What wacky head trip journey shall I take you down now? Well, before I disappoint any followers of this blog that are looking forward only to hairy white tales, I better give you a little more insight on the probability of how my blog will go.
Bi-polar. That's right. Just when you think things couldn't get any lighter or funnier, they won't. Suddenly I'll switch gears and take you someplace deeper and more profound, or just strange and perhaps sad. As my French chili sister (Cassoulet Cafe) informed me, blogging is fun and creative entertainment, but can also be a cathartic therapy session. I plan on taking advantage of the free therapy. So, for those of you who would like to stick around on this roller coaster, thank you! And welcome to my Cheeky Greek head, it could be a long strange trip. But I will try and make it an entertaining one.

I have always loved to write, I don't claim to be any good at it, but I love it! I have shared things I've written only with like two people ever, so this is very new to me. I'm not very good with getting the right words to come out of my mouth, but give me a keyboard or pen and paper and the words flow freely. I guess all those years of cave dwelling with Twinkies and a large supply of Gillettes has somewhat inhibited my speech. If you don't know what I'm talking about then you haven't read my first two posts. I hate Twinkies by the way.

Most people do not know that I've been writing "in the closet" (or cave) since I was seven. I have a collection of poetry, short stories, and kids books I've written. I have started countless novels only to destroy them because they weren't up to my O.C.D. standards. Nor did I think anything would come of them. One of my favorite ways to write is to sit alone in a room with the music that moves me the most serenading my thoughts. I write everything that pops into my head at the exact moment it pops into my head. The result? A paper full of scrambled thoughts and lyrics, some inspiring and some not so understandable. I just think it's amazing to see the human mind on paper. I love reading things that require deeper thought and discernment to relate to it, or to even comprehend it. In the last six years due to marriage and having a high-need demanding toddler, the collection of new writings is very limited. These last few days are the most I've written in I don't know how long!

So, on that note: Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Give a man a fish with mercury, you just screwed that guy. Random? I know, that's me.

Fish anyone?


  1. Wow, I need that fish for my tank...

    I am so with you on that words-don't-come-out-of-mouth-gooder-than-on-paper phenomena. I am convinced two completely different parts of the brain control these two functions, and I only have one of them actually, functioning...

    Maybe that is why I am a sign language interpreter, and I love to write, and I hate math, and I can't eat gristle on meat, and when I see the color green I say "orange"...

    Can I have that fish? Can you do a giveaway for it?

  2. I can't eat meat gristle either..although I never thought about it being linked with my inability to speak sometimes..hmm. Well, as much as I'd love to give the fish away, I think it was eaten by a bunch of Egyptians a while ago.

  3. Now thats a big fish. :)
    I think you're doing pretty good at writing so far. How about sharing some of that poetry?

  4. Your posts have been wonderful! Very exciting to finally be sharing your writing "out of the cave" - I agree blogging can be a wonderful form of therapy. Keep blogging away!

  5. I've been "on the ride" since you were born. :)

  6. So fun! I'm visiting from your sister's site and I'm a big fan of the artwork on your site. You guys might want to see if he wants to show his work.

    Welcome to the blickosphere!

  7. I'd like a martini with my fish. If I'm gonna go down, I'd rather be drunk......

  8. Welcome to bloggyland. You will LOVE it.
