The Friday Five
Many people make a big deal about not being "labeled." And yet, we all are, constantly.

1. Pick one label that you think does describe you (race, religion, hobby, etc.). Fat
2. Pick one label that is often put on you, that you really think is inaccurate. Stupid
3. Pick one label you wish could be put on you. Sexy
4. What is one kind of label that you think is universally wrong to use (race, gender, height)? race
5. Labels, used intelligently, can be a convenient rhetorical shorthand for identifying how a given person will fit into (or react to) a given situation. Labels, used incorrectly, can be an excuse for dismissing the differences still inherent in the people to whom the label is applied. Discuss.-
I for one hate labels. I grew up in the south when racism was really bad, and finally moved away from it. Now I'm back, and things have not changed that much. Also, since I gained weight, people are cruel about it. I'm labeled fat. SO WHAT! Fat does not make me stupid, or ugly, or shorter, or whatever... it just means I like to eat. Labels are not good- Period.
What’s your favorite song about growing up? Green Day - Time of Your Life
What’s your favorite song about cars or driving? Good Vibrations- Beach Boys
What’s your favorite song whose title is a person’s name? Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter - Herman's Hermits
What’s your favorite get-up-and-dance song? WOW! All songs are get up and dance songs.
What’s your favorite novelty song? anything by Weird Al Yankovich

Thursday Challenge "BODY" (of People or Animals: Eyes, Ears, Mouth, Nose, Face, Hands, Arms, Feet,...)

Thursday Memes

Thursday 13 (OK.. I'm in a dieting mood)

13 Things I love to do, but Can't do anymore because I'm too dang Fat.

1. Take a long bath...... I love to take a bath, not a shower, but it's too hard to get out of the tub.

2. Go to amusement parks...... I love to ride the rides, especially the roller coasters, but I don't fit and the parks are so big, I can't walk them without getting too tired.

3. Wear Jeans..... I LOVE bluejeans. To me they are a staple in a wardrobe. I cannot wear jeans that fit my waist that don't have legs big enough for small animal families to live in. Haven't worn jeans in 6 years. I miss them.

4. The same goes for bikini underwear... love them, but would like to be able to find them without digging them out of fat spots.... I know...TMI!

5. Go places. I have basically become a recluse in my home so I have few friends now. I go to the doctor, the grocery store and an occasional trip to WalMart. My whole life I have been a goer and a people person... now I'm not. People stare and make comments... I used to be those people. I guess that is a classic example of what goes around comes around. It sucks!

6. A good sex life... no details, just know that everything is more difficult and if you hate the way you look, you KNOW your guy must hate it too. So it becomes almost an unspoken thing. I would love to feel sexy again.

7. Dining out... What a paradox..... I love to go out to eat... but same as #5...everyone stares. So I don't go.

8. Traveling.... LOVE, love to travel. No longer fit even in the seatbelt extensions of the plane. So I don't travel/ but that will change.

9. Boating... We love to camp, go boating, fish, all that outdoorsy stuff I shouldn't admit I love, always portraying myself as a girlie girl..... Camping is a chore.... the boat might sink... and the fish would swim away, hehe...

10. SHOPPING.... God in heaven knows how much I love to shop. It is like a stress reliever... but looking like crap in fat women stores was never something I thought I would do, so my wardrobe is virtually nil.

11. Being healthy... I have always been very healthy... until now. I truly believe about 80% of my health problems will disappear when I lose weight.

12. Play with my granddaughters. I have three , ages 20 months, 7 and 11 and another coming in July. I don't want to just be remembered as the fat grandma who never did anything with them.

13. Most of all.... I miss being ME! I know I'm still here under all this fat and skin, I just have to find a way out!
Thursday Threesome
'Tis the season? ::'Tis the Season!::

Onesome: 'Tis-- Hmmm... More or less an older contraction? Do you have any semi-archaic words you use regularly?

Twosome: the-- heck you say? Okay, how about a 'regional' saying you're known to be fond of? You know, the one the relatives just don't get when you say it on the phone... Sure, slang will work !
Being from the south, I speak this language very well. 'gonna' is one I use a lot.

Threesome: Season--ings for the season? Mulled cider? Peppermint bark? Apple pie? What do you look forward to in the Winter months?
the coming of Spring!
3X Thursday

You have been granted 3 wishes! However, you have to use your wishes on 3 separate people. Who would you choose, what would you wish for them, and why?

1. My son David..... I would wish for him a woman who he can spend his life with who really loves him and will always be by his side.
2. My friend Jerry..... I would wish he could break his pattern of self destruction and love himself the way others do.
3. My last wish I would use on myself... for good health and a very long life.
