Sarcasm Has It’s Own Month!

During October we celebrate (or at least I do!) a relatively unknown observance in the United States, National Sarcastic Awareness Month. Although some people like to refer to sarcasm as the “lowest form of humor” according to the Sarcasm Society, it actually requires a quick wit and the ability to extract the finest points of weakness in a conversation. I personally celebrate it as a month-long “I can get away with anything in a conversation-fest.” In case you haven’t already noticed, Sarcasm has gone Purple. October is also National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of [some form of] physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. As a survivor … Read more

Sarcasm Presents Bead Embroidery as Therapy

One of the things that I have learned throughout my life is that stress brings out the worst (and usually the nastiest) snarky sarcasm to come out of my mouth. This year however, has been a humbling experience for me in my personal life, as I have struggled with a new health issue that I would not wish on my worst enemies (well, maybe my ex-husband, but that’s another story!), and not only has it taught me to value each day – each minute of each day as a gift, it has taught me extraordinary fortitude through some very unstable emotional moments. When my granddaughter was born in August, 2014, I spent every day at my daughter’s house to help her out with the new baby a.) so she could get some rest and get her regular household chores done; and b.) so I could spend as much time as … Read more

Sarcasm does Bridal?

As much as I love what I do, sometimes there comes a piece that just makes you want to jump off the next bridge available. The piece I have been working on ALL frigging week is one of those pieces. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE what I do, it’s just there are, as with any occupation, some aspects you just kind of dread, and flat peyote by a pattern is mine. While I had a GREAT pattern from Fun Pattern Designs – peyote designs by Debger Designs on Etsy, I just absolutely dread the repetitiveness of flat peyote patterns. I would much rather be playing with my two hole beads and making up new creations with them! Speaking of two hole beads, did you know you can get superduos on Amazon by the 100 gram bags? Oh YEAH! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Gotta a few hundred this week through Rockin … Read more

Sarcasm relies on faith

Sarcasm gets older

So I come to you this week a year older and not a bit wiser. Yes, I am just as snarky at 46 (if not more) than I was at 45 and will probably progress even to belligerence. It was a typical birthday for me, migraine, Murphy’s Law, and all. But, I did have my usual Friday morning breakfast at school with my grandson (except my breakfast was a free coffee and a donut from Krispy Kreme cuz it was my born day), and dinner with ALL my babies at Red Robin. Dinner was another freebie too. So here is what I did. Go to Krispy Kreme and Red Robin‘s websites and sign up for their online loyalty/rewards programs and you get a free coffee and a donut at Krispy Kreme and free burger of choice at Red Robin on your birthday. My daughter LOVED it, cuz she didn’t have … Read more
