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 thinks pink

I love, love, love, my grandbabies. They are my heart, soul, and world. When my 5-year-old grandson was getting ready to start kindergarten this year, I was not just excited for him though, I was excited for me! Let me explain. When his mom, my daughter, was in elementary school, I did the PTA thing full-time, and when I say full-time, I mean I went to her school with her in the mornings and didn’t leave until long after she was dismissed in the afternoons – every single day! I even served on our local County Council’s Board of Directors and had EIGHTEEN schools under me in addition to everything I did for her school. But I loved every freaking minute of it. Every time I subbed a class, laminated, copied, answered phones, just whatever needed to be done, I loved volunteering for such a great cause – the benefit … Read more

Sarcasm does drops

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am LOVING the cooler temperatures now that October has arrived! As I said in an Dearlier post, you will be seeing a lot of pinks and purples this month from me due to Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness month being in October. But when two causes are so close to your personally, how do you choose? I know there are a lot of other people who have experienced something similar to me and want to recognize both, so I decided that a good alternative would be to use the color lilac. It is the perfect balance between both pink and purple, without being too much of each. This week’s featured piece is a bracelet design by Lisa Jordan for Starman Trendsetters called the Dagger Duo Bracelet. You can get these free patterns either from your local bead store, or … 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
