Blogtober Day 11: If I were president...



The first thing that pops in my mind when thinking of this question, is the scene in Legally Blonde when Elle Woods' friend Margo shouts out "Vote for Elle!" and claps ecstatically.

If I were president, life would be a bowl of cherries. No really, I would ensure that cherries were at peak all year long, forget a designated season. Everyone would get them delivered to their door step fresh, which in turn would cause for more employment opportunities. See? Clear economic direction already.

If I were president, cupcakes would be free in each city twice a week, there would be no stray or abandoned dogs, and bullies would be sent to an island a la Naked and Afraid. They would have a chance at redemption, because we all make mistakes, but would first have plenty of time on that island to reflect on their actions.

If I were president I would get to the bottom of the cure for Cancer and Aids; teachers would be the highest paid people in our country; and children, or anyone for that matter, would not be going to bed hungry.

If I were president, I would use more kindness than any other tool. I would weigh out every heavy decision with the best chamomile tea I could find and I would write back to anyone who ever wrote to me.

Sure my presidential dreams may be a little Pollyanna, but I can definitely think of worse styles to emulate. It may all seem simple minded or light, but really, that's just my groove. After all, you'll always attract more bees with honey than vinegar.

Until we meet again,

  1. If cherries were available all year round I'd be the happiest person alive.

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
