Hello dear world
How is everyone ?? I heard some news. I am sad to report that Anna Nicole Smith has passed away. I have to say that I think she was a good person deep down. She just got caught up in the fame that she tried so hard to be a part of. It has to be known that everyone has problems and yes even celebrities with fame and fortune have problems too. Just when you think you have it hard you see that someone else has it harder than you. She lost her young son recently and now she's gone. Many people have been critical of her today and she hasn't even been buried yet which I think is quite sad. The death of a man, a woman or a child is always a horrible thing to hear about. Anna was someone's daughter, someone's friend and someone's something. Anyone's death is a tragic thing. The loss of a life is never something to laugh at. She is gone and we should have respect for her family during this time.
On a more different note I was reading a journal that everyone should visit here is the link -------> http://journals.aol.ca/plittle/AuroraWalkingVacation/ .
In one of the entries there is a question:
Is Valentines Day a genuinely romantic day ? Or just a big commercial money pit into which romantic people fall ?
Before I was welcomed to J-Land I would have said right off the bat that Valentines Day is a big commercial money pit into which romantic people fall. I have since changed my mind. I am now enjoying Valentines Day. I have found many wonderful friends that have inspired me, taught me, opened me up in so many different ways and so many of you that have just been truly kind to me which I have been thankful for.
I have gotten to the point where I think that Valentines Day isn't just a genuinely romantic day but its also a special day for friends as well as for family. I have found friends in which I send cards to in which to show my appreciation for. I am including Valentines Day as part of that package.
I have also fallen head over heels in love with certain movies during this occasion such as:
You've Got Mail....for obvious reasons
84 Charing Cross Road
Under The Tuscan Sun
Bridget Jones' Diary
Footloose....with the world's greatest hunk Kevin Bacon
Hitch w/ Will Smith
etc, etc, etc
I also think that Valentines Day is a perfect time for going out and picking up a good book to read. I have started reading a lot more during this time. I picked up a few today that I haven't read including the following:
Blueberry Muffin Murder by Joanne Fluke
Irish Dreams by Nora Roberts
and for my undying love for chocolate a book titled : Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke
Anywho...I just thought I would share that with you. What do you think dear world ? I hope that you are doing well. I do have one tiny gripe though....Where is the sun ??? It is beyond cold in my neck of the woods and pretty soon I might just become "An Ice Lady". You might just pick up the newspaper tomorrow and find this headline:
An Ice Lady Was Found Recently Frozen Solid In Atlanta, Georgia
Sorry dear world am I weird or what ???
I will talk to you again soon. Take care my dear world.
