Once Upon A Desire: Of Dreams and Action

Of Dreams and Action

Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.
Anais Nin

I am beginning to question the wisdom of having a snarling Tasmanian Devil as my desktop picture. A real Tasmanian Devil, not the cartoon.

Damn you, Pepperidge Farm! Damn you and your delicious cookies and crackers!

I got a word verifier that said "farthing spokesmen." Get into the Beavis and Butthead mindset & guess what I thought it said! Huh huh huh!

Hoping that we can qualify to refinance. After having to max out credit cards to pay medical bills, I'm not too sure if we'll qualify. :-/

Risks for Stomach Cancer

The singer Ronnie James Dio recently passed away from stomach cancer. His wife said that he rarely ate vegetables and his favorite foods were meats, pasta, and bread. He also enjoyed his wine. His wife encouraged people to be assessed for their risk of stomach cancer and to increase the amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables in their diets as that is one of the easiest things a person can do to prevent this disease.
Ronnie was Italian and I wonder if people of Mediterranian heritage are more prone to diseases such as stomach cancer, and if so, is it because of a genetic predisposition or because of diet.

Once Upon A Desire: My Two Cents Worth on Kristin Stewart

My Two Cents Worth on Kristin Stewart

As a person, Kristin Stewart seems like an intelligent,  sensible, down-to-earth young lady. I have read interviews with her and think that she has a much better grasp on things than many of today's young celebrities. She dresses modestly, doesn't see the need to party all the time, hasn't been in and out of rehab, and doesn't flash her privates while exiting limousines. I very much like and appreciate Kristin Stewart the person. The world would be a better place if more young people looked up to her than to the likes of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
Kristin Stewart as an actress is, I'm sorry to say, terrible. Her style is completely wooden. It isn't only her performance in Twilight that I have an issue with. I'm watching her in a 2004 made for TV movie called Speak, and I have to say, if she were a teacher, her voice would put me right to sleep. Her delivery is utter monotone. 
It may in part be the roles that she's been given of the depressed teenager who perceives herself as awkward. I have not seen her performance in The Runaways yet, but given her track record, I have to say I'm a bit reluctant to give it a look.

Ironic that my last status update on 9/5 was about my back hurting. Then I went out. It was raining, I slipped on steps & hurt back bad.

Johnny Depp is a favorite actor, Angelina Jolie is a favorite actress. Think The Tourist will be good.

Going to the doc this afternoon to see if I can go back to work, then to school to see if I can get back into nursing program. X fingers!

Guess it's been a while since I was social or since I networked. Thank you new people who have friended me. :-)
