This Brotherhood of Mine

Me and the boys. Yep. For many fun times it was and I always seemed more comfortable around guys. Dating? Well, that was kinda another post but this one is more about other memories. Sure, sometimes guys bring the egos but girls bring the drama and I never could get into that. Even now with both sides of the family I prefer the company of menfolk. Is that sad? Maybe, but not for me. I have often said how my brother and I were always closer than either sister as we are almost twins and share similar traits. There were other reasons though as we thrived on the silly and not seriousness of some girls.๏ฟผ

Yes, wrestling was funny (for the most part…) when we watched together but there were many more times. I had several cousins close in age and even a few my same age but on some occasions, girls other than me got sorta mean and gossipy. I’d hang with my brother and boy cousin a few years younger. Oh what great stories we have! I laugh since on “The Ultimate Collection” DVD, there is a match from December 17, ( my husband’s bday) 1988 between the Ultimate Warrior and the Honky Tonk Man. The camera pans the crowd and there is this boy with arms raised that could be my cousin’s doppelgรคnger! He looks exactly like him at that age. How was he there and not me, lol?! My brother totally agreed on the resemblance.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ’ฏ

I also used to help some boys cheat on tests in school. One was even the boy who had the Road Warriors on a notebook. You’ll find that story from years ago in my book- Spirit and Belief. We were friends and never got caught. See, I wasn’t the “good girl” all the time! I still am not about some things… ๐ŸคซEven former boyfriends of my sisters I seemed to get along better with than some of the girls. Guess it all started with my girl issues that carried over when it came to trust but we do evolve over time. Some women never outgrow their snobbiness or martyr attitude but that’s been talked about too.

Don’t get me wrong here. I do have some close women in my life but honestly, no “bestie.” I’m not that close with immediate women in my family with very different personalities. I’m the black sheep for sure but am OK with that now. My spiritual cousin and I are very close as she is like the older sister I never had. Maybe I just never felt judged by boys and could be myself. We always have both energies ya know. I’ve never been a “girly” girl but let me tell you, I embrace my femininity big-time more than ever just not in a flashy way. Back in the day, girls would not watch sports or even talk about them. I did have friends in school who played their own sports but professionally on TV was never a topic with them at all. I loved our Cleveland sports teams of football and basketball in the mid 80’s but never had one conversation with another girl ever that I can recall. I have stated this about wrestling as well. My mom actually would watch with my brother and I all about how our Cleveland teams were doing. Dad started WWF but never got into actually sitting and watching the others with us. Never my sisters either. I enjoyed it all. ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿคผโ€โ™€๏ธ You’d catch me more at a monster truck rally over a fashion show any day. I like the action and it showed over the years. We took our kids to a monster truck rally a few years back as it was all my idea. Two trucks were actually named “Tombstone” and “Gravedigger.” Guess who I think of on that, ha ha!๏ฟผ

I even enjoy all the superhero movies. Yes, some do involve women as well and I am a sucker for rom-coms but between the movie “Frozen” and let’s say- “The Avengers,” yeah I think you know the answer for me. I know “Frozen” is animated but I always thought if they made a movie like that about sisters, why can’t there be one about brothers? Maybe there is, I don’t really know. ๐Ÿค”When I want to be that GIRL, I sure am in other ways. I can get glammed up and feel pretty but don’t need to live and breathe it always. I’m not out to bash men and never will entirely. Despite women fighting for equality, some are just as nasty as men can be. I believe there are more fake women out there because men are more direct. Sometimes it doesn’t always work in your favor but it all depends on your experiences. Many women I truly admire really and I was shown to tap in to that feminine side more which I have done. Not all women are “cliquey” just like not all men are controlling. We always need that balance of strength and emotion whether we are that guy or gal.

I just seemed to hit it off more with a brotherhood of sorts which explains A LOT now. I remember being picky with some guys but I was afraid of not liking them if they liked me or getting hurt even. With girls it would seem one day they’d be your friend and the next, you didn’t exist. I may never have that elusive female BFF but it’s OK now as I don’t fight it anymore. I am me so that’s that. I would fight so hard for some women but you can’t fight for someone who doesn’t reciprocate.๏ฟผ

I do wish you all friends whether it’s a brotherhood, sisterhood, or any in betweens. We just connect with whoever “gets” us and who truly wants to stick around. Thank you Warrior for always sticking around as he “gets” me for sure. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜‰ I was that GIRL who watched the Ultimate Warrior most definitely but totally understood the guy vibe of the sport back then. We all have our real reasons and I am grateful for mine. Maybe things will change one day but our life lessons teach us to grow as we should. The guys in my life came for a reason just like the girls but my brotherhood gives me such fond memories that the sisters couldn’t. Just be you and don’t fight against it. We are all in this together as brothers and sisters in a way so be comfortable being the warrior you need to be always. We can be competitors but let’s do it in a healthy human way…,

P.S. I am very glad to have talked with a few in Warrior’s “brotherhood” outside of wrestling… it means so much…๐Ÿฅน

Not a Replacement! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

How is it July already warriors? Hope everyone in the U.S. had a fantastic Independence Day celebration as I do love fireworks and all the hoopla. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿงจ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡Let’s remember our freedom first. This topic is kinda a doozy so get ready to RUMBLE wrestling fans. I really wanted to use another emoji above that involved a finger but I really can’t… ๐Ÿ˜ This post can apply to everyone else just to be fair since that’s how it should be. This idea came to me after hearing several interviews on repeat over and over again. ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ™„It got me fired up as this post was born. It does concern two people as maybe some that are or were WWE fans can probably figure out. To me, the Ultimate Warrior was NOT a “replacement” for Hulk Hogan and I’ll share why. I can be unbiased but you can have your own thoughts too.๏ฟผ

I realize how the business worked. I lived and breathed through it all as a fan but we never saw behind the scenes. I was older as well so understood a little more at that time. Yes, Warrior was groomed to be next in line as the NEW face and eventual NEW champ. I get it, really I do. Sometimes, I chuckle despite some defensiveness since these wrestling topics are STILL talked about today and probably will forever be. Vince did love Warrior for many years in lieu of all their disagreements but I cannot just keep tolerating the word “replacement” in a literal sense. Even some podcasts I enjoy mention this quite frequently and seem to ask every person their opinion. We have to ask everyone ya know! ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซIt’s just so draining since come on, get to something else. They need the ratings and those questions always linger but it’s sad how with the entire history of talent, that is usually front and center.๏ฟผ

Warrior portrayed his character as his OWN and certainly not a replacement even though some just chalk up his career to besting Hogan and that’s it. I realize the torch had to be passed so the WWF back then could build up a new, good guy. Maybe some had feelings Warrior didn’t pull off the Heavyweight reign in the way they wanted but it was money based and who’s filling the seats. I did agree with one guy who stated how quite possibly they could’ve built around “Warrior Wildness” or too bad OWN didn’t exist until yours later. Hulk had Hulkamania and many catchphrases yet Warrior didn’t do anything similar so Vince became a little stuck. Some even blamed it on poor opponents or storylines but still not a replacement to me. The likability factor needs to be there but we just can’t BE exactly like someone else.๏ฟผ

Let’s switch this up to some of us here. Are we all replaceable at work or in a career? Maybe not entirely but overall, you are. Somebody else can get your spot even though you seem to be the best at it. They might not be right now but with time, patience, and training they will be soon enough. There are some who solely believe Warrior was just hired to top Hulk with no personal involvement at all. Did Warrior care at the time? Probably not entirely but we all know how much that changed and yes, I would care too. How would you feel if your coworkers or even boss said you were just hired to replace another without truly taking the time to invest in your skills? WWF did invest in Warrior but he wanted to do the character his way. Maybe you wouldn’t notice so much but me, yep.

OK, those arguing will claim Warrior had little “technical” skills and only got by on charisma and a good physique. You can say that as those worked to his advantage for sure. Many get jobs like that in the non-wrestling world too. We have to take emotion out of it but can we? I can’t which is why I’m not in that business sense but my opinion is just mine. Warrior knew their plan as time went on and had tremendous respect for Hulk as his mentor. We all know this but when it becomes more of you being a number in a way and not a name, that’s where I feel like clotheslining someone! Warrior wanted nothing more than to be himself and fought hard to prove that every day- in and out of the ring. He would never want to be a replacement only as we really shouldn’t either.๏ฟผ

Of course this is very different with one’s personal life but nobody wants to be seen as the R word when it comes to relationships especially. We aren’t just robots doing a job, we do have a mind and heart to consider also. The next best thing could be around the corner and if that’s you, have you earned your place or is it just because someone left or could be? So much to think about for sure and some opinions on this will never change in spite of many discussions. I would thoroughly dislike being thought of only to replace another. We do need a livelihood but at what cost will it take to be enough before we walk away? Warrior left for other reasons but we all become affected in many situations. Respect needs to be on both sides and if it isn’t, there will be problems.๏ฟผ

All right, I did like the Ultimate Warrior for those physical reasons at first but I fought that and learned to see more. Some never do or never did but some still tried. We all need to be someone besides that next big replacement and shouldn’t feel the need to prove ourselves worthy. We all struggle with worthiness and once you know yours, deep down you really do become irreplaceable. Whatever others think, the belief you have in yourself can never be replicated no matter if it’s business or your personal life. Don’t settle for being a replacement if it means sacrificing your integrity. Warrior never did and became so much more than being that next BIG champ. Hogan’s “replacement?” Warrior was never that to me so stop arguing and let’s move on.๏ฟผ..

P.S. I DO admire some of these podcast guys as they do have knowledge of the biz despite being little boys back then. I just wish some convos could be different.๏ฟผ.. sigh..,

Summer Camp and Dress-up Dreams ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘ 

Why, hello there warriors! We had a great time up in the Sand dunes of Northern Michigan but now, it’s back to these writings I share with all of you. I told ya dreams were coming and these are just a two count today. Wait until you read about a summer camp and a dress-up time for us girls. Long title I know.๏ฟผ..

Let’s start with summer camp. It is that season after all here in the U.S. so perfect timing. I’m actually not apologizing for the photo today as I know it’s full of errors. I decided keeping it this way fit since that gear of the Ultimate Warrior was exactly how he looked in this dream. That match was against Randy AGAIN and it was so fast paced. I took the pic when I could as most shots good enough were of his backside and I needed the match- not something from a book, the Internet, or a magazine. OK, now that you know those details, let’s get on with the dream. Oh, I couldn’t find this match on YouTube either.๏ฟผ

I was at my old grade school (yes, once more) only outside in the parking lot waiting for the summer camp teachers to come out. I questioned this later but my kids did attend a camp there a few years which was ages ago AND I had just taken a yoga class outside in a parking lot a few days prior. Those are the connections I get. So, another questionable moment was how I didn’t remember my kids being there so whose kids did I come for? Well, I realized I came to see Warrior as he was a camp counselor and I knew him. Pretty neat. The instructors were all introduced one by one as the lot was decorated with balloons, rainbow pennants, and just tons of fun stuff for the kids.๏ฟผ

Warrior’s group was waiting for him as all these counselors were way back at the entrance. Can you fans see where this is headed? It’s a loooong driveway. Warrior makes his entrance by running (of course) all the way through the lot to where his kids and I are standing. He looked exactly like that photo you see with red, yellow, and blue paint plus gear. EXACTLY. You can watch the match from 2/11/89 on: “The Ultimate Collection” DVD. I suppose he put a shirt on afterwards but that was not included, ha ha! Once the cheering stopped a little, he caught up to the kids all sweaty and hot from running. There was a hose nearby and he began taking a drink. Remember those days- if you are old enough? He then turned the hose on the kids and sprayed them as laughter broke out! He wasn’t gonna soak them as camp needed to start soon indoors but what fun. I got out of the way but it was so cute seeing him like that with these kids. Obviously, he either was still wrestling or had taken a break for the summer camp. That doesn’t matter but I laughed at this dream he gifted me with. We all had an ultimate blast!๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ˜‚ There was Camp WWE the cartoon several years back so maybe another connector…

The second one involved Dana, me, and our two youngest. My daughter and her Mattie. This was a first in a dream. Never before have I gotten any of our kids together so I take it all. It started with Dana, Mattie, and my girl all trying on different dress up clothes in an attic type area. Huh? What does this mean? I guess the girls were friends as Dana and I must’ve been too. I joined in later since my presence wasn’t part of the beginning. The attic area was off a bathroom in their house which is a little odd but ah well.๏ฟผ

You had to walk through the bathroom to get to the attic. When I arrived, I actually needed to use the bathroom so I went in and closed the door. On the vanity was this plastic bin with lots of hair claw clips. Mostly black. Us girls use those ya know. My real life here, oh my… To back up a smidge, the day before I was listening to: “80’s Wrestling the Podcast” which was all about theme music from the Golden Era. So entertaining and cool, I knew them all! I was wearing this loose bracelet and while dancing and singing (you fans would be too!) it flew off. Oh no, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I looked over and under things while the cat came in my room. She even got riled up by my frantic cleaning. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I thought it had fallen through the air duct where it would be lost forever. My screwdriver was no help as I continued listening to the podcast. I asked for help to no one in particular and it was at that moment when I spotted it. The bracelet was in my basket of claw clips on the dresser. WOW…. I knew that connection right away after waking from this dream. It seemed to end there but we were smiling and laughing together. Two dreams of playful, fun activities with one including another first.๏ฟผ

There you go warriors. Summer camp and dressing up. Warrior in one and Dana in the other. The SAME night. Both with kids and us being kid-like. Maybe I need to play more? I do remember my youngest liking some “pretend” clothes like a few princess gowns, feather boas, tiaras, jewelry, and fancy big girl shoes. She isn’t quite like that anymore as casual fits her style these days. I am remembering hats in the dream too but everything was mixed up in a big box. No idea on the why but I get used to not fully questioning everything anymore. I may not understand all the meanings but these dreams are truly wonderful to me. How exactly they get planned out up in “parts unknown” remains a mystery but sometimes I do get the meanings as many are quite obvious. I always thank Warrior for being part of this all however it works. Dreams have been my “thing” since childhood so it makes sense to me on the validity and vividness.๏ฟผ

I can only imagine the great time those kids had with Warrior as their camp counselor. It reminded me of when he came as a preschool teacher too.., I’m so incredibly humbled but oh so grateful to know more on this warrior journey of mine. Don’t discredit your dreams either like I’ve always said. I’ve had other crazy ones lately too! Must be that June full moon which affects me. ๐ŸŒ• Your life and the people in it matter however they connect to you. So, get out there and PLAY a little. That’s my message so I will pass it on to all of you. Get those zzzzz’s too.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด

P.S. I DID have LOTS of stuff happen on Warrior’s birthday, oh my goodness… My Alexa “randomly” was playing in the other room as I had not asked her anything… The song was a Bobby Brown one and not familiar to me but so cool! I had just been on some social media that was Warrior related and was in the house alone..,

~~~I also got a new song while working out that day and as I asked Alexa who sang it- she said the group but got BLEEPED with the title!!!! I could not believe that but just laughed … that was a first..,

~~~ Here’s the three count: I had to make a quick trip to the grocery store and when arriving, the speaker was playing : “Two Hearts” by Phil Collins! Fans will know that connection with Warrior but I tried SO hard not to laugh as the produce guy was nearby.. I kept saying to Warrior how it isn’t my birthday, it’s his! There were a few other moments while waking up that day but will leave it at a 3 count!

Celebrate Your Compliments ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป

Do you celebrate your compliments? That might sound odd but I bet some of you don’t. What I mean is this: when someone gives you a complement, do you say thank you like we should or do you give some other explanation? Thank you can be hard to say like I’m sorry but I know firsthand how it works. Us “sensitive” folks chalk it up to a coincidence or: “this ol’ thing?” Here’s an example: ” Wow, you look great in that outfit!” Some would respond: “I just threw it together, no big deal.” It’s tough to accept a complement and give thanks back because sometimes we are always the ones giving and not receiving. Perhaps too, we haven’t gotten many compliments overtime so our answers become nervous in nature.๏ฟผ

Here’s another take on it all. Do you complement another expecting something in return? Come on, we are all guilty of this but really just take notice. No expectations, remember? It is a difficult pill to swallow not taking something personally when it affects us negatively but when it is positive, we feel confused. The negative comments we stew over and find hard to forget but the good ones seem to get brushed aside like they don’t matter. THEY DO. You are worthy of them despite being humble which is a lifelong lesson for me that started in childhood. Let’s get into adult situations though.๏ฟผ

I remember being at a summer bonfire party years ago and my friend and I walked over to the barn where the band played. We listened for a bit and then one of the bandmates came over to us. Yes, we had been drinking but just wine coolers which my one wouldn’t have made a difference. I was a smart girl. Anyway, this guy noticed me in my black tight sleeveless shirt so I thought he’d be flirting. I was not ” hit on” very often but he complemented my upper arms. Yep, you read that right. How about that ladies? ๐Ÿซค I had been working out but not using arm weights back then. Maybe today’s girls would love that as fitness has changed so much but I was a little surprised. Um… yeah, thanks I guess. Nothing about anything else but hey, I was proud of my results and didn’t celebrate that too much. He went on to play more sets as I just moved on as well.๏ฟผ

Another memory was many years ago when I was heavier but then slim down. I was making too many “hearty” meals and had added on more weight than I thought. As some may know, this issue has been written about before but slim fast worked plus my “muscle arms”~ ha ha. We were at my sister’s house and her friend noticed my smaller frame. I’m not one to flaunt this type of thing and never posted the weight loss journey on social media. This woman was so complementary and I felt awkward with her being larger but she never seemed jealous at all. I was humbled and overwhelmed. We’ve known each other since teenhood. My mom comes over and after this friend said how great I looked, Mom says: “she doesn’t need to lose any more.” Is that a compliment or just a statement? Very different reaction from me on that which takes us to the next point.๏ฟผ

Now, it’s Warrior’s turn of course. Many probably know all the negative statements said about him over the years which would be SO many but here’s some that are quite common: ( am just paraphrasing on this.) “Yeah, I worked with the guy… he did his gimmick… looked great… got paid well… the fans loved him…” And on and on… O.K. Those CAN be complements and for the most part are but in many of their cases, it was NOT. They are merely just stating facts without stepping on toes so to speak or starting controversy. Yep, I’ve heard it all but it’s been done to me as well, thanks Captain Obvious! ๐Ÿ™„

When I was applying for the second preschool job, my former boss would not say anything specific about my time there. I had quit for various reasons and there was some animosity. Luckily, I had many other references but the boss is the boss. It was just how I had worked there for 6 years having been an aide for 2. Nothing much else but the compliments from others I celebrated for sure. Business is different as people need to protect their own a** so take those real compliments in stride warriors. How about that? I had another three count of examples to share (:

It does involve principles as I’ve stated before but is it harder for you to give a complement or receive one? We do need to choose our words carefully but with Warrior, honesty was what you’d get. There were those he would complement greatly but I’m not sure if they’d appreciate it for what it was worth. Some definitely WOULD but others maybe could’ve cared less what he thought of them and vice versa for sure. It all depends on the person and situation they are in or what deserves a complement. If one earns a complement from you, take it and acknowledge it fully. Some may be direct and not mince words like Warrior had done, so will you be offended? Again, it varies but I for one get tired of “walking on eggshells” around others always thinking everyone will get offended. People will no matter what seems to happen.๏ฟผ

Give and receive those compliments in the right way warriors and celebrate them. You will know when and if they are truly genuine. Stay humble but never think you are not worthy when it’s a job well done. Some may hold high standards but do your best and learn more every day. That’s the lesson of a real warrior.๏ฟผ..

P.S. Happy Birthday to Warrior tomorrow in parts unknown! I usually get “something” so we shall see… I complement you Warrior so celebrate all the GOOD you did.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’–

P.P.S. I have been given many compliments on my work and it’s always so rewarding. I thank all of YOU for contributing to this world in your own unique way.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘

My Warrior Painting Therapy ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒฅ๐Ÿ’–

Hello warriors! I am BACK but then in a few weeks we will be on vacation so you get a bit of new posts until then. Miss me? In some ways, this writing break was tough but I was able to concentrate on other things~ like painting. I didn’t share my little journal art which was mostly nature inspired but decided instead to show a painting from 2017. This is called “Ocean Serenity” and it hangs in my home. Have any of you heard of these painting places that guide you to create a picture? I signed up for a class through a yoga studio at the time. I never thought I’d be painting again but it was suggested to help with my creativity in writing.๏ฟผ

First, I had my warrior therapy last year with PT and now painting. That ocean picture wasn’t too challenging as I’m sure it would’ve been easy for Warrior. I was excited but my issues were more social besides painting back then. The owner of the yoga studio was coming and as usual, I had such high expectations. I’m learning on that… She’d be the only one I would know as we did chair yoga halfway through the class. She wanted to establish herself in the community and I loved this idea. We’d talk, sip wine,๐Ÿทand paint together. It would be such fun! No idea she brought a friend.๏ฟผ

No big deal since we could all have some girl time despite this session being a family day at “Pinot’s Palette.” It became awkward though when she asked me to take their photo together. Yeah, then I knew they would be a twosome with me flying solo. I still followed along as music played in the background while sipping my wine. The ocean was progressing nicely and then I heard some fun 80’s music which got my groove back on. “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds was a song I would seem to hear on repeat after Warrior passed for months among others. That brought a smile and a chuckle despite the social tension. It was then that the friend of the yoga teacher complemented my painting as she was struggling with hers. I gotta say that surprised me but I humbly accepted her praise.๏ฟผ

I actually struggled getting the skyline just right. Not perfection as this class might’ve frustrated my daughter, but just the colors. Where you see that hot pink~ should be orange! I tried but couldn’t keep over-correcting so pink it remained (: I love both colors but guess mine needed to stay pink. My favorite part is the fence posts. They just pop out from a distance but with water pictures, I usually get lost in the perspective. I never went there again and that place is now a relocated popcorn shop. The pandemic am sure factored in but grateful to have had that opportunity while proving my painting ability, albeit a guided one.๏ฟผ

Besides painting, so much has happened in my family and there’s still more to come. My daughter turned “sweet 16,” is close to getting her drivers license, my son graduated high school, and I’ll be prepping for his party in early July. This vacation can’t come soon enough until it all returns with the boy getting his wisdom teeth out on top of all the craziness! I am trying my very best to remain calm as everything seems to come all at once. Painting truly was therapeutic as I’m sure Warrior knows. I would have an idea but didn’t give it too much thought before hand. There were some clouds against a pink cotton candy sky, a daisy flower, a monarch butterfly, a beautiful red, orange, and yellow sun, summer bugs, a sailboat in the water, some simple designs, plus a spring tree with flower blossoms. The sun, butterfly, and tree are my favorites of those.๏ฟผ โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ•ธโ›ต๏ธ๐ŸŒณ

Have you ever needed to change your routine up some to get back a spark of creativity? Maybe you haven’t but we all need to recharge and switch things around for variety sometimes. Just look at how Warrior approached his character in wrestling. Some aspects needed to remain the same but always needed to be innovative with his approach and I believe he succeeded. It wasn’t just him personally or professionally and for us fans as well.๏ฟผ

I also worked on a new YouTube video while breaking from writing. It’s all about the challenges of dealing with our old 3D world while accepting the new 5D one. Yeah, it’s kind of spiritual but I break it down (hopefully in a simple way) for all you confused folks out there. I also updated the website with some new links of more recent Podcasts while deleting those inactive ones no longer valid. Check it out if wanting more me, ha ha!๏ฟผ

So warriors- I do hope all of you reading are well as we move into summer quite soon in the U.S. We’ve had enough rain so I’m manifesting a warm season as we love the outdoors, our pool, and being in nature. Maybe you’ll do some painting too? Next week is more about Warrior as some of you fans might be wondering. After that post will be another week off but I have some more blogs coming so please stay tuned… Thank you all for reading and catching up on old posts if you did. Warrior himself has inspired a few more ideas and dreams so get your gear in place and head to the squared circle! Oh, and hearing that graduation song brought much emotion my way but as a warrior, I moved through it all. Hard to believe my “Until We Meet Again” post was last September and now it is June. It mentions my senior year and my son’s…, I will “see”you all next week!๏ฟผ

No, warriors- I wasn’t at an Indy 500 race or had been in the area but my husband was. He rarely if ever goes away on business and if he does, it’s just for the day. Sometimes, there will be the occasional overnight so back in 2015, he went to Indianapolis. I remember Warrior mentioning how the WWF used to go there a lot in his early years and well, he was from Indiana which is also his oldest daughter’s name so how about that? WrestleMania VIII was also held in the Hoosier dome there in 1992.

My husband had gone east to PA and even further west to the St. Louis arch in Missouri but never Indy. He was able to see the track and went into a souvenir shop. The kids were excited to get some T-shirts as gifts plus a few other goodies when he arrived home. My daughter’s shirt was all about the DreamWorks movie “Turbo” which came out in 2013. We actually bought the film since they loved it so much! A snail racing in the Indy 500? Where do they come up with such ideas? Cute movie though.๏ฟผ

Am remembering the only thing I struggled with when he was gone became math homework. Ugh, so not my subject and even then- the kids were past the ages where Mama could help. We’d screenshot the problems they’d get stuck on and send them as he’d call from the hotel room with answers. I let them stay up later and wait outside on the patio with the dog as the sun set waiting for Daddy to get home the next night. Of all places to go back then and he gets sent to Indiana. It was also in April, oh my… ๐Ÿ’™ That’s almost an hour away from Warrior’s hometown of Crawfordsville. Why not north to Michigan or even south to Kentucky? Nope, he went one state away to the west. “One State Away” is a chapter in my book Spirit and Belief but that’s another story. I still think it would be cool to take a trip there just to see the track and even though I am not much of a racing fan, it’s historic which is very popular to the state. It started back in 1909, such rich history. I wonder if Warrior ever got there? ๐ŸŽ

It’s held Memorial Day weekend here and that is always around my daughter’s birthday in May. We did like the 2019 movie ” Ford vs. Ferrari” and believe it or not, there was a Warrior connection but that’s just a little sidenote for me… ๐Ÿ˜‰Signs aren’t just in dreams, when I’m working out, looking at U.W. videos, or even during meditation.๏ฟผ

Moving on as that was just a little short memory of Indiana once again. Remember how I talked about color last week? Well, that connects to something I was advised to try– painting๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ . Warrior was an artist as is my girl so why me? At my last Energy Healing session, I had asked about some new issues and especially concerning my right leg. There’s always something, huh? I have had discomfort but nothing that would impair me from doing activities. I do have those internal fibroids and a hamstring that acts up sometimes but this seemed different. It can be just the calf muscle but then in the upper thigh. I was wondering if we could possibly explore this so she did.

Those guides or angels of mine came through and related how it’s a creative issue. We always assume the physical but what does that mean? I know with our brains how the left side is logic and right is creative but is our body different? Turns out after looking up some info, she discovered that our right side is the masculine while the right is feminine. Not to worry here, we need both and use both every day. My masculine side of doing, going, and thinking needs a rest. The feminine side is the intuitive or relaxed and the part that needs me to just BE for a bit. It makes sense since the sign of Virgo (me) is controlled by the planet Mercury which is intellect. Geminis have this too. Don’t want to get into too much astrology here, but it’s very true on this journey of mine.๏ฟผ

There’s some new info for all of you I bet as it was for me as well concerning the body types. It seems I have some creative blocks with writing and I actually knew this. Both blogs have kinda put me in slumps lately and I’ve struggled bringing engaging content. I LOVE writing and sharing with everyone on these platforms but it was suggested I not wait for my summer trip and break now. At least for a month anyway. I was shocked to hear that and tears formed a little. My guides don’t steer me wrong and I know I needed to listen to these words. Painting was their idea but not to give it much thought. Just even a few strokes on paper regularly to feel inspired in a new way. I’m not expecting a masterpiece but those two Geminis in my life that are artists can witness my “creations!” This will be a first taking such a long break but I have painted before. It was part of a yoga class and my beach scene hangs in our house. All of it was guided though while this is to be spontaneous. I need to go with the flow more and just BE… I do have free will to not take their advice but I’m learning to listen more.๏ฟผ

This actually is a good time to break for me as soooo much will be happening with my kids and family concerning important milestones. Plus, I’m liking how that pic of Warrior you see is more current than a wrestler pic so that fits to end this month of April. I will MISS connecting on here but to anyone new, you have 5.5 years of posts to get all caught up! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I will return hopefully more creatively inspired and maybe a lighter tone. I do share quite a bit as SO many personal stories get back in my Warrior memories but perhaps these writings will take on a different angle. Not to fret, I will always relate in the same way with Warrior stuff and myself but evolving we must do.

I still hear from fans and even those who have read my book so it’s always very encouraging. A woman in my FB intuitive group had messaged me a little while back about re-reading the pages on a spiritual awakening. Had to look up those sections to be sure! When she had sent that message, I was in the middle of reading something Warrior had written. I told her that and she commented on it being a sign. Of course it was because I always believe.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ“—

I believe in all of you too whether you are spiritual, a fan of Warrior, or just like my stuff. Spend time doing what you love but take those breaks too. We have to let go of control and give that doing side a rest. Most of us aren’t pro wrestlers who have to GO all the time. We also need to switch up our routines every now and then. Guess this is what I am advised to do so despite some initial fear, I believe it is for my highest good. Happy early month of May warriors and reach out to me about your ultimate stories! This leg block has got to go… Let’s all take time to slow down on that Indy track and enjoy the ride.๏ฟผ

P.S. I have also loved getting in touch with some other guys Warrior knew personally the last several years of his life. I am humbled they took the time to respond.๏ฟผ โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน๐Ÿ˜Š

P.P.S. I feel like watching the movie “Turbo.” Maybe I will (:

*** You can get caught up here as well fans! I write a more in-depth spiritually based blog but this week was about the break… Check it out for more topics if you feel the vibe PLUS, book info is on there too!

The Color Blur ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’–

What a color blur April and May 2014 was for me in so many ways. No, I’m NOT gonna go back to all that but this is more a continuation of sorts. That expression came to mind because of all the busy stuff which happened in spring of that year. I had mentioned in the post of 2020 “Many Colorful Masks” about my daughter’s painted butterfly cheeks but am expanding on this just a bit today. Here’s a little recap of one event. Right around Warrior’s passing, much was going on in my family life and I needed all that craziness to do. A few days after April 8th, my girl had this dance party at school and got her face painted. I had said how she wanted to keep them on for her Grandpa’s big 70th birthday dinner that Saturday. With shaking hands, Mama redid them just enough so she could show off. There’s more to that time though which I haven’t shared.๏ฟผ

The birthday night continued as another color blur was part of me. A few days earlier as a tribute to Warrior, I decided to paint my nails pink, orange, and lime green while alternating of course. ๐Ÿ’… Nobody would even notice (not really anyway) but to me, it was an honor. I wanted them to notice the butterfly painted cheeks of my little girl but my nails, that was just mine and mine alone. We all had a great time as I needed it but still felt like crawling away to be by myself.๏ฟผ

A week later was Easter which I decided to host that year. We just had that Holiday here in the U.S. I had made this decision before April and not just solely as a distraction. My one sister offered to host considering that butterfly girl of mine was making her 1st Communion in May and back to back family events are quite a lot. I told her no but thanks for the offer to help. It would all work out while unbeknownst to them, my life needed the activities. That Easter brought more color blurs of eggs, baskets, little girl dresses, and much more fun but internally, I was a mess and would be for quite the time. I did play “Just Dance” on the Wii in our basement to “Beautiful” by One Direction against the girls. Those lyrics got me out of a funk and I came close to winning! Give that song a listen.๏ฟผ..

About a month or so later, the 1st Communion prepping was upon us. We settled for a dress online that she liked but no veil. She didn’t want one. No tiara either. I didn’t care but explained to her how just about every girl would be wearing one so when she’d see them, to not be upset. It would be too late then. She accepted this even though her mind changes quite often. That’s so anti-Gemini… โ™Š๏ธ I’ve always applauded her own warrior spirit of independence and not conforming. Yet another reminder back then which would for sure get a lump in my throat. I am that “rebel” too but just didn’t have the voice enough as a child which she always did and still does.๏ฟผ

This takes us to shoe shopping and maybe something for her hair. All of her questions made my lump get bigger as I had to stop tears. “Why does everything have to be white, I want some color!” She said that often. Guess where my thoughts went? I tried to explain it to her but even my words sound so silly to me now. White is pure, holy, and it’s tradition. They were all religious aspects which I don’t truly follow too much these days. I have instructed the kids but now they’re on their own with those belief systems. It was so forced on me as a kid and despite some beautiful memories, we need to do what works for us spiritually and religious conformity just doesn’t anymore. You can believe otherwise, no judgment but I have moved forward.๏ฟผ

It became another color blur as we did find colorful shoes but they weren’t in her size. White ones had to match the dress after all! Much of her rebelling and questioning made my emotional volcano close to erupting. She got her color and we loved it. We bought a headband with a hot pink flower on the side. I couldn’t have been prouder and when she saw all those veil wearing girls, she didn’t mind. My warrior girl indeed.๏ฟผ ๐ŸŒบ

That time was so fast for me as the month and a half ran by just like The Ultimate Warrior would! A color blur of his passing, butterfly cheeks, party balloons and cake, my nails, Easter decor, and then a beautiful pink flower to top off that white dress. O.K., she looked so cute like a mini bride and it’s sort of like “marrying Jesus” but there are many ways to be close to Jesus or any others we may worship. Not wanting to preach here but just being honest as I do. I can’t forget my purple tulips that bloomed that spring too as part of this colorful past. They’ve been mentioned plenty!๏ฟผ

The Ultimate Warrior could be quite the color blur with all that he did over the years as time seemed to go very quickly. I’m grateful I could keep up with those exciting years of watching him perform just like I could keep up with that busy colorful time of April and May in 2014. Whew. It’s amazing I held it all together but knew my moments alone were just for me and family stuff counted too. Where are my Emmy Awards, lol?! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I had to balance all that was happening around me involving Warrior, the Universe, and my present life. Another three count. What a color blur it was as time had slowed down just enough so I could take it all in. After all, we need color to paint our world. Just allow your white canvas to expand a little, you may learn something. I sure have.๏ฟผ..

P.S. In the previous post about masks, you’ll read another Easter connector. It concerned a certain egg I painted one year. It was the same colors (blur) as the batteries I got!๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿฅš๐Ÿ”‹๐Ÿ”‹**Of course they are both Warrior related… ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Wrestling Confession

Yes, I do have a wrestling confession to make is it may surprise many of you loyal readers on here. I’m not entirely sure what you could be thinking so I’ll tag you in. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค”You probably have heard me say countless of times that I don’t watch any wrestling anymore and haven’t regularly since the Ultimate Warrior disappeared from my TV in Nov. of 1992. That pretty much has remained the same despite some little moments here and there. You all can possibly guess what those were all about. I have watched RAW more lately. There, I said it. The big reveal! The whole 3 hours? No. SmackDown or NXT? Not so much but again, some content on occasion. AEW Dynamite isn’t on my list either although Sting being there is awesome! My bro loves Chris Jericho.๏ฟผ

Once in a while, I will be interested in a certain match and might catch a few minutes. I know for most wrestling fans, 3 hours brings so much entertainment and excitement but it seems very loooong to me. Once you get into a storyline or character, I’m sure the time flies but personally that’s even longer than watching a movie! I heard “The Batman” movie is that long but in a theater, I would need more cushion support to sit! ๐Ÿ˜œ I gotta give you WWE fans (or any other organization) credit for watching all that you do.๏ฟผ

I guess after all, I have more to confess. Once WrestleMania XXXVIII ended, I knew videos would be posted. Yes, I looked up all the results but of course some matches intrigued me more than others. Boy, did they top themselves on this one! *** SPOILER ALERT HERE*** I also had to see The Undertaker get inducted. Despite my earlier posts of years past, that character has had an incredible run as the Phenom, Deadman, and of course Taker among other names. Thank you Mark for gifting WWE with over 30 years in the business. How about his hug with Vince? Too sweet… The Ultimate Warrior’s name should’ve been listed at the top since he was Taker’s first big name opponent, just sayin’! Never say never from him. We’ll see what happens.๏ฟผ.. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿชฆโšฑ๏ธโšฐ๏ธ

Speaking of Vince, his win in the ring was a first at a WM and then the encounter with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin making a return. Legendary, just legendary. The Stunner wins again! Hard to believe WM runs two nights but with all those divisions, guess that’s a must. Everyone was talking about Cody Rhodes as well and we can’t ever forget all the amazing women Superstars. I’d stay out of Bianca’s way with all that hair, yikes! Oh, I’ve always loved Roman Reigns too. Oops, I never liked “heels” back in the day but he didn’t start out that way. Another confession.๏ฟผ

Who is this girl going on and on about WWE? Clearly, she isn’t me but maybe this time, she came out to play a little. Does anyone old enough remember the other WWF shows back in the day? We had Superstars on Saturday A.M. at 11, Challenge on Sunday A.M., and then later on Primetime Friday at 10 P.M. I think– at least where I lived anyways. Let’s not forget SNME, The Main Event, and back when they only had a few PPV’s each year. There was just The Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and The Survivor Series. I do recall In Your House and King of the Ring but look at all the many more they do now. RAW used to compete with WCW’s NITRO and I remember WCW being on Saturdays after WWF at noon on a different channel. So, one could watch both if you wanted those two hours. Yep, just an hour each.๏ฟผ

I added up some math here and get this. All 3 WWF (later WWE) shows at an hour a piece equates all 3 hours of RAW now. Crazy, isn’t it? You can watch 7 hours of WWE entertainment each week plus catching up with Peacock or even their Wrestling Network. SmackDown and NXT equally 2 hours each. I bet most of your fans do ALL that but in pure honesty, it’ll never be me.๏ฟผ

Back in my day, an hour actually was enough— emotionally speaking! Unless I was watching SNME which took Saturday Night Live’s time slot being 1.5 hours. I’m not a night owl so staying up until 1 A.M. was always like a submission hold but I’d never tap out! Sometimes, I’d be babysitting until 2 A.M. and couldn’t keep my eyes open. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ด There were those times like I’ve said before where that hour show became “continued” in a way with a match starting 5 minutes or so before the end! We were just left hanging until next week.๏ฟผ

I believe I’m all done getting caught up lately but still know this. With social media these days, I know what’s going on and with always having my big Bro to let me know “important” stuff, I’m in the wrestling loop. You’ll not catch me watching one of their entire shows but if my WMVI DVD wasn’t skipping over parts, I would watch ALL of that and not just the Ultimate Challenge! That’s what I get for buying a used DVD, ugh… My old school girl self is always there or these warrior writings wouldn’t exist. She has evolved though and appreciates it all. Just think, Vince will be close to 80 when WrestleMania XXXX comes around! That’s only two years away– wow!๏ฟผ

P.S. (Of last week…) I forgot my OWN number 8 connector this year. I got my Warrior logo tattoo on my daughter’s 8th birthday. She’ll be 16 soon.๏ฟผ..

P.P.S. So glad the crowd also acknowledged Triple H! He is an outstanding guy (:

An Infinite Legacy ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

***First off, congrats to all the winners at WrestleMania XXXVIII and all those newly inducted into the WWE HOF class of 2022. Just 3 words- “THANK YOU TAKER… “โšฐ๏ธโšฑ๏ธ

Here we are again warriors with this time of year. How is it April already? Wrestlemania 38 just happened as did this blog marking 5 .5 years a few days ago. This post isn’t entirely numbers-based but I will share some that definitely connect today because that’s what I do. Warrior will be gone 8 years on the 8th (Friday.) I know with birthdays it’s called your “golden” one if that happens. At least that’s what I was told. For me, I turned 19 (so long ago now…) on the 19th in the 9th month. Who knows? I don’t share this to be sad but just an observation. 8 is an infinity number which beckons this title. Warrior’s younger daughter Mattie referenced infinity from the book: “A Life Lived Forever.” She mentions in her letter about infinity which makes me think of Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story. His older daughter Indy had referenced the word legacy in her letter. An infinite legacy with Ultimate memories always.๏ฟผ

I’ll share a 3 count of number connectors with all of you. I might’ve added this as a PS many posts back but now that the date is here, it’s time. Just when I think some milestones, dates, or numbers are done for a bit, more show up. It truly is infinite. Are you ready to follow? Here we go… The last WM Warrior was part of is 30. That of course was 8 years ago. WM VIII is turning 30 this year. Also, April 5, 1992 was WM VIII’s date as was Warrior’s induction of 2014. He will forever have two dates of April 5 as real significance to him.๏ฟผ

I also had two special dates of April 5 as well which I’ve shared before but will again briefly. Mine don’t relate to 30 or 8 but I can always remember. 2014 was our first basketball game we attended together as a family and in 2016, two signs fell down in my house. Both were that date of April 5 so Warrior and I just have a 2 count of early April moments there. Technically, I have another April 5 that I chose. It was a book event and that has been blogged too. To summarize here, this time becomes a 3 count of 8 on the 8th, WMVIII turning 30 and April 5 being WM VIII’s date plus Warrior’s 2014 HOF induction. Warrior’s last WM weekend was 30 which was 8 years ago. 30 and 8, synchronicity wins the match yet again. Oh, and WM VIII took place in Indiana. 2 Warrior connectors. Are you all caught up?๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ˜ณ3๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ, 8๏ธโƒฃ

Let’s switch to some other views on the Ultimate Warrior’s or Warrior’s infinite legacy which continues on despite numbers, dates, and always milestones. I’m so humbled and honored when people๏ฟผ contact me regarding this blog, my book, or just to share their OWN wrestling memories about the character of U. W. Here are some of their words I received as a few maybe even weren’t initially fans of his but found him years later on many YouTube videos:

“remarkable, amazing, inspirational.”

“brilliant…deep, thoughtful. His depth of knowledge exceeds anyone on the news.”

“Such a patriot and foresight he had into America.”

“Impactful…he was an extraordinary man…It was such a massive loss.”

A few had listened to Warrior’s speeches on many topics and even shared them with friends. The “Injections of Inspiration” videos were mentioned since they contained no “BS” advice for one loyal fan. Another wanted to know more about his collection of artwork, book recommendations, and was a long time U.W. fan. He asked if I had anything additional to share and called Warrior’s writings “treasures.” This man wanted to get my book and couldn’t wait to dive into the old blog posts of Warrior’s I had sent him. I try to offer as much as I can within reason of course and very touched when they share personal stories with me.๏ฟผ

Vince McKee who I spoke with on his “Pick Six” podcast with “Kee on Sports,” even left me a super nice review on Amazon. Yes, he might be a little biased with knowing me personally but he is himself a fellow author so understands the work. He had this to say about Warrior: “he would be very proud.” He added how the Warrior’s messages bring an “inner peace and spirit to people.” He compliments me of course but I wanted to share Warrior words today. He didn’t have to take time out of his very busy schedule to write that at all, but he did and I am grateful.

So, yes indeed- the Ultimate Warrior and Warrior both have an infinite legacy. Even if there were disagreements, differences of opinions, or other negative naysayers, he lives on and always will. I’m very fortunate to continue doing what I do here and it makes me happy knowing others find his work outside of wrestling as well. We will leave our own infinite legacy of some kind so my wish is that all of you do many things in your life which will reflect that. Don’t let one thing define you and pursue all that interests you. Warrior did, I am, and you should too.๏ฟผ

The numbers change every year but we need to go on and do what we can to make a difference. 30 and 8 will move forward as will every other milestone that we treasure and cherish. Hard to believe all these WM’s after 8 are in their 30’s now! How is that even possible? The Ultimate Warrior will mark 35 years on TV in November as it seems I just wrote of his 30th 5 years ago. 8 on the 8th is such a WOW reflective number for me as it is for most fans too. We all grow older, change, and evolve because we have to in life. Let’s be our OWN warrior selves and keep remembering, celebrating, and honoring the life of the one and only Warrior man. You will forever keep running as I always believe in your most Ultimate spirit. Thank you Warrior for your infinite legacy.๏ฟผ

That 80โ€™s Vibe! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’–

*** A quick note before I begin today: All the BEST of health and happiness to Triple H on his official retirement. I thank him for 30 years of “The Game” and for his tireless work to get the Ultimate Warrior in the HOF. I will always be so grateful to him.., ๐Ÿ’™

Look at that. A rare selfie of me and I gotta admit– it wasn’t easy to do. I don’t paint Ultimate Warrior’s mask or anything similar to his logo on my face so you are in for a real treat, lol! Think I did it years ago with ๐Ÿ’„… Anyways, it totally fits with the 80’s vibe of this story and I just had to do it. Today, it’s about some events in my life and of course Warrior’s that were possibly a little silly, embarrassing, or just different. I remember them all and fans of his will probably too. We both get that 3 count again ( in a way) and I’ll start with him. Oh, those fun years of the 1980s.๏ฟผ

I had recently remembered WWE’s Slammy Awards which began in 1986 and the Ultimate Warrior winning posthumously for best return in 2014. I bet many of you longtime fans remember all those music videos the Superstars of yesteryear made back in the mid-80s? “If You Only Knew” was a musical number closing out the 1987 Slammys with the entire roster on stage. U.W. is in the back row and it’s very farcical but we loved it all. I laughed so hard when finding this the other day, my side actually hurt! That brings us to one of these moments I’m referencing today. Koko B. Ware performed “Piledriver” (I know that album!) for Song of the Year. Ultimate Warrior among some others were dressed as construction workers. One article said how “Jim Hellwig” probably felt uncomfortable but really, I don’t know? Would he think it to be foolish or did he have a good time anyway? It’s so goofy, you don’t want to watch and yet we do.๏ฟผ

I saw all of their musical “talents” from “Land of 1000 Dances,” “Tutti Frutti,” and even Vince’s performance of his BIG hit: “Stand Back!” Always have to give such props to Vince for his creativity and for pushing that crazy envelope into mainstream culture.๏ฟผ WWF wanted to be like MTV. Remember when they just showed music videos? Let’s move ahead a few years to 1990 when Warrior was heavyweight champ. I know many have brought up that goofy video of Phil Collins along with Warrior dancing and performing in a ring to Phil’s popular song: “Two Hearts.” Yet another moment where I wonder what Warrior’s thoughts were. It’s all business but some things I think about. My brother reminded me of the WWF using Phil’s song: “Easy Lover” for their first WrestleMania theme. Really? Why THAT song? Why both? Kind of weird, don’t ya think? Maybe Phil was a fan so they got him again years later as part of a “movie” where he was following some TV execs around. This was technically 1990 but close enough to the 80’s and what a crazy vibe it was. Those songs though. Yeah, they make me think of wrestling, lol!๏ฟผ๐Ÿคฃ

Now, let’s move on to some of MY 80’s moments that were funny, slightly awkward, and yet so memorable in many ways. We’ll begin with 4th grade. Yes, that grade again but there was something else. My class was performing: “Peter and the Wolf” for parents to come watch. I can’t recall if everyone got a part but I was the little red bird. All I had to do was chirp and tweet on top of a bench but had no red to wear. My school gym shorts would work with white tights. Yeah, that’s a fashion statement. It was the early 80’s –gimme a break and I was 9 I think. My mom took a photo, oh boy. I had my arms outstretched with an ugly short haircut and chirping away. All that silly stuff for school but it always boosted my confidence on performing.๏ฟผ

This next one is my favorite from 8th grade. I always thought it was 7th but am thinking with graduation and all, it was 8th. As part of our end-of-the-year grade, we had to make a music video. Nothing like those ol’ WWF Superstars but this was a big deal. Some kids videotaped us or gave a report but I was in a group of girls. Our song was: “Ghostbusters.” I may have mentioned this before but it’s worth a repeat. I walked out 1st just like during H. S. Graduation only this time, different music of course. We rocked it and without being biased, were the best! Our group went first so we could just relax and watch all the others.

I was a “ghostbuster” with one of my hats from home (either Chuck E. Cheese or Niagara Falls?) while holding a toy gun. Us 3 girls had to say: ” Bustin’ makes me feel good!” I feel so different about that now as good spirits, not ghosts are welcome by me (: We had it all planned out as hard work paid off. Warrior would agree. With all the practices after school and in backyards, we had a hit. There were us “busters,” old ladies with umbrellas, and even our very own ghost friend wearing her glasses over a sheet! So much fun, yet ridiculous all at once. I can still remember some of the other kids videos. A boy group did: “One Night in Bangkok” which makes me think of Mike Tyson now from “The Hangover” movie. Great.., now, all those songs are in my head!!! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽง

The last experience was my junior year of choir in high school. Choir again, I know! We had a new Director but she wanted to make all these changes and switched the rules up some. Sounds like someone else, I wonder who? This new teacher began to introduce dancing. What? I didn’t sign up for this! For one concert, we danced and guess what? It was a big success and the following year she started a show choir that performed along with many other schools. Despite all that, I hated it. Every minute of it.๏ฟผ

๏ฟผ We even did a song with our Dads (I didn’t ask mine but my partner did) called: “Big Spender.” Is she kidding? How is THAT appropriate? Look up the lyrics… The crowd loved it though as we had matching dresses and danced our hearts out on that stage. All those dance steps, practices, and frustrations which led to something great. I thought it strange and felt so nervous since this was choir, not a dance competition. That 80’s vibe strikes again, always with good results. I did remember a few other songs we performed that actually were pretty good.๏ฟผ One was: “And all that Jazz” from the musical Chicago.

So, there you have it. Warrior’s 3 count of: “If You Only Knew,” being a construction worker for “Piledriver,” and dancing with Phil Collins in: “Two Hearts.” Again, with songs that don’t match despite their popularity. OK, I know his is really a 2 count since the first ones were both during the Slammy Awards but I’m counting them separate! My 3 count is: “Peter and the Wolf,” “Ghostbusters,” and “Big Spender.” We both did a music video too. At least he got paid for his goofy stuff. What a (mostly) 80’s vibe that time was which brought some silliness, awkwardness, and always so much fun anyways. In spite of everything, I had many laughs. I hope Warrior did too.๏ฟผ

P.S. You probably won’t see me with face paint again but you other warriors can paint away! I’ll dance to “Ghostbusters” anytime though! Just not “Big Spender…”
