Spread the Love

I said I would post what I have been up to in relation to my absence here on the blob-site when I had some more time, and the dust settled.
I have been a busy woman all summer long. 
No, the dust isn't settling, but I am adapting to the fact that the earth is seemingly spinning faster than before- or perhaps it is my perception of it which has shifted gears. 
 I have long nails now [huh?,] unruly brown hair [not pink or whatevs] and am doing some cool freelance teaching. I am experiencing other interesting changes which have been molding me into the latest Violet 3.0 as well. 
Perfect example:
I am taking each day one moment at a time, instead of fretting and nervously anticipating and such. Carrying on in that fashion only made life suck, so it had to go. 

Accept change as a good thing each time, and it is.

What I have been up to is synchronicity. And Love. 
"WTF?!?!?" you say. 
Let me tell you.

I have mentioned in the past that I was into astrology and tarot and other divination modalities. I have been spending more time contemplating, sharing ideas about and studying metaphysics all this summer than ever before. It has lead me to another wonderful group of like-minded folks with whom I share stories with and learn from. I am now involved on a higher level with the astrological website and have been spending much of my time getting used to my new cyber-home there. 

Can you feel the shifts taking place?

In times of transition and evolution, it can be difficult to gauge who will and who won't be receptive &/or supportive* to said changes. The time wasn't right for me to share. But I am here now and I wanted to blab about it...

In short, the changes are big and small, but all important regardless. 

~I started capitalizing my I s, as a way to put myself out there more seriously- even if it's subtle. 
~I no longer feel the need to be as bitchy. I am still inclined to emote snarkilly, but it is much more selective now. 

SnArky, NOT SnOrky!

~I am letting lots of baggage go. My body is even changing in response to the shift in my spirit. I have been forgiving the creators of wounds from my past, myself included.
I have let more friends go from my circle, in peace and without judgement. 

Let it go.

~I am feeling calm and happy- regardless of circumstances in my life dictating otherwise. I don't feel like being a jerkoff smartass right now. I still have my acidic wit and penchant for silly banter, worry not. I just don't want to be on the merry-go-round of spewing negative words any more. I want to continue to magnetize goodness and Love into my sphere. Like I have been doing.  

The Orb knows!

I was driving two weeks ago in town when I looked to my left and who did I see at the traffic light? 
My old boss- the cunty one who fired me for not over-charging her customers- yeah, her- the one I blobbed about HERE was idly sitting in her new Prius, rear bumper plastered with self-reighteous cliches. What a tool. After I recognized it was her ugly head I was staring at, you know what I felt?
No hatred, no anger, no false sense of compassion. 
And it hit me-
I am doing great- In spite of anything, anyone, or any notion I may have invested in prior which would dictate my feeling miserable. I know we all change and grow. 

I couldn't have said it better myself!

I am not a completely different person, just a more grounded, pleasant me. My blob will have to follow suit. Until there's some dumbassed crap I have to share. 
Then you'd better believe that I will rant on again!

In leu of the Love being passed around lately, Psycho Babbling Basher has bestowed me with an award! Please check her blobs out. Make sure you say hi to her, and that Violet sent you! 


Along with this tolkien of appreciation, came a few questions.
 Let's take a gander at them shall we?


0. What makes you laugh, smile or giggle? Farts- almost every time. So what?!?
  1. What are your dreams for your future? Travel for work- getting paid to write, make and teach- Art & Soul
  2. If you are to go to a cruise, where would it be and why? Penelope Cruz- caliente!
  3. How would you spend your vacation time and with whom? Mediterranean trip- with my lover
  4. If given a chance, what life would you choose? Your life now or your past? Huh? Is there any question... the past is OVER. Good riddance. Yes to NOW!
  5. Is there something that you wished before when you were young but you didn’t get it? A camel. My mom said camels were too big to live under the porch. Dang those tall camels!
  6. Have you been in a situation where you might have given up but still you chose to move on? Almost daily at one point. But I am here to weave these tales now, right?!?
  7. Is their someone in your life who has been your source of strength and inspiration? That's a tough one... I have many inspiring people in my life, and others I do not know personally, but whom I draw strength from by observing their lives. I think about great visual and musical artists and creative types too, as inspirations- often. My aunt Lorraine, Lily, Jim, and more who I know who inspire me / Julie Taymor and JayZ- who I do not know yet.
[Pardon the 0-7 instead of 1-8 above... I snafu'd the formatting, and couldn't care less @ fixing it.]

And to continue to spread the LOVE, I pass this butterfly {effect} award to:

Flip @ Hill Blocks View for cracking me up and being a wicked awesome smarty.
Lucy @ How to Hate Everything for her sass and regular tgif spinach and artichoke dip references.
Rafa's Rude Blog for it's perfectly timed inappropriateness.
Katy @ Lesbians in My Soup for her random blend of political and everyday thoughts.
Al @ Penwasser's Place for telling stories that make me happy and sad, gratefully.

* I don't care who's against me. I only care about who is with/for me. 


  1. I didn't grasp if you mentioned it, but are you at least getting paid? I remember you being in a bind. I hope that's over and I'm glad you seem to have found peace. Thanks for the award BTW!

  2. Thanks, Violet! I'll get on these right away.
    By the way, farts NEVER fail to make me laugh, too!

  3. Wish I was where you're at now Violet.


  4. Sounds like you have been very busy indeed.

    I'm kinda interested in the astrology site too ?

  5. Rafa, I am not paid...YET. There's talk about paying us all in the very near future, and as I see it, Knowing the right people never hurts. I will keep the peeps posted. And yes, I am still in a pickle, although things are shifting for the better. Thank Godzilla.
    Al, I knew you'd agree @ farts... your banner kinda gives that impression.
    Lily- You have your hands uber-full with the little man, so perhaps sprouting a few extra arms and hours in the day would be your peace!
    DCG, I will send you a link. Think you would dig it!

  6. Hey good on yah! And thanks for the love back! You are awesome.

  7. I like being happy.
    I like that you are finding you like being happy.
    I like that you like my blog.
    I like that you tell other people.
    All in all, I liked your post. A lot.
