#You’reProbablyWondering –  ‘#What’sWithAll of the #Hashtags?

#HasSheCompletelyLostHerMind?

#DoesSheHaveAnyIdea   #HowDifficult  it is to #ReadThisPost  #WithAllofTheseDamnedHashtags?!  #NotToMentionSlightlyAnnoying?

Actually I do.  It’s distracting, confusing and downright annoying – as already pointed out.  So why subject you to this #hashtag — *couldn’t resist* —  cray-zay-ness?

  Well,  from the mouth of a usually grounded woman – ‘Do Tell’?

… and I do …

 Last evening, while hanging out with some of my ‘Tweeple‘  during a Tweet Chat, the conversations were moving along in the somewhat controlled frenzy that I’ve come to find comfort with.  *WOW!  That is one long run-on sentence?!*

Even thought the speed of the conversations can be a bit challenging, I manage to do a decent job of keeping up.  Most folk keep their tweets short and their retweets easy to track.  And so was the case last night.  ….. until this one tweet presented with a ton of Hashtags (#) & Mentions (@) !

Talking about being totally caught off guard and completely loss!  My first question was, – ‘What is this bullsh!gg!ty here!? Quickly followed by a head-scratching –  ‘holy sugar! who in  the tarhill is this person responding to? –  and – ‘why in the h%ll would someone post this kind of tom-foolery ?!

  Come On!

Do you reeeally expect someone to be able to follow this crap?! – *Now I’m shouting at my iPad – sorry Siri*  So glad no one’s around to witness this momentary breakdown….

As confused as I was with this tweet, I stayed put – but blocked all follow-up tweets from that person.  What?  Yes. I. Blocked. Them.  One frustrating tweet was enough for me!  ‘Thank You #Twitter for the ‘blocking’ feature – *a wink & a smile* is in order’

… then I gotta thinking….

… Reading this #Hashtag stuff is maaad crazy!  Wonder what would happen if we were subjected to #HashtagSpeak on a regular!?  I can see myself totally losing it! You? Well, you know that it didn’t take me long to find the answer to that question – oh the beauty of the internet (at least this time)

And

 here I have it …. for your listening pleasure…

*drum roll Puh-leaze*

#HashtagSpeak…. in the flesh… .ala, Jimmy Fallon!!!

Like I said,  I would totally lose it!

Yoga For Wine Lovers

Hello Luv-lies,

I’ve finally added Yoga back into my workout routine.  I’m not yet sure how many days  I’ll be doing it, but I do have to say that it is sooooo good having it back into the mix.  I’ve realized that I miss the slowness of the movements, the calmness that comes with every ‘chi’ breathe and the control & focus…. oh the control & focus!

It’s funny that today is the day that I decided to go back there, mostly because I found this clever little ditty in my mailbox that I’m dying to share with you.

For all of the yogis, you’ll definitely appreciate this.  And for all of you Luv-lies thinking about delving into the world of yoga, this might just be the push that you need.

Enjoy!

Can You Believe She’s having a DOUBLE Mastectomy !!!!! 🎶 💖💖

Hello Luv-lies

This Girl is on Fire!!!!

On Tuesday, Deborah Cohan, an OB-GYN and a mother of two, went into surgery to have her breasts removed. But before the surgery, she and her medical team threw a pre-op dance party in the operating room at the University of California-San Francisco Medical Center at Mount Zion.

The six-minute video, features Cohan and her surgical team getting jiggy with it to Super Diva – Beyoncé’s hit single “Get Me Bodied.”  The flash mob OR dance was the brainchild of Cohan. and first appeared on CaringBridge, a site that connects friends and family together during a health event. On the site, Cohan created a page called Deborah’s Healing Journey, where she detailed her flash mob plans.

On her CaringBridge page, Cohan wrote – “My fantasy is for you to play the song … and dance wherever you happen to be.” She requested friends and family to send photos and videos of themselves dancing to the song.

“I have visions of a healing video montage. Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?”

What an AWESOME Woman!!

So Luv-lies,

What awesomeness have you witnessed today?

What’s In Your Food?

Good Morning Luv-lies,

I love gadgets!!   Show me an electronic gadget, I’ll show you a gal that’s in e-heaven!!!

Kitchen gadgets, office gadgets, clothing gadgets…. it just doesn’t matter.  If it’s a gadget, I’m sold.

New on my gadget list of  ‘I Want That’ is this baby pictured below.

3020813-inline-tellspec-together

3020813-slide-tellspec-with-keychain

It’s handle is the ‘Tellspec’ and its claim to fame is that with a wave of the hand, it can calculate all the calories,  ingredients, chemicals, and allergens in all types of food.

WOW” !!!  Imagine that!

The concept is the brainchild of a the young daughter of an entrepreneur and math professor, who was plagued by food allergies.   The story  is that one evening, while having dinner, the youngster picked up a flash drive and proposed a device that, when pointed at food would be able to calculate it’s content.  *From the minds of Babes*

3020813-slide-tellspec4

Here’s the video, to fill you in on the details.  I must warn you, though, there is a short segment that gets very scientific.

Well Luv-lies, if you’re anything like me, right now you are the edge of your seat waiting, breathlessly, for me to tell you where you can be one of the first to get your hands on one of these luv-vah-lies!  Here’s where I break it to you gently….

…. this product, is not yet for sale.  Actually, the two inventors are in the process of working out the kinks, raising funds, and talking with optical companies who might be interested in manufacturing this little gem.

Until then, I’ll stand in line with you guys and hope that it will be available soon –  in pink 🙂

What gadget can you not live without  – real and/or imagined?  *wink*

8 stages of marathon running… Just in Time for the NYC Marathon

Good Morning Luv-lies,

Well, today is the day that thousands – according to the talk in the running community- 47,000 runners have been eagerly awaiting….. The New York City Marathon!!! 

Cancelled last year due to , what is now referred to as ‘Super Storm Sandy, I’m sure that that the energy among the runners there is palpable!  

I’ll be watching the race along with all of you. 

As a show of support, I’ve found this light-hearted video, as a tribute to these everyday Heroes 

 

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this fun-filled look of what it must be like – at least for some – in the pursuit of this much applauded 26.1 miles of victory 🙂

 

So Luv-lies,

What will you be doing on this NYC Marathon Sunday?

#Movember … What’s this All About?

20131106-153845.jpgHey Luv-lies,

Good Morning to you all.

I am sooooo excited about this being the month of November!  Yes, yes.  I know – It’s #NaBlogPoMo  Month!!  Don’t get me wrong, I am super stoked about that…

Whaaaat!?  … being able to hob-nob with all of the fabulousness in one divine blogosphere community….  can you say

 ‘FAB – U- LOUSSSSS‘?!

 Well it seems that November is the chosen month for many a celebration.  I think that I know which one is coming to mind, right about now.  But. No, No.  It’s not Thanksgiving (I’ll have a post about this holiday for Culinary Divahs and Food Lovers very soon).

Then ‘What can it be?’ you ask  *gently scratching one’s head with a well-manicured nail*

This month is officially,

MOVEMBERRRRRRR!

What? Oh What? is this thing called Movember?

In the words of one NYC journalist,  simply put, Movember is a fundraising initiative where ….

“….. thousands of men around the world said goodbye to their clean-shaven upper lips and braced themselves for awkward stubble. Movember, a global initiative that has grow mustaches during November to raise awareness and money for men’s health, is now officially under way….”

It’s been several years since the birth of this initiative (founded by an Australian gentleman),  Movember  has become an official charity with global reach.  The vision is to have an impact on men’s health that rivals that of breast cancer awareness.

There are Three Basic Rules:

1~    Start on November 1st clean shaven

2~   Grow  your ‘Mo’  (Australian for ‘moustache’) for 30 days

3~     Raise Awareness and funds for Men’s Health

It’s that simple…

Need the backstory?

Check out this video….

 Through the power of the Mo, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.

So Luv-lies,

Will you ‘Mo’ this month?

I Can Eat this Right off of the Canvas…

I haven’t been able to jump on the ‘Nutrella’ bandwagon… can’t get past the hazelnut flavor…
But this demonstration of a drawing of a jar of this very popular bread spread is realistic enough to eat from the canvas!

What’s #261 Got to do with the Boston Marathon?

 

running = quality time

Twenty-four hours from now, I  will be joining loads of fans/viewers that will be watching the coveted Boston Marathon 2013.  From its humble beginnings, the Boston Marathon has become one, of just a few races,  that are the barometer of elite marathon races.  This is a race that welcomes everyone from the first-time marathoner to the most elite runners in the world.

   With so much diversity in the level of runner who enters this much lauded race, it’s hard to imagine that there was a time (during its humble beginnings) that the marathon was a ‘Men’s Only’ race.

Women runners can thank Katherine Switzer for being able to participate in this great race!!
