***** FOR THOSE WANTING TO KNOW THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG: THERE ISN’T ONE BESIDES GIVING ME SOMEWHERE TO BLATHER ON ABOUT STUFF THAT MAKES ME HAPPY OR ANNOYS THE CRAP OUT OF ME. DON’T BOTHER LOOKING FOR A FOCUS. (Suze has no focus)*****
DISCLAIMER: I just want it to go on the record that I will take the devil’s advocate position on EVERYTHING just to annoy and or educate people. NO ONE has a clue whether I am democrat, republican, independent or nothing at all; nor will they be able to tell with any confidence that I am Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindi or a worshipper of Ba’al! I like intelligent, non-confrontational (occasional confrontation is actually good for the heart ya know) discussions on politics, religion, sexual orientation, education, but never sports (sorry I just can’t go somewhere where I am clueless!) I am an equal opportunity basher of anything that is socially unacceptable to talk about. put that in your pipes and smoke it! And if you are somehow offended? good, maybe it will make you think.
Now, all about ME as that is the really important stuff. This is me!
I was born and raised in Virginia, have visited almost every state in the Union, and have lived in about fifteen of those states at various times in my life. I was “stuck” in Texas for almost twenty years and remember fondly one year of those twenty.
I also claim no political party, but I might be (in another blogger’s words) a “flaming liberal and damned proud of it!
I have been married forever to Poor George. He is only called “poor” because the Poor man has been married to me for donkey’s years. We live in Enid, Oklahoma and I have to quietly admit it is the very best place on the entire planet to live!
I have an incredibly warped sense of humor, get irritated by maroons (we shall be polite and not call them morons), love to travel to foreign countries and wander around my new home state of Oklahoma. I especially like going to out of the way or odd places so I can whing on about them in the blog.
I tend to babble in here, hate to write in “proper English” even though I am quite good at it, love to annoy people, or create stupid Limericks.
Every now and then I will actually write something erudite and valuable but don’t hold your breath waiting for those. They are few and far between.
I am NOT computer literate so I tend to blog about the idiot things I do to my ‘puter………..and I guess my ultimate goal with this ridiculous writing is to make people (most especially my two sons) smile..or even laugh out loud. So welcome to Suziland,, the place where my mind wanders with words.
Yes, I used to be model thin and gorgeous, but I woke up……….sigh
