Bloggers PhotoMy Bio
Hello and thank you for stopping by to check out my bio. I recently moved to Southern CA from beautiful Victor, CO-Population 450 Elevation 9696 and I'm lovin' CA. The weather is lovely and the people are divine for the most part.

My husband and I won a car on Let's Make a Deal.  If you'd like to see our clip...here it is...

I have been married to my wonderful husband, KJ, for 13 years now.  We have a great Siamese cat, Tiki (named after Tiki Barber-Retired Giants RB).  And, yes, I love football-Go Broncos!!!

I decided to type out my “official” bucket list.  Some of the items on the list are…

*Go skydiving
*Jog a mile without stopping
*Watch a live fight (boxing) in Vegas
*Perform a standup comedy act
*Go to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro
*Volunteer at a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving
*Memorize the symbols of all elements on the periodic *Pay for a random person's groceries
*Learn to belly dance
*Play one $500 hand of blackjack
*Come up with my own personal theme song
*Jump into a pool in an evening gown and stilettos

I joined poetry soup because I love poetry and I also had a goal (on my list) to win at least 3rd place in a poetry contest.  Thanks to Paula Swanson, I was able to cross that one off with a 1st Place win in her Yard Sale Contest.  I decided that since the poetrysoup gang is so warmhearted, I wanted to hang out here for good :)



If you could pick...how would you want to die? "Die a fun death" Contest


Blog Posted:11/18/2011 3:26:00 PM
Hi guys :)  If you could pick, how would you like to die?  I'm pretty sure my destiny will be that of cardiac arrest due to my family history, but hell, I think it would be 'fun' to die a 'fun' way if I could.

If I could pick, I think it'd be just after I found out I won a million dollars on a gameshow when I'm about 80.  Just imagine the press my dead self would get :)   That would be great.

In my new contest...I want you to come up with a poem in which you or a character dies a 'fun' death. Please check out the details and my poem "Careless Internet Searches" only if you want an example.
Example poem

I also wanted to mention you can use animals if you want, too.  A horse that dies just after winning the Triple Crown, a cat who had 99 lives and finally had a bad spell-IDK.  You can use humans or whatever-Please be the creative souls that you are.

But for purpose of this blog...I want to know...which 'fun' way would you want to die after living your long and happy life?

    Sidney-Thanks so much-I had never read that poem but it is excellent! Interesting the highway scenario-I guess you'd never know it was coming.

    Hey Nance similar to me . . . . as the drooling in the wheelchair begins, I want to be caught on the highway by a forty ton truck doing 90 mph which doesn't even stop

    I feel bad...you guys are taking this so seriously :) Doesn't anyone want to see your winning numbers on your lottery ticket and then keel over? Imagine the seconds of happiness you would have just before (this is AFTER you've lived a long and happy life of course).

    Well if I had a choice, is there really a 'fun' way to die, except to say to die laughing...to have a massive heart attack while laughing myself silly...the heart attack better take me, and do me good...like a good knock out punch, so I don't see it coming...better be quick and painless too...asking for a lot I know...

    There's only one fun way to go, and that is painlessly! I don't know, maybe while in surgery high on drugs and in la la land so when you go, you never know! I can't comprehend wanting to die any way other than while in one's sleep!
