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 :)



Talkin' Tech. New Contest-I hope you'll consider entering :)


Blog Posted:7/11/2011 8:41:00 PM

Please enter my new contest!!!

I need some cheering up since the unexpected death of my good pal, Coach D.  I am so thankful for all of you who expressed well wishes to me about his passing.  He was such a fun guy and he wouldn’t want me to sit around being sad…so I decided to launch this contest in his honor and become “cheered up” by the gang at PS . 

Ok, I would like you to write a funny/light/humorous poem on the theme of technology.  It can be any form, as long as it is light and funny.  Please note that you can write about any technology-related topic and you are not limited to the ones I have suggested.  Here are just some ideas to get you thinking…

1. How technology has evolved

2. The feud between Microsoft/Apple

3. Grandma using a cell phone for the first time

4. When grandpa learned to text

5. How being a “nerd” or “geek” has become “cool” in recent years

6. The movie Pirates of Silicon Valley or The Social Network

7. How cool/advanced cell phones/gadgets are now

8. Hackers

9. How we all wish we would have bought Apple (symbol AAPL), Google (GOOG) or Netflix (NFLX) stock when the IPO came out J If you don’t know about stocks or even what IPO stands for, you can still write about when grandpa learned to text J

10. Steve Jobs and his famous black shirt and jeans (he’s just like one of us, you know! ), Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Wozniak, Sean Parker or any famous tech. guy.  If you don’t know who these guys are, you can still write about Grandma using a cell phone J

All you have to do is make it light and funny.  I appreciate your support in my first contest!!!

    Great topic, Natalie! I'll have to give this some thought. Very sorry to hear about Coach's death. Humor is a good way to lift your spirits when you're grieving. Best wishes to all the contestants! Love, Carolyn
