Word Nerd

I have been a lover of words (hence, word nerd) for as long as I can recall.  One of my favorite books is called WORDS That Make A Difference And How To Use Them In A Masterly Way.  It’s a cross between a dictionary and a thesaurus in the sense that the words are listed alphabetically … Continued

Just Cuz I'm Unpolished… Doesn't Mean I'm Ungrateful

Nobody should have to be challenged in order to express gratitude, but I suppose sometimes we all need a little push.  I’m accepting The Gratitude Challenge that has recently swept across social media channels.   I’m jumping on the bandwagon in my own unpolished way.   THE TOUGHER THE SHELL… THE HARDER TO CRACK Despite … Continued

SIX DEGREES OF UNPOLISHEDNESS

My mind is constantly spinning in circles.  Around and around and around.  It spins all over the place that often my thoughts overlap and collide into one another. Allow me to explain by example: 1.

TEEKI IS OH SO SHEEKI

INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO: QUESTION # 7

I love watching the show, Inside The Actors Studio.   One reason is because I learn about the backgrounds of critically acclaimed mega stars.   Throughout the entire duration of each interview, these actors allow me to get to know them as real people, not as the character(s) they play on the big screen, or … Continued
