    I Have To..

    i always like to let people know that i am different and don't cower away from it. It feels like i am being suppressed if i dont get to express myself, people have to accept me for who i am. I am not ashamed of myself!

    Not Quite There Yet :)

    When I saw The Family Stone (this was where I heard the quote), and Luke Wilson tells SJP that she doesn't fly herFreak Flag, I was like, wow. Maybe that's my problem. It kind of hit me like a ton of bricks. I am so tightly wound. I censor myself for fear of looking stupid or...

    Run My Freak Flag Up the Pole

    I let my freak flag fly a long time ago. It is just too difficult trying to keep track of what I can tell who and what I can do where.

    Why Aren’t Roads Named After Body Parts?

     “Take a left onto Vaginal Way. At the second stop sign turn right onto Esophagus Parkway.”    Yup if I was in charge of naming roads and streets they would be named after organs. By the way  I love cougars.

    I Hereby Denounce Gender

    This moment forward I slay the beast named gender. I will no longer be labeled such a thing. No more waxing of my legs. No more heels on casual days. No more blouses or tight pants! I like curse words, distressed tees, scars, sneakers, and hair that is over due for a wash...

    Freaky Deaky

    I am a freak. At least according to people I know. I am not ashamed. Why should I be? It's totally normal to me to be this way. I see nothing wrong with being different. I think it's a good thing to be honest. Let your freak flag fly people!!!

    Yes, I Still Do

    This term comes from the Crosby. Stills, Nash and Young song "Almost Cut My Hair". I'm in my fifties, and I still have a full beard, mustache, and long hair that I pull back into a tail. I may have gotten old, but THAT hasn't! (-;

    Forever And Always

    I always let my freak flag fly.  When a person first meets me, I'm generally all introverted and not much of a sharer, nevertheless, a few minutes later all hell breaks loose, for I give away the family secrets for free.  Whether its my fascination with Joan Crawford or...
