Bio
6 Word Bio: RUDELY AWOKEN-- MOSTLY OUTSPOKEN-- REMAINING UNBROKEN ****************************************** My life would shock most people. It is a little known fact that there are quite a number of those on the fringes who may not ever see relief. I am that one you never met, in that we are kept separate by way of societal demands that the poor remain silent, biddable, childlike nonentities without a say as to our care or how it's to be provided. ****************************************** I tend to view things as a selfdisicplined person without advantages. If this won't set with some, then I guess they are not ready to remember who we are as one entity, governed by everyone inclusively. I will not cease to point out any diseased thinking I run across here in the USA. ****************************************** I stand in defense of the weakened, the brutally treated, the denied, the ones for whom life's trial can be too much. I stand with my thought, even when my legs are weakened, my stride not strong. ****************************************** Walk with me on this journey, now, wherein we may ask each other: How much is the value of one person affected by what is generally assumed about them? **** See me also at THE POOR WOMAN'S RETROACTIVE DIARY, (go to LINKS below, if you're interested) a commentary on the level of care I was allowed throughout my time seeking help.

UPDATE-ala Ric's karma: FREE Avatar "Costuming"

Rate: 12 Flag
 
 
Ric Tresa's columns have inspired yours truly to offer, for the first time, this unique service.
 
Though I am no Rembrandt, no Judy Chicago, and certainly did not complete a degree in this subject, I do fancy myself not bad in the world of art. 
 
***FOR THE FIRST 5 PEOPLE ONLY***
 
(To start--I may not have enough time for more than that) 
 
How would you or your avatar like to look this Halloween?

 
Granted, we have limitations to consider, among them how much detail our avatars' size allows for. And I can see where some of the avatars posted wouldn't lend themselves well to such a project. However, where there's a will, there's a way.
 
So, be thinking about it. You may wish to consider what would work better first. 
 
Please let me know what you think of this new idea.
 
Peace, all!
 
 
 
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MEN????
 
OKAY, I'LL LEAVE OUR LIST UNFINISHED BY ADDING A 6TH POSITION
FOR
THE FIRST MAN TO JOIN OUR GROUP.
 
OKAY, GUYS, COME ONOUT OF THE WOODWORK AND LET US HEAR FROM YOU SOON!!!

Hope my account editing will update soon so you can see what my avatar's wearing today!!!
LOL
this is quite grand.. every day is Halloween for me..:)
I vant to be a vampire hahaha
rated with ghoolish hugs
Linda: LOL!!!Yes, but do you vant me to vamp it for ya?
I want to be a warrior...wait, too show off-y? Female Andy Rooney would be so unpleasant to look at...
I think I will stay myself this year. Last year I went as Marilyn Monroe and some guy that went as John Kennedy is still harrasing me. Thanks PW~
Ooooh, I love this!!!!! I want to be Queen! ~r
Nikki: LOL! Somehow, I don't think I can manage to do the Andy Rooney thing without making you look like a drag queen in drag (no, that's not a typo). But a warrior princess/queen--sounds fun!!! Let me know what you decide.

scanman: *chortle* *snicker*You could always go as a chicken McNugget. I mean, we are what we eat.
Joan: I'll take that as a definite yes. Queen......hmmmm.
We'll PM a little and see what we can come up with in detail for you.

This is fun!
Julie: Honey (and I mean that here literally), how are we to dress you?
Could be a sticky problem.
So far, we have
1.)Linda--Vaming it up!
2.)Nikki--"Warrior!Warrior!"
3.)Joan--"I want to be Queen"
4.)hyblean-julie (altho' I need some help from her on this )
OOPS! My bad!

Linda's should read "Vamping it up."

*ahem*
hmm, I dunno, what do you suggest?
julie: Got an alternate avatar? I need something I can form a look upon. Your honey pot looks sweet (it is one of my favorites, so don't get me wrong here), but I doubt I can make it look like anything else without creating a mess.
Julie: Unless you'd like me to dress your avatar as being a cauldron full of magical brew?????
You look so elegant, Poor Woman - I haven't read your post yet, but I was surprised by your new look. It becomes you well. You always looked elegant but this is a dressed up version. Wow! ~R
Okay, # 5 ? But I will leave it upto you?
@Fusun, you are sooo queenly. I am happy to hand over the scepter.
OUR AMENDED LIST IS AS FOLLOWS:
1.) Linda---"I vant to be a vampire"
2.)Nikki--"Warrior!Warrior!"
3.)Joan---"I want to be Queen."
4.)julie-hyblaean--(to be announced later)
5.) FusunA: "But I will leave it up to you?"
Joan: What a nice gesture! If she accepts, have you chosen your alternate design?
Fusun: If only I always looked so put together in the real world!
C'MON, MEN!!!
STEP UP TO THE PLATE!!!!

(say, now there's one idea--to go as one's sports hero)
(see? see? I'm savvy to the ways of the males of our species)
I will try to get a new pic up today :)
but I like the cauldron idea! which would you prefer?
h-Julie: Your choice. But it might be truly unique to be the only cauldron at the ball, so to speak.
:)
Still waiting for the first guy to take me up on this unique offer........
@ Joan - No, no dear friend, I don't want to take away anything that was already asked for. You are queenly yourself, take back your scepter. I can change my avatar if need be.

Oh, Congratulations for the cover & EP. I had a strong feeling we'd be enjoying it there tooday.
witches brew it is!! Thanks Poor Woman :D
Witch's brew it is, then!!!
:D
Darn, I'm too late. And I was going to say RuPaul! Darn!

Lezlie
My twin, you always did enjoy dressing up! ;)
Lezlie: PW just stepped out for a moment, so I'm here in her stead.

It's too bad you weren't here earlier on. However, I wonder if that might have been a bit too ambitious for PW, altho' please don't tell her I said so.
I guess maybe next year?
Well, I think you might be underestimating PW, but now worries. I will think of an even better one for next year!

Lezlie
Lezlie: More than enough time, then! ;)
I'm already wearing a mask, PW. But thanks for the invitation.
Leon: Bummer! You would have been my first choice. Are you sure??????
Leon: I could see you as a Roman senator or Julius Caesar!
I'm a man.
I have MUCH more important things to do, like trying to make this little white ball go down that hole over there.
Also, I have my reputation to consider.
Kim: My goodness! And a baseball cap or a fireman's uniform or a Native War Chief or a famous macho man--none of these things would bear "wearing" on screen for even a day????
Not even Maori tattoos? But they're so macho!
Wait, post this in the middle of the school day when I can't possibly access it???????????????????
Oh, the in humanity!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wanted Marie Antoinette.
so pissed I forgot to rate.
I do like your costume, I must confess.
OMG! Vanessa MUST be Marie Antoinette! It is perfect!
I will make an exception in Vanessa's case because it's not her fault.
Well, mostly. But more than that, I'd consider it an honor to take on such an ambitious project.

Besides, gotta love the costumes from that period! ;)
OK you won me - but only because it's you ...
I really, really, wanna be a Pirate.
i cede ground to others but secretly, I want to be a warrior queen. I have no idea what that means but it sounds good. No chunky armor, though; I'm not going after a Joan of Arc kind of thing.
I'm going to dye my fur black as go as, well, a black cat!! :D
Kate and Tink:
Sorry, guys! You missed the last boat.

MY LATEST POST SHOWS OUR FINAL LIST.
ANY CHANGES WILL HAVE TO BE MADE PRIVATELY.
THANKS, ALL!
damn! late to the party again. damn job...
