All Human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Who I am...

I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a survivor.
My family has made me who I am...my past family with past hurts...my current family with current joy.
Family is something you are born into and cannot choose,
family is also what you choose it to be once you are old enough to start anew...

Freak Out Fridays - THIS STUPID PINEAPPLE!!!

I am being taken over by THIS STUPID PINEAPPLE blog fest hosted by Briane Pagel at Thinking the Lions!  How, exactly, does one get the infectiousness of this stupid pineapple out of one's brain?  I've dreamt about it, ate over it, screamed and cried regarding this stupid pineapple.  It is all consuming, but at the same time; I like it!  It tastes so sweet and delicious in my mind; it has become a bit like sweet laudanum and I do not want to let it go.

Today is the day I must exorcise my demon and put this stupid pineapple post out for the world to see; and yet, all I can do is sit in my comfy home and wish I didn't have to let it go.  I want to continue savoring this plump, juicy goodness...forever! ;)

So here is my heart and soul, put into words - let all who read this know; I love this stupid pineapple!

This stupid pineapple was given to me
In a manner that made me think of trees.
I think about it all the time
I don't think I can become a mime.
I love its succulent flavor
and yet it does me no favors.
I weep to think that it will go
for where it will end up, I cannot begin to know.
I pray for the time when this stupid pineapple will come back.
I want so much to remove it, like a tack.
And yet, it is all consumingly sad
to think that the world will think me mad.
I suck this stupid pineapple into my soul
never caring that I'm losing control.
Please help me get this out of my brain
or else I might go insane!

So my Friday Freakout is this: I'm participating in a blog fest and I don't know if I should put this much pressure on myself because I am a strange bird that obsesses over EVERYTHING!  Shit, I feel so much better.  Getting this out there, well, it did help. 

Thanks for reading!


  1. I hope you've been able to purge yourself of this pesky pineapple, a celebrated hand grenade with eyes.

    1. I ate pineapple everyday this week for inspiration! I think I will not look at another pineapple for a long time! ;)

    1. No! No! This stupid pineapple MUST stay away!

  3. I think you are about one step away from a Stupid Pineapple Restraining order.

    And you are one step away from Stupid Pineapple erotica. So, nicely done! I'll expect that soon we'll see a Youtube video of you singing this with a backup band. Grumpy Bulldog plays a mean washtub bass, I heard.

    You're also the first Stupid Pineapple poem, which will earn you extra points, too.

    1. I don't do anything half-assed! I become obsessive with everything, for good or bad. I use to lead a punk/ska band and then moved to more of a 70's rock type band, so I could put this to music...dammit! Now you've given me another thing to obsess over!! Curse you, Briane Pagel! Curse you!

  4. Think you win for using the words the most.

    1. I just did that to be facetious, I don't believe I get extra points for that.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad my humor showed. My husband thinks it was scary. He didn't get the joke! ;)

  6. Great poem. Who knew you could say so much about a stupid pineapple.

  7. Hey, you won!


  8. This pineapple blogfest sounds funny :) I'll check it out. I'm a new follower over from Cassie and Angies Bloghop :)
