Dedicated to Suzanne

As many of you may know, Suzanne is dealing with some very serious health issues right now. I wanted to dedicate this post to her and say how lucky we all are for knowing her. She is a beautiful soul who genuinely cares about all she meets.

Suzanne, my deepest wish for you is that you experience the moment of now, no matter what you are going through, because that is where pure joy exists.

Blessings and Peace to you!

Dearest Suzanne, I agree with RC--we are so very lucky to know you!!!

lots of love,

Random Chick,
A wonderful gesture for Suzanne!:)
I couldn't agree with you more.

You rascal, you made me cry you know. And then I read Leah's comment and cried harder, and then saw the name Kookaburra and started to laugh. Mark, how in the hell am I ever going to take that name seriously? Every time I see it I start laughing. I'm still laughing. Maybe that's why you had to change your name, to bring laughter to the world! Especially to my little part of it. Thank you!

Random, this is so appreciated and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. The fact you would make the effort when I know your life is so beyond busy and you've been ill yourself means the world to me because I matter (of course I'm kidding about the "I matter" part! (I sound as narcissistic as Cher!)), and because I think more responsibility should be heaped on women! High five chiclettes!!

What is your real name? You're makin' me nutz! I can't call you Random forever. We should hold a contest at the Cafe to pick your name. The one who picks the right name or comes closest wins a prize. A real one, not a virtual one. (Where the hell's Robyn, she can craft anything, and Leah can knit like nobodies business, oh, and I can paint, and I'm sure everyone has a talent (we all know what I.V.'s is (good lord!)...we'll figure out something.) Yup, let's hold a contest. The First Annual Guess A Name Till You Drop Contest. Even if it's not your name, if we all agree, then it will become your official Blogger Land name. When I'm feeling a wee bit better, I will start the wheels in motion. You might want to run for the hills. But if someone guesses your "real" name, you have to fess up. Scouts honor. Have you ever been a scout? No, me either.

I love you to death. You're such a wonderful friend and when I get back down to San Francisco we'll have a blast. Thank you for your friendship and your generosity. You're a gem. You made my heart sing today.

And Leah, God you know I love you. I love you so much I think I should be adopted into your family and have partial ownership of the cottage on the lake in the Adirondacks. Wadayathink? Deal? I'll even bring my own Adirondack chair. Hedgehog can help me paint it pink and we'll plant ferns all around it.

Kooka, Birthday Boy, I love you. You know that. Thank you for your continued support and love. Honey, what am I going to do with that name? I'm laughing. I don't know why it makes me laugh, but it does. I love it!

Thank you one and all. You're the greatest friends a gal could have.

Dear, Dear, Suzanne:

Okay, okay! I'll tell ya my real name but you have to SWEAR never to put it on my blog!! It's Dana. Although, I like Random Chick better. I should get my name officially changed. I also kinda like "Princess Consuela Bananahammack" which is from the Friends episode where Phoebe changes her name. After she changes her name to that crazy one, her boyfriend changes his name to "Crap Bag." OMG! It's soooo funny!!! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0583543/plotsummary

Wouldn't that be a kick? Someone asks you, "What's your name?" And you answer: "Oh, it's Princes Consuela Bananahammack a.k.a. Random Chick." LOL!

I'm glad I helped make your day. You deserve it!!! And YES! Let me know when you're in the SF Bay Area and we'll go drinking!!! Or whatever.

Muwahhh! That's big kiss for ya! My positive prayers and thoughts are shooting at ya! Well, not actually shooting. That sounds like it would hurt. Maybe they're flying. Or floating. Which do you prefer??


Cecile said...

Dear Princess Consuela,
I think this post is so sweet. It is just the perfect medicine that our Sticky Glue A.k.A Suzanne needs to keep holding us together.

Princess is right you know, you are such a wonderful friend, full of such beauty and color. You enrich our lives, and we are all hoping and praying for you. You are always in our thoughts, and we do care for you dear friend. You DO MATTER. A LOT! Don't EVER forget that. YOu matter to so many both humans and animals. Keep us informed and take care of yourself.

Eskimo kisses to ya,

Cece, do you think we can get Dana off the disco ball? I don't think so. She's a wild woman. Knew her name had to begin with a D. Just knew it. I.V., we need a little help here. Perhaps he can splash her with his flask and she'll slip off. Other than that, I don't think she's commin' down.

You two kill me. I'm laughing! I'm so easy to entertain. Really. No, really. Ask my family. It's barely an effort! Make me laugh, it's over. I love you both. Thank for making my day. I needed this. I haven't been able to get to the doctor's office because my sinuses are behaving horribly, so this mattered. As soon as I know anything I will enlighten you. If someone would just shoot my head off my shoulders I'd probably be okay. Hunter? You out there? Give it your best shot baby! I'll stand still.


MJ said...

I followed the reflection from the disco ball and found my way to the Café.
