Shannon needs...

photo courtesy of Google Image. Results of a "Shannon needs"  search.

This post is inspired by a facebook update by my favorite silver friend, Jesse Fowler.

I'm feeling playful (a sign that I'm healing!) so I wanted to play along. 

Jesse's prompt said to google your name, and the word "needs."

Jesse googled "Jesse needs" and got some very telling search results: 

Jesse needs to get out and live! 
Jesse needs your help unscrewing the inscrutable.
Jesse needs help playing with his ball.
Jesse needs to grow up.
Jesse needs to apologize to Christians before representing liberty.
Jesse needs to learn to set firm boundaries. 
Jesse needs a hug. 

Jesse will tell you, that google was right!

This is Jesse.

Here Jesse is sad because he just received a violation for having silver skin.

But Jesse challenged it.  Went to court, with legal assistance from lovely Julie, played the race card,

and won. 

If none of this makes sense to you, it's okay. 
This is a day on the playa at Burning Man, 2011.
An annual event that I've taken part in for the last nine years. 

If you've read me for an extended period of time, you're probably tired of hearing me tell my Burning Man tales, so I'll leave it at that.  But if you want to know more, I'll leave some post suggestions at the bottom. 


As I mentioned, I wanted to play, so I googled "Shannon needs" 
And this is what I got:

Shannon needs an attitude check.
Shannon needs help.
Shannon needs a DROID. 
Shannon needs shelter from the storm. 
Shannon needs your help. 
Shannon needs to take third grade english again. 
Shannon needs saving. 

MY needs are completely different from Jesse's. How does google know? Everything is spot on except for the DROID.  I had a DROID and didn't like it. Now I have an Iphone and I like my Iphone, so Shannon doesn't need a DROID. 

Want to play along? 
Please say you do! 
Google your name and the word "needs" and tell me what google says about you.

    1. Shannon you are a better judge of poetry then you give yourself credit...this is separated enough from my blog to come out clear and say it...The poem was about my x wife that I have to see on a regular basis. At times when she is well I see the woman I loved with abandon, and it kills me. But she is sick...and those times when she is not are cloying. just as dysfunctional as the people in the movie I made reference to...without the booze.

  17. Hi Shannon. I've thought of you so many times. Didn't make or have the time to check in with you to see how you're doing. This post attests to the fact that the surgery did not take your sense of humor and you're healing well. I'm so happy.

    I've been dealing with my mother, who isn't doing too well. But I hope to find time to keep up with reading blogs.

    I've been with you in spirit my friend. Be well.
