said these are the two words they think of when they think of me, and they’re two of my favorite words (don’t feel bad, other words, my favorites list is pages long. I am not so good at choosing favorites.) xoxoxo
Well, for a long time I had only a username, on my then most frequented site, and everyone called me by that name (even in public)- either because they thought it was funny or forgot/didn’t know my real name. It got to be a little embarrassing, so I started using my real name on other sites. Got here, and believe it or not, my name CARYL was already taken. So, I chose LYRAC… and, here’s a real stretch, but (although the spellings of each are off) Caryl is often considered a song (Christmas Carol, etc.) and Caryl spelled backward is Lyrac… which can be pronounced Lyric (as in a song), so I went with it. And, um, yeah… told you it was a stretch! haha!

I’m Helvetica. Classic and boring. Whatever, I’ve got clean lines.
At least I wasn’t Comic Sans. *shudder*
You are Courier
Like a type-writer style font on a computer, you go proudly against the grain. You’re not afraid to let your opinions be known, and for you, anything is better than being known as “conventional.” (I really don’t care for “Courier” but, I kind of like what it says otherwise.) ~Caryl
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - An 88-year-old woman in Colorado Springs who walks laps around a nursing home in memory of her deceased husband has hit a major milestone: 10,000 miles. Martha Michel walks laps daily around the lake at Namaste Alzheimer Center. Michel started walking the lake with her husband, Lester, who was a patient at the center. After Lester Michel’s death in 1998, Martha Michel kept up the walking in his memory.
The two were married 56 years and enjoyed hiking Colorado peaks until Lester Michel got too sick. Martha Michel keeps meticulous records of her walks around the lake, and on Saturday, she hit 10,000 miles. That’s about the same as walking across the United States three times.
I’m really not a materialistic person. Just realized that saying I want that ring probably makes me seem so. I rarely want for anything expensive… or anything at all. But, since my birthday is coming up and my friends and family have been repeatedly asking what I want, not accepting ‘nothing’ for an answer, I’ve been jokingly naming real expensive things out of the question… which lead to me discovering things that truly are appealing to me, like the ring, and the kind of expensive stuff on this incomplete Wish List:
1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVD set or all individual season boxes (to replace the ones I no longer own - to watch anytime I want - which is often!)
2. A makeover (or, at least a new cut and highlights - nothing drastically different)
3. A second pair of reading/computer glasses (the ones I have now cost me almost $400.00 and I want another nice pair, so…)
4. A new laptop. A really nice one!
5. A new car (type undecided) as long as I don’t have to pay the increased registration & insurance rates, any monthly payments & more for fuel ;)
Legends of the Fall (the barbed wire fence scene) Actually, I saw thiis with my dad first and I think I cried so hard I totally freaked him out. Then I went with a boy who said, “I can’t believe you cried again.” I think he was studying human emotions. Then I went with a BFF, probably solely, for Brad Pitt’s butt.
The most recent movie that made me cry is Marley & Me. I was expecting a dumb comedy, so I was really caught off guard by the storyline, and truly impressed with the movie… tho I don’t think I could endure it a second time. I sobbed, then cursed the writer afterward for making me cry so hard, lol.
