As this is my “New Thing” I am doing, I thought I would do Number 2 today. I did my first one the 16th of June for Dave @
I have met so many remarkable people here in my 6 months since I really started blogging, so I decided to dedicate a blog to people I class as close friends and people I trust, Dave was the 1st, now I welcome you to my next Great Bloggers/Friends
I am going to do one of these every few days and it will take me 5 months as things stand to run out of Friends to blog about. My thinking is, they are a great people, and I urge you all to go and follow Dave above who I did on my first series of these, I also ask you PLEASE go and follow my next friend
is a true friend, we hit it off almost right away, I met her through an Award I got and from the start she had me in stitches of laughter with her blogs.
Mer is a brilliant woman. She suffers from the same thing I do, Chronic Pain but maybe with another name. But reading her blogs you would not think so. She is one of the bravest women I have met online on any social networking area, and we have spoken on Face book and we have brilliant fun. To say she has be almost falling off my chair is an understatement. Mer is without doubt the funniest bloggers I know on Word Press.
I do these friends blogs so people who may not know Mer will go and look at her blog, same as did with Dave, because part of being on Word Press is to meet new friends and interact in a way where we all know friendship is there and it always will be there. Mer suffers pain as I said, but the brave way she gets past it and the love and caring side she shows to her friends, me included on Word Press is what it is all about. She really is a cute girl who will help and offer her caring nature if she thinks you need it, in my time here, Mer I need you to know you have been there for me many times, and I thank you for that.

So Mer’s blog, it is funny, I will give you all a few blogs Mer has done. Mer does Taboo blogs, she blogs about things others only think about and they are funny, interesting and informative all at the same time. But one thing you need to know is she is great fun. She is married with a Daughter and is a great person
Here is a blog Mer done in her Taboo style, where she mentions me.
Taboo Topic #12: Showing Emotions
posted in anxiety, chronic pain, depression, emotions, feelings, general, life, musings,random, taboo, thoughts by merbear74
After keeping up a wonderful front, last night I lost my battle with my emotions.
Although I am no longer wishing death upon myself, I still feel like an egg that could crack at any moment. I absolutely hate any kind of stress. Like Shaun posted yesterday, I wanted to be left the feck alone. ( We have much in common, he and I.)
My body hurt, I was so very tired, feeling as though my skin was stretched beyond it’s limits. Then, my mom called. My daughter started doing her teenage angst routine. My husband had just gotten snippy with me. It was all too much. Sensory overload.
I told my mom I couldn’t talk now. I grabbed a couple of items, and started the long trek up the stairs to my room, where I could shed my tears in peace. I hate to cry in front of anyone. Especially since I tend to drip snot.
I am an emotional human. I have written about this before.
Why is it such a taboo thing to show ones emotions? Why is it frowned upon? Why can’t we just bust out the waterworks in front of people, especially our loved ones? What is the big fucking deal?
People say, “Be tough. Suck it up. No one likes a cry baby.”
No offence, but I call bullshit on this.
Life hurts. Bad things happen to good people. I believe that God, in his infinite wisdom, gave us the ability to weep. I feel bad for the people who can’t let these natural emotions, that well up inside of us, flow free.
What are your thoughts or feelings on the topic? Do you find yourself repressing your natural emotions?
As you can see, Mer talks about Taboo topics, not all the time, and she does it in a way where she created a lot of debate and has fun with it. Mer is one of the most popular people I know on here and I have never heard anyone ever say a bad word against her, she is loved by all, me included, I love her as a friend. She is a brilliant friend. Another blog I would like to share is this one here. Mer is a HUGE Beatles fan and is actually going to see Paul McCartney before Christmas this year, and I was so pleased for her for getting the chance to see a hero she looks up to. This is a brilliant blog here about her love of ex English band, The Beatles

My Beatles wall. Those are legit copies of Abbey Road and Rubber Soul, in album frames.
My Beatles glasses. Never used. Dusty as hell, though.
My beloved Beatles albums.
My second Beatles wall, in my bedroom., where I dream of #9′s.
My car keys.
Per Kim’s request. Jammie pants.
Not photographed are various T-shirt’s, my hoodie, books, a few mismatched fab items, and two Beatles calender’s.
Sorry about the blur, I am a shitty photographer, and my camera is ancient.
As you can see the passion and also fun again in this blog. She is a massive fan of The Beatles and when she told me she had tickets to see Paul McCartney I almost could have cried for her, happy tears you understand, as I know from speaking to her what this means to her, this is her dreams coming true, so I could not be happier for her. As you can see, she is thrilled.
To finish here, I NEED to share a blog that touched my heart and that of many others, as I said, Mer has a big heart and she cares, and in this blog here she talks of her love for her Husband Tom. Again she manages to do a really nice loving blog by adding some fun to the blog, this is a gift being able to do this, and this is why she is so popular, this is the blog below. She tells us all why she loves her man, and it is beautiful as it is amazing to read things like this
Why I love my husband
posted in B4peace, funny, general, humor, life, lists, love, marriage, musings, relationships,romance, thoughts, wedding by merbear74
When I first met Tom, he intimidated me because he looked so tough.
A big handsome guy who had piercings all over. He was in a death metal band. Not my usual cup of tea.
What caught me by surprise was how kind his sparkly blue eyes were, plus a smile that could melt your heart.
We have almost 11 years of history together. Private jokes, winks, kisses, hugs and plenty of fights.
We have pulled each other up, made each other laugh, and made each other cry.
We were best friends first. He kept coming back. I let him.
We are not perfect, but perfect for each other.
We do not always see eye to eye. We are both stubborn.
We share the same fucked up sense of humor.
He thinks it is cute when I talk to squirrels.
My mom loves him.
He took on an abused single mother and a 5 year old little girl.
He took our wedding vows seriously, especially the part about in sickness and in health.
For richer and poorer, as well.
He brings me coffee every morning.
He forgives me when I act like an asshole.
I forgive him when he acts like a douche bag.
He cries when I am in pain.
He doesn’t judge me when I smoke a bowl.
We are still attracted to each other after all this time.
He doesn’t care that I have a washboard ass.
He is the only human who will touch my gnarly feet.
He has proven to me numerous times that he loves me.
I promise to prove it to him for the rest of our lives.
So this is the Mer we all love and care for. She has so many close friends, but when you have a personality like Mer does it is very hard not to like her. I am a great believer that Men and Woman can say “I love you as a friend” and I know with Mer as well as many other woman I know on Word Press, I know I can say “I love you as a friend” without the meaning being lost. She is an amazing girl and I ask PLEASE you all go and follow Mer, she is very funny, cute, honest, deep in terms of her thinking, while making it fun and a brilliant friend.
I decided to do these blogs for good reason, and that reason was to show my friends on Word Press to other people. So please, like Dave at the top of the blog here, I ask again, please go and Visit Mer and follow her, I will tell you now you will not hate yourself for following Mer, if you want a true friend, an honest friend and someone what will be there to talk to should you be down and also lift you with her amazing humour, Mer is the person to do this.
Mer, I love you as a friend, you amaze me with your bravery in your writing and your love of life and the way you deal with your pain and do with fun. Shaun x
I leave you with a fitting song to go with this blog x
