No Worries!

Truth is the Internet is a heck of a resource if you got time on your hands. You can find just about anything (even if it doesn't make sense). There are also bunches of tools and other resources out there. You ask where this post is going? I'll get there soon enough, but first, a warning - don't ever search online for "bukkake" and "snowblowing". If you do, don't say I didn't warn you; ignorance is sometimes bliss.

Back to business. I got an e-mail regarding some sort of shooting practice at Puerto de Sans Souci. And it hit me - "Sans Souci" like "Sans Serif". Sans serif is a term used to describe fonts like Arial, which, unlike Times New Roman, don't have a little peak in its design (notice the capital T has peaks on its sides). Sans is French for without, Serif, well i didn't look it up*.

So what does the word "souci" mean? Concern. Among its synonyms** are: worry, heebie-jeebies (hee hee), uneasiness, fuss, fretfulness, etc. The combination really makes you think, huh?

Sans souci, without concern, no fuss, spare the heebie-jeebies, zero stress - I could go on and on. These two words, which I figure were not picked at random, represent the spirit of the Dominican Republic in the good way. Allow me to illustrate: we have kickass beaches, cool mountains, and a lot of ecotourism locales, good food, good drinks and good people.

Anyway, am going off topic. I'll stop now. In conclusion, I had never given it much thought and definitely never looked it up, but now, as my old spanish teacher at school used to say "puedes comer". I can eat because I learned something new. Come to think of it, this gives a new meaning to being the all-knowing (it explains a lot). But as aussies put it, NO WORRIES MATE!!!

X-TRA CREDIT: Google: "Sans Souci"


* (I ended up looking for it anyway)Serif: n., a fine line finishing off the main strokes of a letter, as at the top and bottom of M. (www.dictionary.com)

**worry, all-overs, angst, ants, apprehension, botheration, butterflies, cabin fever, care, cold sweat, concern, creeps, disquiet, disquietude, distress, doubt, downer, drag, dread, fidgets, flap, foreboding, fretfulness, fuss, goose bumps, heebie-jeebies, jitters, jumps, misery, misgiving, mistrust, nail-biter, needles, nervousness, panic, restlessness, shakes, shivers, solicitude, suffering, suspense, sweat, trouble, uncertainty, unease, uneasiness, watchfulness, willies, worriment.

So if I already ate, does it mean that i knew that before? HECK NO! Maybe webbrowsing has benefits as water does.

I'm glad to know that there are other perverts (beside myself) that actually know what bukkake and snowblowing is. Kudos.

Who's ever interested in more stuff and look up Dirty Sanchez.... unless you already knew it.

oye... no es obligado leerlo. Si te parece largo, estoy seguro que hay otros blogs por ahí que te gustarían más. Siento mucho que no seas de mi "mercado meta", pero no se puede ganar todo!

Aún así, gracias por tu visita y tu opinión.
