I am Knomen

While writing a comment on Dash Deringer site, a beautiful artist in his own write, and quite handsome to look at...actually off the subject I could see just having a blog about him would fascinate me...but while leaving a comment on his blog, my word verification was 'Nomen'.

I looked it up in the dictionary and online...here is what I found...this fascinated me and gave me an idea...I am adding a 'K' and making it 'Knomen'.

Nomanhttp://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/noman - Not a person; Not a human; Not belonging to or created by mankind

Metrosexual
is a neologism of the 2000s generally applied to heterosexual men with a strong concern for their appearance, and/or whose lifestyles display attributes stereotypically attributed to gay men.

There have been a few 'coined' phrases in the past eight years that define-

I am married to a Metro-Sexual...a man who is not gay, but grooms himself as if he were, but I can say that mine loves a woman's body to the maximum capacity...when I get my Harley one day, he will be my bitch on the back, because he likes he grandpa Mercedes Benz parked out front.

I grew up and was not a tomboy, because I was not into sports,did not climb trees (will now),could not hit a softball or catch one for the life of me...but I liked to hang with the pretty girls with my long hair, jeans and tee shirts, and hated make-up (lipstick came much later)...I always have that on hand, because my grandmother always had hers on and said you should never leave the house without it on.Combing my hair more than required was and still is today a pain in the ass, morning and before bedtime is enough.

I went to beauty school because during college I was robbed at gun point, and was fru-fru for a VERY short period, got more attention from men than I cared, but I survived without over partying repercussions. There is one thing that separates me from many women I meet today, I like cigars and scotch, I am not afraid to be passionate, and when I look into a mirror it is to examine myself, my character.

Since then having been married, children, lots of work and creativity...have decided I have never fit into any public persona of what a 'woman' is...so, I am creating a category for myself...Knomen.

Not a man, but still part woman...I skip through life like a nomad...trying each and everything, checking off my 'things to do in life' list happily, and think we are all so wonderfully and inescapably the most beautiful creatures when combined or in touch with each side...along with many other things on the planet, and universe. I have found my voice in this life and do say 'No' when I want without fear of not being liked, and seek to gain as much knowledge as I can. I am a freed Knomen.

What a great post, E! I can see alot of myself in you. Don't know if you should be flattered or scared!LOL! Hopefully you will get your Harley soon. I have one and it is so much fun to ride! Now I will think of you whenever I ride. and I love that your hubby will have to ride bitch! You will have to wear the shirt that says "if you can see the back of this shirt, the bitch fell off"

I am cracking up...and jealous, said I would have one at 45, but my visions fell to the wayside...now I have picked up the pieces...I love those tee-shirts...I will have to go buy me a Harley shirt for inspiration and hang it on the wall...

Well I'm not bored anymore, I've been reading all day, just came up for a little air...

When I was growing up, I wasn't into all the girly things, but I'm making up for it now...Bigblock and I was getting ready to go get something to eat and he said where are we going for lunch tomorrow...maybe you'll be ready by then.....he's so not funny

I'm with your hubby, I like the Benz sitting out front too...though I did date a guy with a Harley..I miss that man! LOL

WOW! my very own fan site - I am flattered... and frightened... first you would have to sort out all the fact from fiction in my life and I wont even attempt to do that - though every now and then I may do some self defiling at the Deringer Files... thanks for the complement... and to answer your question about the art I use - it is Mr. Jack Vettriano who illustrates most of my entries - I am sure you have seen many of his works, if not the darker more seductive pieces which I use...

Dash- Art is art...sometimes unexplainable...and sexy, beautiful, and can leave you speechless...do we really want to know all the raw details...

I grew up with 4 brother and a mom who was a tomboy. I was raised "boy like" in the fact that I did all the work like a boy would. Heavy stuff and all that and anything my parents wouldn't. From a young age I had been repeatedly raped by someone close to me which made me retreat into myself and become boyish on the outside. After I was on my own I started reading Vanity Fair and saw what I was missing my whole life. I wore make up and perfume. Fashioned Fashions to fit my body type. I have a duality in me which hates men and loves them for obvious reason. I am a woman who doesn't want to be one alot of times and who wasn't really raised as one. That was until about three years ago when I met my husband and then later cemented by my first pregnancy. I love being a woman now. I have been reborn.

There was a bit of honesty I am sure you weren't counting on.

BTW how is that lady who works with you in your cafe?

Much love Christine

She will have a long journey to walk before her fog of pain even begins to life...I believe it is hard loosing a child...even harder being blind sided by their loss...can it be possible to have different levels of pain...yes, we each have our own no matter what...I am there to help do what ever someone needs me to
