Looner Study: What I learned from liking balloons


I did an interview with Practitioner’s TV about balloons. This YouTube channel is out of Philadelphia and came to visit me to learn about what looners are and balloon & latex fetishism, based on a paper I wrote while in York College of PA in May of 2012. I agreed to the interview because I was promised the show was to promote acceptance rather then ostracize those who love balloons. The interview will be release this Thursday, June 22, 2017.

I have never shared the results of my questionnaires with anyone other than my professor and people who submitted responses and wanted to see the final thesis paper. I decided to share the paper now that the episode was coming out so people could see the full study along with the interview and the awesome song written by Dave DeHart of They & Them. Here is the link to the song he wrote based on the interview.

Below are the links to my thesis paper for my professional writing class. I received a perfect score though she teased me I did miss some commas. 🙂

Here is the link to my YouTube channel where I enjoy making videos for other people. They’re just me being silly, and blowing up balloons, and popping them. Either you’re into watching (or hearing) them or you’re not. It’s all good. I rarely make a video anymore, but I still think balloons are awesome.



Thanks for stopping by! If you like what you read and want others to read it too, show you care and share this post. 🙂 🙂

Please write me a note in the comments about your thoughts on the results of my paper.

Here’s the episode!!


There may be other links through the balloon tags on my blog site that don’t work. I had to delete tons of photos of balloons I had because I didn’t have space. 😦

Philadelphia Pride Parade 2013

Sunday, June 9th was the annual Pride Parade in Philadelphia.  Happy 25 years of pride Philadelphia!

Click on the first picture and the gallery will open.  Comments welcome!  I was able to take amazing shots after I walked into the press box like I belonged there.


Not a pretty driving bra

Does my bra looked stuffed? Go ahead...be honest. LOL

If I had really thought these spur-of-the-moment photos out, I would have worn a pretty driving bra.  ~P.

How to fill-out your bra:

Lung Exercises

Decided to blow off some steam with Dale.  :-)~~





The night ended well…we all popped!


Finally Friday-twas a long, short week

This has been one heck of a week.  Even with Monday off and missing Tuesday to be with my mom (who is back in the hospital in Harrisburg) it still felt L-O-N-G.  I blame it on the refusal to allow Tesla and I time together through the week.

I heard talk from classmates… my Human Comm professor telling his other classes about my balloon fetish infomative speech.  I got a giggle out of that…tickled I made such an impression.

My Spanish composition is complete.  I will post it after it is graded so my Spanish is corrected.  We had to write about our wedding plans or divorce party plans.  I was so motivated I even included little pictures I cut out to go with my Divorce Party announcement.  If only it were real.  I’d love to have Dora and Diego throw a party for me with balloons, beer, a pink hippo and a drunk monkey named Boots.

So Tesla and I are going to Chuck-E-Cheese!  You know…where a kid can be a kid!

I’m bringing home a balloon too!


Sharks & Octopus

These are my two favorite animals.  I have a tattoo of a hammerhead on my ankle and an octopus on my chest.

Today’s picture search for balloons all have to do with my favorite animals.

Happy Easter

The Easter Bunny stopped by my home last night.  Didn’t leave ANY candy, only balloon shrapnel!

Kinky Balloon

These are mildly kinky.  ;-0  ~P.

Smoke and Explode

Last night I googled balloon + smoke and filled balloon and balloon explode
