POST HOLIDATE SUMMARY:

Blog #1289


NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 successfully completed its 24TH Round; its 24TH Year (that’s 2 Dozen Times) of being the most influencive HOLIDATE in Pop(ular Culture) on and in The Retail Marketplace.

Although The Principles & Postulates of how to properly SPLURGE when

“The Urge to Splurge”

is highlighted and spotlighted on the 18TH of June have drastically changed (both physically, mentally, economically, financially & spiritually) for People from the care-free 1990s to the tumultuous 21st Century, the Essence & Quintessence of this ASKian Event (one of ADRiENNE SiOUX KOOPERSMiTH’s 1900+ HOLIDATES TO CELEBRATE) remain a Happy Point in one’s Day and one in which is looked forward (to). Its “Selling Point” (meaning its Popularity increases annually) during The Course of the ensuing Year (s), one often marred and marked by Violence, Hate, Disillusionment & Despair. There’s no time to “be a Bigot or Racist” when you’re out there SPLURGING,” quips ASK at 5:29 AM on Tuesday, June 19TH, 2018 while writing the FollowUp to yesterdays’s Extravaganza. “NSD” continues to be ripe with all the Key Elements of bringing People together, no matter:

WHO they are;
WHAT they believe in;
WHERE they live;
WHEN June 18 arrives; The People automatically turn up; they are there to:
“GYSO: Get Your Splurge On.”


REGARDLESS OF FIRST OR THIRD PERSON:

And, that is something that no Government can do as I do.
And, that is something that no Government can do as Koopersmith does.

Have HOLIDATES will travel…®

Far and wide and ride with “The Flow” in a most goodwill, humanitarian, altruistic, educational, recreational, spiritual, patriotic, fun-type and fun-time way as The Definition of HOLIDATE reveals in all 34 of its Categories.

 2018 STAT(ISTIC)S
 From TOP 12 SOCIAL MEDIA 
Defining a 21ST Century INFLUENCER

Look up The Word: INFLUENCER in The Dictionary, any Dictionary & there's My Picture.  Possibly air-brushed since 1994 was 24 years ago; nearly a Quarter of a Century has passed since The Concept and Origins of National Splurge Day ©1994 launched a Day that now has become Mainstream & relevant to Millions upon Millions of People (signifying what they like in Places about an Assortment of Things) across Time & Space.

CONSEQUENCES ASIDE:  As these Statistics stack up, an important Social Movement in TCA: The Calendar Arts (Term created by ASK on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 5:38 AM) has fully penetrated and taken over The Open Marketplace. Not necessarily by Storm or Corporate Shakeup but by astute Diligence & sophisticated Persistence; my Grit + Stamina with Creative Slants as to what will, can and does join People together and not tear or rip them apart.

Therefore, without further adieu, The Figures from The 24TH Annual #NationalSplurgeDay according to @Google have been gathered.  I thank you all for participating. I am happy I was “The Go-To” Source to divert you from another boring and humdrum Day; one in which We (as a People from across The World) could and did come together & SPLURGE in a Variety of momentous Ways & Means.

AICOR: AT ITS CORE OF RELEVANCE:  These Traits is what it takes to be(come) an Influencer.  The Act & Action of Influencing is an Outgrowth of a Set of Values that affect a Set of Emotions & Movements taking place in a decisively decisive Manner that benefits The Masses. Surviving – Improving – Evolving over The Test of Time by living One’s Life to its fullest is now referred to as The Koopersmith Effect.

NOTE:  These Numbers undoubtedly increased as there was still approximately 6.5 Hours to SPLURGE till 11:59 PM CST on The Date of June 18, 2018.

Since a sizable Number of People find out about NSD ATE: After The Event, the Updated Figure will be posted here on July 1, 2018, leaving the HOLIDATE to infiltrate and entertain as it naturally does.  After all,  it is entertaining when one Splurges although the Rules & Regulations of this HOLIDATE evolve over the Course of Time. Talking about and planning (for) THE SPLURGE is only Part of the Packaged FUN; The FollowUp is where the History & Mystery of Holidatology lurks.

This Year's Theme is:

The Castaway Numbers are boggling and escalating as We figuratively speak here. Merely read the Daily  Headlines on each Screen you use and utilize to know in -your Heart of Hearts that it's far better 2 B generous IF given The Chance.  This Opportunity is what my #HOLIDATES successfully do...NOW - nearly Thirty (30) Years in "The Making" as of July 25, 2020 which is now declared & proclaimed as:

The Decade of Eventology ©2018.

Now @ Age 65 and having created over 1,900 (the Stats are closer to 2,200) HOLIDATES in 34 different Categories, it is vitally necessary to establish an Institute of Eventology to reflect The Strides I have made in Popular Culture across the Globe & the Influence I have exerted by the Numbers of People/Companies alone who have participated in these HOLIDATES.  No Heirs exist.  Therefore, my GO FUND ME Account has been set up at:

Maraschino Mondays🍒 ©2018 launched by ASK/Chicago to curtail Escalation of Suicide. It just might work.




 ASK: ADRiENNE SiOUX KOOPERSMiTH
iNSPIRE.   iNFLUENCE.   iMPACT
“For The EVENTS of Our Lives that matter most…”
DateLine:  Saturday, June 9, 2018 – 9:57 AM CST

Chicago, Illinois USA:


Two larger-than-Life Personalities (whom We thought "had it ALL") committed Suicide this past Week in the United States who clearly touched The Lives of Billions of others for Decades around The World. They were:


Kate Spade & Anthony Bourdain


On record as:

I find it necessary to help dissolve and take THE EDGE off and from our Lives. I do this quite simply by creating Holidates. My General Thought Process is that: IF an Event or Special Occasion is added or scheduled that Happening diverts our "Stinkin Thinkin" allowing that each Day is lived to its fullest. 

In the Grand Scheme of Things in what We do each Day, do bear in mind that clearly another Road & Alternative can and sometimes MUST be taken so that Crisis are curtailed, diverted and stopped. Happiness & a State of Gentility are restored. Others (as Family) are spared the Sadness & Sorrow of what a Suicide signals.  Therefore, the following Tweet - Twitter Post launching a(nother) new Holidate (scheduled for  52 Times a Year) called:


Maraschino Mondays🍒 ©2018 

is ripe for The Pickins!

That Social Media Announcement reads as:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


#Maraschino_Mondays🍒 ©2018  begins on Monday, June 11, 2018 One Week before one of my grandest and most popular Holidates: National Splurge Day ©1994 occurs, now in its 24TH exciting Year.  "The Urge to Splurge" was recently featured on or in:

Fast Company
Time
NPR's Planet Money
NBC/NYC
CNN
Newsy
WGN Morning News
as well as thousands of  Internet/Print/Radio-TV Listings since its Inception in 1994.


Throughout Contemporary Times, Monday (as a full-fledged Day & 24 Hour Parcel of Time) has received a "Bad Rap" only because of where it is stationed on The Calendar. Via a Study (released to NBC News on Thursday, July 8, 2009) published in Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology, Fourteen Percent (14%) of Suicides occur on a Monday. Therefore, if We (Common People like you and me) can divert any Harm from The Ones We know & love (who are more susceptible), then a Precious Life has been  spared & saved; and GOOD has been accomplished. Restored for yet another Day.  After all, a  Child is born and surely does not think s/he wants to die at his own hand(s). I do realize that Suicide Victims do not announce their Premeditated Plans, but if We have an Inkling, that Instinct must be acted upon.   

ENTER:  Maraschino Cherries
Maraschino Cherries are cheery; they always brighten up a Beverage or Food and they taste good - at the delicious Level of Epicurean Consumption. They signal in that a Party is soon to be taking place. They've long been a favorite Graphic Design that's used in Kitchenware, on Clothing, anywhere a Spark & Splash of Color is needed. Rumor has revealed that  in Paleontology Circles Cherries were painted on Early Man's Inner Limestone Cave Walls next to his Bison Drawings. 




Feel free to familiarize yourself with yet another Preventative Holidate issued on Tuesday, November 7, 2017:

 The 2018 Launch of SPY: #Suicide_Prevention_Year. 
An International People-to-People Alert. Inspired by: Wisdom of The Crowd – CBS.

Man + Date = Mandate. Voilà: The Mandate of all Times. ASK/Chicago launches the original Man Dates of Manday(s) & Menday(s) coming to a Monday near you. Now and Forever. Rocket Science for a broken World. Giving HOPE to The Hopeless especially if you are a 21ST Century Male.



ASK/Chicago:

@ASK_Koopersmith


DATELINE:  Monday, June 4, 2018 6:27 AM CST


I am totally exhausted and tired of The Abuse & Harm Men are facing today.


Allegations – Charges – Abuse of all Kinds and every Variety. Guilty without proven Innocent.


Let’ s lighten up & give - cut them -  some Slack.


After all, what Message is being sent out to our Children?



There’s The ME TOO Movement. Now there’s the MEN, TOO Movement.

What’s good 4 The Goose is good for The Gander and vica versa.


RETURNING THE KIND TO MANKIND: 

As an official Calendar Interpreter & LifeStyle Purveyor (since July 25, 1990), a Positive Spin must immediately be placed on ATM:  All Things Men in order to change that stale Mindset (that borders on being “A Witch Hunt) from going down “this dreadful Road.” By giving all Men every where and at every Point of their Lifetimes their own Day, this HOLIDATE holds HOPE and breaks with the deplorable Ways many are treated.


A Weekly HOLIDATE that transpires and grows over its initial First Year that occurs 52 Times, annually from this Date onward, Monday:  aka: Manday/Menday, begins now on:


June 4, 2018

The 155TH Day of 2018 in its 23RD Week of 2018 with 210 Days left


appropriately held during the Month of Father’s Day also hailed as Gay Pride Month.  It’s Timing could not be better!


Manday/Menday has been created, developed and launched in order to bring Men’s Plight to the proverbial Table for Discussion and shine a Positive Light on Men’s Contribution to Century 21.



This Action is MANdatory (read into that what you like) because now Monday is being respelled in Trending Circles as:


Manday & Menday ©2018

Menday ©2018


to make sure all Bases are covered. Wordicologists (of all Sexes) and Grammarians (of all Persuasions) will delight in this Term. It’s the correct and proper Eventological Action to take and do, closely interacting with my HOLIDATE that I created earlier this year named:


Millennium_of_The_Woman ©2018


found online at:   http://tinyurl.com/ybdtof2p


whose Twitter Post reads as:

Long overdue, Our Day has come: All 365,250 of them. ASK/Chicago creates longest running Holidate (Event) in History of Humanity. Saluting: Womankind in The #Millennium_of_The_Woman ©2018. #StepItUp! How Respect saves "The Day," literally. tinyurl.com/ybdtof2p


More can and will be said here on Blog #1285 as The Feedback flows in and The Subject and Subjects are given their FAD: Fair Amount Due…



CLOSING THOUGHT: 

For “The Beleaguered and The Troubled,” in the early 1990s, I recall an old Friend, Buc Pantelis telling me how he approaches Stories and News. What he did was “step into another’s Shoes.” Then, he stated: “You can then see why and how they acted or reacted in the way they did.”  That Summary (a Conscious Choice to make) made Sense to me with every Sense that We have. This Approach can solve what each Day presents to us, whether We are Male or Female.  Drilling them in to place via these HOLIDATES ensures that the Best Life ever is lived.

ASK Koopersmith launches comprehensive FAMILY Oriented Holidate to heal those of Violence both in and outside of the Home.

MEDIA RELEASE:
May 25, 2018

 


The Eventological Launch of:
Shattered Family Days ©2018
a/k/a: 
Shattered Lives Days ©2018

A Year devoted to The Dynamics that interfere with a Healthy Life & Lifestyle as previously assumed by Families who are hurt, troubled and become The Victim of a Spouse who crosses the Line…


In Tweet Format distributed on Friday, May 25, 2018 - 6:42 AM

As #Americas_Premier_Eventologist my newest #HOLIDATE in order 4 #Families 2 heal in lite of all this Familial Conflict & Disruption's called:  #ShatteredFamily_Days running now thru #May_25_2019. Ban 2gether 2 give #COMFORT 2 those who R shocked by this Chaos; so its non-repeat
 

ASK's EVENTOLOGICAL NOTE: Why this HOLIDATE is needed.
StoryLine continue
s in Three (3) separate Divisions:

1)  picking up “The Broken Pieces” and Heartache so that Family Members (from the Smallest to the remaining Parent) realize and do not become victimized all the more.

2) Realizing “Trust Issues” surface at Times like these.

3) Knowing you are not the “Only One.”

This is 1 of 30+ Family based HOLIDATES I have created since July 25, 1990 at 9:45 PM, nearly 30 years ago come 2020.  Being extremely similar in vein, Wounded Warrior Days ©1995 was launched after Timothy McVeigh’s Attack on the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  A General Theme of  Humanity stretches across the more serious HOLIDATES on this Roster.

 

BACKGROUND:  Finding Comfort in Clamor & Chaos

You don’t need to have a Daddy who is an influential Hollywood Movie Mogul to mess-up your Life.  Adultery & Misconduct (inclusive of unwanted Sexual  Encounters leading to Allegations & Convictions) can and do happen at all Levels of 21ST Century Life. If We were to trace it back, We’d find its Roots in the Days of Adam & Eve. Called to the Forefront now (moreso than ever) because of Social Media’s Impact and The Fact that as Dee Snider’s Song Reveals, “We are not going to take IT” anymore, We can now find others who are Kindred Spirits.

While I wrote and composed this HOLIDATE 7 months before Christmas when FAMILY is to be celebratory and in a festive mood, this Year will be far different for many Families that we may be in or know.

While I wrote and composed this HOLIDATE, it dawned on me that my Father, the notable Louis Koopersmith (1925-1979), Mayor of Mendota, Illinois 61342 (a Midwest Farming Community of 7000 people located 100 miles southwest of Chicago) was a Philanderer. He allegedly had another Family “on the Side” and fathered Lola’s (yes, her name was Lola) 3 Kids while putting on the Mild Manner Actions of The Mayor of the Town, the most popular Mayor of nearly 16 years in office.  Leading to an unprecedented grizzly Divorce (to that Point in Illinois Legal History) in which I was forced to go home (from July of 1976 – November, 1977) leaving my Advertising Job in Chicago and care (ie: act as a Witness) for my Mother since “Dad” threatened to kill her, I was swept up in The Bickering of 2 Adults acting like Juveniles all in the Name of who had the most Money and who wanted to put another 25 years into a Marriage that should never have taken place period.  Beyond Irreconcilable Differences, Parents are able to scar their Children in so many Ways. It may take Decades until they realize they are “Damaged Goods.”  Yet, entering The World as a “Bundle of Joy,” The Pitfalls of Life have to be addressed so that Outcries for Help as We are constantly seeing on the Nightly News with School Shootings are halted.

The Bottom Line is that Koopersmith Family Dilemma ended 42 years ago.  But it did not. At that Time the only other Family to experience a Divorce was The Stockhus Family: Bill and Nancy are/were the Parents.  Bill married into Big Money as Nancy’s Family was loaded; Nancy was a confirmed Alcoholic and was our town’s “Gloria Vanderbilt” in The Sense that she was a “Poor Little Rich Girl” – having the material possessions life could buy and offer her, but not The Genuine Happiness that We all seek.  David and Mark were their 2 Sons, tall,  handsome and very blond.  Surfer like in Stance although Mendota was no where close to an Ocean.  Sally & Henry were their Two (2) Beagles.  At least, Nancy & Bill were smart enough to get “The Boys” Pets in order to allay what happened behind “Closed Doors.”

The Stockhus Family lived one house away from us in Mendota.  Sad to say, David committed Suicide in early May of 2017, not that long ago as what he saw as his Life as falling apart.  For two years before the Event, We reconnected and chatted by phone about “Adult Children of Divorced Parents” – nearly as We would -- had we attended a 12 Step Alcoholics Anonymous Meeting. Although I had not spoken to David or his Brother Mark (living on the West Coast) for 50 years, our Stories were uncannily parallel. We did all meet in August of 2015 for my 45TH Year High School Class Reunion, a bittersweet Event at that.

INSERT:  My SPY: Suicide Prevention Year ©2017 was created in Remembrance of David as well as Jim Vincent (another Mendotan) who took his own Life in the early 1970s.  A friend of my Brother’s, “Vince” as we called him went to Nam, Viet Nam, and could not re-adjust to civilian life. On a quiet morning without giving anyone a clue to his depression and PTSD (known as Shell Shock 40+ years ago), he drove to Chicago (a 100 mile Journey) where he drove his car into Lake Michigan behind McCormick Place, drowning. 

What those Families and Friends suffered after “THE ACT” had taken place will always be imbued in their Hearts and Minds and carve out what Decisions and Choices they make for the Rest of their Lives.  Therefore, whether it is a:

a) Gargantuan Terrorist Attack

b) A Coping Mechanism that’s gone awry or

c) A Feud between 2 People who should act MORE adult and take their Responsibilities seriously,

We are indeed living in Troubled Times where if the Terrorists don’t GET US, the Weather will.  The last thing We need is to find Disruption in what should be the Havens of a loving Home. 

 

UNDERSTANDING THE HUMAN CONDITION FROM THE 60+ YEAR OLD PERSPECTIVE:  How Seniority sheds an entire different Light on Our Fates

Now, 65 Years and 289 Days old…

Therefore, The Agony & Splinters of Shattered Family Days ©2018 aka:  Shattered Lives Days ©2018 is to assist in taking “The Edge” off of Everyone since no one is immune from the Struggles of Daily Life.
