In Today's Mail

I am sure everyone knows about MySpace and Friendster, communities to reunite with old friends and make new friends. Every once in awhile you get the odd e-mail, which makes for a funny blog. I got an e-mail today from a guy interested in a climbing partner. But that wasn't the funny part, this disclaimer came with the e-mail, " I'm not interested in a relationship right now, but if
you'd like someone to climb with, let me know.". Umm, thanks for the heads up. Ya know, just in case I fall in love with you. Does anyone else find that a little cocky to include in an introductory e-mail?

Its like saying, hi, I'm really hot and I know you are going to fall for me, but you can't because you know I just don't want that right now. Wouldn't this information come out after an initial meeting with a person. I mean I guess he wanted to be very clear that all he was looking for was a climbing partner, but if he has worded the e-mail that he was interested in climbing, I am sure I would have gotten the hint. I am a smart girl, I might have gotten the hint. But it was entertaining none the less. Can't fault a guy for being dead honest up front. I wish more where like that.

And the verdict is......

So of all the excuses I thought I would get from B, I wasn't prepared for the answer I got. Its the one excuse that shakes you and makes you question yourself. He said," I met someone else and I want to date her. And since I don't like to date two girls at once, I had to tell you." Well points for being honest, though I wonder if I hadn't e-mailed would he have told me, or mysteriously disappeared.

This completely blindsided me. This is the guy that told me, " it seems we are on the same page." Well it turns out that I was on page 505 and he was back on page 212. Of course there were tears, I won't lie. I fall quickly for guys that I feel a real connection with, seeing as I rarely find guys that meet this quality.

I also wondered a little when he had the time to meet someone else. We saw each other every 2 or 3 days. Was it in the 4 days I was gone for work? Then we really aren't on the same page are we? Was I just a between girl, while he was waiting for something better to come along? Maybe.... I won't ever know.

So this is it.......

So I decided to e-mail B in a last ditch effort, to get him to respond to me. Wel he did. And in it the dreaded "we need to talk" phrase. So now I feel sick to my stomach, knowing what is coming. The " I am not really looking for a girlfriend right now" " Something is missing", or the million other generic reasons people come up with for not dating. I wonder which one he will use...... the obvious one to me and I would bet $$$ on it, is " I am not really looking for a girlfriend". I will keep you posted to the outcome.

Well the Amazing Liz has done it again.....I have managed to find and fall for a guy. Everything goes wonderful, especially in the case. After P.T. and I were thru I decided to e-mail this guy that I sort of blew off when P.T and I first started dating. The fact that he agreed, I was shocked. We immediately hit it off. But thats not this is about. Its is about a guy completely disability to end things in a normal manner. Now P.T and B aren't the only ones that I have encountered this problem with. But having them back to back has managed to put me in a throughly bad mood. The way things ended with P.T., I wasn't shocked. It think I forsaw it the entire time. Only because of the past we already have. But with B, it was entirely different. Instead of the random text messages and infrequent vists, B and I saw each other a couple of times a week. We always had fun, laughing, talking, everything. I vowed to do things differently then I had with P.T.. I was going to let things go with the flow and let things happen naturally. And everything was going ok, with only mild attacks of The Crazy. I even saw him the day before I left for a business trip. The usual I will call you when I get back sort of thing. We evenexchanged an e-mail as well. So Friday rolls around and I leave a message for B. Its now sunday evening and I have heard nothing.

Now maybe I will hear from him soon, when he has free time, but based on what I know from before I left. I feel this is a little out of character and am preparing myself for the envitable. This segues to my question or gripe, depending on how you look at it. I guess I am annoyed and borerline infuriated. Why can't he call it off, if thats the route he wants to take, why stop calling all of a sudden? Even an impersonal e-mail. But to leave me hanging? Come on.... I feel bad enough racking my brain for a reason that a four day business trip makes him completely forget about me. And on a another note... this happening repeatly ( yes, anything more than one is a repeat) is getting to me. I start to question my ability to even be able to pick men to date. Being a girl to we immediately question what is wrong with us. And I can't say I haven't thought about it.

I have always felt with every guy that I dated, that if left alone for long enough, I would be forgotten. I have never felt entirely secure with any guy. Pyscho-analyze if you want, I am sure there is a reason for this insecurity. I try and suck it up and not let the new guy suffer thru mistakes or actions that someone else caused. But my friends know the truth and bear with me while The Crazy takes hold. I try to come up with a logical reason to why it happens over and over again. The only thing I come up with... it just wasn't the right one. What else can I do. I already drive myself to tension headaches and an upset stomach. But if it isn't right, it isn't right and no amount of worrying will change that. It hard to come to terms with. Feeling like you'll never find the right one. With everyone around you either in a relationship or walking down the aisle. It makes you feel this invisible pressure, that something is missing. I know I have wonderful supportive friends and they are the world to me. But after rejection # 2, really feeling down in the dumps. I am sure my readers (all 3 of you) will find this quite depressing and Tiff and Michele, I know you will want to make me feel better. And I truly appreciate you. But its just a phase and will hopefully pass soon.

Childhood Fears

With Halloween only a day away, I thought it would be cute to fill you in on my geeky childhood fears.

1) My closet at my parents house. As a child my bed faced the closet and it had slatted sliding doors. The doors could never close properly and there was always a little piece open. NOw instead of being a mildly normal child,I wasn't scared of monsters, I was scared of ostrichs. Yes I said ostrich, the giant flightless bird. For some reason I imagined that an ostrich was in my closet. Now I have no real life basis for fear of ostrichs, never a bad run in that might have scarred me for life. But as a child I would be scared to fall asleep in case the ostrich might come out of the closet and not in a sexually identifing way.

2)I am scared of the dark. Ok, this fear transends my childhood. I'll admit this, but at least this fear is founded. Like all little kids I was scared of the dark. But as a senior in high school, I was a cabin counselor for a science camp that was a week long with 6th graders. One of the nights at the camp is a night hike. Great way to show my authority to the 6ths grade. Take the high school senior to wander out in the dark with a bunch of 11 years old. Guess who was more scared??? At one point of the hike, the kids were asked to be four feet apart along the trail. The idea was for the kids to relax, listen to the forest at night. Well as we got up to go after siting still for 20 minutes. I am standing in the rear of the group to make sure we don't lose anyone. Well as I am picking up kids to follow the rest of the group, something furry ran across my foot. I kid you not! We had no flashlights so the best I can guess is that something the size of a small racoon run across my foot. Some poor 6th grade boy ( who by the way was taller and bigger than me) got the surprise of his life when I jumped in to his arms. After I climbed down and swore the boy to secrecy, we walked back to the camp. To this day I swaer some small furry animal is stalking me to get a big laugh out of me.

3)Clowns. Now this fear doesn't border absolute panic. But I watched Stephen Kingn's It, I know the true story about clowns. Freaky things. And obviously its true, because "Saw" has a freaky clown in it. There is something odd about them, I mean really. Something about the make up and creepy smiles set me on edge. Also the field of clowns are predominantly male, what does that say about them. They are drawn to make up and screaming children. I am sure there is a medical term for that.

So Happy Halloween!

Lord, I Hate to Fly

This afternoon found me at the McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, after a four day work trip. Now I have been to Las Vegas frequently over the past 6 years. But what the hell is with the zoo at the airport. I swear that place combines three of my biggest pet peeves.

1) Slow walkers!!! People in an aiport are not there for the scenery, to look at the pictures. So why oh why do people meadering, or even better stop in front of you while you are walking. I mean it could be the middle of the walkway and instead of merging to the right to take care what ever they need to. They decide that stopping in the middle of the walkway is the best place possible to ponder what snack to have or pick their ass.

2) People who camp out in front of the gate door before boarding. Because god forbid if they don't, they might not get a seat. Never mind the fact that , ummm, the airline, while annoying at times, did account for ttheir presence. So I am guessing they will get a seat whether they hover at the front or wait like the rest of the other people.

3)The mass exodus getting off the plane. You know what I am talking about, when the plane has barely made it to the gate and everyone is scrambling over their seats to get to the overhead bin. Does it ever occur to them that they can't go anywhere until the flight staff opens the door? So what good does it do to stand in the aisle? Why can't anyone exit in an orderly fashion. I swear everyone will get off the plane , the flight staff isn't going to keep everyone on the plane for their own amusement. I mean unless you are cute. Believe me the flight staff wants off more than you do.

As you can see the blah's haven't lifted. Lucky you!

So its Not Just Me

After reading RF's and IIF's blogs today, I am happy to report that I am not insane. But the question remains? Is there something in the water that is causing all this grouchiness and depression? I personally haven't felt like myself in days. I feel that I am overly sensitive as of late. I find myself over analyzing everything (mostly in the boy deptarment), which of course never leaves me in the best of moods. As my RF's know I am not great at dating , at least anyone I really like. Weird huh? The thing is, I constantly worry that the guy that I have made my mind up that I like, will change his mind. Find something about me he won't like. Which leads to the over analyzing and imaginary stress.

My self esteem isn't at its highest. And I am pretty sure I have a permanent scowl on my face. The idea of socializing with other than close friends makes me break out in hives. Mind you I am currently in vegas for business, so I am forced to do exactly what I don't want to do.

I just feel out of sorts these past few days. I get easily annoyed and down. I could blame it on the weather, but I love the cloudy weather. It frustrates me to now be able to figure out why I feel like this, but it is mildly comforting to hear that I am not the only one. Not that I wish this on anyone, but I am typically a happy go lucky person, always smiling and laughing. So to be feel like that, worries me a little. I am sure it will end soon, and I apologize for the not so funny uplifting tone to this blog.

Another MeMe

Sorry Guys, I know I have been doing alot of these lately. I can't think of anything interesting to write about.

Name someone with the same birthday as you.
I think there was a girl in my high school that did. As you can see we were really close ;).

Where was your first kiss?
If we are talking first little girl kiss. It was when I was in second grade. I was visting family friends in San Diego, they have a son my age. I decided that I was going to kiss him, so I crawled up on top of him and kissed him. Then our mother's walked in and nearly died. Mine from laughing so hard, his from the scandal of it all.

Have you ever seriously vandalized someone else’s property?

Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex?
Ummm, I did kick this guy in the crotch when I was in first grade. It was Friday Flip Up day and he had spent the better part of the recess chasing me around trying to flip up my skirt, so I whirled around and kicked out. Turns out he was closer to me than I thought and my kick connected to his groin. He still hasn't forgiven me.

Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people?
Yes, I was in the choir in HS.

What’s the first thing you notice about the preferred sex?

What is your biggest mistake?
Not believing in myself.

nope, but I wished I had on the bottom teeth.

Are you comfortable with your height?
I guess, I get alot of short jokes, but I am use to them by now.

What is the most romantic thing someone of the opposite sex has done for you?
This is depressed Michele's brother Shawn, but sadly no guy I have ever dated did anything romantic for me.

When do you know it’s love?
Oh god, I am not sure I am the person to ask this question. I agree with Michele's answer. When you realize you can't live without them.

Do you speak any other languages?
Very little Spanish.

Have you ever been to a tanning salon?
Yes, I hate myself during the winter months.

What magazines do you read?
I read Self and Cooking Light.

Have you ever ridden in a limo?

Has anyone you were really close to passed away? Close in terms of fmaily tree, yes, my grandfather. Close in terms of emotionally? no one.

Do you watch MTV?

What’s something that really annoys you?
Oh lord, is there enough space. Here is the condensed list: people who are late, arrogance, ignorance, immaturity, sense of entitlement that isnt earned, people who don't think before they speak.

What’s something you really like?
The sound of rain falling. I miss it lately. Its such a soothing sound, to sit on a proch with a glass of wine listening to it. Sounds like music to me.

Can you dance?
Only when alcohol is involved.

What’s the latest you have ever stayed up?
I've done a few 24 hours. You don't want to know me the next day though. I am Oscar the Grouch.
Have you ever been rushed by an ambulance into the emergency room?
Yes, I was 14 years old and involved in a fatal accident. I have very vague memories of the ride or the experience at all. But I do remember bits and pieces.

Just What You All needed........

Friday Feast #1

Do you button shirts top-to-bottom or bottom-to-top?

Ummm, I for the life of me can't find a button up shirt that won't pull in the breast region, so I don't wear button up shirts. How do you like that problem.
What is your favorite sandwich?

I will stand by the underdog and say Smoked Turkey and Swiss from Dittmer's, they are the best. I don't care what you people say.

What was a family project you helped work on as a child?

I was my dad's little greasy monkey. I helped him work on the cars. I think I got more dirty handing him the tools, then he got actually working on the car at all.

Main Course
When have you acted phony?

Everyday at work talking to asinine people. Having to be smiley and nice to people who are rude.

Do you write letters or postcards? If so, to whom?

I do write to one person. He is a childhood friend that is very dear to me. He is in jail, so e-mail isn't an option.

Riddle me this Riddle me that

To add to the mysteries of the universe see if you can answer me this:

I have an ex-boyfriend (he's been an ex for about 10 years), we have dated on and off for about those 10 years too. Never longer than a few weeks, timing was always an issue. Not long ago he was in town and he called me, asked me if we could get together, translates to "I have an itch". I told him I had a boyfriend ( which was true at the time) , and he sounded dejected but said hey ok. We continued to chat on and off, both of us dating someone else. Not long ago, I found myself single again and the ex Imed me. We were chatting away and of course the obligatory " hows the significant other doing" came up. I told him that unfortunately it didn't work out and I was single again. His reply, "Good, I was jealous". HUH?? What rights do you have to be jealous, we haven't ever had anything resmbling a serious relationship. How can you be jealous??? Anyway, plans for a visit are impending between the ex and I, we start talking for frequently trying to coordinate our schedules. Somewhere along the line, I am getting the vibe that he just isn't as in to this anymore, the conversations slow down and are now at a complete stop. Now, this has happened every time and I mean every time we have started dating. Why do I put up with it, I don't know. I must suffer from some mental illness, because to be honest its not like he is the best catch. But I have always thought he was the one I would end up with, after all of the dating.

What I don't understand is what this behavior tells me is, while he doesn't want me , he doesn't want anyone else to have me either. I am to wait until he is ready. HA, sweetheart, the day you figure out how you can have your cake and eat it to, let me know. It really makes no sense to me....

Dinner for One - 4th Installment

Take your phone number and add each number together separately (example 8+6+7+5+3+0+9=38) – what’s the total?

32, exactly what does that tell me other that the author of this questionnaire is running out of questions.

Dinner for One- Third Installment

I am a cleptomaniac of the Blog World, thanks Kate!

dinner for one

What time do you usually wake up each day? If you could choose your wake-up time, when would it be?
I wake up at 6:45am, hit the snooze for a five minute extension, then pry myself out of the warm nest of a bed to torture myself every weekday morning at the gym. I would prefer to wake up at 8 am, be able to go to the gym and to work by 10am. Ahhhh, wishful thinking.

When was the last time you bought groceries? What store did you go to? Name 3 things you purchased.

I went shopping last monday I believe. I always go to Trader Joes. I bought wine (duh), cat litter, and Green Tea Gelato. Hello Spinsterhood.

How many books have you read so far this year? Which was your favorite and why?

Ok I have enough misc. crap in my head, the number of books has no home there, but if you want to know the lyrics to 9 million country songs, I am your woman. I can tell you that my favorite read of this year was Kitrunner. While not a feel good book, the author draws you in to his world, and you can't put the book down.
Main Course
What is something you consider to be very elegant? In particular, what about that item/place/person conjures up the feeling of elegance?
The ability to show appreication is elegant. Whether its in the verbal or written form, thanking people is a necessity and elegant to me.

Who taught you how to drive?

My dad did and to this day he regrets it. He is an ex-mechanic and go cart drive. When you teach your daughter to drive it ends up looking like this: an overly aggressive tailgater with a sailors mouth.


I quick question for everyone. Is anyone else having really vivid dreams lately? I swear pretty much every night I have having the weirdest most vivid dreams. Please tell me I am not the only one.

Dinner for One

Again I have stole this from Kate href="">, because I know you all want to know more about me. ;)

Feast Two - Bon Appetit!

Where do you plan to go on vacation this year, or where would you want to go?
Seeing as this year is coming to a rapid close I am not sure that I will be taking a vacation. These are the days that I regret not having a corporate job. My job is a little complicated in the fact that no one else can do it. Talk about job security. But at the same time, when its busy I just can't get away. Every time I do take a vacation I spend the entire week before working until 9 and 10 pm at night, to prepare my boss for the week with out me.

What color is your bedroom? If you could redecorate it, what would you change?

My bedroom is a mocha color. I would like to put up a few more pieces of art, but other than that I am happy with it. A bigger bed would be nice. For such a short person, I take up alot of room.
Do you have a bumper sticker on your vehicle? If not, make one up!

Nope no bumper sticker. Though the best one I ever saw was " Unless you are a hemeroid, get off my ass". To this day it makes me chuckle. My second Favorite," No this is not my boyfriend'd truck.

Main Course
What’s the worst pain you’ve ever been in?
Like Kate, the physical pain was tolerable with the help of a few drugs. Emotional pain, is the emotional support my mom needed and still needs sometimes. In the beginning of the divorce, I couldn't say or do anything right, and she constantly threatened to cut me out of her life. She was so miserable and in her own hell, the emotional pain she inflicted on me, went unnoticed. AndI had no recourse, there was nothing I could do, unless I wanted to permanently get her out of my life. I was so emotionally exchausted, thought now on the road to recovery, that I could feel nothing other than her abuse.

Who is your favorite celebrity? What do they do that inspires you?

I don't really have a favorite, unless we are talking in the looks department, but their looks don't imspire me. They only make me drool. I appreciate the efforts of Angelina Jolie with the UN. Sandra Bullock for her donations with the Tsunami. But at the same time, I think alot of them can do more but don't.

A reminder.....

Iknow a e-mailed this out to a few of you, but I also wanted my IFF's (pretty much Kate) to read this and remind them of their fabulous worth.

One Flaw In Women

By the time the Lord made woman,

He was into his sixth day of working overtime..

An angel appeared and said,

"Why are you spending so much time on this one?"

And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her?

She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,

have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable

and able to run on diet coke and leftovers,

have a lap that can hold four children at one time,

have a kiss that can

cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart

-and she will do everything

only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements.

"Only two hands!? No way!

And that's just on the standard model?

That's too much work for one day.

Wait until tomorrow to finish."

But I won't," the Lord protested.

"I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart.

She already heals herself when she is sick

AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman.

"But you have made her so soft, Lord."

"She is soft," the Lord agreed,

"but I have also made her tough.

You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied,

"Not only will she be able to think,

she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel then noticed

and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.

"Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.

I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak,"

the Lord corrected,

"that's a tear!"

"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy,

her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love,

her loneliness, her grief and her pride."

The angel was impressed.

"You are a genius, Lord

You thought of everything!

Woman is truly amazing."

And she is!

Women have strengths that amaze men.

They bear hardships and they carry burdens,

but they hold happiness,

love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.

They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy

and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.

They stand up to injustice.

They don't take "no" for an answer

when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel

and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about

a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.

They grieve at the loss of a family member,

yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss

can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you

to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.

They have compassion and ideals.

They give moral support to their family and friends.

Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

However, If There Is One Flaw In Women,

It Is That They Forget Their Worth.

I hate stupid people

I just received the following comment via e-mail:

"Please make sure that you fax the appraisal on legal paper."

Ahem- Excuse me, but I have no control how YOUR fax machine prints my fax!!!!!!

Seriously people............

Think before you speak!

Ask before you......

Every morning I have a routine which includes that stopping by the local Starbucks picking up coffee for my boss and I, and listening to 106.5. This morning they had the musician Josh Kelly on and for some reason, the DJ must have thought this was related. The DJ had read this article, " 3 Questions You Should Ask Before Sleeping with Him.". I have no idea what the correlation was but I will show you the questions:

1:What is one thing you will never do again? Ok outside of the obvious answers like, I will never cheat again or I promise killing that man was a 1 time thing. What answer would make you reevaluate your need to get some?

2: What embarasses you? Why is this a deal breaking question? And how is this related to sex? I can not fathom anything so horrible that would affect my decision.

3: Would you date yourself? Now the DJ thought that if the guy answered in the affirmative, you should run for the hills. But let me ask you this, girls, would you date yourself? I think that I am a fairly decent catch. Does that make me egotistical? And if not, why the double standard for men?

I realize that these are character questions, but I guess I fail to see the connection to whether you should sleep with him or not. Your thoughts?

Party Like its Saturday Night

So from reading my Weekend Cap you know that I spent the better part of my Saturday on my ass catching up on Tivo. I have to say that it doesn't really motivate you to do anything. At all. So Saturday night dinner and drinks after were really mellow, because I was exhausted, yeah I have no idea how that happened, but I was. So last night rolled around and BestFriend Tiff and I went to our favorite dive bar owned by a friend of ours. It's like Cheers, where everybody knows your name. And you wish some people would forget it.

We met with with Angie and her fella, and a bunch of people I didn't say more than 5 words to. I was on a mission to make up for Saturday night, and yes I know it was Monday. I threw caution to the wind and ordered a Flaming Dr. Pepper. What I got was a Flaming Rootbeer Float, a little different but same mission. Now for fear of burning myself I like to blow out the flame before I drop the shot in the beer. Apparently I do not know my own lung capacity, because I blew flaming liquid on to the bar and it light on fire. What do I do ? Take a step back and make Ry ( Tiff's Boy) put it out. Please don't ever rely on me in an emergency, its a proven fact that the only roll I fill is the hysterical one. Can't help it. Not one of my favorite personality traits, but what is a girl to do. So after the fire is out, I decide I want another drink that involves flames. And you know , blame my friends, they let me have another. This is was actually a Flaming Dr. Pepper. And true to form, I don't know my own lung capacity and blew a little to hard, again. This time though I managed to spray everyone standing remotely near me. And this is a very sticky drink. I was not everyone's favorite person last night. Then I ask the bartender/friend and try to find out what my third shot should be. Are you noticing a pattern here......She informs me, I think for my own benefit, that taking another shot would just make me sick. So beer it is. Then on to the next brilliant idea. MUSIC!!!!! I turned that bar in to a 80's rock bar. Gun n' Roses, Bon Jovi, Def Lepard, Billy Idol. Oh and because I love it so, a little country for me. It is absolutely impossible to dance with a full beer. I have known this for years, but I was a wild child last night and decided to prove them wrong. I think my soggy flip flop would smack me up side the head if it could, or its to drunk to do so. Thank god there were no camera's last night. I am pretty sure that I was not at my best. BestFriend Tiff will comment on this I am sure, to add to the Monday Night Horror, that was Partying Like its Saturday Night.

What can I say, I rock !

Weekend in Review

I am stealing this from Tiffy, thanks doll.

2 great dates :D
1 dinner of fabulous greek food, YUM
1 Saturday spent glued to my couch in my PJ's for 6 hours.
1 Evening with BestFriend Tiff.
1 Rockstar before BestFriend, The Boy ( hers) and I went to Benihanas
1 Super yummy dinner at Benihanas
1 Delirious over slept break out, that came to fruition in the form of hysterical laughing and dancing around BestFriend Tiff's living room.
1 Shopping trip with mom

Ok not that exciting, I promise next weekend will be better.

Thank you

After all that complaining about P.T., the confusion, the anger, the immaturity of it all. Which were all valid feelings, mind you. Now, I just want to give him a big hug (figuratively of course), and thank him.

I know this sounds very weird especially after reading the two prior posts. But he is the catalyst that caused my present very happy situation. I don't know that I believe that things happen for a reason, but I do believe in karma. And for my good behavior and in my mind doing the right thing. I got my just desserts.

Now I am highly superstious( I know its spelled wrong, stupid spell check) about taking about new developments, hence the reason I am being so vague. Silly I know. :)

Do I Act My Age?

You Are 24 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Dining for One

Dinner for one

Feast Three- Bon Appetit!

What is your middle name? Would you change any of your names if you could? If so, what would you like to be called?

My middle name is Joann. I was named after my grandmother and her twin. So while its very cool that I was named after twins, the fact that my name a bazillion letters long is ANNOYING. The standing joke with my friends is that I won't marry for love, I will marry for a shorter last name. I mean seriously, my full name is longer than the alphabet. Can you imagine me in 1st grade when you learn all your name spelling? Umm teacher, how do I spell my last name. Teacher:Hell if I know kid. Obviously you can't do anything about your last name. But I wish my parents had gone with Option #2 which was Jade, but of course I couldn't be Jade Joann, but Jade Elizabeth wouldn't have sucked so bad.

If you were a fashion designer, which fabrics, colors, and styles would you probably use the most?
Good Lord, this is a hard question. I would stick with classic lines and flattering shapes, for normal shaped girls. Healthly gorgeous women with curves. I love cotton, linen, wool, pretty much anything but spandex. I want clothes that suggest curves, without clinging to them. I love bright colors and always the standard black. Its a staple, you can't avoid it.

What is your least favorite chore and why?
I don't have just one, there are two of my LEAST favorite chores. One, Dishes, I hate them, and I can't explain the driving force behind the hate but I do. Two, Laundry, I live in a place that has coin-op laundry, so the idea that I have to HAUL ( Did I mention that I have a nasty habit of leaving my laundry until the absolute last moment)my laundry down and spend money to do it, it truly unappealing.

Main Course
What is something that really frightens you, and you can trace it back to an event in your life?
My biggest fear growing up, was that I would never have a marriage that would even come close to the perfection my parents had. We had always been a very close knit family, we could talk openly and the love each of us had for one another and the love my parents had for each other, was palatable. Unfortunately I learned not so long ago that no marriage is perfect. My parents divorced a few months ago after 30 years of marriage. So now its a compounded fear of not finding my match and then will we even make it.

Where are you sitting right now? Name three things you can see at this moment.

I am sitting at my desk and the three things I can see are my hands typing, my telephone, and a box of envelopes. Exciting huh?

Charles Schultz Philosphy

My cousin from Australia sent this to me today and I appreciated the message it contained. So enjoy....

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the "Peanuts" comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.


The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care.

Pass this on to those people who have made a difference in your life. "Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia." (Charles Schultz)

10 Things I can't live without.........

1. While most of my friends will think # 1 is ketchup, they are wrong. Its them... I can not go with out time with The Sisters. If I go on vacation, I have been known to call The Sisters, even for a short chat. Usually to pull me back from the edge of insanity.

2. Internet. Sad as it is, I start to twitch if I have had no access to the internet to check my e-mail, for a few days. I am sure there is a therapy group for that.

3. Make-Up. Its definitely an addiction, there is no other word for it. I have more than I can wear. I will not run out for at least 5 years. I can count on one hand how many times I have left the house without it.

4. My Feather Bed Pillow Top. Yes I am a princess, and proud of it! I am the princess and the pea, people. Of the fluffy soft goodness of this haven I call my bed.

5. An Assortment of Shoes and Purses. I like to color coordinate, there I said it. I can't stand someone wearing a black outfit and having a brown purse or shoes. Its a sin, check the bible.

6. A nail file. I have currently obtained finger nails after a 26 year battle with nail biting. I didn't realize the other side to nail biting was obsessive nail filing.

7. My red couch. Its big, comfy, and red!! Perfect for sitting, laying, cuddling....... tee hee and other things.

8. Tivo. I would never watch TV at all if I didn't have Tivo. It has given me the ability to discover new shows and make me an addict. Is there a meeting for that?

9.Hummus. BestFriend Tiff, I am sure is rolling her eyes at this point, but its true, its one of my favorite foods.

10. Books. I love to read and there are days that TV just doesn't draw you in as a great book can.

Lessons Learned......In Vegas

I like to learn and am always open to new experiences. So here are a few things I learned in Vegas this past weekend.

When flying in on a Friday night, be prepared to wait at least an hour in the taxi line to get to your hotel.

Regardless of how many Red Bulls you have, if you are exhausted. Nothing and I mean nothing will keep you awake.

Never, ever, walk the strip in flip flops. Just take my word for it.

Always take advantage of Happy Hour, and definitely take advantage of the 2 for 1 offer at the bar, hell if you won't drink the second drink, 9 times out of ten your bartender will.

After 2 for 1 Happy Hour at the bar, do not, I repeat do not go get ready for a night if the getting ready part requires shaving. Bleeding lessens the amount of alcohol in your blood stream. And I am not one to waste.

Chlorine and alcohol do not mix, neither do the Lazy River and a few cocktails. The around and around and around motion. Blurp.

When taking a camera, make sure that it is in your possession for the entirety of the trip. You do not want to get home and realize that you left your camera with your friends for the evening and see what they have decided to photograph.

Hair of the dog is a good rule to live by, a drink in the morning will make all your pains go away. Just don't attempt to walk a straight line. There is no straight line in Vegas.

And last but not least, never ever leave your group, its a jungle out there and you may never find them again. But the possibility of meeting a new attractive bachelor party group is very easy. :)

So I lied........

Dear Iff' and Real F's ( teehee) I have mislead you. Though I did have good intentions. I truly meant to blog last night, however there was a good reason that I didn't.

In my defense, I was exhausted (insert big grin here). And it was all worth it (the exhaustion that is). That's all you get on that, nope don't even try.

So by the time I had put in a full day of work yesterday and made it home, I could barely see straight with exhaustion. However my day wasn't quite over. It was Dinner with Dad night, a regular Wednesday evening occurrence. So I get the movies to watch and the food out to cook. Knowing I was exhausted, take out might have been a good call in this situation. On a normal fully awake functioning day, I can cook, with out too many mishaps. However when I am exhausted, its more of an "eat at your own risk" situation. Well last night was no different. I should have put down the frying pan and picked up the telephone. But I felt that I might disappoint my dad, so I went against my better judgment. All I have to say is lesson learned.

Last nights menu consisted of pot stickers and Pad Thai. What I ended up with was blackstickers, and glop. I could smell the potstickers burning and yet left them there thinking, oh they will survive another few minutes. HA! The Pad Thai noodles managed to form one giant lump, making it difficult to mix in the pork and egg. Think chow mein more than Pad Thai. So the house smell like burnt... just burnt, I can't even come up with a good word to describe it. And lets not forget the glob, that I can use to spackle with if the urge strikes. And bless my dad's heart, the only thing he said was, " Just needs a little Hot sauce". As if that will magically repair the crap that was on my plate. I am pretty sure my mom's dogs would whimper in fear at the sight of this in their bowls.

So after that fiasco, I couldn't bring myself to blog, having felt like a failure, it was off to bed. ( Yeah right- I was just so stinking tired)
