I'm bouncing off the walls again...

Brought to you by: Amorous Rocker

Whats a word that starts with the third letter of your first name?
Ha, we'll use my blog name for this. Ornate. ;)

What were you doing at ten last night?

Do you have a blog crush? If so, care to say who?
I might and nope. Not today anyway. ;) =p

When was the last time you had dinner with your father?
Wednesday night.

What kind of chocolate is your favorite?
Dark chocolate is the only kind I like. I'm not a fan of chocolate really though. Caramel though... mmm.

Have you ever had sex in a hotel with the last person you had sex with?

How long do you have until your birthday?
Less than one month. June 15th y'all!

What do you want for your next birthday?

Has anyone upset you in the last week?

What's bothering you right now?
This thing, that thing, the other thing.

Would you rather drive a moped or a minivan?
Minivan. At least when it rains, I won't get soaked. I could totally rock a minivan, lol.

The last time you were really annoyed, what caused that to happen?
A guy was really pissing me off by being an obnoxious shit head.

The last person that really annoyed you, what are two things that annoy you most about them?
He has an opinion about everything and his opinion IS the right one.
He talks to everyone like they're 70 IQ points dumber than he is.
He's been there, done that and did it better than you... with almost everything.
He has tantrums when he gets pissed off or annoyed.
You cannot say anything around him without him wanting to stick his nose in and know what's being said and then gets bitchy when you tell him, "Don't worry about it" because it's none of his beeswax.

Okay that was more than two but whatever. This is all fresh on my mind and I can't decide which things annoy me most.

Who are your last 5 text messages from?
Boyfriend, my dad and Philly.

How many times have you gotten into a argument with the last person you spoke in person with?
Countless. Some times they're good natured arguments. Other times, they're very unpleasant. We always work through them.

Have you ever had a panic attack?
Yeah. I almost had one on Monday night when we were walking the bridge. I have issues with bridges and setting foot on them.

Would you date someone who lived in another state?
I do but we were in the same state before I moved, lol. So yeah. I don't think I would try to start a relationship with someone who was in another state.

If you were kicked out of your current residence, what would you do?
Pack up all my important shit, call a cab, head to the airport, get a ticket back home to Texas and then I'd kill time in the airport by calling people to figure out who could pick me and my stuff up, lol.

Do you think relationships are hard?
They can be, yeah. Nothing really worth it ever comes completely easy though. A lot of hard work goes into making a relationship works but it's worth it.

Do you think you have made a substantial difference in any one's life?
I don't know.... I think so.

When was the last time you wanted to punch someone in the face?
All of the time at work, lol. =D

Do you think money buys happiness?

Do you understand football?
Oh yeah. I love football. =D

Who is your favorite basketball team?
Dallas Mavericks!

What sport do you love playing?
Basketball, baseball and hockey.

What kind of phone do you have?
A Samsung Propel.

Do you sing obnoxiously in the car?
I only sing obnoxiously when I'm just fooling around and acting dumb.

Do you know a guy named David?
Quite a few. =)

When is your birthday?

Ever had a near death experience?
A few. So far, I'm winning.

I'm so happy without you...

It's time for Fuck You Friday! Know what I'm saying fuck you to today?

Backseat drivers.

I can't stand that.

Especially when you're in a city the backseat driver has never even been in before and they STILL think they can direct you every place you need to go. Even though they couldn't tell you where anything is there, they still want to go running their jaws off like an idiot.

I can't stand the backseat driver that chimes in half the car ride with directions and comments about how you should be driving or turn here or blah blah blah but when they do it almost constantly every minute or two? Oh my gosh! Especially when you can't insult them or tell them to zip it enough times to get them to stop it because insulting them and/or telling them to shut their know it all fucking mouth does nothing because they just don't care.

Pretending to ignore them works okay though. If they're not one to do it constantly but just here and there, I can handle that.

Someone who does it continually and doesn't shut up though? Being a sarcastic little ass makes me feel a little better some times too. Like when they warn you to get out of a lane because you some how might not see that big ass FedEx/UPS truck parked in the street or telling you to pick another street because hey, you can't go back down a one way street in the opposite direction. Then a smart ass comment to follow those necessary tips might shut them up for a couple minutes. Maybe.

Oh and no, I've never been a driver having to deal with a backseat driver. Only an annoyed passenger wishing the driver would say shut the hell up since the backseat driver doesn't listen to other passengers. Even when they're threatening maiming and death.

Even when I want to go nuts on the backseat driver that constantly feels the need to chime in every few minutes with a new direction or some other notion, if the actual driver is ignoring them and asks me to just bear with it and try to tune them out, I'll be nice. Actually, I'll just be respectful to the driver and skip out on finding some object in the car to smash over the mouthy little passenger's head.

We hear folks in the city party in Martini Bars...

I transferred the camera pictures over to my computer and I'm going to post a few of those here. When I get the ones off my digital camera uploaded, I'll post a link on here for y'all to go see. I'll be uploading those to my neglected Flickr account, lol. I take way too many pictures. Goodness.

I neglected to mention where it was we would be taking a road trip too when I mentioned we were heading out Tuesday morning. One of my favorite cities is San Francisco. I've been there. I have a friend who lives there (but he's on an extended stay in Amsterdam right now, lucky ass) and another who recently just moved from there. I fell in love with that city the first day I was in it. I know a lot of people can't stand it, a lot of people think this this and that about it, blah blah blah. Whatever, I don't care. A lot of people think California as a whole is a great state but we won't debate that right now, lol. Anyway... A few years ago, I actually contemplated moving there. I probably would have had lack of money and the inability to find an available, affordable apartment not been an issue. Things work out how they do for whatever reasons, I didn't move there and I met my boyfriend instead shortly there after. I can't complain about that at all. Back to the present.

We got there early Tuesday. We stayed at the Parc55 Hotel. It was pretty sweet. I totally plan to stay there again next time I'm in San Fran and have the need for a hotel room.


Here are a few shots from the room.

Our view from the 16th floor:

Our room television. I had it on Discovery, one of my favorite channels while CL ironed a shirt and Boyfriend took a quick shower.:

The super comfy beds that I wanted to steal the pillows and bedding off of when we were leaving Wednesday afternoon. Me and boyfriend with our backpacks had the left and CL and his bulky suitcase had the right:

The hotel bar. The lighting was too dim but they had an awesome set up. Totally classy but very warm and comfortable as well. We were watching ESPN while we had some drinks:

And this is probably the best Mojito I've ever had in my life and I've had a LOT of Mojitos before but DAMN, this one was so good I actually drank it slowly so I could make it last and really enjoy it, lol:

Boyfriend had to check out Alcatraz (pictures later to be uploaded to my Flickr) and of course, the sea lions:

Later in the night Tuesday, after walking a shit load and riding street cars all over the place, we headed back to the hotel and changed clothes. It was time for some fun times involving alcohol, loud music and whatever else. First, food. All the walking will get your tummy rumbling ya know. ;) We debated over a few places but settled on a place and set off in the general direction of the place we settled on. While walking, we passed something else and decided we would rather his that place instead since it looked cool, lol. After checking the menu outside, we decided to go in to Lori's Diner. It's a 50's style place, you enter downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. They have a wide variety of breakfast and dinner items on the menu and they serve stuff you would expect to find in a place themed after a 50's diner. It was a cool atmosphere, friendly people and the food was good.:


Wednesday morning, after we checked out of the hotel, we went driving around and ended up at the Golden Gate Bridge. Neither Boyfriend or CL had ever been to SF before and it was something they wanted to see. I didn't mind. I love going and seeing everything there, even if I've seen it before.:

Shortly after that, we headed back through SF for the last time. We got some lunch and then started the trip back to where I live currently. We got back Wednesday evening in time for the barbecue my family was having.

Also in time to see the third period and the OT for game 5 of the Detroit and Chicago game. I can't believe I'm saying this and can't believe I've been doing this but, I've been cheering for Detroit to win the series. I knew the Pens were going to take out the Canes and didn't want to see the Blackhawks face the Pens. It's a rematch of last years Stanley Cup and I'm not sure which team I hope for a win out of. I don't like Detroit and I don't really like Pittsburgh either. Both teams have a few players I particularly like (Henriq Zetterberg, Niklas Lidstrom and Brian Rafalski for Detroit & Max Talbot, Miroslav Satan and Marc-Andre Fleury
for Pittsburgh) though. So, meh. It should be a damn good series though. Too bad I have to miss most of the games due to work. At least I can follow them here and there on my cell though. ;)

Happy Thursday!

Nobody wants to be the last one there...

Boyfriend is here. =) He's been here several days actually.

I've been too busy running around with him and CL the last few days in between working and sleeping to do much online. I haven't done the sleep thing much either but luckily I don't require a lot of that stuff. Fun times. =D

We're embarking on a mini road trip right now. I'm just waiting for the boys to be ready to go, lol. So no real post today and I'll probably not have much tomorrow even though we'll be back tomorrow evening. Though I will update tomorrow night so I can play Wednesday Weirdness probably.  Might even have some cool pictures to show off too. ;) 

We went on a little exploration trip last night and I got some cool pictures of what we ventured out to see. So I'll have to post those soon too. 

Watching guys try to skip rocks and fail misrerably is slightly entertaining by the way. ;)

Have a great day y'all!

X is just to mark the spot because that's the one you really want...

BoldWhy aren’t you with the person you were first in love with?
I'm smart. Ha! Also because things didn't work out between us and ultimately, that was for the best.

If the year consisted of only one season, which would you choose?
Spring or Fall, definitely.

How are you feeling?
I feel like tacos. Mmmm, tacos.

Has anyone ever told you that you resemble a celebrity?
Yeah, several. One I don't get (well technically I don't get/see any of the ones that get mentioned!) is Christina Ricci. Seriously people? She's pretty damn hot.

How would you feel if your last ex fell in love with someone else?
I wouldn't feel anything due to the fact that I wouldn't know because I never speak to him nor do I care what he does as long as he leaves me alone, lol.

What is a movie you can quote?
"Don't be so unkind. You may not survive to pass this way again, and these be the last friendly words you'll hear...."

Do you dress for style or comfort?
I dress for comfort and whatever I like. Never stylish or trendy but I really don't care.

Have you ever been given a rose?
Do not give me a rose. I hate roses.

Who's the last person you got in a yelling fight with?
A friend.

Is anyone in your family in the military?
Yeah, a few.

Do you own a pair of slippers?

Would you run around your neighborhood at night for 5 minutes without a shirt on for $1,000?
Hell yeah!

Which one of your friends would you swap eyes with, if you had to?
Fangs. He has such pretty eyes. Or any of them that have green eyes.

Would you ever get your nipples pierced?
Been there, done that. Might do it again.

Has someone ever spread a nasty rumor about you?
Yeah but whatever. People talk, I don't care what most of them say and the people who really matter don't listen to petty gossip and ridiculous rumors.

Are you easy to get along with?

Would you rather pierce your tongue or lip?
Tongue. I don't think I would look good with a lip ring sadly.

Were you ever been sent to the office at school because your outfit was inappropriate for school?
Nah, lol.

What's usually colder, your hands or your feet?
Feet! They're like ice.

Do you like competition?
Yes, I do.

Do you Twitter?
Yes, I do. Do you?

Do you like hot, spicy foods?

What is your favorite type of material when it comes to bedsheets?
Jersey knit cotton or high thread count Egyptian cotton. Mmm. My bed is a sanctuary.

What is your favorite sweet treat?
Ice cream!

Do you think making out is slutty?
Generally, no. Making out is hot. During a funeral, while you're in a church service, during a wedding ceremony where you're neither of the two being wed; totally tasteless and trashy.

What is keeping you warm right now?
Socks, pajama pants and your girlfriend my UT Longhorns blanket.

Do you have any dirty pictures on your cellphone?
If by "dirty" you mean "impressive and astounding" then yes, yes I do.

Happy Saturday!

E is for the ecstasy....

At work, we use limes a lot. We make a lot of drinks that have lime and that generally requires me to squeeze a fresh lime or two in the almost finished product. You know what I hate? When you have a cut on your finger or your hand and don't realize you have a cut. Then you go to squeeze a lime and BAM! You now know there's a tiny little cut of some sort where some small amount of lime juice just ran in. I hate that and it happens at least a couple times a week at work. I also hate when I squeeze and the lime juice squirts up into my eye. Ouch! That's a good way to kill your eye make-up and irritate your eye.

Last night at work was so busy. I worked 4:30 pm to close but it didn't seem like a long time. We were so busy the time just flew by quickly. We also could have used two more people on the floor to help things run a bit more smoothly and quickly but it was kind of fun in chaos and having so much to do and being overwhelmed at times helped the time go by even more quickly. We were behind at the end of the night but we caught up on getting everything cleaned and stocked up and made it out by 12:40 am. I hope the weather stays nice all weekend. People come out more when the weather is nice and I like being busy. *grin* The only thing that sucked was that I had to clean one of the frozen drink machines and I got my hand messed up twisting the center piece with the blades back in. One of my fingers got caught between a metal part and something and I scraped some skin off and maybe sprained my finger. Kinda hurts but not so bad. Stupid frozen drink machines! I hate cleaning those things. They're such a pain in the ass.

Check this out...

The cherries we've had at work lately are so big, lol. Granted, I don't have very large hands but seriously, that is one big cherry! Everyone at work who eats cherries has been snagging these and eating way too many. Including me. I eat a few cherries most nights anyway because well, I love cherries. Mmmm.

I get to see my boyfriend tonight! Of course, he gets in while I'm at work but he's going to come up to my job and get a drink and some food. Oh and visit with me a little bit too. ;) I'm excited though. CL is coming with him but CL is only staying a few days. He just wants to visit, check out the beach and some girls and some stuff worth seeing. It'll be nice seeing him too.

I love fresh clean sheets. It feels so good to come home after work, take a nice shower and then slip into bed with fresh, clean sheets. They still smell like fabric softener and they're so soft and comfy feeling.

About that shower though... I was so tired by the time I got home. I worked my ass off at work and the night before, I hadn't slept much and what I didn't sleep wasn't very restful. So I was tiiired. I'm standing under the shower head, enjoying the warm water cascading down my body. I was washing my hair and then rinsing it. I stood there a minute and just enjoyed the warmth of the water as it fell over me and relaxed me. After about five minutes, I finally moved again to grab the body wash and the puffy thing I use with the body wash. I started cleaning my body off and when I got to my legs and then to my feet, I realized that the water wasn't draining. I was standing in the shower with the non-draining water about two inches over my ankles and not very far from the top of the tub. I seriously was so tired and relaxed that I hadn't noticed the water wasn't draining until I had gone to scrub my legs and feet. Oops, lol. I semi freaked out and went to find out why the hell the damn thing wasn't draining and found out the stopper must have fallen off the ledge without me noticing and actually landed right in the position it would be in if I were trying to hold in the water. Oops. Seriously don't know why it took me so long to realize the damn water wasn't draining. At least I noticed before it was over flowing into the floor. ;)

Happy Friday!

S is for the simple need....

I get to see my boyfriend this weekend! I get to see my boyfriend this weekend! I just saw him for 9 days in April but whatever, it's about time to see him again. On Monday, the 25th, it will be our 3 year anniversary. Aww. I'm not too big on celebrating anniversaries honestly but my guy likes to do it so I don't mind. It makes him happy and we end up having fun so it's all good.

I got this pretty cool looking wrist cuff yesterday. It caught my eye because I thought it looked like Tetris blocks and I freely admit it, I'm a Tetris freak. I'm addicted to that game. I also rock at it.

Something else that caught my eye was a pretty awesome key chain. I'm not one of those types who has a million dangling things on their key chain. That shit annoys me. I have several keys, an angel key ring and a mini bottle opener that I've had on there since I was 16, lol. That bottle opener has served me well and continues to do so! When I saw this thing though, I had to have it.


Cool huh? I thought so. Fitting too. =) And yeah, I'm totally wearing lipstick in that third picture and it's NOT black lipstick. Which is something I rarely ever do. Lip balm, I wear every day to keep my lips all soft and smooch friendly. Lip gloss, I wear sometimes when I go out. Lipstick that's black, I wear when I'm going out and it's fitting with what's going on. Lipstick that's not black? I can count on one hand the number of times I've worn that, including this one, lol. I still just prefer to wear lip balm. I like the natural color of my lips so I never see much need to add more color to them. Unless it's black then you know... that's fine. =)

I've got some new ideas bouncing around in my head. Of course I don't want to say what they are right now but they've got potential I think. I came up with one of these ideas just yesterday and I'm starting to look in to how I can make it work. If I end up getting it all together, y'all will totally know about it. I have to advertise somewhere for free you know. ;) I'm excited though.

Happy Thursday y'all!!!!!

Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes ...

*^ Click to play! ^*
Questions By: Another Suburban Mom

1. If your boss says, "I would like to talk to you about your internet usage" what would your first reaction be?

I'd tell him to piss off. I make drinks for a living and the only computer I use at work is the one to ring orders in to which has nothing to do with the interwebs. Internet usage would be a personal subject that wouldn't be discussed between us at work, lol.

2. If you SO asks you "Does this make me look fat?" how do you answer?

My boyfriend never asks me that question! Lol.

I've personally NEVER asked that question, not even once. I hate questions like that. If you want to fish for a compliment for whatever reason, why not ask, "Don't you think this dress looks rockin' on me babe?" I just don't get it. Anyway...

I've never dated a guy who has asked me that. I'd probably say, "No, it's your beer belly that makes the shirt look fat."

3. What is one thing that you pay for, but resent having to do so?

Nothing really. I thought on this for several minutes and couldn't think of anything.

4. A day is being created in honor of you. How should we celebrate it?

First, we sleep in until about noon and then we watch hockey while having margaritas and Mexican food. Then we go to do something outside like maybe swimming or play a baseball game. Then we have a 4 to 5 hour movie marathon with a comedy followed by a fast paced action flick. Then there shall be rum, loud music, pizza, billiards, dancing and hot naked women doing what hot naked women do. Then sex and blissful slumber for all to end the day.

Though I just realized, this is generally how I celebrate my birthday, lol. Just added a bit more since hockey isn't going during my birthday and I don't ever do the movie marathon. The rest is pretty much how I like my birthday celebration to go, bwa ha ha.

5. What CD or Album in your music collection do you secretly enjoy, but would be embarrassed if others heard you grooving to it?

Nothing. Not everyone is going to like what I like just as I don't like everything they like. I don't feel shame in liking something I get enjoyment out of, even if it's Flo Rida, a Britney Spears song or a song by a long lost 80's band. I like what I like and don't get embarrassed by anything I listen to.

6. How long do you think you would last if you were a contestant on Survivor?

I don't watch that show. I wouldn't want to be on it though, I don't think. I'll do a lot of things for money but reality shows aren't on that list weirdly enough. I doubt I'd last long. I'd probably lose on purpose just to escape the drama. I'm not a people person despite being outgoing and I totally would miss my warm showers and sex with someone who doesn't smell like a foot or worse.

I've had this song stuck in my since I heard it yesterday. You ever hear a song and it just hits you deeply the first time you listen to it? I heard this song the first time yesterday. I think they released it on Monday actually, lol. So I listened to it yesterday and it clicked with a lot of thoughts in my head. It was like a connecting thing where it just slammed into my thoughts and it's not a sad song really but it made me sad at first. I can't explain it how I mean it so I'm not going to try. I like the song a lot. I love Chester Bennington's voice too. I just realized how old I was when I first started listening to Linkin Park and holy shit, I was jailbait when I started listening to them.

I had to stop listening to them for a short time. When my friend Stace died when I was 18, I couldn't listen to LP without thinking of her and thinking of her just made me sad because she died so young and so senselessly. I wrote a post about her once. I don't remember if it's here or the old blog. She was such a huge LP fan though. She was almost obsessed with them and I linked them with her because she was the only friend I had who was really into them like I was. Actually, she was more into them than I was. After she died from being hit by a drunk driver, I had a hard time listening to them because it would remind me of her. Then I would remember she wouldn't ever hear them again and wouldn't ever have another fun memory doing another thing again. Which also reminded me her young daughter had to grow up not knowing her amazing mother. Yeah, I stopped listening to LP for about a year because I didn't like thinking about her.

I can listen to them now and it doesn't always make me think of Stace. Sometimes it does though and when it does, it makes me a little sad and a little angry but then I'm okay and I just enjoy the music for what it is without emotionally tripping over things.

Happy Wednesday!

I'm wild and a little crazy too....

I love blowing bubbles.

I hate blueberries.

I love when my boyfriend and I are laying in bed, about to fall asleep and he kisses me on the base of my neck.

I don't get stressed out easily. It takes a lot to make me crack.

I'm stronger than most people think I am.

The smell of mayonnaise makes me nauseous.

I've never been to a tanning salon and will never go to one. I don't give a shit about being tan. Any added color to my skin is just from running around outside.

I don't sunburn. Even when I forget to use sunscreen.

I have no personal drama in my life that directly affects me. I hate drama and avoid people who thrive on it, cause it or enjoy it's presence. Fuck that shit. Life is too short to waste your time playing he said she said or dicking around over petty bullshit and gossip.

Carrots are my favorite vegetable. Raw or cooked. Plain or dipped in salad dressing. Mmmm.

My favorite time to have sex is... any time I'm awake. Morning, noon, afternoon, evening, midnight, 3 AM. It's all good.

People often think I don't take anything seriously. That's not true. I take the appropriate things seriously enough when need be. I see no point in stressing over things that aren't important though.

Australian accents are so sexy.

I love accents.

I don't eat the icing on cake. I prefer my cake without icing. Naked cake, yes sir.

I'm not a big fan of chocolate at all. I really only like dark chocolate.

Cheese is far superior to chocolate. I love cheese.

One Valentine's Day, I drank a whole bottle of champagne on my own. Boyfriend didn't like the taste but I loved it. It was almost the best part of the day. If that pesky hot hot hotel sex hadn't claimed the "best thing about today" slot, that champagne would have ranked first.

I hate the game Twister.

I also don't like Parcheesi, Scrabble, Chess, Boggle and Taboo. To name a few.

Happy Tuesday!

Dude looks like a lady...

Brought to you by: Amorous Rocker

Is there a television commercial for a food product that makes you want to go eat it right when you see it?
Okay, weird thing here. Those Hidden Valley Ranch commercials make me want ranch dressing so when I see those I want to go eat carrot sticks or something so I can have some ranch, lol.

Are you medicated right now?
I fucking wish! I need some allergy medicine something bad.

Do you blow dry your hair?
Mostly no. Only if I want to straighten it out or if it's cold out.

Can you see a stuffed animal from where you're sitting?
Nope, lol.

How old do people guess you are?
Usually between 17 and 20, even though I'll be 24 in a little less than a month now.

Do you still talk to your friends from elementary school?
Only one but we weren't friends in elementary school. We didn't become friends until we were teenagers, lol.

Would you rather have ice cream or cake for dessert?
Ice cream cake! If I can't have that, definitely ice cream. I looove love love ice cream.

Your best friend tells you they are pregnant... what's your reaction?
I take pictures and totally exploit my buddy because my best friend is a dude and if he's pregnant, I'm making some fucking money off of that shit.

Do you have a ceiling fan in your room, and if so, is there dust on that fan?
No fan and there wouldn't be dust if I had one.

What was the last voice mail you received about?
This chick from work asking me to work for her because she was "sick" and needed someone to take her shift. Which oddly enough, she had complained two days prior saying she didn't want to work that night. Funny how they always get sick so conveniently. ;)

What has been your most embarrassing moment so far?
The day I was born. I was in a room full of people I don't know totally naked, crying my head off and covered in goop. Talk about embarrassing.... ;)

Where is the person who has your heart at the moment?
Right here, typing this shit out. My heart's still chillin' inside me. I don't think it would be such a hot idea to go pulling it out and handing it to anyone. The whole dying from a gaping hole in my chest isn't appealing. Plus, talk about a lousy gift

When you're in the shower about to wash your hair, do you put shampoo in your left or right hand?
Depends on which hand I pick the bottle up with.

Have you ever been leaning in a chair, leaned back too far and toppled over?
Not that I can remember. I don't lean back in chairs that can topple over though, lol.

What does your last text message from a girl say?
Normally I would not answer this question but since my cell is sitting right here.... "I'm going to crash out now sexy girl, text me tomorrow and let me know how the rest of your boring work night goes lol" -from The Evil Mistress

What was the last song you sang out loud?
One of the songs from Pirates of the Caribbean, lol.

Did you see anyone yesterday that you wish you hadn't?
Yeah some annoying ass customers and some lazy, annoying co-workers.

Have you seen the last guy you got a text from naked?
Yes, yes I have, haha. ;)

Your ex runs into you and hugs you, what do you do?
Junk-punch him all up in his man business.

Be honest, did you watch the Hannah Montana Movie?

What is the best thing about your job?
Uh... I get a paycheck twice a month. That's my favorite thing about it.

Have you ever had a real life stalker?
Yes. That shit sucks.

Have you ever gone to a party where you were the only sober one?
Me? Sober at a party? *chuckles*

Name one band that is still together that you've always wanted to see perform live but probably never will?

What movie did you watch last?
Mrs. Doubtfire. It was on HBO Family and nothing else was on. Plus, I always crack up when Robin Williams sets his tits on fire, bwa ha ha.

Even in madness I know you still believe....

Playing the piano is very relaxing to me. I love to play. The music fills my mind and my soul. Stress and tension flows out of my body as my fingers glide across the keys. Listening to someone play well is just as relaxing. I love listening to a piano being played and could listen for hours. Laying out somewhere, eyes closed, just letting the music wash over me and tickle my senses. My iPod has a few instrumental pieces that contain piano compositions. I have a mix of classical music as well. I find the piano to be the most soothing, relaxing and beautiful of any instrument. The violin is beautiful too. I love laying in bed, eyes closed, ear buds in with soothing music pouring out into my ears when I'm finding it difficult to sleep. When I have too much on my mind and that causes sleep to escape me, I can count on the soothing sounds to help me fall asleep. They relax me so much and if I let the music fill my head, focus only on that, it distracts me long enough to help me fall blissfully into slumber.

I get to see my boyfriend soon! Which is awesome, of course. I get to spend time with him and go out to do some things I don't do normally. Pretty much, I work and hang out at home out here. Not so fun, lol.

I also get to go to the beach soon. Boyfriend and I will be going at some point when he's here. I'm sure the water is still going to be a bit cold but I bet I'll find myself in it anyway. ;) I don't go to the beach and not get in the water at least a little bit. I'll have to remember to take my camera for some awesome pictures too.

I was writing a book full of short stories for a while and then I stopped. I wasn't happy with it and was convinced I wouldn't get anyone to buy it anyway. Some insanely encouraging people have me feeling better about that though. Also, I want to try again. Part of my giving it up was a fear I would just fail. Never completing what I started is a failure in itself to me though. If I finish it, at least I finished what I started and at least I tried.

My birthday is exactly a month away. WOW! Lol.

I'll be 24 and people still think I look like a teenager. At the concert Wednesday night, I got patted down by the security woman while they let my mom pass. She said my mom didn't look dangerous. My mom asked if I looked dangerous. The woman replied, "At that age, they are all dangerous." My mom told the woman I was almost 24 and the woman did a double take and didn't believe my mom. Once my age was confirmed, she just shook her head and said, "Lucky her!" I get carded to buy R-rated movies in Wal-Mart. I've been carded to buy cough syrup before since you know, high school kiddos get high guzzling DayQuil. I have issues at times when I want to buy liquor depending on the store and how strict they are about being lawful and carding people. I almost always get carded for cigarettes. I have never once got carded in sex toy stores adult novelty shops though despite being with others who have been carded the moment they walked through the door, lol.

Hockey time! Boston and Anaheim were both eliminated yesterday. It's down to the Hurricanes and the Penguins in the East and the Red Wings and the Blackhawks in the West. I hope the Canes get the east and for the West, I'm actually having a hard time deciding which team I want to see make it to the fight for Stanley. Sad stuff though, hockey is about over. We have one more round in the playoffs to go through to knock out two more teams and then the other two will battle it out for the Stanley. Then one team will win and hockey will be done this season. Sadness I tell you!

The Mavericks got knocked out in Round two of the NBA Playoffs by fucking Denver. Not talking about that. At least we got passed round one this season though. AND we knocked out the Spurs in round one to get to round two so HA! I know the Spurs are a Texas team too but I can't stand them. Hell fucking yes for knocking out the Spurs and making it to round two! Even if we lost in round two, lol.


That's all y'all!

Happy Friday!

Oh I never gave up on you....

Yesterday, I made a post asking for y'all to tell me your opinion on love at first sight. I got a dozen responses and I was happy about that. I always enjoy finding out what others think about certain topics. It's always interesting to see who believes in what and why. In the post, I said I would answer my own question today. So, here I am. =o)

I don't believe in love at first sight. I just don't. Love is such a complex thing. I don't think you can have something so complex happen in a glance.

I believe in lust at first sight.

I believe in instant attraction at first sight.

I believe in chemistry happening the moment you talk to someone.

I believe in infatuation at first sight.

I believe that you can see someone and be smitten with them the moment you see them. I believe that if you talk and there's attraction, lust and chemistry there present immediately or almost immediately that you can start feeling hopeful. It's a crush, infatuation, chemistry, desire, wanting, hope for something more.
Giddy anticipation, your heart skipping a beat, your breath catching in your throat, seeing stars, feeling like you're floating, butterflies in your stomach and all the mushy, sweet things in the world. It's real and they're all very valid and beautiful emotions but I don't think it's love when you don't even know the person. I think you can feel all the things I just listed and that can make you feel like you're in love. Especially if all of those things happen right away and then things progress beautifully and you do end up in love with that person.

Love is so much more than you can pick up in 5 minutes. I've known my boyfriend for 4 years and come May 25th, we'll have been together for 3 years. It took me much longer than 5 minutes to love him. Love is deeply complex and it's more than giddy feelings, butterflies, attraction, lust, infatuation and chemistry. Don't get me wrong, I think all of those things are part of falling in love but I don't think falling in love within minutes of seeing someone is possible. I just don't.

Of course, if you believe differently from me, that's fine. Whatever works for you. Everything I stated is just my own personal opinion on the subject. ;) I'm just cynical perhaps. Okay, I am cynical and I'm not a romantic either. Respect my stance and I'll respect yours, even if we don't agree. =) Thanks to everyone who left a comment on the post yesterday. I appreciate it. Y'all rock!

I have misplaced my new toy some how. Maybe it got true to it's butterfly form flew away? Lol. Seriously, I don't have a lot of options of where it could be. I hide them in two places and two places only and it's in neither of those places. I hope I didn't accidentally throw it away when I was rushed and cleaning out one of the hiding places I use. Hmmm.

Last night I got to see one of my favorite bands play live. The opening band SUCKED. I think they are definitely one of the worst bands I have ever seen play. Had I not been on the rail, I would have left during their set because they were so awful. When you get there early and get a spot on the rail, you don't leave unless you have someone there to hold your spot. You'll never get that spot on the rail back, lol. For anyone unfamiliar with being in the pit, the rail is the barrier set there that keeps the crowd back from the stage. It's about 6 to 8 feet away from the stage generally and it's the closest you can get. Land a spot there and people will push and shove trying to get you off there and take your spot. I kept my spot. I got some awesome shots too. I always get a tad bit apprehensive at shows just before the bands I like come on. I always worry about how a band sounds live when I've never seen them before, especially when it's one I LOVE. If they sound like shit, it's going to bum me out. Luckily, I was not disappointed. The metal band I saw has beautiful music and their vocalist has an amazing, gorgeous voice. I had such a good time. =) My mom went to the show as well. She enjoyed herself, save for the first band which she didn't enjoy at all. She bypassed a seat to stand in the pit and held up just fine on the rail too. ;)

Happy Thursday!

Pour another drink in my glass....

Before I get to the meme today, I have a question for you dear readers. What is your take on love at first sight? Do you think it's possible? Tomorrow, I am going to answer my own question but the post will take me more time than I have right now. I need to get some damn sleep, I have plans for the night that involve a drive out of town and a hopefully fun night. I know I won't be able to explain all my points quickly though and I'll need more time to word out my response. Also, I want to be able to include some points from other people, such as anyone who comments and makes a point I want to include. I'll email you and let you know if I use your comment in tomorrow's post as well. So for today, I want to hear what y'all have to say about it. Love at first sight with another person, is it possible? And please explain why you feel the way you do.

Now, on to the weirdness!

Wednesday Weirdness #55
Questions By: Amorous Rocker

1.) What are your least favorite sounds?
Anything scraping against metal. Alarm clocks. Crickets. Children from outside screaming their obnoxious little heads off in the early hours of the morning.

2.) Do you enjoy reading infidelity blogs? Why? If you don't, is there any reason why you don't?
I'm intrigued in a way by them. I don't read any one with any form of regularity but they interest me. I like to understand things that people do. It's interesting to see the dynamics. It's made me see a lot more and sort of understand things in many different points of view. None of it has ever changed my own personal view on the subject but it's interesting to see things from another view and gain a little more in depth understanding to it.

3.) If you could make one frivolous purchase right now without expense being an option, what one thing would you go buy?
So many options here. I think I would pay to get the rest of my oral surgery done. Does that count? Lol. Of course that isn't really frivolous so I'll say send me a Bugatti Veyron please and thank you! Include that insurance paid for life policy too will ya? ;)

4.) Have you ever gotten drunk and then gotten behind the wheel to drive?
NEVER. I was almost killed thanks to a drunk driver when I was kid. I was in the hospital and they didn't think I would make it. I still have physical issues I deal with to this day that are results of an accident that happened almost 20 years ago. I NEVER drive when I'm drunk or tipsy. I despise when people do it. It's stupid and reckless and you're not the only life you're dumb ass is endangering by doing it.

5.) As an adult, have you ever been caught having sex by someone you didn't ever want to catch you in the act?
Yes, lol. My boyfriend's mom. We hadn't been together long and it was a little awkward but I ended up just giggling about it. I found it funny. My boyfriend didn't find it as funny, lol.

6.) If your current significant other wound up in jail for no less than 5 years but didn't kill or physically harm anyone, would you wait for them or move on?
I have no clue honestly. I couldn't answer that unless I were in the situation. It would really depend on what he did. If it were something I could live with and something that I just didn't find wrong, then maybe.

7.) If you had to participate, would you rather be in a mud wrestling competition or a JellO wrestling competition?
JellO! Definitely JellO. Seems more fun. I don't like the stuff but if JellO got up my nose or in my mouth, I wouldn't be as grossed out by that as I would be if I got mud up my nose or in my mouth.

Some people, baby, it's something I don't understand....

I know people go out to eat for a variety of reasons. No time to cook a meal, they just feel like going out, it's more convenient, they can't cook, they're not in the mood to cook, they're not in the mood to have to prep, cook and clean up, etc etc etc. I'm all fine with that. Without those reasons and more, people would always stay home for their meals and drinks and if they never went out, I wouldn't have a job. I don't mind working in the service industry. A lot of people look down on it, a lot of people think a lot of bullshit about it. Whatever, fuck you. What I do hate is people who come in, make a huge mess and then leave. Would you fucking use your finger to get excess honey mustard off your chicken at home and then wipe the extra sauce on the table top? I fucking think not. If you do, that's nasty. So why when you go out somewhere else, do you think it's okay to do things like that? Do you throw lettuce and used napkins on the floor at home? Nope, didn't think so. Do you wipe ketchup and other condiments on your table top when you use too much? No? Well, shucks. Oh what's that? When you have ice cream at home, you don't fling whipped cream underneath the table or smear it on top of the table because you got more than you want? You don't let your kids pour condiments out on the table just for kicks at home? You don't chunk your excess bread or uneaten veggies onto the ground underneath the table possibly saving them for another while currently getting them off your plate and out of your sight? Well, I'll be damned!

You don't do that shit at home because A)It's unacceptable behavior. B)It's disgusting and not that sanitary. C)If you or your family make messes like that at home, you're going to have to be the one to fucking clean them up. D)It's fucking disgusting. (Yes, I had to go there twice.)

I get that part of my job is cleaning up after the customers are done at their tables. I get that, really I do. Mostly, I don't mind. Pick up some napkins, some straw wrappers maybe, discard what ever is left and yadda yadda. Seriously though, you don't have to make a huge mess just because you're not the one that has to clean it up. Just because we get paid for our job doesn't mean you can make an even bigger mess either. We have plenty of work to do to keep us busy, you don't need to add on to it by being a disgusting slob.

You don't want pickles on your burger? Fine. When you order it, say you don't want the fucking pickles on it. Don't know what comes on it? ASK. Most of us know our menus pretty well and if you want to know something we don't know about an item, we can always ask someone who does know. You don't want to be a pain with a special order? You're more of a pain when you hold off and then when you get your food just pull off what you don't want and lay it on the table or drop it on the ground. It doesn't magically disappear people. If you won't ask for whatever you don't want on something, get a napkin and put it in there. Use an extra plate and lay it there. Leave it on your own fucking plate and push it to the side. Just don't throw it around.

You got too much ranch on your salad? Too much mayo on your burger? Too much whipped cream on your sundae? Scraping off the extras and then wiping them on top of the table is gross. Do you really want to sit there eating with ranch or some other condiment smeared on your table? I wouldn't. Don't have enough napkins given to you? ASK FOR ME. We have PLENTY and will happily give you more if it means we don't have to scrub at mayo that's been sitting there for 40 minutes.

I get that you're happy you're not having to cook or clean when you go out. Who wouldn't be? It's nice to let someone else worry about that stuff for the night. I don't expect people to clean their own tables up but making a bigger mess than necessary is just ridiculous. It's not just little kids who make these messes. I'm talking teenagers, twenty-somethings and even middle aged people just throwing stuff here and there and wiping gunk everywhere. I even asked a lady once, semi recently, if she needed more napkins because I noticed she was pulling lettuce off her sandwich and tossing it to the ground. She shrugged and said she didn't want any napkins but thanks anyway. The she giggled to her friend and said she wouldn't be cleaning the mess up anyway so what did she care? I pulled out the ice pick then, watching her smug little look crumble right off her bitchy face as I cracked her skull open.... in my imagination.

I know not all servers are nice. Some are bitchy. Some act like they just don't care to be bothered with you. Some would rather flirt with other customers and co-workers. Blah blah blah. Those people suck. Making a mess on your table and the surrounding area isn't the way to get back at a rude server though. Remember, your server isn't always the one who will be cleaning up after you leave. Even if they are going to have to clean it up, they're just going to gripe about it. Want to piss them off for their bad attitude or shitty service? DON'T TIP THEM. That's worse than making a mess they probably won't have to clean up.

Yeah, we're gonna do it hanging upside down...

I have been wanting to try the Micro Butterfly Arouser for some time. I just couldn't get myself to spend to money on something so small. It looked like it would be worth it but I'm a poor bitch and didn't want to spend the money on a toy I wasn't sure I'd like. When I got my third toy from TabuToys in the mail over the weekend, I was totally happy to see this little toy on the cover of the box.

I opened the box, pulled out the toy and laid the contents out on the counter. The butterfly clitoral stimulator is a nice, soft Silicone which made me happy. I'm a big fan of Silicone toys. I love the feel of it. I like how it's soft but still firm too. The butterfly has a little texture to it and the head of the butterfly has two thin little antennas.

The straps, I will admit, confused me for about five seconds and then I figured them out. They're adjustable and stretchy. I was worried that the straps weren't long enough actually. I was worried they wouldn't adjust and stretch properly without tearing the soft toy so I went at it a little apprehensively.
They fit nice and snug with room to work with thankfully. Though in my opinion, the straps could definitely stand to be a little longer given that they're adjustable and stretchy anyway. If you've got large shapely hips and thighs, the straps this toy comes with might present a problem.

I plugged the toy into the power adapter and rolled the dial downwards to turn it on. Then I remembered that toys need batteries or they won't work for you. Oops! In my excitement to try the little butterfly out, I had forgotten to put the three AA batteries it requires in. The batteries go in the adapter so I just had to grab them, put them in and then turn it back on. ;)
The power adapter has pretty colorful lights that change colors randomly as each function changes. I pretty much didn't see a use for that but it sure does look cool if you happen to glance over at it, lol.

I dig a hands free stimulator. I get awesome stimulation to my clit which leaves my hands free to stimulate the rest of me any way I see fit to. The antennas I worried might get annoying but they were not. On the lower speed settings, they don't feel like much more than really fast caresses. On the lower speeds, it actually tickled a little bit in a good way which to say the least was a hell of an interesting contrast. A tickling caress that sends delicious sensations through your body. Turn the speed up some more and you can really feel the antennas buzzing against you and any thoughts of the thing tickling you into a giggling fit pretty much disappear.

It has three functions which are vibration, pulsation and escalation. It automatically and randomly rotates through those functions. For me, that's a pro and con. On the pro side, you have constant stimulation but the way you're stimulated changes every time it alternates. So you get a little something and it's like an exciting little surprise when it rotates to the next one. It's pleasant and very fun. On the con side, I would like it better if you could do the random rotation when you want and then be able to just pick a setting and leave it on there. When I was close to climaxing, having it switch from one function to the next randomly got to be a little distracting and also a little annoying. Not so much that I had to quit using it though since it did still feel good. ;)

I was totally satisfied with the power the little bullet inside the butterfly has. I like a really strong vibration and this little number gets intense on the higher speeds. So much so that it was almost a little on the painful side but not quite. Which I wouldn't have minded either way. ;)

It's a a bit on the noisy side but it's nothing so bad that it can't be muffled or blended over with some background noise.

The description on the back of the box says that this little toy can be used while fucking. Of course, it says it more nicely but still, it's all the same. Given that my boyfriend is a couple thousand miles away from me for the time being, I decided to get out a dildo and test the theory out. I slid the dildo in easily (no lube required, thanks to the Micro Butterfly *wink*) and began working it slowly in and out of my pussy. The butterfly doesn't interfere with the dildo thanks to it's petite size. I was enjoying myself greatly.

Then I started to wonder how an actual vibrator would work with this happy little buzzing butterfly so, I got out my vibrator, turned it on and slid it in. Playing with the speed settings of the vibrator and the butterfly, I found that it's pretty intense to have both things vibrating away at the same time. I reached orgasm in about five minutes fucking myself with the vibrator while the butterfly buzzed away at my clit. It was intense but very, very good.
Penetration and hands free clitoral stimulation? Yes please!

Pros and cons considered, I do like this toy. I'll be excited to see the boyfriend again so I can strap it on while we have some fun together. I'll definitely use it again during solo time as well but it won't be something I bring out very often. If you're looking for something to spice things up or if you really need clitoral stimulation to get off during sex, this totally might be something you should check out! I give it a 3 out of 5. ;)

Thank you to TabuToys for letting me try out this neat little toy! =)

Happy Monday!

I wanna rock n roll all night....

I had a really good blog post written here. Then, Blogger freaked out
on me and I lost the post. No draft auto-saved or anything. So I
wrote it out again and when I almost had it done, Firefox shut down. I
got back on and what do you know, the post had not saved in a draft.

NORMALLY, I never have any problems with Blogger but FUCK that was
annoying. So maybe cosmically I'm just not supposed to write about
what I was going to write about today. So maybe third times a charm
but fuck it, I don't feel like writing it out a third time, lol.

Work was kind off odd last night. We weren't busy but we were steady
all night. It was weird though. Shamrock and I kept up with the drink
orders but we couldn't keep anything cleaned or stocked and couldn't
get any sidework done. We keep rushing around trying to get shit done
but it just wasn't working. I ended up annoyed and with a headache,
lol. Hopefully tonight and the rest of the weekend goes more smoothly.

Okay, so I have an interest in a lot of things regarding people. I
always wonder about things. So right now, I'm curious to know how long
y'all (the people crazy enough to read here regulary or even at all,
lol) take in the shower. In general. Not when you're in a rush and not
when you're taking longer than normal. Just on a regular basis, how
long do you take in the shower? I'm only curious because pretty much
everyone who knows me thinks I take insanely fast showers. I think
most people I know just take way too long, lol. So yeah, I wonder
about weird things from time to time. It's okay, I just think way too
much about way too many things. I'll have to write about why I think
"eardrums" is an inaccurate name for them and what I think they should
be called and why, haha.

I have a design for my wrist tattoo finally! My awesome boyfriend took
my ideas & drew me something out that I LOVED. I have been trying to
draw something out for a while. Even though I envisioned it perfectly
in my mind, I could never get it right on paper. So yay!

Happy Friday y'al

She ain't no Cinderella when she's getting undressed...

Well well well.... I had Wednesday off from work.

I went out to lunch with my mom and sister. Ran in to a co-worker while at the restaurant. One that I really like too so it was actually a pleasant exchange.

Afterward, we went to the mall. I needed some sandals. I'm convinced my letter to Mother Nature will prove successful and I don't wear anything but sandals, flip flops or open toed shoes in the warmer months. Of course, I don't own a lot of shoes. I can use one hand to count the pairs of shoes I have and still have room for more, lol. So I only have a cheap $5 pair of flip flops that annoy me because they're cheap, shitty little things but you get what you pay for and at the time that was what I could afford. So, I was in search of sandals that won't make me cringe and that was pretty much my mission. Of course, I hate the mall but meh, I had checked several stores in search of sandals and came up with a big fat fucking nothing. I'm PICKY. I don't like girlie stuff and that generally presents a problem when I need to shop for stuff.

The first place I went was Hot Topic. They had some sexy as fuck boots I wanted and some sexy as fuck platform pumps I wanted too. At $95 and $65 though, they weren't what I was going to get. Also not what I had set out for and I just like to get what I want and be done. I didn't like any of the sandals they had. They all looked like someone had puked neon paint in stupid designs all over them. I gather from all the shit I saw today, neon colors are back I guess and ick. I'm so not wearing shirts that look like people puked neon splats of paint randomly all over them and then after it dried, put some design in the center of the mess. Not doing it with pants or shoes or anything else either.

Though while I was in HT, I did find some stuff I liked and decided to buy just because.
I love Apocalyptica and have for years. They're a bit more popular now so they had one t-shirt on the band shirt wall. Which made me happy because it was pretty cool looking and I love the band. I wish you could suggest bands for them to find shirts for to sell, lol. Maybe I should just design my own for the bands I love that aren't mainstream enough. Hmm, there's an idea. I digress. I got that shirt and then I moved on to another wall I always have to look at in there....

.....Yeah, the wall that has the socks, leggings, arm warmers, gloves, scarves and all that stuff. If you've read here long enough, you know I freaking love socks. I have more pairs of socks than any person really needs. Some chicks have one hundred pairs of shoes. Me? Nah, I have three or four pairs of shoes but I have one hundred pairs of socks. Of course, that's a minor exaggeration but you get my point. ;) I saw about ten pairs I liked but settled on these two pairs......

After getting my socks picked out, I decided to buy something I haven't purchased in a long time. I'm talking something I haven't purchased in years. Earrings. Yep. I don't ever remember to wear them anymore so it isn't generally necessary to buy new pairs of them. I have issues buying earrings generally too. I don't dig girlie ones. I don't do trendy ones. I'm a picky fucking chick basically. I hardly see earrings I like and I don't like to shop long enough to really search much for them. I found some I liked in HT though.

Oh, you noticed there's a pair missing? How very observant y'all are. ;) If you didn't notice, no big deal. The missing pair are these little spikes I saw and liked. I used to have a pair similar to this but then sadly, I lost them. They aren't on the package because they're chillin' in my earlobes.

So that was all I got in Hot Topic. By then I was thinking I might just forget about the sandals since I got some other shit that I hadn't intended to get but then I was thinking on it and decided to go search out some sandals anyway. Why work so hard if you can't buy some small stuff you'll like?

I did find some sandals too. It was the only pair out of like fifty+ Famous Footwear had that I liked at all, lol. I'm picky, as I said.I also don't like the twenty+ pairs of sandals I saw that have that quark board looking wedge on them or whatever that crap is. Bleh. I wear a size nine to a ten depending on the brand and it's a little difficult finding shoes I like in my size. A lot of times I will find one pair of shoes I like and then they won't have them in a big enough size for me, lol. Anyway, here are the ones I got. Pretty simple and black of course. The Stars were what caught my attention. ;)

That concludes the picture show of my shopping extravaganza. Next time I go to the mall, I hope it's at the end of the year to knock out my Christmas shopping. *grin*

Come one, I KNOW more of you want to battle me on that silly little game I was talking about a couple days ago. MsRummy on MyBrute! Create your characters using that link (you know, so you can help me out and have fun too! *wink*) Unless you have already then hey, you rock and thank you! I'm slightly shameless, I admit that, it doesn't bother me, no need to mention it. I could be far worse things, after all. ;)

So, if you're a dork like me and read webcomics but some how don't read Questionable Content, you totally should. The Engineer turned me on to that webcomic several years ago and I've been a loyal reader ever since. It starts out kind of slow but it's awesome to see the art and the wit of the banter progress. I fucking love it. Pintsize and Hannelore are my two favorite characters, they're pretty awesome.

My post title comes from this song. =) I usually don't mention the song my title comes from but generally my titles are lyrics out of songs. I've had this song stuck in my head the last couple of days. It makes me chuckle.

Happy Thursday!

I couldn't find a way to help you grow, black rose...

Dear Mother Nature,

It's May now. It's Spring. I would really love to see some warm weather and go swimming in one of the lovely outdoor swimming pools that my complex has to offer. I would enjoy some blue skies, sunshine and warm weather so that I can jump into the cool, blue pool. Arms slicing through the water, back and forth back and forth. I love the feel of the water against my skin as I glide through it swimming laps. I further love the feel of sunshine on my face, neck and shoulders as I swim. The only time I like the sun at all is when I'm in the pool for that matter. Please don't deprive me of the one thing that lets me enjoy the bright sunshine. Of course, you'll need to let the sun actually come out from behind the rain clouds please.

I do love the rain. Don't get me wrong. Rain and gloomy weather make me feel peaceful and even allow me a little bit of contentment to wash over me. Lightning fascinates me and thunder is nice as well. I love walking in warm rain and I love sitting and watching the storms pass in cooler weather. I do love the rain BUT COME ON! I only get a few months out of the year to go swim and actually soak up some sunshine. You know I don't like being out in the sun the majority of the time, evil bastard that burning ball of gases can be.

I'd like to see it warm and dry. I'd also like to go out without having to tote along a jacket with me as well because inevitably, I will end up freezing my ass off once evening hits and the temperature drops from cool to cold. I also want to wear sandals without worry that I'll end up with soaked feet because those hazy clouds turned into some nasty rain. Or without worrying about getting cold because my toes are attempting to freeze off.

So in conclusion, please send the warm weather on and let the sun come out to play. It would be much appreciated. Not just by me but by tons of other people who want to be able to enjoy some warm, dry, lovely Spring weather too.

With love,
Amorous =)

She's like cocaine, heroin, alcohol, vicodin; She's my addiction...

The Model: I'm dating this woman that's 17* years older than me. People have been giving me a little grief over it and I don't know what to do because I'm tired of hearing about it but I really like her and she makes me happy. I just am so tired of justifying myself about it you know? Do you think it's okay for me to be dating someone 17 years my senior?

*The Model is 23.

Me: Why wouldn't it be?

The Model: I don't know babe. It's just... She's older than my big sister. She was with her ex-girlfriend for 8 years and they broke up a year ago and she swears she's long past that and I believe she is but people think she's with me because she got burned so bad. Her ex dumped her in a bad way. She has had some flings after the break up and she doesn't hardly bring up her ex and doesn't have anything that belongs to her and doesn't have any pictured. But by dating me, people say she's just trying to feel better and prove she's still hot by dating a hot young girl. I guess the age difference is the biggest hang up everyone seems to have.

Me: Okay. Do y'all have similar interests?

The Model: Yeah. Loads of them. Music, movies, books, food, museums, stuff we like to do for fun. All kinds of shit haha. She even collects bottle caps and troll dolls like I do!

Me: Nice. Do y'all have similar views on things?

The Model: Oh yeah. We even agree on religion and politics.

Me: Sweet. You said she makes you happy?

The Model: Yeah. She's kind, funny, intelligent and sweet. She's good to me. We have loads in common. We share similar views on things. She cooks for me. She makes me laugh. She treats me well. So well.

Me: So who gives a shit if she's older than you?

The Model: I just don't want people to keep giving me hell about it. I also don't want to hear that she's only with me because she needs the ego boost.

Me: Who cares what people say? People are always going to run their mouths. There are always going to be the ones shouting nay and the ones who want to see it not work. Some people are going to be uncomfortable by it and want to see it fail to ease their own discomfort. There are tons of reasons why this and why that. Tell them to lay off, you're going to date who you want and if they don't like it, too bad. They should be happy you're dating someone who is good to you. They can fuck off if they want to throw stones and talk shit over something silly.
If you like her, she likes you, y'all want to be together and you make each other happy then don't you think that's worth more than what people might say about you? Don't you think you're going to miss out on your own happiness if you're always trying to make everyone else happy instead?

The Model: Damn, you're good. You're not going to send me some kind of bill for this conversation right? ;)

One thing I want to say, age does matter at some point. I think a 16 year old dating a 25 year old isn't cool. I think when it's someone that young, it's not a good mix. I don't think a 16 year old who is just exploring relationships and possibly sexuality has the experience and the maturity to deal with someone that much older than them in a relationship sense. I'm sure there are exceptions but as a general rule, I just don't think teenagers should be dating adults that much older than them. Also not legal (in most states anyway, lol.)

When it's two mature adults though? Or even two adults who at least have a little bit of experience and a little knowledge of what they're doing. Even if it's an inexperienced 22 year old and a 33 year old, I still think that's fine. They might even be up for learning a thing or two from the older counterpart or vice versa. ;)

What do you, my dear readers, have to say on the subject at hand?
