I just tried doing this--lost it somehow.? So here I start again.
Why the heck do so many of you men try to hide so much of your profile?? What the heck do you think you're going to accomplish by being so secretive:? you smoke; you don't smoke.? You want a woman who smokes/who doesn't smoke.? You want a woman who drinks/you want a woman who never drinks.? So many of you keep these facts a secret!!!!!
Why not put the facts out there and let them...

Most of you folks aren't anywhere near old enough for this to apply to you yet..........but [hopefully] you will be some day in the far distant future.....
How are you, my friend?
I'm fine. How are you?
There's nothing the matter with me, I'm just as healthy as can be, I have arthritis in both knees, And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze. My pulse is weak, my blood is thin, But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.
All my teeth have had to come out, And my diet I hate to think about. I'm overweight and I can't get thin, But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.
And arch supports I need for my feet. Or I wouldn't be able to go out in the street. Sleep is denied me night after night, But every morning I find I'm all right. My memory's failing, my head's in a spin. But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.
Old age is golden I've heard it said, But sometimes I wonder, as I go to bed. With my ears in a drawer, my teeth in a cup, And my glasses on a shelf, until I get up. And when sleep dims my eyes, I say to myself, Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?
The reason I know my Youth has been spent, Is my get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went! But really I don't mind, when I think with a grin, Of all the places my get-up has been.
I get up each morning and dust off my wits, Pick up the paper and read the obits. If my name is missing, I'm therefore not dead, So I eat a good breakfast and jump back into bed.
The moral of this as the tale unfolds, Is that for you and me, who are growing old. It is better to say "I'm fine" with a grin, Than to let people know the shape we are in.
I'M FINE!! HOW ARE YOU?

QUOTING QUEENOFYOURDREAMS: "This past year MM decided to bring in an MM counselor and Britt decided she could handle the tensions between members and the powers that be. She is very brave! I know how hard she has worked to protect us from the preditors that are out there. She deserves a raise! Ok, maybe we cannot do that, but we sure can take the time to thank her for the endless hours of work that she puts in here for us. Thank you Brittany. We do appreciate all you have done for us."
So, folks, here is your chance to tell Brittany [without further hijacking CG's blog] how much you appreciate what she does for us. Lord knows how the woman has time for a REAL LIFE with all the "crap" she has to put up with from us good guys alone. How she manages to even find time to breathe and deal with the bad guys as well is beyond my comprehension.
When you have an 'I Hate My Job day' [Even if you're retired, you sometimes have those days]
On your way home from work, stop at your pharmacy and go to the thermometer section and purchase a rectal thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson.
Be very sure you get this brand. When you get home, lock your doors, draw the curtains and disconnect the phone so you will not be disturbed.
Change into very comfortable clothing and sit in your favorite chair. Open the package and remove the thermometer. Now, carefully place it on a table or a surface so that it will not become chipped or broken.
Now the fun part begins.
Take out the literature from the box and read it carefully. You will notice that in small print there is a statement:
"Every Rectal Thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson is personally tested and then sanitized."
Now, close your eyes and repeat out loud five times,' I am so glad I do not work in the thermometer quality control department at Johnson & Johnson.'
HAVE A NICE DAY; AND REMEMBER, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE ELSE WITH A JOB THAT IS MORE OF A PAIN IN THE ASS THAN YOURS!
..Remember, if you haven't got a smile on your face and laughter in your heart.... Then you are just an old sour fart;
Maybe you should go and work for Johnson & Johnson!!!!!
For everyone out there who thinks this Feb. 14th holiday is really, really, really important--and your life is almost over if you don't have a sweetheart to take you out to dinner on the 14th; send yourself a super duperly expensive bunch of 12 red roses and .....GET OVER IT!!!!!
Do something swell for yourself!!!! Enjoy YOURSELF!!!!! Have a fun time with yourself. Pet your dog--or cat. Take home the most expensive thing on the menu from your favorite Chinese restaurant. Watch a great movie. Try "Love Actually." That one is always good for getting a good cry out of you while not making you feel like it's about yourself and your own condition that you're crying about... Yup, go Celebrate yourself.
Remember....this is a made up holiday. It belongs to Hallmark!!!! That should get you out of worrying about yourself and your own lovelife....His sucked for sure...
Just trying to provide a service here....Just trying to be helpful. Even though this message has wound up on a negative note....and [because] I might be mostly talking to myself.....
I want to apologize to everyone here on MM for my idiotic, stupidly childish, gravely immature outburst on Sophia's blog the other night. I can offer no excuse for behaving like such an a**h**e because there is no excuse for my behavior. I can only say to all of you that I am deeply, deeply sorry for any offense or pain I caused any of you and I hope you can forgive me. I want to apologize, too, for taking so long to get this blog posted. I've been having internet connection problems and could not get on MM until a couple of hours ago.
It may not be appropriate to say this here, but I would think that at least some of you would appreciate knowing that I have privately apologized to those I most deeply offended before I took to writing this public apology. Doing things in that order seemed the right thing to do.
For the record, as briefly as I can do it, I would like to say that I have admired Colin Powell since his days as Secretary of State under Bush. The more I saw of him, the more I thought he was an outstanding statesman; head and shoulders above anyone else out there in the political arena. When we thought he might run for president on the Republican ticket, I hoped and prayed he would. I thought he would bring a dignity back to the Oval Office that we haven't seen there in a long time. I knew I probably would not agree with all his policies, but I thought he would be just what our country needed. I was most disappointed when he chose not to run. When he declared his support of McCain, I was at least glad that he was probably going to sway a lot of people over to the McCain camp so we could keep a Marxist out of the Oval Office. When he then switched his support to Obama, I felt personally betrayed. I could not believe that this extraordinarily thoughtful, intelligent patriot would stand behind Obama. This, then, Powell's support of Obama, was the one and only source of my fury. I still think Powell is far more presidential than any one on the scene today. And for everything else he has done, I still admire him enormously.
Once again, my most sincere apologies to everyone, and thank you very much to any of you who still have enough respect left for me to even bother reading a blog that I wrote.
We can't post URL's, so here are instructions to one of my favorite "videos" of all time.
But, before I give you the instructions, know that the first few moments of the audio will be in German. Don't worry about that. Ignore it. The actual one-act play [not even that long] is in English. You won't miss anything by "wading through" the German. I hope all of you will get a good laugh out of this one....I've been watching it on and off for nigh on 20 years and I still LMAO every time I see it.
So: Here it is:
Google "Dinner For One."
Under that heading there will be two listings. Click on the one on the right hand side. The introduction will be in German. Don't worry about that....let it go....Just wait. The one-act play will soon start in English. It might glitch a couple of times: if it does, just put it back down to small screen, hit play again, it will go back to full screen and play just fine.
I hope all of you get at least half as many laughs out of this one as I have had over the years.
Pat--Squirrelly--Curious whatever the hell my number is....
I'm itching to post a blog...but I have nothing to say!!!! Nothing at all. Anyone else feel the same way....and yet feel you have a LOT to say....just nowhere to post it because it your thoughts have no particular subject heading?
Post it here....Please. Who knows what we'll get going...
All my friends call me a really positive person. But to remain a positive person, I have to be able to perform "negative" duties with aplomb from time to time, or I just can't remain feeling positively fulfilled. So.... I'm happy to report that :
TWO MORE BITE THE DUST.
Scammers, that is. Two more I reported after my very sensitive gut [newly sensitized, I should say, by MM scammers] reacted very negatively to their winks/emails to me. Both of these two newly identified A-Holes have now gone off into cyberspace somewhre...wherever it is that MM Powers that Be send scammers when they find them... some kind of pergatory, no doubt...maybe worse...
...from which they will no doubt emerge with NEW identities fairly soon.
FOLKS: Let's look on this as a challenge rather than a negative.
Everyone: Keep vigilant. If your gut says something in an email/profile/wink is too good to be true---YOU CAN BET YOUR LAST NICKEL YOUR GUT IS TELLING YOU THE TRUTH!!!!!!
Report it, folks. Hit that "Report Concern" button. Do it for yourself, do it for your friends on here, do it for the life and welfare of the entire site you enjoy being a part of.
And for you girls who have emailed me asking me whether or not I can tell you if the man who wants to meet up with you next Thursday [Sunday, for you, R], is for real; is someone you SHOULD meet up with, let me say this.
If you can't get a good honest gut hunch that you would be as safe meeting up with this guy [these guys] as you would be --would have been--meeting up with your own mother's breast for a feeding way back when....then don't meet up with him. Period. No matter what the reason for saying "NO." Say "NO." No matter how stupid your reason may sound. Do not meet up with him.
And don't forget this, girls: You do not, never do, owe anyone, any man, an explanation why you have decided NOT to meet for coffee, or dinner, or anything else, other than to say you've changed your mind. Your reasons for changing your mind are most legitimately yours alone; reasons you are under no moral, social or legal obligation to divulge....
Okay....that's it from Mama Curious2078 aka Squirrelly for tonight..... I am so tired....so whipped....love to all....good night.
That's all...end of tonight's lecture....
Pat aka Suirrelly aka Curious 2078
ALL OF YOU: BE SAFE!!!!!!! And always say NO when you're gut tells you to.
Sometimes, every once in a while, I think I have something important to say. Something at least a few folks might be interested in hearing; something that would generate a lot of thought amongst our bloggers. Everytime I try to post one of those blogs--doesn't happen very often--once a month or so--the blog gets screwed up. Gets pulled. Gets....screwed up one way or the other.
So, from now on, if I have one of those "something important" things I want to say, I'm just going to post a blog called SOMETHING IMPORTANT. Then I'm going to invite anyone who wants to read it to email me and ask for it. And I will be happy to email it to you.
I am so done with trying to post anything of any importance on here because, as I've said, every time I do--the damn thing goes off into the Blogland Black Hole....
I'm so disgusted with MM tonight, I could--almost--light up a cigarette. but I won't let MM win. I won't go bum that smoke.... I will not light up...
I just rewrote/reposted a blog on scammers that was pulled 3 seconds after I posted it. MM said the reason was that because I cut and pasted from word, the fonts, etc. got screwed up... So, I reposted tonight, writing the entire thing anew into the system. But....
I just rewrote it in its entirely into the system: MM took it....for about 10 minutes....and now there is no trace of it whatsoever. I did not violate any of MM's rules. I did not say anything insulting to anyone on this site. I said nothing to violate any of MM's policies. But the blog is GONE....
Might as well have never existed. I'm getting pretty disgusted with this nonsense.... Every time I write something I think is really good----poof. Gone. this one gone just like my deer hunting post was pulled after 15 minutes. I didn't protest that one...should have, but I let it go....
Not sure what to say from here.... Thinking of opting out of this crazy site. Probably won't. Found too many friends here. Still....I'm as angry as an.....I don't know what..... No more words I can post here....just want to say I'm pissed beyond measure...angrier than an I don't know what....screaming like crazy....MM is sooooooooo screwed up!!!!!!!!
No one knows. She hasn't blogged/posted today as far as I can tell..
Queenie, if you're here anywhere, out there, anywhere....in touch with MM--do let us know.... I'm sure I can safely speak for everyone here when I say we all wish you well....and we're all dying to know if you've got your car shoveled out yet...
Just a note to all of you...on Brian's five-word blog starter---that got us going wacko about golf and golf balls and such....
Thanks to every single one of you... That "virtual reality" funship was the most fun I've had in either virtual or REAL-ship in well over a month. [No comments, please about how my life is in dire straights and I need to get OUT more....]
One, totally, uproarious BLAST!!!!!! I joined this site for ONE reason. I stay here for another entirely. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!! Laughter up the wazoo. Folks, the laughs you've all given me are worth far more than the cost of being a paid member here. Love to all of you--even if some of you DO turn out to be trolls.....scammers....pervs....golddiggers...If you keep making me laugh like I have been....I could care less!!!!!
Don't you just love it when you get an email from MM saying there's a new post on your blog--and you've been waiting and hoping that certain friends would, indeed, post on your new blog--and then you open that email--and the new post on your latest blog turns out to be from------YOURSELF!!!!!
I wouldn't try to post a URL; I'm sure they'd take it down even though it's selling nothing... So: Google "God & Dog." The first listing will be "Video Results for God & Dog." Under this heading are two choices. Click on either one for a very sweet song that explains oh, so simply why we love our dogs....
But beware: If you're cursed/blessed with excessive sentimentality, you will need to have a couple of tissues handy.
I had a flirt on another site....and then 7 more flirts from the same man within an hour. "You're cool,"...."You're the one..." "I'd go to the ends of the earth to meet you..." Everything short of "let's get married yesterday; you're so divine."
Checked out the man's profile: What's there? NOTHING. Nada. Not one ounce of info about who he is. This particular site allows you to fill out basic questions with: "Email me; let's talk," and nothing more. Got a photo--no smile in the photo!!!! Just a sour puss. [what's with that? Who would want to respond to a sour puss? Who would think that a sour puss photo would get a happy response???? These men are nuts!!!!]
Feeling annoyed, and feisty, ...I did respond. Asking for some basic info. Such as, why don't you give me something comparable to what I gave you in my profile? The respose? Another wink!!!!!!
Hell..... Go scratch. I'm starting to get awfully cynical on these sites. The only saving grace, folks--these blogs here on MM!!! At least here we can all air our honest feelings and know that someone, somewhere, usually cares enough to say something honest back--and usually does so with a lot of humor!!!!!
Love all you guys who keep showing up in blogs. Some days, the funnies on here are all that keeps me going.'
Tennesse Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire," directed Liv Ullman, opened Dec. 1 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music with Blanchett as Blanche.¿ I understand its' limited number of performances is already sold out.¿
I would dearly love to see this one, but won't be able to.¿ If anyone gets to see this play, please let me know how it is.¿ I can only imagine it will be¿absolutely terrific with Blanchett giving a performance that could easily surpass the legendary Vivien Leigh's screen performance.
Wouldn't you know it?!!? Now¿that¿I've quit smoking,¿but I'm still thinking about cigarettes once every couple of minutes, and still struggling with urges to go bum a smoke from someone/anyone--or light up a short length of rope and smoke that...sometimes I even wonder how a very, very, very tightly rolled up¿Kleenex would taste.....or whether or not you can light the end of a pretzel stick and smoke IT?....And the worst:¿¿Seeing¿someone who makes it a rule not to smoke in their car come out of our deli, light¿a cig, take two drags, and then stick it in the "sandbox" by the deli door.¿ I wonder if I could go down there and pluck it out and smoke IT....I could, afterall, swab the filter with alcohol first to kill germs¿and let¿then let it dry.....
Oh, yeah.¿ Now that I'm still struggling with these kinds of pathetic urges and¿depraved fantasies, and¿I'm just starting to be able to shove them back out of mind without wanting to put my fist through a wall--Now that I'm starting to see the smoke-free light at the end of the tunnel of addiction--Now is when¿I'm getting in my inbox and in my junk mail folder, heaps of messages with the subject line:¿ DISCOUNT CIGARETTES.¿ BUY HERE.¿ ALL BRANDS...
