The world may be going to H*** in a handbasket but I bought a new dress yesterday and I am determined to wear it and have a great time in it. I only wish I have a good man by my side at the same time :) We'll see what happens.
I haven't touched too much on current events and our country's precarious position which is being constantly pummeled by Obummer. It is a almost a constant thought though. Because I am aware, I will appreciate the good moments even more.
Today is a Gift, that's why it's called the Present. Try to remember that in your busy lives :)
Thankful? Hmm. Not so sure. I can't be easily be one of those "Be thankful for everything, even the bad experiences." type. I would have rather passed on the bad or hurtful experiences, thank-you. I can say the end result of what you are partially comes from all those life experiences whether they were good or bad. I am definitely thankful for certain things though.
I think that saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." is annoying and only true for some people about some things. What doesn't kill you can break your heart, make you more scared, more anxious, less healthy, more poor, less confident, etc., etc.
During this Thanksgiving and holiday season, please remember to be compassionate towards others.
The following is just one example of something I found on the internet.
It's that time of the year again, Halloween. Here are some costume ideas for all you ladies out there.
Slutty Nurse -
Mini-skirt, short lab coat, stethoscope. Simple and easy, just like you.
Slutty Fireman -
Mini-skirt, red shirt, suspenders, fireman's hat. Red hot.
Slutty Cop -
Mini-skirt, blue shirt, cop hat, billy club. Score a ten with the five-o.
Slutty Teacher -
Mini-skirt, dress shirt, glasses, high heels. Teach them something new.
Slutty Private School Girl -
Mini-skirt, dress shirt, glasses, high socks. Catholicism never looked so good.
Slutty Daisy Duke -
Mini-skirt, plaid shirt, cowboy boots. If only you looked like Jessica Simpson I have never "slutted it up" for Halloween or for any other holiday/event. I have worn various costumes but they weren't skanky looking. I like to have fun but I also like to be respected.
I have a lot of female acquaintences, some are friends. They reveal a lot of themselves on Halloween. I mean not only do they reveal themselves literally but also reveal their character and it isn't good. I'm not judging them but I try to disassociate myself from it to a degree. Like saying no to going to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, basically the audience is Drunk Whores on Display.
Do I sound like a Dud or what? Lol, I'm really not.
I am so used to virtually no one contributing that I quickly go straight to posting box. Today I just saw SunnyCoastSmoke's post in here that she typed in late August! It was good to see :) I wish there was a like button or that Thumbs Up sign on here.
As I stated in my previous post that I decided to not associate with a certain girlfriend anymore for my own well-being. A couple days later I saw her post on Facebook which only reinstated that I made the right decision. She decided to go out with this guy to celebrate his birthday who just a few weeks earlier had some very violent behavior along with cutting her down. Originally, she only was dating him for less than 2 weeks and decided to stop seeing him. In that time, she slept with him and he knew everything about her, where she lives and works,etc.
The nutshell version is this guy came to her house and beat up her current date!! He came over at about 7 AM, someone let him in, he stormed upstairs to her bedroom and started beating up the guy she was with. On a later day, I heard he punched her car and put a dent in it. So when I saw that she went out with him after all he had done, I knew her judgement is whacked. Not only is she putting herself in danger but everyone else surrounding her, especially her children!!
I don't want to talk personally but I can understand why women who are in marriages may stay with abusers but when you choose to have a new relationship with an abuser after you have made a new life for yourself and your kids then something is seriously wrong with you.
Please people, when you are getting to know someone new, be careful and don't rush into anything. No matter what we may think they are, we really don't know them and there are too many ways you could put yourself in dangerous or just hurtful situations.
I saw my ex-neighbor on here, too bad I can't tell any good women the truth about what he really is!!
I dumped a friend which basically for the most part means I lost a group of friends since she hangs with a group. After a year of trying to get some deeper friendships, all I got was a lot of partiers to spend part of my weekends with.
I can only put up with so much for so long. How many times can I go to the same places to drink? With a few exceptions that was basically what it was..drinking. They can no religious beliefs or strong Christian backgrounds. They don't give a shite about politics or current events. Some do care about who they may screw next. Maybe the word "care" is giving them too much credit. They are looking out for who may be next.
Take another Zanex and you can stay in Happy Mode . That is what would be right for my former friend. Or should I just say to have another drink, actually it's both. For me, I want to feel...feel whatever it is without any drug influencing me. I also want to feel accepted for what I am. This can be in many areas.
What I find ridiculous is someone thinking all I should post on Facebook is happy, frivilous sentences.They think I shouldn't post my views, the real news, any emotions other than happy, happy , joy, joy tidbits. I will continue to be who I am, you might like it, if you don't then oh well !! I am not here to please you.
I don't know where my path is leading me but I do know I can't stay where I was.
I am the Queen of Procrastination, in fact i'm doing it right now!!
I did manage to get in touch with my friend for planning Saturday Night. When I'm planning something fun, I don't procrastinate too much. It's the everyday, never ending garbage that I procrastinate about.
Saturday night should be wonderful. I'm going to see my favorite reggae band. Good food, good music, good friends,..only one thing is missing! He is, whoever "HE" may be, still he's missing.
Amazing, i was allowed to copy & paste something! Below is what I posted in a political thread in a different site's forum. There is an update to it that I will mention at the end.
Obama is up to his typical behavior. He refuses other religions but caters to Islam.
Group Proceeds With 2-Hour Islamic ‘Jumah’ Prayers ‘at the DNC’ (And You Won‘t Believe Who’s Invited) Posted on August 27, 2012 at 8:25pm by Erica Ritz
The host committee for the Democratic National Convention is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with featuring Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday before its convention, though Democrats earlier denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event.
Update: The DNC has now decided to allow the Cardinal speak at the closing of the convention. I am sure they decided to allow it because they need to pander to the Christian voters.
Obummer is dangerous, we cannot afford to have him get re-elected (in more ways than one!). He should get impeached!! I do not trust Romney but I consider him, without a doubt, the lesser of two evils. We need a third party to rise up! Ron Paul was robbed of the nomination. The RNC broke it's own rules to make sure that Paul didn't have a chance. The entire voting system needs to get changed.
If I am allowed to, I will post some more political info. at a later date.
Starting with last night.
I dated myself again, I was very good company,lol. I was originally supposed to meet friends for Happy Hour, with either restaurant/bar I would have been happy and the main goal for me was eating a needed and wanted meal. Then we were supposed to see this rock/reggae musician(s) for the first time. I didn't expect to be there for hours but I did expect to spend a decent amount of time there.
Turned out my idea was not their idea and it all changed. I decided since I was starving, I would go for one of my fav. meals in Old Town by myself and I did. My friends were also in Old Town already at a bar down the street. Tthe two roommates decided to eat before they left the house. "Thanks so much for letting me know that you decided to ditch the whole dinner at Happy Hour thing!" I was thinking that, I didn't actually say it.
Dinner was nice but I REALLY hate eating by myself in a restaurant. Then i saw a jewerly store, I did some browsing and really liked a certain necklace (includes matching earrings) which doesn't happen often so I said "Screw it, just buy it. You know if you don't buy it, you are going to regret it." So I did buy it :)
I then met up with my friends, feeling better cuz I ate something good, and happier because I bought a pretty piece of jewerly which I wore walking out the jewerly store.
Eventually I finally talked two friends into walking to the Inn with me to see those musicians, the ONLY reason why I planned the night in the first place. My two friends are a couple who like to dance so they really liked it and they (the musicians) were great!! We stayed till the end of their session.
I was going to get into a whole nother story but this one is long enough as it is. The night ended a little earlier for me which was fine. There was a major DUI checkpoint which I passed right through pretty quick after showing my license. Had it been later, the wait could have been much longer. I am not much of a drinker and never, ever would drive if I was drinking so nothing to worry about on my end. It is the other drivers I have to worry about and having been in 2 major accidents where the drivers of the other vehicles were drunk is something you never forget.
So with this rambling story, what do you get ? Jenny is a great date...to herself. Plans? what plans? I make them, others don't stick to them. Driving drunk? Big No-No, don't even drive buzzed, it isn't worth it. Steve and Jeff? Two cute, talented musicians I will have to see again. Mmmm Hmmm.
Looking forward to listening to a band for the first time tonight. They're a Rock/Reggae local band. Then next week I get to see my favorite reggae band, check them out, The Devastators. Just type their name in ur search bar and you'll find them, based out of San diego I think. They have some good original music and also play some covers.
By the way, my girlfriend did give Strep Throat to that Bo of hers, ha! I knew he would get sick! I had Strep Throat once a long time ago. It was so bad I had a hard time swallowing. I could say something here,lol, nevermind.
Have a fun but safe weekend!
My girlfriend's parents left to go back to their home in New Orleans after staying here in CA. for a whole month. I ended up hanging out with them a few times and they are a wonderful, older couple. They were both widowed and found each other afterwards and got married. They vacation together, and dine and dance together, the way it should be. They may appreciate that they have each other even more since they have both loved and lost.
Always appreciate what time you do get with your loved ones. I lost my mom 16years ago. I would love to have one more day with her. My friend is so blessed that even though she lives far away from her home state, she gets to visit often and she still has several people TO visit. I don't. My favorite saying says it all.
Yesterday is History
Tomorrow is a Mystery
Today is a Gift
That's why it's called The Present
Try to remember this when you are with your loved ones. Tomorrow may not come so don't put off what you can say and do today.
First of all, I start my Monday off nearly disgusted by the display of affection that my grilfriend Cindy just got. She messages on Facebook that she is in Urgent Care, no other info. I am seriously concerned, as we're typing back and forth, it turns out she has Strep Throat, yeah it's uncomfortable and contagious but not the end of the world. Now what makes it not so bad is this new guy is with her, willing to catch Strep Throat to take care of her. I'm sure this is in more ways than one.
I can't even get a decent date on the weekend and I am not contagious yet she gets some hunk to risk getting sick for her on a Monday!! Okay,...sometimes not getting a date would be because I say NO a lot and I don't act needy nor do I flirt to an insane degree. I also expect my date to have at lease some views we share. Okay...I am now getting the differences. I even want a Christian,lol. yes, it is all abundantly clear now as to why.
My dog got spooked again yesterday and was ready to take off under the fence in my backyard with me standing right there!! This has happened 4 or 5 times in the last year or so and it's worrying me. This is a very sweet, loved little dog that I have had for 11 years. She was never like this before. Too much to type but I am thinking about getting a second dog and I'm hoping they will be buddies and it will help her not want to run. My other dog died a few yrs ago and Gizmo would never leave her side during the day. My other dog was better with a few things, the fact that someone left the backyard fence open and she would NOT leave the yard (and Gizmo stayed with her) says a lot. I will miss that dog forever.
I am completely against Biometric ID for humans but because I love my dog so much and she has been lost twice in the last year ,( I was blessed to get her back) I am considering getting her microchipped. It's a very hard decision for me for more than one reason.
Saturday was a nice day for me. It started early with a birthday party/Cajun Feast for a girlfriend. Then we visited a few wineries then a needed nap then out to Old Town. I had some Sangria and visited a few places. I found out about a local, reggae band that I want to go listen to them next weekend.
A few weeks ago I decided to see the only reggae band I know (up until meeting this one on Saturday). They were at this bar in San Diego and I made an event out of it to go see them with friends. It turned out to be one of the best nights of the year, nearly perfect. Of course what was missing was a special guy by my side but it was still a fantastic night.
They had Happy Hour on a weekend night till 10 PM, that is unheard of!! Good food, good drinks, great music and all with friends :)
Saturday should be fantastic, even more so if I win some money :) I'm going to the horse races at the Del Mar Racetrack for the first time. Races, Beer Fest and a live concert, hopefully some quality men? Not too bad?
I'm going to bet a little,.. the win, place or show way, just maybe I'll win, wish me luck!
By the way, I think it's eerie before Dawn and being in what seems like an empty city reminds me of Will Smith's "Legend" or The Omega Man" with Charlton Heston.
That is not typical for me but right now I am feeling slightly optomistic. It is way too early to tell but I have a FEW dating possibilities, yes!! Of course none of them are from this site,ha!
The one I feel best about today is of course the one who lives in another state,lol, now that is typical! Since I am quite familiar with scammers, I feel more confident since he gave me his full name and I can check him out to a degree. By the way, there was this one recent scammer photos that were posted (on other sites) that I saw today with an entirely different profile,different user name ,etc. I guess it was the real guy in the photos because he is suppose to go camping with a group and you have to pay for reservations, so if he wasn't real, he wouldn't be making reservations,would he? I contacted him and told him about the pics,etc., not even a thank-you, so yeah, he must be real since he was rude enough not to even bother replying! So typical in the state of California where I live.
My last date was what I call a "Practice Date", I knew it would just be good practice for me to go out on a date since it had been so long. It turned out to be exactly that,.. practice. One reason why I don't date too often is because I put so much effort into communicating before the date that I know a date shouldn't happen. I wouldn't want to lead anyone on anyway. I have so much fun with friends that I don't need to get it elsewhere :)
Well I did go to the Pub after all. I ended up falling in love at first site. He was so sweet and affectionate. When he looked at me with his big, beautiful eyes, I knew I wanted to take him home with me. His name was Hercules...the Boxer dog :) And no, I didn't get to take him home unfortunitely.
Going to the pub with friends to go see a band we like. hopefully at some point I will have one decent conversation about religion or politics :/ I don't know if I will find someone capable of conversing about anything deep and meaningful on a Saturday night at a drinking establishment but I'm gonna try. If not, I will still smile although right now I am not really feeling like the superficial crap of a bar scene. Hopefully because it's a pub,it may be slightly better.
I'm back from camping, it was just 2 days and just one overnight stay. There were a lot of nice parts about it. Only a narrow street was between our camping site and the ocean. We ended up have a BBQ and bonfire on the sand that night.
I slept in my van with my dog on a bench that folds down. It was better than dealing with the 12 other people and the other dog that was there. The dog (Cassy) that was there is a newly rescued dog who is sweet on her own but had some issues and my small dog was scared of her so we had to separate them.
Before the trip I was debating whether to invest in an air mattress but decided not to. A mattress would have been perfect. If I EVER go camping again, I will definitely have an air mattress. I doubt that I will go camping again. If I do, I will not go through that much of a hassle to prepare,etc. I was the only sober,adult female so I took charge of the BBQ, I did get one teenager to help bbq the food so it wasn't so difficult. I think what made it less fun but the sheer number of people we had, a whole thirteen! The group broke into smaller groups. What I think makes camping fun is the comradery thing, some people weren't getting it. All in all, it was a nice experience but Day Camping or nice hotels are even nicer :)
I am remembering some of the reasons why I don't camp even before I am camping. The work involved in preparing is ridiculous! I like nice hotels.
Just a few of the chores I've been doing for a couple days;
Wash van completely inside & out
Wash all patio furniture I'm bringing
Pull out heavy van chair so I can pack in patio chairs
Wash cooler, repair leak in cooler, shop for groceries,etc., pack cooler in the morning before I leave.
Pack various entertainment
Pack clothes, toiletries, supplies
Bringing the dog and everything for her including her crate.
I'm sure I'm leaving some chores out but gotta go finish my camping chores for the night :(
Seems like a lot of the blogs on here are a cry for attention and it's getting pretty ridiculous. Lol. I just use this as a thought processor/journal.
Last Friday Obama signed another executive order, this one having to do with controlling the airwaves. I hate him. It is 1984 in 2012 people, if you don't realize it now, when will you realize it? He needs to get impeached now!!! It won't happen though, it seems he can do anything and get away with it. Am I repeating myself? Probably. Oh well, I can't repeat it enough!
I finally started with my emergency preparedness goal. I made the big purchase and bought a generator. The comfort that comes with buying a few things that may come in very handy is great! I still have a list of things but I get to check that one off. What I won't become is a doomsday prepper.Those shows are a little bizarre to watch. I have only seen a couple. Some of it is just TOO extreme.
Going to see my free Thursday concert tomorrow, my third in a row. It's so nice to sit with friends and hear some live music and enjoying the cooler evening weather. I would love to do it with a date too. i with keep that topic to myself, thank-you! Sigh.
Been exercising a lot at the gym lately. Will it ever come to the point where I " feel energized and notice the changes", blah, blah, blah. I do not get a high from exercise and I highly doubt I ever will. What I do get is tired from it. So I get more tired and sore,what is the point? Ha,ha..one of these days, the point better make itself known to me in a physical change for the better.
So GMO seeds weren't enough, they have now created GMO mosquitoes
. You can't make this stuff up,.. bugs and plants that will make us infertile. Vaccines that make you sick instead of the opposite. Drones in the sky. Light poles that will record u and your voices and talk back to you. TSA groping people just to get on a flight. There is more of course. It is sickening.
I said it was random :)
Here is another random comment- I hate tattoos. I just heard about some celebrity who got some long script inked on her forearm. Can't you just get a t-shirt made? Or a piece of jewerly? I like skin, uninked, unmarred skin.
I was so sickened by the Supreme Court's decision to uphold Obamacare that I had to wait a while before I could type about it. I understand we need insurance reform but this is NOT the way to go!
It isn't worth the time to get into details for the very few people who may read this but if you are an Obama follower, you owe it to yourself to do some research and see the truth. I have been in political forums where no matter how many facts of his wrongdoings are shown to his supporters, they still stand firm and want him re-elected. The Sheeple may get this socialist another 4 years! Our country cannot handle another 4 years.
I also don't trust Romney but right now he is the lesser of two evils. The only candidate I do support is Ron Paul. If the delegates manage to vote for him, he could get the Republican ticket. Paul has had a virtual blackout by the mainstream media. You have to wonder why. One reason why is because he can't be bought. He's portrayed as radical, the fact is he is brilliant.
Just some random stuff and yeah, I'm complaining,lol.
My daughter and her hubby may move to Kauai because of his work for a project they SAY will take a yr. and a half. I absolutely don't want them to move. They are my only family in California. We will find out fairly soon.It's ironic that they had a planned vacation there so as I'm typing this, they are there right now. They will probably fall in love with it and want to move :(
Had a major disappointment with a crush I had on a different singles site (nothing happens here for the most part). I am so sick of dealing with these different characters that I hid my profile. I'm gonna stay on the site but only for the forums. It is rare that I find someone who might seem right for me so when I come across someone with possiblities, I do get disappointed when nothing good comes from it.
On a better note I am spending more time in the GYM and I better start seeing a freaking difference :/
Went to the Balloon & Wine Festival and saw Lifehouse in concert, they were fantastic. Going Thursday to a free concert in the park Thursday with either Happy Hour or the wineries before. It is going to be nice. Sitting on a blanket on the lawn, live music and spending it with friends. What I really wish though is to have a man by my side too :)
Can I make more faces in one post? Why yes I can ; )
