No Spam Allowed

The TOS, as it reads for the ARK, says "play nice".

I've changed it now to include NO SPAM.

Spam is anything that's meant to promote a commercial product.

If it happens twice, I'll remove the account.

For funzies

I've decide im going to take notes from my american history class in this blog. btw my teacher looks and sounds like joan's slightly annoying.

I've actually decided not to take notes in this class as I plan to drop it soon. I am not the greatest role model college-wise. I just can't take a teacher whose voice sounds the equivalent of nails scraping on a board.

The Online Filter or Seeing Beyond the Smoke

One of my earliest memories is of my Mom chasing me through the house trying to get me to take my medicine. I had Bronchitis and had to take this syrup stuff that was orange flavored and I hated it. To this day I cannot drink Orange Crush because it tastes like that medicine. I had Bronchitis at least once a year from the time I was two until I was 20. Bronchitis makes breathing very difficult. It feels like there is an elephant standing on your chest. There is much coughing and phlegm (I hate… Continue

I'm going to be a grandma..... and other things happening in my life

Please bear with me this week, life is about to change drastically.

OK so, here I am, I'm 45 years old and my oldest daughter recently shared with us that she is going to be having a baby in August. She is 23 and engaged and has a 4 year old step son. All she has ever wanted was to be a wife and mother. Although she is one of the brightest people I have ever known, she never wanted to have a fancy job or to change the world, her ambition was to raise her family to the best of her… Continue

The neighbor from the Black Lagoon.

How many of you have neighbors who make Eva Braun look like Sister Theresa's kinder sibling? Well, we are the lucky winners of such a neighbor! The first sign was when my Mother made her some delicious home made food and brought it over to her. (We live in a high-rise condo building and our door is next to this woman's). We had just moved here and my Mom thought it was a nice gesture. The woman yelled at my Mother that she had company and sent her away! Later, her son, who was visiting her and… Continue

The Walmart sub culture

Today my sister sent me a link:

She sent it to me because I work for Walmart. I work in the fabric and craft department. I hate working for Walmart, I have not been able to put my finger on why, but I do.

I have worked for the last 20 some years in retail management and more recently as an executive assistant for a promotional company. However, with our recent move from NY to TN and the loss of so many… Continue

Same Scene, Different Actors, Different Act

Supposedly today is blog about New Orleans Theatre Day. Well, here are some of my thoughts....yes, an actual blog instead of a survey.

I've always been one to live more of a slightly fantasized, dramatic life. I've never wanted life any other way. I did my first "play" in kindergarten. Sort of. I say sort of because I was the "director" and an "actor:" in the "play". I remember asking my kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Marsha, if she'd let us do a play for her. She said yes. It wasn't… Continue

Bloody Monday

In one day, 65000 jobs evaporated on this planet. In ONE day. Hell, when Harley Davidson loses 1000 jobs, it's pretty much the apocalypse.

I am thankful to still be working. My list of complaints with what I do and how I do it have fallen away again, even though I know those will rear their ugly heads at some future point.

I figured it was so bad that with my own personal financial sludge pile, the economy, a bad and worsening shoulder, and global weirdness, I just… Continue

So Yeah.............

Have you ever had the feeling that you want to tell someone something but you can't because it would be totally inappropriate, But if you don't it would be like you missed the chance to make an awesome change in your life.

Its said that a guy and a girl can not be friends with each other and im sort of understanding that concept which is really bugging me. What if the attraction is only one way and by me being around it hurts this person what the hell am i suppose to do.

Know Thy Neighbor

As I watch videos online there are many times when I say to myself "Man, I wish that (insert vlogger name here) was my neighbor." There are so many people that I watch that I think are so smart, so funny, so thoughtful, or so artistic, that wouldn't it be great if they lived on my street and we could hang out and really get to know each other. But the truth is, if they were my neighbor, we would probably just see each other occasionally as we put out the trash cans or mow the lawn. We would say… Continue

Loneliness is an awful price to pay

In recent weeks, because of my own journey, I have begun to research the reasons behind loneliness. What I found out surprised me. I actually blogged about it last week but I took it down after a comment was left that hurt my feelings. This, in and of itself, proved to me how sensitive a subject this was for me.

I grew up in a family of 7, I had 2 brothers and 2 sisters (although my youngest sister was not born until I was 15). You would think that I was never lonely, but I was… Continue

The dreadful day had come..

Now is a complete BLOCKED site here in Dubai and the entirety of United Arab Emirates..

maybe our internet provider had had ENOUGH of the PORN in this site.

November of last year, they started to FILTER it, you cannot watch videos anymore...

It was like I was punched on the face leaving a blackeye..then bruises and soreness healed, I adjusted. I found ways so I can watch vids in there, ignoring what was on the live chats. but was… Continue

An update on my "Happy Therapy"

It has been approx 4 days since I last blogged about my intention to live in laughter, I have since dubbed this my "Happy Therapy". I would like to share with you my observations from the last few days but before I go there, I should explain some other things also.

after my "laughter in the rain blog" I blogged about loneliness. It was, in my humble opinion a pretty good blog. "Why don't you see it?" you may ask, well, someone left a "not nice" comment on it and I let it bother me… Continue

Write or wrong?

It's no fun reading about people's pain. Contrary to the belief of some, it's even LESS fun writing about ones' own pain. If anyone thinks I, or most people, would rather get attention from their pain than from ANY other human attribute, that person needs far more help than I do. Also, I am not apologizing for anything I write about. If someone doesn't like it, no one's forcing them to read it.

As far as what I achieve, even flat on my back, I have elicited the help of a Senator, who… Continue
