Keep Them Happy

Pinning Joe down for photographs is going to be my new hobby! Of course, that means he’s gonna need to do some shopping and we’re definitely going to change that hair! *laughs cuz she knows he’s reading this* Give me time and I’ll give him a complete make over…*giggles* Yep, cuz that’s what we do, right, girls? We pin them down and then start molding them into what we want. The secret is to keep them happy during the process. *winks* Otherwise, we’re just making them pretty for the next girl!

Just Dinner and a Movie

While setting up for this picture, I was thinking about how awkward it can be on a first date. That got me to thinking about one of the worst dates I’ve ever been on in real life. I had signed up for one of those online dating websites, long before smart phones and dating apps were even a thing. Like match.com or something along those lines. Anyway, I had been talking to this one guy quite a bit in an instant messenger kinda thing. In fact, it was probably on yahoo, cuz that’s what I used all the time back in the day. We finally decided to meet for dinner and a movie. I agreed to meet him at a shopping center.
When he arrived, his appearance startled me. He wasn’t a bad looking man, but his clothes were long out of style and ill fitting. Right away, I felt that inner sigh and thought, “Okay, its just dinner and a movie. Not big deal.” He wanted to go into the store for some cough drops, so I agreed to go in with him. I was familiar with the store and he wasn’t, so I knew I could show him right where they were. For a solid ten minutes he carried on about a $0.25 price difference between name brand and store brand. My thought quickly became an silent mantra, “It’s just dinner and a movie.”
He wanted to drive, so we hopped in his car and headed for the deli that we had agreed upon. We were keeping this light and casual. “It’s just dinner and a movie.” Given that he had been so seemingly offended by the price of some cough drops, I had decided to myself that I would be paying my own way. (I never go on a date without being able to cover my own costs.) I ordered my food and paid for it without even hinting for him to pay for it, then stepped aside so he could order his own. We didn’t talk about that at all, we simply had an awkward conversation about his recent divorce while we ate. Dinner was fine and I was feeling a bit better about the date.
We get to the theater and I let him approach the ticket booth first. I was curious to see if he’d at least offer to buy my ticket. He did. I was actually surprised that he asked for two tickets and paid without hesitation. Of course, as we went inside he made a comment about how the concession stands were a complete and total scam. I couldn’t argue with that, plus I wasn’t expecting anything after the cough drop debacle. He tried to hold my hand during the movie. He was rejected. I was not interested in holding his hand. At this point he had already been friend zoned.
After the movie, we’re riding back to my car and I’m looking at his CDs. I said, “You can tell a lot about a person by the type of music they keep in their car.” (This was true, once up on a time.) He was curious what I thought of his collection and proudly announced that his favorite band was Nickelback. He even asked me what that said about him. My reply was, “That you lack an introduction to better music.” *grins* Not surprisingly, he had never heard of Perfect Circle, which I was obsessed with at the time. So upon getting to my car, I grabbed a CD and we sat and listened to a few songs in his car. *sighs* This is when things took a drastic turn.
The song, The Nurse Who Loved Me, started playing. Less than two minutes into the song he starts bawling like a teenaged girl after her first break up. I didn’t know what to say. When the song was finished, he explained that his ex wife was a nurse. She had cheated on him repeatedly and dragged him through a very muddy divorce. I listened and nodded. Meanwhile, I’m thinking that I’ve got to get out of here. He finally stopped crying and carrying on about his horrible ex wife. I opened the door and thanked him for the date….THEN he had the nerve to ask if he could see me again. I shook my head and said, “Dude, you’re not ready to date yet. You need to get over your wife before you date anyone else.”
I closed the door and went home. I couldn’t help but laugh, because I knew I would be telling this story for years to come.

Him and I

Cross my heart, hope to die
To my lover, I’d never lie
He said “be true,” I swear I’ll try
In the end, it’s him and I
He’s out his head, I’m out my mind
We got that love, the crazy kind
I am his, and he is mine
In the end, it’s him and I, him and I

She does what she damn well please

Cut off the bottoms of my feet
Make me walk on salt
Take me down to the police
Charge me with assault
A smile on her face
She does what she wants to me

(That’s right)

She don’t care what kind of wounds she’s inflicted on me
She don’t care what color bruises that she’s leavin’ on me
‘Cuz she’s got freedom in the 21st century

(Alright)

(Listen)

Two black gashes in her hands
All she thinks about
No responsibility no guilt or morals
Cloud of judgement
Smile on her face
She does what she damn well please

(Right)
And she don’t care about the things people used to do
She don’t care that what she does has an effect on you
She’s got freedom in the 21st century

(Aye aye aye)
Cut off the bottoms of my feet
(Cut off the bottoms of my feet)
Make me walk on salt
(Make me walk on salt)
Take me to the police
(Take me to the police)
~ Jack White – Freedom at 21

Couldn’t Reach Your Ego

On my tip-toes
But I still couldn’t reach your ego
Guess I was crazy to give you my body, my mind
Don’t know what I was thinkin’ ’til now
Everyone thinks that you’re somebody else
You even convinced yourself

Couldn’t even see you through the smoke
Lookin’ back, I probably should have known
But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin’ alone

Loved me with your worst intentions
Didn’t even stop to question
Every time you burned me down
Don’t know how; for a moment it felt like heaven
Loved me with your worst intentions
Painted us a happy ending
Every time you burned me down
Don’t know how; for a moment it felt like heaven

And it’s so gut-wrenchin’ (Ooh, ooh)
Fallin’ in the wrong direction (Ooh, ooh)
How did you sweep me right off my feet?
Baby, I can’t keep
Fallin’ in the wrong direction
How did you sweep me right off my feet?
Right off my feet
~ Hailee Steinfeld – Wrong Direction

Claw Machines

Those claw machines work my nerves! They have the absolute cutest stuffed toys in them and I can’t work that damn claw to save my life. I will also never understand how so many damn kids get up in there to get stuck. Like, where are their parents?? Ya turn your back for 2 seconds and the little demons crawl up into a vending machine! I sure don’t wanna play it if a kid is the prize! *giggles*

Rough Week

It’s been a rough week full of tough decisions and its only Thursday! I’ve missed my last two group therapy appointments and I’m in serious need of some one on one with my therapist, luckily I have an appointment tomorrow. I’ve been avoiding someone close to me, because their lifestyle is toxic to me and despite the fact that I’ve asked repeatedly for some boundaries to be in place, this person refuses to show me even a modicum of respect.
It is absolutely heartbreaking to think that I might be losing a friend that I’ve grown to love so very much, but at the end of the day I must take care of myself. I’ve spent the last four years living in this dark hole of a life and as I try my hardest to pull myself out…I cannot allow anyone to hinder my growth. On the other hand, a true friend wouldn’t be so blatantly disrespectful, would they?
I mean, if I don’t set boundaries for myself and the people I allow in my life, I will only be putting myself back into that little people pleasing box, running around on auto pilot that has put me so far into the darkness I’m so desperately trying to escape. I want to enjoy what’s left of my life and I can’t do that if I continue to permit someone to consistently disrespect me. We tell each other all the time not to let our lovers do it, but we rarely approach the subject of friends. Sadly, that’s where I am right now and its a bridge I have avoided crossing for the better part of the past six months. *sighs*

Perfect Day

They both loved to read and all three of them loved the beach. He rarely had a week day off and wanted to surprise her in a big way. With the help of a good friend and the prediction of nice weather, he was able to arrange an area right on the beach that would set the tone. Netflix and chill was so daily that it wasn’t special anymore, but reading and chillaxing on the beach? Now that would be the perfect day.
