Going Sane in a Crazy World

My journey through life and the lessons I learn to help me grow spiritually.

Sane Friends

Do As I Say Not As I Do

Well last entry, what 2 hours ago I was like I want to really date today, but I know I'm not doing so for the right motivation today. So what do I do I get a date with Spa girl. Wasn't really shooting for it. I stopped by the spa to talk to the owner about next week's visit to my business meeting. Spa girl came out and talked to me. So close I could reach out and touch her. Anyway I was a man on a mission mode so I told her I would see her Friday at the block party. When I turned around she was like I need to clean the back of my neck up. ????????? I was like WTH? Then I realized she was talking about my hair. So she said come back in and she would do it. She's the hairdresser so she cleaned it up for me. I was like can I take you out for coffee to pay you back. I can't believe how easy it rolled off my tongue. She said yes she would like that. I told her we'll talk Friday and set something up to at least a better head then. On a side note she is not married. I didn't check for the ring today, but I know she lives with a roommate.

3 F*ckin' Strikes

Bastard blew me off. Third new patient this week. Call and make an appointment same day or prior and never show. They never answer the phone. Without him I'm one less than tying for the busiest month this year. Freakin' fuck turd. I might need to get an address also so I can drive to their house and drag them out by their ear.

Halloween feels like a bust this year. My Saturday party got cancelled and last night's event never really got off the ground. I'm dressed here at the office and it was fun to give out candy to all the kids from the daycare place around the corner. I gave out gummy body parts and chocolate eyeballs. The kids were very happy with that. I had to pick up a gift card so I stopped by Starbucks and got myself a drink and read for a while. I got many stares, but I wasn't the only one there dressed up. It was funny some staff from another Starbucks came in dressed as there drinks.
However I feel denied and when I get that feeling I feel I need to be compensated. So I'm battling with the desire for a relationship today. The old tape of it will save me and fill that hole I am feeling now. Not acting on it, but trying to keep my eyes in my head. I know the feeling will pass.

Now I just need to survive delivering pizzas on Halloween.

Halloween Sex Positions

Okay I think I've read them all when I found this little gem of an article. It was just too funny not to share. Have a Happy Hallowen.

Number 10 Ghost Rider
Before you start writing us letters about this one, we want to make it clear that we’re not suggesting you set your partner’s head on fire while she’s faced the other way in doggy style -- that would fall under "Mike Tyson sex positions." No, the Ghost Rider is much more humane, though slightly tougher on the eyes. The way it works is that when the female is riding the male, the man puts a white sheet over her head -- all while resisting the overwhelming urge to cue up the Ghostbusters theme on his stereo.

Number 9 Grave Robber
The key to this position is finding a successful mix between the sexual thrill of robbery and the somewhat unappealing odor of putrid human innards. The way it works is that you wait for your girlfriend to fall asleep, then you ransack your laundry hamper and surround her with dirty, dank clothes to mimic the atmosphere of a grave. Once you’ve buried your corpse, er… partner, you give her the unexpected thrill of luring her back into consciousness with oral sex.

Number 8 Tail in the Crypt
Let’s face it: The first thing that comes to mind when you project sexual deviancy on a high-pitched decomposing corpse is Michael Jackson; but don’t worry, our carnal take on the famous Tales from the Crypt TV series is much more legal. In this position, you and your partner make your way under your bed (the “crypt”) and engage in anal sex (the “tail”) -- we leave it up to you (the “crypt keeper”) to decided whether or not you’d like to annoyingly stimulate your partner with scratches to her back.

Number 7 The Scarecrow
Aside from Michael Hutchence, a little bondage never (seriously) hurt anyone, and this sex position is no different. One partner is strapped to a cross-brace and must act as if they have no skeletal system. The other partner gets to enjoy the benefits of having someone strapped to a cross-brace in front of them. That involves groping, teasing, prodding, and just about anything else you want, just as soon as you get those cumbersome overalls unhooked. Best of all, when you are done, there’s all that straw to help clean up.

Number 6 Bobbing for Boobies
Firstly, despite intense pressure from certain members of High School Musical, this position will not be entitled “Bobbing for Nobs.” With that point out of the way, this sex position is pretty self-explanatory: Fill up a bathtub with two or more breasts, stick your hands behind your back, and bob your head in until you catch yourself an endorphin rush.

Number 5 Sleepy Bat
Courtesy of the public education system and some unpleasant personal experiences, we are extremely aware that it is unwise to put unprotected genitals anywhere near a sleeping bat -- that is, unless, your partner has assumed the role of a blind, flying carnivore for the evening. In this sex position, your partner will require a stable pull-up bar or shower pole with which to hang upside down. Once she is comfortably locked in, position your mouths at each others' genitals and engage in 69-ing until the sunlight comes up or the blood rushing to her head causes your partner to pass out.

Number 4 Night of the F*cking Dead
Squirming, convulsing and moaning isn’t something that only happens at Jack in the Box; case in point: “Night of the F*cking Dead.” In this ingenious brain-dead sex position, partners start off in a standard missionary position, but once the male has comfortably entered the female, that’s when things really get dumb, er… fun. Specifically, neither partner is allowed to use their arms or legs to support themselves during intercourse, leaving both sex-starved individuals to be grunting, struggling and shaking in order to get off.

Number 3 Monster Mash
Only a blindfolded eunuch could watch Godzilla movies and not get riled up by the overwhelming sexual tension between Mothra and the radioactive lizard. That’s why we’re suggesting you and your partner try out the “Monster Mash” this Halloween. The premise is simple but potentially expensive, depending on the cost of the outfit you’re willing to invest in. Go down the costume shop, pick out costumes for you and your partner, then cut out sections around the genitals in each costume; unless you’re Paris Hilton, we assume you possess the mental powers to deduce the nasty act that should follow.

Number 2 Pumpkin Head
Jack-o’-lanterns are supposed to act as guides for lost spirits in the night. But in our twisted minds, they act as beacons for downright nasty things. While your girl is painting her face with orange and black makeup, you’ll cut a hole in a box to act as the table. Your girl will kneel down with her pumpkin-looking head poking out of the hole. You’ll stand in front of her, aim for the gaping black grin and put a candle of a different kind into the mouth of this jack-o’-lantern.

Number 1 Witches’ Brew
Wart of mute child, eye of albino newt… unless you’re Prince or Charlie Sheen, this stuff probably doesn’t turn you on. But here for Halloween is the first-ever sexy Witches' Brew. Though swingers would probably have an easier time accomplishing this one, a drunk girlfriend and the girl she kissed in college should suffice. The key to this position is all in the set up (and the alcohol): Fill a hot tub with brown food coloring, novelty eyeballs, Gothic candles, and two revved-up bisexual females. The bonus in this one is post-Witches’ Brew shower, in which you’ll either get to clean your partners or sit back and watch evil take its course.

So This is Where All the Dicks Hang Out

I finished up with my last patient last so I had to hightail it over to salsa class. Our first early one. Also dress up for Halloween so I changed shoes and socks while driving. Hey if you ladies can do make up I can do this. Anyway Marquita said it's right across the street from our usual club. 20 minutes later I still can't find the damn place. So I figure I'll head to 111's and wait for everyone to show up. Christine is there and she says that the stores across the street also have a backside row. Grrrr. So I hoped to catch the tail end of class. Turns out I'm the only one there. I think everyone is so use to coming out late that getting there early is going to take time. So we ended hanging out and getting snacks while we waited and waited. Slowly people started showing up, NOT in costumes. So Marquita and myself sort of stood out. More people came, but they were ALL guys. By 9:30 we had 8 guys and 0 women besides our teacher. Christine said she is too pregnant now to spin and the Wild women weren't there. A little after 10 I decided to cut out to get some sleep. One woman had showed up with another guy. When I was walking out W Salsa girl was walking in. (The W stands for Wendy so I can use it with different letters.)

So far I am 2 for 2 on new patient no shows. People have some decency and call to cancel. It's called having balls, get some.


YES! I've finally figured out how to change ART files to .jpeg. It seems it's an AOL thing and that was the problem of trying to find it. So here are last week's salsa pics.

TMI Tuesday

1. If they kept stats of your sex life like they do in sports, what would you lead the league in? what all time record would you hold? I would say lowest amount of partners. Mine is 3. I need a connection with the person I'm having sex with to make it anything more than masturbation with another person. Record? Hmm how about 2 1/2 years without sex while single or 20 months while married.

2. What song gets you in the mood to have sex? best music to fuck to? best music to make love to? I don't really equate music with sex. Something non intrusive since I'm not really focusing on it anyway.

3. Where is your favorite place to have sex in your house/apartment? the bedroom. It's just made for it. Relaxation, space, etc. Other parts are great to spark something though.

4. (girls) Have you sent or given your used panties to a guy? Do you know what happened to them? (guys) Have you taken/asked for a girls panties before? What did you do with them? (non-breeders) What is the protocol for this "tradition"? WTF is a non breeder? Is this a person that doesn't date and just masturbates then saves their own used underwear? Never asked for used. I did ask for a pair sprayed with her perfume though.

5. What makes a kiss a great to you? like pornography. I can't define it, but I know it when I feel it

Bonus: Who pays for a date? If the girl asks a guy out, does she pay? If you are interested in same sex partners, how do you determine who pays? I'm happy to pay, but I do like a woman to at least say thanks for it. If she doesn't I feel she is taking it for granted. I also think this is more of a young person's thing. The older I get most women don't really make a big deal out of it.

Tuesday's Gone

Surprisingly I'm awake today. I had to pull myself out of class last night. It was almost 11 and I knew I needed to get up early today. However I had several women want to dance with me. WTH? There are 15 other guys there. Guess I'm getting good. Also some of the women are getting more huggy with me. One of them I talked to for a little while last night. She's bubbly and attractive. However this guy always brings her and disappears. I don't know if he is her BF or brother or something. I think I might need to clarify. I'll give her a name if it's a go. The truly funny thing is W-Salsa girl and this girl Angie I can't tell apart if they come in separate. The only way I can tell is Angie has a wedding ring. When they are together I can tell easily. I hate when I goof.

Office wise the phone is still ringing for people to come in. So hopefully this continues. Now I just need them to show up.

When I was young I probably never had said this, but jeez a moustache stinks. It's itchy. I haven't shaved it for 2 days for my Zorro costume tonight. Argh it's an annoyance.

Grumble ... Grumble

Well it started as a nice day. A new patient on the books and a regular visit later in the day. I even got a call for another new patient on the way to work. Then it happens. The first new patient and the regular visit need to reschedule. The second is a no show. Day's over before it started. Oh well I have those phone calls to make.

Many people have asked who the people in the pics are from salsa. I was going to re post them, but for some reason they were .jpeg last night and today there .ART. I have no program to open the ART files for the blog. So if you do want to know who everyone is like the wild women, W-Salsa girl and the such just email me and I can send it to you.

A long time ago I had planned not to work Halloween at pizza for obvious reasons. However I took next Saturday off for a Halloween party that has now been cancelled. Well I was informed we don't have to wear our uniform then and we can dress up if we want to lower our chances of being pranked on. In some of the districts it's to prevent being jumped, shot at or pistol whipped.

Did You Know?

Did you know that November is National Blogger Month? Well it is. I have no idea how to hook up the badge to the site, but if you want to join click here. The rules just blog everyday during November. Since I do that already not a major problem.

Hey Pics

I was looking at my salsa teacher's new site and it had pics of last week's class. Here's the one with me in it. You can see the wild women and the pregnant waitress that dances with us. Actually it was her birthday last week.

Weekend Update with Mike

A lot of gratitude the last few days. One of my patients who I've treated on and off over the years said I was physically looking very good than I use to. Then one of my online friends said the same about what is said in my blog. I know I'm making changes, but it is nice to hear the world is noticing. For me now a days it's the office that mirrors my life. It's limitations are my own and as I grow past them so does the office.

I couldn't get into my normal groove yesterday at Starbucks of reading or writing. So after a few window shopping trips I decided to stop by Blockbuster and get something to watch. A rarity for me. Anyway I finally rented Yo Yo Girl Cop.

It's the first time I've gotten to see one of these. They've been happening for 20 years now. Teenage girl, atomic powered yo yo. What more can you want? It was very enjoyable. Now I may try to find some of its predecessors.

I also got out the Dresden Files. I'm a big Jim Butcher fan and I love his books. So when I heard Sci-Fi had a series I was pretty excited. I only watched one episode and I'm not too impressed. We'll see how it goes, but the supporting cast characters were changed too much from the book.

Well I'm off I need to get a Zorro hat. I'll use that for salsa Tuesday since Zorro is easier to dance than a wizard.

The Hydrogen Droplets Continue

Three days of rain. Wow this is so weird. We haven't had more than a 5 minute down pour since the spring. So continuous rain is just so strange to see. It also makes delivering pizza a pain in the ass. Although I have to admit it only was pouring for one of my deliveries. The lady gave a nice tip. We also had 2 huge orders. One of 59 and the other of 37 pizzas. The store becomes a nightmare when this happens since it just destroys the natural flow and you just end up standing around while this one order gets made. The only other two incidents of the night were 1) the cheap fuck turd who wanted ALL of his change back. Hey pal let me leave your pizza in the middle of your lawn so you can come out here and get wet. 2) drove past L (I recognized her ass) and friend while they were walking their dogs. I know she was looking for my car since it has my office bumper sticker on it.

The Sign Up Ahead Reads .....

All I needed was some Twilight music playing tonight. I got out of pizza a little early so I was able to go over to meet the Geisha with time to spare. I walked in an knew the girl behind that desk wasn't here. Then I noticed her standing off to the side. We shook hands and said hello. She introduced me to everyone around while pointing out all the different nationalities then she asked if I wanted to sit at the bar with them while they worked. I was good with that. I ordered a drink and the Geisha brought me over a menu if I wanted anything. I got some sushi since I hadn't had any in a while and it was a while before the place closed. Now it's her call since she set this shindig up. Every once in a while she'd come over and tell me information. About the place, the people, not much about her. I talked to many people and even got some business for a friend. However two things started to occur to me as the time ticked away. 1) The Geisha was an attractive woman and 2) that this wasn't a date. As I had been marketing at the health fair she had marketed me for the restaurant. So my assumption was confirmed when she was like you can stay but I'm finished work and going home now. I had already finished eating so I told her I would be going. She told me to stop by again, bring friends, and that I knew people there now. I walked out feeling like I got my ass handed to me without a fight. The people and the food were good, but it was a weird experience.


A slow day to end the week. I have a ton of phone calls to make, but just can't get the umph to do them. I guess Monday it is. No real anxiety with seeing the Geisha tonight. I didn't start it so I don't feel as I've invested as much. However the one thing I'm a little nervous about is picking her out. When I met her I wasn't on look for anyone. The only reasons she is stored in my brain is a) she is a woman (couldn't remember a guy to save my life) b) she won my door prize c) she was the only Asian there. Now you might say hey she might be the only Asian tonight. WRONG! I'm meeting her at the Japanese restaurant where she works. So I'll just look for the Asian lady with black hair. Oye. She said she would be up front. I was hoping she would be in the back so I could ask for her. Now I'm hoping she is the only one up front. Could lose a lot of brownie points by not recognizing her. I feel like Jerry Seinfeld "Mulva?"

Ah Sweet Music

While I was working out at the gym today I was watching one of the many TV's. On one was Roy Williams. If you know who he is your one step better than me. All I know is that he is a professional athlete. Anyway for some reason he volunteered to work at Pizza Hut since he didn't realize you tip pizza delivery people. He though only waitresses and I forgot the other. Anyway it was great to hear him tell stories of delivering pizzas and getting stiffed. He was speechless he said when he gave some one their pizza and they closed the door on him. LMAO. It was funny to hear how angry he got since it happened several times. Welcome to the party pal. The good thing is that he'll always tip now.

I get asked this a lot. The average tip is $3-5. Anything less is considered cheap. Forget if you do under a dollar since that's just insulting. Over $5 and you will never be forgotten on any future orders.

Movie Time

Well it's been a while since I saw a movie in theaters. I think Transformers was the last one. Anyway Paper boy gave me a pass for a screening of Dan in Real Life with Steve Carrell. It was a romantic comedy and I would say a good date movie. It was nice to actually get out. Dancing is fun, but this was something different.

Well if the office stays its course tomorrow. This week will tie for the busiest for the year. Now if these weeks would just become the norm I'd be happy.

Oh It Be Alright

Well with many emails back and forth the Geisha and I are finally meeting tomorrow night. After pizza I'll head over to where she works to meet her. My wonder with her is if she is "in for a penny, in for a pound." In our back and forth missives she gives a lot and is forward then pulls back at the end. Hopefully this will not be the case face to face. She has a rich background so their will be no shortage of conversation.

Another One Bites the Dust

For as long as I can remember I've had a reoccurring dream. I've had a gun that works very well. I can shoot it no problem. However somewhere along the way I am faced with a threat that I need to gun to help me. At that point there is always a problem. The gun becomes too heavy for me to aim, the trigger to hard to pull, etc. All saying the same thing. When I need to protect myself I am unable to do so. It changed for a little while when I was taking kung fu. Then my punches were ineffective.

Over the last 7 years I've worked on this problem and the dreams have come less often. A side benefit is that I haven't had a nightmare since. So last night while I dreamt I found myself with a gun again in my hand. Zombies were all around (guess my dreams keep up with the holidays) and we were loading people onto an elevator to get them out of the building. Every shot took out a zombie. Guess the problem is solved and it was fun to boot.

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Halloween Costumes

Since it is October and thoughts of what to be for Halloween abound I thought I would remember my past costumes.

1. Jedi Knight - This was fun since it was the first time dressing up again.
2. Cowboy - not too original, but too much arguing with the ex kept me from being creative
3. Biker dude – Eric was so sick this year
4. Prisoner of my student loans - this got a lot of laughs
5. Liono from Thundercats - a group of us were suppose to go as the whole Thundercats. Besides my friend John and myself everyone else chickened out. Fuck turds.
6. 30’s gangster – here’s the ex and me
7. Medieval thief - it was a simple costume to go to a college party
8. Zorro – it was an easy costume. Can’t see much of it in the pic, but Eric looked so cute
9. Vampire - this was before the dental work
10. Werewolf - everyone loved the face on this, but I couldn't find a pic
11. Medieval warrior – this was a fun year. We were all in college and went as a theme.
12. Wizard - this is this year's choice. Pics will follow.
13. Mowgli the Jungle Boy – not a Halloween pic, but this is what everyone calls it

Say Goodbye Phillip

I was informed by one of my patients this morning that the City of Norfolk voted their smoking ban in restaurants and bars in affect. They had been wanting to do it for a while, but feared that if they did everyone would come to the beach. Yeah just what we want all the smokers. So the agreement was that Virginia Beach will follow suit. So hopefully this is my last morning of coughing up a lung from second hand smoke.

OMG I hated having a patient early this morning. I so wanted to sleep. Still do. Just so tired. I was able to squeeze in one snooze, but that was just a tease.

Now I think physical and occupational therapist smoke crack. After my Mom had her second stroke a year and a half ago. She went into rehab before I moved her up here. We got her report and it was hardly that bad. Drove her off the lot and boy was she a lemon. It was a totally different person than in the reports. So when I went last week and the OT was like we're getting your Mom to move her right hand it was great. Visiting today Mom still can't use the hand. I have no idea if this is so they can continue therapy since Medicare is really a sphincter on this kind of stuff.

Salsa Tuesdays

God I wish they would pass a smoking ban in bars down here. Right now it's up to the owners. Someone was smoking a cigar tonight and boy was it stinking up the place. For some reason we're dressing up for next Tuesdays get together. Hey I love dressing up, but to also do salsa. I don't know?

Anyway the Wild women group was weeded down this week although the 2 queens of the bunch were there to make up for it. Although I had to admit they were pretty tame tonight. Lori the bartender decided to join us tonight after many, many declines. She gave up on it pretty soon. I'm not quite sure if it was the 4" heels or the 2 honeydews strapped to her chest by shoe strings. It might have just been the combination of the two. I knew I couldn't watch her dance it was waaaaaaay too distracting.

I do wish there was more chemistry between W-Salsa girl and I. I know she likes me and I think she is very attractive, but I know every time we talk that it's not going to work. Glasses was back this week and I think she has moved off of me. I knew right off the bat we weren't a match. It was re-enforced tonight when she didn't no the difference between the male and female symbols.

I finally used some free time today to look in the thrift stores for some dancing shoes. Found some on the second try and got to try them out. Yes they do make a world of difference. Just have to watch I don't slide too much.

Happy to hear that we are going to make the get togethers earlier. Even the youngin's are staring to feel the lack of sleep withdrawal. Also Marquita is going to have class across the street at a dance studio first then come over to the club to practice which will be nice since Tuesdays has become a almost non-teaching night.

Women Over 40

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40:

60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS)As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her!

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?', here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

TMI Tuesday

1. What are your 7 favorite tactile things that turn you on? Sex (like oral, or penetrative) cannot be an answer. (Examples: silk, light tickling, etc). Nothing out of the ordinary: light touch, nibbles, kisses, a firm squeeze and repeat.

2. What are your non-genital erogenous zones and what do you like done to them? My neck, definitely my neck, just nibble on it and I’m in Heaven.

3. What sounds get you sexually charged? A soft moan

4. After losing your virginity, what is the longest you’ve gone without penetrative sex? Two and a half years

5. What is your least favorite sexual position? Hmm I don’t think I have one. Why don't you like it? N/A

Bonus (as in optional): If you could sexually dominate or submit to 5 people - any 5, currently living or deceased - which 5 would it be? WTF? I have no idea.

Call Ripley's

Believe it or not we had enough women for salsa tonight. Actually is was completely even at 15-15. I think the workshop especially for women helped get them out there and then the partner dancing sewed it up nicely. I tell you if I didn't have to try and figure out the beat from the song I'm a very good dancer. I know weird for me to say, but the compliments flew tonight. However when I need to decipher the music forget about it. So much of my focus goes to that, that I footwork lacks. A yes a reminder to send my teacher a email telling her to burn me some music to practice by. I fully understand now when Adina our coordinator says this is how she stays thin. Tell you fast dancing for a while wow. I walked out tonight and I could feel the muscles growing on my thighs and ass. I felt bad walking out during class, but I know I'm going to feel worse when the alarm clock goes off at 6:45.

WOW! What a Weekend

And I must have missed it, but my patients didn't. The phone rang and rang and rang this morning. Everyone is hurting and wants to come in. I was popular with the ladies last week and now this week with my patients which is always good. It's always wierd to have to squeeze people in since I'm use to having a break between patients. Well let's hope the trend continues. Now everyone run around outside blindfolded with scissors in thier hands.

I had an appointment with my bank's financial person. I have enough people outside the institution do do anything if I had actual money, but I was wondering if I could get better rates on my business accounts like not paying monthy service charges. Anyway what I was surprised to find was that when we talking about an overdraft protection the only thing stopping me was my bankruptcy from 2 years ago. My numbers were all still good which I was really surprised to hear. However before all this started I was around 800 so it was heartwarming to know my numbers were still good.

Got an even stranger email from the Geisha this morning. She's still pretty strong on me stopping by and gave me her cell number, but it's still weird to see what her intentions are. I'm waiting for my experts to give me their say so. If you want to join in let me know.

The Weekend Wrap Up

I'm beat. The last 3 nights of pizza have been busy as hell. The oven kept hemorrhaging pizza's all night long. I couldn't even get out there when I was suppose to. However I did make some boku money which will help with bills plus I got a free Spiderman hat to match our new promotion. Yes free. I'm amazed as you are. I could actually wear it under normal circumstances. Having no time from getting up this afternoon to getting back to work to do laundry I had to use a college tick I heard of. I sprayed my shirt with Frebreeze. Worked really well. I was surprised. Guess all that money kids spend on beer in college is worth it to come up with an idea like this.

I was hoping to stop over where the Geisha works last night even though her second email was difficult to understand. However time did not allow it and she never responded to mine so I will just chalk it up. It was a fun couple of days to be attention of many women and as ACG said it lets me know I still got it.

I have to thank Steph for giving me a great new marketing idea for the office. Free consults for women in revealing shirts. Hell I can be magnanimous it could be a revealing dress or skirt too. Hell just show some skin and I'll be happy.

Well since all my prospects have dried up I think I'll stop by to see Spa girl. I was going to stop by last week, but everything else came up. No real rush as always.

Sometimes I Hate Being a Doctor

Today was one of those days. Another of the attendees of the health fair stopped by today for a consult. I knew what she had been diagnosed with, but the chances of a human adult having it were so slim lottery odds were better. So I told her to stop in for a free consult. She was the one with the low cut top I mentioned earlier. Anyway today's outfit was the opposite. Actually it went very low in the middle, but way out to the sides. Thank you for the free show. It was a true workout to stay focused on her eyes. I couldn't help her. She was in fact diagnosed correctly. We had a nice little talk. Sucky thing is that she would be a person I would ask out. Although my red flag is that she has a problem that she is still dealing with and that always sparks a higher interest level for me. That old I can help save you crap. Anyway she came to me in a professional capacity so I let her drive out of my life without a word said.

The Geisha's return email was almost at odds with the first, even confusing my crack team of female professionals. How the dating volume got turned up so high in a few days is anyones guess. Now I know why some people say they stay out of the game. However for me it's like lotto. You have to be in it to win it.

Must Be The Smile

Okay I have to admit my ego is flying high tonight. With She's sister thinking I'm ssooooo hot and the general consensus of the Geisha email is that she's very interested in me. I'm feeling mighty good. I do want to thank everyone that helped me decipher her email. I knew what she meant, but couldn't believe it since our whole interaction was me taking her blood pressure and instructing her on how to use the body wrap she won. When Tina asked me about her all I could remember was good stuff with the only thing negative being her stern face. The original snag I was thinking was our age difference with her being much older than me. However I remember when I first started dating again and I went out with a woman 10 years older than myself. Nice lady just not enough chemistry or something. My therapist had wanted me to stay in contact with the suggestion that it would be good for me. Never did. So with the Geisha I have nothing to lose. I'll email her back since I'm really busy all this weekend I'll ask if she is free during the week.

Good News

Visited my Mom this morning and she was over in rehab. She was in the big circle when I got there. They said she was finished but figured they would let her stay to have fun. I asked if she wanted to stay or go out and she said she wanted to stay. She said she was having fun. I think it's a lot different from over in section. The colors are bright and there things happening. In her section (Alzheimer's and dementia) I know they take them out to do activities. I think some of the residents aren't able to cope with all of it. Mom just sat there, but I'm happy if she is happy. Anyway I got to talk with the occupational therapist and she's been working with Mom to help her to eat on her own again. Like I've been told it all depends on if Mom likes it or not. However she has been giving her electrical muscle stimulation and she says that Mom is starting to use her right hand which is good.

When 1 Window Closes a Rock Gets Thrown Through Another

Well I emailed She's sister last night. Nothing to lose. Anyway Vanessa emailed me back. I had a funny feeling when She wouldn't say her age. Vanessa said I was too old for her that she had been looking at my website for a pillow and had been why didn't She hook up with me. And She had said she would set Vanessa and me up. We discussed health a little bit and I offered her to call or stop by to learn more about the profession.

So I emailed everyone from the health fair Wednesday offering them to come in for a free consultation. The woman who won my door prize emailed me back. She gave me her chiropractic history (age 59) then where and when she works. Also the offer for us to get more acquainted if I'm in the area of her work where she goes by a different name. I actually had to read the email a few times cause I felt like I was having a stroke in trying to understand it. Can this be what I think its saying?

The Plot Thickens

WARNING: If you didn't read the last entry go there now. Don't pass go. Don't collect $200.

Well it seems a picture of me is circulating since She said she showed her sister a pic of me. Her response was I'm told,

"Oh my gosh he is soooooooooooo hot.... ‘he is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!!"

I'm not quite sure if her sister wanted that information shared. LOL.

Blind Dating

The phone rang a little while ago. I hate it when people I sort of know just zoom into conversation and I didn't catch there name. Anyway this phone call was to set me up with her sister. Me I'm still trying to figure out who the fuck this is. She's asking if I'm married, single, age? Me I'm laughing cause I feel like I'm on Candid Camera. So I figured I knew who it was, it was She. Her mind works this way and at this speed. She figured since her sister was a physical therapist we would make a could match since we could talk about bones and such. Hey reality and my life are weird enough that I don't have to make this stuff up. So she hung up and I was still reeling from the drive by.

So I open the email she sent me. It has her sister's email address and that she is cute and funny. No name or anything. Not ever does her sister even know who I am. LMAO. Weirdly enough the first thing in my mind when She called was that this was some indirect way for her to go out with me. Me paranoid? Damn straight. Seen enough weird shit in my life to be that way.
Thinking back I guess at some point in the conversation I agreed to it. What the hell do you write to a person you have no idea about?

Fun at the Fair

Well the health fair went well. I got at least one solid patient out of it and a few military people that ALWAYS need to check there schedules. I was happy my patient won the grand prize since she drove a long distance to come. She always supports me in my events so it was a $500 personal chef cook. Very nice.

I am always truly amazed at how low a woman can wear a top and not have her breast fall out. It really goes against physics. I noticed this lady as soon as she walked in the gym. She ended up coming over to ask questions. I felt like asking, "aren't you scared their going to fall out, especially when you start working out?"

The true comedy of errors was when we were helping put the chef's stuff back in his minivan. Rich had parked it for him, but since I got something out of there he asked me where it was. So I told him at the end of the line. So he drives back up and we open it and I'm looking. This doesn't look like his van. But the key worked. So we start loading and there is just extra stuff that wasn't there before. But the key worked. So we went in and asked the chef. We had the wrong van. So we had to unload it and put it back where it belong. Then got the right one. Different companies and everything.

I need to contact my ex since the phone still doesn't work right. Eric called during the fair and I had to go and I told him I would call him back. The customer ended up being a complete asshole. So when I tried to call back nothing. RRRRRR!!!! This sucks.


My landlord is gone for a few days holiday and as always the first night or two I don't sleep well with different sounds in the house. So when my alarm clock went off this morning I decided to sleep in since I didn't have anything till the afternoon. Trying not to feel guilty about it, but I know I need to be in good form for tonight's health fair. Pushing myself to not get up would have been a poor choice.

Other than that it is a slow day with some fleshy images from last night still playing in my head. So I'm trying to keep focused

Salsa Tueday

I was very surprised to walk into the club tonight and find a crowd for salsa. WTH? A lot of the Monday night crowd was there plus the wild women of last week and friends (more in a sec). I plopped down next to W-salsa girl. I got to talk to her casually, but there is not enough chemistry for me to pursue anything. It was funny she had the most common reason I found women to be taking salsa. Weight loss. LOL. Bizarre. The rest of the females of our group I think are attractive, but not enough chemistry.

On to the wild women. They were back again and brought friends while dumping the men. I had to admit they were a little calmer this week although their ring leader was still as feisty. However their young friends they brought. Holy hell! I saw more skin on these women then you would see on a plumber's crack. One of them had 2 anti-gravity devices attached to her chest. Some were nice others crude, but not for me. We barely had enough guys to cover all the women. However they were just too many people in a small place an the wild women are just too loud to be taught over. So while we did learn some nice moves it was under harsh conditions. I was bummed I wasn't able to dance with anyone at my level or above to practice more advanced moves I did at least get to practice what we learned.

TMI Tuesday

1. What was the first movie you saw on a date? Geez your making me really work the brain cells here. I think it was the Shocker. Some low budget horror flick. Yes I hate horror and yes I saw it for the girl.
2. Who was the first person you kissed on a date? Dawn

3. Where was the first place you ever "parked" (on a date)? Reis Field the Rockaways

4. Have you ever gone on a date with someone you met via the internet? Yes plenty of times. If not, would you? N/A

5. What is the most romantic thing you have done on a first date? Brought a flower which I do on most first dates unless I know the woman likes something better.

Bonus (as in optional):Describe the best date you have ever been on. I guess we're still talking first dates here. I would say it was with this girl Colleen. She wasn't in the right space for dating, but boy was she funny. I hadn't laughed that hard in a long time and never that much on a first date.

The Lame List

When I read Cinnkitty's blog I knew I was going to be tagged. So the rules of this is that I make a list of 5 things that I do, did or like that I’m proud of, but that others may think are totally lame. LOL this is most of my life.

  1. Everything I collect goes in alphabetical order. Books, CDs, movies (anime is separated as is DVDs from VHS). If I don’t collect it then I care what order it goes in. A place for everything and everything in it's place. Please don't think I'm neat cause I'm not just organized.
  2. Yes you can borrow my pen, but I’m going to watch you because I want my pen back. For this reason I never lose my pen. My pen is mine so get your own damn pen.
  3. I collect Japanese gashapon. However I only get them when I finish watching a series as a trophy thing.
  4. I paint tiny figures about a 1 ½” high for sci-fi war gaming. Although I haven’t played for a while I still am proud of my painting prowess.
  5. I love Pixar movies so yes you will find me sitting in the theater by myself without a child. Hey I’m comfortable with my inner child.

I'm not big on tagging people, but if you would like to play go right ahead.


Comedy Improv was hilarious as always and a great way to spend a Sunday night. April was a good sport since she became the star of the show with the continuous "April has a huge vagina" comment that dominated a number of games. Yeah that top hat of hers just slowly sunk over her entire head as the jokes flew. One thing I realized looking and interacting with April is that I probably wouldn't be able to be friends with CPA girl. April and I only went a few times and it was fun, but not enough chemistry. So I see her every month at the event since she is the MC and I think hey she's attractive and I know why I went out with her. However in the back of my head is the notion to go out with her again. I would never ask, but the thought is there. Now CPA girl I felt a LOT more connected than I did April. I don't think I could make the transition. I mention this because enough people say since we hit it off so well to be friends. Some people maybe able to do it, but not me.

My Past Still Haunts

For me talking and sharing always reveals something I need to change to move on in life. Looking over my stats for the year in the office shows double the amount of new patients than last year, but very little of an increase in office revenue. The realization is that I am still taking care of everyone else and leaving myself in the cold. An age old problem. I'm speeding people through care to make it affordable for them and leaving myself in poverty. Not helpful. So I need to make at least $500 per new patient coming in a month. Anything else and I'm slashing my own throat. I'm not looking to add anything that doesn't need to be down, but better teaching of what needs to be done to make them healthy. I'm a fast learner, but I know everyone else isn't.

Also today I was looking back to see what I have learned from my relationships this year. It actually started when I was drinking my sweet tea. A smile formed on my face when I remembered I had gotten this from CPA girl as a way to cut back on my soda intake. L had taught me to relax in my relationship as well as reconnect with my sexual side. April reminded me how much fun it is just to ask someone out of the blue.

That's What I'm Talking About

1:18 pm. Ah what a glorious time to get up after going to be at midnight the night before. To feel rested is a good thing. Also I don't have to work pizza for the next 4 nights. Wow that is going to be weird. Plus I need to budget my spending money until then.

Well the teenager pizza poll says I'm a hottie as was yelled out last night after I delivered to a slumber party. LOL. I have to agree with one of the other drivers. People who stiff need to be stabbed with a pen. "Madone de mia" I can scream when I plunge it into there arm. Oh by the way that is fuck you in Sicilian.

Other than that I'm going to take it easy today like yesterday. Do some writing and relax until I meet up with friends tonight for some comedy improv.

The Boy Talk

I've already had the grade school sex talk with Eric years ago and will continue to talk to him about it when he asks questions. No this is about fighting and boy society. Eric got jumped today at a party with another boy tackling him and repeatedly punching him in the neck. I was happy hear that there were grown ups there to put an end to it. Eric did say he went to the ER, but the wait was to long so he went home where he took some Motrin and was feeling better. I informed him that it would hurt again in the morning. Eric was angry and confused. He didn't know the boy and all the other kid wanted was a balloon. Eric had one and that was it. We talked about how he was feeling which he said he was angry. I was hoping to get why he was angry, but we kept getting side tracked. I let him know it was okay to feel that way since the other boy had hurt him and destroyed the rest of the party for him. Eric also wanted revenge and that was why I wanted to know the reasons for his anger. I know anger is usually a response to feeling helpless which can drive most people to do stupid stuff. Eric said he didn't fight back during the incident. I knew it was more from him not knowing. I had hoped this stuff wouldn't happen till fourth grade, but I guess Eric being the tallest kid in class has made him a target. He hinted about it and I told him I would teach him how to protect himself when I saw him next. This seemed to make him very happy. I remember being in his position growing up. Boys fight its an unwritten law. A pecking order will be started by those that know no better. I have to admit that this all came at a good time since I was starting to feel like I no longer had a son.

Shit & Pizza

It's been a long time since I've stepped in dog shit. Actually it's been so long I can't remember when the last time was. I know Eric has stepped in it a few times when we were all together since I was the one cleaning it. Anyway this topic comes up since I stepped in it tonight. When you do step in it its like a stink bomb went off. All the moist smelly stuff inside was just all squeezed out on the bottom of your shoe. Let me tell you it's even better when you have sneakers with all the little indentations. What truly sucked is I didn't really have anything to clean it with in my car. So I dragged my foot around as best I could to dislodge most of the crap (pun intended). Then when I got back to pizza I just hosed it down with cleaner and pried the shit out. Oh what fun work.

I was bummed that the sale sweatshirts were gone. I was handed the clothes sheet. I had my options of the sweatshirt, windbreaker, or parka. Parka? WTH? I'm not delivering pizza by dog sled in Nome Alaska. My manager is telling me how nice and warm it is. A) it's $55 B) it has the logo on it C) I'm not working here for the rest of my life. So I went with the sweatshirt and I'll put a thermal shirt on when it gets cold.

Dude, I'm So Wasted

Trying to pry my ass out of bed was not as bad as yesterday, but took awhile. I really could feel how drained I was at the gym this morning. My normal weights were really heavy and I had to struggle through my normal sets. I really need to rest over the weekend to replenish my energy.

On the dating front it has been a quiet week since I've been consumed with my Mom and knew dealing with any women would be bad. I can use a woman to forget all my problems too fast so I always walk very carefully during those times. I haven't seen Spa girl all week so next week I'll head over to her place and see if she is around. In the meantime Cat girl emailed me back. I wrote her a while ago and had wrote her off, but she seems to have sporadic Internet usage. As an aerobics teacher she's health oriented which is good, but not quite sure she is too much. In that I mean just slow with the relationship and not just dump it all. So we'll see.

Being Me

Thanks Loving Annie and Bottle Blond for the just being human comments. I knew that to be true when I was sharing with my friend Paul this morning. I didn't feel like dealing, but I had patients to deal with. Years ago when I was married I would just push through since my ex would have problems if I wasn't up to snuff. Only could be one sick person in the house. Anyway in not being human I would really over draw myself in the emotional problem only to make things worse. So this morning was the situation again and for me to make a choice. I let myself be human and it all worked out. I can't say I was 100%, but by the time I was doing pizza I was happy. I did good by my patients and had even set up a really good marketing plan with members of my networking group. I'm still emotionally drained and tired. I truly can't believe I use to live this way 24/7 when I was married. Now I know why I have so much energy and am happier now. The biggest thing is I don't have any pain. It hurt so much to turn my neck Monday through Wednesday. To be pain free is so great.

Not too much exciting in pizza tonight. A lot of stiffs, found out my manager was in College Girls Gone Wild 2002, the prepares were discussing the pros and cons of ass sex, and I ordered $5 on sale sweatshirt from the company. Papa Johns employees can only wear there stuff. $5 sweatshirt beats the hell out of how much a freakin' jacket will cost. Since I'm not standing outside in the cold all night like valet I'll survive the quick run to people's doors.

Thursday Thirteen

The Last Thirteen Things I’ve Seen on DVD

1. Big Trouble in Little China – Just a great hookie movie.
2. 300 – This is such a guy movie and Miller’s visualization brought to film are simply amazing
3. Casino Royale – Actually the only Bond book I read. While Connery is still #1 in my book I liked Craig’s raw and gritty portrayal of 007.
4. Babylon 5 season 1 – Oh I wished I had more money. Best Buy had them all dirt cheap a few months ago. I saw the whole series when it was first on and I loved it. Now going back I really see how it was all scheduled out from the beginning.
5. Two & Half Men season 1 – one of 3 shows I watch a week on TV. I never got to see these and I think I pulled something laughing so hard.
6. Running Scared – this was the other half of my weekly watches way back when. It’s still as funny.
7. My Super Ex Girlfriend – a great movie for us nerds. All I can say is the bed scene.
8. Animal House – I hardly ever see this movie, but it is just such a timely classic.
9. Seinfeld season 7 – The coming wedding of George and Susan nuff said.
10. Iron Man – I was impressed they did a great job of updating the mythos.
11. Goldfinger – One of my favorite Bond movies. With the Aston Martin, the hat and great characters like Oddjob and Pussy Galore.
12. Avengers Unlimited 2 – this was okay. Didn’t do as good of a job with it as they did with others.

13. Azumi – very enjoyable Japanese sword flick

Called my friend Paul on the way into work this morning. I told him I just didn't want to deal with anything or anybody today. Always hard in my profession. He said go back to bed. I said I had already hit the snooze 3 times, reset the alarm, and one more snooze before I got up this morning. I'm happy that all the physical pain from the stress is gone, but I just want to pull back into myself. I hate when I am like this especially when I have a busy day. The office is slow and I need these patients to meet their appointments and I'm in the whatever mood. Although the other half of me is still worried about money since money is dribbling in. To slow for this month and way too slow for making up money for last month.

Drugs are Bad

Never done recreational drugs myself and not a big user of pharmaceutical drugs. Here is a great documentary on the effects of drugs given to spiders. Enjoy.

The Stuff of Dreams

I awoke early this morning from one of my funky dreams. The ones I know are trying to tell me something. I just couldn't fully put my finger on it. The dream was my Mom and myself watching a movie in a theater. She turns to me and tells me that my breathe stinks. I turn to her and tell I'm not even speaking. She goes that it's even worse.

So I awake knowing I'm talking shit about my Mom, but what about. Well when I walked out of her meeting this morning with her caregivers I knew what it was. I've been experiencing a lot of muscle pain the last few days and even my friend yesterday said what's up with your Mom? I started getting my heads up during the meeting when I'm talking about the future and all the bad stuff that will come to pass and I'm smiling. That fuckin' smile that says everything is alright because I'm smiling. Such and old coping mechanism. My Mom is healthy as a horse, but the mini strokes are slowly taking her away. Memory, movement, speech all are slowly being robbed with each one. So we talked about a splint for her right hand since it no longer works so it wouldn't contract in time. I visit my Mom's unit often so I see the long term residents. The living dead posed in their silent screams.

I use to visit my Grandmother often until she had a stroke which left her completely insane. I didn't think I would be able to see her in her new personality, but she died later that week so it was a bridge I never crossed. I'm not looking forward to this because I know it's going to be a long trip. So I'm tense, sad, and stressed out today.


I love the salsa, but this late night club scene is not for me. The later it gets the more people pile in. For some reason the smoke factor goes up to as it gets later. Tonight's place allows smoking which sucks since all you want is a nice lung full of smoke when your dancing up a storm.

We had a humongous crowd tonight to start and we actually had to grab some guys from the bar to balance out the man-woman thing. Although the women started dropping out as we went on. I'm truly amazed at how many guys come with their girls and just sit there while they watch the ladies dance.

Our little dance group was invaded by a bunch of wild women tonight. I'm happy I wasn't pulled into a fight tonight. One of the wild women when I was dancing with her I always ask their name. Usually they just say it however she leans over and whispers it in my ear. It was said in such a way a switch went off in my head. She really danced the floor with me. So much so that her husband or boyfriend came up and had words with her when he separated us. After that I stayed with our group of people, it was just safer.

Most of the group is young so staying out late every night and going some place afterwards is not unheard of. The place tonight closes at 3 am. I tag out before I turn into a pumpkin. Overall it was okay tonight dance wise. Their was just too many people and the group of wild women really altered the flow of everything. On the other hand it was nice to bond a little better with the women in our dance group.

It is October Right?

I thought it was fall? The record here is 91 set back in 1936. Well the peninsula just beat it at 94 and we're still at 90. I had to put my AC on to run to the bank and grab some lunch. Middle of the summer I expect to burst into sweat when I walk outside, but any other time of the year is unacceptable.

Ugh Tuesdays are just rough for me. Late night dancing on Mondays and early business meeting on Tuesday don't mix. Topping it off with more late night dancing tonight is always exhausting. I'm so happy I decided to take Tuesday's off from pizza to relax before I went. Now I just need to keep myself awake until I go to the gym.

My fellow members at my meeting this morning showed me some love by calling me a Nazi. Ah at least I know I am doing my job.

TMI Tuesday

1. Wash up, cuddle or fall asleep? Cuddle of course. I love the feel of flesh. Wash? And lose the great smell of sex and your partner. Fall asleep? Depends on how tired I am.

2. Have you ever fake orgasms? Yes. Sometimes you just want to go to sleep. ;)

3. In any 24 hour period, what is the most number of time you have ever had sex? Wow I'm trying to remember I would say 5.

4. Have you ever had sex or give/received oral sex while you were driving a car? No. it was offered, but I knew there was no way I would be able to drive in a straight line.

5. What do you think the average number of sexual partners your sex has in their lifetime (so for me a male)? Do you think most people lie when asked? Hmmm I'll guess 8. Do I win? Lying? I really don't know. I guess not.

Bonus (as in optional):Can men and women be "just friends?" (Explain) Yes. I've always had more women friends than men. For me women talk more about their feelings than guys do. If you were a "couple" first I don't think so. Just too much baggage there.

Mystery Solved

Forget the elliptical and do salsa. My instructor was saying how are steps are just like being on an elliptical. Jeez dance 2 hours and I now knew why all my pants were becoming tight around the thighs and no where else. Hell I left the club with me jeans tighter than I went in. We started later tonight than usual and way under girled. 3 girls to 8 guys. I finally found out I only been doing this for 6 weeks so I felt real good about my progress and did well tonight. I did meet W-salsa girl tonight. I thought she was attractive and then we got to dance a while together. I played stupid since I thought she was the married girl from last week. Lucky for me she wasn't. She says we danced before over at the Tropicana. We got to talk a little and she said she was coming tomorrow night to dance. I'm hoping so we can talk more. I feel more chemistry with her than I did with Spa girl. I think Spa girl falls into the category that she likes me and I know it so that is increasing my attraction. I don't know if there is enough chemistry there. Hence how well I was able to think things out when we together. So I will put her on the back burner since she is right across the way from the office. I tell you it is a little different for me. I'm use to see a girl I like, pounce, and ask her out. Trying to not pounce anymore. It is easier when I know I will see the woman again.

Columbus Day

God I hate these Monday holidays. Most people think that I would be busier on these days, but the opposite is true. Most of my patients want to get away from it all when they come in and a Monday holiday just ain't it. It becomes a test of boredom. I actually forgot about the holiday. Not living with Eric anymore I have no idea about most holidays anymore. I was going to go to the gym this morning then I realized as I was hopping in bed last night that it would be closed due to the holiday. So that coupled with a dead day I slept in a little later this morning.

Visited my Mom this morning and I got to talk to the nurse. She said Mom never speaks. Only when I'm around which I found interesting. She also said Mom hit another resident this morning something she has never done before. I know when she was in assisted living every blue moon she would act strange. In helping her into the wheelchair this morning I realized Mom's whole right side is weaker now. So it will be something else for the list on Wednesday.

B Movie

I finally got to see one of my all time favorite B movies from who else John Carpenter. It's Big Trouble in Little China. I use to watch it every week when I was younger. I got it cheap about a month ago and it's been sitting around. It is truly hookie, but so enjoyable. Takes me back to a long time ago before I was married.

Other than that I finally pulled my writing back out. Jeez it's been April since I last wrote. I re-edited some stuff a few months ago, but nothing new. I have about 7 more chapter to go, before I go back over it to make sure it flows.

Spa girl won't be back at work till Tuesday. If I don't see her around that day I'll stop by on Wednesday under the pretense of getting what she is bringing for the next cook out since she volunteered. Speaking about dating reading through my blogs today and one of my dating ones that gives men advice. It was great. Send women mixed signals. That was almost as good as pretend that your not interested. It's really funny when I talk to women and they state that they read the same thing on their end. No wonder no one can find a date. Everyone is sending mixed signals while pretending their not interested. I think it's a big conspiracy by the online dating people.

Today is Sunday

I got the Hardest Worker Thumbs up from my manager last night at pizza and I'm a wild man comment for doing 25 runs last night. I was pretty happy with it. Other than that it was a pretty normal night. Rich people giving crap tips, assholes stiffing, but hey everyone was clothed.

Wow it's back to August here. It's hot and humid. The kind of weather you step outside and you instantly begin sweating. I was thinking of going to the park to enjoy some sunshine and relax, but the thought of sitting and sweating kind of spoiled the mood. So I've made my way back home and will relax on the bed in the AC.

It is weird and my mind still hasn't caught up with me. For most of my life I have lived in some kind of chaos. Talking on the phone with friends daily has been a testament to that as I talked out the problems. So it is weird to just be giving a few tidbits of information to my friends instead of War & Peace length conversations. My usual negative spin is that I want something to talk more about then I realize that usually involves a lot of problems. I'll just enjoy the easier times. Hopefully insurance checks will come in this week, the office will be busier, and people will send the money they owe me. Once I get out of this little financial depression I'll be happier.

My Thoughts

Well after my entry earlier today MK Lady gave me a call to apologize for not making the cookout. Since she's a girl I asked her about the ring thing. She like most of you said that it's a finger and if a decorative ring fits it goes on. WTH? It's the finger? It should be as empty and a nun's hoo haa! Come on ladies work with us. Guys have a hard enough time figuring you out as it is. Now rings that don't mean anything. Anyway I drove past the salon on my way for errands and Spa Girl was right there walking in front of me. She was also on her cellphone chatting away so I just honked and waved as I drove by. Guess it will have to be another time.
Pigs must be flying cause I had a nice conversation with the ex about the phone and Eric. She had gotten no messages and was wondering why I hadn't called. So she said she would get her phone looked at to see what the matter is. Do I believe her? Who the hell knows, sorry to say. She did state that her dad had taken a turn for the worse, but it seems he is left home alone since she said he won't pick up the house phone. I did realize why she didn't put him in a facility. All of his money would be funneled into his care and then she would have to get a job. She may be nuts, but she ain't stupid. Through all of this I did get a chance to actually talk with Eric. It's been a few weeks.

My Mom still can't use her right hand, but can raise the arm. She's not talking as much and I don't know why. Yes and no questions she'll just shake her head, but more complex she'll answer. This has started since last weeks TIA. So at her meeting next week I'll ask that she start speech therapy since if she looses that she'll really go down hill. Talking to my brother today I told him it's time for Mom to go. She's just fading way bit by bit and it's a real shame.

What's Up With the Ring?

Over the last few months I've noticed a trend of women wearing rings on their wedding finger that are more fashionable I guess. I've seen what looks like a red plastic band to today's silver with a lapis stone in it. Are these women married? What signal are they trying to broadcast? Why do I ask? Well it was our monthly cook out and each month we get more people from the complex to come. Anyway Spa girl came today. She was attractive and we talked backgrounds for a while. She needed a change is her reason for moving here. I figured divorce or something since she mentioned no husband. It seemed like she liked me, but then I noticed the odd ring on her finger. WTF? It's not a wedding ring in any conventional manner. So what is it then? We got broken up in the crowd of conversation so I didn't get a chance to hint around. Natural instinct says just ask her out, but I know I've been known to strike to soon. So maybe next time I see her.

The Road of Drama

I have to admit that a simple incident at pizza last night has been a major workout for me. It took me a while to get to it and many shares. However as I still do I focused on the physical which was Ark Man's rage instead of the spiritual problem which has always been my fear and anxiety on me taking care of myself. Hell I've taken care of this kind of stuff so much I'm a 5 star veteran, but for some reason that core fear that I can't take of myself is still there. While it is not as bead as it use to be this incident really struck a cord in me. I guess since I really don't deal with this crap anymore which is weird for me since it was such a daily occurrence for most of my life. Well that right their is a good indicator of how my life is going.

Pizza Drama

Working with pizza means working with not the brightest crayons in the box. The pettiness, bickering, etc. is truly amazing. For me its just pizza. While we all have a screw loose somewhere Car Girl and Ark Man seem to create the most. Mostly since they try to sneak extra orders for more money. You never know what your going to get and it's not going to be more than $5. So your going to screw someone else over for $5? So anyway Car Girl got into a heated discussion with another driver and Ark man got pissed at me. Usually I go along with his plan since I'm easy going, but usually I end up getting screwed. So tonight I declined and I ended up getting the extra order than him. Oh boy did I hear it. He still wasn't talking to me when I left. All of this is like who the hell cares, but Ark man is a rager and after our little incident I could feel myself anxious. That switch that would start the old tapes playing was not thrown, but I could feel it wanting to. To start the whole chaos factor in my head. I've dealt with this kind of crap growing up and in my marriage. I've got enough experience to know what to do and I took care of myself. It was just weird to have it come up at pizza of all places.

So all this gave me plenty of time to come up with some new rules for ordering pizza. Now I know you would think it would be an easy thing, but let me tell you it's not.

  1. Be home - do not call from someplace else and hope to be there first. Don't suddenly realize wait I just ordered a pizza and have no money and need to run to the bank. Lastly don't run out for anything until the pizza arrives.

  2. Be dressed - unless your a hot looking women that we won't care. Put some clothes on. WTF? Does ordering a pizza make you really horny? Do you have to have sex with your SO at that moment? Can't you wait to beat the bishop until after the food arrives.

  3. Listen for the doorbell - You've ordered food. Someone is going to deliver it to you. Maybe listening for a knock or your own doorbell so that you can actually get the food would be helpful. When the driver has to call to get you to open the damn door you should tip more.

  4. Realize it's not free - when you pick up the phone a order a pizza the pizza fairy doesn't come a bring you your food. A driver with a screw loose does. Don't wait till you open the door to fully realize, "hey I have to pay for this" and "where the hell is my money?"

  5. It is not the appropriate time to hand out religious material - yeah I know you're the new age Jehovah's witness. Getting people to actually come to your door and be a captive audience, but believe me pal the tip isn't worth what your handing out.

OH that's what it is

I always wondered what the name of the thingy was.

Now I know.
