Yah, I got nuthin....

ok so i'm now officially invite only for a while. had to get rid of my "stalker". ugh.


don't have much to report really. first of all, i totally suck as i skipped my Flashback Friday post this past week. SORRY GUYS - i'll make it up with a double this friday ;-)

weekend was good - my soccer team won first place in our division this sunday - so that was very exciting! go chubby burritos! (yes, that's our real name - you can laugh, cause we do)

the ladybug is terribly sick, so i took off work yesterday to stay home with her. she has a stomach bug and on top of that a cold as well. so she is miserable. and the bad news is that i'm over here feeling some symptoms coming on....zicam to the rescue - i hope it helps, but i'm not too optimistic, unless it was just a regular cold coming on. bugger.

so halloween is tomorrow and i couldn't be less excited. that sucks because usually halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. i'm just not at all into it this year. hopefully next year will be a different story. the only thing i actually have been doing is watching quite a few horror movies recently.

so there is the update on my boring life at the moment.

oh oh oh....i forgot. saturday was interesting. jos and i went to a "meet n' greet" for maroon 5. she won the tickets. it was a huge cluster fuck to say the least.....and dealing with those little teeny boppers - oh my gosh (i'm so scared that i know i will have my very own on my hands in a few years - joy). we got to check out the sound check and then meet the band briefly. we then decided to walk across the street and have a few drinks before the show at this hole in the wall bar, which we met our new favorite bartender. needless to say, we drank a few too many stella artois and didn't make it to the show. haha. ah well. it's not really my thing now-a-days anyway...i just went cuz jos asked me to and we ended up having our own little good time.

have a happy week all!

Can I Stay?

Ray LaMontagne - Can I Stay

Love & Happiness

I've just recently discovered this guy - Marc Broussard. Holy freakin moly does this guy groove. His voice is as soulful as Otis Redding. Not too bad for a white boy.


p.s....i jumped the gun on the invitation only thing and several people reprimanded me for that, so i am public again for another few hurry up if you want me to add you.

Tuesday, October 23, 2007


hey all....

due to the recent changes/events in my life, i've decided to be a little more private for a while. i don't know for how long, but it's just the mood i'm in for now. i've become closed off to certain people in my life as well and focused solely on my closest friends for their love and support. nothing personal, but i need to be selfish and focus on myself right now....i've spread myself too thin for so many years handling other people's problems and being overly kind-hearted, that i just don't have the strength to do so at the moment. not saying that part of me has completely gone away - it never will.....or that i won't return back to the way i was...but for now, this is what i need. please understand that.

with that said, i'm going to make my blog by invitation only for a while. i won't make it that way for about another week, so you will have time to email me with your email address so i can invite you to view it as opposed to the general public being able to see everything i write about.

email me at and i'll add you on the readers list.

lots of love to you all ~ namaste ~

Flashback Friday : Volume 7

don't have much time - i'm leaving work early today (WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!), but i had to stop by and post the flashback for today.

taking you back 14 years to 1993, arguably the greatest band on earth - U2. (let me preface that statement with alive and still together....)

i'm not a die-hard U2 fan, but i definitely own a few albums and still think they are freakin awesome.

zooropa was the album, although it did not get much recognition, it wasn't as mainstream as some of the others. my favorite U2 song of all time was on this album though. track #5 : Stay (Faraway, So Close!) (ps. there was also a collaboration on this album - "the wanderer" with U2 & Johnny Cash - great stuff)

i love my job

me: " we lend on 142 acres?"
VP of operations: laughs....
me: "that's what i thought. it's an estate of some dead guy - house built in 1925...looks haunted...check it out. take a look - in rural michigan and appraiser states 'property contains several older outbuildings in varying conditions' "
VP of operations: "yah...that's where they cut up people and their bodies are never found. um....NO"

Time for some soul cleansing

a soothing visual journey....

You've got to come original

i've noticed over the years that my music tastes have mellowed out. i think i finally found my niche in the jam bandish / folky type genre. i sway from it some, but if i was to say what was my absolute favorite type of music, that would be it.

in my "new wave" days, i would listen to harder music. i never got into metal or hard rock...but along the lines of ministry, skinny puppy, etc.

i can't handle that much like i said, i've mellowed.

but i do have those days (like this morning) that i wake up and i just want to crank the shit out of some kick ass music on my way to work and say fuck the rest of the world. (after i dropped the ladybug off for school of course - i'm not that torturous ;-) )

the band i usually throw in for those moments is 311. (or beastie boys depending on my mood)

today was my 311 morning and i now feel refreshed. apparently i needed that and felt some built up aggression over the past few days expell from my body in doing so.

so i have decided to spread some of my good fortune this morning and leave you with two 311 vids. enjoy :)

"come original"

and a little on the mellower side, but my absolute favorite tune by 311 : "amber"

Monday, October 15, 2007


soccer has been kicking my ass lately. i didn't know it was possible, but apparently i have become even MORE aggressive than i was before. which wasn't my intention as i have to remember that i don't have a teenage body anymore. i have quite a few marks of war from my soccer game this weekend, but here's the big one. this is what happens when someone slams down on your toe with their cleat....


Harry Potter's buying a house!

it truly is the little things in life.....

I don't wanna grow up...I'm a Toys R Us kid....

sweet mama, dandelion seeds, tagged me with this:

“5 things you want to be when you grow up. Big dreams that seem like folly, but in your heart of hearts are very real and dear to you. Things that maybe you have forgotten about in the ebb and flow and toil of the everyday, but that never really leave your soul. What you would do if anything at all was possible. Spend some time day dreaming…and then post them on your blog, passing the idea along to 5 others..because sometimes we need to pause and remember our dreams, hey? Maybe just saying it out loud will help you discover even little ways you can make them happen. You can write about that, too.”

  1. my dream in high school was to become a marine mammologist. i dreamt of working with sea life (mammals) out in the wild. something about them has always appealed to me...and still does. but alas, i did not have the patience to go to school for i took the easy road out.
  2. a small store owner in a beautiful, small, natural town...possibly somewhere in colorado or new mexico. i would sell things like eccentric gifts, incense, lotions, handmade soaps, handmade jewelry, etc. i think i would adore this.
  3. world traveler. in some sort of field where i had the chance to travel the world and interact with people of different nationalities and different cultures. and not from an outside perspective either....i want to be right in the middle with them.
  4. work for a non-profit organization ie...greenpeace or peta and experience the global issues surrounding these and be able to be directly involved in making a change.
  5. professional festival goer. i would LOVE to spend my days attending outdoor music festivals around the country or around the world for that matter.

i now tag:

If you love someone....set them free

i want to clarify to everyone that what is going on with me is not "bad"...just trying. i'm having to let go of someone that i love very much for a while for outside circumstances, but in the end, it will all work out. i know this. i trust this. it's just trying for now. it's a good time to write for myself, which i am doing and it's very theraputic. i used to keep a written journal, but i've figured out that over the years, handwriting things has become very hard on my hands. i'm so used to typing constantly and quickly that to handwrite for long periods of time makes me feel like i have arthritis.

technology blows sometimes, doesn't it?

so i'm actively looking for a p/t or seasonal job. i applied 3 places last night in hopes that atleast one of them calls me. i have to do something for a few months. i've also offered up a roommate situation with a close friend of mine, but we will see what happens with that. money is the devil. i've always said that and i will say it until the day i die.

i talked to a close friend of mine yesterday who offered me comfort and much hope, so i could actually breathe again....breathing has been a little difficult lately.

i have many ideas running around inside of me noggin. i have about $150 worth of painting supplies from the christmas before last that are sitting in a closet in my house untouched. do i want to take them out and start experimenting? i want to take some yoga classes also again...but when can i fit them in? (not to mention they cost money)...i want to learn beading (which i intend to do with ms. dandelion seed very soon)....i haven't been practicing guitar like i should be....want to get back into that. gah.

it's overwhelming all of the projects and all the "want to do"s.

one at a at a time.

Flashback Friday : Volume 6

today we're going back to 1987 with Crowded House - "Something So Strong"

The Feast of The Weatherman

weekend was good...not long enough, but when is it ever? got to spend some quality time with Horizon, which was MUCH needed.

i went and saw "The Feast of Love" with my mom and my sis on saturday. what a spectacular film...beautifully written story and powerful message. the only thing i thought this movie could have done without was the sex scenes. now don't get me wrong, i am no prude and enjoy sex scenes as much as the next guy (girl)....but this was not the movie for that. i think it took away from the plot and just didn't belong. but overall, i was quite impressed with this one. (still not COMPLETELY sure how the title ties into the film...)

afterwards, we got back to my folks house and watched "The Weatherman". i would call myself a fan of nick cage, but i'm a HUGE fan of michael caine. i'm still a little unsure of how i felt about this movie. i laughed my ass off (at inopportune times i'm sure) and felt depressed, then on the other hand, questioning "wtf is going on here?" it was definitely interesting. i must say. not sure if i liked it or not, but i enjoyed watching it that's for sure. i tried to find a clip on youtube where he's describing how he started getting hit by random food in the beginning he thought it was an accident, then as it kept happening he realized it wasn't an accident and somehow had themes of fast food items. i almost peed my pants laughing so hard at this part in the movie.

that's all i got. it's a new month and things have slowed down just a tad for the moment, so maybe i'll be able to catch up on reading some blogs and posting a little more.
