Hey, y'all. I'm here.
not even a good holiday movie, i feel like such a egged nogg.
I'm ready to start my drinking and it's only 5 here, but what the hell? tomorrow I begin my vacation.
did receive some great films today... i wanted to thank that special someone... i am going to wait 28 eight more days...thank you, thank you!jeremy
early morning tron seeing, family event... whoo-hoo!
Yahoo! I'm glad you got them. What a fun evening!
You will definitely get your zombie on tonight.
so are you interested in tron?or before your time?
Not before my time, dear, I graduated class of 80. Was supposed to be class of 81 but mom had me pushed up in school cause I was too smart for my own good. Then, I ended up graduating early in 79 technically. I'm old, in other words. i missed out on Tron. I also missed Rocky Horror Picture Show but I tend to be anti-trends and so i am proud to say I never saw things that were too trendy, but Tron I might actually enjoy at this point because it'll remind me of my old Intellivision unit and the older tech.
i was a young teen starting high school, and was that kid who played with legos and action figures... not dolls. into the whole star wars, star trek thing. i never grew out of it i don't think. i started throwing away old magazines from the late 70's early 80's today... asking myself why i kept them... for so long. so tron was in my nerdy self...
Hi there! :)
@izombie;That is exactly the kind of boys I was interested in. I still love when I get a chance to talk at SciFi conventions. I am a nerd freak. I love that nerds aren't just tech, but it's their active imaginations that are so exciting. I always thought it would be fun to have a boyfriend who wanted to role play.Soraya;Yahoo! You're with us!
Heh, My plans got pushed back until later tonight so, I'm here ^.^ How are things?
Soraya;Going great. Totally completely and absolutely exhausting, but great. I'm determined to have all the loose ends of the divorce shit and name change stuff done by the end of the year and enjoy the new year with my maiden name and all the ties completely severed. Still dancing?
Oh yay, Congrats :) Hopefully you will have your wish :) Yeppers, I'd be dancing more than I am now if I didn't completely kill myself at a show the other night. Lol I've been SOO stiff. But it was soooo worth it!! Hah! I'm excited for my next show :)
oh, the stories i can tell you... from sci-fi and horror conventions to dressing up as zombie john travolta... 20 some years ago... while i got chocked by the man who played michael myers in 4 and 5... same story, same day.i should write the book i wanted to write called "things when i was 10 and then some...i insulted adam west during an interview...
Soraya;I would love to see video of you dancing. I do hip hop dancing every day. It's hilarious. I think I'm awesome but I need to lose another 20 pounds before I feel hot doing it. I just adore it. I'm such a geek.izombie;From what I've heard of Adam West, it's not too hard to insult him. He seems to be insulted by everything including them not asking him to do the newer Batman movies. I loved taking classes at the conventions because they had things like "having sex with aliens" about what that might be like and a contest for the best man in tights (no stuffing allowed). I think so far as SciFi goes, I'm a complete and absolute freak for 50s SciFi B&W movies.
Haha! I only have old videos up online. And watching them they're terrible... I'm so stiff!! lol I guess it's a good thing that I can go back and look at the videos and see how different it is. :-pI'm trying to find a song to dance to to tide me over until I can try to figure Tribal Belly Dance out. It's a bit different than what I'm trained in (Egyptian Cabaret) but I have a song for it and Squee! I'm excited to learn it. :-p
yes, the classics... abbott and costello meet the monsters.i called him old, and he was not to happy... then i started calling him out... we got to punching... he knocked me out with bat shark repellent...
Soraya;The right music makes such a difference. Do a new video. If I get brave enough, I'll do one some time on the blog, but maybe not until springtime. I want to be sure I'm in my goal. I don't want to make a total fool of myself.
izombie;I love ones like "Them!" and "It Came From Outer Space," and all those. My favorite thing on a cold or rainy Sunday is to just play them back to back and all that woo-woo background music and "technology." They're just so fun.
Haha aww you won't make a fool of yourself. I'm trying to figure out when I can make the video that I want to put up. I have a decent drum solo, but I don't have it recorded anywhere. (Or rather... on my computer... There are videos, just not in my possession.)There's just not enough room in my house to do it :-p
yes those too... i think i like i was teenage wolfman with michael landon to start...
It's funny you're talking about the dancing because i just put on the tV and they're showing 'Honey" which is a hip hop dance movie and I'm feeling like dancing now.
izombieOh yes! "The Blob" and all the others of that era. Man, I just love that. I admit I love Star Trek, but I'm actually more into the Next Generation version.
Hi Guys! I haven't tuned in a while! I wanted to say hello!!
Hey Natasha;How are the holidays going so far?
Yay for dancing!!! It's good workout, I <3 dancing. Lol I'm dying to get into the Tribal Stuff though. I have such an awesome song for it, and I love the costumes for Tribal. :-p
crap, i am not dancing...i am out of here...seriously i am on my way to eat some dinner, feed the kitties and watch some gore...:)you guys have a nice night!be safe! santa is watching!all creepy like...jeremy
Soraya;Yahoo! I love tribal. That would be so wicked!izombie;Have a good one!
Did you see the one post on my blog? I posted the song I'm going to work up a routine to. I <3 it so very much!!
Soraya;I'm going to go check it out.
It should be the second most recent post. It has tribal dancers as a picture :-p
one last thing, i am more the next generation too... picard had more class, kirk had the bad boy big balls... i think i cried when next gen ended... men can cry to... okay then, i will hang up and wait for my answer...good night!:)jeremy [iZombie]Tarantula!The Creature from the Black LagoonDementiaInvasion of the Body SnatchersThe Screaming SkullHouse on Haunted HillandThe Thing from Another World
Jeremy;You're a hoot!Soraya;That song was EXACTLY what I'm looking for. Jeez, I could make such a routine to that song! There was some music like that on the soundtrack of "Stealing Beauty" and I loved it so much to dance to. I'm going to play that song and try dancing to it later.
Haha! I love the song soooo much! It's so... sexy sounding, and just so perfect for Tribal and I'm so excited to do it!!!! I need to invest in Rachel Brice DVD's... ASAP. haha! I can't teach myself tribal off of a youtube video of Rachel Brice.. It doesn't work that way.And I don't have the 250 bucks to go take her workshops this weekend. :(
Hi Autumnforest!Good good, working, shopping and the likes!I just got my new D80 Nikon camera today, so that was pretty exciting! lol I've been flashing my kitty to death... with love! lolhow about yourself??
That's rough. I know what you mean. I've been wanting to learn remote viewing from an expert and there's one in early January only an hour away from here, but it's an entire weekend event and my work is a fucking sweatshop, so it took me months to take 2 days off for my vacation and I had to swap other days to make up for the other days I wanted to take off. I hate it. I would so love to take the class. I just remind myself I'm working towards something better and in the end I can take all the training classes I want if I stay on my schedule I have planned to get to that space and freedom. So, what's up in the romance world?
Hey Natasha;A shutter bug, huh? I just got a new digital camera so I'm on vacation I plan to get some cool pics of San Diego and use the flipcam to take funny vids. I love to make goofy videos. New gadgets are so cool. I wish I had time to sit down and learn my camera, but I still haven't learned how to use the DVD player I got a few months ago. Yeah, life is hectic. It's going great though. I'm really chugging along on the books I'm writing and I'm so excited about them.
Aww, Well, plenty of workshops later. :) And Absolutely nothing. I hate Florida so much. There's no guy who's interested around here. None. Nada. Zero. Zip!!!! I don't get it. Lol I don't even get approached. It's really kind of sucking now, because I'm going on a year and 3 months of being single. It kinda sucks.
Soraya;Wow! I have to admit, I'm 5 months into being without a man in my bed and I am going out of my mind. I know what you mean, though. I hadn't tried to get a guy since I was 16. I realized that guys think of me as a buddy with a bawdy sense of humor and they laugh and love to talk to me, but I have absolutely no clue if a man thinks of me THAT way or not. I just don't know. A guy friend of mine said "you're a girl in a woman's body and don't know you're grown up." It's true. I was with a man for 31 years who looked at me like a piece of furniture. All I want is just once in my life to have a man's face light up at the sight of me and think I'm awesome. I have never ever had anything close. My friends who are in goo-goo love make me sick. I think "how do they get a guy who just can't live a few minutes without them?" I know that part of a relationship doesn't last and I expect that, but I just want to know those few months of bliss once in my lifetime.
Yeah I hear you 100%. I haven't had it. And it doesn't help when my books have it all in it... I also don't want a guy who just sees me as a sex object... I want a guy who sees me as his equal, and is proud to have me there.I have so many guys who try to put me down and such. It's so irritating! They try to make me out to be stupid... When I'm not. I'm not even close.I made 100's on my Anatomy and Physiology Tests.. Got out of that class with an A. I'm in Phi Theta Kappa which is the International Honors Society of 2 year Colleges. I don't lack Common sense... Which is an odd pairing for someone who's intelligent most of the time. I Can talk about cars easily, Computers, All sorts of things, and KNOW what I'm talking about. Music, especially! So It's really irritating when I have a few people who sit there and try to make me out to be a brainless bimbo (I guess It's because I have modeling stuff? Is that an assumption? Models are stupid?) So I want a guy who can appreciate all of ^^^^^^^^^ that! Appreciate the fact that I'm a belly dancer but doesn't expect a "Private Show". Appreciate the fact that I'm going into Nursing. And someone who has goals... I'm asking for too much. It's a shame. Lol!!Sorry for the novel.
Autumn, you use to have video of you belly dancing.
I type over 100 wpm, so I write novels too, sweetie. I get you. I was a tomboy and then a model/pageant girl and then a highly responsible intelligent multitasker. I get men in every way. Hell, I adore them. They talk about the things I want to talk about, aren't scared of being smart or having depth and they say it like it is, no back stabbing--they stab you straight on if they want to. haha. I think the problem with both of us are we're smart nerds and yet we're also cute, so we're kind of expected to be perky. I am perky, goofy, ridiculous, but I compare myself more to Julia Roberts. I'm toothy and long-legged and awkward, laugh at the wrong time, but underneath seriously smart and loving. I learned in my marriage, it really always comes down to looks. No matter how unbelievable a mate I was with gourmet meals, back rubs, counseling, sex any time anywhere, it still came down to looks. That's the thing about men I most dislike and where they become like caddy women. Okay, off my soap box. I love that us women can love a very unattractive man or an unsuccessful man or whatever and we think they're the most hot guy in the world if they've got that personality/traits we want. I know for me, the next guy--must be easygoing and have a sense of humor, love sex and horror movies. In other words, everything my ex wasn't.
Echo;Well, kind of. It's me in a belly dancing scarf doing hip hop moves. I cheated.
Haha! I just can't even find a guy who appreciates my looks. Which is weird, because I have friends who show me to their guy friends up north, and they're like "Oh WOW! She's SINGLE?! How?!!??!!" So it's like.. Umm... Florida? Wtf? Lol I think It might be because I'm a confident woman as well... When I walk, I walk with confidence, My head held high and everything... And I think that might deter some people. So many people tell me I might just intimidate guys. But I can't imagine every guy in Florida being shy and unwilling to walk up to an attractive female? And I am perky. I'm a goof. I'm fun to be around. But I can have a conversation about mostly everything. I can have deep conversations. I don't know. So much trouble here. Lol I want out of this place.
Soraya;You've mentioned that before. I would hate to live in FL, myself. I don't think I could take the nonstop bikini crowd. I did that in Redondo Beach. Enough! I could see myself somewhere along the Shenandoah in VA with a group of artists and eco-weenies. I always wanted to be part of an artist commune. The movie Stealing Beauty always inspires that part of me. I put it on now and then just to imagine what it'd be like to live in a community of artists who have deep conversations, get into gardening, contemplate paganism. How fun! I do not fit in conservative AZ in the least. I'm truly an autumnforest.
Hey Echo;What's up? Doing anything cool for the holidays?
Ahh I wouldn't mind being there... It's pretty. Although I can't take southern accents... And I know a few people from that area that have them. >.< I'm a bit on the torn side... I can see myself as a big city girl... With coffee shops and all sorts of things.. But I'm also a nature girl.... I'm thinking I belong in Europe somewhere. I've been misplaced. Lol I would LOVE me a Russian. I love their accents. Heh!! Well.. Anything European would be good. :-p
Soraya;I can absolutely guarantee you that you would find Portland Oregon that perfect mix; city, coffee shops, art crowd, yet green, lush and everything is centered around nature. More bike riders than any other city. Lots of hipsters, but it's a blast. God, I love that place!
I've been told that the Northwest is a good place to be. I heard Seattle was good too... I'm wondering if when I get my Nursing degree if I can get a travel contract over there. hmm... There's intellectual people there... right? Lol I had someone tell me that I need to go for someone I'm not attracted to at all, that I can't keep up with an attractive guy. My friends. Sometimes I wonder. I think it's just Florida.
Soraya;Yes, Seattle is more expensive and a different feel, I think. Portland is artsy and coffee house, but downtown there's also a lot of meth and homeless youths. It's a mecca for the artistic types. There are more than enough groups for anything arts/dance there. It's reasonably priced to live in--better than FL. I'm sure they have incentive for nurses. Most places have great packages trying to get more help in the health care industry. You should look at Portland on YouTube and also some webcams of it. I felt so at home there. One thing I couldn't get over was the women don't wear makeup and no one dresses up, so I felt really out of place. I don't necessarily dress up, but I like to look good and I wear makeup always. So far as men, I say find someone who has something that intrigues you. I vowed to myself I wouldn't just meet a guy at a bar and date him because I know why he asked me out, the superficial. I'd rather know a guy online and then meet him eventually once I know we have a chemistry and are compatible so he's not a total stranger, otherwise I would have had a friend match me up with someone they knew so they had a reference. I do not want anything to do with local men because I plan to leave this horrid place and it would be impossible if I were attached to someone who worked here and wanted to stay. So, I'm in a wonderful limbo. I know why I picked my ex. It was breeding purposes only. He was stable, reliable, secure and had no mood swings. He also was robotic, OCD, controlling and petty, and hated any intimacy at all--icky stuff! So, for that purpose of having a kid and raising him, it was good for the kid. Miserable for me. This time, I want a man who is spontaneous and goofy and fun and sexy no matter how he looks. It has nothing to do with looks in the least, but with how he makes me feel. If he can make me feel awesomely amazing, then he's the hottest man in the world.
Portland sounds fun. But yeah, I'm the same way. I love make up, And I always dress to impress. I like looking my best. My friend laughs... She drew a comic... Every time we go out... I'm usually in heels or boots, A nice top, a decent pair of jeans, My make up is done and my hair is done, I always walk tall and proud and what not. And then she just doesn't give a shit about what she looks like. She'll wear PJ pants, the ughs she has, a t-shirt or a spaghetti strap shirt, doesn't care what her hair looks like, and doesn't wear make up. And she doesn't quite care about her posture. So the picture she drew was me walking with good posture and a nice outfit on and everything and having this cocked eyebrow look on my face as I look over to her.. and she's like.. Leaning over with PJ pants on and everything with a very disgruntled look on her face. LolIt made me laugh when she drew it. Her comics of us amuse me. But yeah... My ideal guy would be a replica of Dimitri from the Vampire Academy book series. (obviously he doesn't have to be a half body guard, pure badass...but everything else... The personality, The adoration... Yeah. I want that.) I'm not so sure I will find it though. Lol But I found my tool for when I go to concerts.I wore my Opeth hoodie to a concert a few days ago, and dear god I never got so much attention from guys... Even the lead of the one band was like :) haha
Soraya;You're hilarious! Yeah, I get you about looking nice. It's very casual where I live so if you wear heels people look at you like you're insane. I'm 5'8" too so I can intimidate in heels. I'm a southern gal and soooo good at flirting, but my problem is that guys could take the bait and play along, but they never show any sign they want anything serious, just want to goof off with me. I will never figure it out. One of my friends told me once I have the ice princess thing. I was like "me, really? I'm so warm and sweet." She said, "watch yourself when you walk into a crowd where there's men. You look straight ahead, walk like a model with long strides and make no eye contact." I realized i do that because being married so long you try not to engage men and if you look too long, they take it as an invitation, so I learned to not make eye contact and act if no one is there. I have to learn to quit doing that. It works great when I'm in a relationship though. hee hee
Oooo.. I think you just nailed one of my issues. I do the SAME thing... When I walk into a room... I make very little eye contact... And I take the long strides and yeah. I wonder if that's one of my issues. I've wondered that, if I come off as cold or what not. Which is why it's weird to me because... Like you said about yourself, Same goes for me... I'm sweet and warm, and I crack jokes a bunch. So the lack of attention is like O_o whaa...? But like... Even when I strike up conversation... Like you said.. Guys show NO sign. At the concert, I was talking to one guy who spoke polish (:-D!!!)... He talked to me at least, but no sign of interest. But what weirded me out was after the second or third band went on... He found me in the crowd and was like "Hey Sarah! How're your ears doing?!" with a smile on his face. It was like ... Ok Mr. I'm going to not show any sign of interest in you and then somehow find you in a crowd of people and remember your name. Lol! I think one guy was interested... He came up to me after the show and (Again, my Opeth hoodie... So much attention) was like "I just had to come tell you how much I love your hoodie. They're one of my favorite bands. I have their logo on my back" ... And I got him to take his shirt off, in 30 degree weather, to show me his tattoo, And I talked to him a bit more.. But... Nothing came out of that either. It's so.. weird. Guys are strange creatures.
Speaking of old movies... I'm watching "Kraa! the Sea Monster" tonight, a Full Moon picture that's reportedly in the vein of the giant monster movies and cheesy space flicks of the 1950s and 1960s. It's also Alison Lohman's first film role. So far, the cheese factor is high... and one of the most unintentionally inappropriate scenes I've come across in a long while; Lohman's character comes aboard the space station, and her commander is looking her up and down in what seems to be a leering way; and her character looks all of 14 or so. :) [From the context, I THINK he's supposed to be evaluating her uniform and such, but that's not what it looks like at all.)And I saw iZombie mention 'Creature from the Black Lagoon.'Can't stand that one, because of those idiots the film tries to pass off as scientists and researchers. That earned it a spot in my book.
Hell, sweetie, I know how pretty you are and I think all you'd have to do is show interest and they'd be all over it. I mean, when it comes down to it, guys are just waiting for the okay sign. The eye contact is huge. I tried it one time after my friend mentioned that. I started looking at men and holding their gaze for a moment and the reaction was shocking. They really take it as a signal. If you look a second time, they are totally hyped up. I think if I were out there trying to pick up a guy, it'd be hard to approach a guy without an "invitation," so I think it's really that they're waiting for the signs. I usually crack a joke in a group and the men relax and realize they can talk to me, but then I become a counselor for them and they talk about their ex's and such. I think I'll always be a buddy for guys because I'm so easy to talk to. I suppose I could play up the boobs, butt, legs and hair. They seem to be the big draw attractions, but then I know exactly why a guy is approaching. Not that I don't adore sex, but I think once you're pegged as a girl he'd like to do, you're screwed as a girl he'd like to keep on doing.
Steve, buddy, yahoo! Now I want to see it! Damn! I need to expand my 50s SciFi library. I have two addictions. I either want an entire day of those or an entire day of Bigfoot documentaries. They are my biggest obsessions for marathons. Sounds like you're having a nice evening. So, relaxing for the holidays or working hard? p.s. I love the creature from the black lagoon, but I actually had a crush on him as a kid. I'm such a freak.
Oh definitely. That's one of the issues that I have with meeting guys. I'd like to not just be a sex object. I'm not the type of girl you fool around with and part ways... I have more potential than that. My only thoughts are that this area can't be a complete dud. But I did have to go 2 hours east to get attention from guys. That's... Kinda sad. >.> It might just be this area, and not just Florida in general. Who knows. I try to give guys signs... Maybe they're the wrong ones. I think I need a book of guy signs. Or the male code handbook. Hmph.
I think the signs are subtle, but there's definite ways to flirt. I do know that men react well to having your undivided attention, but now and then it's good to just look away as if distracted by something else in the room. It's the challenge, you know. They have to up their game and realize you might get away and that makes you seem like a prize. You know, I grew up hanging with the boys all the time and competing with them and outdoing them in sports and spitting contests and swear they are still very much the same in adult clothes. They still like bright shining distracting objects and to feel they just earned something and went to the next level.
Steve;I'd draw you into this conversation if you're brave enough to tell us gals how we can know if a guy is into us.
See, I try that. I tried that with the greek guy I met. He just.. disappeared off the face of the earth. We had plans to hang out and he just... stopped talking to me after we set a date. Lol I would love to have a guys perspective on that one.
How do you know if a guy is into you? You'll know. If you don't hes not worth it.
Here's a funny one. I actually went to a single's group here locally to meet women in my neighborhood. Since I work from home, I wanted to find more local friends cause mine are all over town. So, I think this is a good place to meet other divorced women here in my area. Well, I go to the restaurant for the mixer. Everyone is older. I set at the table and start talking to some women but they get up and flit away when men enter. The men come to my table. Soon, my table is all men. The women are looking at me like they hate me. One of the men wasn't even subtle in what he wanted to do. My skin was crawling. Definitely not a singles mixer type of gal. It was just like high school. The boys were bugging me and the gals hated me. The thing was, the boys never actually asked me on dates. I'm many decades past high school but the last time a guy asked me out I was 16. I kid you not. I can't imagine how great it would be to be asked out. With my ex, I asked him out. He was not into girls yet even though he was turning 18. Should have been a sign, hmm?
Hi everyone..... in the middle of watching GA.
Major.Mack;Jeez, but they can smile and laugh and talk and look you in the eyes, but how do you know they want you or they're just being nice?
Sis;So, what do you think of it? I saw it ahead of time, I must admit and it was classic and kind of creepy, I thought.
Autumn, I am NOT brave enough. :)Plus, it's been a long, LONG time since I've been in anything that could be described as a relationship, and the last couple I was in were such disastrous failures that I'm the last one to be part of this conversation. :)And, sadly, I'm going to be working up to about the 22nd.BTW, I'm not sure I'd recommend "Kraa!" unless you are really into bad movies. :)
I haven't ever been asked out. I'm always the one who makes the moves. I asked my ex out, I made the first approach to the greek guy. My other... ex-like person, I made the first move there. I don't know what's up with that. Lol! I'm thinking It'd be nice for a guy to make the first move. And that's the thing. Finding a guy who's interested. >.>
Well it takes some investigative work. I find when its the other way around (Men curious about women) its the same thing. You need to ask questions and talk to learn if he/she is a phony and has a personality that allows them to lie,cheat and hustle your panties off. Don't get me wrong. I would do all of the above for you Autumn, but I'm not your average man ;)
So far so good. I am heading over to my kitchen to make a drink.
Steve;You crack me up. Yeah, well don't give up. You are way too interesting, talented and smart and I suspect a really big-hearted guy. So, you might need to look for something a bit different than the usual suspects. You might start with someone you have something in common with. I find ultimately when all is said and done, someone who at least appreciates what you do is helpful but it's even cooler if they actually enjoy it too. And, as for movies, I LOVE BAD MOVIES. My favorite hobby is MST 3000'ing movies.Soraya;It shouldn't be that much effort for someone who looks like you, is as fun and interesting as you and as beautiful. I told a friend once who became single (back when I was married and thought i was so smart) that she needed to think of the guy she wanted and ask "where would he be Saturday evening or Sunday morning?" I think my guy would be on the blog on his weekends. Haha. Maybe a bookstore or a Starbucks plugged in online at the coffee bar.
That's why I'm not understanding why it IS so difficult. Lol It's crazy. The issue with guys being at starbucks around here, is that's where they go after they get drunk. I see it so many times. This area is weird. haha! I think I'm going to start taking a book to starbucks and people watching, make eye contact with guys and see what happens. My friend suggested that. She told me not to get all dolled up... just go as that coffee shop girl. That's weird for me though. Lmfao!
Major.Mack;Great answer. I did learn about the ones that flirt and make you feel like the only woman in the world just to get something and run. It's heartbreaking for women because we all just ache for someone to adore us and act as if we're the only woman on earth but for some men that only lasts 24 hours, well maybe 12 if they want you out of the bed before they get up. Haha. If I wanted just sex, and it's an important part of me, I could go get it, but that's a whole different thing. Jilling off is more satisfying than a one-night stand. I wouldn't have any problem having a relationship for sex if that were on the table up front, but none of this "I'm totally into you, I'm wild about you" but then only plan to play it out until he's satisfied. At this point, I really just want someone who enhances my experience in life. Someone who enjoys curling up with horror movies, loves sex, wandering abandoned buildings, joking around, and can do his own thing while I do my writing so we can be together, but doing separate things and not feel all weirded out by having breathing space. Jeez, I sound like a dude when I describe what I want. Haha
Julie;What's the drink? Kahlua? I just had a shot of tequila. I am not a liquor person, a beer lover actually, but it's the first night of my first vacation in over 2 years.
I just wanted to drop in for a second and say hi. Have a great time on your trip Sis and take lots of pictures and video.Bye...Julie
Soraya;Haha. Ugly-up, then, and stare down the men at Starbucks. I want to hear the results, sweets. I was there when my cable was down just sucking off the free WiFI tit of Starbucks and I found I couldn't get anything done because the men wanted to talk around me. It made me laugh. One time, I had trouble logging on and I asked a guy how to do it and then when I sat back down, the man next to me started offering all kinds of computer advice and asked me if I was a virgin. I nearly snorted my chai tea at that one. He meant at using WiFI.
You bet its Kahlua and it is yummy!
You see autumn, your answer makes you even more attractive then your picture ;)
LMFAO!!! Oh god, I definitely would have spewed my drink all over if someone asked me that without being clear about it. Haha!! I just have to get the guts to go out. I just wish I knew where the guy I'm supposed to end up with is right now. >.>
You folks sure been busy.
Major.Mack;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSc01laizfQThat's probably explains me the best. I'm a total dork. Soraya;Yeah, being asked if I'm a virgin at my age did make me choke. I had to unplug and leave the bar. The problem is, I was attracting not the ones I wanted. There were hipsters (not) and then there were serious older male writers (scowling at their screens with their glasses on the end of their noses), the college boys and then a few total Intel geeks (I live near a huge Intel place and most men work there). I like nerds, but not necessarily the usual culprits. That's why it's fun in the blog world because I meet tons of nerds but they're horror lovers too. Do you want an international kind of guy? Do you want the guys who shop weekends at the outdoor farmer's market? How about a particular profession? Where do they eat nearby their work? That's a sneaky one, but when I worked in the hospital, a lot of women regularly went to the restaurant the docs liked to hang out at. Here, women stalk the men at Intel. Now, when you're working in a hospital, you will have unlimited yummy men. When I worked in the ER, there were paramedics, cops (my weakness), techs, male nurses, docs...
Pangs;We're a chatterbox tonight. Whazzup? Any good BF documentaries lately. Hey, did you see that funny one that sort of makes fun of two redneck BF hunters? I can't remember the name of it, but damn it was really good. It was more of a character study of these two sad saps, but it was really well done.
Triple post is funny, even if you didn't mean it. Chatterbox, indeed.I haven't seen a damn thing, been buried in bidnessing.
I have no idea what the fuck is wrong with blogger tonight, but a bunch of times when I post, it repeats it like 5 times and I keep erasing them. It's in a loop. It hates me. The bastards! Hee hee So, too busy to have fun? What's the drink tonight Pangs and are you watching Ghost Adventures?
Lets see...Yes, I want an international kind of guy. He doesn't have to shop at the Farmers Market, lol but That'd be cool if he did :-pProfession... Lets see. I'd be ok with anything that requires him to have a drive to do it. Engineering, IT, Medical. I don't want someone who's just like "I want this degree because it's easy to get" ... That doesn't fly with me. And as long as it's not terrible fast food, I'm good. I don't like guys who decide to stuff their face with McDonalds or Burgerking. I'm ok with it once in a while, because it's easy to get if you haven't eaten a bunch all day and it's 1:00 and you're out with friends and you're starving. Lol But yeah. I TRIED to get into the hospital, to have my foot in the door for when I get into the Nursing Program. But the job that I tried to get was taken down and they put it up for Full time and I can't do that. >.<
I am watching and drinking....water :)I missed the beginning, so I'm not paying attention. I'll catch the late rerun in a bit.
Soraya;You might want to figure out what these guys do on their time off. I tried www.meetup.com and I've actualy tried out several meetup groups. You can find ones for your interest or the interest of the type of man you want to find would join.Pangs;I like when you get buzzed. Yes, do rewatch it. The pre-story was cool. It's not on here for an hour and a half.
I have issues with online dating things. Every one of them that I've tried, the guys are all just looking for sex. And that's all. I want something more. And I haven't the feintest idea where the international guys go. Lol! Not to this area apparently. I wanna try going down to the Russian Restaurant. See if I can find a Russian down there :-p
Soraya;If I were in a foreign country living, I might want to go to an American restaurant to feel at home, so not a bad idea. My guy would not be at a sports bar. Don't like sports addicts, but I might find him at a brewery. I did the online thing for one day. In 3 hours, I had 30 men all over me. I was icked out when I put in my profile that I wanted an affectionate guy but said I want a guy for an online relationship first because I wanted to get to know the guy first. This guy wrote me and said "you say you want an affectionate guy but if you don't meet him, how's he supposed to show he's affectionate." Got a chilling premonition from that douche bag. I yanked my profile off right away. One man kept emailing me the first hour trying to get me to meet him in a bar and I kept declining and he tried a new technique "that's good that you're cautious. The men on here have tricks. I could help you to know the tricks. We could discuss it over drinks." Argh!
I had one guy who wasn't looking for anything, met up with me as a joke. That ticked me off. One guy realized I wasn't the type of girl that you just have sex with... and felt REALLY bad for possibly leading me on, he cut off communication. I can't tell if it was a "You're just not attractive enough for me to want to have sex with" or if he was actually genuine. But he tried playing me at first... Trying to rope me in to be interested and stuff. All of my dating profiles are gone. I just.. Don't want to deal with it anymore. They're all creeps!Another guy seemed pretty cool... Professional Golfer from Belgium... He seemed interested... Didn't come off creepy, seemed very decent. Then all of a sudden he started saying piggish stuff... It was a huge wtf thing... It was like a completely different person. So.. strange.
Soraya;Yes, they can change personalities. Women do the same, though. They act as if they're not basketcases emotionally and then they get comfortable with a guy and they loose all PMS-ee-nish and psycho thought patterns and possessiveness. I can see why men see women as pretty packages that once opened could be a jack-in-the-box. I'd be gun-shy too. I'm embarrassed for women that go psycho on dudes. It gives the rational women a bad rap. I've seen men turn quite different once you get to know them. It's like they think they have to be all suave when you first meet and it's like talking to a salesman, very ingenuine. I'll tell you the sad thing for us women who have been with a man a long time. My gal pals and I would lament constantly that we understood why women got boy toys. The middle-aged men after being a relationship never kiss or say sweet things anymore. They become very apathetic. Not smart. These friends all told me how they made out with men in cars at bars and kissed for hours and I actually didn't feel astonished they were cheating on their stupid husbands, but I actually felt jealous. My longest kiss was just over one minute.
That's the sad thing, there are too many flakey people out there. It's really a shame. I really have an issue judging character too. I'm always told it's because I'm a pisces. Lol I do get feelings about some people though... Like.. bad feelings, Bad vibes. I guess that's a good thing. Lol The thing that gets me is how ... inexperienced I feel because of how inexperienced my ex was. I've never had good sex...Which is why I laugh when I tell people I have been single and untouched for a year and 3 months now, they're like "HOW ARE YOU SURVIVING??!?!?!" I suppose that's my answer. I actually had a close encounter with my ex...I was playing WoW and he was on for some reason... ran right into me. Luckily didn't say anything. Lol
Soraya;Yeah. My ex, I was the only girl he'd ever been with so I had to teach him everything. The weird thing is that I'm such a sexual being and I'm so uninhibited that sex was always great for me because I was having it. That sounds funny, but I get so into it and I have fun simply being a siren and letting go and trying things. Unfortunately, he hated intimacy a lot--really uncomfortable with it, so I never got to live to my potential. I definitely will need to be with a guy who has no issues with exchanging saliva and other things...You haven't had a chance to be the siren. Seriously, I watched this 1980s mini series called Harem, I think. It was a godawful mini series, but the premise was cool. This woman to become one of the harem had to learn all about sexuality and sensuality and they had her playing with her body and tasting things and just opening up her senses, like you do with your dancing. My hip hop dancing is like that too, it gives you a confidence in your body, but you also need to know what makes it excited so you can train the man to take you there. I have had plenty of time lately to learn even more about what turns me on and apparently I can seduce myself pretty damn easily. Har har
I definitely have a sexual side. Lol Things with my ex were weird though... I don't think my body was attracted to him... My body didn't yearn for him... If that makes sense. Lol I honestly don't know why he lasted 3 1/2 years... It really was a blessing in disguise that he broke things off. I may not have realized it at the time but... Wow. Lol I wouldn't mind exploring and such, but I can't find a guy to explore with. :-p Hmm. that'd help some ^.^ I need to take a trip to Europe or something. haha!!
That's hilarious. I always said I wanted to go to Italy before I'm too old get my ass pinched. You know what's weird about all this? If a guy really came on and made it clear he wanted you, you'd know he's a player. The guys worth anything aren't going to approach you like a salesman on a car lot. So, finding the more quiet ones, hmm? Honestly, I was with a friend at a singles thing and I was watching how the women picked out their male targets and I looked around thinking "what would I do if I were looking?" (I was married at the time). I found the group with the loud handsome guy that everyone has not notice. Then, I look at his group. There's the two guys backing him up by laughing at whatever he says--sheep. Don't like men who are sheep. I like men who are lone predators. So, I look and there's a guy in the group who is quiet, not enamored of the leader, but I see the leader talking to him and trying to get his approval and the man's sort of dark and quiet and not at all affected by the leader trying to buddy up with him. I realize "this is the real leader of the group, above all the bullshit and doing his own thing and doesn't give a shit what anyone thinks of him." That's the guy I would have wanted.
Did you try Match.com? They may match you with guy you like. For Holidays I have friends from LA, we stay home watching movies and drinking.
That's the guy I would have wanted as well... Lol I don't like the In Your Face I'M POPULAR!!! guys. They annoy me. I like social people who aren't afraid to talk to people, but I don't like it when they act like they NEED people to approve of them. The Dark and Mysterious guys.. I like them. But I don't want them to be so mysterious that they're frustrating because you can't read a damn thing they do. So it's hard to say. This would involve finding a guy who catches my eye to begin with.My ideal guy that I would LOVEEEE to have would look like "Andrei Andrei" - He's a Romanian model... And just... omg gorgeous. But there was also the singer from Scar Symmetry... and he was gorgeous too... Similar looks. Shoulder Length brown hair, dark eyes. Tall. Fit. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4d/Scar_Symmetry_in_Avesta_april_2010_01-Lars_Palmqvist.jpghe's a pretty guy. Lol
Echo;I'm such an odd bird, I don't think that match.com could possibly match me up with the right man. Sounds like you are enjoying yourself. I'm ready to cut loose this weekend. Finally! I usually work weekends.Soraya;We're funny. We complain about scaring men away and it appears tonight we scared the men away. Haha. My type??? Hmm.... It depends. I found Phil Collins sexy. I don't make a lot of sense. My dream man if I went by looks was Adrian Paul from the Highlander show, but in general I think all men look amazingly sexy with a day or two of growth on their face--no mustaches and beards, but a little unshaven is fucking dangerous looking. Love it! I'm tall, so generally tall boys get my attention. I like to feel dimunitive with someone. haha. I like the contrast of dark hair and light eyes, but then I've also found Kevin Bacon attractive and Rutger Hauer, so you never know where I'm going with it. It's never been about the looks anyways. When a guy has the right combo, I think he's totally hot and no one can convince me otherwise. Love guys in black tees and jeans. It's a hangup from long ago. They just always spoke to me as naughty and strong. At the same time, I also thought the Professors' white oxford and khaki pants were sexy too. I like odd features. I like all types. I am not really too much for the visual. I've had engaging conversations with short men with a lazy eye and a comb over and found them sexy as I got to know them. See, women can do that. Men cannot. Men are totally visual. I do not think they find a woman attractive after getting to know her. They find her interesting after they are attracted to her.
HAHA! It would appear that we did! How talented are we :-p at least we have proof to our claims now :-pAdrian Paul! yes, I saw that show and saw him and was like Ooooo. Do like! Lol Tall is a necessity to me. I'd love to have someone who's like... 6'4 + but.. that's like.. not happening around here. I'm lucky if I find someone around here that's 5'10. That's why it was so attractive when my greek dude turned out to be 6'7. He failed though. >.>And yes. Stubble is gorgeous. I love it. Love love LOVE it. heh!I think my taste is because I'm young. I want someone who's good looking, Fit. I'm convinced that it's me looking for a good mate. haha. All Animalistic and such. :-p But I mean... Personality is big as well. It makes them more attractive. I can't date someone who's a jerk. I've done that already. I don't know... It's hard to find a guy who isn't a jerk now a days though. LolI'm half tempted to go on a dating website again, Just to see what's there now. See what kind of metal heads are on there or what not. hmm.
Well, don't take all the tall gents, dear. Some of us tall girls will hate you. You could date a 5'10" and still wear heels. I dated a guy one time who was my height and I had to wear flats and he was so self conscious that he'd try to get me to slouch. I felt like a hulking giant which I often feel like around petite gals. I'm glad I'm tall though. I have long legs and guys do enjoy that, I've found... I get what you mean about breeding stock which is why men look for attractive women with full hips and big breasts. I thought for a time when I decided to leave the marriage that I should only see men at least 10 years younger than me. I didn't want to be with old fuddy duddies who had lost all their lust. I got to know some younger men, though, and thought...I won't go more than 5 years either direction or they have no idea what I'm referring to when I say I used to wait up to see first episodes of Brady Bunch when it wasn't in reruns. Perhaps you need an older man who isn't insecure with a smart talented woman. They kind of expect to have a woman they can spend time with.
5'10 and me in heels makes me feel very... awkward still. I like having to look up at a guy. It's a bit more of a protective feeling... Me in heels = 5'8-5'9. LolI've wanted an older guy... I don't want him TOO old... Like... I think 30 would cut it a bit... I'm thinking somewhere 24-30 would be ideal for me... They usually have their foot in the door with their career and yeah. I wouldn't mind it. Heh. My age is usually just "I don't know what I want."
Exactly. I admit, when i was 16, I dated a 23-year-old. You will find around 28-onward the guys are definitely more settled in and starting to roll with their careers. I know a few men in their early 30s and they're starting to get that nesting need. They have the home, the job, and all but they have no one to come home to at night. Really, it seems most people nowadays find someone at work. You're together all the time. It's the natural conclusion.
If only I could FIND someone. If I had a job that'd make it easier. I wouldn't mind meeting people at work. But that would require Pinellas County to have available jobs. >.> None of this works for me. haha! I think that's what can be concluded from all of this. This area in Florida has NOTHING! Absolutely positively NOTHING.
You have tapped the well and it is dry. Yes, time to think about other places. Do you have friends or family anywhere else who would make it comfortable to start in a new city?
I have family in North Carolina. Which I wouldn't mind but I don't think I could live there. The driving in the area is TERRIBLE! My one friend is up in Boston but there's nothing really for me up there... I wouldn't be able to easily get a job or what not. I have an RN friend up there who can't find a job there at all.
That's amazing! Here they give huge money up front to get nurses. They are so desperate for them here. We have huge top notch hospitals and more than you can imagine of the elderly to treat--wealthy elderly, mind you. Hospitals are big biz here. You need the right locale. I agree about NC. I love the Carolinas but even as a Virginia, I think it's too far south for me because you get into bibles and tobacco and neither of which I live well with. The tobacco being their ability to smoke anywhere. Here where I am, you can't smoke in buildings at all. I love it! Then, there's the religious aspect and like you said the dialect, which I'm used to since I have kin in WV, but it still drives me nuts at a times, grates on your nerves like a Boston accent would. Either extreme is daft-inducing. I do love NC's scenery though. If I could go anywhere, I'd probably go to Charlottesville or Front Royal VA. It has the best of everything I love. Still, I'm not sure I'd fit in the east anymore. I'm a shorts-wearing liberal eco-weenie type. I don't know I'd fit in the fussy east. I just remember people wearing suits and being kind of stuffy and conservative. I'd want to poke them with a stick.
Yeah that's another thing with NC... Can't handle the Bible Belt. Lol And Boston, is just as bad because of their accent!! I'm stuck. But once I get my RN.. I want to travel with it. I think that'll help me out. Get a Foreign Travel bit... Send me to Europe. I think that's where I truly need to go. I think I belong in Europe.
That's an exciting prospect. Have you considered learning a language so you can work in any hospital and translate as well? I know here, having Spanish-speaking nurses is huge, they can go anywhere and work. How exciting. I'd want to go to a nordic country myself, but Italy would be nice or Scotland/England.
I've always wanted to learn a language. Lol I've attempted Finnish. I can curse up a storm! :-p I can say a SMALL amount in Russian. I want to go to a Nordic country. Norway, Sweden, Finland... Estonia. I'd SO be ok with Russia (Can you tell I like Russia yet? :-p) so.. yeah.
Yeah, I'd have suggest Russia, but the language--good God! Now, all my friends in Scandinavia speak English as well as we do with no accent at all. It's shocking. You'd be able to just there quite well. Most people seem to agree that Sweden is good but I would go to Finland simply because they are so freaking progressive. It's safe, it's clean, it's healthy and no religion. Yahoo!
Finland was rated the #1 country to live in last time I heard. Lol and I have a friend there who could give me connections to bands. :-p AND it's right next to russia. I found out the Russian Alphabet, and now that I did that, I can't read Russian when it's not written in Russian script. Lmfao! Figures, right?
Seriously, I was watching an Oprah about how women live around the world and the Finland one was so amazing. I felt like "these are my people." They were smart, clean, practical, respectful but not because of fear of God's wrath, because it made sense to live together with mutual respect. Their health care is amazing. In fact, anywhere in Scandinavia is great for being in the health care industry. Without the religious fearful running things and them being practical and science-forward, they are light years ahead of us.
Yeah I've loved Finland since I was like. 13. Lmfao! Have always wanted to go there. I was thinking that'd be the first country I'd request if I could ever get a travel visa with nursing. :-pThere's a bunch of places I want to go. I'd love to go all across Scandinavia. I'd love to go to Russia, I've love to go to France, England, Ireland. Germany. Greece. Romania. ... All over, really. Lol
I'm with you. Part of what I grieved while married (amongst a list of things, like never being kissed again, never being told I'm beautiful, never leaving the desert), I grieved that I'd never leave the freaking country. I'd love to see Swedish Lapland where my grandmother came from and Trondheim, where my father was from. I'd love to go to the Scottish Highlands where my mother's family was from. I'd love to go anywhere that's cold like Alaska, Iceland, Nova Scotia. In fact, I always wanted to live in Nova Scotia. Just the name makes me all excited. I picture it to be tall trees, clean water, yummy fish, icy winds, vivid colors.
I was going to mention Lapland. I've been turned onto it through the finnish bands I listen to. Nightwish has a song series dedicated to it. It's so pretty :) Oh, I've been labled queen dork by a couple of friends as of 5 minutes ago. Lol! Because I'm going to make a full costume for a female Draenei, and put together a belly dance for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bAN7Ts0xBoYAY!
Jeez, you remind me of myself. I never care if folks think I'm a dork. I do what I want to do the way I want to do it and I do everything with great enthusiasm. I'm just a big kid. You are much the same. Yes, Swedish Lapland would be great. My grandmother grew up milking reindeer. I have a feeling I'd meet people in Scandinavia and think "here's my tribe!" I never related much with the Scottish side of the family, but the Nordic relatives are so much like me.
I think the Nordic areas would be perfect for me. I honestly think that's where I'd fit in. Where I'd be able to find someone. It would be a good place for me, me thinks. And the music. They have sooo many concerts there!!! :-D And haha! I don't mind being a dork. It makes me laugh when I can carry on a full fledged conversation about World Of Warcraft. and know what i'm talking about as well. :-p Fun stuffs!
Damn! You are adork-able. Well, tomorrow I get up early and finish packing and hit the road. I'm going to San Diego on vacation with my son and his fiancee and their two little dogs. I drive the first leg of the journey, 3 hours to Yuma then my son drives 2 hours to San Diego. I will be able to write my books on my laptop the rest of the way there. I can't wait to walk on the beach with the cold winds and just relax. I haven't vacationed in over 2 years. It will be so awesome. I will be doing vids and pics from there and posting them, no doubt. Have a friend coming to take care of my place while I'm gone so that's a relief. In fact, I better clean the place a bit. Oops.
Hehehe!!! I like that, Adork-able! :-p I try ^.^Aww Fun, Road trips!! Have a safe trip! Sounds like fun! I went to San Diego when I was like... 13. :) I have a ghosty Photoshoot tomorrow (unless the weather turns on us again. :-p) I'm dressing in period style clothing and then the photographers going to turn me into a ghost. I'm excited! heh!
Are you going to show those on your blog? I want to see the results. Sounds great!!! I will be sharing my pics and vids on the trip and my own personal way of seeing San Diego. I never go about it the touristy way. You are likely to see vids of a homeless person pushing a shopping cart while wearing high heels or some other ironic absurdity. My son's little dogs haven't seen the ocean before, so who knows how that will go. Should be hilarious!
Oh most definitely, when I get them back. The post processing will be a bit more lengthy, cause one image will consist of 3 pictures put together. So it'll be fun. I'm excited ^.^And oh yay! Lol That should be fun to see :-p
Okay, You keep me posted, Sarah. I want to know how it's going. I'm going to hit the hay now so I can drive a straight line tomorrow without yawning. I might get some desert shots with the flipcam. Sometimes, the drives here are so endless and so barren that it's freaking creepy. I think I even have some good music I could set it too. G'night.
Will do! I'm attempting to update my blog a bit more. ^.^ Drive safe! Have fun! Can't wait to see pictures! heh!Night!
