That’s all I’ve got for December. It was a busy month. Lame.

Two Years

I’ve officially been posting on this site for one year. Seems like it’s been longer because I had a Google blog for several years. Happy belated Bday to my little blog!

The Break Up

MV5BMTQ4OTcwNDUxMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwMTAxNDY3._V1_SX640_SY720_

Over Christmas there wasn’t a lot on tv. One movie that I watched was The Break Up with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Anniston. I was playing around on my Mac and half listening to the movie in the background. Towards the end one particular scene caught my eye….

 

Brooke: I just don’t know how we got here. Our entire relationship, I have gone above and beyond for you, for us. I’ve cooked, I’ve picked your shit up off the floor, I’ve laid your clothes out for you like you’re a four year old. I support you, I supported your work. If we ever had dinner or anything I did the plans, I take care of everything. And I just don’t feel like you appreciate any of it. I don’t feel you appreciate me. All I want is to know, is for you to show me that you care.

Gary: Why didn’t you just say that to me?

Brooke: I tried. I’ve tried.

Gary: Never like that, you might have said some things that meant to imply that, but I’m not a mind reader…

Brooke: It wouldn’t matter you are who you are. Just leave me alone ok? Right now, just shut my door.

 

Story. Of. My. Life. Holy balls. Also, this scene between Gary and his friend Johnny O.

 

Gary: I mean, what does she expect, for me to want to go [to the concert] with the girl who dumped me?
Johnny O: I don’t know. She probably just wanted you, you know, to show her the respect of not standing her up or some shit, who knows?
Gary:  Well, damn it. I should have just said no in the first place. I don’t know why I called…
Johnny O: You know what? It’s her fault she got hurt. You shouldn’t even feel bad about it. She should have expected it from you. You’re a fun guy, okay? Everybody likes you. You’re the quickest guy I know. Anytime we go out, I have a blast. All right? But, you know, everybody who knows you knows you’re gonna do what you want to do. And if it’s not what the other person wants to do, well, that’s their problem.
Gary: That’s bullshit.
Johnny O: It’s not bullshit.
Gary: There’s plenty of times I do shit that I don’t want to do. That’s ridiculous. No. Like when? That’s bullshit to say about me.
Johnny O: When have we ever done something you didn’t want to do?
Gary: You know, I don’t know, off the top of my head. I don’t keep score…
Johnny O: When’s the last time we went to a Sox game? The Sox. Not when they’re playing the Cubs, either. We always do what you want to do and she always did what you want to do. It’s who you are. Everybody thinks that you’re their friend, okay? But the fact of the matter is that there’s not one person that I know that you trust enough to let close enough that they could hurt you. And her big problem is that you really liked her. I mean, she is the one girl you really liked. And no matter what she did and how hard she tried, you were never gonna let your guard down. That poor girl never stood a chance.

My entire relationship with M is summed up in those two scenes. My life is sad. 😛

Too Hard to Handle

Last weekend a friend of mine and I were talking about different things we liked in men, inside the bedroom and outside. She mentioned one quality in particular that she wanted. I laughed at her and I told her what she wanted, few men would not be willing to do. I also told her that it will take a real man to step up to the plate. I was laughing and I told her that I think most men can’t handle her. Then it hit me…

November Bucket List Completions

I had good intentions to mark a ton of things off my bucket list this month, but that didn’t happen. I actually didn’t do anything from any of my lists. Crazy!

Personal

I hate when you know extremely personal things about someone, and you have to pretend that you don’t know them. AHHHHHHH!

Deflated

That’s the perfect word to describe how I feel.

In mid October Ashley went on a ghost tour on a date. She text me telling me that she saw a ghost. She asked the tour guide to describe the man she saw, and the guide described his height and the way his hands looked. Ashley saw a man with a hat on and long white fingers that moved, so when the guide mentioned that, she got a little freaked out. She asked the guide to describe the man because she wanted confirmation that what she saw was the ghost of this man.  When she told me the guide was a medium I told her I would defriend her if she didn’t get that lady’s information.

We each spent 45 minutes with her last night. I plan on doing a post going over the things she covered while talking to me, but that will be for another day. She brought up things dealing with my past and my dad. Things that there is no way she had any idea of knowing. I’ve always been a little skeptic of psychics and anything of that nature, but as she was reading me and talking to spirits, I found myself almost in tears because of the things she was telling me.

Last night was like going through years of therapy. I can vouch for that because I went through years of therapy when I was little. I am still trying to process everything she told me and make sense of it all. I felt a multitude of emotions. Each time I think of one specific thing she mentioned, I feel like I could burst into tears. I felt like that drying my hair this morning as I was getting ready for work, and three times throughout the day.

I am glad that I was able to have this experience. I think it will really help me in dealing with my dad’s death. Dealing with someone’s death is never an easy thing, especially when the relationship wasn’t exactly… easy. That’s the only word that I can think of to describe our relationship, and that’s not the word I want to use.. I think that a lot of people can’t even begin to grasp that understanding until they lose someone they care about. Something that I feel like my bosses have a hard time understanding actually…

I will post an update in a few days. Ashley took notes for me so that I wouldn’t miss anything if I was in the moment with her, and I did the same for her. I’m just waiting for her to type them up for me so that I don’t miss anything.

Africa

Fellow blogger and ATLian Whitney recently went on a life changing trip to Africa. She read the book Love Does by Bob Goff and felt an urgency to do something with his foundation, Restore International.

I have enjoyed reading about her time in Africa and how it changed her. So inspiring…

Voices

I’ve been sucked in to this season’s The Voice. Why I haven’t been watching this show before, I have no idea. I am watching DVR’d episodes of the live shows and I’m blown away by a few of the performances. The Voice trumps American Idol for sure. Here are two songs that I heard because of The Voice that I think are incredible.

 

In The Closet

My bestie and I viewed this a few days ago when it showed up in her fb feed.

This message is awesome. I love how she makes you realize that everyone can relate to being in the closet.

Hair Products I Love

I am always on the search to make my hair better. I have a lot of hair, but it’s thin. I typically keep my hair short for more volume. I’m a big fan of this product for what I call sex hair. I feel like the next morning I need to wash my hair twice to get it all out, and let’s be honest, ain’t no body got time for that.

Enter DON. Blogger of all things celeb+. She’s awesome. She recently wrote a post on Oliva Palermo’s hair. Since Olivia has amazing hair I decided to order a few of the products off Amazon.

She has awesome hair, right? I decided to test out the Living Proof Thickening Mousse,  Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Spray and L’Oreal Professionnel Infinium 4 Extreme Hold Finishing Spray.

I have to say, I can tell a major difference in how thick my hair feels now. To the dismay of my stylist, I’ve been wanting to grow my hair out for a while now, and the thickening mousse might be the perfect product to help me get through that awkward growing stage. I really love all 3 of the products. If you’re in the market for volume and thickness, I recommend trying these products. You can buy both of them at Ulta. They also come in travel sizes.

KOL

It’s public knowledge that Caleb and the other Kings fight. You may remember this article. Alcohol obviously plays a big part in their lives. I think there are a few songs on their newest album geared towards recovery..

Those are just a few of my favorites. Try this link to hear all songs off Mechanical Bull. The past 3 CDs including this one, I have really liked every song on the album. I think that’s rare, which is why I’m such a huge fan. Can’t wait to see them in Feb!

Halloween Events

Friday night Laura and I had tickets to go to a Halloween party. She received a text from our friend Gretchen saying she was across the street meeting a guy friend of ours. So we parked and crossed the street to hang out with them. Around 3:30am he drove us to my car. Oops. We had fun just hanging out at the bar with our friends we didn’t regret not going to the party.  Friday night I was a dominatrix and Laura was a Spartan cheerleader.

One funny thing from that night stands out. Because I was a dom and I had a riding crop, I had two older men in their late 50s early 60s start hitting on me. One guy was very polite and was drunk enough that he kept lightly tapping my butt with the crop. It made me laugh because I am pretty sure that’s not how it’s supposed to be used. No light tapping.

His friend was a little obnoxious. He put his arm around me and told me I was beautiful. Then he said, “I’ve been looking for a girl like you to take care of and spoil. I’d take care of you for a couple of months.” I looked at him and responded with, “Just a couple of months?” haha I think he was a little shocked. Honestly, does that line work on women? Because, wow. Luckily Gretchen came over and was all, “NO! NO! You cannot be all grabby with my friend!” Thank God, sometimes in bars I feel like because I’m so short I just get flung around like a little doll.

Saturday night I went out with Ashley to a Halloween party. She was a peacock and I was a devil that night and I’ve never had more guys approach me in my life. As you can see from the link above, the devil outfit looked slightly different on me than on the model.

When we first walked in a guy asked me to dance with him and I told him I wanted to get a drink first so he offered to get me one. We had been in the building approximately .5 seconds. HA I was standing there waiting on my drink when another guy approached me. Previous dude was no where to be found after that. As we were heading down a flight of stairs one guy took a look at me and said, “DAAAAMN, take me to hell!” haha I thought that was pretty funny.

I had another guy tell me that I had the best T&A he’d ever seen. I’m thinking, of course I do..I’m right here and in front of you. Although, they are pretty fabulous. We mingled with a few other people then headed upstairs to sit down and talk. At one point I looked at Ashley and asked her if she’d be bummed if we left. She said no so we headed home. It takes so much effort to get ready that by the time you’re ready, you’re tired. If I dress up next year, I want to go as a bum so I can wear sweats. 😉
