Color Me Surprised!!

I am shocked. Imagine my surprise, I'm chatting on IM with a friend of mine last night when he reveals to me that he likes me and has had a crush on me since sometime last year. I was floored. I didn't even know what to say. He asked me if I had any clue and I said no and asked if there were any signs, he said no he's shy.

So, how was I supposed to know?? Beats me. But he told me. Then he called me and asked if I was shocked and I really and truly am. We talked about going on an actual date to see if we clicked. That idea works for me.

Now, I have one request, please don't email me, IM me or call me asking who it is. I'm not giving out any information other than that above. If there's more to tell, then I will, but for right now, this is all you're getting!

PMS Strikes Back

Now someone has gone and done it. Someone has pissed me off to no end.

As if it's not enough that I'm already pissy. My puppy won't stop barking at me or at Smokey. He wants to play with us and I just want to rest. I have PMS cramps, which suck. They suck big fat hairy ass.

Anyway, some loser contacted me on the dating site. He claims to be a writing professor meanwhile his grammar sucks and his spelling is atrocious. Anyway, he keeps talking to me like I'm a moron. He sent me an email telling me all the same shit he told me in an IM, then told me that I could respond to the message by pressing the reply key. I think that the dogs could see the steam coming out of my ears when I read the message. Oh and he also told me that he hates to write even though he is a writing professor.

Let me share with you my exact message:

"Hi Doug-

I'm fine thanks. I know how to work my email, you do not need to give me instructions like I'm some kind of moron. I also find it impossible to believe that you are a professor of writing since you spell most of the words wrong and your grammar sucks.

No you may not call me and please don't write me again, just push the delete key and delete my information."

Was that too harsh? Come on, you can be honest, I am too worn out to travel to you and rip your arms off and beat you with them. I promise.

Run And Hide While You Still Can

That's a picture of me. Yes it's recent. I have PMS. I suggest that you drop the chocolate, the pretzels and the ice cream and back away slowly. I SAID, DROP THE CHOCOLATE.

Most of the time when I have PMS I just get a little emotional and weepy. I cry at commercials (shut up) and movies. Mostly stupid shit. Then there are times when I want to rip people's arms off and beat them to death with them just for smiling at me and saying hello. Heaven help the people that just made eye contact. Don't get me wrong, I hardly ever get this way during that time. However, this is one of those month's where you don't want to know me.

This is why I'm so pissy this month. My actual start date is Tuesday, yet for the past two days I'm already bloated, having cravings and I already have the feeling like Aunt Flo has started even though she hasn't. Ladies you know what I'm talking about. Oh yeah and my boobs hurt. Those of you that haven't seen "The Rack" that's an awful lot of tissue and an awful lot of pain. They hurt when guys stare at them, that's how tender they are this month. Oh and when my lovely aunt actually shows up, I'm going to have awful cramps to go along with everything else.

Now that I have filled you in on the details, please let me know if you still don't understand why I'm feeling so pissy. But I will warn you, if I have to come over there to explain it, you had better have plenty of chocolate or chips or ice cream or you'll be sorry.

Now give me some fucking chocolate or nachos. Please I beg you, satisfy the beast.

HUH??? WTF???

Today started out like any other. I slept in, I walked and fed the dogs, I lounged, I surfed the web.
I ironed and I watched Broke Back Mountain, shush, I was curious.

Then it happened, somewhere before dinner and after the UPS delivery. My father called, I didn't answer (it's habit). My father is not the greatest dad in the world, he's some where between, donor and he remembers our names and birthdays. However, he's my dad nonetheless. I sent him a Father's Day card and I called him. On Sunday. Today is Thursday. He called back and this was his exact message, "Hi, got your message and card, take care." WTF was that?? No thank you, no call me, no nothing!! WTF? Could it be that my father has washed his hands of me? How do you just say good-bye to your children? From here on out, I wash my hands of him and if I should need to speak of him, he will be "THE DONOR."

I'm so glad that I have therapy tomorrow. I don't think I can take much more. On the bright side, my puppy is so damn cute and I'm so happy I decided to get him.

I Survived!!!

I spent the entire day here (see above) with my mother not to mention the car ride down and back and I'm proud to say that we're both still alive.

I took Smokey back to my old Vet's office in CT for his dental work. I was told by my new vet that he needed a dental and that it would cost about $600 and that he would need 3 teeth extracted. I took him to CT and they did the dental and determined that no teeth would need to be extracted and it cost me $156. I also had Rocky microchipped while we were there and that cost $30, up here in NH it costs $75.

We dropped the dogs off at the vet's at about 9:30 this morning after driving an hour and a half to get there, then we continued 15 minutes down the highway and went to Foxwoods. I lost $50, my mom just about broke even. She treated me to lunch and ice cream. I love my mom.

We picked up the dogs around 4pm and then headed home, which took about 2 hours with some light traffic, actually it was an accident, other than that, there was no traffic. On the way home, the University that I applied to contacted me to let me know that I had been accepted. Woo hoo, go me. I then went out to dinner with my mom to celebrate.

Smokey is doing very well after having been put under. He was a little dopey when I picked him up and pretty much passed out all the way home. In fact he's passed out now too. Rocky is pretty tired as well.

Rocky started his puppy class on Sunday. He was the only one that participated. There was a 9 week old, 2 lb Papillion that slept through the entire class and then there was a Boston Terrier that hid under the chair and shook the whole time. Rocky was active and vocal and he just wanted to play. He caught on fairly quickly to the clicker that we will be using for training. So it was good. We got some free samples. After class I took Rocky over to see my niece because according to her, she loves him so very very much and really really wanted to see him. Meanwhile, every time he got near her, she ran off. It was quite funny. He still had a good time and came home utterly exhausted.

Well, that's about it for now. Hope you're all doing well.

Today was a good day

Today I didn't do much. I went to work and actually had a successful few hours there. Then I came home and had lunch then went to the movies with my mom, we went to see The Break Up. I loved it, very cute and funny, I recommend you go see it. Then my mom and I went out for dinner, she treated for both. I thanked her. We actually had a nice time, I didn't get annoyed with her, we didn't argue, we had nice chats. It was all very nice.

I also found out today that my nephew has the measles. He had his vaccine and had a bad break out. Poor little guy. He's so miserable.

Tomorrow I'm having breakfast with my brother for Father's Day and then Rocky starts his puppy class tomorrow. Since you asked, Rocky is doing well, he's doing well with his housebreaking and he's learning how to do new things everyday, like shewing on my rug, my couch, my boxes and anything else he can get his tiny puppy mouth on. Smokey is also doing well, he turned 10 on Thursday and this Wednesday he's having surgery, hopefully all will go well.

Other than that there's nothing else to talk about. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and if you're a father, Happy Father's Day.

By Request....

Rocky coming out to explore his new surroundings.
Smokey and Rocky relaxing together. Don't they look alike?

Rocky wondering what this object is that I am pointing at him that keeps flashing.

These are the lights of my life right now, my two boys. My niece and my nephew are the highlights of my life, but these two come as a close second.

Anyway, not much else to say, so feel free to oooo and aaaaahhhh.

No it's not a new TV network with some sort of amphibian as a mascot. It's Friends With Benefits. This hot guy from the dating site that I swore I was leaving for good has contacted me asking if I would be interested in an FWB arrangement. He just got out of a long-term relationship and is horny but is not ready for another relationship.

Now most people would be offended by this, however, I'm not one of those people. I'm trying to decide if I can handle this type of arrangement. I mean after all, I have needs too, needs that haven't been met in a very long time. A very, very long time. Anyway, enough of that.

The only thing that's holding me back is that I don't want to get hurt, in other words I don't want to get attached. Other than that, I could really go for this. I've been weighing the pros and cons.

Any suggestions?

I'm Waving The White Flag; Throwing In The Towel, etc, etc

I have officially given up on men. It has come to my attention (today) that my ex got engaged right after we broke up. Ain't that a kick in the pants? So, he broke up with me a week after my dog died and then he got engaged a week after that. However, he continued to tell me that it wasn't over between us for a month and a half after we broke up. What a nice guy huh?

I suppose I should be happy that she's the one that's going to wind up with this asshole, but it still hurts like hell. This has really hurt my self esteem (again). It seems that I'm only good enough to be used and nothing more. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that this has happened to me. It's more like the third time and let me just say that it doesn't get easier.

As of right now, I'm done. No more men for me. No more dating, no trying to meet someone, no more dating sites, no more nothing. I've officially given up. Good luck to those of you in relationships or those of you still pursuing them. But no me, no sirree. Perhaps I'll take a break from all online activities.

What really sucks is that I saw my therapist this morning, before I found out about the engagement of course and I won't be seeing her again for like 2.5 weeks. I think that I best be calling her back to see if I could move that up, I don't think I'm going to make it until then.

It's Looking At You!

You may be wondering what that is and why it's looking at you. Well, except for Marty, he already knows what that is.

This is the coat rack that I saw when I was in London and didn't buy. I saw it twice and liked it both times and never bought it.

Marty, my dear friend Marty, went to London and purchased this coat rack and brought it back to New Yawk with him, then he shipped it from New Yawk to New Hampshire and here it is, on my couch staring at you. It will be hung up in my mud room as soon as my brother comes by the apartments. Although, it's so cute, I don't want to hang stuff on it, I just want to stare at it for awhile.

Anyway, I just wanted to share it with you. Isn't it cool?

Weekend Updates

Today was my nephew's 1st birthday. So I spent my entire day over there celebrating with my family. He's so cute. My father flew in for the occasion with his fiancee and he met my nephew for the first time and we met her for the first time.

My father was his usual obnoxious self. I had the opportunity to talk to his fiancee alone and all I can say is, "H-O-L-Y S-H-I-T!!" I do not think that there will be a wedding. She was telling me all of the lies that my father has told her over the last two years that they have been together and also that when they fight my father's temper lets loose and he says these horrible things to her and then acts like nothing happened. I wanted to laugh, now hear me out before you judge me, because this is the father I was referring to. The father I grew up hating. She told me all the lies that he fed her, that my stepmother cheated on him, while that is true, he neglected to tell her that he cheated on my stepmother many, many times and also that he cheated on my mother and that he hit my mother. Also, he told her that he wasn't close to us because my mother poisoned us with lies. I looked at her and said, actually she poisoned us with the truth.

Long story short, she told me she knows nothing about my father and that the things that she does know, are lies, or so she found out this weekend. She plans on calling me sometime when he's not around to get the scoop. Boy I can't wait. My brother had a big fight with him this weekend and decided that he's not invited back. My sister in law broke out in hives and cold sores before he even arrived.

Oh and my car broke down. Yes, my brand new car broke down. I got off the highway and all the lights came on, the cruise control light started blinking and the car decided that it was not going to go over 5mph. So I drove the rest of the way at 5mph. That was fun. I had the car towed and then had to find a ride to the only car rental place that was open. At least the car is under warranty. It was just an added bonus to this great day.

The party was fun, meeting the fiancee was fun. Oh and my father actually came through and gave me a check for Rocky. My niece wants to meet the puppy. I finally told my brother aka my landlord about the puppy and he asked my niece if she wants to meet him and she does, she can't wait.

Rocky is a handful. He's cute, he's sweet and he's not housebroken, but we're working on that. Smokey still has his issues, but they seem to be getting along.

Anyway, I'm beat and I'm going to crash. Hope you all had a fabulous day!
