The World As We Know It… Thursday, May 24 2012 


As a lot of you may know the world of the Internet has pretty much evolved into a much higher speed, we want it now, product of research and news forums. We use the Internet for everything in our daily lives. If you think about it when was the last time you went a day without being on your computer or smartphone. You have your social media, news outlets, shopping, gaming, videos, iBooks, and ect. I am one you uses the Internet as part of my job and for personal use. Today, in the headline news in New Orleans only daily newspaper it was stated the circulation of the Times Picayune News Paper will only be delivered on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. This was very disappointing to read, because I kind of suspected that this would soon happen. See, my boss is old school, he’s 62 years old he reads the paper every morning at the office, he doesn’t use the computer, if he needs a document sent to his office it’s only in a fax no email. If he needs a phone number or address to be looked up, he uses this book called “the phone book”. I guess in a sense I’m the same way, I love reading the daily paper in the morning, reading each section of the paper, doing the crossword puzzle, and it’s not the same as the Internet. It just doesn’t feel like you are getting all the news, even though you are. I feel the same way about magazines and books, my family knows that I love to read, you should see my library of books. I love the feel of a book in my hands, turning the pages, and having my books in my sitting area. That’s why my family wanted to get my a reading device that I can read or purchase books and magazines. I just can’t commit to such a device when the world of publications of books, magazines, and newspapers is at the end of the world as we know it. It’s a sad day but I guess it’s slightly hypocritical of me to be out raged by this as I am writing my blog from my computer. Oh well, I guess this was going to happen sooner or later and I will hold out with my favorites as long as possible.

Life Quote Wednesday, May 23 2012 


This is a quote that means a lot to me. There are times in my past that if someone in my life would upset me or do something that would begin a flow of emotions (mostly anger), it would be very difficult to let it go. So instead of forgiving the person I would react in a defensive character or retaliate to their level. My parents have always told me, if someone is gossiping about you or being difficult to deal with, that it’s better to let it go. Because in the end you will come out as a genuine person and they will not amount to the person that my parents have taught myself and brothers to be in life. It’s hard to not hold a grudge but, its a lot easier to take the high road and feel better about yourself and hope that the other party will see their mistakes that they have made down the road. My parents instilled values and morals in us as children. I think in today’s world that parents are missing those same attributes to give their children. We grow up hating this and disliking that, because of what we learn from our peers. We forget that at a young age younger people are at an impressionable age, we forget that the bigger picture isn’t that you didn’t stand your ground but you became a stronger individual. I can recall periods in my life that I would fight tooth and nail to make good on my hurt feelings, but in reality it was making me weak and decided it was best to let it go. It never solves anything, be nice, forgive and try to forget. MayThis is my mantra for today…

How to Read His Beach Body Language Tuesday, May 22 2012 


I’m a big people watcher, especially at the beach. I mean it’s a classic form of entertainment watching complete strangers setting up camp, wondering “why in the hell would you choose to wear that article of clothing”, or the watching the group of hot boys not to far from you play in the sand.
I’ve always wondered what is he thinking as he’s all muscled out, walking with his friends, or with a girlfriend applying sunblock on her back. Well, if you’re interested check this out…

How to Read His Beach Body Language

Body language experts say that guys are way flirtier at the beach. (Hello, that’s what your slammin’ body on display does to a dude.) His actions can tell you a ton about his hook-up potential and availability, so here’s a guide to the sand and surf behavior that screams “I Want You.”
By Brittany Talarico

•He Strolls the Beach With a Bouncy Step
If you spot a hottie walking back and forth near your chair or towel with some pep in his step, pay attention. “A lively stroll conveys confidence and interest,” says body language expert Lillian Glass, PhD. He’s showing himself off for you, and it’s an early clue that he wants you to notice him.

•His Toes Are in the Sand…Pointed At You
“Even if his eyes and head are focused somewhere else, if his feet are directed your way and dig into the sand, he’s planted himself next to you to show interest,” explains Glass. Same goes for his upper body: If he positions his chest and shoulders at you, even if he’s looking at someone else, he’s still set his sights on you.

•He Plays With
His Board Shorts
When a guy grabs at the clothing around his waist, he’s subconsciously trying to draw your attention to his package. So if you see him pulling at the drawstring on his trunks or fiddling with the waistband, steamy thoughts are most likely running through his head. Thing is, this can also be a sign that he’s immature—he’s thinking only about sex, not getting to know you, adds Glass.

•He Stands Above You
“This is a power stance and he’s trying to dominate and show sexual attraction,” says Glass. Check how far apart his legs are too: If his stance is wide and his pelvis is facing you, then yowza—he’s really hot for you.

•He Splashes Around Solo
Uh-oh, beware this beach behavior. “It’s a childish, immature move; he’s jumping around in the water to try to get your attention when he should be spending more time connecting face to face or inviting you in for a dip with him,” says Glass.

20120522-102200.jpg
•He Touches Your Bare Arm
Sure it’s hard for a guy to resist touching the sexy skin revealed by your bikini, but grazing your arm is a tip-off that he’s feeling a serious connection. Where he touches you tells you what he has in mind. “If he touches your shoulder, it indicates friendship,” says Glass. “Anywhere below that suggests he’s sexually attracted to you and very interested.”

20120522-102308.jpg
•He Takes Off His Sunglasses
He may as well just get down on one knee right along the shoreline. Kidding! But if a guy removes his sunnies and engages in direct eye contact while chatting with you, he’s displayng real interest and is looking for more than just a happy hour companion.

Fun in the Sun, maybe… Tuesday, May 22 2012 


Well, it’s Memorial Day Weekend coming up, which means its beach time. I love the beach, it’s one of the things that I miss the most living in Florida. I had my car always prepared in case I wanted some relaxation for a few hours on the beach. Now, being that I’m not quite ready for my body to be in a cute bathing suit or have my tan on, I will make the most of it by saying F it. I made my appointment to get my spray tan (trust me my days in the tanning beds are long done) and will then shop for a bathing suit that won’t make me throw up when I see it on myself. This of course is the reason I need the spray tan first, because a tan body looks better than a white fat body.
I am on the right track as far as trying to slim down, gave up the fast food, no sodas, and allowing a skim latte 3 times a week. I’ve been bringing my lunch to work and counting my calories, my clothes are fitting better but, still not noticing a difference on the scale. My doctors appointment yesterday really pissed me off, because as you know I had several surgeries on my back late last year. As of the last few weeks I’ve been experiencing some of the pain and spasms in my back like before, so for my doctor just to give me a few prescriptions of pain pills and suggest working out isn’t an option just of yet. So hello gallon of water I’ll be drinking everyday. And I will be on the beach, I may not be my slim self yet but as long as my boobs look good, have a pretty tan, and a drink in my hand I will be happy! So, forget what everybody is thinking, if they are making me of you part if their thoughts it’s better than not being thought of as well. Tired of the over critical thoughts and opinions a person has to say about another even when they don’t know the obstacles they have had to overcome just to get to the “beach”. Hell, a year ago I was bedridden and miserable in pain, I couldn’t even walk from my car to the front door of my apartment. If this is just a minor setback I’m okay with this but refuse to let this interfere with my life again. I want to celebrate my summer on the beach, have a hell of a 41st birthday party, and to find a way to suck the fat out of me without crying!
For those going out of town this weekend, be careful but have fun in the sun!

I love this, it will be my new mantra daily:

There comes a time in life to let go of all the pointless drama & the people who create it & surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is to short to be anything but happy!

>Beggars can’t be Choosers Thursday, Jun 9 2011 


>As I am traveling my way to work this morning, I stop to fuel my car and I notice that a slightly older woman is asking several people for spare change. I drive to the other side of the gas station, to which she follows around and asks “can you spare any extra change”… to my reply,was ” NO, i’m sorry”. As, I return to the pump from paying the cashier, she attempted again to ask me and another person at the pump for “spare change”. When the other person and myself both declined her request for “spare change” she had the gall to insult us. I mean how is it that I have a job, fairly new car, bills, as does everyone else, that I apologized for not having any extra change in my pocket, to have this woman insulted me. Correct me if I am wrong but, I am not the beggar for “spare change” at the gas station in the early morning hours. Because I am on my way to my job that supports my cost of living and enjoy the pleasures of life that I can afford. So excuse me for not having a heavy heart for you, poor woman, get a job make an honest living instead of begging for spare change. Beggars can’t be Choosers!
