Hey Mum

I pulled into Zinger Coffee & Tea's drive through just as Bachelor Girl's song "Buses and Trains" started coming through my speakers. It had been a long time since I'd listened to that song. I liked it as a teen, but hadn't really thought much about the song as a whole. But as I grabbed… Continue reading Hey Mum

The Grand Scheme of Things

In a few weeks I turn 34. Logically I know that is not all that old.... But maybe it's Karma because I called Justin "old" when he turned 34 yesterday - same as Dane when he turned 34 in October. But now... Siiiiggghhh... I'm starting to feel old myself. Really, it's not so much a… Continue reading The Grand Scheme of Things

Scary eyes

Now - back to some more regular programming. LOL as in - not just a whole bunch of pictures. Back to old themes and old memories - or in this case memories forgotten. In my first Treasures post, I mentioned a journal entry in one of the journals I shared with Anneke. It was a… Continue reading Scary eyes

Emotional Response

Last night I submitted a post to be a guest writer on another blog, and in the meantime I wanted some feedback while I wait for it to be published. I suppose that it's a bit backward and I should have looked for feedback before submitting it, but oh well. I was telling Maja about… Continue reading Emotional Response

Taylor Swift Gets Me : Reprise

While we’re on the topic of Taylor Swift, I went back and perused my posts from February 2015 – when I started this blog – and came across one of the first posts I had written that was also a I-have-a-girl-crush-on-Taylor kind of post. What I had done is compiled and mashed up several of… Continue reading Taylor Swift Gets Me : Reprise

Well Fit

I dunno why I haven't thought to mention this to Justin before... Ha, he may have seen it on my FB... But I dunno that he gets on enough to notice every post I write... so who knows... But Justin posted something about UFC yesterday and I thought "Huh, I don't think I mentioned to… Continue reading Well Fit

Friends are the family we choose

Of course I told Justin that the girls thought he was hot. What else was there for me to do in such a situation? He was concerned it wasn't his "best showing" as he tends to put "goofy pics on facebook." "Ah no, I tried to select good pics of you guys ...The one where… Continue reading Friends are the family we choose

We got to talking about our types... one of us is single and and we needed to know if she might could be interested in other singles we knew.... or... more specifically, that I knew and wanted to… Continue reading Girl’s night

Them attractive 90s boys

I don't know if you all have heard, but supposedly JNCOs have been in the midst of a comeback. For several months I have tried to convince Vollie-Dan that he should go baggy style instead of wearing those horrid skinny jeans - and then I heard this glorious news and attempted to convince him JNCO… Continue reading Them attractive 90s boys

Hopefully he won’t read it…

I typed up a message, copy and pasting for the most part - since I had sent basically the same message to a handful of other men. The messages and emails were notifications that I wrote a particular book and that I had written about them in it. I told them if they wanted to read… Continue reading Hopefully he won’t read it…

The Abstinence and Shaming Culture

I don't talk much about topics that tend to make people emotional. I mentioned that in my last post. Topics that would be considered "subversive" in any way with any of my friends or acquaintances I avoid because I just don't want to hear it. I don't want to argue. I don't want to feel… Continue reading The Abstinence and Shaming Culture

Followup to “That One Night”

**Not for youth audiences again please** Look, I know putting that^^ little notice won’t stop any young people from reading these posts if they want to. May even peak their interest… So if any youth actually read these posts regardless of my request, I hope that you are at least taking a lesson or two… Continue reading Followup to “That One Night”

Jimmy (part 3)

I woke up at 3:30 AM this morning. That's when the previous conversation with Justin happened. When I still couldn't sleep, I wrote the post about it. Then, a little bit before 7 AM, I sent the links to Jimmy so he could read them... and read them he did. Silly me, I had mostly… Continue reading Jimmy (part 3)

Jimmy (part 2)

"I found it interesting that he actively didn't like me." Justin's words appeared on my phone. "I had a reason to dislike him, but as far as I know, I never really had any chance to give him a reason to hate me because I never really interacted with him." "I don't remember what it… Continue reading Jimmy (part 2)

Another Doppelganger (Jimmy) and a school girl crush

  I mentioned in my previous Eurovision post that Stig Rästa from Estonia reminds me of one of my friends back in the US. I pointed it out to him and he was like "Holy Crap!" Haha. Anyway, before I go any further with what I am about to write I need to come up with… Continue reading Another Doppelganger (Jimmy) and a school girl crush
