Scattered Summer Thoughts

These recent few blog posts have been highly stimulating, but a bit on the serious and depressing side. It’s time to take this roller-coaster in an upward direction.

My computer is working better than it has in the past 6 months. Hooray for free cable access! Hooray for no-more-safe-mode! Hooray for anti-virus soft-ware! Look to your right. I even updated our links. There are a lot of new ones, and the same great old ones. I also fixed
Clark K’s so it actually goes to his site. If I accidentally missed someone, please email me and let me know. I’m not well known for my organizational skills, so it’s entirely possible that I overlooked the best among our readers … Cripes! While typing this, I actually remembered one that I forgot. What can I say? The ADHD meds wore off several hours ago.

We just passed our 30,000 mark on our site counter. We’ve been using it since January 10th of this year. That probably seems like a lot of hits, but I’m still convinced that the majority of them are random people looking for porn. Since I hate 99% of all porn, that makes me happy.

Do you ever wonder about my blog partner, Lu? Yes, she’s a real person. In fact, she just left for a 2-week vacation to the wild wild west with her beloved husband. Occasionally she reads the blog, but she just hasn’t had anything to say lately. Maybe her vacation will inspire her. Until then, you’re still stuck with me.

Last month I met and had dinner with a fellow blogger. I was a tad nervous until about 10 seconds after we met. The following 3 hours were a total laugh-fest. Some of you might be familiar with him as our beloved
John Q. Public. To answer the obvious straight away:
  1. Yes, he’s gorgeous, even more so in person.
  2. Yes, he’s charming, and not anything like the serial killer my friend M.M. thought he would be.
  3. Of course I wore my favorite shoes!
  4. And, my favorite lipstick.
  5. And a killer dress.
  6. No, I left the riding crop at home.
  7. No, there was no sex … no making out … not even inconspicuous fondling .… not that I wasn’t tempted.

One of our blogging buddies googled my name and found an old picture of me on another web-site. He was kind in his description of my former self. I think he said, "not quite as gorgeous". Take a look yourself. First click here to see what I look like now (April, 2005). Next click on this word:
Theresa-of-the-past. I’m in the third picture from the top of the page.

Pretty big difference, huh?

I was miserable and it showed in the way I didn’t take care of myself. It showed in the forced smile. It showed in the exhausted look. It was a time in my life when I was taking care of everyone else except me. Guess what it got me? NOTHIN’ AT’ALL. Fortunately, a good friend said, "WHAT THE HELL HAS HAPPENED TO YOU?" It was the genuine panic in his voice that made me realize that I was in a boatload of trouble.

Our air conditioner was broken for 3 weeks. It was still under warranty, but it took 22 long sweltering days for Sears to get the parts and a technician out to our house to fix it. The good news: no homicides were reported at our address.

Sex. Yummy. So glad that you are getting it, and on a regular basis.

Sex. Yummy. Shit, I got distracted thinking about yummy sex. What else was I going to say?

DAMMIT. You aren't the same person. Literally and figuratively. Damn. And no AC? I wouldn't have made it 22 days here in TX. No fucking way.

I expect you are the same person, though you do look different. Whether it's seeing you in this order or seeing you the other way round, I think seeing you two ways makes me think more of you. It's through your words that I've nearly had my hands on your bling and your blang--not to mention, that sensual fun-center of yours!

By the way, how many posts have you written? The only totals I can see so far are my own.

You never fail to amaze me...& how well you express yourself (I'll take the grandma comment with a grain of salt today).

Be careful with that bear...they've been known to eat the vegetarians first.

You look even better to me now that I know you had to work it...on so many different levels to get yourself looking & feeling so smoking hot...you go girl.

John Q. seems like a one-of-a kind guy...I'm glad he kept you laughing...you're brave...I'd have been a nervous wreck.

Good luck with your AC...I'd be melting here without my AC.

Of course we're referring here to the contest that I won. (Had to get that in!!). Glad to hear that things are going well.

Congrats on the stats.

And wow, those photos. Incredible!

If only we had air conditioning in homes over here. Of course we don't get it so hot most of the time but lately it's been in the 80s/90s.

Damn. You've become more beutiful and I'm looking goofier. . .

Blaze - Love your imaginative kinky mind. So much so, I can't seem to shake the image of you wielding a Little Red Riding Crop atop a big black bear, while a dozen hot adoring men worship you.

Queen - Yes, once we introduce the topic of sex, it's difficult to focus on anything else. However, if the new man didn't have a highly effective central air system at his place, he wouldn't be getting near me. It's been 95+ degrees with killer humidity around these parts.

Ron - You have a way with words, my flirtatious Hot Chik loving man! ... my bling and my blang? I think I need to spend some alone time figuring out where those bits are.

If I remember correctly, this is our 175th post since we started late October, 2004.

Chick - Sorry about the grandma bit ... not sorry about the young and hot part.

Yeah, I've heard that about bears. If I ever go out in the woods, I'll be sure to invite Dick so he can walk ahead of me.

Thank you for recognizing the work. The hard stuff is in my head. The easy stuff is on the treadmill. I'd love to lose another 20 pounds, but maintenance is the best I've been able to manage for the past 2.5 years. I'm learning to love my middle-aged curves.

John Q was a blast to hang out with. Once the reality of dealing with one another in a 3-dimensional way settled in, we got on as the fine friends that we've become over the past several months.

Ed - I still owe you 5 Peanut M&Ms. I feel like you deserve 5 pounds of the little gems because I think your confidence in me was great motivation.

I love the climate in northern England and Scotland. It's usually so pleasant compared to the harsh extremes we have here.

Popeye - If you stop screaming and take your hands away from your ears, you might be a little less goofy looking.
Thanks for saying I'm beautiful. I think you are too.

...YAY for losing count of how many times you've had sex!! :)

You got yourself into the Sears Trap, did you? They make it easy to buy but tough to receive benefits. I stopped using them a few years back for precisely the reason you cite. But, they're quick about collecting on your bill.

I googled you and found that pic too. I was considerate enough to not mention it as the current one is much to my preferance.

Curly hair and glasses... I like.
