Dreams can feel sooo real. In addition to my back pain meds causing me to sleep, I can fall asleep with the aid of an Endorphin rush. I don't mind sleeping because many of my dreams involve being with a female that I would really want to be with in reality. I suppose that's the reason for the term 'Dream Girl'.
Don't tell me what you value. Show me your budget, and I'll tell you what you value.

Don't walk behind me, I ate beans. Don't walk in front of me, you'll give me an erection. Just walk beside me and carry my sandwich.
Wait, I don't think that's how that quote quite went.

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
Some people are like Slinkies... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs...

So I told her, "You smell like Drama and a Headache, please get away from me." I don't know why she was offended. I said please.
Such a busy day scheduled for today. I'm going to start off by breathing...
So I had an Action Adventure dream where I was trying to save this little girl from the mob. I was shooting, running and evading dozens of guys trying to end my life. They couldn't get me though, but I couldn't get to the little girl either. She had escaped them, but they swarmed her and when I told her to come with me, she didn't know who to trust so she ran in another direction and all I could do is shoot the bad guys trying to follow her while trying to evade them myself. It took climbing and jumping two large fences and then diving into some lake and swimming across it just to get away. My heart was pounding in my chest when I woke up. Couldn't get back to sleep after all that. It's almost 6 am, but who cares...I nap when I want to anyway. I'm RETIRED!! ^_^
Talking in my sleep is getting way out of hand. I wake myself up carrying on a conversation with no one. smh
I just had a dream that cops were detaining people and confiscating their cell phones and then forcing them to donate 7 dollars to have it returned when one goes down to the station. However, along with your returned phone, they give you a random VHS movie tape where I'm sure they came across them in some raid and wanted to clean out their evidence room and make a buck doing it.
Then there was this orgy, but that's another story.
It is said that some make it to the top on the back of others, well the back of others may get one to the top, but one is going to have to fight to remain there.
Take a VERY slow laptop that is having hard drive issues, but is the only laptop compatible with practically a brand new all-in-1 fax/scanner/copier and then spend about 2 hours trying to upload a check to your bank and having to download software and going through 3 different browsers until the 3rd one works to make it all happened. Yeah, then on top of that frustration, try chatting with a female at the same time. I need a drink or something.
That moment when a friend calls you to chat about random stuff and since she knows you think she has a nice phone voice, she makes it a point to call you even more frequently.....Yeah, that type of friendship. ^_^
If there is no difference between how one would treat a Husband/Wife from how one treats a Boyfriend/Girlfriend, then what would be the incentive to marry?
Theoretically, nothing. Being married does not mean you will be any more faithful, and should change nothing.
I see it as... a pledge to be with them for the rest of your days, whereas a boyfriend/girlfriend is... the same thing without a pledge of permanency. Nothing wrong with not getting married if people don't believe in it, either, however.
Tax purposes. Duh.
I feel when one has a BFF of the opposite sex and another person of the opposite sex (same sex if in a same sex relationship) is awarded the title BF/GF, Fiancee/Fiance, Husband/Wife, then that individual takes on the title of BFF as well now holding dual titles.
Your BFF should bitter-sweetly, but happily relinquish their title and become a 'Close Friend' having been introduced early on to the new partner.
A true BFF would not only accept this, but also respect the much deeper and intimate relationship that their previous BFF is now in.
Just one man's opinion...
Sex changes the dynamics of a friendship.
It can deepen it resulting in a committed relationship or turn the other person into just a tool to be used for an orgasm or it can terminate the relationship all together, maybe even turn a once friend into a life lone enemy.
Know which target you are aiming for if you take it there. Ask yourself, Is it worth it?
The difference between an "Acquaintance", a "Friend", a "Close Friend" and a "Best Friend" is the amount of Effort to "Keep-In-Touch" and one's "Action Taken" when that person is in need of any type of support be it Physical, Emotional, Financial, etc, etc.....Sometimes people do grow apart. Once Close Friends become just Friends or someone else steps up and an Acquaintance becomes the Best Friend in someone's life. Life happens and Action Speaks Louder Than Words.
Everyone should have at least one Best Friend that asks nothing of you except to be your Friend and accept you as you are. But to have that type of Friend, one must be that type of Friend. Out of 7 Billion people on this planet, everyone should have at least one that truly cares for them. If you find that someone, try not to fuck it up!
Why do people allow other people to have them feel as though they are not good enough for them? Never allow your mind to tell yourself you are not good enough for someone else you feel would look perfect in your life. If they find you lacking in what they are searching for in their life, so be it! That has NOTHING to do with you. What they are searching for neither Adds to or Subtract from you present AWESOMENESS!
What I can't wrap my brain around is when I read something or someone tells me that they still miss the person that caused them so much pain then left or got told to leave. What-To-The-Highest-Fuck? Seriously? I mean, what EXACTLY is that person missing? I feel some people are CONFUSING missing What-Could-Have-Been if that person didn't turn out to be an asshole with missing THE asshole.
It is said that if one has trust issues after being deceived or betrayed by someone who was very close, then that means one's heart still hasn't healed. Well I say if one no longer feels the desire to harm that person or dwell in the past, one's heart is probably as healed as it is going to be, it's never going to be innocent again. It will have scars, but it's just a little WISER now. It doesn't mean another can't one day come along and EARN one's trust where once one was naive enough to just give it away freely.
Not sure if this is my reality or I'm still being held a prisoner at The Center for the Study of Awesomeness...
It's true, some people will go out of their way to do something for you just so that they can Guilt Trip you into doing something they know you won't want to down the road. Unless you gave your word to repay their favor with a favor of their choosing in the future, if you don't want to do something, say 'No'. When they start in with, "but remember when I.....", stop them right there and thank them again for then, but your answer should still be 'No'. Either they are never going to help you again (which should be fine by you) or they will respect your decision and attempt to cash that favor in at another time, but you may contribute to stopping a bad practice that they've learned from someone.
Just because you may not meet the preferences of someone's ideal mate doesn't mean you're not Awesome or they're wrong or they can't care for you as a friend. It just means there's someone out there that is looking for someone just like you, but it's just not that person and you just haven't come across them yet. The days, weeks, months, years may tick by painfully slowly and you may feel you're losing hope of finding that special someone for you, but why not just enjoy life while you continue your search instead of hating on that one person who just isn't into you like that. People do have their own preferences you know.
People stress to much over hurting someone else's feelings. They stay longer than what they really wanted to at a party, they talk longer than they want to on the phone, they eat food they know taste all to be damn, and they say 'yes' when they really wanted to say 'no'....Listen, one can be tactful in doing what makes one feels comfortable. Being tactful is taking someone's feelings into consideration, but don't suffer by disregarding your own. But if they can't seem to respect your feelings or desires after you've tried to be tactful....Fuck'em! Do you!
I've been hurt physically and emotionally, lied to, stolen from, judged, and used...and those were by Family and Close Friends so don't act so surprise when I say I have Trust Issues...
Most things don't just happen over night so enjoy the journey...
If they are too embarrassed to be seen with you in the gym at your heavier weight, they don't deserve to be seen with you in the gym at your slimmer size.
That type of love from a man who will get turned on tracing her stretch marks with his tongue.
That type of love from a woman who is just as turned on rubbing his 1 pack as she was rubbing his 6 pack.
That late night call or message from your friend who just got off a 12 hour shift at work and is so tired they can barely stay awake, but they called or message just to see how YOU are and to say Good Night....Yeah...That type of friendship in Action. :)
The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Quotes....LOL!
Sheldon: Why are you crying?
Penny: Because I'm stupid.
Sheldon: That's no reason to cry. One cries because one is sad. For example, I cry because others are stupid, and that makes me sad.
Leonard: You'll never guess what just happened.
Sheldon: You went out in the hallway, stumbled into an inter-dimensional portal, which brought you 5,000 years into the future, where you took advantage of the advanced technology to build a time machine, and now you're back, to bring us all with you to the year 7010, where we are transported to work at the think-a-torium by telepathically controlled flying dolphins?
Leonard: No. Penny kissed me.
Sheldon: Who would ever guess that?
Sheldon: I'm exceedingly smart. I graduated college at fourteen. While my brother was getting an STD, I was getting a Ph.D. Penicillin can't take this away.
A RESOURCE is a source or supply from which benefit is produced. Typically resources are materials, energy, services, staff, knowledge, or other assets that are transformed to produce BENEFIT and in the process may be consumed or made unavailable. Benefits of resource utilization may include Increased Wealth, Meeting Needs or Wants, Proper Functioning of a System, or Enhanced Well Being. From a human perspective a natural resource is anything obtained from the environment to satisfy human needs and wants.
Sometimes when a person feels helpless, even though they may personally lack resources another contributing stressor is that they don't know where to find additional resources or who may be able to assist them.
One thing my career in the military taught me is to know all the resources I should be able to tap into when needed. This includes organic (internal to my command) and adjacent (external to my command) to include other branches of service or even civilian agencies. To never think that a problem is unsolvable. That someone has probably experience the same type of challenge and could assist in explaining how they resolved it. The military also taught me to think outside of the box and maybe attack a problem from a different direction. Maybe back track the problem to its very source.
Therefore, Process Management is vital. Taking the time to understand the process and who owns parts of the process as far as their responsibilities and the role they play is key to one's success in problem solving.
From birth to age 17, a child can rightfully blame 90% of their standard of living and other life events on their parents.
From age 18 to the day one dies, 100% of the choices you make contributes to your standard of living and other life events.
If you don't like where you are today, think back on the choices you've made. When you think of where you want to be in the future, think of the choices you will make.
Some people say if a gun was held to their head they wouldn't have a choice. This is incorrect, you would still have a choice. Although the outcome of one of the choices would be death or sever injury.
Some say the system is design to prevent some from succeeding. Success should not be defined the same for everyone. You define success for yourself. If one wants wealth, then develop a 'Product' or offer a 'Service' that will generate high demand and charge accordingly. If success to another is a life of Serenity and Peace, then remove that which contributes to negativity, drama, chaos, and pain in your life while also removing certain desires, wants, and attachments.
Now, don't get me wrong. Not everything that happens to a person is as a result of a choice one made. However, the way one chooses to respond/react to an event AFTER it happens will be on them.
The bottom line is, as an adult, Life Is All About The Choices One Makes. Stop blaming EXTERNAL forces (A Devil, Other People, The System etc, etc.) and start looking at the CHOICES you've made and are making.
Life isn't always Fair. Bad things WILL happen. So what are YOU going to do NEXT?
I ran out of honey mustard and didn't want to go to the store so I used brown mustard and mixed it with sweet-mate sugar..The Struggle Is Real! But Yum! ^_^
Some people think that all I do is lay around naked all day, fool around on line, watch movies, maybe workout every now and then, read books, practice magick, chat with hot women and maybe meet up with one if she's lucky, eat, maybe soak in the spa or jump in the pool, ride around town shopping if I have to leave my house at all, maybe do some house chores here and there, pretty much just in chill mode all the time, for over four years now....Well let me tell them something....Damn! They're Good! ^_^
Thought it was now warm enough to go skinny dipping last night....Nope, that water was colder than a hooker in January one week before pay day.
A "mistake" is a choice one made not consciously realizing that there could be a negative out come to that chosen action. I believe people make "Wrong Choices" far more than "Mistakes". ~ Lord MOGY
Cograts to the LFL's Chicago Bliss win over the Atlanta Steam. Sweet!
I had a dream of doing something that is completely out of character for me, but similar to what had happened to me in the past without a lot of the drama.
So in my dream I had a GF, but it didn't seem we were too happy together. Something was broken. I think we were traveling to a family reunion or something because other family members were in my dream too. We had stopped at this hotel and everyone got their rooms. My GF got our room and I think I was unloading the car or something, but all I know is the woman that met every physical characteristic I've ever had about the "perfect" woman walked right into my life. I think she worked for the hotel and was getting off of work. For some reason she saw me and walked over to me to say hello as if she too found who she had been looking for all her life. In my dream I grabbed and held her tight in an intimate embrace telling her that I just found the woman of my dreams and that she was the most beautiful woman I've ever known and I'm not letting her go.
Then it hit me that I had a GF that I had to break up with and at the same time this woman was asking me if I was seeing someone? I told her that I was in a relationship, but that it wasn't going too well and that meeting her must be a signed that it really was time to face reality and let that relationship go. Then she followed me to the room I knew was to be mine, which had to be a dream because who would do something that stupid? Anyway, we get into the room and notice that someone had already been in there and it dawned on her that the relationship I said I was in, well the girl was with me at that moment and she thought the girl could actually be in the room at that moment so she tried to hide. I heard someone trying to open the door so I latched it really quick to prevent what I knew was going to be a lot of drama. Well my GF had apparently seen me take another woman into our room so she was really not too happy about that so she was sticking her hand which held a gun in the space that she could make trying to shoot anyone she can in the room and I ended up having to snatch the gun out of her hand. Without the gun, she left.
I told the other woman she could come out from the other room she went into to hide and gave her my apologies for the mess I just got her in not telling her that my GF was actually with me at the hotel and all or that it turns out my GF is homicidal. My sister came to the room asking what was all the commotion and I asked her did she see my GF anywhere around and she said no. So I asked the new woman to just give me a chance to make everything right and I'd call her. She gave me her number and left.
I went on a search for my GF, but couldn't locate her. However, the new girl called me and said she didn't feel that she and I could work out because I had a crazy GF in my life and how wrong it was to actually try to get with her without first ending my current relationship. Especially when my GF was currently physically with me in the exact location I was trying to get with her.
I told her the heart wants what the heart wants. I said when I saw her I had two choices, my first choice was was to introduce myself, let her know clearly that I wanted to be with her, even try to express my desire in a physical way by sexing her up that day and then get her number promising to contact her after I terminate a relationship that was dying anyway, but knowing I ran the risk of her thinking she was going to be a rebound-girl and losing her. My second choice was to just say hello, continue about my business, break it off with my GF and then hope to meet the new lady again later, however, I ran the risk of her thinking I wasn't interested and some other guy beating me to her resulting in losing her still. To me, both choices ended with me losing her so I chose the one that at least allowed me to spend some physical time with her now. Selfish? Yes! Stupid? Yes! But humans make stupid choices all the time when it comes to satisfying their own personal desires.
So I begged her to allow me to just clear up my current mess where if we were to be together, she wouldn't have to worry about the drama of a scorned Ex-Lover. That I will terminate the relationship with my GF then wait however long I had to just to be with her. Even if I ran the risk of her falling for someone else.
Then I woke up.
I started thinking how a person can be in a relationship that they weren't happy in, but for some reason they refuse to just end it. Then the person of their dreams walk into their life and they give into the impulse to just grab that person and be with that person no matter what out of fear of losing the chance of being with the person they just feel they were truly meant to be with.
That's just crazy! However, it happens all the time. I see how people get caught up in love affairs. Even if only an Emotional Affair. But wrong is wrong! I'm from the school of thought that one should never get involved intimately with someone that is already involved intimately with someone else and also never start a new intimate relationship with someone else before ending the one you're currently in at the moment. One is when I'm single and the other person isn't and the other is when I'm not single and the other person is. Furthermore, if we are both currently in a relationship with other people, we should still not pursue a relationship with each other until we both end our current relationship.
When people meet and are attracted to each other, that's normal. It's going to happen. It's going to happen a lot probably. You're in a relationship, but you're probably not blind. However, your current status and morals should dictate the action you take on that mutual attraction.
For the single person, the thought of being the rebound person might always be there if they allow the other person that just broke it off with someone else just to be with them into their life. The thought of if he/she did it to that person, what is to say he/she wouldn't do the same to them when the next person comes along while they aren't doing so well and they think the other person must then be the true person of their dreams. It's called "The grass is always greener on the other side syndrome."
Some people stay in this new relationship even if things are going poorly because they refuse to face the fact that they could have made a mistake and walked right out of Heaven if they would have just tried a little harder and walked right into Hell because it looked pretty and exciting and new. In stead of watering and caring for their own real grass, they chose to go with the artificial turf that once torn, worn and faded, there is no bringing it back to life. No matter how hard you try.

So in the military we were taught strategy. To get in the mind of our enemy and think as they would think and then out think them and beat them. To always be steps ahead of the plan you feel they were initiating.
I've often told my Mother and some friends that they spend a lot of time attempting to think what others maybe thinking. I call it thinking for other people. No one is a true mind reader so at most one can only guess what another may be thinking based on how one would themselves think or based on what little knowledge one feels they know about another how they would think if one had their type of personality or they've known others with a personality similar to that person's and how they thought and responded in certain situations.
Sure, everyone must do this to some degree, but does that mean we surround ourselves with enemies or people who fail to express themselves or people who are so fake that they say one thing, but really feel and do another?
That's too much thinking for me. If I find I can't trust a person because their actions doesn't match their words, I won't try to out think them, I just stop fucking with them. Hey, it works for me.
Serenity, Happiness, Love Sex & Magick is what I'm all about. That's my focus in life. Either people enhance that, enable that, or get in the way of that. If the latter, they won't be in the way for long.
I remember waking up while on active duty thinking to myself how much I loved being a Marine and how I couldn't believe I'm getting paid to do some of the things that I was doing because I enjoyed it so much. That has resulted into me now waking up loving Retirement finding it funny that now I get paid for having done those things for 24 years and for the rest of my life waking up every day doing whatever I find enjoyable to do. Check Mate Life! Who's Your Daddy?! ^_^
Man, I had a dream about being on active duty again where I'm around what appeared to be Afghans enjoying an outdoor picnic in which they were so happy they allowed me to take pictures of them enjoying their authentic dishes and all I could do was keep looking up in the sky for any incoming drone missiles. Then the dream had me seeing a little boy getting bullied outside of the building I was staying and I stopped it and thought I was escorting him back to his apartment only to realize that he was a ghost and so was his Dad. The cleaning ladies in the hallway were freaked out when they saw the kid walk through a door.
There was some other stuff that happened in the dream, but a friend of mine called and woke me up and now all I can think of is rain, cell phones and potholes. But it was worth it...I like her voice. ^_^
I just had a dream that I was getting married. At the same time, I was part of the wedding party as one of the Groomsmen. I marched in with the other Groomsmen, got up to the alter and was wondering where the Groom was. I grabbed a chair and set down while at the alter and asked to see the wedding program card to see what the heck was going on. In it I saw pictures of me smiling and a female with long hair, but I couldn't make out her face so I started wondering, why am I sitting down like this wedding isn't about me too. Then it dawned on me that the wedding was too traditional. I'm not having a traditional wedding. When I get married, I'm having an Egyptian Wedding in Las Vegas, NV. I try not to do NORMAL. Too boring. ^_^
Most of the time the first thing on my mind when I wake up is how weird my dream was. Then I instantly can't remember it if I don't take the time to write it down. Damn that universal mind..... control-alt-delete function.
Normal people would go purchase groceries. Not me, I wait until I'm starving and then I wait a little longer and then I decide to go grocery shopping...If I don't buy fast food first and push it off another day.
I just don't like grocery shopping. I have to leave my home and travel to the store. Then I have to find parking, park and then go inside the store, choose what I need, pay for it, have it bagged, take it to my vehicle, travel back home, park, transfer the bags from my vehicle to inside of my home. Un-bag it and put it all away. Then choose something from among what I just purchased to eat...And don't let me have to cook it first! OMG! The torture of the mundane.
Ok, yes I know, it's a blessing. There are people in the world starving. Well they can come to my house and I'll pay them to go grocery shopping for me. Win Win situation as I see it.
I had bread and bananas before shopping today. That is all. I always do it like this - make myself absolutely desperate, write out all the things I want to eat, then go buy the stuff for those meals, generally cook it all and portion it off into the fridge and freezer.
I used to like shopping... don't now.
You're right, first world problems.
My dream is to move some where that you can shop on line and have groceries delivered.
