Pffft... pfffft... is this thing on?

I'm unearthing this blog that I never used much, as you can tell by the ancient posts. All, what, 4 of them?

I have plans. OH do I have plans. And you'll hear all about them - oh so many words, coming your way! But first. I want to try posting this to see... this thing on?

Three Turn Ons

SO behind, oh boy! The next thing on the list is three turn ons... I'm assuming this means sexy, weak in the knees, rattling my cage turn ons, so don't look for any profound thoughts here!

1. Nice hands
2. A bright, frequently used smile
3. Self-confidence. But not cockiness or assholishness. That's no good. I don't like that.

I'm restless again, kind of have been off and on for months now. Something's going to change this year. Soon. I'm not sure what, but it'll be good. or at least not boring.

Day something or other - 4 Turnoffs

1. Talking down to me

2. Interrupting me or anyone else who is talking

3. Eating with your mouth open / mouthbreathing

4. Being me to me and/or anyone I care about

Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)

I feel bad doing this one, because if someone's not on this list, it's not that he or she doesn't mean anything to me.

For this one though, I'm thinking back to people who have caused me to make major changes in my life. Sometimes, even just one small thing someone says or does makes me make a change. And it doesn't always have to be a positive comment - someone being rotten to me has also inspired change. A great big middle finger to the nay-sayer :)

1. Ray Suarez - I was at an especially un-focused time of my life, kinda bumping along. I always loved him on Talk of the Nation, then one day, I was in my 1998 Escort, driving over the Lorain Carnegie bridge to my shitty job at the phone company, and he did a show about community colleges. The show was all about how you can get a good education at them for not a lot of money. A week later, I was tri-C's newest "returning student", and I went on to finally get my degree from CSU.

2. Every horrible boss I've ever had. While they may have beaten me down temporarily, their "special brand of motivation" (to quote Glittergirl1970) spurred me on to better things.

3. My parents - Obvious

4. The doctor who treated Tom's cancer

5. Whoever invented GaiamTV. The BEST 10 dollars a month I spend. I use their workout and yoga videos almost every day.

Day Five - Six Things I wish I'd Never Done

This is a really tough one. I do goofy, stupid stuff daily. Hourly sometimes, when I'm on a roll. There's not much I can look back and not at least have learned something from. My life would be very different without the decisions I've made, and I don't know that it would be better. I have a great life now, I wouldn't change it. But since I HAVE to... this is my list...

1. Started drinking. Oh the money and bodily harm I'd save.

2. Bought into a business that was a fucked up mess, so we lost it all. This one, I'm not sure I've learned anything from it yet. Hopefully someday.

3. Bought our former house. Money pit.

4. Stayed at so long.

5. Been so loyal to some people who didn't deserve it or return it.

6. Gotten rid of this awesome Fender amp I had just because I was lazy and didn't feel like carrying it around while I moved (I had it in my more 'nomadic' days)

Day Three - 7 Things that Cross My Mind a Lot

1. What is _____ doing right now? (usually what is Tom doing, or our cats, or my dad)
2. Did I shut off the coffee pot before I left the house?
3. Why don't I have more ambition when I get home from work every day?
4. What should have have for lunch/dinner/whatever meal is coming up next
5. My posture at work sucks
6. Will I ever be able to retire?
7. I REALLY need to see a really, really great movie soon (I am in a constant state of needing to see a really, really good movie)
