Last Day of Pure Bliss

Posted by on Jul 23, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Today marks the final day of my vacation.  Since I’m not at all a conformist and refuse to use mindless words such as the newest and quite possibly dumbest in today’s English language being staycation I’ll just state that my week-long vacation was not only therapeutic but quite productive.  Many times when a person says they’re going on vacation others assume they’re going out of town especially at this time of year but many, including myself just like to stay home and relax.  No work, no having to be up early for work and zero stress.  The only negative thing was having my hair thermal reconditioned which required me to not wash or even put it up for at least three days.  With the hot weather (no complaints about that) I absolutely hate wearing my hair down but it’s necessary.  Other than that it’s been a terrific week of getting caught up on things and enjoying the summer heat though I have begun to notice it getting a bit darker earlier each night.    I hope this inane noun will soon become extinct from people’s vocabulary so they can once again say they’re going on vacation instead of sounding like idiots being the sheeple they so proudly yet foolishly have become. ...

Nostalgic Through and Through

Imagine my surprise while searching the television guide only to find Alice and my all-time favorite show Silver Spoons on Logo.  The second I began watching Alice I was flooded with so many wondrous memories of me watching that show every day after school and on Sunday nights when I’d completely immerse myself inside Silver Spoons along with having my very first crush on Ricky Schroder.  Aaahhh memories.  What an almost tragic shame it is that shows so entertaining are no longer on thus replaced with asinine programs and carbon copied reality shows.     What other show was literally a kid’s dream come true not only from having a huge train which could be ridden throughout their palatial mansion but all the amenities from the front door being opened via remote control to video arcades and other far out toys located directly inside the living room?  I really wish I lived inside that fantasy of a residence as the mallard phone is one I still want to this day. What better a sound when the phone rings than a duck quacking?  Need I write...

365 Days Ago

Posted by on Jul 15, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Unless it’s a special event or a catastrophe most people don’t remember what they did a year earlier but July 15th is a date I’ll never forget due to the fact that I ended up in the hospital and to this day have no idea how it exactly happened.  One year ago today at around 2:00 p.m. I’d just gotten back from lunch at work when I began experiencing the most horrendous stomach pains I’ve ever felt in my life. Over the next several hours they went from bad to excruciating to the point that I didn’t know whether or not I’d be able to drive home.  I should have asked to leave early but foolishly stayed until my shift ended at I think 5:00 p.m.  By that time I was doubled over in pain and just prayed to be able to get home safely.  Thankfully I did but when I walked through the door I was as pale as could be while holding my stomach and felt as if I was going to collapse.  I became violently ill after that and of all nights my family and I were planning on going out to dinner.  I began to wonder whether or not this had anything to do with these pills I’d begun taking due to my extremely heavy menstrual cycles.  I started taking them and several weeks later I end up with beyond severe stomach pains.   I was hoping it would just be a 24-hour bug but the problem was the persistent stomach ache that just wouldn’t go away.  I was in such pain I couldn’t sleep at all that night since the only way I can is on my stomach.  The next day I was no better while hoping whatever I had would just pass.  But at around 12:00 p.m. while lying on my bed I saw blood which is never a good sign.  Needless to say when I informed my parents of this they said we were going to the hospital.  After being admitted, poked and prodded I was diagnosed or in this case misdiagnosed as having colitis.  I had an infection which thankfully antibiotics corrected but ended up staying for two days.  I was released on my birthday of all days and I can honestly say it’s one I’ll never forget along with being one of the worst.    Once I got better thus began a decent into the abyss of endless trips to see doctors and specialists along with having so much blood drawn it would have been a vampire’s dream come true.  I ended up going to a gastroenterologist and after many visits was informed that I did not have colitis.  The doctor said he didn’t find anything wrong with my blood and said while he couldn’t directly pinpoint it he felt this entire bout was due to the pills I’d been taking as a result of my wretched period just as I’d suspected all along.     One year later I still don’t know how or what those pills did to make me become so acutely ill with an infection, a two-day hospital stay and a birthday still etched in my mind as the nightmare it was but once again it’s all due to the one thing I’ve hated ever since first getting it not long after I turned 12.  My motherf*cking period!...

Unexpected Intercession

Posted by on Jul 15, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

I used to believe that things happened for a reason, that is up until September 11, 2001.  After that fateful day I never uttered those words again.  But sometimes things happen that you never think would leading you to ask yourself if the occurrence wasn’t meant to be.  Such is the case with me.  I was originally off last night but at the last minute was asked to work a shift.  Usually I leave around fifteen minutes before I start to give me enough time in case there’s a lot of traffic but last night I decided to leave a half hour earlier figuring I’d just kill time by sitting outside for a while.  At first everything was normal as I turned into the parking lot and veered around the corner but then I immediately noticed a duck with her two babies following right behind her. It terrified me because of all the traffic that was coming in and out due to the busy time of night.  It was still light out so I parked my car and hurried over to where the duck and her babies were and discovered that there were not two but rather three duckies in tow.  She was so scared and each time she waddled out with her babies directly behind her a car came and she didn’t know what to do.  So I went towards her to get her out of the street while I began praying aloud to St. Francis of Assisi who I’ve called upon before as He’s the patron Saint for animals.  I pleaded for Him to get the mother away from the traffic and lead her along with her three babies to safety.  At that exact moment I felt so helpless knowing at any second a car could zoom around the corner as they do many times and kill these most beautiful of creatures.  So with my heart racing I got into the street to stop any more cars from moving and thankfully one man realized what I was doing and not only stopped he put his four-way flashers on and gave me a thumbs up that it was OK.  Thank God cars from both sides stopped as the mother duck and her sweet babies got out or were rather led out of harm’s way and moved out of the street and toward the left side of the enormously empty parking lot.   Once they were away from all cars traffic resumed while I continued to thank both St. Francis and the Lord.  I waited almost ten minutes while they all made their way through the parking lot and up to the grass all the while continuing to pray. Thankfully they made it safely and I was so relieved I then went into work but was still in a state of astonishment after what had just happened.  I know I was meant to be there at that particular time because I never go to work early to just sit and wait to clock in.  Why would I when I could just stay home until it’s time to leave?  Was it fate or possibly divine intervention?  That may be pushing it a bit but I know there was a reason for me leaving early but know it was St. Francis who heard my pleas and safely guided the mama duck and her ducklings to safety.     I never saw such a sweeter sight in my life than those three baby duckies following so lovingly behind their mama and I admit I wanted to pick them all up and take them...

Patriotic Panties

Posted by on Jul 4, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

With today being the 4th of July what better day to describe the stars and stripes designed underwear I got from Victoria’s Secret several years ago?  Now I must first point out that it’s not a store I frequent as the cost of their panties even on sale are exorbitant and the Love Pink logo on their clothing is nothing more than a status symbol.  But when it comes to glitter or sequins I sometimes can’t control myself such as the case when I was walking past the store three summers ago and was awestruck when I noticed a pair of sparkly sequined panties representing the American flag only the colors were red, silver and blue.  I immediately purchased them and despite the price of $50.oo they were hella worth it.  I realize Victoria’s Secret has quite an array of clothing consisting of a lot of glitter and sequins but the trademark Love Pink just doesn’t cut it for me which is why I never go in there.  I’m not into designer labels which merely shows off where the person bought the item.  Such pretentious crapola.     But the panties are entirely different.  The thing is they’re not like regular panties to be worn any day. They’re almost magical due to the shiny sequins which is why I haven’t worn them yet.  I’m quite displeased that I wasn’t able to buy the matching bra but I’m always looking even if it means having to buy it online I will as I want that bra.  I know the day will come when it’s time to bust out my flag emblem panties and I just may end up wearing my ruby red heels.  Now if I could only find the matching bra I’ll be all set.  Who knows I might not wear anything over them.    ...
