I must have done something right

It would seem I've aroused some intrigue with my last post. Well, after chatting with the man in question, you know who you are... lol, it has been decided that we're going to start telling people. So as I often do, I go big and I tell EVERYONE.
I've met the most amazing man, he's sweet, sensitive, incredibly caring and generous, and truly genuine. He makes me laugh and I don't think I've smiled that much in years.

I guess that's what happens when you stop looking. I'd almost given up completely, beginning to think Ophelia must have been a 26yr old single woman when Hamlet uttered those famed words "get thee to a nunnery"; well not really, but it makes for a better story. All I can say is about a month ago I wasn't looking but I met someone wonderful and I'm enjoying exploring this crazy journey of ours. I'm happier then I've been in years, AND we both speak mac, lol. (We're both designers, lol.)

Well, I'll keep you all posted.

Slow dancing in a burning room


Yes, I'm still around and I'm quite ok. I've gotten a couple e-mails from people noticing I haven't posted in a while and checking in on me. Thank you.

Things have become quite busy in my little life in both good ways and not so good.
I'm re-considering friendships because they don't seem to fit me anymore. I think I've outgrown some people in my life, and on the flip side I've grown into a whole new set of circumstances. I'm finding it quite intriguing to look at where I was 6 months ago and where I am today.

I think this a good place for me to share all the things I'm so thankful for;

  • Having a wonderful place to live; a place that feels more and more like me every day.
  • My two wonderful kitties that wake me up with snuggles and kisses.
  • My family who stuck by me during what seems to have been the hardest thing I ever had to do.
  • Having someone I can call and tell all the good and the bad and have them support me.
  • Friends who even if I don't talk to them for a couple months still greet me with kisses.
  • Earlobe hickeys.
  • Being whisked away so I didn't have to think about what was supposed to be on Feb 24.
  • Friends I can be silly with - "Oh My"
  • mac - need I say more.
  • Bowling with the wrong fingers.

Amongst MANY MANY other things. Here's hoping the next 6 months will be as enlightening.

"It's as simple as something that nobody knows, but her eyes are as big as her bubbly toes..." Jack Johnson

My fave new boots have let me down and given me a blister on my big toe.


I'm a mac...
I work as a graphic designer so it's really the only way to go.

I've had quite a few very late nights at work as of recent. Some days I feel like I may as well bring a sleeping bag.

This is my first post in the 365days series. This has been going on on flickr for quite a while and I've decided to give it a try. So here's day 1, just out of the shower, not a stitch of makeup.
Be sure to take a look at my flickr page to keep up to date on this project.

Creepy Candy...

Here's a couple pics of some odd looking candies I've come across.

<----The licorice Aliens (Licorice kids) just hanging out. Yo! Lol

Chocolate Ju jube bunnies? ------->
Who knew? BTW they tasted like icing, and there's nothing like a candy where in a 39g serving you get 24g of sugar. But you do get 2% of your daily iron and calcium. Blah.

Post #100, the good, the bad and the sometimes ugly

I spent the evening with a couple of very close friends and after spending a night laughing things feel a lot better. There's still a lot going through my head but it's nice to get a break. Thanks guys.

*****Original post*****
Well this is my 100th post.

You're probably all expecting celebratory cheers and such, but not today. Sorry.

Sometimes in an effort to make yourself look stronger you put on a tough front, you tell the world that everything is great and that you're so extremely happy that they should all hope to be like you one day. However, deep inside you're not ok.

Someone new and special in my life (TS) asked me the other day if I was lonely, of course I brushed it off and was like "nah, I'm fine", but I got to thinking about what he asked and yeah I am. There's really nothing like silence to get you thinking about what's missing in your life. I know things are really good for me compared to some.
Poor TS has problems I just wish I could brush away and make everything better.

My ex is in rehab for an addiction that took over his life and I found out that it almost ended it.

There are people starving, people in much worse situations than me.

So why is it then that I'm throwing my very own pity party? I don't know the answer to that. Probably just because I was canceled on twice today, so I'm feeling a tad rejected.
I just hope things get better soon.
