Not a Gift

Every year at Christmas we are bombarded with ads for new cars. We see some weeping wife come out to a car with a giant bow on top. We might see a husband come outside all delighted to the same thing. Occasionally, its a teenager, but here’s the thing that kills me. These commercials rarely tell you the actual cost of the car, its all about the financing. Zero percent down, zero interest for this long, blah blah blah. I’m sorry to inform you, but if its not paid for then its not a gift. Its a loaner with a promise.
You see, many many years ago, I was in a relationship with a man that bought me the most beautiful living room suit for my birthday. I was over the moon. It was leopard print and had this gorgeous elephant coffee table. I went crazy decorating with all sorts of jungle themed touches. It was that same birthday that he took me to a party of some girl he worked with and we had a good time. A couple of weeks later I find out he’s been cheating on me with THAT girl. Needless to say that relationship came to an abrupt halt. A few weeks later, some men showed up with a moving truck to reclaim my living room suit, because it had been financed and wasn’t paid off! The one good thing I thought I had gotten from that relationship was being ripped out from under me and now I had no furniture at all. Why? Because I had given mine away when he surprised me with the new stuff.
So, dear car dealers, unless Mom, Dad, Wifey, Hubby, etc are coming in with the full cost of the car….that is NOT a gift!

Santa’s Helper

What if with women’s rights, we fought for our right to be Santa, too? Naturally, we’d do it much sexier than an old fat man in a beard, but would we stumble along the streets on Christmas eve drunk and pissing in corners, because this is the end of the gig until next year? Nah, we’d make much more money as Santa hookers or strippers…helpers, if you will. *grins*
Regardless of who Santa may or may not be, sober or not, I know my ass will be eating well and sauced up right. Hope your holiday weekend is a happy one♥

Learn To Let Go

Kesha – Learn To Let Go

Been a prisoner of the past
Had a bitterness when I looked back
Was telling everyone it’s not that bad
‘Til all my shit hit the fan
I know I’m always like
Telling everybody, “You don’t gotta be a victim
Life ain’t always fair, but hell is living in resentment
Choose redemption, your happy ending’s up to you”
I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Had a boogeyman under my bed
Putting crazy thoughts inside my head
Always whispering, “It’s all your fault”
He was telling me, “No, you’re not that strong”
I know I’m always like
Telling everybody, “You don’t gotta be a victim
Life ain’t always fair, but hell is living in resentment
Choose redemption, your happy ending’s up to you”
So I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
I’m done reliving my bad decisions
I see now maybe there’s a reason
Why, I, I, I, I, I, I been through hell and back
Yeah, honestly, it’s what made me who I am
Holding on to wasted time
Gotta learn to let go in life
So I think it’s time to practice what I preach
Exorcise the demons inside me
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it
Live and learn and never forget it
Whoa, gotta learn to let it go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Hey-eh-eh-eh, yeah
Learn to let go, learn to let go

Heart of Glass

Tiger Lion – Heart Of Glass (cold cover)

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do
Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re using, please don’t push me aside
We coulda made it cruising, yeah
Yeah, riding high on love’s true bluish light
In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

Let It All Go

I don’t have the strength for words of my own.

BIRDY + RHODES – Let It All Go

I’ve been sleepless at night
‘Cause I don’t know how I feel
I’ve been waiting on you
Just to say something real
There’s a light on the road
And I think you know
Morning is coming
And I have to go
I don’t know why, I don’t know why
We need to break so hard
I don’t know why we break so hard
But if we’re strong enough
To let it in, in, in
We strong enough
To let it go, oho, oho
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
If I look back to the start now
I know, I see everything true
There’s still a fire in me heart, my darling
But I’m not burning for you
We started it wrong
And I think you know
We waited too long
Now I have to go
I don’t know why, I don’t know why
We need to break so hard
I don’t know why we break so hard
But if we’re strong enough
To let it in, in, in
We strong enough
To let it go, oho, oho
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
Who says, who says?
Who says, who says?
Who says truth is beauty after all?
And who says love should break us when we fall?
But if we’re strong enough
To let it in, in, in
We strong enough
To let it go, oho, oho
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
Let it all go, let it all go
Let it all out now
We’re strong enough
To let it go, oho, oho

Bad Habits

“The only proper way to eliminate bad habits is to replace them with good ones.”
~Jerome Hines

You ever notice how bad habits go together like peanut butter and jelly? Think about a bar, before all the no smoking policies kicked in across the globe. Bars were always smokey, because anyone that smokes tends to smoke even more when drinking. How about when we snack while watching TV? I never snack when I’m reading a book, but the notorious boob tube makes me want to munch every time. These days just about any idle time puts a smart phone in our hands, our eyes glued to the screen. Sadly, that has led too many people to think that texting while driving was a good idea. Let’s not do that, okay?
That’s why I’ve recently started assigning one day a week to no electronic devices…okay, its more like no computer, because I’m not quite ready to give up TV and messaging with Josh. *grins* I never said I was perfect. I’ve put a book in my bathroom and I’m trying to leave my phone on my desk. As the cool weather sets in, I’m trying to smoke my cigarettes outside, taking the dog with me. I’m doing my best to replace bad habits with good ones, but its definitely baby steps. I’d love to hear from my readers about your bad habits and ways you’ve gone about breaking them. ♥

Help Yourself by Helping Others

“The best way to cheer yourself up, is to cheer somebody else up.” -Mark Twain

I believe this to be true wholeheartedly. For ages, people have figured out that the best way to get out of you own head is to help other people. When we sit too long in our own problems we can drown in them and find ourselves so lost that we begin to lose hope. It’s when we lose hope that we truly become miserable and that is when we are the most dangerous…to ourselves and everyone around us. Our misery makes us toxic. Think about how good it feels to help someone in need. I don’t mean dropping a few dollars into the bucket with the bell ringers at the holidays. I mean, to support a friend and watch them succeed. I mean, to hand a meal to a homeless person. I mean opening our hearts and genuinely helping someone that is going through something so wretched, that we can’t begin to fathom the road on which they travel.
We’ve all had things go terribly wrong from time to time. We’ve all watched someone else suffering and felt absolutely helpless from the sidelines, especially in a virtual world. However, there is something happening right now that could forever change someone’s life in such a wonderful way. It hasn’t started yet, but it shall begin soon. In the meantime, I want to spread the word and I hope that you will, too. A dear friend of mine has undergone the unthinkable this year and despite it all, she has maintained the same positive attitude that made so many of us love her from the very beginning. I won’t go deep into it here, but if you’d like to help someone that not only needs help…and would never in a million years ask….there’s about to be a fundraising event and there’s something for everyone.

Ribbons & Detours

Sadly, I just do not have it in me to write something creative at the moment. My heart is heavy, so I give you a song and some lyrics. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Silverspun Pickups – Ribbons & Detours

I can’t believe it
You of all things
It’s been a while
Memories teem
Some kind of ending
Lingering
In my tresedo
Internally
Ribbons and Detours mean nothing to me
Swaying the sentiments pulling the strings
Tempting me softly but killing the dream
You say it’s over but maybe.
It’s the same old thing.I can’t believe it
You of all things
Counting the moments
Deviously
In-turning our parts
Reconnecting
Tranquilized slowly
Inside of me
Ribbons and Detours mean nothing to me
Swaying the sentiments pulling the strings
Tempting me softly but killing the dream
You say it’s over but maybe.
It’s the same old thing
I gave the softest smarts
Trapped by the darkest parts
Whispered the tendered thoughts
Made of alderestic scenes
Ribbons and Detours mean nothing to me
Swaying the sentiments pulling the strings
Tempting me softly but killing the dream
You say it’s over but maybe.
It’s the same old thing
It’s the same old thing
It’s the same old thing
It’s the same old thing
