Should I Stay or Should I Go

She had a habit of being early for all of her appointments, which wasn’t usually a problem. No doctor or employer had ever complained that she was early. She hated being late, absolutely hated it. Naturally, she didn’t care too much for others being late either. However, as luck would have it…the majority of her friends were consistenly late.
They promised they would be on time for the grand opening of the new  art gallery style nightclub. They promised. She didn’t blame them when she showed up ten minutes early, but  twenty-five minutes later she had grown impatient! She decided to  generously allow them another ten minutes before she gave up and went home. She didn’t want to go in there alone!
As she stood outside eyeing her watch, she thought to herself, “Maybe for once in my life I should break my own norms and do something without my friends holding my hand.’ Afterall, she had gotten all dressed up for this.
Looking from her watch the wall, the neon sign outside the club says, “Let’s Get Weird.” She shrugged to herself and decided to give them another five minutes. While trying to decide what she would do if they didn’t show up a song getting stuck in her head as she contemplates her decision, “Should I Stay or Should I Go.”

You're Late

Totally Zen

Asian themes are all the rage these days and when I saw these shoes from Phedora, I knew immediately that the only real way to do them justice was with my new Zen Garden backdrop. Afterall, there’s nothing more zen than lying naked in the sand with a pair of heels in the air, right? *giggles* What? I don’t know about you, but I feel totally  zen! So, ya know, if you’re feeling stressed or whatever, grab yourself a little zen garden rake and join me in the garden. *grins*

The Broken Clasp

She was just taking a walk in the park. She hadn’t intended on going to the very spot where they first met. She found herself frozen in her tracks as her mind wandered back in time. Remembering his smile and how beautiful she thought he was from the moment she saw him. She smiled as she remembered it was at that exact moment, as if fate had planned it all along, that the clasp on her necklace gave out and her necklace slipped into the shallow pool beneath the bridge. Without hesitation he jumped in, splashing water all over her, but retrieved her necklace. He offered to fix it for her and they headed over to a picnic table where he pulled out his Swiss army knife and got to work. They talked for hours that day and were seemingly inseparable for months after.
Then he was gone, just like that. Such a random and bizarre accident. Part of her wished she had never met him so she would never have to hurt so deeply, but she also knew that her life was far better for having known him. She knew he was a blessing from the day they met and for all their happy times, she could never fully regret that love.

Let’s Go For a Swim

Part 3 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

We got checked in to the motel after our long and very rough road trip. Flipped on the television that shows nothing but “adult movies” and washed up. Despite the advertised pool being an above ground pool that’s oddly placed ACROSS THE STREET…we threw on our bikinis, grabbed the vodka and headed for the “pool.”
“Hope this pool is clean and cold,” Grace sing songs as she skips across the road, looking over her shoulder, “Oh good, you got the vodka!”
“We’re going to need it after the day we’ve had. Just wish we’d thought to get some tequila!”
“Oh gawd, no, I can’t carry you back to the room if you get drunk on tequila, Sady!”
“Well, next stop we make I’m getting some, so you better figure it out!”
“Damnit, Sady, we’ll have to get some WiFi so you can flash Kess and Posh on skype again!”
We bursts into giggles and make our way up the ladder into the pool.

to the pool

We manage to climb into the bizarre motel pool. It was so refreshing and surprisingly clean. Out of nowhere, Grace pulls out a selfie stick, “Pose pretty with me!”
“Oh, gawd, Grace, with the motel behind us? Are you serious? And exactly where did you have that hidden?” I really did wonder where she had hidden that thing.
“Don’t you worry where I hid it…you just don’t want anyone to see that bandaid and dental floss thing you call a bikini!”
“Hey, no better way to avoid tan lines than to minimize the coverage! You saying the horizontal stripes make me look fat?” I laughed, because I knew I wasn’t fat. We had both dieted for weeks planning for this trip.
“No one is looking at the stripes while you’re wearing that! Why didn’t you wear the new Blueberry bikinis we picked up before we left?” Grace thrusts out her chest as she made a duck face at the camera.
I laughed, “Cuz that’s for a beach party, not the pool or laying out.”
“Pffft, I’ll wear it wherever I want, ya bitch!” Grace snapped another picture and tossed the selfie stick aside.
“Yes, ma’am, now pass me that vodka will ya?” I was thirsty and ready to get drunk.
“We getting plastered to do voiceovers for porn, Sady?” Grace couldn’t help but giggle.
“Naturally, how else will we convince the grocery delivery guy to plow us on the kitchen counter?” Sady burst into giggles as she took a long swig from the bottle and passed it to Grace.
Needless to say, we got so drunk we barely made it back to our room and passed out. No porn voice overs and luckily no sunburns. Tomorrow we pack up and hit the road again, eventually we’ll see real grass again! So, stay tuned for part 4…God only knows what we’ll encounter next.

Grace & Sady Road Trip-Motel (pt 2)

Part 2 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

Grace and I have been driving for a while. We’ve taken turns at the wheel. We’ve flashed truckers. We’ve sang our hearts out. We’ve exhausted ourselves, but we finally found a little motel out in the middle of nowhere.
now what

Sady bursts into giggles as they get out of the car, pointing at the huge amenity sign right out front, “Look, Grace, they have porn!”
“Like I want to watch porn with YOU!” she laughs.
“Grace, look around, you think they have cable way out here? We can turn off the sound and make our own monologue! It’ll be hilarious, ” Sady chuckled to herself, remembering the last time they watched porn together, along with their good friend, Tracy.
“Ok, yeah, we can do that. I wonder if they have any place to eat around here,” she looks around and hangs her head, “Not looking so good. At least we still have some snacks from the gas station.”
She reaches into the car. I assume she’s grabbing a snack or her purse…I turn to walk towards the office to get us a room. I turn my head just in time to see her running towards me…

we're here

…with a magic wand in her hand! She’s coming towards me with it, “Grace! WTF are you doing….get that thing away from me!”
Grace is just laughing as she charges at me with her wireless wand just a buzzing, “Awww, Sady, don’t be scared, didn’t you get one of these when you got your Bound Box?”
“Yes, but I didn’t bring it on the trip, ya cunt!”
She chased me all the way around the sign and into the office with that thing buzzing. *laughs*
As we’re paying for the room, Grace asked the clerk if they have any place to eat or buy booze nearby. Not surprisingly the answer was no, but they did have a vending machine in the office and the manager, a pervy looking old man,  offered us a bottle of vodka and pointed out the window, “We’ve got complimentary adult movies and a pool if you ladies get too hot.” He chuckled to himself as Grace tried to hide the wand behind her back at this point, but I’m quite sure he saw it.
We took the vodka and giggled. Grace had managed to force the narrow end of the wand into her back pocket. As Grace grabbed some snacks from the machine, I reached forward and hit the button to make it start buzzing against her ass. We bursts into giggles and ran from the office with snacks and her buzzing wand in tow.
“Ya bitch,” she yells as I race to the car and grab our bags.
We were too exhausted to do much of anything that night, but planned to take a swim before hitting the road again the next day….

 

get away from me

To AraCakes with Love

I grew up listening to my mom telling stories about hanging out at the soda fountain at the pharmacy after school. The closest thing I had to that was my last two years of high school, we’d all park at Corner Grocery, which was really a Texaco station, get drunk and dance in the gravel parking lot. The owners were super cool and didn’t mind us being there as we bought drinks, snacks, cigarettes, and occasionally talked someone into buying us alcohol. Plus, the store isn’t likely to get robbed with a group of teens hanging out next to it. Those were good times, but I always wondered what it must have been like to sit on a stool at an actual soda fountain. God knows with the heat in my part of the world, I’d love to sit in a sweet shop with a good old fashioned milk shake right about now. We had a really cute little shop for a while called Just Desserts where you’d get a piece of cake the size of your head and pay about $6usd for it, but it was literally too rich for my blood. That’s the problem I find with most American desserts anyway, too sweet. I grew up on European desserts and as decadent as they looked, they were the perfect balance of flavors without being too sweet.
So, anyway, you might be wondering about the title and what that has to do with what I’ve written. Well, I’ll tell you, absolutely nothing. This post is just a little wink to Miss AraCakes, a wonderful and shy friend of mine that is the only one that gets away with calling me Cupcake. I know by writing that you’ll all try it now and I’m warning you, the nickname is reserved for Ara only, so when I ignore you…you’ll know why, cuz you fuckers ain’t gonna steal her special pet name for me! *sticks her tongue out*

These Chains

“Even in these chains, you can’t stop me.
Even in these chains, you can’t stop me!”
In This Moment Big Bad Wolf

The song I quoted above is one of my all time favorite songs and the moment I heard it I recognized the struggle with myself in the lyrics. I often find myself wrapped in the chains of circumstances. Too many times those chains of my own. The fight that goes on in my head with myself is a constant one. Perhaps the voice inside me that belittles me at every turn, the one that abuses me mentally and emotionally, the one that urges me towards death and poor choices…perhaps that’s the part of me that was trained to believe I was nothing but entertainment by my father. Perhaps not. Its quite possible that we all have an inner voice that criticizes our every move. That voice of doubt…of worthlessness…our own worst critic….maybe we all have that voice.
I can’t know how loud other people’s ugly little voices yell or scream, but I know that mine can be deafening. However, I can yell back at them just as loud…at times. The last year and a half have lent so much strength to that hateful voice that I’ve had to lean on friends and medications to keep my head afloat. I teetered on a very fine line between life and death, but now? Now, I am fighting back. I’m standing up and I’m breaking those chains, because I will not be my worst enemy anymore. To that awful voice inside my head, I scream, “Even in these chains, you can’t stop me!”
