It's been a long time!

I know, I know! Where has she been?
Well, I went to St. Louis....and I've been really, really busy.
My daughter and I traveled by car. We rented a new Ford Five Hundred. I loved the car!
Kinda sporty...
Had a wonderful time! My boyfriend was there and we did a lot of things together.
My daughter had her 'nose out of joint', but did get over it.
I'll post more tomorrow about the things we did while we were there.
Amazing things!
Oh, oh!!! I saw a Harrier!!! Wow!!!
Hope that everyone is having a fantastic summer!
Talk soon!

Blues Cruise in St. Louis

One of the Travel sites for St. Louis says the following:

It’s said that music stirs men’s souls. Get ready to be both shaken and stirred in St. Louis. Cuddle in our cozy blues music clubs or huddle at a candlelit table where America’s greatest jazz stylists will sing just for you. Discover the world-renowned Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, take in a show at the acoustically perfect Sheldon Concert Hall or visit the critically acclaimed Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. Dance to Hip-Hop in the clubs along Washington Avenue or grab a spot for two on the floor of a concert club. Whatever your personal musical taste, St. Louis will help you write your own love song.

Now I want to listen to the music. Music moves my heart and my soul.

At the Gateway Arch you can enjoy live blues as you cruise the river-every Thursday night from June 2 to October 27. Boarding begins at 8:00 pm, with departure at 8:30 pm and return at 11:00 pm. Cash bar available.

Can you say ROAD TRIP!!!

I'm so excited. My daughter and I did a road trip to Canada last year to visit our family. This year we're going to St. Louis!!

I'm doing the smart thing - I'm renting a car with a NeverLost system. It's a GPS navigational system that's awesome! I had one in the car in Chicago and I felt so at ease. I wasn't afraid of getting lost. It was awesome having someone tell me where to go!!

I've come across so many things to do in St. Louis. I'll expand on this as the day goes on...

Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle

Also, in the Museum of Science and Industry is housed a famous exhibit donated by Colleen Moore. This doll house is 9 square feet in size and has working electricity and plumbing!

The Fairy Castle was completed in 1935 and the price tag for this 8'7" x 8'2" x 7'7" foot palace containing over 2000 miniatures was nearly $500,000.

I still say that it was too good for Barbie!

Chicago Museum of Science and Industry

I've been neglecting my postings I know.
This one is so interesting.

While in Chicago with my boyfriend we went to the Museum of Science and Industry. We also visited the Body Worlds exhibit. Wow! They use a process called Plastination. Plastination is the process in which a body's fat and fluids are replaced, preserving it for viewing. Don't be deceived! These bodies are real specimens! They aren't like plastic models of cars or ships...they are real, once alive, human beings! Go take a look!

The Museum is also the home to a REAL 727. Yes! An airplane! I was in awe walking around the building. Amongst the plane and the trains I was moved! These huge vehicles that carry a lot of people quickly and they were there in the same building for us to gawk over. Amazing! I highly recommend seeing the displays.

Songs and Music

And one that crossed my path tonight.
Lyrics seem to stick in my head.
I get so caught up in music and then associate it
with events in my life.

Like this one tonight:

"Mr Brightside" by the Killers

I'm coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head
But she’s touching his—chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go
I just can’t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside
I’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head
But she’s touching his—chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go
Cause I just can’t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside
I never...I never...I never...I never...

Masturbation

This story is just awesome!!
  • Nam's Masturbation Story


  • Rosie Palm and her 5 sisters!
    What about the myth that Green Day sings about?

    "Bite my lip and close my eyes
    Take me away to paradise
    I'm so damn bored
    I'm going blind
    And loneliness has to suffice
    Bite my lip and close my eyes
    I was slipping away to paradise
    Some say,"Quit or I'll go blind."
    But it's just a myth"

    That's me...slippin away to paradise...
    Mutual masturbation...now there's a whole new ballgame!!

    That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!!

    This Guy is Smart, I tell you!!

    Thought that I would post this afternoon because...

    I really didn't think that someone would guess. The person who is reading this will know what I'm talking about. I didn't think that you or anyone would put 2 and 2 together with the 2 sites.

    You are so amazing!! Just like your site!
    Keep up the great blogging! I'm all eyes!!

    Thanks for making me laugh!

    Dating...Sounds Scary!

    Okay, so tonight I'm thinking that my friends are probably right, but I'm so wishy washy...
    Maybe I should start dating again.
    I mean don't get me wrong. It's fun going out with them and dancing and someone buying drinks, but...
    I don't know that I'm out of that teasing stage yet or not and I don't think that I really want to have a relationship with someone other than my boyfriend.

    How do you know?
    How do you know if the next step is the right one?

    I mean I'm not looking for a permanent 'you can move in with me' type of relationship.
    I've done two of those. Actually, I've done two of those incorrectly. I don't think that I could ever get it right. Probably because I was meant to have a lover...not a husband!

    I miss having someone snuggle up close to me at night. I miss reaching out to touch 'him' and finding my pillow instead. I miss waking in the night and making love...or fucking

    ...I just miss...

    Fucked up day

    I'm so busy at work. I think that I'm losing it...

    I need time for me!
    my kids are complaining that I don't spend enough time with them
    they both said that they're tired of me trying to be their friend instead of their mother. Funny, I don't see it that way. Am I wrong? Fuck! I thought that life would get easier the older I got.

    I need to relax. Put on some music and think about how I can repair this...
    Yeah that's me! The fixer. I wish that I could fix everything. Such is life I guess! Where's the rewind button? Or the fast forward for all that matters.

    I need some loving!!

    Who Wants to Know More?

    That reminds me of the gum commercial. Who wants gum? I do! I do! Lame...

    Well tonight I've had the drink of choice...a margarita. I mean a quality margarita. Christine makes the ultimate BEST! I'm talking margaritas!!

    What's that song? "You promised me heaven but put me through hell!" Never, not after one or three of my margaritas!!

    So...the margarita:

    Don't use a margarita glass - it's not big enough! Use a tall drinking glass.
    Fill half way with ice (us Canadians don't like a lot of COLD ice, the weather is cold enough...that's why Canadians make great lovers...we like it HOT!!)
    Pour half the glass full with tequila
    Add enough margarita mix to fill the glass 3/4 full
    Then add some Rose's lime juice
    Then add a shot of triple sec.

    I think that it's awesome...Well the 2 that I've had tonight were supreme..

    To be continued.....

    To give the address or not to give the address!

    Do you think that's what Shakespeare meant?
    Him and I were actually born on the same day, but that doesn't mean that I have his writing talent. Just read on and you'll see!

    Tonight I told my friend about this blog. I wasn't sure that I wanted to give out the address. Now as I write, I figure, what the hell! What is said, is said. There's no rewind here! Or maybe I'm just not as technically savvy as I had originally thought!

    And the saga conintues!!

    I hear my Mother's voice!

    Saying "Candy is dandy, but liquour is quicker!"
    or this one "Just remember that gin is a panty remover!"
    How bizarre! How bizarre! Who would know that I would be
    drinking gin! And the party would end up back at my place.

    I think that I did something totally stupid. I usually don't
    do dumb things like that. I haven't allowed myself to open up to
    another person in a very long time. I'm very guarded and I really
    don't want to get involved in another relationship. I suck at
    relationships. And that's another thing that my mother would tell you. She doesn't think that I mix well in a marriage. I'm thinking that she's right. I love being on my own.

    So...what did I do? Funny you should ask. Last night the party did come back to my place. Along with Julia...who had to drive me home. I sent an email to a friend of mine and said some really dumb things. Oh well...if he really knows me...he's going to know that I had a lot too many to drink.

    He's the first guy that I've felt comfortable about in a long time. I told my mom about him...she's so funny. Now what she said is probably the topic of another entry.

    Queen of TMI

    I think that I should be dubbed the Queen of TMI.I think of my two co-workers as my sounding board. Funny, they don't share the excitement! Hence the name Queen of TMI.That's me...always giving out too much information. Isn't that how you start a conversation, though? Give too much information and then people comment on it. Now I have to wonder...hmmm...too much information on my blog - should I or shouldn't I? Is that the same thing as does she or doesn't she? You know...only her hairdresser knows for sure! Well, as a friend of mine has said " How can you tell if the carpet matches the drapes when there's hardwood floors?"

    TMI...I think not!!
