Get a Chatroom!

I’m all for a little PDA.  I’ll admit I’m a hand holder, a cuddler, always wanting to have some contact with my guy even in public.  However, I stopped hardcore making out in front of people when I was 17 (ok, drunk make out sessions in bars not withstanding). 

But you know what really grinds my grits? this new form of PDA, electronic PDA or e-PDA if you will.  Specifically, Facebook e-PDA.  I just don’t get it.  Why do I need to read such things as:

Last night was amazing baby, my bed feels so empty without you! 😉

Um, helloooo?  I don’t need a visual of the escapades that took place in your bed last night.. I especially don’t need to be seeing such things on my cousin’s or Aunt Sue’s wall.  Okay, maybe I’ve never seen such a scandalous thing on an Aunt’s wall but I feel like it’s only a matter of time!

Furthermore, why do couples need to confess their love for all the world to see via each others facebook walls. 

Hi Sweetheart!! I just wanted to say you are the most amazing boyfriend ever.  You really truly are the very best my little sunshine!  My life was not complete until you came into it.  I’m never ever ever letting you go pumpkin.  I love you so much and I miss you soo much. KISSSSSSSESSSSS! XOXOXOXO

Even if I was in love, I would not write this sort of message nor would I want someone to write this to me via a public forum like facebook.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for being mushy gushy sometimes through texts or emails, in fact, I love sending and receiving cutesy messages, just not on my Facebook wall for all my friends and family to see. 

Just like I learned that making out in public after a certain age was somewhat distasteful, I feel like leaving such messages on facebook walls is now the equivalent of hardcore making out in a crowded room.

It just comes off as a cry for attention to me.  All “look at how in love and happy I am.  Everyone be jealous of me.”  But it doesn’t make me jealous, it usually just makes me nauseous.  I don’t need to know your pet names for each other:

Babycakes
Shnookie
Wifey
Hubby
Punkin
Muffin
Sugar
Daddy Big One

Please, enough is enough!

Just like I’m all for a little real life PDA, I can be all for a little e-PDA.  A simple “I miss you” “I love you” “Can’t wait to see you”  I find these all perfectly acceptable.  Just like a peck on the lips or holding hands is acceptable.  My issue is that people are hardcore making out on Facebook walls and all I have to say is…

A Smorgasbord of Information :)

Hello, lovahs.. how are you?  I actually just recovered this post from last night which I typed out twice and thought I lost both times.  In reality, the reason I couldn’t locate it in my drafts was because I went to create a new PAGE instead of a new POST… total blonde moment. 🙂

Anyways, right after I typed a sentence about how my Dad fixed my laptop, I lifted up my laptop only to hear.. CRACK…

Oh damn, the whole right side of the monitor part broke away from the keyboard (try to picture that for a minute, it’s NOT GOOD PEOPLE!)  I have it semi fixed now but ugh, just my luck.  I’m buying a new laptop and giving this one to my parents and Dad will NOT be pleased about this.

Anyways, hi, how are you?  It’s been awhile.

I am officially ending my bloggy hiatus.  At first I stopped writing when I was sort of dating Work Spouse, which was short lived.  Without going into detail right now, he ended up disappointing me like most guys do and it really did hit a nerve.  But I found myself not wanting to write about it.  I didn’t want to sound like a broken record complaining about my latest failed dating disaster.

So, I stopped writing and processed things on my own.

Which lead to where I’m at right now, which is content… no, better than content, I’m happy.  And I mean it.  I realized there are many things I need to work on before I’m ready to be in a relationship and so I’m focusing 100% on me and I gotta say, it feels pretty damn good.

You know what else feels good?  Sharing some tidbits so without further ado I’m bringing back Tidbit Tuesdays:

  • I’ve been battling with insomnia lately.  Actually, I went to California a week and a half ago and I think my body just never really adjusted back to East Coast time.  It’s super frustrating but LA was awesome!
  • I ran into Speidi on the street in Santa Monica!  I actually wanted to go up to the dastardly bastard with the flesh colored beard and tell him I thought he was a douche but I kept myself in check.  I bet some people really do things like that to them though.
  • My 14 yr old self’s dream came true when I found myself at the same bar as this guy…

  • Yes, that is my favorite member of NSYNC JC Chasez, heh.  However, my friends refused to allow me to go over and talk to him.  I should have just done it anyway!  Since when do I listen to them anyways.
  • Oh, which reminds me,  I also ran into Perez Hilton in AC about a month ago.  I’ve been quite the celebustalker, huh?  They told me not to talk to him either but I didn’t listen.  I moseyed on over to him and told him I read his blog all the time when I’m at work and I don’t feel like doing work… (shhh, its a secret)  Btw, Perez is awesome, he was so nice.
  • While in LA, I held a real Oscar (they are HEAVY!)  and met an Oscar winner.
  • I also had a gay man lick up his drink off my leg and then bite it.  I told Banana if I didn’t know better I would have thought he wanted me, heh.

Now, go on and share a tidbit or two with me!  I missed you guys!

For the First Time in a Long Time…

I feel happy being completely on my own…

I have things I want to accomplish and a plan to get them done…

The Ex doesn’t seem to have the same hold over me…

I see situations and people for exactly who they truly are…

I realize that I have issues I need to work out before I can be in a healthy relationship..

I am trying to focus on the positive rather than the things my life is lacking…

I am focused on making myself happy rather than looking for happiness in someone else…

I am looking for the positive perspective in every situation…

I really want to write and share with my blog friends again. 🙂

Some Words to Live By

For what it’s worth, it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit… start whenever you want… you can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that stop you. I hope you feel things that you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life that you’re proud of and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

~The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

If you haven’t noticed I’m on a bit of a blogging hiatus but I really wanted to share this quote.  I’ve been feeling lost lately and this quote inspired me.  It’s a beautiful thing that we do have the power to change our life and ourself, if we truly want to. 

I’ll be back when I get my new laptop.  Hope everyone is well. xo
