    The Aftermath

    Memo to self: Do not call, text or e-mail for the first 24 hours of a rift or major blowout because I can go from this priceless Kelis moment: rtsp://v1.cache8.c.youtube.com/CjULENy73wIaLAnJiPDPXgKV2BMYJCAkFEIGbXYtcmltSARSB3Jlc3VsdHNg8vnnvMCNmq5NDA==/0/0/0/video.3gp To having a Minnie type sensation thinking about all of the good: rtsp://v2.cache4.c.youtube.com/CjULENy73wIaLAk4ME-ewClNkBMYJCAkFEIGbXYtcmltSARSB3Jlc3VsdHNg8vnnvMCNmq5NDA==/0/0/0/video.3gp After bringing my friend up to speed on the latest developments with Rescue she said “he should know that he’s used 6 of his 9 lives”. No further explanation needed. I’ve only confirmed that Men are from some undiscovered planet and Women are from Earth. As Mel commented on the “Closed Mouths Don’t Get Fed” post, men are simple. When they say something, that’s normally what it…

    Closed Mouths Don’t Get Fed

    Finally, the end of the day is here! When you’ve got a lot of stuff on your mind, doesn’t the 8-hour work day seem more like a 28 hour flight sandwiched between two large people with no a/c and a bad itch down there?  Yep, pretty much like torture. So here’s part two of this morning’s surface street and bathroom post, “My Hump Wednesday” and while I’m still emotional and pissed off at this monkey wrench being thrown into the mix,  I probably shouldn’t make any decisions nor should I even be writing about this latest hangover in training but f!ck it, here it is.  Rescue’s actions are making me question my own…

    My Hump Wednesday

    I know you should never leave home angry but as I hope to catch more red lights than ever before to write this, I’m pretty upset. Okay, understatement. Pretty pissed. I’m trying to figure out what I’m so upset, replaying how I just stomped out of the house moments ago without the usual kiss and parting words for Rescue. Instead, a flip of the light switch and a really “firm” closing of the door was how I exited stage left.  I don’t think I’m able to do this. THIS meaning continuing to engage in this unrelationship with him, at least not on the current level. The morning started off well…

    What am I worried about?

    “I’m having a baby and am so excited, but how do I tell my fiance’ it isn’t his?” “Having sex with him bores me to DEATH. He has no idea what foreplay is or what it takes to turn me on. The very thought of him touching me makes me nauseous.  Still, I love him so.” “I don’t know what I’m going through right now, and while I still want the marriage, I have my needs. I know I should have stopped months ago, but playing out my fantasies with another man is what keeps me sane.” One story I just saw on another blog, one is actual and the…

    Ssh… I’ve got a secret

    In true procrastinating-blogger-who-makes-excuses-acting-like-posts-by-cell-are-impossible fashion, I’m going to apologize. Has it really been a week already? Damn, where are my nights and days going. Oh wait- I know. Rescue 911. Two songs popped into my head while I was on the treadmill a few moments ago. The first was “My Little Secret” by Xscape but no- that one doesn’t exactly fit. The second was “If Loving You Is Wrong” by Barbara Mandrell. I liked the lyrics a little better, not screaming “whore!!!” Like the Xscape song but still- not quite fitting to my situation. I’ve been contemplating for quite some time about sharing my philanderings with Rescue. He’s like my dirty…

    Busy Body

    Has it really been a week since I've posted?  I swear, there are probably five or six drafts stored in my phone and for whatever reason, I just hadn't forced my fingers to press "Send". Surely you realize that the absence of posts isn’t due to lack of material because you know, my dating life ALWAYS has a story. I’ve been a busy girl and there was one event in particular I had to prepare for which put my therapy to the back burner.  Only THE concert of THE most phenomenal entertainer ever:   Yep, I forked over a pretty penny to see this incredibly gifted artist and of course in…

    Week in Review

    I’m a little hungover (literally, not just from the dating scene), so I’ll try to make this brief.  Do you ever feel as if some of the things that happen in your life are part of some type of reality show or practical joke?  That’s pretty much how my week can be summed up and while it is not my intent for this to be a male bashing post, those winners accounted for many of my wow moments. In case anyone is wondering (still) why I’m single, allow me to provide a few examples of the type crap I had to ensure this week alone: Monday – Rescue 911 isn’t talked about all…
