  1. You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side

    Playcat, Iona Mink, Johnny Barleycorn, kissmyshadestoo, sad veiled bride, Chip, troubleluvsme, Tibby, Robby, Davie, Peterb, Uncleskinny, fenner, Drew, 123xyz, Steve Croce, LazyDyke, sweetness522... you guys make Solo fun and interesting. Thanks so much for your fun, informative, and insightful posts. Love you guys. Lots of other cool people here as well who don't post much. But if you are on my friend's list, then you are fine by me. And you may be fine by me, even if you are not on that...
  2. Plenty of Fishermen

    OK. Bear with me. I have not lost my mind. I really haven't. I can see Davie rolling his eyes. So, Ben wrote back. Says he actually only met one of Kent's ex subs. (Backstory: here & here) He exaggerated to inflate his ego. What else has he inflated? He says he didn't meet her on OKC, but rather, at another site called Plenty of Fish. Heard of it, but never visited the site. Three minutes later, I'm checking out some profiles. No need to sign up first like you do at some of the other...
  3. Pet Troll

    *Update wit screenshots mid-post. ** Update 4/28/2014 near bottom of post. Dear Pet Troll, Who are you? Let me ponder it while I listen to this classic. So then... Who are you? Who, who, who, who? Well, who are you? I really wanna know. Tell me, who are you? 'Cause I really wanna know. *4/18/2014 ~ Pet Troll is Morrithey. Or read this post. One of his many user names... PT hates me because my ex posted his address in the chatroom back in 2005 after he had posted our...
  4. Pretty Certain It's Happening

    Tucson/Puerto Pensaco, Mexico trip August 13-17. Tampa FL trip October 14-20. Woo-hoo. Can't wait.
  5. Is My Vegan Challenge About Control?

    Well of course my vegan challenge is about control. What diet is not about control? Show me a vegan or vegetarian that does not structure his or her diet to get a measure of control over what they consume and I will give you an all-expense-paid trip to Jupiter. Whether one is abstaining from meat, dairy, or fat or increasing protein, there is a goal in mind. Maybe one is eating more ethically, healthily, or to lose weight... or to gain body mass, as body builders are wont to do. All...
  6. True Love

    Just got home and checked my email. This was in my inbox. I have the best mom ever. To be loved and cherished by a person who is so amazing is truly a gift.
  7. OKStupid

    Wow. OK. So I am not off to a great start. OKCupid could just as easily be called OKStupid at this point. Or maybe I should just say OKStupid, in reference to myself—as in what were you thinking, silly girl? Let's just say I have not exactly come across the cream of the crop. Or any crop worth harvesting at all. But being the open minded, fun-loving, and inquisitive person that I am, I have answered all messages and been very generous with my time and replies. Oh don't ask why. I really...
  8. Success is the Only Revenge I Seek

    I am not superstitious and I certainly think Karma is bunk. But something makes me hesitate shouting at the top of my lungs, "life is good," out of fear that I will jinx myself—that the hubris police will come cracking down and put me back in my miserable place. Maybe I am simply not used to success. It feels different. I feel vulnerable. Could I lose it all in a moment's notice? I should feel I deserve this chance at greatness. Haven't I suffered enough? I don't want to be a victim...
  9. Dreaming of Red

    Waiting for my tomatoes to turn red is like watching paint dry—it seems to be taking forever. Sid has over thirty tomatoes. Penny has over forty. I can't even count them all. I've tried but I lose track. There are so many clustered together. But they are all green. Some are quite large. Looks like they are full size. As soon as they start to get a little orangeish at the bottom they are good to go. It usually takes about seven days for them to fully ripen on the vine once they start. I...
  10. So Sick of Self

    Oh yeah... Mardy Bum
  11. Conspicuous Candy

    In the United States, consumerism and holidays go hand in hand. And nothing displays conspicuous consumption better than the candy isles at large retail chains during the preceding weeks before CERTAIN upcoming holidays. Certain being the key word here. Because, as I will argue, not all holidays in celebration make ritual the consumption or gift giving of candy. Oh no, some blatantly deny these sweet treats to be in attendance. So who are the bouncers at the holiday doors? And what are the...
  12. The Unanswered Moz Questions

    There is a new Moz book being released in May that claims to have the answers to all my questions. Preposterous. Think it will answer these? When was the last time Moz ate cheese? Does Moz still wear leather shoes? Does he read the forums at Morrissey-Solo? What does he think of the phrase cheese is murder? Did Moz have a crush on Johnny? Did he sleep with Johnny? Is Morrissey really bi? Is Damon bi? Did Moz sleep with Tina? What does Tina think about the less than flattering...
  13. OKWow

    So, last night after I got home from work I spent the next few hours chatting with various men on OKCupid. Two days earlier, I decided to give the site a try. I am great at meeting men online. Chatting, emailing are my forte. But meeting them at work or around town has been more challenging when one lives in such a small city. But I DO want to get to know men who live within an hour's drive. So it was either Match.com or OKCupid.com. Match charges to chat. And I didn't want to fork out...

  15. Inflated Ego

    Hahaha. Was just looking at my Amazon page and noticed that my print book which sells for $4.99 new, is available used, for the bargain bin price of $43.58 + $3.99 shipping. Who bought my book and is now trying to turn a profit on it? Wait, could it be a family member trying to sell the free copy they received from me? Hmm. Do I have any family members living in Georgia? Nope. Another mystery. So many mysteries, so little time.
