Life, Family

  1. Something Impulsive

    I just heard this song for the fist time less than an hour ago. Actually I just learned of this band, Future Islands, as well. Check out this video that was posted on Solo... Seasons (Waiting on You) Then I bought their new album, Singles, online. It's fantastic! Then... I bought tickets to see them in Phoenix on April 20th. Whoo-hoo! ^^^ Look how cheap those tickets were! My son has no idea he is going with me. He is still sleeping. Too early to call. He lives right around...
  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. What a Crock

    Okay, by now, you must be sick of all the OKCupid stuff. So I am talking about that site, yet again, with some trepidation. It may be the last time. But I can't make any promises. Here it is. I just got an email from the site informing me that... you might want to sit down for this... You read that correctly. It has been determined that I am now considered to be an attractive member. And thus will now be matched with other 'attractive' members. No more Doms, Bens, or dogs? Just good...
  4. OKCrazy

    Oh my gawd. Last night, right before I was about to crawl into bed, I got a message from 'Ben' on OKCupid. He and I had had a week-long series of exchanges. Nice enough guy. Too much baggage. Still married, yet separated—only since December, though. Sorry bud, you are clearly on the rebound. Give it time. You need to heal. Learn. Regroup. Moving to the next thing too soon, will surely have you repeating the same mistakes. Anyhow, so I last had contact with him about a week ago, until last...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. He Said I Am Stoic

    He said I am stoic, rarely if ever showing my emotions. Funny, I always thought that I wore my heart on my sleeve. Maybe, just maybe, he meant that I don't let them see me sweat. This could be true, I suppose. I guess my coat of armor is solid and thick—these days. Or, perhaps it always was. Could be that I was born to do battle—genetically equipped with the traits to tackle crisis after crisis, heartbreak after heartbreak, and survive it all. Even thrive on hardship. On this journey...
  8. Without Suffering

    Pain motivates us to act. Suffering, physically and/or emotionally, compels me to write. This is why I just don't have much to say lately. I feel incredibly happy and content. Plus, I have had other outlets to express myself besides my blog. I am not living inside my head so much these days, but rather sharing my thoughts and feelings with others. A nice change. Here is to friendship. Listening to the new Beck album, Morning Phase.
  9. We Are All Editors

    I have two blog entries that are hidden from view. Not really on purpose though. They are private because once a post is saved as a draft it cannot be deleted. It will forever take up space on davidt's servers. Sure I can change the title and delete the contents, but there will always be a marker there. In these two hidden posts, the titles are still the same. And the contents are unaltered. I have not made them public for various reasons. One was a poem from many months ago. I felt it...
  10. Stroke Me, Stroke Me

    Selfies. Match.com profiles. Forum comments. What do they all have in common? They are all about feedback—means to obtain sustenance for starving egos. And aren't we all starving, or at least hungry to some degree? Of course we are. Basic human psychology. The Internet is a wonderful arena to witness this phenomena manifested in full force. Match.com profiles. Why do we create them? Maybe we want to meet someone. Or maybe we just want to get winks—little nods of approval that reassure...
  11. 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...
  12. Shifting Gears

    So much negativity. Some people can bring out the worst in me. Others can bring out the best. Women. They can be tough nuts to crack. Perhaps the stereotype of them being petty, catty, jealous, envious, and competitive with one another has some merit. As has been demonstrated here on Solo. Numerous times. I like women. I do. But I seem to become the target of their wrath, for some reason. Perhaps for those reasons previously mentioned. Whatever the case may be, I find this disheartening....
  13. An Iron Fist Inside a Velvet Glove

    See Part II. Hand In Glove—Leslie—does the world revolve around you, my dear? Are all of my blog posts about you? Are ANY of them about you? Do you think you mean that much to me? You don't. And even though you seem to think I have been talking about you in my blog, I have not. All my posts, in fact, are about other people—people I DO interact with on the forums. You are invisible in the forums. You hardly post. You are a non-entity. You have no positive impact or negative one. That you...
