I know you hate me for back-posting; but it’s tough love…really. This week became a little busy for me so I had only had time to publish my featurette because it’s all saved as draft posts. Hopefully things will be calm today at lunch and I can finish this post and dish out a few more.

Cheers

I’ve been gambling

I had Friday off last week and I spent it with my parents…at the casino! Who needs to go to church on Good Friday when you can go the the “other” church: the casino. After all there are a few prayers said, you are kinda donating to someone and if you lose your butt you could have to go on a pilgrimage to find food…money. Okay, maybe you’ll just be more thankful. Whatever! Anyway…you sorta have a religious experience.

I ended up losing a few dollars here and there; nothing to complain about. I was there for 13 hours; 9 of which I was playing poker. Can you say “addict”? Good! I am addicted to poker like noooo tomorrow. A have a few friends that play and there are about 3 house games a week I can play in on a regular basis. So far in house games I am up $5 so I can’t complain. As for the casino I am out a little more then $5…okay a little more then $50. :) I’ll have an actual story to tell after I go again this weekend. Last weekend’s story wasn’t too exciting. Blah…no really I’m not bitter.

What else?

Well I did pick up my tickets for Michael Buble two weeks ago. Did I get good seats you ask? Yes I did; 6th row center! Woohoo!! Needless to say I am pretty pumped about that.

I think I am going to a few mini-shows for Tamara Bedricky next month. She is playing at Borders then in May she is playing a big show at The Magic Bag (Ferndale, MI)…needless to say my butt will be there! If you have been reading my blog for a bit you know that I love her music and I highly recommend you buy her CD. In fact, I might start charging admission to read my blog; the fee being a prof of purchase from her CD. Okay, that’s overboard…but really check her out. She’s been on tour to random places around the US; usually small shows -but listed on her website. If she’s in your area take a peek. :)

Nothing bad, nothing nutty…just typical life stuff for now.

And now a few random quotes I found on Match.com yesterday that I thought were too damn funny.

Weird…when I post the quotes the text gets all messy in my blog. Sooo just go to the link and read at your leisure! :)

Confession Wednesday #6

I love cartoons.

I don’t wake up at 5 am on Saturday morning anymore…hell I don’t wake up before 7am unless there is a fire…but I still have a few favorites that I hate to miss. Right now my favorite is Teen Titans. If you have cartoon network you can watch it weekdays and new episodes are on weekends. There is one character that I totally love (no not that way): Raven. She has powers that run off her emotions; so she comes off as a Goth kinda depressed adolescent. She researches magic and history books for spells and such…she has to meditate and try to keep herself in check otherwise her emotions go crazy and her powers are not under control. For some reason I fell like I can empathize with her to a point…after all I don’t have powers and I’m not a woman…hell I’m not a cartoon either. Okay so I have no idea how I can empathize with her, but I do. So I want this figurine of Raven, but it’s $90!! Anyone want to buy it for me?

Cartoons feel like they recharge my inner child and for me that is important. My imagination and creativity spawn from my inner child. I feel like too many people lose their inner child as they grow up; only thinking that the only way to get it back is to have kids. You don’t need kids to nurture your inner child…art, books, movies, cartoons, laughter and a good amount of time thinking about things you never thought about help bring you back to those early years.

As I recall previous post, I snipped a quote from a book that talks about this…

“Everybody has the ability to free associate, but society tends to frown on active fantasies. Beyond a certain age, we stop playing games, ‘let’s pretend’, ‘what if,’ and all that. It goes on in your head anyway, but at some point you start to feel guilty. You know, you listen to a symphony and imagine that you’re the conductor, and there you are, conducting like crazy, but then you get to be a grown man, and you say, ‘Gee, I’d hate for anybody to know that I’m pretending I’m conducting the symphony.’ But that kind of fantasy life is the real key to problem solving at every level. It’s certainly the primary tool for problem solving in art, whether it’s painting or dancing or choreography or directing films or writing scripts or writing novels or whatever.” Creative problem solving is a form of innovative learning.

Closing comment: I don’t want to grow up I’m a toys r us kid.

Scorpio – InfoSpace

Wait, what? Tough times…does that count: being a little hung over this morning, still crabby from work yesterday, realizing you f-ed up something related to a purchase for work, realizing you have to build the largest Erector(TM) set you have ever seen…and you can’t focus today, wishing you were still asleep, working on the wrong project yesterday by accident, sending out an email with date specific data where the data was correct but the date was not, wondering if you forgot to pay a bill? I hope so.

Hopefully no one comes to me today looking for advice or a shoulder to cry on because I SOOOoooo do not have the patience for it today.

“If anyone can deal with tough times, it’s you. So when a dear one mentions a last-minute problem that’s really got them floored, you’ll do for them what you’d do for yourself under similar circumstances: You’ll help them come up with possible solutions, and remind them that the unexpected detour around an obstacle often turns out to be better than the original path itself.”
