I love to read. So simple of a thing to say but not everyone is fortunate enough to have the chance or ability to learn. I'm thankful that I grew up in a place where I could get a decent education.

I am blessed to read as many dirty books as I want. :) Ok so I DO read stuff besides Jennifer Cruise and Tami Hoag. Like Stephen King and Dean Koontz. And about a gazillion crime thriller suspense books. Every once in a while I make myself read a classic or something that's supposed to expand my horizons. I guilt myself into it every time but I'm never really disappointed.

Last night C. went out with the boys to play pool and I stayed home just so I could read for about 4 hours strait. MMMmmmmm Love it. Summer time I'm really busy with work but winter brings those days when I can immerse myself in a book and finish it all in one day. LOVE THAT!!

I love my best friend Jaime. We met in kindergarten and she moved away but years later she came back and ever since - she's my #1.

She has been the ONE constant in my life. Troubles with Parents? There. Every shit ass relationship and man that came and went? There. Cars break, hearts break, family breaks, people betray, they leave. Jaime? There. She will be there when we're all old and craggy and still thinkin we're cool. And even though she'll think I'm a nutbag and she'll try not to, she'll laugh at me when I knock some young punk off his skateboard with my cane. Bitches stay off the sidewalk.

I hope and I think that C. and I have a forever love. I'm pretty damn sure of it in fact. But if something happens, god forbid, Jaime will be there. That's just the way it is. And I'll be there for her.

Jaybird, I miss you. Love you, Lindy.

I love when it's stupid hot outside and a big storm comes in off the lake and takes it from 85 degrees to 65 in like 10 minutes.

It gets dark really quick and everybody gets worked up and starts talking about tornadoes. I can always smell the rain coming. I like to go outside and feel the wind pick up and wait for it to start to pour.

Then it starts to lightning and I get my scardey cat ass back inside.

I love my parents so much. It grows even more the older I get. You'd think that after 20 and some years that it would level off. But it doesn't because the older I get the more I have in common with them. I understand them more and we can talk like friends.

I love it so much I'm welling up just writing about it.
I love the world of blogging.
I love this song -
It should be the first one that plays when you go to the website. If they change it it's the "Hey there Delilah" song.

I love the part that goes:

"Our friends would all make fun of us
and we'll just laugh along becuase we know
That none of them have felt this way."

Because that's how much I love my Mexican.
I'm Love when I leave my arctic office and get into my insane oven of a car. My cold (happy to be cool don't get me wrong) body feels like it's baking when I get in. It feels kind of like when you're in a tanning bed. For like 4 minutes it's really relaxing and it makes me feel good.


I read a lot of negativity on the web - and I love a lot of it. But sometimes after reading yahoo news, reading depressed bloggers (that I honestly feel for), dealing with everyday hell, work shit and blah blah blah, it brings me down. See? It's dragging you down just reading about it.

So yeah, this is going to be my little hippie ass place to come and be happy and write short little diddy's about things that I love or am grateful for. I'm going to try and make a personal goal to write at least one thing every day. Yes, and then I'll go hug a tree or something, so whatever.
