Any way, when I went to the Neo website...I saw that my blog was one of Lil Neo's faves...
MY BLOG!!!!
I have no clue if it was linked to mine to smoochie me...or if its a real fave...but if its a real fave then THANK YOU..
I am me...in my Blog I am me, 100% all of the time...
And the slow gentle creation of this blog and how it looks has been a work of love and time and art.
I'm still thinking and pondering on its appearance, along with my thoughts.
When I blog, dear blog faithful, its with utter and total honesty..and its me...
Totally me.
So if Lil Neo likes it...thats the biggest kudo I've gotten..lol
I have only one faithful commentator, and thats Rhapsody....
I know plenty of folks read faithfully, but never comment....
Thats cool...but it was SUPER cool to be a fave on Neo.com
Thanks Lil Neo

WELL......

Lil ones Christmas feast was awesome. She is a fantastic cook, just like her dad.
I am sitting here just now, relaxing after a hard work out at the gym, and then cleaning the dishes up, laundry and such.
I am putting a lot more effort into the workouts due to my impending visit with Marc.
I may be fat, but I want to be as hard and firm as I can be under the curves..lol.
I have started doing the eliptical again, thirty mins again today, and as I get back into better aerobic condition I'll add the stair climber for a mix up of workouts.
I feel so much better when I'm working out regularly, and I have Lil one to thank, because she joined the gym she insisted we go several times, and then I've continued on days when she can't go, like today.

We are acting like a pair of lovesick teenagers, we both agree we are, and both agree its fantastic...
At our age too...lol...what a precious feeling.

Merry Christmas from The Tropics

Todays weather is icky...its 77 degrees right now with humidity of 92%!!!!!!
I have the air cranked up cooler than usual, because if we are going to be cooking in an hr or so, I need cool air!!!
The turkey is in the oven, and it is a pre-stuffed Butterball, I just hope the stuffing is good, but if not? Oh well. I have plenty of other stuff to eat with it.
Veggies, potatoes that Lil one is making from scratch, and Poppin' fresh dinner rolls.
Its the first ever complete holiday meal that I've attempted including making a turkey.
So keep your fingers crossed for me that it will be good.
I'll update later.
MERRY CHRISTMAS BLOG FAITHFUL!

I only want to be with you


Mary Isabel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien
BORN: April 16, 1939, Hampstead, London, England
DIED: March 2, 1999

Britain's greatest pop diva,
Dusty Springfield was also the
finest white soul singer of her era, a performer of
remarkable emotional resonance whose body of work spans the
decades and their attendant musical transformations with a
consistency and purity unmatched by any of her
contemporaries; though a camp icon of glamourous excess in
her towering beehive hairdo and panda-eye black mascara,
the sultry intimacy and heartbreaking urgency of
Springfield's voice transcended image and fashion,
embracing everything from lushly-orchestrated pop to gritty
R&B to disco with unparalleled sophistication and depth.

The above describes her to a "T"
And this is one of my fave songs of hers...and one I thought of most of the last hour when thinking of Marcus tonite.
Its Christmas Eve, and I want nothing more than to be with him.
Fitting then eh?

I only want to be with you, as performed by Dusty Springfield

I don't know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never want to let you go
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
It happens to be true
I only want to be with you

It doesn't matter where you go or what you do
I want to spend each moment of the day with you
Oh, look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It's crazy but it's true
I only want to be with you

You stopped and smiled at me
And asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Now now hear me tell it
I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
No matter what you do
I only want to be with you

Oh, oh, you stopped and you smiled at me
And asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Believe me honey
I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
No matter what you do
I only want to be with you
I said no matter, no matter what you do
I only want to be with you

Join me in fighting this outrage!!!!

I got this email from True Majority just now. I heard about this story earlier, and gladly sent my message so that the fat cats can hear MY voice and stop Bank of America from fucking over the people that the bailout money was supposed to help.


From my True Majority update email of today.
"Bank of America and Congressional leaders need to ensure that the Bailout Program be used to provide workers and companies with lines of credit to save workers' jobs"

Dear *****,

Last month, Bank of America accepted $25 billion in taxpayer funds as part of the Wall Street Bailout. Now they're refusing to release lines of credit and causing hundreds to lose their jobs. In Chicago, workers making energy efficient windows and doors at the Republic Windows and Doors plant came to work only to be told their factory was shutting down and they would not be receiving the pay owed to them.1

Hundreds of these laid-off workers have occupied their factory and are refusing to leave without receiving the benefits they rightly deserve -- they're staying in the office day and night in their quest for justice.

Tell Bank of America and Congressional leaders to ensure that the Bailout Program be used to provide workers and companies with lines of credit to save jobs.

Send a Message to Support the Workers Right Now

This is just the latest instance of banks taking advantage of the taxpayer funded bailout. Instead of using our funds to provide loans and credit lines to companies and workers on Main Street, Bank of America is focused on taking over other banks and padding their executives' bottom line.

These workers have become a symbol for everything that's wrong in our economy and they need our support right now. But, once this immediate crisis passes, we'll need to gear up to pass a Next New Deal for Main Street that will protect millions of other Americans struggling like these workers in Chicago.

Thanks for continuing to be vigilant,

-Ilya

Sigh....

Had to wash the "Dead" shirt...I've worn it every night since I got it in the mail...so I guess it was time...
Its just that it was Marc'ified and I liked having it on to sleep in..I know I'm weird.
I love scents and the idea of the closeness of sharing something he wore.
So now it will be all Tide fresh and not drenched with his shed dead skin cells...
Ahhh now thats Romance eh?

Now this is how toilet paper should be mounted!!!


This is the ladies room in my Mom's Publix.
Now this was mounted properly...not below the bar, where you have to perform your best Mary Lou Retton stretches in order to get to the paper...nor awe and amaze with your contortions.
Sheesh....why do so many places ( including my job at the hospital) have the paper mounted so low that you cannot easily obtain any?

Tickets booked!

I'm flying to Utah on January 14th blog faithful, finally finalllllllyyyyyy
FINALLY....
Wish me well, prayers welcome and especially think of me so I'm not having a panic attack before I board the plane...
I think I'll be ok...but who knows.
This is the first time I've flown since before Sept 11th, and only one of a handful of times I've flown alone.
I'm nervous, but excited too....
I think both of us are...
