Not Around Much
I have been busy alot lately..and tired. Not sure if somethings wrong with me..physically or just that I dont sleep much.  Anyways.. I have not felt like being on here much.  When I am on here.. I sit and wonder ,,why? I have maybe 3 who really give a damn about me.  Those who I got added to my family..I wonder why? one time they cared..and talked to me..but as of lately.. barely many do. I guess I am burnt out on here.  Why come to a place..where you can be replaced as a friend so easily? I guess I come back..for those very few who do care.. I can only take so much though.. and I am about to that point. Its bad enough..hardly anyone talks much. I barely get rated much..orloved on any.  WTF do you have to do to get attn on here? I have seen humungous cows even get attn. Maybe its the fact I dont freakin talk dirty to you.. or show you what you want. If thats what it takes.. then so be it.. I will just delete .

Start off the day with a trip to the orthodontist. FUN! I can't eat yet again because it feels like ice picks stabbing me in the nerve, swollen face. Truly, sick of this wire crap. Granted, had a new panoramic x-ray done and the change is beyond amazing. I never really thought my mouth was in that bad of shape before. Sure, I had an underbite and they weren't straight straight, but I didn't think it was THAT bad. I stand corrected. LOL Then the delightful fools online that insist you wanna see their Yahoo sized cocks on cam. Serously! If that's all you can offer, then you're just really pathetic. Muttle through the day.

Not All Terrorism: Obama Tries To Change Subject
Not all terrorism: Obama tries to change subject By MATT APUZZO – 20 hours ago WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's advisers plan to remove terms such as "Islamic radicalism" from a document outlining national security strategy and will use the new version to emphasize that the U.S. does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terrorism, counterterrorism officials say. The change would be a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventive war. It currently states, "The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century." The officials described the changes on condition of anonymity because the document is still being written and is unlikely to be released for weeks, and the White House would not discuss it. But rewriting the strategy document is the latest example of Obama putting his stamp on U.S. foreign policy, as with his pr

Well it seems that Ghana is USA's achilles heel in the World Cup.  4 years ago they eliminated USA 2-1 in group play.  This year they eliminate USA in the round of 16 by a score of 2-1.  This game went into overtime to decide the winner.  USA had a very good appearance in the tournament; but, can't help but feel that if they played defense in the first 10 minutes of games they would win handily.  Congratulations to Ghana.

Not A Happy Camper
I used to do group counselling sessions for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. One of the exercises we did (I think it was replicating a study, I'm not sure and it's really not the point) was have people imagine a line that reflected the spectrum of 'bad abuse' (ie 'not so bad' to 'horrific')- and then get them to place themselves on it. It was amazing how people, whose stories would make even the most self-absorbed malcontent on this site stop and think for maybe a nanosecond, would always put themselves at the lower end of the scale. Nobody ever stood at the horrific end. There was always, to them, someone that had it worse than them.   Now if I tried to replicate that on this the more general sense...I'm pretty sure there'd be a pile-up at the horrific end. There'd probably be people ripping out each others' eyeballs in an attempt to get to the 'most horrific' spot. The "oh you don't knowwwwwwwww" and "you don't understandddddddd"s would be deafening.   And tha

It saves time if I just turn the printer off and on.” Me: “That won’t fix the problem.” Client: “I don’t see why not. I don’t have time to go back and forth.” (We go through the procedure several times, with the client short cutting the directions each time.) Me: “Okay, I think I know what to do.

Not A Good Night.
Came home from work, ate dinner, started playing some old school Super Mario Brothers on the Wii... One of the kids' friends (Who was playing with us 15 minutes earlier) came running into the apartment, crying. One of the kids' friends was hit by a car in front of the apartment complex. He was 16. Always there with a smile, always friendly to everyone. Dead at 16. I'm in shock, the kids are hysterical, the wife is taking it hard. Wife tried to find someone to cover her shift, but couldn't. It was rough, the accident happened right at the only entrance to the apartment complex. We had to drive past the boy's body, draped in a sheet. His sneakers still on the other side if the highway. It's going to be a long, sleepless night.   Rest in Peace, Jesse. You will be missed.

Her front door has a low battery in it.) Me: “Well, ma’am. It appears that your front door has a low battery.” Caller: “But what does that mean?!

Feels like I’m burning from the inside out.In pain from all the misery and doubt.Why, why, do you do this to yourself?After everything else, in your life, you have felt.It’s okay to be vulnerable, it’s okay to smile.Everyone gives in every once in a while.No, I can’t, I won’t, I refuse.This is a game, I won’t lose. They will not win.I can control this fire burning within.No one will ever be able to say,They made me cry once more.Too many take credit,For that before.I live with regret, heartache and fear.But, not anymore.I have dried all my tears.

Not A Novel Yet But Potential...
My good friend and writing partner happens to be a pastor at my church. He told me a story last night that made me laugh and wonder what people are thinking. A woman, who recently started attending our church, had a meeting with our senior pastor to tell him why she couldn't attend our church anymore. "You employ too many gay people." My friend, a married heterosexual with 2 children, is one of the 'gay' people on staff. The other 2 are women who are also married and have children.None of them is aware that they're gay but I guess this woman says they are. God bless our pastor for what he said to her, "This church is open and welcome to ALL people, even bigots."

Not A Fan Of Balls?!?!

"I'm not a big fan of balls" which sent both of us into hysterics hahahaha

Not Always How Shit Seems
so im not one to normally post blogs or write shit down even, but this has been on my mind for a while now 2good friends of mine were locked up 2years ago for 2nd degree murder, they were both skinheads, k now before i get into it im not racist, i didnt know em on that level, i knew em as just your regular guys like to drink  chill ect ect. they never did me wrong so i didnt care bout there political bullshit. anyways, the paper was goin on about how the attack was completely random and unprovoked, dont get me wrong i know they had violent tendencies and shit and were always willing to brawl or prove a point, but i never thought shit would go as far as the cops and paper was saying. four days ago tyler was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole for 10years, rob is yet to go to court, but what really bothers me out of this, is i really truley wanted to beleive they didnt do it, like i brought rob into my home he met my now ex girlfriend he met my son. its just sooo
Not Art But Funny!!
So sad...Please, pass this on if you have dated, known, work with or are related to,married to (or divorced from) or have children with, someone who suffers from beinga fucking idiot. We all need to understand, being a fucking idiot is real andmust be taken seriously. You could be sitting next to a fucking idiot right now.There is still no known cure for being a fucking idiot and sympathy does not help. Sometimes a piece of 2x4 or a large wrench to the back of the head helps but not a lot.We can raise awareness!!!53% wont re-post this because they don't know how to copy and paste...

Not A Word
have not felt this, since long ago. My heart beats faster, and my body heat grows. Your smile is warm, and I can't help but return it. I feel odd, which is not bad. It is happiness, I'm just not used to it yet. Just talking to you, lifts my mood. And every single day, I can't wait to see you.   But I'm actually scared, that you'll know what I feel. I don't want you to ignore me, not like the others. I know you're different, but the fear will always linger. I just want to be by your side, supporting you. I just want to see your smile, and hug you. I just want you in my life, even if my lips will be sealed. If it means staying by you, my lips shall utter not a word.

Not An Easy Thought To Handle
I sit here as usual working at night , on the computer, and I think over the past couple years. (yes I do mean serious thinking ) and I realise that I am missing something. Its not Stability, nor looks, its money(or lack thereof). See I questioned , what it is I maybe do so wrong, but I realise its not so much me..Money is useful , of that we  have 0 doubt, but in the grand scheme of things does it really ever buy true love , and happiness ? Not unless you are purchasing a hooker and some alcohol, apparently. (since I dont purchase hookers I would not know) I do however drink. Now in retrospect, I think I have it figured out..or for my case anyway. I pay bills, I take care of my kids, I fuck like a champ, I am awesome relationship material, except I dont have a gold card ? Now , excuse me if I am wrong here, but just because I cant afford to buy you a new car doesnt make me less of a man, it actually makes me smarter than the dumbass(s) that do. Secondly Id rather not get a Gold Diggin
Not Acceptable
Delusion is when you are foolish enough to believe something that isn't and never was real...people live in this world every day and I am one of them..I witness others lying..then covering it up with another lie just to lie to someone else..until they become smothered in a world of lies..then wondering why nothing goes the way it should...stating they love them all in the process...confessions and solutions are simple...but excuses and more lies seems to be the only answer...playing the game..and playing with REAL peoples emotions...flying into no-fly zones...breaking the hearts of those they are aupposed to love the most....lying to every single one of them...I have lived that life before and it was NOT worth the cost...ONE person opened my eyes to how the truth really can set you free and I refuse to live that way took me TOO long to build back something I tore down and since that realization hit me...I vowed to be a better person and always be open..honest.
Not Being Able To Forget The Past
Today i was blindsided by a little piece of my past i never wanted to relive. 6 yrs ago i left my ex husband because he beat the shit out of me one night in a fit of rage. He fractured several bones in my fave including the bone under my left eye. I wore that black eye for 3 months along with my eye being filled with blood, a concusion and some memory loss, Like the birth of My children. Time has healed most of my wounds mentally and Physically but today this cold brought back something i would not wish on my worst enemy. Being that the bone under my eye is chipped, If i get a sinus infection or a cold of any kind and the drainage that comes with it, My eye swells up and the pain is almost unbearable. well today i blew my nose and felt this pop, and loe and behold my left eye is all swollen, my head is killing me and i have been crying all night because the pain is so bad. It feels like 6 yrs ago all over again this really fuckin sucks ass
Not Being Around As Much
Hey peeps. I haven't been on much lately,but not through choice. I thought that I would leave a blog just to let you all know that I haven't forgotten about you. I am having a running feud with my current supplier over their charges and overall crappy service. They have responded by cutting my speed down to just a crawl above dial-up.If any of you are interested..(yeah name is Madasafish...stay well away from them, they are nothing but a con. Anyhoo..hope to get a new provider soon, and be back up to to speak. So don't think that, because I've not left any comments lately, I am ignoring just takes soooooo long to post anything at the moment. Thanks for all your great comments, keep them coming, and Keep the faith. cheers...your friend Adam

"not By Might Nor By Power"
December 3, 2006 "Not by Might nor by Power" My speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power . . . —1 Corinthians 2:4 About this cover If in preaching the gospel you substitute your knowledge of the way of salvation for confidence in the power of the gospel, you hinder people from getting to reality. Take care to see while you proclaim your knowledge of the way of salvation, that you yourself are rooted and grounded by faith in God. Never rely on the clearness of your presentation, but as you give your explanation make sure that you are relying on the Holy Spirit. Rely on the certainty of God’s redemptive power, and He will create His own life in people. Once you are rooted in reality, nothing can shake you. If your faith is in experiences, anything that happens is likely to upset that faith. But nothing can ever change God or the reality of redemption. Base your faith on that, and you are as e

Not Being Around
I want all my friends and family to know that i have not forgotten about you, but it seems that i have a severe case of what they are calling stomach flu or food poisoning, they do not know as of yet, and just sitting up at this point takes a lot out of me, i do miss the interactions with each and every one of you, and as soon as i feel better, i will get back into the swing of things, i would like to thank everyone who sent the lovely gifts, and well wishes lets hope i get past this soon, i hate being sick! much luv to all!

Not Being On Lately
Just A quick Note to let people who care know I having taking time off of here.There is so much going on in my life.So many changes I want to make,Some of them are going to be trying and very emotional for me. It has come time to worry about me and my daughter.As my daughter gets older I watch what a incredible lady she is becoming. and the one thing I can truly say Is that My children are the one thing in my life I did right.I never had the chance to watch my son grow up.because he died,the worse part is never getting to know the man he would have become.He was taken from me in a daycare drowning.I am not writing this for your pity or sympathy.I am writing this so that those out there thats have children realize that they are a gift NOT a right.How much does it take to tell your child that you love them unconditionally.I need to better my life so that my daughter knows there is nothing she cant do.The REAL friends I have here, I want you to know how much you mean to me.Thank you so m
Not Broken....
Nothing broken at work today! Yeah! I still get teased by everyone I know, about my broken rib... The patients, colleages, friends, family, everyone! But...

Just came home from work and in 8 hours I have to be there again... That s*cks!!!

Not Back Yet...due In On Thursday Dallas Airport..cannot Wait To Be Home Again!
Well, it has been difficult. I have gotten through it. I cannot believe my sister is gone. The funeral was very nice and although I suppose that we will never look like ourselves after we pass ...probably it would be good to hope that we will look the same. She reminded me of a late cousin who had passed when I was really young. Doing the Euelogy (wrong spelling) anyhow...I did the speech to remember my sister by...and family looked at me like I was cold hearted. I just know my sis was there with me giving me the strength I needed to do it. Her son told me I did an awesome job. My nieces son did something really spooky at the funeral home. He walked up to the casket to say a prayer kneeling next to the casket and he said to my niece...nana is not dead. She said yes she are looking right at her...he said nope she is standing next to you and Aunt Kris. She freaked...I smiled at him. Kids know things we donot know. Who is to say ...right...she could have been. Anyhow, it

Not Being Able To Spell....the Least Of My Worries I Think.
panning to the left and promanading to the right, taking it all in through his nostrils and trying not to fight, the words that he refuses to let spill on the beaten tracks of men. he glares through shaded glasses directly to the face of the sun, and feels, with all remorse, that he has only half finnished a race, weathered and torn out is his half beaten face, no signs of tornment and no relief from grace. the bronze boy sits on a bench beside his sister reading a book outside the library where everything is still, while a man writes the ending to a story never started, smoking a cigarette and drawing blanks from the concrete, in a litirary context that runs down the ear of a well soiled carcase, and i, and my words, just die .

Frustrations continue to abound...I use to always think it was Pro Mets that did not use common sense. I have now discovered that Drs & Surgeons do not use common sense either.Like mentioned earlier they want to wash her out again on tuesday and then keep her on the VAC machine which is a machine that is basically like a suction foam into the open wound areas and keep her on this without changing the dressing.Time to insert lack of common sense #1 ..By not changing the dressing you are leaving bacteria build up on the sponges for that two week period which is inside an open wound and has direct access to the blood stream.Then after this VAC treatment they are going to have the plastic surgeon close up the wound in whichever way he is able to..Time to insert lack of common sense #2..When you are an adult and you get a bone infection...that bone infection can not be removed from the bone, The only thing that can happen with that infection in the bone is it can go "dormant" or sleep.

Not Breathing
She will not hold her breath, which is as well,For he'd not suffocate her with his need;Her eyes wide-open, as she sucks the seedFrom deep within him; she can almost tellWhen she will sense him coming: let him tenseAnd find his heart-beat surging, see she's wrappedHer tongue around the eagerness she's mappedWith her lips and her mind - a recompense;Is this the reward sought by both of them?The taste that washes round - an afterthought,An afterworld, beyond that little death,To which he will succumb, when she won't stemThe flow of his excitement, for he's taughtThat it's as well, she will not hold her breath.

It's nice not being found by an ex or by an ex guild on mech warrior or  swtor or wow or eve or by any 1 what I do is my own personal business. Staying in the shadows and not givng any soul  about what other people are doing.
Not Cute...
Ok see, I know this site has a bit of "racey" pix on it and shit and that's cool, don't get me wrong. But if you're Goddamn busted as fuck, and you weigh like over 268.9 lbs. please keep that shit private. Nobody needs to see that motherfuckin "monster box"!! Goddamm. a motherfucker has to eat around these Goddamn parts, and apparently (bitch) you'z already eatin' good. So try not to fuck up my meal that shit is scarin' the cat.
Not Cool.
Okay so Ashleigh made me realize something. I dont like it when the shoes on the other foot. Its not fair damn it. Lmao. Im not use to this. Fuck.
Not Cool.
My tummy hurts. The puppy pee'd on my blanket. She bit me while i was sleeping to wake me up. What little sleep i get with her, she makes sure its painful lol. Random people are messaging me and i don't like it none. I've got like 100 things to do today. I quit my other job, which means i quit both of em now haha. Ill get a new one, no biggie. I just couldnt take the hospital or the resturant no more. The hours where bullshit. And the people sucked. I put her in the cage crate thing, so i can clean and shes freaking out, and i dont like it lol. Anyway. Those are my morning/afternoon thoughts.
Not Certain Where To Start
So, tonight I joined the Lost Cherry Community. I have never heard of LC bfore toinght, and honesly, cannot find the person who encouraged us to join at all.... Is there a philosophy for LC? Am I a big geek for asking for one? Just wondering..... Comments welcome, provided I can read them.....
Not Clogging Bulletins
My opinion on the whole NSFW policy is that it is a great policy. If you don't think that a young child walking through the room should see the pic then mark it as adult. It is not going to block anyone who wants to see it, and it keeps the site classy. I will admit, I have been searching on here for some more women who are classy enough not to WANT to show their privates all over the world, but it is difficult enough either way. The MAIN reason that I agree with the policy is that I have recently had a family with small children move into my home, and I have been unable to use CherryTap while they are here because the children are 5 and 9. I do not want to expose them to the sleasy world that the internet can introduce into the home, and CherryTap was started with the idea of OFFERING the possibility to combine the internet community (Sluts, Prudes, Point Chasers, and hermits alike) to come together and have a place to chat with like minded people (with 500,000 people, everyone

Not Calm, Numb!
Not calm, numb! Ripping, renting, Tearing at space, Corrupting the moment, Distorting the place. Bubbling, seething, Nest of emotions, Struggling for sense, Of conflicting notions. Fear and guilt, Hatred and blame, And yet I sit passive, Calm just the same. Casually, calmly, Not even glum, I've exhausted all senses, I survive now in numb.
Not Clear On These Peoples Concept...
Good Morning you ever wonder if certain events are fixed. You know the winner is determined before the contest has started. Jenny Brown, 62, entered her sponge cake in a contest sponsored by an organization in Wimblington, England, in July, was informed by judges that she had won "second place," and was only later told that she was the only entrant (but was also told that she could not have first place). [BBC News, 7-5-07] Apparently the Judges wife’s cake did not get entered after all… This next little bit borders on the line of being love sick and just plain forgot this might be dangerous… Undignified Deaths A 21-year-old man fell to his death in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, in April when he leaned a little too far over on a hillside rock in order to write his girlfriend's name on an available space on the surface.

That's why last night was like soooooooo nice. Girl: Good. Now come hear and give me a kiss.(kisses romantically.)

Not Causing Harm
The most straightforward advice on how to discover your true nature is this: practice not causing harm to anyone—neither yourself nor others—and every day, do what you can to help. If you take this instruction to heart and begin to use it, you will probably find very quickly that it is not so easy. Often, before you know it, someone has provoked you and either directly or indirectly, you've let them have it. Therefore, when the intention is sincere but the going gets rough, most of us could use some help. We could use further instruction on how to lighten up and turn around our well-established habits of striking out and blaming. The four methods for holding your seat provide just such support for developing the patience to stay open to what's happening, instead of acting on automatic pilot. These four methods are: 1) not setting up the target for the arrow; 2) connecting with the heart; 3) seeing obstacles as teachers; 4) regarding all that occurs as a dream. F

Not Camera Shy? Good! I Have A Request!
Hey everyone!! I am hoping you all can help! I have a website that I am just finishing off with a re-design. I'm putting in a photo gallery and would desperately LOVE to have some photos to put in there! My site is Wild Talk Radio, and I'm asking that if any of you could, please send me some of your photos to put in there.... Pretty much anything can be used, as long as its not FULL nudity... If you want to send topless, lingerie, clothed, fashion, etc., I would be most appreciative!! I'll send you some FU-BUCKS if you do! If you could in some pics, have a Wild Talk Radio sign in any form, just hand-written is great!! Or if you get more creative, that's awesome too! You can Shoutbox me for an email address, and as soon as the site is finished I'll send you the link to see it! Thanks again!!!!!

Not Closing
To All My Friends and Fu Family,    I am writing this blog to let everyone know that Roughstock owned by CB is still one of the best country bars on the fu. It is not closing nor is there any intention by CB to close it. Due to a staff issue that went bad rumors have been started. This is to let everyone know the truth. Please shoe CB your support and love by taking time to go into roughstock and spending time and buy him and his staff a drink. Thanks Your Sinful Friend Suzy
Not Cut Out For This...yet
So I'm trying to get a bit more exercise in after slacking off for a bit too long.   Played football on sunday for 4 hours, badminton for an hour yesterday, football for an hour today, and football hopefully again tomorrow for an hour or so.   Now, the problem lies in my muscles, my groin is still playing up from Sunday, obviously the running around since then hasn't helped, but still. Badminton was ridiculously hard work due to not playing for over a month, was a really good game though (even if I did lose). My right shoulder and the muscle from my wrist to my elbow just weren't happy today though.   Hopefully this should stop though after I'm in my routine again for a few weeks.
Not Cutting My Hair!
I'm going to grow it back out once again.
Not Come
May the 26th not come,the 3 weeks of hell willbegin, inside the tortureof the mind, a victim ofthe sin.All for the worthless cause,in the face, the victim of thewar, strapped down with chains and locked up in bars.Inner rage and deceit, lifeless body, no energy, outcome not defeat, allwill be over, in the path tothe retreat.

Not Crazy
I'm not crazy. W00-H00! (Not in a bad way so shut up!) Have you ever had one of those ex's that for whatever reason wanted to make you think the entire time that you were crazy and that there was something wrong with you? Have you ever had one of those times in your life that you began to believe them that something was wrong with you? Then have you ever started turning things around without them then go to that point where you had to find out the truth once and for all only to find out that everything that you thought that they were doing behind your back was in fact reality. I had all this happen and I am looking at the postive of it right now. The good from this being that I was right and I am learning from this to trust my own insticts and intuitions more. I am also free now emotionally to pursue a relationship with a really good guy that a month ago I was not ready to fully open up to and now I am able to do so.

An Irishman had been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally said that the bar is closing. So the Irishman stood up to leave and fell flat on his face. He tried to stand one more time; same result. He figured he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside he stood up and fell flat on his face. So he decided to crawl the 4 blocks to his home. When he arrived at the door he stood up and again fell flat on his face. He crawled through the door and into his bedroom. When he reached his bed he tried one more time to stand up. This time he managed to pull himself upright, but he quickly fell right into bed and is sound asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow. He was awakened the next morning to his wife standing over him, shouting, "So, you've been out drinking again!!" "What makes you say that?" he asked, putting on an innocent look. "The pub called. You left your wheelchair there again." This has been an

Not Dealing With It So Well....
Well he left....he's gone....back to florida. The love of my life, gone as quick as he came. I miss him so head is pounding so bad from the tears that have fallen from my eyes. The thing is I didnt even cry when he left...I didnt break down till I got home, to my empty house...with no history channel or the miltary channel on. Silence....the scent of his colone filled my nose when I walked into my room grab something, and that is when it hit me. And it hit me hard. It felt like running into a brick wall. I fell onto my bed just ballin my eyes out. And I havnt been able to stop since. I want him to come back....oh god how I want him back here. :: cries :: Cry baby aka Natasha :: Ernies Perfect Drug ::

Not Designed For Alone
I don't do well being alone. Right now, my fam is off visiting other fam in TN, and I'm at home alone. Of course, the first thing I did was clean house...I'm kinda OCD like that. Then, though, me and a buddy headed out to the golf course. Something free about tapping a crazy little ball along with drinking beer and driving a cart! Unfortunately, 18 holes only lasts so long, so I find myself at home watching NASCAR alone. That totally sux! The worst part for me is that I don't normally get in trouble unless I am home alone. It's like something in my brain pops, and the next thing I know I'm getting drunker than ever and knocking boots with chica after chica. This time I'm gonna be good...well, maybe not so good with the drinking, but I'm not gonna try to hook up with anyone. Now, if they come after me, weeeelllll.....that's another story! LOL (so I have a high opinion of myself!) Anyway, I'm pretty much rambling now. Take care, and if you're in lower AL...giggle!

Not Doing Good
Ok this is what is up and why I wont be on for a couple of days...On May 29th I was in the ER with major pains in my left side near my lung and kidney, I was diagnosed with Pleurisy which is an infection in the lining around my lung causing it to be really hard to breath without pain, Ive been put on pain killers and lots of rest. BUT of course it doesnt stop there! In the mix of all this I got a sunburn on top of a sunburn causing me to get sun poisoning. So right now Im drained, sore, having constant chills and have next to no energy. So my plans for the next couple of days are my ass being on my couch under a warm comfy blanket, watching movies and not doing a damn thing. I hope all of you have a really good weekend and I will talk to you all when Im better. Blessed Be Juniper

Not Day 135
WORD COUNT: 4,945   In case you haven't noticed my mildly dancing a jig, my family and I are officially moved out of Allan and Lesa's, my brother-in-law's house where we've been staying since the flood! I got home from work last night and my wife and kids were pretty much ready to go ... and the family was eager to see us go and let it show! I'm trying not to take it personally, but some bad things did get said and it'll be time out of each other's sight under the same roof that we all desperately need! Martha got off work at two yesterday and after school the kids and their aunt Mary had already been out there -- Sarah and Jeffrey had even picked out their rooms -- bringing one load of our things. Mary's still staying with Allan and Lesa and family because the three-bedroom trailer we have has room at maximum occupancy for four people, two adults and two children.   It occurred to me this morning that it's the first time here that just the family unit I'm part of (that is, the

I needed to step out of the noise and commotion of the bar. I was comfortable in its familiar faces, i thought id kill two birds with one stone,take a walk to the back an pee.. and maybe grab a smoke. I knew sum of the fellow smokers out side. I bantered and laughed as a mixed group of four finished their break and walked back inside to rev up the nightlife vibe. I still had half a cigarette to finish so i drew in and took a look around of my dark surroundings..... What was that? Did i just see movement in the shadows of the alley?.......... I stoped squinted my eyes trying to focus, There was no movement...........just a dark shape smoothly growing before me. I couldent say a word as his eyes meet mine. He dident smile... but his eyes did as he slowely held out his hand................I couldent move .. I dident waver from his stare.... i felt his hand firmly on my wrist ..,,, he pulled me with him ...not to him ... so i beganthe journey in to the shadows with bated breath ......(

Is it possible to love somebody too much? I'm such a clingy fuckface. I hate it. She is always on my mind and I almost wish I were busier so that I wouldn't be spending all my time waiting on her--because her life is much busier than mine. I just...I make myself sick sometimes with the way I am about her. No woman can deal with a clingy guy for long. I'm trying so fucking hard NOT to be apain in her ass, but I can only imagine that she probably views my little "just called to let you know I love you"s as me being some paranoid fuckhead--which I guess maybe I am. I need her. I need to be with her. I miss you. I love you. I'm sorry if this bothers you.

Not Everyone Is Holy Enough And Healthy Enough To Have A Front Row Seat In Our Lives.there Are Some People In Your Life That Need To Be Loved From A D
Not everyone is holy enough and healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives.There are some people in your life that need to be LOVED FROM A DISTANCE. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going anywhere relationships, friendships, and fellowships! Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention to: Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth up hill and which ones are going down hill? When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know and appreciate you and the gifts that lie within you? The more you seek the God head and the things of God...the more you seek quality, the more you seek not just the hand of God but the face of God the more you seek things honorable...the more you seek growth, peace of mind
Not Enough Time
It's almost time for Thanksgiving, seems like I don't have enough time anymore. Now that I'm single again, life has gotten so busy, I was shocked to discover that there are men who actually want to go out with me. That is very exciting, as I figured I'd just be alone for a long time, if not forever. It is a lonely place I find myself in none the less. I miss having someone here with me, the closeness. Not that I want my former boyfriend back. To much bad history there. I think it's just the holiday blues getting to me, the though of spending Thanksgiving alone is not appealing, but I do have a 4 day weekend which is nice. And I hate turkey!!! So all in all being alone isn't such a bad thing, I can catch up with all my friends on Cherry Tap, and get some gaming in to boot. And of course there's sure to be a party or two going on. Just have to remember my favorite saying, Don't worry be happy.
Note This Is From A Bulliten
The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light, I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight. My wife was asleep, her head on my chest, My daughter beside me, angelic in rest. Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white, Transforming the yard to a winter delight. The sparkling lights in the tree I believe, Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve. My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep, Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep. In perfect contentment, or so it would seem, So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream. The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near, But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear. Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know, Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow. My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear, And I crept to the door just to see who was near. Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night, A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight. A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old, Perhaps a M

If someone is kind enough to pass this along to you, then this will most likely be my last comminique with you. I want you to know that I wish you had given me some chance to know you better. You have seen my passionate streak, but I wish you had seen the rest of my personality as well. I am a good and decent man and friend. Please forgive my obsession with you of late. I just got carried away when you shut off comminication without word or warning. It troubled and hurt me greatly. Take care of yourself and know that I wont bother you again. I wish you well.

I have been real busy with work. so that is why i have not been on here.But i would like to also add that im friend's with 2 people that don't like one another right now.

Note To Self.
As I was going through these papers, I found a note that I had written to myself quite some time ago. I thought I'd share it with you. Sarah Leigh, It basically comes down to the following: you either get busy living or you get busy dying. It's up to you. You have to make the choices that govern your personal life. You are what you make of yourself. You are a product of yourself and your choices. You must choose to make it. You must make it for yourself. After having found the undeniable proof of my own knowledge (knowledge breeds responsibility, folks), I posted that lovely pink sheet on my wall. I've read it many times today. Each time, my responsibility strikes me. You see, I'm creating my environment. Not only have I plastered my walls, but I have also ripped apart my pantry, removing certain items. I have visual reminders, such as pictures of loved ones and my paperclip chain (for every pound I lose, I add a clip). Again, I'm creating my environment. For me, stru

Note Two
He turned the corner and spotted (insert name) trailing three of his female victims behind him. (Insert name) spotted (insert name) and smiled, the evil seemed to flow right off him. Unprepared to confront him right now, (insert name) turned around and headed back the way he came.

The Notebook
So many of my close, long- time friends have asked me in the last severaql months if I had seen the movie, "The Notebook". I would reply, "No, why" and they would all say the same thing. They would say that my personality was that of the lead male character. Naturally I had assumed it was all just to flatter me. Well, today, I was fortunate enough to be able to veiw this remarkable film. So many of you have been so right . I am exactly like the main character. Even the concept of the movie is everything I believe in and have been saying for months. That love doesn't come from a wallet. Money is insequential when love is involved. The idea that love given should be lasting is not as old fashoined or as far fetched as many may think. Why do so many people put stipulations or conditions on their love? Why is it so difficult for so many people to accept true love when it is given to them? It's like everyone lives in fear to open up and give or recieve love. Sure people get bur
Note From The Universe
A Note from the Universe You know, you've been blessed with a great number of gifts. Your insights, good taste, and savoir-faire. Friends who adore you, elements that support you, and spiritual laws that serve you. Yet, in my book at least, what really takes the cake, is that you get to be you. I pulled a few strings.

A Note I Received From A Friend In The Uk
Two Proposals Worth Considering... New Gas Plan....Blair wants us to cut the amount of fuel we use. The best way to stop using so much fuel is to deport 11 million illegal immigrants! That would be 11 million less people using our fuel. The price of fuel would have to come down as a result. New Immigration Plan... Bring our troops home from Iraq to guard the border. When they catch an illegal immigrant crossing the border, hand him a canteen, rifle and some ammo and ship him to Iraq. Tell him if he wants to come to Britain, then he must serve a tour in the military. Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on it. After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country. He will also be registered to be taxed and be a legal patriot. This option will probably deter illegal immigration and provide a solution for the troops in Iraq, and the aliens trying to make a better life for themselves. If they refuse to serve, ship them to Iraq a

The Notebook
Not Everything Is As It Seems
A sexy woman went up to the bar in a quiet rural pub...She gestured alluringly to the bartender who approached her immediately. Seductively signalled that he should bring his face closer to hers. As he did, she gently caressed his full beard. "Are you the manager?" She asked, softly stroking his face with both hands. "Actually, no," he replied. "Can you get him for me? I need to speak to him? " She said, running her hands beyond his beard and into his hair. "I'm afraid I can't," breathed the bartender. Is there anything I can do?" "Yes. I need for you to give him a message," she continued, running her forefinger across the bartender's lips and slyly popping a couple of her fingers into his mouth and allowing him to suck them gently. "What should I tell him?" the bartender managed to say. "Tell him," she whispered, " there's no toilet paper, hand soap, or paper towels in the ladies room

Noted Randomly Of Movies
I was going to say that Little Miss Sunshine was the only movie I saw in 2006 to mention Nietzsche (I haven't seen that many movies) but I'd have to add The History Boys to the list. Though Little Miss Sunshine mentioned Proust also (and the second of the two of course a much wider range still). Good year for interesting movies in and out of the mainstream by the way...

Not Even Words Can Tell
No words can tell how the heart feels when the person you love rips your feelings apart piece by piece No words can discribe how many tears you cry when the one you love leaves and doesent say goodbye Not Even Words Can Tell No words can tell the one you love really how much you love them if the one you love is not listening, just turning their back to you and walking away with another girl once again No words can tell the kind hearted people how much time they are waisting, but they do not think in thier hearts they are waisting time Not Even Words Can Tell No words can tell the loved unloved soul that there might be another chance for them and the one they love, because by this point they are already dead The hurt, sarrow, and the feeling of being unloved by the only person they ever wanted to feel loved by got to them and they couldnt take it anymore No words can tell the person that they loved how they felt, because the dead one was the o
Not Every Soldier, But Obviously A Few
by Glenda "Five US soldiers have been charged in a rape and multiple murder case that has outraged Iraqis, as proof emerged the rape victim was a child of 14, and not over 20 as US officials insist. The 14 year-old teenager lived in Mahmoudiya, south of Baghdad. Iraq will ask the United Nations to end immunity from local law for U.S. troops, the human rights minister said on Monday. Although U.S. military has claimed the girl allegedly gang-raped by five U.S. soldiers was an adult over the age of 20, documents show the girl was just 14. Reuters news agency authenticated the rape/murder victim's age on Sunday by examining her birth certificate and identity card. By Friday though the military backed away from those claims as Reuters and others began probing the matter. On Friday Army spokesman Paul Boyce said the U.S. military now believes the alleged victim was between the ages of 14 and 20. In addition to raping and murdering her, the soldiers allegedly killed both her p
A Note To Cierra's Pr Peeps....
I’m ready to make CIARA my new ‘It’ girl...... but you folks need to send me a pic of her genitals first........ I won’t publish the pictures to my audience and at least we can move forward....... I understand that she is supposed to have an extra large labia.......and I’m cool with that....... Hell, if the lips of her happy no no spot are large enough to put lipstick on I may even be convinced to think that it is sexy......but I am strongly opposed to making love to CIARA if she has a penis....... Even a small one. Let’s say she has a penis and beef curtains… I’m still opposed to having sex with her....... although I don’t think that she should be stripped of her right to marry BOW WOW or MISSY ELLIOT or whomever is into that type of thing...... that is all.... Im jus sayin.....
Note To The Viewer...
Ok... If you are prissy or proper, or just cant seem to let go of yourself... If you get offended over a few pictures, then don't go look at them. Don't even look over here at me. Later! Robbie
Not Enough
His strength is never enough just passing smile through my window a casual word I hear over and over reminds me and makes me laugh inside. But to him my love is never enugh not needed, not wanted he causes my cries then wants to know how he can quiet them. A shot of ignorance poured into a wine glass his faith is never enough a fleeting feeling of security a warm embrace that fades into the days that pass. Like a feeling I cannot keep so sincere to hear but so painful to feel second best, someone stealing my spot my treasure, but who can own love. My smiles are never enough when half of the time they are lies just a show I perform for others who never seem to see past my costume. Sometimes it really doesn't matter but sometimes it leaves me empty they are not enough just a chilling phrase meant to be warm. A love that's only there sometimes or not at all, what is enough are you enough, am I trusting you too much because I need to trust so badly.
