The Looky-Loos

A Character

Friday, January 23, 2009


Okay, so I've been trying to reach my guy, to confirm this little trip to visit him, and he's not returning my calls. He's never been very good at returning calls, or checking messages for that matter. My vacation could very well have come and gone before he gets the message confirming the trip. YAY! Needless to say ... I'm a bit on the pissy side about this. Really, when I call you FOUR times ... it's likely to be something important ... so pick up the damned phone!!! If he doesn't call me today, it looks like the trip will be off. I don't fancy a 6 hour drive, in the midwest, in the middle of winter. I'd prefer to fly. I'd growl if I could. Rant off!

Trust that little voice in your head that says "Wouldn't it be interesting if..."; And then do it.
Duane Michals

ஜ~§The Question Of The Day§~ஜ

When times are tough or you're feeling down, what's the one food you can count on to make you feel better?

ஜ~§The Word Of The Day§~ஜ

Myriad [myr·i·ad] adj. Constituting a very large, indefinite number; innumerable: "The myriad snowflakes in the winter."

ஜ~§What I'm Reading§~ஜ

Nora Roberts, Sacred Sins and Skousen, The 5,000 Year Leap

ஜ~§What I'm Watching§~ஜ

Tonight is: Ghost Whisperer, Flashpoint, Numb3rs, Psych, Battlestar Galactica, in addition SciFi is replaying Invasion and Moonlight, so I'll be watching those as well.

I have to add ... the last two weeks Ghost Whisperer hasn't recorded ... it's getting me a little annoying, these recording errors. If it doesn't record tonight again, I swear the cable company WILL feel my wrath. It's the ONE show that they don't stream online. (probably because JLH is concerned about having her tush posted on the internet again.) Moving on ...

A Character

I marvel how Nature could ever find space
For so many strange contrasts in one human face:
There's thought and no thought, and there's paleness and bloom
And bustle and sluggishness, pleasure and gloom.

There's weakness, and strength both redundant and vain;
Such strength as, if ever affliction and pain
Could pierce through a temper that's soft to disease,
Would be rational peace--a philosopher's ease.

There's indifference, alike when he fails or succeeds,
And attention full ten times as much as there needs;
Pride where there's no envy, there's so much of joy;
And mildness, and spirit both forward and coy.

There's freedom, and sometimes a diffident stare
Of shame scarcely seeming to know that she's there,
There's virtue, the title it surely may claim,
Yet wants heaven knows what to be worthy the name.

This picture from nature may seem to depart,
Yet the Man would at once run away with your heart;
And I for five centuries right gladly would be
Such an odd such a kind happy creature as he.

William Wordsworth

Yes, backbone! You're important, otherwise you wouldn't be dating, and he should man up and be responsibile and respectful of your time and feelings. I hope it works out the way you want it to!

I think its rather suckey he has not yet returned your calls. I would be pretty upset too. I agree with sassy in that I hope it works out the way you'd like.

Lacey said...

Oooooh. I'd be outraged!

*sigh* That is when I am glad I am single. That makes me insane when you are trying to plan around someone. At least with a horse you KNOW they can't pick up a phone.LOL.
My favorite comfort foods are seasonal. In the winter it is either chicken pot pie or mac and cheese. In the summer I love fruit smoothies. So go get some yummy,creamy mac and cheese and try your boy one more time.:)
