friday brain dump: separation anxiety edition

I dropped Jesse off at the airport today for his weekend trip to Phoenix. I’m feeling physically and emotionally ill right now. But here goes:

  • While at the gym yesterday, I picked up the latest issue of Cosmo to read (I would never actually pay money for an issue). In it, they reported on a poll they did and (among other things) it revealed that 65% of guys have dreamed about their wedding day. Granted, Cosmo is not exactly THE source for trusted relationship research. However, I refuse to believe the majority of guys have dreamed about their wedding day. I’m sure Jesse hasn’t.
  • Also in the same poll, 35% of women don’t always practice safe sex. What? Are you kidding me? Come on, people! Unless you’ve discovered a way to become personally immune to STIs, you can still get infected. And just because someone looks like they don’t have a disease doesn’t mean they really are clean.
  • For the longest time in our relationship, I have always considered Jesse’s XBOX and his XBOX 360 to be the “other women.” I could be naked in front of him, calling him to bed while he’s playing and he’ll still tell me, “Another minute!” But we finally found something me, Jesse and XBOX can do together. The game is called Bioshock (and yes, it’s a single player game) but I just love watching him play it. Bioshock is like a really good science fiction, mystery book you can’t put down. If XBOX is invading your relationship with your man, give Bioshock a try.
  • I miss Jesse so much already.
  • Whenever I’m feeling lonely because Jesse has gone away on a trip, shopping makes me feel better. Just so you know, Banana Republic is having their big Fall sale right now.
  • You all know how much I hate being alone. And I thought I would have to spend the day of my birthday alone while at a conference for work in San Francisco. Then my friend Kattie came to my rescue and will be flying up to SF to keep me company! Words cannot express how grateful I am that she is doing this for me. Luv her!

Kattie and me

I’m outties, peeps. Have a wonderful weekend. This weather is supposed to be nice so if you spend it outdoors, be sure to use sunscreen! If anyone is at Crystal City Sports Pub on Saturday night, come visit me on the third floor. I’ll be watching the Trojans play Wazzu.

Fight on!

It's so nice for me to have found this blogg of yours, it's so interesting. I read what I could. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blogg is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I POETRY write, among other types of Artistic Texts.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another. However...

Some feel invaded and ofended that I present myself this way in their blogs and rudely insult me back or post a mockery post on me.
Some think I'm playing the smart guy who wants to profit, in my miserable and ridiculous gain with Adsense (go figure!), from and with others curiosity and benevolence.
Some simply ignore me.
Some aknowledge that It's most important we all take notion that there's milions of us bloguing arownd the world and thus vital any kind of awareness such as I believe this my self-introduction card and insert apeal brings in.

May you be one of those open and friendly spirits.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you FOR A SECOND click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn a couple of cents for that: I would feel happy and rewarded (because I realy unemployedly need it!!!) if you did click it FOR A SECOND, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. I, for instance, choose immediatly to click on one of your ads, in case you have them. To do so or not, that's the whole beauty of it all, however, blogocitizens must unite also by clicking-helping eachother when we know cybermegacorporations profit from our own selfishness regarding to that simple click.

About this I must say, by my own experience, that no one realy cares (maybe a few) about this apeal I make, no one gives a fucking shit about it and you certainly will confirm this rule, but you must believe me: I love to visit new bloggs every day from all over the world, I've learned and seen a lot after more than 10.000 bloggs I've visted in three months. And I will, like Titanic's Kate, keep on and on and on.

Still I believe in my Work and Dreams and thus
I'll keep on apealing and searching
so strong is my will.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

And of apeal.

So you think this is begging and begging is ugly?
So you think this is just copy/paste and ignoring what you've posted?
Think what you like: begging or not this is my form of self-presentation.
You can allways ignore me,
ignore this apeal and give me shit.

But do not bore to come and moralize me back.

Yikes, who wants to follow that comment? Anyway, I had two thoughts on your post:
1. Those dreams could be nightmares, no?
2. Please quit pushing that XBox and Bioshock. I really, really don't want to buy a new 360. You're going to make me. The only thing stopping me right now is that many owners have reported that their machines overheat and break down at a ridiculously high rate, and I'm hoping for an assembly line fix soon.

Media concepts - haha :)

"I would never actually pay money for an issue" God, that made me laugh too. You are so much like me, it's scary ;)

I read part of the issue (I have way too many magazines ;P), but what piqued my interest was the scary one about women getting attacked in parking lots. So where does that say my brain is now?

Boys and their silly games. I suppose we just have to tolerate it, huh? (well, I confess to having played em myself, but I'm much more mature now. coughcough). Did you ever see the World of Warcraft South Park episode? Sooo funny (and true!)

You're hilarious, just like me! (our mutual admiration society ;)

Great weekend! :)

joshua--i just don't know what to say to that, to be honest with you.

media concepts--
1. that's true. if jesse did dream about his wedding day, i'm sure it would not be a pleasant dream.

2. you know you're going to give in, especially since halo 3 comes out today. and about that machines malfunctioning...jesse hasn't had a problem with his since he bought it whenever they came out. i'm telling you, bioshock is the shizznit. i actually made jesse play it the other day. even i need my fix.

sunchaser--yes, my disdain for cosmo runs deep. it's just the same issue over and over again. "how to please your man in bed," "how to cook for your man," "how to get your man to propose," etc, etc. ummm...what about a girl's happiness? how about cosmo focus on that?

the message i got from that article on women getting attacked in parking lots is that women are getting attacked everywhere so just stay indoors. ay. silly cosmo.

no, i didn't see the world of warcraft episode but i saw the nintendo wii episode where cartman travels to the future to get a wii from the otter people. jesse and i still bust out laughing over this line: otter person about humans, "I don't understand why they eat on tables when they've got perfectly good bellies to eat from." oh south park...
