A great love is a lot like a good memory.
When it’s there, & you know it’s there,
but it’s just outta your reach,
it can be all that you think about.
And you can focus on it and try to force it,
but the more you do,
the more you seem to push it away.
But if you’re patient,
and you hold still,
well maybe, just maybe,
it’ll come to you.
^^ Can I get an AMEN?? ^^
Drinks & stargazing w/ my current favorite posse!!!, baby time (little shorts! little socks!), lady time (Crashing in my bed, oh la la!), walking to yummy burgers, talking to drunk older men while enjoying a beer w/ ladies, exploring the new neighborhood, kissing/playing with Garbage, avoiding laundry & being a couch potato on someone Else’s couch(thank you), Just enjoying company & being content in the moment -no stress, no worries… Just being.
I love Lao Tzu, I read Te-Tao Ching this time last year.
This is an important reminder right now! (#amirite?!)
Last night I sat w/ Gabi on her driveway drinking a beer; we ending up picking up Oz at 1am & going to the trashiest dive bar ever. I heard the worse rendition of Metallica’s, “Enter Sandman” EVER. Although some sleaze-ball in a sleeveless tee totally loved it.
Tonight I am going with my favorite people to Howl-o-Scream. It should be a great time. :)
Saturday, I’m going to pack up the rest of my things & pick up Garbage the cat.
Last night I viewed an apartment, & I loved it! Wood floors, cute little kitchen, I kept telling Renee that I could really see me & Garbage there! There is TONS of windows w/ a garden underneath, she’ll be able to look at the birds & bugs down there.
I’m wanting to pay the security deposit & first month on Saturday. I’m finding it kinda hilarious in it’s own way that last year at this time, I was looking for my own place. Kinda silly how it’s all gone full circle…? I think I’m going to ask the landlord if I can drop the boxed up stuff off there, & I’ll move in officially the following weekend. Just so I don’t have to move stuff to my mom’s, then to my place, it will save a trip. (Since I’m enlisting the help of my awesome rockstar friends!) We shall see what the landlord says!!!
I’m also google-ing about decreasing the stress of a move on a cat, I’m kinda worried about that. I’m thankful she’s young & should be able to handle it pretty well. It will also get her used to different people & noises, she won’t be a scaredy cat! I bought her the Litter Qwitter & books on training cats on Tuesday, those should be coming soon & really come in handy.
Okay, here’s a gift of a song I found; it’s grimey, I hope you like it.
Know who you are, by forgiving who you’re not.
Treasure your dreams…

Meet Garbage! Gregg & I were volunteering for Coastal Cleanup Saturday morning-afternoon. We didn’t clean a beach though (tricked!), we walked down about three miles of road with our team picking up trash that drivers have thrown out their window. It was pretty sad how much people threw out their cars… lots of beer bottles, fast food cups, plastic bags… Early in the day, I found a dollar bill… I thought that would be the best “find” of the day…
After an hour or two, I pointed to a kitten about to cross the road. Gregg saw traffic coming and stopped it so he could rescue the kitten. Little did he know that she’d run into his arms! (Not exaggerating) I immediately yelled out, “OURS!!” and did a happy dance on the other side of the road.
Back story: I have been BEGGING for a pet (dog/cat/etc/whatever…) for over 6 months now. The deal Gregg and I made was when an animal found him, that would be our pet. Why couldn’t it find me? – I can’t be trusted, I’d “find” a puppy every day! We’ve even joked about me getting my friends to put a kitten in a basket and leave in on our porch…!
Our entire crew was excited. We made plans for me and another girl to take the kitten to the vet immediately to make sure she wasn’t mirco-chipped or had feline AIDS/Leukemia and get her baby shots. While we were waiting for the organizers to pick us up and take us to the car, we all started tossing around names. Someone “checked” and found out she was a girl. Cici (Coastal Cleanup) was suggested, then Gregg said… “GARBAGE!”, it stuck.
At the vet we found out she didn’t like dogs or water. She was perfectly healthy for a stray. A few fleas, no worms or diseases. She’s 11-12 weeks old and tabby/calico mix. She kneads (makes biscuits) constantly. (Even her food while she eats, lol!)
She’s not a very hyper kitten, but we suspect she’s resting and eating from being famished. She likes fake mice toys, doesn’t like balls with bells, feathers or laser pointers. We bought her a little kitty house with a scratching post, a bed, and a litter box. (Once she gets the hang of that, I plan on teaching her how to use the toilet! I detest litter!)
We’ve made up some silly stories about her origin. She likes to pounce on her toys a lot, so we’ve joked about her killing all her brothers and sisters to survive. We kid about her being half bobcat.
The vet also said she’ll probably stay pretty little, she has teeny tiny paws. That’s why we got this awesome reflective collar with a bell, we’d probably loose her in our 1 bedroom apartment!
I think her favorite thing to do for now is circle Gregg’s neck and forehead bump him. It’s pretty cute, I’m glad we saved her life, and I hope everyone excuses me for the slew of kitten/cat pictures/videos from this point onward.
I’d also suggest volunteering to pick up trash, you find money and kittens. INSTANT KARMA!
I’m up early in the morning, and I’m dressed in black

he sold me a hard drive…so we banged
friend explaining how I’ll be when I end up the crazy old cat lady & bring dudes home from best buy (since my type is “nerds”)
since i got arrested, i’ve been outraged at the fines and stuff for other crimes. Getting a hooker, pleading guilty, costs 250 bucks. I paid 195 cause i was drunk, I could got a toothless bj for only like 55 bucks more
Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.

There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore, and who always will, so don’t worry about people from your past, there’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.
