So Scary

Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Hey peeps....please go to this site and put in your address to see all of the registered sex offenders in your neighborhood. It's really f'ing scary. My neighborhood: WAY too many for comfort! The good thing about this site is that you can click on the boxes and see a mugshot and what he was convicted for. For some reason, you can't save the picture or paste it correctly, but a lot of them are yellow (rape) and blue (sexual battery). May give you a good idea of where you can and can't walk at night.


My all-time favorite tv quote:

Saturday, February 25, 2006

This line is so me. It describes me so perfectly, and is one of the reasons I am a "Carrie."

"I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't live without each other love."
Carrie to Aleksandr in "Sex and the City, Season 6: An American in Paris part deux."
God, I love that line. It really describes what I want. When MU and I first met, I thought that was what I had found. I was giddy every time I thought of him. I am still looking for someone who feels this way about me.

SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - Irish rock group U2 gave a lesson in human rights and urged Brazilians to help end poverty in their country in a spectacular concert on Monday night at a Sao Paulo soccer stadium.
About 70,000 fans packed the Morumbi Stadium for the eagerly awaited show and the band delivered with a two-hour performance that mixed hard-edged rock with high emotion.
In a sequence of songs, lead singer Bono brought a political message to the crowd of mostly middle-class and wealthy Brazilians.
During "Miss Sarajevo," a song inspired by the Balkan Wars of the 1990s, clauses of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights were scrolled down in Portuguese on the huge digital screen behind the band.
They then launched into "Pride," their tribute to Martin Luther King, the slain U.S. civil rights champion of the 1960s.
Bono told the crowd: "Martin Luther King didn't just have an American dream, but an Irish dream, a Latin American dream ... sing for Peru, for Chile, for Argentina, for Brazil."
The screen then lit up with a display of the flags of all Latin American nations.
At the show's pre-encore climax with the song "One," an appeal for peace, Bono spoke over the music saying: "I love Brazil, I love Carnival, because everyone crams together -- rich and poor, young and old, left and right. But to beat poverty, all of us have to work together, to act together."
How much the message of peace and brotherhood got through was open to question. Mention of Argentina brought boos from the crowd. Some also jeered when pictures of Lula and U.S.
President George W. Bush' name appeared on the screen.
Bono ended the show with the appeal: "Pobreza Zero" (Zero Poverty), and thanked Lula for his hospitality.
The singer, a high-profile social activist who has met frequently with world leaders to plead the case of disadvantaged nations, had flown to the capital Brasilia on Sunday to talk to Lula. He praised him then as a hero for his social stands.
Bono will donate a guitar for auction to benefit Lula's Zero Hunger campaign, which aims to give all Brazilians three meals a day, the government's Agencia Brasil agency said on Monday.

Now, I'm as much for ending hunger as the next person, and I consider myself more on the liberal side, but is anyone else getting as tired of Bono's preachy activism as I am? I mean, we all know that you want to change the world, Bono, but I think that if people are shelling out serious $$$ to hear your music, maybe, I don't know, you should play more music and preach a little less. One of my co-workers saw U2 live when they played here in DC. She forked over $300 for tickets. Apparently, Bono spent most of the time spewing his political opinions. I know that, even though I am a democrat, I would have been extremely pissed if I paid that kind of money to hear U2 (who's music I love), and had to sit through Bono's political rant. I personally am tired of celebrities pushing their views on the rest of us. We pay money to hear them sing (or see them in movies), not to hear their opinions. It's great that they support worthy causes, but they seem to think that just because they are famous, everyone should listen to their opinions. And most of these public figures barely possess the intelligence to carry on a conversation that doesn't revolve around whether or not Lindsey Lohan's breasts are fake, let alone preach about world issues. This is especially annoying because of the number of people who are suffering in THIS country. But, apparently, hunger in the U.S. is a much less noble cause to these celebrities.
Sorry 'bout the rant, I'm just a little annoyed today. But I do feel much better, now that I have gotten that off my D-cups ( chest, that is).


Another year older....

Great weekend

Sunday, February 19, 2006

Hey all...I had such a good time this weekend with my mom. The spa was amazing, and Hershey is such a cute little town. The covers over the street lights are Hershey's Kisses! How cute is that?? Sorry about the quality of the pic- I took it with my phone.
And yes, Mike- I did get rubbed and it was incredible...almost better than sex. Almost..haha.


Have a great weekend!

Thursday, February 16, 2006

Hey peeps....I am out of town for the weekend- off to a spa to get scrubbed, rubbed, and pamperred. Yeah!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!


Woo Hoo!!!

Tuesday, February 14, 2006

I've been working out like crazy lately (in an effort to distract myself from my non-existant love life)- 60-75 minutes on the eliptical, 4-5 days a week, plus lifting 3 days a week. I'm finally starting to see results! Yeah! This morning I stepped on the scale and, lo and behold, I've lost 15 pounds now! Plus, I'm down 1 jeans size. That definitely brightened my Valentine's Day. Guess I'll need to go shopping.

All weekend, all I saw on tv were ads for valentine's day. Do we singles really need a reminder that we are alone? Another annoying reminder, as my friend Lauren pointed out, is that damn Pilsbury buscuit commercial- now they sell them in 2's, because, apparently, "everything is better in pairs." Thank-you, Pilsbury for rubbing salt in our wounds. Where's "Singles Day?" Where is the holiday that celebrates not being with someone. Or "Happy Lonely Day." Or "Congratulations on NOT settling Day." Or "Cat-Lady Day."


My Friday Morning

Friday, February 10, 2006

thanks to Mike for the pic (I "borrowed" it from one of his posts).

Hopefully, I'll have time to write tonight- yes, it's a Friday night and I'm staying in...I have no life.

Lately I've been very distracted by my personal life, and my work has been suffering. But no more!!!! Yesterday, a woman who is in my field and VERY high up in my company came to see my hotel. I had never spoken to or met her before, and was very surprised when I saw that she was not that much older than me. When I say very high up, I mean that she reports directly to a man who reports to the president of our company (one of the largest hotel companies worldwide).
Anyways, when she was introduced to me, she recognized my name. She said that she had heard about the project I was Beta-testing and the section of it that I was creating. We had lunch, and she asked me questions about myself and my career and goals, and even asked for my suggestions for putting more emphasis company-wide on my position. It was very re-assuring to know that someone in that position actually cares about employees. Prior to yesterday, I had started to feel like I was in a very under-appreciated position and was getting complacent.
So, I have decided to take a break from dating (and getting my heart broken), and focus my attention on my career. I think it is a much-needed break, especially since I am still reeling from the MU disaster, and dating anyone else right now just feels wrong. Until I am over him, or he comes back into my life (fat chance of that), I need to be by myself. Basically, I need to lock my heart away (for now) and not let anyone get to me.


Something every woman wants to hear

Friday, February 03, 2006

So my friend Jason posted something in the "who I'd like to meet" section of his MySpace page, and it was so great, I decided to re-post it on here (with the spelling and grammar corrected, because, hey, it's a compulsion- I can't help it). Although he is a friend and this is in no way a reference to me, it really got to me. Take note, guys, these are words every woman wants to hear:
"You... I know you are out there.. I might know you right now.. or I might bump into you at a bar.. maybe we are both on myspace right now.
When we meet.. We will both be a mess.. or maybe you are super sure of yourself.. Maybe I will be the one that will mend you.. but it will be a great fit..
We will hold each other down.. or push each other up at the right times.
You will be the 1st person I will turn to, to cry, and run to, to celebrate. Because both are better with you.
We will spend countless rainy days in bed dreaming and learning each other.
My hand will always find the small of your back.. your head will always find the nape of my neck.
we will have knock down drag out fights.. we will yell and be upset.. but at the end of the day i will always fall asleep with your head on my chest.
we watch each other grow old and fat but we will never really notice.. because we can't tell where your life ends my mine begins.
You are my friend , lover and partner in that order.
Hurry up and get here.. we have a lot of catching up to do. "

I think that any woman who reads that would have the same reaction: "Wow." They are simple thoughts, but you see guys, it's the little things that get us. A guy that is willing to open up like that and say something so beautiful will most definitely find the woman of his dreams.

Sometimes it's just that simple.
