The Nominees:


The 3 questions I had to answer:

If you could meet any person in history and take them to dinner, who would that person be?

Richard Pryor. His comedy, like his life was interesting. I would love to just chill and chat with the man that said If I thought about it, I could be bitter, but I don’t feel like being bitter. Being bitter makes you immobile, and there’s too much that I still want to do.”


Do you think money can make you happy, or happier?

Money can make me happier than I already am by allowing me access to things that could help me help both myself and others. Trips, fancy clothes and the like are all nice, but it’s the security that comes with knowing that I have enough or more than enough to enjoy the things I want that feels good. As long as my needs are met, I can have my fun.


What is your idea of paradise?

Paradise is often seen as an escape from the norm. Paradise for me, is knowing that the people I love are happy and enjoying life. Being able to love and enjoy experiences I’ll never forget with the people worth sharing them with is my idea of paradise.


My 3 questions:

  1. What do you love to do?
  2. What would you do if you had more guts?
  3. When have you felt the most passionate and alive?

5 Years With WordPress


Where did the time go?

Where did the time go?

5 Years, ladies and gents! I’ve been writing about life, love, laughter and the random thoughts that pop into my wandering mind for 5 years (on WordPress). First off, thank each and every one of you for reading, commenting, emailing, and befriending me over the years. Knowing that someone gets what I’m putting down or even that they have questions about it is really encouraging.

1443994325454I had to step away for a moment to make way for other experiences, and I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve written about the ins and outs of my life, so here goes. As some of you may or may not know I have been doing Background Acting (aka an Extra) for a while now, and things have picked up. I have been able to travel to cool venues, meet awesome people and to tip toe into the world of film and television that I’ve always loved. Now my Mother gets to me see as a Lawyer, Police Officer, Doctor and a plethora of other things. But more importantly she gets to see me being happy.

At some point I realized that I wasn’t happy doing what I was doing, I was stressed and “creatively bankrupt”. I feel alive more than ever these days, and it’s because of a shift I had to make. Sure things didn’t always work out, but I learned and grew. When I was younger I was afraid to try and fail at things, now that irrational fear has been washed away, allowing me to simply try.

14421656598781For about the past 4 months I have been pursuing Voice Acting. I have always been curious about Voice-Over Artists and being able to give a voice to something. So I finally told myself that I had nothing to lose, only something to gain by giving this a try. I picked up some books like Voice-Over, Voice Actor by Yuri Lowenthal & Tara Platt, a Blue Spark Digital Microphone and some other equipment as I went along. I auditioned for a couple audio, original animation, fan dub, and video game projects. I have had the pleasure of laying down vocals for a few projects, some I can’t talk about yet, but there is one that I can and will mention in detail in another post.

I say all of that to say this. In the 5 years that I have been with you guys & girls on WordPress, I have gone through various transitions in life. From a 9 to 5 office job to Background Acting, from being single to being lost in love and back to being (happily) single.

My readers, my friends, you saved me. I only hope that at some point I was able to save you as well. Whether I made you smile, laugh, or aroused (it’s a possibility), I am glad that you let me into your life, even if it was just for a minute. Being able to connect with someone is a blessing and a privilege.

Here's to 5 years!!!!!

When To Put Down The Pen


1) You’ve had more than enough characters running around in your head.

2) The cramps in your style outweigh the cramps in your hand.

3) There’s nothing more you can say. Every detail seems lackluster & understated.

4) It’s time to put down the pen when you can do so with ease. The addiction has lost its appetite.

5) If you don’t care about the misstakes you’ve obviously made, u should stop.

6) Recklessly excessive use of unnecessary words is a major sign you’ve gone over the deep end. Word porn can be annoying.

Disclaimer: I am not “putting down the pen”.

So That’s How You Found Me


I love you guys, but I just have to ask one question:

Okay, which one of you found my blog while searching for “playgirl men erection video”?

What? Why!? How!??

What? Why!? How!??

I’m SERIOUS.
This is one of the search terms for today that my WordPress stats showed me.
I actually can’t stop laughing at this search result. I’ll admit I’m confused, but also oddly amused.

Facebook Politics


I have a confession to make. Sometimes I’ll “like” a post before I’ve even read it and then I read through it & think:

“This is horrible! Why would you say something like that!? I don’t agree with that at all, BUT I already liked it… Its too late to “unlike” it, everyone will know!”

When in reality no one beside the poster will notice a damn thing. But my panic is in overdrive when people do this to my posts:

Like. Unlike. Like.

If I happen to be viewing this anomaly as it happens, all I can do is scream at the screen saying:

“Quit messing with my feelings! My feelings… Its a “Like” button, not a Clit, you press it once & forever hold your peace! I will find you!”

And after calming down I just assume that WordPress/Facebook was lagging, so the button was pressed repeatedly. Or maybe, just maybe you can’t decide if you love or hate this post. And that makes me giggle.

In the real world Facebook politics would & probably have gotten somebody killed.

Poking:
Why are you poking me man!? You know I don’t roll like that. What are you poking at anyway!?

Girl why are you poking me, you know my girl is gonna snap when she sees you doing that to me? But you poke me so good girl.

(Why are you poking me, do you want my attention or do you want me to poke you with something?)

Like Button
Do you actually have something to say? I was asking a question & all I got was a “Like”, what am I supposed to do with that?

I am in pain & you “Like” that!? You are some sick *bleeps*!

(Some things are not meant to be “liked”. Some things need an answer or comment as opposed to an absent minded button press.)

Sharing
That was meant just for you girl & you shared it with EVERYBODY. Why would you do that?

(Have you ever shared something you weren’t supposed to?)

Tagging
I’m calling you out man! You were here with that girl at this bar at this time.

Oh… Oh wait, sorry, you didn’t want your business put out there like that. Whoops! Too late bro, I think that she knows. Oh, oh, she knows, she knows! My bad!!

(If you don’t want people knowing where you are or you are a cheater this feature will mess you up SO fast!)

Status Updates
Relationship Status: Its complicated with Teri Jensen

Status: I can’t stand U sometimes!

1 hour later…

Relationship Status: Married to CDN Stormlover

Status: Girl you are so fine, you know you got it like that. I LUV u boo.

10 minutes later…

Relationship Status: Single

Status: I hate when bitches bitch about other bitches bitching. Why are U putting my business out there @Teri Jensen!? GOD, some people!

I’m making a PB&J sandwich & then hopping on Twitter!

(The truth of the matter is you put your business out there & got caught cus you are dumb! And I don’t care about your sandwich or Twitter since you use Facebook as though it were Twitter anyway!)

It’s no freaking wonder people get into fights over dumb shit on Facebook or “Stalkerbook” as its also called.

Sigh…

What’s your Facebook beef?

P.S. Teri & Lee were just used as examples. No one was harmed during the making of this post (yet) & all examples were works of fiction or based on other peoples misfortunes, not my own (yet).
