No Football for Me This Weekend

February 2, 2018 // Posted in Fun, Life, Travel (Tags: , , ) |  No Comments

It’s Super bowl 2018 weekend, but this post isn’t going to be about football. In fact, since I don’t care about either team at all, I’m not going to waste my time watching the game. I have too much to do around the house this weekend.

My friends who live in Minneapolis rented out their house to someone traveling to town to attend the super bowl.  They rented through Air BNB.  After looking into it, I found that Air BNB is a neat idea about renting rooms or houses, and was initially started by two guys who couldn’t afford the rent on their loft apartment.  The initial idea was to put an air mattress on the floor in their living room of their San Francisco loft and making it into a Bed and Breakfast.

The concept has expanded to people renting their entire houses, apartments, private rooms, castles, boats, tree houses, tipis, igloos and private islands!  How cool would it be to rent a private island?

The guests have to complete a profile including a photo so that the homeowners get to “meet” the guests a head of time.

The homeowner is advised to have insurance covering damage by guests but Air BNB also offers $1,000,000 in secondary coverage which covers for damage including vandalism and theft.

I had another friend that used Air BNB to stay in an awesome townhouse for a celebratory weekend in New York City.  I haven’t used it myself but it seems like a great concept and something I’d use if I was traveling.

Dream Meanings

June 20, 2017 // Posted in Fun, Health, Life (Tags: ) |  No Comments

I had the strangest dream last night and I’m trying to remember it so I can write it down.  I know it involved traveling to the wedding of a lady that I know is already married (in real life).  I’m sure more details will come to mind as I go about my day.  I was curious though, so I went online and found a website called dreamforth.com that interprets your dreams.  I typed in, “travel to wedding” and the results were as follows:

“To dream of a wedding indicates your life is about to change.  An aspect of your waking life is ending but another is about to begin.  In many cases, you may feel negatively about the wedding you see in your dreams.  This is typically meant to bring to mind a fear or anxiety from your waking life.  You may have feelings of sorrow, or a loved one may soon pass”.

WOW! That is really spot on as I’ve dealt with a lot of loss, disappointment,  fear and anxiety over the last year.

Isn’t it fun to try to interpret your dreams?  I thought I would like to dream about laughing until I looked up the interpretation.  Dreaming of laughing may indicate stress or tension.  Seeing other people laugh is a message to give yourself a break and be more playful in your waking life.  Seeing someone laughing at you implies social anxiety and the need to be mentally kinder to yourself.

I think I will keep a dream notebook near my bed and pay more attention to what is taking place in my dreams.

Countdown to Christmas

December 20, 2016 // Posted in Good Food, Life, Party (Tags: , ) |  No Comments

Here it is Tuesday, only 5 days from Christmas. Let me tell you, I am counting down the days. Not because I am excited about Christmas. I pretty much have the holiday on ignore at home. Don’t have a tree up, no lights on the bushes and trees, no wreath on the door. I am counting down the days because I just want this Hell Week over with.

If you have ever worked in retail over the Christmas holidays, you probably understand what I’m saying. The week gets busier and busier. Shopper get more and more frantic. Tempers are short, lines are long, and all I want to do is crawl home each night, take a hot bath and go to bed. Some nights I don’t even eat dinner. I’m too tired.

Tomorrow I am going to call my mom and check on her. Make sure she is OK and is ready for the holiday. She is not cooking a big family dinner this year. She has been sick so much that she just doesn’t have the strength to deal with cleaning the house and cooking all that food and hosting a bunch of people at her house all day. My sister is going to host the dinner at her house this year and everyone has been asked to bring a covered dish to help with the food. That’s all fine with me. I am going to be so tired that bringing something that I can pick up already cooked on Saturday when I take my lunch break and carry it with me on Sunday is all I can handle.

Bored Tonight? Try a Sex Chat

July 12, 2013 // Posted in Fun, Life, Love (Tags: , , ) |  No Comments

Every once in a while my plans for the night get changed or canceled. It really sucks to be all dressed up with no place to go. And sometimes it is so late at night that you really don’t have anyone else to call at the last minute and invite out. Or something happens so you can’t go out at all and you are stuck at home for the night.

If I’m bored and stuck at home, I try a sex chat for a couple of hours. I can fix myself a nice cold drink, sit down on the couch, enter a chat room from my laptop and start talking to people. I’ve “met” some great people on the chat lines, people with a great sense of humor, people who have the gift of gab, people who can make me laugh. When I’ve had enough fun, I click it off and get myself to bed – usually with a smile on my face and a little skip or two on the way down the hallway.

Crazy as Shit Party Last Night

December 23, 2012 // Posted in Fun, Life, Music (Tags: , , , ) |  No Comments

Last night was our big company Christmas party. With the bad economy and all the shit going on this past year, with lay offs and our fucking CEO replaced with this new guy, I wasn’t sure how this party thing was going to play out.

Last year we had the party at the big Sheraton hotel downtown. We had the big ballroom and open bar and a live band. This year was nothing like it. Instead of at a hotel we had a big fancy dinner at an old restaurant downtown. They gave us our own private room at the restaurant and we all got to order whatever we wanted from the menu. So of course, most of the people ordered an expensive steak and some guys even ordered surf and turf. If we wanted a mixed drink we had to pay for it ourselves – that really sucked. But the tightwads did at least pay for a few bottles of wine that were on each table. So we had some spirits and people like me who love wine were able to drink plenty because some people don’t really like wine and they forfeited their shares.

There were not big speeches or anything, just everyone eating dinner and talking amongst ourselves. Dessert was pecan pie and coffee, and after that all the executives left and went home. But the rest of us who wanted to party longer went down to the basement nightclub and took over the joint. They had a pretty good DJ who was taking requests and the place had a couple of other small groups there for company parties like ours. We all just hit the dance floor and cut loose.

The guys in the sales department started throwing around their company credit cards and buying drinks for everyone, so some of them got really fucked up drunk and started doing stupid shit on the dance floor. Have you ever seen an old white man try to break dance? It was hilarious!

Turned out to be a crazy ass party once the ivory tower guys left us alone to our own devices. I have a hangover from hell because I drank so much wine, but it was a good time and I don’t give a fuck if anyone at the office is embarrassed on Monday. We saw some crazy shit – but that will give us all something to laugh about for a long time into the new year.
