Good morrow, fair people.  I trust we all made it through the weekend with all limbs attached and no debt to the bail bondsman??

I've always loved the group Blue October.  Especially this song.  Stupid video, great song.  I really can't say why, but I listened to them alot during the time in my life a few years ago when I started to get my head straight and realize I really can change my life and my circumstances, and that I don't have to live unhappy or be treated horribly.

Another favorite group of mine is Dashboard Confessional.  My all time favorite song by them is this one, but they have so many good ones.

I guess I like out of the ordinary music because I myself am an odd duck.  Idk.

Someone in my life just sent me a text that was so incredibly touching, it made me totally tear up.  Brought tears to my eyes, literally.  Amazing person.  I am so blessed to know this person and be part of their life, I cannot begin to explain.

I've never liked Meatloaf.  The singer.  I don't like meatloaf, the food either, unless I make it so it has lots of good spicy stuff in it, like Rotel hot or something.

When I was younger, there was a little place in Monterey near the wharf where a good gal friend of mine and I would meet every Tuesday and eat Mongolian Beef.  It was the best best best food ever in the world.  It was a little place called Tsing Tao's, and you had to know where it was and walk down this little back alley thing to find the entrance.  The hallway you walked down to get to the restaurant had a ceiling that was so low, even I had to sort of duck, and I am only five six!!  Incredible food though.  I took Mister Wonderful there one time, just after we met, and he proceeded to eat everything, even the red chili pepper pods in the Mongolian Beef.  Now theres a mistake you will only ever make once!!!

I've tried many many places since moving from Cali, and never found another restaurant that comes close to making Mongolian Beef as good as Tsing Tao's.

The caramel corn at Oscar Hossenfelder's was the bestest in the westest too.  The hand carved carousel was absolutely stunning as well.  Lot's of neat little shops to wander through.

Ok, gotta get back to work.  Have a fab day, all.


  1. Texts can be such a tricky thing; my husband and I have had more tiffs via texting because they're just so difficult conversationally. On the flip side, however, I've received some of the kindest, most supportive, loving texts at times that do the same....make me tear up and simply feel a little hugged. I think it's the simplicity of the unexpected word....=)

    The husband usually texts some shopping list for the grocery that has exotic stuff on it....that I can't find....pfft.

    Blue October's song about the cockroaches is like a scene from "Phantom of the Opera." I want to get up and leave...but I just can't 'til it's over.

  2. Obi, the song you are referring to is titled "Hate Me" and you are right, it is a tough song to listen to, but a powerful song in it's own right. Addiction is a terrifying thing, impossible to understand. The addict is trapped in a slippery sided well of demons, and those who watch them go through it drown right along with them. I love that song. It's a good one, for sure.
