what if...

what would I wish for?
if things radically changed...
what more could you give?

Really cool posters at

crap, crap, crap...

I should have stayed gone... should have never come back. Everything sucks!
I feel abandoned, betrayed... lonely.

you could lie, just once
a dream world I don't live in
just a fantasy

feed me...

to catch a glimpse though
or to hear the voice again
smile once more for me
think of the moments
their ethereality
gossamer touches

I'm Baaaaaaaaaack...

Did you miss me? Did you even notice I was gone?

Well, it seems Bopkatz noticed. Dude... I'm glad you missed me, but chill okay?
Yes, well... it's back to the old grind.

I've been at our Virginia State H.O.G. Rally and I had a blast! Three days and nights of bikes, buds, fun and general revelry. I don't think I slept 4 hours total the whole time. All my favorite buds were there... including Skinny Bitch, Baby Gurl and The Saint. Also some you haven't met yet, I'll be introducing them in the days to come.

I got to sing a little the first nite as there was a Karaoke Contest of sorts. It's a damned good thing it was on Thursday 'cause I lost my voice shortly after that from all the laughing and yelling.

Okay, gotta go back to work tomorrow. And I'm at a real Sleep Deficit, so I'm off to bed. I'll post more about the rally soon.

OH BTW (that's pc speak for "By The Way")... if you're ever in Lynchburg, VA, be sure to check out the Jazz Street Grill... FABULOUS FOOD!

So, Bopkatz... am I off the hook with the Blogging Cops??

for P.M.

Do You Have A Little Time
If you're feeling low and lost today
You're probably doing too much again
You spend all your hours just rushing around
Do you have a little time
Do you have a little time for me?
Slow down my love you're confusing me
If you're feeling stressed just try calling
You spend your time waiting for anyone to see
Do you have a little time
Do you have a little time for me?
If you should stop for a while
You will find me standing by
Over here at the side of your life
I'd like to hold you still, remind you of all you've missed
If you have a little time
If you have a little time that is
Why do you still run when you could walk with me
Life will pass you by when you move this quickly
What can you see when you're spinning around
Do you have a little time
Do you have a little time for me
If you should stop for a while
You will find me standing by
Over here at the side of your life
I like to hold you still, remind you of all you've missed
If you have a little time
If you have a little time that is
If you let me listen I'll make you feel clear
You spend your time waiting for anyone to see
If you should stop for a while
You will find me standing by
Over here at the side of your life
I'd like to hold you still, remind you of all you've missed
If you have a little time
If you have a little time that is
If you should stop for a while
You will find me standing by
Over here at the side of your life
I'd like to hold you still,
remind you of all you've missed
If you have a little time
If you have a little time that is

The next Scarpetta installment...

Just started this one:

WOW! I received this email today (names have been changed to protect... yada yada):

Morning Peg,
I wanted to let you and "Jim" know I successfully took the written motorcycle test at the DMV yesterday morning ( Monday). I am now a licensed motorcyclist in the great state of Virginia. As soon as I got home from there I completed a pre-inspection of my bike to make sure it has been staying worthy since I purchased it 3 months ago, back on April 8th. For the first time I went out for a short pleasant ride to celebrate and I don't think there could have been anything in this world that could take the smile off of my face from waiting soooooo long! I about tripled my mileage on the odometer. I am up to 18 miles now.WOW... the early break-in is 50 for my Sportster and then next step is 500. Guess the town where I live is going to see a lot more of me now.
I want to thank both you and Jim for the outstanding work you both did helping not only myself but all who were in your class. You both are "TOP GUN" in my book. My exact thoughts are even if I had not passed the course, the hands on training and instructions were priceless and well taught by the best people around!
Again, I wish to thank you both and want you all to know you have helped set in
stone the basic tools I need to be a good and safe motorcyclist.



Please forward this message on to "Jim".

Gee, I guess the class went better than I thought! I feel GREAT!

Updates... motorcycles and massage

Whew.... busy weekend. I taught a motorcycle class and it was pretty good. But most of the students had a real fear of MOVING, more than 2 mph that is. Geez. Did you know that motorcycles don't like going slooooow? Nope, they sure don't... they tend to fall over when they go slow. Gravity... it's the LAW! Ah well, all but two students passed and the two that didn't were greatly improved by the end of the weekend. I hope they come back and take the class again.

A while ago I was whining (yes... WHINING) and then I forgot to update you. My Spa Night on Thursday was wonderful. I think he removed every hair on my body... well, not the ones on my head. And then the massage! Ah, it was fabulous!

I had gotten some bad news earlier in the day and I was feelin' pretty damned bad. But the massage made me feel much better. He virtually massaged my cares away.
... the man is a virtuoso, a true savant.

Remember Miss T?

Remember this haiku? Well, here is My "T" (yes, the skinny lil bitch).
I've done all my best buddies as SouthPark Characters... and you KNOW you will see them all... don't you?

I'm a pepper, he's a pepper, she's a pepper.....

I like Diet Dr. Pepper. And I love new Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper (now that's a mouthful)!
I have a very good friend, he's married to "Baby Gurl"... we call him "the saint" (that's a story for later... suffice it to say, being married to the Baby Gurl is a job unto itself).

Anyway, "the saint" tasted my Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper (whew) and he made a awful face and now whenever he sees me drink the stuff he makes fun of me (it's okay dear reader, I can take it... I'm tough). Actually, I'd drink it now just to mess with him even if I didn't like it so much.

I found this cool product review blog today, The Impulsive Buy, and in it's archives is a review of ... you guessed it... Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper.
So there, Mr. Saint... vindication!

Here are my Southpark versions:

"Baby Gurl" and "the Saint"

fun, PMS, depravity... OH MY!

if you read yesterday's haiku (you DID didn't you?)... I'm feeling much better now. Really! The world is a much brighter place today. Well, my world is anyway. And that's what counts... hehe.

I thought about apologizing for the "downer" moods that I have from time to time. Then I thought, screw that!

This is MY blog, a look into MY psyche... with all the fun, terror, hilarity, silliness, ups, downs, PMS, and depravity one could need.

So, brave soul, continue to come visit here... PLEASE!

will you just leave me?
will all happiness take flight?
has the knell sounded?

from the Latin secretus...

Have you seen Postsecret? Some of the secrets are just plain funny, but some are haunting. I was thinking... do I have a secret to share? But you know... I can't imagine having any secret that I couldn't at least share with my best friends. They know me so ... well... intimately. So, I realized the worst part about the site is that these people don't have ANYONE to share the dark corners of their souls with... no one at all. That is the truly SAD part.

haiku confidant
tell you my innermost thoughts
my trust is complete

windows to the soul?

looking in your eyes
I could live there forever
basking in your warmth

From Potter's Field by Patricia Cornwell

Another Kay Scarpetta Mystery...
so far, I think I've enjoyed The Body Farm the most.
So now, I need to read this. It looks really interesting.

some favorite quotes...

"life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away" -anonymous

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." -Jack Kerouac

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.

"For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination." -Souza
And my all time Favorite:

"Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn-out, shouting,
"Holy shit! What a ride!" -Unknown

think of your strong hands
moving all over my skin
massaging my soul

Massage Slut!

I'm bummed out!
This Thursday should be my regular Spa Day but due to circumstances beyond anyone's control (so a bunch of punk kids have to graduate from highschool... so what?), it has to be postponed until next week. DAMN!
I've been thinking about it since... well... since the last time actually.

Have you ever found something you liked SO much that you wanted to do it everyday? Yet at the same time... you were afraid it would become blasé. So part of you pines away for that something and the other part of you is thrilled that the anticipation makes you virtually BUZZ with excitement. Ain't duality grand? Or... maybe it's schizophrenia!

Quote for the day!

Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.
