I think one of the very hardest things for me, and I assume for Sean as well being so far from friends and family, is finding good friends to confide in and be emotionally present when needed. As things like adulthood, relationships, work, travel, and life in general seem to create huge chasms between those I was once close to and me, practically everyone I know is closer to "acquaintance" than "friend" status these days. Don't get me wrong, you guys are wonderful and I absolutely <3 you (well, some of you :p) but its difficult for me not having almost a soul in the world to confide in for one reason or another - many of which I'm sure I'm to blame for - when I feel like I'm either bursting or falling apart at the seams because of whatever is going on in my life at the time. I know a lot of you can relate. Well, at least we're not alone. Oh, and don't worry; I'm doing just fine right now. Its just a thought I've been having lately but hadn't managed to put into words until just now.

Got some good deals today at Savers and Desert Industries thrift stores including lots of things to resell for lots of profit, a big black rug for $5, and a brand new microwave that's huge and actually worth a lot of money for just $2. We might resell the microwave but not sure yet as our downstairs one recently broke and we've never had one we could heat this much food in at once before. Lol We'll have to see!

Also, MRI and EEG results both came back normal, just as I expected. Damn headache doctor doing too much. I just want something simple to get rid of the pain - not all these extras! :p

4th of July [Jul. 6th, 2017|02:50 am]

From my Facebook post: 4th of July was fairly quiet compared to events here maybe 6 or 7 years ago but by 2017 standards just getting one or two friends out is pretty damn good for us. XD Either way, I had a lot of fun bbq'ing, watching and doing fireworks, drinking, and even dance gaming with Sean Gr, A-Meijin Phil, John Luxom, and Michael Wenz. Thanks so much to all of you for hanging out and making my holiday not suck! In fact, Sean and I managed to get friends over 3 nights in a row ending with the 4th thanks to Dylan Mauceri, Mari G, John Beckand those mentioned above for coming to visit us. Really nice seeing and catching up with old friends as well as making new ones. Should we push our luck and try for another night of hanging out this weekend so we can make lots of food with Gordon Louie, Daniel Gonzales, and whatever other big fat fatties want to come pack on the pounds with us??

I'm weak. A few days ago, it wastry and eat every fucking thingin existencetime. Who givesa shit about nutritional value or if it barely qualifies as "food"? Now its attempt to stain every pair of pantsin the house time. Fuck it! Red's my favorite color anyway. The rough partis what comes next: the constant distractionof urges to get my achy insides pointlessly pounded raw because my body is too fucking stupidto takea hint and realize ITS NOT GONNA WORK - NOT NOW, NOT EVER. Jesus Christ. I'ma fucking slave to these bullshit hormones and for what?! So my body and try and get itself impregnateddespite the fact that thatoption's already completelyoff the table? Whata goddamn waste.

Fun night at home last night! [Jul. 3rd, 2017|09:43 pm]
jokr_aleta

Last night was TOO crazy with Mari G, John Beck, John Luxom, A-Meijin Phil, Dylan Mauceri, and Sean! I think I had more fun than at most of the huge get togethers we used to host. Who says you need tons of people to have a great time? We played practically every arcade machine in the house for the first time in forever, played tons of weird Japanese and American dance and other games on the PS2, played with our VR headsets, drank LOADS of EVERY type of alcohol, had hookah (Mari's first time! And don't worry, parents, no drugs or anything like that in it. :p), tried a very old cigar Sean bought in Mexico YEARS ago, played around on all the exercise equipment, got a damn good workout, climbed all over the stripper pole, attempted cooking (Sean managed to feed us all with tasty roast potatoes!), and who even knows what else? Not me!I'm struggling just to remember those bits. XD I got so caught up in the fun I forgot to take pics of anything other than the two bottles of Cali booze John and Mari brought to share! Btw thanks to everyone for coming by and for all the treats you guys brought to share. We ended up with a pretty good assortment of beverages and edibles between us all! I can't believe a couple of you stuck it out with us til after like 7am. We spent nearly half a day with some of you. You guys are troopers! Can't wait to do it again!

Pat Griffin has passed away [Jun. 29th, 2017|05:08 pm]
jokr_aleta

Sean and I just got the news. We lost a very special, wonderful, generous, and loving person today. She had been battling cancer for a long time and I'm so glad she's not in pain anymore but it doesn't make it any less tragic. She was so alive before it got the better of her. She still had so much she wanted to see and do. She felt strongly that life was not something to be wasted. In honor of Pat Griffin, go make the most of the time life's given you. We love you, Pat, and the impact you've had on us and everyone lucky enough to know you will last lifetimes.

Word of the day sent me ten quotes today. Of them, these two stood out:

"Surround yourself with people that reflect who you want to be and how you want to feel, energies are contagious." -Rachel Wolchin

"When you start seeing your worth, you'll find it harder to stay around people who don't."  -Unknown

$50 Costume Contest Winnings at Gold Spike! [Jun. 23rd, 2017|11:34 pm]

Just in our usual attire, Sean and I managed to scoop $50 cash in the couples costume contest at Gold Spike here in Vegas the other night! The occasion: the Down & Derby: Falling in Love couples skate night Gold Spike hosted this past Wednesday. They have a twice-monthly skate night there with free admission and free skate rental (though we brought our own rollerblades). This time, it was couples night and they had a couples costume contest accordingly. Just quickly throwing on some crap we already had at home, rather than making or buying anything, we won 2nd place as horse and cowgirl. As if riding Sean wasn't reward enough on its own! <3 Best part: we pretty much got paid $50 to spend the night drinking whiskey (our own, brought from home) and skating. It was outdoors too so we got pretty sweaty and got a damn good workout. Back in Vegas, working hard! Yee-haw!

Record Temperature Heat [Jun. 23rd, 2017|12:39 pm]

Stolen from Las Vegas Review Journal:

"Las Vegas has never been hotter.

The temperature hit 117 degrees at 4:07 p.m. Tuesday, tying the all-time high, according to the National Weather Service.

The city had only been as hot three other times: June 30, 2013; July 19, 2005; and July 24, 1942. This is the earliest it happened."

...

"The weather records started to fall before dawn on the last day of spring. The Tuesday morning low of 88 degrees at the valley’s official weather station at McCarran International Airport eclipsed the previous mark of 86 as the highest overnight low for June 20 in Las Vegas, meteorologist Barry Pierce said.

Then, when the temperature hit 116 just before 4 p.m., it officially became the hottest June 20 on record, breaking the previous mark of 115 set last year.

The normal high for this date is 100."

Should be fun paying the power bill this year! XD

This should go without saying but by this point in life I'm well aware that things that should happen and things that do happen are often not one in the same: I care about the rights of all living beings. Of course, being who I am means that I will not only be more aware of certain matters than others but that some will hit closer to the heart and perhaps get me more heated. This is natural and, in my opinion, not something you can wrong me for. No one is obligated to fight the battles of others. Sometimes it may be the right thing to do, other times it may enough to just not stand in their way, and other times still it may be necessary to oppose them to uphold your own beliefs. We should keep in mind that each person sees and valuesthings differently and the instances and amounts in which they step in should be very much at their own discretion. I do my best to equally stand up for anyone and anything I find being wronged. Ibelieve what Ido to be enough and don'tbelieve Ishould be criticized for wanting to spend theremainder of my timeliving my own life. Everyone needs a hand sometimes but I'vefought most of my own battles through the years without a great deal of outside help and Iexpect others to striveto do the same. (Keep in mind that Isaid, "strive to" as Ido not want to argue over statements of the obvious which I've intentionally omitted.)
