How was your day? - Page 3

post #61 of 106
Risky,
I'd be willing to bet $5 that there are old codgers out there that want to "date" a woman who makes them feel comfortable...
Drool happens. :lips:
Sometimes more than others.
Even if you *don't* invest in the "structure"...

Risque- you too huh? maybe we DO need a CT dating service ?????
LOL
Sorry to have been so absentee the past couple months-- two things have occurred 1- we purchased some property in rural Trinity County, CA and are working on grading and prepping the land, plan to build a house over the next 2 years and then relocate there- so some weekends have been spent up there. 2- all my friends joined MySpace and I have spent my very short amount of computer time catching up with everyone there. SO, I will try to pop into CT more often- I miss it here!!! and I hope everyone is well.
Joe- the house should be done by now, right?

?. Which day?, the one where i missed a flight and ended up hanging out with Nine Inch Nails and talking to Trent Reznor, Rob Sheridan and Josh Freese. Or perhaps the one where i cooked for Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith from The Matrix). Or maybe the one where i worked at Correctional Services and made sure that the hardest working inmate got lunch.

By and by, they are all good. But the Mediation session in 2 weeks with the Ex Wife is gunna sux0r big time.

Well since I haven't dated AT ALL since '04...I have gotten my Degree, opened a shop and am trying to market my cakes for shipping ( erotic cheesecakes anyone? ) also trying to find time to do a line of PHOTO lolly pops for the Miami World Erotic Museum ( I think that's what it's called ) the chocolate melts and regular cookies don't really have the shelf life they need for display...

So, I'm pretty busy "sublimating"

LOL.........ppftttttttttttttttttt it doesn't work!! I posted my pic, (NOT a glamour shot...I got the dress in the mail that day, along with the shoes, clipped my hair back, added some red lipstick and was ready for photo shot in less than 5 min! and not even a .."not too shabby for an old lady!" comment! :crazy: lol

(but that's ok, I just posted really to introduce myself, by this point in time...too tired, burnt out and stress out to pay ANYONE, including myself any attention!! lol) BTW...it's also lovely to "see" who one is talking with!:)

I got the dress, because I was dating someone at the time and thought, YAY:bounce:...got me a date for New Years!! blah, the a$$hole was married!!!!!!!!!!:(

Hate to say it, but, I've given up on the romance thing. All that matters to me is when I meet a man...He has the cash to order one of my cakes!!!

Bwaaaaahahahahahahaaa:D

oy...my mother's bf is almost 55 and soon to retire, yes hes taking early retirement. For anyone on here who dosn't know, I'm not very fond of this prick, he has been high maintenance since day 1 needing my mother to take care of him more then she took care of me when I was a freaking baby. And the closer he gets to retirement, the worse it gets. I swear, I've never seen a grown up man needing so much mothering and worse yet, show such little respect for the person doing it. Its unfortunate I can't think of any justifiable homicide other then "ending a life that should never have happen"...I don't think the judge would buy that!

Crocs..

Ok,so I caved, due to disabling knee pain that I've been ignoring for years. (I'm like a body builder, work through the pain, no pain no gain! lol) I caved and got a pair of crocs.

I, for one, thought they are the UGLIEST shoes ever and anyone that I saw wearing them..immediately was divested of the shoes and beaten close to death for wearing them ( at least in my head..:crazy:)

But, I've been keeping my eyes open because I hear so many good things about them...( mind you, this here is a woman that used to wear shoes sizes too small because the cute pair I wanted in my size were sold out..So yeah, I have a shoe thing...or used to!)

my first knee surgery was recommended about 10 years ago, but I will never risk my knees ( a friend of mine started with lap knee surgery and now has 17 surgeries and scars all up and down his legs!!!:eek:)

Well, they have come out with a pair of Crocs that I feel that, ok, I can live with those...They are Mary Janes. They have a strap across the top arch of the foot and the toe area is not the size of Manatee flippers.

I bought a pair.

Wore them out of the store and around the house. Haven't noticed any difference....yet.

Am wearing them today at the shop, let's see, if my "sacrifice" of wearing ugly shoes for the benefit of my poor, long suffering knees will be rewarded with a good night's sleep. ( I can't/don't sleep because of the pain:()

Yeah, and I'm THAT vain...:crazy:


:):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

oh, yeah, the purpose of my post...anyone have any raves or rants on the Crocs?

Ooh Lah Lollies...

my new venture. I embarked on today. I didn't want to aggravate my knees, giving my new Crocs the benefit of the doubt so I decided to "play" with an idea.

I made some chocolate lollypops with my edible image printer. I flavored the white chocolate with a little cinnamon oil ( was using a "HOT" image, so needed a "HOT" flavor!!! )

and while I was trying to find a way of packaging them, The phrase "OH LA LA" kept going through my brain..

So...

Oooh Lah Lolly...or Ooh Lah Lollies ( plural..tee hee) emerged!

I posted them on my web site, when I get some PG ones made next week...Have 4 cakes to get out Saturday..including a Maltese dog wearing sunglasses! I will post.

I'm also going to play with making them out of the hard candy, like traditional Lollypops!!!

(See why I don't have time for romance? Too busy with an overactive brain..:lol:)

I'm with you there, Risque. I gave up on the romance thing some five years ago and have been happy ever since. :D
post #75 of 106
Awww... Come on ladies!!!

Giving up on romance???

Okay, I can understand the azz-ole factor on the married clown(s), and the needy types (got a BIL that fits that bill to a tee), but there just *HAS* to be a reasonably attractive, relatively finacially solvent, has his own car, not living with Mom, is somewhat conversant in subjects that interest you, hygenic (*NOT* Howard Hughes style [got one of those at the office]), and a decent dancer *SOMEWHERE* out there!!!

Granted, they may be difficult to locate, and the women who *HAVE* found one (or two, depending upon their tastes or stamina) probably aren't sharing their success stories or hunting tips, but I implore you to keep your mind, eyes and ears open just in case Prince Sortacharming trips in front of you at the local grocery store...

Ya never know!!!

Gotta go check out some new Ooh-La-Lollies!!!

DMT, you're too funny...nah don't expect to "trip" over anyone nor expect Prince Sortacharming to come knocking..I belive in being "PROACTIVE" in my life...( do not have a "victim" mentality...what doesn't kill me..may kick my butt...but it will ALWAYS make me a better person!) Lol

But, YES...check out my Ooh La Lollypops and let me know what you think. Always on the look out for constructive critisism ( blah ..however that's spelled!) to improve my skills.

My next project for the Ooh La Lollypops are the hard candy Lollies! Already found a market for them!! (The Miami Museum of Erotic Art will take them to see if they sell!!!)

Took a gander at your Lollies, and I think you may have a hit (with a possibly small, but tasteful crowd)!!! How about a Lolly for Him with a sort of pencil eraser type protrusion from the center, (dark pink) with Braille stuff around it??

Remember Arte Johnson from Laugh In??

"Hey little girl, wanna piece of hard candy??"

WHACK!!! (good ol' Ruth Buzzy...)

Yeah, I run into that a lot down here in South Beach and in Miami Beach they are eighter Newlywed or Nearly Dead! :roll:




Risque- the Lollies sound wonderful!!

Jayme, the chocolate lollies are a hit, after I made them for the photos, I gave them away to different clients with their orders and they are over the moon. I now have to make the hard candy ones! I have an email to a good friend of mine a Canadian Sugar Artist

Jeffery E.R.C. Kincaellan - Pastry Chef and Sugar Sculptor, Specializing in pulled and blown sugar production

for guidance, check out his website, he is great, wonderful, sharing and writing a Sugar Art book for the sugar challenged!!! and he's about to pack up his kit to do some traveling instructions.




so how are the Crocs???

The Crocs? so far so good...but wearing them is a bit depressing. The fit is supposed to be loose so when I get a little tired and become lazy about lifting my feet, they sort of make a shuffle, shuffle sound on the ground...sort of the Thorazine shuffle of mental institutions in the '70's..hahahahaha. Very depressing for someone that is used to the Click Clack of expensive stilettos on flooring ( Croc's cost me $29.99/39.99 pretty good investment!!) Buuuuuuuuuut...so far, I've been actually been able to sleep pretty good at night without my legs and knees having their own party where "PAIN" is the guest of honor! They still hurt a bit, but I think its because I waited too long to give in, but as they get used to the shoes...I'm having more hours of interrupted sleep.

I hate taking meds of any kind, so I was just "toughing out" the pain! lol

I ran off with the mailman ;-)

They are out there, trust me. Talk about stamina :bounce:

He cooks, he cleans, he gives me kisses on my shoulder in the morning. He's intelligent, stubborn, and we work out together.... Yes, he's a muscle man and we occaisionally spar :rolleyes:. He jokes that he clubbed me over the head and drug me to his cave ha ha ha.

Yes I did go look at his work/art. Truly facsinating what some folks can do. The colors, details, and textures look spectacular.

And in keeping with dragging minds out of the gutter, glow sticks would be horribly inefficient for a static display. I'd recommend going with a low voltage light system, such as used in those little Christmas display things (Area/Store/??? 54 figurines and town stuff). They have a 5 volt or less power supply with super tiny lights, some in a Christmas Lights arrangement. You can get a look at their stuff at a Lowe's around Halloween (or whenever XMas stuff gets out on the shelves in your area)...

Joe,
Thanks!! SWMBO says "Howdy", too. But I think she's about to start harping on getting that ceiling re-textured. I better go make garage noises... :o

Free,
Some are better than others. I'm workin' up to "adequate"... ;)
Are you in the central area (as opposed to east, west, north, south)?? Like say, Encanto?? Just curious, not stalking... :eek:

Botanique,
Sorry if my referrence to "stamina" was mildly obtuse... I was inferring that some of the ladies out there are a bit selfish, and maintaining, um, "relationships", (yeah, that's it, "relationships!!") with more than one member of a masculine persuasion. Um, to clarify that -: properly "equipped"; according to code; anatomically correct; unaltered... (oh man, this ditch is getting deeper by the second...) :o

well, I would leave the logistics to the SUGAR BOY! He's the expert in that area..lol, all I did was visualize...lol...how he does it..well, "snot my job!"

The thing about SUGAR BOY is that he is modest, kind and very sharing too! someone should invite him to join..lol

crocs....live in them.....I've got 7 colors. BUT hard plastic super berkinstocks with insoles are better on my knees, if I've got a long day Berk's it is.

A few years ago I catered Venus Envy event......
mussels in cream sauce
asparagus spears with cream dip
grapes with blue cheese aka blue balls
wild shroom tarts
nipples of Africa......snobbinettes with chambord mousse topped with a glazed raspberry

boy did I have fun with that menu.

my late boyfriend of 9 years was 21 years older, had a very deep wine cellar, fun sense of humor and this great twinkle in his eyes. The last couple years of his life were a gift we didn't expect to have.....not every prince charming is the same, just depends on where you're looking and what you're looking for.....
