I must say this is quite true

You're an Expert Kisser

You're a kissing pro, but it's all about quality and not quantity
You've perfected your kissing technique and can knock anyone's socks off
And you're adaptable, giving each partner what they crave
When it comes down to it, your kisses are truly unforgettable

Knock Knock

I found an old knock, knock joke book I had when I was young. Here is just a sampling of the wonderful humor that is the knock knock joke!

Knock, knock?

Who's there?


Lucinda, who?

Lucinda the chain. I wanna come in!

Knock, knock?

Who's there?

Little old lady!

Little old lady who?

I didn't know you could yodel!

Knock, knock?

Who's there?


Gladys who?

Gladys can be that you're home!

Knock, knock?

Who's there?


Ishmael who?

Ishmael for you!

There are a TON more and perhaps I will post more later on!

Hope you enjoyed them!

I found out today that my aunt could be facing a Stage 4 colon cancer diagnosis. My mom told me today. Her other sister, who is a nurse, thinks that if it's true, she may not last through the end of the year.

It's interesting how much cancer is around these days. Seems like everyone has it. A woman I work with, her cousin has Stage 2 Breast Cancer and is 7 months pregnant. They've decided to take the baby by C-section and then 2 weeks later, start treatment for the cancer. Then, my boss is currently dealing with Breast Cancer that has spread to her lymph nodes. She's a tough bird. She has Chemo every Thursday and comes in on Friday no matter what. She's only missed one day because of not feeling well after the treatment.

My ex's dad just survived colon cancer over the past couple years. My mom told me he didn't look so good the one day that she saw him and his wife in the bank. A few months later, he was looking better and he said that he was feeling better. Hopefully, it never returns!

With all this sickness popping up all over the place, it makes me wonder, "Why?"

Why are all these people getting Cancer? Is it because of how they live? Where they live? What they eat? What they don't eat? Did they ignore the symptoms that might have caught the cancer before it was too far along? It just blows my mind to think of all the whys, and hows of cancer. I guess I should take comfort in knowing that there are better treatments out there and hopefully, one day, either a vaccine or possibly a 100% success rate cure.

Until then, please keep all those stricken with this terrible disease in your prayers!

One of my friends got married today. It was a beautiful ceremony as they usually are and the reception was fun too.

However, I just don't like going to weddings anymore because they are never mine. It's not that I'm in love with the idea of having a wedding, I really just want to find my one and only. The one who's going to love me, care for me, and be with me for as long as God lets us.

I know I get on this topic a lot....actually quite a bit, but it is something that weighs heavily on my mind. Will I ever meet "the one?!" Have I already met him and passed him by? Am I to wait until I'm 40 to meet this man?

I've never been one who likes the unknown. As a child, after I stopped believing in Santa, I would find where my parents hid our presents and look at all of them. I'd know which ones were for me and which were for my siblings, yet I was still always excited on Christmas morning when I opened them.....because I knew exactly what they were and knew I'd LOVE them. So, when I don't know what's going to happen, I get anxious....very anxious. I don'[t know if it's a control thing or what. I just need to know what's going to happen.

With that being said, this not knowing when I'll find my other half is killing me! I know, I know! It will happen when you're least expecting it. Well I've pretty much given up hope on that one. Why is it so easy for some people to find their loves, know for sure that it is for real and live happily ever after (of course with all the ups and downs of life, but they get through it together)?

Somehow, I need to take charge of my life. Stop moping around and waiting for my knight in shining armor. Toss aside the notion that he exists and all I have to do is sit patiently and wait for him. I've waited long enough I think and if he's not going to come to me, then by God I guess I need to go to him!

There's just one problem. I have NO idea where to look for him. I've tried looking on this thing here where a few of my friends have found their spouses, but I just don't have any luck. Am I too picky? Perhaps. Should I just try dating guys just to date? Um...I'll have to think about that one. I'm just tired of getting the messages from guys who are not even close to what I am attracted to. Then I think, "is that my problem? Am I too hasty in my judgement of these men?" But I just don't see the point of getting to know someone when you have NO common interests. Yes, opposites have attracted some times, but I'm just not so sure it will with this person.

Don't get me wrong, I meet guys a lot. And they are just wonderful men. Witty, intellectual, not to bad looking, snazzy dresser, and great to be around. There's just one small, tiny problem....I don't think their wives/fiancees/girlfriends would like to share them with me. Although I've never asked them, but I'm just assuming.

I'm really tired of being lonely. I don't mind being alone. I actually quite like being by myself. It's just that I would like to know that when I don't feel like being so isolated, there's someone who will wrap his arms around me and make me feel safe and loved. Friends can only do so much for your soul and I truly treasure my friends and the time they spend with me. I just feel that something is missing in my life. Something BIG.

My friend has told me that I do have guys who are interested in me. Yes, that's true. But I have no interest in them. I just don't feel how I think I should feel. You know, butterflies in the stomach. Waiting to just catch a glimpse of him. Smile whenever I think of him and know that he's thinking of me and smiling too. So, where are you?!?!?

I always wondered.....

someone has been able to photograph
the pot at the end of the rainbow.

But no one is sure that the pot is gold.

Facing Spinsterhood

Today I went to a birthday party for my friend's son. He's now three. The family was there as well as our mutual friends with their spouses and children. Watching all of them interact, kids and adults, made me realize something.

I may never have children.

I'll never know what it feels like to have a child growing inside of me. To feel all the weird feelings you get when you're pregnant. I only know of these since most all of my friends have gone through pregnancy and subsequently, giving birth. But I may never get the chance to experience them myself.

Looking at all these children, I feel two different ways. I feel that I would LOVE to be a mom and have someone to take care of, to nurture, to mold into a wonderful human being. Then I feel that I really don't want the "hassle" of raising children. Of having that same person being completely and totally dependent on me. I couldn't just pick up and leave at a moment's notice. Or just sit around the house b/c I didn't feel like doing anything.

Having children completely changes your life and for the better....or so I've seen and been told. I do hope and pray that some day I'll get to experience parenthood. And part of me really doesn't care if it's for my natural child or not. There are so many children out there who desperately want someone to love them unconditionally and that someone could be me. I always said that if I never did find this guy,

I would possibly adopt or at the very least, become a foster mother. You hear of all these horror stories of foster parents that I would like to know that there is at least one place where children can feel and be safe.

That could very well be my house......someday.
