Living each day much muchier

Just for the experience

Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do)
Melt it down (you’re gonna have to eventually anyway)
The fire trucks are coming up around the bend
You live, you learn

Alanis Morissette


I send him a message.
“I’m baking brownies. Wish you were here.”
“I’d like to be,” he replies
“I’d even let you lick the spoon.”
“You accidentally said spoon,” he flirts.

The last month has been… bizarre, for lack of a better word.

A good relationship can be a source of happiness but there’s a reason why so many sitcoms revolve around the quest for one.

Adventures come with highs and lows. So far, this adventure hasn’t been so much sultry kissing under street lamps as mismatched, unrequited, send me pictures, waiting for contact, will I read about me in your blog, hey there princess… it’s all too much.

Does ANYONE like being called princess? Please comment and let me know!

I’m well out of my comfort zone, deep in enemy territory and tempted to go dark just long enough to sneak out with what’s left of my dignity.

But, I’m looking at it wrong.

When you’re on holiday, you do what you want for its own reason.  You walk on the beach, not to get anywhere, but for the pleasure of sand and sea.  You talk to someone for five minutes of their conversation.  You don’t expect to see them again.

That’s the attitude to have.

Adventure has highs and lows. Hopefully there’s more highs on the way, but regardless, the experience itself is worthwhile.

At least that’s what I tell myself.

You live, you learn… but first you gotta live.

    brownies sound wonderful. I’ve never been called princess; hmm. think i’d simply share what i’d like to be called, my true name.

      I’d never been called princess either until the last month or so. Men seem to be under the impression that I want to hear from them how I am one and I deserve to be treated like one. Meanwhile, I wonder a) what drugs are they on or b) who taught them to say that.

      That’s what I’m really curious to hear from people. I want to unravel the mystery of this princess line.

        yes, hard to understand men for me, also

        perhaps it has to do with social conditioning.
        once upon a time in a land of beauty
        in a time of enchantment
        there was a princess
        she is in many animations, she is a bride,
        she embodies sweetness, innocence
        and other feminine qualities
        real or mythical.
        basically its a term of endearment.
        if it’s not dear to you, perhaps offer him one that is.
        unless he happens to be a prince, or king.
