Weekly rant, and other things


Haven't been blogging lately...too much going on at work, and I honestly have just been downright lazy.

Went to UFC with our local group here last night and had a great time, it is always good to see the members of the group.

I am not a popular member of this group(not that I care about that), in fact most barely know me. The fact is, my circle of friends is small, and that is by choice. I prefer it that way simply because I am one to avoid drama and I figure that the less people you let in, the less you allow yourself to get wrapped up in shit, as what happens a lot of the time in a large group such as ours. I am a private person, I am somewhat of a recluse, and I dont do social functions well at all. The people I mingle with I consider my friends and the people I do not mingle with I consider aquaintances. Now, that doesn't mean I have anything personal against them, just that I do not know them well enough to go up to them and start a conversation about the weather, the war in Iraq, or just how things are going. I hope they do not take offense to this, as it is just my way.

I see a lot of things nobody thinks I see, as at times I can be a pretty observant person. I see and hear a lot of the drama, I hear a lot of the bullshit, and although some may want to stick their nose into it, I DON'T. I could care less who is doing whom, who is talking about this person behind their back or who stole this person from whom. Read carefully...I dont care, I have enough of my own problems in my life to deal with and enough of my own issues to concern myself with. Although I like seeing friends and I like catching up with them to see how they are doing, rumor mongering, gossip, and above all else, drama, does not interest me at all. When I go out I want to have a good time, good conversation, smiles, good drinks, good food, and go home satisfied that I had a good time and no one got hurt or killed. All of the crap I hear going on is just that....Crap. If we could all act like adults instead of high school kids then maybe people would get along. I am not pointing fingers and any one individual, group of individuals, or any specific incident, because I know that as I point a finger at what I believe to be an example of this kind of behavior I am, in turn, pointing three more fingers right back at myself. Friends of mine are reluctant or refuse to become active in the group because of shit that happens or has happened, I, on the other hand, have made a few friends in this group and will not allow a small number of issues get in the way of seeing the people I care about. My ex-wife is an excellent example of a drama queen, hence the word "EX" - wife. If people want to focus their entire life on shit that just doesn't matter, then so be it. I for one refuse to get involved.

As for the last week, I have been working my ass off and getting no where. I am still 5 cars short of my goal and have to find a way to hit that goal in order to pacify my superiors, as well as pay my bills. Doing this in 4 days will take a miracle and even more so with an approaching hurricane. Who wants to buy a car with a hurricane expected to be here the end of the week? I hope there are five people out there that need a car and happen to find me walking the lot at the right time.

I have a new kitten, six weeks old and she is adorable. My 6-year old tabby has been lonely since losing his sister and I figured he would need some company while I am not at home. It is a work in progress since he is leery of the little one and she is just plain scared of him. I can see her wanting to be friendly with him, but he is hissing and carrying on when she comes near. It is only a matter of time though that they are both curled up with each other in the corner one day when I get home from work. Going to take it slow with them and see how it goes. Now if you will excuse me I have an apartment to clean and have to take my son to the park later today. Hope you all have a good Sunday.

Be good to each other.......

AMEN, brother!

And, I can't wait to hear what you've named the little beauty. Be patient, the "cuddle" period will happen before you know it...

Keeping fingers crossed about the cars, dontcha just hate pressure?
As for the kitty, as with people, sometimes it takes some time to warm up to new people, something tells me if you treat the new kitty like you do some of your rather new acquaintances you'll have it purring in no time.

The naming part may take a while, as I have to be sure what I want to call her, and usually it happens all ofa sudden, and hits me likea ton of bricks. I am quite patient and I know they will be inseperable in no time.
