Guess What??? 200 Posts??? That's Just Sick!!!

200 Posts?!?!

I think I crossed 100 posts last week. I must have been bored. I have beat myself over the head for the last few days attempting to come up with something phenomenal for this post.

However, for posts like this, I always revert back to how I started this, my blog. This has and always will be open, unabashed honesty about my trip through life and this is the part that my blog has played.

In Case You Didn’t Know… Let Me Catch You Up To Date…
- I am separated and have been since I started blogging.
- I lost my job shortly after starting this blog.
- When I arrived here and started blogging, it was with a broken heart.
- While here, I have struggled with depression in many forms.
- Read my old stuff, there were moments of insanity. No not humorous insanity. That’s what you get now.
- Blogging brought me back to a “normal” state.
- My earlier blogs were open and exhaustive searches through my pain. They were sprinkled with some laughter. Today, it is opposite with more laughter than true pain.
- For the first time in my life, during a time I blogged, I was homeless. (Didn’t know that did ya?)

So… What have I learned you may or may not ask?

I have learned that just as in real life, some people like me and some people can’t stand me. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground. I don’t do this on purpose. I spent a lot of time when I started blogging wanting “everyone” to like me. I just spent 30 years doing that in real life. I believe I have changed in that aspect. I am now okay with how you feel about me, good or bad. It isn’t my job to “make” anyone “like” me. All I can do is just be who I am, you are either on board or not. Do I have a momentary twinge of wonder, of worry? Yup.... But no where near what it used to be like.

I have made some incredible friends here. I won’t list you. You already know who you are. I am also sure I have made a number of people angry. LOL… I am sure you know who you are. I assure you, other than Lucky, whom I just like to pick on because he will dish back and he is well... unashamedly annoying, I have not set out to anger you on purpose. So get over it and come back here and let’s have fun. Kidding… Kidding… (OK… Not really)

Just like in the real world, there are always constants in our lives and then there are some who come and go like whispers of possibilities around us. I look back through my old blogs and see people I haven’t seen in a while. Those people were instrumental in helping me move forward and get to where I am today and they have no idea.

I guess I have come to this conclusion. This is a real community, its just clothing optional. Just like with you, there are people that like me here, people that don’t, some that tolerate me and some that plot my demise. (Sounds conspiratorial doesn’t it?) Nah… It’s just life. That’s ok. I probably deserve it. You have witnessed me laugh. You have seen me fly off the handle at stupid stuff. I CAN tell you this though, you will probably see me do it all again. It’s just the way I am wired. I just ask for your patience and forgiveness in advance.

I enjoy what I do and wouldn’t change it for the world. The reason I hit the refresh button over and over is because I can’t wait to hear what you have to say.

I have always been honest with you. I will be now as well. I have been tired of blogging for about two weeks now. Maybe tired is too harsh a word. Burnt out is definitely too harsh. I just haven’t felt the “oomph” I normally feel. About 3 or 4 days before last weeks (was that last week?) little tête-à-tête I realized I was tired. The entire row was almost the end for me, simply because I didn’t have the energy for normal blogging much less that type thing.

However, rather than stomp off and take my toys home, I realized I couldn’t imagine not having you guys to make me smile or to yell at the computer in anger. This week has been mundane. Average, not bad and not great. I have also been sick, so perhaps this plays into it. I am not saying I am leaving, just letting you know where my head has been. (Other than in a toilet.)

I had wanted… so wanted to have a big, huge BANG 200 post for you. Sorry. It has turned into another time of reflection, a time to consider what has come and what has gone. It is a milestone for me. One I record in my mind and in my heart the direction I am heading.

Do you have any idea the intensity my eyes would bring to bear against your resistance as I lean slowly, painfully, forward? Do you have any idea that your breath just quickened… a tiny catch, more sensed than heard? I saw the flicker in your eyes. It is almost imperceptible, the switch from surprise to pure lust, but I see it. Do you have any idea how painful it would be to sit, inches from my lips, holding yourself back and not being able to finally taste me? Days, weeks or months you have wondered. You have waited. Desired. Wanted. Needed. There is heat here. Unexplainable heat and this just the start, just a kiss. Now, caught in the depths of my gaze, no word except pure, unadulterated, unspoken, but sensed lust keeps you frozen to your seat. You sit there, my presence looming before you, enraptured by the experience you are about to consumed by. Closer I lean; the last image that flashes before your eyes, as they close without conscious thought in expectation of flesh on flesh, is my lips parting slightly to take yours……

See ya next week when I post my 300th....

"I have learned that just as in real life, some people like me and some people can’t stand me. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground"

Well, I'm "middle ground"...I "sort of" like you..uh, but not sure...well..the suit does something for me...and blue is definitely your color...OK -

I kind-of-sort-of like you! {=}

It is your 200th post and a milestone because you did ityour way, That is one of the best things about these blogs, we are able to show our many sides, some may like and some may not, the different buttons are there , to walk in and walk out, or walk on by.Congrads and wishes for many 100`s more.

As I`m sure you have heared echoed and echoed over again "great new pic".Something about a "Sharp Dressed Man"

I wasn't aware that your own personal blog was supposed to be to please others? I always thought of it as a kinda diary with a twist, a place to write about WHATEVER you just happen to be thinking about at the time.

You just happen to have that down to an artform. You have the ability to make ppl laugh with what you are thinking about at the time. wether its laughing with you, (like the cyber sex posts), or at you (the exploding lighter posts). We are entertained by your thoughts, and for those who arent, phuq em if they cant take a joke.

As for those times of reflection, if you didnt have them then we wouldn't beleive you were real. I think its part of what makes you someone that ppl enjoy reading. So, stop worrying about those who would plot your demise. you can always take a page outta my book...This is me, like me or go the fuck away! hehe
CONGRATS on #200

I read your blog every day but comment rarely. I will say though, congratulations on 200! I hope to keep reading and seeing the adventures and thoughts you are kind enough to let us in on. Oh and by the way, these reflection and life posts are in my opinion, the best ones you have! Except of course, the ones where things blow up! lol

Now that the disgusting mushy stuff is over...

The Results Are In...

Yes, the candidates for your dream girl, and one heterobutch, have been selected.

I will start with a quote from Will Rogers:

“I bet you if I had met him (Trotsky) and had a chat with him, I would have found him a very interesting and human fellow, for (b)I never yet met a man that I didn't like”(b)

Disagreements are part of life, without them we would not learn who we are and what we like. If everyone agreed with each other on all aspects life would be very boring because everyone would be exactly like us (looks, smells, sounds, and thoughts.) There would be no challenge to improve ourselves and meet others because we are all the same. I may not agree with everything you have typed but that does not mean I dislike you (meaning everyone) because of it. No, just the opposite you have allowed us the opportunity to learn and experience something we may not have even thought of. In addition, yes, there are those who will respond to blogs, profiles, and advice in a negative fashion just to see if they can get a response (self-indulgent people) but even they have the something about them, which will allow us to like or even love them.

Thank-you for sharing you thoughts, dreams, hopes, fears, jokes, and stories. Your blog has made us think and ask questions about our own lives as well as laugh our arse off.

With that said, I will stop with another Quote from Will Rogers:

We are all here for a spell; get all the good laughs you can.

Yep... I've been hiding, had a lot of reading to catch up on here at Enchanting Ranting in Texas and am to damn lazy to comment on all the wonderful, crazy, whitty, sad and funny things you've shared with us. So I'm taking a short cut and just comment with an easy thank you... and my usual Smoohces and Hugs...

I've only been into the blogs for about 2 weeks now. At first, I went thru the most popular blogs and browsed yours along with the others to get some idea of what was happening here.

Then greeneyes started blogging again, Thank God. Hers was the first blog I ever visited, and I only caught her last three blogs before she left. When I noticed she was back, I finally looked at her profile and saw your work there. Damn Fine Work it is!
I thought, "Now there's a guy that's onto something."
I came back here and really looked around this time. I really read everything and tried to grasp the mood of what was happening here.
I saw your "Starbuck's quote" post, and it finally clicked. Here was somebody I might be able to connect with.

I really like the way that you take the time to reply to all of your responders and the fun and welcoming spirit of your blog.
I still say, "Damn Fine Work", and you're a terrific host.
Sorry for the long post. I thought you might like a newbie point of view. Post Often, Please.

Now we know you're just a whore all around, aren'tcha? 200 posts, in under a month from your 100th milestone. And comment whoring. You are incorrigible. In that case, keep on keeping on! I love your blog.

Dude did you just try to kiss me at the end of your post.

Holy crap, just cause I get stupid ever now and then and act nice to you doesn't mean you can mack all over me like that.

At least take me out for dinner first so I don't feel cheap.

Congrats on 200 and all the well deserved friends you have.

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

That's a lot of blogging...Im at 156 and I have been here since March.
I can relate to the bloggers block or lacking the oomph to write. Then again I have had better things to do with my time. I have found out it is much more desirable to write when I'm in the mood then to feel I have to post something everyday or everyweek. Nuff of that stuff..

This was a nice post and I enjoyed it. I learned a lot about you without having to dig in the basement. Now I have the desire to sit back and look at your old post.

I'm with blonde...great new picture!...Oh the things I do when my friend comes over in a suit

(him) Trav, just wanted to say that I'm trying to learn from your example. It's kinda hard for me to open up and just let things come out, even everyday ordinary blog type stuff. I really admire the way you just spill out what you're thinking. Hopefully I'll get better at it. Oh, Buzz says hi, and is disappointed that y'all never wrote back to him.

(her) Hey Traviewavie.... just wanted to say congrats on your 200th. I have always been entertained or moved in some way when I visit your blog. (Maybe it was something I ate) ( wasn't plastic) Keep up the good work; thanks for all the laughs (from both of us)

I also "hit a wall" in blogging after a torrid start. Now I just write when inspired and feel no pressure to post daily.

I think that this 200th post you have written is awesome. I have not read your early stuff as of yet, but I do not feel a need to after reading this heartfelt and honest post.

You sucked me into your world again trav. You got Jez sick and now her boys are sick?? You scum! If this photo you have for this post was your main profile photo, I never would have thought you looked like my son! You sucked me into your world again by your words. I hate when I can't break myself from reading your blogs.
