I've been missing in action, as it were. I have some things going on. The career is crackalackin' and I'm busy as a one legged man in a butt kicking contest.
Real life update:
I got a new car. Yay me. Like it. I cared about the comfort, the sound system and the gas mileage, because that is what matters to someone who puts 150,000 miles on a car in a few years.
I've been traveling my hiney off. A couple of weeks ago I was in Mississippi working at a facility with compliance issues. Last week I was in Texas doing a start up, this week I am in Texas again, and next week I'll be in New Mexico unless something changes it... something like profuse whining from the administrator of the Texas facility. He doesn't want them to snatch me away.
Apparently there are forces of good and/or evil at work, trying to prevent me from collecting on that large sausage. And that's all I'm gonna say about that.
I have an ex boyfriend from a lonnnnnnng time ago who is driving me nuts right now. He has decided that we are going to have some "meaningful correspondence", whether I want to or not. Yesterday I got a scathing email from him, talking about the fact that my "complete disregard for correspondence" was "disturbing" to him. He used a lot of other flowery phrases to say that I am being shallow and surface-skimming with him and not talking about any deep things when I answer his emails. He's also very committed to his wife, even though I am THE MOST beautiful woman he has ever seen in his life. And he needs meaningful correspondence with me. And he needs it right now.
I don't want none o' that. Not interested. I've had 2 angry emails from him because of my lack of cooperation with his plan for a meaningful relationship with me. I hope he doesn't go all stalkerific on me.
I'm feeling pretty good over all in the real life.. though I am busy as hell, I have no christmas shopping done whatsoever, and christmas is 2 weeks away. I do not have a real life significant other and this is starting to get on my nerves. That said, I don't know if I can put up with anyone for very long. I'm going to get very set in my ways and there won't be any hope for me. But hey... pffft.. whatever.
Nuff of the real life stuff. It's dull.
Second life update:
Tragedy has befallen someone I love in SL, but it is not my story to tell and I don't know if it will be told at all, so this is just a nod to one I care about. I miss somebody.
Scarlett has been a freakin angel lately. I'm so bored with being good. I may have to break out and run amok a little. My current sweetie is so great in many ways... but he keeps me waiting too much, he expects me to stay in the castle and wait for him when he is not there, and he gets mad when I hang out with my male friends. This leaves me with a lot of dull down time while he fiddlefarts around and doesn't sign on.
We have had nothing but hell out of his crazy ex. She has been shit hammering him with crazy emails and IMs because she found out he is with me now. She cheated on him, long term, but thinks she has some kind of rights to him. I am sick to death of her tiresome drivel. So I posted in my profile, a place I know she looks every day... a naked picture of me and him all hugged up on a bed along with a message for "Crazy Bitch". The message said "Yes, he's hot... and you didn't know what you had when you had him apparently, but stalking him hasn't made you more attractive. It has made you sickening. Now go bury your dense head and cry some more pixel tears. And stop looking in my profile."
Let me tell you neighbor, she went buck wild. My man said WTF did you do? Because she was slamming his email with seething hate filled messages.
My boy says I am a firecracker. We laughed some more at the pathetic ex and then deleted everything so she can hopefully stop behaving like a spider monkey. (screeching, posturing, and flinging poo)
Sometimes I love to be with my guy, but when he keeps me waiting it makes me mad and I did not sign up for SL so I could sit in my castle all night waiting. If he doesn't step it up pretty soon, I'm going to create a scandal. I already plan to start clubbing again and if he doesn't like it, he can just show up and stop me.
I miss my crazy boy. Remember the nut job that I used to talk about? I think about him every day and I miss him a lot. He found out about my new honey and he just signed off. I haven't seen him in the game since then. I am hoping he comes back, because he is really my favorite and I'd take him back in a second.
I need to go find me some lunch. The grid is down in SL for another hour or so, otherwise, that would be my lunch break. That's the beauty of bringing my personal laptop to work with me.
I'll be glad when this work day is over. My ass is tired already. I had trouble going to sleep last night. I didn't even lay down until about 3:15 am. Then I kept thinking about stuff and couldn't go to sleep. I feel like I could drift right off now. Ain't that always the way?
OH...lest I forget... Warcrygirl!! Get thee to the record store my friend. You need the newest Breaking Benjamin CD, titled "Phobia". It's very good. VERY. I love that song "The Diary of Jane". The rest of the CD is great too. You know I wouldn't lead you wrong.
