The biggest Shopping Day of the Year and half of Americans have to work. SUCKS!!!
It should be called Happy Capitalist Day it just seems more accurate.
What the hell does all this have to do with the man in the photo. My dad died on last year on July 4rth, like a good Rican soldier. He now has give me reason to hate this non-holiday. He dies how he lived, with his Johnson in charge, sorry dad but you did.
I have been crying nonstop for many days I hate that I miss him so much. I hate that we are still dealing with the fact that he lived a life full of SEX and women. I hate it all!!!!
He was still my dad and I was his baby!!!!
He tried to make me understand the love of<Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

El Alamo

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketAny one that grew near Austin know about The Alamo Draft House if they do not then I often wonder where they really living. It is a huge question in my life???
I have gone to the one and only The Alamo Draft House downtown Austin a number of times. I always get a little queasy going there because I used to go to this place called The Boathouse back in the 80's, when I was underage and my gay friends had to sneak me in. Did I mention it was a gay bar. So when we drive and park, I can remember all thr drunken nights and the pre-nervousness of trying to get it.
My now husband took me there on dates but it was not till he and I had had a baby, moved to San Antonio and started of this path I am on today that I got lived my most unforgettable times. No, I did not have any life altering experience, no I did not meet a person who changed my life nor did I see the most life altering flick .
What I got there that I never got in any Church was an overwhelming sense of Community during the showing ofPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A Buffy sing-a-long!!!
My husband, myself and a bunch of would be Scoobies got to sing and laugh and yes CRY at a public viewing of my all time life altering Television show. I named my son after Angels real name....Before he was Angelus...when he was only a drunken lout living in Ireland with bad hair. I did not admit this to anyone for a long time, for only those that have dwelt deep into Buffiana Verse would know this.
Anyway The Alamo Draft House gave my dream of reliving Buffy a chance to shine.
I will always remember that moment more than any drunken makeout session with a would be bisexual..

Yes it will be hard on all of us but It is the best thing for him. The Science and Engineering Academy
Is among the top 300 school in the Nation. The number I was told is higher now but until the publication I wont know.

A Wedding Ring

Why do I not have a wedding ring? Why did I never have a big wedding. Why do I marry for love? Well I do not think I married my other/ex/first husband for love. I know I married Mike for love. I also know that I wish I could have had a wedding. Why??????
I do not know!
I wish that we had not lost both our bands ( yes we have had two sets, but never a ring) but we did and it sucks. I hate having been so non traditional but ooh I had to do things my way and now I am pissed.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I could care less that my friends are all so non traditional but they are and again it sucks. I guess my friend would reflect something of my own personality.

I want a ring WAHH!!!!!
No more whining!!!

Kiss My Asana

Today was not a humid day in the room at Alamo Heights . The room was full only one new student and about 4 men. Peaches was the teacher. I enjoyed Yoga as I had not in a long time. After class Lisa was bring out new clothes and put them out and I made plans to go to Central Market. It was funny that since I started swimming I have cut down Yoga to 3 day a week. I am bring it back up to 4 next week, or so go my plans. while we sweat like crazy in our posturesPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket and I did have some progress I think I love both things now. I am still of the mind that only Bikram brings such cleansing properties to your body, which I really need after swimming, because inhale so much freaking chlorine I can smell the chlorine during class as it pours out in my sweat. I did sweat today but never as much as Mike. His towels drip after class wetting the floor in the foyer which drives me nuts. He is not the only one that sweats this much, but it seems that the men sweat more than the women. My sweat gets all up in my hair maybe because he is bald. I had a great Rabbit today but Camel made my heart race. Trikonasana and

Dandayamana Bibhaktapada Paschimottanasana

(I like writing that) were really good. I almost touched my head to the floor. Tomorrow Lisa is teaching, I am sure I will be going. I think i may need a Lisa class. She pushes me beyond the what the others do. I think I have fear and respect for her all at the same time

Laurence and I went to the pool today and did our hour. The pool calms me down in a way Yoga does not. It has a lot to do with not having a mirror and the water. Water has such a calming effect on me, even when it is full of chlorine that I sometimes feel I missed my calling. What is funny is that the Ocean frightens me sometimes.
Fear of the unknown. It is silly ecause I just think that there just may be sea monsters and that the giant sqiuid of long go are really waiting for me. The pool should have helped but I came home feeling crappy. Liam won't eat and so I am fretting big time. Laurence is just being a royal PITA, but he gets so sad when I or his dogs are not with him. I is just my crazy son, so eventually I forget all his craziness.
My throat feels raw. I hope I am not getting sick because I do not feel like dealing with this.

A Day in the Life

Today started off with a spin in the car listening to The Beatles. Liam made me listen to A day and a life over and over and over. I enjoyed it. When I came home I had an email from Brenda. That was so cool. She inspired me to start doing this all over again. I have been thinking about so much that writing to friends and people from the past has been nice. This week I also heard from Alejandro.
My back is extra crunchy today so I sit in his chair got in San Fransisco during the meet and greet back some years ago. I am hoping that my headache will go away. I am also hoping Brenda will write to me. I need to see people soon. I need a job soon.

Here is a story about Human Kindness.
1. Yesterday a young guy came to the house and dropped off a bag of fresh vegetables .He was from the local Baptist church they have a garden in the back of their church. They were going around the neighborhood giving it away to everyone with some Dove chocolate bars. This made me cry so much. I have been having a hard time with money, not that we do not have food in the house. We always do, but I am not used not having a good cash flow and having to account for every penny for 5 people. These things were fresh and good. The fact that they came to my door when I felt so low was wonderful.

2. I have lost 65lbs since last years. Since my dad died I have been trying to take back control o my health. YogaPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket has helped changed m life. Now there is swimming. The thing about all this is that last week Mike left some of our clothes at the Laundry mat and they were stole. Mostly work out clothes and swim suits. It hurt so bad because these are my life line!!!

I belong to have been there for quite some time. This summer I joined a challenge team. We work out, post and fill our pledges. MY team captain is wonderful.
When I posted about this everyone was very nice and gave me lots of support.
Chaili send me her clothes. She send 2 swim suits shorts and work out clothes. Yes they fit. She had dropped some weight so they are two big for her but they are wonderful to me.
The kindness of strangers.
Live is OK for now.

THE ROCK STAR OF THE MONTH I owe him so much, perhaps even my life


Who should I have. I have had so many. I just have to give this guy so muchPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I am so sure my bother would disagree but he is the reason Junior High was so easy.
His music has done so much for me.
I am writing this because I was reading Brenda's blog and she was talking about music and decisive moments in her life. She had the song Wendy. I got the song stuck in my head and it was not easy to get out. I wish it was not filled with 1970s icons but what can I say. All I can say is that thinking about this made me think about hearing Hey Jude in 1978 being played on the radio while I was in Ramon's mom bedroom. I was thinking how I wanted to be anywhere else on new years than at The Bruno's but i had spend so many holidays with the Puerto Ricans that I really did not think I stood a chance of ever leaving. Then it was on. They were there. In my head forever.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
They touched my heart and I have ever been the same. They(and he) have carried me through pain and happiness and will always be remembered by me as my first Musical crush

Paul is now more than 64 and I will still feed him.
He has gone through so much and most of his old friends are dead. Heather(the dancing stump) Mills was no Linda.
Paul has regained my respect and maybe he never really lost it. His new CD will be mine and I hope he is with us many more years because the day he goes a bit of my heart will go with him.

No one ever eve left around.....
You know I would lay this over and over and over. Just ask "el Cuciador" he hated it as much as I hated his stupid cologne that he wore all summer. Eau de Gray Flannel. Yuck.
If Gray Flannel had to have a smell, yes that was it. Hot and full of pepper, in a hot un-air condition house in South Texas. Let me tell you I was fit t be tied.

Paul and Linda just sang to me. It is funny because that need for repetitive music is part of the calming mechanism for people with ADD and I did not find this out till much later.
Wings at the Speed of Sound.....Wings Over America......London Town.......Mcartney!!!

I cannot write anymore tonight. I am going to go and dream of that Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

He made me start blogging again. So I can say all sorts of crap and not care, after all I do have the Russians and the smile of all mankind raining down on me.

Timur Bekmambetov and Sergei Lukyanenko brought Sergei books to life in this beautiful trilogy(only two are out)of Dark Vampiric movie. What is it well I will tell you The richness and texture in these movies are incredible. Living among us mere humans are the "Others", humans who possess various supernatural powers be they witches,vampires,shape shifters or other PTB. They are divided up into the forces of light and the forces of dark, who signed a truce several centuries(with ARMOR AND ALL) ago to end a devastating battle. Ever since, the forces of light govern the night while the day belongs to their dark opponents. Ah it makes one sigh and dream of chocolate. In modern day Moscow, the dark Others roam the night as vampires and other evil nightmares, while a "Night Watch" of light forces (among them Anton,[he is the kind of man that could lead one to defect, not since Sandor Csanyi from Budapest In Kontrol have I seen such hypnotic eyes] a kind of seer and the movie's main character) try to control them and limit their outrages. The obligatory for both sides condition of the truce is that the two powers (The Light and The Dark) maintain the balance and neither of them should dominate the other one, or else the fragile harmony of the world is broken. It is an old story, with a soviet setting and a modern/classic spin to make all us true Gothic lovers happy.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

What will happen???
Only Twilight Watch will tell!!!
For his and other good movies
stay tune Cillian's new movie and why I hate Ewan McGregor otherwise know as the death of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Reading Brenda

I have been reading Miss Brenda's blog and she has made me queep. I actually saw a picture of me there taken in 1993. I want to do more than write here so I has got to learn me some more stuff. I have been swimming more than doing Yoga and I need to go back. I will go over the weekend and start going back next week like before. The swimming is like a peaceful paradise in the middle of the TEXAS heat.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Today is the first day of Summer but to me it is the beginning of the end.
For those that do not know!!!

Summer Solstice

A solstice occurs twice a year, whenever Earth's axis tilts the most toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun to be farthest north or south at noon. The name is derived from Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still), because at the solstice, the Sun stands still in declination, that is, its movement north or south is minimal. The term solstice can also be used in a wider sense as the date (day) that such a passage happens. The solstices, together with the equinoxes, are related to the seasons. In some languages they are considered to start or separate the seasons; in others they are considered to be center points (in English, in the Northern hemisphere, for example, the period around the June solstice is known as midsummer, and Midsummer's Day is 24 June, three or four days after the solstice itself).
