Let's Talk About:: Body Language

The video of the song that you are watching and listening to at the moment is not really what I'm talking about here, but I like it. I know you want to watch, so go ahead and then read what came to me last week as I was driving home. Okay? K. :D

I made this video playlist at

I hope you enjoyed that video. mmm-hmm. :P

Have you ever, in your "real life" and I know you have, met a person or persons that you have been drawn to. Hell, we all have. They can be an outgoing person, a caring one, or one that just has mutual interests as us. We talk to them and we gauge just how much they want to associate with us. We know where we stand all by their body language.

How much do they really want to talk?

Do they show an interest?

Do they just tolerate you?

Do they seek you out , or are you given the cold shoulder?


A necessary book for life. *laffin*
No, I'm serious.

So here is what I've been thinking.

It's the same here, just not as black and white. You gauge by the chatter. Or by the silence. This, to me, is the "online body language".

Far too often one person will be drawn to another, and the interest from one is not reciprocated by the other. This is sad, and I should know because it has happened to me. I have been in both positions.


What I mean is this. I have had a couple people over the three years I have been here that would message and comment me and want immediate responses. They were, as one friend of mine has pointed out, tiring.

There were a few people that commented me each day who I got to know and now really like. We became friends and I actually look forward to their comments.

A couple though, were persistant. So much so that I began to look at them a little different. I looked deeper into who they were, not just the surface. And I found some that I almost tossed away who turned out to be quite beautiful.

First impressions here can be brutal.

Yet there were others that I just wished would take the hint. Most of you reading this know me and if you don't, know this: I can't stand to hurt someone. But there were a couple I had to block. :(

Now I also have been on the other side where I'd be the one who wondered "Why don't they answer me?"

I was wanting approval.

I was wanting acceptance.

I was now the tiring one. And I didn't even know it.

What I want to say here is, don't just give one look. I've found that I have discovered diamonds in amongst those persistent rocks. They are rare, and I know that for some of you, you do not have the time to give each and everyone that friends you that attention. I'm just saying, maybe more than one impression should be allowed.

I am constantly discovering things about myself and life. I am truly a work in progress.

In conclusion, I want to say a thank you to all the wonderful people whom I have been allowed to really get to know. Thank you for allowing me into as much of your world as you are comfortable.

And also an open apology to those who I have been a "persistent rock" to.
To those people whose boundaries I pushed just a little too much.

You know who you are. ;)



Tell me what you think about body language. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

From now on....Friendship with none of that Sissy Stuff

Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?

Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of True Friendship.

You WON'T see cutesy little smiley faces on this- Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

Read to the end.

1. When you are sad,

I will jump on the person

who made you sad

like a spider monkey

jacked up on Mountain Dew!!!

2. When you are blue,

I will try to dislodge

whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile,

I will know you are

plotting something

that I must be involved in.

4. When you're scared,

we will high tail it out of here.

5. When you are worried,

I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse

it could be until you

quit whining, ya big baby!!!!

6. When you are confused,

I will use little words.

7. When you are sick,

Stay away from me

until you are well again.

I don't want whatever you have.

8. When you fall,

I'll pick you up

and dust you off--

After I laugh my butt off!!

9. This is my oath...

I pledge it to the end.

'Why?' you may ask;

-- because you are my FRIEND!


Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only YOU can feel the true warmth.

A Pharmaceutical News Ha-Ha

In pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink". Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of:


Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

Have you had someone that was in your life that can still evoke strong memories? An old friend; a husband or wife; a lover perhaps? They can make you remember those good times, and also how much you miss them? Yeah, I think we all do.

As the second verse states, I came across some old emails this weekend, and this came to me as I worked today.

Tangled... Jingle-Jangled

I'm tangled up in memories,

Memories of you

That make me feel warm inside

And at the same time, so blue.

I came across some messages,

Emails and poems you sent.

How did I misconstrue what

Your words really meant?

I won't let my words become daggers,

I'm just making sure you knew

That as I stumble through these memories

I'm both happy and blue.

I got this as an email fwd.

It has some very good advice and in sending it this way, it is going to way more than 15 people. Peace everyone.


There's some mighty fine advice in these words, even if you're not superstitious. This Lotus Touts has been sent to you for good luck from the Anthony Robbins organization.. It has been sent around the world ten times so far.

Do not keep this message..

The Lotus Touts must leave your hands in 6 MINUTES. Otherwise you will get a very unpleasant surprise. This is true, even if you are not superstitious,agnostic, or otherwise faith impaired

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, 'I love you,' mean it.

FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

Eleven. Don't judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice

TWENTY- ONE. Spend some time alone.

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

Dexter... Season 4


Last night I watched discs 3 & 4 of season 4 of Dexter. I don't want to give too much away about the show, but read this from imdb(dot)com:

"Meet Dexter Morgan. By day he's a blood splatter pattern expert for the Miami Metro police department. But by night - he takes on an entirely different persona: serial killer. But Dexter isn't your average serial killer as he only kills people who fit a very prolific and precise "moral code" taught to him by his late father Harry (he didn't kill Harry, honest), and developed very thoroughly throughout each kill."

If you've never seen it before, I highly recommend it. But you HAVE TO <--- note the caps * start with disc 1 of season 1. That is if you want to really understand Dexter and the story of his life.

Kev gives 2 thumbs up! Be forewarned... it's addictive. :)

The Optimist's Creed

These are words that I try to live up to, and they are words I many times fall short of.

I Promise Myself...

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

Christian D. Larson 1912
