I can take it in stride but this kinda sucks

Dating sites are creepy you never know what your going to get. While reading your rant about this person the thought that kept coming up is that this person whos ad you answered is a man. I would let it go you don't need weird trouble.

Non-stop calling - here I go again
Posted: 9/4/2010 11:21:30 AM
I have OCD and it's hell but it's all in my mind. You got OCD and it's hell but it's all in your mind kick it out. Tell those thoughts you get to call that jerk, out of your head. It takes practice but after awhile it works. Go to a movie, read a book. Don't date anyone else till your able to control the OCD.

another workplace mass murder - mental health checkups needed
Posted: 8/7/2010 4:17:25 PM
I think that mandatory mental health check ups wouldn't work because most openly unstable people would not commit this action. It's the quiet ones with no police record, that seem to have their lives together that flip out usually. Just my opinion. That kind of crime cannot be predicted everyone in this world is so self obsessed. They don't think about how others act on a daily basis, unless it becomes an issue. That is the time to drop a dime to the law and hope they care enough to do something.

GETTING OUT OF DODGE
Posted: 8/7/2010 4:07:43 PM
Google abandoned farmhouses, prehaps you could find a cheap fixer upper. I love checking out abandoned building sites on the internet. Living in Santa Barbara a vacation town I haven't been anywhere in many years, nor have I been successful enough to go anywhere. I'm in vacation hell. There's a site OABINNY, Old abandoned buildings in Northern New York. Many of them are beautiful old farms. Check it out. This could be an answer for some who have lost their homes, good luck.

30 Years ago when I first came to Santa Barbara I worked at this condo estate several actors lived there. It was quite the experience for me. Peter and James Mother lived there and she hated me I couldn't seem to do anything right. She looked exacley like Peter the hair and face chasing me around in a blue dress was pretty scarey.

Recycling Failure...
Posted: 12/31/2009 7:43:04 PM
I guess it's the state run recycling centers closing ours are private businesses they are not closing, one of them vows to stay open for the homeless and poor and that's kinda nice because not many companies this way will do things directly for the poor and homeless they all want a tax write off. We get alot more for alummin cans about 1.57 a pound but there are so many people collecting you hardly get anything. The politicans dipped into the State fund sounds about right.

A family member is dying today, and I'm mad at him.
Posted: 12/28/2009 8:17:24 PM
Well I was molested a couple of times, brutaly raped once and I wasted a child molester, it was an accident but happened when I was 14 and I went away for it, I shouldn't have. My little Sister got molested by our Step-Father my Mom found out about it she married him. My Sister flipped. I didn't know way back then or I would have killed him. I didn't find out till I got to California with no intention of ever going back home. I called him up and told him if he ever touched her again I would go back and kill him and he never went near her again. A few years later he was dying and asked me to pray with him on the phone, and I did a few days later he died. Isn't it weird when people know? You gotta do what's best for you and only you know in your heart what that is, listen to your heart not your head.

Screw You Martha Stewart
Posted: 12/12/2009 12:26:40 PM
I think I would like to screw Martha Stewart shes pretty hot. I get into all that Christmas stuff, I miss my spray on snow I put in my windows every year, when it rains it looks like snow. I've never been married or was able to have kids so I never got into that "Perfect 50's family cr*p." Maybe when I was a kid Mom, Dad, but my Dad treated us all bad and it never really appealed to me after I got the hell out of Chicago. The only thing that ever affected me this time of year is I lost one of the only women I've ever loved this time of year. But now it's different because she passed away Dec 19th my GrandMothers birthday, and they were alot alike I think this year I will find a way to celebrate both of their lives. Yes I agree screw Martha Stewart.

Carp
Posted: 12/8/2009 6:22:55 PM
Years ago when I was a kid some friends who were quite good making Soul food turned me on to some carp they caught from the Chicago river, it was quite good. Kinda like catfish. They might have been pulling one on me because the Chicago river might be a scarey place to dine from but that's what they told me.

pale ale beer
Posted: 11/4/2009 1:23:30 PM
Beers good but I'm a drunk so I drink Sharps near beer by Miller, it's pretty good and I like to smoke the weed also. When I drank the real stuff I was a Rolling Rock man having traveled by thumb when I was a youngin I got turned on to that beer outside the Alcoholics Anonymous capital of the world. Akron, Ohio..Then there was Relinder it isn't spelled that way Rylander, no more like Relinder, from Relinder Wisconsion, near Heaven on Earth, Eagle River. Pale Ales are great Bass Ale, I really miss the old beers Strohs, Hamms, Pabst, when I was a kid all us runaways in Fort Wayne busted a seal on a freight train and it was filled with "PBR" BEER, OH BOY! We thought we died and went to Heaven. Thee Good old Days. The only one seeking attention is the person that voted down this thread! There is a community of beer drinkers on POF and not all of them are drunks like me, please don't vote down this thread.

What is/was your dream?
Posted: 10/25/2009 9:46:57 AM
I always wanted to be a writer without all the hard work of course. It was easier being a laborer. When I was young I still had some grammer smarts, now my grammer stinks. But after all these years and way too many beers I have a small writing job an editor and a very small allowance.

Posted: 10/21/2009 9:00:22 PM
Oh I have totally I am 110 percent for the death penality when someone commits murder or even rape. I don't care what color they are, kill them. I'm not blind I see what's going on our goverment isn't lifting a finger to stop it and don't blame Obama George Jr. left the illegals alone he wanted the Latino vote. Plus those fellas come over here to work use phoney ss numbers phoney names never got their yearly taxes back. The question I ask basically says it all. Then there's the other thing all the wonderful American companies moving into Mexico for cheap labor, capitalist pigs and they aien't got no bleeding hearts.

Maybe you angry "right people" should take your beef to the U.S. Goverment instead of blaming people that have nothing to do with it. If you want laws changed you have to get petitions signed by registered voters of the state to get your issue on the ballot. Because we have a difference of opinion you hate the bleeding hearts huh? I guess that makes sense. I know a man from Mexico who's homeless and when he see's people break the law even other people from Mexico illegals he calls the police on them.

Posted: 10/20/2009 7:48:53 AM
Ha,ha,ha,ha..I think my former neighbors were invested in some sort of illegal sh*t. We got along for a time she got herself an illegal man no problem I liked the guy, he was cool but soon both he and her started trying to intimadate. My health not that great I was alittle afraid. But then they started lying to the landlord I aien't rich don't really have anywhere to go I was seriously considering buying a gun. One day my stimulas came in and I bought a scanner just to listen to ended up getting a job which involves the scanner listening to it all the time. I think they were into "Hard stuff" it freaked em out, I think. Which made me very suspicous heard some calls that might have involved them but unless it's some rape or murder of someone that doesn't have it comming I mind my own business but they finally moved. The ***hole threw a bullet in my house too what a punk. That's when I was thinking about a gun. I pray they get everything that's comming to them. As far as weed I'm medical so I get it legal. When all those fires were going on they were finding fields left and right, I'd rather buy American weed. I still feel the same way about all people that punk aien't gonna change my mind about Mexicans there's criminals everywhere.

Acceptence is the key of living in this life man. Once you accept life the way it is. Live and let live other things fall into place. Always take care of yourself don't let no one take advantage of you. And NEVER, NEVER take life too seriously because you aien't getting out alive, none of us are. I'm just starting to enjoy my life and I'm over 50, things are just starting to fall into place with my creatitivy, one door closes another one opens. Something came into my life I never expected and it's beautiful it was really worth the wait. I could have enjoyed it all much sooner though had I just accepted everything the way it is. But it's O.K. The way it is.
