Loving Myself.

I’m doing a 30 days sort of deal but not all at once because I can’t think that much. So you’re getting them when I wanna give them to you. So “day two” is

“Something you love about yourself”

I love that I have empathy for people. Well almost all people. Like my high school AP History Teacher said: “I am only bigoted towards bigots.” It’s hard to have feelings for everyone, it’s hard to look at someone and say “I haven’t been through what you’ve been through but let me feel for you.” I like that I can do that. I like that when a person yells at me for empty shelves at a store I have no control over and tells me that their battling cancer, all I focus on is the fact that they’re battling cancer, and forget that they’re mad at “me.” and I like that all I really wanted to do was hug that woman. And tell her it was going to be okay, and that she was a strong brave woman. I love that I’m sitting here crying about it just typing it out.
I love that I I can take people’s pain into my own. And that I can listen to people, and really feel emotions.

Something else I love about me? I can let go of things. I truly look at things as “small things” and tend to let go. Sure I will bitch and complain for a bit. But then after I get all that out, I will let go. Unless it’s a big deal. If it’s something near and dear to my heart I will not let it go. I will hold on to it in my heart and not let anyone know it is bothering me until I explode. Which isn’t something that I love, but it’s something I do.

I love that I can deal with any type of person. I have a high tolerance for stupidity. I will talk shit about the stupid person. But I will tolerate them. Why? Because sometimes it’s just easier. I don’t look for fights but if a fight comes to me I won’t back down. I also like that about myself.

I like that I will have the ability to teach my son tolerance, and love. I love that I will be able to tell him honestly that it’s better to love everyone then to carry hate and to bully. I love that I can smile on days when all I want to do is sit and cry for the world. It’s hard to do, but I do it. I smile all day long and try my hardest to make at least one person feel better.

Hobo Ghosts (I will be offensive, just warning you)

The title will make sense later on in the post I swear!
I would first like to thank Leslie for giving me the fodder to fuel this fire. She told me the other day that she doesn’t believe in ghosts. She has good reason, I’m not going to go into it, it’s her story to share. I on the other hand have had ‘weird’ things happen to me that lead me to believe that there are ghosts. Now aliens, I can’t wrap my head around aliens but ghosts, yeah I get that. (ha)
I haven’t had a ton of ‘paranormal experiences’ just one or two. Once when I was sleeping I heard someone say my name and then blow in my face. I uhm haven’t been able to sleep towards the edge of the bed since. When I lived with my uncle in his creepy apartment I swear I had something on my bed every night with me. And then after I moved out and then went back to visit, I woke up worried about my mom because of a dream and felt a hand caress my face.  It didn’t freak me out, it actually calmed me down.
Leslie and I have decided that I’m a freak and she’s awesome about this whole situation. Leading me to talk about all of the awesome ghost hunting shows on television. I will not be discussing Ghost Whisperer or Medium because they’re not “reality” shows. Plus I really like Ghost Whisperer because she wears really fancy clothes all the time and some how in that small town people still don’t know that she can talk to ghosts.

So did you know there there are at least 8 shows that I can find that are regular shows about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal research of some sort. This is awesome to me. I love ghost hunting shows because they think that it’s really scary to the viewer but honestly it’s not. Because everything happens off screen. I can say though when I first started watching Ghost Hunters I really liked it because they did catch things on camera. But then it spiraled out of control. Here’s my list and here’s what I think about them.

Ghost Hunters:

Okay the only thing that they seem to catch lately is spider and bats. There’s a guy on there that is more afraid of spiders and flying then he is of “spirits.” And really do they have to explain what all their equipment is EVERY show? I think I know what a flashlight is for fellas, thanks. And they don’t actually help the people in my opinion. They just say “yeah it’s haunted” or “it’s all in your mind.” And then they’re gone. And I can’t stand most of the “characters” on the show. My favorite line so far is “Well should I start provoking the spirits?” “Dude, these people have had a hard enough life, if they don’t want to come out and talk with us….they don’t … have to.” Pure gold. I wish I could get audio of it or a video clip.  Which leads me to…

Ghost Hunters International:

Okay take the two most annoying people from your cast and give them their own show. Awesome idea! Yeah sure you’re rid of them, but we still have to listen to them. I think that it is a good idea to check out England and the rest of “The Old World” and it has a lot of history and with that possible hauntings but no actual video evidence or very little. Just a bunch more “what was that?!” moments. I say “LAME!”

Paranormal State:
I like these guys because unlike GH if there is an actual haunting they don’t just say “yup it’s haunted, see ya later!” They do ritual cleansing which might work might not, BUT it makes the victim feel better about their house. If I thought my house was haunted I would want it “cleansed” before they left. They do get a lot of video evidence of people being possessed but then you have to ask yourself if it’s all an act or not.

Destination Truth:

Is awesome. I love how over the top they are with their maps and explanations. It makes the show. No matter that when they were looking for a killer dog in Egypt and all they came up with was a fox. But I do give them kudos for going into Chernobyl and checking that out. That was pretty impressive.

A Haunting isn’t so much a ghost hunting as it is ghost stories. The re-creations are awesome and it always gives me chills. But it seems a little over the top at times.

Ghost Adventures:

is where it spins a little out of control. The guys are WAY over-the-top and too into seeing things and provoking spirits. Which doesn’t really lead to anything. Their night vision always just ends up making them creepy. I watched one episode and it was mostly “dudes! and what was that?!” And my favorite was “I just felt something on my leg! Dude! Wanna check it out!!” And he had scratches!! AHHHH!!

And then it all goes wrong with Extreme Ghost Hunters(which I couldn’t find a picture for). Holy lord, who gave three rednecks HD cameras with night vision?!? Seriously oh and they’re not always in the dark in those places like other shows because you can clearly see all the camera lights. They do rituals that they tell you not to try at home and try to scare you with awesome graphics between cuts. It’s bad. Favorite line: “Dudes I’ve never hunted ghosts on water. I don’t know anyone who HAS!!”

Then it gets worse. Last night I found Ghost Lab on the Discovery Channel. Really Mike Rowe? How many shows can you narrate for?! I’ve recorded it for further study but so far, not so scary, not any ghosts popping up.

So with all these ghost hunting shows on now I want to get into the mix. So here’s my pitch.
An all woman group of ghost hunters. And they could all wear pink! Because that’s what women do when they get their own shows.
Leslie and I were talking about this the other day. And she told me that if I had a ghost hunting show she would dress as a hobo ghost and jump out at me at every house that I investigated. And I thought how awesome would that be?! The audience would be at first thinking “why is that hobo ghost sippin’ on Night Train.” And then she would jump up yelling “HOBO GHOST!” and I would say “Oooh Leslie!!” And then from then on every episode the audience would wonder when the hobo ghost would appear.
I have yet another pitch… Little People Ghost Hunters. I’m waiting for E! to get that one. They don’t have a show about little people or ghosts yet….I’m emailing them today. (not really)

 

Things I love. The short list.

I do a lot of “things that annoy me” so I figured I better take my mom’s approach and try to be more positive. Yeah, yeah, pat me on the back, go ahead you know you want to!

  • The number one thing I love is my family. No not Jesse and Oscar family, wait, yes I love them. But I’m talking about my family that I grew up with. They’re always ALWAYS there for me. No matter what, we’re all so different yet all so much a like. I couldn’t live with out any of them in my life.

  • I love the faces that Oscar makes. I wish I had a good camera to take all the face pictures of him I can. Here’s a couple: 
I don’t really know if he’s showing me his boobs or what.

One day I was bored, and I drew on his face.

That’s his “cheese” face. Right before he tells me to stop and go away.

This one he does a lot lately. It’s not the best version of it but you get the idea.

  • My friends, they rank right up there with my family. Like my family they’re pretty much there for anything. And even though I haven’t keep up with all of them I know if something happened that was important they would all be there for me.
  • Reading. I could read all day every day. I think this one of my big reasons why I love blogs so much. I like to read everything and anything. Suggest something, send me a book, whatever I’ll try it. I have a good imagination and usually a book for me is better then a movie any day.
  • The ocean. I really would love to live by the ocean one day. That’s a big dream of mine. I love the sounds and smells of the ocean. 

  • I do love to scrapbook but I have to do it in spurts because my creativity is very short lived. And now that I don’t have enough room I don’t know how much I’ll be able to do. 

  • I have loved all animals since the time I was little, I even held field mice and garden snakes when I was younger. I have always LOVED cheetahs. And I don’t think I’ve put pictures of my tattoo of my cheetah up on this blog so here’s a couple pictures. The cheetah is an old tattoo I got it when I was 22 I believe, and it is “photo real” so that’s why its light, oh and because my skin sucks in ink like crazy. The rest of it just got done last year in September. It’s already faded and not quite finished yet. We didn’t have the money to finish it. 

So there’s my list, well what I can think of at the moment.

Stolen Idea…

Okay so I was wondering around through twitter and landed on a blogger http://onesmarmymama.blogspot.com and read her blog and liked it and she had a post about her celebrity crushes. And I’m SURE this has been done before but I hadn’t seen it yet. So I asked her if I could steal the idea because I need more ideas for postings. And before I let her answer I did it.

Here is my top 5 celebrity crushes…we’ll start with male because I likes the mens. And maybe I’ll move on to women because there are a couple out there that I would switch teams for…

2. Jason Statham. Okay I loved him since Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. And then I loved him even more when I saw the muscles. mmm I might be drooling a bit.

3. Denzel Washington-Dudes. I LOVE Denzel. I would marry Denzel. I would walk away from my life as it is right now for Denzel. 
 
4. Chris Farley. Just to show that I’m not completely shallow. I will admit to liking the big boys. Chris Farley is my hands down all time favorite comedian. I honestly cried when I found out he died. I wanted to meet him and tell him I loved him so bad. I swear to god.

5. Ryan Reynolds ahh the pretty boy toy. His abs, I could live in the ridges. *shudders*

So I know this list is mostly very stereotypical but hey I think I am pretty shallow so deal with it! And I made it two posts in a row!
Wow!!
