Decisions, Decisions

If you want someone who will eat whatever you put in front of him and never says its not quite as good as his mother made it

then get a dog.
If you want someone always willing to go out,
at any hour, for as long and wherever you want .

then get a dog.
If you want someone who will never touch the
remote, doesn't care about football, and can sit
next to you as you watch romantic movies

then get a dog.
If you want someone who is content to get up
on your bed just to warm your feet and whom
you can push off if he snores .....

then get a dog.
If you want someone who never criticizes what
you do, doesn't care if you are pretty or ugly,
fat or thin, young or old, who acts as if every word
you say is especially worthy of listening to, and
loves you unconditionally, no matter what

then get a dog.
But, on the other hand, if you want someone who will never come when you call, ignores you totally when you come home, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, runs around all
night and only comes home to eat and sleep,
and acts as if your entire existence is solely
to ensure his happiness:
Watch this next picture for a minute...

then get a cat!
You thought I was going to say, 'then get a man'

Answer me this

Why would someone engage in one-night stands when what they say they seek is a highly intellectual, deeply emotional, long-term committment?

I'm not leaving

But I thought I would give you a summer tune - lyrics by Bobby Vinton

'Tho we gotta say goodbye for the summer
Darling I promise you this
I'll send you all my love
every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss
Guess it's gonna be a cold lonely summer
But I'll fill the emptiness
I'll send you all my love
every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss
I'll see you in the sunlight
I'll hear your voice everywhere
I'll run to tenderly hold you
But darling you won't be there
I don't wanna say goodbye for the summer
Knowing the love we'll miss
Oh let us make a pledge to meet in September
And seal it with a kiss
Guess it's gonna be a cold lonely summer
But I'll fill the emptiness
I'll send you all my love
every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss

As if.......

You see this is what happens when you have to stay home and wait for the GE repairman. You catch up on your blog reading at Citizen of the Month. Read an interesting comment by Finn and the next thing I know I have found my seduction sytle. Now if only I had someone to share my style with.....

New York City

I want to thank everyone that donated for me walking in the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Breast Cancer this past weekend. I believe this was the first year that the weather was absolutely beautiful the entire time. No rain and 68 degrees during the day - perfect for shorts and long sleeve t-shirts. Albeit the NYers were still wearing boots, scarves and heavy jackets. By the time all my collections get posted I will have also raised the most I have ever raised in the years I have been doing this walk - over $1800. It may not sound like a lot but I want my friends and family to give whatever amount they feel comfortable giving. So again, a big Thank You for contributing!

After the walk we went to Carnegie Deli and Susan/Lucille (who knows what her real name is) was our waittress. Feisty lady who had the whole table agog with her quick wit! "Can we order now?" "No, I get the drinks first, then take my heart tablet, then you can order your meal" I did a little shopping - 2 blouses, a skirt and 2 pairs of shoes - when did NYC stop charging tax on clothes? Of course, I had to go to the American Girl store and get my niece some accessories for her doll - Nicki (the girl of the year). You should check it out, this doll is so pretty - blond hair, light freckles and blue eyes. I was amazed at the setup - there is a beauty shop in the store that girls bring their dolls to have the doll's hair done (or redone or whatever you do with doll hair - I used to just cut it off and see if it would grow back). There is also a picture studio so girls can have their picture taken with their doll. What is so special about these dolls? Nothing from what I can tell. The dolls aren't even anatomically correct. The faces (doll heads) are very pretty and the clothes, accessories and marketing are fantastic.

Other places I ate: Dos Caminos - yummy, yummy guacomole - not your typical Mexican food fare; reservations highly recommended; Seattle Cafe - great food for decent price not a lot of seating; City Crab - good crab cakes and shrimp. Ruby Foos - the best spicy tuna sushi roll of any place I have had sushi.

All in all, it was a great trip for a worthwhile cause!
