So Mr. Lego and I have been dating for a little over 3 months.....WOW....that seems long, but strangely not long enough at the same time.

Anywho. So Mr. Lego likes a few things.
  • technology
  • computer games
  • comedians
  • diet cherry coke
  • pizza
  • movies
  • legos
  • G.I. Joes
Yes you might think from the list I'm dating a small child. However I would classify him as more of a BIG child.....GROWN up at least in the sense that he's taller now then when he was a child...oh yeah and he has to shave....other wise I would think the same thing.

You might notice nowhere on the list does it say NATURE, OUTDOORS, SUN LIGHT. These are things I like. But Mr. Lego is a good sport and is slowly coming around. He has noticed that a lot of the things I want to do include all 3 of those things. Fairs, mini golfing, picnics at the lake, cookouts with my parents......etc. So he can stick around a bit longer........I guess :)

Day 21 of 30 days of truth

this is never ending. Look.....I know it's not REALLY never ending as I only have 9 posts left........but I'm not able to blog it feels never ending.

Day 21- your best friend is in a bad car accident and an hour before you two had a big fight, what do you do?

UHM.......go to the hospital, is this a trick question. What else would you do sit around feeling sorry that you fought with this person.....NO. My bff, Kitty and I would have forgotten about some stupid fight the minute we knew something was wrong with the other person. I can say with COMPLETE certainty that if she woke up in the hospital and I was there her first thought wouldn't be "Why is this bitch here, we just had a fight". Pretty sure that wouldn't matter ANYMORE!

And I also know if she didn't make it, she would know we didn't mean what we said. She would know that while it was being said....but that's what 15 years of friendship does.

Day 20 of 30 days of truth......or 30 posts of truth

Day 20---- Your views on drugs and alcohol.

I love alcohol. LOVE it. I like having a nice refreshing beer with some wings while watching Sunday football...who doesn't. I like having a few rum and cokes with the girls, a nice glass of wine at Christmas dinner with my other family. I LOVE alcohol.....but I don't have a problem with alcohol. I can go weeks....MONTHS without drinking and it doesn't bother me. I know PLENTY of people who can't say the same.

As for drugs.........nothing good comes from it....NOTHING.

Day 19 of 30 days.

Day 19--What do you think of religion

I think religion is great, if that's your thing. It's not so much religion that I have a problem with, it's ORGANIZED religion. I went to church form the time I was itty bitty till I graduated high school. I watched a group of "good Christians" fight tooth and nail to keep a women pastor out of our church, I watched those same "good Christians" choose not to let the younger generations take part in what was considered the traditions of the church, hanging out communion, and doing other usher type jobs. I was while our minster taught us about "the calling" and then left our church for one that would pay him more.

Don't get me wrong my church wasn't all bad, and I'm sure 90% of the churches in America are exactly the same. I could be wrong, but even church gets clicky.

My feelings are If you believe and you have that unyielding trust and blind faith in something....GOOD FOR YOU.....I tend to question things more. I also have a problem with people who think just because I don't think what you think or feel how you feel my beliefs are WRONG... who made them the deciding factor on right and wrong. and let's be real.......killing in the name of God....because that really seems like a good thing. I don't like how people use religion to scare people and make them behave how the masses think they should behave.

Day 18 of 30 days of truth

Day 18--- Your views on Gay marriage

I don't see the big deal. Maybe it's because I'm not a big religious person. But since they only want what every other married person wants.....the rights that come with being married. I don't get what the problem is. It doesn't have anything to do with God and church. They want to be able to marry the person they love, they want to be able to have the same legal rights as married people. that's all that matters. Why can't people see that. No one is trying to disgrace the sanctity of marriage..................but let's be honest, more then enough STRAIGHT married people have done that. How is that hurting your family? How does to men or two women getting married make your marriage and family any less........................of anything.

I guess I just don't understand what everyone is so afraid of. I mean yeah it's an awful scary thought for two people to get married that have absolutely no effect on your life. And when you think about it from a purely legal sense, which i think is how it should be thought of...............then that takes out the whole church view, because here in America we have this crazy "separation of church and state" or at least we fought a war to have that idea, since we don't seem to practice it every often. Or mostly just when it's handy for the christian view. I'm sure a lot of people would disagree with me, and that's fine. I'm fine with that. Because in the long marriage has absolutely no effect on my life. And regardless........I think they should be able to marry the person they love, just as much as i should be able to. Because gay, straight, bi....whatever, we are still people.

Day 17 of 30

I know the point was to do like 30 days STRAIGHT! in a row. but..........I'm falling behind. Sorry.

Day 17-- A book that changed your views on something.

I'm at a lose. I've read tons of books, but currently i can't think of one that changed my views that drastically................

I will continue to think about this one.

Day 16 of 30 days of Truth

Day 16--Something or someone you could completely live without.

CABLE! I haven't had cable in 3 1/2 years. And I don't miss it one bit.

Some people call me NUTS. LOCO. A FREAK....but only when they can pull themselves away from the TV long enough to have a coherent conversation. Which is usually during a commercial or pee break.

I don't mind not having cable. I'll be honest....i know my weakness. If i had cable I'd be laying on my couch in week old filthy eating Twinkies, picking my nose, and watching Matlock reruns.....because I could. So as to avoid such unappealing habits I opt to not have the demon Cable in my house.

And I'm poor.

Day 15 of 30 days

Day 15--Something or someone you can't live without (slightly modified to my life)

Someone I can't live without......TAYLOR, my bestest friend in the whole wide world! So I'm aware that "the whole wide world" is a very large area....but There's only 1 TAYLOR. thank god for that. Trust me this world couldn't handle 2 of HER! But she lives thousands of miles away right now in smelly old Denver, Co. ....OK OK, it doesn't smell there, does have an aroma but it's not a bad one as I might have implied. unless the wind blows to the left....then watch the hell out. Since high school (roughly 10 years) she has lived in the Boston area, HAWAII, Hershey, Lancaster, And DENVER! uhmmmmm.........just a thought but maybe she is trying to get away from yours truly??? NAH! So we don't see each other much....maybe once a year. But we talk for an EXTENDED amount of time on the phone. No really, it's rather unhealthy at times. like 3 hours unhealthy. hmmm.....did they ever find any true to that whole "cell phones cause cancer" because if so, we are so fucked.

Last Christmas at her parents house!

So Labor day weekend just ended,,,,which just about means summer has gone bye byes. BOO! But then again fall is my favorite time of year, so i wont complain TOO much!

Labor day weekend means one thing around these parts....KIPONA. Kipona is a food and arts festival in Harrisburg. and i finally got to go this year. One of the perks of having a boyfriend (a super duper boyfriend) is i have some one to go to things like this with, or someone to MAKE go to things like this. We had fun. It was a very Long day and we were beat when we got home, but it was a ton of fun.

I found an awesome little stand where they were selling Clay Monsters which of course I had to bring home. check them out they are so cool.

check out their site. the people are from Baltimore, Md.

Day 14 of 30....sort of!

I know. I know. It's been over a week. I'm just.........blah. Works been really busy, and life has been busy! what a mess. So I'm back. I thought about catching myself up. doing 10 days of truth today. but I've decided to just continue where i left off. which was.....(looking back) day 13. So here goes

Day---a letter to a Hero who let you down.

Dear Magic Bullet,
I'm not sure where to begin. For so long I looked up to you and your blending abilities. I stayed up nights watching and memorizing every aspect of the greatest infomercial in the history of EVER. I mean, really your infomercial was pure genius, the acting-Superb. The lighting -superb. The product-An amazing advance in technology.

I was, in awe of your food making wonder. so easy. Throw the cheese in toss in some peppers, place it on the magic bullet and 1,2........3, cheesy salsa. it seemed so dare i say, Magical. Same easy steps to make fresh homemade PESTO, omelets, frozen drinks....the possibilities were endless.

So imagine the sheer excitement that swept through my body on Christmas morning 2008. The holiday twinkle in my eye shone brighter then the star on my parents tree, because of you dear Magic Bullet.

Fast forward- You suck! And not even in a remotely cool, rebel kind of way. I mean in a completely useless, just taking up space kind of way. The frozen drink function.........SUCKED. don't get me wrong i like when my appliances smell as tho they are on brings a certain amount of uncertainty to the evening. Cheese chopping.......SUCKED. I'll give you this, you do mix up a wicked omelet....however so does my whisk and it's nearly as much of a hassle.

So to sum things up Magic Bullet........I'm sad. Oh wait.......did you hear that ........(thump).....that was your cheap ass falling off the pedestal i put you on. Try not to get your junky mechanical parts on my floor.

Thanks for NOTHING!
Amy McMean
