A lot of guys ask me about girl questions…I guess cause I am one.
I saw these today and they made me smile. Corny…yes…but if I smiled, maybe you will to. Either that or I’m just in a mushy mood.
Oh…and ladies…you can do many of these to for your man.
When she stares at your mouth… Kiss her.
When she pushes you or hits you like a dummy cause she thinks she’s stronger than you, Grab her and don’t let go.
When she starts cursing at you trying to act all tough, Kiss her …………and tell her you love her.
When she’s quiet, Ask her what’s wrong.
When she ignores you, Give her your attention.
When she pulls away, Pull her back.
When you see her at her worst, tell her she’s beautiful.
When you see her start crying, Just hold her and don’t say a word.
When you see her walking, Sneak up and hug her waist from behind.
When she’s scared, Protect her.
When she teases you, tease her back and make her laugh.
When she doesn’t answer for a long time, reassure her that everything is okay.
When she looks at you with doubt, back yourself up.
When she says that she loves you, she really does more than you can understand.
When she grabs at your hands, hold hers and play with her fingers.
When she bumps into you,bump into her back and make her laugh.
When she tells you a secret, keep it safe and untold.
When she looks at you in your eyes, don’t look away until she does.
When she says it’s over, she still wants you to be hers.
When she’s mad hug her tight and don’t let go
When she says she’s ok don’t believe it, talk with her because 10 yrs later she’ll remember you
Call her at 12:00am on her birthday to tell her you love her
When she’s sick, stay up all night with her.
Watch her favorite movie with her or her favorite show even if you think it’s stupid
When she’s bored and sad, hang out with her
Let her know she’s important.
Kiss her in the pouring rain.
When she runs up to you crying, the first thing you ask is: “Whose ass am I kicking?”
Sometimes you read things that aren’t directed AT you, but are posted by others and they apply TO you so dramatically it’s almost like they WERE for you.
Such an instance happened today. It applies to me in a huge way so I thought maybe someone else could find it of use to.
Continued communication is important, so even if you and your friend are arguing it’s better than not speaking with each other at all. When we fail to talk the argument we’ve just had becomes bigger. We go over it in our minds and may even assume that our friend had certain motives for causing the argument. While we’re doing that, our friend is probably doing the same thing.
A healthy relationship is one where friends aren’t afraid to argue because they do it with the goal of coming to an understanding. They hash things out so that their friendship remains a safe place where they can be themselves.
Even if you and your friend have not had an argument, silence usually means one or both of you doesn’t care about the relationship enough to nurture it. You might wonder why your friend hasn’t called, and as a result assume they don’t care. Meanwhile, your friend is wondering the same thing about you.
If your friend doesn’t want to be an active part of the communication process, it may be time to leave the relationship behind. You can’t keep up a friendship by yourself.
My favorite pics from Vegas.
I’m not really sure where this is going to go. I have a shit load of thoughts going on in my head as of late and I’ve been told it’s good to get them out and write about them. I guess we’ll see. This could end up being therapeutic or a huge regret.
Truth be told, this should likely be a video. It’s one I’ve had in my head for several weeks. More truthiness (that is a word…I swear it), since I got my new computer in late March, I’ve had zero desire and even less time, to install the recording software back on this new beast to make a video. That might be random information and you might think it’s not relevant to this blog post, but it is…kinda. Hopefully it’ll all come together in a bit.
This last year I’ve been making gradual steps to make me happier. It’s a work in progress, as are all many major projects, but I can tell you that I’m leaps and bounds happier than I was a year ago.
What a difference a year makes. It’s been quite an epic journey. I’ve fallen out of love, in love, seen sadness and felt the most euphoric of happiness I’ve ever felt. It’s been a roller coaster but, all epic journey’s have their ups and downs. I am no exception.
It’s been through this journey that I’ve discovered a lot about myself. Some has been hard to see. I blame nobody for my fails or flaws, but I do believe we are in so many ways a product of our environment. What I mean by that is, if you surround yourself with negative people, you’ll eventually see life through your eyes. If you surround yourself with people that come from a rich and rewarding life which is filled with happiness and optimism, you’ll find yourself with a smile on your face more than you would by surrounding yourself by the opposite types of people.
I think one of my biggest flaws right now is my inability to forgive. This reality came to light after reading something tonight on a message board I once use to frequent. I’ll spare the boring details but it got me wondering why I haven’t forgiven someone when so many others have. Is this a flaw of mine, or am I justified? I don’t have the answers but the question was put in a pile of the hundreds of unanswered questions I have.
Anyway, it’s been through my quest to find the life I want to have, and answer all these question nagging in my brain, that I’ve put my video making on hold. Some people may find making video’s therapeutic. Lately, I’ve found it not fun and an obligation to you all. I likely don’t need to tell you all this because, the lack of content is evident and something you’re all smart enough to figure out on your own.
To answer many questions I’ve had though…I don’t know if I’ll make any more.
I was going to call it quits but realized I may be jumping the gun and may soon regret my decision. What I do know is that this summer is going to be insane so I figured I’d formally announce I’m taking a summer vacation of sorts and we’ll see what my life brings in the fall.
Life is a crazy thing. It’s filled with so many lessons, both good and bad, and questions sometimes I don’t know if there’s an answer to. Which, for someone like me that is an answer type person, meaning, I GOTTA KNOW DAMN IT, it makes for a tough journey sometimes.
One question, which I don’t even need to think about the answer to, is how utterly grateful I am to each and every subscriber and person that’s watched my video’s. When I say I love you all, I mean it.
Have a beautiful and romantic summer. For me, this season is WAY too short, so get out, enjoy the sunshine (just make sure you wear sunscreen!!), smell the flowers, dance in the rain and know this crazy Canadian girl is loving on you all…in a non creepy/stalker sorta way.
I’ve been asked several times what it was like at the Calgary Expo this past weekend. I don’t know how to sum it up, especially on twitter where I have barely enough letters to sneeze properly, so I thought I’d maybe attempt to share my experiences and what I learned here.

Nathan Fillion - Firefly/Serenity/Castle
John Barrowman - Torchwood

I’ve missed several folks but this list tells you of the calibre of guests they had this year.
OVERALL, our experience was amazing. If you took away this list of guests, there was still shopping!! The level of artists was awesome. I bought several copies of art that I absolutely love. We had one of our favorite artists of all time sign some of his work and he was gracious, funny (and I mean FUNNY) and engaging, spending several moments with us.
I won’t bore you all with the things that, in our opinion, went wrong because they were specific to this convention, but I will give you all some tips if you are ever thinking of attending one.
1. Be prepared for long line ups
2. Be prepared to walk. When you’re done walking, be prepared to walk more.
3. Be patient. There is a lot of cosplay and folks will stop suddenly for pictures. The line ups can get tedious. Lots of folks have no concept of anything other than their own little bubble which can be frustrating. Just be patient and remember the fun and excitement you have had so far.
4. It’s expensive - or it’s not. Truly. 3 day passes for the weekend, photo ops, art, comics, t-shirts, lunch for two days and -coughs- companion cube set us back about $800. Autographs can be SUPER expensive BUT, the panels and walking around the convention is all covered in the cost of your tickets so if you want to spend no more than that, or can’t afford to, there’s still plenty for you to do.
5. If you have a chance to meet Wil Wheaton - do so. He is likely the most amazing human being I’ve ever met.
6. If you have a chance to meet Nathan Fillion - do so. He can make my heart flutter and bring me to tears from excitement.
7. If you have a chance to meet Peter Dinklage - do so. He is just as awesome in real life as his character is on GoT.
8. Take in everything…and everyone. There were 60,000 people - all assembled under one roof - that shared the same passions and geekiness that I do. Alternately, there were things I learned and geekiness I had yet to discover. All of it was awesome.
9. In relation to #2 - wear comfy shoes.
10. Have fun.
