A Little Bit About Me

A Little Bit About Me

Well let’s see….. I am not the talk show host in Australia that everyone hits this page looking for. If I had Eric Bana within five feet of my person believe me it wouldn’t be fit for broadcast TV.

I am born and raised in the Bronx in NYC. I’m still here with no intention of leaving. There aren’t that many other places that you can get anything you want at 3:00am in the morning and I am definitely into the whole idea of instant gratification. Patience was not a virtue bestowed upon me.

I read way more than the average person, been known to lock the world out and kill off a dozen or so paperbacks in two or three days. The titles wouldn’t impress anyone as they are all generally fluff and that’s the way I like it. I want a good story, a made up, entertaining piece of fiction. If I felt like being centered in reality I wouldn’t be reading. My collection of vampire fiction is rather impressive I must admit and it should be as it’s been twenty years in the making.

Living the single life, sometimes it’s by choice and sometimes it’s not. Apparently my ideal is not easy to find and when I have found them I couldn’t keep them. Kind of sucks but it’s been fun along the way to the end. If you know of any tall, dark, handsome (not pretty), sexy, alpha male, hate broadway, bit of a Neanderthal, honor of a knight men that are out and about hunting feel free to send them my way. Shouldn’t be too hard to find…yeah right. Never said I wasn’t picky and unrealistic.

I am absolutely fascinated by other people’s talents. Everyone has something they do very well and I like to watch them do it. I’m still trying to figure out what my special talent is. I can do many things, some of them very well but I haven’t ever felt like there is one particular thing I excel at. although I make great French toast and mashed potatoes.

Addicted to computer games and watching Law & Order probably should not be something I freely admit to but alas it is true. I tend to like expensive things and am lucky enough to be able to have those things yet my most prized possessions are old letters from friends, pictures I keep in a box, and little things I’ve collected from people along the way. Most women press roses, I have a dandelion. It was the nicest and sweetest gift I ever received.

I have two kitties who suffer all my maternal instincts. No I am not a “cat person”, I love animals in general and have always had a pet be it a dog, fish, bird..etc. I have a philosophy that we find each other when the time is right and it always works out just fine. Did I mention I am allergic to cats? But they’re my luvies so we work it out.

I’m obsessed with trying to fight the whole aging thing (1971, do the math) and will probably be needing therapy soon.

Okay so that’s enough about me. I didn’t create this site with any particular direction in mind just going to let it evolve into whatever it happens to become.

Entry for November 4, 2008

Wow! Haven’t written anything in a while. Could be the new addiction to POTC online. I know, I know almost 40 and still addicted to video games. It’s a good thing to keep the kid inside alive!

Today was the big day… yes I voted. Talk about something so many of us take for granted and view as a big pain in the ass. If I hadn’t voted I would have ended up feeling very ashamed. I was talking to one of my co-workers and he immigrated years ago from Haiti, listening to him talk about his life there and the consequences of voicing your opinions and beliefs, there is was no possible way I could take the right I was born with and throw it away.

Halloween was fun, have done the right thing and brought the leftover candy to work. Fattening up your friends is always the better choice 🙂

I miss the sun and the heat. I can appreciate all the seasons and the beauty unique to each but the truth is that I have begun the countdown of days until Spring. I miss my garden and the smell of grass mixed with hot tar, sounds of neighbors on their stoops. Can you say city girl?

“I must be strong”

Asserters are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Stand up for yourself… and me.
  • Be confident, strong, and direct.
  • Don’t gossip about me or betray my trust.
  • Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.
  • Give me space to be alone.
  • Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don’t flatter me.
  • I often speak in an assertive way. Don’t automatically assume it’s a personal attack.
  • When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that’s just the way I am.

What I Like About Being a EIGHT

  • being able to take charge and meet challenges head on
  • being courageous, straightforward, and honest
  • getting all the enjoyment I can out of life
  • supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me
  • upholding just causes

What’s Hard About Being a EIGHT

  • overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don’t intend to
  • being restless and impatient with others’ incompetence
  • sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it
  • never forgetting injuries or injustices
  • putting too much pressure on myself
  • getting high blood pressure when people don’t obey the rules or when things don’t go right

EIGHTs as Children Often

  • are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit
  • are sometimes loners
  • seize control so they won’t be controlled
  • fugure out others’ weaknesses
  • attack verbally or physically when provoked
  • take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

EIGHTs as Parents

  • are sometimes overprotective
