Thanks for your concern, darlin..
But I AM going to be okay..
What I WON”T be .. is getting invloved in another online friendship..relationship..(You make up your own label) like that one again. The timing was exactly right for what I shared with him.. The planets were all in alignment at that exact moment in my life.
I am not there any longer. Not that I don't have needs.. or voids.. or empty places. I do.. Maybe I always will. But I won't be looking to fill them here.. in this cyber, fantasy world.
This Big BLue Ball is still an amazing.. fabulous.. marvelous place. and I intend to embrace it.. explore it.. visit all the attractions.. Sometimes one of the rides may be a little dangerous.. or make me queazy. but that doesn't mean that I shouldn't climb aboard the next one with less excitement, enthusiasm or optimism. Gimme a minute.. I gotta grab my gravol and buckle up.. WHeeeeeeeee!!!
Soooooooo.. I hear that Australia is very pretty in the Winter, spring, summer and fall..
A gazillion miles and a big pond? What's that when there's the promise of popcorn and hot jets of water?
You are a doll.. Mwaaah!Quote:If you could take back anything you did in life, erase the slate, would you?
Knowing that doing so may change you, change history.
That is a whole lotta question you got there. What is life without a few regrets? I don't have a good head for quotes unfortunately.. but there is some perfectly good saying about.. Great love and Great Success aren't acheived without great risk. And sometimes, one takes a huge risk on the wafter thin possiblity that something.. completely wonderful will result and we have to be prepared for whatever destiny or fate throws our way. Sometimes … you are left with a bitter taste in your mouth.. and an ache behind your eyes, and a massive weight on your soul. Regret. But.. there are also lessons to learn. And promises to make and keep. And opportunities to grow.
Let me… do some inventory, darlin.. And get back to you..:)
Ahhhh .. Romance!! That and the opposable thumb separate us from the rest of the animals. Hot water, cold wine and music are wonderful, but not critical.
Romance can be as simple as a sofa, a good movie, and popcorn with extra salt and butter..(All the better to lick off their fingers!) It is the mood of the couple, more than the ambience of the situation. To sit together, her right side of body, dissolving into his left, head on shoulder, hands held gently, fingers silently tracing knuckles and wrists and the valleys between each finger. A shared laugh, a sigh, and a sideways glance, just to reassure yourself, that he/ she is real.. and yours.
Sweat pants, or silk blouse, expensive perfume, or… ivory soap, candle light or fluorescent, matter only incrementally. Romance is in the heart. And the heart has a knack for bathing each couple in the perfect light, air-brushing away blemishes, bumpy noses, love handles, and receding hair lines.making soda taste like champagne, and slathering you both in pheremones, that cause your upper lip to sweat, your brain to buzz and your heart to pound. Romance is a feeling, that transforms us, makes us beautiful, and graceful and interesting, and sexy and confident, and …. Ahhhhhhhh.. Romance!!
Cause I need to be in his head to understand how a man who can write a check for a zillion dollars and even more importantly.. not have it bounce! can allow that.. nose to remain on his face. And.. what significance WAS to that single white glove, Mike?? And the Moon-Walk?? Were ya just.. like.. slipping?? and went…”whoaaaaaaahhaaaa” and your foot slid and “Shazam!” It was created??
Is it a coincedence that he happened to be best friends with.. Liz, Brooke, AND the monkeys.. all at the same time?? And.. what does that much money feel like when you.. throw it up in the air, and frolic around underneath, singing and dancing?? And.. my daughter still has her red, satin, many zippered “Thriller” jacket! Did you want to buy it back for.. oooooooohh… a million dollars?? 🙂 Oh.. and….

So.. This is what I am looking for. I have Odigo, and MSM, and Yahoo, and ICQ.. And I am STILL not happy!! I love the.. operability of Odigo. I like the look and feel of it. I like the ease of use. I don't like the s l o w n e s s , and how solar activity, and fluctuations in the GAP stock can interfere with message transmission. I love how I can easily search for a new friend to chat with, and even narrow the paramaters to relate to my interests.. or location.
But, I am looking for… something fresh, new, funky, fun, and still easy to use, that has some interoperability as well.
I hear a lot of names dropped, such as Aim, Jabber, Maxxchat, Buddy, Paltalk, etc, but I don't have the time to download and test each one. Sooooo.. I am gonna throw this question to the BBB wind.. and see what it blows back at me…
Mmmm…Yeah. Rene and I tend to agree on alot of things.. and purple is one of them. I used to think black was my color. (They say.. and “THEY” are the experts in this field..”It is sooo slimming! It is sooo mysterious! It is sooo.. sophisticated!” It is soooo.. well… black!)
Now I have to go with purple.. Not the mauve-y color.. but the rich, dark, jewel-like grape-y purple that you can almost smell, and taste, the color is so lush. I like it cause it reminds me of.. royalty, and even though my Tiara-rack is Tiara-less, I can pout like a princess! And.. walk with a book on my head like a princess! Soo.. I think that those two factors alone qualify me to enjoy purple. Velvety, deep purple.. Toenails.. fingernails.. lipstick…and look how great it goes with black!!
I would have to ask the dreaded..S & M Question.. Is there enough soul mates to go around in this world? Do we need to share? or.. is there one per? And.. exactly how difficult are they supposed to be to find? I realize that nothing good in this world, comes easily, but have you hid them in very, sneaky spots where the average person would NEVER look? Do you sometimes, put them right in front of our noses,but their eyes are brown, not hazel, and their shape is slightly soft and not the glistening hard body that we had been looking for, and we walk past them and keep searching? Or.. Are they just a .. fantasy? An ellusive dream? Sigh..That is what I would ask. And then I would ask..
And.. God? Where is mine?
I have done both, sometimes successfully, and occasionally, lived to regret my decision. Sometimes the regrets come instantly, some inch their way in slowly over time.
For me, the best decisions have been made by reacting with my heart, and following it up with some soul searching, and then letting my brain take over and think it through, weighing the pros and cons carefully. Then I usually turn to someone I trust to get an objective opinion, but at this point, I have a pretty clear idea of what I should do, and I usually just want them to reaffirm my decision.
I am going through a situation right now that my heart and head are fighting over. My heart is telling me to act one way, and my mind is persuading me to – slow down, take my time, and do the opposite. In the meantime I just spin my wheels, and wait for an epipheny.

Yes, I tend to agree with you. I have tried Yahoo, MSM, ICQ, AIM, Firetalk, Paltalk, and a myriad of others and always come back to Odigo. Yup! It's quirky and unpredicatable. But it's very user friendly, “cute” and has a definate.. warmness about it that is lacking in many of the others.
Now, if only we could convince more people to use it!! One drawback that it DOES have is a limited user base. If you are looking for a lot of variety, and constantly like to bop around,meeting new people, you may get a bit bored overtime. But if you want an effective, “fun” , convenient, and easy to use Chat program to stay in touch with your friends, Odigo is the one..
My story with online messaging began less than a year ago. I began a “chance” email relationship with a person I had met while perusing an advice site. I wasn't really looking to give or recieve, just looking.
It was my very first “online” relationship and I found it neither strange nor frightening which the media hype and stories of others had led me to believe. It was a very positive, wonderful experience. I shared my deepest secrets and fears which I had been hesitant to share with people in my “real” life, and he in turn shared his dreams and desires with me and we supported each other in times of crisis with long emails which never failed to make me smile and feel better.
Over time we found Instant messaging through Yahoo and then Odigo. Since then, I have had the opportunity to meet others online and friendships were formed that have warmed my heart and filled the gaps in my life. My world has opened up in a way which I had not even imagined was possible. These very real people on the other end of this “fragile wire” have supported me, nurtured me, amused me, entertained me and yes, amazingly, even loved me.
I can't imagine life on this Big Blue Ball without the significant blessing I recieve from my online friends and family. The connection may be made through a cable or bounced off the satellites a world away… but make no mistake….it is very real.
