March 2017 Wrap-up
March continued the drama that had erupted in February and it was difficult... so very difficult... to hold my tongue.
By the end, it was almost as if we were "friends" again... although I remain unfriended on social media and haven't heard from them since. I don't care, well, I care enough to post about it, but I grew up a military brat. Friends came and went and if you didn't adapt, you were a lonely kid. I have never been lonely.
Spent the day with moms and family today... nothing extraordinary, except the food of course, and some ragtag conversation about the boy going to a strip joint and my mom saying she would drag him out by his ear... all in all, a GREAT day!!
Tim is a great friend I met through my best friend... Tim and I had made a bet. A bet about who the shoes belonged to at the end of the mid-season finale of the Walking Dead. We bet lunch. Guess who paid for who?
I had Tim take me to one of my favorite places, Uncle Angelo's inside Jerry's Nugget.
It was great to spend some one-on-one time with him.
A Friend's Sabbat
I've known Kelly since 2009. I met her on a radio show I once hosted about paganism. She came on the show and represented the Elven tradition. We made a lot of jokes about needing to have pointy ears to join but in Kelly, I found a wonderful, kindred spirit. We also share the same birthday. Sisters! After eight years, we were finally able to get together for a sabbat and I was delighted to have attended. I met her extensive group who were dynamic and friendly and participated in a most loving ritual. I was honored to have been asked to call and dismiss a quarter, and the after party food was tremendous! I do hope it won't be another 8 years for us to share a sabbat together.
Commentary from friends
RUN....... - Get out while you still can -
What?? But what does that mean? Like theirs broke and they're waiting for the new one??? -
Pod people. - Even pod people have a back up coffee maker. -
Lol there are 3 coffee makers in my house. -
Me too! I have a single serve, a regular pot, and a percolator that will make 32 cups of coffee. (Also I have an electric kettle and a French press in case you want to get fancy) -
What no coffee. Who does that !!! -
This is why my dad always travels with a single cup pot and a little container of Folgers.
The Vernal Equinox
The commentary on the last picture stemmed from my neighbors not liking Mike. It quickly turned to reminiscing and sadness; everyone still misses him deeply. However, if Evil Dave can scrounge up the video of the night Mike got shot in the ass, we have a great night ahead!

I learned a wonderful new word
(noun) Originated from Ancient Greece, nepenthe is described as something, which can make you forget your heartache, grief or suffering. (via wordsnquotes)
and I realized I have a lot of things in my life that I can classify as nepenthe
My heart was broken this month. Someone whom I loved dearly, instead of bringing an issue they had to me, chose a different way to handle it. I was crushed that this was the path they had chosen. Even moreso since the ensuing chaos has defamed another person I love and cherish. I have asked myself many times over the course of these past few days, what, if anything, could I have done to engender more trust by this individual. When I have an issue with something someone said or did, I go to the source, always to the source. I thought this was known protocol... or rather, I would have hoped that this was the protocol I have tried to instill in those around me. After days of ruminating, I realize it wasn't something I did or could have done. It was a knee-jerk reaction on their part. I am disappointed.
Because of the chaotic aftermath of the above story, I thought I would offer up a sounding board if anyone had any questions about some of the heinous social media posts that they had been seeing. I offered up the simple,
"Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have."
After an innumerate amount of private messages, and several public questions that made me pull out my dusty tarot cards, I finally had to close the thread but I have to say, it was a fun Saturday.
I'll have to do it again soon.
Our group held a book fair this month. It was awesome and I got these great pictures.
Are You Not Entertained?
Things that entertained me this month.
Sean Spicer Press Conference (Melissa McCarthy) - Saturday Night Live video
"It took a few insults delivered in a trademark shriek to hammer home that this really was Melissa McCarthy, in drag, capturing the unquestionable essence of a political figure whose public image so far has largely revolved around belligerence, alternative facts, and cinnamon gum. As soon as the assembled audience figured it out, they began cheering, causing McCarthy’s Spicer to berate them once again. “Settle down, SETTLE DOWN!,” she screeched. “Before we begin, I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start. And when I say rocky, I mean Rocky the movie because I came out here to punch you. In the face. And also I don’t talk so good.” ~quoted from The Atlantic
Everyone has a story to tell; sometimes several, including me. Here are some stories from my life and from others.
