In a fairy tale, not so long ago lived Mickety Mack the Rescurer..well actually he was a rabbit.
Mickety spent so much time helping others; he tended to neglect himself. People started to depend on Mickety for so many things that at times it would be overwhelming. He was so popular, he even had his own theme song:
There goes Mickey
There goes Mack
No He’s Not a Mouse
But a Rabbit
MICKETY MICKEY MACK
MICKEY-Y-Y-Y-Y MACK RABBIT
He’s the coolest rabbit
In the neighborhood
While the other’s are hanging
He’s out doing good
If you get in trouble,
Mickey Mack’s on the way
To Save the Day
Mickety Mickey Mack
Mack –k-k-k Rabbitt

One night Mickety was so tired from working all day, that he couldn’t sit up straight. While getting ready for bed, the phone rang, and his best friend Trish went on and on about some problem in her life. Well Trish always had some type of drama going on. As usual, Mickety listened and talked her through her issues. Mickety was wide awake, but Trish dozed off on him and ended their conversation so she could go to bed.
After Mickey hangs up with her, he is unable to go to sleep. He drank warm milk and even tried counting sheep, but every time he closed his eyes, he saw her problems, not his, but hers swimming around in his head. By the time Mickety gets to sleep, his alarm sounds off. He couldn’t afford to sleep in because he had to complete a writing assignment that was due by noon that day.
The moral of this story: Never give more of yourself than you have to give, because what is left may not be enough to sustain you.
Due to things beyond my control, there will be no updates on the site for the next few days. Hopefully, things will be back to normal soon...fyi...due to high winds resulting from Hurricane Rita, we lost power. Until the electric is fixed, I will be visiting my local library to use their computer to check email only...and guess what happened when I went to one branch...their electric went out...smile...so I drove to another branch and it's packed and I'm about to get kicked off the computer any minute.
Have a good week and stay cool.
(My friend Kem is always sending me some good things...here's one that I want to share and I hope you have a sense of humor.)
My tire was thumping.
I thought it was flat
When I looked at the tire...
I noticed your cat.
Heard your wife left you,
How upset you must be.
But don't fret about it...
She moved in with me.
Looking back over the years
that we've been together,
I can't help but wonder...
"What the hell was I thinking?"
Congratulations on your wedding day!
Too bad no one likes your husband.
How could two people as beautiful as you
Have such an ugly baby?
I've always wanted to have
someone to hold,
someone to love
After having met you ..
I've changed my mind.
I must admit, you brought Religion into my life.
I never believed in Hell until I met you.
As the days go by, I think of how lucky I am...
That you're not here to ruin it for me.
Congratulations on your promotion.
Before you go...
Would y ou like to take this knife out of my back?
You'll probably need it again.
Happy Birthday, Uncle Dad!
(Available only in Tennessee, Kentucky & West Virginia...sorry folks...it's just a joke)
Happy birthday! You look great for your age.
When we were together,
you always said you'd die for me.
Now that we've broken up,
I think it's time you kept your promise.
We have been friends for a very long time ..
let's say we stop?
I'm so miserable without you
it's almost like you're here.
Congratulations on your new bundle of joy.
Did you ever find out who the father was?
Your friends and I wanted to do
something special for your birthday
So we're having you put to sleep.
So your daughter's a hooker,
and it spoiled your day.
Look at the bright side,
it's really good pay
I hope my male readers are not offended by this post, because I'm not a male basher. In fact, I love men in all shapes and sizes and I think there's a good guy in every man--that is if he keeps the dog in him at bay (smile).
There's a website out there that exposes cheaters. If you've dated a guy and he cheated on you, there's a place for the information in cyberworld. Can you believe it?
Now you know it's an epidemic, if you have to have a website to expose the jerks. (Men, don't hate...start your own website...because some of my sisters are cheaters too...hey, just keeping it real).
Are you a cheater? If so, do you think it should be exposed on a website for people all around the world to see?
Remember that old saying, what goes on in the dark, will come out in the light...well in this case, the next woman you dog out, might be the one to add your name to that website...so keep your zipper closed and your mouth shut...or better yet, if you want to cheat...get the hell out of the relationship and save you and the woman some trouble.
Okay...did I say I wasn't male bashing...did it seem like I had some bent up frustration from a previous relationship...you doggone right :)
For those curious to check the site out, it's located @ http://dontdatehimgirl.com/home/.
It's this guy who has made every effort in the past few months to let me know he's interested in more than a merely "hello" greeting. I've kept him at arm's length because after dealing with my ex, I felt like I needed a breather and I'm not trying to rush into anything and I'm very careful about who I let into my "innercircle."
Well, anyway, this same guy appears to be "the perfect" guy at a mere glance. But beneath the surface, he's a player. He doesn't reallize I know and if I didn't have my "extra-sensitive" radar up right now, it would have gone overlooked possibly. One thing about a player,they have ways of knowing the right things to say. The words they choose seem to fit the woman they are talking to and mind you, those words will be uplifting. Don't fall for the hype. Take the words with a grain of salt and by all means keep your distance.
I haven't had to date in three years, but I'm still hip to the games men play. I want to say to him every time he comes skinning and grinning (yes, I did go there) in my face, to "get real" but I don't. Instead, I let him make a fool out of himself. I'm sure his interests in me mainly lies in the challenge that I'm not giving in to his constant and persistent attention.
Little does he know that I don't believe the hype.
In my new age (only been one day...hee hee), I know there are certain things I vow not to put up with AGAIN. When I was surfing the net last week, I came across this on Diva's blog--entitled BITCHOLOGY OF A BLACK WOMAN. Now normally, I hate the word, but Diva had a way of putting a new meaning to the word.
When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a bitch.
When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.
When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my own way, they call me a bitch.
And if that makes me a bitch , so be it. I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.
B = Beautiful
I = Intelligent
T = Talented
C = Charming
H = Hell of a Woman

As I ring in my birthday, I sit and reminisce about the last year. Although, I've had some heartbreak and pain, I have a lot to thankful for. This morning I celebrate LIFE. I decided to bring it in with my favorite drink and listening to some old school R & B songs. Today, is B-Day and I plan on enjoying every moment. So if you come across this post in cyberspace, here's a cyber cheer. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! Take a saucer and have a piece of cake
As I sit here tonight, I ask myself, "why?" Why did he feel the need to lie?
The saying, "what you do in the dark, will come to the light" is so true. Some thing my ex did in the dark came to the light. The lie he told shouldn't bother me now that we're not together, but I guess it does, because I find myself writing about it. Finding out he lied today has helped me release some insecurities. For months, I've held myself accountable for the way things ended. I now realize it wasn't me, it was him. I gave my 100 percent. He still doesn't know I know he lied. Probably because we're no longer communicating. But since he's internet savvy, I'm sure he's surfed upon my blog. Anyway, I feel better knowing that I'm no longer involved with a pathetic liar.
To be happy with a man,
you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman,
you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
A man will pay $20 for a $10 item he needs.
A woman will pay $10 for a $20 item she doesn't need.
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
