No matter what I say, I will always love you...

 Listening non stop to Adele's 21. God Lord I am so glad this was not out a year ago... This kinda says it all...
"Next time I'll be braver, 
I'll be my own savior, 
When the thunder calls for me, 
Next time I'll be braver, 
I'll be my own savior, 
Standing on my own two feet"

And she covers one of my all time favorite songs...LoveSong by the Cure.

"Whenever I'm alone with you 
You make me feel like I am home again 
Whenever I'm alone with you 
You make me feel like I am whole again"

Sweet Jeebus every word this woman sings speaks directly to me. 

"I heard that you're settled down, 
That you found a girl and you're married now, 
I heard that your dreams came true, 
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you, 
Old friend, why are you so shy? 
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light,"

Is it wrong that after all this time, I still miss him? I don't miss "it"... But I miss him. 

If I could talk to him I would ask, "How much of it was real? And how much of it was lies?"

As I look back with a clearer mind, I realize that,perhaps, I saw only what he wanted me to see. Maybe everything we had was just a lie...and really, in his world none of it matters. Except to me...

TOEMAGEDDON.... Really people???

By now, I'm sure most of you have heard about this... the picture in the J Crew ad of the mom and her son, and her son has pink toenails. Nothing like a little pink nail polish to set off the right wing homophobic peeps. Really?? It amazes me that people think that a little polish is a statement about trans-gender children... Trans-gender children? Good God! It's a mom and her son having fun.This child doesn't see the sexual rules drawn in the sand yet. He has no clue that these bias's exist... all he see's is some quality time with mom, doing something she does all the time. Jon Stewart said it perfectly - if this little boy goes to a fair and gets his face painted like a cat, does that mean he's a cat trapped in a little boys body?? Good Lord people lighten the frig up!! FYI If you are on FaceBook look up Pink Piggies. It's a new facebook page celebrating the beautiful individual-ness of us all!

 Here's Jon Stewart's take on... TOEMAGEDDON!!!
