poor glory has been defining herself on flickr conversationally since april of last year. without a camera. (poor me!) however ---and gents and dolls, this is a mighty great *however* --- a camera is almost within reach. we're talking two weeks tops, here.

YAY for that. YAY a HUNDRED MILLION TIMES. i am so freaking excited. wee!

so. it's a great time to begin a journal. this way i get to chronical my anticipation from the very beginning to its delightful finish -- complete with what i hope will be awe-inspiring digital images. i dearly love inspiring myself and i look so very cute with my jaw dropped open and my eyes all sparkling and everything. wait and see! xoxo

intellectual detoxing
i detoxed my brain after reading harry potter, with some lloyd c douglas. whom i adore as an author. in this particular novel, Dr Hudson discovers the secret to success and happiness lies in the helping of others. but. not in a flamboyant or recognized way. he helps individuals in quiet ways... and enlists their secrecy. secrecy is crucial -- if the ways he blessed others became known, the act wouldn't feed his soul the way an unrecognized act would.

i read this for the first time 6 years ago. it rocked me hard. i've been helped by people in the past ...family, church folks, etc .. and was at times greatly embarrassed by how widely known the help i had received was. ...i felt like... i dunno .. less of a person for needing something i couldn't provide myself with. all the congrats my hero received just underscored my failure.

i read this then and had a total epiphany ... certain people had surely robbed themselves of something purely rewarding by settling for the accolades of mere people. my own gratitude for the help they gave not withstanding, of course. because i honestly would have starved twice and died of injuries once, if not for the helping hands of other people. i was then and to this day remain grateful.

however, i learned from those experiences to help others more quietly. i'm out loud about my women's shelter and crisis pregnancy center involvement because .. that's a cause i want more people to be involved in. but. the quiet help .. the personal soul-feeding one person can offer another .. that's altogether a different matter. this book, and other ones like it (ie The Holy Bible haha) influenced my resolve to live and give this way

drab chicken [deleted] says:

it's worth a read, buddy. the book he wrote before this one (published in 1929) was titled Magnificent Obsession and alluded to Dr Hudson's Secret Journal alot. --- this book ---a book that had not yet been written, if you follow. so. he wrote the journal but *not* as a sequel, but rather as an expansion of the philosophy that made Magnifiect Obsession so important. FYI and all

pinata party
saturday birthday party. ariana turned 7 -- she's ashley's best friend. in this photo ashley had just whacked the piniata off of it's string, where after it sailed across the yard it landed unharmed on the grass. she was embarrassed. that's ariana beside her. they wore matching earrings and grass skirts. aww

i had my own embarrassing moment too. ariana's aunt by marriage and i went to high school together and once upon a time she almost accidentally kicked my ass. our converation ran like this, just about two secconds after we recognized each other:

me: did you lick my sister's pickle?
her: i'm gonna kick your ass!

i was a senior in high school the year my sister was a freshman, but she was my height and weight. her hair was redder and my boobs were bigger, but if you didn't know us both ... we looked like just about the same person.

one weekend, my sister ordered a sandwich from chik-fil-a with two pickles. she saw the girl making it lick one of the pickles. so. she raised hell and actually yelled about it. long story short, the girl ---who really did do it, mind you, was fired.

well. we didn't know it, but we all went to school together. how we discovered it was mandy -- that's her name, saw me in the hall and got right up in my face.

her: YOU GOT ME FIRED!
me: huh?
her: YOU GOT ME FIRED FOR LICKING YOUR PICKLE
me: but .. i don't even *like* pickles.

yeah. now. she was actually yelling really loud and at the time i knew nothing about the situation at *all*. so. i was standing there looking as confused as i was, while this girl set down her books readying herself to kick my ass. meanwhile, i was panicking a little and i blinked hard while i tried to diffuse her anger with this ridiculous piece of information. then. then! thank you GOD! my sister came running over

my sister: YOU'RE THE FUCKING BITCH WHO LICKED MY PICKLE

what resulted was about 30 seconds of yelling, before the math department came and hauled them both away for being disruptive. mandy later on nodded her head once in my direction, which i took as an apology.

now. fast forward to the party yesterday. read this again:

me: did you lick my sister's pickle?
her: i'm gonna kick your ass!

*dramatic pause

*shared laughter

for a second there i thought maybe she wasn't going to laugh. phew

Yeah - I was a janitor for the high school way back when. Most of my run ins (and there aren't too many) go like this:

Them: Didn't I kick your ass in high school?
Me: Yeah - didn't I pee in your hall locker ?

Usually ends with me walking off with a smart ass smile.

Oh - I'm suppose to say something nice now right? How did the date go?

hey jallen. well. she licked the pickle on a dare, i was told. stupid thing about it was that the kitchen was completely visible to the customers --nothing but some hanging lights obrstructed the view-- which is how my sister was able to see the lick so very clearly.

welcome back, bellababe. xo

simon, ew. right?

hey diddle diddle
the date. okay. his name was jeff. i'd met jeff before so we were at least superficially familiar with each other from an earlier day. on that day, he displayed a good, if somewhat caustic, sense of humor. dunno what happened but he was in a particularly foul mood last night.

during dinner he insisted on calling the lady waiting on us -- whose name was Stephanie by the way, 'server'. "Hey server? Yes, this needs to go back to the kitchen --here's a long freaking list of reasons why I'm unsatisfied with it." ...that's me paraphrasing there at the end, but you get the idea. before we left, he told the lady that she'd receive no tip because she was inattentive.

um? i thought she was fine. he didn't like that she addressed me before she addressed him, in the beginning. that's what princess jeff's problem was. blah. he got up at one point and spent time away from the table doing who knows what, during which time i offered stephanie his phone number so she could hook up with him. he came back to us laughing together and rightly assumed we were laughing at him.

well. the whole date was supposed to be a double -- with our shared friends mick and april. but. while on our way to nashville april got a call saying her mother was in the hospital. we drove straight there. mick and april spent hours in the hospital while jeff and i spent a couple of hours walking around in it.

we passed a door with a sign taped to it that read ALLERGY TO LATEX. i laughed a little and said "sucks to be his girlfriend". jeff didn't get it. he was still being pouty about dinner. he tried to save face by explaining to me the role of waiters and waitresses and how in order to be a good one, one has to learn that small talk has a time limit. (see? he was *totally* bitter about me talking to our 'server'. hahaha)

this got on my nerves a bit. so i turned to look at him, as we were walking and said, "jeff. what is it you do for a living?" he told me he worked at the Home Depot. i turned my head forward again and said "Alright, then." it galled me that he was putting on airs.

i don't see a second date in our future. he'd have better chances scoring with stephanie.

Jonathan Riverwalker says:

the date from hell story is awesome - but maybe he was nervous and fucked up cause he was trying too hard? hahaha

server - hahahaha

i love that the glory sense of humour cannot be squashed - sucks to be his girlfriend - hahaha

now about the pickle - my uncle morris is a great accordion player and one time he was sitting on a big barrel of soloman gundy (which for you landlubbers is pickled herring - ie fish bits - yum)

and his fly was open and i says to him
"Do you know your dick's in the pickle barrel?"
to which he replied - maybe if you hum a few bars...

Jeff didn't get it, huh? At least your sense of humour kept functioning, Glory.. And I don't know why you're being so mean to Stephanie.

BTW, I'm going to look for Dr. Hudson's Journal also. When I was a boy (way back in the 50's, my mother had a couple of books by Lloyd C Douglas, including "The Robe", which I read. Hadn't come across this one though.

cool, Rob. Douglas is prolific and just about anything he writes is worth the time it takes to read it. oh ... and ... quipping is my knee-jerk reaction to tension. if anything, jeff amplified my need to perform stand up comedy all night long. for that reason, you have my permission to feel sorry for him.

word, Lola. burnt and unbuttered.

true enough. i certainly have the time though. my evenings are wide open. as wide open as the ocean during SHARK WEEK. which it just so happens to be. so who cares about freaking jeff and his snobbish tendencies. i am glory defined and i have shark week!

to answer your question, april shot me an email. she knew i considered the whole date a dud and she thought it was a riot that jeff told mick i was .. yanno ... so possibly that was just some male posturing on jeff's part. how could he know micks a total girl and would email april who would then email me.

Talk about stating the obvious! I had an inkling way back in early January when the demure photograph way at the top of this page announced "hello, hello, meet Glory". Which is not to say that I felt entitled in any way to a fuck, or that she would find me fuckable.

I see blood in the water during Shark Week.

when jonathan was out traveling he took time out to pick me up a postcard and mail it to my office. woohoo! the stamp is a yellow leaf haha. it's the cutest thing. leaf stamps hahaha ONLY CANADA.

i received it on a day when i was quite tearful and lonely. everything i tried to do fell to crap. i'd resigned myself to sucking, then i got mail. a hug from a friend out of nowhere means everything sometimes. lest my diary consorts get the wrong idea ... i trust jonathan. we're not rolling in hay. men and women don't have to be naked to get along. necessarily.

anyway, his friendship blesses me. i keep his postcard next to a moocard my closest friend (outside of Lola) mailed to me. they reside together in a manila folder labeled STUFF.
i'm waiting for the day i catch heather in my drawer so i can say DON'T TOUCH MY STUFF. but. she's not really nosy. that is a pity, really. yelling that out would amuse me

I'm telling on myself right now.

I have like this huge box... full of... uh letters and stuff.

I dated this girl from 15-17 which is like eons long for that age.. From 9th grade to summer between 11th-12th grade.

I have a box full of correspondence between us two, I mean, seriously a boxful. It's sort of embarrassing now, but, hey, I still have it.

She was my first love my first lay, my first bitter breakup, my first everything.

After about 10 years we got back in touch via email and stuff. We're still the sort of friends that get in touch once a year or so. Just to check on each other.

I learned SO MUCH about what kind of relationship I did NOT want from her. like, totally.

ah memories.

My treasured collection is a postcard the ex-girlfriend before I married my wife--- sent to me a few years ago (and a few years into the marriage)-- from the Himalayas. Turns out she was backpacking in Nepal,, AND THOUGHT OF ME. That was cool.

Anyway. rambling again.

Nice rambling. I have a big box filled with postcards, and two more of travel memorabilia, maps, brochures and stuff, which somehow survived the few moves we've made in the last few years. Correspondence from old girlfriends got thrown out years ago, and I'm sorry now that I did. One in particular did contact me by email last year, too.

i'll tell you the truth about something. the most precious gift i have ever received in my life is a handwritten poem. i was 16. my boyfriend wrote the entire thing in the most beautiful caligraphy i've ever held in my hand. the best part ... the precious part ... is this:

he learned caligraphy in order to write me that letter. i've never been touched by anything more. to him, i was worth learning something new for. that was a lot of trouble to take. it wasn't lost on me.

once upon a time i had it framed. it hung in my home for years. it didn't survive my divorce. i left in a hurry, which you may know if you know my story, and left many important-to-me things behind. the poem was a casuality and i still mourn it a little

Wow glory, that's a beautiful expression of love. I can honestly say it never occurred to me to learn something new for my wife - for the sheer sake of impressing her. I must say I need to put that idea in my back pocket, to focus on when the time is right either with her, or whomever else I may be matched up with in the future.

Calligraphy. Ha, go figure.

I have saved all my sons notes to me and all the drawings he did. I come across them once in a while and go all mushy too. I don't recall ever having a man learn something new for me. That is so special. Where is the guy? hmmmmm?

I learned calligraphy as a pre-teen, just because I was such a geek. It has never impressed any boy, just so you know, Glory!

*wonders if I should write Glory a calligraphic postcard
