truth serum

I have no idea what the hell happened.. I think there's truth serum in alchol somtimes...

wtf was i thinking in confession;
wtf was i thinking in lowering my cguard
again i played my cards and showed my hand
in the grand game of poker.. they kept straight faces and
bested my best hand

i got cleaned out

i was never very good at cards

i was never good at having a poker face

i never did hear those fabled stories and the absolute of truths

guess its like the song sez, gotta know when to hold em, know when to fold them, know when to walk away.. know when to run...

excellent game..
the funny thing is when u still enjoy the game even though you don't realize you've been bested..

best hand i always draw is one of a kind: me: Soma

whens the next shuffle..?

Dance like no one is watching, Love ....

Well there has been soo much goin on @ work and stuff that I havent had much time to blog though a lot has gone thru my mind this past week and such

1st I truly have enjoyed meeting so many ppl from estrip @ the party.. Tony b-day party.. I realized that i do know sooo many ppl in buffalo and there are only 2 degrees of separation... thas why i never burn any bridges [or at least try not to..] i'm glad i got to meet a lot of you and speak w/ most of u, [tony,paul, timika, carey, yvonne, bill, an more... i did see alex, but i unfortunately didn't get to speak w/ her, and sawa few more.. etc.. well i'll go into it later.. but anyway cool ppl all round

2nd its busy @ work but i see more calm for some reason, must be that i have more things that i'd like or rather be doin than work but the hope and thoughts about doin them has rested my soul a bit than being just work work work

3rd i know more about me who i am what i want where im goin.. just trying to get there is a lifelong process.. but i am enjoying the jorney, sittting slightly back a bit in the chair, of the driver seat, gives a little more perspective.... than the in your face now , approach to life...

4th i am being more patient about meeting ppl. who, some i'd like to be friends with, other i'd like to be friends and more.... the delicate balance of such things... its just yes im cool w/ being friends, and i'd be cool with being more... sometimes being human and feeling invisible aren't the best feelings... esp when you don't want to
ruin either a budding friendship or build a potential relationship...

5th well i need to go out more and well i am dammit... i will be @ OPM tonight for the Quivver [john Graham] and Charles Feelgood show.. it will be an awesome time.. I will be @ the bar.. relaxing and getting my groove on.. who's with me see ya there.. say hi if i don't see ya or recognize ya.. and the science of Soma dancing will be in full effect...

there fore my title in a snapshot

'Dance like no one is watching, love like you've never been hurt.. live like today is your last day...'

simple words... applying them to your life and 'today' is the challenge...

gotta fly off to work see ya later @ OPM club e peeps

- today i feel like there's a future... unknown secretive.. teetering on a hinge that could go either way... 50/50

-today the demons are strong .. but i smile and stare in the mirror and scoff at them .. you wont take me today!

-today i have felt both ends of the spectrum of the force.. it is strong.. both evil and good

-today i shed a tear for the memory banks that access the past.. i just have to remind myself that that's what it is.... was... and i am much more and stronger than because of it

-today i have to realize i need to stop punishing myself... and give myself much more credit than i do...

-today i am both happy/sad

-today i have a deep yearning and want to share it

-today words a friend spoke to me a couple days ago resound with absolute clarity

-today i really should see my family.. i haven't seen them as much of late... mostly because its hurt a lot to see those you love the most and are closest to you.. odd isn't it?

-today i want to tell some things to ppl. but can't

-today music permeates my soul... just like it does everyday

-today is just another day...

..... i will see you all tommorrow

Brave New World

Well the title is very appropriate. Anywho who's read Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' knows what 'soma' is... also anywho who's seen THX1138 knows also.. or also 'Brave New World' the sci-fi cable tv made movie. A new site.. for me a little bit.. a new outlook, a different perspective, a new start. I have been i psuedo lurker here for a bit.. and I now know ((e:vycious)) and ((e:ladycroft)) and have met a few others most recently.. that I thought I might join this merry bunch.. besides i might actually be able to blog here about more personal stuff than ie; myspace in fear of corporate eyes finding such stuff.. it's soo odd how so many corporations don't want you to tell anything about your own life.. i can understand corporate sensitive info. and that is respectful but gees we humans are we not.. not automatons.. interacting in the analog and dgital world.. both virtually and non....

Anywho I wanted to say "HI" formally to fellow estrippers and I will blog more when I do get a chance... I've had a very interesting rollercoaster of highs and lows this past month.. and I will say meeting some of the estrip ppl. and other things.. have definetely been on the high end..

wuill blog more later.. shit i gotta fly off to work
