WTHGRIM?

Argh!

Why are all the clothes for El Jay so expensive? I want a white hoodie and it's like $2349380905829058290.

WHYYYYYYYYY?

<3 Right Now

Quickest emotional rebound ever

Wowwwwwwww. This morning got off to a stellar start. I had NO expectations after last night (and also owe lefthand_path an apology for maybe scaring him), and didn't think I'd sleep. But I did, and woke up feeling okay. Grabbed some hot apple cider THEN hot chocolate (excess much?) and settled down to the laptop, hoping Z would pop up.

He did, and we talked about some severe things going on which NOBODY in here will ever know about (except, of course, lefthand_path). We started rationally talking about what we need to do at this juncture, and I feel a lot better. Yesterday afternoon crashed like a 30-year-old single engine plane with a 12-year-old pilot. It wasn't pretty, and I was in tears (which NEVER happens). Today, I resolved that /this/ would not happen to me again. I learned from it, and really that's all I /can/ do.

Then, whilst drinking my variety of beverages (because 7 different ones weren't quite enough; it's a good thing I'm allergic to alcohol) I talked with Z first. The, from out of the clear blue sky...

JACKIE!!!!


I'm sure I've written about her a lot over the years, since we were as thick as thieves in Germany and she had the love child (and married) my ex-boyfriend. LOL =) I lovingly called her bird woman (long story) and she was the first person (but not the last) to call my hair, my "crown of glory". Hahaha. I have SO many good memories of the things we did that I cannot begin to list them here.

She was the first girl I ever kissed (or was kissed by). :) Very cool. And she's only a state or two away! I'm so excited, I want to MapQuest her, and arrive by noon. LOL :D Jackie, Jackie...

  • Remember eating ribs and playing Tetrus for hours?

  • You were and still remain the only girl/woman I looked up to.

  • Spades from Friday night until Saturday noon?

  • Walking to our favorite Deutsch restaurante, where we were a member of their stamtisch?

  • Quagggggggg :)

  • Being in that nude sauna, and having our battalion commander walk in? OMGWTFBBQ??

  • Those damn $5 earrings you told that drunk guy were priceless from India? And you got away with it??LOLOLOL!

  • The first girl I'd ever met who wore glasses without a prescription (gaaaaaah remember when that was popular? Heh.)

  • Driving and taking a train to Maastricht, Holland just to get away and stay at the boat motel with Captain Kangaroo? Then trying to explain his new nickname to him?? LOL

  • Dancing ALL NIGHT LONG most every weekend in downtown Stuttgart, raising a ruckus, and kissing guys

  • Exchanging clothes, since we were the same size? (I still have one of your sweater combinations...hahaha)

  • OMG. Remind me to tell you the real truth about Captain Felix Santiago. You'll die.

  • Allard's Angels :D

  • The Freuling's Fest with our boyfriends?:D

  • That party, and the big, round pink bed in the colonel's room, that we made out with our boyfriends on? OMGGGGGGGG. He had a camera in there!!! LOL

  • Those HUGE ASS chicken legs from Schmidt's Chicken?! WHAT THE HELL did they feed those bastidges?!?

  • Getting that photo-ticket in the mail, with me driving my car, you and I both laughing in the front seat, and two other girls laughing in the back, while I ran that stop sign?

  • Brutally teasing virtually every man who dared to come into our paths? We were quite the pair, indeed

  • Taking turns kissing the hot, Swedish guy with the sexy long hair at the Swedish dance club?

  • Hanging out after hours in the newsroom ;-) :X

  • Our boyfriends, wanting us to get in a fight because we spent too much time together?

  • My whole apartment, TRASHED, when I broke up with Mike?

  • TWO WORDS: JOEY MCMINN

  • Painting each other's nails before going out on Saturday night? Or when we were just bored?

  • Being introduced to Calvin Klein's "then new" underwear! Woo!

  • That retard I threw a beer at? OMGGGGGG that was funny.

  • Minnie Prill? Where is she? Find her!!!

  • Snow skiing and our sessay snow suits?

  • Too many things to even continue listing here, but none of which I'll ever forget.


  • Yeah :) So Jackie wrote me and I'm beyond excited. Her son is now in the National Guard as an MP and was the bodyguard of some bigwig general. Kinda cool, and kinda like something she or I would do, since we were /always/ first ready on alert :D Mannnnnnnn, I miss those days.

    And then, aforementioned called just to make sure I was okay. Awwwwwwww. That was so sweet. It makes you feel good that someone is truly concerned in your life, and shows it like that. I only hope that one day, I can repay the favor.

    Yesterday might've sucked, but today's already wonderful. Even if bad things happened, they couldn't diminish the wonderful morning I've had already. =D


    Sgt. Maj. Bill? I hope you're reading this. She's in Kentucky! ROAD TRIP!

    Er. The end.

    She's still got it goin' on

    Yay!! I talked with Jackie a few minutes' ago, and it seems our lives have similarly run parallel to one another. She sounds like the same ole Jackie, and we both agree that now -- at our ages -- we look better, feel more confident and sexier than we ever were or did back in our European tour days. AMEN. I agree with that hypothesis, as I've seen pics. She and I both are some lucky mofos. I think keeping a youthful outlook is the trick. She had to let me go because she was going to teach a spinning class.

    You go, girl.

    Jackie's five years' older than I, but both of us could run a room down. Gotta love it. I mean, c'mon. Her kid's out of the house, grown and she's hot. I'll hand it to her. Her voice sounds the same as it did then. And realizing that we both live so close to one another, we're going to be getting together soon (perhaps halfway). Gaaaaaaaah, I miss those days! I'm now /happy/ that I leave metatags and my name in here for old friends to find. Because out of ALLLLLL the "I'm jealous of Terri" crap that I get in anon comments, NONE of those come close to matching the beauty of real life friends who've found me by searching =D There is no greater feeling, believe me, than to be remembered so many years later, by someone /you/ thought was special.

    She has her own business, and has taken over the world. I'd expect no less from her :) And so we chatted it up, about family, loss, kids, husbands, divorces...all of life's hard and soft balls. I'm beyond delighted! Now if Leslie and Minnie would pop up, my best friends would be complete :D The circle (or probably coven if we all got together...heh) would be complete, and life, perfect.

    Things are crazy today. Got resolution from Sony, but not what it should've been, and I'm not happy with it, either. I can't decide whether to sue, or just do nothing. Meh.

    Went shopping for special anniversary dinner :):) Can't talk about it or show it because there's a chance my o so significant other could read this :D It's very sexy, however, and I love, love, LOVE it :) I'm up to a size 4, so I'm kinda happy about that. I'd be happier in a 5/6, but I'll take a 4 over a 0 ANYday. Weight, I be a-gainin'.

    My throat hurts. Dunno where it's coming from, but MAN. IF THIS IS THAT CRAP I HAD TWO WEEKS IN A ROW...ugh. It's trying to kill me.

    Those journals we make (which are selling well!) are SO handy. I've been through THREE of them already, and just noticed this afternoon that I'd run out again. Gads. It's coming up on Christmas, and I'm hoping Kelsey pushes it so that she can generate more sales. She's WAY SHORT on monies needed to go on that trip next year, but she's working hard, as am I, to try and attain that goal. I'm going out to this huge cotton field perhaps this weekend, to take pictures. It's incredible if you've never seen one and I regret not taking a camera THAT day. It was really cloudy out, and coupled with the cotton, the sky and ground would've made an excellent journal cover. It'll look equally cool if the sun's out, but I liked the spooky feel it had to it when I passed by.

    Nothing more to impart here, since most of what I /really/ write stays hidden these days. C'est la vie, eh? Eh.

    Carry on.
