Thinking Aloud: Post-HALLOWEEN-Edition: “Ever Since My Trip To CHICAGO…

SEE !!!

I TOLD YA SO !!!

I’m SURE You’ve Noticed, But…

…I Really Just Can’t Help Myself.

The First Time I Saw It, I Liked It.

But, I Convinced Myself I Didn’t Like It So Much.

And Then I Watched-It A Second Time.

I Knew I Couldn’t Convince Myself To Dislike It Any Longer, So I Just Let The Greatness Of It Wash Over Me.

Then I Saw It A Third Time.

Then A Fourth.

I Just Can’t Help Myself.

To Me, It’s Like It Was After The First Time I Saw “KRULL” !!!

I Wanted To Watch It Again, And Again, AND AGAIN !!!

I Was The Same Way With A Few Other Choice-Flicks.

I Remember Doing It When “TOMBSTONE” Came Out.

I Remember Doing It When “LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL“…

(…AKA “THE PROFESSIONAL…)

…1ST Came Out.

I Remember Doing It When “ARMY OF DARKNESS” Came Out.

There Are Other Examples, But Needless To Say It Happens To Me At Times.

THE GREY

…Is…

…MY…

…Latest, Personal Craze.

To ME…

THE GREY

…Is Now…

…SPECIAL.

So Special, In-Fact, That I Can’t Stop Thinking About It.

It’s Directly Related To Having Received It AND Had My Second Viewing Of It While In The Second City Itself…

CHICAGO

!!!

The Film Makes Me Think…

…And Reflect…

…And Think Whilst I Reflect.

THE GREY

…Is Now…

…MY NEW FAVORITE REMINDER !!!

๐Ÿ˜€

A Reminder Of Being In The Company Of Those I Missed Most.

A Reminder That Some Things DO Deserve A Second Chance.

A Reminder To Think How I DO Think, Not How I SHOULD Think, Or FORCE MYSELF To Think.

And…

…Of Course…

…That I LOVE ME Some LIAM NEESON !!!

Period.

That Really Sums It All Up.

Does That Work For You ???

It Sure As Hell Works For Me !!!

๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Home Home Home Again!!!

Hola, My Peeps!

Hope You’re All Just Swell!

Just Swell, Indeed!

I’m In A Pretty Damned Good Mood, And I’m Always Willing To Take That When I Can Get It, Ya Know Ya Know?!

GREAT!

I KNEW YOU WOULD!

๐Ÿ˜€

So, Yes…

…My Weekend In Chicago Was GREAT…

…Though It Went By Much Much MUCH TOO FAST.

Period.

Seeing My Besties For The First Time In Forever Was A-MA-ZING!

I Had No Idea How Much I’d Really Missed Everyone Until I Was Actually With Them.

We Didn’t Go Anywhere.

We Didn’t Do Anything Fancy.

We Just Hung-Out With Each Other.

We Talked And Talked And Talked.

Hours And Hours Of Stories, Anecdotes, Jokes, Quotes, Quips, THE WORKS!

That’s What I Most Wanted Out Of This Weekend.

I Didn’t Care About Hitting The Town…

…Running Around…

…Doing A Massive Amount Of Whatever Whatever…

…I Just Wanted The Company.

And I Got It.

And It Was WONDERFUL!

I Don’t Think I’ve Laughed That Much In Who Knows How Long.

It Was Exactly As I’d Hoped It Would Be.

It Was Perfect.

Simple.

Comfortable.

Loving.

Caring.

Fantastically Perfect.

But The Weekend, As I Said, Simply Went By Way Way WAY TOO FAST!

It Almost Seems Like A Blur…

…Yet I Remember Every Second Of It With Perfect Clarity.

Now…

…I’m Home Home Home Again…

…I’m Tired As All Get-Out…

…And I’m Ready To Just Lay Down…

…Let The Weekend Wash Over Me…

…And Be Perfectly Content That I Had The Best Little Weekend I’ve Had In Forever.

I Love My Friends Very Much.

They Couldn’t Have Made This Weekend Any Better For Me.

It Was Exactly What I Wanted…

…Exactly What I Needed…

…Exactly What I Got.

Perfect.

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Time To Kick-It-Back, My Peeps.

I’ll Be Back Here With Y’all In The Morning.

Until Then… ๐Ÿ˜€

Greetings From Chicago, My Peeps!

Yes Yes Yes…

…I’m Very Aware That It’s After 5AM…

…But What’s Wrong With That?!

Besides The Fact I’m The Only Person Still Awake.

And Besides The Fact I Haven’t Slept In Over 24-Hours.

Okay, AND Besides The Fact That I’m So Wide Awake It Ain’t Even Funny.

I’m Having A Ball.

Lots Of Wonderful Conversations…

…Excellent Food…

…Spending A Little Time In The Company Of Those I Hold Most Dear.

It’s F-in GREAT!!!

I Know I Should Be Sleeping, But I’ve Such A Good Time That I’m Totally Amped-Up.

What To Do, What To Do?

???

Guess I Could Watch One Of The Xmas Gifts I Received Upon Arrival.

I Was Gifted TWO (2) Blu-ray Movies!!!

I Received A Copy Of…

THE GREY

…Starring…

LIAM NEESON

-Vs-

Those Damned Dastardly Evil Wolves!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

I Also Received The Crown Jewel Of Blu-ray Wants For Myself…

RIDLEY SCOTT‘s

PROMETHEUS

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

And I Can Even Give Y’all A Quicky Review For Them Both Using Only One Line Of Text, Each.

LIKED IT A LOT ๐Ÿ™‚

LOVED IT A BUNDLE ๐Ÿ˜€

Nice, Quick, Easy, Painless, Perfect.

(*teehehe*)

So…

…Yeah…

…I’ve Been Here For Like 12-Hours…

…And I’ve Already Had Enough Of A Great Time To Totally Justify The Trip!

I Still Know I Totally Will NEVER Want To Live In The Big City Again…

…But It’sย  TOTALLY Worth A Weekend Visit.

Smalltown Life Just Suits Me More So.

What’Ya’Gonna’Do, Ya Know?!

EXACTLY!

We Like What We Like…

…And We Knnow What We’re Capable Of.

Right?

RIGHT!!

๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, My Peeps…

…Y’all Enjoy Your Weekend!

I’ll Do My Best To Enjoy Myself, Also!

I’ll Holla More So When I Have Some Time To Work-Work On Ye Ole Bloggin’ing!

Until Then… ๐Ÿ˜‰

ONWARD To CHICAGO! HOOOOOOOOO!

The Time Has Come, My Peeps!

Time To Hit The Dusty-Trail…

…Or The Pot-Hole-Riddled-Highway…

…Or Whatever You Wanna Call It…

…And Make Haste To The Grand City That Is…

CHICAGO, IL.

!!! !!!

I’m Finally Getting To See My Best Friends After THREE (3) VERY LOOONG YEARS!

Hopefully I Won’t Be Away From Y’all Too Long.

I Plan To Continue Posting While On My Little Weekend-Excursion.

Wish Us Fair Winds And Following Seas, As That’s The Navy Way…

Friends… Bloggers… Countrypersons… Lend Me Your Reading-Glasses!

As Some Of You May Have Noticed…

…I’ve Been In A Sort Of “Creative-Funk” Of Late.

I’ve Had So Much On My Mind…

…So SO Much, In-Fact…

…That I Sincerely Feel My Blog Has Been Suffering For It.

I’ve Felt Kinda Lost.

I’ve Felt Kinda Overwhelmed.

I’ve Felt I Could/Should Be Doing More.

So SO Much More.

It’s October…

…Which Is Usually My Favorite Month Of The Year…

…And I’ve Spent The Bulk Of It Depressed As Shit.

I’m Not Sure What To Make Of It.

I Mean…

…Yeah, I Know I’ve Had Some Dental Issues That Have Curbed My Little Joy-Ride Several Times…

…And I’ve Been Dealing With A Horrid Bout Of Loneliness…

…But Neither Of Those Are Quality Excuses.

Right Now…

…At This Moment In Time…

…I’m Also Dealing With The Reality That My Cat…

MISSY

(aka MYSTIQUE)

…Is Nearing Death.

She’s Been Very Sick For A Couple Weeks…

…And There’s Really Nothing I, Nor Anyone Else, Can Do For Her.

She’s Stopped Eating, Now.

Her Systems Are Shutting-Down.

She Just Wants To Lay Down, Anymore.

She’s Lost Her Will To Live, Or So It Seems, But I Can’t Bring Myself To Have Her Simply “Put-Down” As The Vet Would Say.

I’ve Never Been As Attached To Any Pet As I Have Been Toward Her…

…So That I Do Know Has Added To This “Funk” I’m In.

Things Are Just Starting To Snowball.

My Hair Is Long, Now.

Longer Than It’s Ever Been.

I’m About Halfway Into Having A Full Beard Again.

As Grandma Would Say, I Look Like A “Ragamuffin” Or Something To That Effect.

I Can’t Go On My Mind-Clearing-Walks Because My Feet Have Dried-Out And Split-Open On The Bottoms In Multiple Places (F-in OUCH!).

My Mouth Hurts…

…And There Are More Dental Appointments On The Horizon.

Years And Years Of Puking-My-Guts-Up On A Daily Basis Has Simply DESTROYED My Teeth.

They’re Weak.

They’re Brittle.

They Break Like It’s Nobody’s Business.

They Make Me Horridly Self-Conscious.

Especially In This Day And Age Where Everyone Strives For That Perfect Smile…

…Ya Know…

…The One I Used To Have.

I Really Could Go On And On, But I’ll Digress From That Point.

PUT THIS…

…ALL OF THIS…

…TOGETHER…

…And It Works-Out To A Simple Answer:

October Is Now My LEAST Favorite Month.

Period.

At Least…

…This October Is.

Perhaps Next Year Will Be Better.

I Sincerely Doubt It Will Be Better…

…But That Doesn’t Mean I’m Not HOPING It’ll Be Better.

I Just Need To Find A Way To Snap-Out-Of-It Somehow.

Ya Know Ya Know, My Peeps?!?

I Just Haven’t Yet Figured-Out The SOMEHOW Part.

I Just Know I Have To Have My “A”-Game Grooving By This Time Next Week.

I’m Taking A Weekend Trip To Chicago, Next Weekend.

My BFF Lives There…

…And I Haven’t Seen Him For Nearly THREE (3) Years.

His Brother…

…My Other BFF…

…Is Picking Me Up Friday, And We’re Making The Drive.

I’m Super Stoked About That…

…Though I Admit The Bulk Of My Excitement Is Buried Deep Down Inside Me.

You Know Me…

…It’s Not Easy For Me To Outwardly Show My True Emotional States.

But I DO Promise Y’all I’m Looking Forward To The Trip With Anxious-Anticipation.

I Just Don’t Want To Show-Up On His Doorstep In A Severely Depressed State Of Heart And Mind.

ANYWAY…

…I Think I’m Going To Shut-Up, Now.

No One Likes Reading A Blog Where The Author Just Sits About And Rambles On About His Pathetic-Excuse For A Life.

So I’ll End My Ramble.

Just Please Please PLEASE, My Peeps, Take Good Care Of Yourselves…

…And Take Good Care Of Each-Other.

I’m Sure I’ll Be Back To Ramble With Y’all Again.

Hopefully Very Soon.

L8r L8r, Tater-Tots.
