My Best Friend

Today I found a friend,
Who knew everything I felt.
She knew my every weakness,
And the problems I’ve been dealt.
She understood my wonders,
And listened to my dreams.
She listened to how I felt about life and love,
And knew what it all means.

Not once did she interrupt me,
Or tell me I was wrong.
She understood what I was going through,
And promised she’d stay long

I reached out to this friend
To show her that i care
To pull her close and let her know
How much I need her there

I went to hold her hand
To pull her a bit nearer
And realized that this perfect friend I found
Was nothing but my mirror.

Allow it the joy and wonder of your touch, caress

Does it not deserve as much

Legs ache with longing to wrap around your waist

Thighs dream of you softly laying a hand upon them

Little nibbles on ears and neck

Crying out for your touch, supple breasts

Soft buds silently scream to be kissed

This body has dreamt of you for so long now

Let it obtain extacsy

Grant this wish

Now only your will is recognize

You who comes to my dreams

Who awakens me with pleasure

Pleasure forgotten as dreams fade

Everyone is perfect on the internet, aren’t they? Never a hair out of place, watching their P’s and Q`s, and they never, ever have any faults. Can you imagine if people were honest, if there was no such thing as hiding skeletons in the closet or telling half-truths? People’s pages would read something like this:

I’m short tempered, moody, and most of the time drink too much alcohol. I fart in bed, drool on my pillow at night, and have a liquid snore that makes the sound of a thousand drowning porpoises tame in comparison.

My armpits smell ripe, and because I eat raw garlic on a daily basis my family nicknamed me, “Dragon Breath”. Sometimes I pick my feet and eat the skin.

I can’t cook and I’m a terrible house cleaner. This won’t be a problem; after all, you should be good at domestic chores. Fetch me a beer and sandwich, will ya?

I’m currently between jobs and live with my elderly parents, but changing their diapers at night will be no trouble for you at all.

I’m looking for somebody who’ll give me a lot of sex. I don’t really care what you look like; at this point I’ll take anything with a pulse.

Oh, and I hope you won’t mind, but I’m on the computer far too much, so we won’t be able to spend a lot of time together. I’m not really into the whole “relationship” thing.

If this sounds good to you, drop me an email.

Sincerely, Mr. Truthful.

Watch ur thoughts They become ur words Watch ur words They become ur actions Watch ur actions They become ur habits Watch your habits They become ur destiny!

What is it with bugs anyway? I look outside and there aren’t any bugs for miles, but then the second I open my screen door to let the dog in, in zooms a fly. It never bloody fails, does it? It’s like they have some kind of built in radar.

And it’s not a little fly either, it’s a big, fat, chunky horse fly that dive-bombs my head and buzzes around my ears driving me completely mad.

So here I am running after the bastard all over my house with a fly swatter, and it never holds still long enough that I can splat it. I’m thinking, what is this, an Olympic fly? I’m waving the swatter around like a crazy woman in an attempt to give it a good thrashing, and then it plummets onto my head and gets stuck in my hair like a vampire bat.

I let out a blood curdling scream when it makes that gawd awful buzzing sound and tries to bite me. In desperation to kill it I whack myself on the head with the swatter.

The only problem is, I miss it and it flies out the door again.

There’s nothing like walloping yourself in the head.

UPDATE: Well folks, here’s the recipe you’ve all been waiting for from my Love Guru neighbor. This one is called  Dreambars, better known as ~ “The Man Keeper”. Hehehe. The recipe is delicious. The ingredients, however, are un-deniably expensive.

 Dreambars

Ingredients:

2 (3-ounce bars) of bittersweet or semisweet chocolate.
2 (3-ounce bars) of milk chocolate.
2 (3-ounce bars) of white chocolate.
12 tbsp of unsalted butter.
2 cups of cinnamon graham cracker crumbs (16 double cookies).
1 1/3 cups of shredded coconut.
3 full cups of pecan halves.
1 2/3 liquid cups of sweetened condensed milk.

Equipment: 10-inch by 15-inch by 1-inch jelly roll pan, bottom and sides lined with heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Directions:

Place 1 oven rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Break chocolate into individual squares and cut each in half, or chop the chocolate into 1/2-inch pieces. Mix the chocolate pieces together and set aside.

Melt the butter in the jelly roll and in the preheating oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Spread the butter evenly over the bottom and sides of the pan by tilting the pan or using a pastry brush. Sprinkle the cracker crumbs over the butter, mixing with a rubber spatula to moisten them. With your fingers, press the crumbs firmly and evenly onto the bottom and about 3/4 inch up the sides of the pan. Strew the coconut evenly over the crumbs.

Reserve 1 scant cup (about 3.5 ounces/100 grams) of pecan halves. Chop the remaining pecans medium-coarsely and scatter them evenly over the coconut. Scatter the chocolate pieces in an even layer over the pecans. Slowly and evenly pour the condensed milk over top. Arrange the reserved pecan halves, smooth side up, in 5 long rows, starting 1 inch from each long edge and spacing them 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and, using an angled spatula, press down the nuts so they adhere to the chocolate. Return the pan to the oven and continue baking for 20 to 30 minutes or just until the milk bubbling up between the nuts in the center of the pan is pale golden.

Do not over bake or the nuts and crust will be bitter.

Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Invert onto a large cookie sheet and peel off the aluminum foil. Re-invert onto a cutting surface and cut the cookie lengthwise into 5 strips (each about 2 inches wide), cutting in between the rows of pecans, and then crosswise into 10 strips (about 1 1/2 inches wide).

Store: In an airtight container at room temperature or in the freezer.
