1 Corinthians 13:11 Translations

King James Version (KJV)

"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a [wo]man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." My birthday is coming up in 5 days. I will be 39 years old, and there is something about getting close to the midpoint of your life that makes you want to examine where you are and what you are doing. I feel as though I have lived as a child most of my life. This year has been beyond eventful. My mother almost bled to death in my arms, my fiance' of 15 years broke up with me but continues to live with me, and I stopped a behavior that I didn't recognize as an addiction, but now do. I am starting to see into my core, learning who I really am. I am not disappointed with what I have learned. I have learned to accept who I am. I have learned to become gentle with myself. I believe that I have finally started to learn to truly love myself. I have been a child, an innocent who didn't know any better and made the best decisions that she knew how to make. I have been so harsh towards that child--so judgemental. But now, I realize that there is always time to change, to grow, to become who I want to be. And that is no small thing. It seems that we so often get stuck in patterns, the realization that those patterns are changeable is a blessing--a hope.

this life

It seems that life always has some difficulty in store for you. My relationship is rocky beyond belief, and my benign to me word choices spin him into negative moods. all I want to do is communicate with him...but all I hear is that I am self motivated. I am at the point that I am not sure if he is right.

Mae West
One of my favorite actresses from black and white films.
Famous for one liner comments. I grew up watching her...where are the "popular film" witty people of today? Is it a bygone style to think that double entendres are sexy or witty.
Well, here is a list of Mae West quotes...

Goodness had nothing to do with it, dearie.
Response to an exclamation, "Goodness! What lovely diamonds!"

Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
She Done Him Wrong (1933)

I only like two kinds of men, domestic and imported.
I'm No Angel (1933)[1]

When I'm good, I'm very good. When I'm bad, I'm better.
I'm No Angel (1933)[1]

I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.
I'm No Angel (1933)[1]

Between two evils, I generally like to pick the one I never tried before.
Klondike Annie (1936) Sometimes quoted as: "When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before."[2]

A man in the house is worth two in the street.
Belle of the Nineties

It's not the men in your life that matters, it's the life in your men
I'm No Angel

When women go wrong, men go right after them.
She Done Him Wrong[3]

One and one is two; two and two is four; and "five will get you ten" if you work it right!
My Little Chickadee[4]

I feel like a million tonight. But one at a time.

To a young actor: How tall are you without your horse? Six foot, seven inches. Never mind the six feet. Let's talk about the seven inches!

A hard man is good to find.

An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away.

On handling men: Tell the pretty ones they're smart and tell the smart ones they're pretty.

Give a man a free hand and he'll run it all over you.[6]

He who hesitates is a damned fool.

It's hard to find a good man, but it's good to find a hard one.

His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork.

I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it.

I consider sex a misdemeanor; the more I miss, de meaner I get.

I do all my best work in bed.

I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

I wrote the story myself. It's about a girl who lost her reputation and never missed it.

I've been in more laps than a napkin.[6]

It is better to be looked over than being overlooked.

Love conquers all things except poverty and toothache.

Marriage is a fine institution, but I'm not ready for an institution.[6]

Reputation is everything.

Men are like Cigars, If you don't attend to them, they go out.

Right now I think censorship is necessary; the things they're doing and saying in films right
now just shouldn't be allowed. There's no dignity anymore, and I think that's very important.

Sex is an emotion in motion.

Sex is like bridge; if you don't have a good partner, you better have a good hand.[7]

Sex with love is the greatest thing in life. But sex without love— that's not so bad either.

She's the kind of girl who climbed the ladder of success wrong by wrong.[6]

Speak up for yourself, or you'll end up a rug.

The best way to hold a man is in your arms.

Too much of a good thing can be simply wonderful.

When you get the personality, you don't need the nudity.

You can say what you like about long dresses, but they cover a multitude of shins.

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

Crackle Nail Polish
Not so cool. I bought the purple crackle nail polish from Sally and it glopped. I don't recommend it. It dried super fast and just didn't paint well.
I found out that forever 21 has a plus size section. Awesome.

Summer I
I had an overly eventful summer. The initial premise was to take Summer I off and get some work done.
However, I first took a week to help Michael's mom in Coral Springs.
Then she went into the hospital, and we were going to go back down to take care of her, but then my mom went into the hospital. We ended up staying up here. (Found out she had a bit of a heart defect that could be controlled with medicine). Then my car broke down.
I got pretty much nothing done.
Now, we are in Summer II. Funny, ironic...
I told my mother that I am not going to try to take a vacation anymore that way she doesn't end up in the hospital again. :)

I just woke up. I had a dream tonight about my brother. I was looking through my old house and found a notebook in my bed. It was an old journal of mine talking about my birthday and how it usually ends up turning out wrong until someone comes through for me. The journal entry mentions my mother and brother. I believe I did write something like that when I was a young teenager. Anyway, taped under that note were two checks from my brother. One was 847$ I want to say and the other was 153$. I might have the numbers wrong. But that is what I saw, I think. This disturbed me. It has strange repercussions. It woke me after only 4 hours of sleep. I am so disquieted.
The repercussions suggest that his death was planned. How would he know that he would have to deliver a check to me ahead of time. Only if he knew that his wife would not. I know that it is just craziness on my part. My brother has been dead for two years. The ache is still there. I truly do feel as if a part of my spirit, my heart left with him.

Letting go or Getting over
I had another dream today about my brother. The dream was strange. There were two other men who were from my family in it. My cousin Fito and another cousin (I think), but I can't remember who he is all I remember is that he looked like a famous actor. I was trying to talk to them and then i didn't want to talk to them anymore. I decided that I would talk to my brother. I wanted to know what he thought about something so badly that i was overwhelmed with the need to speak to him. I saw him in my dream. I was about to speak to him and woke up overwhelmed with grief. Because I know that I can't speak to him. I began to cry as badly as when he first died.

On Facebook and Transformers
While facebook seems pretty cool and has many addictive games, I don't like it as much as livejounal. Probably because I am more of a verbal person than a quick quip and picture person.
I just saw Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. Pretty cool film. Great FX. I didn't like the way that the Transformers transform. I really didn't get to see the transformation in detail. M told me that the Transformers are based off of a toy that someone created that could actually transform (human hands needed...well hands needed :P not by itself) I thought that was pretty cool. But the transformations in the film seemed too quick/flashy. More bang than explosion, if you will. I don't think that the transformations were possible or believable...albeit cool to see.
Still an enjoyable flick.
