It's wrong. It's just wrong.

While googling images for a primary project, I unfortunately came across this image. These are soaps. I have no further comment.

I'm perplexed

These recently made their way to my home. I love pretzels, but I did not buy them; my mother-in-law (feng shui Queen) gave them to me sometime around Christmas. I don't think she loved them, but being adventurous, I took them. Why not?

I ate them on the drive home from her house. Then I ate them when I got home. Then I tucked them away neatly in my makeshift pantry and forgot. A couple weeks later, Krystal came over and started eating them. I was a little worried that she would start ranting and raving about their weird flavor and ask a slew of questions, like usual, such as: "Why do you have these", etc. She didn't. A couple days later, she was back, eating them again. She told me she didn't know if she liked them or not, but she kept going back for more. After that statement was made, I realized that I, too, am perplexed. These pretzels are a mystery.

Last night I finished the bag o' bits. While eating, I wondered what exactly it was that I liked about the pretzels. They have a peculiar shape and not one of them is whole. That is pretty strange. Their flavor is so strong that I had to eat popcorn in between bites to keep me from salivating on my shirt. Not to mention the fact that every single time you stick a hand in the bag, fish out a piece or two, and partake, there is inevitably flavor powder all over your fingertips. This residue must be cleaned off, and your mouth is the only tool at that moment.

I don't know... the peeps at Snyder's must be pretty smart.

Wow, Why didn't I realize the "He's just not that into you" rules sooner!

First off, I am a bit embarrassed to admit that a movie made things click in my head more than years of experience and hurt and lessons has thus far for myself regarding relationships. Really? Really? I feel stupid for not seeing things this clearly sooner. I can't imagine what pain I could have saved myself if I had just realized a few of these rules. And now bare with me while I vent. (Thank you in advance).

Rule: "I'm not ready for a relationship, but I really like you."
-Yeah, if you like me then commit. I will no longer wait around for someone to realize how great I am, or what valuable attributes I have that I can contribute to their lives.

Rule: (I have) "Well It is better than nothing..."
-Umm No. "Nothing" is better than waiting around wishing that someone would be as in to me as I am into them. Do I not deserve the very best. Yes. And it might take some time, but that is what I have right now. Time. As long as I don't stay with "Mr. He will do for now" and move on with my life. My own "single" happy to be myself life.

Rule: The "Non-Titled" Relationships.
-If you like me enough, you will be willing to jump into a relationship with me.Of course after dating for a while...I don't expect this to happen on the first date, or first few weeks. Although when it has come to that point in the relationship do not dabble around the edges. Jump into the Water regardless if you are in your best suit. You are either in, or I am out! Peace.

Rule: (My own) If I am having that feeling of "something is not right, or different", then it is.
-Get out, and get out quick. I once refused to acknowledge these feelings for a few weeks, not knowing if it was me being "crazy" or if I was honestly feeling a change come about in the relationship. Come on! Intuition is what girls are born with. It is a unique talent that we have for a reason! Why did I ever ignore this. I am not sure. But once I finally caught on, I caught a cheater. And there is nothing worse than putting your heart into something, someone and find out they can't give you the same respect back.

Rule: If he is a slacker, and not a fighter: Then He doesn't deserve you.
-I am a hard worker, and expect the same. I have been actively pursuing my dreams my entire life. You better too! Why does it seem that more and more men (boys) these days are not as ambitious as the females in my life. Is it that hard to hold down a job? NO. Is it hard to put your mind into something and make it actually happen? Well Yes, but who cares! Do it. Shut up with the million of excuses you have, get off your ass and go to school. Get a job and take care of yourself. I want to be with someone who has goals and is constantly working towards them. And also. If you aren't going to fight for me to be in a relationship with you, then I don't want to be in one. That simple. If you really like me, fight for me. I wouldn't let someone walk away that I fell for. I shouldn't have to worry about that. My worries should be running out of Diet Coke, and getting to the gym.

I'm really disappointed. I thought Craig's List was safe from this kind of activity. This is the first ridiculousness that I have experienced using the fancy Craig's List. I'm just really disappointed.

i love honey

Now that we have the Queen Bee defined, let me just say, as a QB, that I like honey. No, I more than like it. I love it. Honey is so natural and delicious. And few things in this world are.

On to the rant of the day: the peeps in the movie we went to last night. Fellow QB and I sat down to enjoy a nice flick. The flick itself was good, cute, funny, all the things you wish for in a flick for chicks. However, as I was leaving, I said to my fellow QB, "I'll be honest, I would have enjoyed that a lot more had it not been for the other movie-goers". She agreed.

Why is it that every single time I sit behind/in front of obnoxiously annoying peeps? It doesn't matter what you do, they don't take a hint. (Unless you turn around and verbally abuse and sarcastically reprimand. Right Krystal?) I have a hard time understanding why the common crowd feels like it's actually acceptable to clap/offer their opinion outloud/snort while there are a hundred other money-paying citizens within ear shot who are just trying to decide what they feel about the movie.

Honeybees depend not only on physical contact with the colony, but also require its social companionship and support. Isolate a honeybee from her sisters and she will soon die.
-The Queen Bee Must Die:And other Affairs of Bees and Men.

Aint this the truth. I love my fellow Queen Bee sisters. Life is so much more joyful with great girl friends. I love and await my girl nights, telephone calls and getaways with my sisters. I admire each of them in their own way. Each one is so strong and has their own character and strengths that I learn from. If only the world I live in worked as quietly, organized and beautiful as the world of Honeybees.
