  1. your list ROCKS!! but dude, i am a little wigged out. we posted on our respective blogs at exactly the same time this morning!?!?! spooky in a cool sorta way.

    i am also in desperate need of sex, so the more spiritually, emotionally and philosophically shallow truths are the ones that jumped out at me…like
    .if it smells bad don’t fuck it (or suck it). hahahaha…it’s been a relatively long time since i’ve been with a guy (6 months) so this is a good reminder…haha.

    i’ll leave comments on some of the deeper matters to everyone else.

  2. Wow very cool list you have there!

    I choose “.cat purrings are good for the soul” as my fav!

    My cat seems to know when I’m sad, and comes over to sit on my tummy and just purrs. It’s such a nice feeling. Sometime I wish I could just curl up on someone’s lap.

    Sometims my cat turns evil… but that’s what makes her so cool.

    Ahem! Back on track. I also like “.trust can be given but never taken”, but I was only able to wrap my head around this concept the first time I read it. Now that I’m thinking about it, it’s very puzzling.

    Which means… “.it’s time for bed”!!!

  3. amen to the sex….good god, it’s going to be ages before i get some of that. *sigh*

    awesome list. seriously, awesome! and congrats to getting to your pre accident weight :)

    i especially liked “summer rain is mother nature bathing us with love”….nothing makes me happier than when the sun is happy and out, and it’s raining. it’s so surreal. god! i love it!

  6. I vote for sloth. That way I can hang out with Spot and listen to her purring. Double bonus.

    PJ and I are living well. We’re also enjoying taking revenge on someone we both loath by doing so.

    C’mon down when you’re ready to give surfing a crack.

  8. jenn: thanks dude, i had a great time writing it. by the time i got done tweaking and editing it was more like 3:05 :)

    you know that one cracked my shit up when i wrote it and every time i looked at it after… and it’s STILL cracking me up.

    PB: thanks!

    i can’t pick a fave, i love the majority of them… but it was really fun to write.

    my cats are good for the soul all the time, but sometimes harriet is evil. as she grows out of kittenhood her evil streak is fading fast though. (mouse is such a lady she’s a good influence)

    i miss having a lap to curl up in.

    do you want me to explain what i mean about the trust one or do you actually get it in an inexplicable way?

    hee… i slept well, and yourself?

    elle: word. that whole nice girl problem sorta makes it seem endless.

    and thanks, i had such fun writing that yesterday. dude i’m STILL high from seeing that number on the scale. i can’t really believe it yet.

    summer rain is so good that i’ve sat in it and smiled and done nothing else for hours on end.

    i moved my sidebar because i was tired of waiting for buttons to load before my blog. you like?

    cast: word.

    word word word

    yes!

    nice. but i sort of got that one with the good/bad things happen every day.

    othercat: liar. you do more yoga/pilates classes in a week than i do!

    but sloth sure is nice to visit.

    and living well fully is the best revenge for you, you’re right :)

    matt: thanks and DEAL!!!

  9. One of my favorite things about reading your blog is you seem to to put a positive spin on things. Even when the car is threatening to misbehave, when things are not going just as you would like them to….you always seem to be looking the spot in the clouds where the sun will shine thru! Yes, Sassy one, the sun WILL shine thru right on top of you !

    I am so with you on the kitty purrs, the mascara, Survivor (don’t understand the whole keep the woman who is afraid of leave and get rid of the lumberjill), trust, attitude, indian food and the list never ending. Odds are I don’t comment enough ~chuckle~ but I am always reading ~hugs~ and enjoying being a cyber voyeur in your life.

  10. grainne: wow thank you. that’s an awesome compliment. one of my favourite things about my blog is the people it brings out. the commenters here really rock.

    it’s easier for me to see the sun behind the clouds because i got tossed into my own personal crucible a few years back and i came out the other side even happier. so i have a lot of trust for the universe now.

    (damm clutch! *grin*)

    i didn’t watch survivor yet but i rarely understand the voting process, i think we miss a lot of the real interpersonal stuff. the quiet not so dramatic parts.

    comment when you feel moved to and otherwise it’s lovely to know that ou’re there.

    hee i have cyber voyeurs!

  11. This was a most enjoyable posting. I am considering sending you thoughts on the real differences between men and women and the changes in society as I read about them(eg. The Third Wave by Alvin Toffler)when I’ve done some more reading, especially of your blogs. I have to learn what I can from and about you before venturing anything as, in a way, you have to bring me up to date. There’s a saying I can’t quite remember about people being what and where they grew up. I grew up in the fifties and sixties in a small company town in Northern Ontario. I have lived elsewhere but
    that was the base. Talk to you later. sassmom

  14. hi mom :)

    you should name yourself sassy mom and then not only would you be referencing me you’d be referencing your own brain as well *grin*

    i’m glad you enjoyed my post, i had a great time writing it. and of course if you have thoughts about the chasm of understanding between the sexes i would be hella interested in reading them. or hearing them as the case may be :)

    i grew up in that same town you know, it was just less company and more city in our corner of it. but you’re also formed by the people that surround you and i was blessed with thinkers :)

    terry: some of them do seem like pithy saying that might last i know. it sorta trips me out.

    jenn: hee. my mom rocks dude.

    i haven’t read that book but now i’ll clearly have to. (jenn i have an awesome family and i really do know it :)

  15. Oh, I love this list.. I’m printing it.

    In fact I believe this should be my mantra for the rest of the year.

    And yeah, how many times do we have to get the message across that if it’s smells expired.. it probably is…

    seriously HOT.. well the body part is.. *wink*

    Comment by sugarpunk — February 5, 2006 @ 3:15 pm | Reply

  18. while i love my SI joint for finally letting go and thus releasing years of back pain out of my body i’m sorta curious why anyone would think it’s hot?

    i mean i think the way the sacrum and the pelvis move together is hot but i’m a weird old pilates teacher :)

    it feels fucking cool sug i can’t even explain it.

  19. Did you ever see some film of Elvis Presley? They used to call him Elvis the Pelvis because he was so loose in that area that sometimes cameras were instructed to shoot him only from the waist up and that was considered a little too hot for public TV. He sure opened a door!!!!!

  21. OMG.. OMFG….SOOOOOO damn fucking right I cannot even begin to tell you how right you are…even though I just started :)

    Der…sometimes I think that people that have done me wrong in the past might think they got one over me…but really they are dumb if they think that. I am not dumb for trusting them…they are dumb for betraying that trust and losing me.

    You have some amazing stuff on that list. I was AMENing my way through it. It felt like a religious experience.

    I loooooove these types of post. I really do. I might steal it and post my truths. It is always very revealing.

    And OMG MOM!!!! This is so exciting that mom has posted. Yaay. All I have to say is that if the adage is true that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, then your mom must be another awesome lady to know.

    Woohoo!

  22. mom: i’ve seen some film of him but i don’t think i can ever really understand the impact that he had because he had already had it when i discovered him. that said? that man could MOVE!

    punk: my mom rocks, thanks for making her welcome (and if she’s here dad is too just so you know)

    the si joint specifically is the joint between the top of your sacrum and your ilium. the top of your sacrum is parallel to the top of your pelvis and is shaped like a triangle which is oriented point downward.

    that two points of the triange hook into your pelvis at it’s top and make the SI joint. the sacrum is actually 5 vertebra that are fused together and ends at your tailbone.

    okay way too much info.

    so yeah you’re about right, it’s basically those two dimples … and yeah… the low low back is hot as hell.

    nat: you have NO idea how much fun it was to write that post yesterday. i kept running back to it and adding another one. i know it’s a good post because *I* keep rereading it :)

    i love that it hit someone i respect as much as you this hard though, it makes it more true somehow.

    you know i’m sure there are a lot of people that think that they got the better of me but *I* like the eyes i meet in the mirror every day and i can’t swear that they do.

    it felt kind of religious to write it. and i’m really enjoying seeing what truths hit which people the hardest.

    steal please i would LOVE to read yours!

    yeah i’m so stoked that mom has commented, it’s going to be awesome to see what she has to say. now to get my dad who is quite witty in text (okay okay and in real life! :)

    and yeah, my mom is awesome and if you get that from knowing me i’m even more flattered.

  23. -I don’t smoke weed and I rarely drink (3 or 4 times a year)
    -I am a Transformer. Similar to a shapeshifter but I only have two options, geek mode (the one you see in my picture) and I can transform into a VW Beetle. The original kind, not the new copy-cat design.
    -I’ve never freed my sacrosiliac thingy, but I did crack my knuckles while writing this.
    -I’m a grown man and I wish I could cry when I feel pain. As it is I only cry during cheesy romance movies.
    -Are you in desperate need of sex, or of someone you trust and love enough to have sex with? I guess “both” is a valid answer, not that this was really intended as a question
    -You are right, vengeance IS never healthy. In all of those Schwarzenegger and Stallone flicks from the 80s, where they were out avenging MIAs or friends or whatever, our heroes always ended up getting cut and scratched and bruised horribly.

  24. I just found out that if you type my name (Micheal Wilson, spell it right) in Google and click the “I’m feeling lucky” button, you will get stuck looking at my blog.

    To be honest, they just said “I’m feeling lucky”. They didn’t specify if that was going to be good luck or bad luck.

  25. Awesome list! As I’m typing out this comment, I can see “vengeance is never healthy” in the window below and I really like that one. I also like “indian buffet is awesome” because … well because hell yeah it is. I haven’t had indian in yonks though.

    Yay sassymom. That’s so cute. I think about letting my mom in on my blog but I think I’m not ready for that just yet. We’re very close but there are some things that I talk about — or feel like talking about — while blogging that I kind of appreciate is seen only by people I don’t really know (and Nat but she doesn’t count because she knows everything about me anyway).

    PS congrats on the pre-accident weight. That’s got to be an amazing feeling, revel in it!

  26. mike: i have so many good habits that i need a bad one or two…

    nice an old style beetle? so whenever i want i can just get you to transform and then i have an excuse to punch someone?

    COOL!

    well my SI joint froze 4 years ago when i got my 7th whiplash, it’s nice that it works again.

    funny i only cry then and during long distance commercials AND when riki lake reunites long lost families

    the latter of course. sex would be nice but it’s the love and trust part that makes it close to impossible. so yeah… the second.

    lmao (laughing my ass off :P)

    wow you even show up on i’m feeling lucky? that sucks dude. explains a lot though

    well you determine the goodness or badness of your luck, the universe only provides it.

    JMai: thanks!

    i like that one too. in fact the more i read the list the more amazed i am that *I* wrote it *grin*

    and yeah, i had indian buffet last night and it rocked.

    i love that my mom reads my blog. frankly i don’t have the energy to remember who i did and who i didn’t keep a secret from so i prefer to just ‘let it all hang out’ so to speak.

    dude it’s FANTASTIC and i’m sorta stunned still. also the back ribs. very weird. forgot those were there.

    Comment by sassinak — February 5, 2006 @ 11:02 pm | Reply

  27. mmmm..back ribs…in a slightly sweet but still tart and yet spicy Cajun sauce.
    And Mashed Potatoes, the really yummy kind that comes from a box, not the yucky home-made kind…

    …At the risk of sounding pervish, can I eat you Sass? Sorry Sassmom, I’m not trying to ask your daughter a rude question, just be silly and maybe a little witty.

    I have nothing against people who smoke weed. Most of my friends do. But I really got my share of that and of drinking during my frat days. I just usually pass a joint to the next person without partaking.

    Just don’t punch me, I’m weak. Can you place the movie where this line comes from: “It’s not my fault being the biggest and the strongest, I don’t even exercise.” OK that’s me except for the biggest and strongest part.

    As far as the luck thing goes, I am not really serious about people being unlucky to find my blog. It’s just part of my warped sense of humour to make fun of myself. I don’t have any sort of complex, it’s just nicer than making someone else the butt of my jokes.

    OK I’m done training, and today is the first day of my new position at work. Lovely that I have a nasty cold and my nose and throat hurt. It would be a particularly bad day to call in sick though.

  28. okay this is the weirdest computer i’ve ever used to check my blog. i’m standing at the car dealer using their slide show pc to comment on my blog. see what happens if you leave IE open somewhere and a nerd walks by?

    i confess that i prefer the homemade mashed potatoes but that’s just because my aunt makes them with whipped cream.

    *giggling* why is that so much dirtier because you apologised to my mom?

    i’m like that with any kind of bad habit that only really affects the person involved. you want to drink every day have at it. you want to drive? that’s a whole ‘nother story. you were in a frat?

    i don’t punch people, why does everyone keep saying that i could kick everyone’s ass? so i work out, that doesn’t make me a fighter.

    i used to make fun of myself but then i realised that i couldn’t take it. so i stopped.

    have fun on your first day of your new job dude. hope it’s more fun than you expect!

  31. jenn: i thought i might have a leak (which i do) so while the tech was taking a peek i wandered into the showroom and found an open on the internet computer. it was awesome.

    but no, no new car for me, love the auld car, love it. don’t like the new accords at ALL.

    shy: funny thing i got my neighbour to read the list (for fun really) while i was writing it and he added that one (well i had to edit, he used about 20 extra words :)

    so i’ll tell him you liked it!

  32. I’m picturing customers at the dealership watching you write from a display screen someplace else in the store.

    I used to love home-made Mashed Potatoes til I started cooking for myself. I make them extra-awful, peels in, and lumpy. My homemade Mashed Potatoes could be on Jeopardy under the heading “things you find in the back of the fridge and can’t recognize”.

    I suppose if I didn’t live in the same city as you I wouldn’t have felt the need to apologize to your mom (sorry sassmom, don’t mean to sit here talking about you). I hope she’s got a good sense of humour or else…Oh God, you don’t have any big protective brothers reading this do you?
    Hey guys I’m weak, please don’t hurt me.

    I was a Sigma Pi. We were the Jock/rich boy frat. I’m not sure where I fit into all of that, but I still get monthly newsletters and e-mails written by kids in their early 20s (sorry Elle).

    I doubt you are a fighter-girl, but you have to understand it’s fun to joke about since that guy wrote a comment about you and your Martian Arts.

    Oh my nose is so raw today, it feels like it’s been prison gang-raped.

    i love being a nerd

    my mother lives in italy with my dad and my sister lives north of toronto … i do have some cousins…

    wow a frat boy. wow. that’s just mind boggling. i don’t think i’ve ever known any frat boys actually, you’ll have to let me quiz you sometime.

    well okay someone did make a cartoon character named pilates girl for me once. and i suspect that’s a martian art.

    i’m sad for your nose.

  36. outage over Yay

    I think it’s odd how everything that’s billed as “futuristic” leaves the impression that the world will be designed by IKEA someday.

    And all of the streets will be formed into a huge maze, so that you can’t drive home from work without passing every store in the city. Anyone who’s never shopped at IKEA will be wondering what I’m going on about.

    Ralph Malph is the new Fonzie. Nerdy is the new cool.

    You’re a Wop? Do you speak whatever language it is that Italian people speak? I used to know the name of that language, I’ll have to ask the next Italian I meet.

    Yup, I was the frat boy, with the sorority girlfriend. I lived in the frat house and used a secret handshake.

    Are your cousins in the Mafia? Now I’m even more scared. I probably already have a hit put out on me…I don’t wanna sleep with the fishes…

    OK enough of that silliness.

    yes i’m a wop
    and i make myself understood somewhat painfully

    wow. i wonder how many other fratlike people i know…

    my cousins are my cousins… whaddya wanna know? :)

  43. I ca’t smell eddything this mo’ning (sniff), so I guess I can fuck or suck eddything I want to right now (sniff).

    I’ve got an Ikea computer desk, a monstrously huge semi-wrap around thing. God it takes up a lot of space. And like everyone else on earth I have some other Ikea odds and ends, a filing cabinet, end tables…lamps.

    Were you born here Sass? Do you have an Italian accent? Do you switch sides during an argunent when your side is losing?

    I’m Irish, was a Bailey til my mom remarried. We don’t have a Mafia, just the IRA and they are pussies now, in fact they have their own political party, Sinn Fein.

    And we also have Lucky the Lucky Charms spokesperson. And James Joyce, and Oscar Wilde. And March 17.

    I’ve been trying to work “Fuggetaboudit” in here someplace but can’t seem to.

    Thanks to Matt, now I have to worry about both the East coast AND the west coast Mafia. Sassy you bring trouble.

  45. mike: this is a blatant ploy for sympathy isn’t it? well i feel bad for anyone who has a cold so i guess it’s working.

    my apartment is furnished in early bachelor. i figure when i get my own place that i own i’ll start getting real furniture. any decade now.

    i was born in northern ontario so no, i don’t have an accent. i do switch sides in arguments but it’s more that i argue people in cicles until they’re arguing my original point.

    well march 17th is a great day for drinking that’s for sure.

    fuggedaboudit that shit isn’t important :)

    dude they don’t call me sass for nothin’

    elle: you know you want to!

  46. Funny Sass, that your apartment is all bchelorry. I’ve struggled so hard to maintain the warmth of having a woman living with me that I have plants, pictures, a big old candlesticky thing for a bunch of candles (no Elle, I’m not Jewish), and my bathroom is so damn pretty. Now all I need is a woman to do my dishes. And other stuff to be talked about later.

  48. Did I say Pretty? I meant to say Manly.

    Ya, I have Harley Davidson pictures on the walls in there and pics of naked women.

    Very very manly.

    And I don’t put the seat down.

  49. *snerk*

    i recently started buying things in pink… i’m okay with pretty.

    personally i rather prefer it to manly… and i really hate sitting on porcelain in the dark in the middle of the night.

    that said? doilies are just not ON!

  50. Oh God! Um, my ex was into…crochet I think it was called?…I have doilies. My phone sits on a doily. Now I am self-conscious about it.

    Yes, I’ve read about you and your new affection for pink…stuff. Many years ago I had pink hair, in the same style as Robert Smith from the Cure, except it was pink. Later I had hair down to my bum.

    My ex trained me to put the seat down before flushing. Except I always forget when I’m at my folks’ place, and my mom still shouts at me for it. One night many years ago she fell in about 3 am because of me leaving it up.

    OKso long as we are discussing the toilet seat, I’ll tell you a story, again about my ex, sort of.

    One night I woke up and went to the little boys room. I left the light off, because I have a pretty good idea where the toilet is. I was only half awake, and so I started peeing, knowing that I’d just have to wave it around til I heard the splashing, then I’d know I’d hit the right spot. The rest would dry off the floor by morning, right?

    Except as much as I waved it around I never heard the splash sound. Being half asleep I assumed I was just too tired to hear it, so I continued.

    I was woken up early the next morning by my ex, who demanded to know why there was pee all over the top of the closed toilet lid.
