Things have been quite hectic back at the ole ranch. I have people staying with me now, and EJ is out of town. It's up to me to establish rules and regulations. I hate it. I hate drama of any kind. I only watch scary or funny movies, or historical dramas. Or Law and Order, as I have to keep tabs on my boyfriend, Vincent.
With all these people, there is a lot of tattling going on. "He said," or "She said," but frankly, my dears, I don't give a rat's ass!! And I don't. People will talk, you know. And personalities will clash. I always have my room to retreat to, with my cats, of course.
I was very sad to hear of the death of Heath Ledger. A wonderful young actor, my favorite film of his would probably be The Four Feathers. If you have not watched it, I highly recommend it. It would be classified as a historical drama or adventure.
Why must they die so young? And what in the world did Mary Kate have to do with anything? Surely he wasn't dating her? Isn't she the one who looks rather ghoulish? I don't know, can't keep up with the twins as I hated the show that spawned them. HA!
I gain new respect for my special friend Dave every day. He is not only a nice person, but highly perceptive about other people. He has opened my eyes to alternate ways of looking at things. We have, of course, agreed that we will always be special friends of sorts, but that we are not seeking a long term commitment. (Satan, get thee behind me!!) Wait, I must cross myself, and say a few prayers of protection as I put the word commitment to paper.
Yes, I am afraid of commitment at this time in my mid-life. I'm already committed to Vincent, and I should be committed for other reasons. Plus I must constantly fend off attentions from my neighbor, Roger, who is well known for his European persona, i.e., Roman hands and Russian fingers.....(an old phrase, but still useful).
I like living alone. I get the bed all to myself. My cats can sleep anywhere they choose, and I have full control of the remote. My room can be messy and unorganized, or everything in its place, depending on my energy and skill level at any given time. I can stay on the computer for hours, with no one saying, "I don't know why you spend all that time on that damned thing...". And, most important, my comings and goings are my business and no one else's. I love it.
Now, I'll probably fall madly in love with Roger and move in with him. (Get thee behind me Satan, and quit pushing, dammit!)
