|02:06 pm - Weird late-night musings|
Oh, the strange things you think of when touching up paint in the wee hours of the morning. . .
The thought that consumed me last night was thus:
"I should make a button for Pagan festivals. It should say: 'I'm taken'.
No, it should really say:
'I enjoy fine conversation and good flirting. I like to have fun and to talk about all sorts of stuff. Just remember: if I'm flirting, I don't mean it; if I'm drinking you can't get me drunk enough; if I'm staring at you, I probably think you're hot, but I'm not going to do anything about it and you can't make me. I have a girlfriend whom I love very much. Yes, that also means I'm straight. In short: if you're looking to get laid, you're wasting your time.'
But that would be too small to read. So it should probably say:
'I'm taken, I flirt, I mean nothing by it. Find someone else to get you off.'
If nothing else, it'd make a great conversation starter!"
I don't know why I thought about this last night. Maybe it was the paint fumes?
Oh, and I think I'll have a twister mat ready for use at Wellspring. . . a large one. . . One that Groves could challenge other Groves on. I already have the canvas.
I slept through the ball dropping in NYC on NYE. I make it a point to sleep through it every year, actually. I find the idea somewhat revolting for some reason.
Brian is coming over tonight to watch the Fiesta Bowl. Yes, I purchased enough beer for him to get properly drunk, win or lose. Yes, I sold out and purchased Tostitos chips and salsa. No, I don't care.
Anyone who wishes (preferably who knows Brian, Tina, and me) is welcome to join us for the game. I'm grilling steaks, but I think I only have two, so that means you'll be eating cheeseburgers or hotdogs (I believe I have some buns).
Oh, and how could I forget?
I finished painting my room! The only thing left is to do some minor touchups, but that's it. I like it.
Though I might end up having to re-hang drywall in there. We'll see.
My altar is now in the process of going up. I'll post pictures when it's all done.
Probably either in March or late February I'll be putting up the wainscoting. I can't afford it right now, but I will be able to in about a month or two. Maybe the tax refund check will take care of that.

I don't know if it's because the Wiccan community here in Denver when I was active nearly 15 yrs ago was made up of old hippies or what, but a few that hit on me were just... icky. I just usually felt very self-conscious because I'm built more like the venus of Willendorf than the Venus De Milo, and the only ones that ever got any "nice" attention were the slender and impressionable newbies that resembled Buffy and her friends. I found it very hypocritical from a community that supposedly worshipped all women as images of the Goddess as beautiful. Reminded me too mich of school. It's a hard thing to mentally get over, but I don't tend to trust a man who's hitting on me.
lemme edit that last comment. I'll flirt a lot, but I have to get past the mental programming of the little voice that says "he must be desperate" if I think he's serious.
Well, *all* guys are desperate. :)
Doesn't mean that you're their last choice. Heck, I was desperate while flirting with my now-girlfriend. And she certainly wasn't my last choice. More like that university that you apply to on the off chance that they'll accidentally put you in the "accepted" pile.
And you know what? I think that's exactly what happened :)
Yeah, most Pagans are icky. It's actually a technical term when applied to Pagans, I think.
Where are you going that you see Buffy look-alikes? I'd like to avoid such places.
Real women have curves. Lots of them. Like an old 68-73 Stingray.
Of course, I'll never turn down the chance to flirt with a slender and impressionable newbie. But then again, I've never turned down the chance to flirt with anyone, I don't think, unless they made me uncomfortable. Including gay men.
ROFL well, you are definitely invited to Denver, then. ;) At least we'll both be aware we're not serious. And I really haven't been around the Wiccan community in years, I got tired of the "my degree is better but secret" crap. I tend to hang out with some local asatru friends, very good people. Plus the working on getting a grove together is slow but steady. I've got 15 people in the online group now, and we're having a camping trip this summer solstice!
Cool! I think a PG should definitely be in Denver. One is needed there.
As for the "Wicca Secret Degree of Grand Poohbah", I know a few of them. In general, I just let them drown in their own misinformation.
ROFL yeah, that's the original reason I left my coven so many years ago. Hmmm, the one who does all the research gets accused of "not knowing that much about the Celts". This from a High priestess that believed the Celts were all peaceful matriarchal farmers. Eejit.
I always liked John Michael Greer's statement that there are too many people who believe that the peaceful Celts were murderously attacked by the Pale Patriarchal Penis People, and up until then had been happy, peaceful people who never had wars or death. . . Stupid revisionist history. . .
