whatcha ona bout girl??
A retrospective on the inner workings of love, flying pancakes, mensa disasters, dandelion cookies, number bending, super salt, bubblegum oysters, chicken spit, crystal kidneys, guerilla carrots, polychromatic tofu, paraphysics, tender vigilanties, black sand, phillastine placebos, wood soup, buttered shuttlecocks, apostrophe training, fish whips, bleeding speed, plastic fantastic lobster telephones, venus drug rehab, clowns on fire, kiosks on a leash, marshmello overcoats, bottled light, fried blood, unbridled hyperthyroidism, folding wine, amygdula tickling, fainting in coils, hamburgers for the apocalypse, plastic memes, and conjugal fritters.....well...the love parts true

The titanic, a crapburger, and rose colored glasses


Smiling today dude……..seriously!!! …You KNOW I like to tell stories of overcoming bad relationships and lessons learned from dating women from venus…...dont hit me yet…..I know the reverse is true…..women have much more to lose from a bad marriage than men because they have spent years……. YEARS dude!!!!! dreaming about it while guys from mars spend their time preparing for marriage by ……throwing rocks…….which is fine if your in a rock throwing contest but it doesn’t do much in the way of helping a marriage stay on track. So I admit it.... guys are relationship challenged……myself included
Where was I???......oh yeah…..…smilin dude!! I AM a guy and yeah I do NOT like to repeat things….especially a mistake...sorry it’s a typical quality I think for a guy….and what is it they say about the definition of insanity??? Doing the same thing over and over expecting the result to be different……. Well…..I just lose it when I see people make the SAME BAD choice more than a few times….. dude ARE you listenin?? DUDE???? Knock knock….HELLO??? Now I cant take credit here.

Complicate this world you wrapped for me
Im acquainted with your suffering

I do have a questionable quality that I have to reality check…so feel free to hit me over the head with a blunt object if you think Im doin wrong……I truly appreciate bloggyfriend help!!! Thank you!!!
…....Im not sure how I feel about the realization that …….Im a dreamer….Capital D dude…..its a good/bad thing Im convinced…..I like to fashion myself as a realist…reality trumps all. Period. Kinda puts the brakes on dreamin….WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE YOU GOING WITH ALL THIS?????
Oh yeah ……..smilin dude……
A persons past is a decent window on the behavior of …..say……whether they can EVEN HAVE a relationship…….yeah dude rose colored glasses go IN the trash….Roses are cool....but the glasses have got to go....gotta remember that more often……..women I think will color their perception of a guy to keep a relationship from failing……I mean what girl says her dream man is a druggie? An alcoholic? ……….For the THIRD guy in a row?? Yeah dude….FAIL…...my bad boy reputation I can live with... but COME ON.
Hey I got it!!! Don’t worry …..you can CHANGE him!!!! That’s it!!!!..........FAIL X2. Rose colored glasses cant hide the smell of crap now can they? I mean …..if youre having difficulty telling the difference between…....say….... crapburger………..hamburger ……..and filet mignon, then ……..I'll probably be eatin at another restaurant.....
I talked to a girl the other day who had kicked her husband out after he confessed to cheating with another girl. She said she didn’t know if she could trust him…….like there was actually a debate about the issue…….she was so twisted up that even in the face of his confessed cheating she wasn’t SURE she could trust him…..Are …..you…..serious???? I told her I wasn’t SURE the titanic would sink…….Im just not SURE …....I mean………it might float….

And all your weight, it falls on me
It brings me down

Bring it…….…bring a good decision…………because No relationship is preferable to a bad relationship………No decision is BETTER than a BAD decision…..Dreamin is a good thing but its best to dream smart….. Oh yeah….Im smilin because I’ve had some rose colored glasses on lately……….but I see much better without them…..…FAIL?........not this time…...Im smilin….....gonna order me a big steak.....

At first you had me totally lost...but I kept reading. By the time I got to the end, I think it's safe to say that you can take credit. I'm not going to throw anything at you, cause if you finally have your rose colored glasses off- I say good for you! And if you're ordering a steak...go big or go home.

f1trey said...

@Heather--thats my russian beauty!!! smart too! you cant hide smart...or hungry ....I say we split a medium or medium rare monster with a baked potato and a salad .....after mexico.... hope you work that out soon!

"Seattle" Heather said...

Split? I'm not splitting a steak with you! I'll eat the whole thing by myself thank you very much. I'm a meat eater! mmm mmmm I'm not shy when it comes to a steak...or any good meal. LOL I'm not the date that orders a salad. :)

Yeah, many girls are like that....in denial. Also it's so hard to get out of a habit, even if it involves taking a rock and banging it on your head everyday. It's still comfort zone for the those who are afraid to risk.

Takes guts to get rid of rose-colored glasses.

I'll eat steak, but I don't like it too rare :P What about dessert?

Just telling it like it is said...

You see that is why I never want to marry...but I'm not the typical woman...I have been ask when are my ball going to drop...that's just because I can be a hardass at times, but most of the time I'm just sweet...
I say anything is possible...

f1trey said...

@ Heather- Ok OK!!!! getcho big ass steak and ima git da captains platter and a corona!!! thank god youre not gettin the salad!!!

@ MaLou- gettin the glasses off is a great feeling!! its nice when you realize you almost made a mistake but figured it out in time!!!!!

Dessert??? thats tough!!! OMG I have a cast iron stomach and rarely get dessert but I tell ya.. I love anything sweet!!! butter pecan ice cream, pumpkin pie, even a bananna split or ANYTHING chocolate!!!! ...mmmmmm

f1trey said...

@ Just- Ive been married (once) it was the ONLY bad relationship I ever had with a woman.... but it really conditioned me to be careful...I got out of it with my heart intact but i lost plenty of things that were important to me in the process......
Nobody likes to make mistakes but it was a great teacher for me and was even a PI for a while ..so I dig deep to see who im with...... if you cant put your cards on the table then you cant play with me.....

Miss Angie said...

Hey Trey! I left you an award on my blog! :)

f1trey said...

@ Miss Angie- Awww thank you so much..that really means alot to me! :) LOL Now I need a day or two to figure out what to do with it!! Have a fantastic weekend Awesome!

Relationships are so stupid sometimes. Love is not blind - love BLINDS you. I don't trust many people & probably never will. Always waiting for the other foot to fall & that is fine, that is my choice. I've been the "other" woman & men in general are just sneaky snakes. True, I was part of the sneaking too but I was 22 and he was 35, WTF did I know? Sorry, Trey but its true, rose colored glasses or not, men can't be trusted.

f1trey said...

@ Kimberly- No harm no foul baby! I do have something to say about the infidelity thing and the differences between men and women but im waitin to put it together....In the light .....the truth is you got a valid point as sorry as it is to agree with you ....but the older I get the more I seem to value relationships, im not perfect but I sure am givin it a try!

Just telling it like it is said...

I never put my cards on the table unless I am playing strip poker...and I usually lose so I end up with no close on...but I am not about feelings so I don't mind loosing...I know what it feels like to have a broken heart don't we all a betrayal of what we have given so much too...and yet I have no regrets...and my heart is always filled with love..probably because I let logistic guy fondle my breast weekly...hugs

Barbarella said...

I'm Leeds now btw, crikey been all over the UK recently!! Better shuddup and check out your post!

Rose colored glasses help you not to see that elephant in the room, ya know.
Nothin wrong with being a dreamer. I am convinced if we take our glasses off long enough to kick that elephant out, then we can have it all, with the imperfections, and imperfections are alright.
Why do we settle for less? The guy (or woman) either has it or they don't. Maybe what they have is for someone else, yea keep smilin, cuz someone else might have what you (in general) need.
I'm not opposed to throwing rocks.

f1trey said...

@ Just- LOL so weird .....Im all about the feelings! heheehe I cant help it!!!!
I like putting my cards on the table...by that i mean being transparent ....not that im easy to catch...just that I have a tool box thats versatile....
ps do you want to play some cards? LOL

@ Barbarella- Blimey love! where n ell ya been? Congrats to jenson button!!! Ill buy a pint!!

@ S- Cool... I think as an adult now we pick whats safe....as opposed to letting love happen..its s self preservation thing to be sure...but having rose glasses on really contorts whats goping on...i know my past can do that to my judgement sometimes...grab some rocks!!!!!

Barbarella said...

Twixt jobs but settled now. Good ole Jenson and good ole Lewis, we got 'em!

April said...

I don't know about all men being snakes......I've known just as many women who creep around as men.

We all make mistakes, obviously, and I've know many, many people who stay with someone when they shouldn't. (I was guilty of that) It doesn't make them bad people, and eventually they'll leave, but it takes time. You're smart for not messing with that one, because she more than likely won't leave until she reaches the last straw. And you don't need to wait around for that, now do you? HELLS NO!

Rose colored glasses can be nice at times. Because seeing the good in things is something that's not done too often in this cynical world. HOWEVER, if those glasses are blurring reality, then they gotta go!

f1trey said...

@ Barbarella- Movin huh? hope the work gets settled too!!! no man?? You should be able to find something in leeds!!! LOL

Theres talk of Jenson joining mclaren and then he and lewis would be partners!! Im all for it!!!

@ April- so true! One thing that REALLY chaps me is when I hear someone say they are still with someone even though they arent really IN the relationship...... just one of convenience... that stinks I did that twice in my life and hate to see others fall into that pit. ya know????

SKB said...

::hands cupped around her mouth, yelling from the bottom of the pit:: I like to assume the best and try not to take it to heart when others tell me to take the glasses off... and I've learned from each bad relationship, though have prolly taken too much time in the process... as for being in the bottom of the pit, it can be hard to let go, even when it's bad, because you know the other person isn't themselves and if they'd get help, they'd find their way back... or maybe it's just hard to accept the death of a dream. Where the hell are the rocks down here?!!

f1trey said...

@ SKB- The death of a dream .... i like it..... but I am still a realist...I would rather see the death of a dream..and sleep so i can dream again rather than pretend the dream is still alive....cool..... I like surviving..... :)
