5 am? I did not even wake up then when I was working. I get up around 6:30 or 7 am every day.

@Suze............ my ex-husband played the bagpipes; I can't stand the sound of them now for a number of reasons! emoticon

Pat, there was someone in your old neighborhood who used to wake me on Sundays at 8:00 a.m. on the nose playing the bagpipes. Can we say profane things?
And gypsies rock for you!

IMMORTALDEBRA is a closet Goth and I am a closet "free spirited" gypsy mystic who loves magick, writing, poetry and being free to create and explore...
in real life I am chained to a desk job (9 to 5) working for an 80 year old attorney who needs to retire but refuses too.

I am both dark dweller and the incarnation of light.
I am free spirit :: earthbound.
I am wanderer and I am home.
I am broken whole.

And so a mystic sees—and doesn't see. Knows and doesn't know. Embodies the luminous dark which seems to be the hardest comprehension of all, for there are no words for this. And yet, there are all the words—the word made into flesh and flesh made into lovesongs, lovesongs broken into poems and poems scattered like seeds. And seeds turned into dead, fibrous husks and husks cracked open in darkness where light lurks in all the roots and roots hold the secrets of rebirth. And rebirth is a sacred wound which, if one leans into mercy, leads to a tender, glimmering, and resonant life.

I secretly keep lists for things in my life. Cleaning, crafts, household projects, work projects, lifestyle changes, holiday prep... I update them often. Its a bit obsessive, but I'm very productive with them. Without them I flounder and jump from item to item without finishing tasks. So I love lists!

I had a pet Praying Mantis for about 6 months.... I named her Zena.
At the beginning, I would go out on the backyard and catch crickets, moths, etc for her.
After that I had to start buying her crickets from the pet store when I couldn't find any in the yard. One time, my husband and I didn't notice that there was a gap in the back of the terrarium after putting about 30 crickets on there....in the middle of the night we were awakened by "chirp chirp chirping" and feeling something crawling on us. We had crickets all over the place ! It was hilarious !! We finally caught all of the ones in the bedroom and went back to bed. In the morning while making our first cup of coffee we found a few more in the kitchen and living room. Lol. Eventually we caught them all. :-)
It was shortly after that, I let her go out in one of our trees.
About a month later, My husband and I were sitting in the garage (smoking as usual) and he said, " Wow ! Look over to your left "...and there was Zena, walking over to me ! I crouched down, held out my hand to her and she crawled into my palm and looked up at me. My husband said she missed me and came back home. I played with her for awhile and then put her back in one of our trees by the garage door. I went out to visit her everyday for about 3 weeks and then one day when I went to look for her , she wasn't there. I never saw her again but I found her egg sack in the tree ( I read that they will lay there eggs before they die when it frosts outside). The following Spring, a very young Mantid flew into the garage and landed on my table. She/He visited with me for about half an hour and I put her in Zenas tree. I never saw him/her after that. It was a fun experience but I'll never have another one as a pet.

Well, looks like I have been missing quite a discussion here! Interesting ladies!

Debra, that is interesting. I have always liked teenage boys and related well to them. When I was helping to raise stepchildren with my last husband, I related better to his son than the daughter. I am still in touch with him and he is 42 with 4 kids now! The goth thing is not for me, however, but I love diversity!

Pat, riverdance, WOW! That is cool.

Keep 'em coming.

That's funny. It would be so cool to find a friend I could relate to and talk about music and Pop culture with. I wouldn't mind having a gay male friend. I think living here in Ohio you don't find many different sorts of people. I'm not a misanthrope at all. I like people. I like doing charity work and working with animals and nature. I guess God will put someone in my life one of these days. Meanwhile my husband is my very best friend. After 26 years we are happier than ever! emoticon

I am a closet Goth. I am a normal 54 year old woman. But inside I'm a dark spirit with beautiful black hair like Bettie Page. I love the imagery. I love heavy metal and alternative/progressive rock music...... but I look like someone's grandma. I relate better to teenage boys than to women of my own age. I am eccentric and artistic and a loner. People don't "get" me.

Eydie, I'm glad that it was a wrong diagnosis but sorry you had to go through that worry!

I got married at 18 and was married for 14 years until my husband was killed by a drunk driver. I married again at 40. My husband is ten years younger than me.

11 years ago I was diagnosed with a rare muscle cancer after having a cyst removed from my ankle. I had a few visits with an oncologist and radiation/chemo was discussed, even the possibility of more surgery and even amputation. After 3 weeks and extensive testing from the oncologist it was discovered that I did NOT have cancer, that it was a misdiagnosis. A totally freaky thing to happen, and life changing.

Geez, look what I've missed! I have a lot of catching up to do so I can know more about you beautifully interesting ladies!

My life's pretty much an open book . . . I don't know what you wouldn't know about me.
I'm 61, still consider myself a newlywed (5 years in May); love riding my motorcycle (Can Am Spyder, it's a reverse trike with 2 wheels in front), and I just started beading and watercolor classes about a month ago . . . and I'm on Day 2 of a 41 day challenge . . . . before my next Dr's appointment.

Now. . . .I gotta read more about you . . . .

Cathy

Pixie, I hope you did not get upset with us.

Thankfully I did not have such men in my life.

By the way, I used to have a job entering all the accident reports in the police department computer. Boring job! Guess who has the most wrecks? Young guys, just starting out (that is why their insurance is higher!) and old men who won't give it up! I had one old man (this was back in the 80s) who was born in 1892 and still driving. The computer would not let me enter 18__, so I had to enter 1900 and make a note of his real age.

Pixie, I took drivers ed with all guys and a teacher that believed women shouldn't/ couldn't drive. He taught well not really he endured my BF's older sister with same attitude. She miscarried and had to drive the fetus by herself in ND - she aced it. I drive all over country by myself. And guy in drivers ed car ran into me a few years ago and bought me drink as he said we made your life hell.

Well I WANTED to drive when I turned 15 but my parents wouldn't let me get my learners permit because I'm a girl. In my family, only the boys were allowed to drive and were given a car. (So not fair.) Then I got married at 18 and my husband wouldn't let me learn to drive either. He was the type that believed a woman should stay home and shut up. I HAD to learn to drive at 33, because I was widowed. I've been driving for almost 20 yrs now and have never had an accident, knock on wood.

By the way, no one would DARE expect me to stay home and shut up now, lol.

Yes, it does sound cool. I never wanted a tat, so never was tempted even when my friends were getting theirs.
I just kept thinking ... "What will that look like when I am 90?"

I had rather live in Northern CA than Georgia any day. I like Texas though and plan to stay.

Linda.... I am originally from CA.
Only ended up in GA because my husband was transferred out here. We moved out this way right after Thanksgiving in 2006. He retired from the Air Force a few years ago and is now approx. 6 yrs away from retiring from his civilian job on Base.
I have never liked living here. When he retires, we will move out of this state. We haven't decided where yet but we definitely won't be living here when the time comes.
If I could go back in time.... I never would've gotten a tat. Mine is a white Calla Lily w/green stem/leaves. It's pretty and I have nothing against tats, just wish I never got one.

I thought you lived in Georgia now, Pattie.

I have a story. I have lived in Texas most of my life. In the 70s I worked for the phone company in downtown Dallas. Most of the older women managers and all carried a small revolver in their purse. I was a college student and into "Love not War", so I thought that was awful. Now I am married to a cop and we have guns. I learned how to shoot a rifle and shotgun with ex husband, but I have never shot a pistol.

No tats, but OK with them if that is what you like.

When Buster the Biker dumped me, pre DH, his best friend took me for a ride and I have the pix to prove it. It was hilarious. I have always hung out with those guys but never on a bike, pickups and tats only! emoticon

I don't think I have anything super exciting to tell...I am a homebody, but enjoy helping others, so I do a couple of volunteer activities.

I like hiking, day trips, and have been hiking in some beautiful spot in the US.

I am pretty out there and open. Ok, so maybe two. I used to be a men's belt and accessory designer and used to travel all over. Part B because I was young, single, darkish, travelling all over Europe by myself and spending only a night or two in each place, I fit a terrorist profile in Italy. And another one of the reasons it triggered was my first week in Italy was terrible and when I went to leave, unhappy not smiling so they said my picture didn't match my teeth. Went through hell going in and out for years emoticon

I was certified as a fitness instructor several years ago and taught yoga, Pilates, and belly dancing classes for a while. There's a part of me that would like to do it again.
