Dating 101

In Uncategorized on March 25, 2010 at 9:53 pm

3/25/10 Do you remember those super retro 30’s to 50’s booklets on drugs, sex and advice for teens? I’m going to write a modern one on dating. A few snippets here and there, some cool pictures, my 2 cents and others input thrown into a minimal size book, affordable to hand out to those in the dating scene. My open mindedness may offend and my traditional perspective may just as well offend…I love combining theories, always have. It keeps life interesting no matter what subject. I’ll add cartoons and jokes too. Advice would be light and fun or offensive depending on your take on things. Take texting for example, the new way to keep in touch. I do enjoy it for quick basic contact info, sometimes paragraphs are needed, I get it – but nothing but texts, no calls, no IM, no email….hmmmm. Not reach out and touch someone, but go touch your phone instead, it’s so separated, unconnected. (dislike button). Or for a lot of females out there, “How to hang with another enough without being obsessive and still have a ball of fun” ~ I have theories and perspectives on this too, just wait for the book, lol, that one may become a whole series. Please send me your perspective; I may use it in the booklet. I want jokes too, for real. You will be credited, you will receive a free printing, just email me or heck why don’t you just text me sometime, ha ha ha. Hope to see you out n about! xo ~LL~ Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers!

3/18/10

Lately, my mind has been on a getting a new phone. I hesitated for a while due to having other more important things to deal with, but now, I’m seriously ready. I have not upgraded the one I have for a very long time (embarrassingly 3 years now) -it does everything, it hasn’t broken with my numerous fumbles and yet something is holding me back from using my $50 credit. Recently Verizon has pissed me off, when for years, I have been promoting them for being awesome before an incident in January. I’ve been researching other carriers and phone possibilities….I love some of the applications on the iphone, like the one Shazaam where it listens to a song and will provide you will all of the album info – gawd that rocks, just hold it up in the air toward the speaker-woot! Looking for a phone is easy, one can go online, peruse reviews, look at options etc. My schedule however has locked me out of the actual retail experience…I mean hell I’m still working on creating new pasty designs, lol. I’m considering the Rogue…any input? Please let me know! Hope to see you out n about! Sincerely, ~LL~ Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers!

3/11/10 Bowl Yer Face Off

In Uncategorized on March 11, 2010 at 10:57 pm

3/11/10 Bowling makes me so excited. I think it may be a genetic disposition, as my car lovin’ Pops was an avid bowler as well. He was in many leagues since my childhood. I used to do the bowling scoring for fundraiser events when I was in middle school. When my back was injured, this was one of many things I missed. My bowling ball and shoes collected the daily dust of unuse. I recently found out that a friend is hosting a bowling party, I have to say that I almost fell off my seat when hearing this. I’m feeling quite positive about 2010, I think with the many changes so many cool things will come our way, besides bowling opportunities, ha ha ha. Straddledaddy is having an anniversary gathering at the end of the month, can’t wait to say hi to the boys. Also, the Social Pariah Festival, March 27th in Fishkill is looking really fun with all of the vendors and band line up they have. There seems to be a lot of upcoming out of state activities, so keep an eye open for them and do please send me your gig dates. Hope to see you out ‘n about! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! xo ~LL~

3/4/10 In order for me to get through the next weekend I may need to bust out my twin self in order to cover all of the activities happening. Do you think it’s possible to be in Torrington and New Haven in the same evening? I remember going to Hartford and Bridgeport in on evening often enough, that’s for sure! Have I mentioned how great it is to return to all of this fun? To leave house bound spine pain behind me? LL’s List was temporarily down while I healed, plus it was just plain difficult to see what was happening and not being able to attend. I’m getting nostalgic now, but if it wasn’t for creative people and creative themed nights, there wouldn’t be many options. Look out for some cool upcoming Hillbilly Happy Hours at Two Boots and Café 9 as well as the Brunchabilly that the Blue Pearl is hosting, beginning in April. The Connecticut Rollergirls vs Montreal this Friday in Woodbridge, CT – come have a PBR and support your local rollergirls! Hope to see you out n about! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! Sincerely, ~LL~
