Eye of the Potato

In Uncategorized on July 29, 2010 at 1:48 pm

7/21/10
My philosophical thinking has increased in the last couple weeks or so. I come up with quotes I feel I could have looked up, but to my own surprise I wrote them…I’m thinking it may be due to the last several months of living the way I needed to. I feel that my rollercoaster ride of relationships with humans has led up to this mixed feeling, at first misanthropic, trusting, then super social, but now I simply see that it’s a giant box of potatoes in which we are mingled. Those that you have around, randomly surrounding you, may affect the others by chance. I know that within this box of closely kept company, we all have the capability to grow eyes, root ourselves, think freshly or we can do quite the opposite and rot. Most of my life I’ve tried to keep the path of seeing all sides, taking the time to do what is needed from within myself. Know that I won’t judge your new potato eye growth, a health condition, your newly chosen path to enlightenment or on the way to a potato recipe for that matter…to include others in your plans of demise is a horrible path and I can’t be a part of it. I choose not to rot in the box, I choose to grow, live, love, respect, hope and goddamn it, I will continue to adapt and make changes for the better, at least I’m gonna try.

Real Men Wear Bugspray

In Uncategorized on July 3, 2010 at 8:33 pm

7/2
With all of the gatherings of friends and family, the 4th of July weekend is usually filled with bittersweet situations and plenty of imbibing. Please everyone be safe and don’t drive anything unless you are in a big field with no one around. This may or may not involve flood lights to seek out deer. I won’t tell, but the locals might speak about it for months and months down the road. To those whom are camping, don’t forget the bugspray. Even strong, big men can be irritated by such nuisances. And for the earth’s sake wouldya recycle your cans and glass, thanks bunches and I’ll return with a whole new blog next week. I just can’t wait to tell you about this new wine bar that I was recently taken to. See you out n about!

“New Car Smell”

In Uncategorized on June 25, 2010 at 4:34 am

6/24/10 LL’s LIST “New Car Smell”

You realize that new car smell, is all chemicals….don’t you? Lol. After saving funds, breaking into piggy banks and adjusting my budget…I, yes, I for the first time in my life have purchased a new car. My long time mechanic father would be disappointed in the newness factor, but I offered and bargained all week for this car and got a deal. They say a new car loses $2,000.00 to 6,000 right away when you drive off the lot, I saved over 2000 and got the add ons that I wanted along with having the dealer meet me half way on the sales tax.….I feel I have an extra few years of security with a newer car, I will drive it until it rusts or safety becomes an issue. I’m used to getting used vehicles or clunkers that I’d pray wouldn’t break down on the way to college classes and all ages shows, I remember those days. I’m all grown up I guess, feeling a little selfish. Knowing my insurance will go up and I’ll have payments is a move I usually wouldn’t make, I’m all about freedom of restricting ones self from the cage of money restraints. I don’t want a lot, I just want to manage it well. I made room in the budget, got approved for a super low percentage rate for the balance of the loan I needed. The most important thing I feel is that I did my homework. In this economy other dealers and competition offer specials, ask the dealer you’re interested in buying from to honor such offers and you’d be surprised. Hell, I was and it worked. I’m thinking even more horsepower is needed in the next purchase….hopefully I’ll have towing capabilities for my future boat, kayaks and a big ole dog. Hahaha! Hope to see you out n’ about!

Balanced by Blood

In Uncategorized on May 30, 2010 at 1:51 am

“Balanced by Blood” 5/27
Balance is an important thing in so many respects. Balancing responsibility, recreation and family among other many things is very important. Exercise and nutrition are also what keeps us going while stressed or trying to balance these things. No matter what you do for a living….writer, rock star or 9 to 5er, if number one isn’t taken care of, how are you supposed to be there for others? I recently went to a holistic focused medical doctor and nutritionist for some advice on weight loss and general lifestyle. Have you ever read anything about blood types? The history of blood types is fascinating, it’s based on ancestry and includes food recommendations and also things to shy away from. Researching the blood type diet has left me amazed….I have actually had a dislike to most of the NOT recommended items on my lists. Now keep in mind that it’s not a “diet” it’s just a balance of what your digestive system can tolerate and what benefits it most. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was age 15 and it’s ironic that my blood type states that we should be ones that vegetarianism benefits most due to the lack of acid to break down such complex proteins. You can find most of this information for free on line, without the need of a nutritionist, however you need to know what blood type you are, can’t just wing that. There are several books on eating by blood type. Some fad diet plans are slightly influenced by the idea also, but I’m typically wary of this type of fad style book. Take everything with a grain of salt, information isn’t always correct, but seeing perspectives keeps us open minded and ready to seek real truths. Send me your feedback if you have any experience with eating by blood type, I’m interested in your opinions and how it modified your life, if so. I hope to see you out and about! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! Sincerely, ~LL~

“Lacking libations and dude ranch get-a-ways”

In Uncategorized on May 21, 2010 at 12:43 am

My mind is clouded with this weekend’s adventure to Mohegan Sun for Reverend Horton Heat. It’s also excited with the knowledge I can partake in some spirits again after a 10 day haul of antibiotics….ah relief is two fold. Also the doc told me no exercise during this time. I realized after speaking with a knowledgeable friend, he stated that the same bacteria broken down by the antibiotics, break down muscle and tendon tissues so injuries are higher. I’m so ready for my exercise routine and beverages, ha ha ha. I have had an interesting perspective without drinking. I’m a very social person drinking or not. But when your health is good, you tend to socialize more, I feel. Though libations aren’t always needed, I still shall welcome them with open arms. I also welcome the summer and all the fun that is to be had soon. I was just talking with a friend that has a great weekend idea, they’re going to a dude ranch (and not too far away either). Heavy Rebel Weekender is a good idea too….do you have any other cool ideas for summer get aways? Hope to see you out n about, keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers!

“Stitches?”

In Uncategorized on May 14, 2010 at 11:42 am

“Stitches?”
A recent scare or actually fairly current scare of having to go in for possible surgery abrupted my world…life really isn’t that predictable, which I do appreciate spur of the moment activities, but not surgery, ha ha. My recent transformation from back injury girl to health-o-matic active girl has been put on temporary hold. I’m sure I’ll be fine but I guess all those crunches, workouts and raw foods have made my system mad, lol. No, really I’m not blaming the good things, it’s just that no one knows whats going on. It was thought to be appendicitis, which is routine surgery…no surgery needed thank goodness…..I’m so ready to work out again but I have a solid antibiotic session that will keep me away for just over a week. I am planning on significantly reducing my smoking habit which does happen when I drink. I had quit for 3 years why can’t I do it again? And if I have that once a year craving at a bad anniversary or something, I’ll be buying American Spirits….down with the chemicals. Any advice on how not to gain weight when quitting or how to make quitting easier, my ears are open to your ideas. Go have some fun at these events and according to my hopeful schedule I’ll be back out on the town by Wednesday of next week! I’ll be so ready for music, so send me your dates! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! xo ~LL~

Trade Music & Mingle Parte’

In Uncategorized on April 29, 2010 at 11:06 pm

4-29-10  LL’s LIST

As of late I have been receiving welcomed twinges of the creative flow…yes I was blocked for a while and an injury didn’t help before either…so even though I thoroughly enjoy going out, I’m so ready for some creative processes in the studio!  Even though I’ve been hanging out one on one with friends and in groups, I can’t wait to trade ideas and work on new things!  It’s an exciting time!  What I notice is when not in full on “go” mode, I still manage to incorporate creative twists in daily living.  Creative new recipes, making invites to meetup and socialize, or the way I multitask to accomplish more, heck even this blog, keeps me going!  So the latest thing I’ve been thinking about is a dinner party but with a twist…..bring 5 or so copies of music you’d like to share (albums)….and voila, a music & mingle trade party….sounds like a blast to me!  Yes, you can use this idea of course, but do please send an invite my way, that’d be way cool.   How do you incorporate creative differences in your daily life?  Don’t blame unhappiness on others…a west coast friend recently said to me, “wherever you go, there you are!”  Hope to see ya out n about, send me your dates toooo!  Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! Sincerely, ~LL~

4/22/10 “Punk Rawk Jam Drum Circle?”

In Uncategorized on April 23, 2010 at 12:01 am

4/22/10 “Punk Rawk Jam Drum Circle?”

It sounds cornball but I’ve lived my life pretty darn true to myself and to others. I don’t have many reasons to lie unless there’s a surprise party I’m not supposed to mention, ha ha. I wouldn’t expect any less from others, so sometimes things can be missed. Recent events of meeting new friends has me teetering in different directions….I think I’m beginning to really like people again, but don’t tell anyone….cuz I’m so not ready for another heart injury, thank you very much. I plan to stay independent of romance because I’m a monogamous girl and there’s not too much of that out there from what I see and hear, ugh. People need to express what they want, ask for what they don’t get…that’s how I roll….I don’t want to end up with the sacrifice that should have been the compromise. I’ve compromised too much already soooo I’m looking forward to creative crafty nights and cooking for musician friends jammin’ away in the living room or studio and syncing up ideas with others for the better. I want my energy in something else, something bigger like events, planning, creating, befriending and building something better. And there is soo much to do….for example I totally miss camping…oh god…I’m so going camping this summer….anyone know of some good spots where we can have an impromptu pot and pan punk rock jam circle? I hope to see you out n about soon, send me your dates! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! xo ~LL~

P.S. The Connecticut magazine, “The Breakdown” is seeking new writers and input….please contact them on Facebook. 😉
