Kindred Spirits

I've heard the term Kindred Spirits a number of times over the last week or so. I heard it again last night while watching Big Brother and I realized that I have never really known exactly what it means. I understood the general idea but not the exact definition. After hearing it last night, I decided to find out today.

Kindred Spirit - someone who feels and thinks the way you do.

It along the lines of what I thought but not quite exactly. I know that I have a perfect match as a kindred spirit. Of course there are a few others as well. But one exact match. Fun!

Hi. I've been MIA for awhile now. The truth is that I just don't have much to say. Life has been pretty crazy and, unfortunately, it has pretty much killed any creativity or fun in my head.

Everything going on makes me step back an evaluate my things in life. It also makes me take a look at priorities. I've been on a bumpy road for a long time now. I've made some pretty big changes and the road will even out eventually. I'm sure I'll be a happier person in the end.

Thank goodness for the support of my friends and family. I'm lucky to have friends who are there to whisk me away at just the right time. And friends who are able to help keep things normal and on an even keel. I'm doing quite well but I still need you and appreciate you.

Well Big Brother will be on soon and I'm going to go watch. Quite frankly, I've turned watching the dysfunction of others in to a sport.

Things I Dislike

Since I listed things I love, I've decided to list thing I don't love:

* cooked carrots - the smell even makes me feel vomitous
* drivers who turn into the outside lane on the bridge in the morning - enough said
* the snow - sorry I just can't bring myself to like it
* mint flavour - the 3 exeptions being the blistex and the flavour shot in my coffee
* sucker or lollipops - the make me gag
* butter - it's a consistency issue
* being cold at night
* Grey's Anatomy reruns

Those are the items on my mind right now.

My Loves

Here is a list of things I love right now:

* Laying on the couch and getting myself in there just as tightly as I can
* Mint is really a mild addiction
* Tim's coffee - large triple, triple with a mint flavour shot. Sugar in a coffee cup
* Red fuzzy socks...not new but still hanging on
* Sanding the walls - not really but maybe if I keep telling myself....
* Mid-afternoon runs to get fastfood
* Hoodies
* Reading
* JJ telling me that she wants to be with me all the time
* The very brief time during the day when all thoughts disappear from my head
* Multi grain has nothing to do with health. Chips are chips but these are just so crunchy!
* Butter chicken from the Superstore
* Re-runs of Paradise Island. I make no apologies for my poor taste in TV. None!

Hmm...short list.
