tick tock. ding dong.

( warning - this is FULL of typo's)

so for no apparent reason i was thinking about watches last night. prolly because we had big time storms here and lost power for a while a couple of times last night and i had to go around the house setting clocks.

then i thought - it's a damn cool thing we don't have to reset watches like that - cause i have an ass load of watches .... seriously. an ass load, it's be measured and catagorized - you don't ask. i won't tell... and i have all kinds of watches - fron antique diamond and platinum, to your basic fossil watch, to a $1.99 n*sync watch ( and yes i still wear it so shut up .... lance, especially pre nose job is dumb as a box of hair - but cute )

I was thinking that you can tell a lot about a person by their watch ... moreso with men than women i think - generally cause women accessorize more than men, can wear men's watches without and issues and all that.....

* i know a guy who wears a GINORMOUS digital nightmare ( remember that scene in "singles" where the guy wanted to load up his watch with numbers? ... it's sorta like that) it's a watch/palm pilot/weater predictor/game boy/ woman repulsor .... at least we know with this model he's got limber fingers - at least on that one hand.

*i like to see if someone's watch matches their personality ... like my rock star friend - has a kick ass rock star watch - on me it would look a hot mess ... on her - it looks like she was born with it attached to her left wrist.

*i also think it's fun to wear your swankiest outfit - then wear a silly ass watch - like today - i have a suit on for work - i look all grown up and professional .... and i'm sporting a burger king Spongebob Squarepants watch ... and it makes me giggle.

* i tend to like extremes of watches on men - like a really amazing beautiful classic watch ( not some bling 'new money' crap ) but something classic or the silly spongebob variety ... i think for me it's the same as a classic or preppy man who has a tatoo that no one would know about unless he's nekkid ...... ( i need a moment - i love that image )

i think i have this watch issue cause my dad is a watch man - he's got a gabillion - and it's always a welcome gift at any given holiday ....



****************************************
new topic -

several of my blog buddies have recently encountered hate mail or hate comments - to the point where they have either changed blogs, taken them down completly, or made then private.... i used to have a disclaimer on this blog - and may have to put it back up ... but lemme make this clear ....

this is my blog - just as yours is yours. if i have an opinion you don't agree with - great - i have no problem with it .... that's corrected in the simplest of ways .... QUIT FUCKIN' READING.....or create your own blog and present your opinion. it is NOT appropriate to be hate filled or bash others ... believe me - there are people on this planet - and not just political leaders that i HATE - and i mean HATE .... if they were shot off into space never to be seen again - i would have NO problem with - and would do a happy dance for eternity .....

so you know what - i don't read their blog often - and i totally do not post on it - cause it's hers to be an idiot on .....

so if you hate what someone has to say - keep it to yourself - it's their site to do with what they want - and agree or not ... everyone is entitled to think what they think.

yeah, that harrassment thing was getting old, needs to stop. I've been lucky except I was attacked on one site myself, then they stopped altogether

I don't own even one watch. Clocks are everywhere, i was always banging them up. Haven't for about 10 years, don't miss them at all.

i currently own 1, count it, 1 watch that i actually wear. it is an *nsync watch, it doesn't work, and allie gave it to me. it's a tie between all 3 of those traits as to why i love it so much. did i mention that i'd much rather not know what time it is?

and i have always wondered why there is hardly ever a clock in a movie theater lobby. it has always pissed me off.

Glad you survived the storm, sister. For some reason, I refuse to wear a watch -- haven't worn one for about 5 years. The very analytical, straight-laced fellow training me at work has a Mickey Mouse watch. It always makes me smile.

But not as much as you do.

I have been watchless for a bit now as I can't afford to get a new one.
I always wanted one like my aunt had, it was her 'dress watch' and my Uncle gave it to her when they married and every year on their anniversary a small diamond was added to the band. They were married for over 40 years, I'm sure it's worth a small fortune now. but it was soooo sweet, every year about a month before their anniversary, he would take it and have the 'new' diamond put in. It was small and beautiful, not huge and ostentatious. I always wanted that.....
some day

I'm a wristwatch lover, but you knew that. I just have the one, and I'm still waiting on you to buy me the platinum Tiffany Mark. Waiting.

I LOVE what you said about watches and accessorizing! I wish I could wear watches again... but I can barely stand any jewelry on me anymore (okay, hoop earrings every now and then) -- hell, I can't stand BRAS anymore and god knows I need them more than I need to know how late I am all the time.

I used to love watches on anywhere but my wrist... on necklaces, on pins, in a pocket... but then I got totally "woo-woo" and L.A. on myself -- at a feng shui class I took the guy said it wasn't good to have an electrical/magnetic current directly on your body like that... and I've finally found the excuse to never wear a watch again. Or a cell phone. But I'll still microwave my food -- what's up with that? I guess as long as I don't have to wear it...

I'm going now... just ate too much Rocky Road ice cream.
