“To be good is to be forgotten. I’m going to be so bad I’ll always be remembered.”
These are the infamous words of Theda Bara, a silent film vixen.
I’m not sure about you, but when I take the time to put effort into something. I’m going to be good at it. I’m not half-assing it because I want to waste my time. It’s probably a consequence of today’s day and age…we need everything now now NOW! But it’s also smart. Why waste my time doing something if there isn’t going to be some sort of benefit or reward?
Take this relationship I’m currently treading water in. We have gone on less than 10,but more than 3, dates. We’ve always have a good time. I’ll be the first to admit in hindsight that maybe we had the ‘where are we’ conversation too soon. Regardless, I want this thing to move forward. I don’t want to take my time testing the waters. I know I like the guy, I know we have good chemistry, I know we make each other laugh. But in his words…we don’t need to label what we are just yet.
Parts of me agree. Not too long ago, I got out of a pretty serious relationship. Serious in the sense we were starting to talk comfortably about marriage. Then, on the flip of a dime, he decided he was done with me. In a matter of 2 days. Guys are weird. Whatever. I’m over it.
Other parts of me are screaming at New Guy. Why do we need to do it this way? I even venture the questions…Am I wasting my time? I want results now, or I’m probably going to lose interest. It’s terrible, really. He’s a great guy. I’d hate to lose him over my fast-paced, move-along, antsy attitude. My New Year’s resolution should have been ‘to relax in every area of life.’ Jedi meditation should come in handy in that respect.
Regardless this relationship moves forward into something more serious, or if we simply happen to be fooling around and eventually move on to greener pastures, I’m not going to be bad at whatever it is we’re doing. I’m typing this to you from his apartment right now. He’s gone off to work, and I’m lounging on his bed, finishing up this entry that should have been posted yesterday, and thinking about jumping in the shower. I’m completely energized from our morning romp in the sheets, followed by some cuddling. (Sorry, I’m a cuddler!)
Wherever life takes us in the upcoming months, I’m not going to ‘some girl’ he once dated. I’m going to be remembered. Believe me, waiting for him to get home in nothing but a silk robe definitely leaves an impression 🙂
On top of this budding new relationship, I have the excitement of being named my sister’s Maid of Honor for her wedding this upcoming November! AHHHHHH! So pumped. I have no clue what I’m doing, but I have no doubt I will rise to the occassion and leave my mark as well. I don’t care if I’m standing for hours giving my opinion on hundreds of white gowns. I’m enjoying this position of wedding power. It might be my only chance to hold it.
Is it a bad idea to leave a dash of my perfume on New Guy’s pillow when I leave today? We leave 2 hours apart…it might be a nice reminder to him when he gets home from a long day’s work. It’s worth a shot.
Don’t be afraid to be bad…as long as your intentions are completely honorable. Prime example? Meryl Streep in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’. Pure bad ass. Take notes off her…I wouldn’t follow the character’s moral code exactly, but the main points are there.
Ha. That’s all.
Movies. Music. Movie Scores/Soundtracks. Hilarious TV Shows. Witty Writing. Photography. Weddings.
All topics that will be breached here, along with the list given in previous posts. This is a place where I can talk about anything. And I mean *anything*.
Today’s wild lady: Academy Award winner Marie Dressier
“It must have been great fun to make love to me.”
Not sure what she did in the movie that won her the highest of acting awards on this side of the moon, but a part of me wants to say this to past lovers of my own. I know what I bring to the table. I know the enthusiasm I have, and 98% of the time, I’ll agree that it’s paid back in full. What I don’t have in technique, I make up for it with my try-anything-once attitude.
Trust me. It comes in handy.
Sex is pretty basic. It is fair to say that partners will have different experiences, therefore is could be deemed that they have more “experience” than you. (I’m not even sure I believe that.) It’s all about comfort zone. What I do know is, what I do…I do it well.
Back in 1930, I’m sure this dame was a bombshell. Not a bombshell in the sense of Rita Hayworth or Marilyn Monroe, but a bombshell nonetheless. She had to be good to win an Academy Award.
Now, when I say this, I’m not meaning it in the sense that I believe there isn’t true talent today. Yes…yes there is.
Meryl Streep is hands-down one of the best actresses of our times. Kate Winslet, a bombshell AND capable of knocking me out of the park each and every time she takes on a role.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is not a seasoned actor…but he has the chops to be a serious actor and keeps proving it with each new film. Johnny Depp is the definition of a chameleon actor. I could go on and on….film is something I live for.
I have lots of favorite performers, but these guys are definetely in my Top 10.
Regardless of talent, there are schmuks everywhere. I’ve slept with a few of them. I don’t regret any of them. I had my reasons for why they happened and when they happened.
I’m a firm believer in looking forward and not regretting anything. Though the Jedi frown upon having romantic relationships of any kind, they do believe in letting go of the past. Including past happenings you may shake your head at 3 years later.
Ladies, we’re worth it. It’s his stupid fault for letting us go. Bring it to the table each and every time. There’s no doubt in my mind my past gentlemen callers see me now, and remember the times we had.
Cue the lust stare for the next 5 minutes upon seeing me.
I remember those times, too.
I just don’t let them know it.
Along with taking on the responsibilities of a Jedi (and yes, I know many of you are reading this and snickering already), I can’t deny what has been bestowed upon me since the day I was born. I am a woman. I’m going to experience the things every woman does in this time and age…except a little differently since I’ve chosen to follow a slightly different path…aka the Jedi way.
One point or another, I will be dissecting the Jedi Code for all its worth and applying it to the way I currently live my life in this place we call home. The United States, the good ol’ US of A. Let me tell you…read any Star Wars material and our world is so completely different. Granted, one is real, the other fictional. Doesn’t mean nothing of use can’t be pulled from it.

In case you can’t tell from the title…I am a Star Wars fan. Fan is putting it too lightly, to be perfectly honest with all of you. I am a Star Wars fanatic…a nerd…the ultimate geek…just a huge, huge, HUGE follower of everything Star Wars.
On top of that, I believe in the principles of the Jedi. A large part of me is Jedi. When asked about my religious preferences, I say Jedism. I’m a believer in the Force. In today’s society, it isn’t easy to stick to one’s religious beliefs.
But, that’s why I’m here. To understand what it means to be a Jedi in modern times 🙂
