Words Women Use / Say and what they really mean:
1.) FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
2.) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five Minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
3.) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in “fine”.
4.) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!
5.) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a nonverbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)
6.) That’s Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
7.) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you’re welcome.
8.) Whatever: Is a women’s way of saying SCREW YOU!
9.) Don’t worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking “what’s wrong,” and for the woman’s response to that, refer to # 3.
10.) CAN’T WE JUST BE FRIENDS? There is no way I’m going to let any part of your body touch any part of mine, ever again.
11.) I JUST NEED SOME SPACE. … without you in it.
12.) DO I LOOK FAT IN THIS DRESS? We haven’t had a fight in a while.
13.) NO, PIZZA’S FINE. … you cheap slob!
14.) I JUST DON’T WANT A BOYFRIEND NOW. I just don’t want you as a boyfriend now.
15.) I DON’T KNOW, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO? I can’t believe you have nothing planned.
16.) COME HERE. My puppy does this, too.
17.) I LIKE YOU, BUT… I don’t like you.
18.) OF COURSE I LOVE YOU. … just not in that way.
19.) YOU NEVER LISTEN. You never listen.
20.) WE’RE MOVING TOO QUICKLY. I’m not pursuing this relationship until I am positive I can’t do any better than you.
21.) I’LL BE READY IN A MINUTE. I’m ready, but I’m going to make you wait because I know you will.
22.) I NEED NEW SHOES. The other 40 pairs are simply the wrong shade.
23.) I HEARD A NOISE. I noticed you were almost asleep.
24.) DO YOU LOVE ME? I'm going to ask for something expensive.
25.) HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE ME? I did something today you're really going to hate.
26.) IT'S YOUR DECISION. The correct decision should be obvious by now.
26.) YOU'RE SO MANLY. You need a shave and you sweat a lot.
27.) THIS KITCHEN IS SO INCONVIENENT. I want a new house.
28.) DO YOU LIKE THIS RECIPE? It's easy to fix, so you'd better get used to it.
29.) I'M SORRY. You'll be sorry!
30.) I WAS WRONG. Not as wrong as you!
31.) ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME? Too late, you're dead!

10.) "WHAT'S WRONG" I don’t see why you are making such a big deal out of this.
11.) YOU LOOK UPSET. I guess sex tonight is out of the question

27. "I HEARD YOU" "I haven't the foggiest clue what you just said, and am hoping desperately that I can fake it well enough so that you don't spend the next 3 days yelling at me."
28. "YOU KNOW I COULD NEVER LOVE ANYONE ELSE" "I am used to the way you yell at me, and realize it could be worse."
29. "YOU LOOK TERRIFIC" "Oh, God, please don't try on one more outfit. I'm starving."

One such is Korea, seems like so far away....has it really been 17 years ago when I was in Korea?
I think I was, what...hmmm, 19 or 20 years old here in this picture.
Yes, I realize that is not regulation head gear, not unless the Army adpoted No Beer, No Work" as normal head gear for soldiers. [chuckles]
Ungh, do you realize I could drink most adults under the table and then some at age 19 just from being in Korea? There was not that much to do when your base is so close to the DMZ and out in the boonies. At 20 years old, after I got back to the States, my next duty station ended up being Fort Campbell, KY and I met up with a buddy of mine that just got back from Turkey...between the both of us, we drank 13 pitchers of beer.
2nd Infantry Division.
Man I was so proud to wear that patch, it was like a badge of honor.
I guess it was party cause I am part Indian myself, it felt like fate I suppose.
Ah, too funny, ran across someone from the Silver Star Outlaws in Korea, seems this person built a website for those in '97. I can probably add pictures from my day in '90, by the way, I had 2 names, "Roo" and "Shutterbug". I was always taking pictures...[chuckles]
Silver Star Outlaws was a Korean Bar outside of Camp Casey (pictured above), which was about 2 hours east of where I was stationed at Camp Edwards. The Korean city was Dongducheon, or commonly referred to us as, the TDC.
Hmmm, doing a little searching ran me into a few more Silver Star Outlaw member sites, Brians' page has some pics of the bar and a few Silver Star Outlaws.
Definately a special group. A home away from home.
Hmmm, doing a little more research seeing if I can find more pictures on the net to show you, found that Camp Edwards seems to have been closed and given back to South Korea.
Well, I will see if I can dig up some of the "interesting" pictures of what soldiers do when off duty...and post some of them. [laughs]
Meanwhile head on over to my Tenant and go check out her blog.
Go on, you know your curious...c'mon click it.....
Need to make sure she gets her moneys worth and I do so try......
Was it because I have a daughter (Drama Queen) and I talk about her? Where the kissing and privates came from I don't know...but....ungh...do not come here please.
Thank you google for making my post sound raunchy and sexual...ungh. I looked at what the search brought up and this is what google cached on my post:
Taking a Sanity Break: December 2006 I have seen little boys kiss a girl on a cheek, I have seen two little girls ... and responsibilities on children who know that their privates are for going ... breakinsanity.blogspot.com/2006_12_01_breakinsanity_archive.html - 95k -
Way to make what I was writing sound sexual about children....[sighs]
Hmm that was a search done through Blogger itself, which brought up this post from my blog:
Taking Politically Correct too far 21 Dec 2006 by Break from Sanity The incident was described as "sexual harassment" on the school form. School officials consider a student's age and ... Fifteen of those suspensions were for sexual harassment. ... Children do not think of sexual harrassment, adults do. ...
Interesting what mixes of words will bring up.
What else can I find people searching for that come up with my blog.......
Hmmm, this one I can fully understand:
Referring URL http://www.google.co...c &btnG=Search&meta= Search Engine google.com.au Search Words lower back sores after chiropractic
Since I did a few detailed posts and charts on what has happened to my back (I am still recovering) and how much pain I was in, I feel for you (person searching) if you are going through problems with your back. It is nothing to take lightly. You take for granted bending over to put on or tie your shoes...until you can't.
Hmm, a few minor news searches on "leg buckling" (related to what I wrote about my back problem) and another news search on a Walmart break in, related to an earlier posting I wrote probably about shopping at Walmart during Christmas.
Other searches noticed:
Luxury yachts: Oh boy, you picked the wrong section. I have a plastic toy boat though if you really want one....
Dance fads of the 1970s: Ummm, that would be DISCO. C'mon, you know you want to sing it....IN THE NAVY....or how about ....MACHO MACHO MAN...[chuckles]
[Rolling on the floor laughing at the moment.....]
Bengay smell: Ok, c'mon...you were searching for a Bengay SMELL? Scratch and Sniff? [laughs]
TAKING ME FOR STUPID: Yes, that is exactly how the search was typed out, and it looks to be that the searcher was ANGRY. Funny thing is, my blog post was 1st up on the hit that search got. [chuckles]
Save me from stupidity: Funny, same post as the "TAKING ME FOR STUPID" search came up number one again.
I should check out who is out there searching and hitting my blog. Makes for a quick chuckle here and there.

I am a big fan of the new TV show "Heroes."
It goes beyond what I have normally seen on movies where we only have a little bit of background on the newly emerging hero, most likely due to time constraints of the movie itself, where it does jump right into the fight, newly attained super-powers blazing away. No, Heroes takes it deeper inside and delves deeper inside what it means to be a hero; how they feel, the trials and tribulations they go through figuring out their powers, their confusion, how it turns their life upside down, the freedom it gives them at times, and how scary it is for them.
The only super hero movie that came close was Spiderman, which gave us glimpses of the background and how he went through things in his life, but nothing of major substance, again, most likely because of movie time constraints.
There was a short-lived tv show called "The Greatest American Hero" that was probably the best in trying to portrait the fumbling and bumbling through trying to figure out his "super-powers", which in this case came from the suit itself:
Los Angeles high school teacher Ralph Hinkley encountered an alien spacecraft while on a desert field trip and was presented with a red costume with unique superpowers. The suit looked like a pair of tight fitting red pajamas with a black cape and bestowed fantastic powers (flight, incredible speed, telekinesis, clairvoyance, invisibility, invulnerability from bullets and super strength) to this blond, mild-mannered high school teacher. The aliens had chosen Hinkley because he matched their profile of someone having the qualities of "moral character, idealism and integrity."
Unfortunately, before Ralph got the hang of the suit's abilities, he lost the instruction book that came with it. He spent the rest of the series clumsily fighting evil as he tried to unlock the many mysteries of this extraterrestrial costume.
But with Heroes, we are given several individuals who are slowly being drawn together (masterfully worked), they are discovering their powers, confusion is the most prevalent reaction as they try and figure out what is happening to themselves, from the teenage cheerleader that can't seem to be killed or hurt (story revolves around her - "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World") to the Japenese man who can freeze time and travel through it (realizing also at this point he hits and misses when traveling) and learning of their own responsibilities that they are becoming aware of.
This is definately a show I have become hooked on. It is well put together, draws you into the lives of the characters and what they are going through, the feelings, decisions and paths they take.
The show revloves around the theme "Save the Cheerleader - Save the World", in which the cheerleader who cannot seem to be hurt or die (she has fallen off buildings, burned herself, even had a branch stuck through her neck to heal it all back to normal), is some how linked to a disaster that is soon to happen five weeks in the future, where a terrible explosion (nuclear by the looks of it) blows up the city.
Which brings me to the my current thoughts......
If you had a super power, what would you "prefer" to have (we never get what we truly would like - it just doesn't work that way) and how do you think you would handle learning about your power (practicing with it, testing it), and do you think it would be a gift, or a curse?
Think of Invisibility... Many would think it would be great to have no one see you. Think of the things you could do or see when no one knew you were there. But also think of the movie the Invisible Man / Hollow Man where he found he could not return back and be seen again. What would it do to YOUR mind?
There is an episode of the Twilight Zone I believe that dealt with this also, where a man was able to turn himself Invisible, and caused all sorts of trouble. He was invisible and forgot that he was and was struck by a truck while crossing the street because the truck did not see him. He laid by the side of the road dying, still invisible, while many remarked on how bad the area was beginnning to stink.
So, where some would say this power of invisibility would be great, and neat, I doubt the two above would consider it so, in fact, it might have been a curse to them instead.
How would you test it?
As you got braver and flew, aside from being so far up in the air, and being probably scared out of your mind since we as human beings normally fly in machines (airplanes) or have parachutes to cushion us as we waft back to earth on the breezes; what would you do if you lost your concentration, your fear took over and you were no longer able to fly - while being a thousand feet in the air?
I remarked on another blog that posted a similiar question about how I would love to be able to breathe underwater and to withstand the crushing depths of the ocean so I could explore a whole new world that has never been explored before.
But what would happen if at such depths that ability faded? Or if I found out that I no longer could walk on land again, but only could breathe in the water and not air? Would it be such a great thing or a curse?
What makes something great can easily be turned into a curse.
But just remember that the flip is true, what may feel like a curse, could be a gift in disguise.
Go check out my tenant, Self-Proclaimed Supermom, and see what she has been up to.
She only has 10 hours left as my tenant as of this posting, so head on over there and peruse through her blog and see what she is about.

Just for giggles I thought I would write a few quick paragraphs for fun, on just whatever passed through my head at the time to see how well I could do.
She sat across from me on the blanket we spread across the misted, green grass. Her hair fluttered around her head like a halo, light mist glittering in each strand making her hair seemingly filled with sparkling diamonds.
The mist drifts up from the waterfall crashing into the pool ten feet below; the rumble of the constant rush of water as it crashes down to the pool fills our ears as we laugh with delight......
I was running out of air.
I could feel the air in my lungs yearning, no, more like burning for release, to flee from my chest wildly and to suck in a great lung-full of fresh air...
I dared not, could not, it would mean certain death by drowning if I allowed this burning need, so I clamped my lips together tightly, my chest hot with desire for breath as I struggled toward the surface.
It is so dark this deep that I can barely make out my hands in front of my face as I frantically struggle upward.
I can't... I don't know if I can...
Is that a light?
Are my eyes playing tricks on me?
My chest is screaming or is it myself screaming behind my tightly clamped lips? I don't know, but I know I won't last much longer.
Please God, let that be the surface....
"Where the hell is he?", I mutter to myself.
He was suppose to go in, grab a pack of smokes and be right back.
I stare at the small party store, grumbling at how long he is taking, when he bursts out of the door like the demons of Hell were on right on his tail.
He sees me staring slack-jawed at his exit from the store, and yells, "GO! GO! GO! WE NEED TO GET THE HELL OUTTA HERE NOW! MOOOOOVE IT!"
Not knowing what is going on, but knowing urgency when I hear it, my mind kicks into automatic as I shove the car in gear, tires smoking on the pavement, just as he dives into the backseat.
Tearing out of the parking lot and onto the road, I spare a moment to cast my gaze into the backseat where I see him sitting up and a sudden chill spreads up my spine as I say, "What did you do?"
He leans his head back resting it on back of the seat, slowly blowing out the smoke from the cigarette he just lit, and starts to laugh. He continues to stare at the ceiling of the car and chuckling saying, "Man, you should have seen your face when I came bursting out the door like that. What? You think I robbed the place or something?"
[laughter from the backseat]
"I just wanted to put some excitement into your life", he says as I grit my teeth.
"I bet your heart is beating a hundred times a minute right now, eh?", he says as he chuckles some more from the backseat.
I glare into the rearview mirror at him and say, "Remind me to beat you senseless when we stop next...."
Give or take 15 minutes, perhaps a bit more, cause I was dealing with the kids at the same time, is all it took to throw this together off the top of my head.
This was not pre-planned. I decided to try and write from scratch, and just go with a idea or two here or there to write a little bit off the spur of the moment.
