Random programming

Random programming

Back in December I mentioned that I would occasionally be posting random thoughts on questions I have found on other blogs.  This is one of those times and it pertains to those I have let slip away for no other reason than…well many reasons that I will go into.

I have to say that I am not the best at keep in touch with others and it is a horrible thing that I let this go on.  It is due to this that I have no close friends and it sometimes makes me sad.

I have a friend that was a very good friend in high school.  For many reasons, after school we drifted apart and although we are now FaceBook friends, it is not the same.  I don’t know if it was the difference in our personalities that time brought to light or what, but it happened and I can’t seem to make it right again.  She recently had a health issue and I could not bring myself to let her know that I was thinking about her and hope things got better.  I was apathetic and I hate that.  Does this make me a bad person?  A bad friend for sure, but a bad person?

The other ones really get to me sometimes.  I was one of the founding members of a coven in Wisconsin and we no sooner got things off the ground than people started moving.  I miss every one of the members, but two in particular I find myself longing to have time with all the time.  These two wonderful ladies were my best friends and even though we all had busy lives while we lived in the same town, knowing that they were close by was a comfort.  Now, there are 1200 and 1300 miles between us and I feel every mile at times.

I don’t make close friends very easily and the “loss” of these two weighs heavy on me when I have need of someone to listen to my rantings and to give me a hug and say that things will be better.  I find myself close to tears just writing this.  I know that I could make more of an effort to reach out to them, but our schedules are all so screwed up that I hate to bother them in what could be the middle of their night.

I know that I need someone to be there for me when I need a shoulder to cry on and sometimes I can’t go to my husband because it may be something little he did that caused my feelings.  I am not talking a huge thing that we need to talk about to keep things on track, but the little irritations that just simply get to me at times.  You know, the way he leaves his coat hung on the back of his desk chair instead of hanging it up.  Things that won’t break us, but that I need to vent over.  I don’t have anyone to go to and complain about things with and I feel that emptiness acutely.

That is one of the reasons I started this blog.  The Lycan does not want to read any of my blog because he feels that it is my outlet because he knows that I have no one.  He doesn’t even read it when I post on of his guest blogs on here, he asks if there are any comments, but that is about it.  So, I use this as the occasional bitch session and make do.

Wow did I go off course or what?  LOL

Best Boxing/Wrestling Movie

    Before I start I would like to state that this is my opinion.  This is not meant to start a conflict of interest.  On this subject these are just simply my own views and interest.  If you do feel the need to comment, please feel free to do so.  Please keep in mind to refrain from the use of curse words and bad language.  Let’s just agree to disagree.

    For all of you wrestling and boxing fans, “Real Steel” is by far the best boxing and/or wrestling, what have you, movie of all time.  “Rocky” eat your heart out!  I’ll have all of you know that I am a “Rocky” fan.  Yo!  Adrianne…  Adrianne!  But still “Real Steel” makes “Rocky” look like a high school wrestling match.  Aw!  Sorry, I know I said it.

    Yes I know that in “Real Steel” it is a fight between two robots, and not a fight between two men or women.  Like in wrestling where it is fake any way.  Oh sure they do hit and kick each other.  But come on!  When they do hit it is never a real punch.  It is a slap right across the chest.  It is almost always a near miss or hit.  The only time they do hit with a kick it is the two feet pushing off of the chest.  Any other time it is just placed on or a near miss or hit.  

Wrestling will never be the way it was long ago when it was real.  In a time where one could really see a man punch another man’s teeth out.  Now that is real wrestling.  That type of wrestling is too dangerous now a days.  There would be too much risk for the wrestler.  

In “Real Steel” one can get some of the same effects as one would once get from the “old” wrestling.  You can watch two bots literally tear each other apart.  Metal bits, parts, and limbs fly off in all directions.  You can’t ask for a more satisfying fight than this movie without it being illegal.  At least this way all you have to wipe up is oil, not blood.  I think it is much better this way.  No family would lose a father and/or mother.  Best part, due to no blood, kids can enjoy it too.  Well some any way.  Kids always ask your parents first.
