Got this in a email this morning, thought I'd share it with everyone...it's quite funny and ironically, fairly true! LOL tl-pharmacy.com

So tonight, I went to check out Vintage for Sundays. I've heard a lot about it but haven't been there yet on a Sunday. A run-in there with this guy got me thinking....seriously, has picking up girls gotten so hard that you got to resort this?! His pick-up method has made it to the top of my list...
1. Let me begin by saying that I have nothing against geeky looking guys, I think that they are nice and fun people, however, there are ones that are just weird. Such as the guy from tonight: slightly bald, dressed in a white button down shirt with colorful skinny stripes with the buttons opened up just enough to reveal his very hairy chest - it was like a forest of brown curly hair, not my thing. He wore a pair of red, half-rimmed glasses and looked almost like the stereotyped computer geek.
He comes up to me and my girlfriend, asks how we're doing, we answered: "We're good, thanks."
"Well, you guys look like you're a little bored, I just wanted to see how you guys are."
"We're cool, thanks."
Suddenly, I realized what this guy has started doing....taking off his glasses off and on and asking us if we thought he looked better with the glasses on or off. OMG!!!!! We are in the middle of the club! What the hell?!?! Then he proceeded to ask us if we wanted a drink, I declined politely. He asked us to dance, I made an excuse about needing going to the restroom, grabbed my girlfriend's arm, bolted.
SERIOUSLY, asking if we thought he looked better with or without his red, half-rimmed glasses?!?!
2. This brought me back to a few years ago, to a quite memorable incident at Wal-Mart......
I went shopping after work, dressed still in my work clothes - I just remembered my khaki pencil skirt with my chocolate brown wedges. As I went down one aisle, shoving my shopping cart, I walked by this guy and I felt his eyes staring at my legs as I walked past. Then he begin to follow me, which was quite creepy, and stopped me to ask me if I had a boyfriend. Now this guy looked like the stereotyped black guy, I think he had dreadlocks or maybe he wore hat. Can't remember exactly now, I just remembered baggy clothes, thuggish looking, he looked like he just walked out of a rap video. Nothing against a black guy who looks like that, not interested, and of course, I answered: "Yes, I do have a boyfriend."
"Are you happy with him? Do you love him?"
Me stunned, "Uh yes, he makes very happy."
"Are you sure you're happy?"
"Yes, I'm sure"
"Alright, I just wanted to make sure. Cause ya know, just wanna let you know that you're beautiful and if you're not happy, we could have something something on the side."
OMG, I almost burst out laughing, not because of who he is but because of his boldness. Nice touch on the compliment part.
And you'd think that if you told a guy that you have a boyfriend, he'd back off....go figure!!!
3. This one just came suddenly to me, it wasn't quite a pick-up method, however it did scare me off.
I was at the club with some friends and was standing around with just a girlfriend when this guy came up to talk to us. I made some small talk and left my girlfriend to talk to the guy, I forgot what happened exactly but I remembered that I wasn't paying sole attention to this guy. This dude, is tall and mean looking, with a lot of dents in his face and spiky hair. He stares at me and says, "Am I so ugly that you can't look at me?!"
Uhh...what the hell?! Granted, this guy wasn't very appealing to look at, however, some impression to make on a girl by yelling at her "Am I so ugly that you can't look at me?!"
These little anecdotes are for entertainment purposes only. Shall I remember or encounter any funny incidents, I will share. If anyone should feel inclined to share their funny pick-up stores, I'd love to hear them. This is not to say that I have not been swept off my feet by some, well normally, it takes some time...but still, I'm not totally cold-hearted! I just think that funny stories should be shared!
Next to come...people watching!

I don't know what it is about cleaning that makes me feel so therapeutic. I admit, I'm like the typical person and a lot of time I'll let thing pile up and clutter up. It drives me nuts but I'll just leave it there until I "have time" or rather when I do decide to actually do something about it. Today was one of those days, thankfully in partial for the long weekend, when I've had time to recuperate and also do productive things. Therefore I've cleaned up all my clothes that were piling up on a blanket on my closet floor, I haven't bothered to unpack everything from my move two months ago.... Anyhow, I've cleaned out one huge bag of clothes and another bag of shoes, organized all my shoes boxes by color & style and they are stacked in stacks of three. This way I won't run into another episode of "missing shoes" (they were stuck between the wall and my tower of shoe boxes). I've shifted stuff around and cleared out half the space in my room, now all that's left are my boxes of books and dvds that I need to sell. Sort through jewelry, reorganize my clothes that are hanging, hopefully I will get this done soon. In addition to it all, I cooked for the first time in awhile, like, really, really cooked. I picked up groceries from Central Market for dinner. If there were more people, I would've made baked pasta made with turkey and organic pasta, since there weren't, I'm saving that for later in the week. I toasted some bread and made a jalapeno bacon cream corn chowder, my personal recipe. :p Haven't been to Central Market in so long that I had to make up for some past traditions. Previously, I always picked up some small little goody for myself, whether it be exotic flavor chocolates or water (I have a thing for trying different brands of imported water, I don't know why, I just do) or salsa pesto. Since I haven't purchased any cases of Smart Waters recently, I bought myself a bottle today. Soooo need to get back to Costco and pick up more cases! Also, being in the mood for some spicy chocolate, I tried this new brand of chipotle chocolate. It's not bad, but it could be a bit spicier..... Bottom line: life's been pretty crazy lately, so hectic and feels like a mess. I feel soooo much better now that I've cleaned!!!! Cleaning is one of my favorite therapies!!!!

So I probably shocked a lot of people by doing this, but I've always wanted one. Just didn't know where and what to get. The other night that I was out, it just suddenly came to me, I knew exactly what I wanted and where. The few friends who knew about it didn't think that I would fall through with it. Of course I went through with it, it felt right and I was determined. I was told that where I got it was the most painful area, popped two Advils, but we didn't get started until 4 hours later. The artist took a picture that I gave him and drew the design, a little modification here and there. It was perfect, the one and only, because he destroyed the design! ;) The process took 4 hours, I almost fell asleep in the beginning, but by the end, it was hurting bad. I was biting on my shirt, grabbing onto my shirt or pillows, and pushing against the couch because of the pain. Yea, I went through the whole process without pain killers or anything of the sort, just needed my iPod with my fob music and I was good to go. Not a single tear baby
It's almost done, just need to go back and get darker purple shadows on it to make it pop!
It's all about the plum blossoms....Read all

"Baby, don't be fragile like glass, but be clear like crystal, shining as the sun, strong as winter plum blossoms; since you've opened your eyes to enjoy the wind's coolness, don't complain about the tiny grains of sand in the wind."
This is a quote that GBF Stanford gave me a long time ago, I translated it, I loved it, it holds a lot of meaning to me. Recently someone said to me: "You're a strong person, no man, not even me could ever take that away from you." There have been times when I've doubted that that was true and shocked myself with my own weaknesses. But now, more than ever, I believe it. I refuse to let events, people, situations, and any sort of bad energy to bring me down. It took me a long time to get back up and I'm not going to fall again. I have a lot going for me right now and a lot on my plate, but I am me, I am Juice and I can handle all that shit. I've done it before and I will do it over and over again.
It's all about the plum blossoms baby...thriving & blooming during the harshest of weathers...
