Love Life Meme


First love?

My first true love was a Mexican immigrant girl I met entirely by mistake. She called my house one day by mistake and I ended up talking with her for over an hour in broken Spanish, I think she set my tendency to fall in love with latino women for life. I lost her when she moved back to Mexico, but our last night together was (despite the fact that we never even made love, one of the most romantic of my life.

Most memorable date?

Actually there were several.
The first was when I blew $3000 on a date by taking a girl to New York City to see CATS on Broadway, (flying from LA). We stayed at Waldorf Hilton, had dinner at Tavern on the Green, and did a buggy ride through central park.
The second was when after pursuing a very sexy young woman for months, she finally told me that she would come to my house for dinner. We ended up drinking a couple of bottles of wine, and she made a bet with me that she could outlast me in the bedroom. Never having been a drinker, I lost the bet after having too much wine, and was not my usual self, but she was gracious in victory.


Most Scandalous Moment

Tie.
Making love under the Christmas Tree with a girlfriend while my mother slept in a nearby room.
Making out in a secluded park near where I worked, every day for lunch for nearly six months.

Funniest Date

Going out with a girl in college who’s father was a hard core racist, and dining at the finest restaurant in Beverly Hills on HIS American Express Card.

Sexiest Date
Tie

Picking up a lady who I had always had a thing for, but had never acted on it, in a bar one night, and then finding out she was with her “girlfriend.”
Spending an incredible few days in Los Angeles with a lady I met and fell in Love with over the Internet, we started the weekend in the Garage at LAX, and it only got better from there.
Making love by Fireplace light all night one night with the first lady from this question, “this time alone.”
Longest Date
The days I spent with lady number two from the last question. Three days.

Worst Date

Another Internet one. Met a lady in Los Angeles who was so into herself, that I don’t think she had the capacity to love anyone else. She ate like a horse and spent the whole time talking about herself.
Spending the night with a girlfriend in one of the worst hotels in the world, when I could not find a room anywhere else. The place was hot, cramped and infested with roaches.

Greatest Love

Don’t want to incriminate myself by naming one.

Wildest Experience

Spending a weekend with a girlfriend and three of her very sexy friends in the same bed when they came to visit me at this isolated hotel I was staying at in Costa Rica. Fortunately I had a BIG bed.

Most Passionate Memory
Spending evenings in Malibu Canyon necking with a beautiful lady.

Most Embarrassing Date

See Incident Number 2 of most memorable date.

Reflections....


It has been a long and challenging day. I have been working on the final details of my seminar project for the 24th, and today was one of those days that reminded me what friendship is all about. I want to add two sponsors/presenters to the event representing CRM and e-business. Since most of the people here, who represent companies that are in those market segments are.... How shall I put this... NOT very cooperative. I contacted my best friends from the States to help me. Eric is in Minnessota, Hisham was in Phoenix working on a project as an Oracle developer. Irfan is the CRM God for AAA in San Francisco, Marcos is a big Marketing YaYa for Sun, and Mike is a top gun for Dell Enterprise support. All of them are now on the case helping me to identify the right people at Dell and Oracle to talk with about participating. So I am sitting here in the semi darkness and remembering when we all lived near the City By the Bay, and listening to a little... who else... Journey. This one is for you Bros.... I miss you, and my city by the Bay. And I love you dearly.

Its Too Bad We Did Not Learn Anything From The 60's...








It was a time of Prophets and Wise Men and Women, who sang of love and challenged us to forget about our differences and live to love, not to kill. I have been on an oldies kick lately. Just listening to the music, and realizing how lucky I am to have been born when I was. I wish I could have my own radio station. I would play nothing after say 1985, no rap except for Tupac, and just send out the love vibe with the music.
So if you are reading this, just kick back for a moment, dim the lights and go back in time for a bit. Listen to what Sly and the Family Stone were saying so many years ago, and tell me couldnt we all be doing a lot better if we lived for love, forgot our differences and sought compromise instead of hate.

Yeehah!


Okay, this one could go in Project Apollonia, Grupo Utopia or probably a bunch of other places too, but I just have to say it. I am so happy, "I am beside myself," as my Mama used to say.
I am not in the mood to write about what an idiot Bush is!
OBVIOUS!
I am not in the mood to write about how great or how bad Costa Rica can be!
OBVIOUS!
I am not in the mood to write about the evils of Racism or the people who are too stupid or self absorbed to realize it still exist.
OBVIOUS!

No, today I just want to spend a moment and thank God and all the wonderful people who make my life Interesting and fun.

Lazy Days....


Today is one of those lazy days. Slept until 11:00am, and haven't done anything since. I was sitting here watching XXX on HBO with my son, when the main character is about to jump out of the back of a C140 Transport plane with a bunch of other guys. Everyone seems scared but him, as he shouts, "I live for this shit." Sort of sums up my life. Damn! I did not realize until recently what a crazy life I have had. I was reading some other blogs today, not the best ones, just some others and realized that by comparison with some, my life is INTENSE. Even on a day like today, when nothing in particular is going on, I realize that just around the corner is another adventure. I am good to go!

Memories




DREAMS
By Stevie Nicks






Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It's only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat...drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost...
And what you had...
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say...Women...they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean...you'll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It's only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and...
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness...
Like a heartbeat...drives you mad...
In the stillness of remembering what you had...
And what you lost
What you had...
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say...Women...they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean...you'll know

Threw Down on the BBQ Tonight


Nothing like Steak, Chicken and hot dogs on the grill when it is hot. Fortunately we had no rain today, so while the kids and their mama was at the amusement park I did the grill bit.

Thinkin'


An old friend of mine... Richard Iadevia, (Sorry if I spelled the name wrong Richard), once told me my life would make a damned good read. I don't know about that, but I know Debs post about past loves got me to thinking.

I think my problem has always been that I am always looking for something better.

In retrospect, Suzette was just one of many. I had a problem with getting bored in a relationship. In looking at it, I think a lot of it has to do with my own insecurities. I was the smart fat kid who didnt even have a girlfriend until I was about 17. To make matters worse, my best friend in high school and college was so handsome that my sisters all had a crush on him. I was always the ugly duckling, or at least I felt like it. I was 25 and having my first successes in business when women suddenly "discovered me."

Stressful day


It has been one of those days. The kids get out of school early on Fridays, and since I am working at home, I have them running around driving me nuts. I should have left today, no way I can work with so many distractions...

The Story of Suzette


I read this the other night on Debwire, and it has been on my mind every since. For a variety of reasons, it provoked thought. I wanted to share something similar that has been on my mind for years.

About 13 years ago I was an up and coming executive at Packard Bell Electronics in Chatsworth, CA. I was young, making oogles of money, single and living the carefree life. Suzette was a secretary in Human Resources at Packard Bell. She was this thick, sexy Puerto Rican girl with a New York Attitude, and I liked her the moment I saw her. But there was one problem. There was a wedding picture on her desk...

At the time I met Suzette I was doing a lot of hiring, and worked closely with HR. Suzette was part of a team that was responsible for helping me in my hiring processes. Eventually we spent a lot of time together. As I got to know her, I also got to know what an asshole her husband was. While he never hit her, he was emotionally abusive, an unemployed loser, and the epitome of the Macho Latin Male. Suzette would work all day, and then come home to a dirty house and expectations from him that she cook.

Must Be a Mid-Life Crises!


I just noticed that I have three half naked, beautiful women on the Blogs main page right now. Sex on the brain... Maybe... Maybe it is the 44 thing. LOL!

Thanks For the Memories...


Well in a few hours, I celebrate my 44th year on this planet of ours. I have witnessed the assassination of an American President, the resignation of another, the impeachment of another for sexual misconduct, and the complete corruption of the political process by our current president.
I have lived through three wars, the assassination of three of my heroes in Bobby Kennedy, Malcom X and Martin Luther King, the sexual revolution, the birth of Rap and New Age Music, and the devastating plague that is AIDS. I have seen man land on the moon, and begin the first colonies in space. I have seen the rise and fall of roll models like OJ and Michael, and I have seen the best and worst of who we are as a people.
I have went from ghetto child to international traveler. I have married and helped to create and shape three beautiful children. I have loved Madly and been loved.
I have created and I have destroyed.
Through it all, I have tried to learn, to grow.
I want to take a moment to thank all those who have had such a great impact on my life. I am not going to mention names, because there are too many to mention, and to forget someone would be unforgivable.
You KNOW who you are. And I will always love you and be grateful to you for the gifts you have given me. It has been a wonderful, tragic, scary, and almost always, eventful life…
I am grateful for the time God has given me, and I hope to have 44 more.
