Stop Dream Stalking Me, Rock

"Don't forget we've got another Barmitzvah to go to tonight" I yell to Jason from the bathroom.
"We sure have a lot of these to go to. We'll be broke by time the month ends." Jason gripes.
"That's not true." I laugh.

After a while, we are dressed and walking to our destination.

"Don't forget this is a special Barmitzvah. They will have Sari's to buy. I love Sari's." I say as we approach our destination.
"Are you saying that we should go home so you can't buy any more Sari's!" Jason says.
"Don't be silly. Let's go!!" I say grabbing his hand and pull him to the door.

We are ushered to our seats. We see a wall full of Sari's. I notice 3 that I absolutely love. I was so fascinated that I didn't notice that someone sat down next to me. Jason leaned over to tell me the The Rock is sitting next to me. That brought me out of my trance and into the reality of the situation.

"What are you doing here?" I hiss at The Rock.
"I'm enjoying a Barmitzvah and sitting down next to a sexy woman." The Rock answers back.
"You know him?" Jason asks.
"Yes she does. We enjoyed 2 wonderful years together." The Rock answers before I do.
"He was my last boyfriend before you. We broke up maybe a year before I met you." I answer Jason. Then I turned towards The Rock.
"Really, Dwayne? Why are you really here?" I ask him.
"I missed you." Rock replies.
"Too bad. I'm married." I flaunt my ring in front of him.
"Does it look like I care. I'm sure I can win you back." Rock says with bravado.
"I have no interest. I love Jason. And I won't do anything to hurt him. So you need to find another one of your exes to stalk."
"I want you."
"I don't." I turn to Jason, "let's switch seats."

We move 2 rows down as they started the sale for the Sari's. They picked up one of 3 I liked. I raised my hands to buy it. They lady came over to me and gave it to my neighbor who happen to be the Rock, again.

"Stop following me!!!!" I exclaim a little to loudly. I turn to Jason. "I just can't win. Sorry babe for all this."

"I didn't know you date The Rock. You are full of surprises. But it is what it is. We'll be home soon." Jason answers.

I put my attention back on the sari sale. I was able to purchase the other 2. Then the DJ called for all husbands to go on stage for some special entertainment. I really didn't want Jason to go. I told him my feelings.

"I wouldn't even be able to take him if it were to come to blows. I trust you." He says as he leaves for the stage. I stand up to follow him. As I stood facing the stage The Rock comes and stands next to me.

"I'll give you this sari if you will admit that all the sexy nights in Havanna meant something to you." The Rock bargains.
"It did at that point of time. I am now happily married to Jason. What we had was in the past." I answer.
"Okay. Good to know that You did have feelings for me. I can see that I thave no chance, but a guy had to try. Here's the sari." he hands me the sari and salutes Jason on stage.

As he leaves, he bends over and whispers "you'll be mine one day" and walks out.

2013 is Gone. What's on The Agenda 2014?

2013 came and went like a blur. I was so busy with my job that I really didn't get to accomplish what I really wanted. I know I shouldn't let job consume my life, especially when they don't pay what I'm worth. But there were highlights and low lights for the year.

Highlights of 2014

1. I had my 1 year anniversary with my husband. I still can't believe that I have a husband much less being 1 year deep. So for our anniversary, we took a cruise to Jamaica, Cozumel and Grand Cayman. But first we stopped by my dad's place so we could eat our top layer if wedding cake, like tradition.
2. We taken a short trip to Florida to spend with my mom and the beach. We actually left the airport and went straight to the beach. We made couple beach stops which granted us 2 stops at Joe's Crab Shack. Eating Joe's after the beach is an awesome compliment to the day. We met up with family and friends. My aunt and my mom's friend were postering who's favorite I was. Lol, never seen grown women act that way before. It was an experience.
3. We took a trip to New Mexico to visit Jason's family. Had a good time except for one day (see this post). We went to Santa Fe, the State Fair and I got my iPhone 5S. Didn't have to wait in a line like I would have to in NY. Jason got to order his because they didn't have the unlocked version yet. It was great seeing Jason's family. They are great. I couldn't ask for more. They have accepted me totally.

There really isn't any more highlights. I was spending my life working & stressing. So with that note, let's get into the lowlights of the year.

1. Lost a 20 year friendship over bullshit. (See point #3 above)
2. Spent hours of overtime at work that I will never get back or get compensated for. Frankly, I'm not appreciated. However, unless you are the CEO/President are you really?
3. My father had a stroke and I couldn't be there for him. Reason? Work wouldn't let me off and my father being stubborn and not wanting me to see him ill. Makes me realize that time is running out for my parents. They are getting to the age where anything can happen and both of them are sickly.

What do I expect in 2014? I do expect some changes big and small. So far the following are in the works:

1. Planning a 14 day cruise with my mom to Asia. Leaves Japan and ends in Singapore. I'm excited about this. The only things that would prevent this would be pregnancy and death.
2. Building my website this year for my personal consulting business; C Leigh Consulting. My company services are tax, accounting and minor computer services. I am looking forward to this site. I used to have one on Google Apps and they discontinued their services, as usual.
3. Building my company. Hoping to really expand my company. So a good focus is needed. I have 2 clients that need data entry currently. One can't be done on a regular basis. Other is starting to need to, but not enough to be my sole bread winner.
4. I also want to get these stories out of my head and onto paper (more like book). I don't want to leave this earth without getting them down. So I am going to try to write more.

Well 2014 is going to be a year of changes; good or bad. One thing for sure I'm going to live it to the best with the people who live and support me. What do you want to accomplish in 2014?

2013 Wrap Up

2013 was an interesting year for gaming and app use. I certainly started off the year gung-ho but lost steam thru-out the year due to work and stress-related laziness. So let's see what I've accomplished then move on to what I want to accomplish.

Let's start with the 2013 wrap up.

1. I bought and got swept up in Pokemon X. I finished the game around New Years. By the way, this is the 1st game I have completed in entirety on the 3DS.
2. I'm still playing Simpsons Tapped Out steadily. I finally completed 2 out many seasonal events (Thanksgiving & Christmas)
3. I did not run out and get a Wii Universe, PS4 or an Xbox One. I don't play many console games.
4. Got my character on FFXIV to level 20. Got my ass handed to me on my level 20 lancer guild quest. Currently lost in the outskirts of Uldah. On my way to getting to Ifrit dungeon. Not fond of dungeons. Would rather do quests and fates.
5. I have started FFIII and FFIV on my iOS devices. I like IV better than III tho.

Now that we wrapped up 2013, what do I want to accomplish in 2014? Let's see...

1. Waiting for PokeBank and PokeTransporter to hit the eshop on the 3DS. It was supposed to come out on Dec 27th, but it hasn't shown itself yet. Once it does, I will transfer my collected Pokemon there.
2. Plan on leveling Dragoon to Level 50 in FFXIV. This is a very loose goal since I don't play very often. Hope they introduce Red Mage. That's favorite FF Job Class.
3. Wishing and waiting for a new Pokemon game. Don't know how often they release games. But I hope for a new one soon.
4. Go back to Pokemon Black 2 and finish it while collecting more Pokemon.
5. Complete FFIV on my iPhone.

I will try to make more time in 2014 to review more games and apps. I have tried so many during 2013 that I really should write about them. It is a goal that I may not accomplish, but I will try my hardest. Wish me luck for being more productive in 2014.

Happy New Year!!
