Well, it appears this small town is not ready for journal entries posted by me.
Considering the phone calls from the day.
Geez, dare I state this small town is seriously closed minded.

Thought this very unusual, and asked if he was a homosexual, he said, “no” and took no offence to the question. I proceeded to dish out loads of advice and stories, Jesse listened, I was astonished that a young man was listening to me, and not due to wanting something more. Been a very long time since a man has actually listened to my words, so the talking, on my part, was most likely over-talking.I feel guilty for filling Jesse’s brain with useless facts (noted in the useless facts section category – on the sidebar to the right).
My Unwanted Advice (to Jesse)
The interview continued on all topics, mostly about dating, sex and marriage. I found a 21 year old’s views on life really interesting, as they are so different from my own. Jesse told me of his girlfriend who lives far away, and that he was madly in love with her, and he wished to marry her. Found this to be even more interesting, as young men of that age (in this area) typically are not ready for marriage.
The Roommate Introduction:
He kindly introduced me to his roommate Dorian, as I walked into their flat.
The flat was amazing! I believe it was above a building, like a studio apartment.The ceilings were high, with crown molding. The building was very old and had much charisma.My amazement grew of the architecture of the rooms that were surrounding me.The crown molding around the windows, doors and on walls, made the flat seem so “homey” and elegant, especially for (2) 21-year-old old college students. Immediately, began dishing out decorating advice, as the flat really needed a woman’s touch. Even though the flat showed obvious signs of “collegeness” it was quant and I just loved it, as I feel every old building tells a story (geek here).
The Fur Coat (has much significance for this report):
The large fur coat hanging on a door, grabbed my immediate attention. I decided best to wait a bit before asking of the coat, it was obviously old and had many stories to tell.
Jesse has a short and stalky build, while Dorian is taller and thinner, they both are exact opposites. Jesse was obviously from the United States, and his lineage appeared to be from the U.S. Dorian’s lineage is Irish.
Myself, Jesse, and Dorian continued lengthy discussions on all subjects; music, human trafficking, vampires, vampire movies, drugs, college, you name it we talked about the subject. The two handsome men’s responses were thoughtful, although I was quite surprised as to their not studying/reading much of American or world history, this surprised me as I learned such things early on in high school and college here in the United States (history nerd here). Both of their questions were intelligent and were well spoken and seem of a good & higher education (which I found refreshing).
The Aging Statement:
Jesse said, “My grandmother’s favorite music artist is Janis Joplin.” I was shocked, as my favorite artist is Janis Joplin (70′s rock singer/songwriter). In other words, this statement by Jesse made me feel very old. Like a dinosaur, the statement aged me.
My Life Odd?:
The conversations continued on as Jesse and Dorian were asking me bountiful questions of my life. Seemed as though, they were interviewing me, found their questions intriguing, questions that made me look at my self and life. Didn’t think my life was that odd, but apparently my life is not typical whatsoever compared to other woman in suburbia, of my age. Dorian and Jesse politely guessed my age at 31, thought that was sweet, as I am 34 or 35, one of those ages, I forget which one. The conversation continued into the wee hours of the night, and the discussions went deeper and deeper into the thoughts of my own and of the two young, handsome students.
My spuing out facts, just to see their reaction, or if they knew of such facts. I asked these questions to the two:
“Do you know the significance of the song by the band Filter, “Hey Man, Nice Shot?” Dorian and Jess responding with “no.”
“Do you know where vampire lure originated from?” They responded, “no.”
“Did you know there are many children missing in Romania for no reason?” They responded, “what are your thoughts on where the children are located?” Amazed at their thoughtful and polite questions as such a young age, I responded, “I feel the children in Romania (in my opinion) have most likely been abducted or sold into human trafficking and taken to Mexico or the United States.” I requested to change topic, as the discussion of such things makes me terribly sad (almost cry). Dorian and Jesse responded, “that’s probably right.”
Sex Topic of Interview:
“How often do you have sex and with whom?” was my next question of the two.
Jessie quickly responded, “only with my girlfriend when she is is town.” Dorian stated, “a few times a week…I go to a homosexual bar and take home the straight woman that hang out there.” (yes, I was amazed, yet again).
I then asked Dorian, “Are you a homosexual?” He responded, with an abrupt “no.” I knew he was not, due to him only looking at my chest while speaking to me, but figured a valid question, considering his above remark, and that he was wearing a rainbow bandana, which is the LGBT organizations bandana. I said to Dorian, “you are wearing the bandana.” Dorian quickly took it off and threw it across the room, and said, “my sister is a lesbian and I support the movement.” My response was, “that makes sense, I understand now.” I found Dorian’s free spirit a nice change from my normal day to day conversations.
My Website Review by the (2) College Students:
The two decided to check out this eccentric website, and looked it up on their, what appeared to be an iPad tablet. Jesse stated, “the way your websites slides on this tablet is awesome!” Dorian said, “yes, that is really nice.”Jesse laughed at the “Does Your Blog Suck?” post.
Jesse seemed more of a “hardy boys” type, and thinking of & missing his girlfriend. Awww young love, so exciting! Dorian seemed more liberal, and Jesse conservative. The two were complete opposite. They told me they have been best friends since they were little. Have no idea how two complete opposite types of personalities get along so well. Dorian, with his free spirit, is in tune with others around him. He seems to sense feelings more than Jesse. Jesse is an intellectual, Dorian seems more into others and has a high sensory on emotions and feelings (my opinions). Jesse is bold. Dorian is bold too, but Dorian is bold, and chooses his words carefully (as not to offend others most likely) as he seems to have high sensory perception.
Twilight Series Discussion:
Dorian continued to speak with me, asking me questions, me asking him questions, as he continued to stare at my chest. This is a few hours into the discussions, Jesse began to get bored, and retreated to his room, or to watch tv. Jesse did come back out and rejoin the conversation, after a short time. ”So, what are your thoughts on the new Twilight series?” Dorian asked. “I don’t really understand how a vampire would be able to ‘twinkle” in the sun, ” Dorion stated politely. The Twilight movies are a negative 25, on a 1-10 scale, in comparison to the books (my opinion). The Twilight book series is excellent, in my opinion, although the 3rd book seems a bit like soft porn, or whichever book in the series it is where the vampire marries the young woman, and they go on a honeymoon.Dorian retreated to bed, as he had to work today. Jesse and I continued our discussions into the morning hours. Needless to say, both young men and myself were exhausted from doing so much talking.
Let’s Keep in Touch:
Honestly, most talking (during a website interview) I have ever done in an evening. I intend to keep in touch with both (hopefully), and Dorian did send me a text message today. Cannot put the text on this page, as it was a little, lets just say,R rated. I laughed and smiled upon receiving Dorian’s text message.
Fur Coat Significance:
Liz finally drummed up the courage to ask, “why is this giant fur coat hanging here?“ Dorian responded, “my mother gave the coat to me.”
The subject of Dorian’s mother and the memorabilia(fur coat) seemed to bring on sudden sadness. The coat looked really warm, almost for an arctic like cold. Most likely was really expensive when first purchased. My eyes scanned the item, trying to take in every single detail to flash it to memory, almost like scanning an image into my laptop. Thoughts wondered through my mind of Dorian running his fingers through the long furs on the coat, and thinking of his mother. Memories, emotions, and pictures of people whom I loved came rushing into my mind looking at the details of the coat, people who abruptly left my life or have moved on to a better place. The coat had a special warmth about it, as I imagined his mother being very kind, loving, caring, and a warm heart, that held no boundaries of love for Dorion.
Rare Thoughts Rushed Through My Brain:
Eccentric thoughts rushed around in my brain, and hard not to say them outloud, as I had just discovered how much a coat holds hints of the inner core of the original owner. The owner who wore the coat for comfort and to get warm again from the cold for the long winters.Winter can sometimes seem endless as can grief, when grieving begins, and we cannot seem to grasp hold of anything, due to grief pushing the fog over our eyes, as a vail that we cannot ever remove.
People say grief can be resolved, I disagree. Have yet to meet a single person that is not still grieving over a loved one, even 30 years after the separation (including myself).
Quotes for Thought:
“coat that is worn on the outside shows the essence of the inside.”
“coat that is worn to protect our bodies from the elements, is often a parody of how we guard our hearts from love…as we do not wish for love to grow cold and become a victim of life’s never ending dark and icy winters. “

Hang out with people we do not like
Try to impress people we have never liked and never will like
Spend money to impress people we cannot stand
Avoid people they do like in public, if the person looks embarrassing or they are embarrassed to be seen with the person
Ignore serious injuries to avoid high medical bills
Bet on really stupid things, Americans will bet on anything, you name it Americans will place a bet
For example: Americans will bet on a sports team based on a color, just because that is their favorite color
Bet on sports, horse races etc. on credit with a “bookie” that they can never pay, the “bookie” eventually just takes the money out of their ass (physically hurts them)
Play the lottery, with their last $20.00
Borrow money from one of those check chasing places, but never open a savings account. They will borrow every week, then their entire paycheck goes to the check cashing place
Rent furniture or TV’s from a Rent to Own store, and pay a high amount each week, but never own the item(s)
Magic Tricks that they know may injure themselves severely
Celebrity impersonating – even though of a different race/nationality than the celebrity (look nothing like the celebrity)
Say the word “sucks” or “suck” all the time. For example: “This job sucks!”
Try to control everything, when we really are not in control of very many things
Make crazy ass low ball offers on items, such as: cars, items at yard sales, and even homes. We make the offers knowing they will not be accepted, but counter-offered with a higher bid on the item.
Fall (on purpose) on freshly mopped floors at restaurants or any other public place, and then sue the owner for injuries. They mostly win the money in court
Skateboarding tricks that we know will get us seriously injured, but we do it anyway
Bicycle tricks we know will hurt us severely, but do it just out of pure boredom
Physical fight over sporting events, even at little league games
Physically fight over sporting events, then become best buds after the fight
Teens will do whatever it takes to avoid gym class
Come up with a great invention and tell all of our friends, someone steals the invention, before it is copyrighted (cannot keep mouth shut about new inventions) Then, afterwards try to sue for the copyright
Sue for anything and everything. Believe McDonald’s was even sued recently for someone’s child being overweight, don’t know who won the case
Shoot T-shirts into the stands at sporting events from a large barreled gun
Shoot potatoes from a large barreled gun
Drink a boatload of beer at sporting events, knowing they have a long drive home
Drink beer at their child’s birthday parties, then drive their kids home
Gamble away their rent money, and then make up an excuse like “I didn’t know I would lose.” ”Thought for sure this bet was a sure win.”
Believe magic tricks are real
Believe Santa Claus is real
Believe the Easter Bunny is real
Believe the Tooth Fairy is real
Take a chain link necklace and put it up their nose, and pull it down through their mouth (this was huge in the 1990′s) (Gross but true)
Make excuses for anything and everything. For example: “I thought that’s what you said, I am sorry, I misunderstood.” ”I thought you said ___.” (to the boss or spouse)
Date a person for a long time knowing darn well (the first time they met) they will never marry them – ever
“You finally got all the attention you need to make it through the day.”
Yes, I watch those crazy cartoons on Adult Swim, think they are hysterical, even though highly offensive to every person in the world

Cannot stand to watch a single commercial. We Americans will pay whatever it takes not to EVER have to watch commercials by purchasing a DVR, Netflix or commercial free television channels.
Have more “stuff” than we need, but less cash than we need
Will do whatever it takes not to stand in any lines at the grocery store, amusement parks, theatre, etc. We will pay NOT to have to wait in a line.
Go to the emergency room for non-emergency related health issues. Why? It is law here that the hospital emergency rooms have to treat any patiient who walks into the emergency room.
(This is law in my state unsure about the rest of the nation)
Make plans and cancel at the last minute, knowing in our minds, we were going to cancel when we made the plans, the very minute the plans were spoke into existence.
Do whatever it takes to make work easier by inventing something or a new idea that streamlines a process

The above is not me, just odd shit I noticed about Americans. Well, I do say “dude” too much, that’s the only sentence above that explains anything about me.
Wanted to give people in other countries a few tidbits of humor about life in America.

Question for discussion A: Why are the pharmaceutical companies trying to neutralize the “leaders” or “warriors” of society?
Question for discussion B: Children and teens (naturally aggressive) are being “doped” up in the United States on Ritalin and Adderal. Why?
“The Warrior Gene” determines if a person will be a leader or a follower. The pharmaceutical companies are prescribing anti-aggression drugs to children, teens, and adults in America who carry the warrior gene. You also might want to take a look at the stats and sources at the bottom of this post, the number of children on prescription drugs in America is crazy.
Leadership requires the mastered skills of hard work, aggression, conflict resolution, energy, and common sense. Many people who are born with the “Warrior Gene” are taking antidepressants, Ritalin or Adderal to calm their aggressive personality. The personality they were born with, this aggression is what gives the person the natural abilities of a “warrior” and a great leader. I have never heard of a single historical figure that did not have some type of leadership skills, and aggression needed to be successful.
The “warrior gene” naturally enhances aggressive behavior and decision-making skills. The gene allows a person to make snap decisions, think in stressful situations, and lead others without hesitation. The gene has been the subject of much controversy. People who have this gene have no easy lifestyle it seems, and have a high conflict rate in their life. The “warriors” are more likely to be prescribed drugs in the United States to inhibit their “warrior” nature.
Society needs Warriors. The warrior or the aggressors are an important part of any society. The prescription drugs are impairing the natural-born leadership skills of people who carry the warrior gene, people who would have grown up to be a major asset to society.
For example: person with the “warrior” gene would most likely become the CEO of a large company, as they are born with a natural talent to lead people. These people often have strength, courage, confidence, and natural-born charisma.
Hmmm….What are the stats on kids on whose parents have them on crazy a*ss prescription meds in the United States? Click Here to find out:
