What Women Want

Sex and the Septuagenarians By Lakshmi ChaudhryWhen I grow up, I want to be old. Old as in proudly, imperiously fat like my grandmother, free from the need to do “something” or be “somebody,” and definitively, unmistakably, not sexy.

According to her this is the book NOT TO BUY

Comments Anyone ?

And what about that Jamie ! Actress Jamie Lee Curtis has once again decided to bare her soul -- and body -- to convince women that they will be their most beautiful if they take care of their bodies and age naturally. The star will help celebrate her 50th birthday by posing topless on the cover of AARP The Magazine.

And poor Priscilla, whom I truly LOVE - Is it worth it ?

Is He a Keeper ? Know the Signs

How to know if he's a keeper

How to know if he's cheating

For all those men who say, Why buy a cow when you can get milk for free. Here's an update for you: Nowadays, 80% of women are against marriage, WHY? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage.


A Word to the WiseMen


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says "Thanks a lot" - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say "you're welcome" ... that will bring on a "whatever").

(8) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F@!K YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking "What's wrong?" For the woman's response refer to # 3.

* Share this with the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can
avoid if they remember the terminology

The Games People Play in New Relationships.......

Do NOT wait for the phone to ring. Plan your
day, week or whatever IF YOU HAVEN'T heard
from the new Beloved. Staring at your cell phone
waiting for THE call is insecure. Confidence is
sexy. You are a busy, important person.
When he calls, then make your plan with him....
NOT FOR HIM!!!!! He will go crazy for you.
Relax; if he doesn't call, it means he doesn't
want to; otherwise he would. Now it doesn't mean
he doesn't want to see you. IT MEANS HE JUST
DOESN'T WANT TO CALL exactly when you think
he should. It's all about expectations. If he "loves"
you just then, he has fun with you; chances are he'll
want to develop a deeper relationship. As this happens,
change your ideas of WHAT HE SHOULD DO. That's
where the trouble starts.
NEVER, NEVER, say this, "Why didn't you call?"
It is the kiss of the beginning of the end of the
relationship. GOT IT ?????

The Games People Play in New Relationships

For today's daily dose of relationship medicine,

For today's daily dose of relationship medicine,
Sandy Patsy's got the answer:
GIVE IT UP!!! Whatever it is you are disagreeing
about, what is the point? Is it a little thing; ie:
taking out the trash?
Or is it "You slept with whoooooo????"
Then you've got something to say.
If it's the trash & shit, FORGET ABOUT IT !!!!!
Those little things ARE NOT WORTH IT.
The it becomes about power. The female of
the pair must always acquiesce. Always?

Actual factual observations of people in their element.

From my observations, I learn how not to be.

CA: When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I started writing poetically at about the 6th grade.

CA: Who or what was your inspiration for writing?

My inspiration for Power of P. grew out of my need for emotional


CA: What is your work schedule like when you're writing? Crazy.

CA: Your book is about to be sent into the reader world, what is one word that describes how you feel?

Work at my regular job.

CA: How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

One book. The only one, of course

CA: Do you tend to base your characters on real people or are they totally from your imagination?

We will write another book, just for the pure
pleasure of the experience.
CA: How can a reader contact you or purchase your books?

Purchase a book on line from sandyellenpatsy@aol.com

writing the book with her, it became the funnest part
of the day!
We are still having fun with it.
