Numberless Blog: AIDS Walk Info....

Please sponsor me for AIDS Walk New York!


I'm going to walk to raise money on May 16, 2010.  I don't want to fill your head with all the statistics.  Unless you've lived under a rock for the past 25 years, you know that AIDS is an epidemic.  Yes, I said epidemic!  It has not gone anywhere.  You may just hear about it once a year, but trust me.  Google AIDS, and see what you've missed.
I appreciate your help.  If you need assistance with the link below or any questions at all, please feel free to contact me. If I don't have an answer right away, I'll be sure to get back to you.  If you need to respond to this blog, please put AIDS WALK in the subject line, so that I can give your note immediate attention. 

Thank you for supporting AIDS Walk New York and for helping to put an end to this epidemic.

61st Tuesday/Monday Cloaked in the Mystery of Tuesday

Dear Readers,

Dearest Readers,

Dearest Most Greatest Readers,

However it suits you, its for you. Dear New Subscribers, Latina and Besos0115, thank you for subscribing. I must say, it was quite thrilling to sign on today and see all the extra icons. I know that there can be anonymous Readers and I love you too, but I commend my public readers (pubic, LOL!, NEVER GETS OLD) for being so out and proud. There is alot to cover today, so I will probably be back and forth. Let's consider this a 8hr blog...seeing as I will be back and forth over the next 8hrs.

I like that. First and foremost, I want to extend my sincere condolences to a Dear Reader who suffered a loss quite recently. You know who you are, you are loved, you are prayed for and you know how to reach me.

Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul perishes like the body, answer that the flower withers, but the seed remains.
Kahlil Gibran

In my opinion, in the face of loss, its perfectly OK to grieve however you feel necessary. I think that you should never count down the days to the end of grieving, rather look forward to the days of laughter and sweet memories. I have never stopped thinking about the people that I have lost, rather they are constantly with me. My love for them is intensified, as it has added to me, as if I have grown from their passing.

I need a moment.

LolaDate: 9:56 AM

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack! OK, next order of business.

We are walking to raise money for Aids research and so forth on May 16, 2010. Above you will find the link that you can paste into your browser to support this. Now Dear Readers, this is not the first time I've walked for charity, but this is the first time I'm walking as a Blogger. For that reason, I'm asking you to please donate. If not to me, to someone else. If you don't feel like parting with your own money, do one better...raise money and walk. Really, I cannot tell you how great it will feel. I look forward to these walks, and truly if you decide to support me, I will not let you down. I would be HONORED to say the least to walk in the name of my Dear Readers. Even $1 counts. I am always grateful. Now, for the grease. I'm going to look carefully for my Dear Readers on my donation page. I'm so excited. I am not demanding you donate, but the next time you stand on line at McDKingCastleBell, I want you to ask yourself, do you really need that WhopperNuggetBaconTostada or what? I can tell you that you DO NOT. Donate that cash, your body will thank you.

This is a nice way to lead into our next topic which would be MY JOURNEY INTO A MEAT FREE LIFE. Yes. I am going for it. I started yesterday. I am really trying to eliminate meat from my life. Alright, I have yet to watch Food, Inc and I swear its on my agenda, but I already know that meat is not the best for my body. Here are the reasons, besides the fact that My Lovely has given it up......

1. There is no medical evidence that I NEED to consume red meat or even poultry to live a happy, healthy life.
2. There are soooo many meat and poultry free meals to enjoy.
3. As an animal lover, I feel like a PHONY when I chow down on creatures that were treated inhumanly.
4. This may just work great in my Journey To Size 8.
5. Seafood. Need I say more?

I have loads of reading to do to come up with the right diet. This week I am meat and poultry free, just to see how I like it. I don't intend YET to eliminate poultry, because I love chickens, hens and turkeys. What I did do, was go out and buy chicken that was not feed crap, pumped full of steroids and then slain in the most awful way. I don't know that I can go cold turkey, pun intended, on my feathered friends. I just much rather daydream about the bird on my plate living such a fabulous life that he was actually eager to end up next to my wheat berries and spinach.

I'm also bringing in more organic options to my kitchen. Little by little, I will keep you guys updated. Yesterday for my first day, I ate well and didn't even miss it.

I said in my last blog that I would update you on my Cardio Boxing with the Wii. So far, its fine, but honestly I would be remiss if I neglected to mention that I purchased THE GREATEST WORKOUT GAME EVER, JUST DANCE! Whoa. Readers, when I say fun, I mean FUN. I am pretty sure its because I can't really dance, but when I put that game's like American Bandstand for the common blogger. I love it. Not only is it great fun, you (or at least I do) work up a sweat.

I'm looking forward to playing with My Lovely tonight. It feels so good to be in love with someone that you can be an ass with. She is the best. If you are in love with someone that you have to "be" a certain way with, you are wasting your time, not to mention lying. Let me clarify: there are somethings that I know My Lovely likes, so yes, I have made some positive changes in my life--but not to the point that I find impossible. I know that there are things that she would love to see changed, but at the end of the day, I'm still Lola. She loves me for who I am and who I am able to be. Whew. That was almost a disclaimer.

Hey! Besos0115, who are you? I am not asking your identity (maybe) but out of all my Dear Readers that have publicly subscribed, I don't know who you are. You are a creature of mystery, intrigue and I pray not deceit! Anyhow, you know how I am about privacy, so I respect you. I do believe that you must be in my circle of friends, so I will be watching carefully to see if YOU say anything to incriminate yourself. I'm sorry, but ever since I fell off watching Lost, I've been hungry for a mystery.

Thanks for being here.

In other Dear Reader News, it has come to my attention that one of you has shaved your head! I must say that I will miss your locs, but you are so beautiful, I am excited to see you in your updated look. I've seen your hair short before, but I hear that its Short SHORT. Yaaaaa you! I've always been tempted to loc my hair, but I really, truly lack the commitment. As far as going as low as Short SHORT, I'm not there yet. I hope I see you soon, if not in person like God intended, I'd settle for via text....please.

Dear Readers, its 11:09 AM and I think I must go. It's been great catching up and WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, I HAVE NOT STARTED DRIVING SCHOOL YET, NOR HAVE I BEEN BEHIND THE WHEEL, I thought you might be wondering, I'm getting there. Vroom vroom!

You get me, that's why I love you,


Now I have to run this through editing--what you thought I just wrote and posted all willy-nilly, nope....Lola don't play that.

58th Tuesday, Ok..its Thursday...


Vroom! Vroom! Who got the keys to my Beemer? That's right, Dear Readers..I'm officially a Learner! All this good news is supposed to distract you from the fact that we last spoke on March 17. You are like an old friend, even if we don't speak everyday, it's always easy to catch up.

So March 26 was my last day of work. I bet you are trying to guess if I work for a city agency that gets Spring Break. Guess all you want, I've told you before Dear Readers, a killer could be amoung us and I don't want to give too much away. Yet. Heh. Heh.

On my last day of vacation, I set the clock (read: cell phone) nice and early to go the DMV. I called 311 that day to find out if I could obtain my permit at the DMV closest to my home. Yes, yes..Dear Readers, you are all Sherlock Holmes, yes, 311 is the information number in New York, which yes, means that I am a New Yorker. Ok?? Sometimes you seem obsessed. Anyway..311 was a waste because she gave me the wrong information-leading me to the wrong location. From the wrong location I went to the right location, where I was told that I didn't have enough documentation.

Riddle me this: If I had a NYS identification, which I could only obtain with my birth certificate in the first place, why the hell would I need my birth certificate as a form of identification? What kind of chicken before the egg ish is that?

I was going to give up. I'm quite fond of giving up, if you can't gather that from my "weekly" blogging. However I spoke to my very good friend and she gave me a pep talk.

Oh..on the subject of friends which has little/nothing to do with this blog...assuming you all have friends, you know that there are many types of friends, but the two polar opposites are the GoForIt Friend and the WhyBotherAnyway Friend. The GoForIt Friend can see the good in everything and is always in your corner. She is the friend, who though she may be going through her own ish, she won't let her problems pollute her mood to the point that she becomes the WhyBotherAnyway Friend. The WhyBotherAnyway Friend is so deep in her own waaa waaa that she does not have time to give you a pep talk, only the time to get a pep talk from you that in the long run she won't even care about. I think my sentences are kind of run on, but if I am a Friend In Your Head, you should be able to follow me. I am the GoForIt Friend, though sometimes I find myself treading toward WhyBotherAnyway. All I'm saying is, its good that I spoke to my GoForIt on Tuesday because now I


I'm really looking forward to driving. That day I went all the way back home, picked up my certificate and carried my arse all the way back. Truly the experience took my whole last day of vacation, but it was such a great way to end vacation. Today I am probably going to go check out a school so I can get on the road.

Beep! Beep!

I'm such a mild person, I can't really imagine using my horn, unless I'm in severe danger. It would be so cool if I could record my horn tone, similar to my cell phone. Then I could say whatever I want in a soothing, pleasing tone.






What other fabulous things did I accomplish? Oh shoot..I nearly forgot. Over the break I decided to purchase a Wii Fit with a balance board. Alas, it was always sold out, and since I am QUEEN OF PLAN B, I instead went with Gold's Cardio Workout for the Wii. I just picked it up yesterday. So far, so good. I honestly did not expect this much and I'm only on basic training. For some reason, I thought boxing just meant punching at the screen to hit your target. No one told me that I would also have to bounce back and forth. Well. It was a funny sight. If I was not so particular about my secret covert in the darkness never in the light identity, I would post a video. I'm telling you, Dear Readers, funny stuff.

In any case, I'm going to stick to it. I am looking forward to getting home this evening and getting through basic training. Once I earn cash I can buy my mii cute outfits and even a panda bear. Oh shoot! I can even pick different music to work out to and my workout studio. It's going down!

My WondaSon kept telling me to punch like I was in a real fight-duh, like I have any prior experience fighting. I tease that I used to belong to a gang, but that joke gets real old, real fast.

Lawdy is it 10am already? I think its time for me to walk around with a clipboard and look at people.

I will let you know how my training goes....boxing AND driving...Vroom Vroom Pow!

You get me, that's why I love you.
