Okay guys, this is not a male bashing blog........ Well not completely. That's not something I normally do. And if it comes across that way, well just figure out which catagory you fit into and you'll know whether I mean you or not.

Yesterday I got a chance to go for a walk in the rain. Actually twice. Yeah, finally, lucky us. Last night was while we had a tornado warning and the rain was wonderful, so I took that chance and walked. The first time was very early in the morning, before it was actually daylight. Because the last few nights I seem to be getting even less sleep than usual......
As I was walking, feeling the rain wash over me and trying to clear my mind, something caught my attention at the edge of the sidewalk. Well it actually kinda startled me for a second. I stopped and wiped my eyes trying to see clearly. Looking closer, it was a frog, no maybe it was a toad. Well at that moment I couldn't really tell for sure. So I paid no more attention to it and continued on my walk. No, I did not poke it with the umbrella I was carrying but not using. But if it was a toad, maybe I should have....Don't get pissy with me, I'm not normally a mean person and I don't normally hurt creatures but it's been a really bad week.
However that four legged hoppy thing did get me to thinking. So much for trying to clear my mind.

Just as I wasn't able to tell right then which this little creature was, it's the same way with men. You know that old saying about kissing a frog and turning him into a prince? Well that's what I mean... They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. Okay fair enough, I guess. BUT, what happens when you aren't sure whether he's a frog or a toad? The frog could be your prince. The one you have always dreamed of. Complete with the happily ever after fairy tale ending. If you haven't had the week I have and still believe in that sorta thing.
However, what if he's just a toad, mistaken as a frog? Then what do you get besides disappointment and --if old tales are correct--warts where the nasty little thing peed on you? All because you wanted to find that one prince, that happiness that you so desire, that love like no other. Nasty, embarrassing warts that need to be gotten rid of before they spread.
So is it easier to tell the difference between a frog and a toad, or between a man who is for real and one who is just a toad in a human body?
Sometimes they look real similar. Especially when the sun is not out, it's raining in your world and your mind is somewhere else. The real problem is that these toads in human bodies can cause way more damage then just normal toads. They can somehow infect your heart with a fungus called heartache. And the doctors can't give you anything for it.
So ladies, just because it appears he may be that prince, and he happens to hop right into your life startling you enough to make you laugh, doesn't mean you aren't going to get warts............ and sometimes they are pretty damn painful to remove. So be careful when you are looking through all the frogs for your one true prince. Make sure it's at least a frog you kiss.

To any of the guys that I may have offended, at least I didn't suggest making frog stew or deep fried frog legs if it didn't work out.......... I'm kidding. I know there are quite a few really good guys on here. I have the pleasure of being able to call a few of them my friend. Actually I got a virtual gift of wildflowers from one such person late last night. Ironically he didn't even know wild flowers are my favorite. All the card said was smile, and I did. His timing was more perfect than he can imagine and very much appreciated. So to the good frogs out there , thank you.

DISCLAIMER: This was only a blog. I am not admitting to kissing a frog or a toad. It was not my intention to call anyone either. I am only admitting to some really nice walks in the pouring rain. I'm just sayin'.

Sometimes we have to kiss a lot of frogs to find our prince? Sometimes he is actually a toad? Then what the fuck do we keep kissing them for? Oh Yea The Hope he is the Frog for us. Walking in the rain is good for the soul, great for the hair, and gives you a bigger chance of getting pneumonia.

In the grand scheme of all things going on, that didn't seem to be even a consideration. And it was well worth it.

CAN I DO IT NOW TREAS?
Absolutely Not...Someone please restrain that woman. Just remember to make it fun.
Only road trip going on is I think I am heading for an ocean sometime this month, for a couple days. They say when you stand next to the ocean you lose track of your problems. Does that mean they go away, or you drown the people that create them? I've just always wondered........

Frogs And Princes

~ Natasha Bedingfield


The in and out of dating got me all confused
I built up expectations and I'm feeling used
Seems that everybody's into fast food,
Everybody's into quick
I want some one to take the time fine dining not rushing

Now it's nearly 7:30, I'm slipping on a dress
I keep my fingers crossed, you're not like all the rest,
So when you come to pick me up come right to my door
Don't stay in your car and beep beep the horn

Baby I'm a hopeless romantic
You pick the sounds for the background to our drive into town
Baby don't be one of the traffic
Had too many nights with the wrong guys
Caught me at red lights

Tell me how many frogs do I have to kiss
Before I find my prince, before I find my prince
All you girls that are going through this
Tell 'em how it is, tell 'em how it is

Pull up to a premire, red carpet good
You take my coat, get my chair, like I hoped you would
You're funny and your flirting is really working for me
But where it goes from here
Better wait and see

Baby I'm a hopeless romantic
You pick the view to kiss to
Make me go ooh ooh
And baby it'll all turn out tragic
And you'll push for more
Back at my front door
More than I'm ready for

Tell me how many frogs do I have to kiss
Before I find my prince, before I find my prince
All you girls that are going through this
Tell 'em how it is, tell 'em how it is

Tell me how many frogs do I have to kiss
Before I find my prince, before I find my prince
All you girls that are going through this
Tell 'em how it is, tell 'em how it is

You gotta tip the waiter, that's how it works
You cant skip the starter and go straight to desert
You've gotta pop the cork before you taste the wine

Is woah,
We get hooked up but the shame is
Too much connection followed by rejections
Gonna hurt a girl 'til she learns her lesson

Tell me how many frogs do I have to kiss
Before I find my prince, before I find my prince
All you girls that are going through this
Tell 'em how it is, tell 'em how it is

Tell me how many frogs do I have to kiss
Before I find my prince, before I find my prince
All you girls that are going through this
Tell 'em how it is, tell 'em how it is

Oh, yeah yeah

They say when you stand next to the ocean you lose track of your problems. Does that mean they go away, or you drown the people that create them?
That all depends on how many tropical drinks with lots of rum or tequila that we've had first!!! Enough that our problems disappear? or enough to make the people that caused our problems disappear ?

A very heart felt writing. Careful you must be to avoid the toads. To me it appears you have been hurt. For you I hope happy times with a new love and wildfowers.
You will find your frog soon. Kiss him well casuallylooking.

No new love, the special man who sent me the flowers is a very dear friend trying to cheer my day.
I'm not looking for a frog, or anything else. I quit believing in fairy tales............
But thanks for the kind words anyway......

One day a beautiful Princes was walking through the forest when she came upon a frog sitting in the path. The frog spoke to her and said: "I'm not really a frog. I am a price who was turned into a frog by a wicked witch. If you kiss me, I will turn back into a price and we will live happily ever after in my castle where you will keep it clean so that we might entertain our guests, cook all my meals, and have lots of kids to continue the Royal bloodline."
That night, as the Princess dined on frog legs, she thought... I don't THINK so.
