This is a warning … this post will be all over the place with no rhyme or reason or attempt at organization. That is why, folks, it is titled, “Random Update”.
I get a lot of emails from readers, many of them from nice, shy, people who are hesitant to leave me notes in the “comments” section in case an ax murderer is reading my comments and tracks them down. By the way, that can’t happen … okay? It really is safe to leave a comment in the comment section because no one can access anything other than your name and you can always leave a fake name if you want. I’m the only one who sees your email address and I promise I’m not a stalker. I don’t even have the time to stalk you if you are George Clooney and you wish I would. (Because we all know George is wishing I would stalk him! He is also, by the way, waiting for me to strip his clothes off, lounge on his bed in my lingerie, and … uh, where was I?)
Anyway, people email me a lot and I am choosing today to get back to you and address some open ended subjects. I did say today is all about the word “random” didn’t I? Yes, I did ….
First of all, I have yet to hear from Mr. Dunlop. Shocking, isn’t it? I would like to say this is because Mr. Dunlop has no idea I would love to chat with him, but I don’t believe this is the case. “Why is that, Twenty Four At Heart?” you ask. The morning of my post regarding Mr. Dunlop, I got a very nice email from a reader who, it turns out, is neighbors with Mr. Dunlop. I did not, by the way, have any idea I had a reader who was his neighbor when I wrote that post.
She seems to think
Mr. Dunlop Scott might not come after me with lawyers in tow, so she hit the nice little green “share” button at the end of my post which allowed her to email my post directly to the Dunlop’s. One problem? She only had MRS. Dunlop’s email address. So whether or not MRS. Dunlop shared it with MR. Dunlop is unknown. She might, just possibly, have been offended by the fact that I mentioned something about being “beneath” her husband. Jeez, I hope these people have a sense of humor! And Scott? I’m still waiting for that interview, it’ll be fun, I promise!
New update just in at publishing time! I may not have heard from Scott, but the Seen On TV website has picked up my blog post on Mr. Dunlop. I have no idea how long you will be able to find it on their site, and I have no idea how they found it. Such are the wonders of modern technology! Nonetheless, I imagine this is Twenty Four At Heart’s five minutes of fame. Thank you to Mr. Dunlop and the TV show The Real Housewives of Orange County for providing Twenty Four At Heart five minutes in the spotlight. And now back to the original post ….
For the readers who are interested in more “hot guy on the beach” pictures, I am sorry I have let you down. I hope to get a few more hot beach guy photos for you soon, but I have been insanely busy the last few weeks. Unfortunately, that means I have not had a lot of beach time. How’s this photo instead?
Thank you Google Images for “Hot Army Guy”. My apologies to my straight, male readers.
Next subject: Mooning the Train. No, I was not with my girlfriend when she mooned the train this year. Yes, I do plan to be there next year. You are all welcome to join me. As for my friend who works in the television industry and mentioned the possibility of televising the event on ESPN next year … let me say this. If anyone puts my ass on ESPN they will cease being a friend for all eternity. My ass? Not for prime time!
Next topic. No, I am not rich and, no, I do not live in Money Town. I am just a regular every day person who happens to live in the nearby vicinity of Money Town. I also enjoy making fun of all the rich folks. I don’t think they mind … much.
In addition, a reader asked why I live in Orange County. The answer is, despite the hilarious idiosyncrasies of this place, it is home. I love it and I don’t know if I could ever be happy living outside of Southern California. The beach lifestyle is a part of who I am.
Change of topic, again. Yes, I am over my bitchy mood, thank you very much for caring. And yes, I do think I realized what was bothering me. It took a few days to figure it out, a little self-analysis, and then suddenly a light bulb went on and I thought, “That’s it!” There has been a lot going on recently to stir up some painful memories and I think, without initially realizing it, things were getting to me. Now that I know what’s causing the feelings I’m working on dealing with it. How’s that for psycho-babble? And I don’t even have a shrink (yet).
If you want to know more about that particular topic come back on July 30th. I’ve already written the post which will publish that day. Writing helps me deal with life, and yes, I cried while I wrote about the particular topic you’ll read on that day. In any case, my bitch reflex is now in check.
Yes, you were all correct! I should have bought Wire Man. Briefcase has been gone a ton. Where’s a man with a hammer when you need one? Not to mention, Wire Man might be able to hammer out any of my remaining bitchiness. Did I just
say write that?
I’ll give you more random updates sometime soon. If you have a question, or topic, you’d like to see addressed just leave a comment or send me an email. I am behind on responding to emails, but I’m reading every single comment and email I get. I’d also like to thank all of you again for reading. I have been blown away lately at the number of you hanging around here. I also get an absolute thrill seeing all the different countries that now have Twenty Four At Heart readers. We’ve got a great group!
I hope everyone has a nice weekend and I’ll have another post for you on Monday.
