THE FEAR OF BEING LOVED

I trust that you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was - uhm - dramatic, fun, interesting and sad. My weekend activities will lead into what I want to talk about in this post.

Fear of being loved can make someone do dumb things. I'm the first to cry nonjudgmental foul at the people who cheat, because I don't agree with that kind of deception. I'd say things like "that's the dumbass move of the year" or "he has to be the biggest idiot to cheat on (insert rich and famous gorgeous Hollywood actress here)". Not only the men are guilty my good folks. I met someone for the first time who admits that she fears being loved. She lied to her significant other about her whereabouts on the weekend and spent it partying up with some people who may or may not have her best interests at heart. She said that she didn't cheat and can't even say the reason she lied. When I heard the story I felt overwhelmed.
I hope this couple can overcome this little stick in the road of their relationship.

A DRY 2011

Happy New Year to one and all!!

I can tell that this will be one of my dryest years in Mexico - I'm referring to my alcohol intake my dear friends and visitors.

I can't predict the future but it is quite possible that in my case, the behaviour for the last week of 2010 will be similar to that of the first part of 2011. I didn't drink a sip of alcohol on Christmas Day (and I like beer dammit), I only had two beers and a Skyy Vodka cosmo on New Year's Eve and three beers on New Year's Day, and that for me my fellow sippers, is taking it easy.

I could have easily gotten tipsy on the 31st and 1st, but I chose not to. "Evita el exceso" is what they put on the bottom of many Mexican advertisement. My grandma would say: "too much of one thing is striking good for nothing". I think it's pretty accurate translation of that Spanish quote.
