R.I.P George Carlin...

Legendary comedian George Carlin, perhaps most famous for his skit “Seven Words You Can Never Say on TV,” dies at 71. He succumbed to heart failure.

My cousin turned me on to George Carlin, and I really liked him simply because he said anything he wanted to say, plus he was a very sharp man. It is unfortunate to see one of the 'realist' comics ever to go. Funny thing is I was just talking about him on Saturday night, wondering what he was going to say about the election. Now I guess his fans will never know. Research him for yourselves and watch some of his vids. I think some of you might like him.

Reader Submission...

One of my readers emailed me this scenerio. She asked me to post it on here so she could get advice from you guys about this situation. So help your fellow reader out.

I have been an unhappily married woman for 10yrs. My husband and I are unhappy due to a previous affair he had in the beginning of our marriage. I chose to stay in the marriage and try to make it work. We act more as 'roommates' instead of husband and wife, never spend together, and most of all, he is not sexually active with me.

Recently I met a guy who I became intimate with. We have known each other for about 2months. He does everything my husband doesn't do and he makes me feel cared about. Something else my husband doesn't do. He lives far enough were I won't get caught by anyone. Initially, we started having sex at hotels, and then I began to go to his home. Lately, I have been spending the night with him whenever the opportunity presented itself, of course lying to my husband about my whereabouts.

The guy I have been seeing tells me he loves me all the time, especially when we are intimate. When he first told me he ‘loved’ me I felt scared. I felt like he was full of sh*t. At first I thought it was his game in order to get me to leave my husband. Then I realized that he appeared to mean it and wanted me to tell him I loved him too. But I don't, and I can't understand why he tells me that. Unfortunately, I have gotten emotionally caught up and believe this man might love me although that is hard to believe.

My question is why would he tell me he loves me if he knows I have a husband, I don't love him, and he is already having sex with me?

In your response please don't forget to answer the reader's question.

Daddy Dearest...

Happy Father's Day to all the dads and especially the single fathers. There have been a few men that have played father figure roles during different periods of my life and I love them all. But I want to tell you all a little bit about my dad.

You know my dad is a pretty cool dude. He is 6'5, still wears a curl in 2008,and 65yrs old, so you can't help but see him. I appreciate my dad more now than I did when I was younger for his advice, time, and energy he puts into me. We are identical twins according to some people. All my life I heard "guurrrlll you look just like your daddy." There were times when my mother and friends would say they I sound like my dad because I say some of the same things he would. Many women aren't privilege enough to have their fathers around, but I do and I love that guy. Things haven’t always been great with us, but when you can forgive a person, its amazing the relationships that can blossom.

I haven't always been around my dad, but I can honestly say he has always done his best to be there for me. From kindergarten to 8th grade my father picked me up from school everyday despite my parents being divorced. He has always told me I was brilliant,sneaky,pretty,and his 'big baby girl.' He picked me up and I would be with him until my mother got off work. Growing up he had all the guys in the neighborhood scared but they respected him. All my life my dad has tried to prepare my sister and me for life. He taught me lessons that didn't necessarily apply until later on in life. He always taught me about understanding people, being ‘street smart’, and the importance of education. He is not only there for me, but also for my friends. He takes his time to talk to them as though they were his children.

One thing I can say about my dad is that he is always right, and that drives me crazy! Almost everyone I know has met my father at some point in my life. I could go on and on about my father, simply because he is a good father. It never occurred to me how blessed I am to still have my dad until a few people I know have lost their dads. One thing I can count on is that my dad will call me everyday at least twice a day. Although I can't stand when he ask me a lot of questions, I understand that it is only because he cares and wants the best for me. It drives him crazy for me to be so far away but he trust God and knows that I will be fine.

I love my dad, and thank God for still allowing him to be around. If you still have your father around take time to talk to him, even if he hasn’t always been the best dad. Let the past go and try to build a future with him. It makes a difference in your life when you have your father. You never know how long he will be around. Happy Father's Day Daddy.

Writer's Block...

Hey Folks...
I have been trying to blog for the past couple of weeks, while I have been home in Dallas. Unfortunately, nothing has seem to come out on the paper.I have writers block bad because, I haven't even been able to write in my journal. I need something to get me going again. So I ask my readers to please bare with me, until I get my mojo back.

Well at least I can tell you guys what I have been up too lately.

-I have been eating, sleeping, and enjoying the sun. I haven't worked out at all. But I love it.
-I have been going to church...can I get an AMEN on that please.
-I am at my favorite place the HouseofHealing.
-I got my tooth pulled and I wanted to kill the dentist. But I took alot of drugs and went to my dads house and he took care of me.
-I found out some new interesting things about some of my friends.
-I spent way too much money and have avoided looking at my bank
-I was in one of my close friends wedding and saw people I have seen in years and ones who have known me since I was a baby. That was a really great time, although I worked so hard as a hostess I got a blister on my foot. But it was all worth it to see my friend happy.
-My other good friend got engaged and yes I am a bridesmaid. We went looking for dresses and hung out which was great since we haven't seen each other in forever.
-My mom, sister, and I hung out that was too much fun.
-Did I mention I am eating whatever I want and loving it.
-I brought a really cute dress that I love.
-I have went out a couple times. One time I partied a little to
-I saw Sex in the that movie.
-Still coping with our family loss but trusting God as my grandma says.

That's pretty much it. I am headed back to Chicago soon to get back on the grind and party with my girl for her graduation. Hopefully between now and then I can come up with a new blog.

Also, feel free to give me any suggestions for blog topics.

Until next time on "The Journey of Ms. Devereaux"
