Well, Of Course...

So, this is the horoscope that greeted me today... I'm a Virgo you know, so you might have gotten it too...

A big-hearted angel could enter your life now, bringing love, a business opportunity or a chance to travel. Receiving a generous gift is another possible manifestation of the wonderful Venus-Jupiter conjunction falling in your 7th House of Partners. Either way you're likely to be pleasantly surprised, assuming that you are able to accept what is being offered to you at this time.

I think my favorite part is the last line, "assuming that you are able to accept what is being offered to you at this time". It's kinda been proven recently that I know I am not... which is just fucking perfect considering I spend most of my youthful, overly-romantic days wishing on stars, eye lashes (mine or those of my friends and lovers) teeth for the tooth fairy and birthday candles, looking for love. 

More specifically, true love. I can't ever deny that I'm not a hopeless romantic. Or maybe I watch too many John Hughes movies in my younger, wilder days. Or we never really know what we want. Or maybe John Lennon can't always be right. 

Whatever the reason, I probably won't stop wishing for love 

...but I'm not the only one.

Can the Real Shelby Thompson Please Stand Up?

Wow. I've nearly been defamed, AGAIN. The infamous other Shelby Thompson on gmail not only still hates me, but is a total bitch. And she has this as her signature on email:

"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it."  -William A. Ward

I mean, SHUT UP. She tried to use a completely basic email address when hello, did she think she was the only Shelby Thompson on earth who would use gmail?!? What a dumb jerk. She can't handle an email invite to wine night? A string of emails requesting advise on a bride's maid dress? What is she, jealous of my life? I even wrote her once to apologize for the confusion and she not only didn't write me back, but answered another email to the chain something like this:

ALL - Please remove me from your email contacts.  I do not know any of you and will continue to mark any of these emails as spam.  Thanks.


Thanks to the people who know me, and like me - the REAL Shelby Thompson, the other one is soon to really know what SPAM is. (Insert evil laugh here).
