Super Bowl XLV

Sunday, February 6, 2011 is the Super Bowl Sunday, the day of Super Bowl XLV. It’s an American tradition of sorts and one of the larger “party days” of the year – and, oh yeah, it’s a pretty big sporting event too. 😉

This year it’s the Green Bay Packers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, two solid teams with a lot to offer.

Green Bay Packers

Pittsburgh Steelers

So who do you think is going to win Sunday?

Or do you even care, given the quality of the field? I’m fairly sure that I don’t – but I really only watch the game for the commercials most years.

    Hi Jonolan:

    It’s Rhea. 🙂 I was able to get online today to see if my old blog was still around! (Long story for the absence, and I don’t have that long, unfortunately.) Anyway, I felt bad about sending you a message a while back and then never getting back to you. I sent it from my phone, which got shut off shortly thereafter, and I wasn’t able to get any word to you about it until now. Truly sorry.

    I should have mentioned when I sent the note…my new haunt is now the Pacific Northwest, specifically Portland, OR/Vancouver, WA. (It’s been a crazy two-year shuffle from coast to coast). I appreciated your response so much, and truly felt bad about not being able to get back to you. I hoped I wasn’t overstepping my bounds in the first place. I can’t explain why, of everything that came to mind, I thought of contacting you. I just remembered reading about your philosophy and approach to life on your blog and being struck with your integrity, and you seem like a person who has the ability and focus to project a high degree of power and influence (specifically protection) into this world, even from a distance. So I also should’ve explained when I sent that note…I wasn’t asking for any concrete or material help, exactly, but more just…I don’t know exactly…I can’t put it into words. I just know I had a really clear thought about you after trying every other possible source I could think of in my life for some help. I don’t know a whole lot about you, but I was (am) desparate enough to lay down some pride and ask even unlikely or non-traditional sources. So anyway…hope I wasn’t too rude in dropping in out of the blue and then disappearing again. Horrible online etiquitte, I know. And I hope you didn’t go to any trouble waiting around for my slow self to get back to you after so long.

    I am working on getting internet back in my life, and really hope to have it within the week. So I hope to be checking in and saying hello more often. I hope all is well with you, and thanks again….

    Take care,

    It’s not a problem, Rhea. Do what you need to do to get yourself sorted out and stay in touch as and how you can.

    I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers and, perhaps, I can even manage to call in some of my Pacific Northwest resources, if you need more direct assistance in getting back on your feet.

    Hi Jonolan:

    A big thank you for the thoughts & prayers. Well, I got the internet going– for free, no less, as a friend found a way to turn his android phone into a wireless hot spot– but it’s limited to how often I can borrow the phone. Still, I have no complaints about free wifi. It’ll be a slow process getting the blog thing going again– mine needs a major overhaul!

    Getting back on my feet is everything right now. I’m starting from scratch in a way I never have before…over the last couple of years, some less-than-ideal living situations have led to nearly everything I owned getting stolen (computer, money, 95% of clothes & shoes, jewelry, CDs). But hey, it makes for light traveling. 🙂 A friend totalled my car, which meant I lost my job. The economy is pretty dead around the neighborhood I’m in, and finding a job within walking distance has proven unsuccessful.

    I’m at rock bottom, which means a drastic change is coming, whether I’m ready or not. What I’m really hoping for is a way to get into a medical detox program ASAP (tomorrow, if I could!). A friend says Arizona offers some decent options for free. It sounds silly to travel all the way to Arizona, but I’ve looked into everything Portland & Vancouver have to offer and hit dead ends. I could likely get to AZ okay, assuming there’s somewhere to go. Otherwise, it’s (likely very soon) going to be cold-kicking on a cold floor in this cold city (i.e. hell for the next 2 weeks). The inability to detox on my own has been by far my biggest roadblock for the last 2 of 3 years. I did get clean & was rocking for almost a year, but each relapse & successive kick has gotten worse, to the point where I’ve had life-threatening complications each time I’ve seriously tried to kick & resultingly failed. So hopefully, a door or window will open soon and I’ll get back to living again! Some ZA winter sun & palm trees sound nice this time of year….
