Far, Far Away ...

Well kids, I have been away for a long while again. I don't know what I've been thinking but I have been busy. Family, friends, work and playtime; but now it's time to get back to work and start blogging about my random thoughts. Which there are a lot of! I'm surprised I'm not in a looney bin.
Well, check back soon for more and more to read and see ... Muah!

Down At Duke's ...

The other night I went to a gathering with some friends at a corner bar called DUKE'S ON WATER.

All Hail The Queen ...

A few weeks back I was online and saw that LIL' KIM was coming to my area. I was excited and pissed off all at the same time when I found out this wonderful news. Why? Because it was less than a week before the concert and how was I gonna get tickets to be able to go. I was really bummed. I mean this is The Queen Bee! Damn I was freaking out! She is coming here and I found out way too late to be able to make it to what would the best time in my life ever. What the fuck?!!!

So, I did what I always do and called my friend Glory to rave and complain about the fact that the Best Raptress EVER was coming to town but the fact that I found out too late to go. She was totally supportive because she knows how much I love Kim and gave a lot of the same suggestions to be me about what I should do about the whole thing that I would have given to her if Glory was in my shoes. But as we talked about it we couldn't come up a solution that was feasible or even real. So, the only thing she could do for me was listen to me cry about the whole thing and try to make me feel better about the fact that I couldn't go to the show.

Anyway, well a few days go by and Glory calls and leave a message on my voicemail that makes me almost pee my pants. What could it have been you're thinking? Well, Glory called to tell me that she scored 2 tickets to the LIL' KIM show!!! Of course I didn't believe her because I just knew that she was fucking with me again because she knows how much I love Kim. But then she sent me a picture mail of the tickets and then I knew she meant what she was saying and it did take a little time for the news she just shared with me to sink in.
Aaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!! OMG I WAS GONNA GET TO GO SEE LIL KIM IN CONCERT WITH MY BFF GLORY!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!

Well, if you knew me you'd know I wouldn't have to tell you how much fun I had at the show. I mean do you understand what I am telling you? I went to the LIL' KIM concert! And it was amazing! She danced, chatted, cracked jokes, talked about her home life and rose the roof by rapping her ass off! ~ How Many Licks? ~ Lady Marmalade ~ I Got A Crush On You ~ Lighters Up ~ and Kim also paid huge tribute to The Notorious B I G through out the whole night. And it was true magic for me. I mean all I could do was cheese out the entire night.

And to top off the whole thing Kim brought people up onto the stage for her last song to help her rock the house and to help her close out the night. It was so cool to see because she was really interacting with her fans in full force. My friend Glory asked me why I didn't raise my hand to be invited up onto the stage with LIL' KIM but truth be told I chickened out. I mean how could I share a stage with The Queen Bee and be able to do her justice.
So, Thanks to my girl Glory, I had the best night ever and got to see my girl LIL' KIM in person!!! It was a dream come true!

Red Hot People, Red Hot Party, Red Hot Time ...

So I got invited to a party on Saturday June 5th, 2010 and I do have to say that it was a lot of fun. It was called "THE RED PARTY 2010." Everyone was supposed to wear RED or some variation of it for party admission.

The Hosts had a house full of people in a sea of Red. It was so cool that the people who came ot the party really got into the theme as much as they did.

There weren't any decorations considering the party had a there but the Red wear was fun to look at. Some people really went all out (<--- check out this guy) and some came in casual wear "red t-shirt n jeans," some people even showed up very dressy. (see pic --->)

Another rave for me was the food! Man, oh man, did they have the spread available to eat. I didn't get a chance to ask who did the catering but I saw two 6 foot subs, a BBQ wings plater, a chicken tenders plater, a veggie plater, a snack (cubed meats & cheeses) plater, dips & crackers, the best water chestnuts wrapped in bacon (i know), and all kinds of deserts. Damn the food was good and got ripped apart in a snap but there was plenty for everyone to eat.

Another thing to report is the bar service. The hosts had a bar set up in the garage because it was raining so they couldn't have the bar or dance floor in the courtyard in the back of their house like they planned. They had the bartender make punch bowls full of vodka cranberries, there was also 2 kinds of beer, cans of iced tea, 7up soda and cranberry juice. The vodka cranberries made me very thirsty. Yum!

And I don't know who was in charge of the playlist but the music was great! There was a mix of dance, techno, disco, rap, 80's, and funk. There were plenty of songs to dance your ass off to so I did just that!

All in all it was a great party and I can't wait until next year: "THE RED PARTY 2011!"

Forgive Me ...

Dear Everyone,

I know that I have been away for a while and I don't have an excuse for my behavior; I can only ask for your forgiveness.

The beginning of this month has been a complete whirlwind for me. The 1st of this month was my birthday, on the 4th I worked at a senior lock-in grad party out in Hartland, WI, and then on the 5th I hosted the first annual "The Red Party" 2010 ~ it was a huge success! I'll post pics soon.

Thanks for all of your support everyone,
Happy Blessings,
BERTO McSQUIRTO

PS: it's going to be a wonderful Summer ...

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you, tomorrow ... You're only a day away ...

The EVO comes out tomorrow and Best Buy just called to let me know that my appointment time for pick up is at 11am. I am so excited to get this phone.

Now, I know the Instinct that I had for the last 2 years isn't anything like the EVO's gonna be but I take care of my phones and I'm gonna love this one just as much if not more. But with so many features that its supposed to have, it'll take me that long to explore it all ~ and it'll be so fun too.

Hot, Hot, Hot!!!

I just learn one of the best things I have ever learned and it tickles me so fancy that I had to share it with you!

One of the HOTTEST Men I've ever seen is named JOHN GAVIN, the American film and TV actor, businessman and diplomat who was Ronald Reagan's first Ambassador to Mexico, was born John Anthony Golenor on April 8, 1931, in Los Angeles, California.

Tall, dark and handsome, standing at 6'4" the son of an Irish Father and Mexican Mother, Gavin has starred in many movie productions including: Imitation of Life (1959), Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus (1960) and probably his best known role of Sam Loomis in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960).

Gavin, gained a fluency in Spanish that was to aid him in his future career in diplomacy. John Gavin graduated with honors from Stanford University, majoring in Latin American economic history. "Law, Latin America and diplomacy were my early interests," Gavin said. He was commissioned an officer in the U.S. Navy in 1952, where he served in naval air intelligence until his 1955 discharge.

If he had been a more successful actor, it "might have prevented me from fulfilling my real childhood dream: to be U.S. ambassador to Mexico." The 1980s brought America a new president, and on May 7, 1981, Republican Gavin was appointed Ambassador to Mexico by President Reagan, serving until June 10, 1986.

Handsome, Sexy and Smart ... what more could you ask for in a Man?!?

So Blessed ...

Well, today is my wonderful friend Wendy's birthday! I hope that she has a great day. The only part that kinda sucks is the fact that she's away working (she's an Army Woman) and I won't get to see or spend time with her on her B~Day!
I Love U Wendy! Have a great day Lady.
Rock the house!!!

Make Ur Own Way ...

So, I came across this deck of tarot cards I wanted really bad; the cards are called THE SIMPLE TAROT DECK.

I found the cards on a tarot website and they are really great looking tarot cards and correctly named too. The art is very simple with bare bones basics decor on black backgrounds to illustrate each card. The people cards don't even have faces, so you have to use your intuition and imagination to do readings with them.

Anyway, through the website I found the cards on I tried to buy the tarot deck, only to find out that they are out-of-print. :-(

Well, after that disappointment, what was I gonna do? I guess no tarot cards for me, huh? But, after a little further digging into the website I found the cards on, I found a link to the author & creator of THE SIMPLE TAROT DECK. Bingo! Right? Wrong!

I got a hold of the author of the deck and expressed how much I love the cards and that I couldn't wait to buy a copy or 2 for myself. He said that he was very pleased to hear how much I liked his work. I told him that I tried quite a few avenues to buy his tarot deck before getting a hold of him. He was surprised, considering the site I originally found them on wasn't selling any, neither was Amazon and looking on eBay wasn't any better.

He said that he originally produced the cards himself and only had 2oo made because it wasn't cost effective if he wanted to sell them at a reasonable price to the public; so he stopped making them. I told him that I was disappointed. I really wanted that deck of cards BAD!

Then, "Taahh Daahh;" he sent me a link to a site that contained the art for all 78 cards in full and the art for the card backing AND a letter giving me FULL PERMISSION to use the art to create my very own SIMPLE TAROT DECK if I could find a cost effective way to do so.

I mean, was this a dream come true or what!? Not really. Why? Because I went to every copy shop I could think of with the CD of art I had and they all told me it would be expensive to have a 78 card deck printed both front and back. Damn it!

Then it came. The miracle I needed to make having THE SIMPLE TAROT DECK for myself come true. A friend of mine, who is also a tarot enthusiast; gave another friend of ours an out-of-print tarot deck that she had been looking for. I asked her where she found it, thinking maybe that store would carry a copy of the tarot cards I wanted. She said that she made them. Made them? I asked her how she did it. She told me that it was very easy but time consuming. I told her about everything that had happened; finding the deck, finding out they aren't available, finding the author, getting permission and copy store disappointment.

So, to end this story on the best note ever; my friend told me step by step how she made the deck of cards for our other friend. And I followed her instructions to the letter and I produced the most beautiful deck of cards ever and one of my most absolute favorites. The picture above is the result of my labor.

Hmmm ...

Sometimes I feel so weird because I just rant and rave, sometimes. Maybe it's because of the way I feel with other people and all their junk, maybe. I wonder if I would be able to just let things go then I could go back to my laid back self, I wonder.

Through a friend I've discovered www.PANDORA.com which is the best music site ever!

And it's all FREE!!! If you try it, you're gonna love it; just like I do!!! Explore and enjoy!!!

Never Sleep Again ...

I am so excited that today I get to go and relive my nightmares by going to see A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2010! I'm going to the matinee at 10:45am, I know is that like super early or what?!
Anyway, I'm trying not to expect much because I want to love it! The 80's series of NIGHTMARE movies was great, at least the first 3 movies were great; but rest (6 movies) sucked! I'm so excited, I'll tell you how it was when I get home this afternoon. Scream at you later! AAAHHHH!!!!!

Ramble, Ramble, Ramble ...


I know I started out wanting this blog to be about being healthy and a healthy point of view. But somehow I feel like getting out everything that's on my mind at any given time would be a healthy cleanse. I mean just so long as I get out of my head, off my heart and clear my soul.
This little guy is one of the reasons I need a light heart free from stress. His name is Louis. I got him from the Wisconsin Dalmatian Rescue in April of 2009. His birthday is February 8, 2008 so that makes him just over 2 yrs old. And boy oh boy has he added more to my life, than I could ever give him. I will try to pay him back though.

It's Me ...



Hey everybody, just wanted to post a little note and show you a picture of myself! I love this picture because I'm in my favorite chair and wearking my favortie clothes. I know I sound totally goofy, but whatcha gonna do?!?

Stress Relief = Fun!

A drink, a plate of food and friends = a great party and a great time! I went to a meet and greet mixer last night and I had a lot of fun. The best part about the evening was meeting new people. Normally, I'm not big on going places I'm not familiar with but I figure why not branch out and take a chance on something I haven't tried before.
So last night included an Opera House, meeting people who own and run businesses right in my community and making new friends. I met 2 restaurant owners, a club owner, furniture refurbish store owner and some everyday Joes. And at the end of the night I had 1 Vodka Cranberry and caught a little buzz; which was the icing on the cake. I had a great time and that makes for stress free living; which can ease life.

Chanting ...

I just discovered that chanting is a great way to get yourself into a zone to be able to tackle, change and realize your goals. From what I've learned you have to make this process simple and easy for yourself, so you'll enjoy the experience and continue to use it.
So, how do you do it, how does it work?
1st) decide what it is you want: "Health."
2nd) write a simple sentence about what you want, the fewest words the better: "I Enjoy Perfect Health!"
3rd) place a big smile on your face and repeat your chant to yourself for as long as you can, while enjoying the happy feelings your chant gives you.
Try it and see what it gives you. What you can give to yourself.

Meditate!!!

Stress is one of the main Spirit killers. And I've turned to meditation to help shed and ease the stress levels. Now, granted I'm blessed in that I really don't have a lot of stress in my life but there are those days when sometimes things just get to you.
I found a guided meditation called THE LOVING KINDNESS MEDITATION, which takes you through a step by step cleanse and restore. The first time I tried it I didn't know what to expect. Now if I just give in to the voice and music and relax, I can really open up to the guidance given and really absorb the practice.
Here's the link www.msi-healing.com/LovingKindness to check out the info on the CD by BILLIE TOPA TATE. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hit The Bricks ...

Today I went to the gym. It's been a while since I've been to the gym and it felt great! I only did the elliptical for 30 minutes and my legs felt wobbly afterward but it did feel good to sweat it out. I gotta keep the momentum going on shedding fat. Then I've gotta gain muscle. I gotta be sexy by June 1st, 2010; because it's my birthday and I gotta be HOT!!!

My New Mantra ...

This lil ditti has been singing over and over in my head, so I've decided that it should be my new mantra; at least for a little while.
"NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS BEING THIN FEELS"
I didn't come up with this chant and I don't knwo where I got it from but it totally works! Don't you think? Everytime I hear it go off in my head; which is so random, I think about what I have been eating. Espcecially at bed time. I've gone to bed for the last 4 nights hungry. I think it's making a difference. We'll see.

Paths To Relief ...

I've recently learned that my anger release is the first step to a happy healthy me. As far as how I should go about my release is totally up to me, but I think I have some ideas
There are a lot of therapies that I already know and have practiced before; like mantra chants, candles, incense burning, music, coloring books & crayons and prayer/wish/meditation beads.
So, I'm gonna do what I know first to calm myself, see how I feel and go from there. So many paths to choose from I don't know which to try first. I'm kind of excited just from these thoughts coming from me out loud.

A Discovery ...

I guess that on some level I've always known it but, I just realized that my Anger is the first place I need to work on to kick off my Good Health focus.
I mean sometimes I spout off for no reason or swear just because I can. Other times I can't stand being near people because they irritate me and other times certain people just piss me off.
So I have to learn not to be so angry so much. Or better yet get myself back to the old happy go lucky Me!

A New Found Purpose ...

I just realized what I could use this blog for! I am going to track my personal growth in my own overall health! Now, I do understand that "Health" is a huge spectrum. There's the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual parts that all make up a well rounded person's good health. And I will try to keep you posted in my own personal discoveries, with pics and videos to help me illustrate my progress. Don't blink, you might miss something!

Cooking ...

For the very first time ever I tried to make Mexican rice yesterday. And it turned out pretty good but I used more water than I should've. Anyhow, the next time I try it I'll use less water and try to remember the recipe I used as far as the spices and flavorings. I'm just glad it got eaten.
