Thoughtfully...Thought-Out....Thursday...Thoughts #61

1. So am I to understand that with new blogger you can see how many people have viewed a post? If so, how is it that 60 people read the post but only 6 commented? Really y'all? O_o!

2. These cars.com commercials slay me. I LOVE IT!

3.  It’s May y’all... MAY!! This year is flying by too fast for me.

4. If you are not watching Game of Thrones something is not right in your world!! Be about it! LOL!
5. I went on some type of crazy shoe binge, I bought so many new pairs of shoes I just don’t understand what happened. I guess I was celebrating being Freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
6. I have really been evaluating my life lately. I am so disturbed that people feel like they can speak to me any ole kinda way. I should be able to keep my emotions in check by now but it's like something builds up inside and I erupt. I think if I had just asked Talky why she was speaking to me in that tone early on maybe the situation would not have gone so wrong.
7. I saw an old woman walking and while observing her I noticed that she stopped to rest twice. She was also pulling luggage. It bothered me that this elderly woman was outside on a hot day walking alone. I pulled up beside her and asked her would she like a ride? I felt the need to tell her that I was safe. She accepted and I took her home. She said, “God told me as long I served him he would always provide for me.” she really was tired It felt really good to be a taxi cab angel. :)
8. I’ve decided to finish watching the Oscar movies and do one big post since ain't hardly nobody participating. The movies are actually pretty good. I just watched The Descendants and I think Hugo and/or Tree of Life is next.

9.So how do you like this new background? I think I'll stick with this one for awhile. Let me know if I need to darken any fonts or anything. Thanks!

10. Seen and Heard - I don't know HOW I missed this! I love my president!!!

1. That's just the way it is GP! You'll get waaaay more folks looking than commenting.
6. Watch out! Alternate view! People who are sensitive about the way people talk to them should really evaluate their self perception. You may think too highly of yourself. There is nothing wrong with defending yourself if someone clearly is out of pocket but I have had to put myself in check when it comes to my humility levels when I start getting super sensitive about how I fell everybody is talking to me crazy. *dont hit me*
7. That was really a nice thing to do. I would have thought she was gonna rob me.
9. I like green so I like it.

MissKroberts said...

1. I feel a shoe binge coming on..and it will likely happen very, very soon! lol No need to explain why, put reason to it. Those binges feel good!
2. Kudos to you for being a sweetie and helping that lady..what you put out, you will get back!
3. I had to really learn how to start expressing myself without blowing up. For some reason, I think my face must say..hey i'm soft and you can say whatever you want to me! So I really had to learn take a step back, evaluate, approach(not agressively), then if I don't get the desired results I may blow! LOL

★Starrla Monae☆ said...

1. Yeah I guess that is when lurkers come into play. They may read and share your post but no one comments. *shrugs*

3. Man this year sure has upped its speed. May is vacay month for me so I'm excited!

6. Some people need to learn how to talk to other people. The sermon in church last Sunday touched on older folks who think that being advanced in age also meant being rude. Be mindful of what you say to folks and HOW you say it. Geesh!

7. "God told me as long as I served him he would also provide for me." I love that! I'm so glad you were her angel too.

8. I like the buttons on the new design.

Thoughtsofsoutherngal said...

1. Comments are way down all over blogger. I get a high number of hits but only around 4 comments per post, *shrugs* Well at least I know people are reading.

3. This whole year is moving too fast!

6. You and I had a short discussion about this on twitter. I need to step back and do what KRock says because it's gotten to the point where I think everyone is trying to talk crazy to me then I get defensive.

Bajan Beauty said...

1. I was wondering what "new" blogger everyone was talking about only to realize I have been using the new interface since last year, lol.

4. I just started season 1, I am watching too many series at once, Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones and Justified!!! Sheesh I am behind. Oh and TRUE BLOOD comes back next month =)

5. I just treated myself to a nice summer clothing haul for graduation. We need to see some these shoes you bought.

7. I have done this before, I saw an older lady dragging her groceries home and it made me think of my Grandma. That lady gave me a thousand kisses for giving her a ride home =). She was too sweet.

MrsTDJ said...

1. It used to phase me, but not anymore. One day last week, I got 200 hits and 1 comments. LOL!

4. Game of Thrones is on my list, but I haven't gotten to it yet. I've heard nothing but GREAT things about it.

7. Aww, that was super sweet of you lady! Thanks for sharing.

Background is good and I see everything just fine.

Nexgrl said...

I'm not watching Game Of Thrones, so I guess something is wrong in my world.. I haven't even watched a partial episode. I'm not big on period pieces.

I hope your closet can handle the recent increase in shoes.

Your Angel Taxi Service Duty cancels out the yelling at Talky.

@K Rock
1. I was kinda shocked I didn't even think my little ole blog got THAT much traffic.
6. I wouldn't hit you for your honest opinion I welcome it.:) I have taken a step back and tried to evaluate and I think it's more about tone. I just don't like rude, nasty people and my tolerance for that is gone now. The best I can do at this point is work on MY reaction. My reaction is what has me so troubled. I used to be able to take more, but I'm working on "checking me" :)
7.Girl she was really old! LOL! I watched her for a minute tho. She had walked pretty far down the street and there was no bus stop in sight so that's what made me help her.
8. I love green too!

5. Indeed they do! My doorbell was ringing so often with "presents" I was thrilled! :)
6."I think my face must say..hey I'm soft and you can say whatever you want to me!"That is EXACTLY how I feel! What is it about me that makes them think that's okay? I'm working on me tho!
7. I definitely believe that! I want to put all the goodness I can out into the atmosphere.

1.I guess so. Blogger making it easier to see is just WOW! for me.
3.It's zooming by waaaaaaay too fast for me. I feel like I'm not getting enough done. Have a wonderful vacation!! :)
4. Yes they do! I had deal with my sister a few years back with her unnecessary nastiness. Mean for no reason does not fly with me. Girl! The older church folks need to quit! At that age you need to be sweet as pie! lol
7. Thank you! I felt really good.
8. Thank you! Wouldn't a maxi dress in this pattern be dope? lol

Trish said...

1. I need to figure out how to use this new blogger.

2. They ARE funny!

3. It is racing at the speed of light for me, its almost frightening.

4. Never heard of it! Am I a loser??

5. I need more.

6. Exploding isn't a good feeling at all!

7. God had me pick up a lady and her daughter once, the bad part was my older brother happened to see it! I had to lie to him, I was about 19, its about time I come clean after all these years.

Gorgeous_Puddin said...

1. I guess I should be happy that people are reading too.
3. Yes it is!
6. We did and I appreciate being able to vent with you a little. :) K Rocks advice is good and I'm going to do the same.

@Bajan Beauty
1. You're one of those jump right into change people which is good. I resist change until the very end. LOL! I hate when Twitter, FB or blogger changes.
4. Wow, you ARE watching a lot of series LOL! I saw the preview for True Blood and YELLED!! I can't wait!
5. You deserved that shopping spree Graduate!! lol I will do a shoe post...
7. See...we are both taxicab angels! Yeah!

1. I'm trying to get over it. Dang 200? LOL!
4.G o T truly is a great series. I enjoy period pieces and HBO nailed it again with this one.
7. Thank you! :D

Gorgeous_Puddin said...

You slay me with your deadpan. I bet you are a riot in person.

That's just it..it can't I need more shoe space!

Thank you! I am hoping it did..I really am lol

1. It took me a couple of days to really figure everything out you'll get pretty quick.

2. Aren't they tho? Especially the first one. I could not stop laughing the first time I saw it.

3. Exactly! it is a little scary like tomorrow will be 2013 geez!

Don said...

I believe many read while not commenting and some return to read the comments of other readers.

Loved the fact that you offered the older woman a ride to the crib, and she sounds like her faith is unbreakable.

People will always speak to you in a manner in which you won't agree. But as I've learned it's how you respond that makes the difference.

Up4Dsn said...

Yo! I didn't see that cars joint with the chick singing in her head. LOL! That's wild.

I keep hearing people rave about Game of Thrones. I have to check it out. Would you mind filling me in on what's so great about it? Thanks in advance!

What you did for that woman truly was God. In our society we have become so accustom to ignoring people and only worrying about ourselves. It's sad.

Alexandra Elizabeth said...

It's so interesting why people choose not to comment, it's for different reasons, not let it deter you!!

P.S. I love this... said...


1. I have just logged into blogger in I don't know how long.. I wasn't posting, just decided to peruse Reader. Same stuff, different day... Did notice alot of people having babies, though. I will go back later and see the new interface tutorial. I love getting comments and "meeting" new bloggers.. I usually leave a comment when someone leaves one for me.

3. Yeah, May is over half-way through, the year is flying.

4. I keep hearing about GofT, I may check it out.

5. LOL, I'm on a shoe binge.. most of those ordered, haven't even been taken out of the shipping box. And I have all these shoes and nothing to wear with them. =/

6. I've been in self evaluation mode as well (get outta my head). I have cut back on everything social, blogging, etc and focusing on me, my peace of mind and health. I'm trying to find my Zen...

7. Good for you! That was really sweet.

9. Great new backgroud. I can see everything. =)

10. The President has a warm smile.

Ladynay said...

I LOVE the cars.com commercials. The one on top is my favorite! I played that one on YouTube about 5 times back to back and was in TEARS you hear me? LOL!

The background is busy, but I dig it.

Gorgeous_Puddin said...

I guess that’s okay... at least people are reading.

Yes, her faith inspired me! She ended up praying for me which I really needed and appreciated. God is always placing older women in my life. Love it!

I’m still working on my response. I will be a Jedi master once I don’t react at all! :)

Right?!? I’ve only seen that one played once. It is wild!

You have to just check Game of Thrones out. I really can’t explain what makes it so good, but I’m into period pieces and this one is done well with intriguing characters and a great story.

I too believe it was God! :)

@Alexandra Elizabeth
Welcome!! And thank you for commenting. I'm getting over myself LOL!

@P.S. I love this


1. I sort of operate in the same way. I leave comments when someone leaves one and I have my regular spots I drop by just because.

3.Just going by way too quick for me. Hello June! Great thing is TRUEBLOOD is almost HERE!! Woo hooo!

4. I think you would enjoy Game of Thrones! Check it out, but you have to start with Season 1

5. Shoe binges are fantastic. I too feel the need to buy new clothes to go with my Fab new shoes. See… you need to do a post so I can get some summer inspirations!!

6.Self-evaluation mode is GREAT! Thanks for letting me know what you’re up to. ZEN is good.

7. Thank you! :)

9. Thanks!

10. The President has a warm smile.<---- Indeed he does!

Thank you! Finally somebody else who can appreciate the ABSOLUTE HILARITY of those commercials! I laugh EVERY TIME.
