You like me, you really like me

23 Aug

I just got news that a dear friend of mine nominated me for the  “Tell Me About Yourself” award!  I didn’t know how to feel, how to respond.  I’ve seen these mythical squares on a lot of other blogs, proudly boasting about awards, but never thought of myself as worthy of any public recognition like that.  I wanted to know why.  What have I done to deserve this?  Who gives out this award?  What will I wear for the award ceremony?  Is there a red carpet involved?  Do I have to get a bikini wax? (I hope not, that shit hurts.)

Then I went to Mistress M’s page, as her message instructed, and got the idea of what this award entails.  Like her, I have to write a post outlining seven things about myself that most people wouldn’t know and then nominate seven more blogs for the award.  Her post reminded me of one I have been planning on writing for a while now, so I’m mixing the two and hope that they make sense to you.

This blog was born a little over a month ago.  It was conceived with the idea that I would be documenting my experiences while I look for love and it’s true meaning.  In the little time that I have been writing, it has evolved, taken a life of its own, and now I could not tell you exactly what it is.  This is my space for random ramblings, where sometimes I write to make sense of the silly things that happen to me.  This is the place where I became a writer again, after being everybody else’s everything for so long.

Caramelolimón has also become the doorway through which a lot of wonderful people have entered my life.  They all might be serial killers in their real lives (not you Mistress M, I’m sure you would have told us), but in the blogosphere they are spectacular!  I have found so many people that think and feel like me, people who make my mistakes and teach me to laugh with them.  There are people who write with their hearts on their sleeves and give me permission to go into their lives.  I’ve met strong women, unapologetic women, funny women, and they have shown me support and encouragement.

To all of you, the ones I have interacted with, and the ones I stalk from a distance, I need to say Thank You.  I also have to ask you all to never leave.  You know I have abandonment issues.

Here are the seven things you do not know about me:

  1. I am the only girl of four children.  My brothers and I all have a three year separation in between.  My mother is a pretty redhead with fine straight hair and a beautiful youthful complexion.  My father is dark skinned with coarse black hair and a nose that you’d have to see.  My brothers and I look like everything in between those two.   We are a funny looking family!
  2. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  I can skip any other, but not breakfast.  I almost always have the same: whole wheat toast, a boiled egg, and coffee.  Breakfast time is my me-time.  I get up an hour earlier just to make sure that I will be having breakfast all by my pretty little self.  I receive the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday newspapers at home and spread them out throughout the week to read with my breakfast, so I get my news two or three days later.
  3. I have gone through a sexual re-awakening in the past few months.  It hasn’t even been a year.  In these months I have let myself do more, enjoyed more, experimented more, and learned more about myself than I had in my 10 years of marriage.  True, I had a more steady supply of sexual encounters when I was married, but I feel like none of them were under my own terms.  I was always responding to his desires (Oh! A new post!).  On October of last year, I took a man to my bed.  I told him what to do, when and where.  There’s no coming back from that.
  4. Lately I’ve been feeling kinda out of place.  I feel like I’ve been living life on the settler’s lane.  I want to do something transcendental.  I want to be awed.  I feel like moving away to Italy.  I want to do the Eat Pray Love thing.  But I have a daughter that I can’t transplant anymore than I have done already, and I don’t want to leave her behind to live the life her father has chosen.
  5. I have been thinking of my influence in my community and of how to teach my daughter to love and care for her country.  This one is not easy to explain unless you are a Puertorrican from my generation.  In simple words, we are a colony of the United States.  More than half of our population wants to be a state and a very small percentage knows that we will never be one.  For years, the discourse has been one of assimilation of seeing ourselves as the weaklings, as if without the US we will not strive as a country.  I wasn’t officially taught to be proud of my nationality.  They wanted me to be proud of my American citizenship.  In schools, they don’t talk about our great people and our great strengths.  Our pride comes from within the small people, not from our leaders.  My country is living an identity crisis that has been going on for years.  I’m feeling the need to do something, to at least instill that love and pride in my daughter.  I have almost no time to write this blog, but the idea of another blog has been bugging me for some days now.
  6. I am the greatest sexter there ever was.  French Guy once described me as an intellectual sexter.  Ever since I discovered dirty talk, I have not been the same, ever.  I kinda wanna have a new guy, any guy, just so I can sext with him.  I do have a new  friend with whom I have sexted, and phone sexed, but that doesn’t count cause it’s just for play.
  7. I haven’t always felt beautiful, so I made up this list of features that I run through my head every once in a while to remind me of all the beautiful things that make me up:  beautiful eyes framed by long luxurious lashes, sexy luscious lips, supple gorgeous delicious breasts, and legs that have been known to awaken forbidden passions in unknown observers.  All of that, and other not so loved features make me what I am, which is pretty damn alive!

Whoa!  This post has gone on for way too long.  I also want to be freshly pressed, so I’m going to break the text with a picture of my freaking awesome legs in my favorite spot at the beach:

Oh, island life!

Here are the bloggers who I think are also worthy of loads of awards:

  1. http://confederacyofspinsters.com/ – I don’t know them very well, and they don’t know me.  But they are hilarious and I agree with a lot of what they have to say.
  2. http://onethousandsingledays.com/ – She is a superwoman with a great sense of humor and a very straightforward style.
  3. http://theseattletheory.wordpress.com/ – He writes from the heart, which is for the moment a little wounded.  I have never wanted to see someone I don’t know at all be as happy as I want him to be.
  4. http://egointhesea.wordpress.com/ – This kid is young, honest, and eager to experience life.  I may not always agree with his methods (case in point, his latest post), but he writes so openly that you have to love him for it.

I know it’s supposed to be seven, but in all good conscience these are the ones that I truly know.
