Some things I've been pondering...

So, here's my rambling thoughts...

What makes a person strong? What makes someone weak? Can someone be strong with some weakness? Can you be strong, smart but have a darker side of you? Is it possible to be both strong, courageous and wise but still feel weak in certain area? Are we hypocrite to not show our dark side, our weak side all the time? Do we have to be perfect and infallible to be strong women? Do you guys have a weak /darker side. You know a part of you still affected by whatever you've been through? How the hell do you reconciliate both side of you? And still feel the strong You? Does it make any sense?

I had a phone conversation with a representative from the insurance company. (head office) I applied 3 weeks ago for a life insurance policy. She asked me all type of questions, the period they're allowed to ask questions for is the last 5 years. The lady asked me some stuff covering ALL my life. What the fuck? They can't even ask for my medical record covering more than the last 5 years so why the fuck ask me stuff covering a longer period of time? So I'm still waiting to hear my approval or rejection. It could take up to fucking weeks. It's unfair, I'm healthy, I'm sane, what the hell? My local rep is a sweetie, I gave her a call to let her know about this afternoon's phone talk. She was cool and nice, she told me this company takes a lot of time making decision.

My weekend was nice, I stayed with The Seminarian and The Nurse's mom and was back yesterday in the early evening.

I wanna go to the mall tomorrow, I need to pick up a Clinique product and shop around. I have a meeting for The Parish on Wednesday so I'm free till then.

I watched this weekend few episodes from the "The L Word", it's very good. I enjoyed the show. Are any of you guys watching it?

What's up with you guys?

Good for you for getting life insurance while you are young. We got it when we were in our early 30s and are delighted we did! Good luck with it!

I do have a dark side and a weak side, and I think part of my strength as a person (not as a woman) is the fact that I am not afraid to show it or share it.

Not much going on here. Working and watching crud on tv. Hope something good comes on tonight.

I had a TERRIBLE experience applying for life insurance. I told the rep I was in therapy, and she asked exactly when I started seeing my shrink. I told her an approximate date and gave her permission to call my doctor. "I don't want to ask her," she sniffed, "I'm asking YOU." I felt as though she wanted to catch me in a lie. It was mortifying!

So that's just how insurance companies can be, I guess. I'd tell you not to take it personally, except I remember my encounter as if it was yesterday.

have you just started watching it or are you watching the current season? i watch it. have been since the beginning. i have a love-hate relationship with it. i really like this season but sometimes the characters aren't very likable but i have to know what happens anyway. shane is my favorite character.

Thanks Vixen and Claudia!!!!

The Gal: thanks for helping me get some peace after the crappy experience with the rep. You're helping me!!! :)

Jehara: I watched Season 1 this weekend and watched season 5 on showcase.ca. I have missed the whole inbetween. I liked Marina in season 1, I like Bette and Shane. Jenny acts like a bitch in season 5. I've missed a lot.

I need to get the 2-3-4 some way...

Hi, NNG! Just making my rounds.

I think everyone has some kind of "dark side" to them. It just depends on how each person handles it. And being strong doesn't mean you can't be weak in some areas. I think it's the weakness that can help make a person stronger. :o)

The worst experience i had was when I hurt my back while working and collected worker's comp for THREE days. The follow-up calls to my doctor etc went on for years and the file was about a foot thick - all for a 3 day period for which I collected chicken shit!
What's with these people?

No Nonsense Girl said...

CQ: It makes sense to me too. :)

Hazel: Wow, That's very aggravating. I'm sorry you dealt with that. They're trying to avoid scammers but are being a PITA to us, honest people.
