Thanks for reading my blog, I am grateful for the readers from the

Before the BIG storm sets in
Some ask me why I do not blog so often anymore. Can you blame me? Every time I write an exciting blog, SOMEONE gets pissed off, certain Presidents get in trouble, etc. I am not one to walk on eggshells, so I just walk around them instead. Some of the stuff that happens to me is too exciting to blog about. It would excite many but piss off a certain few and I just don't have the time to apologize so often.
So I use twitter to do mini-blogs when I am out and about. Harmless stuff that shouldn't irritate. Then there are things that take up too much space and won't fit on twitter. Like this SHIT: Left house at 6:15 pm for a facial at Bliss Spa. Then got a bite to eat, came home at 10pm, front of house was DARK and I KNOW I turned outside lights on when I left. Switch didn't help, lights had been UNSCREWED by some sneaky fuck who STOLE MY NEW BIKE. The Lesbians who live below me MUST have heard/seen this shit as my bike was chained up to the heavy duty judy fence on my porch, which is (no lie) THREE feet from their fucking bed room window. They MOAN and whine how, since their bed room window is so close to my bike and car, they can hear me leaving and coming each time but this time, they conveniently didn't hear any commotion. They have two YAPPY dogs too, are you kidding me? The dogs didn't bark? Pffft!
Fucking wenches, I swear, a while gang of hooded hooligans can come and snatch their cars right in front of me and I will just wave at them. The porch had been swept, no leaves there anymore, so either the thieves are anal about leaving their "work place" tidy or the bitches had been out there cleaning up. I am pissed/sad and feel violated. SURE it could be worse, things can ALWAYS be worse, but if you've ever had a bike stolen from your yard/porch, you know where I'm coming from.
No point in buying another bike NOW as it is getting cold out anyways. I will wait til Spring and spend ANOTHER $200 on a bike and this time I guess I will have to schlepp it inside every night. pffft. HATE THIEVES (a year ago my car was broken into and my purse was stolen along with many other things (iPod, speakers etc). Karma sadly takes too long for such idiots to get what they deserve sometimes.
Birthday is Tuesday, but I will be going out with the girls tonight (Monday) for karaoke and a bite to eat. Not sure about you but each year that passes, my tolerance of bullshit gets smaller. I always make new friends but sometimes I have to cut "old friends" out of my life. The kind of friends who are always there when they need a favor, promotion, help, money a lift somewhere, food, etc, but are never around when you would like to see them. THOSE kind of friends. I have "deleted" three of those recently and it feels good. One should not allow people to walk all over you, no matter how long you have known them you know? Sometimes I worry, does getting older mean being bitter? I hope not but it seems you have a choice, be a hammer or a nail. For me, friendship, or any kind of relationship should be give and take, not just take. But people LOVE to take and if you allow them to, they will never stop. I am thinking the more intelligent and/or successful people are, the less friends they have. Ever notice how people who have no job/money/goals have loads of friends? Easier to find others like that I suppose (and maybe life is easier like that). I can't live like that. I am too ambitious and it has nothing to do with earning. It has to do with the challenge of going as far as you can with your goals. Keeps me on my toes.
Even if I ever got wealthy, I would still drive same car, wear same clothes, etc. Would NOT go out and buy jewelry (STUPID) or designer clothes (EVEN DUMMER). Would maybe buy a house with HUGE yard and dog flap, to allow LOADS of dogs I would buy get in and out to shit without me having to bring them out each time. THAT is a goal. heh heh.
I am SUPPOSED to be writing my book and my literary agent told me last Jan "an hour a day please" I STILL haven't done that. YIKES!! By the time I am done answering the Dr. Dot emails, it's usually 6 or 7AM, then I watch something for an hour, as I just can't be asked to TYPE anymore, this is also why I don't blog much anymore either. I am so overwhelmed it's insane. BUT I am not complaining. I LOVE my work. I have morphed more into a dispatcher than a massage therapist. I spend at least 7 hours a day online connecting people. Helping people. So if you are frustrated that my blog has become too "work like" then please join me on twitter: dr_dot
Gotta get off here now "Lay off me, I'm STARVING!!"
See you there: http://twitter.com/dr_dot
I am so f-ing busy, I always end up answering my last email of the night at 6am (now) then the last thing on my mind is more writing. I promisd my lovely Literary Agent I would write one hour a day of my book. I am writing a book (life story, yadda yadda yadda). I agreed a week ago and still have not logged ONE hour for her 🙁
I get my keys today for my own tiny flat in Hoboken, NJ. I need space. I can not live and work at home with anyone around me, every single day. I go out of my mind. I am a loner, always have been. In Berlin I have my own flat, love it but not keen on the hasty anti-American public. So I am either REALLY alone in Berlin or way over crowded in NYC. Now as soon as I move in to my own space here, I will be at peace again. THEN I can get more work done and start the book. NOT happy about moving again (remember I just did a HUGE move last August, FOOK!!!).
On top of all that drama, I am studying for my American drivers license test (searching high and low for all my personal documents as you need a truck load of them to apply for a US drivers license and I can't find most of my papers (you have certified copies of your birth certificate, soc sec card, marriage/divorce papers, passport, omfg, I can't even remember the rest, but it's a lot). So I am swamped as can be. Still logging the Ask Dr. Dot questions and answers every day, helping folks with my sex/love advice and on top of all that, running the worlds biggest and best massage/chiropractic team "Dr. Dot Therapy LLC" (official company now 🙂
Had to get car tuned up, renew insurance, get a new blackberry (sounds simple? Then you do not know At+t). Everything at once for crying out loud!
Then there is Jasmine to tend to (LOVE love love), working out when I can and oh, sometimes I sleep). Forget hanging with friends or singing anymore, I rarely ever get to do that. I have loads of massage clients too. When my head hits the pillow at night (erm, I mean MORNING!) I can not turn my mind off. I gave up coffee and alcohol ages ago and it doesn't help, still wide awake. Planning my new tattoo as well, with Mr. Paul Booth, the master, again. This time, BEATLES and I am letting him design it (cross fingers they have skin on their faces 🙂
On top of all that I am taking iMovies lessons to learn how to make better films/videos, yay!. Not enough hours in the day for me. If you are interested in what I am doing, best to follow me on twitter (hope I don't sound like a snotty cunt saying that) but it is true, I post stuff on there ALL the time as it is faster. My twitter account is dr_dot
good night ( I mean morning 🙂
ps. I am posting random pics from last few days below
LOYAL clients since a few years, the Giypsy Kings ^ LOVE THEM!!
NJ Dot Bot, Amanda and drdot.com Webmaster, Dirk on stage at the Giypsy Kings gig in NYC
I LOVE the USA, look how fucking crazy people are? Look how HAPPY they are! NYC area is so much FUN!!
Scenes from Hoboken, NJ (I LOVE HOBOKEN!!)

View from Hoboken. How can you not love that?
The busier I get, the less time I have to sit down and blog. I use twitter much more often now as it is faster, easier and my blackberry is always with me.
Lots going on lately, it's insane. I reconciled with long time gal pal Chris Myers, which I am very pleased about. I lost my dog Frankie (he was put down without my permission/knowledge) and I have lots of friends from out of town hanging around lately too. NO FREE TIME at all but somehow it suits me.
My good friend G.A (only giving out his initials) is in town and we shall go to our favorite tattoo artist later so he can get more work done on his and I can talk to Paul Booth about the next one I want to get (a Beatles tattoo). Always fun to hang out with G.A. Face hurts from smiling after wards.
Wednesday I will go and massage and watch the Moody Blues- one of my all time favorite bands. I have seen them many times in concert and I never get bored. LOVE THEM.
Thursday will be all about work and working out. Friday I will go massage and greet two bands my team have been working with for a few years now; Rehab and Uncle Kracker. I have NO clue what their music sounds like, but they have been loyal clients of mine for years. I love meeting the peeps I have known for so long online, finally, in person.
I have been looking at several apartments lately- I need more space. I need an office space and a more privacy. I NEED SPACE. I miss my flat in Berlin dearly but I do NOT miss having to apologize every fucking day for being an American. Jesus fucking CHRIST, are you kidding me? People STILL judge you on where you were born? FUCK RIGHT OFF please. I have run out of energy to defend myself in Berlin. The Berliners LOATHE AMERICANS and I just can't/won't take it any longer. WISH I had come to this conclusion BEFORE I spent LOADS renovating my new Berlin flat. I am such an idiot sometimes when it comes to making up my mind. FUCK!!!!!!!
I turned my massage team into an official business now "Dr. Dot Therapy LLC". I absolutely fucking HATE paper work so a well paid accountant is helping with that. Thank GAWD. Libra's and paper work get along like water and oil. PFFFFFFFT!
In January I had really made up my mind to get a flat in Liverpool and hang out there sometimes rather than Berlin BUT NYC and the people around me have made me feel so much at home, I just love it now. I do not feel like an outsider like I do in Berlin. Here I fit in like a fish in water. This is my style. Fast paced, ambitious, hard working, FUN and exciting. Productive people all around me, who love to work. Always something to do (and eat) how can you not like it?
Perhaps I just have a knack for falling in love with the place I am at the time. Who knows. I love life so much I can hardly sleep. VERY gutted about my dog but what can I do? I guess I shouldn't get another one as I don't want to be responsible for another animal having the same fate. UGH.
It is 7am, I really have to sleep. Remember a while back I blogged about how great google sync was? Well that was pretty much the last time the fucker worked for me so I have yet another pesky problem on my hands, syncing my crackberry with my MAC. I know people (including me) have bigger problems, but these tiny problems seem to gnaw at you innit?

I feel sooooo guilty for not blogging properly in so long. I am so mad busy. I use twitter daily as it is easier and I can do it anywhere. I am on twitter as dr_dot by the way.
Looking for an apartment in the NYC area as I need more space, office space etc. My company is official now, so I am working my tail off to get things all lined up. Weather is GORGEOUS here in NYC lately, Spring is finally at our door. Not even bothered about going back to Berlin until Jasmine heads over. I do miss a few certain people but I do NOT miss being hated on a daily basis just for being an American. We can not choose where we are born. BUT we can avoid places that hate us innit? I can not help it that Berliners hate Americans. It is COOL to hate Americans over there. No matter HOW hard you try or even if you don't try, you just can't win, they just fucking hate Americans. Sucks because Berlin is such a pretty city with lots to do, but it wears you down defending yourself over and over again. I have just grown tired of it now and what bad timing too, as I just had found my dream apartment with the help of a dear friend last August. FUCK I always do everything backwards. All those years in Berlin in and out of shitty apartments and now that I am done with it, I find my dream apartment. OMFG!!!!!!!!
It is 5am, just NOW done answering today's emails, that is why I never blog, I am so swamped, answering emails, by the time I am done, the last thing on my mind is writing (or even wanking). BUT my face hurts from laughing so much here in the states. People LOVE TO LAUGH here. Makes live so much easier. Berliners, take note.
Maggie and I at karaoke
Out here for the Tour Link convention. Palm trees, orange trees, sun…. all good so far. HATED the flight- 5.5 hours, omfg. Could have flown to the UK in that time. I use twitter a lot now, much more than this blog, so if you want to follow me on twitter I am at:http://twitter.com/dr_dot
Holding on for dear life in back seat of taxi
Ronzilla ^ and Pooh
NY native and fellow karaoke FREAK, showed me and Rachel around Mesa and we ended up in a bar called the Tilted Kilt for karaoke. Hard putting up with drunks (local drunken men) when you are sober, ugh!
Local Mesa Dot Bot, Rachel ^ spoiling my feets after karaoke
View from my hotel room ^ (if you look closely you will see some orange trees)
Lazy cunt Pooh just lies around all day while I go out and bring home the bacon. Pffft.
Orange trees EVERYWHERE here in AZ. Lovin' it so far…
… and Palm trees too. I can imagine it must be hotter than hell here in the summer though.
Mesa, Arizona Dot Bot April ^ massaging my aching feet :p
Doesn't she resemble a young Grace Slick ?
In the pilot seat of a 19 million dollar private jet at the Tour Link "Jet BBQ". I felt like a fish out of water there
Went out to karaoke with a few dot bots and local friends at Uncle Monkeys. REALLY STRANGE! I ordered a GLASS of club soda with a splash of cranberry juice, no ice, and this is the "glass" they brought me. lol. It is super cheap in AZ. And sunny. So I can see the attraction. Not much ambition going on, people seem to just wanna chill out there. To each his own you know?
After karaoke at Denny's, 1:30 am ^ I was being interviewed by some guy, not sure what will become of it. Dot Bot Rachel was in on the action, I made some funny videos, will post asap.
