Great week so far....

Having a great week so far....and I think its going to be a great year coming up!

I am feeling surprisingly upbeat about being closer to 40 than 30...

I had a great date with Chris on the weekend for my birthday and then family lunch with the immediate family at Cambie noodle. We dropped my Dad off at the airport and went over to grandma's house for a visit and Mom and Brian and I ended up staying for dinner.

I think i might be allergic to my grandma's house...or maybe the blooming plant in the corner...or possibly the chinese food she orders. This is the second time i have had a very severe allergic reaction after being at her house. Someone remind me to ask her what the plant in the corner is.

My eyes have been swollen up for 3 days now, and are very dry and even cracking at bit...the swolleness in my face thankfully as gone down and its just my eyelids now. Don't tell Grandma im allergic to her house though....it might make her upset!

Rachel and Scott are coming to meet Chris and I and the Barons for dinner...I get to choose...and I think im going to say the REEF!!! yum yum...hopefully we can get a spot on the patio and watch the world go by on a hot hump day evening (with a nice frosty red stripe!! yummmmmy!)

This weekend we are also having a family bbq at tanya's house...I am sure you can come if you want! I hope we have lots of these back yard get togethers this summer. We are so busy i am not sure we are going to be able to get away camping, but i sure hope so!

Have a great day and thanks for all the awesome birthday wishes!

Continued adventures in dating.....

Good Morning readers!

All three of you!

I know you are chomping at the bit to hear all about my wild and crazy adventures in babysitting uh online dating.

Well for the most part it seems to be a wash out.   I will talk with some interesting guys and it seems good and then POOOOFF...they are gone.   I suspect its because i don't jump on the hey come F^&* me train fast enough?   Either that or my busy schedule doesn't work for them.   For the most part thought its just dudes looking for nookie!

Don't get me wrong, it hasn't all been bad, I have talked to some really nice guys but so far it hasn't turned in to much.   But let me tell you about one experience I had last night.

I have seen this guys profile on a couple of different sites - he uses the same three lame pictures which were taken one right after the other and then describes how amazing he is in the context of the stuff he has and what he has accomplished.  He is kind of cute.. i guess...in a bit of a we…

A Waste of Good Underwear....

Or alternatively…How I got stood up Once, Uh twice, WAIT Three times in one week!
Well....
To say that this week has been disappointing is an understatement.   I have to say about midweek last week I was feeling pretty on top of the pile.   I had dates lined up all the way until Thursday of the next week with some nice gentleman,I had dropped some more weightI had worn an old amazing pair of jeans and looked good!!I had nailed some tricky harmoniesI was learning 2 languages at the same time!I had made a new group of friends in Rome online (yes mom I am being safe and there are girls!), one of whom is a single, gorgeous Italian guy who wants to take me for Aperativo     and a night walk through some of the fountains in Rome! So you know feeling pretty good!

Then Sunday came….I was supposed to go for Coffee with  uhm lets call him Dutch we have been talking for a few months now.  I was actually surprised he got the nerve up to actually ask to meet.     I was supposed to be in Surrey but…

This week in online dating - you are Amazed by Me....

Or..alternatively - How does this chick get all these guys??

I think sometimes people are a bit amazed when they see me and see that I don’t really have a problem getting dates.  Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a post about me bashing myself so get off your soap boxes; but I think we have this media culture that tells us

FAT IS BAD!  NO ONE LIKES FAT!  FAT IS UGLY!! IF YOU ARE FAT YOU WILL BE SINGLE FOREVER!
NO ONE WILL WANT TO GET WITH YOU!



 I am going to have to call bullshit!
I will admit, if I a guy is super-hot, I generally don’t email or wink at him first.   I automatically assume that they will not be interested in me.   It always boggles my mind when a total hottie messages me and tells me how beautiful I am.   I regret to say I often ask them if they have seen all my pictures and know that I am a bigger more fluffy girl.   99.8% of the time the reply I get back is:
OH YES….I love a girl with gorgeous curves like yours.
I have to be honest; I get about 3 times as many messages as I te…
