Can you believe it??? only 5 days left

WOW...can't believe there are only 5 days left to go! I had to take a few days out as I came down with a sucky cold, but we are rolling along with rehersals!

I had a nice long one the other day...8 am to 11:30 pm! Glad I got to sleep in the next day. Chris and I took a day to go around to a bunch of the pavillions and we had so much fun! We also went to a victory ceremony and got to see Maelle Ricker get her gold medal! very cool! This was followed by a Paul Brandt concert which i loved and Chris was very good about (even though he doesn't really like country music!).

Working on the closing has been a very different experience than the opening was. It feels more fractured but means that it will be a suprise for me too!! I got the subscription for the opening and closing on my ipod, its pretty cool. It was 2.50 I think and I get a copy of both ceremonies without all the other stuff i have on my PVR!!

I have updated my photo's so you can check out the link again here if you like!

The closing is a totally different show and I hope you will check it out! I doubt I will have very good pics from the closing as I have three seperate jobs to do for the closing and we will not get to sit in the stadium like last time! But I will post anything I can get!

Hope you have been enjoying the olympics!!!

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…
