Olympics 2010

I have to say at first i was excited...but not EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! about the olympics!

I have been working on the team doing the opening and closing and no dont ask me what I am doing I will just tell you "I was making sandwiches!!!'

Tonight we had a big rehersal and we invited people we love to come see it! It was amazing as usual! Tonight I got to stand in as a flag bearer for one of the countries and I have to say I was super nervous and really really excited! Walking around that stage was one of the coolest things I have done so far and only ramped up my excitement!

Does Vanoc leave the best legacy, was the money spent the best way it could be??? You know what I dont know! But what I do know is that I have more respect for people like Covenant House who worked with Vanoc and got their slice of the pie and got 34 new beds for homeless youth than those who stand at the skytrain and yell at the "corporate sell outs" who volunteer their time for the olympics!

Its coming and you can't stop it...why not get excited and join the rest of the world in the celebration. Lets celebrate that for a few weeks every couple of years the world stops and rejoices together for a short period of time!

I was super disappointed tonight to hear of people posting photos of the opening rehersal! You konw what that means right. It means good people who take their cell phones to the rehersal so they dont take the bus home alone at night without a phone will have their phones confiscated at the next time they try to go through a security gate.

Thanks for ruining for the rest of us you ass!!

Thousands of people have been working hard to keep this an awesome and wonderful secret from the rest of the world for months and months! You were invited by someone who has been keeping the secret because we thought you would be excited and we could trust you!

SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 1/2 days to go people!!! enjoy the games and try and do something fun! Watch the ceremonies on tv if you dont have tickets, it will be AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris and I are also going to check out a medal ceremony with Paul Brandt and Our Lady Peace!!! SWEET!!!!

Can't wait to see the torch in my neighborhood on the 11th. Get in the spirit Vancouver, its here whether you like it or not!

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…
