Day three in sunny Mexico!

So here I sit on day three of our awesome Mexican vacation and we are having a wonderful time! I sit writing my blog this morning In a gorgeous courtyard surrounded by greenery, amazing flowers an the sounds of exotic birds. I can hear people talking and laughing and I am enjoying a sublime version of a mocha with baileys. I can literally smell the sunshine as the morning clouds are burning off and the cool breeze soothes my burnt shoulders!

Today will be an easy day spent at the resort chilling out and hopefully getting into the water if the sun isn't too bright or we can find a nice shady corner to hang out in!

So far we have gone swimming, drank a keg of beer, chilled out, done a bit of shopping, and gone snorkelling! We took an amazing bus ride (only 1 guy actually threw up) to our waiting boat where we cruised on to puerta vallarta to pick up a few more people and then cruised on further to Las Caletis. This is a private beach owned by the tour company and it was picturesque! We traded in our hotel key for some snorkel gear and jumped in the ocean. I gave chris a quick lesson in clearing your mask and how to get comfortable on the water. He was floating around when he popped his head up and with a panicked look on his face he yelled fjfhfhdbxhdhxbxbxbz! I told him to take the snorkel out of his mouth and he told me he had lost his wedding ring. We tried in vain to search the area he was in but to no avail! Some free diver or fish will find it! Later we were able to purchase a new silver replacement ring at the marketplace!

The snorkelling was really nice and we even saw a baby round manta Ray! Chris says he saw an eel also but I did not. I did however once more tangle with my arch nemesis the jelly fish! I had not been in the water more than 15 minutes when I was stung on the thigh! Just a small guy but it still stung like a mother for about 10 minutes or so!

I got a great picture just for Tiffany at work of a GIANT raven sitting on my arm! I also got to hold the cutest monkey!

We have tons of great pictures and sories but I think I'm going to grab a margarita and hit the pool! Talk to you soon!

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…
