Thats how I feel...actually it was worse words....but my little brother might read it and get mad and charge me two dollars for swearing!

We have had cancer scares in our family, we have lost friends, family and acquaintances and I am so so so tired of it.   The word still strikes fear in my body and makes my blood run cold!   I would do just about anything to help find a cure.

When I was little when we would see a falling star we would wish that "aunty polly would get better" and quite sometime ago that wish changed to "Aunty Sharon would kick cancers ass!".      How silly is that wishing on stars and raging at cancer!

As most of you know, my sister is the perfect kid...and so she has one upped my rage with action!   GO TANYA!!!   She is going to shave her head for cancer!    Her goal is to raise 10,000 by the end of the month and then we will have a party where she will allow you all to watch her shave her head!

 Her husband has not always been totally on board with the bald wife thing, but he is 150% on board with the cause  read his personal story here.

I am so proud of my sister and I hope that I can challenge you to match or exceed Chris and my donation of $100.00.    Many of you know our situation and you know that this is a big deal for us.   We are on a very very tight budget.   This is a huge deal, and every single dollar goes to cancer research (and of course you can get a tax receipt if you are concerned about that).

If you have had cancer, know someone who has, or have experienced any measure of the loss, anger, sadness etc that this diagnoses can bring I challenge you to match our donation!  Go here to make your donation pledge (please don't pledge unless you intend on following through)

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 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!
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


 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…
