April 14, 2009

I visited my parents and family over the Easter holiday.  had a pretty good time. The drive was about 6 hours there, but i had my trusty stephanie plum books on the ipod so the time went by pretty fast.  I decided to bypass the turnpike and  just zig zag thru pennsylvania. I ended up on route 22/322 that followed the susquehanna river for awhile then snaked thru the country. It was a beautiful drive and I’m glad i was up and on the road early.

new apartment

new apartment

I got a call on saturday saying that i was approved for the new apartment i’d applied for – so yay!  i get to live in an old brothel.  you ahve to admit that’s pretty cool.  I’m trying to find some information on the history of the building and will share that as soon as i find something concrete.

broken fingerIn other news, i had to change my last pt session til this thursday. The finger i broke is still really stiff and hard to bend all the way. I’m not sure how long that will go on for.  I’m glad i can move it at all but i would like the pain to go away.

eharmony

April 6, 2009

so. i joined eharmony like a month ago.. didn’t start actually paying for it tho until last week. hey had a good deal for 3 months for $13 a month. that’s a steal compared to their advertised prices. So i thought what the hell, i’ll give it a shot.

within the first month i’ve been rejected by 109 men. That means, 109 men looked at my picture, read a bit about me and slapped a reject stamp across my forehead and closed the match. Two people have actually started communication with me. The first is 31. he sent me questions and I couldn’t answer right away, i couldn’t even see photos because you can’t until you’re a paying member. bUt then last weekend they had a free communication weekend so i quickly sent him a response the minute i could, and sent along my questions.

The firs step in communication is selecting 5 questions out of a list of about 40 to send to the match. these are the 5 questions i chose:

1. If you were taken by your date to a party where you knew no one, how would you respond?
A: stay close to my date, letting him/her introduce me
B: find a spot at the back bar and relax alone, letting him/her work the room
C: strike out on my own, introducing myself and making friends
D: I would ask my partner if I could skip this particular event

2. On Saturday night, would you rather go to:
A: ballet/theater/symphony
B: a professional sporting event
C: a popular new movie
D: the latest dance club

3. If you could take a dream getaway, where would you most likely choose to spend a week?
A: Paris
B: Hawaii
C: hiking in the mountains
D: a cottage by the sea

4. Which sort of date sounds like the most fun to you?
A: attend a lecture on a topic that appeals to both of you
B: go bargain hunting at a local flea market or antique shop
C: go bowling
D: visit a local comedy club

5. If I had a bad day, what is the first thing you would do for me?
for me?

A: Cook you dinner
B: Rub your shoulders
C: Talk with you about your day
D: Take you out on the town

None of these questions are a deal breaker,  I’m just curious to the answers.  It helps get to know what kind of person they are.

then i sent my second set of questions:

1. If you had one day in your life to live over, which would you choose and why?
2. You mention in your profile that you enjoy theater and the arts and that you’ve seen Les Mis. What play or musical is your favorite and why? Have you had the chance to see it on Broadway? Which one do you want to see but haven’t yet?
3. How big is your extended family? What are the holidays like for you and your family?

and never heard back from him again.  It’s been nearly 2 weeks. I sent a nudge, where the system will remind them that they have questions waiting and it shows that he’s looked at my profile since, but no response.

I then decided i’d delete out all the ones that i really wasn’t interested in and then i sent 1st questions to all the rest. That was 25 men.  None of them have responded.  I cant tell you how fantastic that feels!!

so a few more days then i’ll go thru and close all those matches.. if they’re not interested i wish they’d just close the frickin match already.

ive hardly been getting any matches anymore.  i got one last night. was my first in about 4 days.I’m beginning to be very glad i didn’t shell out a shitload of money for this service.  Ill keep you updated.

thar she blows…

being 35&single leaves a lot of time to just sit around and do nothing, which i’m quite good at.  sometimes that nothing leads to interesting places on the internet and in between visiting free porn sites, i think i may have discovered the most disgusting page on the internet.  like a train wreck, i couldn’t stop looking…

and right now, i can feel a giant one festering on my back inbetween my shoulderblades.. just out of reach…

35 & single

April 5, 2009

so i’m 35 and single.  I hope you gathered that much info already.  if not, you shoudl probably leave.  I live in maryland, just north of baltimore.  I come from a relatively normal family. I have 2 great parents who are still happily married, and an older brother.

I was a tomboy growing up, always the 3rd wheel in friendships when I was a kid and have been overweight since the 3rd grade.  I spent my high school and college years in love with my best friend who turns out was gay and knew it all along, Didn’t lose my virginity until I was 25, which was a mistake and I can’t even remember the guys name.. Mark something…   I have never been asked out on a date and have had exactly two “boyfriends.”  “boyfriend” remains in quotations because the frist one lived 2000 miles away in england and i only got to see him twice a year for 2 weeks at a time.  Not really m uch of a relationship there.  And the other would never actually admit we were in a relationship.. apparently I fuck all my friends.. who knew?!

so now i find myself 35 & single. Renting a house that’s drafty and practically falling down from a slumlord who won’t do anything about the fact that i have squirrels living in my attic, walls and in between the floors of my  house, not to mention the giant hole in the roof. I have a job i love but it barely pays the bills.  I’m in debt up to my eyeballs with student loans that I can’t even begin to pay. Oh. and I have ginormous feet.

ain’t life great?
