Thong Th Thong Thong Thong ...

Guess what the song is called that the bridesmaids are walking down the aisle to at my sister's wedding?

~ ~ Air on the G String ~ ~

I couldn't make that up if I tried.

rrrrufffff

Apparently hot friend is out. Jae wants a puppy instead of a boyfriend. Who can blame her?

Hair "Down There"

Last night my sister made a comment that you could see everything under my pajama shorts and that it was super hairy. It is NOT!!! Give me a break if I was too busy studying this week to do any hedge trimming. Not like anyone's seeing it lately anyways! And it was only a few days worth. She's a hairdresser, she should know better! And I still refuse to wear panties under my pj's.

Blast from the Past

I love Facebook. I love just how when I've given up on guys one randomly always pops into my life.

I had a friend (we're not friends anymore... we "broke up") that I used to always double date with back in high school. We went through probably 3-4 different sets of boyfriends always double dating. One of them added me to FB the other day.

We got to talking and realized that back in grade 10 we both had huge crushes on each other. Chatted for a while and he was super funny and nice. (Which was funny, 'cause I didn't remember his personality at all from back then, just his looks.) We started texting too, all day every day, and decided to meet up.

I went downtown and met up with him and we went and watched the Celebration of Light (ya, I think thats what it's called now.) We were on the Milestone's patio, which is the way to do it, I tell ya! We got along, and he was kinda cute (but looked totally different than 8 years ago.) After that we went to his place and watched tv on his computer and cuddled. On the way home he texted me that he really wanted to kiss me. I was like "haha maybe next time ;)"

We met up again with some friends on Saturday and watched the fireworks from his rooftop balcobny. It was great, there's a pool and everything and I drank a whole bottle of wine. I kinda realized that nothing was gonna happen between us, and at one point I stayed there and he went to the bar... but Jae did seem to hit it off with his hot friend. We'll see where that goes.

Newfie Update

After the date with the guy who seemed to love me and never called I was super confused. After 2 weeks I figured I had nothing to lose so I emailed him to see what the deal was. This is what I wrote:

Sooo... it's been about 2 weeks now and I haven't heard from you. I'm a smart girl, so I can take a hint but one thing is bothering me, only because I'm a super curious person that needs to know everything. That thing is why.

Was it my "anger issues?" Do you think I'm ugly? Do you think I'm a bitch? Was it because I didn't stay for a bit at your place? Did I make too much fun of you? Did you find a new gf? I thought we had a good time and you seemed pretty into me. I just really don't get it.

I kinda thought that after writing back and forth for a month we'd at least be friends. I actually miss the long-ass emails that make me sit and laugh out loud. But this isn't me trying to start up communication again if you don't want to.

I would just really for you to please tell me why, for future reference. We all make mistakes, and I like to learn from mine.

I'm a big girl. I can handle honesty.


I had no idea if I'd hear back from him or not, since guys avoid confrontation like the plague, but a few minutes later this came through:

Honestly hunny you have it all wrong!

I was actually feeling really bad about how long it's been since I've contacted you. I've been retardedly (abnormally even) busy with my birthday week (seriously, haven't had a night at home since we hung out), but even then I should have called you're right.

To be 100% honest, I was just waiting for me to find the right truck, so I'd be able to come out there and not have you have to drive in. I thought it would be like 2 days, but that turned into 2 weeks (and is probably gonna be for another week now gahhh). You sent me a message that said "so when you coming out to Langley to visit me"...so in my mind I thought that I couldn't write you back until I had, you know, AN ANSWER on that haha. Stupid I know. I should've contacted you like a day after we hung out, regardless of me having transportation.

Please consider that 100% my dumb fault. You're rad.

I think your anger issue was cute. I think you're beautiful. There were a few times when we were hanging that I felt liek I was staring so I had to stop myself. I don't think you're a bitch. I didn't find a new gf. You didn't make fun of me too much.

I will admit, I did find it rather sudden that you wanted to take off instead of hang out with me. I'm sure you just thought I was being a "guy" and wanted to try to hook up, but that's not it at all. After we had the wine at Lickerish I thought we were gonna go back to my place, hang out and then as soon as we walk in the door you're like "I'm gonna get going"...I was wondering "did I do something wrong?". I thought 100% that I was in "friend" territory there and you didn't like me at all. I mean not to be a doucheberry but I was at least thinkign I'd get a good night kiss on the cheek haha.

Please don't beat yourself up or anything, you're great. I'd love to rekindle our talking and hang out again, but to summarize, I felt:

1. that you only liked me as a friend
2. that I should be a man and be able to go out there

That make sense?

Write me back. If you can't forgive me for being a dumbass I 100% understand.

Again, I apologize, you deserve better. If you decide you wanna give me a second chance, let me know.


So yeah... I was like hmmm ok maybe I should give the guy a chance. So I wrote him again:

Well, I'm glad you wrote back. I totally understand your points but I have to say that you over-analyze things like a girl :)

I'm also glad you admit that busy isn't an excuse for not calling.

Even if you don't have a truck yet I could have come to see you again. If you NEVER planned on having a vehicle it would be different, because it's a huge turn-off having to be a guy's chauffer, or driving to see someone all the time and they never make the effort, but I can understand that you are looking and haven't found one yet.

The reason I didn't stay and hang out was that it was like 1:30 already and I was tired. If I hated you I would have been like "Ok well I should get going" a LOT earlier than that.

As for the no kiss... Well you were the one that gave me the quickest hug ever and then dissapeared. I'm pretty sure you could have gotten a cheek kiss if you had lingered a little haha.

Also... I don't really know what to say about the friend zone. You are the one that said you don't even think of a girl another way until you start as friends. All I know is that I enjoyed hanging out with you, whether its as friends or more. And I definitely wanted to hang out again, and see where it goes.

Anyways I'd like to hang out again. Gimme a call whenever and we can figure something out. But you SO owe me. I'm thinking flowers... or a massage... or both :)

Danielle

ps. I like lillies and orchids ;)


After this I didn't hear from him for another week. And did he write back? No. He messaged me on that new little Facebook chat thingy. And I was kind of a bitch to him. He was like "What are you doing this weekend" and I told him I was busy studying for the next 3 weeks. He was like "Um ok talk to you in 3 weeks then" or something like that. I knew I was being bitchy, but I'd reached the point of that I had spent too much time waiting around for him and I didn't really care anymore.

I just saw his Pemberton pics though and he looked pretty cute. Oh me!

UCLA Study

A very interesting study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

For example: If she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features.

However, if she is menstruating, or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest while he is on fire.

No further studies are expected.

Baby on Board

We all know that I spend a lot of time driving on the freeway. Well, I have a new pet peeve.

Lately there are people everywhere with "Baby on Board" and "Baby in Car" signs in their rear windshield. First off... Where are all these babies coming from? Well I know WHERE, but I mean what is this, baby boom #2?

The signs aren't what bugs me. Or the babies. What really yanks my chain (I was looking for a good way of saying pisses me off withough saying pisses me off) is that the people with these signs on their cars drive like dangerous assholes.

Yep, you should definitely cut me off, and because of the sign I shouldn't rear end you. Speeding and cutting lane to lane? Totally safe... You have a SIGN! Why warn other people to drive carefully if you are going to drive like an ass. It's YOUR baby... protect it dumbass!

Just as bad are the people who smoke with their kids in the car. Doesn't matter if the window is down. Go ahead and give yourself lung cancer, but please, please keep it away from the baby!

Friday night Date night

A few fridays ago I went out on a date with this guy. Well, we said it was as friends, but it was pretty obviously a date. He's pretty cute, 27 years old, went to McGill, smart, funny, is from Newfoundland. (No accent.)

I met him at his place downtown. We parked my car and then decided that since it was such a gorgeous day we'd just walk around English Bay and get some gelato and something to eat and drink. We also got the chance to watch a huge herd of people on bikes ride around. That was kinda cool.

He was a total gentleman. He carried my coat around for me, and held it to help me put it on when it got chilly. He paid for everything. He offered my his arm to link while we walked. He held doors and even my chair for me.

I thought we had a good time. We talked about past relationships, how we don't want booty calls, how Vancouver guys are useless and can't even change a tire, he even asked me what I want to name my kids. (His were Cecelia for a girl and some Edjj-a-ma-something after some sports dude for a boy... yah, worst names ever.)

He kept telling me how pretty I was and that I had nice eyes and was like "I don't understand how you are not taken by now." At one point I was looking at him and he was smiling and I was like "What?" and he said "This is going to sound totally cheesy, but I'm just smiling because you are pretty." He also kept touching my arm and hand etc, even after he had said that he isn't a touchy person, unless he likes someone. We had also been writing each other some really long, funny, messages on Facebook, and he was like "You better keep writing me those messages, I love them!"

Later on we decided to grab a bottle of wine and head down to the beach. He gave me a hoodie to wear. (Sooo comfy and it was a snowboarding hoodie so it had these awesome thumb holes in the cuff. I'm easily impressed.) Well the liquor store was closed, so we sat on a patio on Davie and people watched.

Around 1:00 we decided it was time to go. We went back up to his place and grabbed my jacket. He was like "Are you ok to drive, you can stay here for a bit." But I was fine to drive and it was late, so he walked me down to my car and gave me a hug.

I never heard from him again. I don't get it.

UTI ?!?

I just saw a commercial on TV for the "Universal Training Institute" or "UTI."

I don't know about you, but if I had a college I'm pretty sure I wouldn't use the same abbreviation as for a bladder infection.

Rudy

Today my mom asked me to help her put on a CD (because she is technology illiterate.)

Apparently her and my dad hadn't listened to any music in the living room for a while, because once I helped her press all the right buttons, what comes blaring out...

"You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen. Comit and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen!"

Random!
