This cracks me up...

Lifted from an actual online dating profile: "I have been to all 50 states, except for Hawaii, Montana, Idaho and the New England states north of New York." Dude, that's a lot of excepting! Hee.

In other news, I have figured out why I seem to have a soft spot for Roland Burris, possible replacement for Obama in the Senate: he kind of looks like an older, shorter New Guy. Right down to the glasses. Sigh.

In other, other news: I have exercised every day this week so far--my back twinges a bit occasionally, but seems to be holding up otherwise. I have also not had a single between-meal snack or any sort of creamy indulgence in several days. It's not so much a New Year's resolution as a horrified reaction to the pictures the BFF posted of me on his bacefook page. Wish me luck.

Speaking of luck-wishing, I believe I'm going to redeem my free speed-dating credit next week. God help me. But it's FREE. And there will be free appetizers. And you know, in this economy...

Good weekends, all!

Please tell me you immediately contacted mister-I've-been-to-all-50-states and told him you want to have like 100 of his babies.

WOW! Congrats on an awesome start to the new year. I need to follow suit, BADLY.

Good luck with speed dating. I can't wait to hear all about it.

oh, what i wouldn't give to go to the speed dating session with you. can we take holly and let the comedy ensue?

Veronica said...

Oh PLEASE take Holly. Please video tape it for me. Wait, would this little trip need extra insurance coverage?

I managed to exercise every week day this week, too! And then Saturday came and I decided to eat my weight in cookies and other snacks at a baby shower and move as little as possible all day today. Yay me.

As for that profile... what the heck, dude? If you have that much excepting to do, are your travels really noteworthy enough to include in your dating resume??

Good luck at speed dating. Free appetizers sound great! ;)

stinkypaw, well...you'll have to wait a little longer, as I got notified today that it's been postposed for a couple of weeks. Bah.

pants, I was tempted...NOT. :)

george, now there's a play waiting to be written: "Holly Does Speed-Dating." Bwah!

vee, those poor guys just wouldn't know what hit them, would they?

stef, I know! At the very least, why didn't he just say the old generic "I love to travel" thing? Wait...is it worse to look boring or foolish? ;)

3car, see above re: waiting a couple more weeks for my freebies. ;)

So really, he's been to like 30 states? Weirdo.

Free appetizers sound great- maybe I should sign up for one of these things and then just lurk in the corner! No? Too creepy?

I am also looking forward to the speed dating thing, I am sure there will be much amusement. But will live with the disappointment of it being postponed.

How is that all of the 50 states? Isn't that I've been to a lot of them? Sheesh. Way to say "I'm not very bright," dude. I'm pretty harsh for a non-dater but still...

lizgwiz said...

npw, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought it was weird. Heh.

green, I wonder what other things he weirdly exaggerates about? "My **ck is 9" long...except for those three inches it's not." Hee.

I've been to all 50 states too. Or wait ... No, I guess I've only been to 11. Eh. Same thing.

I'm with Stephanie. I spent all last week working my ass off with daily workouts, cut out soda, lost 3 pounds, and have since rewarded myself with 3 bowls of Cap'n Crunch.
