I'll show you a lion....

If I hear this one more time I might offically go ape shit, even though, I'm not sure what apeshit really entails, I think it may be a flailing of the arms and an "ooh ohh" sound followed by some weird jumping and maybe flinging poo. "March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb"

Didn't they shove that down our throats enough in school? Ugh. Shut up.

I spent the morning trying to figure how to fix my privacy settings on Facebook (btw my manfriend is on there, and I think its pretty cute that you can say you are in a relationship with so and so...eek) and what happens? I catch a virus on my work computer. I'm a virus magnet. Even in my real life. What, the fuck? It was that one that tells you you have a virus and to download the protection, I kept saying no but it infected me. An hour later they fixed my computer at work. So, hopefully I am now protected from people who wish they were me, right? Oh, I mean my ex husband and his new skanky wife.

This weekend I went to Circuit City with the manfriend, as they are going out of business. I got this digital photo frame. Look at the retail price of $199.99. I paid $60. I charged it. Nice.

It's pretty sweet, cus you can set music to it. When I couldn't decide which one to get, that one or a kodak...and asked my manfriend he was like, I'm sure that ones good, it's not like you're buying a TV....he was only half paying attention. Then when I started playing with it at home, and he saw that it has a CF card reader, and that I can play MOVIES on it....he was kinda sad he didn't get one. Mmmm hmmm. I can take mine on vacation and stuff. Love. It.

We watched movies on Sunday, while recuperating (him, not me) from partying on Saturday. Dude at the video store saw we had "nights in rodanthe" and said thats a good movie, get out the kleenex. Yea, it sucked ass. In the way that the notebook sucked ass. Like, its good, but there really are happy endings in the world, so why make movies where sucky shit happens? We also got Zack and Miri make a porno so we didn't slit our wrists, and that was really good. They did what they promised, made a porno. We fell asleep watching max payne. Manfriend made us some cheesy macaroni. Oh, and we stopped at Coldstone where I had a peanut butter and chocolate, with reese cups medium sized cup of ice creamy goodness! Whoever invented that place is a genius. I'm probably going to have to do an extra mile a day to make up for it. Worth it!

We also hit up GFS, some food supply place where I got ground chicken burgers, at 150 calories a pop, and a Ginormous bag of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots, for $5.

While I'm not getting married any time soon.....*sigh* (im joking. relax) He did ask me again where we would live should we move in together. I say the same thing each time and that's halfway between our houses. Which is only fair. I said half an hour from your friends and family isnt bad you drive an hour to see me, and he said its cus I'm special. While this was quite cute, I sense some dissatisfaction with having to drive to see anyone else, which is either going to break us, or he'll get over it. I don't love the idea either, but it's a small sacrifice to be with the one you love, and get to wake up with them each day...... *sigh again* Neither one of us should have to compromise that, it's the fairest thing to do.

Eventually you realize that your friends grow up and have families, and don't care so much about kicking it with you every day. And, for someone who also doesn't want to have kids, I would hope he does realize this sooner rather than later. I want to start a life with the manfriend, and save money so we can travel while everyone else is strapped down with their kids. He did mention, that we had cats and a stinky dog together. Which kinda melted my heart a bit.

Is your doggy really stinky?

I hate that "in like a lion" thing, too. Some woman on the news said it yesterday and it upset me. ;)

My dog smells worse than anything youve smelled. She stinks up the house. shes got chronic yeast infections of the ears. Even when they arent gross, they smell.

sacrifices ... tough call. It's obviously easier when both live closer. However, this gives you time to work out other relationship issues before you move in together. This might not be a bad deal at all and when you move in, you might be much more ready than, say, J and I were.

Where I come from, March comes in like a lion... and goes out like an elephant stampede on your head. I'll take this DC winter and shut up about it, thankyouverymuch!

Fizzgig said...

yea, i think that waiting definately makes us think if we are ready for it, since its a bigger change. I've definately moved in with people for the wrong reasons before. Not because I wanted to be with them either. Other reasons. This one, I genuinley love to be with.

I think our laast few marches did the same thing....I really think we've had it easy honestly!

i think it's so cool that you and the man friend are planning things like moving in together.

do it soon, it'll be good blog fodder :)

OMG...I hate those kinds of viruses! So inane. As for manfriend, I'm thinking he'll come around and compromise. He sounds very much in love with you. He may just need some time. As for stinky dog - well, you love her or you wouldn't keep her and honestly, we all stink a little. ;-)
