World Record For Tires....

I'm trying to set a new world record for how many tires you can ruin in a year. Ok, well maybe not a record, but its #5 now. I don't know what it is with me. I just got two new ones this summer. I was on my way to work with my windows down since it was actually not 105 degrees (which in ohio is 85) and I hear a clack clack clacking.

I got to work and didn't see anything in my tires. On my way home from work, I had air in them and a clack clack clacking. Sure enough, I have a giant screw in my tire. So I consulted with the new man who is gonna make me explode with giddiness over his ability to save the day, AND cook, be a fabulous kisser, super funny, cute, a great petter, and masseusse!

Girl: Can you plug a tire with a screw in it, or is that just nails?

Boy: You can plug a screw, I can plug it for you I think I have a kit let me check....

Girl: You can do that at home? I thought you had to go to a shop?

Boy: I have one I can come fix it for you whenever, its not flat is it?

Girl: *swoon*

Look at me Neglecting the blog...

I've been doing things like, working too much unpaid overtime (I'm salary so it all adds up in the end) and preparing for bacheloretting, cleaning, and seeing my new guy. Who's quickly climbing to the top as my favorite guy.

We had our first date last week. Yes, we've known each other for years, and have hung out countless times, and had a "cook you dinner" date, but it was our first time going out officially!

He asked what time I wanted him to pick me up, I said pick me up? I'm so not use to that, I told him that's the royal treatment! I havn't been picked up for a date in years! When he came to get me he put me in the car too which is my #1 favorite boy thing to do for a girl. (this is closely followed by petting, and forehead kisses, which I also have been getting!)

I was so nervous, which seems silly, as we've seen each other naked, and talked about everything from religion, to childhood crushes. I just get nervous! But of course, we had a fantastic evening! One of his friends called when we were on our way home, and he said he had to go because he was being rude being on the phone in front of his....(insert my name here) he almost called me his girlfriend.

This past week, he bought me pillows for his house. Which is pretty stinking cute, seeing how I sleep on a cloud of pillowy goodness at home (I have 8 pillows, I sleep with 4) and he has two, what I refer to as "pancake pillows". So, he thought enough of my comfort to buy me pillows.

Then, he came over, just to fix my bed for me on Sunday, because it's been broken countless times (don't ask me how) and finally took a crap when I was making it. He fixed it for real, and I enjoyed every second. I love a man who will rescue a damsel in distress, and knows how to fix things, and cares enough to offer his help, without being asked. *swoon*

The only thing that I wonder about, is the fact that he does not consume my every thought. I mean I really like him. I love hanging out with him, I'm attracted to him, he's super sweet and funny, and never ever complains about my smelly dog, rather says "it's not her fault" (which it isn't!) and isnt a cat person, but still calls my cats by name, has a couple nicknames for them, and lets them lay on his lap. (the way to my heart is thru my pets, obvy)

My Mom says that's because its a normal healthy relationship. I guess I'm not use to it. That, and the fact that it's not really "new", since he's what i affectionatley call a "re-do". He calls it third times a charm. I mean the relationship stuff is new. But we're not new in a lot of other ways.

I'm just rolling with it. Because I am happy where I am. Still seeing my friends and living my life, and having a cute boy who I really like to hang out with too.

Well new guy had a party on Saturday. This is after spending Tues, Wed, Fri nights together. We then spent Saturday, and Sunday also.

At said party I met his friends, many of them for the first time. We have a lot of mutual friends, but also, friends of our own. Everything went great, and he still talked to me, and kissed me in front of them, and most of them were very nice to me.

While talking to someone, I heard one of his friends say he's having a party in September..."is that your girlfriend?" and new guy said "yes". Then his friend invited me too.

He never mentioned my being his girlfriend to me, because he didn't want to "label" things and before I left on vacay he didn't know "what we were". But I have to admit I liked hearing that!

Microsoft...You can Suck it..

I may or may not have mentioned my extreme dislike for Microsoft 2007. In particular, excel and word.

Now, I've been using said programs for about 10 years ok, more like 15, shut it. New versions come out, you never notice the upgrade, life is beautiful.

Not this time. The 2007 version sucks balls. Every day it takes me on average an extra 15-20 minutes in downtime searching for simple things..you know, like the print button. Or, how to turn your page to landscape, or turn on gridlines...TO PRINT, because now thats two separate options. You can turn them on, but they dont print unless you also check print gridlines.

Today, I merged 15,000 documents using a word mail merge. I wanted to proof random documents, and tried to go to print, and pick random page numbers.

Um...you can't print random pages anymore. I went to the microsoft website, and you can only print pages, if you put the page numbers in the header/footer.

How fucking dumb-ass retarded is that? I have a 60,000 page document, and I can't pick what pages I want to print unless I number the pages. Its a document full of 4 page documents. If I page number it according to Microsoft, itll be numbered 1-60,000.

Someone made an assload of money to piss off a lot of people.

I hate people that say, it's more user friendly too. Because it isn't its freaking retarded.

Ok, thanks!

I was anticipating seeing the new guy during my whole vacation. We missed each other, in more ways than just the obvious.

I told him I bought him a souvenier, and he said he must be special, and he wanted to make me dinner when I got back, because I was special too. I couldn't wait!

He texted me the day before I left, and asked if Tuesday was going to be too busy since I didn't land until 5, and I would be tired from flying, and want to see my pets. (this melted my heart just a little because anyone who understands my love for my furkids has been few and far between) I told him that Wednesday would probably be better for dinner, but I still wanted to see him Tuesday if he wanted to come over around 8....?

Sounds great he said!

He came over bearing gifts, he brought my favorite...sangaria, and some assorted cheeses that he was using to make me homeade mac and cheese the next day.

Kissing him again felt fantastic! He listened to all my tales of vacation, and we had a great visit, and he stayed over on a school night. Which, he's never done, but like I said we missed each other! He told me its been a long time since he's missed anybody....

Skip the part where I returned to work on Wednesday.

Dinner was amazing! He said to come whenever I finished what I had to do, and just let him know when I was leaving. He grilled chicken, and asparagus, and made macaroni and cheese (sorry mom) that was better than my moms! I danced in my seat from its goodness. It was the perfect combo of cheeses!

Then, he asked me wasn't there a show on TV I liked to watch on Wed? I said I'm tivoing everything, its ok. And he asked what it was, I said Big Brother, and he said "we'll watch it" and we proceeded to make fun of Rachel together.

And then, he packed me up a plate of food to take home with me. *swoon*

And it got even better, I got a massage! Like, a really good one!

I asked if it was my birthday or something, and he said that no, I'm just special.

Baby Steps Work!..

weeks ago...

Girl: Your sign is a scorpio. I've never dated a scorpio

boy: whats that mean, we're messed up huh?

Me: we fuel each other, and my fun loving saggitarious has to crack away at your shell to get you to come out but once you trust me we are a match made in the stars

boy: that sounds about right..i do have a tough shell..

two weeks ago...

girl: do you think you will miss me when I'm on vacation?

boy: I might...you know, you are cracking my shell a bit.

Yesterday via text ...

boy: Hey sexy lady! Do you miss me yet? I think I miss you! Awe damn..my shell just cracked a little..

girl: Hey cutiepie! I do miss you! I was thinking about buying a lobster cracker at the oceanfront today.

But it looks like I don't need one.

PS I'm working on a killer tan! My sister lives a mile from the beach. It took me 20 minutes to leisurely stroll there.

So in an effort to starty my day off with a little carlo rossi sangaria (I'm on vacation) i stabbed my hand. Everyone uses a butcher knife to open wine. I'll live!

Heres one of my rainman plan shot of NYC. I was there for exactly 35 minutes. It was 35 minutes too long. Hated the runway in the water, if I wanted to land on an aircraft carrier maybe id be in the navy or something.

And there were so many people you couldnt move in the airport, and no one said sorry or excuse me when they plowed into you. The worst part was they posted calories of everything. Id be super skinny if they did that here.

And lastly, it was really cool to see the big city, but I'd take a front porch, pond, barn, and sprawling acres of peaceful

Yes..that is right. The time has finally arrived. I'm going to the beach tomorrow.
Thursday its going to be 97.
That makes me want to cry.
Guess what else? It's scheduled to thunderstorm the entire 7 days that I'm there. Isn't that super awesome?
I'm thinking the rain away. As, I have had to forgoe my tanning for 2 months to afford vacation, and when I come back, that stupid bullshit obama tax will be in effect. Don't get me started on how prejudice the tanning tax is.
Oh yes. Please do tax the sun next, its only fair.
Au Revior!!
