Shaken Not Stirred

There is a show on National Geographics about mail order brides. This fascinates me, not because I would like to order one, but because I don't think I could ever do this, even if I was uber lonely. I'm still getting to use to the fact that some of my friends have met their significant other on-line, thru some of those advertised dating/match making sites. But so far, it was worked for some of my friends. They have found the love of their lives, and a few have even married them. Happy endings.

I guess it's no different than randomly meeting someone in a bar, meeting someone in class in college or accidentally bumping into someone and knocking a stack of papers out of their hands (yes, I know cheesy). You meet someone on line, you chat awhile, you end up talking and then eventually meeting for dinner and voila, you get married.

It is just a different way to meet someone. In some sense, I'm old fashioned. I still feel like you meet the love of your life while plastered and puking your guts out and having made a complete tool of yourself....

Just Lazy

I'm still around. I've just been lazy. And these hot summer days are not helping the matter. It seems all I want to do is talk about how hot it's been, how unbearable being outdoors has been. I am not one for tropical weather. I've never liked the beach--for as long as I can remember. I've never liked going below the North Carolina/South Carolina border. So this stifling heat is driving me indoors.

You would think that being trapped indoors would give me time to write a little post every now and then. However, being indoors and sedentary, has made me lazy. I do get some reading done. I'm almost done with The Hunger Games trilogy. And I've read some other interesting books as well. I've watched a lot of movies on Netflix and I've also gone to the gym and exercised. So the summer isn't a complete waste. However, the weather is driving me crazy.

Bring on the fall!! And college football season!!
