The NUMBER Games (Get it..I replaced Hunger with Number?)

So, the other day, over drinks (OBVI!!), my friend and I were discussing our (ugh, our….can you really even bother to call these guys our…blerg) “men” situations. Which led to us discussing, what else, but the only way we seem to communicate with members of the opposite sex nowadays..TEXTS! Which led to us both actually reading out loud our text convos (with voices and inflections, of course) to each other. Which led to her noticing that the dude’s number was NOT programmed into my phone…
WHY, might you ask? Because of…THE NUMBER GAMES! (my attempt to make an allegory of this situation to the hunger games…bare with me).

Presented without Comment…or Smell….

We think it’s one of the funniest things in the history of mankind. Even the idea of a fart makes me laugh. Saying the word ‘fart’ makes me laugh. I have iFart on my phone. I have remote whoopee cushions. Farts. To me, there’s nothing funnier.”

The Panic Button

Have you missed me? Have you been checking and rechecking my blog wondering where I went? Hoping to know if I was still sad and single (I can assure you I am!)? Have you been lost without my ramblings of singledom to get you through your days? Well, I’m back! And I apologize most loyal fans (cough, friends that I guilt into reading, cough)…for I never meant to make you feel like the girl who just texted a guy and is then sitting and staring at her phone wondering, “Why did you do that, Stupid?!” Continue reading

I’m Either Really Picky, or A Wimp

So for you long time readers of mine (we live in the age of 140 characters, so long time means reading to the end of this sentence basically), you might remember a few weeks ago a asked for some dares. If not you can read it again here: I Dare You..to Send Me a Dare!

Well, one such reader DID actually send me a dare:

Dear Singlegal
I dare you to…walk up to the next cute guy you see (in a bar, on a bus, in a whole foods parking lot, etc.) and ask him out. or at the very least, give him a sexy smile and wink and slip him your phone number. (i’m nice with my dares. i give you options).

just fyi if you find your future husband this way, i am totally taking all the credit…

signed,
law student in love

Well, everyone….this was in fact sent to me on Wednesday, July 6th. For those of you not at your iphones or sitting in front of your icals right now, that was two whole weeks AND a day ago! And guess what? I really haven’t seen any cute guys that I have wanted to go up to. Or have I? And am I just the biggest wimp in the world, and I convince myself not to make a move? And for that matter, what’s holding me back?

If only this children's book could give me dating advice!

I don’t really know, but maybe but exposing myself to the world the few people who decide to actually click on the links on my facebook page because they are bored at work as well, will actually force me to go up to a cute guy sooner rather than later. And not psych myself out in my head.

And another note, I will take more dares. Feel free to send them. I will actually (eh..who knows? I hope so…embarass me enough in the comments and I will!) try to do them, so think out of the box and tweet, email, comment below and force me to put myself out there in the world!

Rewritten Romances- 21st Century Blahhhhh

I was watching some generic romcom the other day…actually not generic, quite classic in fact…My Best Friend’s Wedding. But while I was watching it got me thinking about technology and romance. For those of you that love the movie as much as I do (Jambu 2002!), you know that there are a few scenes that hinge on technology…well the technology of the time.

Everything about this photo is large and in charge...the hair, dress, decor, and most importantly, the cellular device.
