Scraps of information


Him: “So you drive an old car?”

Me: “She’s not old. She’s experienced.”

Thanks, Matt Kirkland, for killing the magic. But in a most-awesome way.

It doesn’t happen often. But when times are tough, I will occasionally wander over to for some light, soul-sucking reading. Today, I found myself taking a “Whom would you rather date?” quiz, which placed a couple of “hot” young bucks side-by-side, and then let me cast my vote.

Maybe this means I’m completely un-hip, but I didn’t know who 75% of the candidates were. I’ve never watched “Gossip Girl.” I’ve never heard a Jonas Brothers song. “High School Musical” has never appealed to me. But these effeminate, coiffed girly-boys are prettier than I am. Is this the standard of attraction today?

If so, I will remain single, thank you very much. Because if I MUST date someone, at least let him be manly.

Maybe I’ll do another weekend update video. You never know. Stay tuned. And happy Friday.

    I totally agree. Teenage emo swoops are NOT cute, and my man better have calloused hands, less maintenence than me, and the ability to grill steaks, set up a tent and build a bonfire, or at least figure it out.

    Stay true, Annie P. He’s out there. :)

    I wonder if any of those guys had dads around to teach them how to change their own oil, operate a table-saw or chop firewood. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of real men out there who are useful as well as ruggedly handsome.

    PS. Last Saturday, I slept the night in a hammock slung between two trees in the middle of nowhere. How’s that for “Manly”?? ;)
