A Date…. Don’t be Late!!

Since dating just doesn’t take place like it used to years ago where you actually left your house and went somewhere in the hopes of meeting someone that could be just what you’re looking for and give that person your phone number and hope that they call… Not anymore as I was informed just recently… Life is online and that’s where all the great guys are to be found. That was actually something that I never knew before!!! OMG

But how you go about it is even more fascinating, because there are soooo many things that you need to think about and how to write all that online and so forth is just astounding! But at least I know now what to do if I ever go online to look for Mr. Right. Ok, if I follow the things below I hope that I wouldn’t scare off all those great guys out there, but then again honesty is the best policy… Isn’t it????

I have to make a” wish list”: Ok, I am looking for a guy my age and now what????? Oh, I forgot.. I need a questionnaire for all those great guys to fill-out or otherwise they won’t be put on my “wish list”… Guys have your pens ready!!!

The “score card”: A must after all those guys answered the questionnaire and now I have to rate them … Compared to what… No info available for comparison. Need to do extensive research before the “score card” can be implemented.

Now I need to go “Online”: I didn’t know that you had to go “Online” to participate in “Online” dating… How stupid of me!! I would have never guessed that in a million years… Thanks for the tip!

Oh, go “Shopping”: Now, is that for the guys or is that what I have to do before my first date to make sure I look my best… This here seems to be going to my head… I know I look good, so I guess the shopping has to do with the guys or am I missing something?????

My “profile”: it shouldn’t be toooooo long. I was thinking a short expose of say about 10 pages to cover all the pertinent facts about myself and if you manage through that then maybe you will say…. OMG, now that’s some chick.. Isn’t it???? Good or bad I’m am not too judge here it’s up to all those great guy readers!

Make you “curious”: Now that is easy because in my expose it is full of BS anyway and so you guys are curious about what sort of chick is that… Life couldn’t be simpler

Problem –“Don’t be Funny”: Now my life has just ended when I can’t be funny and laugh. Does this mean that I can’t write any funny jokes or have a bit of humor??? Now my life will be boring, because there is no fun in writing anymore and what guy wants a chick without humor???? Ok, maybe there are a few of you out there.

I have to be “selective”: Doesn’t that go along with my wish list or is that for after I filter out all the great guys that have said that they want to meet me?? And if I am to selective then there won’t be any guys because my Mr. Right is in my dreams and not online…. This sounds complicated to me!

Write using “optimistic language”: Sounds too easy to be true… Where do I start with my cheery, happy easy going, positive personality…. Is that optimistic enough??

The last but most important “ marketing yourself”: I guess that is like sort of advertising saying that I am the best chick in the universe or I should write some other nonsense about myself as if I am some sort of item on sale that comes with a 4 year guarantee against rust or what??? But yes, marketing is probably very important and seriousness should not be forgotten either here. Though I don’t see myself as an object to market… I am just a great person with an over inflated ego.. Now that is marketing!!!

So, should you decide to dabble in “online dating” do take into consideration all those important facts before you jump into the online pond of dating!!!

Gotta Go!!!!

This time I am really speechless as to what is not on offer throughout the world, but then again I am just way behind the times!!! That’s life, I guess……

Now here it is… register your toilet at home online so for the folks who “have to” know where they can go. I am not too sure about this, because do I want strangers popping by saying “Hey, I need to go.” And what happens if I need to go then too and only have one bathroom.. Paying guest first and I have to hold it until they are finished or how does it work????

Or you live in a high-rise apartment building and the neighbors get wind of the fact that you let strangers use your toilet at your place, and how life is and people by instinct are nosy…. there you go half of the building has signed up to say they “gotta go” and you’ve got a line-up outside your door and down the hall and maybe to another floor, because so many people in the building what to see how you live and what your bathroom looks like. Plus, you have to greet each person show them were the toilet is located check to see if you have enough toilet paper or you tell everyone to bring their own toilet paper( money saving tricks) and if you don’t charge a users fee your water bill could skyrocket from all those flushes…

And how long are the people allowed to stay in there??? Need an egg timer, so once you’re over the allotted 5 minutes then a parking meter starts metering the length of time you are sitting on the toilet… I mean really now… I see this as a money making adventure where I can turn my boring bathroom into a cash earning room without investing a major amount of money…

Ok, so someone pops by and says they “ gotta go” … First question to ask: Do you have your toilet paper with you? If they say no then I could offer a couple of sheets for a reasonable fee of let’s say $ 10.00 and show them where the bathroom is located..
I would make sure the user paid a deposit first before entering my bathroom … Cash then go… No cash no go!! Simple as that and send them on their merry way.

What could be stressful for me is that because it probably some App, that means I need my cell phone on 24/7 and if someone decides they have to go at let’s say at 2:00am in the morning when I am asleep…. Sorry, I am not getting up for you!

Again you have someone new in your neighborhood and they have registered with this set-up… well than there is nothing easier then popping by to use the toilet to get to know them!

But I do see a couple of problems that could happen if you are not on your toes… Your toilet is in the same room as the shower & sink… Now, what do you do if the person in there thinks “Ah, I need a shower”, and then takes a shower… Of course they have brought their own soap and towel with them. Maybe turn off the water in the shower before letting strangers use your toilet or what???

I feel this whole concept hasn’t been really thought out and I personally will not be taking part in this whole toilet stuff!

But whatever you decide… Have fun at it!

Computers without Compassion

Somehow computers have no compassion for their owners and think they can do whatever they want to. Devices can be so devilish can’t they?

Ever notice when you are typing away at something and accidently how.. Don’t ask me but touch the wrong key and all that great text that you had been writing seems to have disappeared for no reason at all. And I know in my mind and I am 100 percent sure that I did not touch any key that had to do with delete!!

I think computers sometimes want to make my life very difficult and then there is the language business… Which English do I choose??? My golly I am writing in English and English is English isn’t it… No not according to my computer… It gives me a choice of a couple to choose from. All I want to do is write a couple of simple sentences and not some literary work of art.

But, no my computer has to make some suggestions as to how the word/s should be spelt. Doesn’t my computer have a heart for me??? I say, NO it is just waiting for the moment when I turn my back and it will do some odd thing and my text will disappear or the font will change on its own and I am left at the mercy of this electronic device.

I always try to be nice to my computer and treat it with care and understanding, but I wonder sometimes does it have bad days too???

I think when my computer is having a bad day it seems to make a lot of suggestions as to how my sentences should be constructed, and believe me I do not like the suggestions either. I know what I want to say and I don’t what to write like a machine. I am a human and what to be creative and if my style of writing isn’t according to the computers thoughts… Too bad, sorry computer, but I can be a bit heartless to at moments! I press the button and say “ Sorry pla I don#t like your suggestion. Mine is better!! And look at my last sentence the computer is trying to play tricks on me and make it look like I can’t write…. I wanted to say: Sorry, pal I don’t like your suggestion.

Though computers do have a couple of advantages when compared to…… remember back then the thing called a “typewriter” Now that was really something. You made a mistake and you could not always delete it, but instead you had to get a whole new sheet of paper and start over. And of course you always made a mistake on something that was important that you were typing… or another famous one was you finished typing took it out of the typewriter and started reading it and notice in the middle of the page some spelling mistakes, and then what.. Start over again… But you knew how to spell back then because there was no spell check and your brain held a vast range of words that could be called-up automatically when needed.

Oh the fond memories of the typewriter, and the all time famous one I as a onetime high school student remember was the typing class for girls, were we had to learn to type so many words a minute.. I will admit that was not a strong point for me because I was defiantly not cutout to be a typist. But there were some girls in the class who were faster than light with their 60 words a minute and if I was lucky I managed 30.. So that destroyed my chances of become a career typist. Though I will admit I don’t regret it either.

Yes, times have changed and here we are typing away with spell check, sentence correction and language recognition all in one.

Enjoy typing!
