Text Me a Date

As the heading implies this is for both guys and gals looking for the perfect date or partner via texting with your cell phone. I bet you have never really thought about this before or even tried it have you?

Well, I can say I never have but then again I’m from the old school where I want to see what I am getting into and not get a shock of my life… if you know what I mean? Plus the added costs involved with texting may put a dent in my bank account and that I want to avoid at all costs!

But let me explain to you how this supposedly nifty little ritual works if you haven’t already tried it.

You decided that you want to meet someone or are looking to replace your present model be it a guy or gal. Well, all you have to do is sign up with the agency for a small fee of about $300.00 and a cell phone is included in the price but then there are rules you have to abide by and that can be somewhat of a drawback.

You have to text with the person for at least 3 months before you can meet-up and no pictures are allowed to be sent; either of you or of the other person thus creating an air of mystery around both of you.
Doesn’t that sound trilling ??

Plus, there is a small texting fee of 0.29 cents per text you send. But that shouldn’t put you off when you are seriously looking for a new partner or replacement. I calculated 6 texts a day x 6 months = $156.60 -> so the person better be worth it.

You start texting with the person and they describe themselves and what they do and so forth. And you can just imagine girls that could be the man of your dreams and can hardly wait to meet-up with him because you have fallen in love with his text messages and feel swept off your feet. Well the time is up and your heart is fluttering and you doll yourself up for the evening and there he is waiting for you at the restaurant sitting at the table and you wonder to yourself “ is that the guy I have been texting with for the past 3 months?”

Somehow, he doesn’t really look like the description he used of himself in the text message or maybe he had been sniffing the cork when he wrote you and so naturally his thoughts could have been somewhat distorted from alcohol. But, you say to yourself “he wrote such lovely texts, so he has to be a nice guy.”
You force yourself over to the table and he is automatically in love with you. Than what???

Save me!!

I am sure you would be able to get yourself out of this with some sort of trusty white lie; like -> oh, I forgot to take the dog out before I came here and I must rush back home right now or else he may crap on my new carpet. Nothing worse than a stained carpet to ruin your evening.

And there you go your evening is saved!

Now guys, you may be faced with a similar problem with this form of dating too. But, no fears either if the gal isn’t exactly what you thought she would be.

You say to her: Just a moment I need my app for excuses and then you can say -> Oh, I forgot today is Tuesday and every week at this time I meet-up with all my buddies at our knitting group, so sorry I have to rush now because I don’t what to miss out on how to knit a pair of socks. And there you go freed from the turmoil of the date.

I really don’t think the gal would believe you but then again it’s better than telling her straight out that you are not interested.

But I could be wrong here with this and maybe you both may hit it off and have a great time and then it’s money well invested. And if that is true then I hope both of you enjoy yourselves together!

Looking for Mr. or Ms. Marble

I never before thought about being in love with a marble statue but supposedly somewhere in the world someone is.
This could be seen as bringing a whole new meaning to the words dating and relationships for guys and gals.

I’ll be somewhat old fashioned and start with “Ladies first” and list the pros and cons of such a relationship.

Pros
Your Mr. Marble never argues with you -> now this is a real plus and saves your nerves and you won’t go gray so fast from arguing with someone.

Never complains -> This is even better because there is no one there to say that dinner is cold or his shirts aren’t pressed right and so forth.

Virtually maintenance free -> never have to do any laundry or clean up after him, so this means more free time to do what you want.

There are many other things too that I could list here but then I would run out of space.

Though there are a couple of cons to a Mr. Marble too:

Mr. Marble can’t talk -> this makes for a very one sided conversation and could get boring after awhile, and because I love to talk; I am not too sure about such a guy.

Can’t take me out ->now here’s a real problem. Just think about it; you reserved a table at a nice restaurant and you show up with Mr. Marble and take your seat and he is seated next to you. Well, don’t be surprised if you get some strange looks, and the worst part is when you are finished you have to pay for the meal yourself, plus you never get invited out by Mr. Marble.

I like to be invited out, so this defiantly wouldn’t work for me!

The worst one is driving around in your car. You have to chauffeur Mr. Marble everywhere and pay for the gas on top of that too. But if you own a bicycle you can put Mr. Marble in the basket and ride around with him and be the envy of all your gal friends.

Still somehow a real guy seems more appealing to me. But then again I never had a Mr. Marble.

The worst thought of all is; what happens when Mr. Marble accidentally falls on the floor and shatters into a thousand pieces??? Will you be able to replace him and is he insured with accidental cover?

Otherwise, there could be serious trouble in your life, unless to deliberately threw Mr. Marble on the ground because you had enough of him and wanted a newer model. Now that’s not bad. No arguing crying or divorce. One drop and he’s out of your life!

Now guys, I haven’t forgotten you here either. There’s the Ms. Marble version who will never talk back to you either and can sit next to you hours on end as you watch sports on TV and never complaining about it. Or just plain o’l cruise around with Ms. Marble in the car and be the envy of all your buddies and the advantage of Ms. Marble is she’s a cheap date.
No more spending money on needless dates that don’t lead anywhere because Ms. Marble won’t lead you anywhere either. Ms. Marble will always have a face of stone so no worries there either.

This whole issue brings you to think that times are really changing and if you want to keep abreast of them, then maybe you should consider in investing in a Mr. or Ms. Marble at an unbelievable cheap price of $19.95 plus tax and a five year guarantee against rust. So rush out now before Friday and pick yourself up one for a stress free weekend.

The Cent is Dead

Again a very sad day has come about in history. The death of the wonderful Canadian cent that will be put to rest and no longer produced.
This is yet again another painful episode in 2012 were our beloved treasures of yesteryear are fading away.

Every summer as a kid I visited my grandparents who had a house on a lovely lake in Ontario and there I would get from my grandfather a handful of those wonderful coins.
I felt like a millionaire with all those pennies in my hand and thought I could buy the world too!
And with my riches we would visit the “Five and Dime” store where I could buy the world with my handful of Canadian cent pieces.

I bought many a great thing with those coins for example great rings or a fan and many a barrette for my hair but the best was when I saved up all my pennies and had a dollar and then the world was mine to have, and that summer with my riches I bought myself a beloved minnow net and spent many an hour out on the lake with my friends trying to catch minnows in my net, and that all with the help of the lovely Canadian cent.

I ask those folks who produce that lovely coin “How can you do that to me?” My childhood memories are only a couple of cents that I have left that I can hold in my hand.

I am sure there are many of you out there with fond memories of the Canadian cent and could cry just like I do at the thought of loosing such precious memories.

Love and cherish your cents that you have because there will never again be a penny made like that again!

Handbags

All you gals know this is something we can’t live without and when we see a newer model it just eats away at our hearts wishing we had that model too.

Handbags come in all shapes and sizes and there’s one for every occasion. I read or someone told me ( I can’t remember) years ago that if you carry a large handbag you have lots of problems and if you carry a smaller model well you know the answer!

Handbags come in all price ranges from inexpensive to ones that cost as much as a car. I ask myself: What do you do with a handbag that costs as much as a car does? Though I do have an idea for example – Maybe set it in the corner of the living room under a glass dome so it won’t get dusty and you can admire it while sitting on the sofa or otherwise, if you use it,it could get damaged or someone could steal it and there you go your cherished handbag with all its contents is gone for good.( A very sad thought indeed.)

Handbags are great things because you can carry around all our beloved possessions inside that we need for our life, and like I just wrote to lose this beloved handbag with its beloved contents would bring tears to my eyes. Worse than being left by your partner!

Handbags are a symbol which says who you are or who you would like to be, either way you want to say something about yourself. And this is a fact whether we would like to admit it or not. And some gals can be very jealous of the other gal’s handbag because they think the other model is better than theirs and they don’t have one like that. I find this soooo stupid because you should be happy with your trusty companion – your handbag.

Just look around you there’s someone with a large handbag with all of life’s possessions in it and probably the kitchen sink too. Then there’s the very small evening bag – I really don’t know what you can fit into it and if you wear glasses you can forget it.

The colors of handbags are endless you can buy one to match every piece of clothing or pair of shoes that you own, but somehow you never seem to have the right color or model when you are invited out on a special occasion, so that means off to the stores to find the one that fits to what you want to wear. I find this is like looking for needle in a hay stack sometimes because the more you look you never seem to find the right handbag.

And of course when you are not out looking for one to buy there is proudly on display in the store screaming out at you “Buy me – you need me!” This can be an especially painful experience when you don’t have the right amount of small change with you to make the needed purchase. I could cry now when I think about the times I have seen that handbag in a store screaming at me and longing that I will be its new owner, but only to say “sorry handbag, I can’t buy you today because I need my money for something else.” Oh how painful and I am sure you gals know exactly what I am talking about.

I feel my handbag is my little secret world where I keep all my prized possessions in it and it is nobody else’s business what I have in it. But I have noticed through the years men are always curious to see what is inside this mysterious bag and want to know what is inside it. But why? I need to do some research on this question and maybe can report back to you with some interesting answers.

Always remember enjoy your handbag because it is your most faithful companion throughout life and because it’s always there by you side through better or worse!

Tomorrow’s the day

Tomorrow’s the day where the commercial sector promotes its products that should express love.
This can set you back a couple of dollars / Euros / pounds (which ever part of the world you live in) if you don’t watch out! What is with this day that makes it so special?

I can remember back in elementary school where we all had to exchange valentine’s cards with each other and see who could collect the most. I must say I didn’t do bad back then but I was by no means the winner nor did I want to be either. I could never understand why I had to send all my fellow class mates a card and write on back of it – love, and my name. I really didn’t love anyone in my class; sure I had friends but to be in love with them that was asking a bit much of me. The teacher saw it as a lesson for us to learn to love. I saw it as a waste of my time writing on back of all those 25 cards and the only good thing about the whole thing was is that we had a little party in class, and so we could eat cake and cookies – now that was great!!

Today as an adult this day has seemingly changed in its proportions and what one expects or wishes based on the influence of consumerism. Really now, just think about it a moment- is my partner going to like me better when I buy him a new tie ( he got one for Christmas), or aftershave ( he got that for Christmas too) – these are some of the not so expensive gifts.
Or do I have to top this to show him that I love him? According to social pressure put on me by consumer advertising I need to go out now and buy him something of substantial value (This I see as measuring love of your bank account not the person) Actually, maybe a new car or boat would do the trick, but again I feel he wouldn’t be content with such a gift. Thus putting me in a dilemma and that I don’t want!

But as I see it I am sure I will come up with something that he will like and enjoy without me going bankrupt, and at the same time showing him that my heart is in the right spot.

I am sure that everyone else knows too what they want to do or give that special person tomorrow. But always remember it‘s the thought that counts and not the price!

Love

I think it is the most wonderful thing in the world and you don’t need Valentine ’s Day to show that you love someone.
You can do all sorts of things to surprise the one you love with such simple things like breakfast in bed or a voucher for a massage from you, or simply being together with one another and enjoying each other’s company.

Love has many forms; it really isn’t just one thing. Love is holding hands and listening to each other while one of you is speaking plus many more things make one love another person. Love can be painful when you have an argument with the person you love or they are ill and you really cannot help them. But somehow our inner strength brings us to still love the other person.

Sometimes the person you love says things that can hurt you and make you feel sad but then maybe if you speak to each other you can overcome the problem at hand.

The joy when two people see each other after a long period of time. Those are the wonderful things about life that’s what makes-up love.

Love is such a wonderful thing!
