Since I have about 2 weeks before school starts, I've been doing a few things to keep myself occupied while I impatiently wait for things to start.
So I cleaned the house and did ninety four loads of laundry, and helped my parents clean their house and um......wrote a personal ad for Craig's List.
I was bored a couple of nights ago, and decided I had been dating all the wrong men. I date the same emotionally-detached macho man with intimacy issues and a snarly attitude when it comes to money......so I needed to branch out, and for serious.
So I guess that means you'll be getting more dating stories along with the roller derby insights and the small amount of knitting I'm actually doing :)
Text of my ad is after the jump (and yes, I am wholly and terribly proud of myself for figuring out how to make that break thing. :)
I have no idea why, but my last post got flagged and deleted. So I've reworded some possibly offensive sections and reposted.....let's see if I get flagged again :)
*29 year old semi-nerdy mom of one, going back to school and working hard.
*I sing in the car, the mall and basically anywhere good music plays, but only if I know the words (well, *most* of the words, at least). I dance like a nerd too.
*Got a serious roller derby jones (yes, I skate; no, I won't give it up, and please don't expect me to hook your friends up with a derby girl) and a penchant for movies with subtitles, fast muscley vintage cars and/or big budget action sequences.
*I like to stay up late and get up early (not back to back!), borrowing other people's dogs to take to the dog park, staying in bed and eating pizza and watching Disney movies on a Friday night, or going out to see a new band I've never heard of and may not necessarily like.
*My favorite colour is red, I'm an aquarius, my favorite flower is a Teddy bear sunflower, I don't normally eat red meat (unless it's just one of those days), I am allergic to lilies and I only take 15 minutes to get ready unless it's a "fake eyelashes, stilettos and fishnets" kind of outing, and then I need a little more time.
*like kids and dogs, and can at least tolerate roller derby and corny slasher flicks.
*can boil water to make your own pasta (advanced cooking skills are nice, but not required)
*are not currently a frat boy (no offense...I love my.Sigma Chi boys, but...) and understand why scratching your bum or rearranging your junk in public is not appropriate.
*can laugh at "Harold and Kumar" but appreciate "Across the Universe"
*know how to sweep a girl off her feet, but understand I don't need that all the time and don't expect it all the time
*understand I'm not your beck and call girl, and I can't drop everything to go out in 5 minutes. I know you have a life too, so I don't expect you to do it either.
If you fit the bill, drop me an email and tell me about your favorite childhood memory and we'll go from there. Please don't send a cut and paste reply.....you know who you are, you're the guy who starts his introductory emails with "your ad caught my eye and I just *had* to respond...."
I don't care if it's just a paragraph, or even just a sentence. "Make a good first impression" my gramma used to say....a carbon copy of what you write *every* woman on Craig's List is not one.
