2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,500 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.

Single Woman Needs a New Toy

For days I’ve been trying to figure out what I could write on the subject of Christmas. For some single people it’s depressing due to having to face family members who ask why you’re still single. I don’t get that. My family knows why I’m single. I have been quite vocal about the men I have met and why nothing seems to materialize from it all.

Today is Boxing Day and I’m quite sure the stores were rampant with people buying more crap they don’t need just because it’s on sale. I even ranted a bit about consumerism and commercialism on Facebook.

It wasn’t until I got an e-mail from a sex store that I realized there really was something that I needed. I was reminded of this e-mail because I posted on Facebook about my Christmas tree full of gifts. I had wanted to comment something to the effect, “Not in picture: The batteries I bought for myself.” I ended up posting the comment to Twitter since it can handle raunchy better than Facebook can.

My point…I did do a little shopping….and only because I’ve noticed that my “old reliable” isn’t as reliable as it once was. I’m sure there are ladies out there who have had the momentary panic of nothing happening when you press that button and think, “SHIT! What am I going to do now?” We fiddle with it for a few minutes and make sure the batteries are in there correctly and nothing is bent (in a bad way) and finally it fires up. Not a good feeling. I’m totally serious. 🙂

I guess I’ll see what happens in 4 to 7 business days. 😉

It’s hard to sa…

No Way Christian Grey!

As most of you know I tend to write about the people I meet from online dating. Most of which are bad. As of late I’ve taken a bit of a break. This is partly due to the holiday season and also due to there really not being much out there. That being said, I found it necessary to update my profile on Plenty of Fish (POF) with the following 3 things:

1. If your picture most recent picture is more than 3 months old…then you don’t have a recent picture. I update mine all the time and as you can see, for the most part I don’t change except my hair colour.

2. If we start talking and we end up adding each other to Facebook…the last thing I or anyone else wants to see in someone to date is pictures of you and your ex….ESPECIALLY wedding pictures. I’m not saying delete them entirely. Keep them on your computer for your kids if you have to. It makes one wonder if you’re really ready to start something new if you’re holding onto the past.

3. I do not want to hear about or read about how you are like “Christian Grey”….especially if you say you are looking for a relationship. Yes, I have read the book…but I also found the male lead to be a controlling ass who is emotionally unavailable. That being said, being like that character is not something that will get my attention.

It may seem like I’m a bit bitchy when it comes to these updates but seriously I really don’t think I’m too off base in my “helpful advice” and intentions.

Questions and comments always welcome. 🙂
