Blind Dating

So what exactly are the merits of blind dating?  I know this girl would say blind dates are awesome, but so far, I haven't found that.  I'm not suggsting they haven't been fun, they certainly have been.  And I will definitely continue to go on them.  I just wonder if they are all they're cracked up to be.  I certainly haven't any horror stories like all the rest of the people I've talked to and I am grateful for that! another attempt to discover the merits of blind dating I am going on one tomorrow.  I'm actually really excited about this one!  I'm not really sure why this one in particular has got me wanting it to be Friday already, but we'll just go with it and see how it goes!! 
Hopefully not like this...

As I sat in the JFSB today working on my ridiculous paper I have to present on Friday I couldn't help but observe the people around me.  I am a big fan of people watching and could seriously spend hours doing it, but today I was shocked by several of these people's behavior.  I sat in the 2nd floor atrium near the elevators for about 3 hours.  In all that time I saw about 15 people take the elevator down to the 1st floor!  There is a perfectly good staircase right by the elevators (It's even fun to walk down because it's circular!) but no, groups of people stood and waited longer than it would have taken them to walk DOWN the stairs, for the elevator.  Am I crazy or is this the epitome of lazy!? It wasn't even UP, it was down, one, singular flight of stairs!!

I have a confession to make.  I am a country dancing convert.  I'm not ashamed of this fact, and although I'm still new to this whole new world, I'm in love with it!  "Rootbeer boy" asked if I wanted to go last week and being the spontaneous person that I am, I agreed! (ha!)  It was a great motivation to get my homework done super quick so I could go play, it was like being in elementary school again, reading faster than comprehension so I could see my friends!  For the most part I did pretty well, if I do say so myself.  It's intimidating to go with a group of people that have been going for ages and you're the fresh meat, but they were all so good to take it slow and teach me how.  I was thinking it would all be line dances and I'd feel completely out of place, but it's totally not like that!  There are the basic steps but after that, you just follow the guy.  And let me tell you, there is nothing more attractive than a guy that can dance, and dance well.  I love that it's actual dancing and not just the jr. high version of swaying.  I met some new friends, and only got dropped on my head once!  I went again this week and am falling more in love with it!  This week the casualties were a little worse however. Instead of just getting dropped, I got elbowed in the face!  Super hard.  My chin is bruised....but at least it's not broken! I seriously think country dancing is the most fun I have had in a very long time! 

Looks like I'll be pulling these out more often!!

Brad Pitt Syndrome

Have you ever noticed that Brad Pitt in Ocean's 11 seems to ALWAYS be eating? Watch it again, you'll see it. I'm not sure if the directors planned that, if he was particularly hungry all the time or if it just happened, but it's there.

While it's funny in the movie and provides great entertainment to the masses, it's not a good feeling when its you.  This is my Brad Pitt Syndrome: I'm always eating.  I feel like the fat kid in the back of the class with my backpack full of snacks!  I'm on a constant eating schedule due to a digestive tract issue...I need my gallbladder removed. Nothing too exciting, nothing majorly harmful...just extremely annoying!  I'm eating at least once an hour and every time I pull out my snacks I think of Brad Pitt.  At least he's easy on the eyes!

**The real issue with all of this, is that certain foods make me sick at different times.  I can eat a peanut butter sandwich one day and be fine; eat the same thing 3 days later and it'll make me sick-I can't figure it out!  I have completely sworn off Chinese food, however. That makes me sick all the time.  Also Macaroni 'n Cheese and tacos...its an ever-growing list!
