Amazing date

So I finally met the really amazing woman Cari that I mentioned in my last post and that I’ve been talking to for a little bit over a month now. I was a nervous wreck all yesterday and ended up getting a haircut in Cleveland, TN on my way to Chattanooga because nowhere was open in Hicksville Fannin county. Luckily I made it on time and we went to Cari’s favorite restaurant and had a great meal. Meeting her in person was amazing and she was everything I had hoped for and more. I have to admit that I already had feelings for this special woman and getting to hold her in my arms and just to be in her presence had me with pretty much a permagrin. Lol. Once I got over my nervousness that is.

So we had dinner and then watched a movie at her place and I had an amazing time. Well worth the hour and a half drive each way. I don’t like to jinx things or get my hopes up because they have been dashed many a time, but I really like Cari. She makes me happy and wonder what she sees in an average guy like me. So wish me luck please.


Question of the Day

Why do I continually let people that I know are going to disappoint me keep doing so? It’s not like I’m the greatest believer in human nature around by far. You’d think I’d learn to quit letting Lucy pull the football away by now.

Quick outs

Had a decent weekend in Atlanta. Got to see my buddy Collin and his wife Becky last night. We cooked steaks and watched football. Was great to see them.

Didn’t strictly follow my new dietary plan this weekend: had to get some PF Chang’s on Friday night and didn’t have my daily smoothie yesterday.

Still, my mom had a scale and I’ve lost like over ten lbs already between cutting out the beer and eating better.

My goal is to basically never eat fast food or junk food and cut out as many processed foods as I can. Who would have guessed I’d turn into a health nut?

Dawgs played a sloppy game on Saturday against a team they should have blown out. It was raining so that was probably part of it but if they want to beat LSU this coming weekend they better get some things shored up: particularly special teams.

Next to the last episode of Breaking Bad tonight. I’m dvring it right now to watch in a bit. It’s been an amazing final season.

Wings from McD’s. Yuck.

I hate the smarmy redhead bitch from the Wendy’s commercials.

If you’re a college football fan I highly recommend the book The System by Armen Keteyian and Jeff Benedict. I listened to the audiobook and honestly wasn’t bored for a single minute of the 15 hours or whatever it was. Goes into virtually every aspect of the sport and has some great stories and personalities. Shows both the good and bad sides of my favorite game.

I like the look and some of the new features of the new iOS that they just released with the new phones. Wasn’t sure at first but it’s growing on me

Nice of Facebook to finally not still show my ex on my chat list months after I blocked her.

Along those lines I need to find a new dating site. Had her damn profile pop up earlier on the one I’ve used for years. Of course she was going to be too upset and busy to look for someone new for a long time(sarcasm).

Well, I need to finish up some school stuff. Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Morgan Freeman dead?(he’s not btw)

So that was odd, was just browsing the newsfeed on facebook and someone had posted a RIP Morgan Freeman page or something: saying he died at 5pm today eastern time. I was actually kind sad about that because I’ve enjoyed his work and thought it was odd that I hadn’t heard anything about it, so I went to a few news sites and didn’t see anything about it and finally googled it, and apparently I just got trolled…it’s a hoax.

Anyone else run across this one today?


One of the more fun things about living in the mountains/country is that I can walk outside on my front porch at night and see a bug where I not only don’t have a clue what it is…I don’t WANT to know what it is. That and the day I walked out my front door to see a 6 foot long blacksnake was sunning itself on my front porch.

Themes and Appearance

So I’ve been wondering if I should “jazz” up the site a little bit by messing around with themes and the appearance, but I think I honestly like the simplicity of it. If you’re reading this blog: would it make you more likely to read it if it were more eyecatching? Or does it not really matter at all? Feel free to let me know.

On an unrelated note, does anyone else who blogs on WordPress have a problem with the quick “New Post” button that’s always up on the upper right hand side? It’s the most convenient way to write something fast or post a link or vid, but about half the time the publish button goes gray on me before I can even finish a post and I end up having to cut and paste what I’ve written into the more substantial window off the dashboard to post it.
