Blind Date

So this blog comes from the Mama Kat homework assignment and by popular request, this is my side of the blind date story.

I was living in the city, and got a ride home for Thanksgiving from Los's friend who was dating my roomate at the time. As I was going into my parent's house, he said, "my friend lives around here" I said oh, what high school? what's his name? Then i said, I know everyone in Delco! Well, I didn't know my future husband.
So, my roomate and I met her boyfriend and Los at a bar on Janurary 5th. We had the kinda awkward first conversation that went into..."So, how bout that John McCain?" I'm shocked I didnt roll my eyes, turn on my heel, and walk out...I don't talk politics, especially over martinis on a Friday night. So, we hung out and had some drinks, then on to the next bar......

As we walked out of the bar, we were waiting for our friends and I got bored, so i decided to "card" people as they came into the bar. I saw a few peoples id's and said, "Thanks, have a good night." Los looked at me like I was crazy or something.
We then got to the North Star of my favorite bands was playing and of course i was dancing like and idiot. By this time, my roomate got completely wasted and her boyfriend had to take her home, so I was left with Los, who was a complete gentleman. I don't remember too much of the conversation that night because of the crowded bar. I did, however invite him back to my place......

His friend would stay over my apartment all the time but that night since the bar was close to his apartment he took his drunken girlfriend there. So, non-thinking me, decides to ask Los over to my apt. where I think his friend would be and we could all hang out late night. We get to my apartment and nobody was there, so I entertained him with my silly antics for a while and then I offered to let him stay!! I told him we could sleep head to foot but then our genitals are still in the same area...yeah, thats from seinfeld, but so true. He of course said No, and after a while of sitting and talking he left. I woke up the next morning and realized he had to get all the way to the other side of the city to get his the snow!
So, after that crazy blind date night he called one Sunday afternoon and talked for hours then went on our, as i call it, second 1st date, out for sushi (the first sushi place was closed due to a family emergency, what are the odds?) then to a bar where he asked me if he could kiss me and knocked over all the barstools in a row, and that's when I knew I was gonna marry my lovely, lovely Los!

The Bachelor-spoiler

Yes, i'm watching The Bachelor...I need to start counting the candles, fires, and how many times the word, "Amazing" is used. This poor girl below did not get a rose, I think I noticed the look on Jason's face when they were having a romantic dinner and she goes, "I like Bears" then talked about bears and forgot what they were talking about....wooops. Oh well, goodbye Nat!

Happy New Year!

HAPPY 2009! It's been an interesting year, I hope 2009 will be a great year for everyone!
I get pretty bummed when the holidays are over, I don't mind taking down decorations and putting some of the stuff away, but the tree undecorating is the worst, I have so much fun putting it up...having my friends over for snacks and champagne, I guess thats why its so sad to take it down. I may have mentioned we are redoing our basement, so the house has had some random boxes and b.s. laying dont get me wrong, i 'd like to get everything back to normal, but the tree undecorating is the saddest. Do you agree?

New Year's Eve and New Year's Day were a blast, as usual! NYE, we went to Los's brother and wife's house. I played darts and beer pong. Barbra and I did turrible in beer pong and darts..we really need to work on our game Babs! OH, we also drank out of Das Boot...everyone stands in a circle and drinks out of the a big glass's a tradition we do at all parties. We also request guilty pleasure songs to Kurt all month long and have a dance party. I think my favorite one right now is "Don't stop me now" by Queen and then of course, It's raining men and "All night long" by Lionel Richie...which is Los's.

Then there is New Years Day!! Babs and I go to the unofficial 2 street Mummer's parade, which is a blast! There are tons of people walking around with drinks, music, and costumes. We ended up in the bars a little more than we should was either that or hypothermia-It was ridiculously cold out this year. Then of course, we ended up eating a bunch of pork sandwiches from the crock pot, which were delicious, thanks babs! So that was my New Years.

Happy New Year!!!
