Do I downsize to a small little car or keep the SUV?

Please discuss.

The Facebook Phenom

OK ... I'm weirded out. Social etiquette on the Internet can sometimes be mind-boggling. Well, life can mind-boggling, and it's just made excruciatingly weird with the introduction of the WWW.

Scenario: One of my ex-husband's old best friends "added" me as a friend on Facebook. Does anyone else think that this is weird? (Azu & BG - it is NOT the ronmeister) I mean, honestly, he liked me better. When the rat bastard *cough* I mean ex left me, he did tell him to go back to me because I was the best thing the ex could ever have. He did call me after it happened and told me that he thought it was awful and said to call him if I ever needed anything.

Scenario: Every person that works at my company that is on Facebook is adding me. A little weird that it's a social network and everyone seems to be adding people left and right. Kind of creepy actually because some people I don't necessarily want to be "watching" me.

So, am I really strange or can someone PLEASE give me a run down on socializing on the Internet. WHAT am I missing here?

Check It!

Two posts in the same month. I know. You're all freaking out! Woo hoo ... a whole new world.

I've decided that I must be a certain brand of crazy. I am moving back -- or at least in the process of moving back -- to my old house. I am hoping to make the last of my trips this coming weekend. Then, I need to get a life -- a social life that is.

Anyone up for going out and doing something fun on Saturday? I'm not sure what going out anymore is so I'll need some awesome suggestions, but doing anything with anyone I know sounds absolutely stellar to me.

Oh, and I finally figured out how to get on Facebook and actually make updates. OooOOoOoo check me out. Moving up in the world. Haven't done anything extravagant in there like actually posting my picture, but one of these days!! Oh Boy!

My shocking records of the week:
1. I cooked!! I was so excited. I actually made a fabulous meal and ate every last morsel. I can't remember the last time that I even had TIME to cook. As much as I moan and groan about having to move, I think I'm actually excited!

2. I went to the Bean Museum with my kids, and we didn't have to rush home so that we could actually get in bed before 10pm. We were at the museum for almost 2 hours and still were home before 8pm. Oh no, another sign I might like this move back.

3. I filled my entire gas tank for significantly less than the *choke* normal $100!!! AND I only drove 88 miles TOTAL last week.

Love to the masses!!!

I heart New York.

I used to love New York ... one of my favorite places. The more I come, the more I realize the city has lost a little bit of its charm for me, and it won't ever be THE place I want to live anymore. Sad. Although it kind of shows me that the things I want in life have changed. Don't get me wrong -- I'll always heart New York, and I'll always remember the fun times I've had, but I don't really want to go back.

Unfortunately, it feels like limbo. I feel like I'm in limbo. If this happens, then this. If this happens then this.

I hate "ifs". I've never lived by ifs before, and now it feels like that's all I have. Hmm, changes need to happen. What can change to make the "ifs" go away?? Nothing! It's all about time. So, until the "ifs" become yeses or nos, I will keep you entertained with these tidbits:

Scoop 1: An illustrious Brit is coming to visit me in January. Not the one you might think it would be, but another. Which seems to indicate I have a random fondness for the motherland, or just an insane desire to always have utterly doomed long distance relationships. You decide. All I know is that I MIGHT have a date in January.

Scoop 2: Another illustrious Brit (yes, this is the one you might think it is) has also said he is thinking of coming over in January or February. No, I am not delusional. He may or may not come. In all likeliness, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't, but I would probably be shocked if he did :)

Scoop 3: I tried online dating. Embarrassing to admit. Sad experience. I was trying to be honest and gave myself a 7 for looks so that I could be paired with other cute, but not necessarily hot guys. All I need to say is that people on the Internet apparently don't have a mirror or a grip on reality. I think I'm a 7 out of 10 (and I thought that was generous), but if the matches I got were any indication, I am probably more like a 9 or 10 from the "Internet" rating game. If you are wisping your one strand of hair all around, have three gaps in your front teeth, and wear I love hunting camouflage shirts, I am not so sure that we are compatible. I take baths.

Scoop 4: I was rejected for Speed Dating. I'm too old. I feel ostracized. I just might be young looking enough to pass, but should I? I told my friend Anna that I would go Speed Dating with her. You have to sign up online before you go. I went to sign up, and it's only for people up to 30 years of age!!!! Seriously???!!?? She is 29. Sad. I am even ex-ed from Speed Dating. She is very shy and now will not go by herself, so I said I'd lie about my age because I'm pretty sure I won't get a date from that either. Is that wrong?

Those are the tidbits for the hour. Come back as I prepare more.
