Don't like telling family/friends we met on the internet? Here are some great alternatives:
1. We met in the produce section next to the melons
2. We met in church. The minister hardly let us get a word in!
3. We met in the library. We were both reaching for "Relationships for Dummies!" Or "Sex For Dummies," but, really, should "Dummies" even bother???
4. We met in a bar...after each drink, everyones' score increases on the "looks-o-meter!" OK, quite frankly? I'd much rather admit to meeting on the internet! Besides...why would I go to a bar? I am a non-drinker!!
4. We met in (fill in the blank) . . .
Some things that I often ponder
1. Instead of the glass being half full or empty, I wonder why they didn't use a smaller glass!!
2. If it ain't broke, find out why!!
3. I am in shape - round IS a shape!
4. I won't go walking with you on the beach at sunset because the beach is too crowded with people from these sites.
Winter is back despite all my praying, chanting, talking to dieties I didn't even know existed and nothing worked. Like death and taxes - winter comes with an vengeance.
I am still stuck in the northland (Chicago) but have begun my search for a home in south Texas. I plan to relocate in 2013, any time between February and August. I have also begun my packing, so, Texas, here I come - again!
As a frequent traveller, I have witnessed 24 hours of daylight near the Arctic Circle, ate Kimchi with the locals, had bizarre adventures in Russia (even met the real Boris and Natasha), drove along Lake Geneva (and NOT the one in Wisconsin), snorkeled where the fresh water meets the ocean in Xcaret (and Xel-ha) and even took a road trip just to visit Fargo, ND. I have now explored every state in the contiguous US.
To plagiarize from another profile, I have also lived on the five borders of the US. Maine, California, and Texas. These border Canada, Mexico, the "Left Coast" (Pacific), the "Right Coast" (Atlantic), and the "Third Coast" (Gulf of Mexico). Maybe add to that Zion, Illinois (near Chicago) which is right ON Lake Michigan. That is also like a coast.
