So I shared this story with a friend and she said that is was totally blog worthy and I needed to put it on here.

So Yesterday I ran to the Murray library during lunch to pick up a book or two to read over the weekend. I was walking around for a while and as I was getting ready to leave a gentleman at a table asked in halting English if I could help him for a moment. I answered yes, of course. He said that he needed to practice his pronouncation of words and good I tell him if they were right or not. So of course I did. I ended up sitting with him for about a half hour, and we ended up talking about different things. He is from Brazil and has been in Utah for a few months, and is going to school daily to improve his English. I told him it was nice to meet him and that I needed to head back to work. His name is Wilton. When I told him I needed to go he told me that he is at the library most days and that I should come back and see him. I smiled and headed to check out my books. As I got in my car and put it into reverse I noticed that he had come outside and was walking toward me. So I rolled down my window and he asked me if "I like movie". I told him yes I like movies and he asked me if I would go and see one with him. I told him I was busy this weekend but we exchanged numbers and we are going to go see a movie next week.

So I can officially say that I have now been picked up at the library :)

Boys, Boys, Boys

So I have to admit I really like Boys. I don't even have a particular TYPE that I like more then others. I just enjoy flirting and being around them. Though there are definitely some that make me drool when I see them. So I am talking to 3 different guys right now that I have met online. They are all really nice and I like for different reasons. Well the funny part is that at some moments in time I am having 3 different conversations with all of them, through IM or text messaging. And I have to keep straight what I have told how and what they have told me. It can be a little confusing at times. However, highly enjoyable and a great distraction! It has been interesting as I am talking to more men who are in the late 30s and have several children the reasons that their marriages have failed. Some had been married for 13 -14 years and then the wife cheats, or gets into drugs. I know there are a lot of guys doing the same stuff but it just makes me sad how families are being torn apart. For now I haven't met any of these three face to face... but working on that. But it is just FUN to flirt at times. Though being single as a whole is not the best... Guys can be fun :)

Idiot I am!

So I was hanging out with my friend Jordan today. We were driving around, since it was an area he knew better I was making him drive my car. He started playing with the little console compartment and low and behold.... there was a trunk release button..... and it worked. I am an idiot! I did not know I had a trunk release button and because I didn't know this I had crawled through my back seat - remember the story - Oh well. Now I know I have a trunk again! YEAH

Car update

MY CAR IS CLEAN!!! I think this is the first time with this car which I have owned for a year. But probably overall the first time in 3 years that I have taken a car to the carwash. I even have it vacuumed out and others can fit in it. I know... shocker.


So I have been a bit of a slacker as of late. So I went on the date with the Good one that I met from online. Had a great time. Had talked to him most of the week and was really enjoying getting to know him and talking to him. However, it is apparent that he did not enjoy it as much..... cause low and behold, I have not heard from him again. Oh well, he was a good distraction over Thanksgiving.

Antique guy called again out of the blue. I hadn't heard from him in weeks and I figured he realized I wasn't interested. This was not the truth however. Luckily I didn't hear my phone ring. I was at my friend Larissa's house and looked down and I had a voicemail. As I was listening to the message I was making faces.... I did not know this be Larissa informed me of such when she asked who was it. I guess I had the disgusted look on my face. Antique guy said that he couldn't remember if he had told me he was going to be out of town for a few weeks or not but that he had just gotten back and wanted to let me know. Ugh... why do I attract the creepies.

So another fun thing happened this past weekend. Yes I know I am 29 now. And this is the age that all of my mother's friends perpetually were when I was growing up and so I am feeling some what old. So in order to make myself feel younger I was kind of interested in a guy that was MUCH younger then I was. We have been good friends and I felt really safe with him. We have been hanging out a lot but he would never ask me out on a date. So Saturday night I finally got up the nerve. I ask "Why won't you date me?" Yes, this did take weeks of preparation to be able to get this simple phrase out of my mouth. Did I really want to know the answer.... In this case I did. So I think the main reason, which he didn't say is because oh yea.... he is 20 and I am 29! A bit of an age difference. Anyway he said that he really likes me and enjoys being with me. But that we clash in some ways but still wants me as a best friend. Anyway I am totally ok with this and we have hung out ever day since. Boys... what do you do. But again.... the boy is 20! I could have babysat him.... and he would have been in 6th grade when I graduated from High school... What was I thinking.

Oh well....... Now I have to find another way to find boys... Any suggestions?
