Now that's a first . . . and Mama Kat

Hey! I just got my first spam comment! Does this mean I'm on my way up?

This week has been l o n g. I've really been pushing it at the gym, and I think I've hit a wall. When I get home it's all I can do to take a shower and crawl into bed. I was looking at my calendar last night and I have something every single weekend between now and the middle of February. Whew. It's enough to make you tired just thinking about it!

And, it's Thursday which means it's time for Mama Kat's writing assignment. I've had an idea for this for a post for a while, so better now than never, right?

Before I left for college, a friend of mine turned me on to chat rooms. I remember sitting up til 4a, talking about all sorts of things with people all over the world. Once I got to college, I convinced Msh, that we needed to have ICQ (I seek you) on her computer. I met a few interesting people, and it turned out, one of them was going to be in the Star City, and would I like to meet? After conferring with my roommates, we determined that, sure, why not? Well, once we got to the mall, our set meeting place, Msh and our other friend went in to scope the scene out. That's what friends are for, right? This was prior to the days of cell phones, and they couldn't get to me quick enough to warn me. The guy who had told me he was 5'9"? He might have been 5'5". And, was nothing like what he had told me. Now, Mama raised me to be polite, so I figured I would give him a fair chance. The deal breaker came, though, when he asked me if I liked his shoes. Errr, I reckon? "Well, I found them on the side of the road, and they fit! Can you believe it? Look how much money I saved!" And, with that, I was outta there! Internet dating . . . it can be a scary place! Now, to be fair, I've met some really nice people, but for every nice one? There are a dozen "what was I thinking" out there, too!

Tune in this weekend - I'll have to put of pictures of my most successful blind date . . . that boy was yummy, and he bailed me out of a sticky situation!

I'm playing with Mama Kat . . . come play too!

Those chat rooms are dangerous places! LOL. I spent my of my time during college in chat rooms. I met a couple people. Even got engaged to one of them. It didn't work out. It couldn't handle being 4th in line for my time. Between my daughter, college and my job, it just wasn't the right time.

Ooohh, internet dating, not sure I could do that. You are pretty courageous.

Lol, hilarious. If any man asked me if I liked his shoes, I wouldn't even respond. I'd hit the road running. What man really cares about his shoes?

What's with the shoes? Was he trying to get you to notice something other than his small stature?

I met my husband online...sometimes it does work out! ;-)

Lacey said...

Haha, that's hilarious about the shoes. Like... "Hey! Look! I'm cheap! And am possibly growing foot funk as we speak! Hoooorrrraaaaay ME!" Right?

I would have been out of there too! :D

LIke Oprah (or is it Dr. Phil?) says, "When people tell you who they are [by their actions], believe them." Good thing you saw the light right away!
