...but it just don't work on you (Part TWO)

Posted on June 29, 2009 at 4:00pm 2 Comments

(FYI- Part One "Got my mojo workin'" of this post can be found at the Sol site).

I realized that I've been blogging primarily my success stories. Don't fear - I've had my fair share of failures, too. They're just brief, and don't warrant much conversation. But here SOME of them are, in all their glory.

1) The time I took advice from my readers and tried to find people in places that hold common… Continue

Fearlessness. The antidote to a flocculent life.

(I won't lie- I've been using the word flocculent every chance I get lately. Even when it barely makes sense. Blame M.)

I received an appropriate gift today. A book entitled “The Year of Yes” by Maria Headley. This woman blows my sol out of the water. For an entire year, she goes on a date with everyone – regardless of looks, gender, etc. - who asks her out. I can’t wait to read it. Like me, she does it more out of a need to change her own views than to find a mate (or so I gathered… Continue

On second thought...

Hello! since my last disgruntled post of the Summer of Like, I fostered a puppy and got it adopted (hooray! hurray!) I went to a modern dance show - wild dancing west, week 2. I danced until I dripped sweat at Burt's Tiki lounge on a Thursday night for the first time. I also went to Sophia's place for breakfast for the first time- yummy yummy blue corn pancakes. I asked out no one. And had a restful week.

Sunday I had a revelation.… Continue

Summer of Like's Winter of Discontent

Okay DCF- I’m asking for your help…but I’m not sure what the question is exactly.

I am going through the terrible two’s of the summer of like. Friday night, I went out – grudgingly- to Monte Vista Fire Station. I got there late, drank some club soda, and left early.

Sunday, I literally had to drag myself out of the house. I decided to go to a coffee shop to read and maybe make a new friend. Instead, I ended up having to leave within… Continue

Rationalizations & rule breaking: week 2

Posted on June 3, 2009 at 11:00pm 0 Comments

Sorry it has been so long since my last update on the Summer of Like. As predicted, I've already encountered some problems. First, I broke rule #2. But there were some extenuating circumstances- I've been housesitting in the south valley, and have fallen into a deep void of large, flat screen HD cable TV, and 2 lush acres of gardens and orchards right on the river...can you blame me for wanting to stay in? I also had 2 out-of-town visitors last… Continue

This tiramisu gelato doesn't really taste at all like tiramisu, does it?

I think we might have to have a few more "Single Life" meetups if for no other reason than to assist you in your quest.
