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

(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 interest.I went to Stone Age climbing…See More

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 from my 30…See More

Norm Ollestad reads and signs Crazy For the Storm: A Memoir of Survival at Bookworks

June 18, 2009 from 7pm to 8:30pm
This book is the Starbucks Book Club pick for June! It would be a great Father's Day gift.From the age of three, Norman Ollestad was thrust into the world of surfing and competitive downhill skiing by the intense, charismatic father he both idolized and resented. While his friends were riding bikes, playing ball, and going to birthday parties, young Norman was whisked away in pursuit of wild and demanding adventures. Yet it were these exhilarating tests of skill that prepared "Boy Wonder," as…See More

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

Posted on June 7, 2009 at 10:40pm 12 Comments

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

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.
