Thanks for reading my blog. Both of you. I hope you find some points of humor or entertainment in them, and if you don't, well...email me some! I am always looking for more. By the way, my boss just told me that I'm not sharing enough information about myself. He wants a bio. So, in the interest of any of your curiosity and for a little more job security, here I go:
Hobbies: Radio. Although I am seeking another to supplement.
What I Do In My Free Time: WHAT?
Favorite Foods: Pretty much anything that doesn't make the kitchen stink after it's cooked.
Favorite Singers/Bands: Coldplay, Jars of Clay, Hillsong, Train, Colbie Caillat, Sting, Eagles, Chicago.
Favorite Women: My two girls.
Favorite Men: My two boys.
Favorite TV shows: American Idol, Fringe, Burn Notice, Swamp People, Fox News, The NEW Two and a Half Men.
Favorite Movies: Romance, Sci-fi and comedy. The trifecta. (Yep, I like CHICK FLICKS...don't judge me.) Favs include Star Trek, You've Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping, Dumb and Dumber, Caddyshack, Rat Race, Blazing Saddles, Animal House, Airplane!
Political View: He said WHAT?
Religious View: If Jesus can save me, He can save anybody.
Favorite interview: It's a three way tie. Billy Preston, Kenny Loggins and James Taylor. Three of the nicest guys you could ever meet. The late Billy was the best in making me feel comfortable when I was a little nervous.
Favorite concerts: Billy Joel and Elton John. Maroon 5 and Train. Chicago's still got it, but I think the late Dan Fogelberg wins out in the "older school" category.
Favorite Quote: Phillipians 4:19: "But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Favorite job: This one! Love playing your favorite songs.
Someone once told me that working out is FUN!
Here's elyptical candid photo from my 14-year-old daughter.
So, what's a sweaty DJ to do?? Go to Jared and ask him...He just told me "eat fresh." What a company guy.
Hey, shouldn't we be judging a gumbo cook off or something??
1. 'Bonus Point; Guy: You know this guy, the dude that gives 'bonus points' for anything and everything. If you have cookie baking and/or cookie eating skills, check this out, you get bonus points. If you're as comfortable in Manolos as you are in flip-flops or hiking boots, in his book you are the recipient of MAJOR bonus points. Trust me when I say the bonus to you comes from avoiding this guy who clearly likes to play games and keep score. He will spend the majority of your relationship playing Wii or X-Box in his undying quest to accumulate points.
2. Webster: Here's a hint: if a guy's dating profile requires a dictionary to understand, including him seeing "remuneration as a somewhat limited levy of attainment," forget the dictionary and allow me to translate: I am an insecure guy who will overcompensate for my shortcomings by constantly talking over your head in an attempt to impress you with my knowledge of really big words.
3. Disclaimer Guy: Any guy that actually feels the need to share with you in his profile that he's not a guido who's life revolves around the gym, or an angry person." He has never experimented in college, and does NOT require any additional reading. Just in case you're reading between the lines.
4. Novel Guy: If a guy's profile requires scrolling down just to get to the half-way point, you should probably click "next" without hesitation. You'll notice that he has exceeded the generous 1,000 characters that the majority of on-line dating sites allot. His 'about me' write-up is probably abruptly cut off, but not before he was able to squeeze in, If there's anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to ask." Trust me, when it comes to dating profiles, stick to the Cliff's Notes versions.
5. To Catch A Predator: These are the guys that are over 35-years old and looking to meet someone 18 and over for a 'serious relationship.' Seriously? You're 42-years old, a high school teacher, have a 20-year old daughter and are open to dating 18-years olds? Feel free to "date" and potentially move in with this dude if you don't mind him eventually leaving you for one of his students.
6. Contradiction Guy: This guy 'Likes going out, but also enjoys staying in,' and possesses a 'strong, but gentle nature.' His life is "complicated, yet simple,' and he is the type of guy that, get this, 'likes to make plans, but also be spontaneous.' Ladies, here's the deal with this guy: you could go out with him, or not go out with him, he's totally fine with it either way.
7. Average Joe: This guy uses the minimum number of required profile characters to share that he "likes to try new things and see new places." He probably "likes to have fun," and get this, on his days off, "likes to do various things." He of course is "open to meeting different types of people," and really looking to "meet someone that he can get to know." "BorE-Ring! if you could really see yourself dating Forest Gump, and/or eating super bland rice every day for the rest of your life, by all means go ahead and send a wink.
8. Freudian Slip Guy: This guy might wrap up his profile by stating, "if interested, please massage me." Ladies, you definitely want to say "bye" to this guy as he's got a one-track mind, and is not in a "meet the one so he can settle down" sort of way.
9. Low Self Esteem Guy: This guy might describe himself as having a decent body "if you don't mind fairly flabby with a bit of a gut." He'll probably throw in something mid-way to the effect of "I'm sure I already lost your attention and doubt you're still reading this." You'll notice this guy for the most part will keep his profile short and sweet, unless of course he's decided to list all of his short-comings, not because he's a man of few words, but just in case "you are not interested, at least [he] will not have wasted too much of your time."
10. Uncle Stalker: On Facebook, he's checking your profile almost hourly, so he knows where you graduated high school and the type of honey you put in your tea. Good side of dating? You'll never have to explain what you're doing. Bad side? He already knows what you're doing. (unclebetty.com)
