I have been MIA thanks to a power surge

that blew out my main computer and I’ve been stuck with my sucky laptop, but I’m back.  I HOPE someone missed me!

More disasterous dating fun! (NSFW and NSFC)

I guess I may not be the only a..hole magnet on the planet after all.  Given all that I’ve read on these sites, I’m beginning to think that there may be more a..holes than there are nice people.  (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)  Some of these are pretty wild (and they have PICTURES).  PLEASE keep your boss, kiddos, etc in mind when perusing these sites.

Anyhoo  check these sites out for some CRAZZZZZZZZEEEEEEEEEE dating stories and personal ads.

Datewrecks is definitely good for a laugh

and it is most definitely NSFW an NSFC (not suitable for work or children).  It’s an adults only fun spin on the craziness that is online dating.  I have posted about it before, but it’s such a great site that I felt the need to post the link again and place it on my blogroll.

A positive website I wanted to pass along

FROM THE SITE: Gives Me Hope (GMH)  is where people share with the world their most hopeful, uplifting moments and allow others to draw strength from their experiences.

This was the COOLEST story.

“Like a dog meowing,” is what Simon said about this performer from “Britain’s Got Talent”

Watch the video, you’ll see what he meant.

I came across this article and thought I would share it

I feel it took a ton of courage for this single mom to write this eloquent and thought provoking article.  She summed up in words what many of us experience month after month and year after year.

Another in a series of annoying phone calls

So this number 407-000-9876 pops up on my caller id.  My intial reaction, “what place has 000 as the first three digits of a phone number?”  It was a recording about saving interest on my credit cards and press “9” to talk to representative.  First mistake.  Asked to have my number removed from their system because I am not interested and don’t accept solitcitation calls.  Second mistake.  Vulgarity, profanity and a verbal tirade about how they “don’t have a system.”   :: eyeroll ::  People seriously need to GET A LIFE.

This is one of my most favorite sites

Named in honor of the father of evolution, Charles Darwin, I give you The Darwin Awards at www.darwinawards.com  A chronicle of enterprising demises honoring those who improve the gene pool by removing themselves from it.

But I must provide a disclaimer: the site is morbid and also a bit grotesque.  Funny yes.  Hilarious, oh yes, but definitely morbid.  If you are one who is very sensitive and easily upset and/or repulsed, you may not want to click that link.  Just a fair warning.
