2017-divider-line-blue-icyPINK SNOWBOARD PANTS AT BOGUS – m4w – age 33
Hi there! This was last Wednesday and you were with your dad I think. I thought you were very pretty and wanted to chat you up… but you were with your dad… mildly awkward. Anyways… you might have had a concussion and i wanted to see if you were on enough to go to dinner. Here’s hoping!!
***Okay, I’m not entirely sure how desperate a person needs to be but “you might have had a concussion” followed up by “I wanted to see if you were on ENOUGH to go to dinner.”

Really?? Sorry about your head injury but hey, how ’bout dinner anyway.

I suggest “Pink Snowboard Pants” zip down that mountain and never look back. If this guy is willing to take you with a concussion. I’m pretty sure he’d take you unconscious.
They make creepy crime shows about this guy. Just sayin’.
2017-divider-line-blue-icyRETARDED DRUMMER – m4w
Now that your fucking my best friend and apparently have been for some time, I can safely say you won’t be hearing from me again. You are exactly what I thought you were.
a sack whore.
***Not entirely sure how this is a “missed connection” but it certainly seems personal.

I wonder who the retarded drummer is.

Eh well. Looks like all of you are better off without each other or one or the other or..
Just stop leaving these notes. She won’t see them.
She’s too busy bangin’ your best friend.
2017-divider-line-blue-icyShort post due to technical difficulties.
– Printer, blue tooth, blah, blah, blah. –
I hope you’re all well. I’m hoping to get to your posts tonight.
I’m hoping I can get this glitch fixed!

Just sloppy weather today. Nothing major like they were saying unless their idea of major and mine are different. It rained, melted a bunch of snow, everything was sloshy, tonight it will freeze, tomorrow snow, then sun, then rain – REPEAT!

Be well folks!
Here’s to a week of wonderful weather ahead for all of us!

IT’S CALLED SHABBY CHIC

bar dotsIt may be called “shabby chic” but I call it shabby shit and Craigslist is filled with shabby shit.
I’m not a fan of painted wood. I’m just not. It’s like nails on a chalkboard to me and then to go that “extra mile” and make it look even shittier by scuffing it up in places?
Yeah no.
Unless said “shabby chic” piece came out of a 100 yr. old farmhouse and was originially painted by great-great-great-great Grandpa Joe? – Just say no.
Seriously? This is just a chipped up old table with a shitty paint job.

And whoever is responsible for this hideous Pepto-Bismol makeover is an idiot. My grandma had this set and the wood underneath this atrocity is absolutely beautiful.
bar dotsAnother word people throw around when they’re trying to sell shit on Craigslist. “Vintage.”
I call it vintage vomit.
Okay, first of all, “super cute?? No.
Second. Seriously? “NO HOLDS.”
I’m pretty sure people aren’t  lining up n’ taking numbers to get this gem.

Another piece my grandma had. A whole set actually. Again, the wood underneath is beautiful. Morons.
bar dotsI totally get that some people like this look and even go out of their way to personally achieve it. But on antiques or super cool retro pieces?? Just say no. Step away from the Martha Stewart kool-aid and just say no…
This whole trend just isn’t for me.
My taste in wood is much like my taste in people. I prefer natural beauty.

SIDE NOTE: If you’re really trying to sell something online or otherwise.
DON’T use grandpa as a selling point. Nobody wants to smell like grandpa.
“This fragrance reminds me of a beloved grandpa, after a shave and haircut at the barber shop! Heart notes of amber and rum with a light top note of musk and Bay make this irresistible!”
(A random post from somebody selling a bar of soap.)
bar dotsBUJO 411 (Excerpts from one of my bullet journals)
**No more triple digit heat. All week temps in the 80’s. I can live with that.
**5 wildfires out of control. None are close. The smoke is blanketing our city. Air quality zero. Lots of people wearing masks.
**Pup to the groomer.
**Get one Christmas quilt done.
**Finish current read.
bar dotsYour turn to weigh in. What say ye’?
Shabby chic or shabby shit???
Vintage or vintage vomit?
bar dotsMimi’s quote for the day –
Find something beautiful today. Embrace it. Appreciate it. Accept it.
And smile.
Happy Monday folks!

MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY

This “Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist.
These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it, ‘Your local serial killer hunting ground.’
Not.Even.Kidding

WE MET AT HOBBY LOBBY – (66-year-old male, 6’2″, divorced)
You were the dark brown haired woman looking at a dog pictures and frames for your daughter for Christmas. I was the tall, older salt & pepper haired man you asked which frame to select…..I chose the darker frame. I asked you about my selection of metal art. I’m divorced, and I noticed you weren’t wearing a wedding ring. We kept eyeing each other, and you surprisingly approached. I felt instantly connected with you…..I was almost breathless. I wanted to ask you your name and to go get coffee, but you walked away and I didn’t. If you felt the same connection, please respond. I think of you sometimes, and know we’ll probably never meet again. I’m just sorry I created this possible missed opportunity.
**– Written by a SIXTY SIX YEAR OLD MAAAANNNNNNNN! – Really???? Small chat at a fucking Hobby Lobby over picture frames and metal art left you breathless??? This makes me question not only your physical health but your mental health as well. She walked away?? I would’ve fucking ran!
COSTCO
You were talking on your phone pushing a cart. Bland hair, very pretty! We made eye contact multiple times and felt like there was a connection. It’s a shot in the dark, but worth a shot
**No age, height or relationship status on this one but I can tell you, the only shot this guy is getting, is shot down! “You were talking on the phone…” Yeah, she was probably calling 911!
You can’t fucking spell and you had a “connection???”
FLYING J GIRL
I don’t know if you were flirting or just putting on a customer service attitude (as a guy these days… I just can’t assume). You were on the register by the front door.
I made “manly sounds” at the credit card machine.
**No specifics on this one either but trust me, your age, height and relationship status don’t matter. All the “Flying J Girl” needs to do is RUUUUUNNNNNNNNN!
You were making “manly sounds???” Dude. What the fuck??
BEAUTIFUL LADY NEEDS A ROCKSTAR! (37, single, athletic body, 6’0)
Every time I come in the store I hope to see your beautiful smile. Yesterday when I was in I said hello you turned, smiled and said you needed to grab a rockstar to start your day and laughed a little bit. Your smile and amazingly deep green eyes take my breath away. You light up the whole store and everyone around you. If you see this just know im working up the courage to ask you on a date. Please keep smiling that beautiful smile.
**My advice to you “beautiful lady.” Again. Run. Just fucking run…
ADA COUNTY COURTHOUSE
Dang! I was hoping to talk with you, sorry I was on the phone in elevator after we left mediation rooms………………your eyes and thighs drove me wild and your smile made me melt!!!! Tell me what I said to you as I went to my own mediation room and where I was sitting in the courtroom when we were given instructions so I know this is you!
**Yeah. What could possibly go wrong with this “missed connection?” Dang!
Of course, what I really want to know is how many people actually connect from these missed connections. I mean, so, loser Joe Schmoe posts his undying love and devotion for someone he made eye contact with – eye contact people, fucking eye contact – and then loser Janey Juniper is combing the “missed connection” section of Craigslist to find her eye contact Prince Charming?? I don’t get it. Like seriously. How does this work? Why does this work? Does it work?! It just sounds like a place where all the freaks meet. And don’t even get me started on the safety factors…
People laugh at me all the time because I’m very much a ‘Criminal Minds’ girl and I think everyone is an unsub. Ask my kids. They’ll tell you, “Mom thinks everyone is a serial killer.” It’s true, I do. Mostly. Whatever. What I also think is that this whole “missed connection” thing is a breeding ground for a myriad of criminal activity and it’s only a matter of time before a reality crime show is named after it. But I wanna’ know what YOU think.
Yea or Nay on missed connections?
OR have you ever participated in this type of online stalking connection?? If you have I would love to make fun of you for it hear all about it!
