No, Seriously

I was asked what the dating scene in Atlanta was like recently. I smiled and said, well, you need three things: healthy dose of self-esteem, loads of patience, and a sense of humor. I think that is pretty much going to keep your dating drama to a minimum.

In your opinion, when you are getting to know someone, is it a waste of time to get to know someone that you think has little potential for “MVP status” with you? I ask because, I think so many times we completely miss the mark on who is actually a good match for us.

Have you ever met someone who seemed like a colossal waste of time, then they turned out to be a great thing?

Are we not willing to take risks in dating anymore? Does that make us big chickens when it comes to match in love and romance?

If you are brave enough to want an actual relationship with someone, how long does it usually take before you take the person seriously? Is it more about their behavior and consistency or the amount of time they have managed not to repulse you? Perhaps a little of both? What are your thoughts?

THIS IS DEDICATED TO ALL THE DADDY”S GIRLS –
Verse 1:
Back when I was a child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me and then
Spend me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved

Chorus:
If I could get another chance
Another walk, another dance with him
I’d play a song that would never ever end
How I’d love love love to dance with my father again

Verse 2:
When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He’d make me laugh just to comfort me(yeah, yeah)
Then finally make me do just what my momma said
Later that night, when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me

Chorus:
If I could steal
One final glance
One final step
One final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never ever end
Cause I’d love love love to dance with my father again

Verse 3:
Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
I’d hear how my mother cried for him
(2x) I’d pray for her even more than me

I know I’m praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don’t do it usually
But dear Lord she’ s dying to dance with my father again

Every night I fall asleep
And this is all I ever dream

Oh Poppa I was speed reading. However, my son and I were just talking about the Peach County furloughs (overturned) that was trying to get enforced.

He was saying that he wished he had to only go to school 4 days a week but I was telling him how that move for those teachers and kids would not be a good one. And all that good stuff.

But nevermind since that is not what you were talking about.

From my understanding, most furlough days were teacher workdays. If that were the case, then kid’s would still have to go to school without missing many days.

Swiss – Is your head spinning. A year ago where were you? Had you already imagine this? Been dreaming about growing old with Swiss, how long?

I’ve always been one to ask questions like that right before someone gets married. Usually with my friends they have had afew drinks….and you’d be amazed at the response. PURE COMEDY!

Poppa from what I heard this morning Peach County was looking at having 4 days school weeks for the kids permanently in an attempt to save on utilities and gas. That’s what my son was asking me about. Let me see if I can find an article on it. I didn’t hear the entire story.

Let me see what I can find.

Speaking of furloughs,the republican Cathy Cox(sup for schools) was on the news on saturday and said she was thankful for the stimulus money,otherwise they wld have furloughed teachers.

Now,coming from a woman from the NO Obama, party,that was kinda refreshing and innocently truthful at the same time!

I wondered tho later,if she wld be chided by the bigwigs in her party for mis speaking.

Folks are trying to take her to court over the money that she won for the kids on “are you smarter than a 5th grader?”

Her house has been listed as up for foreclosure a couple of time. I think that her husband works in construction and things haven’t been very good in that arena lately.

She still says that the wants that money to go to the kids. I think the School for the Blind and School for the Deaf.

Cee — Thanks for the Wii tribute! :-D I’m getting all misty over here…

Nah, my head’s not spinning — between last minute wedding details, work & trying to sell my place, I’ve been to busy to really stop and think about it all. But I’m ready.

Where was I a year ago? I had actually just proposed to Swiss Miss. Now then my head was spinning — partly because I couldn’t believe I had actually landed such a fine catch (I seriously out-kicked my coverage, I have to say) :lol: — and partly over the $$ I just dropped at Tiffany for the ring… :lol:

Actually, the hardest part so far was what I just did — order the groomsmen’s gifts. I got each of them a set of bar glasses w/ their favorite team’s logo on it and 2 of the guys are Tech guys — that was the most painful purchase of my life… :lol:

The current President has to give the ok for previous presidents to act on behalf of the US.
After all, their time is up.

His bump in the polls will happen if the senate extends the cars for clunkers program.

I don’t know how many people really cared about those ladies freedom. I’m sure that most people didn’t wish them harm, but given the other issues that affect us daily like employment , the ladies were down the list.

I heard one lady say that she wanted President Obama to lower the price of a gallon a milk. That would impress her. I don’t know how he could do that without the government taking over the dairy industry. I ain’t for that.
