I vote that we date

Happy Election Day! I hope you are all at the polls today because it’s so important to vote.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m older now and have more at stake, but politics has become some what of a fixation. I usually don’t talk politics when I’m just meeting someone new. I figure that I should get to know a person before I start letting politics get in the way.

Do you feel pressure to date within your political party? Would it be difficult to date someone with opposing political views?

I think I would be willing to date someone with different ideals than I but I can’t recall having done so before.

I’m the type that have ideals across the spectrum so I suppose it makes it a bit easier. What do you think our political views say about us and our compatibility in dating?

I was just talking to one of my bffs. She just said about the smartest I have heard all year. “The quickest and easiest way to lose unhealthy unwanted weight is to stop dealing with toxic ‘friends’.”

When I was in boarding school,we used a generator for electricity. The lights were cut off at 11.00 pm every nite and a flickering warning would come up 10 minutes be4 the lights went off.

Now in the boys dormitories, guys would be up and about in their friends rooms talking untill the last minute the when the lights were fading,run back to their rooms and dive on the beds.

Two guys(friends) in particular were notorious for this last minute mad rush and dive on the bed.

One day,we set them up and we put their two metal trunks(those
ol’ school suitcases) on top of their beds and as they came back rushing in the darkness,they dived atop their metal trunks……boom,boom,boom, we could hear from our adjacent rooms!

Then ouch! Ouch! Ouch and curses ($7&,3;’hyoid!

And a roaaaaaaaarrr of laughter!

:lol: :lol:

I have found that if you keep the television off all day you will read more. Be it on the web, the back of a box, the newspaper or whatever. It works. I haven’t had the television on during the day for about a week now. After the news goes off in the morning I turn the television off. I do things around the house and then when I am done I will read something. Anything.

@Slim – lol, yeah saw that one. seemed a bit odd to me…i liked the one where dude pulls into his garage with his moonroof open, and as hes sitting there turning down the radio or whatever, you see these legs crawl down from on top of the automatic door (now slid up to the ceiling as its open). spider dude crawls down on top of the car, sticks his head in the moonroof, scares the cr@p out of the driver. i LMAO, tho did make me glad i dont have a moonroof

There 103 footsteps and 1.37 minutes one way from my front door to the mailbox. When Elizabeth walks with me it’s closer to 130 steps and 3 minutes because every time she sees a bird, butterfly or distant colorful weed/flower she wants to run in the other direction toward it.

Did you read how he kinda responded to the law suits….the whole thing smacked of some dirt on his part. Something in the water ain’t clean….dude’s going down. Then again that’s what got him in this mess….dang that was mean wasn’t it?..mia culpa…sort of. teehee…

@ Raqi I have the opposite problem. Allstate keeps calling me and I don’t even know how they got my home phone b/c no one has that. I can’t give it out b/c I don’t even know it by heart. These telemarketers are getting so resourceful these days.

Chase says if I open an account with them they will give me $100. However that is based on having direct deposit and I don’t have a job.

Wachovia gave me free checking but Wells Fargo want to charge me $2.00 a month just to mail me my statement.

@ Raqi thanks for reminding me I need to take advantage of that deal. Also you have to keep it open at least 6 months or you owe them the money back. I remember when I used to move and I used to get the invitation certificates for BOA and Wachovia as a welcoming to the neighborhood. Do you have to sign up for Direct Deposit? I think once you put the $100 in there you are squared away.

swiss – OMG…now THAT’S funny. lololol

Raqi & YSIC – Allstate sends me promos seems like every 3 days but i’m not even with them. Matter of fact, I just ripped two of them up last night. And as far as card offers, I got one last week from some company I’ve never heard of…said they’d give me like a $700 credit limit but that the annual fee was going to be $157…Are you seriously kidding me? LMAO!!!!

Wells Fargo also charges $9.95 (or so) a year to participate in their checking/debit rewards program. I cancelled that mess so fast that somebody’s head is still spinning.

And…they keep sending me offers to sign up for credit insurance and roadside with all of these bonus gifts just for trying. So…I sign up and get the free stuff and then cancel during the trial period. So far, I’ve gotten a GPS system, some oil change coupons, a $50 gift card to Walmart and something else that I can’t remember…haven’t paid ‘em a dime. LOL!

@ Sexy Cool yeah I did that with Bank of America and their many offers they send when you first open up an account. I’m about to get my $40 walmart gift card in a couple weeks. So far I’ve gotten 2 $40 visa gift cards $10 check and a bunch of coupons for different rental cars. But since I fly everywhere I need to go I don’t really need to use those.

I don’t even bother with those gift offers just to sign up anymore. The last time I did that I forgot to cancel in time. I remembered when I saw that $49.95 mysterious charge on my statement. But I do participate in the store surveys. So far I have received 3 gift cards from Target. And I do all rebates. The marido got me into mailing off the rebates.
