A catchup....

Sorry been away...

August 6 - Guy 6
I can't write about this one. It makes me want to cry (mostly in frustration). Besides, I swore I'd never write about work....

August 7 - Guy 7
Nice man at the motel checking me in. Despite the dodgy surroundings, his niceness made me feel safe

August 8 - Guy 8
This seems wrong at some level - but I gotta put it in anyway: my brother. Nothing like a little 'fun' game to revert us back to childish behaviour. It was very funny for me niece.

August 9 - Guy 9
Crazy cab driver guy.
No joke - this guy was freaking nuts.
Don't believe me? I ended up at the police station....which reminds me, I need to change the guy to Mr. Policeman.
Mmmmm, men in uniform. Mmmmm, men in uniform, that are blond, cute, fit and have an accent.
(Since when do I like blondes???? Never - I mean I've dated them, but they've never been my 'type')

August 10 - Guy 10
His name is Ian. He's a sweetheart. (And yes, that of course means he's married...)

Man - what I embarked on this challenge - I didn't realise how tough this would be (and how I really need to pay more attention to the world around me....)

August 5 - Guy 5

So today was rather uneventful. Today I had lunch with an old colleague/friend. He's a guy - therefore he qualifies for today....

You know - I think I had an underlying purpose in this little challenge in that I was suppose to look around at the men in my world and start noticing them.

I think I'm doing a crap job if that was really the aim. I had to sit and think for a few minutes to even come up with a guy to talk about. And then, I came up with an old colleague - which is kind of missing the point....

Tomorrow I will try to do better!!!

August 4 - Guy 4

Okay - I've finally found something I like about Facebook (pick yourselves up off the floor!!!)


I've even found something good about old boyfriends finding me... (the word old can be used in more than one way...)

Guy #4.

No, not the old boyfriend....his son.

Does that make me a cougar?? Actually, I think that just makes him a dirty old man.... (with a very cute son....)

August 3 - Guy 3

Sorry I'm a little late with this one, but after my fitness test, I was too tired to blog....

Speaking of fitness test - hello to Guy #3 (actually it was just me and all the guys) but one gets special mention for the sweet wave goodbye and the cute 'see ya'.

August 2 - Guy 2

Well its the second day of the challenge, and so far, so good. (I usually have great ideas but then somehow never manage to carry it all the way through...)

So Guy #2 is going to be music guy.

Music guy is the one I wrote about a few days ago - the one I chickened out of meeting just the other week.

Anyway - seems it was my fault (as if I didn't know that) but all is forgiven. I heard back from him today (so he meets the challenge criteria) and we'll catch up either this week or next.

Not quite sure about the rules I've set - do the 31 days of August need a different guy for each day? If so, you'll never find out about how it went....

Well, will play it by ear.

August 1 - Guy 1

I almost forgot about the August challenge!! My mind is so mush these days....

Well, I'm revising the challenge slightly - it isn't going to make today's post very good, but its going to make it more interesting and more challenging for me.

Don't worry - you guys will live through it...

So the change? Well, whomever I write about - has to be a part of my day for whatever reason. Someone I see on the commute, or someone I've remembered - but remembered that day. Make sense? (Actually, it makes it easier for me to know what to write about...)

So today's a bit of a problem... Long story (which I won't bore you with) but I didn't actually get out of bed until 5:30pm today so I've had limited exposure to the outside world... so my choices today are limited. Thank God for tv!!!

Guy #1: Tommy Lee Jones
I'm sitting here watching The Fugitive and I'm kind of mesmerised by Tommy Lee Jones. I remember when this movie came out - I know Tommy had been around for a while, but this was really his 'big' movie; the movie where he earned a reputation for being 'sexy'. He may have even been in the running that year for People's Sexiest Man. (I can't remember and I'm too lazy to look it up - but its ringing a bell).

Anyway - I'm watching this movie and for the life of me, I don't get it. He's got a craggy face, he's rude and a bunch of other things that do not equate to sexy.

Actually, it barely makes him interesting. Really, he only comes off a bully.

I'm sure Tommy doesn't give a damn what I think - not so sure you do either... but Day 1 is done. Let's hope this challenge improves with age!!
