What a Year

Maggie: So, Sylvia, what did you and Morty do on your first anniversary?
Sylvia: We went to Puerto Rico.
Maggie: What about you, Yetta?
Yetta: We fled Poland.                                       –The Nanny

I was perusing my blog roll during the last part of the workday, checking to see what my fellow bloggers have been up to. I saw that Miss Brittany, the SuperGoddess just celebrated her blogoversary. I congratulated her and said, “I can’t wait til my own blogoversary.” I started to wonder when it was, thinking it must be at least 6 months away. So you can imagine my surprise when I looked through my archives and discovered it was yesterday! Continue reading What a Year

Cutting Back

It’s not a recession, it’s a correction. Correction, it’s a recession. This Is the Colbert Report! -Stephen, The Colbert Report

This recession has brought about even more penny pinching than Match and I normally do. We’ve been trying to find ways to cut down on our monthly bills. I spent some time researching cheap auto insurance online and other ways to cut down on spending. Continue reading Cutting Back

The 100th

History can be messy and painful but it’s not our destruction. If we’re lucky, it’s our foundation. You just have to work your way through the mess to find what matters, to find the pieces of your past you still want to carry with you, and sometimes, if you have just the right view and just the right castle, you can build the foundation for your new history, all by yourself. -Marin, Men in Trees

Wow, I can’t believe that this is my 100th post on The Date Girl Diaries. I have to say, I’ve never had so much fun writing a journal before. I am so happy that other people seem to enjoy reading it too. One thing I love about this blog is it gives me a chance to look back on my life and reflect. Also, I have a horrible memory, so it is great for helping me remember things, such as what Match and I did last week. 😉

A Case of Self Doubt

When you’re little, night time is scary because there are monsters under the bed. When you get older the monsters are different. Self doubt, lonliness, regret. And though you may be older and wiser, you still find yourself scared of the dark. -Meredith, Grey’s Anatomy

This week for the first time since the beginning of my relationship with Match, I had some feelings of doubt. Not doubt about how I felt about him, but a minor lapse in confidence. It all started with an IM chat I had with Miss PHD on Monday. For those of you who have been reading since I started this blog, Miss PHD is a chic I’ve been friends with since grade school. She is also the girl that convinced me to join Match.com where I met my Match. She met her match on the site too, and she’s been unbelievably happy, until now. Continue reading A Case of Self Doubt

Ted: Pecan pie? Why are we making that?
Robin: Um, it’s my favorite.
Ted: You’re allergic.
Robin: I know. I just like smelling it. It’s like eating with your nose. –How I Met Your Mother

I was tagged by Miss Penny Lane over at She is Anyway, a fun blog I just started reading-check it out! Ok, let me give these questions a shot:
1. Were you named after someone?

Nope. My mom read about my name in a name book and it means third child (which I am of course) and she liked the sound. I happen to love my name for the fact that it’s not very common. When I was a kid I hated it because I could never find those silly personalized pencils and keychains you get at souvenir shops.

2. Do you still have your tonsils?

Yes I sure do. Some doctors wanted to yank them because I kept getting throat infections, but I never had tonsillitis. I’m a firm believer in not having unnecessary surgeries and the tonsils are part of my immune system, so I’ll keep em while I can thank you very much.

3. Would you bunjee jump?

No I don’t think I could every do something like that. I’m terrified of heights and I hate that dropped feeling in your stomach, yuck.
