He was rude, a tad bit aloof, made fun of me… and did I say rude? He said the weirdest things to me, wouldn't rub my feet and acted as if the world was his on rental to the rest of us. He and I didn't work because of other reasons. But I will say that despite those things, that man made me realize that what I thought I wanted, was not what I wanted at all. I want someone who’s funny, someone who shocks me, someone a bit over the top. Someone like…me. Who knew?
They always say that opposites attract…and I totally get it. But how long can you be around someone who is your polar opposite? How can it work if you don’t find the same things funny, or don’t handle situations the same? How long before opposites can’t function because they’re too different?
Anyhow, my quest has changed. It’s very unlikely that I’ll find a man who is just like me; and that's very disappointing. Hopefully I will come close. I’m actually wondering about what else I’ve been missing out on while I was looking for Mr. Nice.
That’s where the one week digital cleanse comes in. I’ll be defragmenting my mental and psychological hard drive during the first seven days of the new year, and I invite you all to participate.
*email only from laptop or desktop computers
*cell phones can only be used to make calls, and no text messages or e-mails are allowed - if you receive a text, you must reply in voice over the phone. E-mails must be returned from a laptop or desktop computer.
*no use of Twitter or any other social networking site - this includes reading as well as posting.
*no visiting of any entertainment or gossip sites. (No need to detail which ones - you know what they are.)
I floated the idea last week on Twitter to see if anyone could envision themselves doing this, and the responses were interesting; some said they could definitely do it, but many were resigned to the idea, calling it impossible. If it is impossible, than my theory is already proven and we’re in big trouble as a society.
This can be done, people. Do it with me. When we pop back up on the grid on January 8, let’s trade stories on what it felt like, how hard it was, and maybe how hard it actually wasn’t.
So obviously I missed the new year resolution boat, but who cares?! Everyday is a new opportunity. With my serious addiction to blogs, text, google wave and gchat this is going to be difficult for me, but not impossible. I will begin my digital cleanse Monday, January 18th (MLK day) & bring it to a close on January 25th. I encourage you all to participate. If you receive a call in response to your text, don't judge me lol.

2. People always have hidden agendas.
3. 30 Rock is the funniest white humor around. If you don't watch it, your life sucks.
4. You can teach an old dog new tricks, but it involves lots of physical abuse and the use of narcotics. It's probably not worth the hassle.
5. The older you get, the less important holidays become. Be an adult, sleep through New Years.
6. Life is so much better when you're sober. Says the dummy who decided that her resolutions would be to quit drinking & no cursing.
7. Eff resolutions...(is saying eff still cursing?)
8. A life without friends is one crappy life. If you don't have any friends, get some.
9. I erase people's numbers from my phone when I'm mad at them. Then when they contact me, I restore their number back into my phone. I'm a back-peddler and I really need to stop that.
10. My 3rd resolution will be to stop beck-peddling.
11. Okay, maybe it won't be.
12. There is no way that people think they can actually pull off booty pop panties. It doesn't even look believable. Stop being cheap and go get pumped like Nikki Minaj.
13. Footrubs make life worth living. If you've never had your feet rubbed, you haven't lived. You too guys.
14. As much as I try to pretend I don't...I do have feelings.
15. Reading expands your outlook on things...but be careful of what you read.
16. India.Arie was right. It is the little things.
17. Sometimes its the big things too.
18. This list may be getting too long.
19. Everything I'm not makes me everything I am.
20. I feel like crying.
Oh thats right, you most likely can't because you don't know which one of us is writing this.
Oh the joys of anonymity.
