A General Blog About General Things:


A lot has been going on lately.

I hope to have a fulfilling job by the end of the month. The kind where you are doing actual work and at times are even stressed out about it. How excited am I at the possibility of being stressed out? So far all my jobs have been well paid internet surfing gigs.

Next I’ve been investigating the possibility of owning 650 square feet of over priced high demand property in up town. A convenient ten minutes from salsa three times a week, with the yummiest restaurants, and most uppity homeowners. Lady Cranky would like to be a little uppity. So I’ve been going through the whole mortgage approval process realizing how poor I am. Then I came up with the brilliant idea of selling time shares of sorts to all the men in my life. Now I’m not saying their buy in has anything to do with sex, but instead since the condo would be so conveniently located, they could buy a share, so that they have a place to crash for one month or a week out of the year….that sort of thing. So far I’ve only had one taker, who I suspect has an ulterior motive….

It’s also wedding card season. Yesterday I got two fat envelopes. Wedding cards are fancy these days. When you open the envelope like confetti falls out all sorts of extra paper: replies, gift registries, directions, what you should wear to what. Both marriages are a uniting of two different religious beings, and such have two equally important ceremonies. It took me several reads to figure out when I had to be where and what kind of outfit would be involved.

Next issue that comes up is a date. Who do I take to the wedding? I could take a boy. But frankly there isn’t anyone I would want to spend four awkward hours with. My friend S has thrown her hat in, insisting that Weddings are the place to meet men….after watching “the last Kiss” I think she needs to re-phrase that with “It is the place to meet someone else’s man.” Yet I think it’s a good scenario two single girls at a Trini wedding….soaking in the culture. N has promised that if I come sans man, I will be hit on constantly, and after this long boring winter, I could use some positive reinforcement.

Crankyputz said...

GC, catamaran boys Mexico are highly reccomended.

Island Spice: Welcome Back! We all missed you! And need updates...Dracs showed me the magazine all the girls were so pretty in their costumes...next year I'm going myself and get my own gift!

go to the wedding alone, who knows what may happen :-)

Miz JJ said...

I am throwing my hat in to go as your date. I am funny and attractive. I make an awesome wing woman as dudes adore my dry, sarcastic wit. Think about it. Lol.

Crankyputz said...

Haha Mizz J, your my third volunteer so far....the screening process is very vigorous, entails us going out for a night on the town, where there will be dancing, frolicking and all round debauchery....(didn't spell that right)
Please let me know if your up for it...

Hmm...I'll broker you a deal. I'll go to yours with you if you go to mine with me...a girlfriend has been inconsiderate enough to schedule her wedding the VERY weekend that my boyfriend leaves on a 3 week work trip to Europe. In.Con.Sid.Er.At! I don't really know her THAT well, so will be the proverbial Nigel No Mates. I can't even flirt with boys with the view to picking them up for post-wedding lovin'.

We too are doing the mortgage-pre-approval dance with our broker, and the whole idea of owing THAT MUCH MONEY is making me break out in cold sweats everytime I think about it.

I just got invited to another wedding too! Sept. 2nd in California. Go with a girl...I always like hitting on the waitstaff b/c in NY they're all "actors" and "models" and therefore very, very pretty.

Crankyputz said...

I love all the volunteers....Marika how scary is it to be in debt for 25 years???? It is much scarier to be in debt all by your lonesome!

B&G this is Toronto, the wait staff are usually Short Indian men, or Big Ukranian women....sigh!

Funny, I'd planned to post something on my blog about weddings on Friday, since the season is almost upon us. LOL. Great minds, I tell ya.

Weddings are not the place to meet men. I promise you. They're know that's what we think. LOL. Bring a good male friend, get down to the music, and call dat George...besides, if you bring a dude, you might be able to avoid that god awful queue to catch the bouquet.

A mortgage on your own is scary - I've just started with mine and it worries me that I can no longer run off and leave the world for a few months as i have to earn and pay for my place!

And i've never met anyone cute at a wedding... carnival on the other hand...!

ms.complexity said...

I have three weddings to go to this year alone, and I'll be alone at all of them, dang!
I was thinking about the prospect of going with a date to one of 'em...but I have no idea who I would take.

So sad. :o(

Abeni said...

I been to so many weddings lately that everybody keeps asking when is mine..ha!

go alone and have a ball

Crankyputz said...

Ms. Complexity, I volunteer to be your wing girl...(I own many beautiful dresses)

Albeni...DOn't get me started on people asking about my wedding....
