Swoon of the day: Part 2

January 26, 2010

This is Jared Leto:

Holy Smokes!

He is awarded swoon of the day for very obvious reasons. I think, besides his fantastic looks that he would also be really cool and laid back, all of the things we loves!

Ah bless him.

So, I have gone from having very little boy action, to some interesting encounters this past week. It’s been great, I feel like I’ve got my swagger back, there is a spring in my step and a smile on my face – it’s always sunny in my world at the moment, I hope the sun is shining for you too!

So, here goes:

Encounter #1 – The American

So, right before I left for Christmas break I hooked up with a very tall American fella’ – he seemed nice and all, and wanted to take me on a date, but I was so busy getting ready for the 3 week holiday ahead that I really didn’t have time, I made this clear to him, but boy was he persistent! To be honest I was very flattered, it was great for my self-esteem. But the texts were a little too over-the-top for something that was SO new! Anyways, after I got back from holiday we went out for a few drinks, he wanted to do the dinner thing but I hate the formality of a dinner date, so suggested drinks instead. Again, he was persistent about  dinner, but I won, victory was mine! So we settled in for a few drinks and I started getting the worst headache and begun feeling nauseous too, not wanting to be rude I tried to ignore it – how many girls have used this excuse before when they were actually feeling OK? Well, I wasn’t going to do that to this poor guy, I have manners! Anyways, as the date progressed I realised I was a little bored – I didn’t want to know about his divorce and certain medical procedures, it was a little too much, no mystery and too forward. Oh AND – he was all about the PDA (public displays of affection) like, full on make out’s in a very public bar, it was gross, and I tried to be tough about this too, but again with the fucking persistence, and I’m a people pleaser so I just couldn’t win! So, it got to the point where I was feeling so sick and headachey that I actually thought I was going to vomit. We finally got out of there and I just wanted to be left alone to feel sick/look gross but he wanted to take me home and give me a massage etc, here’s a lesson boys, if a girl feels sick and is just getting to know you, she doesn’t want to look like shit in front of you. EVER. Nope, no arguments, it’s just the way it is. Sorry, I don’t make the rules! Phew, so he finally left me to feel sick/look gross after some good night kisses (he did lift me up and kiss me like in the movies and I swooned big time, it was so cool!). But all in all, it was a little much – he gave too much away on the first date, and was just too persistent and wouldn’t take ‘no’ for an answer – he even asked me to go on holiday with him. Yikes!

I mean, it was fun and he’s a nice guy, just not for me!

But that’s what it’s all about right, getting out there and seeing how it goes, you never know what’s around the corner!

Got any fun/funny date stories for me?

Encounter # 2 – The Blonde Babe, to be continued….

A few weeks back my Sister and I went and had dinner with our gorgeous friends Holly and Ella who were also at home staying with their family for the Summer break.

Dinner was eaten at twilight sitting in their Dad’s back garden,  it was a perfect night. We drank wine, talked excitedly, smoked their Dad’s cigarette’s, let off lanterns (how magical!) and exchanged Christmas presents.

The girls gave me the Killers DVD Live at the Royal Albert Hall.

Now, I haven’t listened to the Killers since we broke up, and that night was the first time I had heard them in 3 months, and let me tell you, it was like coming back into the light.

I had tears in my eyes as we let off lanterns in the dark and Brandon Flowers sang “And my eyes don’t see you no more.” It was a perfect moment of pure happiness, pure happiness knowing that I was now officially happy and over him.

My friend Jon in New York used to mock me for loving the Killers so much, until he actually had a proper listen, and then became a convert – he used to ask me if I was a ‘human’ or a ‘dancer’ (to those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, here is the video for Human – listen to the lyrics)

So, what are you? Human or Dancer? I used to tell Jon that I was human but now I think I’m a dancer – and I love it.

The Killers - The Best Band ever!

Thanks to my girls for all of your support and bringing me back into the Light.

Holy Shit, It’s 2010!

January 3, 2010

Lordy Lordy,

It’s 2010, the year that I thought would never come, the year that we were supposed to have magic flying cars and eat food in pill form! Sadly, we don’t have flying cars, but we do have the internet, so all of you poor bastards out there can read my random thoughts and rants (and hopefully have a giggle along the way)!

So, did you have a great New Years eve? Pash any babes? Drink too much?  Tell me your stories…go on, I tell you all of mine.

I had a great one, I spent it with about 20 of my oldest and closest friends at a beach in the lovely Hawkes Bay. We drank, we laughed, we danced, I might have cried, might have. I didn’t pash anyone – there weren’t any suitable candidates. I’m not dropping my standards for no body.

Got any New Years resolutions? I don’t, all I want is to move on, and properly get over him and all the stuff that went with the break up. Enough is enough. Oh, and to continue being healthy and going to the gym, and pashing tall dark handsome men (that’s a whole other story, keep checking back).

Apparently he knows about this blog now and has read it, at least I think so. I have been very nice to him thus far, but in light of recent events, I have to say:



Phew, that feels better, I’m probably going to regret that. But hey, it’s 2010!

Good luck for 2010 lovers – and remember don’t fall asleep at the Wheel!
