Reason #130 – The Waiting Game

On chilly Winter mornings I like to play what I call the “waiting game.”

Here are the rules of the waiting game.

  • I wake first. I stick my foot out from under the blanket, it’s too cold to get up. The heating needs to be switched on, but if I get up to switch the heating on I’ll be cold (you see the problem here?!)
  • So I wait for you to get up
  • I pretend to be asleep
  • If you take too long I might cough or “accidentally” kick you
  • When you wake up, you will get up (straight away) and put the heating on (and maybe be lovely and make a cup of tea for me), thus solving my problem

And this is how we play the waiting game, and don’t think you can beat me at the waiting game because I have had a lot of practice at this and I can play for hours!


Reason #129 – I’m a commitment-phobe

Yep. You read that right, I hate commitment.

In the evenings, when I have several hours before bed, I could sit down and watch a movie, but I just can’t commit to that amount of time.

I will happily sit on the couch and watch 2 to 3 hours of mindless television and I know that I could have easily watched a good movie in that time but that involves commitment. What if I need to go out or do something? I can’t just NOT finish a movie.

That’s why I choose TV, it’s like casual sex of entertainment. I can watch several 20 – 40 minute shows and if I need do something else in the middle of those 2 to 3 hours, I can just wait until the end of the episode. No strings, no commitment, no questions asked.

I usually find something really mindless or something I’ve already watched so I don’t even need to give it my full attention and can concentrate on more important things (yes, much of this blog has been written with the television on, meaning that one of these short little posts can take me several hours to write because I keep getting distracted by the television)

Don’t try and find logic in this, I really don’t think there is any…

Reason # 128 – I Don’t Need a Man

Not now that I have more than 100 followers!!

*Runs around house singing “I don’t need a man”*

Thank you so much for your support guys!

P.S. I was running around the house singing this song and dancing like a dork. I had no idea it was the pussycat dolls. I don’t normally like them but this song fits the situation.

Reason #127 – The Boy I Love

I’m in love with a boy and he doesn’t love me back.

It’s that simple and complicated all at once.

Reason #125 – …and since I’m broke…

That means I still live at home.

Yep. 25 and still at home.

It makes any kind of dating hard when someone comes to pick you up for the first time and first date suddenly becomes Meet the Parents…except my Dad doesn’t have a lie detector…that I know of…

I am broke.


I literally have no money, which means no going out for fun.

Reason #123 – Ginger Pride

Reason #123 – Ginger Pride

Make all the jokes you want, but I’m ginger and proud. 

Red head, ranger, call me what you like, I’m still proud of it.

(And in case you wondered, yes, I do have a soul…)

Reason #122 – I’m back

I kind of went on hiatus there but don’t worry, I’m back and as single as ever…well not really…there is someone but he’s away at the moment. It’s kind of confusing actually.

Reason #121 – Maybe I Enjoy It

It seems that it has never occurred to some people that maybe there are people out there who just don’t want a relationship.

This is the standard party conversation I usually find myself in.
*Exchange names, pleasantries, how do you know the host, etc. etc.*
Random Generic Person: So do you have a boyfriend?
Me: Nope
Random Generic Person: Oh, I’m sorry.


Random Generic Person: Oh, that sucks.

Why do people feel they have to pity the fact that I, or anyone for that matter, is single. Maybe we enjoy it. Maybe we’re having fun. Maybe we’re not ready for a relationship.

I’ve noticed men don’t seem to get asked this as much. Just because I’m female, doesn’t mean I need a partner.
