Wednesday Thoughts

A few weeks ago I had a bad dream that prompted me to join a dating website the following morning. I joined on a whim and realized halfway through the process that in order to read messages people sent you, you had to pay. I waffled a bit over this decision and several weeks later, I still haven't decided. I've received emails telling me I have messages waiting but I can't bring myself to pay to read them yet. It's not like it's a ton of money - it's really not. It's just that years and years ago I joined another dating website - a free one - and I wouldn't be willing to pay for the majority of the messages I received on that website. 

In fact, out of curiosity, I logged onto that old website recently to see if there was anything interesting. I found this series of emails that demonstrated exactly why I'm unsure about paying for messages. All four of these came in less than ten minutes. Why this guy thought I was online, I have no idea. I don't feel like translating these but if you speak Spanish you will enjoy them:

1:47 hola hermana como estas ,sabe me gustaría saber de usted y tener tu correo para estarnos comunicándonos
1:50 estas ahi?
1:52 sabe hermana quiero una esposa eterna ? seras tu. 
1:54 me gustaría hermana conocer lo que hay en tu corazón y tu mente?

Oh brother. I don't know though - maybe on a website where you have to pay, the messages would be less weird? What do you think? No offense to the above "hermano" who's just trying to find "una esposa eterna."

Anyway. I'm thinking about doing a summer movie series with some friends. What are some fun movies that men and women both like, and that are fun and summer-y? I mean, besides the Sandlot which is clearly the best option. Any other ideas? Karate Kid? What About Bob? I'd love your input!

In other thoughts, I kind of can't believe it but the fireflies are already out! I was on a run last night (grumble grumble grumble) and unexpectedly saw one! (I gasped!) Then another and another. I saw several more before I got home. Does that mean summer has officially begun?

And lastly I want to share with you a funny picture I saw online earlier. Sadly, I can kind of relate to this. Can you?

Happy Wednesday.

You most definitely need to watch Troll 2.

I have some very strong feelings about online dating...
Anyway, movies I love... Well you've seen my collection, any of those.

Katherine said...

Oooh, that picture's great! I can relate, too.

I'm not a fan of online dating, but then I'm not a fan of real-life dating, either, so maybe I'm not one to go to for advice... Too many uncertainties!!!! I've got enough of that going on.

And YAY fireflies!!!

Goonies and Tremors. :) yay fireflies!! I miss them. I went on a date with a boy at byu who after one convo thought we might have known each other in the pre-existence. That got my weirdo meter up and I'm afraid I wasnt very nice to him on the one date we went on. He just wouldn't take a hint I had to be less subtle. Blech... Online dating sounds like that...

I dated a girl once who after we broke up told people I was gay..... so not dating isn't so bad either

Liz said...

Why are those messages in Spanish? Is it a Spanish dating site? And why won't you translate them? I'm dying to know what creepy things he said, and I'm too lazy to go to google translate.
Paying for online dating sort of makes me feel like a prostitute. Without any of the things prostitutes do or say.
