Sauce, if I was a boy...I'd fail. Tooootally fail.

That's OK,there's no twin application. Hilarious, good stuff from you and the Stephranger.

Holla atcha when I get back from Vacation! F'reals!

Uhhh, the whole "lives with mom" thing? DEFINITE DISQUALIFIER! I just got that application last month. Nice guy...until the mom bit came up. There comes a point when you need to get up off your ass and get your own home, ya know?

Well, if he's living with her because she's ill/infirm and needs a caretaker, I'd let it slide. But 40 and chillin' with Ma because she still washes your underpants? Not so much. hee!

The whole thing is a trick. Anyone who would take the time to fill the whole thing out must come off as desperate and not worth your time. All answers are moot!

Relax... It's a joke and it actually would affirm you, not the boy who would fill it out. Gheesh. Of all groups of people to not get irony.

See ya'll at the 'Meleon!

Oh anon, anon, please, ID yourself!

It gives me a secret thrill knowing who actually reads my crap.

And you're quite right- all answers are moot, but it sure would be fun to see what they've got to say. HEE!

Anyone good at the 'meleon this weekend?

I don't think I should reveal myself. But you'd have the inside track on winning a bet, and I would require the sharing of the profits.

G Love etc. are there this week.

anon, just suck it up and tell us who you are already. we're all friends here..........and you knew us better you'd understand our many, MANY reasons for making the app. sides' if we don't know who you are, then how will we be able to share my many success stories with you?

Egads... A betting man. (or Wo, but if it was the incomprable G. Monkey, she'd have said something, so it's either the Horstinator, or The Professor, eh?)

I did talk to Mr. G. Monkey and he was out finding "Organic Turkey" for the G. Love & Special Sauce brigade. We had a hearty chuckle over whatever the fuck Organic Turkey should be. Heh.

If I'm done being a secret squirrel on Saturday Night, I may have to go check that out.

Well, it was more like 26 and still living with mom, but STILL...

And yes, I know that's robbing the cradle. Yes, I just turned 30 last week. That's yet another reason why his application was rejected. I used to counsel pedophiles for a living; it completely ruined me for dating younger men.

Umm, here's a question for the group. When a boy (to me this is definitely boy behavior, hence calling him a boy, not a man) makes you a mixed tape (well, cd) the first time you meet him and tries to kiss you...ON THE CHEEK...is it just me or is that kinda "Hi, welcome to junior high, will you go with me?"????? Or am I just old and jaded?

BTW...now is a good time to reassure me that even if I'm jaded, I'm not old. No, really. A very good time. I chose this week to have my first not-quite midlife crisis.

Yes, I know that I'm being pitiful, begging for reassurance online.

No, that doesn't bother me.

Okay, yes, it does but I'm doing it anyway, dammit!

8:59 PM  
Blogger Special Sauce said...

Wow, MWN, you are so very, 100% not even remotely close to being old. Old? Old is 90. (Though I have ta tell you- one of the women we took swimming today was ancient, but she had a nice rack. So. For whatever that's worth...)

You? Not old.

Mixtape? ON THE FIRST DATE?

Oh... Oh boy. He didn't send you a note too that said "Will you go out with me ________YES!! or _no" did he? hee! Sorry. I mock, only because it did happen to me.

In sixth grade.

But ouch. no, I wouldn't call you jaded, I'd call that guy a little ... em... challenged. (Or am I so jaded that I can't recognize it in others?)

okokokokokokokok, ri feel that i have every reason and right to voice on this one. i turned 30 back in march (a dark day in my book), and since the guys seem to get stupider. many ppl have told me that turning 30 is a huge deal and that one of these days (i'll let you know when my day deceides to surface) the light just "goes off" and everything makes sense. ok, sure. with that being said, i also realized that dating anyone younger than 28 is truly a waste of time. not that 28-30 is a huge diff, but the older guys seem to have some sort of clue and somewhat of a responsibilty with SOMETHING. for me, 95% of them are divorced and have a shitload of screaming ass kids floating around. tho i do live in vegas and all. a town all it's own in that sense. anywhooo, my advice is to knock your age bracket up a couple of notchs and you'll have a better chance of a free dinner vs the mix cd. wtf is that about? please tell me you didn't get close enuff to check his underwear tag for his name in black sharpie.

i just survived harry potter night. i doubt this makes any damn sense..................guys suck! i date em' but we're bitches! so remember, live single, drink double and sleep triple!
