Perfect 10 Gets Away

Feeling of the day: Frustrated.

Here's the story:

The weekend before I left for Mex, I went to a delightful champagne brunch with some old pals (guys and girls). As you probably know, I am not one to turn down the endless champagne that is poured. I do enjoy me some champers.

After the brunch, the guys in the group decided it was a great idea to hit up a local dive bar for more bevvies. I had to admit, it seemed like a great idea to me too. So we went to this local pit of a bar and had another.
While there, I noticed this very hot guy. I would say he could quite possibly be a perfect 10 in my dorky POM standards (I'm talkin' looks, since I don't know this guy from anyone). He was tall, very muscular but lean, not bulky creepy and he had glasses! His legs were perfect and his butt - OMG! I was watching him the entire time. I'm sure my guy friends were not so happy with that.
Anyway on the way out, I had enough liquid courage to say something to him. I said something totally amazing like, "do you work out?" I really hope that's not what I said, but I think it might be. I'm fancy like that. We chatted for a bit - I think he said he does Tri's. I then suggested that we get together some time. Yeah, really - I did. I gave him my digits and that was that.
Flash forward to me landing in LAX on Sunday. I turn my phone on to check my messages and get this... PERFECT 10 CALLED ME!!! I was so excited and wanted to hear the message again, so I hit "7". Oh shit...wait "7" is the delete button. Shit shit shit. Then I figured I could just see the incoming number on my call list. But nooooooooooo, my phone was off so it didn't capture the number.
I'm totally screwed. He's a perfect 10. He's not going to call again and again like other losers that call me a million times (Mr. Smarmy, French Canadian Old Man or the Australian CEO Sex Maniac).
**Note to self - must share the FCOM and ACSM stories with ya'll
I had another brilliant idea to go online and check my call log on my phone bill. But it's NOT on there. The call came in on April 23 or 24. And my phone bill logs the calls until the 22 and then back on 26. The days in between are lost forever.
I even had a dream about him last night. I dreamt that I saw him at the store and was able to say hi and tell him what happened.

Stupid, stupid, stupid!

***UPDATE: Called Verizon and there is no way to get the number or the voice mail back. boo

Wine Flu, Not Swine Flu

I'm so going to lose all my wonderful readers out there with my lack of posts.
I just plain suck a blogging these days.

Got back from Mexico on Sunday night - whoooooooooo hoooooooooo what a time.

We went to Isla Navidad. It's a tiny little town about 40 minutes from the Manzanillo airport, in between Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco. The Grand Bay Hotel Isla Navidad was awesome. Our group basically took it over. You can take a small water taxi over to "town" which is basically one cobblestone street with a few restaurants and bars. It was so relaxing.

Hours in the sun at the pool, lots of fun dinners, drinks, drinks and more drinks. BUT get this, ya'll will be so proud. I actually went for a long ass run. It was supposed to be about 4 miles, but we got totally lost. Ended up running hills for about 1.5 hours in the heat. I also did a 1.5 hr yoga class one morning. Have not stepped on the scale to assess the chips/salsa damage but I will, eventually.

Working on DETOX this week. Veggies/fruit galore. No booze until weekend. I'm afraid to run because I have been coughing like a mad woman for about a week. Don't worry, it's not Swine Flu. I had the cough before I left for Mex. It was a little scary traveling home though - lots of masks being worn, etc.

That's about it. I promise to make an effort to get back to blogging regularly.
Peace out peeps.

Dear Apartment, How do I Love Thee?

There will be so many things I will miss when I move from my beach apartment:
  • Duh, the beach is like across the street -literally
  • Walking distance to market, library and tons of bars
  • Walking distance to friends and certain ex people
  • Bike riding everywhere (Until my bike got stolen last week!)
  • No driving on weekends
  • Being a peninsula local

There are also some things I can't wait to give the bird:

Explanation needed???

Picture one - the hole in the ceiling that drips water every time my upstairs neighbor showers

Picture two - oh, forgot to mention that the hole is directly above my bed, which is covered daily in towels and a bowl to catch the water.

Luckily, she wakes up and showers about 30 mins after me, so I'm usually prepared. Although on occasion, she surprises me.

Jealous, aren't you?

Vacation & Sandwiches

I seriously have nothing to blog about. What a pathetic excuse for a blogger, huh?

This weekend was fantastic. Friday, I got off work early and went for nice run - beautiful beach day. Saturday I went for a nice run again! Then I hit up Bikram and the beach. Then I met friends out for a mellow dinner. Sunday I had the funnest of all fun brunches with a old group of friends I haven't hung with in a while. Of course, that turned into a day of drinking in the sun.

I'm leaving for Mexico on Wed and have so much to do. I can't express how much I am looking forward to 5 days of relaxing. But first: Pack, pedicure, escrow docs, laundry, figure out how I am going to get to LAX.

I also want to express how grateful I am for Subway sandwiches. I don't feel like going to the market this week since I am OUTTA here on Wed morning. So Subway is my go-to. Here's what I get: 6 inch Turkey on Wheat - no mayo, no cheese. All the veggies (except onions) and I add pepperoncini and jalapeno (everything is better with a little kick), then a little vinegar. That's it! So delish and filling.

You know I'm boring if I'm blogging about Subway.
Actually, there are so many things I would LURVE to blog about right now, but too many people I know read it.

Over It

I can't believe it's been so long since I've blogged.
I have to be honest, I am enjoying this break. I really don't feel like writing these days. Combined with Facebook, I am feeling a bit over-exposed right now. I know, it's my own damn fault, but still.

Don't worry, I'm sure I will be back when I'm feeling sassy and need to get something out there. In the meantime, here's the latest tidbits...
  • Going to Mexico in 9 days!!! Can't wait - already working on tan.
  • I've gained about 8 lbs. Seriously not happy about that but maybe it was the kick in the butt to get me back at it.
  • In escrow again - another BETTER condo only 3 miles from beach!! yippy
  • Dating... schmating.

Going to catch up on all ya'll's now.

Sorry for the lack of posts of late.

I have been dealing with the condo thing. Here is the story:
It's not happening.

Basically, the condo complex has too many deficiencies so the mortgage insurance was denied. It has nothing to do with me (I have very very good credit!!). I didn't want to put more money down, so I cancelled the entire deal. If I wanted to borrow money from family for a larger down payment, then I would pick a better location and condo. I was only using this one as a stepping stool to get into the market because I could do it on my own.

I am still going to buy something this year. I am just back at square one.
I am ok with this. I have learned A LOT and I'm happy to be able to start over.
Onwards and upwards, right??
