Happy Thanksgiving From AFP!

OMG my friends! Yesterday while having an amazing Thanksgiving dinner with Laura (yummy pate - I am sooo coming back for any dinner parties you have my dear) her friend Jennifer recommended I check out the website for a laugh. Let me just say the Thanksgiving Letter didn't disappoint. Now I warn you, liquids shot out of my mouth and nose as I laughed out loud (yes it should read LOL - but the full words are far more dramatic) and if you're not careful you will too! Happy Thanksgiving From AFP!

So let's talk...

Well boys and girls, I recently received some advice about men and thought I'd share this spicy little nugget with you.  "Men aren't interested in women who aren't needy."  

Whoa - whoa there everybody before all 5 of my readers rip me a new one, let me say this...the advice giver presented me with no credentials before this advice was given.  For all I know she got this snippet of enlightenment from a gum wrapper (does Bazooka do that anymore?).  But I have to say I'm leaning towards believing her.  Case in point - me, after all isn't this my blog?  I fancy myself an independent gal, someone who seeks out things to do regardless if there are others to do it with me.  I eat alone at restaurants and have gotten pretty damn good at it.  I live alone and make decisions about my future without the assistance of group think.  I definitely travel alone - I refuse to miss the world because someone because I can't find someone else to go with me.  And yep - read and attend lectures so that I can make up my own mind on things that are important to me.  So what about that says BACK OFF BUSTER, I don't need you?  Come on people - I choose to do these things to make ME better, so I have more to offer myself and anyone else who enters my life.  I mean really, having your act together is a turn off?  I would think living with your parents, never traveling outside your neighborhood, shuffling from one boyfriend to another,  and believing everything Glenn Beck says would be far worse. 

You tell me, am I wrong?

Long Time No Hear

Hi there friends, it's me, Christina.  I know it's been quite a while since I've written, but don't worry I haven't forgotten you.  I could say I've been waiting for the right thing to come along and get me all fired up, but that wouldn't be truthful.  I could say, my love life has gotten so rich and fulfilling that I could think of nothing else, girl pleez you know that's a lie!  What I will say is its been too long, and someone as opinionated as me should never walk away from an opportunity to preach, teach, and pontificate.  My goal remains the same, share my thoughts - flaws and all.  With the deep down hope that you'll share yours and we'll all be richer and better for it.  Ohhh don't worry I won't get ahead of myself, I don't see this blog turning into the great bastion of deep thoughts - I will have my pop culture rants and you will laugh as you read them. 

So you guys know I turn 40 next month, right?  Well I'd set a personal goal to be fabulous by forty and since that achievement appears to have turned into a pipe dream I've decided to reach for a more realistic one...1,000 followers by the new year.  Do you think I can do it?  I think I can but I'll need your help and a committment to mass advertising.  Any thoughts on how to get these AWESOME - SUPER DUPER blog out there?  What do you think about my instituting a daily topic - you know something like...Sexy Saturdays or Wicked Wednesdays (and I'm not talking the Broadway play baby), Technology Tuesday (snooze), Tipsy Tuesday (oooh yeah!), Fabulous Faker Boy Friday....ohhh this madness could go on forever...

Just some thoughts...TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!  Off to meet the Russians!  (I'll fill you in later)
