Lucky in Love

I currently have no fewer than 15 emails in my junk mail folder, informing me that I seem to have simultaneously won lotteries all over the world, if only I will just do them one teensy little favor. But, my amazing and previously unparalleled string of good luck has reached new heights: I also seem to also be lucky in love (despite the fact that I have no "porfiles" listed anywhere online and am certainly not registered on any internet dating sites. . .that I know of, at least). I received the following email this morning, with a subject line of "Interested in You"

I'm Miss Suzy Isaac, i slim in staure above all i like being honesty,trusted, sincere. I have gonne through your porfiles, it interest me to know you more, and I hope to use this opportunity to explain myself a little about me, i am fair in complexsion,5.9fit tall, 44kg. I wish you to write me through id ( also i will send you my picture after hearing from you. Somethings I like to do in my spare time are gardening, home improvement projects, camping, bicycling in the park, backyard bar-b-ques, moon-lite walks on the beach, preparing candle-lite dinners for someone special, sending flowers to someone special for some reasons, sitting and watching the sun set with someone special, and cuddling in front of a fire with someone special. I enjoy cooking, gardening, playing billards, darts, dinning out, going to the cinama, traveling and site-seeing, museums, and concerts. I like almost any kind of music, but I think my favourite is instrumental jazz. i will tell you more about myself again in my next mail dear and hope to hear from you soon.
Love From,
Mis Suzy Isaac

I DO like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain. I am NOT much for yoga, I AM into champagne. . .I like making love at midnight, on the dunes of the cape, and if she's the lady I'm looking for, I MAY plan my escape.

Which reminds me, I currently have a tremendous dilemma. The same cd has been stuck in the cd player in my car for months. The dealership couldn't get it out, and said that it would be about $200 to replace the stereo. It seems silly to spend $200 on a car stereo when it works perfectly find, and simply has a cd stuck in it. I intend to perform surgery on the cd player myself this weekend. If I am successful at removing the offending disc, I think that I need to be prepared to listen to the next disc I put in there for quite a while. This means, I think, that a mix tape is in order. It nees to be the mix of all mixes, since it may be in there until I get rid of my car. If YOU had to create one cd that you had to live with indefinitely and listen to over and over like Groundhog Day, what would you put on it?

Some favorites that come to mind are Love Street by the Doors, Madonna's "Like a Prayer", Carnival by Natalie Merchant, "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel, "Building a Mystery" by Sarah McLachlan. I'm sure that those show my age (except for the Doors song which shows DH's age =)

Ugh - I got am email just like that not long ago. It was my first, and to be honest I was pretty shocked. I emailed her back to let her know 1. I wasn't interested and 2. I wasn't a man.

I LOVE mixed CDs!! You definitley need to have a variety to cover any potential mood. I would have to have some Def Leppard for sure(but I am biased), a good song to drive fast to (LA Woman by The Doors or Slow Ride by Foghat), a song to get you excited (Shot Through the Heart by Bon Jovi or You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC), a song to zone out to (I am the Walrus by The Beatles), a song to cry to (Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls), an angry song (anything by Rage Against the Machine) and a song that just makes you smile (Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice).

Sorry, but my CD collection is like an 80's time warp.

Have you ever heard the cover of Snoop Dogg's 'Gin & Juice' by The Gourds? It is a country/bluegrass type version of a gansta rap song and I HIGHLY recommend it. I don't really like country or gangsta rap but for some reason this really works.

Well, you may be lucky in love, but I can get cheap v*agra. Jealous, aren't you?

Music is such a hard mix! I have a variety of country, rock, pop, folk, hard rock and euro rock I love. But in a way only certain can be mixed. Have you thought of the mp3 adapter?
