I've Been Vandalized

Streak Start: This “1” really brings out the blue in my eyes.

So I’ve ignored Streak for a day….thinking it might miss me a little if I played hard to get. Perhaps it would accidentally bump me to a 10 even though I haven’t played. But apparently the Streak has enough Fawning Admirers and although I have my special place in its moody heart, I can’t be the center of its universe at this point. I mean, how can I when we get stuck on first dates?

I choose with careful confidence where our next date will take place. I know I’ve got my No Rooting for Texas rule. However, TWO Texas teams were going to share the nets today…Baylor Bears at Texas Tech Red Raiders. I don’t remember why I ended up choosing to court Baylor, but they won. My validation for choosing Texas? Texas vs. Texas means Texas will also lose.
It worked for now….I’m nervously hanging out with a 2. Two is hanging out? What? Is that legal?

A tough call looking at the Miami Hurricanes who are going to cross the Clemson Tigers threshold. In these cases, it seems to make sense to choose the home team. This could very well come back to bite me and swallow my 2 (hmmm….might not be such a bad thing). We shall see. I do like Tigers though. But I’ve met more Hurricanes.

I’d be super witty right now but I have a girl child burping in my ear and a conversation to boot. Sometimes she’s talented enough to hold an entire conversation with a single belch.
The Tigers came through for me. Ga-Rowl. I’ve got another game to pick for the night to see if I can change that soft, supple “3” into an angular, manly “4”.

On that baritone of a note, I’m looking at yet another NCB game….the Idaho Vandals (Idaho always reminds me of a dirty joke from when I was in middle school) at the San Jose State Spartans. I like Will Ferrell. He was a Spartan cheerleader.

I might add that Will Ferrell was not a REAL cheerleader.

Sis Boom Bah!
Gave Me A Zero, Didn’t CHA?

Cookies and Kisses

Streak Start: 1

Yeah! I’m pole dancing around my “1”! But then again, is this simply going to be another first date only?

The Mister is not in a very popular mood tonight. Extra coffee and cookies will probably sway the boat. I hear they are very good for recovering from hernia repair surgery.

I had all kinds of Grown Up duties to tend to today and therefore never did get to put the proper amount of research into my winning 50K for this month. GOOD LORD that’s a great truffle!!! I’m hanging out doing that whole cyber serious thing, moving haybales and trees around on my Farmville and eating truffles.

So the only pick I’ve made today has come after watching the dog poop three times today, locking the chickens back up for the night and wondering why it seems like the Olive Garden dumped off all their dishes in my sink after the dinner rush.

Basically I’m wearing a t-shirt that says, All I Got to Pick Was a Lousy Hockey Game. After swapping back and forth I decided on taking the Phoenix Coyotes at home vs the Columbus Blue Jackets. The brewing Grandbaby lives in Arizona….so in hindsight that’s why I really chose them. Otherwise it was file under Girl Reasons – what’s cuter, a blue jacket or a coyote? More dangerous? Edgy?

Hoping tonight is the night that I dream of Ark de Noah and how his journey was brought to you by the number 2.

Hey 3! You Look Mighty Cute in Them Jeans!

Streak Start: Pbbbbbbttttttt!

Will the redemption never arrive?

I’m terrific at luring and baiting a one here and there, but apparently in the last couple of weeks, I’m not passing muster for a 2nd date.

At the moment I see there are a plethora of 1pm games going on today. As of this writing, it’s only 11:33am. I’m going to enjoy some coffee, Farmville and oatmeal. Cozy grandma type things. Soon I’m going to learn how to knit skeleton sweaters for the Hot Topic baby. I also have the dog barking at what might be the flapping of a fly’s wings and Mate talking on the phone next to me. I can barely write a coherent sentence so pick-choosing is probably on the off peak at the moment.

****Post Distraction****

Well, had I simply seen New England Patriots at home vs the Miami Dolphins, I wouldn’t even need a brain to chose. So hopefully this isn’t one of those, YEAH, CHECK OUT THIS NO BRAINER…EVEN MY GUINEA PIGS WOULDN’T GET THIS ONE WRONG and then Oops. New England gets a wedgie. In between making more coffee, feeding humans and having a head full of blog posts (my Other Blogs are out there…check under profile), I’m looking for a quick pick, a chance to see Mate naked in the shower and some reading time.

****Post Game and Shower****

Can I tell you how relieved I am that not only do I have at least one erect thing in my life (a shiny new “1”!) since Mate’s hernia surgery a few days ago? Besides the Patriots winning me the stuffed bear at the carnival, the Ravens have also won. I have no pick riding on their wings, but do like the team.

Next up for the 4:15 games was a pile of confusion and new GPS programming. I was going to take Eagles over Dallas until I saw that none of Philly’s players were showing up. Slight exaggeration but I’m a girl who is dog paddling in the sports pool so that’s what you get. I really wanted to go against Dallas (see prior Never Picking Texas Teams Rule) but didn’t feel like Philly was 100% going to catch me. I’m pretty sure it’s possible that they’d have my ass before my back so moving along.

I recall losing the one time I did decide with full throttle abandon to rip it all off and choose the Houston Texans. And then I lost my streak. So I was left flapping in the breeze after finally giving in. So today’s rule of No Texas is up, reinforced with brick walls and high school security guards with 3 moustache hairs each.

I checked out the San Diego Chargers @ Denver Broncos instead. Hm. You know, I thought I wouldn’t find anything on this menu that was going to graze my palate as nicely as choosing (safely) against any Texas team. This one seems to be it. Don’t worry, I have my plate of Crow waiting in the fridge should I need it. Mate currently has a 4 streak so maybe he can feed it to me. Naked.

****Post Game****

It’s been a few glasses of wine at this point and after San Diego won, I decided to go with a fun basketball game. I imagined choosing Seattle Seahawks at first up against St. Louis, but didn’t. Why? Well the conversation with Mate went in the direction of me wanting to take Seattle but thinking maybe I oughta choose St. Louis. I’d want to visit Seattle more than St. Louis and Mate agreed with that. However, that’s the Girl way of choosing things and it may or may not increase my streak. I decided to ignore that game and choose Stanford Cardinal basketball instead. They’d be entertaining the California Golden Bears for the evening. It was one of those picks where neither looked especially threatening to the other so I went with the home team.
And it paid off. I am embracing a “3” in bed tonight peeps. Oh the glory of a 3 in patchouli as opposed to a Zero in Brut. Mere child’s play!

Sweet dreams tonight. I’ll be engulfed by my 3 while it lasts.
