Oh well, that certainly explains it then!

********************
While catching up on my blog-reading earlier this evening, I came across a post on Gem's blog about one of my very favorite actors, John Cusack. In her post you could link over to What John Cusack Movie Are You? over on the Girls-Only Blogthings page and so I did. Turns out that:

Your Life is Like

No surprise there, as I do have that incurable romantic side that darn few people know I have but "Serendipity" wasn't one of my favorite John Cusack movies if I'm going to be honest. I much prefer "Say Anything" or "Must Love Dogs" but really, I wouldn't turn my nose up at any John Cusack movie! Amanda likes to tease me on a regular basis about liking John Cusack but not as much as I like to tease her about some of the strange stuff she likes.

While I was over at Blogthings I came across another quiz that piqued my curiosity and I decided to take it just for hee-yuks. That would be the How Do Men See You? quiz. If I had gotten back a response of "Men do not see you. You are invisible.", I really would not have been at all surprised but instead what I got instead was:

Men See You As Choosy

Men notice you light years before you notice them
You take a selective approach to dating, and you can afford to be picky
You aren't looking for a quick flirt - but a memorable encounter
It may take men a while to ask you out, but it's worth the wait

Right then ... and just how long is that worthwhile wait supposed to be? I believe I am going on close to five years and counting so perhaps it's worth my while to wait a little longer until I have perfected the act of worthwhile waiting!

But this little quiz was right on at least one thing - I am, in fact, choosy. There was one time when I decided to be not so choosy and that resulted in my second marriage which ended after ten years of wedded non-bliss. Let's say that taught me to not be choosy again!

Problem is, at my age, you also run into the old adage of "beggars can't be choosy" so what's a girl to do? As one of the EMTs at work has said, "at this age men are like parking spaces - all the good ones are taken and the only ones left are handicapped".

Oh well, I guess I shall choose to continue to wait and see if a good parking space opens up that doesn't require a special permit - for whatever it's worth!

  3. I love Say Anything. Just does me in each time I watch it. I think Blogthings is fun and it makes for good blog fodder. I would be intrigued to take the "How Men see you quiz. But a little scared. I'm not sure I want to see the answer. Okay. Fine. I'll go take it...Men see me as playful. Well, some men. Depends on the man. Fun quiz!

    Pennywise sezs:

    If you haven't seen it yet, check out HBO Films "The Jack Bull" (1999). Not only does it star John Cusack but it also has his Father (Dick) and Brother (Bill) in it.

  5. Shall I be the first guy to leave a comment on this topic? hmmm,
    Ok, so our survey says,
    men are like parking spaces, I think (speaking as man) we are all handicapped in some fashion: you just decide which dents and dings you don't mind.
    Your wait will be worthwhile:
    Ok, so do you keep circling the parking lot until that good space opens up, or just hopes it opens up the next time you are shopping?
    Men = parking space
    Women = cars
    final thoughts, women rolls over men, backs up and rolls over him again. hmmm, so if you visit my site, please don't slay me for this goofy spoof of a comment. Have a great day.

  6. LOL at sgt dub's comment.

    I got the same results as you:
    Men notice you light years before you notice them
    You take a selective approach to dating, and you can afford to be picky
    You aren't looking for a quick flirt - but a memorable encounter
    It may take men a while to ask you out, but it's worth the wait

  8. Hi!
    Wanted to stop by and say thanks for the birthday wishes :) Muchly appreciated! Serendipity is my all-time favorite John Cusack movie, I'm a sucker for romance and fate, I suppose.
    Speaking of which, happy Valentine's Day too! :)
