Okay I should be in bed - not feeling well...

But this is what happens when you have no TV and an awesome roommate... we're talking and listening to clips of Campolo and Miller on YouTube - Miller makes me laugh - like face hurt laugh - that's a good thing for any boy to do...

To repost part of the blog removed from before:
I made a comment about two weeks ago now along the lines of if Donald Miller was still single I would so be first in line. Leaha gave me this quizzical look and said “You haven’t seen what he looks like have you?” No at that point in time I hadn’t – but seriously who cares – he’s an amazing writer, he can do public speaking and he lives in Portland (vegan mecca)– I’m willing to give up getting the whole guitar thing – and I’ll just secretly ogle Isaac Slade of the Fray or something like that. Leaha left it at that – rightfully so. Then I Googled him while she was in Florida – why not? Bad idea for two reasons – one now I have a mental image of him while reading, and two he’s handsome – note I did not say hot or what have you. But here’s the deal I’m not looking for hot, studdly or any of those weird adjectives we use – why? Well lets see – I know that dating me is going to suck big time – got a whole lot of hurdles to hop – so if he’s hot he knows he can go somewhere else – and now not only have I implied low self esteem but I’ve also implied that the men I’ve dated or been interested in have not been attractive - negative on both those accounts. I guess it’s more the issue of mindset – if you’re attractive in the socially determined way, you’ve been told since the dawn of time and yadda yadda I’m not devoting my blog to this – moving on, back to Don. So Leaha and I were talking on MSN (while she was in Florida – not while she was in the other room – Cheryl) and between trying to deal with Shawn’s comments I brought up that I had Googled Don – and oh my the conversation that ensued – I should have saved and posted it to maintain the full disclosure policy but I’m sure it would cause mass hysteria (yes this is a word I hate to use for all you holding me accountable on the feminist thing) or something like that – simply put because Leaha and I are so brutally poor we can’t go and see him when he’s in town in two weeks but we maybe stalking him…to have coffee with Donald Miller would make me burst I’m sure….

And before I hear a comment about his age – he’s younger than Andrew who might I add turned 40 May 1, and well funny thing – they kind of look the same. Except one’s an egotistical general surgeon living with one of my former best friends and the other – the other resuscitates that part of my heart that dies every time I have to use the word Christian to define myself.

On a separate note can you guys have a look through the blogs and recommend your favorites for me to submit to Geez Magazine

living with lisa?

yes, he's living with Lisa - has been pretty much from the time she told me they we seeing each other "secretly" and didn't want me to find out by accident - was her term... lame but so not planning on rehashing history - in the long run for Andrew it's cheaper since he's never home, he's paying half the rent in an area he wants... and someone else does all the cleaning and cooking for him - since she is an Autism coach/assistant now who works during school hours only

they're still together? i thought they broke up. i think he's ugly anyway ;)

Jenn said...

haha, well he is now - ugly that is - I feel that if you choose to behave in that way then it cancels out the exterior attraction. Still together primarily because they never really see each other, and they both in many ways are suited for each other, neither wants to be married, have children or responsibilities, both smoke and drink. Note on the smoking - that was post me, would never have accepted that.
