- I am soooooo glad that, for the most part, you were all on my side. Because I would NEVER want to be on your collective bad side based on your feedback. There were some... ahem... passionate comments in the bunch! (Check them all out here.)
- You all love The Greek. (See? Why do you think I said I was pleasantly surprised by the date after my string of less-than-stellar ones? Too bad I think this little episode may have ruined any chances of future dates with him.) BTW, how effing funny is the picture I found to accompany this post? Your Greekness is my weakness. Hysterical.
- This post brought out some funny shit from you mofos. For example, Alexa introduced me to the term "blosse" (blog + posse). And, my friend Travis (who did not comment on the post) suggested that I should use names like they do for prisoners so no one can figure out the real identity of my dates in the future (e.g., CSX157). Romantic, no?

So I was very excited today to find that she recently posted their first dance on her blog. Go check it out here.
If I ever get married, I really want to dance to an upbeat song like these two did. I just feel like it will set the tone for a super fun reception/party.
(As a sidenote, my youngest sissy had always said she wanted to walk down the aisle to "Back that Thang Up." She didn't, but our other sissy actually did rap Kriss Kross' "Jump" -- word for word -- at her own wedding reception. So, I guess I don't really have to worry about whether my wedding would be fun even if I do start with a slower song as my first dance, huh?)
What was the best first dance song you've ever heard?

- You are very random, Val
- He must have sent this text to the wrong person
- Did we have plans that I don't remember making?
- Why didn't he use a question mark?
After that short-lived inner monologue, I texted back that I already had dinner plans with some friends, but assumed he must be going to happy hour so to have fun.
He replied with this: I was gonna meet up with u a chop house.
Again, I do not recall having plans to go to the Chop House with you, Val (though I do love their happy hour). I mean, if that is a request for a date, couldn't he at least have said, "I was hoping we could meet up at Chop House for a drink." Or something sort of like that?!?
Regardless, I had other plans last nite (a very fun girl date at Three Birds, where I ate too much bread and drank too much wine), so I didn't end up meeting up with him.
Guess that means I should expect to hear from him again in about another month or so. (Man, I am getting flashbacks of The Groundhog!)

- A silk blouse that didn't want to stay buttoned (mine)
- A 60-year-old insurance agent (who works for The Insurance Guy) who I thought was hitting on me (as did Mo) until he mentioned his wife
- A meh-cute bartender who apparently also dated The Insurance Guy (I mean, really? Why in the world would you ask a girl that you went on a few dates with to meet you at a bar where another girl you dated bartends? Pick somewhere else, you d-bag.)
- Some shady goings-on between the bar owner and The Insurance Guy (they kept disappearing together into some hidden room)
- A bet that involved me doing the splits in the bar if the 60-year-old tried them (he didn't)

- Threw his back out
- Phone was "catastrophically jacked up" and had been for three days
- Had to make an emergency and unexpected visit to PA to deal with family issues (twice)
- Was going to be "driving around til God knows when"
- Really sick and may have had pneumonia
- "Seriously ill" from bad fish
And, of course, most (if not all) of these excuses were delivered via text. (And we all know how I feel about that.)
Now I'm racking my brain to remember some of the doozies I've heard. What are some of your favorite excuses from boys?

- Identify possible candidates (duh)
- Ask if they're members yet (in this case, we'll need to find out if they're members of the "married club" yet)
- Sell them on the benefits of joining (tell them you have a funny, cute, smart girl to fix them up with)
- Have them fill out a membership application (get his number and email)
- Forward his application to me (and wait with bated breath for that finders' fee!)
Simple as that, right?
The other key to a successful membership drive, of course, is to define parameters for timing (in this case, we're talking all of March) and to incentivize recruiters in some way (enter the finders' fee).
If I can blow my numbers out of the water for my nonprofit's membership drive, I'm thinking Manhunt March might just yield a lot of new potential boys.
And probably at least a couple of juicy blog stories.
Now go get out and recruit! And once you find a potential new member, email me. Happy hunting!! ;)
