I’m such a sap – Dawn & Q

I was watching Making The Band and they had Dawn & Q on there being all mushy. If you know anything about MTB lately, you know that Dawn and Q have been boo’d up since last season. This ep had Q meeting Dawn’s parents and him telling her that one day they’re going to get married and move to France. Ok, that was a bit extra.

The part that had me all sappy was when he was standing with her in a club, all the noise and hubub going on around them, and his attention was ALL on Dawn. He said something to the effect of, “You know what happens when you get close, right? I get all crazy.” Then he stands nose to nose with her and says (this is a direct quote), “I can’t keep pretending I don’t love you, cuz I do. I can’t.”

Now, this is the second time in the episode Q told Dawn that he loved her. This is also the second time she neglected to return the sentiment. Not that I think a person has to say those three words every time their SO says it. I find that pretty annoying and contrived. I bet this is a result of reality show editing, because I can’t imagine that she hasn’t gone there with him yet. Then again, the preview for next week has Q rolling out the whole shebang (rose petals, strawberries, bubble bath, and other cliche “romantic” stuff) and she seems a bit apprehensive.
Otherwise, the relationship is refreshingly free of the other Reality Tv Relationship bullcrap, like night vision cam sex under the covers, forced moments, over-involvement of friends/cast members and drama.

Anyway, I’m just saying that this shit is so saccharine that it’s making my teeth hurt and I might have to go in for a diabetes screening. It’s cute as hell, though and I ain’t even hormonal!

Did you see it?

Aside: I’m still mad his name is Qwanell. No wonder we call him Q. Also, his lips always look mad juicy. Not “juicy” as in good and full and ooh-I-wanna-kiss. “Juicy” as in, I bet he uses a lot of saliva when he kisses. Sloppy.

50 Things Men Wish Women Knew (yeah right)

So Men’s Health Magazine put out these 50 things. Not like Men’s Health is, in my opinion, an authority on anything except abs and tanning. Still, I thought it’d be fun to go through some of them  (you didn’t think I’d hit all 50!) and drop my two cents.

1. Express yourself. It makes us proud, even if someone thinks you’re wrong.
Oh really? Seems like men get exasperated and squeemish if we express ourselves sometimes. So you mean to tell me that when you’re ignoring everything I’m saying, you’re really just beaming with pride?

4. If you think I’m speeding now, you should see me drive when you’re not in the car.
That offers me no comfort, especially because you’re probably speeding in MY car.

5. If you’re truly interested in us, don’t play hard to get.
And if you’re truly interested in us, don’t act like you can’t tell us. You’re not less of a man if you say, “I like you.”

7. When I screw up, go ahead and tell me–once.
Nope, you can’t have it that easy. When I screw up, I’m going to tell you. As many times as it takes, okay?

8. No question need ever be asked through a closed bathroom door if I’m inside. I love you less with each syllable you utter.
Funny, most men will use the bathroom with the door open and will STILL talk to you.

9. I’m hot for you, not your sister or your friend or your coworker.
We don’t believe you, you need more people. Nah, you might not want to do it to them, but you have certainly noticed whether they’re hot or not.

10. My guy friends. Not only are they not negotiable, they’re your best sign that I’m not a whack job.
Your guy friends are my best sign that you have a heart of gold. Only a saint would entertain the mentally challenged on a regular basis. Continue reading

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
– 2nd Amendment, Bill of Rights, US Constitution (duh)

I could go on about whether the right of the people to keep and bear arms was meant to be applied to the people meaning the citizenry as a whole or to the militia mentioned in the first part of the amendment. Lawyers and the like know how important comma placement really is. I won’t though. This is about me.

For the record, I think it’s kind of cool that we have the right to own guns. America! Fuck Yeah! I also have strong opinions about gun control, the kinds of weapons out there and they way in which people are allowed to procure weapons. I’m not really getting into that here, either.

I was just thinking about whether I would ever purchase a gun or not. I really don’t think so. I don’t feel like I need one. Granted, I haven’t been in the type of situation where I’ve felt attacked or afraid to the point where I needed to keep a gun in my purse (or my garter, OW!). Seems to me that more bullshit happens when you have a gun around than goodshit. Kids get shot. Kids shoot other kids. You KILL people! I know that’s pretty much the point of a gun, but I’m pretty sure that there are times when I could not want to kill a person with my gun, yet do so inadvertently. I just think that in certain situations where you’d otherwise think of different courses of action, with a gun you might just shoot. I’m pretty sure if you have a gun, you’re more likely to come into contact with other people who have guns and want to kill YOU!

At one time, I did think that having a “cute” gun would be nice. Wouldn’t I be cool if I kept a lil’ tiny thang in my designer bag? Or what about a pink piece?

Beyond the novelty of a “cute” gun, there is no place for one in my life. Maybe my mind will change if something drastic happens, I can’t promise that it won’t. For now, I don’t really want to have to explain to my children why I have a gun in the home. I’m pretty sure that toy guns won’t be a big part of their lives, either.

What say you?
