Once again, I have been thinking a lot about time- I never feel like I have enough of it. Three things always run through my head when I think about time:
1. Jessie Spano when she had her freak out on Saved by the Bell. There’s never enough time!
2. That wise quote I read once read: we have just as much time as Hellen Keller, Albert Einstein…and all those over heroic people.
3. That terrible/amazing old country song…have no idea who sings it, but lyrics go like this: “I’m in a hurry and don’t know why…I rush and rush until life’s no fun. All I really got to do is live and die, so I’m in a hurry and don’t know why.
(Side Note: my lyrics could be off. I once thought M.C. Hammer’s Too Legit was, “tell the jerk, tell the jerk to quit.” Say it in your head to the Too Legit song… I was “legit” in thinking this.)
Okay, so now on to the real meaning of my post. (If there is a meaning) This story was just too crazy not to share - Tuesday night, the local NBC news did a story on a woman that has already set her wedding date and venue, but she does not have a groom! (February 15, 2011) Do you call this proactive or crazy? I choose the latter.
The 35-year old woman has turned to Facebook and YouTube to market herself, and she has been on 46 dates, yet still no lover.
I thought of the pressure this woman must be under and the “time crunch.” I could not handle the pressure. Nor could I handle being out in the open that I am desperately hunting a man, that’s another story. She was very calm in her on-air interview and is hopeful she'll find love before her deadline.
So when I start to think I have no time, I am going to add a 4th point – “I do not have a wedding date set 7 months away and no groom to be.”
And for this woman, I wish her luck. I guess nobody ever told her, “you can’t put a timeline on love.” …. Or can you? February 15th 2011. She might be a loner at the alter.

The weekend started off with a bang at _____! Yep, I can’t even remember the name of the bar. Saturday we woke up and boarded the Lady Ship on Lake Austin. Nothing like a huge party barge with all of your friends. The day continued at “Abels,” followed by a night out for a 30th birthday! Sunday appeared, and it was time to go home…
Back to reality…back to work, back to not having all of your friends by your side…back to nagging TPS reports….back to being sober and remembering things you might have said/did over the weekend. This leads to one thing: EMOTIONAL HANGOVER.
Surprisingly, the term “emotional hangover” isn’t something us Gen X’ers made up all on our own- it’s actually a real deal:
According to the “urban dictionary”: (I know, great source, right?)
An Emotional Hangover or EH (EH? Why haven’t I thought of this? “I am totally having an EH.” OMG) is the aftermath of a night of debauchery where the social ramifications are worse than the actual physical hangover. It could be blowing the months rent on rounds of shots, spilling your heart out to a longtime friend.
So “EH’s” are self induced, and if you had a great weekend, I think it’s safe to say, pretty unavoidable. As we grow older, bouncing back from an EH seems to take longer and longer. For me, it’s about 1 to 3 days. I am feeling back to myself today and looking forward to this Sunday, so I can struggle with my emotional hangover. (which means, it twas a good weekend)
Looking forward to many more years of B.O.B. Who knows- maybe the next B.O.B. will be in a city, near you. All we need is water...and LOVE.

It probably doesn't take a psychographic profile to discover that those people who refuse to drink beer at all don't like to loosen up very much. They are socially conservative and see many issues as black and white. Teetotalers honor tradition and authority and prefer a less-hectic social life. People who turn down beer are 50% more likely to call themselves Republican, and are 30% more likely to never buy organic products.
