Wine & Cheese ~ 82nd Serving

wine n cheeseWelcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.


Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times. I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs. I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well. I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal. If you’d like to read the past editions of Wine & Cheese just click HERE for all of the past postings. Sit back and join me now for the 82nd serving of some wine and cheese!

😦  I am on the verge of totally giving up on the male side of the species.  Seriously.  I re-activated my dating profiles on a few sites recently and I’m beginning to think I might be far better off S-I-N-G-L-E.  My profile is so crystal clear about age, location and other criteria.  No one pays attention at all.  When I mention that I am not interested and why, things turn ugly.  I give you the most recent of these exchanges.

A sends me a picture of a wine bottle and 2 glasses:

A – 4usOK?

Me – Um, you are 91 miles away, that really isn’t local.

*He then sends me a ‘gift’, a virtual red rose*

A – small price for my prize

Me – sorry, just not into long distance

A – yes u r

Me – no I am really not

– ???????

Me – what is it you aren’t understanding?

A – nothing your done

Me – exactly

July 15th, 2014

A – your a bitch

Me – LOL because I don’t want to deal with long distances and set some boundaries for my relationships and life that you don’t happen to line up with you resort to name calling? Then you sir are certainly no gentleman.  Good luck in your search for your prize.

A – I want you ok, u want me

Me – I am not interested.  You have already shown me your true colors.

A – No, i’m yours get over it bitch

Me – Good bye

At this point I blocked him.  I seriously question the sanity of this individual.  He had responded but once I blocked him it all vanished.  Thankfully I made screen shots of it all and his profile.  Just wow.  He also needs some English lessons.

You can see why I am discouraged with the male population.  Most who contact me are WAY too old, WAY too young, still legally married (not an option), have no photos and are too far away.  Some talk of relocating if I’m “the one”. That just freaks me out and sends red flags flying all over the place.




🙂  It is SO gorgeous here!  Windows open all night, crickets singing in the dark and a gentle breeze coming in the window.  I slept like a downed tree.

🙂  The good sleep can also be attributed to the new memory foam topper on my bed.  HEAVEN!  It was all I had to get out of the bed and get ready for work.

🙂  Day 6 of the 24 Day Challenge from Advocare and I’m down 6 pounds.  I am doing a serious happy dance.  I have talked to many personal friends who have and are using this challenge and the products with great success, so I am more than happy to endorse this!

  1. How rude!!! And you know the saddest thing? It was probably some dumb 13 year old from Jersey with nothing better to do with this time than harass people on the web. I am always stunned at how rude people are when they can hide behind their computer screen! I think the old fashioned ways of meeting people are still the best — although truth be told, if I ever found myself single again: I’d be totally frickin lost.
    HA — I hide my chocolate in the freezer in an old bag of frozen veggies – but that’s a great method too!
