I'm Really Not A Girlie Girl

Maybe I'll blog in the style of my friend, Areyl. He has a list going just about everyday, so since I can think of something about which I can list, I'll give it a shot.

I am not a girl because...

  1. I can get dressed and ready for anything in 15 minutes or less [assuming I've already showered].
  2. I would rather stay at home and play Madden instead of putting on heels, and going out to a club to try to find a man of relationship potential. You go to clubs, to drink, and meet dudes or chicks [not potential sig others]. Is it me or does anyone else see the nonsense in trying to meet someone when so many people there are intoxicated or really just going to approach you because of the way you look? How many people actually attempt to hold a conversation with someone in a club where the music is blaring out of control?
  3. I do not sit up and fantasize about love, marriage, and motherhood.
  4. I am not a fan of intimacy. Cuddling is a faux pas for me: as a friend of mine says, it's funny because my dislike of intimacy, touching, cuddling, and all that junk is original. I'm not that way because of being hurt so many times [because, clearly I've only been hurt once]. I've just never warmed up to being up under someone or having him up under me. Unless it's about to go there please do not touch. Friendly hugs --from friends-- are okay though.
  5. I don't like spending time with just one person. This does not mean I want to spend time with lots of different people, but I don't look forward to seeing anyone everyday. I never have.
  6. I know that I look fat in my dresses, and in my pants, and skirts, and the button down shirts that like to gap at my DD cupped breasts. If he can't handle it, that's just too effin bad. I'm not going to put on a show for any man, woman or child. If someone can't realize that I am an intelligent female, with a great personality because s/he won't look past the appearance, then I don't give a fuck about them anyway.
  7. I have never, nor will I ever, allow a someone other than my sister/best friend to pay to get my nails or my hair done. I mean really, I have a job.
  8. I don't cry over dudes-- read it and weep kiddos.
  9. The only shopping in enjoy-- truly enjoy-- is DVD shopping. If I go shopping for clothes, I go in get what I need, and walk out. No browsing allowed. I have made it in and out of Houston's Galleria in the record time of 4 1/2 minutes.
  10. I am great with directions: not right or left idiots, but north, south, east, or west.
  11. I don't read instructions. Most things really do just make sense if you think about them.
  12. I hate playing hard to get. It's a waste of time, and time is money. If I like you, and you approach me I'm going to let you know; I don't play that phone tag or the should I call him or wait for him to call me game. That is stupid.
  13. I've changed the tires on my car in about seven minutes. 
  14. I know most of the rules to football.
  15. I'm logical. I'm not a feeler, I am definitely a thinker and can be quite insensitive.
I'm sure I'll think of more later.... this is enough for now.

Wow, I am speechless. I just learned a lot about you. "You dont do bullshit and you dont take bull shit" is how I would put that.

Be Easy.Be You.

Is what you are trying to say, is that you like sleeping with a lot of people?

Thank you for your last note and caring words. I liked your list! In some ways I am more of a guy than a girl too. (I can also be out the door in less than 15 minutes and a few of the other things you listed)Have a good fourth of July and good luck with the sexy office stud:)
