Demise Of The List

It's been a while since I've written a "list update". So long in fact that if you just started reading my blog, you'd wonder (right about now) what the heck I'm talking about.

To summarize, in July I created The List. Basically, it's a list of things I had to do before I was able to accept a dating invite. The purpose of my blog was to tell the tales of hilarity that ensued while completing items on said list. And, true to it's purpose, my blog provided an outlet for some funny stories. Like this. And ofcourse, who could forget this one. Not all of the episodes involved cowboy boots and fishnet stockings. Some involved the men's washroom and an almost run-in with the police. Or me cutting off all my hair. Along the way, I also shared tidbits of random dating advice bestowed upon me by well meaning friends/family/coworkers/random strangers on the street.

To educate as well as entertain, I included dating techniques I learned about including the wedge, and something that rhymes with poprock. And tips for single gals on how to be handy.

For humor (because there wasn't enough already), I tossed in tales of office pranks including a bad case of anal glaucoma and kidnapping a monkey. And random stories about body parts like T and A and bodily functions.

Yes, it's safe to say that I've covered a lot of ground (etc etc) in my blog posts.

In October, I recapped my progress on the List. And that is where the list stands today. So, I've decided to retire. The list.

Don't worry. This won't mean an end to the funny stories. I'm just getting started :)

Sean, and Sean: There has not been a recent invitation, no. But I look forward to one without feeling "list guilt" :)

Hum, I see that Sean has sort of asked my question...twice! Only I was going to ask if this meant that you were READY to accept an invitation. I see that you are and I'm looking forward to MANY dating stories. Don't disappoint me Erika!

Personally, I think you are too young to retire... Lists are meant to be a work in progress, period. We are always adding and crossing off things. I admire you for challenging yourself. More of us should follow your lead.

I was sorta waiting to hear about your running through the sprinkler naked ... I thought that might make an interesting story. Now, with the list retired, my curiosity will remain forever unfulfilled.
