D.A.M # 7

Ok, Dan, this is for you. For those of you who have read my blog since the beginning (and if you have continued to read through its boringness) you will know of the dictionary entry about fishing. It made quite a stir (ok, not really, but a stir for my little blog). Here is an updated version of fishing for you.

Fishing. v. A ritual “nice guys” often have to resort to in order to catch a girl’s attention.

Ok--for you nice guys out there who are having trouble using this technique to your advantage--I have another tip. You must use camouflage. Let me define camouflage.

Camouflage n. A sneaky disguise worn by men when they are on the hunt for women.

In this particular case, I would suggest camouflaging yourself as a fish. That's right. Stop trying to be the fisherman and become a fish (but really you're still a fisherman in disguise). This will then force the girl to come to you. Sit back, relax, and let the girls do all the fishing. A nice guy (if I do say so myself) was finally able to catch my attention, but that's because I decided to do the fishing. I met him, and he seemed like a nice guy, but he didn't seem like he was out fishing for girls--any girls. So, I decided to see if I could get him to notice me. It wasn't until I had already baited my hook, cast my line, and watched it sink, that I realized he had ME hooked. It was history from there. So, perhaps start thinking about utilizing your camouflage skills, pretend you are a tasty, shiny, sparkly fish (preferably one with a coin in its mouth) and wait for the girls to come fishing for you. Just remember to keep your own hook ready! Happy camouflaging.

The REAL Ring

Hey everybody! I finally picked up my real engagement/wedding ring! It took long enough. I picked it up on Friday, but then noticed as I was driving away that one of the tiny diamonds framing the center diamond was missing--so I had to take it back and wait again. I picked it up today though and am very happy to have it. Here are a couple pictures to give you an idea of what it looks like. Sorry they are blurry, I took them with my phone.
