crazy assed day

So my bf and i are getting closer and closer each day. Although e are long distance I feel us growing together like we are wrapped in a cocoon but since hes far away no one sees this. When I tell people how close and serious we are they don't understand.
I never thought Id meet a guy. Not because I thought I couldn't, I just never thought I would. Only when I got older did even I start dating online. I went out ton but with no success but for awhile I just enjoyed it. I always felt I had to many skeletons in my closet. But things change. I guess as you gt older some skeletons shrink. My life thats a complete fools existence is still the same. Whatever can go wrong will go wrong but it seems less important. I do not think I'm in love, everyone says I am but I think it is not something you are told.
I really just hada few things I wanted to get off my mind today... there we go

learning the machine/Mini Pack

Le I was sick with nerves from yesterday till this morning my knitting lesson on the machine. So, we get there and I brought all the million pieces down and out to the car in a million trips but I didn't have the manuals and the old lady instructor("900") to start on me about it " well.... I told you to bring them".."well.. well..".
With the change of the seasons, I'm getting a cold or something, so I brought my old lady tissues ( the mini pack) in my purse, because my nose is constantly running I think the mini tissue pack worked like kryptonite of some sort on 900! When she saw the old lady pack of tissues she knew to lay off, I was down with the granny knitting club!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just needed the skill.900 did reprimand my mum sorta which was so funny I could barely stay on my seat and not laugh and roll around on the floor,she got pissed. 900 was off in the corner so no reaction from her but I felt great. The knitting using this machine is super-duper complicated but, three hours later I can now make a rectangle sorta! TA-DA. I think, as you get more and more into it,it becomes more mathematic. For now I need to stick with and master the damn rectangle and I should be okay to move fwd. We were there for three hours and she charged me way less than she had told me on the phone. This proved that she had come around to loving me, after she saw my true interest in learning this thing. Maybe I'll have mittens made for me next time by my teacher.
hilarious, yet true.

I missed the iphone4 free bumper

I finally decided that I do, in fact have a call drop issue on my (glorious) Iphone4. I went to two stores trying to get a bumper and was guided to an ap for the phone to order it. The app is not there so I looked into it. You only had until Sept 22 to get the free bumper and then it is $29!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is now the jump of October and I am s-o-l. I'm pretty pissed about this and do not see why, just because I am late I cannot get a bumper. I have had every iphone since the onset and love them all but this really bums me out. Not sure why this is so stupid.

edit: I called and they're sending me one, but it was not without a frikking loooong phone call and dealing with a mo ron for like 40 min. nothing is ever easy.

It is all for the troops

I have a huge heart for the guys and guys over in Afghanistan. It is like my *cause*, if you like. So, this being my cause, I decided to Adopt a Soldier. I signed up for a soldier and 24 hrs later i got the address of a woman, not being able to read the #s and everything I was not sure where she was stationed, and we are sworn to not tell since many soldiers are in secret locations. The email said she needed feminine products, toothbrush, toothpaste, magazines, incidentals. I thought this was so sad and set out to the dollar store to pick up this crap. I got a huge priority mail box and I wanted to make it fun. I picture a filthy girl in the heat, jumping walls and hiding behind boulders, Like GI Jane. But still a girl at heart. So I wrapped up everything separately in colored cray paper (?). I thought; let each piece be a surprise. So I sent the package after filling out a bazillion papers.
I waited, after a few weeks i got a letter. I was so excited to hear from my "adoptee", I knew any girl would be so happy to receive a package of girly stuff so I was ecstatic.
I opened the letter and it apparently was from a woman not in the field. She works in an office involved in the war and is deployed but gets a nice check bi-weekly! wtf! Shes a virtual gopher- no fatigues, nothing! I spent all that money on a woman who has soap and shampoo and told me it was "unnecessary although she appreciated THE EFFORT" and she didn't know who put her on the list to be adopted. This chick probably makes more money than me.

I bbq with gas

Believe it or not. I met a guy. Yes it was at a concert. yes, it was through a freak show common friend but hes cool. We met in June and have spent much time together. He lives in Southern RI so it is a pain in the ass to go visit constantly but I'm also excited and he is worth it. He has a great job and a huge family, I have met them all and everyone of his friends knows about me. I have changed my Facebook status! but he hasn't. At first I was wondering why he had not changed his. We spoke about it and he said that everyone that is important to him knows about me so there is no point. Then i read this blog ( from a chick who seems normal(@techromanceblog) and it put it all in perspective. Most chicks want a label, they want to take what they have and put it in a tiny box.Most times it becomes that box they want to get out of.
I am not giving romance advice here because I, thus far, am happy. If you read my other posts you will see I have had so many losers it could make a lesbian.

*Boi* and I sat on the beach and met an older couple who were so cool, in love and funky, we spoke to them for quite a while while I grilled on the makes-shift campground bbq. When they left I commented that they were cool and fun, even in an older age. Boi turned to me and smooched my cheek and said; " I hope we are like that."

yup, I melted. How could anyone be so sweet. Did I deserve this, could it be as right as it felt. Now, months later I read these single lady blogs and I want to scream "it'll happen!!!" that old, idiotic saying "when you least expect it!" is true. yes as birthdays pass a slight anxiety creeps but it will, have faith. These women are great writers and creative hearts, who wouldn't sweep that up?

I can't say that I have fallen 100% for Boi but he is moving to Boston and going to do a grad program at BU(ick). I'm not sure when he is moving , I do not ask questions. I do not want to be a pest. I try to be aware of my behavior. When I generally joke ON my friends and visa-versa, I know he is too soft for that, so I don't. Once you grow feelings it is easier to *check yo'self* I think.

I plan to blog more. I hope Im not overly positive here lol.
on aside; I didnt know charcoal had to let the fire die before cooking so the burgers were good but I looked like a pinhead when I cooked andn they kept asking" doesn't the fire have to die down first?"
