Engagement!!!

Filed under: berryland, Uncategorized — pandaberry @ 4:56 am

This is sudden right???

I took inspiration from my favorite episode of Sex and the City, A Woman’s Right to Shoes.
Carrie decides she’s tired of married people getting all the support so she gets engaged
to herself and registers at Manolo Blahnik. I thought that was a fabulous idea…so I’m calling my dating
adventure off and am officially engaged to myself! We’re thrilled. And because I’m me I went to Banana Republic
to buy an engagement ring for my love. I should totally have a party to celebrate haha!

Filed under: Uncategorized — pandaberry @ 2:33 am

Went to Screen on the Green yesterday with the always ruggedly handsome
Jared(brother-in-law) and Brent(crazy-as-hale). My sister was supposed to come
but she was sick, aww.They were showing Ghostbusters which we were all completely
excited about. A kick ass movie that has an amazing theme song, ghost sex, slime and Bill Murry?
Awesome! Below are a few pictures of the night, that sadly, did not end with a sexy
party as was intended.

Adventures in Dating-Week 2

Filed under: adventures in dating — pandaberry @ 3:27 pm

Welcome to week 2 of my month long dating adventure!
This week I met a boy named Jason. He was 23 and liked
Radiohead. This is all I knew of him when we went out on Monday.

Here I am getting ready!

We met at a coffee shop in between where we both live. He arrived
and we didn’t have trouble finding things to say which is really nice.
Honestly I felt really weird about our age difference, he’s 23 and I’m
26. He let me know he was a Republican and I was like ooohh. I’m
so not. He loves zombie movies and I was like ooohh!! We finished our
drinks and decided it might be nice to go for a little walk. I told him
about the dating experiment and he was very intrigued. We were talking
about random stuff and he mentioned one of his friends worked at
Cartoon Network, somewhere I’d kill to work!, and I remember reading
that CN was considering bringing back Futurama and I asked if he thought
that was true. We both didn’t think that was going to happen even though
it would be completely awesome. He asked if I had seen the Futurama movies
and I hadn’t. He got excited and said ‘That’s how I’m going to woo you! With Futurama!!’.
How cute is that? We walk and talk for a little bit more and decide to call it
a night. We were closer to my car than his so I told him to hop in and we’d
find his car. The song playing when we got in was Flock of Seagulls Ran So Far Away.
I was like perfect song!!!

I got home at 10:45ish and at 11 I get a call from Jason. He said he was going
to throw a kink in my experiment and ask me out right away again. So we
picked Wednesday at his place for a movie.

Tuesday rolls around and he said he wanted to call with his address while
he was thinking about it. I asked what he was doing that night and he said
nothing so I invited myself over. I can throw surprises too buddy! So I get
ready and go over to his place.

We watched the first Futurama movie which was completely kick ass, don’t you think
crew of the Planet Express delivery company??

The man-boy himself, Jason

Radiohead’s In Rainbows vinyl! He actually let me hold it!

And um check out this completely amazing present…Shaun of the Dead t-shirt!!!!!!

I also a got a Family Guy Star Wars t-shirt. It’s huge. I’m gonna belt it
and wear it with leggings for ultimate fabulosity.

Our shoes…
dating adventure-week 2

We decided to keep our Wednesday date that we had originally made, so I went
after work. He was watching Fox News (FUCKING HATE FOX NEWS) and I asked
if he was really watching it and he said yes and we will not be watching the
Communist News Network (aka CNN). Uh. So I say I’m hungry and since he lives
above a pizzeria we thought pizza would rock. It was amazingly good!! Feta and
mozzarella and black olives? YES PLEASE. So we eat and decide to watch the
2nd Futurama movie. It was good but not great. We sit around and decide to
pick each other’s brains about relationship stuff. We were talking about weddings
and he was saying he has a huge extended family so he’ll probably have to have
a big wedding. I’m elope girl all the way and in the middle of explaining about
why he freaks out and yells at me. He thought I didn’t want to hear what he had to
say about something and I was like…I do but not when I’m in the middle of a sentence.
So I was like fine what do you want to say and he said nevermind and then refused
to talk to me. UM fucking awkward much. I just wanted to get out of there so I
get my shoes and leave.

Not happy.

We aren’t seeing each other anymore. So a crash landing on Week 2.
But…at least I got some sweet presents!~

Katy’s Birthday!

Filed under: Uncategorized — pandaberry @ 4:21 am

Today is my friend Katy’s 24th birthday. She is one of the loveliest
people on the planet. I wasn’t able to hang with her tonight so
I asked her to lunch. Below is the fun we got into!

I’m almost ready to see the birthday girl, watching 90210 as it’s Saturday
morning and this is what we do on Saturday mornings.

Once I get there I see a wig just chillin on the couch. So, staying classy,
I immediately put it on and kinda refuse to take it off. I want to do a full
photo shoot with this…creature.

Katy told me I looked like Stevie Nicks and I quietly thought to myself
‘Ugh Steve Nicks on drugs’ but that’s kinda regular Stevie Nicks…so…yeah.
We were talking about our love of wigs and she said we’d have to go wig shopping
one day so I said ‘Today!!!’. We both got too excited and immediately knew what we
were after for her…Anna Farris hair from the movie Just Friends. I love having a mission!
So first we were off to have a lovely lunch at Murphy’s. We talked about our
hilariously tragic dating lives and she totally got behind my dating adventure.
I haven’t had a straight up girl fest in a long time and Katy is the best company
for this!

Katy, Our lady of Mimosa. She had…maybe 3? They smelled yummy.

Birthday girl!!!

After lunch we went shopping for maybe 2 hours. We found THE wig at the
first stop. Amazing. Shopping is a really dumb thing to be good at but damn
I have a talent! And the day ended the best way a day can end…. I own another

RAY GUN!

Adventures in Dating-Week 1

Filed under: adventures in dating — pandaberry @ 1:49 am

Ok well we’re at the end of Week 1 of my dating adventure.
How did the boys do? Dumbly. Is that a word? I had two
guys I was sorta chatting with online but neither of them
could seem to make the move from ‘hi, it’s tuesday and i like
that movie we talked about’ to ‘hey want to do…ANYTHING AT ALL.’
It is incredibly hard to hold back and not do the asking out. Ugh!
It’s really not that hard dudes. And it’s even easier online cause
if you get rejected guess what! You don’t ever have to chat
me up again!

So I took myself out to dinner tonight and had a lovely time. Even
made a date..with Katy for lunch tomorrow. Yay! A date with a hottie
that I know will end with a phone call the next morning haha, sweet!

Adventures in Dating

Filed under: adventures in dating — pandaberry @ 3:08 am

Up until October of last year I was in a serious relationship
that was expected by both of us to end in marriage. I used
to thank my lucky stars that I would never have to go on a
first date ever again. Well either I pissed Buddha off or he
lost the remote to his dvd player and got bored and decided
to put me back on the dating scene. Dating? Me? Ahh!!!

Here’s the thing. I’ve never been asked out before. Really.
Let’s take a look at what we’re working with here:

Now I’m, let’s be honest here, so fucking cute that I would win a cute
contest against Drew Barrymore, a newborn kitten and a female gorilla who
has taken the newborn kitten as her own baby. Yeah.

Now those that know me might say Tim -that’s what my friends call me- Tim,
you don’t give boys a chance to ask you out because you always ask them first.
Ah, true. If someone strikes me as awesome I don’t like wasting time. If we go out
and I have a good time I’ll call/email whatever and say ‘hey had a good time wanna
go out again?’. Also, since being an adult I’ve really only dated two guys and they
were both friends first. However since I’m not really friends with any straight guys
at the moment this route, while my favorite, is not going to happen. Unless a straight
guy out of my past comes along and is lovely and charming I have to find new blood.

Which brings me to my experiment. What happens when you take a cute, wacky brunette
and put her out in the world waiting for a cute boy to ask her out?? Well I don’t know!!
For the next month I’m going to use an online dating site as well as going out more
frequently and see what happens.
