True Friends

Note to my followers:

Names have been changed to protect what little reputation the people I know have.

So today was Sophie's Birthday. She is either 36 or 37, she cannot remember. Apparently, in her world, knowing your own age, is irrelevant. Anyways, we have a tradition, that on our birthdays, we try to go to the Olympus Day Spa for an afternoon. So this morning, Sophie, Lucy, and I, got up and headed out to fulfil the tradition.

For those of you that have never heard of this place, all I can say is, it is a part of heaven on earth. It is a Korean style, women's only, day spa with different temperature hot tubs, and heated rooms, heated floors. It is the ultimate escape for a woman to just lounge around, forget about life, and focus on your personal self. You can get body scrubs and massage, all types of spa treatments, if you so desire. If I have not sold you on this heaven, then this will......YOU GET TO WALK AROUND NAKED!! Yep, ladies, butt ass naked. There are areas where have to wear a robe, but leave your issues at the door and join the fun.

I am not going to lie, but part of the draw to this place is all the nakedness. This may sound like a self -help or Lifetime Movie moment, but, I love seeing beautiful women in all shapes and sizes, walking around with enough confidence to be naked in front of friends and strangers. You get to know each other right away, you all have a common naked bond. And watching the little old Korean women pain-staking scrub and wash and scrub and wash their skin, is amazing. These women are community that do not seem to have any problem grabbing a scrub brush and washing the back of the lady next to them.

Well Sophie and I have been there quite a few times, but have never tried the sit down and scrub method that the Korean women try. Every once in a while, you see a non-Korean women getting in on the experience, and the times I did, I always thought, wow they are brave. Well today Sophie and I were brave. While Lucy was getting her body scrub (which will have to be a hole other post to explain that one), we tried our hand at washing each others backs, just like the Korean women. Now if that is not true friendship, then I don't know what is.

Today just topped of an already amazing weekend.

Dating Weekend

I have had a busy weekend. I went out on two dates. That's right, two. Friday I meet the son from "Confession Time". He was good looking, and it was a very long evening. That is about it on that one. It is too bad to, his mom seemed great. Then today I meet Bachelor #2. He was good looking, and a real gentleman. He opened doors, paid for lunch, and the conversation was fun and light-hearted. He even went shoe shopping with me, that was defiantly a shocker. When I jokingly asked him if he wanted to go, and he said yes, I think I looked around for Candid Camera. I was not expecting that answer. I guess I am just that awesome, and he didn't want the date to end.

Confession Time

Confession Time. I admit that I think online dating is for losers, I also admit that I have tried it, recently in fact. I guess that makes me a loser.
So the story goes like this....
I had been sick for the last three days. Home bound and feeling sorry for myself, I see a commercial which says something about the beginning, so I hop online, set myself up an account and get a 7 day free trial. Within minutes of signing up, I receive my first wink. I open the profile and realize that I think I know this guy. He wants pictures, which are being approved, so are not yet posted. I write back telling him that I think know him and he looks very familiar to me. We go back and forth a couple of emails, and I am starting to wonder if he even remembers me. So I send him an email telling him how I know him, thinking maybe it will jar his memory. This is the actual email from me.

I think I have meet you before. And if you are the person I think you are, we meet when you where building a house, had a brief but passionate (or drunken, what ever you want to call it) affair and then went separate ways. If I was not you, then you have a twin, and his name was Bryan.

This is what I received in return:

Confession time
This is Bryan`s mom. I am sorry for leading you astray and I`m really sorry if Bryan hurt you. I just want him to find his soul mate. He really is a shy man when it comes to relationships. But I can see that he`s lonely. He needs a girl in his life to share activities. I truly don`t know if he is who you`re thinking of because he does not share his thoughts with me. He does not know that I wrote to you and I should be ashamed of myself for doing so but I worry about him. I really, really want for him to be happy. He just needs a little push. If you can forgive me and if there still is some feelings for him then please call him. He is worth it. He`s a wonderful man when you really get to know him. You just have to push him along for awhile. I`m sorry if I hurt your feelings.

Needles to say, I am so embarrassed that all I could do is laugh.
