June is a tramp

So, I went on a date yesterday, with a whole different boy.

I KNOW! Once June starts something, she really gets into it.

We will call this guy Daniel Boone, seeing as we met under a giant Daniel Boone statue.

Dan
Who knew Daniel Boone was a marionette? And also that he seems to have arthritis issues?

Anyway, Daniel Boone my date and I are basically the same person, except he is a boy and I am supposedly a girl. Seriously. We were emailing 90284520582034 times, because neither of us can shut up, and one time at the bottom of his email he wrote, "Sent from my desktop" and I realized my emails must have said "Sent from my iPhone," and I always say something stupid when people send me an email that says Sent from My BlackBerry or iPhone or whatever. I usually say "Sent from my old cheap computer."

So when I wrote him back, I had my iPhone say, "Sent from my pretentious phone" and he shot back: "That's what I set up my iPhone to say all the time! Did you know that? Did you do that on purpose?"

Also, he lived in Seattle. I lived in Seattle. He has a dog (chocolate Lab mixed with something anxious, he says). He stopped yesterday to greet every dog we saw. Also, we sat on a rock on a little lake and got out our pretentious iPhones and showed each other pictures of our dogs. Nature. A wonderful place to whip out your gadgets. So to speak.

The question is, do I want to date myself? I'm already stuck inside myself. Do I want my own self along with me?

At any rate, it was a fun day. We walked all around this historic little town, and I could not help thinking about how Marvin would have loved this town. There was all sorts of ridiculous stuff to see:

Huntyerkid
but I like how all I managed to take a picture of was this ludicrous ad in a window. Why is this man wearing a shirt with his circulatory system on it?

I am managing to not date anyone today, I mean unless someone at work finds me absolutely irresistible and has to make out with me by the copy machine or something.

It is hard being me.

P.S. Faithful Reader Mary V. made us team buttons! Thank God there are grownups who read me. The link to get your button and put it on your blog, or print it out and laminate it, or take it to your local tattoo parlor, is up there on the upper-right of my blog.

  1. Marcy, enjoy Seattle! Isn’t there a NEEDLE that you have to see? And be sure and stop and say hello to Meredith and Derek at Seattle Grace.

  2. Since I am married to a complete redneck we have LOTS of cammo, but the circulatory system is one I have never seen.
    So glad you are dating around! Have fun! Why not? As long as your not dying…

  10. So.. is Marvin dating? Cause it totally made me sad when you said he would have enjoyed the town. Can’t he come back (during a rainstorm, when another guy is there) and bang on the door and tell you he made the biggest mistake of his life? Can you tell I just can’t handle change? And I feel like I need to see a pic of Male June, because in the picture in my head he looks INSANE. On you, however, your personality is charmingly eccentric and CUTE. My SO is my complete opposite and makes me do things no one else ever could. We danced in the aisles at the Earth, Wind and Fire concert last night..

  12. Dick Whitman sounds really, really nice, I must say, and I feel sad to see him supplanted by Daniel Boone… but it’s pretty darn awesome, and rare, to find another you. HE LOVES DOGS! And he’s funny! Could it get any better?

  13. I agree, you shouldn’t tell the dates about your blog. That way you can share all the gory details with us. But you already told Dick, right? So now he’s going to be reading about all your future dates here. Weird.
    Team Bug? No, thanks!
    I also thought maybe Daniel Boone is in the closet, if it felt like you were having a date with yourself.

  14. My name is Pamela and I am Soul Sister #2 and I gave a big party for my kids yesterday. 35 came and 14 rsvps were no shows! Who DOES THAT? says:

    Catching up with BBP after the last few days in graduation party planning (party was Sunday…great fun!) and work deadline hell. I’ve missed a lot!
    June, I never seem to be attracted to guys who are so much like me. Hah! guess that means I wouldn’t date myself. My husband and all of the men I dated is/were such challenges! So different. I’m curious to see how that plays out for you…
    Team Lu all the way here, being that I have huge Tina Knowles nostrils and I’ve been working out like crazy to get my swoop back!

  18. Tina Knowles nostrils. Dying. And Daniel Boone is NOT GAY. Geez. Anyway, I had a discussion with Dick Whitman about exclusivity and warned him I would be taking about other dates on here, and I think he is not reading my blog now. I think he only looked at it the first day I told him about it. Also too, he assured me he was seeing other women and now? I HATE THOSE BITCHES.

    I wanted to call around, Sadie. My mother said I should call under the guise of “is everything ok?” but I refrained ’cause I am trained well…obviously NOT by my mother!
    But I have since learned of a sickness and an elderly mother’s fall and a fight with a hubby and a little league game change. The others remain a mystery.

  25. Dear Hulk,
    We were wrong to break up with such a warm, caring, loving man who is great with his daughter and has in own interests so he isn’t smothering.
    And is an absolute dynamo in the sack.
    Please forgive us.

    As to being like/unlike your mate/date, my husband and I are alike in the following ways:
    I am nuts – he loves me
    I am interested in weird, pointless things – he loves me
    I am absorbed with my self and my own thoughts – he loves me
    I love me – he loves me
    Oh, and I almost forgot:
    I spend too much money – he figures out how to get more.
    Also, the more worked up, overwrought and dramatic I get about any subject or event under the sun, the calmer he becomes. And, he loves me.
    (I really do love and adore him as well, but it’s easier and better for him if he thinks the balance is perpetually tipped in my favor.)
    And would it be June Boone? That’s nice and rhym-ie.

  29. Oh, dear. We all forgot about Marcy. Marcy, I lived there 700 years ago. But when I was there I liked walking around Queen Anne and looking at rich people houses and I liked going down to the market and eating at the Pink Door. It is just this pink door in an alley, with no sign, but it is worth finding. Also? You could go to Archie McPhees, which is where I get my inflatable meat loafs and so on to send people.

    Ah, the difference in the male and female train of thought – I was right along with Hulk when he started talking about John Cusack but it screeched to a ha,t when he referenced High Fidelity. My feminine mind went to the scene from Say Anything.
