The only good thing about G.I. Joe: Retaliation

This weekend I got duped into seeing G.I. Joe: Retaliation, I agreed on the hopes of seeing Channing Tatum and The Rock shirtless and that never happened! I was about to write this movie off until this man showed up on-screen. Lee Byung Hun plays Storm Shadow in this epic disappointment but seeing him running around half-naked did numb the pain a little. So gals I am saving you from getting duped by your man, here is the highlight of the movie. Enjoy!

My playlist is out to get me down..

Saturday after my drum lesson I was happily driving home when these four songs from my playlist came on. I have about a 1000 songs on my playlist and these are the 4 that had to play in a row…Seriously while I do love each of these songs individually; collectively they are mood kills.

Staind – Something to Remind You


Slipknot – Snuff


Evans Blue – Quote


Adele – Someone like you


Now you would think that would have been the saddest part of my evening BUT going to the grocery store on at 7:30 on a Saturday night is even sadder.  You will see the girl that is eating her emotions, the video gamer stalking up on supplies for his 24 Call of Duty marathon, and all the other lost single souls “like myself” with nothing better to do on a Saturday night.





Can you guess which guy got lucky after receiving his medal?

I am going to be honest I have not been following the olympics. However a friend texted me this pic knowing it would appeal to my pervey ways and she was right! I think maybe I should take up rowing, do they have a co-ed team?


Hit a Pub it’s Euro Cup 2012 Time

So single ladies it’s a good time to hit a pub with your single friends and start mingling as it’s European football’s quest for the Cup.

The games start on Friday June 8th and they are being played in Poland and the Ukraine.

For those of you that don’t know the rules of football, I’ve included the basics below:

* A match is played in two 45 minute halves, by two teams of eleven players each. The game begins with the toss of a coin, and the winning captain decides which goal to defend or to take the first kick off.

* All players must use their feet head or chest to play the ball. Only the goalkeeper is allowed to use their hands, and only within their designated goal area. The aim of the game is to score a goal, which is achieved by kicking or heading the ball into the opposition team’s goal

* If the ball touches or crosses the side line, it is thrown back in by the team that was not the last to touch the ball.

* The game is controlled by a central referee, and two linesmen. They award free kicks and penalties when rules are broken. For continual breaking of rules or for a bad foul, the player may be sent off.

If you want to know more, go to Wikipedia and read up on the teams and players:

If you don’t care to know the rules or whose playing, just know that there a ton of foreign cuties who you can stare at for 90 minutes. Enjoy!

I’ve joined a pool at work and I’ve picked the Netherlands to take it all, who are you cheering for?

Single Gals Guide to Home Ownership

It’s time I grow up or at least commit to something and unfortunately my car doesn’t count. So a couple of years back I decided to start looking for a condo. I had been on the fence for so long that I finally signed on the dotted line.

I bought a pre-construction condo in the Queen East part of DT. I like the area, I like my unit and I liked how things just fell into place. It’s not a large space but it’s my space, so what’s not to like?

In all honesty my purchase didn’t really hit me until this year. Sounds weird but I didn’t even blink when I wrote 4 large cheques but now that it’s coming closer to my condo being a reality I finally am feeling it.

I don’t know how many of you ladies have taken this step by yourself and trust me I wouldn’t have thought I would be doing this on my own but I am and I did and I couldn’t be happier.

Here are some things I have learned along the way.

  1. Save – You don’t want to be house poor and if you’re single you definitely don’t want to not have money for a social life. Save all you can so that your mortgage payments are low.
  2. Don’t buy above your means. – See point number 1, you don’t want to be house poor and you still want to go out so don’t buy something you can’t afford.
  3. Make sure you have a plan.                                                                                                                        a)Plan how much you want to spend, where you want to live etc…

This isn’t a new dress or shoes, this is a house or condo in my case, so make sure you love it.

4. Don’t be afraid to talk to people about mortgages, interest rates, ways to save etc…Your friends and family are free and the insights they can provide could save you a lot of time and money.

5.Don’t think you have to have it all done at once. I was stressing myself out thinking I needed to have my place all set when I moved in. This isn’t going to happen and it’s not a big deal. Take things as they come and don’t worry if you’re sitting on pillows for 8 weeks waiting for your new sofa.

Last but not least, enjoy every moment. You have worked really hard to own property, take pride in that and know that you have done something for yourself.

BTW – I know my condo will be delayed and I should find out this month for how long, so wish me luck, I really want to be in by the end of the year.
