A Whole Mess-a-Sumptin

Oh, my dear chitlins, I'm so sorry to have worried all y'all. I got some very sweet email messages from some of you, concerned that yet another blogger had bit the dust. But not CruiserMel. I just nibbled at the dust a little bit. And I want you all to know that I'm feelin' y'all, really feelin' y'all. Thanks for the concern, but actually there was no reason to fret, sweetie-pies.

Let's see - what has kept me from da blog? Oh yeah - a guy. Let me write that again, because it just looks so great. A guy. Oooo, gives me shivers.

I'd actually forgotten that when I met him, I completely forgot to give him the wrong phone number, as per usual, and so imagine my surprise when J called me last week. My brain went all numb and asked itself: "Self? You gave your real number to a guy you met in a bar?" Um, yeah. But I remembered that he was really cute, at least in my buzzy state that night. So I decided to give it a whirl and was pleasantly surprised when yes, indeed, he IS really cute! Anyhoo, um yeah, I'm blushing. And I'm actually trying to keep an open mind about all the usual stuff that I seem to be able to find undesirable, such as: he doesn't drive exactly the kind of car I like, he's too hyper, he's too young (yeah, he's young!), he lives 30 minutes away, he lives in a apartment, he's divorced, he's got a kid, he likes heavier music than I do, he gets speeding tickets, blah blah blah. What's important is the guy seems to genuinely care about CruiserMel. Yikes.

Another reason I've been neglectful is what I've learned today was not my impending death, but rather an upper respiratory infection that kicked me to the curb on Monday and left me there to rot until this morning. I didn't even feel like reading your blogs, much less write on mine. Mucho apologies, my friends.

Yesterday as I was propped up on the sofa with CruiserDog watching CourtTV, something caught my eye in the backyard. At first I thought it was a squirrel, but CruiserDog lost his friggin' mind by barking so loudly that I had to investigate. Apparently, this is what goes on in my backyard during the workday.

WTF? I don't have a pool or live near a creek. I have no idea where they came from, but they waddled around the yard for a couple of hours. They let me get right up near them to feed them some bread. They followed a squirrel around like he was their friend. It was too weird. The guy let the little woman eat until she was as wide as she is long and he just stoicly looked around for predators. Isn't that the sweetest? I like a man who lets his woman eat like a pig. Come to think of it, they may have hung around that long because I'll bet she couldn't take flight with that load of cargo on those hips.
So that's about all I have for all y'all this time. I promise to post something in shorter time next time around. A week is way too long to be away from ya.
*smoochies to the guys* *hugs to the gals* Have a great one, whatever "one" that might be.

Last, but definitely not least - A YOUNG HOTTIE? YAY FOR YOU!!!

CruiserMel said...

Tug - I KNOW! Yay for me!

Dezdmona said...

So, is he a Boy Toy and you are just enjoying the adoration or do you like him, too? Flirting with the danger zone 'eh?

Love the ducks...you've fed them, now they're yours. CruiserDogs daily entertainment.
Love how they treat each other...we could learn from them.

Golightly said...

aww - let's hear it for the boy. younger and hot - whoo hoo!!! sorry you were feeling ill. maybe all this darn rain brought in your ducks in the backyard?!
hee hee ;)

Williebee said...

Wabbit season! Duck Season! Wabbit Season!... aw screw it. Let's order a pizza.

Hmm. You deserve a nice young guy who can keep up. Hopefully that speeding thing just happens in the car.

CruiserMel said...

Dez - I'll let you know...but seriously, I think I'm actually giving this one an honest chance. *gasp* And whaddya mean? Because I gave them a little bread, they're MINE? Oh my.
But you're right - it was very sweet how he shadowed her, from a little distance, and seemed to be looking around for any dangers. Or other suitors. Hmmmm.

CruiserMel said...

Golightly - Thanks for putting that song in my head now. Ya want me to go all Footloose on ya?

CruiserMel said...

Williebee - Yeah, my concern exactly. Good catch there, my man. ;)

Oh and pizza? You sooooo get me.

tfg said...

With the upcoming summer months, a cabana boy is a great idea.

Lindystar said...


OOOooooo a hottie. Yumityfreakingyum.

I can say for you that when I found mine I thought No-freaking-way, cuz everything was different than what I was used to. BUUUT it's worked out beautifuly and I wouldn't trade him for anything.

So go for it, have some fun and see where this goes. I like that you said he seems to care about you. That's what I want to hear.

OK and here's the obvious though, have you googled him? Checked him on the felony site in your state? Checked him on the sex offender list yet? You never know so get your but on it and then I can feel better.

And tell him that if he fu*ks with you that you've got an insane blogger friend with plenty of free air miles that is not afraid to come out and kick some ass if need be.

Ok. I think that's all I need to say for today but don't you worry I'm on the porch and I've got my shot-gun on my hip if anything comes up.

Go get em girl.

"Isn't that the sweetest? I like a man who lets his woman eat like a pig."

I might flip this around and put this in the next birthday card to my wife...she's so good to me like that...

Have a kick ass weekend!

CruiserMel said...

tfg - I wonder if cabana boys are able to get rid of ducks....

Lindy - goin' hillbilly gangsta, are we? Actually, that's very sweet. You're choking me up.

Rockdog - That sounds like a marriage made in heaven. Or in my backyard.

Sassy Blondie said...

Cruiser, you are my new idol..and does your young man have a brother?
Slim pickins in Big D these days, lady!

Enjoy! And make him dance!

CruiserMel said...

Sassy - that's an understatement about Dallas guys. So true. I'm not sure what you meant about making him dance, but I've seen him dance, and the dude's not an embarrassment on the dancefloor, so that's a plus, right?

Sassy Blondie said...

Cruiser-The dance comment: Mad TV when it was much funnier had a skit with an old wrinkly tanned lady named Dixie. She had a Cabana boy and would say, "Dance Cabana Boy! Dance!" (It was really funny and full of sexual innuendo) Sorry to be obscure!

I'm just jealous...;o)But really, does he have a brother? lol

CruiserMel said...

Sassy - Ohhhhhhhh. Yeah, I'm an SNL gal so I didn't know about the skit. And for the record - I'm not tanned. LOL BUT - you raised an important question about the brother thingy. Um, I guess I should ask about that kinda thing. And I will get back to ya.
