Chicago Arrives

The Chicago package is secure. And no, I haven't gotten a look at his package. Have purchased cheapo digital camera. Photos hopefully to come. (No, Soxy Deb, not of his package. )

(From pre-pick up excitement via the web cam.)

Airports The threat of terrorism really put a damper on that romantic notion you can meet someone at the gate now.

We had to meet in baggage claim; even though he had no checked baggage, he came by and claimed me with a big hug. He is easily heads and shoulders taller than most. That makes me feel dare I say...small. Very nice, rare feeling.

Definitely no instant love feelings, but that's just fine by me. My previous love-at-first-sights have turned out really really poorly (including yesterday's unexpected visitor), so let's hear it for friendship first.

He loved the sign!

Ooops, oh yes, obviously, I'm blogging so I'm alive. Besides peeps, he's been informed that my brother is a former Marine (Actually, once a Marine, always a Marine, just no longer "active.") So he knows very well that my brother would hunt him down and kill him in ways most people just haven't been trained to do, as my brother has informed me every single time I've started dating someone. So, please, no more worries! xoxo

(If only I could send my brother after L instead.)

Just catching up

Holy crap...about the thing with your ex yesterday. What a scumbag. Good thing you are rid of him.

And I'm glad Chicago is TALL. I love that! My hub is actually a tiny bit shorter than I am, it doesn't really bother me, but I was always attracted to tall men. Probably for the same reason as you...it made me feel small.

Keep us posted on what goes on!

Woo Hoo! I agree those love-at-first-sights have always gone badly for me as well. Hopefully this one ends up a winner. Can't wait to hear more. :)

Awesome! Yes, keep us posted. I agree, love at first sight isn't always the best thing. Friends first!
Have a great time! *wink*

Just a Lovable Party Girl

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
