MySpace: A Love Story

Some of you have wondered how Hubs, real name Rob, and I met.  I'm finally getting around to tell you that story.  This probably should have been one of the first things I posted about.  OOPS!  Oh well, better late than never...

Rob found me on MySpace through a mutual friend of ours.  He would tell you we met through AIM since that's where our first contact was.  He saw my screen name on my profile and saw that it was the same style as his (just our names, example: kaitlinlastname) and he also later admitted he thought I was hot, so he instant messaged me.

When he first instant messaged me I was confused and not interested.  I soon found out he had a girlfriend which was a turn off.  I'm not sure how it happened but we just continued talking to each other on AIM.

We talked all day, everyday.  We both had the Sidekick 3 so it was easy for us to talk all the time.  We had AIM at our fingertips.

A few months after we started talking, I started dating a guy I liked that just came home from being station in Virginia for the Marines.  We dated for a few months and during that time I can't remember ever talking to Rob.  I was distracted with the Marine.

The Marine eventually dumped me.  I don't know why, but I'm thankful.  He was a complete douche anyways.  Soon after Rob started talking to me again on AIM.  And it turned out he was newly single too.

We went back to talking as frequently as we had before, maybe more.  I remember waking up talking to him and falling asleep talking to him.  I talked to him at work, at the movies, hanging out with friends.  I know people were annoyed with me being on the phone chatting with him all the time, but I was slowing falling in love with him.  He listened.  He made me laugh.  He made me smile.  I could tell he cared.  Even if we were just chatting.

One night we had this conversation (this is the original conversation thanks to Rob saving it from AIM from his Sidekick):

Rob: Hey, I'm gonna ask you a question, cos I'm drunk, I wouldn't. But I'm drunk. Okay with that?
Me: okay?
Rob: You know I like you, right?
Rob: Just an e crush though :]
Me: uhm. do now, apparently.
Rob: That and I'm drunk. So yeah. ..disregard
Me: oh?
Rob: Well not to drink, but, enough.
Rob: To tell you that lol
Me: was that the question?
Me: oh. haha. feelings are reciprocated.

After this conversation a stronger relationship blossomed.

About two weeks later Rob asked me on a date, July 7th 2007.  I accepted.  He picked me up at my parents house (which is the first time and place we ever met), came in to say hello to my parents and off we went.  We went to the movies to see Transformers.

I remember being nervous and I know he was too.  I can't remember what we talked about, but it was a fun night.  I remember him putting his hand on my knee for a second and I know he was so scared to even touch me.  After the movie he dropped me off at home, gave me a hug goodnight and left.  And soon after we started talking on AIM, saying all the things we were too nervous to say in person.  It was a wonderful night and the start of our relationship. <3

At a Christmas party for my work, our first together. 2007

Wordless Wednesday: ANTM Edition

I'm looking forward to ANTM tonight. ;)

Random Tuesday Thoughts


I really want to get this job I applied for at Bookmans.  I don't even know if they're hiring though.  It would be great!  I wouldn't have to hide my tattoos anymore.  And I could work with books, which is something I've always wanted to do.  I'm also going to try applying at Barnes & Noble and Borders though.  I'm not sure if there are any other smaller bookstores around me.

Hubs might try to get a job working at Fry's with his best friend.  The hours are more stable and a lot better then the ones he would be working at Pizza Hut.  Speaking of hours, he has to work from 3pm until close this week.  And closing is 12:30am, but he probably won't get out of there until 2am.

I don't know if I ever mentioned it on here, but my nephew is being baptized on October 17th and I was asked to be his Godmother.  I was completely surprised.  I'm not a religious person, but I do feel very honored that they asked me to be his Godmother.

What's going on in your life?

Five Question Friday

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?

I would love to have a British accent.

2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)

That depends how tired I am.

3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?

I do use public restroom and I do sit on the toilet, unless it's really nasty.  Then I use the hover method or I just hold it or use toilet paper to cover it if holding it isn't an option.

4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?

Oh man, I have no idea.  I don't really have a favorite celebrity.

5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?

We went to the movies to see Transformers.

Hubs showed this to me and it makes me laugh. 

Random Tuesday Thoughts


I've decided to try out a new meme.  Thank you Lindsey for introducing me to it.

I recently added some more books to Paperback Swap.  Check them out here.  PBS is awesome.  Recommend some books for me to read.

Speaking of books.  This weekend I got like 20 books from my mom.  She went through her book shelf to get rid of a ton so I looked through all of them and picked out some of the ones that I wanted.

I want a baby and I get really envious of other people with them or with one on the way.  And this makes me feel like an awful person. :-/ And so far two of the shows I watch have pregnancy stories now. Chuck and One Tree Hill.

I am not happy at work.  I need a break or a new one.  Or to not work at all.

Hubs recently got a job at Pizza Hut.  He is training for the Assistant Manager position.  The schedule is going to be a lot different than what we were used to.  He will more than likely be the closing Assistant Manager.  So he'll leave for work when I get home from work and will come home a few hours after I've already gone to bed.  It's going to be an adjustment. That's for sure.

That's all the random I have in me for right now.  Have a wonderful Tuesday!

I am feeling so out of touch with the blogging community.  I don't like it.

I'm hardly on Twitter anymore.  I've been doing a little better this last week.

I haven't blogged anything worthwhile in weeks.

We're finally done moving and unpacking.  Now all that is left is straightening the place up a bit.  Pictures will be coming soon!

I'm hoping I'll get back into the swing of things though.  I'm going to try.

I've been wondering; what type of things do you like to see on a blog?  I'd love to get some input from some of my readers.  What do you want to see here?  (Obviously more posts would be a good thing.)

Wordless Wednesday

And this one because it's funny.

Happy Birthday To Me!
