This is blog of a woman who didn't know what she wanted and so chased after dreams and men in search of the answers...drunken hilarity ensued. Then one day she met a man who was everything she wanted, but he wasn't so sure. Then she did the unthinkable; after they broke up she gave him this blog address and she let him into her mind as well as her heart. Unbelievably, even after sorting through the sordid archives of failed relationships, one night stands and her lusty (and embarassing) pursuit to secure the heart of a certain young line cook, John somehow managed to fall in love with her too. Melina and John were married a little over six months after they started dating, running away to Las Vegas to seal the deal. You can imagine what the over/under bet was to see if they'd even make it a year!! Over a year later and they are still going strong...this blog has become their story. Need to tell me something?

My Body Hates Me...
I've been trying to eat well, drink less and get a lot more sleep in preparation for the summer. Consider it my "making my insides match my outsides" just in time for summer! All three of these things I typically neglect because I like to pretend that I'm 20 and in college still. It's been going really well...except for the fact that my mom made me split french fries with her at Wendy's but, I think my bod can survive that.

The drinking thing is easy enough to do during the week because no one wants to go out during the week, which is fine with makes my work days much more enjoyable--for real. And anyway, what's the point if Drk isn't working during the week at thitwbar? He still works there on the weekends and that's good enough for me I guess. At least I get my secret Drk fix.

And then finally the sleep part. I've been going up to bed at like 9:45 and either reading or watching tv until I fall asleep...I'll admit that I've rarely seen 10:15 all week. This is good right? My body is telling me that I needed that extra sleep (since I typically wouldn't go to bed until 12 sober, or after 2 drunk during the week). Well I must've been wrong. Because I think I finally killed my "sleep debt" and created a surplus because this morning I woke up at 2:30 am feeling completely refreshed and awake! WTF?!? I tried to go back to sleep to no avail. I attempted to get the tv to lull me back into sleep, instead I became engrossed in some made for tv movie featuring Charlie O'Connell (Sp?) the most recent bachelor up against some crafty satanists. Fuck! Why do I enjoy B movies??

At 5:15 I gave up and just got up and now it's time to get ready for work and inevitably, I am tired. Go figure.
