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?

The "greatest American"?
Ronald Reagan was chosen by "the people" in a poll/tv series that A&E had been running for the past month. Huh? I don't get it... is it that stupid "tear down this wall Mr. Gorbechov!" (sp? I actually looked it up but I can't remember it!)...ok that was one good thing. But um what about the nuclear weapon mass production? the Iran Contra deal? Maybe I just can't remember enough of the "good" stuff because I was pretty little when he was in office...but...

I would've picked Martin Luther King (in fact I voted for him my 3 allotted times this week)
I also selected Rosa Parks (she was picked off in a preliminary round)
I also selected Ben Franklin (he rounded off the top 5)
I also selected George Washington Carver (he was picked off in the prelims as well).
I also selected Walt Whitman and Mark Twain (they both were canned in the prelims...I wouldn't have actually said they were the greatest but I love them both).

Apparently my greatest Americans aren't that popular. It's always a popularity contest isn't it. And wouldn't you know that the president from Hollywood won. Was that mean? Too bad.
