Highlights of the Day:

* So it was Saturday yesterday and you guys know my drill... head to the Farmer's Market. Well as we were approaching I start seeing detour signs and police cruisers and realize that this weekend is Rod Run weekend. Twice a year my town has this huge classic car show and since I was in Philly last weekend I didn't get the heads up. Usually I avoid it like the plague but we decided since we were up we'd go. OMG it was so cool.

Oh and BONUS:

Farmer's Market = Tons of woman and vegetables
Classic Car Show = Tons of men and hot cars

HELLO?! Why didn't I ever go to this thing before??? LOL ;) no wonder I'm single. I'm a clueless goober.

* Get this... I actually slept through the night last night. Went to bed at midnight or so and woke up at 6:30. I had hideous dreams (not a highlight) but I wasn't staring at the ceiling at 3 AM or making pancakes.

* The raffle prizes for the LA OH Event are getting cooler and cooler. Are you going?

Listening to: Evanescence "Bring Me To Life"

So, these men at the car show, were they hunks, did they own the hot cars, did they have lots of money, were any of them attentive, and are you possibly going to see any of them again?

Maybe you should retrain your brain to start liking antique car, gun, and boat shows, as well as baseball/basketball/football games, and anywhere else single men might hide out. You will have to do some research on where you need to extend your radar.

Keep in mind you will still need to have your high standards in place, as I would think some of these activities might attract some undesirables. LOL But they can't all be bad.

I love classic car shows. I love hot guys. I love food. Oh to find a hot guy with a hot car that cooks yummy low carb food. My dream! I need to get myself to the farmers market more often. Here in Lake Elsinore it's on like Wednesday night. Odd.
