To Do:  1. Get Hobby 2. Floss

Here's what I need to do: 1. Get Hobby, 2. Floss. Blogging just gets in the way.

I Do

I received my first blog-related marriage proposal on Thursday. I am certain that saurabh's comment is sincere. Plus, Rhinocrisy was a Blog of Note, so he is quite a catch.

I have been wondering why the proposals have not been flooding my email box up to this point.

I have considered posting photos of myself. But I want you to love me for my thoughtful insights on the world and my deeply important commentary on culture, society, politics, and shoes. I don't want my stunning good looks and nearly incomprehensible cuteness to get in the way. Also, I am humble.

As a modern woman, I thought that perhaps I should be more direct. I have drafted a post highlighting my positive attributes; including, but not limited to:

1. Curly hair
2. Regular flossing

This same draft also is painfully honest about my areas needing improvement; including, but not limited to:

1. Currently unable to think of any.

I am pleased that saurabh was able to see my many fabulous qualities without the aid of my modest post (which I am saving in the event that he is not sincere).

It dawned on me that the reason that I have not had a steady stream of suitors is due to a simple error on my part. I slight typo that I should have caught. The name of this blog should correctly read:

To Do: Get Hubby, 2. Floss

I must learn to proofread.

rofl - okay, okay...NOW it all makes sense. heck, I'd marry you. ;o)

At 9:07 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


You do understand that I can't wear white, right?

At 9:10 PM, Blogger Darlene said...

mist: that's okay - neither can I. Hey, you can wear "gunmetal grey".

At 9:16 PM, Blogger Avitable said...

You've already got a Boyfriend. I think you're all set.

My wife has asked me to stop proposing to all of the intelligent, clever female bloggers, so you're out of luck this time, m'dear.

At 9:33 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


I love gunmetal gray.


So, your wife thinks I'm intelligent and clever? Have her call me.

At 9:49 PM, Blogger ChiefMommy Owl said...

All this time blogging and i've never gotten a proposal. I was too stupid to realize I should even be insecure about it.

Thanks :)

At 10:02 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


What the h*ll do you blog for?

I've seen your blog, you're not stupid. There's words on there that I don't even understand.

Thanks for coming by.

At 11:22 PM, Blogger Some Random Girl said...

LOL. So....are you gonna say yes?

At 4:14 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


We were totally made for eachother.

At 4:23 AM, Blogger Irish Church Lady :) said...

So g is just your boy toy ~ your hobby?

When you find a hubby, where will g sleep?

At 4:24 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


Who says G's a man?

At 4:53 AM, Blogger Darlene said...

Hmmm...I was wondering about that.....if g is just or man or your spot. LOL

At 4:55 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


Nearly spit Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke on my keyboard.

At 5:25 AM, Blogger LoRi~fLoWer said...

Dear Mist1 darling...I hate to tell you, but I posted that same exact picture sometime in January and it all went downhill from there. It's kind of like taking the Lord's name in vain.

At 6:01 AM, Blogger karma lennon said...

Incredibly jealous of your proposal. The last time someone proposed to me I was asleep. And apparently I said no. And he got all mad. It was funny! :)

At 6:52 AM, Anonymous Odat said...

I appreciate your humility...Ms. Peace Schrimp..(LMAO) and I think you should go for it....commentaries on "shoes" always wins them over.


At 7:01 AM, Blogger Matt said...

I totally thought that was "get a hobby" and that I could relate. I can see now how that's closely linked to flossing.

At 7:07 AM, Blogger Mindless Dribbler said...

Oh Mist1...i feel your pain, but honestly, I'm just not sure I'm quite ready for that kind of commitment and all...

How long can you wait?

What a difference one letter makes huh? I got the shit slapped out of me for replacing one letter in a love note to my boss' wife once.

At 8:00 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


I'm already at rock bottom.


You can't ask someone in their sleep. That's against The Rules.


Thank you. Very few people can see how fabulously humble I am.


I am kinda flossy.


It's okay, I'm afraid of commitment too. And of being committed.

Love to see a copy of that letter.

At 8:40 AM, Blogger Miss Britt said...

ROTFLOL, lord you constantly crack me up. Hell, I'd marry you if it was legal!

nice, nice ring by the way. does he have any idea what it's going to cost to keep you maintained?

At 8:43 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


I suppose we could elope to Boston.

The ring is merely a suggestion.

At 8:51 AM, Blogger Schell said...

OOOhhhh, I want a Tiffany ring. Gorgeous. Hope your having a good week Mist. Gotta go work on my hobby, I mean hubby. Ha.

At 9:14 AM, Blogger Cheeky said...

Only get married if there is serious bling....I mean - a girl has to have her standards and well the physical stuff goes away, the mind deteriorates, but there should always be money for shoes....

At 9:45 AM, Blogger Miss Britt said...

I'll happily elope to Boston. But that ring? Would NOT be just a mere suggestion.

A girl's gotta have standars. Especially if she's switching teams. I listen to sports news - I know a trade like that is expensive.

At 10:16 AM, Anonymous jali said...

Still cracking up - This is one of my favorite places on the web to visit.

blogger is acting ig'nant today so I'm posting as an "other".

At 12:04 PM, Blogger anastasia said...

This sounds like the start of a beautiful relationship.

At 12:27 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


Is your hubby your hobby or is your hobby your hubby?

Wait, now I'm confused.


Everyone keeps saying that a girl has to have Spaniards. I don't understand why.


Our brief affair is over. Sports news? I'm sorry. I hope we can still be friends.


I always check the "other" box. Thanks.


I think I've already scared him off. I wish I hadn't bought that dress now. Dammit.

At 12:40 PM, Blogger Schell said...

Uhh, now that you mention it, probably both, good thing he works so I have time to do other stuff. He He.

At 1:11 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


You've got a hobby and a hubby? Where do you find the time?

At 1:51 PM, Blogger K said...

hey mist. maybe proofreeding (you like that huh) should be number tres on the list :).

At 2:13 PM, Blogger Schell said...

I don't work and the kids are gone, but yeah, I still don't get everything done. Probably because I can't get my lazy ass off of this computer, (my hubby probably thinks the same thing) Sigh!!!!!

At 2:56 PM, Blogger Miss Britt said...

Well to be FAIR... the husband listens to sports news and I overhear.

But yeah, it's probably best. I would make a horrible lesbian. *sigh*

At 3:45 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


I can only do so much in a day. Proufreading is to dificult.


You type really well with your ass. I am impressed.


I'll remember our brief time together for as long as I can. Thanks for the explanation about the sports news.

At 3:45 PM, Blogger saurabh said...

Oh crap!

Listen, this is not a retraction of any kind, but I didn't at first appreciate what was involved in this enterprise. Since I don't have quite all of the $17,000 required to purchase a ring worthy enough to adorn your gracile hand, I must adjourn to the jungles of Colombia, where tough but profitable work is available for a man of my abilities. I'll be gone til November.

To all you doubting Mustafahs, let me assure you that my proposal was absolutely NOT in jest. It's clear we're made for each other. After all, I floss every day, too.

At 3:54 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


I'm pretty sure I ran a man off to the jungles of Columbia once before. If you see him, tell him I want my cd's back.

I'll wait for you...

Waxed or unwaxed floss? Flavored?

At 4:22 PM, Blogger C said...

That's an unsavory typo. The amount of suitors you have let pass you by is must be an unimaginable number.

At 4:28 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


I have learned a valuable lesson. They really missed the boat.

At 5:41 PM, Blogger Schell said...

Oh, you are quick, seriously lmao here.

At 6:06 PM, Blogger C said...

You have a simply wicked sense of humor. You must be much like I am less the lack of necessary improvements.

At 6:11 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


I am quick, but it's the comments that make this blog.

You all crack me up.

At 6:15 PM, Anonymous Meloncutter said...

Hay Yall.

Heck, I would marry ya in a hearbeat. I like a saucy chick with attitude. But my current spouse would tear my leg off and beat me to death with the stump.

However, I was probably a good thing I got married them 27 years ago. Now I done got old and gas has set in, so striking up a new romance with someone who hasn't had their olfactory senses burned out might be out of the question.

I suggest we just be blogging friends. LOL

Love yer postings.

Later Yall....

At 6:16 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


Don't go making all those necessary improvements. It will make me look bad.

At 6:20 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


I have a highly sensitive nose. Plus, the sight of your stump might make me gag. I also have a highly sensitive stomach.

Don't go thinking I'm all sensitive now.

At 11:59 PM, Blogger The Naked Nerd said...

OMFG - The internet is the hook-up master for couples. Funny how their photo never looks like real life. Must have been another light, on another world. :P

At 4:30 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


I don't really look like a fish.

At 7:30 PM, Blogger SabilaK said...

Blog proposals are great. I wonder if one can exchange vows online because, really, who wants to fly/drive to Vegas?
Mist, are you sure we aren't related? We share the same fabulous qualities and modesty.....

At 9:22 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


Online proposals are so much easier.

You are right we are both fabulously modest. I love that about me. And by default, you too.

At 8:17 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Man. I've never gotten a blog proposal. I did get two "I love yous" but one was from a guy and the other from an underaged girl, so neither counted.

At 8:17 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


Envy me. Or propose. Your choice.

At 12:02 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'll probably have to run the second one by my wife first, but if she's into it, I'm on my knee.

At 4:57 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


Well, I'll have to think about it. I don't mind the multiple wife thing. If you can handle us, go for it. But I always preferred the status of first wife.
