Hi friends!

Welcome to my little corner of Al Gore’s Internet. I’m Jareesa - I’m a scientist, a freelance writer, a knitter, wife to LM, mom to #BabyPi, and more. I love Queen Bey, squishy yarn, watching GBBO, and attempting to bake. Sometimes I rant, sometimes I rave, but I always tell the truth.

A Randompalooza...

I needed something cooler than just "random ish".... So I've blogged before about how I'm a Twitter junkie now...I'm really enjoying the site and interacting with people. And I even got a date out of Twitter, which was kinda mind-boggling (more about that later). So anyway, I added a link to the sidebar to take you to my Twitter page, or you can just click the button below and you can see all my Tweets...follow me if you aren't already, I think I'm pretty interesting.

One thing that I have started doing is a Question of the Day (QOD), which started out with me just wanting to get some feedback from the Twitter community. All of them have been relationship-centered so far, and I wanted to see if my thinking on certain subjects was similar to other folks. Its been really interesting, I've gotten lots of different perspectives and some interesting feedback. I'm doing them every weekday starting at 9AM, and I retweet them throughout the day.

Alright, so now I can talk about my date from Twitter...it was very random...I wanted to hit happy hour but I didn't have anyone to go with, so I tweeted it and one of my followers hit me up. We wound up meeting up at The Wine Room in Winter Park and that turned into dinner and that turned into a trip to the cigar & wine bar. I had a really good time. We work different schedules though, so it looks like for now we won't be able to link up during the week. We did hang out at the bar on Saturday night, which turned into an interesting people watching experience and I saw some couples get into some fights. This dude is pretty cool so far, the funniest thing is that we're both smartasses so we get along real well. Hopefully we'll go out again.

Speaking of dates, a dude I haven't talked to since the fall hit me up last night and asked me out. Very bizarre. He lives in Jacksonville & I told him I was gonna be booked for the next 2 weekends, so he decided he wants to drive to Orlando tonight to take me to dinner. Huh. We'll see what happens. I don't remember if I blogged about this, but the first time we met up (cause we met on BPM) this kid was a good 50 pounds heavier than he was in his pics, I didn't even recognize him at first! I flat-out told him he was false advertising by having skinnier pics up and he claimed he was working on losing it and it would be easy...so lets see if thats true. Either way, I'm getting a trip to Bonefish Grill out the deal - yum!

This weekend I'm hitting Miami and then next weekend LM and I are going on a cruise. I'm so excited, I need the rest and relaxation.

I have more random stuff to talk about, maybe I'll add it in another post...
