So what do I look for in a potential life mate?
No I’m just kidding. That’s not what defines marriage for me. This is:
Just kidding. Marriage is more than shared interests. There is so much more than needs to be a part of it.
And of course, being a Christian, I’m also looking for this:
Yep, eventually I’ll find the right guy.
And I believe when I do find him, we’ll stay together forever.

How did she manage to overthrow the men? They didn’t take her seriously. They were preparing for war. After all, she was only a woman.
Now this is a film I didn’t really care for. It was HIGHLY sexist.
So the film is about four astronauts going on a mission to Venus to try and find out what it holds.
The interesting thing is that they used the same space station and uniforms from Forbidden Planet. I spotted it right away.
When the guys arrive at Venus they discover it full of only women!
I know you guys are thinking that it sounds really great. However you are dead wrong!!!! These women hate men.
The women take the men and lock ’em up.
The whole Venetian society is run by one woman, the Queen, who is the biggest man hater of them all.
Now Zsa Zsa Gabor is often thought to be “the queen of outer space”, but she is just an underling (unfair as she gets to be all over the poster). However, it is actually played by Laurie Mitchell. Anyway Queen Yllana (Mitchell) hates men, and when she took over the planet she rid them of them. She wears a mask and forces everyone else in a position of power to follow that credence.
While they lock up the men, we get to hear all the beautiful things that the men say:
Lt. Larry Turner: How can a doll as cute as that be such a pain in the neck?
Lovely guys, just lovely.
So the Queen doesn’t know how the men were able to get to Venus and that is something she is trying to figure out.
Capt. Neal Patterson: I didn’t say anything to the Queen. I didn’t want to put her on guard, but I’m beginning to think our being here is not an accident.
Prof. Konrad: I’m afraid I must agree with you.
Lt. Mike Cruze: What is that? What is that?
Capt. Neal Patterson: The ray that destroyed the space station and knocked us off our course may have originated right here.
Lt. Mike Cruze: Oh, come off it! How could a bunch of women invent a gizmo like that?
Lt. Larry Turner: Sure, and even if they invented it, how could they aim it? You know how women drivers are!
They find out that Talleah (Zsa Zsa Gabor) was the one who brought them. She leads a rebellion that doesn’t like being away from men. She wants to end the Queen’s rule.
She and the Captain of the vessel start a relationship. However, someone else is interested in the Captain. The Queen. She saw him and wants him.
He thinks he can use it to his advantage, by romancing her.
Talleah: I hate her! I hate that queen!
Lt. Mike Cruze: She’s jealous!
Lt. Larry Turner: Twenty-six million miles from Earth, and the little dolls are just the same.
So he tries to romance her and the Queen is actually eating it up. In fact he convinces her, that he likes her so much he won’t be turned away by her face. She is so convinced of his care that she allows him to unmask her.
She has horrible scarring on her face from radiation. This is why she hates men. No one would give her any attention because of her ugly face. She becomes so angry she wants to destroy the opera house…I mean the Earth!
“Queen Yllana: I’m going to allow myself the exquisite pleasure of watching you while I obliterate the Earth.”
While Queen Yllana is crazy and evil, but at the same time you understand it. She could have been a nice person, but if no one is willing to give her a chance and look past her outer self, than how could she not turn evil?
So in the end Talleah and her group take down the Queen and allow the men to roam free. And Talleah becomes the new queen.
Yeah, I didn’t really like it. It wasn’t that interesting and I hated the men’s attitude to the women. It was just so hard to get through.

This is exactly how I am about any relationship or commitment I make. I never do anything halfway, but throw my whole self in.
This does open you up to a lot of hurt and pain, but I’d rather put myself out there and get hurt then to never truly love others; platonically or romantically. I mean practically every relationship I’ve ever been in, I’ve always been the one to care more, and while it sometimes gets your heart run through a shredder, to quote Three Days Grace, “I’d rather feel pain than nothing at all.”

I’m serious this thing is gold!
I would totally go out with a guy if he said this to me. Of course right after he showed me his card. 😀
So if you have been following the Verne saga, you are well aware of his habit of popping up in random places and trying to talk to me/convince me to go out with him. I hadn’t seen him in weeks, and was convinced the reign of terror was over. (J/K it wasn’t that terrifying). But it wasn’t over. Just like in Return of the Living Dead, nothing is ever truly over, they only just begin once again.
So I went to a dance this week, and me and my friends were just cheering and having fun hanging out, when I look across the room and there he was! Verne! I want to be a lawyer Verne.
I’m not particularly proud of this but I hid away from him, and had my friends run interference for me until he ultimately left. I know that’s mean, but all I wanted was a nice time with my friends and no one to bother me. It was a great night beside that.
So I don’t understand how I always manage to run into people I don’t want to see, but never those I do. In fact it is always the people I want to leave me ALONE, that tend to come by. I’m a total Anne Elliot, avoiding people I don’t want to see, trying to get them to stay away from me. This is my total MO, more info on that later
So anyways today I was walking to my class completely lost in my own thoughts about all the stuff I had to do.
When all of a sudden someone grabs me from behind!
I start FREAKING out only to realize………………………..
That it is Verne.
I could just not get rid of this guy! Like no matter what I did he was like a bad penny coming back again. Or an evil teddy bear. (more on the teddy bear story later!)
All I could think in my head was this:
So he started talking to me again, asking me for the 3rd TIME what my name was. Seriously, how many times am I going to have to tell you?
He told me I had embarrassed him in front of all his friends, and how I totally rejected him. I was just like, get over it! There are plenty of girls on this campus; you can find another one! Ha, trying to make me feel guilty? He doesn’t know who he’s dealing with. I’ve been through ARGS before. (Elton series; part 1, 2, & 3)
So I was able to get away from him and back to my work, but unfortunately I’m still a Pinocchio. He asked me again about the “boyfriend”, and I was like
Yeah, he’s good! Everything is great with him.
Guess I better start getting ready for that nest, because at this rate my nose will be becoming a tree.

In Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy has very particular guidelines as to who the perfect woman is. The perfect (accomplished) woman is one who has
“a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing, and the modern languages, to deserve the word; and besides all this, she must possess a certain something in her air and manner of walking, the tone of her voice, her address and expressions, or the word will be but half deserved.’ Caroline Bingley…’All this she must possess,’ added Darcy, ‘and to all this she must yet add something more substantial, in the improvement of her mind by extensive reading.”
After reviewing this statement I have discovered that I am Mr. Darcy’s perfect woman.
I grew up in a musical house, although I cannot play any one instrument profusely. Here are some of my musical accomplishments.
I have sung my whole life. I absolutely love to sing along to anything playing that I know. I was in many musicals in high school; having little solos. The only bad thing is that I have an alto voice, which has never been prided on. Everyone always prefers sopranos in women. At least I have Motown to fall back on. Motown cannot be sung right by a soprano, they are just not able to belt out the tunes.
I took painting and drawing classes for two years before I switched to photography. Now I am not one of those geniuses who can draw or paint a perfect image from memory, but I do extremely well at drawing if I can see the image I am trying to sketch. Painting, I only do well at watercolors, or objects such as a room, plate, frame, etc. I also do very well in pastels and chalk. Cartooning is another thing I do well, as you don’t have to apply to realistic proportions. My main forte is in decoupage, collaging, and photography.
I am not the world’s best dancer, but my biggest strength is that I am a fast learner, and can be taught dance moves quickly. However I have been trained in certain areas.
I wish I knew more languages fluently, but alas I am only bilingual (and even that some may not count.)
Got all those covered. Everything in my manner of doing things always brings support to what I am talking about.
This is where I fit the bill most of all. I have been reading since I was a small child, and I READ ALL THE TIME. I am never without a book, and devour them extremely fast, no matter the length. In fact I meet my goal of reading 365 books this year a couple of weeks ago. And I love to read EVERYTHING! Mystery, classics, sci-fi, horror, romance, historical fiction, non-fiction, biography, westerns, plays, novels, etc. I love the library, that spend as much free time there possible. One of my favorite things is to just go through the stacks and look at all the different books, choosing which I think will be best. I have too many favorite books and authors that I just can’t pick one. I really want a library like in Beauty and the Beast or The Swan Princess. I mean if Darcy has asked me to marry him in his rude, conceited way that first time; I would have considered saying yes because I would know he would have a fantastic library.
I know that this isn’t technically something that Darcy said was attractive in a woman, but it was something that most people valued a woman knowing back then. I only know hand sewing, and that in itself is mostly subjects related to patching; but I embroider like a boss. I have been doing it ever since I was a kid, amd enjoy it immensely.
Yes, I know. Only poor women or domestic help cooked at that time, but I’m proud of the fact that I am an extremely good cook. I can make anything, as long as I have a recipe, and am not daunted at trying new things. And for all the modern men out there, I make the best sandwiches out of every person I know. My older sister and I used to kid that I would make one very lucky guy extremely happy with that talent.
Well with all these accomplishments; along with filling many others that we value today, what guy wouldn’t want me? LOL
How many of you out there also fit the bill for Darcy’s Dream Date?
