As I side-swept the first 2 and was just about to SideLINE the 3rd, the faux Brad Pitt yelled out to me -
So oddly enough, when I finally got back to my apt later that eve, I turned on the telly and there was…Wanda Sykes!
I’m not too familiar with her performances, but I have caught a few of them and I have to say her comedic timing is def on point!
Her HBO special “Ima Be Me” was on and there were some parts that were effing HIGHlarious. Especially when she goes into deets about Jamie Lee Curtis & her new “Activia” gig – I was dying!
I tried to find that clip but I couldn’t – sawwwy! But I did find a clip of her describing her 1st bikini wax (both front & back) yikes & LOL:
Cause ya know – you guys look like you could use a laugh
I vowed to keep my eyes peeled for my one and only perfect, dream lover — the man who would sweep me off my feet and love me as no one else ever had, my soul mate.”
Miranda asks Char, “Has he even proposed to you yet?”. Char responds, “No, but it’s beschert!”
According to Wikipedia, Beshert is “a Yiddish word that means “destiny”. It is often used in the context of one’s divinely foreordained spouse or soul mate, and thus has romantic overtones.”
Once, when I had been dating a Jewish guy, this exact SATC episode happened to be on TBS while him & I were in the midst of a heated text-fight. In an effort to put a fizzle to the abbreviated curses & punctuated faces, I texted:
Of course I had googled for the definition before texting it. I was hoping the Jewish guy would be uber-impressed with my Judaic linguistic skill-set.
HE: ‘Not today. And stop watching Sex & the City.’
Damn those TBS SATC reruns that everyone & their mother has seen already at least 3x!
Know what I mean? Or am I crazy?
“Beshert,” I said confidently. Two weeks later, he dumped me. OK … screw beshert.
It was around this time that I started to get a hunch that this whole “soul mate” thing may be a bunch of bull. Maybe all that I was “meant to be” was “alone forever.” The thought terrified me, but even with my doubts, I chose to keep the faith that “the one” was coming.”
I truly believe that connecting with someone should be -in some way- on all levels: emotional, mental & physical and maybe even spiritual. And I do believe that when you connect with someone who is special (whatever your definition of that is), it can feel as though you have met your ‘soul mate’.
But what happens when you’re with someone, you think this person is your soul mate, then the relationship ends and you’re left wondering…
Is there really such a thing as a soul mate – or in this case, ‘beshert‘?
p.s.s. – I’ll be posting my 1st giveaway next week!! Make sure to enter, lovelies – XOXO!
And what’s so interesting about the article is that she points out how, even when a guy seems great on paper, it doesn’t mean he’s the one. Seems OBVIOUS right? Not really.
Why? Because it’s not uncommon to date our same ‘type’ over & over again. I know I sure have in the past. Sometimes it’s just time to edit what we think our type should be…
So, at this point, she feels okay with herself as a single chick and doesn’t need someone else to ‘complete’ her…when -
“Of course then six months later I screwed it all up by meeting a great guy who I love to pieces.”
I hope. LOL!
I turn back and see that the Tyra Banks Show has on author Andrew Trees, promoting his book “Decoding Love: Why it takes 12 Frogs to Find a Prince and Other Revelations from the Science of Attraction.“
Huh! Why 12 Drew?
Seeing as I didn’t feel like dishing out more funds for dating blah-blah books (I already got that e-book about “Thinking Like a Guy”, remember?), I searched for some info online regarding this latest guide on the ‘scientific’ search for love, whatevz -
From an interview w. the Author from sundancechannel.com…I know – Sundance, wtf?:
“Seeing as it’s in the title of your book, can you explain the mathematical theory that you’ve got to date 12 people before you find Mr/Ms Right?
It comes from game theory, specifically something called the Dowry Game. Basically, the idea is that you date twelve people and then choose the next person who is better than those first twelve. Statistically, this gives you roughly a 97% chance of ending up with someone in the top 10% of the dating pool. I think this is a liberating finding because it means that you don’t have to date hundreds of people in an endless search for Mr. or Mrs. Right.“
Ah, yea…fascinating stats Drew, but how can you figure that the guys after the 12th will workout until you date them, since you really don’t know what they are like personality/character-wise? Sure, we know what we want on paper…but in real life it’s a little more complicated because the characteristics that usually determine what works and what doesn’t isn’t really statistical…its based on compatibility. Maybe compatibility can be mathematically determined?? Math is soo romantic btw…
Anywho, I still thought, hey maybe this is could be good read. At least for entertainment purposes, right? Wrong.
I found another article from nytimes.com interviewing Drew-boy…
“Mr. Trees (author) extended his sympathy. “New York City women have it the hardest,” he said. “The decks are stacked against them. The demographics are bad, and men don’t want to be with women who are more ambitious than they are.”
You suck Drew. Big-time!
No $$ from me, Mr. Trees!! LOL ;->
Obviously, these are for entertainment purposes only – but fun to find out what your Birth Card says about you. Some of the Birth Cards can mention your possible ‘Karma Cards‘. Karma Cards mean that these individuals have a strong connection with or strong attraction, to you.
To find your Birth Card click here. Scroll to the bottom of the page and then click on your birth date!
Does your Card describe you? Share please!
p.s. – so I texted DB later this eve and…no response – LOL! oh, and apparently under my birth card – he holds one of my ‘Karma Cards’ based on his birth date…freaky again - Whatevz!
