Mad Skillz and Long Conversations

Saturday nights are generally uneventful for me and Jeremiah.

This last Saturday was no exception until I found myself wide awake around the time I would usually be falling asleep.

I went to write some inane nonsense on twitter and saw that Aly was also awake. I enticed her to call me, and was surprised when voila!!!, a strange number was lighting up my cell phone.

"Why are you calling from an 800 number?"

Aly answers in her perfectly excellent southern accent,

"Hon, it's a 805 number, not an 800 number..."

And now I've given away her area code to anyone wanting to stalk her. Or did I?

Then came the marathon phone conversation that lasted a whole four hours, although I'm not sure how that is even possible. Our talk covered a broad range of topics but mostly hit on these points:

1) Sex.
2) Sex.
3) Jeremiah.
4) Our Kids.
5) Confessions (mostly things I said that surprised Aly, and things she told me that would rock the blogging world...but secrets can only be hinted at, right?).
6) Siblings.
7) Sex.
8) Sex.

The whole four hours mostly boiled down to the fact that Aly and I are much more alike than we previously thought. And that we both LOVE to talk. About Sex.

Yesterday I wrote about the first half of our wonderful weekend. Aside from another bike ride the rest of the weekend was generally uneventful, except for the drama that one lunch at a Japanese restaurant created...Enjoy My Masterful Slideshow Video Skills. Mad Skillz Yo.

I laughed, I cried, I paused it when you were on the screen so I could check out your 'hubba hubba'-ness.

Damn work and their no video policy. I'll have to watch it tonight after Zumba!

Hey, Erin. You left out sex. ;)

It was definitely one of the most interesting (and long winded) conversations I've ever had. It's a shame you don't share all your stories on your blog, because they're brilliant.

Cheers to having another confessional soon.

Eek, I have talked to two people on the phone who I met on the internet first (both on MySpace, hahaha). One guy was in Australia and I was too afraid we 'wouldn't be able to understand each other' to give him my number for weeks...we're still friends almost seven years later. The other guy I ended up dating for years. Good ol' internet.
My verification is 'lista' which roughly means 'she's ready' in Spanish. Is it a sign?

nova said...

p.s. HAHAHAHAHA your video is awesome.

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

I want to slow dance with somebody so badly right now.

erin said...

Doc: Are you saying I'm fat? ;)

Al-Bear: If I shared all of my brilliant stories on my blog...I wouldn't have any friends. Wait. I already don't have any friends. Food for thought. Speaking of food! I'm starving.

Missy Poo Hoo: I made a friend on some theology chat once...now he's a published author so I hates him. I'm glad you liked the video, I made it just for you...a-hem.

erin said...

Beckerino: Oh baby girl. I'll slow dance with you anytime. Just not right now. I have SO much laundry to do.

The mad woman behind the blog said...

OMG! I think I'm in love (now..there doesn't seem to be...oh, thats not how that Tiffany song goes at all. OOPS!)

Okay I'm in love. I love Aly and now I love you and your mad vid skills. That damn song is gonna be stuck in my head all day...Richard Marx, thank god, NOT Tiffany.

Petit fleur said...


And in our house, it's always my husband's fault. I make sure of it!

More videos, that was fun.

Miss Yvonne said...

Richard Marx. Nice. That was the song I first did it to. Ahhh, memories.

Amanda said...

Richard Marx! Classic! Nice touch!

Kim said...

Damn, everyone has a pretty new blog layout.

Richard Marx? Did Miss Yvonne lose it in middle school? Slut.

Ally said...

Your slide show set to that particular song was classic. Loved it!

I once had a MySpace friend from Boston (I think we met through an online Weight Watchers group). It was an insomnia Saturday and she had a few too many drinks. Swapping late night emails, I slipped her my number and she actually called! We talked until the sun came up. It was crazy. Then we never talked again, but still. It was cool. Reminded me of the 80s party lines when only one person was on the phone line.

Sadly, the blogger I'm closest with is a happily married male who thinks it would be inappropriate to chat on the phone and even though I too am a happily married blogger, I guess it would be weird.

Sam said...

Oh, I have tears in my eyes. :)

Powdered Toast Man said...

I love that song playing in the background, nice choice. yeah that coconut flavor is pretty gross.

Does the 5 second rule apply with a lollipop?

otherworldlyone said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! I finally watched this.
