Looking for a good time?

An old high school classmate posted this blog on Facebook the other day. Basically, a friend is trying to set up her sister on a date.

From the blog Date My Sis:

I am the protective sister (I’ve been known to shoot a gun, but only at non-living targets {wink}).
In all honesty, I only want what is best for my sister. Read below, and if you’re cool with it all, we can arrange a fab date between you and the most adorable girl on the planet.
Whatcha got to lose?
  • Suitor MUST believe in Jesus. That is non-negotiable.
  • Suitor must live in the Greater Columbus area (Ohio). My sister works four ten-hour days a week, and she spends her off-days catching up with friends and family. It just wouldn’t make sense for her to travel an hour each way to meet up with someone during her downtime. Now, if you have a private jet and prefer that mode of transportation – that’s a different story.
  • Men only. Enough said.
  • Technically, there isn’t an age limit or range, but my sister has never dated anyone considerably older or younger. Dating someone 10 years older would be quite a stretch, and let’s be real, she isn’t looking to date anyone whose lifestyle mirrors the average frat boy. She’s been financially independent and career-driven for several years, thus she deserves someone who is equally stable (not to say she doesn’t enjoy a fun night out on the town every now and then. My sister is way more fun than I ever will be).
  • My sister has the right to say NO to anyone whom she does not deem appropriate. If she ain’t feeling it, oh well.
  • Assuming you do go out with her, you will meet up at the arranged location (no carpooling), and you will leave the arranged location separately. Face it, anytime the Internet is involved, there is a risk. My sister’s safety WILL NOT be jeopardized. I (along with my gun-happy husband and the rest of his hunting buddies) will be VERY aware of her exact location. She will have her cell phone with her at all times. Heck, I might even be waiting for her outside in the car {wink}.
  • The results of your date will be blogged about. Neither your name nor any telling information will be published, but the highs and lows of the date will be. Think about it, this is a win-win situation. If you are wondering how things went, all you have to do is check the blog. Full disclosure.
  • Most importantly, this should be fun. As long as you go into this with a hey-why-not attitude and an honest disposition, I promise you will be impressed. Only God knows what will come of this Date My Sis idea, in the meantime, have some fun!
  • So, if you’re interested or know someone who might be interested, go to Date My Sis and leave a comment. I left a suggestion, but I don’t know that they’ll jump on it. Let’s help this fine Christian honey find a man.

    I believe in Jesus, but have a few issues with that book about him. Do you think that would be a problem?

    You know Jomo to? We call him Angry Guy around here.

    It’s worth a try. I would think someone who depends on their sister to look for dates can’t be too picky.

    The Jomo I know is/was black and skateboards and ask if you stole his soul. Does that match Angry Guy’s description?

    Pretty close, except he doesn’t ask if anybody stole his soul, I think he is pretty content with it’s current state.

    Schucks, I’m disqualified on the first two. :<

    Is there a wild card slot?

    I can STILL hear you, you know.
    My soul is perfectly fine where it is…. on a piece of paper somewhere in Brookings.

    At least you were born in SD.

    #7 Angry Guy on 01.19.09 at 7:04 am

    I was born in SooFoo.
    I traded my soul sometime back in ’94 in exchange for something intangible and totally worth it. I got the better end of that deal, fo’ sho’.

    I still own the soul of one of my friends from back in middle school. All he wanted was my bread at lunch.

    #9 l3wis on 01.19.09 at 7:57 am

    Well, it’s probably pretty obvious I still have my soul, since I am talentless at most everything I do, I would assume if I would have traded it, I would have gotten something in return besides stubby legs.

    Dear Commie-prozac: My neighbor’s Jed and Ned Nugent informed me they would seriously like to be introduced to her doughnut hole. I am not sure what that means, but could you send an extra doughnut hole my way? That would be down right tasty and fun.

    Eggbert, can I suggest glazed with no sprinkles for you?
