    Yup. Conceding a match is common practice in curling. Let a team score 7 in one end and the match becomes pretty unwinnable.

    Curling is where you take turns throwing rocks down a sheet of ice and you are trying to get your rocks to be closer to the middle of the circle than the other dude's rocks. After each team has thrown 8 rocks the scoring team gets a point for every rock that's closer to the centre than any of the other team's rocks. This repeats 10 times. In this case the scoring team got 7 points in this end, which is pretty much crippling and definitely embarassing.

    I believe it was also the first time any team has scored 7 in one end in Olympic history.

    Cool. I understand curling now.

    Hum, I wonder if I could put together a Mexican curling team. I don't think we'd face much competition to classify. :twisted: :twisted:

    Well, TBH my life is goin' pretty well. I'm super lucky girl and I've got only first world problems for the moment, but here goes... I have not left any gripes here in months!!!

    PCD is a bitch. I didn't think it would be like this and I can't really put my finger on any one cause. It's literally just my own frustration and disappointment with coming back to reality after 8 days of doing precisely whatever I wanted in Miami and onbroad. It took forever for my sea legs to go away and my vestibular system refused to believe that we would ever want to come back on land again so it felt like I was still rocking for over a week. I'm feeling better now but still rather unmotivated. Forcing myself to get back into college obsession mode has been tough, but I'm managing it :|. Oh and I guess there is also my own lingering feelings for someone I met on the cruise. I tried making contact post-cruise in a casual way over fb and so far I've had no real response. Feeling kind of like I should have really grabbed the bull by the horns while I had the chance? I couldn't just bang him on the cruise cause I seriously had a back problem that I properly medicated and bandaged up in Miami. It would have physically hurt, so I dunno why I feel like its such a missed chance :boobs: . I stand by my rule of not having one night stands, but I think I'd break my rule of not doing a long distance relationship for him... it's been a while for me + dating and maybe I'm just remembering it a lot better than it happened? *sigh* I'm kinda letting it go at this point. I'd know by now if there was any interest, I believe. I don't wanna be a bother though if he was just looking for vacation sex... this is probably quite likely heheheh.

    Damn feelings getting in the way of my important shit to do... :oops:

    The logic of this is baffling.

    Lunch for Statswife and I yesterday - chose the Subway lunch deal of $5.95 for a six inch sub, drink and a cookie. I get a Ham (which they put 4 slices of ham on), and I have alllll the salads. Statswife just wants a BLT - Bacon (about half a rasher), lettuce, tomato - nothing else. At the register hers gets treated as a "vegie, plus bacon" - $1 extra surcharge for the bacon. What. The. Hell. Subway? :P $1 more than mine, about a third of the fillings, and subway bacon is basically just ham anyway :P

    I suppose it is very possible that he is oblivious to what my likes and attempts at contact over fb mean, but my better judgement is telling me that he would have seen this by now and tried to reciprocate if the feeling was mutual :oops:. He may just not be a fb person though, so that's a good point... I just don't know. I guess I'm willing to let this 'simmer this on the back burner' for a while. I want to drunk message and just spill it so that he can say A. fuck yeah, so glad you told me! or B. Sorry, not interested. We had a good experience, let's not ruin it by wanting *more*. I can handle rejection, but this is a pretty perfect match up in my humble tipsy opinion... I don't <3 people too easily.

    I don't think he's a forum member here or on fb, but if he reads this and decided to let me know what he thinks I'd be cool with that. I don't wanna be rejected any more than the next person, but its better to be rejected honestly than to get into a relationship based on lies or nothing at all. That's not even what I'm after... I would be content with the chance to get to know him better in our own country lol *hint*. Sucks getting cut off to go home when another couple days may have made all the difference. Argh.

    (My back REALLY did hurt, I would have taken you back to your cabin and went to town if it wasn't for that one stupid little thing, darnit :cry:... and my level of intoxication onbroad also played a role in my bad judgement in not making intentions known to you in a clearer way :stagger:. This is totally one of those missed opportunities that I'm kicking myself for now. *sigh* anyway, it was just nerve plus the inability to bend over... not you... :shock: :P )

    I rarely get hints etc, even stuff others say is very obvious.
    I'm sure I'm not the guy you're talking about, mainly since I'm not on FB :lol:

    Still, the few remote times I THINK I've understood what a girl is implying, turns out I've been wrong.
    So these days I tend not to get into any situations unless the girl tells me "hey dude, I like you!"
    And actually like that, not by signs or anything else I'm supposed to know.

    Not telling you what to do or that you haven't done enougn, also not saying he doesn't understand, but I sure as hell eitehr wouldn't understand or I'd think you probably didn't mean what I was reading into it.

    So to be reallysure, well the bite the bullet response usually yields an answer at least.


    Hmmm... yes, I see your point that at times dudes will wait for the greenest greenlight they can get before bothering heheheh. But yeah, if I can make this happen by just being forward about things then I guess its worth a try.

    So, what's the most non-threatening or demanding way to inquire about this? I'm thinking I should keep it simple and honest and see what happens?

    Ie. Hey, how have you been? I have not heard from you since getting off the boat but it seems like you've kept yourself busy too! Anyway, I'm not the best with these things or the hottest item in the world but I was wondering if we could keep in touch for a while and see how things go? I definitely enjoyed your company a lot and didn't really know how to express it properly at the time so I am doing so now? How about it? Rejection is cool too. I'll stay tough."

    Lol... am I really doing this....

    Don't beat yourself up over the regret, its a silly cycle you can get trapped in. Just consider it as seed planting (exactly what I tell Joey, all the time). Whether this one eventually blooms perhaps on the next cruise or at a different festival - or perhaps you might luck out with a different "flower" altogether, just roll with it and don't get stressed out about it. These things (especially when you are dealing with distance) you don't want to be too agressive with, especially right off the hop. Slow. Delicate. And slow again.

    Metal festivals are about metal and if you want action/romance paired with it: seed planting (cause that's all you'll really have time for anyways what with all the metal and all). Just be warned, shit can get scary and complicated when you plant too many seeds :? :lol:


    Also: if it comes to fruition you'll have to tell either Joey or myself. Because then we can add you to our snowflake (basically a web of 70K relationships and hook ups, we're all so fucking incestuous in our 70K familty its insaaaaannneeee).

He may just not be a fb person though, so that's a good point... I just don't know. I guess I'm willing to let this 'simmer this on the back burner' for a while. I want to drunk message and just spill it so that he can say A. fuck yeah, so glad you told me! or B. Sorry, not interested. We had a good experience, let's not ruin it by wanting *more*. I can handle rejection, but this is a pretty perfect match up in my humble tipsy opinion... I don't <3 people too easily.


    Cruise cupid works in mysterious ways Image

    Ah yes the heart-spilling drunk texts...I'm the queen of those, by the way. I've never had one go wrong. Good people appreciate honesty, and the drunk part just makes it more lighthearted ;)

    Second, I fell in love with someone on the cruise forum. We ended up going on the cruise together, moved in for a bit, did long distance for a long time. Ultimately we broke up, but I would have hated myself if I hadn't tried. He had no interest in me at first and I basically forced myself in :lol: So, I say go for it. Tell this person you think they're awesome and you'd like to keep in contact!

    I still find it interesting how this cruise has always been 70000 tons of long distance relationships. Just another reason this is no regular fest.

    It makes sense. You're in a place with other people of the relatively same socio-economic status with similar interests in the middle of paradise. The Love Boat, indeed.

    I see it more as all of us being incredibly homo for everyone else. I saw you all dancing in Boleros on the last night :gulp: :lol: .... Not to mention at the end of Living on a Prayer ring around the rosie style :ugeek: ... very metal. I had a good time drunkenly grabbing people and making them dance with me for one minute intervals.

    But yeah... I don't really plant too many romatic seeds. I've been off the dating scene for more than 2 years now, and no one night stands or fuck friends in between... maybe I'm just going a little crazy here from those few perfect moments. Ocean drive was perfect on the first night. It truly was... and I know I was pretty drunk, but I just can't think of a time I connected with someone so electrically fast before this. I try and set it aside but I can't! I really gotta work on making contact with him for peace of mind. Why does it take a person so long to rationalize that they want someone? :oops:

    Dare I say he seems like a target I should be gentle with. I don't wanna scare him off.


    EDIT: so it's killing me and I must know... I finally sent a message to him on fb (I know, I was just being a pussy about it lol) and I should have an answer soon.... I'm kinda fearful but I feel like I was nice about it and it is what it is :shock:

    Hey!

    So, you might be thinking: why the message?? Well, I’m honestly not really sure what works for you. I’m just fumbling here, kinda nervous, but can I just say I think you are really awesome and I really enjoyed chilling with you in Miami, 70K and Mexico. I’d love to see you again sometime. Even if it was short-lived, I liked you a lot and I wasn’t too sure of it while on the boat plus I had a painful back problem (Or I might have been more forward with my interest in you). Anyway, I sincerely have not forgotten about you... No pressure at all (my intent isn’t to be creepy or annoying – say you’re not interested and I’ll get it), but if you’re ever in Ottawa definitely let me know in advance. I dig you a lot, but won’t be a bother if you’re not into me .

    Hope you are doing well. Take care,

    Krystyna M.


    I'm freaking out a bit, but it's sent and I'm proud to have done something about my situation....

    Hope he doesn't say anything rude now. Any good person would see that its an honest offer and admission of feelings.

    DO YOU PEOPLE EVEN REALIZE HOW MAGICAL THIS CRUISE IS?!!?!? :shock: :lol:

    Wish me luck.... and for the luck that he doesn't read this (unless he finds the effort I'm putting into this attractive, of course).
