In a nutshell:
*Lots of tats. Esp. of shamrocks.
*A smattering of weird name spellings. "J?"
*Some odd jobs. Manscaper? Funeral director? Model (in Vail)?
*People can comment on the girls' photos (for the first time I can remember). Some comments are harsh, others are just plain awesome.
Let the good times roll January 3! I still predict he picks no one, although he's saying he found love. Maybe with a producer.

Now, a party's a party, and we did get to go home afterwards. Plus I of course left with the gift that keeps on giving, Diane. But still. A little sad.

Little did I know he was being followed today by a very cute resident. Who got to come in and watch the magic happen. So humiliating. Plus I paid a $35 co-pay. To pop a zit. Sigh.
I decided to keep her on my desk and blame things on her - "Oh, Diane Esparza was in charge of that." "Let me connect you to Diane Esparza." "She nodded her head yes, so she's on board." Etc.
She was such a hit at the party that we decided to call the number she listed to compliment her marketing savvy. And...she no longer works there. Perhaps business cards are a better way to go...
But thank you, Diane, wherever you are, for livening up an office holiday party. Stop nodding your head at me.

10. His cold, icy stare. (This also applies to his embrace and his feet under the covers)
9. He doesn't HAVE feet. Scratch #1. But this is still problematic.
8. That damn corncob pipe. Nasty habit.
7. Tendency to hang out in the buff. A scarf doesn't cut it, bub.
6. When I'm hungry, his carrot nose gets nibbled on. And not in a sexy way.
5. Takes a lot of work to make - er, meet - his friends.
4. No fireside chats.
3. Or s'mores.
2. Or candlelit dinners.
Because, the #1 reason dating a snowman would suck...
1. HE MELTS, people.
They performed for us at a Hockaday assembly once in high school, and let's just say 14 good-looking college dudes in a room of hundreds of girls went over VERY well. They could have just sat up on stage and done absolutely nothing, and we still probably would have given them a standing ovation. All-girls schools are tough, what can I say.
They were also on an episode of "West Wing" back in the day and sang the most amazeballs rendition of O Holy Night. Of course, every time it's a different bunch of dudes - like Menudo, if you will. But they're always super cute and uber talented.
Plus you can use it in a sentence: "Whiffenpoof THIS." (That's what she said. Whatever.)

So I downloaded some pics from the last few years onto a CD and I'm making it my mission over the holidays (aka New Years Resolution) to get these bad boys printed out and actually put up somewhere. Of course, my resolution LAST year was to learn how to cook, and that didn't go so well. But a girl can dream.

Long story short(er): without any gift boxes at home, I was forced to wrap one of the shirts in the DVD player box. Which is so mean - he will unwrap it Christmas morning and think his awesome older sister bought him a DVD player for college. Um, no. So I felt obliged to write on the box, "Sorry. This is NOT a DVD player." Talk about ruining it. Oh, well. Here's hoping the Rangers Claw and Antlers tee I actually DID buy him will make up for it...
I'll repeat: DAMN YOU, ZUCKERBERG.

Got sucked into buying a new flavor of Extra gum, Mint Chocolate Chip. The box actually says, "Have your dessert and CHEW it, too!" Oh lord. Now for the review: it's not bad. It's NOT the same as having mint chocolate chip ice cream. But it's not bad. It's weird, though. Seriously - who ARE the ad wizards who came up with this.
Plus watched "Elf" (again) on the plane ride home. Doesn't get much better than that. :)

*Note: perhaps my UNC football rug needs to go. It DOES look rather "college-y" in here...
