Finally, thanks to the push of a few computer buttons, I too can fill the blogosphere of the interwebs with all the thoughts that fill my brain.
So what is this blog all about?
Well, at its core, it’s meant to entertain. Hopefully even elicit a small smile, maybe even a little chuckle here and there. How, you ask? For the past year and a half I have been doing what millions of people have been doing: Internet dating. What makes my story any different from someone else’s? I’m not one of those people who snags an internet date three times a week. Nope. I’m a completely average internet dater, and by that I mean my pickings are usually slim. Most of the time I feel like this:
I wish I’d painted that.
But for whatever reason my completely average online profile draws the attention of some seriously odd ducks. Over the course of my internet “dating” (really, more like browsing), I have received numerous messages that I’ve kept documented in a list. The list has gotten very long, very long indeed.
Which leads me to the title of this blog.
One spring day I logged into my account and saw a new email from someone I hadn’t heard from before. There was no subject line. The body of the message read simply:
“Oh my goodness. What’s up fancy face?”
That was it. That was someone’s idea of an ice breaker. I knew I’d make the phrase the title for something. But since I haven’t generated quite enough stories for a full book yet, a blog seemed the next best choice.
So, settle in. I’ll share the ridiculously hilarious messages I’ve received, and other anecdotes from life as a young, single professional gal rockin’ the suburbs*. It’s a work in progress, so let’s see where things end up.
Welcome to whatsupfancyface.com.
(* “rockin the suburbs” may actually mean doing things like laundry on a Thursday night or completing an online defensive driving course.)
