Go Carmen, You’re Stylish!!



We interrupt our regularly scheduled program to bring you this special announcement!! 

 I know I’m supposed to be coming with it to finish out the Black Russian “event”, but I’m totally stoked and honored to have been presented with the Stylish Blogger Award from my girl Esme over at http://love2esme.wordpress.com .

I’ve only been blogging for 4 months but have learned so much and have come across some truly talented and amazing people.  But most importantly,  I’m making sure not to lose sigh of the original goals of me entering the blog world – getting my much needed therapuetic relief while sharing my dating shenanigans AND entertaining readers with some light-hearted stories and lessons learned. 

 So again, many thanks to Esme! 

Now about this award;  being a recipeint of the Stylish Blogger Award  is a great exercise in fun and mutual back-scratching. Of course, as with any of these blog awards, there are rules. The “rules” that come along with this award designation are (1) I must divulge seven things about myself, and then (2) pay the Stylish Blogger Award forward to about seven other blogs.

7 Random Things About Me

1.  Is an amateur handwriting analyst;  I’m pretty accurate with being able to tell someone’s sex, education and sometimes their ethnicity just be looking at their writing.  I’m able to forge mimic handwriting pretty well which came in handy for those detention notices in high school.

2.  Some of my favorite things to smell include tar, Pinesol and baby breath.  Don’t judge me!

3.  I think the greatest musical instruments ever created are the piano and guitar, and I have dreams of not only learning to play, but mastering them BOTH so I can hop on stage with Prince one day and perform duets of Purple Rain and Adore.  Hey, it could happen.

4.  I own seven wigs and they all have names AND personalities that go with each one.

5.  I am a horrible sleeper who’s all OVER the bed, tossing around trying to find that warm spot.  On top of that,  I unconsciously  flip my pillow over to the cool side several times during the night.  Maybe THIS is why I’m single??

6.  I no longer have my tonsils and still haven’t figured out if there are any special skills that come with this fact.

7.  Am planning a trip to Jamaica for the very first time later this year.

Now,  the people I am passing this onto are:




and while this seems like a girly award, stylish is stylish so I can’t forget about


Now, let’s get back to the juicy stuff!

Hangover - a let down following great excitement or excess. Wow. This one sentence describes nearly all of my dating and relationship experiences!

I'm a 30 year-old woman muddling through the Los Angeles dating scene and yes - Believe all that you've heard about the screwed up men and women in La-La Land.

This blog is of my actual experiences that will either make you chuckle, laugh out loud or maybe say "aw.....".

If your dating hangovers seem worse than the next person's, read on, post a comment and enjoy!



  1. I love these random things…and it made me realize that I haven’t done a post like that in forever. I like that you have different personalities to go along with your wigs!

    1. Ayes Charles, the personaliities and they’re all prwtty fun! I’m glad you’re back on track with your art blog but would love to hear more from Allocations in the future as well.

  2. Thanks!

    I have permanently vetoed any “7 question” type deals, but since you’re so special I’ll give you a few here:

    1. I have a tendency to reverse-order letters when writing by hand. Mild dyslexia?
    2. This week I have decided to only listen to dance-techno music (Sirius channel 38) in my car. 1 week.
    3. One time, while drinking “in public,” a police officer took a beer from my hand while I was on the phone. I looked at the officer and said “Yeah, thanks, CUZ I WASN’T DRINKING THAT.” I get ornery, what can I say?

    You’re welcome!
