We had joy we had fun, we had seasons in the sun

On Friday, I left work early and headed down to stay in a houseboat on the lake. I traveled with Robin, BeefCake and MrsBeefCake. Although they aren't married yet, BeefCake and MrsBeefCake are practically married and it just makes things easier. We met Sugarloaf there with Barrel and a bunch of girls. SpicyTuna was there. I haven't talked about SpicyTuna before. I have met her many times and have always perceived her as a snob. It's cause she is always hanging around tools and snobby girls. I wonder if she even realizes that she is such a tool magnet.

Being out on the lake was mostly great. Exhausting. By the last day, I was so ready to get out of there. Can I just say that I really like BeefCake but MrsBeefCake drives me crazy. She is bratty and self-righteous and snotty. I couldn't have been more annoyed with her on the trip and the drive home was no exception.

So I got a chance to have a couple of deep conversations with SpicyTuna. She is actually really cool. Super athletic and spunky, she is the type of girl that everyone knows. I am sure many of the tools pursue her too. Thing is, she doesn't strike me as the type that would want a tool for a husband. She wants to get married and have kids. She wants to fall in love. I really enjoyed my conversations with SpicyTuna. I even kinda would like to take her on a date. It's hard cause SpicyTuna has been out with Cowboy a number of times and she dated Barrel for awhile.

On Sunday, after I got home, Gamer came over. I had fun hanging out with her. I think I am going to keep hanging out with her. I made plans to go out with Simpson this Thursday.


  1. man! you date A LOT! :) this new one sounds nice and somewhat different from all the other girls. maybe she doesnt wear lip gloss and you can happily spend the eternities together. :P

  2. Dear singlemormonchick:

    I really don't think I date that much. I mean, there have been weeks where I had 5 dates so this 2 dates per week business kinda feels like a slow time. I think I could handle a girl that minimally wore lip gloss. These girls that need a knife (picture a girl reaching into a mayonaise jar with a butter knife) to apply the stuff have gotta calm down. But a tiny bit when dressing up for a date, not a big deal. Just don't reapply on the date while I am eating. And don't expect me to kiss if you have applied within the previous 2 hours. Ha ha, you are probably right. I am probably destined to spend the eternities roaming solo.

    Love Tripp

  3. lol. you are not destined to roam solo. i tease you, but there are plenty of women who dont like make up. lip gloss can be particularly annoying. it doesnt last, so thats why women are always reapplying. maybe the matte look will come back soon.
    i have been on hiatus for 6 months,so 2 dates a week seems like a lot to me.
    i also meant to comment previously on the song you referenced. i loved that song when i was a kid-surprised you even know it. :)

  4. I am just wondering what a tool is... Please translate. I must be from another generation : )

  5. Dear Kelly:

    I found this definition on urbandictionary.com. Apparently some people use the word 'tool' differently than I do. But this is the definition that most closely fits my use of the word.

    1.) A guy with a hugely over-inflated ego, who in an attempt to get un-due attention for himself, will act like a jackass, because, in his deluded state, he will think it's going to make him look cool, or make others want to be like him. The person may even insincerely apologize later on, but only in an attempt to get more attention, or to excuse his blatantly intentional, and unrepentantly tool-ish behavior.

    2.) Someone whose ego FAR exceeds his talent, intelligence, and likeability. But, of course, he is clueless regarding that fact. He erroneously thinks he is THE MAN!

    3.) Someone who others normally refer to as a prick, dick, or schmuck.

    4.) Someone who acts like a dick, because...well...he's compensating.

    5.) Kanye West

    Hope this helps.

    Love Tripp

  6. i love that you added kanye west-he is the epitome of a "tool".

  7. oh yeah- i looked up "tool" in the urban dictionary and got something totally different. i thought i had it wrong. maybe i have suddenly become deficient in looking up definitions. another quirk. sigh
