Are You Ready to Betty?

Don't tell me you haven't done it.

Placed those fingers on the computer keys, heart racing, and typed:

J...O...S...

You've googled your ex.

It even sounds salacious, doesn't it?

Read the rest here.

And then, there's the Dollar-Menu Sex dilemma:

Most of the time, my husband and I have dollar-menu sex.

It's hot, cheap, quick and easy.

Stick around, because bettyconfidential.com is looking for fresh new voices and Manic Mommy is going to help them find those voices. And that voice could be YOURS! Stay tuned for an exciting writing contest!

You never cease to amaze me and crack me up at the same time. How 'bout some examples of dollar menu sex? I would LOVE to know what those are! LOL

And ya know, I've never googled an "ex", but I have googled a guy I was totally in love with in high school who I don't think knew I even existed! LOL

Can you even believe I was #1? I should get an award for that!

Bina--Dollar Menu Sex--
I am going to email you privately on a Dollar Menu Sex tip that I almost wrote here but if some people who I know who I KNOW READ THIS FOUND OUT, I would be in BIG TROUBLE!!!

Andie said...

You crack me up...so much, that I'm giving you an award!

(you have to come by to see it, though) LOL

Hee! You are hysterical. The blogsphere is a better place with a little Manic sprinkled around :)

Yes, I've googled some ex's and one of them is now one of my Facebook "friends." He's married too and they are expecting their first baby in September. He got married 3 months after I did and is now going to be having a baby 7 months after us!

B--When I first read this I thought it meant you were HAVING ANOTHER BABY!!!!!!

This is very interesting, Manic! I can't wait to see what's next.

Oh too funny! I love the analogies. At least you're eating. That's important, as not everyone eats enough. And me, I don't just want a warm center in my molten chocolate cake. I want a warm CREAMY center. And you can imagine how easy that is with all the planning and extra work that requires!

B. said...

Nah, we're good on babies for awhile. Maybe after I figure out what to do with this first one, we'll try for another. ;)

I had a fairly good experience Googling an ex. It had been 17 years, and I found him living across country in NYC. Since I was gonna be there for the RWA conference (2003?), I contacted him ahead of time via email. In the couple exchanges prior to my visit, I fished for info but he didn't give up anything personal. Then, because of delayed flights etc. I missed our noon lunch plan and when I finally reached the hotel, he said he couldn't make it after all. Oh well, I thought. But then five minutes later, the phone rang and it was him again, saying he was able to switch stuff around. We met in the lobby bar at 7 and he didn't leave until 11. 'Course it turned out he'd gotten married just a few years before (at the age of 49) and had a toddler (y'know, like most serially single men do at that age)...and when I look back on that evening, I think I may have missed a couple signals that he would have jumped at the opportunity to cheat on his wife (euw). Although it would have been a GREAT Sex And The City interlude, I'm glad I didn't go that route. We haven't spoken or corresponded since!

My hubby ran his ex-fiancee on a new system at the police dept. The system allowed an officer to see the photo on one's license. When her info flashed on the screen a big banner flashed "deceased". Try that for an "ex" google. It made him ever hte more glad he married me instead.
