Aw these were cute!  I made them before work as I knew making dinner would be a scramble.  I had the ladies of the book group to dinner and it was lovely.  We drank lots of wine and talked about the book a little bit, but seemed to talk mostly about my adventures on the dating scene.  I have woken up this morning feeling as though I totally hogged the conversation.

All of the ladies are in long term marriages so haven’t been on the loose for many years and we talked a lot about how it has all changed thanks to the internet.  I think that the biggest change is that these days people seem much more up front about what they are looking for.  The site I am using at the moment – OK Cupid – has a neat way of showing how compatible you might be with someone by a vast list of answerable questions.  You can answer as many as you like and when you find someone you like the look of, you can see how they answered the same questions.

For example, “Could you date someone who was really messy?” is quite an important one for me to check – ha ha!  But you can also get a heads up about stuff that is REALLY important. There are questions that reveal how people feel about abortion, homosexuality, racism –  which actually reveal quite a lot about the type of person they are.  If you answer a lot of questions like these very differently the OK Cupid robot will inform you that “you two have issues” which is good to know so you can hit DELETE immediately.

It is very addictive when you start, and quite interesting if you are in a self reflective mood to be challenged by questions like, “How often do you keep your promises?” and “How open are you with your feelings?”  Ooh, yes, that was a good one…

So all of that to say, I am having FUN on the dating scene and being pretty selective about who I meet up with.  I wonder why it took me so long to get back out there?

I think it would be nice to have these cakes after Barbara Stanwyck’s Leg of Lamb in Wine Sauce and watch her and John Boles in Stella Dallas.  I loved that film the first time I saw it and I’m sure it is around the place somewhere on DVD.

That doesn’t look anything like Barbara!  This is more like it…

I’m loving the hairdo.  After reading Lauren’s post on Dark Victory yesterday and seeing Bette’s bob I’m seriously considering getting my hair cut to this length so I can get the heated rollers out again…

But we are forgetting about John…
