This is how I started the year. No really. This was a picture taken January 1, 2006. I have no idea who the guy in the picture is but I found him on the beach in Playa Del Carmen. Before you start thinking that I'm some random slut that wanders the beach in search of men, let me clarify. I've always had this "thing" for cabana boys. I've always had this fantasy that I would have my own cabana boy to get me drinks, rub suntan lotion on me and basically cater to my beach/lounging needs. No sexual favors necessary, just cater to my needs and don't speak. (Now that I think about it, it's probably every woman's fantasy... ) So there I am, new year's day, on the beach in playa del carmen, with Tara & Mike HUNGOVER as hell and I find him; my cabana boy. I didn't ask questions. I grabbed him, passed the camera to Mike and said "this is it, this is the cabana boy". I have no idea what his name is, but in my world, he's Juan. Juan the cabana boy. All he did was get us beach chairs, not a small feat considering how packed the beach in playa del carmen is on new year's day. But in my world, he gave me a foot massage, provided margaritas and sunscreen all without saying a word.
Judging by the start of my year, I should have known it was going to be a good one. Right before Christmas, I applied to be on Manhattan Matchmaker
I had had it with my love life so when the opportunity arose, I thought; WHY not? As cheesy as it sounds, I met the man of my dreams... he has a story himself, he's "Hot Guy" from the local radio station. And now, I've been told the Vancouver Courier will be writing an article about the show and how we met. I know it's sounds like I'm an attention whore, but I'm not. I was just so fed up with the dating scene I figured I had nothing to lose...
So that's the first half of my year, I can't wait to see how the second half plays out
Oh and "hot guy" he gives a GREAT food massage (among other things... ;) )
