shut it down. deal breaker.

Since I know you are all wondering, the concert last night was everything my little emo heart hoped for and dreamed of. The Postal Service has always been on my must see concert list, but was hard to cross off when the band hadn't been putting new music out or traveling in years.  PLUS! I didn't even snooze my alarm this morning...That might of also had to do with the fact that Brad called me out on snoozing my alarm and said I wouldn't be able to not snooze but..... TAKE THAT, BRAD. I WON!!!!!

Anyway, The highlight of the show though, may have been his opening act Big Freedia.  Wow, that was an experience the white people of Portland might not have been ready for. TWERK, TWERK city. She he had 3 stage dancers with her and they got their twerk on. Not even sure we saw their faces once, just their backsides twerking. Twerking on the floor, twerking on the drum set, twerking on each other.... Miley would have been proud. It was awesome and weird all at the same time.

The experience got me to thinking, thank the lawd that this is not a first date for me and Brad. Could have been real awkward. And while I have my dating history, I don't really have anything good for a blog post to link up with Erin and MacKensie for when it comes to Dating Disasters....but it did make me think about how I appreciate Brad for not having crappy taste in music....That would totally be a deal breaker... This then lead me down the path of other deal breakers I have on my list.



1) He can't make a decision.
Everyone knows I am the most indecisive person ever. If you can't take the reins and make a decision for me once in a while, like where to eat or what we want to do for evening... Deal Breaker.

2) He can't handle my sarcasm and passive aggressive comments.
I am the QUEEN of passive aggressive comments with a hint of sarcasm sprinkled in. If you get offended that's a deal breaker. Also, if I use the term honey with you, it's probably because I am actually talking down to you.

3) He can't quote the following shows or relate them back to real life at a moment's notice.
Friends, The League, The Office. I am still working on Friends with Brad, may be a deal breaker in the making.

4) He has weird feet. 
Just.Eww.

5) He tells me cilantro doesn't even a have a taste.
Are You Kidding Me?! It tastes like the devil's sweat.

6.) He doesn't know how to cook. 
I can cook a delicious feast if I want to,  but sometimes I am tired and lazy and I want you to do it and it better not be mac n' cheese, unless it's the shapes kind.

7. He wears toe shoes. 



8) He makes fun of my blog. 
You make fun of my blog, I make fun of you on it.

9.) He is a bad tipper.
Come on bro, I worked in the restaurant industry. Do better than 13%.

10.) He is obessed with Twitter.
Oh wait, Brad is.... UGH.

Luckily Brad has a lot of other good qualities besides the whole can't reference Friends and is on the twitter twatter too much. I guess I'll keep him around for a little longer.


What are some of your deal breakers that would lead to disaster?!


Cheers to dating!

Helene in Between said...

i want to go to a concert with you. it's been decided. and what are toe shoes- does this mean i'm a deal breaker for you?

If the guy smacks. SO annoying!

Heather Marie said...

love your deal breakers! chad DOES not cook. unless it is frozen pizza... maybe i should teach him! hah!

Lauren said...

Not a fan of guys using guy nicknames used regularly like "bro" or "dude" or "bud." An occasional "man" is okay though.

I googled Freedia. This is what showed up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-cT6SwFIHA

Straight up amazing. Deal breaker (way before there is ever a deal on the table): chicks that dye their hair blond, with black underneath it. Or really any combination of that. I do appreciate that they wear a flag that says "steer clear, I am batshit crazy" though...

Tami said...

Deal breakers, hmm... He loves to golf. Never dated a guy who golfs, and when I have guy friends who just cream over their early tee time it drives me insane.

Laura Ann said...

Eww toe shoes ugh! Haha!

Deal breaker, doesn't drink. That is pretty much my only one... what does that say about me!?

Alyssa said...

yeah i'm still working on The Office with Garrett, too. He likes it, and has seen some of the episodes, but not every single one a million times like me.

Also HELLLLLS YES on the indecisive thing. I don't need some pushover bro. No thanks.

Sara said...

Omg I love THIS. We have many similar deal breakers, most notably an inability to quote The League. We were at the grocery store last week and Bryan asked where the yobogoya was. *swoon*

Kalyn V said...

Your deal breakers and mine are the exact same. The other day I was eatin mexican with some friends and one girl asked "What does cilantro even taste like?" and my response, witout a second thouht was "SHIT. Pure shit."

And I definitely agree about being able to cook. Derek is a grill expert but put him in front of a stove an he's pretty much lost past the point of boiling water.

Feet... yeah I don't even want to go there. Ew.

Kalyn V said...

I also just realized a had a shit ton of typos in my comment. Whoops.

MacKensie said...

hahaha I so want to do a post like this in the near future. Would you mind? Although a lot of these would be on mine as well.. Friends, duh. Music, duh. Blog, duh. And why are decisions so hard!??!

Chandler W. said...

I have two silly deal breakers, but don't get me wrong there are plenty of things that would do a guy in too.
(1) No sense of humor—yea see ya later buddy.
(2) Won't watch reruns of my tv shows with me (or has never seen a rocky movie)

JumpingJE said...

Deal breaker I thought there would be between Dan and I was that he doesn't enjoy reading. "I've already graduated from College" he says. I still love him anyway.

1. Bad Driver - if I'm stressed out the entire time he's driving, I'd have to pull a "It's not you... it's your driving."

2. Bad Finances - not in the sense that I want to date a millionaire (actually... that'd be nice), I just don't want to date someone who can't save and lives off credit cards. Boom.

Ashley said...

Hahaha, I love this list! So many of these are on my list, too. The line-quoter? Definitely. The bad feet? Ew. The decision-maker? YES. Because I cannot make them.

Ps. Years ago, in a very low-point in my life when I was trying to make extra money... I worked at Chipotle. Pretty sure I smelled like cilantro for an entire summer. So gross. I laughed so hard at the "devil's sweat" part because it is ON POINT. :)

Kasey Lynne said...

Soooo, I gather that you aren't a big fan of cilantro?? ;) The devil's sweat hahaha

Okay..about #3, I've watched 2 out of 3 of those shows, but I'm not good about remembering lines if it's been awhile. Please don't hate me!! hahaha

p.s. pretty much obsessed with the tina fey gif's.

Bobby is addicted to twitter too, what's with that? maybe Brad and Bobby should follow each other.
