What Nationality Are You?

I'm back from the beach.  It was lovely.  Absolutely lovely.  So much fun.  So many crazy tales to share.  What is it they say?  Bad decisions make great stories :) 

I met a guy.  He was nice.  And cute.  And successful.  And lives in Phoenix.  Oh well.

I ran into TWENTY again.  We are now friends on Facebook.  This is hysterical to me for some reason. 

A guy asked me what nationality I was.  I was a bit taken aback because I don't look especially ethnic.  I don't have big, dark doe eyes.  Or great olive skin.  I wish I could have seen the look on my face during this conversation:

Guy: So, what nationality are you?
T:  What?
Guy: What nationality are you?  If you don't mind my asking.
T:  Me?  (looking around)
Guy: Yea.  See, I'm from up NORTH and it's a common question.  You ask people what nationality they are.  And like if you're Italian...and I'm Italian...then it's like an instant connection.
T:  Oh.  Well, we don't really do that in THE SOUTH.  And I'm not Italian.
Guy: So....what nationality ARE you?
T:  Is WASP a nationality?
Guy:  Huh?
T:  It was nice to meet you, I've got to use the restroom now.  Bye.

I'm uber tan.  Probably too tan for my own good.  But I wore SPF constantly!  SPF 30 mostly, and some SPF 15.  I'm not sure exactly what happened?  And my hair got really light.  I'm not sure how I feel about that.  I look a little something like this:

....but not really.  The awesome thing is that I haven't put a stitch of make-up on since I got back :)  I love having a tan.  Just some mascara and I'm ready to roll!

Daisy's car was towed.  We ended up at the city impound lot at 1:30am.  I have never laughed so hard.  I'm not sure why though, because technically it really wasn't funny.  But we were all laughing.  And taking pictures.  And the woman was trying to be serious, but we were having NONE OF THAT.

I had my first warm Krispy Kreme donut.  Right out of the oven.  And it was delish! 

I have never experienced anything like it.  And guy that I met gave it to me.  And I had icing all over my face and in my lap and I was as happy as a clam.  And then he called me Tubby and I pouted.  But he winked at me, and was kidding.  Because I'm so NOT tubby at the moment.  And I know that :) 

And now I'm exhausted.  I went out last night to kick off my birthday week.  And late last night I caught up with an old friend.  And I haven't had nearly enough Louis snuggle time, but that will change tonight :)  All in all this birthday is starting to look up...and there is, after all, the celebration this weekend to look forward to!

Why did you post a pic of that KK doughnut? I now need one right now! :) I could seriously eat a whole box right out of the oven. They're even still good if you bring them home, and still heat them up in the microwave. Gosh I haven't had one in ages.

Glad you had a great trip. I had no idea people in the north as people that kind of question. So funny!

So much fun! Yes, people up here are obsessed with being Italian, Irish or's a littler weird.
That donut is heaven!

What a funny question! Who knew northerners ask other people about that! LOVE your answer to his question!

I've been asked that question a few times and for a while I thought it was a Manhattan thing. Unfortunately I think it is a Northern one...I love your answer! It sounds like you had a fantastic weekend!
