Guest Blog – A day in the life

20 Feb

by: His brother and His brother’s girlfriend

Salutations and a good day to you, readers of His, Hers, and Theirs. Seeing as Him and Her are on vacation this week you are momentarily stuck with His Bro and his GF as your posters. This is unfortunate as the GF and I are not exactly what you would call “yuppies.” This is mainly due to our unfortunate choices in degree programs (stay away from a BA, seriously) and to our apartment building recently becoming uninhabitable.

Nothing says “underachiever” quite like moving back in with your parents.

But enough background; what you want is THE HAPS (as all you hip and urbane youth call it). So, without further ado, here is a rundown of our day:

We ate breakfast prepared and served by the GF’s mom. Apparently there is an upside to moving in with you mother-in-sin. (Since she is not technically my mother-in-law, “mother-in-sin” is the only logical nomenclature. Though it does sound suspiciously like a porn title…)

We played board games with the GF’s parents. Ironically, we played The Yuppie Game. It’s just like Monopoly, except instead of money, you are pursuing—well, also money, but ALSO just the right possessions and lifestyle to qualify you as truly worthy of the Yuppie title. Even more ironically, we quit the Yuppie Game before anyone won. Yes, we gave up on yuppiedom even outside of real life.

We then ate dinner prepared and served by the GF’s mom. It was at this point that the GF and I remembered that we had promised to do a guest blog post for Him and Her. After some minor quibbling over the topic, we quickly realized that we needed to do something exciting to cap the day off, something that would provide us with the fascinating material with which to dazzle and entertain the readers of His, Hers, and Theirs.

We did laundry.

I’m sorry, dear readers, truly I am. Perhaps in the distant future we will do something of interest. Until that time, keep hoping Him and Her arrive back safe, sound, and fast. For your sakes, hope it’s fast.

Guest Blog: Long Distance – Worth It?

18 Feb

Another fine, fine guest blogger post from none other than the BFF herself! You’ll find her featured in such posts as this one and this one.

My boyfriend and I live in different cities and have never lived closer than 2 hours away. When we first started seeing each other I wasn’t sure how we would end up… I tried long distance before and hated it! We have learned to make it work as we have now been together for almost a year!

And an awesome year it has been! There are ways to enjoy and take advantage of the time you are apart until you are ready to move on in together.

Let’s throw some positive spins on what can be construed as a shitty situation.
1. You can be the girl with the new boyfriend without being MIA from all your girlfriends! Your girlfriends won’t hate the dude for taking up all your time and will love him before they meet him because of all your fabulous stories about him.
2. You get a mini vacation every time you go to see him. escape your annoying roommates, check out the nightlife in a new town, and get treated like a princess for the weekend (if you picked the right guy).
3. You can meet halfway for dinner midweek… let me tell you, when you know your time is limited you make the most of it and can’t help feeling that giddy feeling you get after a great first date. Find a private spot to park and you will be smiling all the way home…

So you can see that there are perks to that nasty long distance relationship we have little faith in. Focus on these perks and your long distance relationship will become a long lasting one.

Guest Blog: A Single’s Insights Into Him and Her and Being Single

15 Feb

I know Her because I work with Her. I know Him because of Her. I know after having drinks with them last night that they are perfect for one another.

It’s those small nauseating feelings one can get when sitting at a table with a long-time couple as they reminisce about someone’s certain hand flaying rat dances which the other finds so endearing.   *sigh It must be a rat dance only a mother could love only your partner could love.

As the dawn of Valentine’s Day soon approaches, and as I a single friend of Her, I wonder cynically, is everyone in a relationship?!

If all your friends are in a relationship, which is the case with all the coworkers in my team, then are you an outcast? The answer is no. Despite all of your coworkers receiving flowers to their desks and planning elaborate Valentine weekends away on top of snow peaks. This is what you still have. Yes, you the single person.

  • The ability to admire your friend’s relationships. Such is the case with Him and Her. She indulgences me with the sweet details of their courtship, conflicts and triumphs. (Not in an annoying T.M.I way)
  • The ability to share raunchy single stories with your couple friends. Maybe make them a bit jealous. [Sidenote from Her: She is definitely jealous]
  • No strings attached carefree demeanor. (Not to be confused with the latest Ashton Kutcher movie)
  • The hope of meeting Mr. or Miss. Right.

With this I say Happy Valentine’s Day to all the Singles out there. Especially singles with a lot of couple friends. And remember that Sunday, February 13th is Singles Appreciation Day. (S.A.D)
