Venus Trapped in Mars

Chalupa Batman

 
When I have big events coming up, like a birthday party or a girl's weekend road trip or a vacation, I get so excited in the days leading up to that event that I feel like I may explode. Then when the actual event arrives, I find myself getting sadder and sadder for every hour that ticks off the clock. I spend the entire day/weekend/week thinking about how much time I have left with my friends, how much longer I have left at this party, how many days until I have to leave the beach or leave my family. 

And when that time comes that the event or trip is finally over, and I have to say my goodbyes, I drop into a level of sadness that can't be fixed by shopping or even pizza delivery. I desperately didn't want to go back to normal, boring mundane life. The life I had for the first several months after moving to Dallas. The life where I wake up at 6:30am, shower, go to work, sit in rush hour from 5:00pm - 5:45pm, finally get home, go to work out or watch tv, eat dinner, go to bed.... followed by weekends that didn't include any plans other than maybe the mall and dog park if I was feeling wild and crazy. 

So yeah, you know that feeling when you have so much excitement over something, and you don't ever want that excitement to end? That is exactly the way this boy makes me feel every single day. He makes me feel so absurdly excited about my life, and I just don't ever want it to end.   

Oh yeah, did I mention there is a boy in my life right now and not just heart eyed emoji vagueness?

It's weird too, because I've never felt like this before. I've never been the girl to jump around, get all giddy and talk non-stop about a boy. I've never been the girl to be so honest. I just want to tell him everything. I want him to know everything. I want him to know the stupid thought that has popped in my head. I want him to know my past. I want him to know everything about my past, the good and the bad. 

Life is beyond good right now. He should probably be the blogger because he always has the perfect sweet thing to say to just slap a goofy smile on my face. What can I even say right now other than, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have found this kid. 

I'm rambling because I didn't know how to address this post with you guys -- obviously seeing as I've been making y'all wait forever and only using heart eyed emojis! But bottom line here is that I'm one happy girl and I don't care who knows it! Hashtag boom!

Well, this aforementioned boy doesn't want his picture or name on Le Venus Trapped in Mars (yes, VTIM is of French origin, everyone knows that). I know it may be shocking to us to hear that not everyone wants to put all of the information on the internet... I mean, he doesn't even have Facebook (wtf?!). 

So no pictures, no names... what should I call this kid on the blog? Which leads us to the title of this post. If you've ever seen the show The League, also known as the greatest show on tv, also known as the show that premiers season 6 tonight at 10pm EST on FXX, then you'll know the name Chalupa Batman. 


Backstory if you want it: the main couple is having a baby. The show is all about fantasy football, and long story short, the naming rights of their baby manage to get traded for the first pick in their Fantasy Football draft. So Taco, the character who earned said naming rights, names the couple's baby Chalupa Batman. 


I have no idea why I want to call my boyfriend Chalupa Batman on this blog, but it occurred to me the other day when I was driving over to his house and I think it is hilariously funny, and 100% better than using the word boyfriend or boy or bae, or snuffleupagus every time. So, Chalupa Batman is what we're going with. Well, until I can finally get him to come around and let me post names and pictures... fingers crossed! 

So there we go, please direct all interrogation to the comment box.

  2. Chalupa Batman, certainly works better than all those mushy nicknames people use that make my eyes roll so far back into my head that I'm scared they'll get stuck.

    Happy to hear that you've found someone who makes you giddy. I've got a list as long of my arm of qualities I'm looking for in a guy, but if I'm being truly honest, I'm just looking to be giddy. If someone makes you happy, the rest of that crap doesn't really matter.

  3. This makes me HAPPPPPPY. Love the name and love how giddy you are. And totes understand his want for privacy--I'm married and Andrew still gets skiddish when I talk about him on the blog. And yes, he doesn't have a Facebook either! Those weird men.

  5. 1. I'm super happy for you - congrats! 2. I am SO excited about The League coming back on tonight. My husband and I quote it constantly, because it never stops being funny. 3. Chalupa Batman is the best name ever, and if I ever ended up popping out a kid, it would totally be on the potential name list.

  7. So happy for you!!! We LOVE The League at our house, so Chalupa Batman is the perfect name haha. Did you see they just released Season 5 onto Netflix??? I know what my weekend looks like...

  8. I have never heard of The League, but I love the name Chalupa Batman. I think it's a genius name for your guy instead of weird variations of boyfriend/husband. Or being lame with what I did for the longest time and just shorten his name to the first letter.

  9. First let me just say how happy I am for you!!! Second, with a nickname like that, who needs to hear the real thing! Awesome! But for real, tell him he needs to at least give us a picture eventually! Just one!

    ReplyDelete
  10. You probably shouldn't have given him such an awesome nickname! If you had gone with something mushy and gooey and girly, he probably would've caved but I think chalupa batman is pretty awesome! He needs to give us a picture though! Maybe start with a side-profile and see how it goes? Glad you are happy girl! xoxo

  25. Blogging with a new boo can be so weird. I'm in the boat and just opped to not include him at all. I mentioned that we went on a date and that was about it!

  27. Love. And love that you are hear eyed emoji over this one. My bf has not facebook, instagram or anything as well, so I get ya. He is in the occasional photo, but you can make it work. Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!

    I'm so happy for you, Sarah! Congratulations on your Chalupa Batman. I hope he's worthy of you!

  29. First, I'm super happy for you! I love how you described this, and wanting him to know everything about you. That's how the best relationships start. So congrats to you and Chalupa Batman -- although, can we also call him CB? As in, Chuck Bass? Just kidding. At least your boyfriend is real.

    I used to be really transparent about my relationships on my blog, and it got me into SO much trouble. I had to create aliases, but it's not hard to figure out who the people are if you know me, and there are parts of that I regret because they never asked for it. I try to be more careful with protecting privacy, but I can understand someone's concerns.

    I've kinda been dating someone since January but I haven't really talked about him at all, even though I'm insanely crazy about him. But for now, it's kind of cool that we're the only ones who really know about it. Given that I'm so open about my life, and really intimate parts of it, it feels more special.

    But it's hard for the guys. It must be weird to be dating slash married to a blogger.

  30. ahhhahahah must be a hunk with that awesome name! :)

  31. Congratulations to you and Chalupa Batman. Does he read the blog??

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yay I am so happy for you! What a rad nickname you've given your boy. Also, any tips for us still-single ladies? lmao

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yay!!! So, if he's not into social media, etc. how does he feel about your blog? How did you meet? TELL ME EVERYTHING!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This post gives me heart eyes. You are so deserving of a good man who takes care of you and makes you smile those big goofy smiles.

    Having found someone like that myself I know exactly how you feel and it's the best.

    I am so, so happy for you.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Congratulations! I'm glad you're happy. Also, I'm so glad I went back and got caught up on a few blog posts from my vacation, otherwise I'd come back and be all, "Who the heck is 'Chalupa Batman'?!"

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congrats! I think you should call him snuffleupagus though.. it has a nice ring to it. My snuffleupagus doesn't have a Facebook either.. I thought he was an alien until now.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Awww I love this! Yay for the butterflies and mushy gushy feelings.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The League is amazing! I recorded last nights episode, about to watch it now.. I'm so excited!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm so happy that you're happy! Also, currently recruiting people to do a prayer circle to pray that he agrees to let you blog his name and picture because, hi, I'm a stalker and NEED TO KNOW.

    But honestly, so happy for you - you deserve it.

  42. OMG my job is so annoying for making me busy and missing this. So glad the cat is out of the bag and its so funny to me how much we have in common. I am the same heart eyed emojied happy as you are and most days I still dont believe it gets to be my life as of late. Could not be happier for you! Also I need more details about when, where, why, how because I am eternally nosey. Okay bye.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hahaha I love that you chose Chalupa Batman. Is he funny and nice and does he like breakfast foods? These are clearly the questions that are most important to answer.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Makes me happy to hear you're so happy! :)

  45. Chalupa Batman is a beautiful name. I love reading that a bunch of my single bloggers are finding men. (Not that we NEED them.. but they do make the world a touch more interesting AND make us pretty happy.. mooooost of the time.)
    Taco- is John Lajoie who is a Canadian comedian. Not sure if you have seen his online music videos but some of them are pretty funny. "Sunday Afternoon" is one of my favs.
