Yeah, so the title of this one sort of says it all – I’m tired and sickly today, so we’re keeping this one relatively short and unoriginal. Starting…now:
-Wait, does this make me more or less shallow?: So I’ve decided that I just can’t date the guy that my friend set me up with. Yes, he’s cute. Yes, he’s rich. Yes, he’s nice. In those ways, he’s the perfect sugar daddy for me. But he’s also a tool – I’ve decided that I just can’t overlook that. I mean, he actually belongs to one of those groups that gets together to play role-playing games. This is NOT someone that I could ever allow to bring me to orgasm. It’s a shame really – what a waste.
-And the hits just keep on coming: Christine was on her way to the airport on Saturday to go visit her parents (so they could actually see her and determine if she was okay after The Firing), and her purse was stolen on the train! She lost: All her credit cards, a good amount of cash, her license, her passport, and all the assorted goodies that she carries around with her. Since I was out of town for another Jewish holiday, and she couldn’t reach anyone else on the phone, she was literally stuck out by the airport for hours until she could get in touch with someone who would come get her (since they wouldn’t let her on the plane without ID) – she didn’t even have 2 bucks to take the train back to her apartment. I have now decided that she’s a walking disaster area and am keeping my distance until strike 3 hits (am I a good friend or what?).
-Look Ma, it’s a cake baby!: I literally ate so much food while at my parents house over the weekend (like we’re talking my body weight in food – it was an impressive show I put on), that I was sporting this bump that looked like the beginnings of a pregnant belly by the time dessert was over on Saturday night. I nicknamed it my cake baby, since it was primarily thanks to all the baked goods I’d inhaled. Just thought I’d share.
-Careful – Contagious: Despite knowing that both my nephews had colds, I still smothered them with hugs and kisses when I saw them on Saturday. I am now about 90% mucus. But you know what? I’d do it all again EXACTLY the same way – I have the cutest nephews.
-I am such a girl: So I watched the first episode of that new show Gossip Girl on Sunday. I don’t know what it is about me, but I love those soap opera-y shows that take place in high school; I’m actually more than a little worried that I’m now going to be a regular viewer. But shhh, don’t tell anyone.
-Whoopsie: So I’m having a conversation with this friend of a friend who (very nicely) offered to forward my resume along to a few people, and SOMEHOW we get on the topic of older men dating younger women. Anyway long story short, I said something along the lines of, “I don’t know why a 25 year old woman would date a 45 year old man.” “What about why he would date her?” he replied. “Well that’s pretty obvious,” I answered. “It’s because he can…and obviously because he’s insecure.” Cue awkward silence. Turns out this dude is almost 50 (he’s the friend of an older ex-coworker), and he just got out of a relationship with a 23 YEAR OLD. I…don’t think he’s going to continue helping me now. (P.S. Can anyone say ‘midlife crisis’?)
Cool. Talk to ya’ll again in a day or two.
