Isn't this my luck?

The weekend is nigh!  I'm happy about it because holidays always throw me off my game schedule-wise.  Last night I went to B&N post-trainer and picked up "Will Grayson, Will Grayson" and "The Fault in Our Stars", which is another John Green book that has gotten stellar reviews.  It is apparently an ugly cry book, but I've heard enough good things about it that I will risk it.

I have "Will Grayson, Will Grayson" in my bag to start today hopefully, and I found the other book I mentioned, "Why We Broke Up", in my nightstand.  I should be good on reading material for a bit!

I started talking to a new guy yesterday via PoF.  I'm talking to several people, but so far he's the only one worth mentioning.  :-)  We exchanged several messages last evening before my busy night set in, and then a couple after I got home.  We then ended up talking on the phone, with me telling him I could talk for just a few.  Yeah....we ended up on the phone for almost 3.5 hours.  :-o  We just talked and talked and talked, and he was funny and charming and flirty and adorable.

The kicker?  He doesn't live here just yet.  Ha! He's moving here for a job (he's in the Air Force) in April, and is currently in Georgia.  GO FIGURE.  I think I've expressed before my general desire to be able to meet people fairly quickly after we start exchanging messages, at least if I think I may like them.  I don't want to get all invested by exchanging a ton of messages or talking on the phone and then meeting in person and having it go flat.  However, it appears that in this situation I don't have much choice!

I guess we'll see if we even keep talking.  It's insanely early on, but I really do like his personality, his pictures are adorable, he has bright blue eyes, is 5'10", well-spoken.  It will be interesting to see how exactly this unfolds, and if interest remains on both sides.  In the meantime, I will keep checking my messages on PoF and conversing with anyone who strikes my fancy.

I am so looking forward to watching lots of football this weekend: Cotton Bowl tonight, playoffs tomorrow and Sunday and then the BCS National Championship monday night. That lineup makes me a happy Bluemoon! 

Happy Friday!

  2. PoF? Old school, I love it. And it's great you chatted on the phone, I need to re-introduce that step! Keep us posted on Mr. Air Force.

    Fault in Our Stars is beautiful... definitely need some tissues :)

    1. Yes, I've weirdly found PoF to be my favorite site. It's free, it's old school, it's easy. And yeah, the phone call was nice and our conversation went very well. :)

      I started Will Grayson, Will Grayson today over lunch. Good so far!

    1. Does he count as a Georgia boy if he's only been there for 3 years for military purposes? ;) He's cute, though, that's for sure!

  4. As soon as I finish The Bell Jar, I'm starting on The Fault in Our Stars. Hopefully we'll be around the same time when reading it. We can distance ugly cry together! hahhaha

    I like the sound of this Georgia boy, however, I'm with you, I dislike talking to guys for too long before meeting them. I think it puts too much pressure on the whole thing. Oh well, it can be nice to have someone to chat with!

    1. That would be cool if we could time it out right!

      RE: GA Boy, if you read my update, my chances have at least increased a little schedule wise. :)
