Just Say No to Dough

So it turns out I'm a sucker sometimes.  I tried to cancel that date on Wednesday night, but I somehow got talked out of it.  We ended up bumping it to later in the evening so I didn't have to rush around when I got home, and switched it from dinner to coffee so it wasn't so much of a time commitment.  I met him in Old Town on a drizzly, gray evening when I would have preferred to just go to the gym and go home. 

Sigh.  He was a nice guy.  Very innocent and polite, nearly formal.  We sat in two high backed armchairs facing one another across a low slung table, and it was awkward and difficult to hold conversation.  This guy made pale me look tan, folks.  As I sat there I kept thinking that he reminded me of uncooked dough.  :-o  Jebus, I know that sounds awful, but he was just so pale, and so bald, and so pale and so bald.  Needless to say, there was less than zero chemistry and I was so grateful to escape after about 30 minutes. 

Hun guy got told again that I don't like being called Hun, Sweetie or Babe.  He apologized, but seems to be backing off, which is welcome.  Hopefully he will just slowly go away, like clouds on a rainy day?  I don't know.  Drift away, Hun.  Drift away!

I went to see Ross Mathews last night, and OMG, he is adorable.  And hilarious.  I don't remember the last time I laughed so much, and so earnestly.  He also just has a really amazing message of self acceptance and empowerment, and I appreciated that aspect of it as well.  I met him and got my book signed and a photo with him after the show, and he was just as nice and genuine as I'd hoped.  :-)  Totally worth the wait in line!  I'm about halfway through his book and it is a great read. 

Tonight I'm going to see Bobby Lee with a group of friends, so I anticipate more laughter this evening.  This makes me happy!  Tomorrow morning I get to wake up bright and early to head into DC for the Susan G. Komen 5K, which I am participating in with a team from my firm.  They have scheduled a brunch for after the 5K, which I'm also attending.  Unfortunately they are predicting rain and storms tomorrow.  I guess we'll see!  I was also supposed to go see a baseball game, but again, that is weather dependent. 

I've got about three gentlemen that want to get together this weekend, but I don't know what will become of that.  They will all be first meetings, so who knows.  I feel like after going out tonight and being out for the morning and early afternoon tomorrow may lead me to want to stay in Saturday.  I do really want to see Gatsby, but I am not brazen enough to go see it solo on a Saturday night!  Maybe in the afternoon if the game gets rained out.  Sunday will probably be grocery store, that's my only for sure plan, aside from a session with my trainer in the morning.

Sometimes I am wistful for having a built in date to things that come up that I want to do.  Example:  Donnie Darko is the midnight movie at a theater I like this weekend, and next weekend is Back to the Future.  I would love to go to both of these, but I know just about no one who is game for an 11:45 movie, even on a weekend!  Very unfortunate!

Okay, enough rambling for this morning.  Off to do some work so I can get to 5pm all the sooner!


  1. Good luck tomorrow! I'm wishing the rain holds off long enough to get the run in. I'm doing the Color Run in Baltimore tomorrow and I know there are other 5Ks in the area tomorrow morning. If there MUST be rain, let it be when we're not trying to run. :)

  2. Good luck on the 5k!

    As far as the dough boy, I don't know how you got talked into the date, you are much nicer than myself. I would block the hun dude, stat.

    I don't mind doing things I like by myself. I would just go to the midnight movies, no one is going to make fun of you or say anything, its a movie! in the dark! Take yourself on a date with some junior mints. But sneak those things in cuz movie theaters are too expensive.
