Last Sunday, I spent half hours after both The Simpsons and Family Guy making out with the date in Tyson's Corner. This week, I actually had to watch the shows. Not nearly as exciting. Those shows just aren't very good. But I did grade lots of papers.
Still no call back. I sent an e-mail tonight as a last ditch effort. I'm certainly not holding my breath. It's alright. I couldn't believe how early this week I had to fill up on gas after that round trip down there last Sunday. That is just too far.
I probably should have gotten a clue since we were taking TV breaks from our activities. In her standup, Margaret Cho talks about how she sometimes would go down on dates to get rid of them. She's not a slut, she's a timesaver. While I didn't get gone down on (uh, yeah, I is an English teacher), I wonder if I got some sort of guilt-induced makeout session. I mean, I didn't even have to make the first move.
Don't worry, I'll take it, and I'm not feeling bad about it. I have other prospects right now and I'm working out more and more, so my confidence is getting where it needs to be. Needs to get a little higher and I need to get less busy, but things are okay. I might even ask someone out this week. I am trying to figure out how to work it into the conversation with her.
This is, I believe, my tenth post since Friday night. But it's been a decent weekend, though, so go figure.
I did the following:
1. Had Friday night off, pretty much. I watched Angels in America in its entirety and then got all excited about Netflix again.
2. Got a full eight hours of sleep both weekend nights.
3. Made $101 on Saturday night. Shitty money today, but I got out of there in four hours.
4. Had two great workouts.
5. Didn't spend any money, save for a $25 trip to Trader Joe's this evening for the week's groceries.
6. Cleaned my house.
7. Took the dog for a run.
8. Took out the trash.
9. Graded some papers.
10. Got to park in the restaurant's super secret lot during the Fell's Point Festival, so I didn't have to fight parking.
11. Caught up on a lot of e-mails. All except one. That's you, Mandy! You still read this thing? Great to hear from ya!
If I ignore the fact that MSU lost to Michigan and the regular baseball season is over, all is well in the world. Everything not-sports related is good.
(Truth time: I actually did not do #7, but am planning on doing it right now, and thought that putting it in there would make me do it. Nothing like going for a run at 10pm.)
