new years, (not really) missed connections, bad boyfriends and brazilian waxing...
here's hoping everyone had a very safe and wonderful new years!
just a few comments on my evening last night:
mid-30ish dude, sitting at the bar, with your friend wearing the packers shirt: okay. enough with the ogling. it was very flattering, but, there are two things that are very wrong with this picture: you didn't buy me a drink, and, *you have a girlfriend*. it's not that flattering anymore.
corey: you were cute and looked great in a suit, you are working out in california but are originally from minnesota. it's really not a good idea to start talking to women in a bar when:
a.) you're there with your ex-girlfiend.
b.) you flew out last-minute from california to chicago to spend new year's with her, even though you're broken up.
c.) tell women - who you've just met at a bar - this.
you're all sweet and nice and all, but, corey, honey, you've got to give it up. yes, five years to be together is a long time, but, she obviously doesn't want to be with you. she's selfish, and that's why she keeps you around. you're too different; you said so yourself. get over her and go and find a nice, decent woman who appreciates you.
oh, and by the way, i would've loved for you to buy me a drink and talk in the upstairs bar - but - it kinda ruins it when your ex-girlfiend comes along and squeezes in between the two of us, isn't it?
i kinda ran out of there without a goodbye - but, hey. no hard feelings, though, k?
heavy: we met on the dance floor at tequila roadhouse. actually, we didn't meet. you kinda started dancing all up on me. gross. you told me your name was 'heavy'. a bit inebriated by this point, i thought i misheard, and asked you, "javi? like javier?" and you replied, "no, heavy. like, 'heavy duty'." enough said.
i'm kinda enjoying this being single again thing, but, on the other hand, it really kinda sucks.
speaking of all this: just one more comment:
dan: we had a great 14 months together. you're too much of a spaz; i'm too much of a "distraction". yes, i know those aren't 'your words', but, you're still an asshole. *two* days before christmas? two? could you have picked a *worse* time, ever? i'm really suspecting that this all went down because you're hanging out with your friend brendan a lot now. you said it yourself, he is the biggest scumbag you know. and guess who's following in his footsteps? don't you dare compare me or our relationship to that of his and his little skank girlfriend, you selfish, selfish person.
and maybe just one more:
ray: i looked awful, i know. but it was after the gym! i haven't seen you in years; you are still very sarcastic and fun to be around. starbucks was a little strained, though... maybe it was because we were both thinking the same thing? guess we'll never find out, though...
okay. i'm done. maybe i should just transfer this post to the rants/raves section of craigslist... :)
anyways. the *real* reason i'm posting is because i'm probably on the "bad sp" list. no comment on that one. speaking of sp9, i'm crazy. i actually waited in line - at the post office, no less - last saturday for *30 minutes*, so i could mail her package. ridiculous! i had no choice, though - it's either that, or wait until wednesday to mail it out! ah well...
i've decided that my big box of rowan will be my last yarn purchase for a while. just call it a new year's resolution. now it's time to scale back the other shopping. i was *very* bad yesterday. i've had an awful past few weeks, and, i've gone a little crazy the past few days. but at least now, i've found my *absolute favorite* bikini wax place - sisters, at water tower - and, i have a new, not-given-to-me-as-a-gift-and-it-makes-me-want-to-melt-it-down-and-make-a-new-ring-out-it-it, right hand ring to boot! it's currently out, being resized, so, i will post photos of my beautiful, totally "me" ring asap!
ok. *definitely* too much bitching this time. hopefully, more interesting stuff/fp's next time! happy new year!
