What a great time Blogshare was, huh? As always, lots and lots of funny, moving, well-written posts. Kudos to all involved.
You should all be thanking your lucky stars that Blogshare happened when it did, otherwise yesterday you would have been reading about the very vivid dream I had, starring Neil Flynn (Janitor from "Scrubs") as a policeman who threatened to shoot me because I accidentally aimed a laser pointer at him. Yeah...I don't know, either. My dream life is weird!
How's the real life going? Well, nothing too major. I haven't heard from or contacted the Professor since last week's excruciatingly polite date. I'm hoping that means that he felt the lack of chemistry, as well, and there are no hard feelings on either side.
I'm still exploring the Hayoo! personals, and actually got brave enough to contact a few guys without waiting for them to contact me first. That hasn't worked out all that well, so far, but I do have the number of one guy who wants me to give him a call. (And he's pretty cute in his pictures, so...fingers crossed.)
I also got suckered into trying "MeMarmony" again for a bit (I never do more than a month at a time with ANY of them--no endless auto-renewals for me), and am currently in the process of "guided communication" with a couple of guys. The problem with "guided communication" is that it takes a while....back and forth, back and forth with the questions! I'm a gal who prefers instant gratification, generally. And yeah, I know the theory is that you get to know someone gradually before you plunge on in, 29 levels of compatibility, blah, blah...but sometimes a plunge turns into a good thing. And if not, well...you find out pretty quickly and move on. Or you have a several-months-long relationship and then he moves out-of-state and breaks your heart. One or the other. Heh.
Mostly I'm just trying to keep myself occupied, and my mind off things like He Who Shall Be Nameless, and $3.89/gallon gas, and soaring food costs, and the construction on my street that's driving me up the wall, and the heat, and the humidity, and well...you get it.
By the way, are we all watching "So You Think You Can Dance," as we should be? I have an enormous crush on Will. I could watch him dance for hours. Preferably shirtless. Yowza. They don't grow 'em like that on Hayoo! or MeMarmony. Heh.
