I have grand plans to find a cute study buddy and then seduce him. Also, I fear that my self-deprecating humor gets old. He’s been on vacation in Florida and we’ve been bbm-ing so I’ll take that as a good sign. Today, while I was ordering from the coffee shop next to my apartment I realized that the barista was pretty cute! I should have just turned around then, but no, instead I decided to set myself up for over 2 hours of lackluster, boring conversations. I did however thoroughly enjoy watching the penguins play because they are my favorite and just so stinking cute the way the waddle around and then dive into the water! I’m pretty sure that my enthusiasm for the penguins might have scared him a bit….especially when I told him about how my work has an instant message system with emoticons and how much I love the one of the dancing penguin. And then when we moved on to the polar bears I told him that they are my favorite type of bear because my teddy bear is a polar bear and he has on an argyle sweater and hat!! Note to self: do not mention teddy bears or dance like a penguin on my next date. And he hasn’t called me since, so for once I’m on the same page with someone! In other news, I have started studying for the GMAT so that I can go back to get my MBA part-time starting sometime in 2011. 84% fueled by my hope that I will meet a smart, single, attractive, man in the process. I have not been on a date since the one with the Personal Trainer (PT) last week. That crazy guy who kept calling me after our horrendous date. There is an amazing place right next to my office that has the best coffee I have ever tasted—the problem is it is .50 for 12 ounces. Don’t worry, I limit myself to once a week, but still…e-Book News It is a truth too rarely acknowledged, that a commuter in possession of a sophisticated electronic device, must be in want of a good book.
Originally, my master plan was to go to med school so that I could find myself a doctor but the fact that I literally pass out (and have to be rushed to the hospital in an ambulance in front of hundreds of my high school peers on a marching band trip in 10th grade) at the sight of blood sort of foiled that plan. Today I received a picture of him in a hammock on the beach. Still, that has the potential of some risky business. Then I thought about it, and he actually wasn’t all that cute, but the fact that he was providing me with my coffee took him up like 50 levels in the cuteness factor.
I definitely secretly still have a crush on him 😉 2) DB loved good coffee just as much as I did.
One of our first conversations was about our mutual love for it and it was at that moment I knew I would fall hard for him.
Yes, I know my life is one that would turn a normal human into an alcoholic but after searching through my wealth of knowledge for a reason why my pants were shrinking in the dryer when I air them and being unable to convince myself that all of a sudden clothes shrink in the washer too…. At one point, I literally screamed “THIS IS INSANE”, waking up everyone within a 20 mile radius of me. I just received this message: “It says on your profile you are a credit risk analyst, so I had a question for you.
If god forbid I’m still writing this blog at 40 that will clearly change, but for now, it’s fine. Have a good week.”) Called me Wednesday (I didn’t respond), texted me inviting me to a movie on Thursday (I didn’t respond), and called me twice Friday DURING THE DAY. Well, that isn’t entirely true—I think it happened once in 6th grade. Anyway, Jdate guy sent me a message and we emailed and bbmed for a few days and then he asked me out. To dinner/drinks last night and I was so surprised at how much fun I had. It would have been sooner, but I actually was worried that I was dying.
He bought top quality whole coffee beans and ground them fresh each time he made coffee.
