Hello my lovelies! It's been a while since I've done a "randomness" post. It was a very busy weekend. I'm not done with my urban hike post and the camera is at home anyways. This weekend wasn't very stitch productive so I've made progress but haven't finished Favorite Spot Sampler. Almost...4 more letters and 4 more motifs. Very close!
So we're left with my randomness and the thoughts that race through my head sometimes.
*How I talked on the phone with this one dating prospect. I hate talking on the phone and have pet peeves about it. I much prefer email or in person communication. My biggest pet peeve is when people are multi-tasking when you are talking to them. I think it's rude. If I receive a call while driving, I let it go to voicemail and I call that person back when I can devote my full attention to them. When someone calls me, I turn off the tv and give my undivided attention to that person. It's how I was raised and I believe it to be good manners. I feel slighted when people don't provide me their attention...especially if they are calling me. This guy was driving and almost went the wrong way because he was talking to me on the phone. I then had to wait while he righted himself. Not to mention the number of times I needed him to repeat himself as once he got home, I could hear him putting things away and dishes being banged about. I did most of the talking on that one since he doesn't seem like a conversationalist. I have to admit, it put me off. Hey man, I liked you in email but now I'm not so sure after talking to you! The same guy called me on Saturday...before 10am (!!)...and I was in the car and pressed for time so I let it go to voicemail. His message said "I'm at the shop waiting for my tires to be rotated so I had some spare time to call you." Be still my beating heart....how romantic. Not! It gives me the impression he only has time to talk to me when he is trying to burn some time.
*Dating rule #123 - No calling before 10am or after 9pm. Some girls need their beauty sleep, especially on the weekend.
*I have phone phobia after years of being a telephone switchboard supervisor. Despite this background, I have issues figuring out how my cell phone works!
*Most guys don't believe in astrology but I do. I think I have a quip for every sign. In the end, I think I just need to meet a nice, cute Libra man and I will be set. I'm off Geminis for a bit...need to recover after the last one.
*I have never encountered so many flaky men in my life! I have a 33% rate of return on my dating investments. Not very good. For every 3 men I "talk" to, I meet one. The last one took 3 days to plan. I said Sunday worked for me and he said he'd contact me with details. I waited and waited and waited. It is not cool to hold up someone's whole day because they refuse to plan. It's not that hard to pick a time and place! I think this is how I end up planning all the time!
*I had a terrible dream in which one of my friends died terribly and it spooked me like you wouldn't believe. It seemed so real that I really pondered it if was a dream. I usually don't have bad dreams and if I do, it's usually about being attacked by spiders. I hate spiders!
*I finally broke down and ordered the new iPhone 4s last week. I had a bad feeling about it so I stopped by the Verizon store to check in on my order and wouldn't you know it?! My order went *poof* into some abyss never to be found! At this point...no iPhone for me before my NY trip which is a huge bummer.
*I leave for NY in less than 2 weeks! I'm not ready!
*Bi-Rite Salted Caramel ice cream is decadant. So glad I don't live close or I would be buying multiple quarts of that stuff and calling it dinner. Yummy!
*How is it that I go to Trader Joe's to buy lunch and walk out with $65 worth of food?!
*It's so hard to have a lazy weekend when you've become a social diva. I'm having fun but o.m.g. so behind on everything and the apartment is a wreck! I think I need to try and have a lazy upcoming weekend and force myself to get home stuff done and plan for NY.
*I visited with my folks yesterday and when I got there, I explained I could only be there for 2 hours so that they knew upfront and I could avoid any guilt tripping when I was leaving. My mom was busy when I left and I tried shouting through the door that I was leaving. Deaf as she is, she didn't hear me. An hour later, she leaves me a guilt trip voice mail. I am over the guilt tripping. Don't they realize that they are driving me away? No kid wants to hear the same shit over and over again which in essence makes them feel terrible. If you are a parent...don't so this. It upsets me so much. My sister tells me to ignore it but how can you ignore something that is constant? I'm not lucky enough to have 1500 miles separating me from my parents and they understand nothing about youth, fun or trying to have a social life. They don't "get" me...never have. In their eyes, I'm a failure of a daughter because I refuse to live at home and take care of them and if I don't do that, then I should at least visit everyday. So tired of the "broken record" feeling with this situation.
*Busy weekend...birthday dinner (not mine), city tour and urban hike with my new friend, errands and dinner/drinks out. Amazing how fast a weekend goes by!
Hope you all have a great week!
Until next time...
