NG update…

In my blog Speed Date update, I told you about NG. Well as optimistic as I was, I was really expecting never to hear from him again. I kind of thought he was someone I met that the Universe sent my way to remind me why I actually continued to date even though most guys I have met over the last few years were assholes. Basically to keep me from spending the rest of my life in a bathrobe covered in potato chip crumbs. Glad to see I was wrong. After he returned to NC, I received a text from him which said “have a great weekend.” What I saw was “have a nice life.” Then Monday he was right back to texting me again.

Yesterday he texted me to confirm our date for next Wednesday when he comes back to Philly and to make sure it was alright if we had a late dinner, his flight lands at 8:30, that’s awesome because if I go out I prefer to do it late at night when my mom is in bed and my kids have settle into their rooms for the evening.

Looking forward to going out with NG. Now I need to figure out what to wear.

I’m a sports fan Damnit!!!

I love contact sports only, so shit like baseball, Indy 500 and golf are all lost on me. I am so much of a fan that I am getting the Dallas Cowboys star tattooed on me. Yeah that much love.

I have been watching the Rocky movies all day yesterday, all I can say is I wish Boxing was as good as those movies. You can watch boxing all night and not see a fight between boxers like you see with Rocky and Apollo Creed. The most exciting fight I’ve seen to date is the Bernard Hopkins fight when the young guy turned it into a damn wrestling match, lmao.

That being said… wtf is Rocky Balboa’s first name? I always assumed it was Robert because in Rocky II Adrian says she wants to name the baby after his father. You find out in III, IV, V and Rocky Balboa the ungrateful brat’s name.

Speed Dating update…

Funny how things work out. I went to my speed dating event and noticed right away that it seem… off. The bar it was being hosted in was way too small to have 10 to 30 singles as the ad boasted. The other thing was there were on 6 ppl there including me. I figured there was an upstairs or downstairs where the event was being hosted. After my niece arrived (my wingman for the night.) I inquired about the event. When I told the barmaid why I was there, she looked confused. Apparently the event stopped being held at that location months ago. She asked was I sure the email was for yesterday and not an old one. I showed her the email and she just shrugged, let me tell u, I am so glad I didn’t register in advance like the email requested. I would have been out of 50 bucks (it was 24.99 per person).

So after a few cocktails, my niece and I take a stroll down South Street to check out the happenings. We end up at a hotel bar and guess what I met the nicest guy. After a few more cocktails we head down to a local nightclub. Drink some more and my niece leaves me alone with NG. After I crash a bachelorette party, stealing two boas and remembered just in time that I was a klutz. That prevented from taking a trip to the emergency room because just beforehand I was considering doing a pole climb on this stripper pole in the night club.

I had good night and NG put me in a cab after giving me a good night kiss. I spent today texting him on and off. So, I didn’t meet anyone during the scam speed dating event but I did meet a groovy guy (yeah I said groovy). Did I mention he doesn’t live in Philly? He lives in NC, about an hour from Myrtle Beach. For now I don’t have to worry about the relocation conversation I was worried about before, at least not with this guy. He comes to Philly often and says he wants to see me when he’s in town.

For today, I’m happy and that’s all I can ask for because tmrw’s not promised.

T minus 5…

Okay I have five hours before this thing and I’m hoping it isn’t a mess. Everytime I have gotten excited about something in the past few years it turned out to be a bust. Anything that has had anything to do with men, that is…

I know I’m not sending out desperate or low self-esteem vibes because I not desperate and if I were sending out low self-esteem vibes, well men would be flocking to me like flies to shit.  Maybe it’s where I’m going? When I went to AC the guys were definitely younger and were real “pump your fist” type guys. Idk, I guess we’ll have to wait and see…

Drinking made easy…

I have to say I love, LOVE this show. For anyone who hasn’t seen the show, it is about three guys and a stuffed monkey named Pleepleus (I think that’s the spelling), going city to city trying out different drinks at different bars with historical backgrounds. So far my favorite drink would be the Bacon martini. It’s made from Bacon infused vodka. I speak about my family, old loves, ex-boyfriend (not the same thing), single parenting, my books I will probably never finish, business endeavors and my sick parents. Ooo, Ooo forgot weight loss but never my love for pork or my obsession with bacon. If it were legal, I would marry bacon. My favorite episode of Iron Chef is the one where they have the bacon challenges but I digress.

I was going to do this whole letter writing campaign to get them to come to Philly, turns out they have already been here and although it has been quite informative, they skipped over some really great bars. Do they have historical relevance, um don’t know but they do have mighty fine drinks, lmfao. So now I am off to find some cool bars and write the shit out of the show to get them to come back, maybe they will call it Philly part dos. If I’m leaving my great city… damn it I’m going to try to leave with a bang!

The only thing I wish more than that, is that I created that show 😦

Speed Dating…

I have a speed dating event tmrw. I have no clue what to expect that there are supposed to be singles there between 24 and 37. Weird age group for mingling right. I have dated Timberlands before (nickname I use for young guys) and we rarely have things in common. Hell, I rarely have things in common with men my age, which is why I normally don’t date men my age. I normally date older guys.

Anywho, I am excited about the event, even though when I first brought up the topic in a post a year ago, one of my blog buddies kinda discouraged me from doing it. I just feel as though I’m better in person than on paper. As far as my previous post, the one about not knowing what I would do about a probable dating someone before I relocated to SC, I figure I will cross that bridge when/if I get to it. Why make myself cray cray for no reason. I haven’t dated anyone new since me and Tv Guy broke up for good last June. I had a bike ride buddy or two in the last couple of months but nothing serious, so why worry about something that will probably never happen.

Later Days,

Day 3…

I was honestly thinking I would wake up sore from doing an hour of Zumba yesterday but I felt okay. Doing it again tonight but only for 40 minutes.

For those of u who are sick of me talking about me trying to lose these 20 or 30 lbs, here is some of what u signed up for… I’m going to be doing Speed Dating on Wednesday, that is, if my sister shows up. We haven’t spoken since last Monday and she has yet to answer text about her availability on Wednesday (p.s. she hasn’t been here since my mom came back from her most recent hospital visit last Monday). She will probably pull the “Okie Doke” on me and tell me she can’t be here until Thursday but guess what the event is both Wednesday and Thursday, so the jokes on her.

Should I make it out Wednesday, I will post about who I may have met, if anyone… curious to see who shows up to these things. I plan on doing Zumba right before I leave because I feel so energized afterwards.

I will let u know how I make out.

Gotta shake this feeling…

It may be my isolation recently but I have been missing my ex a lot lately. It may also be the fact that I have been up late at night and he is one of the few ppl who is up at this hour.  Tv Guy and I have never been apart this long before, although I have always wanted “the last break up” to actually beTHE last break up this one seems to be the one that actually stuck.

I have been fighting every urge to call him. I know nothing will come of us being together but he was my friend for so long, I feel like something is missing when we don’t talk for any length of time. I know he doesn’t feel the same. I have always felt like a place holder in his life. I felt like I was always giving and receiving little or nothing in return. So I ended it, time and again, hoping he would come to his senses and see what he’s missing but it never happened. We would end up back together out of mutual loneliness. His last attempt, a few months ago, was weak at best and I blew him off (not that way you pervs).

I want to date but time is the only thing I really don’t have, not to mention my little relocation 500 miles away from Philly. What do u tell a guy u just met and are interested in seeing more than once? If I say something like, “I just want to have fun, nothing serious”, he thinks it’s just a sexual relationship. If I don’t tell him I’m relocating to SC, then I’m a douche for letting him become vested in a relationship that has no potential of going anywhere unless he is willing to relocate. So what do I do? Any suggestions? I can’t start up anything with someone in Myrtle Beach because I don’t know when I will be relocating to Myrtle Beach it could be December or as late as March 2013. If me and said lucky bachelor get along via email and phone (won’t be returning to Myrtle Beach until I relocate permanently) and we meet in person and can’t stand each other then what?

Thinking too much, going to bed. Night all.
