Mmmm, honeydew...

Being sick with a knock-down, drag-out, kick-me-in-the-ass head cold for the past 5 days has left me with a lot of time on my hands... of that little time out of bed / off the couch, I have been hanging with my ratties.

Last night I had the chance to see Caleb VERY contentedly enjoying one of the several pieces of honeydew melon I had given to all my little furkids. He was so happy in fact, he decided to sit IN the food dish that he shares with his brother, Hardy, in an attempt to not share. haha

Look at those little hands... eyes... ears... and, that nose! ADORABLE!

(*Note to self: Clean food bowl, though cage can wait.)

Friday Night's First Date

We met on-line during my "trial period," and have since cancelled my membership... due to not seeing / finding anyone that I may have been interested in... with the exception of "R."

He lives in Golden, and with the help / suggestion of my friend and co-worker Renee (Richard's wife), I decided that meeting at the Boulder Tea House was a good idea... easy for him to get to, (and of course, easy for me as well), and... he likes tea. I'm not a "fan" of tea, but knew they had decaf Chai... so, I was good to go.

In a nutshell, it was an enjoyable date... but was like being out for a bite to eat with a friend. I felt no sparks at all, none of that magical "chemistry" feeling that makes me want to, well, at least kiss the person I'm on the date with. I was hoping that our mutual interests / views could produce the kind of connection that I'm looking for (in person)... but, it didn't. It wasn't enough.

I left the date knowing that "R" is a great guy, and someone I would like to be friends with, but I saw / felt nothing else.

We said goodbye at our cars, he asked what I was doing on Sat. and if he could call me, I said sure. What's wrong with a phone call, right?

Needless to say, we haven't spoken. He never did call... and honestly, I'm a bit relieved. Perhaps he sensed my disinterest in him? Perhaps he was just doing "the guy thing," and asking if he could call again, with no interest in doing so? Either way, it's for the best... no reason for either of us to have that uncomfortable, "I just want to be friends," talk.

To sum it up: No second date. I remain the "One-Date-Wonder Queen."

P.S. Why do so many men embellish on their height? He had been telling me all along that he was 5'9" tall... when he is really only a couple inches taller than me, 5'6". I have no problem or issue with the height of 5'6", I just expect honesty regarding such issues. :/ Pictures DON'T tell the whole story... especially if it's a close-up head shot only. (I'm not looking for perfection, I'm merely expecting an honest depiction to go by.) Word to the wise...

What is Wrong with People??? What is Wrong with Me???

I'm exchanging a few E-mails with an out-of-state family member yesterday, and it's basically idle chit-chat. The E-mails initiated by talk about our cold weather here in Colorado... to stay warm, etc. I let her know all was well, that I was planning on staying inside with the exception of a few errands and a "first date type-thing." Of course she wrote back asking about the date... where / how we met, etc., and I told her "on-line," and how the first meeting always brings out a lot of nervousness.

The next thing I know, the response I'm getting is one of surprise and hurt.

"If you are honest to begin with, why should they expect a raving beauty? You are not beautiful, but you sure as hell have a dynamite personality and many more good traits that a good man would appreciate. Just keep at it. Until you are tired of
all the work that goes into it. He doesn't
have to be handsome, but kind and personable would be nice."

I am not beautiful? Excuse me? Did she really flat out say, "You are not beautiful?"

I'm proud of myself for not letting what she said slide. I wrote back letting her know exactly how it made me feel and that it would have been better for her to keep such a comment to herself.

Am I not as cute as I think I am? Is it not even worth the effort that I put into looking my best everyday, doing my hair and makeup... spritzing on my favorite perfume... because I'm THAT unattractive and I just don't realize it?

Or is it that there are more people than I care to admit that are that hurtful and fail to consider other people's feelings?

FUCK OFF!... to you people who try (and sometimes succeed) in making me feel badly about myself (if even for a moment). Life is difficult enough without your unkindness.

"Stupid Girls"

I found this video while browsing YouTube, and I LOVE IT... so true, and funny too. Damn I love Pink.

"... I'm so glad that I'll never fit in
That will never be me
Outcasts and girls with ambition
That's what I wanna see..."
