Making God Laugh

What’s that old joke – How do you make God laugh? Make a plan.

Well, as of yesterday morning I had plans to have a total of 5 dates this week.  The first was Sunday night.  Then I was supposed to have one last night (Wednesday).  One today.  One tomorrow night.  And one Saturday night = 1+1+1+1+1=5.  The first four were first dates and then on Saturday night I have plans for a with the musician.

Well, hahahahaha.  Last night’s date got cancelled/rescheduled.  Just as I was stressing over whether or not I really wanted to go out with the guy he called and left me a vm saying he couldn’t make it. Car trouble.  I called him back and he was actually very sweet and apologetic.  I told him it was fine and we could reschedule.  So if he calls back and he’s nice and still sweet then I’ll go out with him.  If he sends an email that’s borderline assholish I won’t bother.

Today I was supposed to get together with someone new.  But I cancelled/rescheduled that because, well quite frankly, it’s one of the coldest days we’ve had so far and I don’t want to go out.  I can’t imagine feeling pretty and sexy in this frozen tundra.

Tomorrow is still a go and I’m really looking forward to it.  The guy picked a really smart place.  Convenient for me (not inconvenient for him) mellow and fun.  We’ve already spoken and exchanged enough emails for me to at least know he’s probably not arrogant jerk.

So that brings me back to just 3 dates this week.  Only 3.

Oh, btw.  You might have noticed.  I’ve killed the .  I apologize to the few of you who were enjoying that feature.  I really liked doing it.  But as I was trying to clean up the look of the blog, I realized it was pretty unnecessary and that probably most folks didn’t even click on it.  I reserve the right to throw in some music when I really need it, though.

    I assure you, I’m not worthy of being anyone’s idol.

    3 is not bad. And looks like you postponed 2 so you still have 5 coming…just not in a week. These changes will be for the best, I really believe that. Excited to see how they will work out.

    Interesting to see that it was only a couple of weeks ago, you removed yourself from the space altogether.
