We are in the middle of another cold snap with tempatures averaging -15 c. Not the coldest we’ve seen this winter, but still fucking cold. When I arrived at work today and walked up to my office, I was greeted with COLD. Hell ya, two of the four furnaces are not running due to some kind of blockage on the roof. I’ve had my big winter parka on for 3 hours with a personal heater blasting directly on me, and I’m still freezing my ass off. I normally don’t mind winter, but then again, I can normally find refuge INSIDE. Ah well, such is life.
Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned, it’s been almost a week since I’ve posted anything, and I’m still catching up on all your blogs. I’d like to say it’s been a lack of time that has kept me from writing, but that would be a lie. In truth, It’s pure laziness. I haven’t been inspired to write, and I haven’t forced myself to write regardless of my lack of inspiration. Now that I have that confession off my chest, let me catch you up on my deliriously entertaining life. (Them there words have been heavily laced with sarcasm)
Since my last post, I have been out on 3 dates. The first one was with a soccer coach who is moving to town at the end of the month. I met him last Thursday after my fitness class at a local brew pub. Here’s my review on the Soccer Coach:
- Pro’s — not bad looking, doesn’t smoke, has a job, likes dogs, no kids
- Con’s — arrogant, committment issues, didn’t pick up
the tab, 5’9, bad eating habits
Mr. Soccer coach seemed to think pretty highly of himself. I guess in junior soccer, coaches are somewhat of a rockstar to the single mothers. He basically told me this in so many words. My response — then date a single soccer mom.
On Saturday evening, I met up with a pretty cool guy. He has a fairly non-traditional job: he makes his living producing videos on YouTube. I’m not going to mention what the videos are about for the sake of his privacy, but I found him to be honest, attractive, and a gentleman (he paid). I liked him enough to have a second date the following day. However, he has some qualities that might make things difficult if this ends up going anywhere. First — he smokes. Both cigarettes and pot. Honestly, I don’t really care that he smokes pot, but cigarettes not so much. As a non-smoker of 12 years, I don’t like being around people who smoke. I can’t stand the smell, and if I’m drinking it adds temptation.
Secondly, he isn’t active and his eating habits are the shits. Again, I work very hard to try and eat healthy. I personally don’t care what he eats, but I know that it will be harder for me to stick to my healthy habits if I’m constantly subjected to his unhealthy ones. I keep unhealthy foods out of my house for a reason. If they were there, I’d eat them.
Still, I do like him, and I plan to hang out with him again. There may not be a future for us, but I see no harm in having some fun. I might even make a new friend.
Besides all my whoring around (the most physical contact I had on my dates was a hug), I’ve started my next course, and I’m still dealing with renovations. Life is moving along which is definitely better than the alternative. Time to move around a bit before my fingers freeze completely off.
