Chemistry? What chemistry?

I finally met LD Man. It didn't go so well. I will write more of an explanation once I know how to.

Guess I have some 'splainin' to do...

A quick little update blog for everyone! I know you've been checking my little spot here, anxiously awaiting my updates with bated breath!

I finally went out with Doc. It wasn't all I'd hoped it would be. He was in my city for a medical convention. I don't know if I mentioned that he lives about an hour and half drive from me. We met up for dinner and drinks the night after Obama became our President-elect (yep...happy dance!). Conversation was still casual and flirty, as usual. Afterward, I followed him back to his fancy hotel that they put him up in just to hang out. As we walked into the lobby, he looked behind us and saw two black women. He then said, "Let me slow down so those black girls don't think I'm with you."* I was like, "WTF???" All I could say back is "Wow." He tried to play it off as a joke, but that shit ain't funny to me. I would never even think to say something like that to someone! So needless to say, the night was ruined, and I left him alone at his hotel after a lull and an attempt at cool conversation. Of course, he hasn't called again.

The young coworker's Halloween party went off without a hitch. A drunken good time was had by all. We stayed up way too late, drank way too much, danced, played Cornhole**, and became rockstars with the help of Nintendo 360 and Rockband! The young coworker and I have recognized our attraction to one another, but we haven't acted on it. We have cooled the texting, but he does still ask me to hang out often. We've only done so once since the party. Oh yeah, and he still has his girlfriend.

KS still sends me the occasional "Good morning" text message a couple times a week. I still respond and never hear back til the next "Good morning." Sigh.

And last but definitely not least, I will finally meet LD Man tomorrow!!! I'm excited, nervous, scared, and in shock right now! I'll let you know how it goes! :)

*Doc is black, I'm not.
**Youtube it if you don't understand, because I really can't explain!

Tag! I'm it!

Both OG and Curvy Gurl have tagged me in the last few days! I just noticed, as I've been MIA from Blogworld lately. Again, I apologize for that! But I'm back now, bitches! :)

So according to the girls, I'm supposed to tell you all seven random things about myself. Here goes...

1. I recently became obsessed with the Twilight saga. And yes, I am aware that I am an adult!
Yes my friends, this is what I've been reading the last couple of weeks during my absence. I bought the first book two weeks ago and just could not put it down! I finally finished the fourth book a couple days ago. Now, I need to go see the movie to determine if it lives up to the books!

2. I cry if I see an animal hurt, live or on television.
Yeah, seeing humans physically hurt on television doesn't bother me, but a hurt animal gets the tears following every time. I especially can't stand to see humans be unnecessarily cruel to animals.

3. I don't remember my father.
My father and mother divorced when I was about four. He didn't keep in contact well, and I have no memory of him. He passed away a couple years ago, and some distant family found me. It was a surreal and sad experience. I regret never contacting him and never getting to know him.

4. I'm a sucker for cheesy holiday movies.
I can watch those silly Christmas movies on Lifetime all day long! :) They give me the warm and fuzzies.

5. I dance around in my underwear after I get out of the shower, while getting ready for my day.
I like to pretend I'm a sexy little sex kitten when no one is watching!

6. Very rarely do I "click" with people, male or female.
I have a quirky sense of sarcastic humor that only some people get and enjoy. Also, I'm not very good at "sugar-coating" things, so people often find me a little too honest. Don't get me wrong...I'm likable and friendly to coworkers and strangers. You just have to be strong and have a wicked sense of humor to really withstand and hang in my circle.

7. As outgoing and friendly as I can be, I'm SUPER shy with men!
I have tried time and again to approach strange men that I would like to meet but can never get up the nerve. Unfortunately, this often leaves me with men I'm not interested in asking me out, while the guys I really want to know haven't a clue how interested I am!

I tag the following:

I just wanted to apologize for leaving you all hanging with no news. I haven't been in a writing mood lately. I guess that sometimes happens. I've been reading more than writing. I promise some updates before the week's end! Things have been a blur lately, and I've had to step back and reflect again.

Doctor, Doctor!

I know you all want to know about the young coworker's party last night, but I'm going to share some other updates in this post.

Last weekend, I received a phone call from a man I dated for a couple months about a year ago. We have kept in touch since then and even hung out a couple times, but it has been a while since I've seen him. Somehow we ended up talking for 2 or so hours. I don't think we have talked like that since we first met. It was nice and comfortable. We've always gotten along well, but he is definitely a commitment phobe! When things began to head toward Relationshipville, he got scared. He admitted he didn't think he was at a point in his life where he could be in a serious relationship, so we remained friends.

This guy really is a "good on paper" guy though. He is a young, single doctor with the manners of a gentleman. He isn't too good looking, but he is attractive, so he is by no means narcissistic. We always have something to talk about when we hang out and there is never any awkwardness.

So when Doc called, we spent a while catching up. I told him about my new job and eventually about young coworker and his then upcoming party. Doc thought it sounded like fun and agreed to be my date. Unfortunately, he had to tentatively plan to be my date. He was on call this weekend, and sick people just refuse stay well around my party plans. Needless to say, Doc couldn't make it to the party due to a lady and her ventilator. By the way, the lady is fine and stable now. :)

I really wanted Doc to go, as he is fun to go out with, and he would have been a great buffer at young coworker's party. We have made plans to get together later this week though.

On a different note, KS still sends his "Good morning (SaneAndSingle). :)" text messages. I have been receiving them 2-3 times a week. I have responded to him every time with a "Good morning to you too." only to not hear from him again until the next "Good morning.:)" text! Silliness and nonsensical, imo...

In Over My Head

I know I haven't been around much lately, so I owe everyone an update. The young coworker and I have become very good friends. We have so much in common that people have mistaken our friendship for more at work. It has even caused some drama and gossip. I can't stand gossipy women. If you have nothing better to do besides assume that a man and woman who get along well are fucking, then you need to get a life!!! I'm just sayin'....:).

Maybe he and I do flirt a little, but our personalities are eerily similar and just click. But, uh, need I remind you that he has a damn girlfriend, AND he is ten years younger than I am?! In addition, he really isn't what I usually find physically attractive.

BUT....last weekend, he sent me a text about my favorite football team losing* and a text conversation to beat all text conversations then ensued. Yep, we texted for 12 fuckin' hours!!! Of course, we were both carrying on our individual lives of football watching, movie watching, video game playing, and other assorted activities. He admitted to me that his girlfriend and he weren't getting along so well and that she was pissed at him because he refused to go to one of her friends' parties with her. The young coworker even suggested that I come over to THEIR house and drink with him. I obviously declined, because what would that look like if the girlfriend came home and I'm there drunk??? I said to him, "I'm not trying to get cut by your gf!" He said, "Yeah I was thinking the same thing, especially if she caught us fucking" Um, my jaw dropped! I laughed it off and told him that that wouldn't happen because both of us have morals. To which he said, "LOL"! That's it...then the conversation turned to McCain vs. Obama then to whether Radiohead was a good band then to work, etc.

Sooooo....young coworker and girlfriend are hosting a party tonight. I'm going. How comfortable!

*Yeah, he's an asshole like I am!
