Good morning, kittens.
Yesterday was not the best of days.
For one thing, I started missing D. It really sucks when you meet someone with whom you really click, but he's going through some s**t and doesn't seem to have the time/desire to date. At least that's my impression. It could also be that he really wasn't all that in to me (which is kind of hard to believe. I am fabulous) and used the whole Life Crisis thing as an excuse.
But, I've decided to not contact him until mid-month, when he leaves for a 10 day vacation. And all I will say is "have a safe trip" or something to that effect. In the meantime, the cranberry juice which I bought for him to drink when he was supposed to come over remains undrunk. And the DVD we were going to watch remains unwatched. *sigh*
At some point, I suppose I will get thirsty and desire entertainment ... and those stupid little hurdles will be crossed.
And, I guess I eventually will stick my toe back in the dating pool again, too. Because, as they say, you can't win if you don't play.
Meanwhile, K-Factor did not go to pottery class last night, which meant I had to take the Metro ... which meant I had to rush home and rush around the house trying to get my stuff together and eat and change. During that chaotic scramble, I slammed my wrist into my bedroom doorknob. Owzer. There is now a cute little welt.
Then, at pottery, the five mugs I made at the end of the summer session were finally glaze fired. Unfortunately, on 3 of the 5 the glaze ran and stuck to the kiln. So, I had to use this motorized grindery thing to smooth out the glaze at the base of the mug. And, in case you didn't know, friction makes things hot. As I was turning one of the mugs to grind another spot, my finger touched where I had been previously grinding. And, Owzer. It burnssssss us. There is now a cute little blister on my left index finger. See? That made throwing a pots very difficult.
I did manage to ruin a halfway decent bowl. Luckily, Gina (the instructor) helped fix it. Yay.
Stay tuned for photos of the 5 mugs. And possibly a give-away ...
On the bright side, a certain leporiphilic* internet friend mailed me a Very Special Gift - the first 8 episodes of Mad Men 4 and lots and lots of music. I haven't had time to watch/listen, but soon ... very very soon. At least, it's not all bad news, right?
Have a great day! *smooches*
*I'm not sure, but I may have just made up a word.
