It's the last workday of the year! YAY! And, there are only two of us in the office today. YAY! All I have to do is pound out my monthly report for December and, then, I am surfing the internetz for the rest of the day. SUH-weet.
So, last night, I had a first date with this guy, R, who I met on OKCupid. He seems nice enough, but he, like the few other guys I have met on that site, has the slight whiff of desperation about him. Or something. Or a tinge of the crazy. I'm not sure what it says about me since I am also on the site. Or maybe I am sure, but I am unwilling to admit it.
ANYWAY, we met at the Clarendon metro station (in Arlington ... where I did see some guy wearing brown flip-flops (um? hello? it was 30 degrees outside. Put on some fucking shoes and sucks, douchebag!)). On the way to the little coffeeshop place, I unexpectedly ran into my
friend, Carolyn. So totally random! She got a new (and awesome) job in Pennsylvania and is only in town for a few days. We are going to get together for brunch on Monday. YAY! A great way to start the New Year, for SURE!
Back to the date, very nice. Handsome. Very talky. And a bit too into the fitness/exercise/gym scene. Apparently, he used to be overweight and is now all into being exercise-y. I, on the otherhand, have neither been overweight nor have ever been into being all exercise-y.
So, to sum up: nice guy. handsome. possibly slightly crazy. really not much spark. but, overall, worthy of a second date, i think.
AND, for the rest of the weekend ... tonight, I am having a New Year's Eve Eve celebration with Eric from Baltimore, Tomokito, and SCGB. I also invited the young (well-hung) ex-Marine. A couple of days ago he said he might come; however, he is also a little flaky. I am not
holding my breath. We are going to Nellie's for happy hour and then to Alero for foodz. YUM!
On New Year's Eve, I will be spending the day scouring my filthy house. I am determined to start the New Year with a clean (and mostly cat-hair free) home. Then, in the evening, I believe I am hanging out and having sake with Tomokito (and Hana).
Sunday, I am having boozy lunch with A (from two summers ago. He texted me out of the blue last night). And, on Monday (Federal Holiday! YAY!), I am meeting Carolyn for brunch. At some point during those two days, I also need to do major grocery shopping (Hello, $75 Trader Joe's gift card from my parents) and ironing (yuck). And probably some martini drinking ... Y'know ...
Well, have a wonderful weekend and a Happy New Year!
*fingers crossed that 2012 is a good year for us all (but, especially, me)*
See you on the flip side!
