Where the Heck Have I Been?

I've been out of commission (in the blog writing category) for two weeks. Yikes!

Here's why:
At the urging of my [young] neighbor and ofttimes work out partner, I joined OKCupid and have been dating! Egads!

Y'all, dating is HARD WORK for an introvert! But when I decide to do something, I'm in for a penny, in for a pound.

I had two dates last Saturday and was relieved (say it with me - RELIEVED) when date #3 didn't show on Sunday. Used the unexpected, but welcome, alone time to savor a really fantastic piece of German Chocolate cake at Francesca's, bought the cutest watch ever at Vaguely Reminiscent and went home.

This past Friday I had a very nice date with a 31 year old. They Lord.
Anon CP wryly commented, "Apple, tree", alluding to my mother and the much younger evil BF. Just as I took a swig of coffee. Said coffee almost came out my nose from laughing. But guess what? I would totally go out with him again. (and shhhhh... if he went in for a kiss, I so would.)

This morning I had a lovely coffee date with an age appropriate gentleman who's from New Orleans originally. You can hear it in his voice (it's a lovely accent).
Thursday I have a date with someone from Charlotte; scary amount of things in common with him, including being a seventh generation Floridian, born in J'ville. (We've determined we are not cousins. Whew!)
And this coming Saturday, date #2 with date #2 from last Saturday.

All that reading of profiles, answering messages, and deleting the [surprisingly numerous] ones from 22 year olds who think ancient ladies such as myself are needing to be laid by them, (really?!), is exhausting.

Meanwhile, the leaves are finally turning:
East Campus of Duke University
Andrea of Go Ask Alice sent me the cutest Sock Monkey calendar. But even more special was the lovely note she wrote (she said I was elegant. Can you imagine?!). When (that's right, when) I go to Portland, I am so visiting her and Alice.

What the heck else? I think that's it for now. Stay tuned....



"Holy Holy Holy" by Wye Oak
Songwriters: Wasner, Jennifer Lynn
Holy, holy, holy
There is no other story
Holy, holy, holy
It is blindly seeking my story

Hold me, hold me, hold me
Would you like to know me?
And don't fall unless to free
And lonely seeking as they need

Further choice and secrets our heart stores
We are the only way in my real world
A children for the blessed, for an old count
A tri-star upon your mind in my delight

All they say is, can we contain this?
A human, you're his precious
And I, oh sure, know this
When everyone should know this

Holy, holy, holy
There is no other story
It is blindly seeking my story
We will be who we want to be

Further choice and secrets our heart store
We are the only way in my real world
A children for the blessed, for an old count
A tri-star upon your mind in my delight

Ah, you will be mine
Ah, you will be mine
Ah, you will be mine
Ah, you will be mine

Holy, holy, holy
There is no other story
Holy, holy, holy

  1. I'm happy you're dating because your descriptions are so fun to read.

    And you ARE elegant dammit. Is this some southern girl thing, this denial of the obvious? I'll hear no more of it.

    You are so very welcome to visit us here in PDX. I really hope you do.
