Introducing: Radio

For a long time, I’ve had a secret crush on a man who works in my building. A man who just so happens to be on the radio weekday mornings. A man I'll refer to as Radio. A man who comes off as having a heart of gold. A man who I’ve found attractive for a long time, but I’ve never quite figured out a way to break the ice…until a few weeks ago.
Perhaps this is a bit stalkerish of me, but a few weeks ago, he happened to say his last name on-air. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to look him up on facebook, and although his profile was blocked, I sent him a message. It was an awkward message, but, in a nutshell, I asked him if he’d be willing to go out to lunch with me.
It took him three days to respond….but he accepted my invite, and sent me his phone number, as texting was easier for him than facebook messaging.
A few days of texting without setting our lunch date quickly wore on my nerves…I’m a girl of little patience, especially when it comes to something I want….I was as forward as I could appropriately be, and I told him I would be going out for lunch on a Friday, and if he was free he should meet up with me. When I didn’t hear a response from him for a day, I sent him another text that said “or not”. My text caught his attention, and he told me (via text) that he had a meeting. The man has no reason to lie to me, and I have no reason to believe he’s lying to me…he said Monday would work better, so I penciled him in.
Monday rolled around, and I made sure to look as hot as I could while still dressing appropriate for work….And then, I received his text. “I have another meeting. I don’t think I’ll be able to make it. Can we meet tomorrow?” I didn’t know how to feel…confused? Annoyed? Frustrated? Understanding?
I chose the high road, and told him that was fine….but I had to vent to someone about it. I chose my sister in law, as she’s also a single-fully employed-college student-mother, but it was after 4:30, so she had left her job for the day….a text was the only way to directly have my snarky venting message reach her.
“BTW, if he cancel’s on me tomorrow I’m going to respond with “STRIKE THREE JOE MAUER, YOU’RE OUT OF HERE.” I hit the send button, and was immediately confused……
OF COURSE I DIDN’T SEND THE TEXT TO MY SISTER IN LAW…I SENT IT TO HIM, RADIO. I can honestly say I can’t remember a time when I was more embarrassed in my life. I hate technology. I hate text messaging…and this entire incident has reconfirmed my hate for electronic communication.
To be continued…

Newsflash: Video didn’t kill the radio star….Texting did.

Do the numbers lie?

There as a news story on numerology last night....I guess the date 1/1/11 was their inspiration, I digress.

This got me to thinking, I wonder what MY numerology life path would look like..? I couldn't resist taking a look at a numerology website, even though I really don't believe in astrology or numerology. What harm could it do to take a peak at what the numbers said about me and my life.

Here's what it said:
2011 is a year of dynamic change for you. Many surprises will come her way, and you better be open and ready to embrace new opportunities.
You must not be overly careful this year. 2011 is a year in which a major step forward can take place if she is willing to take some calculated risks and do a little gambling. Wisdom and prudence is the key, but you will definitely be faced with choices that require fast action and a willingness to act before all the facts are in. This is an exciting year in which she will be required to promote herself in order to take full advantage of the opportunities that await her. There will be increased opportunity to travel and possibly a change of residence.
You may be tempted by the desires of the flesh: too much food, alcohol, sex, and drugs. She must be careful and discriminate. You could make mistakes in these areas.
She will have some unexpected adventures and lucky breaks during 2011. This can be an unsettling year if she tries to cling to outmoded methods or characteristics. This a year to throw off the old and adopt the new. It is a rebirth and a release after last year's struggle.
2011 is a year in which change takes place consistently, and particularly so in April and May. July 2011 is a breakthrough, a time to enjoy life. September 2011 can be intense, while October 2011 requires tact and balance in relationships.

What's my honest to god reaction...? I like it. It's not perfect (because, lets be honest, life RARELY is...)...but it seems fairly spot-on. I'm starting school, I currently AM open to change, and I'm ready to conquer the world. Boom boom pow.

Do you believe in numerology or astrology? How do you feel about tit?

2010 was a stellar year for me. I decided at the end of 2009 to dedicate 2010 to me...and that's exactly what I did.

  • I took myself to the spa, pampering myself with a massage, manicure, facial, hair cut and some new hair color.
  • I booked my very first "family vacation" for myself and baby boy.
  • I wore dresses in the summer.
  • I had people over for bbq's.
  • I made new friendships.
  • I weened myself away from unhealthy relationships,
  • I took a mini road trip to the north shore, a place I had never explored before.
  • I sorted out my past school financial crap, trudged through the muck, and am now a college student for the third time in my life.
  • I worked on me, myself and I, doing my best to make sure I was and am the person I want to be.

2010 really was a fantastic year for me....Here's to hoping the same, and at the risk of being selfish, here's to hoping for more in 2011.

Happy New Year.
