Packed Day

Today was a fun day. It was so beautiful out. Felt like spring almost, even though in reality it was maybe 43 degrees out. But compared to the dark cold snowy days we've been having lately, it was a welcome change. I went to brunch with T2. We've seen each other a few more times now, and he's very nice. Still feeling it out. He's nice, but something about him just doesn't get me super excited. Just can't put my finger on it, so for now I'm just seeing where it goes.

So we went to brunch at this really nice french place in meat-packing. I got scrambled eggs with lots of yummy sides and had about 3 grapefruit mimosas (YUM). We chatted, we ate, we drank. It was a very nice brunch. Then when I go to get up, i turn around and literally 1 foot behind me at the table next to ours is T! Just my luck, I would go on a date with a guy and end up running into the other guy I'm seeing and of course he'd be sitting right behind me without me even knowing. I don't know if he knew I was there or if he could overhear our conversation or see T2 touching my leg under the table. Suffice it to say that I totally blushed. I can't help it! When I get embarrassed, I blush. It sucks. Not sure if T noticed. He said Hey how are you! etc etc and shook my hand hello (thank god) and introduced me to his friend (or date.. lol) and we chatted about the place since he'd never been either and then that was that. I think in reality it was only awkward for me. T2 didn't really even notice. I mean the conversation only lasted for as long as it took to put my coat on. Nonetheless, it was awkward.

After that, I was slightly shaken, but quickly brushed it off. T2 and I went looking for sunglasses and eventually gave up, since I was looking for something specific and he was heading to the gym. We said our goodbyes and I got on the train to head back downtown.

Got off in Soho and went to the Oliver Peoples store. They had the glasses, but not in the right color. Said they could order them and have them by the next day, but I was in one of those moods where I knew what I wanted and I wanted it NOW. Haha. So I made a b-line for Bloomingdales. I found them, tried them on again, and promptly purchased them. I figured now was as good a time as any to say yes to opening a Bloomingdales card, so I did. :) Got almost 30% off because it was some sort of special discount weekend. Sweet!! They're Paul Smiths. And I Love them. Of course the weather says it's going to rain for the next week. Figures...

After that I had to go into work for a few hours and it's all pretty boring from there on.

Although, I did watch that new show, How to Make it in America. LOVE IT. Mostly, I just love Brian Greenberg. I've had a major thing for him ever since he was in Prime with Uma Thurman. I also like that it's set in NYC. They had a scene in a restaurant that I've been to, Freeman's, and my roommate and I realized Hey, we sat at that table! I always love when that happens. :)

Sometimes You're Just in the Mood

So you know how they say, "When it rains, it pours." Well apparently the opposite is also true. When you just want to meet up with a guy for a little fun and someone to sleep with, inevitably no one will be available. Maybe it's just karma for turning people down so often when that's all they want. But seriously, over the last two days, it's been nothing but a long line of guys who aren't available, or a sick, or someone is staying in their apartment, or their roommates are home, or they had too much to drink and need to pass out, or they just stop responding. I don't know why I was in the mood to go meet up with someone, but I just was. Maybe it's because I haven't had any action for a month... I don't know. :P

I actually went on a date yesterday too funnily enough. Met a guy on a dating (hookup) site. He's 30. Lives in UWS (upper west side). Very cute. Very good at conversation. We had a nice brunch in the West Village. Might meet up with him today to watch the game. We'll see. Let's call him T2. The other T is still out of town and I haven't heard from him. I emailed him earlier in the week to see how he was doing. No response. Maybe he's just really bad at responding though. Stuff like that drives me crazy because I'm completely the opposite. I respond pretty much as soon as I receive something. If I don't, I won't remember to go back to it.

So today is the Super Bowl. I'll be honest. I'm not a football fan. To me, it's any other day. But my one roommate, the one that none of us really like all that much, is having a bunch of his friends over to watch the game. Like ten of them. We don't actually mind him. It's his girlfriend and the fact that they're always cooking and making weird messes that's a pain. Yesterday we couldn't figure out why the apartment smelled like garbage. Turns out it was an open can of beans that had been sitting on the counter with a piece of tinfoil over them for the last week. Neither of them understand that if you leave things out, they will go bad. They'll leave cheese out on the counter over night. Or bags of chopped vegetables. It's SO weird. Or he'll put something in tupperware and stick it in the fridge, but it'll just be the bowl with no lid. It's the container and then they'll put a piece of saran wrap over it instead of just finding the lid. WTF. Anyway, he and his (high pitched, naggy, annoying) girlfriend are having 10 of their friends over here and I'd like to make myself scarce.
