Back On The Horse

I am back on the dating wagon. The emails and instant messages are a flying. I am still hating everyone but there may be some juicy new posts if I ever go out with one of them. The second reason for posting when I had thought that I would give it up forever is to vent. Yes, we all love to vent don't we?
I am having post traumatic divorce disprter. I don't know if I need medication, therapy or revenge but I need something. I keep having these thoughts of Dave's (that's the husband) funeral. I picture him dead very often actually. I am not sure if this is normal or not so I was hoping if any divorcees out there would chime in and let me know if I am crazy.
I actually had this very long and drawn out phone conversation with the ex last week. He was not very helpful but did offer to pay for some therapy. Nice huh?
I will keep my ears open for the yeas or nays on the crazy factor.

I haven't blogged in so long that I think I forget how, so you will have to forgive me if I sound like a moron or at least make fun of me behind my back.
What's been going on since July you ask? Not too much there has been working, shopping, drinking, lots of hanging out with A and random boys that I don't like.

Work is going well I am fitting right in. The job may be mindnumbingly boring but they pay me to do very little so I am set!

My social life is pretty much the same A and I go out a lot and spend lots of time hanging out watching the ole reality TV. I have a crush on a new bouncer so we go there at least once a week so I can make goofy eyes at him. I don't think he's that into me but I am playing hard to get so it's kinda hard to tell.

My life is really too shallow and boring for a blog but what the hell, nobody actually had to read it.

The new plan of action is Halloween costumes and A's birthday which is November 5th.
A and I are being a devil and an angel for Halloween and are planning to shop for costume supplies tomorrow. I get to be the devil so am trying to come up with some sexy evil costume.

Well that's that, the big update I will try to be more exciting.

I've been gone a long time

I haven't posted anything new in forever I know.
There just hasn't been that much to say.
There might not be that much to say now but I am back anyways!
I missed you all too much to stay away.

Happy Canada Day

The new job is going well. The work is easy and all the people there are very friendly, very much different from the bank. It is so nice to get up in the morning to a job that I don't hate, it's made me into a better more cheerful person.

Other related news I saw the stupid young boy at a bar with his I guess new girlfriend. He grabbed her hand and dragged her off the patio where I was sitting and vanished. I guess she doesn't know about the whole pregnancy abortion thing,you think?

The airshow was in town last weekend and A and I made friends with some pilots. I would tell you all the sordid making out details but we were actually good girls so there isn't any dirt to tell.

The two kids and a dog internet guy has turned into one of those guys you just have to dump. I saw him on Thursday and was supposed to go out with him Sunday night but cancelled as I wasn't feeling well (hangover). I got this "is there anything wrong? How do you feel things are going with us" email. UGH. I haven't even kissed the guy with tongue yet and he's analyzing our "relationship", what is up with that? I am not all that in to him and this just put me over the edge into I don't think I really want to see you anymore territory.
I have another couple of weeks of getting used to the new job then I am assigned to the midnight shift, so I better enjoy my social life while I can.

Unemployment is fun

I went for a job interview today. Another call center that does roadside assistance just like the job I had before I worked at the bank. I guess I passed the test as they offered me the job on the spot. I start Monday. I was looking forward to a bit more time off for bad behavior but I guess I will just have to get fired from this job if I need more time off.

I have been living the fun life of the unemployed this week which includes: drinking too much, staying out too late and sleeping until noon. It was fun while it lasted back to the grindstone on Monday.

I did go out with my internet man last Thursday, we went for a walk in the park and then had a coupla beers. I did get in the kiss as I promised but it was a very quick chaste kinda one so I can't really say too much, other than I wasn't grossed out or anything so I guess he passes the first test.
We are planning a more intimate/romantic date when he comes back from vacation so I will have more make out details after this date I presume.

I went out drinking with a girlfriend on Monday and Tuesday and we did get hit on often and quite persistently so I guess either the working out is working or that I haven't lost my magical touch after all. On Monday night we met up with some guys in a band that I knew from the ole stripper days and went for drinks at their house after the bar. It was a lot of fun, there was guitar playing, singing and pot smoking, though I didn't participate in any of that (I am kinda lame like that) I had a great time. We didn't stop drinking until the sun came up so it was like a reminder of the old days. I don't think that I was quite so hung over in the good old days though, I guess old age is creeping up on me.

Working out is going pretty well, the staying up all night and being hung over does interfere with a good run as you can imagine but other than that I am trying to get some cardio (running or biking) and some weight liftng and core training in every other day.

Hopefully, as it is my last weekend of freedom, it will be a good one and I will have lots to talk about on Monday before I go off to work like a good girl.

Thanks to snowy for this.

"A hopeless and helpless dreamer, forever out of touch with reality, an Aquarius is ever lost in his own fantasy world.
He never returns money he borrows, for immediately upon borrowing it, he spends it and forgets about the debt. An Aquarius constantly breaks his promises, and hates nothing more than working.

People born under this sign love badmouthing and making fun of those that are close to them, but always behind their back.

An Aquarius is drawn to greasy junk food and cheap action novels, both of which he buys in untold quantities.

His vacation is usually spent holed up in some god-forsaken bar, since he has spent all his getaway money on one of his uncounted projects destined to make the world a better place for humanity"

Third date and other important info

The working out is going ok. I am up to 40 girly push ups and 20 regular ones and 100 ab crunches/sit ups a day.
My legs have been really sore so the running is not going as well. I have to work through the pain I guess. Just so you all know squats are not my friend.

I actually got on the ball and did my email resume last night. I mailed it around to a couple of places that aren't great. I'm waiting for someone to proof read it for me before I apply for the cool jobs. Last time I sent out 5 resumes only to discover a typo! Me thinks I'll be a little more careful this time.

I have a third date with Mr Two-kids tonight. I think I should really go for the kiss tonight to see if we have any attraction as I don't want to lead him on if there isn't any chemistry. Plus waiting any longer than 3 dates for a kiss is positively 1950's. I have had a good time on all of our dates and everything I'm just not sure I like him in a rip off your clothes and eat you up way. Maybe we'll find out tonight.

That's the update for now kiddies, I'm off to make myself beautiful and you know being a hag it takes some kinda time.
