Body Work

No, I am not talking about plastic surgery! I had a bad wreck about two years ago and beat up my adorable auto. I found a good body shop, and my wittle car looks as good as new. When you have a wreck as bad as mine (thank goodness for seatbelts, or I might not be here right now) you want an expert to repair your car. You don't want to take a chance with your vehicle or your safety. Take it from me. I know! My car looks good as new, and I feel safe driving it.

More Dating

Where was I with my dating saga? Oh yes, the two dates in successive weekends. Well, the first one went bust when he told me he was developing a genuine connection with someone else he met online. OK.....I guess.

I liked him better than the second one, and thought I had more in common with him. But, I guess it is not in the cards.

The second one works in the same industry I do, so I thought that was good. But then, we barely talked about it, and he kept wanting to put down the industry that I was in before. That really ticked me off. I felt like I had to defend what I did previously, and I don't like that position.

But that is really OK. I don't think he has the same energy level I do. I am high energy. He doesn't seem to do a lot. And that is really OK too, but coupled with his conservativism, or at least what seems like his conservatism, it is not a good fit.

Good Cooking Aid

After I am done with law school, there are many activities I want to undertake again, including cooking. I am a pretty good cook, even though I am still pretty much a newbie. I love to cook for parties and for dinner parties, and of course there has been no time for that. When I am done with school, I am going to get my place back up to snuff, and then I am going to start entertaining again. I can't wait. It will be so much fun. I will need to find new recipes, or at least dig out my dusty old cookbooks. I will try to entertain fairly often like I used to. I will also need some new kitchen utensils and cookware. I also need to buy some things I have never had, such as a cooking thermometer and a digital kitchen scale. Things like that make cooking so much easier and precise! That link will take you to some great kitchen scales that come in every color imaginable--even purple and orange! And they are very reasonably priced.

Dating Update

So much has happened in the last week--Obama is the dem nominee, bar review is continuing, and I have had a couple of DZs, or date zeros.

Although, I am not sure much has changed there. I'll talk about the first one in this post and the other one in a later post.

I had high hopes for the first one. He works at the same large place that I used to (we did not know each other there) and we have much in common. We had a mix up in day--we discussed meeting both sat and sun, and when the conversation was over, I thought we were meeting on sun and he thought sat. So, he called me on sat, after he arrived at the restaurant, and we quickly realized our mistake. So we went the next day.

He was nice and I could see myself liking him. I would like to have him as a friend even if it didn't work out romantically. He picked up the check, walked me to my car, but then said something about wanting to talk on down the road after the bar exam. I thought that sounded like he wasn't interested. I decided to wait a week and then email him to see if he might want to meet for a glass of wine in the next couple of weeks, in my effort to be friends instead.

He wrote back and said not right now because he thinks he is making a connection with someone else he met online. My first reaction is that this is a rejection---after talking with someone about it, I see that it is wrong to see it as a rejection. He may in fact want to be friends. When it comes to dating, I tend to see things through a defeated filter when I don't need to. I am better than I used to be, but I still need to do some work in this area.
