My Grandma's Phone Number

I had a small scare tonight. Not a bad scare, not even a scare by many people's standards. I was going through some papers in my never ending effort to straighten up my condo, and I found a copy of my grandma's phone list that she had kept by her phone. Of course, my name was on there. I enjoyed reading down through the list, and then I had a small start. I couldn't remember my grandma's number. Of course her number was not on that list. I had a feeling of anxiety. For some reason, I needed to remember that number. I can't call her anymore, but I need to know it. But how would I remember it? I could remember the area code and prefix of course, but it was the last four digits that slipped my mind. I would feel terrible if I couldn't remember it. For some reason, small details like that are important to me. Then I felt a sense of relief as I saw an old phone bill in the same pile of papers. Of course on that bill was one of the last phone calls I had made to my grandma in 2003, and there was her number. What a relief.

Reunion--A Reason to Lose Weight

I discovered I have another reason to lose weight quickly--a reunion. That word both thrills and dismays me. Thrilling because it is a reunion of my college newspaper, and boy were we cool people and I would love to see them again--but scary because I am not the cute chick they remember. Of course none of us are, but still. But I can be a little cuter by cutting calories and exercising IMMEDIATELY! I am starting today.

Maybe I'll Start Eating Better Tomorrow

I went to the grocery store this afternoon and got some good healthy food for a change. I bought vanilla low-fat yogurt, raspberries and blueberries, and granola cereal. I will mix up a concoction of this tomorrow. Yum, I can't wait. I need to eat better. Slacker. Oh by the way, I also bought some Little Debbies. But I will control myself.

Coffee Date With Chemistry Guy

I had coffee last night at Starbucks with Chemistry Guy. No chemistry, at least on my part. He has a neat job in criminal forensics, and we had a great coversation about it. I could listen to him all night talk about it. But unfortunately, no chemistry. When oh when is it going to happen? Soon, I am sure.

Body Beautiful: Eating Right on the Run

I promised myself that when I finished law school, I would start eating and sleeping right again. Well, I am sort of doing that. I am getting 6 hours of sleep a night instead of 5, and maybe I am eating better. I MUST DO BETTER! I am still staying up too late and falling asleep on the sofa, and then getting up in the middle of the night and moving to my bed. Old habits die hard. I am eating better, but not consistently. (And we won't even talk about exercising yet.) I have found one thing that helps on days that I eat on the run: V8 Infusion. It is a full day's worth of vegetables and fruit, with some antioxidants mixed in. It comes in a couple of fruit flavors. Who can beat this? Not me, when I don't have time to eat right.

Heard Back From One Chemistry Guy almost tripped me up. Like all other dating sites, when someone emails you through the site, they in turn email your private address to let you know. A nice looking man had indicated he was interested in me, and we went through the song and dance of answering all the questions and such. Then I never heard from him. I wondered if it was because our answers were pretty different. I don't mind that, but I wondered if he did. After all, we are supposed to be compatible, right? Well I just thought he was yet another one who didn't follow through. Well, lo and behold, I logged onto the site today, didn't see any indication I had gotten a new email, but clicked on the link for email anyway. And I found an email from him! Glad I looked. He had emailed almost a week ago. Maybe we will get a chance to meet.

Nothing From Notice Guy

I have heard nada from the guy on Chemistry who "noticed me." What does that mean anyway? I have never really known, and I can't find a good explanation on their website. It makes me not want to respond, however, the next time someone "notices" me on there. Why put yourself out there when the guy can't step up to the plate and you are not sure he is interested anyway?

Speaking of Chemistry

Some guy "noticed" me on I am not really sure what that means. That he likes my picture but is too hesitant to actually step up and say he is "interested" instead? That doesn't sound good, but hey, maybe he is hesitant. Who knows who he is? He doesn't have a photo up. His credentials sound good, so I indicated I was interested. I think I may know who he is by his description. He gave too much away, and it could only really be him. At least I think so. But if it is this guy, he is much older, much older than what he says he on his profile. Oh dear. Well maybe it is really someone else who sounds like him. Doubtful though.

I Need To Spiff Up My Chemistry Answers!

I need a tutorial for writing answers to questions on chemistry. com. Seriously. The last three guys who have contacted me have stalled out in the "question" phase. That is awful! I guess I sound too serious or something. Like I am talking with a friend rather than a love interest. That is all I can figure out. Should I be more flirtacious? Coy? Comehither? I would love hints from anyone who may have some feedback. I am just not sure it is me to do that. But I need to at leasst get to the meeting part!
