Sunshine and Sideshows

The fact that I haven't blogged since November is distressing - a lot has been going on since November. Well, not that much, but things have been going on since November.

I'm still working at my soul sucking job, getting chastised on a regular basis, which is just so awesome as grown up. And don't even get me started on school; going to school while working full-time is just plain insanity.

I finally left the nest and I now live in Old Town, Alexandria; I bought my own furniture because baby's all growns up and it's been pretty fabulous having a place to call my own (well mine and two girls that I split the ridiculous rent with). If I like you enough I might invite you to a housewarming party if I can ever get it on my friends calendars - you would think that they were all busy and fabulous and whatnot.

What has not changed at all is the 'men' that come in and out of my life. These 'men' are the antithesis of what I actually hope my future mate will be. They are flighty, strange and above all a hot mess with drama for days. So what's a girl to do? Where do young women who are not losers go to meet guys to have casual conversation and Miller Lites? Certainly not the places that I have been frequenting.

Many of my girlfriends have started internet dating. For some this has been a very positive experience, some have even ended up in relationships with these internet beaus. Of course that would never work for me, because when I did attempt internet dating I brought all the freakshows to the yard - per usual. One guy told me that he needed my address to mail me a ring because he wanted to marry me - marry me and chop me up into little pieces and save them in the freezer. Okay, he didn't say that last part, but COME ON.

So on this bright and sunshiney afternoon I will once again venture out to the regular places to meet young people in this thriving (i.e. vague) metropolis that I have been raised in. I will let all of you know what kind of creepers I manage to meet tonight.
