Did I Just Catch a Glimpse...

So it's March 27th and temperatures are still hovering around 43 degrees here, which is about 7 degrees below average, and when it actually gets to 50 degrees it rains. But today I think I caught my first glimpse of spring: I saw two women, at separate instances, wearing white pants on my way into work! Now there still aren't any leaves on the trees, and most lawns still look terrible, but nothing implies the change of seasons like a woman's wardrobe.

iPod Friday

Before I get into the music can I just tell you one of the most disgusting things a guy can see a woman do is pick her nose and eat the booger. This morning I was at a stop light and this woman, who seemed to be decently attractive was going at it... she was up in both nostrils. So I turned away, but like a bad accident I had to look back to see if she was still doing it. Then she did it again and made the move from nose to mouth...all of this while chatting on the phone...foul...time for music...

And That Makes Me Feel Good Because...

Lately females have been giving me these two compliments: "You're adorable!" and, "You're an incredible dancer." Idk how I feel about those compliments, Iactually think they are bass ackwards insults. Adorable is one step away from being called cute, and men don't like to be called cute. It's like being compared to a puppy...which is harmless. When you think about the superheroes from tv and movies were any of those guys cute? Superman was the Man of Steel, Lee Majors (the Fall Guy for you youngins) was a rugged stuntman, Batman was a rich orphan that basically raised himself, Jack Bauer is a counter terrorism agent which screams anything but cute, and in modern day movies there was nothing cute about Russell Crowe in Gladiator. So are these women saying I'd make a good house cat for them or something? Adorable enough to get his belly scratched but never allowed to sleep on the bed?

The incredible dancer thing is kind of weird too. It's like they can't fall back on anything else. I'm a smart guy, at least my undergrad degree and my in progress Masters degree somewhat confirm that. I'm successful, at least in comparison to the national average salary in this country. I can be funny at times. I mean is that what a woman really says when she's interested in a guy? Probably not, being the dancer as always makes me the safe guy...because I'm not the guy dancing just to grab an ass or to make out with a sloppy drunk chick. "He's fun, he likes to dance, he doesn't want to do filthy, dirty, unspeakable things to me." Just don't pop a woody...actually if that happened, I'd just flip it in my waistband because it hides it and feels awesome.

If I'm evaluating this right, what's the equivalent thing to say towards women? "You seem very smart" "You have good taste in shoes." "You're a handsome woman." Not that's I'm very going to say something of that nature to a female, I'm just an inquiring mind.

In Theory...

Men love big boobs...in theory...we see a girl with a huge rack and can't help but stare. But then logic sets in, and we start to think about what those boobs will look like without a bra...pretty sloppy huh? Big boobs are def a beacon for the male eye, but the hand can only handle so much. Luckily I have big hands...

iPod Friday

Damn I knew I should have posted iPod Friday from home...no rest for the weary at work...but I found just a few mins to hook it up...too bad two out of the three songs don't actually have videos...





Heard It All Before....

So for the umteenth time one of my female friends had "the talk" with me. This isn't the talk that says, we're just friends, trust me I never make moves to get to that point. "The talk" is them saying how they are ready to find a nice guy. A guy that does the little things. That they like to cook and clean, but they want a little something in return, like opening doors and cleaning off cars when it snows as a sign of appreciation. I used to sympathize with my friends saying "Damn right you deserve a good man." Blah blah blah...but after x amount of years hearing that, I've just gotten tired of it. Why? Because I do all that shit, and I don't ask for anything in return. I'm not saying I'm perfect, far from that...but every girl I know basically describe how I treat people, women or men, as what they want from a companion. Basic respect and courtesy seems to not exist anymore. But those that actually portray those traits get brushed aside and those that fake those traits for a few weeks and then dismiss them get recognized for being a remarkable man. Maybe because I'm single now and it just got to me...but jeez...I feel like that talk is just the run around...and tomorrow, those girls will be back with the guy they aid they would never date again..but I guess it just is what it is...

The Great Unpleasantness

So my boy EB was up this weekend to have a premature celebration of my birthday. Big ups to him for coming up from the other Commonwealth and dealing with my silly antics on Saturday night. Also much respect for the 16yr scotch he gave me as a present…anyway...one of our activities over the weekend was dinner with the Lady at an Italian restaurant. And for those of you that know me, the Olive Garden is not an Italian restaurant…I automatically lose respect for anyone that classifies it as that. So the three of us had dinner, chatted, laughed and overall had a good evening. After dropping the Lady back at her place, EB debriefs the night basically saying “Dude, you two are definitely still dating.” Now imo, when someone moves out of a jointly held apartment, that signals the end of a dating period. But his perspective of this is based on our interactions, and the fact that we still enjoy being in each other's company, and make time to do so. Let me put this out there, company does not equate to sex, quite the opposite. It’s literally having a meal, watching American Idol, feel free to lose respect for me on that one, and then she goes home. EB suggested the Lady and I need to have a “Great Unpleasantness.” This is something him and his wife went through several years ago. It’s a period of time, not set, where you cut off all communication with the ex and figure out if you can or cannot live without that person. Both sides of that coin cause great unpleasantness. If you cannot live without someone, your heart breaks under the pressure and you live in agony until you reconcile, and that’s if you reconcile at all. The other side is if you don’t need this person, and you have cut them out of your life, the unpleasant element is that you have realized you didn’t quite care about that person as much as originally believed. I’m trying to avoid the “Great Unpleasantness” simply because who needs self imposed anguish in their lives…but part of me can’t help but wonder if it is necessary to get a final determination on our relationship.

365 Days to Make Moves...

It’s really crazy how things and people change over a short period of time. Over the weekend the Lady moved out of the apt and now for the first time in my life, I’ve living alone. This time last year, I was 28 yeas old dreading turning 29, still living at home, and let me point out it was by choice, I knocked off all my credit card debt doing that, I was in my first semester as a full-time student in an MBA program and I was working part-time for my old company. A year later, I’m 29 and looking forward to turning 30, living alone, going to school part-time and working full-time at a new company. Everything that was stable back then has done a full 180. You’d think based on those changes I’d be a mess, but I’m good. As a pretty structured person I don’t take well to change, but I’ve learned that making changes, and even drastic ones, are not necessarily going to ruin a person’s flow…and more importantly change can happen a lot faster than expected. I used think it would take a lifetime to make an impactful change in myself, my way of life or my thinking, but the last year has gone by with the quickness and my life is vastly different.

The next question is "Has my life become significantly better?" because change should lead to progression. That I can’t answer, had I stayed a full-time student I would be finishing my MBA this May and would have potentially had more doors open up for me here and on the west coast. The other side of that is I’m going to have the degree regardless in a few months, and I’ve saved money on tuition and gained a lot of valuable experience in my new role. If I didn’t move out of my folks place, would the Lady and I still be together? Did living together cause the relationship to dissolve, or would we have been blinded to what seems like the truth for another year and potentially made a bad decision to take things to a higher level? And as I’ve written on here before, my original plan for my 30th birthday was to be alone, drink a bottle of scotch and cry while furiously masturbating….probably because I felt as if my life wasn’t as full or as accomplished as I thought it should be by 30. But now I’m happy, I’m glad I made it on this planet for 30 years. I’ve lived a rich life, experienced things people can only imagine. I have a great set of people surrounding me, and I look forward to what I can do with the next 30 years…but maybe I’m just disillusioned and just trying to fool myself into a false sense of accomplishment?

As recently as Monday, I used to think that the only way to feel like an adult was to be married, have a kid or own a house. I qualify as none of the above. But on Monday night I realized by not having those things, I’m actually acting more like an adult than I thought. Anybody can have a baby…it’s not that hard…anyone can get married, you don’t need a ceremony just go to a Justice of the Peace and pay $100. Home ownership is a little different, but looking at the market now and how many people have to sell their homes based off of incorrect forethought and budgeting, it probably wasn’t the best decision these people could make. I’m an adult for analyzing my situation, knowing exactly what I’m ready for and when to pull the trigger. There is such a thing as being overly cautious, but that’s not me, I just know the best way to handle my own business…and realizing that is the best change I have ever made in myself.
