S-A-TUR-DAY Night!

Started the night off with the Rock 'N Roller Derby concert/derby bout. Saw a man in a Tuxedo Speedo... for those times you want to wear a speedo but need to be classy. I can't forget the cowboy boots either.

Went to Rock Lobster... hot bassist saw me in the crowd and tried to tell me something. I couldn't hear him nor could I read his lips. Danced and sang my booty off! During the break, we beelined to the bathroom. No paper towels. Ugh so annoying. Came out trying not to dry my hands on my skirt. Hot Bassist came out of some hallway and caught me walking all cautiously. He smiled/giggled at me and we went to the bar. He went inside, made a loop and then came back and talked to us. The convo went a little something like this... Him- Hey! I was trying to tell you inside that we aren't playing Blue Martini anymore."(oh my god he's talking to me). (Stay calm. He's just talking.) (His eyes are so pretty.) (Snap out of it, you have to answer him) Me- I figured it out when I was checking to see if you were playing Blue Martini for my birthday. Him- When is it? Me- On a Thursday. Him- Yeah, but when. Me- Oh, Oct. 13th. Him- We'll be at the Canyon Club. Me-I'm probably going to make it but it's a school night. Him- My sister's a teacher and she's way older than you. If she can hang you can too! Me- Yeah, we'll be there. Then I confessed to him how long I've been going to his concerts.... 6 years.... more small talk. Then he headed back to get ready for the next set.

During the sets we made eye contact periodically. Before the first set ended they played Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and all these drunk chicks bum rushed the stage. I opted to stay in the crowd. He fell back to let them have room to dance. I have a crush on him, yes. Girls were all around him and it didn't bother me. I could have jumped on stage and danced on him, but that's not my style. I don't want to be one of the girls that rubs on his legs while he's playing or lust over him because he's in a band. It seems to work because he talks to me. Slow and steady wins the race. :)

Poker I hardly knew her!

Last night I went with Fanibanani to poker at a dive bar. It was one of her friend's birthdays and she didn't want to go alone. It was amusing people watching, a lot of characters in that bar. Bartender did the "don't I know you from somewhere?" line... he was weird needless to say. The highlight of the night: My other friend's baby daddy started hitting on Fanibanani and didn't remember who I was or what I know about him. *Evil laugh* He's a douche to put it simply. Maybe he's changed but any man that gets his wife passed out drunk and then inserts things into her vagina and takes pictures of it and has one of his friends help him... is a douche in my book.

Intolerant to Intolerance

Last night I went to a friend's house for a bbq. His nephew showed up after playing softball and we were all hanging out. Everything was fine and dandy until the racial slurs started rolling off his tongue like it was the ABC's. I know for a fact this guy has friends that are of different races... yet he's still dropping the words like it's nothing. I couldn't take it anymore. I told him that those words are offensive and to please stop. No one ever tells this guy no...or to stop. He kept going trying to prove his word choice but it was just making him look slimier and slimier. I just told him to stop it and not say it. I was done with it. He shut up for the rest of the night. I'm some what shocked how racist people can be and not think they are racist.

I grew a set of balls last night... momentarily... and figuratively for that matter. I actually walked up to "Hot Bassist" and talked to him! I asked him why they don't play an 80's Aerosmith. He said they are actually going to start. They are in the process of learning Dude Looks Like a Lady and Livin' on the Edge (even though it's 90's). The highlight, I stood close enough to him to touch my arm to his. My friend Brooks knows him from college. He used to call "Hot Bassist" to set up gigs for his fraternity in college. "Hot Bassist" came to our table to say hi to Brooks. I think last week, was a fluke. I think he was just being nice. But at least I've talked to him. It's a start....

The other highlight of the night that was pee your pants funny. Was the cougar that kept trying to get the guys to dance. She focused in on Craig, since I grabbed Brooks' arm. Had to take one for the team. Oh darn! She was a stage 5 clinger...she kinda looked like a female version of the "The Twins" in Matrix Reloaded minus the dreadlocks...ROTFLMFAO!

Shock and Awe

Haven't written for awhile..... brief synopsis.... it's summer break... I've lost ten pounds. Went to England to visit my brother....Stonehenge...Big Ben....Land's End...Bournemouth....Oxford....

Last night: The weirdest thing happened. We go to Rock Lobster as usual. Band is awesome. First set down. Break. Good times are had. I always have the delusion that the bassist is looking at me. I like to think he's making eyes at me. Second set down. Break. I go to the bathroom during the break, on my way back I was going to go up to the bassist and ask him a few questions about another band that he is in. Mainly, why don't they play 80's Aerosmith, like Love in an Elevator, Rag Doll, Janie's Got a Gun. Anyways, on my way back I see my friend Sarah talking to "Hot Bassist". I beeline back to the booth. She heads back, "Hot Bassist" is right behind her. He wants to meet her teacher friends. We go around introducing ourselves, I tell him my name is Pickle, since it would obviously make an impression. He asks where we teach, what we do. Of course it's loud so Gator has to repeat everything I say, which makes it quite funny. He starts asking where I teach, where it's located, what my last name is.... doesn't ask anyone else those questions. My heart is practically beating outside of my chest. He says thanks for coming out and then heads back to the stage. Last set starts, Gator and Sarah hit the dance floor. Second song gets ready to start... "Hot Bassist" says "What no Pickle?" and points to the dance floor. He called me out... everyone looked at me, I was sooo embarassed.... let's just say my face matched the color of my hair. I sat there for the song and sang along (♪Relax, don't do it...) I went out to the next song, don't remember the next songs, stood there, kinda danced, mainly hid behind people... This has never happened to me, not even in my most deluded rom com fantasies. Is he really flirting with me? He's attracted to me? ME? I've never been looked at like that, I've always been the friend of the girl that the guy is going after. Is he really flirting with me or am I just a deluded girl, on the brink of 30?

One week down...

So far so good, it's been one week and I've been to the gym everyday that I had planned (M-F). I weighed in yesterday at 207.0lbs. We weigh in for the Biggest Loser at work in a little less than a month. If I can keep this up, I'll be doing just dandy!!!

A New Beginning

Fact: I am 5'11" and 210.6 lbs. Yikes! This is the heaviest I have ever been. Apparently I don't look bad at this weight, because I'm tall (or so people tell me). I feel bad at this weight. It's time to trim down. New Year's Resolution #1: Work out Monday-Friday. 20-30 Minutes Jogging or on the elliptical plus weights!

Fact: I dine out more than I dine in. This could be part of what's made me 210.6 lbs. Also, due to the fact that I don't really know how to cook. I can bake like no other but cooking is a little more difficult for me. New Year's Resolution #2: Only dine out a maximum of 10 times a month (120 times for the year). This should also save me major dough as well!

Fact: I am single. I have been single for over two years now. I am now ready to date again. New Year's Resolution #3: Go on at least one date a month.

Fact: I have done nothing to further my education, well aside from continuing education courses. New Year's Resolution #4: Sign up for at least two college classes this year. Be them in person or online.

Fact: I moved into my house over a year and a half ago. I still haven't unpacked everything. New Year's Resolution #5: Finally MOVE IN to my house and unpack all the boxes!

Well that's the five I think I can handle. In a month from now lets see how well I have done! :)
