Quick Recap

I was sick all weekend. I had a migraine which still hasn't gone away--it's going on 3 days now. Well, it's mostly gone, but there are lingering throbs inside my skull. And nausea.

I also have nausea from the antibiotics I'm on. Why am I on antibiotics? I have Ass Abscess #3! Woo-hoo! Not. Did I tell you that Czarina is convinced it's an STD? Seriously, she won't let it go. I think she is saying it to make me feel bad about not being in the V Club anymore. Sort of a "See? This is what you get for giving up your virginity!" -- when, actually, she is being stubbornly ignorant of the fact that this is a staph infection that was originally contracted in the emergency room. It's not an STD at all. She refuses to believe me. Or the doctor, who told me there is no way it is an STD, but probably contracted through unwashed hands. Grrrr....mothers.

So I have felt like crap since Friday afternoon. My head hurts. My ass hurts. I want to barf. I'm going home to go to bed.

But before I do that, let me tell you a couple of cool things:

1. I am meeting with a mortgage guy today who says I have qualified for a below-market interest rate!!! I think it is a program from the State Housing Authority. Wish me luck. Pray I don't barf on him.

2. Speaking of barfing, I barfed this weekend when I was out. A bunch of my friends got together at J-Rich's house to watch the Carolina game (we beat Kentucky!) and then we went out afterwards. Even though I didn't feel good, I went out anyway. To try and ease the pain of my migraine, I popped two more Excedrins. This is a bad idea, and I thought it might be. Excedrin has aspirin in it, and if I take a 2nd dose in one day, it makes me barf. I thought I would be golden, since I had eaten, but not so much. So after that happened, I went home. [Note to self: Never, under any circumstances, is your tummy cool with a 2nd dose of Excedrin.]

3. But before I went home, I did give my number to Cop 2 (nicknamed this only to avoid confusion with my ex, The Cop). Cop 2 is the brother of JD, a guy pal of mine. Somehow, I had never met JD's brothers. Cop 2's really easy to talk to and a lot of fun. We talked on the phone last night for a while. He's taking me out on Wednesday after Sammy's dog class. Woo-hoo! Go me. I can get guys when I'm sick. Awesome. (I guess the bets are off on me not getting a date until December!)

4. So after I got sick and was leaving to go home, Cop 2's other brother (yes, there are three), the Quiet Man, was nice enough to walk me to my car--I really appreciated that, actually, because 5 Points isn't the safest part of town. Cop 2 thought I had already left, so he was actually talking to someone and didn't see me when the Quiet Man walked up to me and offered to walk me to my car. So I'm waiting to cross the street with Quiet Man, and he grabbed the tips of my fingers. Like a half-way hand holding. Weird. Awkward. Didn't know what to I just sorta squeezed back, made some quick, nervous small talk and then dropped his hand when we crossed the street. I don't know if he did it on purpose, or if he had accidentally brushed up against my hand and I misinterpreted things....we had talked for a little while, but it wasn't very flirty or anything...then again, he's the quiet one of the family. I don't think he knows I have a date with his brother this week! He did message me on myspace to see if I was feeling better, which I thought was very sweet. Interpretations, anyone? I can usually figure out male behavior, but this one is weird.

Sorry if this post is hard to understand. Like I said, I don't feel good. I'll try to be more coherent tomorrow.

P.S. JD and J-Rich also introduced me to Repo. Same crowd, different guy. Maybe I am making the rounds through their friends?? Is that bad??

Hope you are feeling better soon. Good luck at the mortage place. I think buying a house is my next big purchase. I am just getting tired of renting.

The Dummy said...

That wasn't an accident - the part about his feeble attempt to hold your hand. It was a halfway hold to see if you'd meet him halfway. Unfortunately, this probably would catch a lot of people off guard if there wasn't some previous chemistry to begin with.

I'm feeling chatty today, so I'm actually going to give you some relationship advice, despite swearing off that sort of thing. ;)

#1) The fingertip-hand-hold routine is a shy-guy version of an Approach. It gives him a reading based on your response. You squeezed. He's probably going to take that as an indicator of interest. The good news is, he'll probably hear about his borhter taking you out on Wednesday. See #2.

#2) Dating all the guys in one circle of friends is usually a bad idea. Most guys will talk about their women. About half of these guys who do talk will exaggerate their exploits. The primary downside to this is that it can raise certain expectations. The secondary downside is that you're going to start having guys comparing notes on you.

As for your mother... just fuck with her. Tell her, "You're right, Mom. I've actually not even been truthful with you about it it being an abcess. It's chlamydia, and I got it at a bukkake party, so I don't know which of the ten guys there gave it to me." If she doesn't stop riding your ass (no pun intended, but I'm going to snicker about it anyway) after that, you just need to trade her in for a different mother.

jonathan-- thanks! you really should look into it. it's overwhelming at first, but you get a ton of money back at tax time.

DD-- thanks for your interpretation....very interesting.

stuckey-- hmm. that's two guys in agreement there. and yeah, i will discourage any further advances. it will start to get weird if i keep making the rounds in the same circle. i don't want to be that girl. you crack me up w/the mother comment. i probably should just start taking it to the point of absurdity.
