is it Friday yet?

My web site has been freaking out and I have no idea why. I suppose I should probably get a more reliable web host. Perhaps someone who actually answers my phone calls & emails when I have problems, but I just got the cheapest guys possible. Probably not the wisest move on my part.

I’m really liking my new job so far. It’s been kind of exhausting, as I suppose transitions often are, but it’s fun. The people that I work with are all really nice, and I have a feeling that I’m going to like it there. So yay, that’s all happy.

In other news, I have a date tomorrow with Miata-boy that I am dreading because I don’t know how to tell him that I am just not feeling it for him. He’s a perfectly nice guy, there’s just no spark. I think it’s probably easiest to lie & say that things have started getting serious with someone else that I’ve been seeing — which is totally not true, but he knows that I’m dating a lot, and I think it might be a little less ego-bruising if it’s just timing/circumstance and not because I think he’s sort of dull. So I’m working on a way to bring that up. I’m almost wondering if I should tell him over the phone & just cancel the date. It’s not like I’m looking forward to it, I think movies are typically a bad date idea because it doesn’t allow for much interaction, and we don’t have the same taste in movies at all. He wants to go see that new Tom Hanks flick, and just the commercials make me nauseous. (Sorry, the whole Colonel Sanders thing does NOT look amusing to me whatsoever.) And for some reason I really want to see Dawn of the Dead — I don’t usually do horror flicks, but Ebert & Roeper gave it 2 thumbs up, and it’s got Mekhi Phifer in it, who’s just… yum. In any case, I think I need to just get some nerve & give this guy his walking papers.

And on the topic of me not being spineless, I actually broke down & called the former co-worker who asked me out on my last day. It’s been almost a week, and he hasn’t called. Ordinarily I would just blow that off, but I figured that if he was too shy to ask me out before the absolute last minute, he might be too shy to pick up the phone & call me. So I made the first move, which I hate doing. I got his voicemail. I left a very short message, and now it’s his turn. If he doesn’t call me back within the next couple of days, I guess I’ll write him off. We’ll see.

Oh, and my favorite quote of the day, which I got from Scott’s blog, and I am so stealing it:

“Yo momma’s so lost, Google can’t find her.”
