The Plot Sickens

So my allergies have been driving me to the brink of suicide, and I decided to stay in last night and just lie in misery with Kleenex shoved up my nostrils. Around eleven, I decided that maybe it was time to stop watching the first season of 24 I had downloaded and do something productive, so I went on Lavalife. And guess who was on? New guy! And guess what? He hadn't answered my e-mail!

This was my e-mail to him:

Wow, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend - am also glad to hear he'll be okay.

Things have been insanely busy for me as well - my mom called last night to make sure I was still alive, since I hadn't had a chance to talk to her since Easter. I've been working a lot of overtime hours to meet deadlines, and my final project was due this week for night school - I finally finished it last night.

How did the interview go? You're considering leaving Toronto?! I am shocked and appalled - I thought you love this is city as much as I do!

Good to hear the bronchitis is better - stopped drinking Pepsi and licking subway poles?


So I mumbled something along the lines of, "Motherfuckingstupidasshole," and continued my futile search for the proverbial "nice guy".

Suddenly my MSN pops up that I have a new e-mail from guess who? New Guy! I mumbled something along the lines of, "Oh it's not so fucking cool when you catch ME on Lava you motherfuckingstupidasshole," and opened the e-mail:

Hey you!

Yeah, it kinda sucked that he was hurt so much, but it looks like he's going to be ok. He's dinged up, that is for sure!

The interview was ok. Apparantly they were shocked that I am not fluent in French. I was shocked that they thought I was. It's running the advertising department of a large investment company. Looks cool, but we'll see.

As for leaving TO... not something I would be looking forward to. A lot of my friends are gone, so it makes me wonder whether I shouldn't be off too. Not sure how I did in the interview so it's probably all for not.

Yep, the bronchitis is better. Haven't had a pepsi or any other cola in a LONG time. My throat is still tender (I'm 100%, but the coughing irritated my throat) and I'm not sure the carbonation would feel all that good.

I feel bad that I haven't been very communicative!! If you're around Sunday I will try my best to give you a shout!

New Guy

Whatever. I figured I'd get back to him when I felt like it, refreshed the nostril plugs, and started the next episode of 24. My MSN went off. ARGH! I stopped 24 while yelling, "Who are you and what do you want? I have kleenex shoved up my nose and Jack Bauer is just about to shoot stuff!"

It was New Guy. Hmmmm. Apparently he REALLY didn't like the idea of me looking for other guys on Lava, because he NEVER came on MSN. He asked me how I was doing and we talked for a few minutes, and then he asked if he could call me, because he hated the MSN thing. I needed a smoke anyways, so I told him to go for it.

We talked for an hour and a half about everything from cartoons to my ongoing battle to see TOOL before I die.

At the end of the conversation, he asked if I would like to go to a movie with him sometime this week and I figured I had nothing to lose (and also no other potentials), so I agreed. He said he would call me early in the week and we would pick a night.

I hung up the phone, shook my head and realized I am still no closer to understanding the male species.

I can go to a movie with him any night but Thursday, because we all know what Thursday is - SPEED DATING NIGHT!
