Ok people, listen…I realize I shocked and awed you folks yesterday with my blatant cruelty at the “loser” girl. In my defense, she does not comprehend that she is seen in such a light by others. I know how I and some others perceive her but she is toiling along her merry way, clueless. Yesterday she saw me in my costume and did her customary giggle. I said something teasing like, “What? No costume!” to which I only received more giggling. Later that day I complimented her. Ok?! I complimented her! She was wearing a lovely shade of purple and I told her with absolutely no malice in my tone that she looked good in that color. And I meant it.
What I didn’t say was the sweater shape did absolutely nothing for her body type but let’s focus on the positive, shall we? I complimented her.
Besides, the fact that I made the L backwards when I took that photo makes me one step above “loser.” Thank goodness I still have good style. What ever would I have to fall back on? (Don’t answer that.)
It appears that the Wonder Twin powers activated to make what is (so far) seeming to be a match. Yes! Our matched friends stayed long after we all left the bar and he even walked her home. Promising! Of course, my lovely pal said something like, “I don’t want to get my hopes up or my heart broken.” to me while we were on the phone exchanging deets. Well, duh my friend. No one does but that’s the risk of love. Let’s not talk ourselves out of being present in the good right now by focusing on the impending break up, especially when you’ve technically not even had your first date yet. We women have just GOT to stop doing that crap.
I went to The Moore Theater last night to see Henry Rollins. Apparently third time is a charm with that place- the last two shows I saw there sucked. But not this one. Woah, not by a long shot. It was so good I am speechless. He spoke for over 3 hours. He made me laugh and made me think. I need to go to more shows like that. We need more people in this world like Henry.
