Tueday Dinner Date

morning weight: xxx lbs
Valentine's Day goal: xxx lbs
In the Reward Jar: $42

Who needs the cheesy canned Bachelor show when you have my dating life to watch instead? Honestly, I had to the change the channel at the gym when I saw the horsefaced girls he's chosen. Come on! Sorry, I'm just an indigo truthseeker.

So yesterday, you know, my sucky Monday? Well...boom, just like that, it didn't suck so much. Because I have a dinner date! Tonight! A Tuesday night dinner date! With the flirty guy just back from vacation. R, who needs a nickname. Perhaps he'll be Rawwwr after I meet him.

And I quote, last night, he said: "I want to meet you as soon as possible, because I can't stop thinking about you, and if we meet this week, then we can do something fun this weekend."

There was such a long pause on the phone, he thought we'd gotten disconnected. I'm sorry, a guy who plans ahead?

*blink* They exist?

That's almost as awesome to hear as Billy Crystal in WHMS saying, "When you meet someone you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

Taking a deep breath.
Taking the man at his word.
I will meet him.
Thai food.


I will not eat the entire plate of pad thai!
I will not eat the entire plate of pad thai!
I will not eat the entire plate of pad thai!

Ohhh....PS for my sweet niece (and anyone else who admits to being a reality show junkie), have you seen this show on MTV called The City? Those girls are so pretty and they remind me of my niece and they were even at the Gansesvoort Hotel in the episode last night. That was enough to bowl your old auntie right off the treadmill!

Okay, I'm crossing all my fingers and toes for you that this guy is not a flake, or a jerk, or... whatever. There ARE still some nice guys out there, so I'll be waiting impatiently to know if this one fills the bill!

Good luck! :-)

Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
