Clueless Jerks

So, I have been seeing the Older guy for quite some time now. Well, when I saw him last Monday I invited him to go to a bar to see a concert with me and some of my friends. He enthusiastically agreed. Saturday rolls around and I call him in the afternoon and get a text response asking about what the plans are. He tells me he will come to the bar but wont be able to make dinner. No biggy I didn't tell him about the dinner until just then. So as evening rolls around I text him & let him know he is welcome to bring one of his male friends. No response. 10pm rolls around and I text him again asking him if he is going to come to the bar. No response. So, at that point my whole attitude is "screw him!" So, I had a fabulous evening with my friends and even meet a tall, handsome man that I had a great time with. Tall & blue eyed yum! .... and not 10 years older then me. Just sayin'

So, Sunday the older man finally contacts me. He sends me this lovely text "Hey did you want some of me" ugg! really?? wtf is wrong with you? I didn't respond.

So, today I get another text from the clueless idiot "What the heck is going on?" I so want to tell him off but don't want to give him the satisfaction that I even give a crap. So several hours later I respond with "What's up" which he responds with "Partied way too hard this weekend. Still kinda hurting." Can he be more of a jerk???? So, I just told him I had a fabulous weekend. Which I did, despite him!

Seriously, can men be more clueless? I am still convinced all the good men are already taken...

The Arrangement

I stumbled upon an interesting dating web site where sugar daddies/mommies find their sugar babies. It was intriguing. When you really think about it how nice would it be to have a simple "no strings attached" relationship where the expectations are already laid out in the beginning. You know exactly what to expect, plus you get money & gifts. What could be better I ask.

Worried about my big sis

My oldest sister is pregnant with her 7th baby. Her 5th sweet little girl. She started having debilitating headaches a couple weeks ago with blurred vision and spots. They checked the protein in her urine & blood pressure etc. All normal, ruling out pre-eclampsia. So, she insisted on a Neurology consult.

**Her hubby is in the Air Force and medical care is not very good. You have to be pretty pro-active. I know this from experience. I am thankful my military doctor went on leave while I was under his care. He very nearly killed me. His replacement was much more competent and realized my kidneys were failing. The normal protein level for a 24-hour urine collection is less than 150 milligrams per day. The first test the idiot Dr. ordered was in the 600's and he decided that was a mistake so he ordered it again. 2nd test was in the 800's and he. did. nothing. I also had extreme polyuria which is another indication of renal failure. He didn't even put the results in the right location for his replacement to find them. The 2nd Dr. only looked for them after I told him I already did the 24-hour urine test he was going to have me do again.**

Anyway, back to my sister. The neurologist found increased intercranial pressure and papilledema due to a brain tumor/clot or intercranial hypertension. He ordered an MRI be done immediately but she was unable to endure it due to the the noise from the MRI machine making her headache completly unbearable. So, yesterday they gave her Valium and they were able to get the MRI done. Still, waiting on the results.... best case scenario: intercranial hypertension. She will have to get spinal taps to remove excess fluid. 10% go blind. Preparing for the worst & hoping for the best. Even if the best isn't that great...

The return of Costco

A few months ago I got a call from Costco letting me know he would be in town in March. Well, needless to say I forgot all about him coming to Texas. (He is attending grad school at Cornell) Until, I got a message from him on Facebook asking if I still wanted to get together. Well, crap, sure... wait...
There is the complication of the older guy I am sorta dating. Or whatever it is we are doing. Should I still go out with Costco? I think he will take my mind off the whole situation with my older man. Which I really need.
I am at complete peace with fact that Costco and I have absolutely no future together. I have known that since our first date. He is just, well, really fun and did I mention he is pretty hot, nice ass and all. Although, I have not seen him in close to a year before he went & moved to New York. Maybe he let himself go... nah.

Mr. Smartypants

I went on a date last night with a guy that I have been emailing off and on for way too long. He is tall & good looking and we have had great conversations on the phone the last few days. It is refreshing to actually have things to talk about. Plus, he is a Liberal in this oh so large sea of conservatives known as Texas.

The date went well. Until... I didn't agree with him. He stood up and said (almost yelling mind you) "let me go really slow for you so you can understand it." all the while snapping his fingers in my face. and said "You following???" I was mortified, furious and shocked all at the same time! I felt like a little child being scolded.

He apologized profusely but I am not sure I am willing to forgive nor over look it. Seriously! What is wrong with men? Is it just the men my age? I am seriously ready to just say screw it and live out my life as a spinster. Which right now sounds kinda nice.

"I'm Not Your Girlfriend"

So, I have been sporadically dating the older man. He is sweet, cute and very lovable. He publicly & continually refers to me as his girlfriend. Introduces me as his girlfriend; The whole works. I find it quite endearing and confusing at the same time. I don't feel like his girlfriend. Aside from our once a week dates we never talk. I text & he'll text back maybe one or two times and it dies off. We share nothing going on in our day to day lives. We just go out once a week. In my world that does not a girlfriend make.
So, every time I hear him utter the words "Girlfriend" I want to scream a la Chowder "I'm not your girlfriend!" (Don't you just love Chowder?)
But my theory is, because men are just plain rotten, he is just trying to lay claim to me so I don't go out with other guys. But ya know what, I am not going to play that game! Time to go out on a nice, simple internet date to pull me away from this confusing situation before I get sucked into this whole girlfriend business.
