astronomical odds

Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 1:47 am

so the fucking weirdest thing ever just happened. No really.

You may recall climber guy that i went out with last week? If you don’t go read some history and come back. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. All caught up now? Okay let’s go.

So I went on a date with this guy last week and I was pretty much convinced that he wasn’t going to call me. Which he didn’t actually, he sent me an email. So it turns out that he is actually meeting up with someone else from this okcupid site (sound familiar? yeah me too :) So he went on a date with her and yeah it’s my old friend Princess Valium.

What are the fucking odds? No seriously? The guy picks two chicks out of the okcupid herd and it’s me and my former very good friend PV [she’s the only woman that I KNOW on that site as it is]. Like weirdness. I still don’t care you understand, I just think it’s funny as fuck. Anyway I gave her a call and it turns out that she likes him a little so i’m going to do the gracious backing off thing because I truly don’t give a fuck. It was a nice date, he has a nice body on a climbing wall, the little accent is hot as hell but there is a vague sense of worry coming from the fact that he really likes to call you on habits he considers not healthy… and that’s kind of cool but at the same time I can see myself wanting to kill him for that fairly quickly. If I thought for a second that a real spark was there this would be a lot tougher.

Cool result? She and i are going to carefully not hang out full time but will meet up for drinks and fun on occasion while watching our personal mental wellness meters. Cool huh?

Speaking of okcupid… it was funny to hang out with someone who went to high school with okcupid guy and not say anything. I couldn’t really figure out what or how to say something. I mean like really ‘uh yeah site, so i asked out this guy that you’ve known since you were a kid but I’ve never met him [though i’m starting to wonder if we have and don’t know it]’ or… ‘so what was okcupid guy like in high school?’ or ‘did everyone at your high school speak french?’ (which I do also btw) etc. or… you know, badness.

So I didn’t say anything to site but i feel sorta strange. Like was it lying not to say something? This online thing is tres confusing.

I note that Pavlo’s CD is improving with listening. I love music that does that.

Okay that has to be enough talk of dating right? There must be something else to think about. I certainly didn’t mean to turn this into a *dating* blog! I know, I’ll answer email until I think of something else to rap about. :)

See I knew that would work. I just saw myself type the words “There isn’t much to tell that I didn’t already write out in my blog.”

Uh yeah.

This is the one complaint I’ve seen about blogging that’s actually relevant. That people who blog expect their friends/family/loved ones/total strangers to read their blog for news rather than actually talking to them. I’ve only been blogging on a regular basis for a little while but I’m already guilty of this one. I’ve been heard to say to my sister ‘did you read my blog?’ so I know what gossip she is and isn’t up on.

Now this is my sister. Why am I expecting her to read my news on an anonymous website? Why do I think that she is eagerly logging in to my blog to read the details of my life when she can just call me and have a conversation with me?

That’s ridiculous right?



  1. I don’t like a very large number of my family members, so I refrain from talking to them with any frequency. I think one of my brothers knows about my blog, but not any of the other siblings. or mom, for that matter. of the vast majority of my friends.

    anyway, I feel ya on the coincidence thing. the cosmos is a wonderfuly yet weird experience.

    i’ve given up on dating. waiting for any friend with family in the Philippines to hook me up with a relative who wants a green card and a seven-year marriage. I wish I was from one of those cultures with arranged marriages; it would make things a lot easier for me.

  2. I suppose I do use blogging as a way to avoid directly talking to my family, but if you know my family, you’d know why I do it that way….

  3. Well, I have two blogs. One is not anon; it’s purpose is to inform, notify, and share the family bull shit with family near and far… mostly far.

    I got tired of too many family members bitching that I never call them. I’m not a phone person…

    I was glad to have the blog, it saved my ass and alot of phone calls. Instead of complaints, I now hear “I love reading your blog, the kids are so cute.”

    As far as my other blog… well.
    Basically, it’s an outlet for me to unload my alter-uber-personal lifestyle, and an attempt to get women to exert a little more of their sensual side. Or atleast live it through me.

    Keep doing what you’re doing with PV and dude. Sounds like it’s on the right track. Especially if dude has a slightly irritating attribute.

  4. ok, climbing guy sounds like he could be uber hot and uber obnoxious with the picky shtuff. see how it pans out? though i’m guessing since you said you don’t give a fuck, you really don’t…which means on to bigger and better ;)

  5. yeah the hard part is to figure out how to let him down gently in a way that doesn’t make HER look like she’s all ‘please please can i have him’ (which she WAS NOT btw)

    the thing is that she already told him she won’t date him if he’s dating me too and i already told him i don’t give a fuck (can i when *I* have a date with someone else quite shortly?) [and also the aforementioned i don’t really care about the guy in the slightest] so *I* have to let him down in a way that doesn’t fuck it up for her.

    suggestions welcome!

    ps dzer baby your attitude about life makes me a little sad. i feel like maybe you’re just sitting back and letting it slide by. :(

    bubbles: I LOVE your naughty blog!

  6. sass … I’m just a bitter, jaded journalist. I had my shot and it didn’t work out … and I guess i’m just tired and don’t think too much is worth anything ….

    pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

  7. dzer what did you have your shot at that didn’t work out? Because so far 90% of the shit I’ve tried hasn’t worked out but it’s certainly been a positive experience in most cases…

    what if i WANT to pay attention?

  10. I will be waiting to hear the latest in the climber-dude saga…


    Hey, pass the popcorn please?

  11. hey what the fuck!

    I posted some stuff here.

    okay here’s the email i sent climberguy:

    “Hey climberguy;

    Here’s the thing dude… it seems like you’re pretty evenly into both PV and I but the difference is that I’m pretty into the guy that I asked out. Not that I don’t find you attractive cause I surely do but well… Now it could all come to naught and i’ll end up lonely and alone *sniffle* [*snicker*] but it sorta seems to me that if you like us both you should probably go after the one
    who isn’t into someone else too.

    Did that make any sense? Course if it doesn’t work out with her or whatever we could probably manage to take outselves
    climbing again or something.


    that seems like it would work but i’m not sure he’s agreeing with me…

  12. okay seriously that’s more anonymous comments than real ones today. I think i might have to disable anon posts but i REALLY don’t want to because i’ve had some great comments from anonymous folks.

  13. i can’t decide if that last one is spam or not… thoughts?

  15. It’s spam. I had one over the w/e that said “oh, I love your blog, we think alike. BTW, I have some deals on meds at“. I saw the same spam on another site, too, so.

    When in doubt, nuke the bastards.
