I'm back in College

So, on Wednesday last week, I finally went out with Bargain Betty. Unfortunately I learned over the weekend that even though he is 39, he acts like he is still in college. Apparently after meeting, he feels that it is necessary to call me at 2:30 am on Friday night. For good measure, even though we didn't talk at all on Saturday, at 2:36 am, he called again. WTF dude. I think that DC will want to rename him to Horney Bargain Betty.

Of course, I was completely irritated because he KNOWS that I work at Lowe's on the weekends and he KNOWS that I open. So, I find it completely rude that he calls at 2:30 in the morning. Of course, in true guy fashion, he could not figure out for the life of it why I was upset. I mean really? Finally, I just told him it was an issue of RESPECT. You don't call, text or do any of that nonsense for someone that you are interested in dating. Maybe I'm back at the drawing board.

Then there was Friday night. Friday night I went out with a new guy. Yes, I robbed the craddle. I met up with a 31 year old. I had a really nice time. We just hung out and talked. All I know is that time flew and next thing I knew it was 1:30. We didn't meet until after I got off at Lowe's so it wasn't something that started at 5. But, a nice time was had and hopefully I will see him again. Of course, I will have to wait until DC to name him. :)

Dear God

Shoot me now.

I am sitting in a Access 2007 Intermediate class today. I honestly think that I have slept through half the class. I feel like crap so it really doesn't help the boredom factor.

So in the first four hours of the class, we covered how to create a database and add tables to it. Honestly, WTF? I mean if that is the first four hours of Intermediate, what do they cover in the beginner class?

Since lunch, we have learned about relationships and joining tables. Oh wait, at 3 pm I finally learned something new. Dear God, shoot me now.

It only took 6 months

Yep, that is how long it took to meet one of the guys. You can see references to him here: Is the glass really half full?: A whole lot of.... or here Is the glass really half full?: Date like a man.... Needless to say, we haven't gotten very far as meeting. That being said, I still talk to him almost daily. Every morning he calls on his way into work, before 7 am. Yes, me the non-morning person, actually talks to someone on the phone before I have a Diet Coke in me. That there should say enough.

For the sake of simple, we met up at Chili's. Let's just say that I will refer to him as Bargain Betty. (DC hasn't had an input on this but she will probably agree, if now we rename.) In any event, apparently Chili's has a "Happy Hour" until 6. Since I wasn't going to get there before six, he went ahead and ordered two of the appetizers because they were almost half off and it would be scandalous to pay full price. I might have my work cut out for me.

Overall, I had a nice time. He was what his pictures showed; he wasn’t another 100 pounds more than the pictures he shared and was really nice. I can see a date two in the picture, so we will see.

Other than that, not a lot else to report. Currently in countdown mode until the football party arrives. In exactly one week – I will be on a 8 day vacation! Whoop!
