It's heady, I tell thee, having people tell me I'm pretty and interesting. But why is this all happening now? Why all at once (or so it seems)? I feel a little like I'm 13, and I've got to tell you, there were parts of 13 that were sort of terrifying. At dinner tonight, I had to remind myself not to collapse into giggles. SlowTalker turns out to be really interesting despite some quirks...and on a positive note, is not interested in jumping into something committed. I believe he said that he wants to "play." Playing's good...it's what I feel like I've missed.
There is an interesting development in the past couple days - I've had responses from 2 different guys in their 20s. One was 23, so I couldn't in good conscience date someone who I, theoretically, could have parented. The other is 29...sort of just below the threshold of age that I would normally consider. And it sort of makes me wonder/worry that maybe he is a guy who wants an "older" woman to mother...uh, I mean, date him.
And I'm struggling with feelings about CollegeFriend in all this...yes, yes, I know that there isn't a commitment, but I have a hard time holding the idea that I might be the cause of pain to someone else in all this - either CollegeFriend or any of those people who I am meeting up with. I feel like this is a wholly selfish experience I'm having and it's making me feel guilty to be selfish. Blech!
...Okay, oh K!
Paradise in Me, K's Choice - they are delightfully morose...and sometimes damned funny.
Employment, Kaiser Chiefs - I loved them in concert...their recording needs some more time to grow on me. Although, I Predict a Riot translates beautifully!
Greatest Hits, Lenny Kravitz - Yummy! And at the same time, I'm reminded of the imortal words of the Streets, "You're fit, but my gosh, don't you know it!"
