One thing about craigslist, it certainly does provide such beautiful fodder for the blog. Good news is that most of the initial respondees were pretty normal. I feel a bit bad for the folks who I reject out of hand for their lack of English or awful, awful writing. But not enough to stop. I weeded one gentleman out because he got impatient that I hadn't called him as soon as I got his phone number. I explained I was at work and couldn't take personal calls (not entirely true, but I'm not going to have that ackward first phone conversation while patient X is standing in the doorway wanting me to check on his Medi-Cal). He then sent me an e-mail asking me for my work number. Ick!
I'm trying to imagine why I got the one from a dad in Texas...although he did mention that his 21 year old son was in Canada, so maybe he thought someone in between would be convenient. I got asked to accompany someone on their work trip to DC next week (all expenses paid), sadly I had to decline. DC is beautiful this time of year. But my favorite was the one which simply said, "I want to eat you." Wow! And this just from a head shot.
Anyway, I have a dinner date with someone I've dubbed in my head, SlowTalker. I don't think it's going to go anywhere...there were lot's of strange pauses. I've already set up a lunch date at the end of next week with TwinMan (his designation - not mine). It's all a bit overwhelming though...and I'm reminded of why I get tired of it so quickly.
I'll be sure to keep you all posted.
On a side note, I also was pretty productive at work today. It's a miracle.
Okay, so I'm on to the Js...
Fit to Be Tied, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - She just rocks!
Spirit, Jewel - I really like this CD...it's a bit treacly (I think that's the right usage of the word), but sometimes that's just what you need.
Come Away With Me, Norah Jones - well, she's okay. I know there was a lot of hype over her in the past couple years...but I just think she's okay.
Greatest Hits, V. 1 & 2, Billy Joel - "Play us a song, you're the piano man!"
Greatest Hits, Janis Joplin - you knew it had to be there!
I know I'm missing some - bring it on!
