The Non-Date

Ok.  Here we go again. This is the main post recreated.

It is actually about yesterday and requires a bit of background.

Boyfriend and I decided to date exclusively rather early on in our relationship.  I can’t remember if he went on any dates after we met, but I had only one date: the one with the Nerd.   My decision to date exclusively went as follows:

  1. I’m a bit burnt out on all these energy draining first dates so I don’t intend to go on any other dates, and
  2. I like Boyfriend enough to keep seeing him.

Now, let me make two things perfectly clear:

  1. I didn’t pressure Boyfriend to do the same–he initiated all of the early conversations about the relationship and I also told him that he needed to do what he felt was right.  If he wasn’t ready to stop dating other women, then he shouldn’t stop.  I told home that I hoped he would choose me, but I want to be with someone who wants to be with me and sometimes dating other people helps you to figure that out.
  2. I didn’t settle for Boyfriend. If I ever stop enjoying things on balance, I’ll end it and spend more times with the cats.


Poor neglected creatures.

I am alive

I know, it’s been a while.  Too much has been going on in my real life that isn’t blog worthy, so I took a hiatus.  But, here I am.

Anyways, travels with Boyfriend went quite well.  They upgraded us to a beautiful suite. I convinced him to take a picture with me and the [somewhat creepy] Easter bunny.  He then allowed me to post it on Facebook.  And we mainly chillaxed.

New Goals (Updated)

My personal trainer (who is one of my favorite people in the world–couldn’t imagine feeling that way only a year ago) tagged me on a post of the following video:

The cat massage lady is my hero, idol and a universal inspiration for all cat ladies everywhere.

I don’t know why the real cat is sometimes replaced with a toy tiger, but it adds so much value to the video.


UPDATE:  You can buy cat and dog massage videos on  

According to the website, Betty White is a big fan!!



I am having a bumpy start to the work day.  Anways, I lol’d at this text exchange.  Why would you send anyone to the store with this list:

I don’t blame the guy for being confused.  What is “Light bright” lipstick?

I really laughed at his response:

Kudos to the guy for trying to figure it out (and for calling her “My Beautiful Sunshine” in his contacts).
