Today a text came in from her.

Her: "Hey I'm free tonight after 7:30."

Me: "Oh? So what will you be doing then?"

Her: "Well I was hoping we'd go out to dinner."

Me: "I'm sorry, but I've already had plans made for this evening."

Her: "You were free a week ago."

Me: "That was a week ago."

Her: "Oh. Okay then."

*shrug*

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

**Edit at 6:35pm**

The drama begins.

On the way home she texted me that her roomie has kicked her and her daughter out of the house. She did find a place for her daughter to stay the night. I suggested she get a motel room. Not out of the hardness of my heart, but one should always have enough cash on hand for a hotel stay somewhere. (You never know when your house will be unable to be occupied for a night.)

Few points.
1. Her and her roommate both live with the RM's parents.
2. The RM's parents aren't currently home.
3. She doesn't pay rent.

Therefore, she has no legal recourse to stand on if he decides to kick her out for more than one night. I suppose child endangerment might come into it somehow, but I'm unclear on squatters rights in that regard in this state.

My bullshit tolerance meter is almost maxed out.

So I have to let this out before I explode this week.

You know, I've been texting almost nonstop with you, I suggest things we could do when we're both free. I say "You're free tonight, I'm free tonight how about I take you out for some food and I'll pay." you reply with "No thanks I'm going to go to bed." and then text me for another 5 hours..

No. You know what, done. I'll be your friend but potential match % is over.

If you don't want to eat fine, but to say you're going to sleep and then you keep texting me for 5 hours hits my "either you're not ready, or you're not interested" trigger.

Oh and FYI, that also means the flirting is over.

Yes, you and I will be having this conversation soon, I'd prefer face to face, but I highly doubt you'll make time for it.

I know, I know typically it should be Radiation, but AFAIK the Earthquake did not free the giant Radioactive worms that live under the Earth.

Mom told me after the bigger shock the other day, "If I start screaming, just take me to the ER because I probably won't stop."

This confused me for a while and then my brain hit upon why. My mother, is a bigger control freak than even *she* admits. She told me she didn't like the Earthquake because there was no warning.

This is true. Really I don't mind the ones we get around here, because I highly doubt we're going to have "the Big one" here. We're just going to burn. Really. That's how I feel will happen in this area. Fires.

So we talked about it for a while and it's because there's no warning, and there's nothing to be done, no cover to be taken (since we haven't mastered this flying thing yet.)

I'm not sure why it sort of shakes me to see my mom worried about Earthquakes. I guess it's because I have a "As it is, so shall it be." Approach to Mother Nature. I mean I know we can protect ourselves from it somewhat, and even predict when we might need to with some reasonable accuracy, but really the only thing that has shaken me is watching a control freak realize there's something she can't control.

There's nothing I can do for it either.

So the new modem is installed and after a call to Tier 2 support cox was unable to get it working.

I finally not only got *IT* connected got the wireless device connected as well.

After I see if it keeps connection I'll go about the process of reconnecting the gaming systems and my nook.

So earlier this week the woman I went on a date with and have exchanged a massive amount of texts with said two somethings that got me to wondering.

The first was I joked that she's being cheated on if she was expecting sex out of our dates. Her reply was "It's not cheating, we're not exclusive."

I have to admit that made my brain twitch abit since she went left field, but it did lead to a conversation about what her expectations are out of friends and/or possible future lovers.

The second was revealed during that conversation and that she's not ready for anything serious, just friendly flirting and casually seeing each other. (More on that in a second)

However, that made me review the reason I was persuing her.

I don't know. Am I coming off as looking for a serious relationship? AM I looking for a serious relationship? Can I be serious about that? What am I looking for? Why am I looking?

Can it really be called casual dating if you only go on one date every two months? Is what we're doing called dating at all? *shrug*

Just something else for my brainworms to make me neurotic about.

I was wondering how many people in the Occupy movement are going to wear Guy Fawks masks on Nov 5th.

So I woke up this morning to this gem in my OKCupid inbox.

"YOU LOOK LIKE A LITTLE BIT OF MICHAEL MOORE WHO IS MY FAVORITE FILM MAKER?
and where in OK city do u live?"

So first of all caps? Really?
Secondly you don't know if Mr. Moor is your favorite film maker or not, either way that's an insult to me since I really don't care for him all that much.
Third. You spell out every word (OK is alright since it's a valid abbreviation) except "you" that's just maddening to me.
Fourth, you actually started a sentence with the word "and" that is just wrong.

Let's change this so I'd respond.
If you'd said Kevin Smith, I'd have overlooked your bare bones profile and might have replied with something resembling interest. Caps I can forgive because I know that sometimes people don't notice it's on, and some people need caps in order to see the words. "You" on the other hand is just very damn lazy.

Rewritten.

"Hello, I wanted to let you know that you look like my favorite film director Kevin Smith, he's just so dreamy with his big beard and puppy-dog eyes. Do you wear trench coats by chance? I also live in the OK City area and was wondering what part of town you live on to see how easy it would be to suggest we go for coffee or a quick Mooby burger. I think I'd like to get to know you better. I'm sorry my profile isn't filled out more, but I'm both leery of putting too much out on the internet, and don't really have time to fill this out the way it should due to my busy employment. I hope you have a nice night."

I need coffee.

As a sidenote, a co-worker is also on OKCupid and viewed my profile, this week at work as the potential to be embarrassing.

Musing..

So for the last few weeks something has been happening across the nation and now across the world. It's being occupied. Apparently a bunch of people are protesting against a bunch of 1%ers.

Youngraven gave voice to the thoughts about this much better than I could so I won't even try.

I will state that I was wondering when something like this would happen. I also wondered when people were going to start being arrested.

Now I'm actually afraid that it's going to escalate. What happens if this becomes a full blown riot? Typically I'm pretty good about looking at patterns and seeing what will unfold. (Just found out through a quick google search that it's happened in Rome. Tear Gas, and violence.)

So what will happen if things turn that ugly over here? Will it be like the LA Riots in 1992? Will it be multi-city or just restricted to one?

I can see this actually spreading like wildfire if the right wind comes up. I'm afraid for the people that will be nearby and wanting peace being punished for the handful that might become violent. Mob mentality can be frightening, even more so if some jackholes decide that peacful protest just isn't enough to shake TPTB up.

I also would love to know what protest songs are being sung at these events, because there have to be protest songs.

"Mary Ellen Carter" is one the band decided would be sung for sure. Suddenly this song has a new meaning for me.

I have a lesson to go to and then I'll be meeting her for supper.

And her daughter.

If it goes well, Saturday morning we'll have a zoo date. (Yes, this time I actually got a time to meet her..9am...on a Saturday. Does anyone actually get up that early when there's not a faire

**EDIT**

Skipped supper for ice cream. I had a bananannana split. So I had fruit and veggies and dairy! I did good!

I also earned a theme song from her daughter "Kevin, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin, he's the smartest guy in the whole wide worrrrlllddddddddddd."

Not bad for a maraschino cherry or two.

She also didn't want me to go home and was very excited we would all three be going to the zoo Saturday, provided she passed her spelling test Friday.

As for the mother. She thinks I'm crazy cause I actually like her daughter.

This just in, her daughter is talking to her "grandmother" and calling me Kevvy.

I also found out I have a kid filter still firmly in place. This is a good thing.

I'm thinking though it went well.

It didn't happen.

I woke up Sunday morning, went over to the other house and did about 3 hours of yardwork. We texted each other; however, we had not set a time to meet at the zoo. Got home at 11am, around noon I fell asleep and woke up at 3pm.

We've exchanged over 2K text messages in the last 2 weeks. 2K...a person who hated texting, like me, has been texting like a madman.

Anyway, yesterday while we were performing at Rose States Global Oklahoma, I got a text saying "Hey I find myself kidless tonight, come hell or high water let's do something."

First thing I did was set a time and place. :D (Look I learned.)

So we met for dinner, for the first time. It was good. Her wingman kept overly texting her IMO and IHO. So she ignored him.

We might end up going to a movie or some sort of shared activity today.

You know I've been watching a wreck for a few years and I've noticed a trend.

There is only so many times that I can watch a wreck before I stop feeling horror and sadness. Then it starts to be funny. If it continues, it ceases to be funny and then I reach a point where I just don't give a damn.
The next stage I've found past that barrier, anger. I just get angry knowing the wreck is going to continue and there's nothing they will do to stop the fucking crash.
After that I just get pissed wondering why they won't take themselves out of the situation.

If the same thing keeps happening over and over and over and the only consistent part of the equation is YOU. Listen to the universe and the lesson it's trying to drill into your thick fucking head.

I love my family I really do, but odds bodkins..

Nervous..

So I have a date Sunday at the zoo with a single mother of a 6 year old.

I'm very perplexed about this new territory.

It's just a date. It will be what it will be.

So in my dream I was having a BBQ over at my grandmothers.

I was walking over there and a shadow enveloped me on the ground. I looked up and high overhead keeping pace with me was a Bald Eagle. It swooped around as I started worrying about where my cats were, since they had been walking with me. I ran to where it had grabbed about 5-7 pigeons.

I was at the BBQ then somehow. The meat was cooking and smelling so delicious when another large shadow passed over the backyard. Suddenly there was a slightly larger than Kestrel sized ..prey bird. It looked like an amalgam of a Red shoulder, a buzzard, a kestrel. It was light enough that the thermals of the tiny round grill were keeping it at bay. I knew if it grabbed the cooking meat it would be severely hurt. Since I didn't have a glove I had to take my chances.

Grabbing a gobbit of meat in my right hand I held my left out to it saying "hawk" "hawk" slowly and quietly over and over when a breeze blew it into a tree. Walking slowly and carefully over to it I held my left hand up and tapped my forearm with the right, slipping the meat into my left fist. It turned it's head to the left and then floated down and perched on me. It ate the meat, which is when I realized this hawk had teeth.

Since I'd never held this type of hawk I was unaware of what sort of personality it might have. It kept rubbing it's head against my cheek and I kept moving because I didn't want his teeth (I know right?) to grab my earlobe.

I then woke up. Yes, I was holding my left arm up like it had a hawk on it.

I give up on trying to get my entries to import. Feh.

I have so many things I want to do today, but I'd really rather sleep.

I did manage to find some music folders that I thought were lost. So that's good. I can't decide if I'm going to go to the OCTMA meeting (Oklahoma City, Traditional Music Association) or a Boru's Ghost concert or catch up on much much much needed sleep.

Went to bed at midnight last night and didn't get up until 10:30 am.

I've been fighting to keep my eyes open all day. Even with 10 cups of coffee.
