A Dateless Wonder

The life and times of a great Dateless Wonder.

often replicated, never duplicated...

So, yesterday I went to the James Brown concert @ Massey.
It was pretty cool, I can only hope to be as funky as James is when I'm his age. His dance moves are quite smooth, indeed.

I also found out that my dance moves are very similar to a back up singer's. It's very validating.

In other news, I think I'm officially crushing on this guy in my program. He's the only one who has caught my eye at all. He's in the IS stream.

I've been able to learn a lot about him. (Through Google, of course).
I've never spoken to him. (Of course.)
Although I did roll into him once with a rolly chair. He graciously accepted my apology. This incident occured pre-official crush.

Hmm. Maybe I should talk to him or something.
Argh. Argh.

I don't have anything to complain about...So...uhmn....Yeah.

You know what the greatest TV channel is?? The Food Network. It's amazing. The great thing about it is that you can tell yourself that it's educational, and because of that fact, spend as much time as you want watching it. Ahhhh.....Food porn.

So, as Junky mentioned, I've been MIA (again). I couldn't think of anything to write.

On Friday, I sat at my computer for about 10 hours trying to figure out how to create a relational database on Microsoft Access for an assignment. Argh. What a frustrating program. But, I finally completed it (for now). Woo hoo.
If that doesn't make sensational blogging, I don't know what does...

In other news, I saw a former undergraduate classmate in Robarts today. She's doing her MA in English...She looked unhappy and drained. She complained about the level of competitiveness within her program.
Yikes. I hate that type of thing, and I can't believe it exists in English. It was never there during the undergraduate years...I don't think.

And here I am in library school, where all the budding librarians are so helpful! One of the students even gave my friend a binder of her past assignment so that we'd have better idea of how to do ours....Talk about kindness!

That's it for now.

So, I'm back in happy single mode, where peace of mind reigns supreme, despite Saturday's reintroduction to the world of available men.

Junky, my current blog-muse, brought up the question of fixation recently...
And I'm wondering whether men fixate to the same degree females tend to...
That is, do men fixate and obsess over random women they don't know, if the woman, for some reason, proves to be intriguing....?

woe is me

Junky was recently complaining about one of her group members, and I am suffering from a similar problem.

An individual in one of my groups is just so impossible. He's pretentious, and throws around phrases such as "everything is so Byzantine." And generally, fails to understand anything we try to communicate to him, and is completely uncompromising.

Why did he not leave our group when we gave him the opportunity? Why? Why? Why?

In other news, today when I was tutoring N. I gave him a quick lesson on Sierra's Laura Bow 2: The Dagger of Amon Ra.

I love that game so much! And N. (as usual) was such a great listener. I was describing the game and acting out scenes in between the spelling tests and explanations of indirect and direct objects.

I have to do some essay writing now. Poo.

i'm baaaaaaaack (maybe)

Well, I have something semi-interesting to post about, so I thought I'd give it a whirl again. I don't know if posting will turn into a habit, but I'll admit, I do miss writing (to a certain extent).

So here goes...

Yesterday night, my best friend and I went up to Richmond Hill to go to some sports bar. It was one of her friend's birthday.

Now, since my masters program hasn't produced any interesting men (they're all quite older), there have been no crushes in the last little while...and I've recently been in an okay place where I'm thinking...Who cares...No bother...No rush...

Alas, alas, all was ruined when we went to the sports bar. First of all, we were suddenly approached in the line (Aside--WTF? Why was there a line-up for a sports bar in Richmond Hill?! Power hungry security guards, that's why!) by a guy I had thought was quite attractive when we initially line-up...Unfortunately, and I don't mean to be superficial, but whatever, he had this really odd high-pitched sort of boy-like voice.

Anyway, he was asking us all sorts of bizarre questions, including "When's your birthday?" which led to him discussing our signs. After I asked him his sign and he said Pisces, he said something horrific like, "I'll bet you have plenty of ex-boyfriends who are Pisceses." What on earth does that mean?

Anyway (again), when we got into the bar, one of the men sitting at our table had to be one of the hottest looking mixed individuals I have ever seen. He was even studying to become a primary school teacher...How do you like that?

I thought I'd have more to share, and something more interesting to write, but that's about it. Perhaps more will to occur to me in time. I did come to one conclusion though, it's really nice to be around nice guys...And given that I'm usually around no guys, going to this sports bar reignited my "I wanna boyfriend" thoughts, and squelched my "I'm inna good place" thoughts.

That sucks, because the next time I'll be seeing a bunch of nice guys will be...like...Never.
