Time....to Accessorize

It seems that the newest accessory this season is a companion. Both of my roomates now have gf's, one has had one steadily since I've known him in college, the other apparently has met a nice communications assistant at his job on the hill and has fashioned a girlfriend out of her. I Met her last night while I was watching the golden girls and having a bud light paired with a snickers bar as a reward for studying for the GRE's. I'm sure she didn't know what to make me with my hair looking like don king, only in some sweatpants all sprawled out and her in her work clothes.... eh I'm not too worried about it.

ANYWAYS, it seems that everyone is pairing off. Now did I miss the memo??? I think it must be a seasonal thing.

I thought I had a viable applicant to my program a couple weeks ago but it turns out upon further review of his application several integral flaws were discovered (the largest of which was that I was trying to like him because he was a nice guy not because I actually liked him), another of which he's a lot shorter than I am... I realize that at 6'2"/6'3" I'm taller than most men, but when you're trying to kiss someone that's like 5'6'"..... yeah it aint gonna happen, I therefore had to let him know that there would be no further review.

I guess it's time to get back in the game, I haven't gone out to a place where I could theoretically meet future applicants unless you count JR's at 2 in the morning or JR's after a kickball game when Chip and I were looking a hot mess..... yeah I don't count either of those instances either. So I guess it's time to dust off my dancing shoes and fight the urge to return time and time again to the wonderful dive bars that constitute adams morgan.

You might have better luck in Dupont over the Morg...

And.... trying to like someone because they're nice....hmmm.....you might have something there.

And....... to give myself some really bad karma I have to say in smug married tone: "Don't worry about it....it'll happen for you when you least expect it."

If you feel like you're "trying" to like someone, that's not a good sign, eh?

Even though I don't know you "Dale," I feel your pain. Everyone's coupled off and I, too, have to sachay my way back to Homoland (in Chicago, it's Boystown). I miss JRs though. Good times.

It'll happen when you least expect it....heinous....simply heinous

Brian: thanks, the third wheel game get's REAL old REAL fast!

Pairing off is very in for autumn.

Dale - I too missed the memo. Maybe next season?

I'm with you too Dale. :-(

I'm guilty of the late summer/ autumn pairing, I admit it.

PS, Katie Holmes is totes carrying Tom Cruise's demon scientology spawn.

SAVE KATIE HOLMES.

People get in relationships in the Fall so they have someone to snuggle with on the cold winter days. Then they break up in Spring so they can go and be free and do like the birds and bees...

Complacent Chase said...

Eloquently put, Mr. Bartender. You nailed it on the head, my friend!

Dop said...

My last bf started dating me in September and then broke up with me in March. Perhaps that all makes sense.

Dale said...

Interesting... I never thought of that... I'm always single in the summer and have something going on from like November-April.... interesting concept.
