the other shoe....

So.... as I gather from the comments to my last post, there are a fair amount of people wondering what happend to the girl I was dating...

Well, to make a long story short, it never really got off the ground. We kinda mutually agreed that we were not the right people for each other. She is a sorority girl, and I am definitely not a frat guy. Now we get to see if it gets awkward. We never bothered to have "the talk" to start the relationship, so we didn't really have "the talk" to end it. So, in a way, it's like it didn't happen. I hope we can stay friends. I'd hate to not get invited to poker night anymore.

So what else is new?

Vince is coming here for Grad School. He's sawing logs on my futon right now. He's in town looking for apartments. I'm trying to convince him to live near me. Possibly with me. As far as buying the house goes, I don't know if I'll be able to actually "buy" a house, as I'm not sure if I could get qualified for a large enough loan. Mom gave me a ball park estimate for what I could qualify for, and I'm not sure I'd want to live there. Who knows... I'll keep looking, but the places I will probably end up being able to afford will probably be in some pretty shady neighborhoods. If that's the case, I think I'll try to move into a house with Mike D. and possibly someone else somewhere here in Hyde Park.

Sarah C. came down during spring break. It was nice to see her again. We went to Trudy's and drank some Mexican martinis and had a right old time. I got to meet Matt, her boyfriend, a peruvian dude in some sort of Psych grad program (I think). Sarah kept saying that she didn't want to get married, and that everyone she knows who is married is miserable. Matt and I agreed, but I don't think Sarah quite believed herself :-P

Mandy is applying to grad schools, and she wants to go to Texas State, which is just a little south of here in San Marcos. She came down to visit it and stayed with me for a few days. Luckily she wasn't three sheets to the wind on bourbon again this time.... :-)

I house/dog sat for Mike a few weeks ago. I'm glad I don't have a puppy like Zeus. He's going to be great when he grows up and chills out, but he is a holy terror right now. You have to pay attention to him 100% of the time or he goes crazy.

I got to meet the creater of PhD comics (Piled Higher and Deeper) Jorge Cham. Very funny... and yet so true.... We went out after his talk (entitled "the power of procrastination") to 6th street and shot the bull. Fergal told some funny stories about the astronomy department and the observatory. I wouldn't be surprised if some of our antics make it into the strip.

Taxes suck.

Well, not so much if you're getting money back, but filling the forms out sucks just the same.

Alright, time for breakfast.

Sigh. Thank you for making me look pathetic ;) No really! The marriage thing ( for a person in my station in life ) is definitely not a good idea. Besides that, that Austin trip was definitely the most fun one I've had. It was good to see you having a good time...glad you're dating again ( and remember, no more emotionally void women ) Hope all is well and good luck with the house thing! ( I'm moving June 30 and will have to move home if I haven't found a job that doesn't suck. I am very scared.)
