No Pants December: Day 19

It warmed up a bit since yesterday’s deep chill but I spent most of my day indoors anyway. I was still mopping up after Saturday’s soiree (and doing dishes) and I made it downstairs to the gym. But tonight I’m headed out to see my friend Martin Dockery’s The Holy Land Experience at the Kraine Theater. No sense in gettin’ too fancy if I’ll only be sitting in the dark (and only walking one city block). Right?

But I want to be semi-festive so I just slipped on a new pair of tights from Joyce Leslie. They were on sale, two pairs for $15; the other pair is black leggings. These tights are bright red with a label that said “Very soft inside.” They weren’t kidding! These tights are lined in fleece! They feel as yummy as my Cashmina sheets! I wore the (same ol’) red shirt (at least it was clean), my black and white swirly skirt and ballet flats. I’ll only be out for two hours so you can bet I’ll be wearing most of the same stuff tomorrow! Woot!

Really Shiny!

Today I’m finally feeling the cold I’ve been fighting off. I ran around a lot with a hangover from last night’s soiree. I kinda can’t believe I’ve been able to stay healthy this far, given all the partying and the running around! Over the past week, I’ve had two house guests and SantaConned seven miles with thousands of other Santas. I’ve rock ‘n’ rolled and museumed, entertained and been entertained. I’ve visited my cousin in her new apartment (gorgeous and homey!), hung out with my sister and her kids and my cousin-from-the-other-side, his wife, his daughter and her boyfriend. Tea at Lady Mendl’s for 11. Whew!

I’ve even signed onto yet another dating site. Nerve Dating is in “beta” and I’m already on board. They were the hot spot back in the day, happy hook ups long before Match.com was matching or eHarmony was eHarmonizing. I don’t know why they got out of the game but they’re back in now and I’m in, too. Thus far I’ve fielded flirtations from a 58-year-old who’s about as appealing as strep throat and a 31-year-old who’s cute but, well, young. I’m still hoping there’s one guy out there close to my age who doesn’t look 100, isn’t interested in 20-somethings and is up for falling in love with someone like…me. In the meantime, I leave you with my latest hilarity from OKCupid:

hi honey how are you.im young man but i love old woman. if you have time for some fun. im ready now. just tell me baby

My response:

Do you speak English? If you’re interested in older women you shouldn’t call them old. It’s offensive. And I’m not interested in men that young! Have fun!

And his to mine:

😦 my english is to bad im new this country 😦 
im sorry babe im totally fuck it up 😦 
can i compensate this mistake 😦 
you are really shiny im sorry again and again

I could NOT stop laughing! I’m shiny? Shiny! That’s gonna be my new word!
