Monday

openminded

All you blog-readers who find me hopelessly unwilling to be openminded about men should enjoy this: I have agreed to go out to dinner with an actual functionary of the TN Republican Party.

That's right; I have a DATE with a guy who makes a LIVING being a REPUBLICAN.

I did meet him at a good music show, so I know he likes good music at least ;-)

I am friends with some 'official' Republicans, and I like them. None of them are particularly fond of W, which helps a lot.
Good luck. Maybe you could do him a favor and not tell us about the date. You two may need a little privacy....

I never write about the good dates, in case you haven't noticed... and I have had some very fun ones in the past few months....

PS: Actually, I don't write about most of the bad ones either - not in very specific terms anyway.

I have dated several women who are writers and my theory is that if you don't want to get written about, never date a writer. Same with girls who paint. If you don't want to end up on a canvas, stay away from them. If you don't want to end up as the lyrics in a song, don't sleep with women who play guitar.

I like writers, so this is okay with me. I actually seek women writers out to hang out with.

I went out with Kate a few times last winter until I got the "let's just be friends" speech from her, and we are now friends so that is cool, but maybe I should be offended because she's never written a damn thing about me on the blog or in any magazine or newspaper stories I have been able to find. I guess I am not very memorable.

I struck out with her too which makes it irritating to read her blog when she does write about dates. I read her list of things she cannot stand and didn't see anything I did on it so I cannot figure out why she stopped returning my calls. I thought she just wasn't going to be dating at all which is what she told me. Not over the husband yet.

Why do you people continue to have anything to do with this bitch?

Because she's a very cute bitch.

Funny too. A little hard to figure out but worth the trouble.

I went out with Kate a few times this winter until I gave her the "let's just be friends" speech, and we are now friends so that is cool. She threatened to write a piece about me, but I don't think it materialized. I think I used to have a link as one of her "friends," but it's gone now. I'm not sure what I did to offend her. I've tried to do what I can to transform her into someone that men will like. You see, this is a woman who pretty much can't boil water, which obviously explains why she is divorced. Now, just yesterday she, as a result of instructions that I gave her, made pasta and asparagus with cream sauce (made with cream, butter, and, I'm told, Parmesan cheese not-from-a-can). Once she learns to make biscuits, she's sure to be able to land that Republican husband.

Jay, I have written something about you. It's in the editing process. I'll let you read it.

And you ATE my fabulous cream-sauce-with-asparagus pasta at my house yesterday and deemed it very good. I didn't just tell you about it.

If you transform me into someone who can land a Republican husband, then our let's just be friends pact will become void.

Jay:

PS: I took down your link in my friends section because, if you recall, I told you that we had to round you up a better photo. That looks nothing like you. But I've put it back up now.

Remember you promised to feed me tonight, so I'll take a new photo of you when I come over.

Forget Jimmy Buffet - dating a serious Republican is where I draw the line.
