This and That

I have been blog MIA for the last little bit, and the real life peeps who read this are not letting me forget it!

So here it is, a life update:

Dating… well I am not but at the same time I have been on about 3 or so dates this month and of course 3 or so different men. Some new, some not. Again, I am not dating, just to make this clear. I am not actively out there in the trenches, but some things cannot be avoided.
My first date, as sweet as it was, was with a guy I had dated Feb to April. We ‘reconnected’ but it turned out the man had a girlfriend the whole time. That explains his less than perfect ‘attendance’ record. I found out via Facebook like a high school kid. I never add men to FB or try to dig up things on them. From now on I am full blown investigator! I don’t want an innocent face to fool me again. How does it go: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.

The second date is with this guy that is scared to make any moves. So I just enjoy watching him struggle. In my opinion, if you want something you should go and get it. Don’t have the guts to do it, ha! I will have fun with it. And I also saved $50 on a cab back from the airport, because he picked me up. I know, I am bad. But $50!

And that’s all I am saying on the dating front.

My road trip to NYC is now booked! My coworker is moving there to get her MBA at Columbia and the two of us are driving her and her worldly possessions to the City that Never Sleeps. I scored my return ticket for $110 USD from Delta, which with the favourable exchange rate is even cheaper! The rental car on the way there is $150. We are staying at her new digs, so it will be free! It’s going to be a phenomenal and super cheap trip.

I am super excited that after a crazy IKEA midnight sale experience, I scored the dresser I wanted for $89 original price $299!!! I am beyond excited for this. It comes out of my $80/month spend on whatever budget! Now I have to figure out a way to get the boxes up to my place and then put it together. Eeek!

In work news, I got a surprise raise and was told that in my level I rank in the top 10%! That's pretty major! I didn't expect it at all and it made me feel pretty smug!
