so, if it hasn't become obvious yet, i'm actually in the military. i feel really nervous revealing anything else besides that as i do talk about a lot of other people in the military (mostly guys, ha!) on this blog, but it's kind of pertinent given that it explains why i don't update very often.
that being said, we leave very, very soon for a seven month deployment!! i am not really looking forward to it, except that it will be a great way to save money. it'll also help calm down the boy situation (hopefully. after seven months of "water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink" i may actually be even more boy crazy then i already am) and give me a chance to get really fit and get geared up to get some major accomplishments in at work. especially since my good friend joy (who's also a coworker and was previously classified as my cubicle-mate) and i have decided to start rewarding ourselves for major work accomplishments with things from tiffany. i'm going to start very small, because the first qualification i'm going to get isn't that big of a deal, but the Elsa Peretti Diamonds by the Yard aquamarine bracelet or the Tiffany Keys Heart key charm (so Kappa!! it's even blue!) are both more initiative then just the idea of getting qualified.
while i was at school i did meet two 'potential future husbands' (henceforth PFH's). the first is really, really, really cute and so well built (6'4, enormous muscles, tan, superwhite teeth) that girls literally poked each other to look at him when we'd go places together. i didn't have to spend a dime whenever we hung out, he always made me feel like the prettiest person in the room, and he didn't mind watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey with me. he was an absolute doll and just the sweetest thing, but a little too...questionable. i'm talking straight up, is he gay, is there potential that he might just be that great because he's gay, etc...now the thing is i know for a fact that he's not gay, but that doesn't mean he's not bi, you know? which is all fine and dandy but does cross him off the PFH list. i've been back from school for a month and a half now, he lives on the east coast, and while he's still calling, texting and emailing (he wanted me to visit before we went on deployment) i'm kind of, sort of..totally over it.
other PFH i met in a cab (like one of those rideshare/shuttle ones) on the way to the airport and we talked for a solid hour in the cab (i'm sure everyone else was pleased) and then sat at TGI Fridays at the airport for another couple of hours before our flights. he was just moving to SD and so i said i'd show him around when i got home. he is a supertall (point #1!!) dentist (point #2!!) who likes to party (point #3!!) so i thought maybe this was serendipity (oh, how that's failed miserably before). well, the one night we both had free i was baking cookies for a bake sale the next day, so i said i couldn't do dinner or a nightcap but he was welcome to come over and help me bake cookies. He did, but after two beers he decided that it was time to get down to business!! i'm not talking, "i know we just met and this is in reality our first time hanging out but can i kiss you?" but instead "come sit on my lap while i try my hardest to take your shirt off and maybe we should go to the bedroom"!!!! i was like WOAH. WOAH. WOAH. this isn't college anymore, buddy! i'm not impressed by the fact that you were varsity basketball and everyone knew your name...this is SAN. DIEGO. there are a million more of you and there always will be and the fact that you invested a solid hour and twenty minutes of your time does not mean that your "investment" will pay off! i finally told him that absolutely nothing was going to happen and i had to be up early tomorrow morning, so he could call me when i get back from deployment but i don't really see us hanging out again before then. MEN! WTF!
annnd i think that's all i have to say..oh ya! i'm having a bar crawl for my birthday and everyone is going to dress preppy so i can't wait to post pictures!! i only have a few more weekends in town before i head off for the big D, so hopefully i'll be able to make them count :)
