This week is going to be a little nutty. I'll be in Herndon all week for work (with the contractor who makes me want to cry). I'll drive to Herndon each morning, go from there to rowing practice, then come home and eat dinner. Then, Friday afternoon, I hop on a train to New Jersey to visit my brother and family. Since I'll be working (shocking!) and rowing almost every waking hour, I won't have much time to write. I have written ahead (trade secret!) so you can expect the posts to continue (if things go as planned), but I probably won't have time to respond to comments individually. I will read and appreciate and love comments, as usual.
I went out with friends to a new bar (Palace of Wonders) on Friday. Interesting place and good conversation. Because I was there with a blogger, meeting another blogger, when the other people in the group asked how I knew who I knew, the answer was, "We all have blogs." And then I had to tell a group of complete strangers that I had a blog and what it was about. I was embarrassed. The three guys I told then proceeded to harass me about it for the rest of the night.
I admitted that it was a challenge to write a blog about dating when I wasn't doing much dating. Kristin helpfully pointed out that I sometimes go into the archives.
One of them said, "So, you have a blog where you complain about guys?"
"No. No! I tell stories."
When I mentioned that sometimes I did an advice column thing on the blog, the same fellow said, "Why would they ask you for advice?"
I didn't know what to say to that. Again, Kristin saved me, "Jamy gives good advice. She considers several scenarios—it's good." What would I have done without her?
Saturday, I got up in time to go help out with the novice rowing class again. It was so incredibly hot that the very tiny bit of exercise I did had me soaking wet. Oh well.
After that, I had coffee, an afternoon party and errands. A fine day.
Sunday, I took it easy. Did some writing, ate some lunch and then went to play softball. It wasn't my greatest game ever, but I showed up, which is the point, I think.
And, now, it's time to sleep and get ready for a big day in Herndon tomorrow. Oh joy.
Grateful for: interesting questions.
Drop me a line.
