Greetings Loved Ones

I'm distracting myself from food. I'm hungry. I don't think you really value food until you submit yourself to a stupid weight loss competition, and food is cut from your life. So let's chat until I can officially go to lunch, and enjoy my fat free no taste salad.

Saturday Pistol Pete and I met for a quick lunch. We had pizza. It was so good. The pizza was loaded with chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, goat cheese, and garlic. Oh, and it was on hand tossed crust with the perfect ratio of cheese/sauce. WHAT! If I can't eat the food, I'm going to describe it in great detail. Get over it!

Back to the date...

First off, I gave Pistol Pete a point because he picked a good eating establishment. I mean, did you read about the pizza? However, I took the point away because he had to come straight from an event, that was held outdoors. You could tell he'd been outside, not that he was gross, but you could tell he'd been in 100 degree temps. I feel like I deserve more than to be squeezed in someone's schedule. But being the rational girl I am, I quickly gave him his point back. Blogger World, I show up to events, dates, church, meetings, and work sweaty all the time. Also, I'm guilty of squeezing people in my schedule almost always. He is a guy after my own heart!

The rest of the lunch Pistol Pete scored more points. The conversation was good, never boring, and never too quiet for comfort. He made a few comments I agreed with 100%. All good signs.

Despite the OU/OSU differences I believe we have many things in common. I haven't asked if he likes to travel. I'm scared he's going to tell me he doesn't have a passport and he's never seen anything outside of OKC.

There are no set plans of a second date. He said maybe we could get together this week. As you know, today is Tuesday. He's running out of days for the week. But I feel pretty hopeful for a second date, so I'm not too worried.

hummm... I don't know what to make of your lunch date. He should have called or emailed to get a follow up already (I think!)

shoot, DH had set our second date the night we went on our first (he invited me to go to an amusement park with him.) we ended up seeing each other two times before the amusement park date though. I guess he liked me. ;o)

Hopefully you get a callback soon.

Or...you could give him a call :)

Karissa said...

Yes! We do need to become friends. My mom talks about you all the time. I think she's a little obsessed.

TC said...

You're kinda cocky there ;)

Sounds good - a not bad date is a good thing in my book. Better than what I have in my life right now...

So have you heard back yet? Inquiring minds want to know! At the very least you got a nice lunch out of the whole deal, but hopefully it's more than that. I hear ya on the travel thing. I need to get out of my town and poke around. A man that doesn't move, just doesn't work for me.

Hope you're having a good week!

I'm not obsesssed...I just LOVE you Lindsy!! In the I-would-be-happy-to-claim-you-for-one-of-my-daughters kind of way. And yes...I do want you and Karissa to become friends.

Don't worry Karla, I felt very honored!!! I have a feeling Karissa and I will be friends. I mean, we're already blog stalking. It's the first step for friendship.

Julie- we have talked since then. I'll write about it soon.
