Highs and Lows

That's what this week has been full of. (Warning: There's a crap-ton of profanity in this post, if you care about shit like that.) High: I have a fantastic time at a lake party on Saturday. I got to pilot a jetski and didn't even fall off! Low: The boy I was seeing through Match.com that hadn't called me back in, oh, 3 weeks - calls me out of the blue with some lame-o line about how "you know when you think about the person you want to be with, and then you meet that person? It scared me." Bullshit ya fucknut. High: I told said fucknut that we're both adults and he should have been man enough to say something rather than just simply not call for 3 weeks. I said that IF I were to consider giving it another shot, that I would hope this was not indicative of the way he handles his problems. I tried to explain to him how I felt, and he kept saying "That's ok, you can think I'm a dick. I understand." And he'd say he wanted to talk it out, but every time I started talking it out - he'd say that again. Well, guess what. I do think you're a dick. Have a nice life. Don't call me anymore. Low: Back to square on on Match with only a few more weeks to go. High: Already contacted a guy that lives much closer to me. Will set up a coffee date for later this week. Low: I have $48 to last me the next two weeks because I suck at paying bills in a smart way. High: I got my first set of stitchmarkers from the Stitchmarker Swap on the knittyboards! Stitch Marker Swap! Thank you Mrs. Motter! Low: I just found out I didn't get the promotion. In the most shittiest, fucked up manner. Through the grapevine. And when I did finally hear from the right person, it was a real wacked out conversation. Something about beauty pagents and intangibles and not being able to single out any one thing. What the fuck ever. I finally got him to tell me the other candidate was coming from the same position at another company. So, thanks for the big "fuck you" HR fuckinstuff.

Poor girl :( I feel your pain. I tried online dating back in January, and had no luck, so I stopped, and I went back to look at the site again on Sunday and it was the same group of people. Grr.
The stitch markers are nice.

The stitch markers are pretty!! Must make a note to self to join a marker swap.

Sounds like the boy you were seeing is an idiot and you are better off without him. Sounds like he has commitment issues, if ya ask me. I met my guy at work thru a mutual aquaintance. Your Mr. Right will come your way soon, sweetie.

How craptastic that you found out, thru the effing grapevine no less, that you were passed over for the promo. Nice of them to do the whole "promoting from with in", which most decent places do but they go and snag an outsider. Grr...

Just stare at the pretty (& shiny) stitchmarkers & only think about the highs. Oh, & maybe enjoy an umbrella drink. Hang in there! :)

Idiots - all of them. Those of us in the know are awed by your greatness.

For what it's worth, DH was Internet Romeo #6 - keep plugging away.

Kate said...

i agree with ladylungdoc- what an ass
(and the hr guy too) I too am trying the internet to meet mr right- had a doozer last week- will post all about it so i can commiserate. That said i had a great date on sat night with a guy from RSVP so keep your hopes up. Also read somewhere that internet relationships can last 2 years longer than others so there is hope out there.

LaBean said...

Oh...shit. Sorry things have been ronked up for you. Cuss away, babe. I can so dig it! You want me to mix some bengay in the HR idjit's drink?

Bezzie said...

That sucks about the promotion. But seriously, could the simian they shuffled over to fill it honestly use the word "fuck" as eloquently as you do? I must now go forth and incorporate "fucknut" and "HR Fuckinstuff" into my everyday vocabulary.





did I mention how much I missed your blog?!

KNIT A NEW DREAM said...

HUGS to you. I too got passed up for a big promotion last year from the same kind of "fucknut". A year later the person they gave it to really fucked up and they begged me to take the position. Oh yeah - I'll take it for a hell of a lot more money! I got it and the huge raise.
The guy - proud of you - "When you see crazy coming- cross the street!"

Rain said...

Fingers crossed for your date next week. Life is far too short to fill it with fuckwits.

I can't believe you had to hear about the promotion throught the grapevine. You should have been told sooner.

The stitchmarkers are lovely.

I'm giving them all the cyber-finger just for you!
