I got an email a few minutes ago telling me that a slate of free tix to see
'night Mother
with Edie Falco and Brenda Blethyn were available and if I wanted in. Who do I call?

Mr. Swoonage.

Mind you, before Thanksgiving he was open to doing dinner so calling him up to see if he was interested in seeing the show wasn't so far removed of a step considering that he and I had discussed theatre before with different shows that we had seen. On the good side, he was very interested in going to see the show (and I could only hope that his interest in seeing me as well would be equal to that of the show as well) but he couldn't commit as he had a work event that evening but he would try to get out of it but he wouldn't know for another hour.

Sadly, though, the block of tickets evaporated and I had to email him that they were gone but if another slate came up would he be interested...

As for SkiGuy...we were going to try to get together last Saturday but that fell through and he said he would call so we can set something else up. I'm going to be good though...I'm going to make him call me this time...

I'm supposed to be happy right....

....I'm with my family right? (And yes, for the record, I do love my family...)

I'm supposed to be enjoying my time away from the office?

So why the hell am I counting the days until I'm back in New York? Why is that 6:30AM Saturday flight looking so appealing to me now?

SkiGuy v. Swoonage

I have dinner plans set with Swoonage when I get back into town.

As for SkiGuy, if he would stay in the country more, we could see each other more often. And, when he is in the country, our schedules haven't meshed so that we can see each other. I'm trying to be understanding and considerate because he's enjoying his work and his family has gone through some medical problems as of late but at the same time I'd like to see him a bit more often.

My last message to him told him that he was missed and he called me back FROM THE PLANE (as in actually on the plane) before take off to return back to Canada. You can't really discount things like that...

We're trying. I'm trying...

Color me surprised...

I promise when I'm thinking more clearly and not as tired I'll write about this weekend's rugby tournament but something happened at the post-match drink up that really made me rethink how I look at people...or at least one person...

One of the guys on the team...well...let's just say that he was never high on my list of "get to know" people and it might have been from his demeanor and/or actions, but I never really made the effort to talk to him or get to know him. Even he said that he can be or appear standoffish (and that's his word not mine). Last night, I was working the door at the drink-up when he came up to me and said, "I know you don't hear this nearly enough as you should but all of the work you do for the team is really what keeps us running and I know you don't get enough thanks for the work you do but I just want you know that we all appreciate it."

From there we started talking about perceptions and our varying "work" for the team before we started goofing around with each other and pretty much having a lot of fun with each other (and not in that way although we did have one hysterical sex joke between the two of us). As I sat in the cab on the way home I was still going over our conversation in my head and how really and truly honored I felt to get a great compliment from him and that when he does let that standoffish guard down, he's really not as bad of a guy as I once considered him...

Decision Making Quote of the Day

Hi. I'd like to book my trip with you. -- Me, last night. Very happy. Very happy indeed.


I've had a few people ask me about the object of my swoonage...

I'm not really sure what, if anything, I should say especially since I know he has the URL to the blog and complimented me on my handwriting which I kinda thought was an odd thing to compliment me on but, hey, a compliment is a compliment....but I digress...

But ya know...It's a crush. That's really all it is. I haven't acted on it (although I will admit to a heavy dose of flirting) and, for the record, I don't know if I will act on it. I mean SkiGuy is still around and when I confessed my swoonage/crushing to someone the first thing they said was, "But you have a boyfriend, right?"

Well, I don't consider SkiGuy to be my boyfriend because...well...he's not. I don't think we're at that stage yet where I can call him a boyfriend. I totally adore SkiGuy and the time we have spent together and, of course, want to spend more time with him. But, then there's this other guy who, for some reason has piqued my interest and I think, to a certain extent, it's more because he and I share an odd enjoyment of the entertainment industry and things of that nature and it's not something that SkiGuy has much interest in at all...

So that's where it stands...I haven't done anything, toyed with the idea of it but haven't done anything and don't know if I will.

Then again maybe I just enjoy the flirting...sigh...I dunno...

Access: 646Guy

So you might have been watching TV last night and maybe you saw an interview with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson at the 2004 Glamour Women of the Year Awards and wondered to yourself: "I think I know that guy in the headseat standing behind them in the black suit looking like their bodyguard."


That was me.

I've already gotten emailed from a few talent escorts about it. Their thoughts: At least you weren't looking right into the camera. I'm just waiting for the email from the guy who handles the escorts.

Alter Egos

Because I just don't want to talk about the election just yet (just listened to Kerry's concession speech) I will just say the following...

My alter ego has struck sending a letter/question to an online website (somewhat popular and filled with somewhat interesting news...ya know, something to talk about around the watercooler that sorta thing)....not only did it get answered by apparently also made a bit of trivia history for this column as well...I'll give you all a few days to scrounge around and see if you can find it...then maybe I'll be in the mood to talk about the election then...

A letter from John Kerry

Okay, so it's just the big form letter I got in my email, but still, getting just political enough for the blog, I think this letter to all of his supporters really shows why John Kerry should be elected president.

During this campaign I have asked you for so much -- your time, your energy, and your financial support. Today, I ask you for one final thing -- your vote.

Tomorrow, Americans will face a choice.

How will we find our way forward? How will we keep America safe, and keep the American dream alive?

I believe we begin by giving this country we love a fresh start. This morning, I would like to give you as a plainly as I can the summary of my case on how -- together -- we can change America.

I believe we begin by moving our economy, our government, and our society back in line with our best values.

I believe we do whatever it takes to lead our troops to success and bring them home safe. And when they do come home, I believe we begin by rebuilding an America with a strong middle class where everyone has the chance to work and the opportunity to get ahead.

Tomorrow, you can choose a fresh start. You can choose a president who will defend America and fight for the middle-class.

You can choose between four more years of George Bush's policy to ship jobs overseas and give tax breaks to the companies that do it -- or a president who will reward the companies that create and keep good jobs here in the United States of America.

Tomorrow you will face a choice between four more years of George Bush's giveaways to the big drug companies and the big HMOs -- or a president who will finally make health care a right, and not a privilege, for every American.

This election is a choice between four more years of tax giveaways for millionaires along with a higher tax burden for you -- or a president who will cut middle-class taxes, raise the minimum wage, and make sure we guarantee women an equal day's pay for an equal day's work.

Tomorrow, America faces a choice between four more years of an energy policy for big oil, of big oil, and by big oil -- or a president who finally makes America independent of Mideast oil in ten years. A choice between George Bush's policy that just yesterday showed record profits for oil companies and record gas prices for American consumers. I believe that America should rely on our own ingenuity and innovation, not the Saudi Royal family.

Tomorrow this campaign will end. The election will be in your hands. If you believe we need a fresh start in Iraq; if you believe we can create and keep good jobs here in America; if you believe we need to get health care costs under control; if you believe in the promise of stem cell research; if you believe our deficits are too high and we're too dependent on Mideast oil then I ask you to join me and together we'll change America.

I ask for your vote and I ask for your help. When you go to the polls bring your friends, your family, your neighbors. No one can afford to stand on the sidelines or sit this one out.

And in return for your hard work, you have my commitment to always fight for you, to always be on your side. In the words of Bruce Springsteen that have become the theme of this campaign. "We've made a promise we swore we'd always remember...no retreat and no surrender."

Tomorrow we will change America and with your help I will always keep that promise to you.

Thank you,

John Kerry
