The Sin That Has Ruined Me...

Tonight I find myself awake with the anticipation of the evenings bowl game results. I have, for the first time in my life, bet on sports. I diligently chose teams based on mascots. While I spent many formitive years in Oklahoma, I did not choose them due to their mascot. Who wants to support crime? People who took what was not theirs (or anyones at that particular date and time) to take are no role model for today's youth. And then the is the Ute... or whatever the hell it is. Who really knows? And you can't support something if you don't know what it is... piss...
Well apparently the crappy mascot god is on their sides... or God is punishing me for gambling...

Content to be alone...

Is there really any room for someone else?

On Second Thought

Current mood: blah

So a post that I previously classified as public, then preferred, has returned again to public. While I don't think that it is necessarily the best idea to write things about people where they can read them, I figure... if you want to read it... then go ahead. Part of me thinks I should title posts by the name of the person(s) that they are directed at. Would that be rude? Possibly. But would it be any more inappropriate than writing about people to begin with?

And Shaun... I am expecting a phone call... and a message... or at least a number where I can reach you. See you soon if I'm lucky.

Does the nature in which a man approaches a woman affect the level of attraction felt in return

You often hear about women who are attracted to men and enjoy the chase more than the reward. And often times, despite our best intentions, many of us become those women. The more the guy in question appears aloof, the more the girl the wants him.

But what effect can be created by a guy that bends over backwards to ask for your number with an offer that includes some of your favorite things? What is the resulting feeling when a guy gets a world of information out of a five minute conversation and then asks you if you would be interested in dinner and a visit to an art museum? Is the effect the same? Or does the guy's attention to detail and apparent desire to actually go out of his way to positivly impact the girl's image of him cause an adverse affect?

So, said guy must have realized the error of his ways and now he is counter-balancing the niceness with the ever famed wait to call. The problem? I didn't need the wait to call counter-balance. I love art museums.

News gig, new digs, new new new new new...

So I know I need to update on the new job, apartment, state, clothes, futon, friends, blah blah blah. But... all I can think about is this conversation I had earlier today. I was fragmented and distracted and nervous and well... I just made a crap impression. I wouldn't call me again if I were that person. In fact, I would avoid any further social contact for fear that the crappy phone conversationalist disease would be contagious. So, what we have established is that if I were two people, the second Lacey would not talk to the first Lacey due to her poor phone skills.

Too tired to write anyone in particular so...

Current mood: tired

Since I am completely worn out and have virtually no spare time... I have decided that a rambling stream of consciousness would be the best way to catch everyone up before I am out of computer contact for a few days. Brace yourselves.

As I lay here in my apartment for the last night... I wonder whether I am making the right move. But I guess I have to be content with my decision for the time being. I see so much potential and I simply am hitting a wall when it come to realizing it. But for those of you who know me best, you know that no matter what I decide I will always question it... and no matter how things are going I will always expect more. Sorry.

I need some new pics, but I have felt all kinds of blah when I've have a camera lately. I figure the next two days will be the opportune time to take some shots while I travel. Perhaps I will find the perfect pics for my Christams cards.

I have yet to finish packing. This could be a problem since I have told myself I am leaving before 7am. So... 7 hours and 9 minutes to get a good nights sleep and finish packing... this should be great. The dog is stressing over the lack of stuff left in the apartment. Currently we are down to an air mattress, his bed, laundry, one suitcase, and dog food. At least I have dog food though. He's lucky... I already got rid of all my people food.

I will be staying in a hotel for my first three nights in the new place. Hopefully it's not ghetto fab. I wish I had some plans or friends in the immediate area. That always makes the transition a little easier. But I will have cable and a bed I don't have to make. I plan on enjoying that thoroughly.

I should have something big for breakfast tomorrow. But not too big. Enough to keep me going through Florida at least. I hate stopping for food when I am on long trips. Stopping on long trips should be reserved for photographs and oddities. Like the world's largest peanut... Or the giant whale slide on Rt 66. If anyone knows of anything really cool along I-10, let me know. I'll be in the car with my phone all day... so... for real... call.

Well, I'm off to bed. One last note... I wrecked the company car today... on my official last day with the company. More to come on that little crap fest.

Is Anyone Else Noticing a Trend...

How many blog entries can a girl have stating that she can't sleep? Not the problem tonight. Tonight the problem (if you so choose to call it that) is that my dog hasn't seen me all day and when I try to go to sleep he stands on my stomach and licks my forehead... strange. So for now I will acquiesce to his needs and keeps the lights on.

On an exciting note, the hockey game was amazing! I had more fun than I anticipated and the game was well played, clean hockey. It would be nice however, if I could stop myself from seeing the marketing onslaught and focus solely on the game. Instead I am mentally logging sponsors and the type of sponsorship they have, what promotions are available for recreation in a new venue, how many different ways they have of telling fans to buy more tickets and merchandise (an area where they could honestly use a little help). Anywho... that's all for now... here at least. I need to dump the marketing information into an actual file as I am certain that information falls out of my head when I roll over in bed at night.
