Wow. What can I say about the trip to Austin?
Well, we spent most of our time not with his parents. Apparently seeing them was not actually that high on his list of things to do. We dis hang out with Nana, so that's a win for me.
So I met New Guy's mom and the three of us headed to Jason's Deli. New guy ordered a turkey sandwich... on Friday. His mom has perfected stink eye. Sweet Catholic New Guy should not be eating flesh meat on Friday. How do I know that? His mom let him know.
New Guy's brother apparently met a chef on Catholic Match. She's great! Of course no one has met her in real life (including New Guy's brother - no date yet) and the actual information on her is seriously limited. This does not matter however. The fact that she is looking for love (but only PG love) on Catholic Match makes her a winner. Being Protestant makes me a los-... not a winner. How do I know this? His mom suggested that he find a "nice girl" on Catholic Match. I know what you're thinking. "Why did he tell you all this?" He didn't. I was still sitting at the table across from her.
I tried to make conversation. No dice.
Then the kicker. So New guy gets up to go to the restroom and his mom gets up too. Okay, she needs to pee. Who am I to judge?
Where is she heading?
Oh, to the salad bar. To stand there. And stare at me from about 15 feet away. 15 feet. 5 yards. Staring. Mean staring.
So, I cried. Not until I was in the car, but she got to me. Seriously though, who does that!?!
At least we don't have to go back until Thanksgiving.
In other news, I bumped into my oldest brothers girlfriend in the parking lot at random. That 2 minute conversation was the highlight of lunch.
