    @veritek, that’s adorable! I too have a star tattoo (well, its multiple stars) and would totally be amazed if someone bought me a star.

    @abbytoo I have two star “related” tattoos I suppose. One is an actual star and the other is a phrase in Latin about stars. So apparently you and I are awesome with out star tattoos πŸ˜‰

    I thought you couldn’t actually “buy” a star? But still an adorable gesture. Maybe you guys could do a date to a planetarium. Or maybe I’ve watched too many episodes of Friends. Keep us updated!

    My week has been lowkey. But I have a doctor’s appointment today. If my tests come back normal, I can go back to once a year pap smears. I’ve had over 20 pap smears in the last 5 years.

    Does anyone have fun plans for the weekend?

    Good luck with the tests kare, I hope everything comes back normal. I had to have 2 paps a year for a while, definitely annoying.

    @kare I think you’re right. I guess he just bought the right to name the star? (and how do we know they don’t let a million people just buy the same naming rights for the same star? possibly a scam? lol)

    I dunno, allegedly the paperwork is coming in the mail soon. And if there were a planetarium anywhere near me I’d be all over that!

    I hope your tests come back normal and you don’t have to do any more of those for a long time!!

    I am working today and second job tonight. Tomorrow I’ll venture back to crossfit for the first time since the half marathon last weekend since my body feels back to normal now. If the new guy finds out he doesn’t have to work this weekend we **might** have a date tomorrow, if not, I’ll go to my folks house for Easter a bit early and then leave their house at a reasonable hour on Sunday to go take him some food leftovers since he has no where to go for Easter and we always make way too much food.

    Good luck with the tests, Kare! I just had mine last week, and I’m always thankful that I only have to do it once a year.
    Veritek, I think the star naming is really cute. Even if it’s not really “yours” it’s a fun gift! I’ve seen ads for that, and I’ve always thought it would be a fun gift for that person who has everything. That or a goat, purchased in their name, for someone in a developing country.
    I’ve been home sick this week with tonsillitis of all things- my throat is feeling almost normal again, and not like I swallowed a hot cactus! But I have absolutely no plans this weekend, other than going to the library to study. Boring. My sis and her fam are coming to visit for Easter, so I’m glad I get to see them, and I’m glad I won’t be sick either!

    I haven’t updated lately, just because I feel like I end up sounding like a broken record. And it’s all very frustrating. (Like always.) Awhile back I went on dates with a couple of guys- one was ok but meh (didn’t hear back from him which was fine), and the other was really fun and awesome. I wound up going out with that guy 3 times, last time on St Patrick’s Day, and all were a blast- we got along great, made each other laugh, talked up a storm, lots of chemistry. All signs point to positive. Well, last sunday he called me, to say hi and see how I was doing and hear my voice, but then also to tell me that he also had been dating someone else before he met me (ok no surprise), and that he felt like he can’t date 2 people seriously at the same time and that he felt that he wanted to see that one through, and if only we’d met earlier he wouldn’t have to make this decision, and he may not have thought it all the way through and it may not work out, and I’m great in xyz ways, etc etc. Basically it’s not anything I’ve done, or that we’re not compatible, but he just wants to date one person at a time now and I’m not it.

    I also had a phone date with a guy, who really preferred to talk on the phone first instead of just having a cup of coffee or something. And it felt like a job interview. He asked a question, I answered, said “how about you?” and he’d answer. Ugh. He’s cute but I’m not sure this is going to go well. And I get only a few matches on eharmony these days, and most of them have either no picture or a sparsely filled in profile. So, I’m feeling pretty bummed about the state of things lately. I wish things would just turn around, it really starts to get to me.
    Anyway: I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

    @Moneypenny I’ve totally had the feels-like-an-interview phone call before a date! Some people are just awkward/shy. I’d at ;east give it an in person if you think there’s a chance.

    So I went on a really really good date on Friday. It’s the first one after my breakup and I shouldn’t be excited but…just so good. Talked for 6 hours straight and just felt like “why haven’t I known you before now?” We are going out again tonight. I am definitely trying not to get my hopes up especially because I’m still a bit fragile. It helps a lot that it’s a childhood/good friend of my friend’s fiance who is amazing. And he’s just incredibly nice and we have a lot in common. If nothing else it makes me SO HAPPY I ended things with my ex. Even if this doesn’t work out, there are better things out there.

    @kmentothat I’m so happy you had a good time! You deserve it after what you’ve been through! And you’re right, if nothing else, at least you aren’t’ stuck with your ex in a bad situation and you’ve seen there are better things! I’m so excited for you!

    @money I think I had a phone date interview once. It was a guy that lived about 3 hours away and he wanted to talk on the phone before driving down to meet me for a date. It seemed a little odd since I’m not really a phone talker, but whatevs. I guess I passed the phone test. We only went on that one date. I really hope things turn around for you soon!

    As for me, the weekend took an interesting turn. Dad went back into the hospital Friday afternoon (that’s his fifth hospitalization in the last 10 months for those keeping score at home.) He’s still in there so I spent the weekend hanging out with him at the hospital. Pro tip: buy the nurses good coffee from Panera and they will fawn all over you and your loved one πŸ™‚ And yesterday I trucked up some Easter food and the three of us had Easter dinner in his hospital room. Mom was lucid and actually very sweet yesterday. She even brought me an Easter basket.

    The cherry on the Easter sundae? The new guy finally was able to be done working and we had an impromptu date last night! We were both kind of dressed down and since nothing was really open since it was Easter Sunday, we ate at Hooters lol. It was close to the hospital and his apartment and they have decent wings! So I had my second date and we had a great time and there will be a third date this coming weekend unless I still have parents in the hospital or he gets stuck at work again! All in all, not a bad weekend.
