Peace On Earth, Goodwill to Men

I have not experienced Christmas as a single girl in seven years. Of course I have moments where it is undoubtedly the most difficult time to fly solo (like last night at a work function when the beautiful girl who’s maternity leave I am covering arrived with her beautiful husband and beautiful baby in tow) but there are also times (like last night after the function when two of the party guests sprung me and whisked me off to the Reservoir Lounge to listen to a beautiful young girl sing amazing jazz) when my heart is full of freedom and…

Emotional Availability is Sexy

I had a great evening with a male friend this weekend who I have known for just over a year. He’s smart, funny, creative, talented, enjoys cooking, art, music, has a great sense of family, and is just the right age. We laugh our heads off together, and there is seldom ever a lull in conversation. Of course there’s a but.

If it’s ok with you…

When I see a … as the subject header for an email, it can only be one person. And tonight I came home to “…” and “If it’s ok with you, I think we should have a talk at some point.” Not having ANY CLUE what this talk may be about, I truly don’t know if it’s ok with me, but as always, curiosity has gotten the best of me. The holidays do funny things to people, and I’m prepared to let go of some anger. I have no idea what I’m in for though. It should at least make…

Things Are About To Get Crazy In Here

But not before I hibernate a little.NOvember didn’t work out so well, but it is with a renewed sense of discipline that I look forward to Nice and Not Naughty December [NNND]. I truly am looking forward to this, although I’m not entirely sure what it means. I know it means no sex. I think it might also mean no dating, although I can think of one feller who wouldn’t get a “no” if he asked me out on a date. Perhaps two, but it’s early still… Here’s a test to see if any of my friends still read this……
