busy busy busy

no HNT today people. too tired and way too busy to bother this week.

have been volunteering a bit. and by a bit, i mean nearly every waking hour of the day. it's nice to be doing something i actually enjoy for once. i'm also meeting a ton of awesome new people...including some boys. i've had my eye on a josh groban-ish looking guy at the office but he's jewish and i'm not converting and i doubt he'll waste his time on me. then there's ken. which is appropriate because he actually looks like a ken doll. dark hair, square jaw, nice broad shoulders and the best part...he's a nyc police officer! he wears a gun around and it's hot. seriously. he also loves jazz, the good old stuff too. and he's asked for my number BUT also wanted my e-mail address, which does not bode well. not at all. so lets all pray ken doll gets some balls and calls before i get a message from him in my inbox, yes?

speaking of men, i called hot single friend. got his voicemail. apologized for taking so long to get back to him (i wasn't just trying to play hard to get, i've really been busy as all hell) and said i wanted to see if he was available to get a drink sometime in the next couple of weeks. breezy enough, i think. will let you know if i hear from him.

now that i'm in the dating game again, have decided to set some ground rules for myself: 1.) no more dealing with men who don't know what they want. 2.) no more dealing with another man's baggage and personal problems. 3.) have more confidence in myself so that calling boys won't be so freaking scary. 4.) give more chances to men instead of ruling them out right away. 5.) try not to be too jaded from the hellish relationship i just extracted myself from. 6.) sit back and enjoy the ride.

the project at the sleek soho office ended completely early (so the parties-not-to-be-named are probably thinking of settling or something), but this has resulted in flooding the market with a shit load of temp workers sans jobs. so i filed for unemployment for the first time (i'm not sure i'm allowed to do that as a temp but it was worth a shot) and then was lucky enough to get another project the next week so i'm starting yet another job tomorrow! blah. same old shit. so i'm networking my ass off at the moment to get hooked up with something more permanent and at least a little more satisfying. wish me luck.

i'm meeting barack obama on monday!!! he's one of my heroes and i can't wait. i have a friend going to a small fundraising event with him and he's taking me with. i'll be completely out of place with all the hedge fund people but i don't care. you think i can bring my copy of his autobiography to autograph without looking like a complete loser? i'm so nervous!!!!

I really like Obama. His convention speech was electrifying. I don't think it would be dorky at all to bring his book for an autograph.

I once went to school with no pants on. Marriedman tried to get me to take pictures of myself, but I told him I wasn't going to do it until he apologized for that incident involving the plunger and joefish.

I don't think it would be bad to bring the book either! That's pretty sweet that you're getting to meet him.

Good luck with the job stuff.

bring it. mr. obama was in our office one time and as he walked through, there was a hush of awe. i heard from teh people who actually talked to him that he was very personable and all-around awesome.

Yeah, Obama will find it novel that you're actually a true fan (sonds odd for a senator), and not just someone there to kiss his ass because of his position.

I met one of our senators at an event once (M. Cantwell) and promptly (but courteously) told her that I did not appreciate her vote on a bill that hurt our state's tax payers. We actually had a very pleasant discussion/debate about the merits of the bill she voted against, and my concerns for our voters. Neither of us budged on our position, but she did comment that it was nice to not have the same old "Senator, we love you" discussion, and actually get feedback.

good call on the jewish boy, even if the religion thing was not going to be a problem, you'd have had to sell your soul to his MOTHER

Obama's got a book? I sense a Borders run within the next week. Hope he's everything I've heard him to be! Good luck with the job stuff, Jazz.

Wait, I thought he was hiding in a cave somewhere near Afghanistan? Somebody better let Teddy know...

Seriously though, I'd probably bring the book. Who knows, maybe you can get his number!

Good luck and as for the boys, go for the one that offers his number in hopes he left enough of an impression to beckon you to the phone and give a call; this type is usually the sweetie! If you’re really looking for a good one, trust me... If you just wanna’ play around with em’? That’s a different story! Whatever your choice I wish you, "The best Jazz!"

There's certainly a lot in this post. Good luck with the men. And please, please leave them with their own problems. I have to admit that's the nicest thing I ever learned - if they can't fix themselves, I can do nothing more. So, sit back, enjoy the ride - and let the baggage carriers walk right on by to the next set of overly eager arms.
