Wow...it's been a long time, but Cecily forced me to update.
I'm happy to report that I did have a great time at the O's game, and I can't remember whether they won that game or not. The O's might have won, but I certainly didn't. That military guy never called again. His loss. hee hee.
In other news, I met a nice guy on Wild-Card Weekend. One of my favorite football weekends, and it was especially great since I could be an unemotional spectator since the Ravens had a bye. I went to a bar that I hadn't been to in ages (not my regular football bar b/c I wanted some eye candy), and luckily, there was one seat next to a cute guy (and his friends).
We talked, we laughed, I was witty and on top of my game the entire night (even after they bought me a shot). The guys shared their wings, I bought mozzarella sticks, and shared. hee hee.
Well go figure, the cute guy next to me was my age, single, no kids, and never married (that's important to me). He asked me out and we went to a delicious dinner and then scoffed when I said 'Thank you for paying.' He said 'I wouldn't ask you out and then ask you to pay.' Imagine that; chivalry in such horrid economic times.
Since then, we've been out a couple times, and he always pays. I invited him to a symphony concert at the local theater, and I paid for tickets. He paid for dinner/drinks. He said it was the best date ever. Wow.
So of course, I had to buy some new, cute clothes, but I've only spent 100 on clothes, and 300 on tickets (we're going to the second set of the symphony series at the end of the month), so I think it's a pretty even trade. I'm a season ticket holder to the theater, and the first set of seats I got SUCKED (this was a special performance). I'm a seat snob, so I had to purchase early and for 150 we're sitting center orchestra this time instead of in the corner where we couldn't even see the whole ensemble.
The update is that things are working out for me as of right now. He's still cute (sans beer/shot goggles), and I am making the best of our fun dates. What more could a girl ask for? Football rules!
