Not even going to bother trying to catch up on things, as it's been way too long since my last entry.
Not too much to talk about now either, but I figured 2 months was long enough, I may as well make an appearance just in case the few that read this are still checking in.
Had a real good night at bowling last night. In fact, the last few weeks have been good for me. Last week I shot a 687 series, and last night I bowled a 235, a 225, and a 266 for a 726 series. We also swept the other team in games which was an added bonus.
Next week we bowl the first place team, so hopefully I can continue my good run.
My average is up to a 202, and might go up to a 203 after last night. Not bad considering that as of my last blog entry it was a 198. :-)
In a previous post I mentioned signing up for the Nearfest patron program. I ended being number 119 in the lottery list. I snagged seat number A29, which is the first row of the orchestra, just after a 4 row "Pit" area.
I've been seeing Valerie again for the past 6 weeks or so. She's the one I was seeing last year around this same time. Both of us are in a different place emotionally this time, so things are going better now.
As for Romy....she abruptly cut all communication with me the day after Super Bowl. I have no idea why. Things seemed good. We were having fun. The last time I saw/spoke with her she was talking about future things we would be doing.
Funny thing is, we weren't really "dating", we were pretty much just friends (hence my starting to see Valerie...I'm not a polygamist, even in a casual sense). It's for that reason that I am so perplexed by her actions. You might ignore someone you don't want to "go out with" anymore (although even that is cowardly), but you don't just ignore someone you called "friend." Even if she was afraid to face me or even talk to me on the phone about whatever the issue was, I didn't even get the courtesy of an email. That would have been easier than ignoring me, because then I wouldn't have left phone messages and emails trying to get an inkling of what the hell was going on.
Anyway, I guess that's enough for now.
