My Life as a Transient

I've been living at my sister's place for the last three weeks. What was going to be a 'weekend stay' to take care of the pooch became a multi-week stint. Whether it's me allowing myself to freeze up rather than face the unknown future or a feeling of responsibility for this poor, lonely beast is anyone's guess, but I'll be moving along in the next few days. I've gotten to spend a little time with my sis, too, which has been really fun.. but also surreal and crazy?

My sis introduced me to this... friend? acquaintance? dude she keeps on the back burner just in case? that lives in the city, and it was just the most surreal night. It sounded really fun at first, and I was happy that she wanted to introduce me to her friend, but she started freaking out about driving into the city as soon as we got in the car.. and it just completely devolved into this weird bitchfest from there. We get to this beautiful apartment, and the guy's kinda handsome and charming, if not slightly high-strung, and I really enjoyed talking to him. We rode in a taxi and ate at a beautiful Mediterranean place, and he was really kind to us.. but she was just SUPER bitchy. I've never thought of her as the type of girl that puts on an act in front of guys, but.. I just can't help but feel like this night was an act put on for him.. somehow. It. was. awkward. It was painfully obvious that he's totally in love with her. When I mentioned that, she said, 'I know. I've talked to him about it before and told him that I'm not into him.' In the back of my mind, I was thinking, 'this is the kind of night that I could never dream of having.' That's not self-pity, it's just.. fact. I don't try hard enough or have that level of charisma. Going on that outing from hell was like seeing how the other half lives or something. So.. weird.. I envy the food and the lifestyle, not so sure about the people..

So I've been taking the Lamster out on long walks these past few days. There are thorny vines back in the woods--but I did not know this until quite recently! Why did I find that out? Lammy was playfully prancing around as we went down the path. I'd let go of his leash so he could run free for a bit, but some people were coming from the opposite direction so I figured I'd better make it look like I had control of a dog that couldn't run off even if he wanted to. When I reached down to get his leash, I somehow grazed the thorny vines.. surprise! The thorns got me good on my arm, they drew some blood--I'm staring at the scratches they gave me as we speak--but what was even BETTER was the thorn that poked me in the nip and got stuck there!!! There truly IS a reason that women should wear bras... and I learned it first-hand.

I've kinda fallen in love with Elementary. I'm only on Season 1, but I saw that Season 3 is in the works.. I hope the show's still this awesome!

I should be heading back to Ohio in the next few weeks. More and more I feel like I just want to live a quiet life. I don't know if it's practical, but.. I don't know. :/
