Subject: Had a date this evening.I was so bored I thought I was going to fall off my seat and snooze on the floor. Onto the next. Fortunately, I kept it to just meeting for a coffee. An hour and a half wasn't too bad to suffer in the hope of something good. Besides, it made me appreciate being single. See, there's always a silver lining.Looking forward to your next date tale.Nigel
Anyway until Chris comes to his senses I shall be interviewing other men for the vacant position of love interest. I'm meeting OKC Pre-Date #1, H, for a movie this weekend. I'm not sure which day yet, since he wants to go hiking on one of the days and has been waiting to see how the weather is forecast to turn out. It's no skin off my nose as I am either going to be working or running errands for my Peru trip. I had a Typhoid jab today and am nursing a dead arm now as a result. It totally put the mockers on my plan to hit the gym and take a body conditioning class after work. I cringe at the thought of even attempting a bicep curl or shoulder press in my current state, since my left arm's pretty much a noodle.
I also left with 2 prescriptions, one for an antibiotic (Cipro) just in case I am stricken with a bout of travellers tummy - check the list of foods this website tells you to avoid: water in all forms, fruit, vegetables, any dairy that might contain unpasteurized milk, raw or undercooked fish or meat (no famed Peruvian ceviche for me then) or fish that may contain poisonous biotoxins like snapper, grouper and sea bass!!! So pretty much everything then. It would have been quicker to list what I CAN eat. I plan to be cautious anyway since the last thing you need when you're spending 4days up a mountain with limited bathroom facilities is a touch of the trots.
Since I couldn't follow through on my weight training plan I stayed late at the office to work on a training course I am developing for the department and then squeezed in some exercise by walking the 3.5 miles home via Bed Bath & Beyond to buy some bits for my trip. Quite a lot of bits as it turned out since I practically cleared them out of travel sized goodies. Well not really, but I spent $65.83 can you believe - 4days up a mountain with no conveniences=lots and lots and lots of wipes. I got quite carried away but thankfully stopped short at a one size fits all transparent rain poncho. Can you imagine? Admittedly I did seriously consider it - $3.99 man - but sanity prevailed in the nick of time.
...think you're absolutely adorable. And I'd like to get to know you better.Who am I?Hmm....I was born in England, have lived in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Los Angeles and now NYC. I work in NYC as well.After discovering the cure for cancer, I climbed Mt. Everest (without supplemental oxygen), studied with the Dalai Lama, and dated (briefly) Cindy Crawford.My career as a Yankees third baseman was going nowhere, and rather than accept the grant from the Salk Institute, I went to work at a televisionnetwork in New York.And you?Please write back because it would put a smile on my face.
