A dork match made in heaven...

Yay me! It’s a IRL connection through the drumming group as I had hoped. Different one from the one I had a crush on, but that really is immaterial at this point. I know it sounds hokey, but have you ever gotten that sign, be it from the heavens or wherever that this is the crazy person for you? Ha ha.. He confirmed for me while I was giving him a ride home from a party that he absolutely loves my two favorite moves, the first one, Star Wars, is not really a difficult match for a guy, but the second one was like a revelation. Once I heard that, I was thinking to myself, “you can’t not go for this one, this is the heavens opening up and showing you neon signs <> at least give him a chance”. When I dropped him off he tried to kiss me and I was so shocked that I didn’t kiss him back, I was not prepared… then the conversation was sort of awkward and he went to his house.
Next day he invited me to join in a parade with a different group for Halloween. It was a very different experience, playing in costume and he wasn’t even drumming!! But apparently he is a really great horn player!! So I was left to make friends with people in percussion and was able to figure out what to do…. what a test!!! This time I knew he was interested and we talked for hours and even sung along to my CD of my co-favorite movie. It was a major dork fest, but what can I say, that’s what I am. We ended up making out for a long while.
So these experiences are really taking a hit on me as far as sleep is concerned because I just don’t want to pack it in for the night, ya know??
Last fun encounter: we had rehearsal then afterward we greeted each other and went our separate ways because he had to make it to the grocery store. I couldn’t help myself, I called him and asked him if we could hang out, he said yes. So I went home to check on my dogs and then we met to a restaurant, he got food I got a beer…I needed a nice cold one!!! Yum!! We talked for hours… made out.. I headed home REALLY early in the morning.
All in all, it is great. He is a bit odd, but in retrospect, so am I, only someone as odd as myself could truly appreciate me and revel in what I am and not discourage it… Rides a bike for transportation, but still has a car. He’s educated and very talented. Has a lot of Star Wars in his house.. J But what really struck me because my mind is so focused on my job is he doesn’t have a steady one, and this is by choice. I think he got burnt out by the rat race and is making ends meet with rental income and consulting jobs. I have to say that I respect that, if I didn’t have tons of student loans, I wouldn’t be so tied to having a job. But I have no choice. Most of all, the guy really likes me and that is so great for a poor girl’s ego, and he is very respectful and gentle. Ahh where will it go from here?
