I've been communicating with 4 or 5 guys so I basically sent them a message saying I'm leaving and giving them my email in case they wanted to keep in contact. Apparently they do as I have two more dates coming up which may prove to be interesting. One is with the guy who said he was white but clearly isn't. Why am I going you may ask? Because he is also clearly very attractive. And I am shallow. But I've also been single for a LONG time so cut me some slack. The other is with a guy who is Irish and sounds really cool and maybe he has an accent which would be a bonus. I'm also going on my second date with the guy from Saturday. He suggested supper. I suggested coffee. He ignored me and suggested sushi and I like sushi so sushi it is! We're going on Sunday evening. I figure two dates is good to see if I like someone enough to continue. If I still feel nothing I will ask him if he just wants to hang out as friends because that is something everyone wants to hear. So, basically, I did close my account but I'm still going to keep in contact with the guys who I was talking to but I won't be getting any new matches. It's kind of a relief not to have to deal with it anymore. Remind me of this when I get the great idea to start internet dating again.

Here's something sad: One of my friends told me yesterday that a friend of hers is dying of cancer. I'm not sure if I'm going to get this story straight and she reads this so I apologize if it's wrong but, I think what happened is that she has Crohn's disease and she had to get part of her bowel removed and, when they opened her up, they found that her body was full of cancer. She just turned 27. Her friends have come from all over Canada to be with her and they all made her this quilt with patches that represented memories that they had of her and her life which is so amazing and so very very sad. It really got me thinking about how people are always saving things to do when they have money or when they retire or whatever and who knows what will happen before then and what if you never get to do all the things you planned? It made me sad.
Which leads me to something happier: My friend May-B is getting married in September and she invited me to her after-party because the ceremony is very small and I really wanted to go but I didn't know if I could afford it so I was sort of on the fence but yesterday, after I heard the sad story, I started looking at flights. And then today she found that she has room for some extra people at the ceremony so she invited me to that! So I decided to go! I'm so excited! So guess what, city that rhymes with fun, I'm coming back! Start preparing.
For those who live there, I'm planning on flying in on Friday the 18th so you should probably book that night off immediatly. Also, I will be coming to Saturday morning coffee ladies so you should plan on being there too. For those who don't live there, don't get too down. It gets very cold in winter.

Speaking of the city that rhymes with fun, the guy who I went out with for coffee the first time who was from Sri Lanka told me that he thought Regina was in the States and I was like, "No, it's in Canada", and he was like, "But what's the place in the States...Va...I mean...VIRginia...yeah, that's it" and he was so clearly embarrassed and I was thinking as he was saying it, "Dude, I am so sorry that you just said that," as I tried so hard not to laugh and quickly changed the subject to something that didn't rhyme with a female body part. It was awesome.

I just recently realized that I don't get TSN with my satellite cable package which means I can't watch the Rider games on TV and a part of me died a little bit so I emailed my landlord and promised my first born to him if he gets the channel added on. And also I would pay for it. With babies. I hope he goes for it.
At the moment I'm listening to the last pre-game on the internet. I love the internet. I'm also wearing my Saskatchewan Roughrider underwear for luck. Except it's not really Roughrider underwear. It's Rider green but, instead of sliver "S's" there are sliver dollar signs but they look like "S's" if you squint or look at them quickly and look away so it's close enough. I imagine if I were to go out in public without pants more people would yell "Let's go Riders!" then "Let's go Money" anyways. IF I were to go out in public without pants. Which I obviously wouldn't do. Again.
