New York- July- 2003
I went out on my best first date ever. It was also a blind date so that’s saying A LOT.
Through some kind of freakish accident on a day like any other, I ended up emailing back and forth with Kristhina’s boyfriend’s best friend. Despite Kristhina’s warnings (she knows me too well), he ended up asking me out on a date and after two weeks of scheduling conflicts we went out.
Because we are both Kristhina’s friends, we each came with a built in recommendation letter. There was a chance that we could both be psycho, but we were both aware of the fact that there is a limit to the psychosis K will put up with so we weren’t worried.
We liked each other.
We had a great time.
We got in the car.
The boy turned out to be a Bush loving/ pro-war Republican.
End of story.

New York- K’s bday Party- April, 2005
I show up at the party in leather mini skirt, black boots and a red turtle neck.
I had a date.
Republican boy was sitting across the room with his new “girlfriend”.
They both looked equally Republican.
We flirted from a distance.

I guess he hasn’t lost his touch…
I don't know why I care.
