7:06 pm - Work it!

Barbs took us to a model party on Saturday, where they had some kind of fashion show at a local bar/restaurant.
It was one of those places where everyone looked like they were somebody, or posing to be somebody.
Pretty fun, got to meet her model friend, who was there with her boyfriend, of course.

How were the girls? Judge for yourself.

Andy trying to bid

Taken at Patty's charity auction at Rock Bottom. Her friend was having a fundraiser for leukemia, so she helped by being one of 16 folks being put up for auction.

Patty did great too, she ended up with a bid of 325! The guy in the pic is pointing at me after I placed a bid. Not the high one though.

Talking to a friend of mine after work today...
"God I need a beer..."
Do I really mean that? Or do I just need the social contact that comes with the bar?
Then I get to thinking... why do I do this? Why do I work? Why am I working at a job that's this hard? (challenging)- more PC

I swear I haven't been this stressed out since finals week back in college, except here it's finals week every week!
At least today was a decent day at work.

Back to why I work. I work so that someday, I can do whatever the hell I want, when I want.
I want to open up a fancy restaurant that turns into the hippest bar in town at night.
I want my life to be a neverending party with taps that dont stop flowing. (hence the bar fantasy)
I want to drive a yellow Ferrari.
Or do I want the inevitable hottie that seems to come with the Ferrari?
I want the nicest house on the hill.
Yeesh I sound like a broken record... but you get the point.

That's why I work.

Why am I so damn honest sometimes?

good thing Barbs and Jorge took me out with them to eat last night, it helped cleart my mind. Had some pseudo-Mexican food at El torito's.. I personally am partial to Chevy's for that kinda food though.

So it was good to get my mind off of stupid stuff.

12:15 am - I can see Mars
Ugh, got stood up today... Don't you hate it when you thing everything's going great with someone you just met, then Blam! ... nothing.

Here's how it started, I met this girl at Cafe Sevilla and things went extremely well, we danced together the whole night, was getting great vibes from her so I got her phone number. Called her the next day and it turns out she's going out of town for a week. So I finally get to talk to her on Saturday, and we agree to meet up downtown at a bar. She shows up later than I expected around midnight, with a girlfriend in tow, but we managed to talk a little and dance some more and we ended the night on an good note, or so I thought...
She even sounded like she was looking forward to our next date...

I should have known what was coming though, all the numbers I get at salsa have never come to any type of fruition, so I really shouldn't have expected much. But you know me, Mr optimistic.

So today I call at noon to see what time I should pick her up, no answer. I leave a message... wait a coupla hours, call again, a guy picks up? She's at work, so I don't make anything of it, I leave another message, wait a couple more hours, now dinnertime is fast approaching and I'm getting mighty antsy, and I leave a text message. Still nothing... What the hell?

Anyway. No call back, not even a return text. Life is sucking right now.

Whatever, life throws us some funky pitches sometimes doesn't it? That was definitely a knuckler, if not a screwball. Weird situation all around.

I was intensely focused on work the past few months, meeting a girl nowhere near my priority list, for good reason, but then this happens.
No wonder I didn't want to meet anyone... I hate when things don't work out. And on top of the stress I'm having at work, i really don't need any more worries. So screw it... no more chasing til i get my work to the point i want it to be. That's final.

Damn it's warm out. Unusual for San Diego nights.

current mood: confused

5:49 pm - Pb craziness
Remember the girl I met at the insurance licensing class? The one from Louisiana?
Well after weeks of playing phone tag, and on top of that my trips to arizona, we finally get our act together and meet up last night. Whitney brought her sister and her friend with her to PB bar & grill. Where I was there with Andy, Jamie, their roommate Miju and Andy's two buddies from San Jo.

They were trying to see who could knot a cherry stem in their mouths the quickest. Yes we make our own fun here in SD. Then I get a call from Whitney saying that they're outside and waiting in line.

So I'd remembered that this girl was cute, but when I saw her sister, Leslie, I was very pleasantly surprised to see that she was attractive and a bit shorter, which is importtant since I'm 5'10" and her sister is almost the same height as me with shoes on. So Leslie is more like 5'6", beautiful, blonde and my age! And to top it off, they both have the Louisiana accent!
I'm a sucker for accents.

So they got to the bar really late because they're girls y'know, and only managed to have one beer before last call. So Jamie and the crew headed to the dance floor, while I sat and talked with Whitney and them. We headed to the bar to grab another drink when they started kicking people out. Places close too early in PB.

When we get back to the parking lot of McDonald's, they don't see the car. It was towed, and guess who towed it?
The same tow company that messed up my Z. I felt really bad now, since they came to PB to visit me and now it's turning out to be a mighty expensive night for just one beer. So I drive Leslie to the tow place, partly thinking they might hook me up if they remember my situation.

Man, Leslie was pissed. I could tell because walking to my car, she was walking mad... you know how girls walk when they're mad? stomping a step ahead of you and with that look on their face that says don't mess with me. I tried to defuse the situation on the way there, and she did seem to warm up a little bit.

So we get to the tow place, and yes, the lady at the counter did remember me, and was nice enough to take off $20 from the tab. Better than nothing I guess.
And Leslie was grateful for me taking her there and getting the discount.
She thanked me for escorting her there, because she wouldn't have been too comfortable being in that neighborhood by herself. It was an industrial area and at 2 am , there's not too many people around
Brownie points? I hope so. I told them about Thursday, a few of us are going salsa at Cafe Sevilla, so we'll see them there.

Work has been crazy busy, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. The trick is to not overload myself with too much too soon. So I've been trying to schedule appointments at more sane intervals... That's key.

Whew- busy Dave= boring Dave, and we can't have that now, can we?

I have a feeling I'm going out this week. With a vengeance... haha no maybe not that crazy, but I do need to get out or I'll go crazy.

BTW, to all of you that I invited, join Friendster!

Damn was it hot! Just got back from AZ this weekend.
I'm talking about 116 degrees at 3pm and no relief at night because it was still 99 degrees out!
I could not imagine myself ever living there.

This job is going to kick my ass. It is already. But I know if I do the damn work and find some customers, I'll be golden.
I just wish people would be more open.
My personal goal is to hit 10 new accounts a month. If I can do that, I'll be happy.

Tomorrow, more prospecting in this San Diego weather, thank God I don't have to hit the streets in Tempe.

Went to a party in Tierrasanta with Mel and Shannon last night. We had a few drinks at Jackie's new place in Clairemont first.

Met a girl who lives in a house that I prospected for work! I asked her what street she lived on and it had been one that I canvassed, so i asked if she knew Sergio, the guy I'd met, and it turns out he's her brother! What a small world.

Saw Vanessa again, Jackie's cheerleader friend! She was with us at Moondoggie's the night of my going away dinner.

You do strange things when you're drunk. Last night, after getting home, I couldn't find my house keys, so I tried to insert my car key in the door. After that didn't work, something possessed me to take my cel phone apart, maybe I thought it would help me get my front door open? Who knows. I woke up this morning to find my cel in 4 pieces. After realizing that neither of these tactics would work (which took a good ten minutes) I decide to go to my car to retrieve my house keys.

Then I fell on to my bed, leaving a trail of clothes leading from the front door to my bedroom.

Mel's mad at me because I didn't go out with her today. She had called me at 10 in the morning to get me up so we could drink at the beach. I woke up with a bad hangover, and to top it off, last night I forgot to put my leftover Ramiro's burrito in the fridge. Damn it, i was craving it this morning too. Maybe it's still good?

I still haven't finished packing for my one week trip to Tempe yet, and I still have to finish a work project. A side effect of all this walking the streets, my face and hands are getting darker.

Gonna be gone for a week, so I doubt I'll be updating much for the next 7 days. ciao!

Had dinner at Rock Bottom tonight with Mel, Andy and Jorge. We had a couple of stragglers join us, Mel's 'friend' Jeff, and JP with his new girl visited too.

They were all trippin over the fact that JP has a new girl now, since he was with Melissa (in LA) for 4 years and they broke up less than a month ago. I thought that it was cool, she's a cute gal, and it doesn't seem soon for a guy. Everyone else thoughtit was kinda quick. Hey what can I say, he works fast!

Work continues to be crazy, I've been walking around in this 85 degree heat all day long this past week. 85 degrees doesn't sound like much, but imagine having to wear a shirt and tie and being outdoors continuously for the whole day.

Also, I'[m beginning to develop a deep hatred towards dogs. Someone left their dog unleashed yesterday and the damn thing chased me for 2 houses before deciding I wasn't going to invade his territory. Not running away probably helped.

OK it's off to Tempe this weekend where it is 97 degrees right now. Seriously, at 10 pm, its almost 100 degrees. GREAT...
guess what the forecast is for the next week?
mostly sunny, 112 degrees in the daytime. I'm going to bake I tell ya.

I suppose it could be worse, I could be living there.

I need a haircut, I am so overdue for one. This job takes away all my available daytime hours. I'm going to go get a haircut tomorrow... Must make myself lightweight so I don't sweat as much in AZ.

I need a ride to the airport Saturday! Everyone's out of town this weekend, it just so happens that I'm the last one leaving this weekend. Lucky me!
