Post-date post

Wow, was I ever wrecked when I wrote that last post. I vaguely remember sitting at my monitor thinking I was actually going to throw up. Fortunately I didn't.

So I'm still a bit freaked out about last night. I definitely had a good time but I did not enjoy the end of that high. I think it would be wise to smoke less from now on. I get a little too paranoid when I'm not comfortably ensconced in a couch with a movie and a Grey-shaped spoon.

I can't figure out Denis. He's a little rough around the edges but also has quite polished manners. He has traveled all over the world and loves food and can count in Cantonese. We talked for hours about all kinds of things and it was fun. And then we went to Little Italy for a couple more drinks at Souz Dal and Wild Orchid. Then he showed me his 230 sq. ft apartment and the deck he's building on his roof. We had a slight run in with some raccoons but it was amazing to sit quietly on the roof looking at the full moon. The guy is semi-retired. Owns and manages several buildings and spends winters in South America. And that bike... I think we may need a second date.

So it's time to think about strategy. I should send a thank you text message because he changed his mind about calling me when he dropped me off. At first he said he'd call me in the morning but then he decided he would let me call which obviously I'm not going to do. I just have to figure out the wording and timing of said text message. I could send it now but I think I'll wait til later in the morning. Or maybe I should wait til the afternoon. "Thanks, had a great time last night. Off to buy a wedding dress now. May need to be rescued from that". Apparently he has a thing about rescuing women.

Let the games begin.

The second date sounds promising. Stay away from the old 420 and you won't get so paranoid.

The apartment's only 230 sq. feet? That's like a prison cell. It would be too easy to step on a cat as one was dancing across one's livingroom. Did you omit a zero or is housing in Toronto that dense these days?

No that's right. It's small but very functional. I wish it was cleaner but that could be the anal-retentive talking.
