C'est la vie

I've eliminated one possible person from the Mystery Person candidates. Well, he eliminated himself really by not being ticked off at me. Yay! I am relieved but still perplexed. I also shared the story today with two other people who were basically surprised that my response had been impolite. (unintentionally so! my brain had ceased functioning for awhile!) We discussed putting up posters of a faceless person and a hat with the caption reading "help us put a face on this .. face" or something like that. It's funny in a really sad way. I can't even apologize or explain! If I see the person again, I will have no idea that I'm looking at him. Unless he is wearing the hat. Welcome to my life!

Oh, and I found out today that I won't be going to The Slackers on the 18th after all. L. is leaving for Connecticut on the 18th and not the 19th. Good thing I haven't bought the tickets yet!

The Walk for Hunger: 2011

It's that time of the year again! On Sunday May 1, I'll be participating in Project Bread's The Walk for Hunger for the 20th year. I'm hoping to raise $500 in donations. :) Donations are tax-deductible. Any amount will help.

I know not everyone can make a donation, but every dollar counts. It really adds up!

Many thanks in advance!

Lousy Weather and Other Things

Yesterday was snowy. I left work an hour early. Today was "mixed" (snow early morning followed by icy rain the rest of the morning), and the office was closed. I went into work to reschedule the afternoon, and the sidewalk on the main street was ice. Tomorrow will not be much fun getting to work, but I'm inside, warm and dry, today. That's all that matters at the moment.

I'm still obsessing about my face failure a few weeks back, but it's less about solving the mystery now and more about .. I need to just move on. One way to move on, with my life in general .. I'm actually considering those online dating services. The worse that can happen is I get a bit of a personal life. I really can't stop thinking about the fact that the random person might have been my recent crush, and I totally blanked on him. I haven't seen him (that I know of!) in over a month or more, and T. is probably right. He's not interested in me - never has been; he's just friendly. If by some chance he had stopped by the office, he will undoubtedly think I'm a jerk for not recognizing him, and then he'll no longer be friendly when I see him. Or he won't be bothered by it at all. Friendly or not, I must stop wasting time wondering and trying to bump into him since it's getting me nowhere, stuck in limbo. It's part of the reason my brain had shut down when the mystery person stepped in.

Luckily, a very exciting project has come my way, and I'll be focused on helping Sharifa during P7d's post-production final stretch. This opportunity is an even better way to refocus myself and move on. :D The tricky part will not be jumping ahead and simply sticking to each task as it's presented. Can't wait to see the final cut!
