Boston Cream Pie
I haven’t been posting as much lately as I should. Everything is quite ordinary, which is excellent. I’ve been going on a few random dates, after taking November/December/January off from dating. I don’t know if I should have dated so soon after Matt and I breaking up. It distracted me from the massive emotional disturbance of the divorce, but I’m not sure if that was a good thing or not.
Nevertheless, things are going swimmingly around here. I’ve had a couple interviews for different (better paying) jobs at work, and on Friday, I have a second interview for one of them. Yay!
Last night I went on the worst.date.ever. He was 30 (but looked 40, poor guy), lives with his parents, has a degree in Liberal Studies, and he’s worked at Whole Foods for the past 8 years. He was so incredibly negative about everyone (customers at Whole Foods have the stupidest questions and treat the workers terribly *eye roll*); he wants a nice office job but no one will hire him, and it’s just not fair!!!! *Sigh*
But I had two fantastic dates this weekend with a lovely, lovely gentleman. He hasn’t pushed my boundaries even once. Usually people insist on giving me a ride home, since I don’t drive. He’s offered, but doesn’t insist when I say no. He hasn’t even kissed me yet (but gives great hugs). We haven’t talked about past relationships (which, honestly, I don’t want to know about them, and I don’t want to talk about mine), and we have a lot in common in regards to likes/dislikes/political views. He seems interesting.
I’m getting back into baking. For the past few weeks, I’ve made a cake on Sunday night to take to work on Monday. This week was a Boston Cream Pie – a request, because I would NOT have made that on my own. The glaze didn’t turn out right. It’s a bit too liquidy, and I should have used baking chocolate instead of cocoa powder, since the powder didn’t blend in quite right. Maybe I’ll try again in a few weeks.
