t-ra: lose,find,repeat

also on twitter, untappd, & words with friends as tamarasabine
Two different people have told me I am glowing tonight. I have no idea what that's about. I didn't even exfoliate. Weird.
Preggo??? - Steve C
Ha! I know, but definitely not. I have no idea. Maybe I'm coming down with something? It's a strange thing for two random people to say. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
Maybe it's a certain aloofness that's come with your recent decision. - Not Me
Anyone else find it odd we're watching a #hockey game between a team from Texas and another from California? Just me? Ok.
I find it very odd anyone is watching hockey. The playoffs just started that means there are 6 months left before ya need to pay attention to hockey. - Steve C
Really? I don't know anything about it other than it's on at all the pubs lately. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
NHL playoffs are ridiculous practically every team and their dog makes the playoffs kind of makes the regular season irrelevant. But there is less fighting which I find a positive. - Steve C
All I know is, I think I like hockey all a sudden. So I am just trying to wrap my mind around that. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android

This is my reminder to myself to download the Shakedown song by Bob Seger.
You're busted! - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
Let down... your guard... honey! Just about the time you're thinkin it's all right... shakedown, takedown... you're busted! - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
This is my anthem for the evening. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
oh lordy. y'all want to hear about some nonsense? remember that email I didn't send? well, I sent it. funny how a simple act can shift your whole perspective on a thing. I was so worried about it, and now I realize I give not a single solitary flying fig about it now. My conscience is clear. And good grief, people and they drama!
SO. Background: I've been bummed about the romantic fiasco since February where the dude "wasn't ready to date" then I saw him out with a girl several times... remember that? Well, for some reason I couldn't shake the shitty feeling of it and it got me thinking about my issues and deciding not to date right now, etc. But it was still bothering me, a lot, so part of my therapy homework recently was to monitor "The Three," those indicators of whether a thought pattern is in fact problematic or just temporary mood-based passing phase kinda thing. Turned out is was problematic so I buckled down to figure out why. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Turned out part of what bothered me so much, aside from my usual paranoia trigger stuff, was that I liked this girl. We are more than mere acquaintances, having had several deep personal conversations over the years. She was the kind of person I was glad to see and would usually end up hanging out with when we were at the same place. So it bothered me that my feelings about her changed due to the lame behavior of some dude, and I didn't want that. (You may recall, I mentioned I had avoided her a few times.) - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
As a result of that reflection, I decided to write her an email explaining that my acting differently towards her lately had nothing to do with her, that I thought she was a cool person and I valued our friendship as it's been thus far, and didn't want it to change. Lady friends come first and all that. Also being very clear that I don't want to know anything about whatever is between them becasue it is none of my business, just simply to acknowledge I had been weird and apologize. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Welp. not half an hour later I receive an epic text message from the dude, who mind you has been radio silent since the first time I bumped into them, about how he didn't intentionally disrespect me, he's sorry for not communicating with me all this time, he hopes we can be friends because it's a small town and we're bound to bump into one another (yeah no shit!), but he understands if I don't want to be friends as a result of his behavior, how this apology is long overdue, etc. etc. etc. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
meanwhile I get an email response from her and it is all over the frickin place. going on about her dating adventures juggling three guys, including one WHO IS CURRENTLY DATING A MUTUAL FRIEND OF OURS, and this guy SINCE DECEMBER! and she had a feeling something was up with me but didn't want to pry, figured it was probably about this guy though she wasn't sure. Then something about how they are just friends "if that helps." - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
In summary: I think both of these people are kinda nuts, and I am not interested in having any personal dealings with either of them beyond common courtesy. And whatever I was bummed about is only in relation to an alternate universe where I thought one or both of these individuals was worth the time and energy I have already expended on this. Here in this Universe, however, that is clearly not the case. Done and done. Dodged a bullet, possibly two. People are crazy y'all. CRA. ZY. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
What the hell not their responses but your ability to pinpoint the self confusion is awesome! - Janet from FFHound!
What Janet says. Also, hooray for communication. it can be SO CLARIFYING!! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
inorite! It's pretty amazing how with one swoop I settled my personal karma, got some very enlightening information about both of their characters, and completely rid myself of any fucks I could give about it. BOOM! - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Wow. I had a very similar experience earlier this year. Isn't it nice when people show themselves to be a flaming mess so you can choose whether or not you want to continue interacting with them? - Corinne L
Aaand she's at the bar I just walked into. The Universe is having fun with me. It's cool. Ima play nice. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
just got a call from my mom all weepy to tell me my kid brother and his wife are expecting. she was so excited, she couldn't finish a sentence about how excited she was for choking up with emotion. her first grandchild.
what's really cool about it is that they flew down to Florida for a visit so they could tell her in person. because my kid bro got class like that. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Nice thing to do. And I remember how happy my mom was when we told her. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
That's awesome of him. Congratulations to them and you, soon-to-be aunty. :-) - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

Sigh. I said out loud I shouldn't be dating for awhile, so now it's real. I think crushes from afar and flirtations are okay. Just no dating or relationship seeking or anything like that. I know it's the best thing for me right now, but I am still bummed about it for some reason.
It's a good thing to realize this early before it's too late. I'm in a similar boat and had to hurt a couple of feelings to extricate myself once I made the same realization. - Akiva
Thanks, akiva! I have some work to do before I can take any more emotional risks. I honestly thought I was ok, but the last fiasco was too much. Clearly I am not in the right frame of mind for whatever reason. Time to get my house in order before I invite guests. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
Hugs to both. - Janet from FFHound!
Watch. Ima meet someone and challenge this decision. Because that's how shit goes, que no? - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
Keep an open mind but do what's right for you in the long term. - Akiva
I hear you, girl. *fistbump* - Corinne L
When in doubt, follow your nose.
It always knows! - Spidra Webster
Oh no. A loud person wearing a lot of perfume just sat down next to me at the bar. Time to go to the bathroom.
Without leaving your seat? That'll get rid of ol' stinky perfume lady. - Steve C
PSA: don't tell the dude at the bar watching the #hockey game that the players look like a bunch of cats batting a catnip toy around.
I'll be the first to admit that forgetting about #hockey 11 months out of the year is irresponsible of me. These gentlemen are hella sexy.
Wait till you see their smiles. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Also, I heard last night that UGA has a #hockey team. If that's true, I may actually go to a college sports event sometime.
RT @bagoflazers: "What time are you playing?" - Athens GA's most pointless question. #athensGA #musicianprob #musicians

Ack. Chemical engineer guy is at the show I just got into by accident. Dang.
I'm gonna need trading cards so I remember who's who here. - Spidra Webster
All he has to say is how drunk I was at the beer festival and how he owes me a beer for losing a bet. Not exactly a stellar review. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
A mutual friend, married w a kid, vouched for the guy. Called him 'an angel'. So I dunno. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
What Spidra said. I will accept a spreadsheet in lieu of trading cards. - Corinne L
I'm not following... I'd be happy to make a spreadsheet, or trading cards for that matter. That could be fun! someone remind me who the players are though. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat

Holy shit! Ok, so whatever else, I am here right now to help this girl get some help. Like, I don't know what just happened, but the Universe clearly has an agenda here.
I'm a little weirded out bc I'm buzzed from happy hour. So I am trying to focus. She just decided to open up to me and I want to be helpful. It came out of nowhere though. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
Uh, she just called another woman the c word, so we're done now. Good G–d, get me outta here! - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
The *c* word is a deal breaker for me too. - Janet
Guy at pizza shop: how does a twenty something know all the words to a Men at Work song? Me: I'm 39. Him: well, shit.
And I have to listen to 'we built this city' for the umpteenth time. Ugh.
I just exercised my First Amendment right to publicly express my disgust about #partydownsouth taking over my town and it felt damn good.

Say what you will, but the close up shot of the guy w a nose bleed just sold me on the hockey game.
Stanley Cup playoffs and a Braves game... basically dude sports heaven at the pub.
I may not ever send that email, but I feel better just having written it. Which is good, b/c my mental health homework is due tomorrow. I want all the gold stars!
kept thinking a hair was in my eyes so swept my hairs back under my hat a bunch of times, then realized it was an inch worm hitched onto my hat and dangling in front of my glasses! tried to take a picture, but the webcam couldn't focus on it.
inchworm...inchworm...dangling from t-ra's hat... - Big Joe Silence
