Pussy Pushers and other fine stories

A woman came into my store the other night. I couldn't hear what she was saying to my cohort, but they turned to me, and just as the steamer stopped steaming asked, "What about you?"

"I'm sorry, I could not hear you", I replied
"Do you want to adopt a cat?"

I explained to her that I don't have time for a kitty. She suggested that I get two. I explained to her that I don't think it right that I should get another cat while the ones I gave away still live. She agreed. then suggested that I rescue a couple of cats. I explained about how I am rarely home and do not think it right to adopt pets that I won't be around to take care of. She argued with me through the entire making of her drink and then a few minutes after.

After she left, I was reminded of a promise I had made to myself about not offering explainations. Putting that into practice is harder than I thought. Damn pussy pushers.

Still not enchanted with online match making. What part of 27 to 35 year old non christian within 20 miles doesn't make sense? I can say that one man that I have expressed interest in actually returned my email and we have been chatting these last couple of days.

After reading this post:

written by my friend Craig's friend, I started to rethink my strict stance on the whole "considers himself Christian" thing. then I got home and had a run in with another man on Match and well...Tis not to say that if I met someone who called himself such but had an open mind, like Joel (who was cute, actually, but that is neither here nor there), you know, someone like me who believes more than his label describes, that I wouldn't give it a shot. After all, I don't really want to date someone who is REALLY REALLY into Wicca either. Perhaps the time has come for me to discribe myself as "Spritual, not religious".

I guess it's all a moot point either way. At leat I am giving it a try.

I had more to say, but I have forgotten what it was. I am off to price new cages for the kid. It would be kind of nice to get something that rolls so she can move from room to room with me. I know that would make her happier. (she does not like to be picked up or carried, but she doesn't like it when I am not inthe room either.)

I think that sounds like a good plan. I think of you as definately a spiritual person. And very sensitive too.

Um, I just read the last week's worth of posts and I'm trying to figure out what kid you're buying a cage for. Are you babysitting?

GM, "spiritual, but not religious" is means something different to an independent fundamental Baptist.

We don't light candles, say rosaries, or kiss the ring of superiors, so we thing we are spiritual without being religious, too.

Because it means somethign totally different, why not just come out and say you are wiccan? Sure, it would cut down on the number of prospects you get, but why torture yourself with a hunk who won't date wiccans?

Sensei, it does say I am Wiccan. That is why I am so frustrated about it.
