i picked up this dream in catholic school

so although i am currently not dating it hasnt stopped me from trying to set other people up. it works for some people. i personally take credit for two happy couples and one unhappy couple (sorry about that). so today i thought i should set up "stacey" and "steven". i dont know why. i just thought i am sick of work is there anything else to do? (i usually check out ebay or go get a coke). but not today. so what happened is i texted stacey and said hey do you want to get set up with my friend and she said yeah and i texted steven and said do you want to get set up and he said yeah. so i gave steven stacey's number and i washed my hands of the whole thing and left it to fate/hormones. but then stacey decided that she had been set up on a lot of bad blind dates and just wanted to meet steve before they ate dinner together. you know a predate (code for i want to see if he is cute). so her master plan was he could come by her house with me and we could hang out. i said....hmm yeah let me ask steven. so then she said maybe he could fix my computer. and i said... yeah let me ask. so i told steven and he said he would go (he also said ouch she doesnt trust you AT ALL) but i said i thought about it and i didnt want to go watch him fix her computer and talk about their interests and mutual friends (me). i know all about their interests and me. its sounds both boring and uncomfortable. i think i would feel just as awkward watching people try and date and if i am going to go through that then maybe i will just date myself. not date myself like take myself out but go on dates myself.

anyway a lot of people are weighing in and said i should go with steven. but i have been watching a lot of top chef lately and i dont think i have time.

i think the answer is very clear. top chef is never awkward and never boring (which can be said of most shows on the BRAVO network). watching people decide if they want to go out with eachother is both of those things.

i think it WOULD be kind-of funny if their pre-date turned into their actual date. let them think you'll be there to ease them into it but then say "surprise! i'm taking the training wheels off before you get a chance to try out the bike."

besides, if they both know this "meeting" could and probably will turn into a date, is there really a point? Even if she doesn't think he's cute, isn't she somewhat obliged to go out with him at least once now? She did agree to it already and if she backed out after meeting him, that would just be mean

i think its awesome that she turned it into a favor predate. it sounds like something i would do. now i dont want dinner but if you could somehow manage to lift something heavy its on.

You have so much potential to really mess with their heads, maybe invite someone else over, you know like one of your hot married friends to fix your computer tell them to just answer to the name of steven. Then send steven out for some tacos. Then just when everything seems to be going well...SURPRISE! That's NOT the steven you're going out with, this is the steve you're going out with, and he brought tacos.

Wanna make tacos on Sunday?

ck said...

brilliant!

natali said...

i always want to make tacos. especially on sundays.

becky said...

i would rather you made enchiladas

natali said...

my enchiladas are really good. i have been toying with a new recipie (in my head). its pretty good so far (in my head).

Colls said...

nat will you please set me up on a pre-date? i mean you are so good at making enchiladas and wallpapering and quilting and drinking coke...i want to give your sets ups a try.

natali said...

sure. or i will set you up on a maybe date. which is what i went on yesterday. a maybe date happens when you spend the whole night saying maybe i am on a date?

Colls said...

actually will you set me up on a dream date? this is where i would win a date with tad hamilton.

becky said...

and nat, could you set ME up on a date with colls?

natali said...

i will ask colls about it but i dont think you are her type...she only has eyes for me.

Colls said...

wow this is all going according to my plan...pre-dates, dream dates... training wheels, training pants..

becky said...

"i will ask colls about it but i dont think you are her type...she only has eyes for me"

i think we both know this is not true.

Colls said...
