So Many Men

I would finish the title by saying “so little time” but there’s a ton of time. Time, my friends, is all I have. I am so drenched in the Sea of Men right now that I literally cannot keep them straight. I must go in order.

CL#1Writer: We have a date for Friday evening after his holiday party. We’re aiming for 9:00.

CL#2BlueEyes: He emailed me and said that he left me a voicemail. I never got a voicemail, nor do I see any missed calls. What is strange is that I know he’s not lying because I have that Verizon Ringback tone and he named the song I have. He’s supposed to call back tonight.

CL#3TextTormenter: We are still emailing back and forth and have tentatively scheduled plans for this weekend as well.

Now, I know what you are thinking, “Velvet, how in the hell are you going to see the above three men (if CL#2BlueEyes wants to try to get together) in one weekend?” Well, I’m not. I’m going to see four men because the other stupid It’s Just a Nightmare dude who didn’t show up last week is scheduled for Saturday at like, 7. I’ll be outta there by 8:30, max. So see, technically I still have Saturday night open as well as Sunday. Do not discount Sunday as a viable date night.

But, I have to fill up my Saturday night soon because of this email I received from my Dad:

Velvet, I checked DC Greeks and see that there is a dance-party on Saturday night December 17 at 10:00 P.M. right around the corner form your condo at Andalu, 1214 18th Street NW. Think about it. Love, Dad

Why must he torture me so? After the last Greek I dated, I’m forever scarred. I told him I would not be going, but I would feel better if at least I had some decent plans so that I could say, “I’m sorry I didn’t make it to Greek Geek Night, but, I had a date with the hottest millionaire.”


  1. Stef

    Wow, girl, you’re on fire! Good luck juggling the schedule this weekend, and I hope they aren’t all a total bust. Your courage is admirable. 🙂

  2. Velvet

    Au contrarie Stef, I DO hope they are a total bust! Me loves bad dates. Ok, maybe once I want one to be normal and decent.

  3. Kristin

    I totally read that too fast. I caught “DC Geeks” instead of “DC Greeks” and I was really wondering about your dad.

  4. Washington Cube

    Good luck with all of the dates. Thanks for the mention of the Greek dance party. I know a Greek guy, so I sent that information his way in case he hadn’t heard. If you read my blog, he is the one who went on that date with the really weird saxophone playing girl.

  5. Rhinestone Cowgirl

    Why, oh why are you giving the It’s Just Lunch guy another shot? He should be eliminated after standing you up last week.

  6. Sharkbait

    AHHHHHHHHHHH dc greeks!!!!

    I am not even going to go there because you know where it will lead! 🙂

    Glad you are keeping busy my dear. And I miss you-seriously.

  7. Rhinestone Cowgirl

    You know, I call and call you, but it’s always “date this” and “boy #2” that. Honestly. I’m starting to feel like I’m coming in second to your boys.

    K – When I first slipped up and told my dad that such a site existed, he thought I said “Greasy Greeks” which would also fit the bill to me!

    Cube – I missed that entry. I wonder if I dated him.

    RC – I fully feel that the It’s Just Lunch people are so inept that they messed it up, not him. But don’t think I’m not gonna ask him!

    Sharkie – I miss you too! Let’s go out! But not to a Greek event.

    RC – Shut up you!
