Don't be all judgy if he likes contemporary pop music. I found it took years for me to develop a taste for Charlie Parker. The first album I bought was Abba's Greatest Hits and I turned out okay and able to enjoy Up on the Sun by the Meat Puppets.

Well THAT album is a rare gem.  It's proto-grunge doing Grateful Dead and *meaning* it.  This needs all purpose music post.

Definitely learning a lot about how little people function.  It's been a tough few days but we're rolling with it.

The ward here is funny.  Full of tired looking guys 20-40 with the same exhausted/determined look on their faces.  I expect they would probably look 'hot' to most women, so there's maybe a magazine article in this.  They're definitely in it for the long haul.

We're semi-private which is not as bad as it sounds as the entire floor of the hospital is a writhing pit of hormones and milk splatter anyway, ie there isn't much privacy or much to hide anyway.  Our room-mate snores.  Also, sadly, she doesn't seem to have a guy helping her.  She had a young lady stay over for a day or so, and there was a sheepish looking dude, young like her, but mostly just her and baby. :(

This week's Stale Male Fails included...

---

 ...Stale Steve puts his lunch in the microwave, I hear a bunch of beeping, and he wanders off.  A couple of minutes later he goes back and says "Hey, how come my lunch is still cold?" and Ted Technician says "you just set the clock to 3:33."

---

 ...he goes up to Technical Sales Tom and Good Boss Greg and says "hey, we've got a customer asking what delivery is for Product X. Can I quote him 3 months?"   Tom and Greg explain that Product X is low priority and there are a lot more pressing things in line ahead of it, and it's basically so far down the list that we can't even estimate when it'll be ready, this sort of thing.  Steve listens to all this, and says "ok. I'll just tell him 3 months."   Tom and Greg both shout at him, almost in unison: "DON'T QUOTE HIM A DATE!!!"  And Steve is like "oh, okay, I just figured, I'd take whatever engineering tells me and double it, HA! HA!" and wanders off. 

A moment later Engineer Ed sticks his head above his cubical wall and does basically this face:


---

So many conversations that start out with "Question for ya:"

---

So many unfunny jokes, followed by that same annoying "HA! HA!"   On Monday Ted Technician wanders by and says "is it Friday yet?" and Steve shouts "Ted! Don't get ahead of yourself! Ask if it's Wednesday yet! HA! HA!"   Like... that's not even remotely funny or clever. I just felt very sad for him.

---

On the bright side, he has not been bothering me personally as much.  Also no creepy interactions this week.

One of the bartenders I see a lot has been very flirty the last few times I've been through.  She's very ... sensual. The way she walks, the way she leans over the bar when she talks to you, the way she stands while she's mixing a drink... somehow everything she does just seems suggestive.  Monday she came and sat in the stool next to me and leaned into my personal space while she asked about my day, about work, and the usual things. It wasn't so much the questions as her posture, closeness, several touches, and the eye contact that made it feel ... intimate.  Thursday I stopped in for a quick drink on the way to my hair appointment, and when I was almost done my drink she came up behind me and ran her fingers up and down my back as she leaned over me and asked if I wanted another drink.  It made my heart beat quicker.

My brain is telling me that she's heterosexual and is probably like this with all her customers. My heart, and parts below my heart, are hopeful that there's more to it than that.   I've made a fool of myself before by misinterpreting signs women were giving me and it's extremely embarrassing. I am not ready to go out on the limb yet.


OMG OMG this might actually be happening!  She gave me her business card for her day job!  I think she wants me to contact her!

OMG OMG what do I do now???

And then tell us about it in vivid detail the next day.
