Awake again

Last night I was able to fall asleep shortly after I posted.  I was sneezing again this evening and took a benadryl at 8:30.  And I’m still awake.  I tried going to sleep about 30-40 minutes ago, but just can’t get my mind to shut down.  I don’t know what my problem is.  I should go ahead and talk to my doctor about it. 

I went to Amarillo and got some labels and file crates to use at school.  I had a $15 off coupon for purchases over $50 but my total came to $49.97.  So I added a candy bar to get the $15 coupon.  I then went to Applebees for dinner and had some steak fajitas.  They were decent, but not the best I’ve had.  I came home and covered my two kitchen stools with fabric, caught up on blogs, watched some House Hunters and then waited for the benadryl to kick in.  I played a game of rollercoaster tycoon and then tried to go to sleep.  I’m yawning now, but I don’t think I can fall to sleep at the moment.  So I’m up blogging instead.

I still haven’t heard from Matthew.  I haven’t even been checking my stuff.  I canceled the eharmony account when my subscription was up.  I’m just tired of this whole dating process.  Sure, I’d like to date again.  I like being in a relationship and having someone to talk to, but I don’t like the multiple hoops one has to jump through to get there.  I guess I should just focus on other things.  Besides I generally only attract weirdos, perverts and dirty old men.  Sad, but true. 

Guess I’ll try some web surfing until I think I can go to sleep.  I’ve got to do something about this before school starts.

Old Knudsen is not here. You want him to come over? :)
But your experiences with all that online-dating may be similar to those of others, you read Ponita for example - she's a bit in the North and also has tried the online-dating.

I am sorry, I have no answer or idea. I also have no experience with online dating, but I think it is a kind of database and a logarhythm looks for "matches", these are defined somewhere, btw according to what criteria? I mean when a lady says I want to meet someone who is at least 5 feet tall even the simplest programm can filter out men who are at least 5 feet in highth (is that large?).
But what about other factors?
Does a man write "I am a sensible guy who loves flowers?" Without going into details, I think you know what I mean: It's the self-image/imagining of men, somewhere between Rambo and St.Francis, a lack of self-reflexion, and a strange communication - better: way of communicating.
I hope your day was relaxed - how long is still vacany? And I hope you can sleep.

By the way and totally unrelated - why did J. of the 4th Avenue Blues go private? I do not come by there as often as I did some time ago, but since last week or so it's private.
Hey Jonathon - if you read this, drop me a line. Sorry for using your blog as a black board, Annabel.

Sorry, a bit uncoherent ... I was disturbed.

I think the online "matching" system is really a load of rubbish - eharmony always matched me with outdoorsy type people and rarely the intellectual type. There's no "matching" with - you just browse other people's profiles, but there's not a lot to choose from and it seems the guys I've contacted on there have been a bit too particular. So I'll let the last subscription run out and get on with life as a single person. Not my ideal, but it is better than the alternative of dating the wrong person!
I have officially 4 more days of vacation before I go back to work on Monday. It's coming too fast!
