Life and Times of Sasha Fierce

Archive for the ‘the Attorney’ Category

so, i made it to dc. yay! my BFF came down and helped and now i’m home. it’s nice, but very strange. essentially, i’ve gone from having 1,200 square feet of living space to now having approximately 350 square feet that i can claim as my own (my room + my very spacious closet!) – but its free and that’s definitely what i need right now. 

something hilarious happened. friday, as i’m packing, the Attorney texted me to ask if i wanted to hang out and get some drinks. i replied back, “oh wow. i could’ve sworn i told you…i’m actually moving to dc as we speak…” he writes back that he was out of the loop and now that he finally has time for a date it looks like it won’t happen. i’m like, um, hell NO it won’t happen. ass. i swear. did he seriously think i was just waiting around hping that one day he’d call?! maybe its me. maybe i project an “i’m so desperate you can make me wait 2 months for a date and i’ll still accept” vibe. hmmm. i guess its possible. either way, he finally got the point. oh, and then he sent me an email asking why i was leaving. i essentially wrote back “its personal and i don’t want to discuss it”. i swear. these men keep it interesting. 

speaking of men and interesting, when the Banker and i had dinner and he prompted me to tell him exactly why i cut him out of my life, one of the things i mentioned was him posting the fb album featuring his new NY chick (whom he claims isn’t his girlfriend – when he said this i just smiled and said “okay”. anytime he said something i thought was bullshit i just smiled sweetly and said “okay”). so i’m checking out his fb profile today (yes, i still do that…don’t act like you wouldn’t too!) and notice that the fb album is gone. interesting. 

last saturday i met a friend of a friend who was so cute (and i couldn’t remember his name) i decided his name was Cutie. Cutie is precious. and has been calling me everyday even though we only hung out 2x and the second time consisted of me drunkenly singing a wide variety of karaoke songs (everything from “baby got back” to “redneck woman” to “billie jean”). it’s so cute. and fun. although it won’t go anywhere because i’m not about to do long distance, it’s fun to get to know someone new. 🙂 

okay, so this is just TOO good. i’ve discussed the Attorney before and how we were supposed to go on a date but he was always so “busy” and so i just gave up and told him i wrote him off. and he seemed to truly think that i would wait forever. i think what he actually told me was “so if i were to ask you out in two months, you would say no?” and i was just thinking, you are so freaking arrogant! 

so the Attorney has made a few gestures at hanging out since then. but i’ve always been out of town. he invited me to lunch, a NYE party he threw, etc etc. but i’m always gone. so just today, i get a text asking if i’m free saturday. um, NOPE. i’ll be in DC. i haven’t told the Attorney i’m moving either, mainly because he insists on always texting and never calling, which i despise. i just think it’s hilarious that he’s ramped up his efforts and now it doesn’t matter and essentially is just too little too late.  

i’m just so over lazy ass men. i’m also over shady ass men. i really do not think it’s too much to ask for a man that is honest and actually will display some effort. as for the Banker, ugh ugh ugh.

last night, i went out with my girl (aka Socialite) and we had way too much fun. of course, that meant that i had way too much wine. so i sent the Banker a random text: “hey, what’s up” he replied: “u”. i asked what the hell that meant and he said: “just missing you.” yeah, i was about to vomit in my mouth a little as well. i asked why and he didn’t reply for a long ass time. as Socialite said, the silence speaks volumes. ugh. anyway. i’m glad i didn’t call him. Socialite did better than me and didn’t even text the lame ass dude she used to date.

so…what’s going to happen with the Attorney? um, i’m pretty sure absolutely nothing. i’m going to move to DC and leave all these lame men behind. AHS — are you working on my hookups yet?!

so we all know that i recently lost my job. we also know that bham is a teeny, tiny city in terms of “young professionals”… so i pretty much expected that the news would travel fast. but what i did NOT expect was the ridiculous, overtly tacky behavior that some people would employ.

a little background. about two months ago, i was hanging out with a couple of friends and one of them (AKA the Attorney) and i started discussing how one of my friends and a couple of his friends think that we should date. so of course then we start discussing the possibility. the Attorney says, “i’m going to take you out on a date. but i’m really busy with work and such and so it won’t be until after thanksgiving probably”. i’m like, okay, whatever. the Attorney is cool, so i’m open to the idea. well, the Attorney and i hang out a few times in groups with other people and i enjoy his company. but time passes, thanksgiving passes and no date. so i write him off in my head. a couple of weeks later, at a bar, i inform him that i’ve written him off. he protests and says things like “i’ve been busy, blah blah blah”. i just don’t ever buy that crap. if you are interested in someone, you do something about it. so the conversation continues and the Attorney says something akin to: “so if i asked you out two weeks from now, you’d say no?” when he says this, i can’t describe how my blood boiled. um, hell yeah i’d say no, you pompous jerk. ugh. the thing is, outside of this whole “dating” exchange, i really like the Attorney, so we still email now and again.

flash forward to this week. i’m certain the news of my good fortune has traveled to the Attorney. last night he called me and i missed his call (whoops! was playing Guitar Hero World Tour with my best friend from college [aka BFF]). today he called three times. now, keep in mind that prior to yesterday, he’s called me maybe ONCE. i have no doubt that he was calling to discuss what had happened. and that’s what pisses me off. 

could the Attorney really think that i would want to discuss it with him? um, newsflash, buddy: we aren’t friends like that. seriously? i swear, people. so i’ve consulted with a couple of folks and Agnes (very close college friend) said i should send a polite email about how i’m home w/my family and pretty busy. AHS (high school friend who i recently reconnected with) said i should just call him and point out that i think his behavior is tacky. sorry AHS, i took Agnes’s advice and sent a polite email. we’ll see.

oh and speaking of tacky people, the Banker sent me a text today seeing if i wanted to meet up for a drink. the Banker and i haven’t actually spoken in a couple of weeks, so i was surprised to get that text. of course, i politely declined. his response was that we need to catch up. meaning, he, too has probably heard and wants to know what’s going on. i swear, people are so freaking transparent.  

in other news, i am hanging out with AHS tomorrow afternoon and not quite sure what to expect. we weren’t really tight in high school, but i’ve enjoyed chatting with him as of late.  i’ve convinced him to drive out to the sticks (Bowie, where the Parents live) so we can take the metro together. i think the only reason he agreed is that he wants to meet the Dog, since i talk about her so freaking much. i sincerely hope that by convincing him to come to the Parents crib, i have not sentenced him to a half hour of awkward conversation with Dad.  here’s hoping! i believe AHS and i are headed to the chinatown area of dc. not very familiar with it, so i’m looking forward to it. have i been a total typical girl about it and gone over my outfit 40x? surprisingly, no. not sure what that means. i always thought AHS was cool back in the day, and that doesn’t appear to have changed, so i’m really looking forward to seeing him.
