for the first time EVER in my life i was stood-up last night. he didn't call. i haven't heard from him since Tuesday. what a jackass. here's my list of possible rational explanations that caused him not to call:

1. he's an asshole who only wanted to get into my pants and upon discovering that, ha, that wasn't going to happen he decided i wasn't worth his time.

2. he's an asshole.

3. he went to the bathroom. dropped his cell in the toilet and couldn't call me because his phone is dead and he can't get a new one until the weekend. which of course begs "why not just send me a facebook message?" well he didn't because his Internet is down so he can only go online at work and work has been crazy crazy crazy. which leads to:

4. he's been soooo very busy with his crazy crazy crazy job that he can't get a moment to shoot me a text that says he's super busy and wasn't going to be able to make it.

5. he's an ASSHOLE.

i think the worst part is that i liked him. there was nothing really wrong with him that i couldn't deal with. he was great. oh well. maybe he'll show back up in my odd little life.

but I've sworn off dating. I'm DONE. so i guess if i hear from him I'm going to tell him that sure we can hang out but i am going to call him on his standing up of the Brynne.

the curse of ben folds

The man to my left and I have had an interesting run. Everytime I have gone to see Ben Folds the friend I would take with me wouldn't last much longer as my friend.

The first person I took to see Ben was my first college roommate Andrea. This was probably the best Ben experience I've had to date. I got to meet him which was awesome! About a month later we requested a room change and I moved in with Crazy Lexi (I don't talk to her either) and that was that. I never spoke to her again.

The second person I took to see Ben was my friend Christy, from Crossroads (the on capus coffee shop we both worked at). This was a pretty great night. Our friendship went sour after the school year was over. She just kind of dropped out of my life. I don't miss her at all. She was an anorexic and wouldn't admit it.

The last person I took to see Ben was my ex-boyfriend, Zack. We were working on being friends (with benefits). He really wanted to see Ben; I ALWAYS want to see Ben. It was at the Bowl. Ben sang "Bitches Ain't Shit" and the old people in front of us cringed the whole time. It was really a good night. Two weeks later Zack and I had the fight to end all fights. I told him I hated him (it was true). I don't hate him anymore. I don't feel anything towards him anymore.

This time around, I'm seeing Ben all by my lonesome. It's the only thing that makes sense. It'll be me and Ben and it'll be amazing. I like all the friends I have right now and don't feel like sacrificing anyone to the curse. So that's how it is. That's where it's at. Ben Folds + Brynne = special good times (by special good times I mean "losing friends who kind of sucked anyway").
