Experiments

I decided to trial a book on my shiny new iPad to see how it faired as an eReader and I have to say I'm impressed! The book I bought (The Kane Chronicles) is available on all my Apple devices which is great although I still think I want the actual physical book too, I like that it's touchscreen (still don't know why I'm obsessed with this), it's really easy to use (very intuitive) and I love how the books.....



....ok,ok book....is displayed. I have yet to try it out in sunny conditions due to it being February and the fact that the Great British weather is pants currently but I'm hopeful, fingers crossed please peeps!

Today is going to be a very busy day, I have a Power Plate class followed by a Yoga class (the studio is closed this weekend for maintenance so I need to get my exercise fix/torture sessions squished into three days!), then I'm off to the Apple store on Regent Street for another "geek" lesson on what to do with my MacBook Pro (I know I've only scratched the surface with this wonderful thing), then I will be meeting the fabulous Amber for an afternoon of holiday planning and window shopping and then I have a date in the evening! Blimey! 

I have no idea what I'm going to wear, on the one hand I really want to dress up because I don't get to do it all that often and you all know I do love to dress up! On the other hand I don't want to be over dressed for drinks and maybe dinner with someone that, truthfully, I'm not overly excited about. I know that sounds awful and I do think he sounds/looks lovely but I don't know.....I'm just not overly enthused I guess.

"Why oh why are you going out on a date that you are only feeling luke warm about?" I hear you cry. To be honest I went on a few dates last year that I was incredibly excited about and got hurt/let down in the process, lots of people tell me that I have, maybe not unrealistic expectations but that I have a knack for picking people that are just completely wrong and then ignoring all the warning signs. So in an attempt to break out of this pattern I'm trying a little experiment*, my date tomorrow is someone that I have things in common with, he meets the height criteria (that rule I won't relax, I don't like feeling like a giant) and he looks lovely, honestly I don't know why I'm not excited but I know it'll be interesting at least. I think it's about time I try and break out of my comfort zone.....how long can I keep dating "bad boys" or widely inappropriate people for, especially if I profess to want an actual relationship? If nothing else I am looking forward to an evening discovering someone new and good conversation.......who knows I might like it! Wish me luck!

*I am aware this may all sound a little big headed and I am also well aware that on the flip side my date my not be wildly thrilled about meeting me. I'm not trying to dupe some poor unsuspecting smitten soul in anyway, we connected through a dating website so I believe we have similar expectations of the evening; a pleasant night out with a total stranger.
