something i've been pondering

Monday, February 11, 2008

there are a few people that i "know" but don't really "know", that i recognize from going out a lot in the downtown areas - warehouse district, ohio city, tremont, etc. we may or may not have attended a late night or two together, may or may not have also day drank on random saturday or sunday. but these specific characters that i am describing i see everywhere i go. even the most random work networking events.

my roommate bird and i started calling these people everywhere guys, please forgive the not overly creative title - i think we were a couple of martinis deep when we came up with it. anyways, we would see these guys over and over again, it was seriously getting out of control. bird and i would just look at these characters raise our fists in the air and say blast! the everywhere guy strikes again!

the breaking point was last summer when someone called ME an everywhere girl.

me?

never!

unfortunately though it may make sense. do these everywhere guys see me as an everywhere girl? is this a good or bad thing? am i just a good networker or a party hound?

i am pondering the topic now (completely randomly) because i simply don't see myself as an everywhere girl anymore. i don't go out as much in the winter. basically february sucks and i'm at the point where i think i miss being an everywhere girl (gasp!). i want see those everywhere guys. i'm yearning to roll my eyes and say, there's that d-bag again, because then it will mean that it is warm out and i'm sitting at the batters eye during a tribe game, or i'm dancing at velvet dog on a sunday night. oh the good times.

i'm officially over february. march and st. patrick's day can not come soon enough.

    Back in the day we use to call the people you speak of LOUNGE LIZARDS and think "DON'T YOU PEOPLE HAVE HOMES"Then of course we realized,we were them!From then on we started referring to them as "A NODDING ACQUAINTANCE".

  8. Everywhere guys....everyone knows what they are! I wish I could describe a few of the everywhere guys, but I won't because they are probs reading this. And I love the "raising our fists and saying blast"! Made me laugh!
