Just a few lil updates.


I want to write ever so badly that I had a great time meeting Mr. Platform guy whom I've been wanting to meet for a long time now. I wished for a perfect hair day, had my outfit all picked out, I was going to make brownies.....and then try to get in the other million things I was going to attempt that night.

But there is an evil twisted messed up part of mother nature called Snow. I'm sorry to say that I didn't get to go anywhere & didn't get to him or go to any other party. I literally stepped into my parents house (I live with my parents) at 3:30pm on Friday night and have not left the house since then. I live in New York state about 20 minutes from the George Washington Bridge in NYC...I think snow has a secret crush on us. The weather channel forecasted about 10-14 inches starting 8am Saturday morning. It aggravatedly didn't get here til about 9pm that night, therefore wrecking all my plans. We did get about 8-10 inches by Sunday morning tho. I do like snow but truly only when it has snowed during the night & I then don't have to go into work. I work 5 minutes from my home but in snow it can take 30 minutes to an hour to get home.

BUT I did get to finally talk to Mr. Platform on the phone. He's cute on the phone, he answered within 2 rings. I don't know why but somehow we never talked on the phone in the 4 years we've known each other. This is a step to me. Small but a step. He was upset that no one could come to his party except his neighbors because I think he got more snow than me. He COMPLETELY understood & is TOTALLY going to Reschedule the party til after the New Year. I'm sad that I didn't get to go but I'm SO HAPPY he is rescheduling. =) This Platform story isn't over, it's just a lil post-poned. Sry.

I guess I'm going to have to wait some more...Ironically "Sleepless in Seattle" was on this weekend. Go figure.

On another note, does anyone ever watch those cleaning shows? You know the ones where they take everyone's clutter out onto the lawn, gutting the house, so you can actually really clean the house? My favorite one was "Clean Sweep". I really need to do that with Everything. Just lay it out on the lawn and do the "Toss, Sort, Keep". A new year is coming up and I have way too much on my plate. Everyday aomething else pops up. Even my Drummer Boy ex again tried to hang out with me. I'm not sure what he wants from me still. He wanted to go to lunch but I don't understand why out of the blue he's trying to come back in my life. I don't know if I'm even ready to have him back in my life as a friend or other. Wrong ex I wish would come back, ya know what I mean? But I declined because my street & parking lot wasn't even plowed yet. Stupid snow is messing up everything. It may even snow on Christmas, I hope not. I have alot of traveling to do throughout the day it would be a royal disaster if it snowed.

I did not put up a Christmas tree yet. I know. From being sick & the weather I didnt' get to go out and buy yet another one. I have til Wednesday. I will get a tree up. It just doesn't feel like Christmas this year. It's odd. Maybe I've been through too much to relax. Maybe I need to listen to the Christmas songs tomorrow at work & drive through the snowy town to feel it. To really feel the Christmas spirit. It's a goal of the week. To try...

In all of this, I tried. That's all anyone can ever do, is try. That's what I'm going to keep on doing.

Alas, one of my favorite actresses died today. Brittany Murphy. For years people have told me I looked like Brittany Murphy in Clueless. The big brown eyes, the curly hair, and the attitude. Every retail job I've had they called me "Tai". It's upsetting. She was an only child too. Her characters are so classic. She was funny & such a good actress. Poor thing. I hope she rests in peace. R.I.P. Brittany.

Melanie, I was so excited to hear about Mr Platform that when I saw you have a new post, I stopped what I was doing to read your post.

So sorry to hear about the snow and the postponement of the meeting. But the good thing is there's something to look forward to. I always see these events as signs. Blame it on my over-analytical self. Hahaha! Maybe the reason why the snow came at an inopportune time is that you are not yet ready to see him. Maybe you need the holidays to prepare yourself.

Still, it's a positive sign, the door was not closed. It's still waiting for you to enter it.

Big hugs!

Jennifer said...

Aw, I'm glad he plans on rescheduling and you didn't miss too much! Cannot wait to hear this final meeting! :D

Scientific Housewife said...

So sad she died so young!

Keagan said...

This Mr. Platform saga would make a good book....hope it has a happy ending for you!

Keith said...

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I greatly appreciate it. I wanted to let you know that I'm having trouble with my internet access right now. I'm not able to get online as much as I would like, but I did want to visit your blog. I hope you will have a great week. Cheers!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

When you said you couldn't go because of the snow, my heart FELL. I was so upset. LOL! I'm so happy he's going to reschedule though. That is very good news! :)

I am still very upset about Brittany's passing. It was SO unexpected. So young and to have cardiac arrest? It just doesn't make sense to me and it kind of scares me. I guess we can all go at any time, huh? Yikes. It's just weird b/c last week I overheard two people making a bet that another celebrity would pass away this year before 2009 ended. I guess it hasn't been a very good year to be a celeb. :(

Chessa! said...

ohno:( the snow ruined your plans...but you spoke with him and there is a meeting on the horizon. we can't wait to hear about it!

I watched SIS this weekend too...I love that movie!

As for Brittany Murphy, I was so sad to hear the news. She was my age. Very frightening. may she rest.

Little Ms Blogger said...

I had a feeling the snow was going to mess everything up this weekend with platform guy. I'm happy to hear he's rescheduling and you will be meeting him soon.

I love catching Clean Sweep, but have you watched Hoarders on A&E, tonight at 10 p.m.? If you ever needed motivation to clean, watch this show.

I couldn't believe Brittany Murphy died. I did a double take on the story because I thought the story headline read Actress turns 32. Duh...guess, just wishful thinking. I hate when anyone dies before their time.

DT said...

Oh! Its so sad to hear of that...


Thanks for the follow

jayne said...

well at least things are still good with platform guy! he sounds super sweet and definitely eager to meet you if he answered the phone so readily!

the Brittany Murphy thing is just really really strange...I suspect OD?

Bathwater said...

Am I the only one that wants to see you just call up this guy and say, "let's do dinner. Meet me on the platform. I'll be the girl with the ticket behind her ear."

Now that is romantic and spontaneous and I'd totally be there!

mart and lu said...

i hope you get to meet him soon! what a story you have!

JMay said...

Awww, it will be interesting to see what happens.

So sad about Brit...RIP.

Tights Lover said...

Toothfairy said...

JUST ME said...

Snow fucks everything up. Especially in New York. Slipping on a big pile of shitty brown snow in the middle of 1st Avenue?

Worst activity ever.

OceanDreams said...

Sorry your plans didn't work out but so glad that you were able to speak to him on the phone! Hopefully you will be able to "meet" soon. Hope you get in more of a Christmas mood love and glad you are feeling a bit better. Hang in there and I too am sad about Brittany Murphy!

LENORENEVERMORE said...

dang* sorry to hear about the date dear~
RIP Brittany, certainly a shocking & sad news.
Stay warm*

Tom Bailey said...

I hope your Mr. Platform story has the happy ending that you want it to. It is interesting how in some places wheather plays a role in canceling things. It seems like it has the makings for an interesting story. 4 years is a long time to know someone.

Friend in Fashion said...

agree - i hope the perfect ending to your story is waiting for you :)

Hey Melissa,
Sorry I haven't commented lately. I do read your blog, jsut too much to do these days. It's almost over.

I was so bummed to hear you didn't meet Mr. Platform guy ... but you know the saying, good things coome to those who wait ....

Why don't you guys just meet for coffee? Good luck ... keep us posted.

Sandy said...

OMG I can't believe I just did that Melanie! I was talking to Melissa at lunch and had her on my mind and what can I tell you ... too much going on in my ahead and apparently I can't keep up! And you share the same name with my niece who I just saw on Saturday. No excuse. I realized as soon as I hit the second "post comment" that I screwed up. YEESH!

Hermione said...

That's so exciting about mr Platform! Love the name:)
And so sad... It feels so unnecessary when things like that happen.

Blondie said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MEL!!!!!! I was so excited to hear the story about your love connection, only to find out that you didn't meet at all. Such a bummer. At least you got to talk on the phone. Can't wait to see what develops! Too bad about Brittany...so sad she was such a talented actress and special soul. Kori xoxo

Dustjacket Attic said...

Oh honey bummer about the snow and missing out...but hey it will happen.

So so sad about Brittany, really so young.

xoxo DJ

Heather Rose said...

I'm pretty sure Mr. P will wait. Hope he's as cute as he seems on the phone.

Ex boys are trouble, but you already know this. I hate trying to figure out what someone wants from me.

I loved Brittany Murphy. :(
