Day 312: Time to pack.. break out the wine!

Time to pack for another trip.

I feel like I’ve been gone most of the last month, but that’s not the case.

As much as I like to travel, I do need to slow down and stay put for a while.

With packing of course comes wine. Surely I’m not the only one who does this right?

I could however have wine on the brain after my lunch today.

We went to our favorite wine cafe for my fellow producer’s last day. It’s the same place as my date with Starbucks guy a few days ago.

It’s hard to go to a place like that for lunch, knowing you have to go back to work… especially when you have the next day off.

I toughed out and waited until I got home to pop the cork.

So here I sit, watching ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ seeing all these amazing dancers with such passion. It’s like a constant reminder for me to find my passion again. I guess it never hurts to have a weekly reminder.

While I’m watching they introduced a performance from the original broadway cast of ‘In The Heights’. I was instantly excited, because I saw the touring production a few months ago in Denver for work.

I know! Great job right?! I got to go to Denver to watch the production and interview the cast to preview their tour in my neck of the woods.

While I was watching I saw one of the guys I interviewed. It was so exciting to see him on national tv. I know it sounds weird. You’d think since I work in tv and meet famous people all the time, and hang out with people who are on tv, that I wouldn’t get excited to see someone I met on tv. But I was. I can’t explain it, because I certainly don’t understand it myself.

I really don’t get star-struck very easily. It pretty much has to be a sports personality for one of my beloved teams. I’ve met Charlton Heston for goodness sake! It was great to shake the man’s hand, but I didn’t even bat an eye. So why was I so excited to see Rogelio? I have absolutely no idea. Maybe because I feel like he’s a regular person because I’ve met him unlike the mythical figures that seem larger than life on the big screen.

While I sit here and continue to procrastinate packing (like every trip) I am thinking about where I was a week ago… which was visiting my new friend Fargo before his trip.

I thought for sure I’d hear from him today, but I guess I’m not so irresistable after all. Maybe my gut is off? I really thought, and I guess I still do a little bit, that I’ll hear from him again.

Even though I probably shouldn’t remotely give him the time of day. If he hasn’t had the inclination to even contact me in a week, he can’t be that interested, so what’s the point?

I suppose I should just tackle the boys at hand… Starbucks who is interested to a fault. Almost too much. He did back off a little from the 24 hours after out date, but I’m not interested and that means any contact is too much.

I need to let him know, but it’s so hard. I suppose I could probably keep evading him for another week because of everything I have planned, but I don’t think he’s going to go away without me telling him I don’t think we’re right for each other. It’s too bad, because he’s such a nice guy.

Maybe I can set him up with someone.
