This whole computer thing is totally stressing me out. This new computer is charging me an arm & a leg. I truly think it's going to be a great machine & very worth it...but still. Everyone has me second guessing myself. I have a few pc expert friends, & they all think I am getting majorly screwed. I have no way of knowing if that's true. Even Eric, while being a bit nicer about it, thinks I COULD be getting screwed, but COULD be getting a good deal for what I am getting. I just don't know. Regardless...the money is spent. So perhaps I have just learned a very expensive lesson. I am sure, however, that I will love this new machine...and I'd better.
Things seem to be going well with Eric. Things are progressing nicely. He came to see me perform at Knott's on Saturday, & didn't make too much fun of me. That's a good sign. He & Reggie had a good time hanging out at Knott's. They rode all the good rides, & after work, Eric came home with me. He was really, really tired because he didn't get much sleep Friday night (had a bad stomachache), so we went to sleep at 9PM. I woke up around 6, then 7:30, & finally got out of bed around 8. I left him sleeping while I took a shower & got ready for bed. He was practically comatose, in part due to the Benedryl he had taken before going to bed. I know that little pill will knock me out for a minimum of 12 hours! So I drove him to his parent's house, where his car was. He said, "Well, if you are in this area later & want some company, give me a call. Otherwise, I will just stop by your house tonight." I didn't get out of work early (thought I might due to rain), so he just came over around 8PM. He was so sweet...he worked on my pc for several hours. I was so excited to be able to check my email again...and when I logged on a particular screen name, I had many emails from guys from Hot or Not. I think that bothered Eric a bit...but he's the one who said he didn't know if he wanted a committment yet. He can't expect me to rule all other guys out while he's deciding. So later, when I went to check my Eudora mail, he said he was going to get a drink while I "read all the emails from my boyfriends." :-) Later, when he told me he couldn't stay over, I said, "Whatever....I know you have to get home to your other girlfriends." First, he said, "I don't have any girlfriends." And then he caught what I said (unintentionally), & turned to me, highly amused, & said, "OTHER girlfriends?" as if I implied *I* was "A" girlfriend, & he would be seeing his "other" ones. Ooops. I swear, I didn't even realize what I was saying.
