In case I end up a Lifetime cautionary tale:

Dear Readers, I'm going on a "daaate" tonight. I use the word daaaate because it's not really a date. I'm meeting one of the Plenty of Fish people for a drink. NO, it's not the married one. I've cut married guy loose, and I think he finally took the hint. This guy is a transplant from New Jersey. We haven't talked on the phone, but we've texted. He's funny. He thinks I'm "awesome" We'll see. He already has one major strike against him - No car. This is a problem and potential deal breaker. You all know how much I hate driving, so my future ex-husband needs to a) have a car and b) be willing to drive me all over the damn place - like, say Milwaukee? - I'm actually not really excited about it. There's another guy that I think I will ultimately like much better (he's an author!). But for karma's sake, I'm going to meet Rob. Got that? His name is Rob. I met him on Plenty of Fish. He's from New Jersey. So if I end up MIA or dead (not cooly zombie-fied, just dead) or something - you've got some intel for teh police. kthanksbye **plus, I have a much more important first meeting on Saturday that I'd really like to be alive for**

Why in the heck are you driving out here then?? You should take the train! Or I'll come and pick you up! That is if you survive your date... :)

Have fun, Von!! Rob is lucky!! And if he's turns out to be a dick, you can cry on my shoulder. :)

Lifetime cautionary tale? It seems there may be some room for parody there:

"Tonite on Lifetime: Mother, Can I Polka With Danger?"


...unless, of course, Von doesn't come back, in which case this is in incredibly bad taste and will likely result in a visit from Serious Men in Dark Suits.

Jennifer said...

I think Von has more to worry about from her Saturday plans...

Have fun tonight, Von!!!

Jennifer - I'm driving to your place because google says I can, and I'm trying to be a grown up and all!!
So excited about tomorrow!
Oh. My daaaate?
It was fine. Good, even. Nice guy. Probably not my future ex-husband, but could be funfornow. He said I'm awesome, and wants to see me again. And, he didn't kill me. UPside.
Z - I am ABSOLUTELY taking a train to Milwaukee (meaning the good land) this summer, and buying you a beer or three.
Tonight, on Lifetime "The Disappearance of Vonnie" (it's a REAL one!! Look it up! so funny)

we're not worthy! we're not worthy!

Jennifer said...

He said I'm awesome, and wants to see me again. And, he didn't kill me. UPside.

LOL!

That LOL was at the not trying to kill you being an upside... not that you're awesome.

And, at Google giving you permission. :)

I'm glad it went well. I was so out of it, I thought it was tonight...

I hope we have enough German bars for Von....

Von said...

Oh, German bars are great, but so are bars in general.

Please to be noting that mid-June will be a very good time for this. I mention this purely out of self-interest.

wake up, Von! Jennifer needs you!!

I hear that Beyoncé did a wonderful cover of Alanis Morissette at the Grammys, did you see it?

Von said...

Mandos. For real. C'mon.

Lauren said...

I totally want to know what authordude's name is. Or at least his book title. Or even just his publisher.

Brando said...

Glad this blog can still be known as "Von: Alive for Now".

Von said...

Lauren - I will email you that on real email.
Brando - LOL. :)
