Ode to Nick

Hey duckies. Recently my double-ex (my boyfriend before last) has been talking to me. Yes, I've been talking back and sometimes I initiate the conversation. But it just makes things all the more difficult. I still have feelings for him (they've depleted on) but I know better because those feelings will only lead to...breaking-up again. I must admit I am a difficult person to court. One day I could be the nicest person in the world and the next day I could be the most stressed-out biotch! But what disturbed me about our relationship was Nick's need for...affection. Our relationship was based on it. Plus, I'm physically bigger than Nick...he's so short

and that bothers me so much. I want to look up to my soul mate, not tower over them. (Maybe that symbolizes what I want in a relationship, someone to look up to, not someone I supersede.)

Well anywho, Nick is going to be up here (Connecticut) for his graduate school audition at Yale.

I haven't mentioned this but Nick is a big deal. He's a double major in piano and organ. I only date A-list men and Nick is pretty up there. He currently has a job playing for churches around the country and he basically has a job waiting for him after college...a phenomenal job. Nick was a good catch.

Anyway, Feb. 24th was his 21st birthday and he called me around 2am, drunk off his a$$, saying:

"Oh baby I love you. I wanna be with you. I'm gonna be in New Haven on Thursday. Come see me. Take a bus to New Haven and I'll pick you up. I wanna hold you all night...blah-blah-blah."

After close examination (well, until I heard he wasn't going to drive me back to campus...just to the bus station...not okay) I declined his invitation.
Dude went psycho.

"You're bipolar Gabriel. You need professional help. One minute you can be so nice, the next minute you're a bitch! Look for professional help and I'll pay for it. You need it."

(You duckies know how I feel about hiring people for's so A-list. I almost took up his offer for professional help just because it would be free.)
But it dawned on me that Nick was displacing his anger for not being able to persuade me to come over to his hotel to "show him affection." I told him he just made forgetting about him so much easier. I wish you the best duckie.

Wooohuh, enough about Nick!

There's an issue that's been bothering me for the longest. The University of Hartford doesn't take VISA any longer!

And guess what kind of cards are issued by Bank of America (which happens to be the only bank on campus)? VISA!

WTF?! Doesn't anyone else see anything wrong with this picture? In addition to this financial-sass if you do not have Bank of America, the ATMs on campus charge you an extra $2...on top of your withdrawal and what your home bank will charge you. Sometimes I only have $2 in my account so I'm glad I have Bank of America (lol sorry I like to shop). I'll get over it eventually.

In other news, yesterday was Ash Wednesday and I totally forgot until I stared at this girl's forehead, walking toward me, thinking she fell forehead first into dirt. My people-friend Alyssa calls it Catholic Hobo Chic. I call it...

Anywho, it's time for some "Words of Wisdom."

"Never chase after someone that runs away without hesitation. If something gives you blatant signs of not wanting to be with you, let them run off and miss your splendid offerings. It's hard to let go of what you know. But duckie, you're worth more than you think."

Penny: Thank you for becoming a follower of my blog and for being beautiful.
This day is yours! It's always a pleasure to be in the library when you're working. It makes me so happy that someone funny and efficient is on the staff.
Pete: Thanks for not letting me be the only gross one on campus.
Alyssa: A-list ('nuff said.)
Noelle: Happy 22nd duckie! You're so beautiful and I know amazing things are in your future. All I have to say is "Move that bus!" lol
Rockstar: We had a beautiful radio show today. I wish we had recorded it. (There's always next time.)
J Boys: Thanks for being your spectacular selves and thank you for stopping by the studio today.
It's been a long day and tomorrow is going to be just as magnificent. I wish you the best of happiness. Stay true duckies.

Peace, love & Obama,
