So, my aunt's brother-in-law brings a girl that he's dating by the booth. To say hi and show her what Carol does, or something.
Carol says, "Hello, are you the nurse?"
Loren blanches, his girl looks askance and says "No. I'm the realtor."
Perfectly normal conversation ensues.
Loren comes back later to tell us that they got 20 feet and he was asked, "So, who's the nurse?"
He says, "No one currently in the picture."
She says, "So, who is in the picture."
Carol apologized profusely for bringing up the extra girlfriends.
I asked Loren why he doesn't just mention to prospective new girlfriends that he is dating other people.
He says 'I don't think they'd like sharing."
And I say, "Yeah, but they already are. And people might surprise you."

In short, why is it okay to date more then one person and not tell them, and people look at you funny if you are openly doing so?

Things I am grateful for this second:
The Sims
My parents
Sika's computer
That I'm finished watching the V miniseries.

Just had both front tires replaced owing to the large gashes in one of them.
Tire guy calls to tell me that only 10% of my front brake pads are left, and it would only be about $150 to fix them....
The brakes will have to wait.
This means I shouldn't drive her unless absolutely necessary.
Would somebody please tell Orlando that I have given her more attention lately then I can afford?

My car will take approximately $1200 to start running again. Another $300 in what Dad deems are "necessary repairs". Then I will have to replace the front tires since there is a 2" gouge in the side of one of them (You can see the metal wall. That's kind of nifty)
Fortunately I have wonderful parents who are loaning me the money. And now I have to reassure Mom that I am okay. This will be difficult to talk about without crying for awhile.

I have such a huge crush on the band Lillix. Squee assures me that it's okay for me to have a crush on girls almost half my age.
