"A"s eviction

OK, so "A" must have post-poned his eviction by sending in a bad check. His landlord called and left him a voice mail about the bounced rent check.

"A" called me to discuss requirements to move in. Good news is that this means he won't be doing as much illegal things and perhaps this will make it extra hard to date an underage girl. Bad news is that he's moving in.

I've given him the "requirements" - job or school, help out occasionally, stop breaking the law.

Wish me luck (well, ok, him too) but I know I'm going to need it!

Not sure I have much of interest to say

But, let's see if I can't come up with something.

"A" is still dating the 15 yr old. She's sweet, but he doesn't "GET IT" that it's wrong and if her dad gets pissed it doesn't matter that she's sweet and the relationship is consensual. Ah, well. His life.

"a" is doing well as always, but he wishes that it was still Halloween. I've brought up the whole, it'll be Christmas before you know it... but he still keeps hoping for Halloween.

Me - I'm not losing weight - although not trying as much as I should be. I've been missing out on the gym for a couple of weeks now - and I seriously miss it. But, I'm focused on getting the house cleaned up again (after a sick weekend in bed, followed by three nights of pre-menstrual cramps -- so "a" managed to make enough of a mess that I really am now struggling to get caught up. It wouldn't have been so bad, but I am still trying to catch up with laundry. I'm down to just finishing up the dining room and have a mess in front of the tv that "a's" managed to spread out with candy wrappers and juice boxes and lord knows what else.

I'm crushing on a guy from work... he's kind of cute - really, really intelligent... sometimes he puts his foot in his mouth and is a little rough around the edges. I don't work directly with him - but he helped out a little this last summer, and I keep him "posted" on various issues that involve his department. I think he might have flirted a couple of times... and sad as it is, that seems to be enough to kick-start my imagination. I'm not sure he's even flirting for certain... and he's too young for me (he's 30), but can't say I'm not tempted to ask him out.

So, now for the lame part... here's why I think he might be flirting with me.

We were working an issue about marital status... and I get an email link from him that's to a web page he built "smart-ass" "is perpetually single" since and a timer. I made him fess up - and he claimed that a former co-worker used to bug him about the fact that if he didn't marry by the time he turned 30 he was never going to get married. When the counter counted down to 0, it started counting up again. So he left it out there.

Then, when I teased him about his "perpetuity of singleness" - he sent me links to other pages he's done with pictures of him and his sister, friends, house, etc.

We had an email where I had to reference a couple of "codes" -- and I picked the one I remember easiest "MFUX" which doesn't mean anything in any way shape or form dirty... but he sent a reply saying it was his favorite code of them all.

And then he sent me an updated link to his vacation photos - where he went with a group of friends.

... so is this the smart, nerdy way to flirt? or is he just being friendly and my over-active sex drive is just going off on a wild goose chase?

Well, only after fudging because I didn't recognize the bit-part guy they picked for me when I did the quiz the first time. Some guy from Lord of the Rings trilogy which I've watched two or three times, and I still don't know who they were thinking it would be.
