I have a confession to make. I LOVE Glee. No, I really love Glee. I've downloaded every song on iTunes and I stayed awake on the way to KC by blarring Glee tunes. Note: dancing and rocking out to Proud Mary while driving seriously frightens other drivers.
This morning I woke up after sleeping "in" for like the first time in lawd knows how long and I was singing the tune "Dancing with Myself". This is partly to blame on my recent obsession with Glee but on my other and long standing facination and love for all things 80s (rock on Billy Idol). The other reason why I presume I woke up singing this diddy is two-fold: 1) I'm alone in KC this weekend (F/S/S) which mean no hubs, no Ham. I've been brainstorming about what I'm going to do and I think I'm going to date myself this weekend. You know, take it back new school and live on the edge a little - take myself to dinner, to a movie, a little bookshop extravaganza (I promise I will not buy any more books Hubs...fingers and toes crossed) and of course some coffee shop time at the Sbux. 2) The other reason why I'm "a dancin' with myself" this morning is because I watched my favorite HB Oh-no ladies last night on some TBS SATC re-runs. Have I told you how much I love SATC? Well...I do. Anyway, my girls were going it single style last night and it inspired me. The last clip of the show was Carrie taking herself out for lunch and embracing being alone...I mean not really alone, but embracing the silence, embracing the opportunity to date herself, embracing the empowerment to sit at a table with out her cell, a book, a compannion or any other 'alone at a table distractions'. It was just Carrie at a table and she was loving it.
I believe I'm going to step out this weekend in Carrie style and not feel awkward for sitting at a table alone, rather I'm going to embrace this marvelous and rare opportunity to date myself.
What will you do for yourself this weekend?
