"Season Finale. Double Feature."

If my life were a sitcom, this would be May Sweeps, the time when networks throw out all the stops to wow and captivate their audiences. So if fate is the network, I am some tool of an actor starring the comedy/tragedy that is my life. Let's review the highlights a little.

First there was the will-they-or-won't-they dynamic between Holly and myself with a little dash of bartender flirting and then there was the will-I-or-won't-I have a job anymore sprinkled with the two recent interviews I've had with separate companies. Too much drama for you? Yeah me too.

Even though I proclaimed in a previous entry that I was done with Holly, I had her over to the loft for dinner on Saturday. Inspired by my recent cooking class and an unplanned trip to an Italian market on Lafayette Street, I cooked gnocchi, tagliatelle, homemade alfredo sauce, salmon, chicken, and caramelized pears for dessert. And let us not forget the two bottles of wine consumed between Holly, Jane, and myself. I felt a bit like a cooking goddess, so hopefully my skills made an impression on Holly.

Maybe I threw in the towel too soon with her and maybe I need to try and get things between us spelled out, but even Jane commented that Holly gives off a reserved vibe.

I'm too depressed to live. Perhaps I'll get a pedicure.

Sounds like Holly isn't worth the time or effort. I mean - not only have you tried lots of other things to get her attention - but now you cooked an entire lovely meal....and nothing?

Move on!

And good luck with the jobs interviews!
