I'm still alive

I promise that someday I will write something of at least marginal substance here again. Today, however, is not that day. People, I am TIRED. And it is only Monday. This does not bode well for the rest of the week. It's all good and fine to be busy and popular (I may be exaggerating or even completely making up the latter part of that compound), but a girl needs to take a night off now and then. One of these nights. Really.

Meanwhile, talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic. What should Stefanie wear on her maybe-date with the MPR reporter she met two weeks ago? Yes, I have a maybe-date! But I did not plan an M-P-R-ty to acquire it. I just decided, in an impulsive "What the hell; what do I have to lose?" moment, that maybe it wasn't completely unreasonable to write to a total stranger whose email address happens to be in the public domain and ask if he'd like to have a drink with me. And apparently he didn't think it was completely unreasonable either, because he basically said, "OK." I know! I'm as surprised as you are. But stranger things have happened, no?

Of course, this is only a maybe-date, because first off, I did not use the word "date" in my invitation, and hence, he may have an entirely different label for this get-together in mind. And second, I have not actually heard back from him with any further confirmation of these date or non-date plans. It's all very hazy, obviously, which makes asking you what I should wear on a possibly entirely fictitious maybe-date or non-date entirely a moot point. Plus there is the problem of most of you having no idea whatsoever what is in my closet and hence no idea what the options in this multiple choice question might be.

So how about I give you a different topic instead? The Holy Roman Empire was neither holy nor Roman nor an empire. Discuss.

Yay for a maybe-date! I can't wait to vote on the outfit but you are right that we need more details before we get to that point.

3carnations said...

Um...so is there a day or time for this 'date'?

-R- said...

Post pictures of 3 outfits, and then we will choose!

Or just wear the sluttiest thing you own. =)

The Roman empire wasn't Roman or an empire? Really?

I prefer to discuss your outfits over the Holy Roman Empire. Unless your potential outfit includes one of those tall Pope hats, because that would be HILARIOUS.

Monkey said...

Excited about your update!

And per your last sentence- I will agree with the holy part, but I am suspicious of your assessment of Roman and Empire.

flurrious said...

I thought we were going to talk about the Huguenots today.

Carrie said...

It's totally a date.

lizgwiz said...

I have no interest in discussing the Roman Empire, holy or not, but let's get back to that maybe-date.

You need to look smart and sexy, right? So...you've got the sexy librarian glasses already...just flash a little cleavage, too. ;)

Lara said...

I love both of -R-'s suggestions. Go with either one of those! (I vote slutty!) (just kidding) (maybe).

NGS said...

Clothes!! Let's discuss. It will be all girly and wonderful.

First, Minneapolis weather right now is so hit or miss. Is it going to be 80 degrees? 60? Raining? Windy? We need to know the weather possibilities so we can advise you appropriately.

But you can never go wrong with too much eyeshadow and red lipstick to signal your date-y intentions!!

courtney said...

I say keep it casual. Not casual as in sweatpants, but you know -- jeans, cute top that shows a little skin. But I do like the idea of you posting three options and letting us pick!

Alice said...

OOH! you should wear something super sexy, but then with like totally pared down makeup and messy hair, so you just happen to be SUPER HOT but oh! hey! was this a date? haha, who knew? i just ALWAYS LOOK THIS AWESOME.

maybe the empire was more holey?

Stefanie said...

FYI: The maybe-date has been postponed until next week, for fully valid reasons that he relayed in a fully acceptable way. And NGS is right: the fact that it could be 60 degrees or 80 does make it hard to make this decision in advance. It will likely be a game-time call.

And finally... Doesn't anyone remember Coffee Talk with Linda Richman?? No? No one? Well that's a surprise...

3carnations said...

I remember Coffee Talk, and I got the reference. :-)

lizgwiz said...

Remember the all-time greatest Coffee Talk, when Roseanne and Madonna were guests, and Barbra Streisand came out and surprised them all? Good times. ;)

Shelly said...

HAHA! I second Alice's "What? I always look this good" suggestion.

courtney said...

I got the reference too. You could have thrown in some love for Barbra Streisand to make it more obvious.

Miss Pants said...

Sorry to hear your maybe-date is postponed but I'm happy to hear you found a man who knows how to communicate properly. Yippee! :-)
