the one about recycling

so, as most of you know, i've been single since late october. which, since it's now early april, means that it's been awhile. i have always liked the concept of recycling, if at all possible. i like that i'm not introducing someone new into the mix and i already know what to expect. i've successfully recycled before during LS when times were tough. it was the perfect setup. CL (recycle boy) and i had hooked up midway through the last semester of 3L year. it ended kind of badly but then we were able to recover and remain friends. graduation weekend, we were both crazy busy and stressed w/our respective families about to come into town. so, 2 nights before graduation, we recycled each other. and it was nice. a good way to say goodbye :)

so now, i want to recycle. i'm not dating anyone and i don't do random hookups. but who to recycle? definitely am not recycling the Banker or the other loser i dated in bham. no one else lives in dc. probably the closest person (distance-wise) is CL and i don't particularly wish to travel to NYC to recycle someone. or do i? sigh.

are we in agreement that i should not travel across state lines for the sole purpose of some recycled booty? i think i'm pretty much closing the book on this one and resigning myself to wait until i actually have a boyfriend again. double sigh. actually, i take back that sigh. i do like being single. i just don't like not being able to scratch the itch :)

courtney! you are NOT going to NY to recycle CL! NOOOOO! unless you wanted to make a weekend trip of it together and we could share the 18 hour bus ride. that would be fun! also, i am laughing aloud. also, JJ may now know you have a blog.

Oh recycling! How many times have we had this conversation?!? It wasn't that long ago that I was considering crossing state lines to NC to recycle myself, but in hindsight I am so happy I didn't! Like you said, things between you and CL initially ended on a bad note. It's great that you mended things thereafter, but who is to say "recycling" might not complicate your friendship again? I guess you need to decide if it is worth the risk? Now if he happened to be in DC one weekend, or if you were in NYC for other reasons, and you two decided to recycle at that point I think that would be a different matter. However, a trip for the sole purpose of recycling might be dangerous. Anyone in the ATL you can recycle while you're down here next weekend? We can always plan an outing to Aphrodite's as well...
