Another 24

My weekend started differently for a change. My company celebrated the anticipation of its new release (and more testing for my department) with cheese and wine--emphasis on the free wine. This went on for a couple of hours in which I had a ball with my supervisors. We were all pretty drunk at the time. This was the fun kind in which there was no serious health risk (but everyone was tipsy). I still remember challenging the lead developer to a Perl script showdown. (He was amazed at my Schwartzian transforms.) To make a long story short, I went home by 9pm and went straight to bed, missing a showing of "Real Genius" presented by a friend of mine.
I found myself waking up at 11am the next morning. 14 hours of sleep! I am not kidding when I say that it was more than I had the past week combined. I have now found a treatment for insomnia: 1998 Cabernet Savignion. Almost didn't make it to the weekly Shadowdawn run. Ran longer than I thought. As a result, I was unable to attend a birthday party. Once again, I was hoping to talk to a few people there but couldn't.
Which brings me to the topic of meeting people and dating. I made the mistake of asking someone I know out through online means. This was over three days ago. Haven't heard from her since. I've gotten used to rejection over the years. In fact, the worst words a person can say to me is "I'm flattered but I value our friendship." This is true if there was no friendship to begin with and it's just a means of brushing me off. However, I find the silence worse. One tries to be patience, but it is not infinite regardless of the person. Maybe I'm just being impatient, but I find myself new to this. Don't know what to do on the matter. It's hard asking people for advice since there aren't that many people I know who share the same predicament of being single AND poly.
I guess the same can be true for my recent purchase of Circus du Soleil tickets in which I'm patiently waiting for an order I made two weeks ago. Other people are waiting as well and I don't want to disappoint them.
