last night on the phone with the TTHM i expressed my concern over spending an entire week away from work. it’s been a long, long time since i’ve taken a whole week off. it’s been never since i’ve spent a whole week by myself. i was worried, worried that i’d get stuck in the murky pits of utter loneliness. worried that without work i’d feel as though i ceased exisiting to anyone.
i whined about my lack of friends and other stuff that i like to whine about relating to loneliness and singleness and other such nonsense. in the process i insulted him mightily, because he is my friend and saying you have no friends to your friends is not cool.
but of course it was sunday night, and we all know about black sundays. and of course it was a holiday sunday night, a holiday where i got hear all about how sister #4 (yes, the youngest one) has big plans to get married to her new boyfriend in September 2006 (this, in and of itself, is an entirely different entry). so i was feeling more than a bit woe is me, and when you get like that it’s easy to ignore what you really do have.
so as i was sitting here a bit ago resisting the urge to check my work e-mail, the phone rang.
it was my friend jodie (yes the world can never have too many gemini jodi(e)s) and we were chatting and making plans for friday and she asked me if i was gonna join her bookclub and it was fan-fucking-tastic. it’s been entirely too long since i’ve had a female friend my own age to hang out with.
and the best part? she totally gets my huge crush on beautiful robert.
now, i’m gonna clean the kitchen, really.
