I was feeling great about my weekend and coming back to work until I started throwing up around 7 pm last night until I left for work this morning. Clearly this is going to be a great day for me. I really don’t know how I’m supposed to keep an appetite for seafood when the last two times I’ve gotten this sick, it’s been from salmon. Oh happy Monday right.
Back to Friday. My girlfriends and I decided to change things up a bit in terms of going out. When you always see the same strangers out, there comes a time to completely switch things up. So, that’s what we did. We went to dinner in completely different, slightly older, area which was refreshing. As much as I loved college at the time and still enjoy the occasional late night of partying, I just really can’t handle being the oldest person in the bar. Then again, I also don’t love being the youngest person by 30 years. The bar we went to seemed very chic until we got approached by a very young Russian girl who has only lived in America for days and really could barely speak English. She worked at the bar and my girlfriends and I are always very nice to other girls because we hate when girls are rude to us, so we got to chatting with her about her summer abroad. Then out of nowhere she broke into how she had a very wonderful group of older men for us to socialize with. Can anyone say Hostel V: A Russian in America? I tried my best to explain my Hostel reference to her but she she did a very good job of pretending she didn’t know what she was talking about:) I could just see my friends and I being locked away and business men paying to kill us. Scary concept and we do things a little different here in America. Needless to say my friends and I told her thanks but we were just into hanging out with each other and then quietly left the bar to go back to the same old places where we see the same strangers all the time.
Good thing we did because that is where I hung out with the person who may or not win Emily Maynard’s heart this season of the Bachelor. I didn’t want to pry either way, but Sean was being attacked by girls left and right. I didn’t want to bug him too much but I definitely wanted to gauge his status. Since I’ve heard he wins, I threw out the whole “if you’re not engaged, let’s get some friends together and hang sometime”. Of course, I don’t really think he’s my type, but my friend thinks he’s super cute and I wanted to lay some groundwork for her. He said no matter if he’s engaged or not, he will hang out. But what does that even mean? You know Emily keeps her men on a tight leash and if anyone who is marrying her is definitely not leaving the house ever.
I didn’t call my dad on father’s day and I feel a little uneasy about that. It’s like it doesn’t matter that he hasn’t called or written me on my Birthday for the last 3 years. I should feel not qualms about not calling him, but sometimes things just come to a point where you get tired of trying to be the bigger person in a situation. Is that an ok conclusion to come to? For now, the blocking is easier. That’s all I’m going to say about that one..
