26 July 2008

I need a pep talk. [More:]I replied yes to a casual friend's 40th birthday party that is getting started in one half hour from now. I do not want to go, but must force myself because I replied yes and it would be rude not to show up, but I'm not so sure they would care.

I need to jump in the shower. It will be no problem showing up fashionably late, but I need a kick in the ass to go. A big kick. I think there is going to be a male stripper and that makes me all the more unwilling.

This sucks. I'm getting in the shower but this sucks. Why did I reply yes?
Are you in the shower yet?????

(Go. Turning 40 needs all the support you can get. )

No, but I'm going to the showers now. I really am.

You're right, bunnyfire. Thanks.

Go go go go go go go go go go!

Birthday cake, getting the chance to dress up and look all beauteeful (like you always do I bet;)), AND, the chance to see some random dude in a thong--now how can anyone pass up on an opportunity like that???

Do it for Miss Manners, if not for your friend. You don't have to stay long, but should make an appearance and congratulate the guest of honor.

I'm smelling good and ready to get out of here soon. Thanks, people!

I'm going to stop by ABC Liquors for a bottle of wine and scratch off lottery tickets for a little present. Because I'm classy like that.

My next hurdle is not to drink too much.

I went. I had fun. I saw some old friends. I met some new, cool people. I had four beers. Mingled. Sang happy birthday and split. I am very glad I went. The birthday girl was happy to see me.

I went to a friend's party tonight, and I wasn't going to, and I'm happy I decided to pull my finger out and go because he was happy to see me, and I got there just in time for the first set - they had bass, guitar, and drums set up in one corner of the yard. I also got to talk to a pretty girl, and an old acquaintance so all is good.

So, I'm glad I went, and you're glad you went, so I suppose this is a post-pep talk or something. Either way, yay us!

What a fun present! When I turned 21, my dad and stepmom got me $21 worth of scratch offs. I think I actually got $5 back, but it was fun fun fun.

Glad you went...

I definitely feel this way sometimes, where I'm in my house the hour before I'm supposed to leave thinking why, whyyyy did I say I would attend this? I almost always enjoy myself once I get there, though; I can't think of any event where I decided to attend and I regretted it.

Explain this New Yorker cartoon to me || I never did tell you how it ended with Khadija, did I?
