hi guys! woo hoo im traveling to portland on thursday right after work. i am a bit scared to go to my office job this week, bc i was out sick due to fainting and other malaise last week, but i suppose whatever does not get done will just not get done, and, well, will be done when i am back.
((( i just read somewhere ‘no one wants to read a bored blogger’, so i bet that goes double, eh, triple, for no one wants to read an unhappy office worker. so i will promptly shut up about that!))))
this past weekend i successfully accomplished going to a wedding i was nervous about going to… a good friend from way back in junior high. we were great friends and drifted and then came back together and then i started dating her older brother when i moved to nyc, and then we broke up, and… well, although that family is one of my favorites on the planet, add the aforementioned factors, and then put a few tables of people i havent seen since my high school graduation day into the mix, and, it could be trouble. so i probably (a.k.a. surely) drank too much to deal with it, but as the ex-bf said, if there is ever a time to drink too much, its at a joyous wedding. (he said it better than that. hes a writer. i just dont want to literally cut paste what he said. so, thats basically what he said.)
and my bf proves yet again to be the biggest keeper on the planet, for dealing with me through all of that stuff, plus me flirting with the OTHER brother of the family, who had a girlfriend who was there. ekk. will i stop being a disaster when i am, eh, 30? please?
and, alex, can i wear hightops to hike in? hightops and a flask seem like they would work for me.
also, holy shit, i cant believe we are going to hang out w dylan in portland! me you leah ryan dylan yay yay yay im never coming back to brooklyn. lets collectively kidnap each other.
and, i found out a great guy from my highschool now lives in portland. he was always cute and quirky and we were never great friends bc i think he was very christian or something or other, and he came into my school in like tenth grade or later, but he was always really cool and from what i gather on his facebook page he is now a carpenter and just maybe had an accident where he cut a finger off:( so, he isnt boring, at least.
YES world, i will think you are boring until you have a run in with a table saw! (or, go hiking in the woods w me with a flask.)
*fred, if you are reading, i dont know why all but one of the pics i inserted became pixalated, but as long as it does not compromise your art, i think they look sort of cool. im going to get them on MM this week!!!
