birthday shenanigans

it's that time of the year again... yesterday i turned a "ripe old" age of 28.

my party girl, the yummy mommy and i decided to head over to cozy hole-in-the-wall bar on friday night for a lil countdown celebration. before it was even midnight, i was already starting to get a bit of a buzz. then midnight hit and the drinks hit me later even more.

we wound up at the bar that dj guy now works in. the club that he previously worked in after leaving cozy hole-in-the-wall bar closed and he sent out word bout over a month ago that he was now managing this new bar. i had planned to check it out eventually and turns out that my birthday was the very night i did check it out.

not that i remember it all too well. honestly i was pretty tipsy at that point. tipsy enough that i think this brit guy and i might have kissed. he's the younger (and much cuter!) brother of my friend who owns cozy hole-in-the-wall bar.

honestly i feel guilty. and it's not the kind of guilty i felt when i was making out with shrek boy while really liking the ad-man. it's not even the kind of guilty i felt when i made the greatest mistake by drunkenly making out with dj guy's best friend when i really liked dj guy. it's a different kind of guilty. i mean i'm supposed to be in some sort of a pseudo relationship now right? and i had to lie to drummer boy when he asked if i was good that night. i felt even worst especially knowing that i forgot to text him when i got home which caused him to basically have a night's worth of interrupted sleep 'coz he was a lil worried if i was okay. what can i say? i'm just not used to having to "answer to" someone else.

which of 'coz sometimes honestly worries me. what happens if me not being used to this becomes a future problem for me and whoever i'm with?

yesterday drummer boy spent my birthday with me. we went for dinner and a movie and then supper. it was a nice time. and as usual we were walking around town hand in hand like a couple. in the movie he was quite preoccupied with cuddling me. and i thought it was nice that he brought me to his usual place for supper so i could see where he hangs out with the boys. i was still a lil hungover (or maybe i was still tipsy!) and hence probably "zombified" but it was still nice to spend my birthday with him.

Happy birthday!

I guess it's hard transitioning from answering to no one but yourself...but I think that, if you really like drummer boy...then "answering to him" won't be that big a deal, anymore...right?

queen vee & ecrivain: thanks for the birthday wishes :)

ecrivain: you know i was wondering bout that too... like if i really liked someone then it should be easy to "answer to" him right? but lately i've been increasingly wondering (and worried) bout this. what happens if that's not how it happens? what if i actually have to work at this? especially if i'm tipsy i realise that my judgement kinda just flies outta the window. and it's probably that case 'coz i've never had to worry bout "answering to" anyone else before. i mean of 'coz i could just make sure i limit my drinks but really sometimes those tipsy moments kinda hit you a bit too late...

Happy belated birthday!!

Of course, it's difficult getting used to answering to someone. Eventually you will get used to it though! It's when it becomes an actual annoyance that I think it would be a problem! :)

I think he just wanted you to text him when you got home to be sure that you actually went home...alone! LOL

saneandsingle: thanks for your birthday wishes :)

hmm actual annoyance huh? well i'll certainly bear that in mind... i think i feel a lil better already bout this whole not being used to "answering to" someone thing.

and yeah i think you're right! though texting him wouldn't be that surefire a way to tell that i went home alone. i know that he has actually picked up (then) girlfriends up from the clubs and driven 'em home before 'coz he wasn't so sure that some of 'em would go home alone. i guess he didn't do that with me 'coz we're not defined and i haven't exhibited any signs that i wouldn't go home alone...
