friendly weekends

so one of the main ways i've been trying to get back on track is to spend more time with friends, especially girl friends. and last weekend was fabulous at that.

since i decided that one of the key ways to stay drama free and on track would be to limit my drinking, i've been actively deciding not to drink too much... besides i haven't even been feeling like drinking much at all lately.

on friday i made plans to meet up with one of my close friends in uni for dinner and one drink. lately it seems like we've been reconnecting. and since she broke up with her boyfriend of 3 years bout 3 months ago, she's probably having more free time on her hand and we've talked bout the possibilities of making a short group trip or going speed dating together.

on saturday i met up for brunch with my new party BFF, her good friend who i've met quite a few times before (who i shall now christen as ms cool cat) and another one of their girl friends who i've met once before in the club and hit it off. it was a really great time. i'm loving the fact that my new party BFF and ms cool cat aren't just all bout the partying together but also seem to like to have these lil girl time meeting ups over meals. it makes me wish that my party girl and the yummy mommy were more like that 'coz it seems like we hardly meet up unless there's drinking involved.

sunday i went for this art exhibition with my family friend's setup. in fact i was the one who asked him if he would like to go 'coz i was looking for someone to go with me and remembered that he's kinda artsy.

so yeah we haven't heard bout him for a while. in fact i haven't seen him in at least over 6 months. but things were just as comfy as they were before. we never had a problem talking or getting along.

i'm not sure if there's anything there. thanks to a heavy downpour, we both wound up sharing an umbrella where i wound up holding his arm yet again. that was nice. but i'm still kinda inclined to think there isn't anything there. it was actually kinda funny 'coz the person we were talking to at the art exhibition counter (probably thinking we were a couple) suggested that we check out another one of the exhibition sites where it was romantic. and i could feel like maybe we were both a lil embarrassed and kinda sniggering to ourselves. so yeah i think i'll go out on a limb and say that we're kinda platonic.

but it was a great weekend. a weekend filled with friends. i'm hoping to have more weekends like this.

just as i'm trying to stop trying to "date" and yet acknowledging that i would definitely miss the making out, i had to go and have a dream bout just that.

i think i dreamt that cutie aussie colleague said that he liked me or something like that and we wound up at his place making out.

gosh i'm so attracted to him. hearing his voice every day is audio pleasure. i'm such a sucker for aussie accents and coupled with his chirpy baritone voice is enough to get me. and then that messy hair and tall somewhat athletic (though he really isn't athletic) stature...

okay i think this missing making out thing is going to be harder than expected...

****

come monday morning, i barely signed into IM when i received a message from drummer boy. he talked bout how he was very near my place (like very near... literally in my estate area) on sunday to help his friend help his fiancee (that would be his friend's fiancee and not drummer boy's fiancee haha!) move outta her place.

i found it a lil strange that he would suddenly chat with me bout that. but it was nice 'coz for a while it was back to the usual drummer boy conversation that i like... where he was more open and communicative and giving me an insight to what he was up to and his thoughts.

so yeah it's tougher than i imagined trying to gett him outta my heart and mind...

I've gotten to the point where I'd rather have a night with the girls instead of a hot date!

I think him contacting you, talking, etc. makes everything harder.

scotty: it probably does. but at the same time us not contacting makes it hard too. we don't contact much though i'm not even sure if that's a good or bad thing. i think in general it's just hard. period.
