So ay work about a week or so ago I was walking out of cafe and there was an old friend of mine from high school looking at magazines. We hadn't seen each other in over 10 years and decided we had to get together at some point and catch up. After one failed attempt, my fault, we were able to meet this afternoon for happy hour. His wide came along whom I'd never met. And my goodness, she is a doll! We got caught up and talked about our own lives. It was really great. Plus I had some Blue Moon and uber cheap yet just as uberly good gorgonzola cheese fries and I left half in the bag. Gotta love public transportation for getting me home! But mostly it was so good to see my friend and meet his wife. Some times I still feel lost and lonely, (don't fret, it's only sometimes. Doesn't everyone feel that from time to time?) so when moments like this afternoon happen, I revel in them.
When I got home I realized it was still early. Damn the sun setting at 4 in the afternoon! And not too much later I didn't feel like sitting at home, so I took myself out for ice cream. Right across the street from my apartment is a little local ice cream shop! How great is that?! And then I went next door to a shop that has everything you should never need but everything you could ever want when it comes to stuff and decor. It's insanely ridiculous how much stuff they have in there. It's great for gifts and a little pick me up for yourself. I bought some Christmas cards. That's right. I'm sending out holiday cards this year. I'm all grown up!
And now it's me and my candles and my music (right now Robert Plant and Alison Krauss are serenading me. Haven't heard the album? You should!) And it's Turkey day in two days! Yippee!
