Grumble.

I feel awful. And miserable. And HUNGRY. I hate Mondays! I feel like Garfield. I hate Mondays, love lasagna, and would like to sleep all day.

I have SO much food left from the party. Ham and pasta salad especially. And I forgot to make the pigs-n-blankets, which means I have pigs, and I have blankets. I thought about having people over tonight to watch the Sixers on my new big TV and eat the rest of the food so as not to insult all the starving people in China; but I have to go to a stupid Planning Board meeting tonight, for one of my projects at work. And tomorrow I'm going to a "social" at a bar in Philly, for members of the ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers), the Young Members um something. Young Members Faction? Young Members Brigade? Young Members Club? It had better not be the lamest thing ever. It's seven bucks for all the beer you can drink. There had better be at least a few cute engineers there.

The kid from my work, whom I invited to my party? He brought a ridiculous amount of stuff -- TWO bags of ice, at least two 2-liters of soda (maybe three or four, I forget), a bottle of Captain Morgan's, a six-pack of Yuengling . . . possibly something else. And he stayed as long as there were other people there. I kicked him out when Vince and Jeff left. This behavior has prompted some to theorize that he likes me. I'm not sure. I mean, he pays an awful lot of attention to me and we talk via e/pop all day long but I've never seen the kid flirt. And I'm not interested, but I can't come up with a better reason than "he's not my type." Which sounds lame, and I mean he's not funny-looking or anything, and we talk easily, and he's smart, but . . . he's just not my type. I hope he doesn't like me.

My tummy hurts now! Man, Mondays.

OH also, the holidays are totally over. I can't really pretend anymore. Bah humbug.

Lo-ahd, you went there with the Garfield joke. Now I don't want to see your tits as badly as I used to.

Wait, what? TITS? Where the hell did that come from? Prevert.

That kid did seem a little... strange. I mean, he was cool and all, it just seemed like he stayed there an awful long time considering he didn't know anybody and wasn't really involved in any of the conversations.

Let us know how the ACSE thing goes... I've gone to a couple of American Chemical Society and American Physical Society things, but it wasn't for young engineers, and they were really boring. I figured the Society of Physics Students meetings would be huge geek-fests, but maybe I'll try one of those if your ACSE social doesn't totally suck.

Yeah . . . like, I wanted him to go so that I could RELAX, y'know? And stop being a hostess. I wanted you and Jeff (and was there someone else you gave a ride home to? 'Sides Caine? I can't remember . . . ) to stay so we could shoot the shit and evaluate the party and talk about people, but I couldn't do that while he was still there. OH and take those goddamned boots off. They're remarkably comfy, but they're still boots, and my ankle bones were beginning to chafe.

OH and dude, of course I'm going to that ASCE thing because HE'S a member and HE asked me to go. Which makes it sound like I don't want to go, which isn't true, I really like him a lot. I'll just pretend he doesn't like me; if he doesn't, then that's appropriate, and if he does, then maybe he's too much of a wuss to do anything about it. Pen/company ink, all that.

We also had to drag the bloody, broken form of Curt Saal home. We tried to take Dave, but he wasn't cooperating. Apparently, he walked to Hal and Gina's the next morning.

Oh man, Dave RULES. I had so much fun with that kid.

Yeah, man, but we were all a little relieved when you lost the Shockey jersey . . . he's easily riled up when he's drunk, and I was picturing my tree toppling. Or the ham being thrown. Or something else amusing.

Oh man, I'd feel bad if that happened, and I would have had to leave. "Whops! I ruined everything. See you later!"
I felt bad becauser I knew the two of us were getting loud. I have issues with volume control, and when I hang out with drunk people I have to constantly remind myself that they are yelling because they are drunk, not because it's OK to do.

Ah, okay. I wasn't sure if Curt went with you or Kevin, but now I remember him sitting on the bed next to Michelle.

Yeah, I felt bad about Dave having to walk. When I woke up, I drove down Blackwood-Clementon Road, but he was probably long gone by then.

Man, I hate that situation. Where there is an inkling of "maybe-like". It sucks, because if I genuinely like the person, think they are funny, like being around them, etc. I feel badly expressing that, because maybe they'll think I like them THAT way, and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

Man, I have a good excuse now, with the boyfriend and all, but I feel for you, I hate that.

Yes, I'm lucky that he's apparently so shy. I can play dumb, and talk about other boys and stuff to him.

Course, could be that he doesn't even like me a little bit, and all this talk is just me thinkin' I'm hot shit.

Dude, you totally are hot shit. Regardless of what this guy thinks.

I swear to you, it's all true. I don't HAVE to say it, I am saying it because it's true.

Oh, Sa-a-a-a-ave it for the "I think I'm not hot but I really am" thread.

That's so much better than the "I think I'm hot but I'm really not" thread.
