I’m posting this here because I’ve posted a link to my blog on my FB and said person in this post is on FB and doesn’t need to know this.
I went out for the first time in months on Saturday for a friend’s birthday. I’ve known said friend for 10 years - we met when I was a freshman in HS in his mom’s class. His mom is the best math teacher I’ve ever had, hands down. She inspired my love of all things mathematical and logical in every way. David (said friend) used to come in during lunch and after school and hang out, which is usually when his mom was helping explain things to me so that I got it. Although, it would usually end up being him teasing me and being a pain in the ass. Of course, I was a really inexperienced and naive freshman and had no idea that he was flirting, and I didn’t know how to deal with the fact that I thought he was cute.
In the 10 years we’ve known each other, we’ve tried to make it happen probably a handful of times at least and for whatever reason, it’s never worked. He’s married now, and happily, and I couldn’t have wished better for him. There’s times I wish maybe we’d tried a little harder or things had been right, but he’s such a great guy and friend that I would have hated to have lost him as that, considering that he’s one of the few people that knows all the bad and has never judged or left me when I really needed some one.
Saturday night ended up at his parent’s house, which turned into a serious blast from the past with the inclusion of alcohol, this time. It was a good time, but it brought back a lot of memories, good, bad and otherwise, as well as feelings, which I’m still trying to deal with.

Who tagged me - Emma <3
1. If you could meet an infamous person, who would it be and why?
Infamous, eh? Jack the Ripper. I have an odd fascination with criminality, especially serial killers. Oh, and to find out who actually did it because the suspense kills me.
2. What is your least favourite song?
Least favourite? Hmm. That’s kind of tough. I can think of lots that I absolutely dislike but my least favourite…that’s going to take some thought. OH I KNOW. My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion.
3. What is one modern convenience you could not live without?
Only one? Well, this is frustrating. I’m going to have to go with the microwave. I went without one for about a month, thought I would die. Seriously….no buenos. (Anything electronic- iPod, cell phone, laptop- are close seconds.)
4. If all spell checkers died tomorrow, would you be in trouble or would it hardly faze you?
Hardly faze me. Although I still have those words I always get wrong, ex: sheriff, guarantee, etc. But I’ve always been a decent speller.
5. What is the predominate colour of the clothes in your wardrobe?
I actually had to look. Mostly blues, greens, black/grey.
6. If you had to give up one social media site, which would it be and why?
Does Myspace count if I still have an account and I’m not on there anymore? lol. Probably Foursquare, because it really does little for me outside of giving me points for being the mayor of my gym and OMG YOUR HEART IS SAYING YES BUT YOUR MUSCLES ARE SCREAMING
AND DYING SAYING NO AND YOU’RE AN EFFING BEAST, WHAT IS THIS, 20 WEEKS IN A ROW? WHO ARE YOU, ARNOLD?
Yeah…Foursquare it is.
7. What was your favourite stuffed animal as a child?
I had this little bitty white bear that I called baby tinety bear. There were two others, each larger than the other that were tinety bear and big tinety bear, but the only one that’s made it has been baby tinety bear. (I was original with the names, hush it.)
8. Real books or eBooks?
Both, but ebooks are infinitely more convenient, although nothing beats the smell and feel of a physical book.
9. If you compared apples and oranges, which one would win?
Depends on the day. I like them both, but some days I’m just more inclined towards one rather than the other.
10. Are you a day person or a night owl?
Haha, really? I force myself to be a day person. If I had it my way, nothing worthwhile would happen before 2PM. I hate mornings almost as much as I loathe running. That pretty much answers it.
11. How do you like your pizza?
I like it the European style. Thin crust, the pizza sauce is..amazing, delicious cheese. I liked mine with salami, onions, mushrooms, olives, just about anything really. I really miss European food.
My 11 Questions to you!
1. What is your least favourite food and why?
2. Where is the weirdest place you have a mole?
3. Do you have an innie or an outie?
4. Do you parallel park or drive around the block?
5. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve done while driving?
6. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet?
7. Can you play Guitar Hero?
8. Do you believe ex’s can be friends? Why or why not?
9. What items could you not live without?
10. What song is stuck in your head?
11. Someone knocks on your window at 2:00 AM. Who do you want it to be?
I wish I could tell you this, somehow, just keep saying it til it rang as true for you as it does for me, but I can’t. I could, but it wouldn’t change a damn thing. I wish I could tell you how I felt without you making me feel stupid or like I shouldn’t feel that way or trying to talk me out of it.
What on Earth have you done to me? Why can’t you just let it be?
This reminds me of a bridge in Regensburg, Germany, where lovers would put a lock on the fence that bordered either side and throw away the keys. Even if the relationship was over, the lock would remain unless someone removed it. I always found the idea fascinating.
