Saturday night I attended a Blog Party. I have a friend who I greatly admire (one who I must give a name because she has been covered by my broad term GirlFriend up to this point - From this point forward she will be Red). She has more guts than I do, that is obvious.
She writes a blog - dating and humorous stories about her life - but instead of writing anonymously she proudly puts her name on it. I think half of our small town reads it and she has developed quite a following in less than 6 months. In away I envy her, wishing I was brave enough to not write anonymously. But honestly I like my screen and the ability to say (write) anything.
Red considers herself pretty plus and always says, "God didn't make me skinny cause he knew I'd be a whore."
In reality Red is a knockout with a great personality - the total package. And a beautiful redhead if you couldn't figure that out by the name.
Anyway, she had a Blog Party at a local restaurant and I attended for diner and laughs. The party went good -- as well as any non-alcoholic party can go that is. After the party some of us went to the pub for drinks. I meant to stay only a short while..... Giggles ducked out at 10 p.m. and I decided I would stay a little longer... but a short while turned into 1 a.m. and us stragglers heading to Waffle House --- Red, I, Guy Friend, Vivi, and a friend of Vivi's.
I didn't walk thru my front door till around 2:30 a.m. with 2 relizations:
1. I'm sososososososososo tired leading me to believe that I'm not as young as I once was
2. Well there is no two.
It was a much needed night of fun and laughter.
All that stuff I read about deployment may have been right. It said that the first few months its easy to get depressed. I thought that was a load of
crap (to an extent), I'm such a positive person I figured that first stage wouldn't hit me so hard. I was wrong. Lately I've been a little down and out.... so I think a night of fun was just what the doctor had ordered.
Laurie, "Am I in a different conversation?"
Jules, "Almost always."
