of course, tonight was menlie's
i talked down my gift a lot (which is a pretty shitty thing to do), but as i was driving home i started warming up to the idea that it might actually be well-appreciated. more than anything, i'm proud of the silly lettuce card a wrapping paper. i'm such a goof. still, i wish i could have found something for her that would just make me say "yes, this is totally perfect for lauren." oh well. christmas is around the corner and i'll do better next time.
somehow, i walked away from the party being the prude of a bunch of girls. i find that absolutely hilarious. it's not that i didn't want to toss a little lap dance love in lauren's direction; it's that i just wouldn't feel comfortable giving a lap dance to anyone in front of my brother, four ex-lovers (who think they still have a chance) and my latest crush. oh, and also that stripper that i made out with.
other random tidbits:
>> i still can't deal with being teased about anything in front of a group. it sends me over the edge. fast.
>> i hold a grudge like nobody's business.
>> i think i really love these kids. they put me at ease [except when they're teasing me].
>> I SCREEN MY FUCKING CALLS. DEAL WITH IT. MY PHONE IS FOR MY CONVENIENCE -- NOT YOURS.
>> expectations piss me off. i don't owe you anything.
anyway, i'm not as pissed off as all that. really. i had an excellent time tonight.
happy birthday, le chuga!!
