There were two incidents yesterday. First, facebook suggested I become friends with my ex-girlfriend Lauren. I haven't thought of her in years. I have no clue what happened to her after she broke up with me nearly a decade ago. Turns out, she still has the same job at Pier 1, got married to some creepy-looking guy, and gained a TON of weight. (I gleamed all of this from her facebook and myspace pages.) I remember being very upset when she broke up with me, especially because I was working on how I'd propose to her. Now, I kinda feel like I dodged a bullet. :^)
Second, around 12:30 I got an IM from Louisa. She was a friend of mine from SB who used to tend bar at the Merc. She was one of my favourite people to drink with, but I always had the feeling that she meant more to me than I to her. Out of the blue last night she messaged me. I'm going to guess she was slightly intoxicated, but it was nice to hear from her nonetheless. We caught up briefly; she's in Nashville now, married, and seems really happy. What really got me, though, was when I asked her why she was IMing me out of the blue. (I don't think the two of us had talked in quite a long time.) Her response: "just saw you were online and thought i'd say 'hi'. also, i like you and stuff." You can't ask for a better reason than that. :^)
I guess that's all. I spent today in my pajamas in bed reading with the window open falling asleep from time to time. It was nice to have a lazy day like this.
Wherever you are, I hope you're doing well.
