I love writing but I'm bad at writing about me.
@LaLoba You're hired! (For another time.)
I had one extra free ticket to this party (because yes, this particular party required tickets) but couldn't find just one friend to go with me, which is basically the story of my life, so through some subterfuge I managed to get two friends to come with and just bought another ticket, because I'm not so great at going to parties and stuff by myself.
My friends had an okay time. I guess I'm also not great at making things more fun for people. womp womp.
@michealjohn Vitamin C serum for face? WTF even IS that? Do you know how easy it is to get Vitamin C? Literally everything I eat has Vitamin C in it. I'm not going to waste my time putting it on my face, friend.
Am I allowed to post comments after a sea of fake people? Or does my comment now look illegible by association?
Anyway, they sing about the "Best Song Ever" and not remembering afterwards how it goes...
I have decided to believe that this refers to the same song that Tenacious D sang about in "Tribute."
@zamboni Milk and cookies for Santa, carrots and olives for the reindeer.
@ clara morena I second Isabelle's advice! Go you! You're being direct and going for it.
@adorable-eggplant Not all of them are, no. It might be that this particular instance is just due to schedules not working out - lots of friends have work on Friday night or Saturday morning, and one of them is going through some family stuff.
I guess I just have bad luck when it comes to these things. I think I also just have to admit to myself that to most people, I'm that friend who gets invited to things when people are in large groups. I don't have a lot of friends who are big on going to a concert/movie/whatever that I want to go to even if they don't want to go, and I don't get that many random invites if two or three people are getting together for a quick bite or something. I'll usually last-minute invites when a mutual friend is visiting from out of town or something.
I probably sound really lonely and whiny! I swear I'm not always this bad (or maybe I am, I don't know.)
@karenb There was a series about it on CBC a few years back! I don't remember much about it, except for the narrator at one point trying to express surprise at the fact that Montrealers say "hanger" for... I guess everyone else calls it a coat hanger? Clothes hanger?
This is probably a very regional thing, but I've never called anything "soda" or "pop." They're called "soft drinks," people! Come on now.
(I may or may not have been super confused when I watched This Is The End and Jay Baruchel called it "pop." Like he betrayed his entire city by not saying "soft drink.")
Happy Thanksgiving! I wish I was eating turkey.
I also wish I could find someone to come to a party with me tomorrow for free, but I've asked like five people and none of them can go! Why do I always have trouble finding people to go to things with me, even when it's for free?
@iceberg Thank you for keeping up with your weekly BBs stories. They're so cute.
And I say let the kids play with whatever they want to play with! My cousin's 1-year old daughter is starting to play with her 3-year-old brother and his toys, and she likes some of his toy cars, and so far no one has told her not to and I hope it continues that way. (My family does seem to reinforce gender roles more than I'd like them to, especially with kids, but I hope they won't be strict about things like toys, especially not when the kids are so small!)
