I'm a bad friend - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
I'm a bad friend
I visited Jim on the weekend.  I haven't really seen Jim for ages... and he is one of my oldest friends (not age - just how long I've known him.)  He was my best man and we used to be out drinking almost every day at one stage.

I can count the number of times I've seen him since the wedding on one hand.  I really am a bad friend.

We had an excellent evening.  We chatted about life, love and death.  After just a few beers we headed off to a very nice Indian restaurant and had good food.  We got back to the "Chav Chateau" and watched black and white B movies.  Jim fell asleep in front of the TV - it was just like old times.

Saturday "morning" (it was very close to midday once Jim "found" his door keys... in his pocket) we headed into Grays town centre for breakfast at a greasy spoon.

I headed back home and played wow for the rest of the afternoon and into the following morning.  It was about midnight when I realised I hadn't eaten since lunch so I raided the kitchen for snacks.  Two cheese & mayo sandwiches at midnight are quite sublime!

I played a little longer after that but fell asleep at the computer.  It's amazing how when I get to my bed I can lie awake for hours, but in front of a screen I doze off.

Sunday I woke late and headed to the 'rental units abode for a very nice Sunday dinner.  I had to leave sharpish afterwards as I had not done a single chore!  I needed at least my shirts and kacks washed and dried for Monday morning!

In between loads I played more wow.  I leveled Saladeen (the paladin - it almost rhymes!) and we managed an instance or two.

Yesterday work was a complete bitch - and so I missed gym.  I'll have to try and make up for it on Thursday.

Happy Halloween! My favourite holiday of the year (nothing to do with it being my birthday so soon after - honest! )

Good friends!

You don't have to be in constant touch with a mate for them to know you love them! Many of my chums only hear from me at Christmas but we know we think about each other more than often throughout the year. The fact that you met up wth Jimbo and it was like well... you'd only seen each other yesterday, proves how close you are.

Hope you got all your chores done. How was Gareth and Tinks?!!!

Have a very special day tomorrow. Your pressie's at home. Enjoy!!
