Basherter and I have resumed our friendship. It all began with a phone call a few weeks ago. This was perhaps more for me as most of our communication had been via Skype chat and I wanted to make sure that nothing said was lost in translation. I needed to connect the words with the voice and I wanted him to do likewise.
Since that initial conversation, we have continued to talk but not with the same kind of frequency or intensity as before. And I’m actually ok with that. In many ways, this whole situation has helped me to mature and realise that I can be JUST FRIENDS with A MAN even if we happen to share an intense bond.
Having said that, I should confess thought that having RacquetballGuy in my life has made it all the more easier. Particularly as in less than a month he will be here in London visiting for a glorious 10 days. I so hope that they are indeed splendid and help us to finally take things to the next level as if they are not, it will truly spell the end of our friendship.
The reality is that there is too much history and emotion and there is no halfway point. It’s all or nothing. RacquetballGuy hates when I say this, but that is the reality. I don’t think I’ll ever see him as just a friend. Thus, if we can’t take it to the next level, we both need to completely walk away once and for all.
That said, I’m really optimistic. Of course, I leave it up to destiny as ultimately it will decide our faith in this matter. So stay tuned.
In all the years of blogging, I don’t think I’ve posted any pictures of BestGuyFriend and me. Well at least not that I can remember. Below is one of us taken during his short stay in London.
How amazing that our friendship that started at the University of Michigan some 22+years ago remains strong and will surely last a lifetime!
I had a fews days of intense partying over the Notthing Hill Carnival weekend. The picture below sums things up perfectly.
Nothing like a birthday to put things into perspective. And celebrating a milestone birthday is even more special.
Today I am FORTY, Fine, Fit, Fierce, Formidable, Fearless, Fortunate, Festive, Fruitful, Faithful, Fanciful, Fantastic, Flirtatious, Funny, Friendly, & Feeling F$%king Fabulous. So yes, even with all the recent boyfriend drama, life is good!
Goodness! Where does the time go? January is turning out to be a very busy month. I can’t begin to say how much this pleases me. One of the highlights from last week was seeing Chris Rock perform his comedy routine live at the Hammersmith Apollo theatre. He was incredible funny as he told jokes about the weak American dollar against the British pound, wacky celebrities (Britney Spears and OJ Simpson), American politicians (Bush W Bush, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama), when it was ok for white people to use the N word (apparently only on one occasion and extreme suffering is involved) and what women want (everything!).
The other major highlight was spending the weekend in Paris. My company had our kick off meeting toward the latter part of the week, so decided to say for a few extra days. Paris did not disappoint. It’s a beautiful city. The climax was going to Moulin Rouge on Saturday night to see the world famous can-can girls. I had tried to see the show the last time I was in Paris but it was completely sold out. This night was no different so thankfully my colleagues and I had booked early. The show is just brilliant so would recommend to anyone visiting Paris.
