As if it wasn't enough to have to sit here once again and wait for a phone call that never came... (soooo curious to hear the excuse this time...), now I get given another reason to be pissed off for.
My friend's been really letting me down lately. She's just not the same as she was, she seems to have aged all together, I don't know what it is, but it seems like my granmother has more of an exciting life than her! It's not like I expect to go clubbing every day, or go get drunk and have a night out on the town, but for pete's sake, you'd think there was more to life than go to the movies every thursday!!!! Don't get me wrong, I love going to the movies. It's that mid-week break that I really enjoy. Plus I find it a great form of entertainment... having said that, though, I feel like lately it's all we do - no wait... it is
all we do!!!
I'm gonna be mean but I have to say it... I blame her boyfriend. This guy is a total bore. We've known each other for over 3 years now, but for some reason he still is shy and reserved! He never speaks a word, never makes a decision, never states a preference, never agrees or
disagress with you! He is totally weird!
Sometimes I think he doesn't like me and my other girlfriend, which would be totally cool... I'd be fine with that (I don't really like the dude eiter... lol), but it's not even that. He is like this piece of human left over... he's an amoeba
. (picture here
). He just sits there and tags along when us four go out.
I'll admit, it's not great for a couple to go out with two other girls all the time. I mean, I do feel a bit sorry for this guy to have to hang out with 3 girls all the time... but see, if he'd just be a bit more part of the group, he'd find out that we can actually talk about other things than besides shopping or make up! (And believe me, I couldn't be further from that clitché!!!).
At first, when we met him, I'd try to do my best to talk to him. Ask him about his hobbies (he loves to draw, he's a great cartoonist), I'd ask him about his studies.... just generally try to get to know the guy, as anyone would, right? But he'd only ever answer in mono-syllables... "yes, no, ok, good, maybe, sure
.." (ok, so maybe
has two syllables, sorry!) I figured he was kind of shy... (didn't take much figuring out...) but sheesh.... after three years you'd think that the shyness would start to melt away!! Maybe he's just anti-social and has no friends! Wouldn't surprise me...
Seriously, me and my other friend always joke about him and wonder what he's like when it's just the two of them.... for example, does this guy take his clothes off to have sex? Do they do it in any other position than missionary?? Does he masturbate? Hahhaha..... sorry, I'm deviating, but this is just a bit of teasing me and Francesca like to do when we talk about him and our other friend as a couple... Ohhh I know... we're soooo cruel..... but it's hilarious nonetheless!!
So anyways, to get back to why I'm pissed off today.... well.... we were all supposed to out last night, the four of us: the boring couple
, francesca and myself. Low and behold, we actually decided to go to a bar instead of going to the movies for once! This was really worth writing in my blog about!!! So, we arrange to meet up at my place. So come 10:30 I go down to meet them, and who do I find in the car?? Francesca with another one of our girlfriends!! "hmmm... so, where's the boring couple
??" "Oh" says francesca "they sent me a txt message saying that they were staying home 'cause she has a headache". Now... normally this would be ok. I mean it can happen.... you don't feel like going out anymore so you change your plans, cool. Life goes on for the rest of us, right? True... infact this wasn't what bothered me. (Though I have you realise, she does this all a bit too often for it to be credible anymore, but hey.... at this point, their company isn't really missed!!). So great, us three girls go to the bar... and that was that. We had a fun night.
Now, to get to why I'm annoied. Monday is a holiday here, so I was figuring that we'd do something either this afternoon or this evening for sure. I hadn't spoken to my girlfriend from the boring couple
at all yesterday, so was figuring to hear from her today at some point. I know that she's with her boyfriend (he lives in another city, so they spend each week end together, one weekend he comes down to Rome, one weekend she goes up to Massa), so I wasn't going to call her until maybe this evening.
So I receive this text message from her saying "We're meeting up with Francesca at 5 pm to go to the museum to see Modigliani
, if you want to join us..." (an Italian artist from the early 1900s). See, now I'm not sure you can capture the tone in this translation, but basically.... her message implies that her and Francesca spoke at some point today, and organised to go to the exhibition. Now for some reason my other friend is convinced that I don't like to go to art exhibits (but she's wrong). One time, ages ago, she asked me to go with her and her boyfreind to see some exhibit, but I didn't feel like it that day, I can't quite recall what exhibition it was, nor why I didn't feel like going.... anyways, from that day onwards she just assumes shit about me, saying rather rudely to me "well, everytime
I ask you to come along you always say you don't care!!!" Every time??? WTF?! Like, excuse me.... but what other time did you ask me to come along with you? She only ever invited me to go with her once!
Yeah so basically, she sort of
invited me to come along today.... but it was more of a "Yeah, we're going.... I know you don't care to come, but if you really want to... you know where to find us
" sort of thing.
You make think I'm reading too much into it, but trust me, I know her, and I know her tone.
So anyways... seeing as I didn't really feel all that invited, plus not forgetting that I'm pissed off anyways because someone
didn't call... I don't really feel like going anyways.
I'm kind of pissed off with her lately, she hasn't been very friendly towards me and I can't be assed to hang around her and her amoeba
boyfriend today. The day is all too nice and sunny to be locked away inside a museum and hang around the boring couple
Plus.... I'm waiting to see when this other person remembers of my existance...
Ugh... life! You know, it would be so much easier having less expectations if life. I honestly think I sometimes expect to much!!
