Firstly, if you have missed out on the brilliance of this website, then I suggest you check out fmylife.com! It is quite hilarious, and totally my sense of humour, as there is nothing I find more amusing that the absurdity of everyday life.
Secondly…my apologies for being a delinquent blogga. I spent the majority of last week paying for my one day of freedom with extreme productivity and also dealt with a bit of an internal conflict regarding the concept of keeping a weblog. But I’m chillin’ now…so it is all good.
Thirdly, the past week or so has been overflowing with manly misadventures so I suppose I shall update you on what has gone down!
I made the rainbow cake (which will be a tale for another day) for Mason and he kind of freaked out…he made such a big deal out of it that I didn’t really know what to say or do. I am generally immune to awkwardness, but I didn’t really think it was a huge deal, and he acted like I’d given him a kidney. Marley told me this was because I was ‘clearly declaring my love for him, à la Napoleon Dynamite’ (in the film Napoleon’s sidekick with a poor grasp of the English language, Pedro, suggests that in order to ask a girl to a dance, Napoleon “bake her a cake or something”). This left me feeling like a big dork, a sentiment that was only made worse the day after Mason’s party when my coworker Theresa commented that Mason ‘looked like he was going to cry’ when I gave him the cake. Not exactly the reaction I was going for.
This strange situation was further compounded by the fact that I had to work Saturday night–I had volunteered to work on Valentine’s Day because I’m not the biggest fan of said cheesefest and especially of the behaviour it tends to induce in Mr. Martini, although I was no more interested in spending the “holiday” with any of the other men in my life right now. Not to mention, I knew most of my coworkers were in relationships so I thought it would be nice if they could have the night off to recite poetry and listen to Sinatra. See, I’m not entirely bitter!
However, Mason switched shifts with someone so that we could work together Saturday night…so that ‘my Valentine’s Day wouldn’t completely suck’. I thought this was very sweet, and was quite excited that we’d be spending the evening together–even if it were to be spent at work. After the cake incident, though, I was a bit weirded out about this, especially since he has a girlfriend–I imagine they are on the verge of breaking up, but nonetheless, I’m not trying to spend singles awareness day with someone who is not single…
Then there’s Mr. Martini, who spent the weekend here despite my numerous reminders that I would not be available on Saturday, and true to form, planned a super over-the-top date for Friday night.
Unfortunately, one of my very best friends was dumped by her EVIL boyfriend on Thursday. Yup, you read that correctly. Her boyfriend of five years broke up with her right before Valentine’s Day. I cannot tell you how angry this makes me, but I am comforted by the fact that I know karma will come back to bite him in his sorry ass.
So, considering that my friend was feeling a bit psycho-crazy, I thought it best to not leave her alone Friday night…however, I also felt awful cancelling on Mr. Martini. So, I told him what was up, and because he is so crazy awesome, he said that she could come along. I also felt like getting her out and about and wined and dined would be good for her morale. And my dear, sweet, Mr. Martini was so very cool about it and even got roses and chocolate for my friend. How nice is that? I was really happy that he was so nice about her crashing because we hadn’t seen each other in a while and I think he was looking forward to some intense romance…but, he was perfectly kind and understanding, he even listened to my friend moan throughout the entire evening and was totally sincerely sympathetic and comforting. It made me appreciate him so much more, because I know he isn’t particularly fond of this friend and we haven’t been on the best terms, and the fact that he was so sweet about the whole thing was just incredibly endearing.
Blah blah blah, this entry is boring me…
To sum things up, Mason and I had fun making fun of the yucky couples on Valentine’s Day, and my girlfriend joined in, as she chilled at the coffee shoppe all night so she would not be ‘drowning in an ocean of tears’ as she so nonchalantly put it. Then, the three of us went out and drank massive amounts of tequila and continued to have a number of laughs at the expense of Cupid et al.
However, tequila has long been an enemy of mine, something I conveniently forget all-too-often, and upon approaching Mr. Martini’s hotel, I felt the uncontrollable impulse to tell the cab driver I needed to get out. It is true, I showed up at my (ex) lover’s hotel room at 2 am on Valentine’s Day, exceptionally intoxicated. How tragic am I?
Mr. Martini was awake and seemed pleased to see me, although I do believe he was somewhat taken aback by my drunken state as I tend to be on my best behaviour in his presence. I don’t recall much but I believe I went to sleep straightaway, presumably after confessing my undying love and devotion to him. The next morning, I awoke quite late and probably looking somewhat reminiscent of roadkill, to an awesome champagne breakfast (I obviously skipped the bubbly) and Mr. Martini smirking at me and inquiring as to when we were going to ‘talk about last night’. I believe I told him “never”, and left it at that–truthfully, I kind of wish that Mr. Martini had skipped the very sweet gesture of ordering breakfast because I was probably blushing throughout the meal and really, really just wanted to leave.
But it gets better. I arrived at work yesterday to discover that Mason and my friend had spent the night together, ‘but nothing happened.’ My friend confirmed this supposed innocence, but it’s kind of the latest turn-off in a string of unappealing actions for Mason–not least of all because I think it highly inappropriate for someone with a girlfriend to be sharing a bed with anyone…and certainly not my best friend who just had her heart broken. Although he tells me “she said she just didn’t want to be alone” and he “felt bad”, to me this screams of shadiness. Perhaps I am imagining it though…maybe they’re both just oddballs. In any case, it makes me think to myself, “fuck my life”.
So tonight I must face Mr. Martini…and I am really embarrassed because I unfortunately have very little recollection of the other night. Boo!
…f my life. :)
I hope everyone out there in blogga-land had a fantastic Valentine’s Day, devoid of drunken debauchery and intoxicated impromptu sonnets!
