We went to watch a hockey game against Egypt, drank a shitload, and stumbled into the Roger.

Had a shooter, smacked a pizza and left. Was ok, actually.
And my newly-found sense of "fuck it all" is actually quite fun. I'm refusing to let friendship circle issues get to me anymore, I'm just chilled. And it feels great. I don't care if my ex doesn't love me, or even if he hates me and if we never see each other again. I don't care if Nick is annoyed with everyone and me. He'll get over it, and I'm not going to force the issue. I don't care if Greg gets hurt, he's a big boy. I'm butting out and it feels wonderful.

I think as freinds we're way too close. We share every intimate detail of our lives with each other, we cross boundaries with each other that make things personal, and most of all, we probably spend way too much time together. I also am the person to always organise these things, like get togethers, pub crawls and stuff, and quite frankly, I don't have the energy to do it anymore. I'm going to become a recluse. Even just for a while. It's going to be great.

Living as a recluse is actually underrated. You save loads of money by not buying the latest fashions and or attending all the expensive social events. It's also a good time to really scare the children at Halloween because all recluses kill and eat children.

i can't even imagine a hockey game against egypt, that seems so strange for over there, i guess i always assumed hockey was a north american thing. don't think that reclusive thing you're trying to work on will last too long, tomorrow is friday, followed by the weekend, you should maybe start being a recluse on a monday, when you're hung over from the weekend. i'm also the organizer, no one else seems to get around to it, sometimes i wish they would, but i've grown to realize i actually like doing it, so why fight it.

Ed - that's brilliant. Just the push I needed. I don't know many kids, but perhaps I'll scare my friends who knock on my door after 8 weeks of staying inside...and they'll gasp and scream at my white, translucent skin, the wodges of cash I've managed to save and stash in my living room....and perhaps a freaky Class A drug problem I'd have developed from sheer boredom. I'm liking this more and more.

Novy - Agreed, Ed's a funny dude.

Janie - It probably won't last, but for now, I'm keen to be a recluse. And I can officially be one as of today - I'm going to a national game park with the family for the whole weekend. With no cellphone reception there. Just me and the lions. Yay!

Do you think people will wonder where I've gone? Being the oversocialite I usually am? Hmmm.
