oh.my. christmas

It's been two weeks and one day since we broke up. I am not coping this morning, feeling crap. But perhaps this has something to do with it:

1) I lost Drunken Monopoly on Friday night. I only managed to buy two stations. And I behaved badly because I'd drunk too much wine.
2) I am back in the game. I got lucky on Saturday.

3) In a strange and morbid twist of fate, this man lives next door to my nasty Ex. (Not Steve-he's just 'Steve', not 'Nasty Ex.') And the guy I was with, who was very sweet and gentlemanly said, "I believe you've seen this view before...from (Insert name here)'s room next door."

4) I did not sleep/have sex with Saturday Night Conquest. He's sweet, rich and a lawyer, but I'm about as excited about him sexually as I am about eating twenty garlic snails right now.

5) All my friends rode a Joburg cycle race on Sunday. It was hard for them, but looked like such fun. I wish I'd done it.

In a nutshell, I have Loser's Syndrome. Third World Ant is moving in for the month of December until my new roomie moves in in January. Bring it. I'm getting cabin fever with myself.

Don't cry little one. Stations aren't THAT important. Now UTILITIES! THAT'S where it's at!

Loser? My arse!

Ah guys, you're the best! :)

Utilities Jimmmer I was told is the worst thing to buy-but even if I landed on them I would've bought. But I only ever landed on jail and on stations. I had the worst luck!

And Steph, thank you! Cos I do feel rather out of my comfort zone right now and feel like everything is out of control!

you should have been the banker!!!
cuz the banker always wins;)
and i kind of thought getting lucky meant something including sex, your phrase over there means something different than our phrase over here.

Janie - I was the bloody banker! Maybe I was too honest :)

Yip, us South Africans are very conservative. Most of us girls, at least, don't do one night stands. Well my freinds and I at least. So getting lucky would mean that I napped over-literally slept over - and didn't so much as have sex with him.

PS: Janie-you were my 4000th visitor since July this year! Thank you for your loyal readership! :)

Its going to feel like that for a while, but you just need to remember that your friends are there to help. They aren't going to let you go through this alone. Just think about the future as a big adventure where lots of new and exciting things can happen. *big hug*

sweet, i'm assuming there is a prize???

Peas on Toast said...

Steph - I know, my friends have been so fantastic. Without them, I would go crazy. And thanks for your hug my dear, I know you've been through this too. xx

Janie - "And the Grand Winner is...Janie! Step up Janie!" (cue claps and whistles).
I'm going to have to send you a cheque in the mail. :)
