leaving base camp

So I ventured out Friday night. After, mind you, some dude from Couch Discount Warehouse approached me with a flier at my window, and I completely freaked out and told him to Step. Away. From. The. Vehicle; in a manic sort of “Fuck!” kind of way – I went to a drinks do. I purposely ensured I knew no one there, only the host.

Ended up playing – and winning – yeah – Shithead against a bevvy of boys all evening. Men, well most of them, are so predictable. It's rather hilarious when you have a heightened sense of awareness at any rate. I was essentially pretty stoked, I made new male friends and they were all clustered around me at a table playing Shithead, all evening. No girl is going to complain about that, I mean come on. Heaven really. I met an exotic Italian, an interesting freelance writer bloke, and a dude with Please speak slowly...I don't understand Idiot. on his shirt – and Whale was a great host. You can't really ask for more. You're the chick, you're surrounded by men, you're playing a sometimes-ace hand at Shithead, you're wearing your knits – only because you're being very feminine - and for some reason cardigans are turning you on - and yet, it's all happening.

On Saturday I went to Dick's farewell. Now Dick is definitely my favourite ex - like ever – we're mates and all that – and we had a great dinner then a proper frollick in his jacuzzi until the early hours, playboy mansion party-style. Why is Dick going to Australia for 6 months? It sucks – out of all the ex's, why does my favourite have to leave? I mean, he's the one who looked after me after my smash and grab and break up, and now he has to go. Ironic really, yes.

The party was nice, though. And bearing in mind, I don't really leave the house unless I'm really sure it's gonna be a) safe and b) safe with people I actually want to see.
We ended up in the jacuzzi into the early hours of the morgen – me, Moogs, Dick and a few others. It was a good party. Drinking a mojito here and there and wearing a white bikini. Yikes. Thing is, I've seemed to have lost 5 kgs over the last 4 weeks, so yeah, I didn't feel too bad about stripping off.
Although I did run into his dad whilst saying, “Moogs I'm getting my skanties on! Oh hey Mr Dick, remember me?”

Ah well, I really wish him the best. Good luck with those Kangaroo Jockeys and Sheep Shaggers big guy.

In other news, my scarf is a fucking wonder of life, the thing has a personality of its own. I should approach Sowearto and other shops to sell my scarves. I don't need a pitch, the product literally speaks for itself.

Oh and last night....well. If I could tell you, I most certainly would. The most obscure and yet hedonistically weird thing of last week has taken an interesting turn. Maybe it's time to start a new blog. Because this, my friends, would knock your socks right off your very toes. It leaves me wondering. And questioning. And Oh My God-ding.

It is the question said...

Now come on Peas. You're holding out on us with the sex stuff aren't you?

If you're stoomping somone we need to know the gory details. It has been way to long since we had details.

Peas on Toast said...

It is the question - shtoomping someone? Hahahaha, bless! No I'm not having sex with anyone, I promise :)

And as soon as I can share with you, doll, you'll get all the details. It's not a traditional thing, that's all I can say.

:)

Nessers said...

Possibly the only good thing about breaking up with someone is the weigtloss - I lost 8 lst year and have since picked up 2 so I am still in credit for 6

And yes you better tell us if you get any nookie cos I have not had it in that long I forget what it is *g* so I need to be reminded that other people have it and in the future I may get some too

Glad that you ventured out again - well done

Peas on Toast said...

Nessers - yeah it's a double edged sword. And I think the weight loss is due to stress, and fear, etc. And I want to eat! I really do, I just have to mentally prepare. :)

And yip, although scary, I'm pushing myself out of the comfort zone...and look I'm still alive! :)

Insane Insomniac said...

Totally agree. Should you ever feel the need to lose weight, break up with someone or get fired or go through a similarly horrible experience.
(It does not help if you break up in front of a 24hr chippy and off license)

Waiting with bated breath for the big secret...

kyknoord said...

There's something really sad about saying goodbye to Dick for six months, isn't there?

Peas on Toast said...

Insane - oh yes. Or even better. Break up, undergo a life-threatening experience and get retrenched all in one week. It's the best diet on Earth :)

Ag and the secret isn't that hectic, it's just fucking funny! :)

PS: No nookie. I swear it!

KaB said...

Oh pooh...you're the losing the favourite...that sucks! And to Aussie land nogal...haiwenna!

Congrats re: losing 5kgs miraculously...lucky bitch! I've turned into a pie!

Spill the dirt...must have dirt...I need dirt...it's Monday for fecks sake!

Peas on Toast said...

Kab - yeah it's Monday, I agree, dirt would be good! Thing is, my dirt has nothing to do with even touching anyone - so in reality, it's not that dirty at all :)

Speaking of dirt though...the maid just emptied the vacuum cleaner...
:)

Jam said...

Sounds like you had an amazing weekend, gorgeous.
Need coffee with you this week...or vino.
ENVY to the scarf and to the Sunday night. Don't you owe me a scarf??

Peas on Toast said...

Jma - hello my darling friend! I most certainly have a scarf for you amongst my um...4 orders! :)

And yes some vino or coffee, or even vino and coffee sound like a peach - my week looks fairly complacent, so lemme in on your schedule! xxx

Billy said...

Nice to see your on the up and up!

WTF is the secret, im getting edgy!

Peas on Toast said...

Billy - ha ha, I have to laugh - it's not so much a secret as a....really funny story.

I'll share eventually promise. For now, I'm still like "Jesus is this really m existence, and my GOD, how did this happen?"

Ordinarylife said...

How can you hold out on us like this.

Tell!

Billy said...

Whatever. Im still sitting here waiting!

Ah feck...there goes the excitement of it all!

Peas on Toast said...

In good time, little ones, in good time. Patience, patience!

Can't tell you half a story!

Revolving Credit said...

"Jesus is this really m existence, and my GOD, how did this happen?"

Was that you praying??
Are you becoming a missionary?

You do know that the job is not related to the position!!

Peas on Toast said...

Ah Revvie - yes. I'm moving to Borneo, setting up shop with a few pews and brainwashing machines, and then I will take over the world!

It's just that my cult is up against Kyknoord's - and his is way more established.

Revolving Credit said...

Peazle

Shouting out 'Oh my God' doesn't necessarily qualify as prayer!!

Revolving Credit said...

Doesn't Kyk possibly have a missionary position for you???

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - He may do, but is it in the Cyannetology constitution - I mean missionary is a very Anglo-Establihsed thing innit. ;)

Revolving Credit said...

Which, the calling or the position?
