Adam & I went out tonight with Lindsay (from work) and Ian (not roommate Ian, another Ian.) We had dinner and drinks at Murphy’s Law, which was great, then walked along the beach and headed towards our house, ending up at Mersini’s where we had another drink and Ian & Lindsay had a belgian waffle.
It was a good night overall, lots of good conversation was to be had, which was nice. I’ve kind of been feeling like I’m incapable of being interesting lately, because I just haven’t had anything to say for what feels like months. Just feel like I’m disconnected from everything, and have felt that way for a while. It makes me feel sorry for myself (which is never a good thing, since I really hate when I’m feeling sorry for myself because if I’m feeling that way then I don’t even want to be in my own company, so I feel even worse because I figure if I want to avoid me then so does everyone else. Yes, I think in too many assumptive circles. Is assumptive a word?)
At any rate, all I’m really trying to say is that I feel boring, and actually going out and having an interactive good conversation that I felt like I was a part of really helped me to get rid of that feeling. I need more conversations like that, I need to be with people I connect with more often. It makes me feel more… real, I guess.
Cyn mentioned the 3 Day Novel contest. I’m starting to consider it (like I do every year, Pinky.) I don’t know, though. It’s a lot of money to spend on what basically ends up being a writing exercise and a challenge to myself. I should theoretically be able to challenge myself that way without spending 50$ on it… theoretically. Except I know that that’s mostly a lie I like to tell myself. I shall have to consider more, I still have some time to do so. The difference this year is I actually have an idea.
By the way, my Tom Waits mix CD from the USA is fantastic. That is all.
