Slow news day

Not much to report at the mo. Not a lot terribly interesting going on.

I got to speak (too briefly) with Hendrix-Cat for the first time over the weekend, which was a treat.

The l'il pooper was having a problem with constipation, which had Vi in hysterics for 2 days, but a little KY in the bum did the trick and everything's moving along nicely now at that end. (This is the last time I will ever post anything about a baby's BMs, I promise.)

I finally took the restrictors off my windows so I can get some cool air in at night and sleep. (It was so hot in my flat I actually got heat rash on my ass.) Did the same in the kitchen. Holy air ciruculation, Batman!

Had a bit of a nasty email exchange with the Hairy Man. When I broke up with him I told him I'd pay for the French holiday we'd booked. This week he emailed me the invoice for the cancellation fee and asked me to reimburse him. I put the checque in the mail that evening; he received it the next day, and propmtly sent me an email saying he knows i'm short of cash and will therefore not cash the cheque. !!! Exasperating. He aslo said some very nasty, condescending, insulting, and hypocritical things. Not like him at all. No idea what to make of it, but it's making me feel like shit all over again, just when I was starting to get it together. Hm. Maybe that was his plan all along, who knows.

Things are wonderful with the Pirate. He phones me or texts me every night to say goodnight and send a kiss. My day isn't over until I've head his voice and know he's OK. He's coming for dinner tomorrow night. I think I'll bake a lasagne.


's about it, really. I hope your lives are more exciting, but given the disticnt paucity of fresh posts among my imaginary friends this week, i suspect we're all equally apathetic at the mo.

CB neglects to mention that we were both so gobsmacked at the realisation that the other one actually existed outside of the blogosphere neither of us could think of anything to say!

Re Hairy. The mature response to rationalising his behaviour is to say that this is normal and he's upset and hurt and lashing out and hoping that by saying these things you reply to his email either by refuting what he's said or by giving vent to some choice character assassination of your own. Either way he's opened up a dialogue between the two of you. The normal response to this behaviour however, is to call him a wanker as you delete his email. Don't worry about it, don't get upset about it, just ignore it and get on with the Pirate.

Does this mean that you and the Pirate are Going Out???

I wouldn't worry about Hairy. He's just been dumped (out of the blue as far as he was concerned) so he's entitled to be bitter and twisted. He'll get over it, just don't blame yourself.

well, spin, besides the nightly (often lengthy) phonecalls, on our third date he did ask me if i would like to come to india with him for two weeks in februrary. he's obviously thinking well into the future, and to be honest, so am i, so in response to your question i'm inclinced to say HELLS YEAH!

I think I saw Hairy at Ashton Court Festival on the weekend (blog celebrity spotting- if that doesnt count as "crap spot of the week" inheat...). He didn't look too heartbroken. I wouldn't worry.

Chaucer's Bitch said...

Loganoc, you scare me sometimes. You found my flatmate, you found my x, you'll coming for me next!

re: hairy. Was he lying on a blanket with 4 other people, surrounded by empty Heineken bottles and stoned off his tits? If so then yep, that was him.

"Lying on a blanket surrounded by empty Heineken bottles and stoned off his tits?"

Could describe quite a few people at Ashton Court...

First Nations said...

I wanna talk to Hendrix tooooooo!

hairy is just acting out being dumped. delete the email. anyone who calls the 'schmuggleware cuteitude experience'* stinky deserves at least that. butthole.

*like the 'Jimi Hendrix Experience' but without all the aspiration of vomit stuff.

No Shit Sherlock said...

I couldn't think of anything to say about the baby... But ignore Hairy. He's jsut bitter 'cause he's realised that you are the best thing that happened and he threw it away. And also...

YOU KNOW POLARI!!!!
'Fantabulosa!'
Heh. Closet Kenneth Williams fans unite...

What's that saying?

"The Best Way of Getting Over Someone is to Get Under Someone Else"

Tee hee!

In a sense the cheque incident strikes me as quite classy. It's a way of pointing out your 'moral responsibility' but also shows a bit of decency in the not-cashing bit. Or it's petty.

I agree that he's entitled to feel bitter. I also agree that you were right to finish with him. that's hte thing about human relationships. None of us acts perfectly all the time; most of us get hurt sometime. We're human beings, and adult ones at that. Not computers.
