Friends and Wizards

Well, I finally borrowed the new Harry Potter from my sister and finished it this afternoon. That was a nice peaceful way to spend a sunday! Now that I'm finished, of course, I want to read all the HP spoiler posts I've been carefully avoiding for the past few weeks. But I don't remember who posted anything... so if you posted anything about HP, feel free to point me to it. Or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, or Batman, come to think of it. I've recently caught up on all of them -- but no spoilers for anything else! I'm generally in the dark about most things.

Speaking of being in the dark, my social life has gotten rather haphazard. I've been working so much, and traveling almost 50% of the time. When I finally am home, I spend my time trying to catch up on home-type stuff, like laundry, bills, petting my cats. I spend some time just relaxing and recuperating from being on the road so much, catching up on my sleep, de-stressing, that sort of thing.

I hardly ever see my friends, unless somebody specifically invites me out to do something at a time when I am free. I haven't been making much of an effort to get together with anybody otherwise, and I certainly haven't been scheduling anything with my friends.

That's not cool. I miss my friends! I need to do something about this -- although my schedule is complicated enough that whenever I start thinking about scheduling something, I start to feel overwhelmed.

Basically I only see people who invite me to stuff. And even keeping up with those invitations is a challenge. It's funny to, because I'll sometimes hear other friends mentioning doing stuff without me, and I'll think, "Wait, why wasn't I invited?"

Then I'll remember: oh yeah, it's because I've fallen off the face of the earth. I never have time for anything. Naturally if I don't call anybody, don't suggest doing anything, I won't stay foremost in folks' minds.

So what I'm saying here is: eventually I do want to get together with friends live and in person. The computer's not enough for me, even if that's the only way I make contact with most non-work people these days. I don't know when, because I'm still swamped, but I'm gonna make it happen. I'm gonna make this dream come true! For me and youuuuu......

(ahem, sorry, distracted) Eventually, I promise. In the meantime, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, I swear. I'm dangling from the edge maybe, but with luck I'll come crawling back sometime don't forget about me. (:
