Thanksgiving and the Clock Ticking Away
Before I go into my usual entry I forgot to mention that when Alina and I were out last weekend, we saw Tara Reid at Lincoln Road. It never gets old when I see celebrities out on Lincoln Road. I’m sure there will be tons of more it happening in Los Angeles!
Thanksgiving was great! We had it at my cousin’s house. Iris was very excited that I was bringing some of my friends along. It was monumental for me because this was the first time that I had brought friends over to a family outing. It’s almost as if I had two different worlds. My family world and my friend world. It’s nice to know that I was able to blend the two and have such a nice time without any stress and anxiety. Thank you lexapro! Rafael, Tommy, Susie, and her brother BJ joined us for the festivities. We all had a great time and I’ll be posting some of the pics in a Thanksgiving Day gallery.
It was such a success that Iris invited everyone over for Noche Buena, which is when Cuban’s celebrate Christmas Eve. It’s bigger than Christmas for us. That’s when the cuban food comes out and we roast the pig That should be very fun too. It will also be the last get together with my family before I move out to Los Angeles. Tommy asked me if I was going to miss it, and honestly I’m going to miss it a whole lot. I’m reaching that age of 30 when you start reconnecting with your family. I hope to be down in Miami for lots of visits. I think my job is flexible enough in that I will be able to work from Miami once a week every other month
I went to go buy the Nintendo DS at Best Buy the other day while I was working at my parents house. It was quite a day. I did get the nintendo DS which is amazing, I’m so glad I bought it before the Thanksgiving holiday, I hear that all the stores have none in stock. When I went to get it I saw Roly. I didn’t know what I was going to say, but I think I was less nervous than he was. He told me the usual and I told him that I really wanted to talk to him. Frank had given him the email I sent him detailing how I really missed having him as a friend. He told me he would call me after Black Friday but he never did.
Instead I called him on Thanksgiving day. We had a long time and it felt like old times. But I never know with him if he’s going to keep up the friendship or drop it. He explained that the reason that we lost touch was because we had an arguement one day and I blew up at him. I honestly don’t remember the arguement but to me it doesn’t sound right that you don’t talk to someone for this long of a period. Whatever the reasons I do hope that we are able to bridge our friendship. It is the oldest friendship that I have and it would be awful to not have it.
Luis is the only friend now that is still estranged. I honestly don’t know why he stopped talking for such a long period of time. I honestly didn’t think he was going to be this flaky of a friend. I knew that he ignored Billy completly since Gainesville but I somehow thought I was a stronger friend. I guess I was wrong. I feel betrayed when I think about all the things that I suffered through to keep his friendship. I really will never understand it until I have the chance to talk to him about it. But I think that might not happen anytime soon. Whenever I tried calling him or emailing him he never returns my queries. Very strange.
This weekend was very eventful indeed. Instead of working as hard as I wanted to on school I spent a whole day hanging out with Susie and Rafael. We decided to go to Cupid’s because Kevin was going to join us. Kevin had to cancel at the last minute so it was me, Susie, Rafael, and Tommy. I knew there was going to be drama with Rafael but whatever!
Susie really like the club. She was a bit shy but I know she liked it. The same hot strippers were there and there were two that I hadn’t seen before. It didn’t take more than 30 minutes for Rafael to act irrational and want to go home. Since we all came in my car he took a cab all the way back to the beach. He says it was because he was bored and he felt seedy but the truth is, it’s because he was with Tommy. If he was there alone he would have been fine. I’ll never fully understand why he gets like that but it definatley takes away from the good time that we all had!
When Rafael and Tommy left we ran into two friends of mine. They went to high school with Brandi and live down in Miami. They are very nice and we spent the rest of the night together. Hopefully they will be coming to my going away party. We also saw Dan from The Real World Miami at Cupid’s. The gay one. He looked a bit goofy but he looked like he was having a good time
I’m a little nervous about my party because I hope everything is planned out and people have fun. I don’t want it to be awkward and boring. I have my fingers crossed. This is my going away party so I want drunk people and drama. We will be going to Twist or Cupid’s after, although I think it will be Twist. Dunno yet. It’s slated for December 18th, so if you wanna come and Rafael hasn’t called you, call or email me
Last night Alina and Frank came over. It was the first time Frank saw my place. They were at Lincoln Road having dinner so they came over later to have desert and some coffee. After showing Frank the place we settled down and watched Hedwig and the Angry Inch. It’s one of my favorite movies. I know Alina liked it a lot but I’m not sure Frank was into it. If you haven’t seen the movie check it out, it’s even better if you can check it out live in a theatre. It is too much fun. Way better than Rent if you ask me
That’s it for now. I’ll be leaving for Los Angeles on Friday so I should have a place to stay soon!!! Wish me luck.
