You know people at work who you only talk to over the phone, but you build up a good relationship with?

We have a supplier in Melbourne who I’ve been speaking to daily since I started this job about a year ago. Great guy, funny and helps us out all the time. Bit of an Australian bloke but slightly metrosexual in a ‘I’m not taking it at all seriously”, so very easy to talk to so we chat as friends, I bag him, all good.

Then last week I find out he’s tremendously good looking. Now it’s all awkward because man, how can I tease the man? I get fumbly and bumbly around ridiculously good looking men, it’s just part of my style and so when I found out he was flying to Sydney for lunch with me and our wonderful admin girl I got nervous. Who gets nervous in business meetings and lunches? You chat, you eat, you bullshit, you go back to the office. Easy.

And of course in person he’s even funnier, and he’s all manly and grrr like and dammit I have a crush on a work person again.

Eh, at least it gives me something to do during the day.

It feels like only last month when I decided to stay at home for New Years. Now we’ve got to decide what we’re doing again this year. While Beth was happy to humour me last year in staying at home she’s having nothing to do with me trying to do it again this year so I’m having to go out. Since we’re old enough and wise enough to avoid the city and nightclubs I guarantee we’ll have a house party where I will have a great time but will only get kissed by Beth at midnight. And that’s (thankfully) closed mouth no tongue. So K and I, as the only single girls in the group are making a rule, there has to be new people, gay girls for her, nice nerd boys for me.

That will be a good night that I’m willing to leave my house for.

Oh, and in amazing news I’ve found and bought the dress for this upcoming wedding, it’s cute, it’s simple, it’s nice and it’s what I wanted.

Thank you jebus. 

As a favour to me can no one who I know get married soon? I cannot handle the pressure of the dress search again.

Mr. Guinness:

Yeah, I can relate. Long ago in a far off galaxy had the same thing happen. Used to tease and have fun with this girl I did business over the phone with and then one day met her. Being the bumbly, stumbling type at that point was a good thing as i was married, but it always cracked me up what a difference not actually meeting someone face to face can make in your interactions with them. Maybe that’s one reason I love the “blogging”. Odds of a “face to face” are small, folks all have thier own lives, and whatever. The one time I did meet someone live the same “bumbleness occurred, even then. I guess that’s part of life nad all you can bring yourself to say is something exteremely stupid like, “So what kind of computer do you have?” —-DUH!

Making eyes at guys who provide supplies? Hypnotised by their prized thighs and the rise that hides beneath the tips of their ties?

Sorry, um, it seems like all I have to contribute tonight is porno poetry… I’ll shut up.

Ooh, so pretty!

And the guys who we speak to on the phone but never see are a hot topic of conversation at my work. People place bets on which ones are good looking. And then rumours fly around that *someone* has reportedly seen one of them, and that he is actually attractive, and everyone gets all giggly. It’s a bit sad, really.

I hate new years, I always feel pressured to go out and have an amazing time, and if I don’t I feel like a saddo when people ask “So what’d you do for new years?” Ugh. Sometimes I think people with babies have it easy at new years lol.

But that is of course, only at new years.

Loving the dress btw 🙂

Bloody hell that’s a gorgeous dress.

I have nothing intelligent to say about anything else, sorry. Except to snort childishly at the porn poetry. :p

You guys are seriously the best when it comes to comments, between Daniel’s mermembers and Mark’s porn poetry, and the excellent taste in dresses and the same stranger caller stalking, best commenters ever.
