so long

Friday Oct 21, 2011

You know when you’re a kid or teenager and the only “obligation” social events you had to go to were family related?

Being grown now it seems like half of my “social events” are obligations relating to friends.

There are hens nights, christenings, BBQ’s, birthday parties, after work drinks and dinners. And I like the people that are having these, yet most Saturday nights I find myself putting “fancy” clothes on (i.e. not my pyjamas) and dragging myself out somewhere to do something when I’d prefer to be at home, or catching a movie, or catching up with the people I’d like to catch up with when it’s convenient for both of us.

Maybe it’s because I don’t host stuff, maybe it’s because I’m a hermit and find socialising exhausting but this time of year is jam packed full of stuff and all I want to do is have a Saturday night at home watching Law & Order: SVU.

Work is grossly busy at the moment, we’re closing down our head office and moving everyone to other offices. It’s been a while since I’ve spent hours in a server room and crawled under desks plugging in phones but I’ve been doing that a lot. Carpet burns on knees are not sexy.

My summer of drunk plans are coming along swimmingly, one day a week involves vodka and it is good and I am enjoying it immensely. I’m also enjoying spending more time with Beth to be honest, it’s been years and years since we’ve just hung out and got sloshed and I really really enjoy it.

I’m thinking that I’ll close up this place soon, maybe move to tumblr and have something in my own name. I’ve been blogging for years and I’ve (touch wood) been very lucky that friend/family discovery of this place has been minimal.

I was thinking of giving Beth the web address for this page and opening it up, but I couldn’t tell if things I write or wrote about would offend her or other friends and I think that’s probably an indication that I would offend them.

I don’t want that, I don’t subscribe to that blogging philosophy of I’m just writing my feelings and if you’re offended by it suck it up. I care very much about hurting people I know by things I’ve said or wrote.

Besides I’m very fucking boring, my posts bore me and I’m sure they bore you too.

So yes, I’m signing out, if I set something up somewhere else I’ll write about it here.

Otherwise, thanks for all the fish my loves.

You are far too polite – the trick is to turn down all of the offers so that people stop inviting you altogether, leaving your weekends free for lovely nothingness. And of course you aren’t boring, I wouldn’t have been stalking you for this long if you were! I will miss your blog, but so long as you set something else up I will be happy. So you should totally do that.

Ah, you are far too kind. I’ve just set up a tumblr account, as soon as I start posting I’ll let you know.

It will be very odd to post under my real name.

I tend to turn down the regular stuff, go to the movies? Or stay at home and watch a movie with no pants on? Hmmm, tough.

But every one seems to be getting married or having babies or had babies and the invites are harder to say no to 🙁

Anyway, will see you around lovey.

I will sorely miss you. PLEASE, drop me a line and let me know where you’ll be so I can continue to check in on you (and you are not boring!)
I’ve completely enjoyed your blog and look forward to following the “real” Lucy as well.

heart breaking a little! Please post the new address as I love reading your posts. I did have a couple of blogs but I closed them down as I was using tumblr more often. I find it easier to simply post photos or short posts to there 🙂

Hey bub – your words will be missed, let me know where you end up on this wide inter-web so I may follow. Hope all is well, see you back in Oz maybe next year.

YAY tumblr party 🙂

You are describing my situation very well in this post, but since I am only 24 and my friends are already getting married have fifty babies etc. I kind of feel like my young adulthood is being seeped out of me because of their life choices…

see you on tumblr 🙂

I keep coming back hoping you will change your mind and will have a new post 🙁 I shall miss reading about what’s going on in your life and by all means if you make a new blog please let me know!

If you aren’t going to let us know where you’ve gone, we might have to resort to googling strings of words you commonly use to try and find you manually…

… don’t make me google “tumblr was antilogy poppalopagos cunt”.

Sorry that was uncalled for! 🙂 I’d love to know your new www though.

Chris, you made me snort laugh with your comment.

I’m still tossing up about the tumblr but I am on twitter under hello_tiger though if anyone wants a chat.

Thank you everyone, you are all amazing.
