A lil game of catching-up...


Yesterday was one of those days where there was no red light in sight & I just pushed forward with my life. I got a new touch screen cell phone!! I kinda feel like Zack Morris with this huge phone but I like it!!! I dumped a whole bunch of phone numbers too that I’ll NEVER have to look at again. There’s no point of keeping my ex from 6 years ago’s phone #. He’s not Aidan & I won’t accidentally see him in Europe. But doing so made me realize how far I’m come in my life & all for good reasons. I’m glad I don’t get the 5am call to go pick up some idiot I thought liked me, or have to deal with the drama of this or that set of friends. It’s refreshing. Also I did find some numbers of people I wish I could back in touch with. I love those lunches & hang-outs where you catch up with people. One of the ultimate tests of true friends I believe is that if you hang out with them after a huge chunk of time has passed & it’s like No time has passed, you pick up right where you left off…then it’s real friendship.

I need to do a whole lot of catching up. My lil girl cousin, whom I’m written about that I don’t have much of a friendship with, is now home & I’m going to give it a shot to try and be her friend. I don’t mean we have to hang out every weekend or be best friends but I wish she was more in my life. Maybe it’s because I’m an only child that it bugs me that we’re not close, even tho we live about 15 minutes apart. I’m going to get my nails done next week…I’m going to see if she’ll go with me. It’ll be a start…a much needed start.

I of course need to catch up on everyone blogs that I love so much! I’m posting at a the morning 11:11 but it’ll give me later to do some reading. *Make a wish* Something I love about blogging is that it brought so many different worlds to my reading pleasure. People live so differently & no so many random things & it amazes me. Can’t wait to see what I find today!

Lately I’ve been going to a lot of book signings, & there are still more coming up!! The store called Bookends in Ridgewood, NJ has been getting a lot of awesome people that Omg I can’t imagine where I would get the chance to meet some of them so I’m running with the chance. Next on my list…PAT BENATAR!!!

Yup!! “Love is a battlefield” Queen herself wrote a book & she will be signing it on June 14th. I’m going to TRY to go. I imagine it’s going to be swamped there but you can buy the book the day before the signing so as long as I got the book I think it’ll be okay. I don’t care how long I’ll have to wait!!

That it’s for me today, I gotta get some work done before I get in trouble! Later!!

ur such a cutie - always honest and thoughtful! - great lil post lovey! - i too feel it's great about blogging to learn about other people around the world and connect with them - opens your eye's to so many new things!!!

and DEF get rid of ex-boyfriend - they are ex's for a REASON! - never ever go to an ex - u made him that for some reason or another - ya know! .. *kisses*

and i too - have friends where i can go MONTHS without seeing or even talking to them - then we get together and it's like we were never apart - that's TRUE friendship!

*kiss kiss*

Purging old numbers is always very therapeutic!

Enjoy the book signing - I love Pat Benatar! She's a total badass!

I agree that catching up is the best! I have a friend I see only once or twice a year but it's always as if no time has passed when I see her! Good luck with your cousin!

it is so good to get rid of some numbers and make note of ones that need following up on. sometimes friendships fade fairly quickly if we don't make an effort to keep them alive.

just wanted to say you have such a cute blog!

I just adore your posts so much!!! It’s good to do a spring cleaning in your phone...I should do the same...I am so happy for you. It’s so good that you realized that its time to move on and start fresh...I also have a few people with who I would love to go for a coffee ...I might call them up soon :)
Kisses sweetie and don’t get into too much trouble...hahahaahaha

LOl. I agree. Loose the ex-boyfriend's telephone number - unless you are very good friends;-)
It's nice to do something with a friend and family member one values. Friendships are like relationships and marriages - they require upkeep;-)

deleting phone numbers is one of the simplest, but most effective ways to move on. the minute I moved out of old room this past semester I deleted that girl's number, it was a good feeling

I love getting together with someone, and you haven't skipped a beat. Those are definitely the friends you just can't live without. Sadly, it seems like they're the ones you have to miss...

I'm sure your cousin will enjoy a manicure. I'm very rarely girly, and I *love* being pampered.

I know exactly what you mean about "one of the ultimate tests of true friends." I have a few friends that I feel this way about...we don't see each other all time but when we do, it's like no time has passed! I also believe it is better to have a few true friends than a lot of friends just for the sake of having friends. Congrats on your new phone by the way, how fun!!! Have a wonderful day, Love. :)

I've actually heard of Bookends, but Pat Benatar wrote a book.

Hey, if you visit me again (I know you did), you missed a post where I revealed 70 things about me -- you're one of the bloggers I wanted to read this post just because....http://littlemsblogger.blogspot.com/2010/06/70-things-about-me.html

Good for you for dumping the numbers you don't think you should have anymore - I find it really hard to do that; I am a hoarder in every bit of my life. But it's healthier the way you have done it.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Congrats on the new phone, Morris! LOL! Seriously, that's awesome.

And good luck with your cousin. I really hope you are able to work out a friendship there. Being an only child as well, I definitely understand the want to tighten that relationship, especially since she lives so close by.

And good luck with Pat too! I hope you get there and meet that fab rock and roll diva! xoxo

Pat Benatar RULES. I'd like to try to go to this too.
