So lately I've been living a semi-normal life. I have my work,
occasionally I squirt radioactive stuff over myself, but otherwise I
work during the week, do my tai chi, exercise when I feel up to it,
and hang out with awesome friends on weekends. It's nice, I like the
feeling of routine, stability, belonging somewhere. In a big way I
think i've been not as frantic to go to the field as usual.
Unfortunately one of my friends LOVES drama. If there is no conflict,
she'll create it. If something starts she'll puppeteer those involved
and cause drama. As for her personal life...
We had to cancel Saturday's plans as chief goth was sick, so we hung
out at her house instead. At 10:30pm this girl arrived all upset, with
her boyfriend calling constantly and her refusing to speak to him. Of
course I got sucked into the whole thing... And I realised that I
don't need any more drama. No thanks. I'm going home now.
So today, partly in an effort to avoid irate family members who sat up
waiting for me, I headed off to the zoo where I had lunch with a
gorilla, scrubbed frog tanks, bonded with some awesome boa
constrictors, met the biggest tarantulas EVER, said hi to the baby
monkeys and hunted for a vanishing ape.
It was AWESOME! I'm ba-a-a-ack!
And it feels GREAT!
