Sunless day out in the sun

It's a beautiful night, but a little strange. I'm on the porch in the back, starry night, perfect temperature. The night is calm. I just got back from a run (well...more like a short run and then 45mins of fast walking.. I really can't do this unless I'm trying to catch a ball or running for my life) and I got lost. I know I just moved to this neighborhood but I still know it pretty well. And I didn't go far, or stray from what I knew, but I got lost. I just stopped, looked around, made a few steps in each direction to see if I would recognize something but I didn't. I went back they way I came (or so I thought...) and still nothing. Ashamedly enough, I had to use my Google maps app on my IPhone to find the way home... I felt so lost! Even following the path it gave me made no sense. I had left from the right, and arrived from the left. It made no sense. I still don't understand what happened.

A friend really close to my heart right now keeps on playing with my head. There are many things he does that I find not right, or just plain strange but yet I still feel pulled towards him. As I'm trying to find my way, I receive a text from him simply saying : Problem. I call him right away to find out what it is and also cause I was gonna call him anyway. I quit my job, cut my hair and thought I wanted to share that it was a great night for strolling in Westmount and these were all great reasons to give him a call. We call each other for the dumbest shit anyway all day long so have 3 subjects, 2 that are worth discussing, well that's just a plan for an awesome phone call. But he doesn't answer... I text: what's wrong? he says it's fine...I say I don't care and that he must call me anyway. He says" It's okay please. I ask where he is. He says "here but i can't text, it's too much." I say I know this which is why he should call me and stop sending mysterious texts and now I won't be able to sleep(again...grrreaattt...) He says don't be but I can't do this ttyl.

Like, wtf does that mean? Great way to make me nervous all night there bucko! Fuckin eh. I think he's one of the reasons for my not sleeping at night...I've got to stop him.

Anyway, today I wanted to go to the beach but Audrey made me drive her to Rawdon where the friends of our roommates go hangout on weekends. 2 hours, lots of traffic and no sun later, we got there. It actually was pretty fun.

Have you ever gotten lost somewhere close to home? Or have a friend that you are constantly aware of or worried about?

Currently listening to Warpaint, Burgundy


  1. I've been lost close to home, far from home, and even in my home. I'm what they call "directionally retarded"

    One time I was in Venice and walked around lost for 6 hours. Eventually some Italian soldiers escorted me to a boat and I made it out. Yikes.
    I blame that one on me flipping a coin to figure out left or right at each 'T' intersection.

    This guy sounds like head games and drama, but if you feel pulled towards him then you probably have a penchant for those things yourself.

    Most chicks do.

    You run with an Iphone?


  2. I am glad you are ok. Wait? You quit your job? You cut your hair? Did I read that right? maybe your friend needs to be less frantic and worry about you once in a while.

    Being lost in the city is un-nerving to say the least but I try to get lost in the mountains of Colorado on a semi-weekly basis. If I can't find society, they can't find me...its a win-win.

    I wish you the very best Princess Stone Fox...I just might have to worry about you a little bit as well.

  3. Ya I quit my job. Cut my bangs ( do the same mistake evvveerry summer. I like it for a few weeks then I hate myself for doing it!)

    I know right? He went totally Edward Cullen on me and I'm still trying to win this. Dumb, dumb, dumb!

    Well, I run(walk)with an IPod, so ya.. my phone is attached to it.
