Friends

Growing up should read groaning up.

Friends can be such an annoyance - one begging me for honesty after nine drinks (brief catalogue involves 3 cocktails, 1 shot, various bottles of beer) and then moaning behind my back to my other friends, who she doesn't know that I had upset her. Boo hoo. Ask a dumb question get a dumber response. Sorry I hurt your feelings, but if it's tact you want then choose your time.

They can be a source of excellence - talking about the new Star Wars trailer whilst skivving off work, free-styling in the Fitzwilliam about Turkey Basters and Sausages, planning what we'll see up table mountain and scaring the shit out of me by mentioning that the Cable Car is going to revolve.

It can be a balancing act - two friends wrecking my head in work, expecting me to do everything for them while listening to woes which I actually know are self-constructed - the same two raging party ladies of the excellent variety...

Cats, at least you know where you are with them, those angry balls of furry rage.

To cat-ship, down with friendship, I don't think I can be bothered anymore!

Predictably Peopled

Nip and Tuck won a Golden Globe for best TV drama. I pause and wonder why I was watching in the first place. Head shakes, unintended sigh escapes, blow of the nose, I stand up and turn off the TV. Had only switched it on for a few seconds.

Big mistake. Should have stayed watching the Spaced DVD, avoided unnecessary pain and anguish, avoided the real world in other words.

At dinner they were talking about Desperate Housewifes and I wanted to leave.

The TV pages in the Observer magazine had a sarky piece about how irritating and smug non-TV watchers are. I disagree.

I seem to disagree more and more and inevitably become outwardly more irritating and smug.

A load of bollocks. Just wish the days would start to lengthen again, in a few weeks it will be okay, I can sit outside in the bleak March sun reading a book. Meanwhile there's the gym or tv or both.
