I found out that some people I used to be friends with are now on the other side of the country for a wedding. I used to call the groom my best friend. He said it didn’t matter what happened we would be friends. I really did try. I am despondent now. Sorry, I needed to be cryptic, I think. Maybe.
Friendships used to seem like such a permanent thing to me. And I don’t know why, I grew up an Air Force brat, every 4 or 5 years we would up and move. Most places we lived I can remember having friends that I swear we wouldn’t loose contact with, but always did. Maybe they feel permanent because the friendship was always ended because of outside forces, because my parents made me move. But now it seems like people get mad and that leads to gossip and the produces bickering and other strife. Once things start going downhill it’s a free for all, faction’s form, people choose sides and we cozen away. It’s all that part of human nature that ruins politics and allows for reality TV and soap operas. I wish there was a way to kick that-part-of-human-nature’s ass. Cause I’d tell some people all the bad things it has done and we’d all get pissed off and gather up some people to beat it up.
Took the day off from wushu yesterday, but Kelly did take me to see Pirates of the Caribbean, which I enjoyed immensely. It was much better than I expected, and that in and of it self makes for a good movie.
Anyone got a copy of Speaker of the dead they wanna give me? I bet B&N does…
