9:47p - Merry Christmas
Dave's been busy. Wow what's happened the past week and a half? Frenzied Christmas shopping, Midnight Santa runs to drop all the presents off.
Speaking of presents, hope everyone got what they wanted, I got some pretty cool ones.
So in the past week, here's what happened with Mel and me. Last Thursday, before we did some christmas shopping, we hit up Roy's for a couple of drinks. we get to talking about the current guy she's dating, David. She tells me that she isn't really feeling this guy, plus the guy tans. You know what I mean? He actually pays money to get tan. OK so anyway, we have a couple of laugh over this and other stuff, and you know the point in a conversation where you know you just clicked with the other person? we reached that point, she was the first to say something, I don't know if it was the martinis talking or what but she was like,
"you know... If you weren't asian or mexican... I'd like you!"
(I'm guessing the mexican stems from the fact that I live with 2 mexicans and I salsa...)
Anyway, I don't know if I should be offended or happy, So I respond with
"oh yeah? Well, if you weren't so hard-headed or stubborn, maybe I'd like you!!"
That night was one of the more insightful nights between us in a while.
The very next evening, we have the Christmas dinner for work. A female coworker asked me, "so, what are you gonna get Melissa?"
I didn't know at that time, since the gift I did get her got screwed up by the company that I ordered it with, it was time for plan B and I didn't have one.
So She said," You kinda set yourself up, since you got her something from Tiffany's last time. What are you going to do to live up to that?"
I know... I can't do Tiffany's again, unless it's something special. so I gotta think hard.
"I know what she's gonna get you, and you're gonna like it!"
I have no idea what she's talking about.
So now my hopes are all up.
But... at dinner, we all had a few drinks since it was on the boss. Then a joke came at Mel's expense. She didnt seem mad. But after we get dropped off by a friend, she didnt seem too happy at all. She says it was because, I laughed along with the table at the joke. I try to salvage the situation by denying it, but to no avail.
I ask, " do you mind if I come in to wait for Jorge and Mike to pick me up"
She's says, "yes"
So she reluctantly lets me in and I try to defend myself, but she won't let up. So I'm like, " I'm going to be gone for 4 days, you know"
she just lifts up her hand and storms off.
When Mike and Jorge get there, Mike tries to help me out by knocking on her door and trying to talk to her, but she wouldnt answer.
Told you she's stubborn.
Anyway, we leave and i lock up. We end up going downtown. Wasn't too fun, since I was preoccupied with Melissa the whole time. Geez, I am too stuck on this girl. So I haven't talked to her since then. I'll probably talk to her this week, whenever she gets back from her Christmas trip. Hopefully, she's still getting me a gift, because I have a gift for her. Wish me luck.
Thing about Christmas Day or any major holiday for that matter, is that if you don't have a family dinner, finding good food will be very difficult. Asian food or diner food, hmm what shall I choose.
I need to wake up at 3am or so tomorrow morning. Super Shuttle is picking me up at 4:30 AM. Flight's at 7AM, I get home hopefully by 9:15 then to work by 9:30. Cutting it close I know...
current mood: indescribable
