It was quiet this weekend because pretty much everyone who lives in the northeast went home for the Columbus Day break. And even though my roommate is from California and therefore couldn't go home, she wasn't here for a while because she went on a little day trip all day Saturday. So I got to do whatever I wanted. I did some exploring on Saturday. Walked around the city a bit. (Well, until it started sprinkling and raining.) That was refreshing. I really like the fact that I can just walk around and look at things now, if that makes any sense. There wasn't anywhere to walk or anything nice to look at in my hometown. Oh, and that girl I accidentally upset is talking to me again, so that's a good thing. I feel really relieved about that because I can't stand it when people are mad at me. It always makes me feel like the world's biggest asshole. And now I don't feel like I should hide from my neighbors anymore like I've been doing for the past week. Very, very relieved.
My conversation with Cute Blonde Girl this morning took an interesting turn. I was telling her about some of my friends, and I mentioned how I have this one friend from high school who is talking to me again after ignoring me for a while. But literally all that friend cares about now is nerdy guys. (Yes, this specifically. They can only be nerdy guys. No other kinds. I guess it's kind of like me with blonde girls.) My friend is completely 110% boy-crazy all of a sudden, after not caring at all in high school, and she has to turn every single conversation we have into a discussion about this topic, sometimes very, VERY explicitly. It gets annoying sometimes. I told Cute Blonde Girl about it, and I said, "I just wish my friend would stop talking about guys literally every single time I try to talk to her about anything because I am so not interested in this topic AT ALL." She seemed disgusted by the idea of my friend's behavior and agreed with me. In retrospect, I am pretty sure that Cute Blonde Girl basically agreed that the topic of guys is not interesting. Hmm.
She doesn't do Halloween because the decorations and costumes are "too scary." But she asked me what my plans for Halloween are, and I don't really have any yet, but by asking, she seemed to imply that I should, so now I'm desperate to find something interesting to do so I can have a cool story to tell her. I still have a couple of weeks, but I'm starting to stress! She likes all other holidays except Halloween, though, especially Christmas. She's SO excited for Christmas already, and it's only October. God, she's the cutest. And ugh, I did the excessive laughter thing in front of her today. I can't believe I've gone this long without it happening. In high school, it was always a running joke that I laugh at EVERYTHING (and sometimes occasionally even nothing). I just can't help it. Today I started laughing at nothing, and she was so confused, and I had to explain my weird little quirk. Mildly embarrassing.
And she loves animals. There is literally nothing cuter than when a girl loves animals. I showed her pictures of my baby kittens (who aren't babies anymore, and I'm sad because at this rate, they're gonna be all grown up before I see them again!) and she loved them. So now I'm going to need my mom to send me a whole lot more pictures of them. And she understands that they are my "babies" because her cats are also her "babies." And she was talking about how much she loves husky dogs, so I showed her a picture of my friend's husky puppies from this summer, and she totally freaked out over them. Probably going to ask my friend if she's got any more pictures of those, but it's doubtful because she was selling them... Worth a try, though. If Cute Blonde Girl wants to see pictures of puppies, then she is going to see pictures of puppies, dammit.
But I'm kinda sad because the first weekend of November, she said she's going on a weekend trip, so I won't be able to hang out with her then. I shouldn't be sad already, but I can't help it!
We have a test coming up this week, and she wants to get dinner together and then study. I suggested studying together, and then she was like, "Let's get dinner together first." I said yes, of course. I'm very interested in finding out what exactly it is that she eats because she hates every food I can think of off the top of my head. Today she was going through the list of common foods that everyone seems to like except her. It was kind of funny, but it's really good to know I'll never have to share my precious mac and cheese with her! (Although, honestly, I totally would if she liked it. But I'd never, ever share it with anyone else, though. Mac and cheese is extremely serious business to Super Ducks.)
Oh, and she was listing all these places I haven't been to yet and said she might go to one next weekend, and that if she does, then I'm invited.
