So this week has been quite the interesting one. To start out, I found out that Kelli and her friend Carin are coming up this weekend to visit and show Carin the Scottsdale area. I am so excited! It has been too long since I’ve seen Kelli, and the last time the three of us hung out it was a grand time. I decided that we are going to go karaoke-ing at Tilted Kilt Sunday night and hang out with my friends there.
Then, my ex and long-time friend Didi and I got reacquainted through Facebook a couple of days ago and hung out this past week (Thursday I think) for the first time in four years. It was a blast hanging out, FAR LESS awkward than I thought it was gonna be. I mean, what exactly do you say to an ex you haven’t seen after four years? I had a smoothie and we walked around Tempe Marketplace just catching up and talking about ourselves and our families. She’s had quite the adventure. I found it incredibly strange on how different she is, and yet so close to the same thing. She said the same about me.
Speaking of change, that weekend, she invited me how to Mill with her and her sister. It’s really interesting to me to hang out with people in these situations that you knew when you were younger. I’m pretty sure they didn’t know I drank, because I was gung ho against it when we last hung out 4 years ago. Anyhoo, the three of us hit the street and had a great time. I’m not giving detail for their sakes (I was the sober one), but I will say I was named “body guard” by drunk Ashley by the end of the night.
So this PAST Sunday, I decide to meet up with Didi at Tilted Kilt for Karaoke. Mike and I were SO close to getting her to sing. She promised that if she comes out this next Sunday she will. Tilted Kilt is a great place for Karaoke, by the way, and any and all are invited. LOTS of regulars, I go there all the time! J Tilted Kilt played this game called Genre Blitz or something of that nature, and I got stuck with TV show tunes. So I ended up singing Fresh Prince of Bell Air.. Did you know that is an actual song? Like, not just the beginning of a TV show? I had NO idea! So lyrics came up that I didn’t know and I ended up pretending, but eventually said, “Yeah I had no idea what these lyrics are, we’re just gonna wait.” The crowd laughed.
I had far more serious post I was going to write last night, but I have decided against it, as I don’t think I have found the right words to make it an OK post quite yet. But find me the right words, and the I won't refrain from said post :).
Till Later Days.
