Social Experimentation

16 Feb

Here I am. Sitting, typing, waiting for something to appear on the page.

Tonight I’ll be attempting a new sort of social experiment. You see, I don’t have many friends and none that live near me (aside from Dear Hubby). So, I did the crazy thing and went to meetups.com to look for more lonely people in my area. I found a group that tonight is going out to a local bar for karaoke and drinks. I’m a bit nervous having never met any of them and never having done something like this before. So, I guess we’ll just see how it goes.

I’m feeling pretty ok on the mood front lately. I feel happy and stable so let’s hope we can make that last for as long as possible.

The past couple days have been kind of rainy. I love the rain. There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting on the balcony with a book and a cup of tea just reading with the sound of the rain in the background against the soft and cloudy light. I’m almost done with my latest read: A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin… still one more book out for that series to go. I really enjoy those books. They pull you in and won’t let you go. He writes in a way that always keeps you guessing because it seems that no character, no matter big or small, is safe from the threat of spontaneous death. He kills off main characters left and right. I started with a favorite character and my favorites have changed so many times now… I just love the whole thing. I have yet to see the HBO series based on the books. I’d like to when I’m done reading them. There’s also plans for a video game that would be interesting to play.

Speaking of video game… so excited about the prospect of the Doctor Who game for PS3 being released this year.  I just cannot get enough Doctor Who these last few weeks.

Anyway, I don’t have much to say, but I did manage to put some things on the page after all. If I kept going  it’d be nonsensical rambling so I’m off to head home and get ready for tonight.

    Love these little ramblings. I don’t have many friends as well. I have a lot of acquaintances online. More than 700 friends on Facebook but I barely know everyone. I just kind of accept whoever sends request. It doesn’t hurt. 😉

    Yesterday night it was kind of raining. It’s winter season so we don’t really expect rains. But the type of weather I love appeared yesterday. I love when it’s cloudy. When cool breeze flows just like it’s going to rain but it never rains. Not that I don’t like rains, but the reality that the street here gets seriously muddy doesn’t make me hope for rains that much.

      I’ll admit I only like rain when I can enjoy it from some warm and dry vantage point 😛
