- AFK with Kim one night before work. Their kitchen shuts at 9pm, who knew? We didn't. ;P

- Susan's farewell party. Hammond busted out The Cloak. Disappointing turnout to the party but those of us who were there had an awesome time. Well, not so much [livejournal.com profile] kellycurious. But we'll look back and laugh someday. Actually, I think we did that already today.

- Susan provided us with Nimbin cookies. Nimbin cookies are small, but pack a punch!

- Whole house is stunningly CLEAN.

- Chris leaves for Thailand tomorrow, won't be back 'til mid-Feb. Will miss the little tyke. Will not miss the constant Halo explosions coming through my floorboards. Which reminds me...

- Who wants to come over to my place for a Californication marathon soonish? :D Adders, you've got the discs ready to go: yes/no?

- Took Kim to the Moonlight Cinema for his birthday tonight, hooked Kelly in too. We saw 'Alien', which Kelly had never seen. I saw a satellite move across the sky. Joe saw moths in the projection beam and mistook them for shooting stars. He was having a 'Joment' - a Joe Moment.

- Should clarify previous point: I ran into Joe and Elizabeth there. We made up. A couple of days ago he sent me an email out of the blue saying he wanted to start talking again, so when I ran into him at Moonlight I figured it was a good time to make amends. I think we may all become friends again... I hope so. Joe and I were great as friends, we just kinda sucked as a couple. He's coming over sometime early this week to catch up. The time apart was necessary, I know, but I handled it stupidly. Ah well... my main regret is that I won't have much time to spend with Elizabeth before she has to journey south to the Great Libraries Of Canberra now. Blech, I epically failed at that young friendship... but it's never too late to make something work, even if it works differently to how it would've before.

Weight loss is sloooowwww but steady, which is the healthiest way to do it. I anticipate I'll hit my target weight by the end of my three-month non-dating period. Hmm, maybe I should make a ticker for that too, just to be a complete dork about it. [livejournal.com profile] dizzay has promised me cake at the end of the three months.

Tonight I went to Three Monkeys with my oldest friend, Vix / [livejournal.com profile] quillblade. Because of conflicting schedules and work-related tiredness it'd been a couple of months since we'd caught up properly, and I'd really missed her. Plans are afoot for me to head over to her and Jason and Peta's place and be schooled in the fine art of Portal. We didn't get nearly long enough to talk, but Vix will be joining us at AFK tomorrow night, which will be awesome - I have a feeling she's going to LOVE the place.

Chris has now officially left for Thailand and I won't see him for a month. Given that we usually see each other every single day, this feels quite weird! Good luck in Thailand, kiddo, watch out for those crazy hookers. Keep these three very special words in mind: "IT'S A TRAP!"

I have to stay back tomorrow morning for a meeting with my boss. I'm fairly certain that it's going to be good news... expect an excited journal entry around ten-ish tomorrow morning if so. Er, and if it's bad news I'll look like a right nitwit, but oh well.

For a couple of days now I've felt like someone who came close to death and has been given a second chance at life. Weird, I know, as I'm healthy as a horse. I think what I'm feeling is the slow realisation that I came really, really close to something irreversible happening, er, mentally... or emotionally... some kind of personality death. And now I'm grateful for every normal, functional moment; for every kind word from a friend; for every small bit of progress I make.
