Weekend from Hell

Who here likes working weekends, anyway? I used to, because I had no social life, but it seems that the Bay Area members of the LiveJournalers seem to like to get together on days they don’t work. Now, I’m not sure if anyone knows what I do for a living, but let me just say that it involves me being oncall 24×7, and that often times means being called at very inappropriate times of day/night/morning/whatever. It’s pretty much what I signed on for, to be the guy they count on to cover a shift or to cover the hours between shifts if need be. In honesty, I really enjoy exhibiting the flexibility because I can do it. But sometimes there are weekends where I would love for the phone to just not ring. This was one of those weekends.

I worked all day Saturday and most of Sunday, and I ended up meeting for the first time and she was so not what I pictured, but then again, I didn’t have much of a picture to go by. At least she didn’t opt to take BART back, which was good for me because I had a lot of fun at the party and afterward. It just sucks that she’s moving to NYC now that we could add her to our little group; but I’m looking forward to BWE2005. 🙂 At Tap’s party, I also met quite a few others, but y’know… I’ve already forgotten names, but not faces. It’s because I know people by their livejournal names.

Oh, and James… dude, you booked right after. We were hanging out outside the restuarant and there was a vapor trail instead of you. 😛 Hilarious.

    I was really worried that people wouldn’t get along. Fortunately, everyone had a good time and things were cool.

    I wasn’t. Everyone loves me (in my mind).

    One of my friends asked if Dustin bolted because he saw you and made the connection that you were Mike/, and the friend I talked to noted tension between you two. I didn’t catch it if you were hostile or unwelcome towards Dustin and vice-versa but I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case. Heh. Plus he was withdrawn, passive-aggresively surly and unneccesarily snarky at a friends’ wedding anniversary party a few weeks back and I was afraid he’d act the same way last night. It’s a bad sign when you can’t count on your friends to act like damn adults on your birthday.

    Truth be told I was a little upset that he left but I knew he wouldn’t have a good time there, which was why I didn’t invite him in the first place. I was more upset about him leaving than him actually being there, if that makes sense. I’d just rather he not show at all if it was gonna be like that. I know he’s stressed out and sick from the movie–we all are. But I knew something would go down. Fortunately it was a small something.

    There was tension? I didn’t even known he was Dustin until he said goodbye. 🙂 Unless the tension was of his own device, not mine. That’s why I was wondering why he was leaving so early. I honestly didn’t say more than “Hi,” to him at the beginning and that was pretty much it.

    Again, a friend pointed it out to me and I didn’t notice it either. If he does dislike you it’s because I talk about you a lot and like you better. 🙂

    Sometimes, I wish I could hear some of this chatter. 😉 and I like you better, too. 🙂

    It’s about as credible as hearsay, because actually talking to Dustin about something that could/would upset him is pointless, so it’s often just not done.

    • jetblack on June 6, 2005 at 17:07

    Okay, now I’m really curious. He’s been saying negative things about me? Holy crap. 🙂

    No. I just get the vibe that he dislikes or resents you, as he has in the past with all males who get close to me, dating or otherwise.

    Heh. After I said goodbye, I went back to the bathroom for a few more minutes, then hurried out to catch the BART train. Perfect timing, too – I only had to wait a couple minutes for it.

    I didn’t notice if any of you were still around, but I didn’t check because I figured everyone had left.
