I’m going to a ‘thing’ tonight.  It’s a meet-up of London bloggers.  Now I know that I’ve only just started blogging again, but I’ve been doing it on and off for years, and I find bloggers just goddamn interesting (although I’m a very ‘scratch the surface’ kind of gal, and bore easily, so very in-depth blogs about specific subjects bore me – I prefer just being nosey about people’s lives!)

But I’m shy.  I really really am shy.  I’m fine in a group of people I know, but my heart goes ten to the dozen (that’s a stupid phrase…what does it even mean?) when I have to meet new people.  I try not to let it get to me, and not to stop me from doing things, but it really does fill me with apprehension.  So I have been feeling sick all day knowing that I’m pushing myself to go and do this tonight.  which I know is stupid, and I know that people who know me find hard to understand, but i have to go through every single time I do something new.  I’ve puked twice already!

On a totally different note – The Girl is still doing her blog, and her entry yesterday made me laugh so much (she shows me all of her posts anyway) that I asked if I could show my friends, which she said “Yes!”, so here it is (just as a not, Afia is a really nasty piece of work girl in her class who has caused The Girl all sorts of misery for the past couple of years) :

The best day ever invented was probably today because… MAYBE BECAUSE MY BFF SARA IS NOW MY PERMANENT FRIEND EVER!!! Yes she is. she called my arch enemy afia a big fat ugly…TOAD!!! It was the funniest thing to see afia actually looking like a toad all goggled eyes and wide open mouth. so that was the highlight of my day.

I love her.
