On the booze front, I have not been perfect but I have been better. I know this isn't good enough, but am going to keep trying. That's all I can do, keep trying.
On the more amusing news front I have (DA DAAAAHHH!) met a new girl. She is without doubt the best looking girl I have ever met, absolutely beautiful. I know her through work but would never have considered approaching her - shes too young, too pretty, out of my league. However, upon mentioning to a mutual friend how lovely I thought she was, the mutual friend shocked me by replying - 'she likes you too, you know'.
I was extremely surprised but decided to test the waters and invited said lady and a couple of her friends along to some drinks after work on Friday (I know, I know). I was relatively good, managed to only have a few bottles of beer (I know, I know) and ended up sitting next to the lady in question at the end of the evening, having a really good chat and a laugh.
The next morning I woke up next to her. Oops. She'd come back to mine with a couple of other people and without anything happening, we'd ended up sitting up till about 4am at which point, we'd stumbled into the spare bedroom, crawled under a blanket and slept. When we woke up, at about 11, she immediately looked mortfied and yes, you've guessed it: shes got a boyfriend. She really likes me, is unhappy with him but they've just bought a place together. I immediately stated that I didn't want to be the guy that splits someone up (even though secretly in my head I was thinking exactly that) and we parted company, with a very strange feeling in the air.
I really like her and am old enough to know its not always so straightforward as meeting someone you like when you are both single. But, I really don't want to be a snidey bastard and therefore won't see her again unless she's single which probably means she will stay with him.
I don't know how I keep managing to pull it out of the bag, I really don't. I'm special.
