Four-day working weeks so rule.

What with being ill on Thursday (see previous diary - go on, no-one's commented in it yet, you knows you wants to) I had a very long long weekend, which I heartily recommend. I spend the time mostly procrastinating, getting on with the decorating, catching up on my TeeVee backlog, looking after my daughter, and chatting on MSN¹ which seems to be turning into something of a new pastime.

1 Note to pedants, that should of course be "Windows Live Messenger", but MSN has stuck as a name

My parents are lending me their spare 21" TV, so a fair amount of my free time has been spent catching up on stuff I recorded on Sky+ but couldn't be bothered to watch on the crappy little portable. I so need to replace the flat screen I let my ex and daughter have, but that will have to wait; I have a long list of Stuff to Buy, and that's not at the top right now.

Things with $girl have been clarified, and as predicted there's nothing happening there. We are going to stay friends though, which is good as she seems cool and we get on pretty well.

The friend I met on Wednesday night (let's call her Rock Chick) seems to have different ideas though... I was chatting to her the other night online, and conversation turned to what the situation was regarding $girl². I explained, and was rather taken aback by her response, which was somewhat less than complimentary, involving suggestions of dog-related violence. Ok, fair enough, she's defending a mate, but I had already said that I was cool with it and that we were staying friends. Bear in mind though that this is the girl I had a brief thing with last year...

2 I really need to think of a suitable pseudonym

My daughter had a doctor's appointment yesterday, as there was some concern that she might be starting puberty early. Thankfully the specialist she saw (referred to by her GP, so it's not just paranoid parents!) declared everything to appear normal. They took some blood for tests just in case, and will see her again in 6 months for a check-up, but right now all seems well.

My ex is still enjoying her new job, and seems to have finally met a nice guy who isn't apparently just after a one night thing. Fingers crossed, she deserves someone nice after the last couple.

Am I being trolled, or are you not including yourself in that sentence? I thought your problem was that you were too nice.

I confess I'm getting confused with the various women in your life. Can you post a diagram? I take it that Rock Chick wasn't happy that $girl didn't immediately drag you off to her lair?

Sorry, the "since she was stupid enough to let me slip through her fingers" was implied.

Women in my life == teh simple; none. I have various female friends, some of whom I may or may not have either been involved with or wanted to be involved with in the past, but there's no action at all at the moment.

I can only think that Rock Chick, who was having certain issues with her own love life last I heard, let vent certain frustrations that perhaps were best left contained at that time...

This is not a psychotic episode. It is a cleansing moment of clarity.
