Locked in the Bathroom

I've had a teriffic last couple of days!

 

I have this friend/coworker, Josh (completely different guy than the I Really Think Her Fiance' is Gay Josh), who plays the guitar and sings. Well anyway he'd gotten a "gig" (gosh, it's fun actually using that word in a story) to play at this club (straight club ;) ), so anyway me and another friend/coworker, Patrick (who is gay) decided to go watch/listen etc. So anyway I was going to give Patrick a ride but he lives on the other side of these railroad tracks. Anyway while we were at his apartment the stupid (and VERY slow) train decided to pass. So we were actually late getting there. But we still caught most of his piece and then the 3 of us and Josh's girlfriend, Sandra hung out for awhile. So anyway then I took Patrick home. Well he's got like the coolest "community" feel to his apartment complex. They have this nifty little courtyard and stuff so several of his neighbours were just hanging out. Anyway we got to talking and they were all really fun, cool people. So I ended up spending the evening with them. Well over the course of the night I naturally decided to go to the bathroom. So I went in locked the door, conducted my business (yes that's right business can even be done in a bathroom! :boy: ), and tried to leave. Turns out the lock like broke while I was in there :blink: . So I ended up having to pound on the door until they heard. Of course they couldn't get the darn thing to open either. So in the end Patrick, or maybe his neighbour Erin (obviously I can't be sure since I was trapped on the otherside of the door), had to unscrew the whole doorknob.

 

It was kind of funny but I felt like such a dope! I mean here I am a guest in someone's home and I ruin their door :thumbdown: . So anyway I kept apologizing to Patrick, who felt awful that it happened at all and kept apologizing to me, Erin kept saying how surprised she was that I stayed so calm (why I'd freak out I can't imagine. I mean I had all the fresh water I could need, toilet facilities, and if I had to I coulda curled up in the tub for a nap :boy: so I was set), and his other two neighbours/friends just thought it was funny and got a kick out of it.

 

It was a very fun evening though. Patrick was determined to get me drunk :lol: . I think he may have had ulterior movites actually :o . He hits on me a pretty good bit. The other day at work I was rather embarassed when I said casually in front of everyone, "I'm so hot" (it was a really warm day and the AC didn't seem to be making much of a dent in it), and he kinda giggled and looked at me and just said, "yes you are" :o . But at least it was something positive. I mean it would have sucked if instead, he said in a sarcastic voice "Really? I couldn't tell" or something like that. Anyway he finally succeeded in his efforts to get me inebriated (not that I hold my liquor particularly well, quite the opposite actually. I just wasn't drinking much), but I was still the soberest person so no worries :P . Oh and I played a really fun game of chess with Erin. The fun part was that the pieces looked very similar (either frosted glass or clear glass), and the lighting wasn't that great, so we kept mixing up each other's pieces. I lost one of my knights because I thought I had a bishop right there defending it, but it turned out to be her bishop. Then later I kept wanting to jump one of my own pieces, I swear I tried to do it at the beginning of my turn like 3 times in a row! LOL, and she just kept trying to move MY pieces! In the end I won though :)

 

So anyway then yesterday evening I went out to eat with Josh and Sandra. Boy! It seemed as though we weren't fated to eat or something. We'd planned on going to this really cool sushi place that they'd been to before. It's on the top of this big museum and like all the walls are glass so it's got a really awesome view. Plus the food is supposed to be good. So I was like, "did you guys make reservations", but they said, "no, last time we walked right in and they sat us in no time"....this time was different :( . The place was packed and it would have been a 2 and half to 3 hour wait! So we decided to try this new sports bar that just opened. There's another restuarant of the same name that's a fixture near campus and they had just opened the new location, where supposedly the food was better. I think it was too, but unfortunately even there we had to wait an hour to get seated! Oddly enough though while we were waiting and chatting with the fellow patrons someone guessed where I was from based solely on the way I was speaking!! I was really shocked as I've always been told I don't sound like a local. Apparently it was the way I pronounced the "a" in "ya'll" :P . :thumbdown: I actually wasn't very pleased, though I was impressed. But I'm not going to worry about it, I only ever even say "ya'll" when I'm around other southerners, and I'm betting I was even using more of an accent than I normally would have.

 

Anyway the food was really good! Then we went back to their apartment and watched some comedy acts on TV (I never watch tv so the whole "tv experience" was slightly unfamilar and exciting :P:boy: ) AND to top it all off they gave me an entire cheesecake sampler! Long story short they found themselves with two which they'd gotten for free, and they only wanted one. So guess who's got cheesecake! :2thumbs:

 

Hehehe so this morning I actually had a piece for breakfast 0:) . Tonight I'm planning a nice quiet evening. Hopefully I'm going to get some moving stuff taken care of (I want to box up all my old books, movies, cds, and dvds, and maybe other random junk). And I'm definitely going to fix myself some leeks (my favourite right now!) for dinner. I also heard rumours that several of my favourite stories had been updated! So super yay!

 

Have an awesome day everyone!

Hi Kevin

 

I am glad you had fun :D and I love leeks. I love cheesecake with strawberry topping give me a slice of that and I will love ya forever lol j/k. I would of freaked out bad if I got locked in the bathroom, I am claustrophobic :nuke: . I will be fine the first couple of minutes but just knowing I can not get out, forget it. Good luck with your packing. I hate packing :angry:

 

 

have a great day

Locked in the bathroom is not a good experience, I think. However, you were positive to face it. Well done, Kevin.

 

Have a good day, then. *Hugs*

I tend to be claustrophobic too, so it would not be a good thing for me to get locked in the bathroom (or anywhere, for that matter.) Although having cheesecake in there with me might distract me ... 0:)

 

IMO "y'all" is the greatest contribution of the U.S. South to the world (well, that and grits.) I still say it all of the time, even though I don't live in the South anymore.

 

How do you prepare the leeks?

It's odd, I've always been like the opposite of claustrophobic. Small or cramped spaces actually make me feel safer as long as I'm not physically uncomfortable. Similarly I love heights.

 

Bridges freak me out though. I don't think it's the height or the water, it's the railing. So actually overpasses, places where they have cones in the road, or any barrier will get me really freaked out. In general I very mildly suffer from driving anxiety, it's not usually enough to make me pull over, or keep me from going places, but the whole time I'm driving I'm tense and uncomfortable, and if I've been driving for a long time I get a headache and a little shakey. Spiders and snakes also freak me out. Oh and dentisits! :unsure:Definitely dentists, hospitals and doctors in general are fine, but dentists :o ....cheesegraters used to make me really uncomfortable too, but I've made quite a bit of progress with that :2thumbs:

I agree, Kitty! It is an excellent phrase! LOL and grits! What else can I say :D

 

How do you prepare the leeks?

I usually just boil them then add salt and butter. Sometimes I saut

Good luck on those!!! :music: And good luck with the packing!!! 0:) I can't say too much, I haven't started packing yet either...but then again I don't have to move for another month yet! :P:devil: hehe

 

Well graduation is May 19th, but I'm moving on May 15th. I don't have to attend the actual ceremony ;)

I sure wish I could come over and help you get ready to move, Kevin.

Awww thanks Kitty! :hug:

 

LOL that makes two of us :) But on the bright side I finally got started. Filled up 3 boxes last night and today I made most of the necessary calls (utility installation, truck rental, change of address notifications etc. ) :2thumbs:
