So, I am well and truly back from the visit to the boyfriend (and Blizzcon, and all the stuff that went with that). To be honest, I had a somewhat fantastic time. Even if I did cause the BF to get in trouble with the police (accidentally, honest!), spent more than I could afford on daiquiris (although I could go for one right now – I am going to have to learn how to make them!) and didn’t get all the things done that I could have possibly have gotten done in a trip to LA.
I know holiday stories are really boring. They bring to mind the horrible, stereotypical visions of Auntie and Uncle making you suffer through endless photos and slides of their trip to the lake (nowadays people just send you the DVD – you put it in, don’t really watch it, and then can legitimately say “Yes, I looked at them! Gorgeous!’”). So, instead, I am going to tell my holiday tale in an exciting way… by adding cats with lazors! OK, so not really…
Most of my fears about meeting the BF were eliminated within a couple of hours. It really only took a couple of hours because he took over an hour to find me at the airport (long story!). You know how sometimes you get along with someone really well online, but when you meet it just doesn’t work out well? Thankfully, not like that at ALL. Which is great, because I can be somewhat irritating and full on in real life. Absolutely no problems at all
… except for his snoring. Eeeesh! Although, apparently I sleep talk like crazy (I just can’t shut my yap even when I am sleeping), so I guess I should be understanding.
Of course, things can’t always go to plan. There is always something or someone which is going to interfere. While I was over there I also spent a little bit of time with someone who, well… I am not sure what I would describe our relationship as, because I never fully understood it myself. Someone who I have spent an awful lot of time flirting with online (and that was more than reciprocated!), but I have never exactly understood whether there was anything there, or whether it was just harmless fun. Of course, since I couldn’t quite figure it out, I lumped it in the ‘harmless fun’ category.
Anyway, I had dinner with him and a couple of his friends one night, and then we all went back to their hotel room for drinks. Now, nothing happened (since, you know, I AM in a relationship), but it felt like the possibility was there for something small to happen. So, of course, I am now even more confused about all that than I was before, but I guess at the end of the day it doesn’t matter since I am in a relationship.
Not that it would hurt to KNOW exactly what his side of the whole thing was!
… I’m allowed to have a ‘crush’ on someone while I am in a relationship with someone else, right? I do love my BF, even if it may not sound like it.
Anyway, most of the trip the BF and I just kicked back and enjoyed each other’s company. Neither of us wanted to do too much – being busy all the time actually makes it harder to talk and what not. Instead, I drank my weight in daiquiris, we enjoyed plenty of conversation, learned one or two new things about one another, and just relaxed. Which is also what I really needed with the way work has been lately.
If only I wasn’t so confused about someone!
