Have I written about Katie before? I don't think so. She's a lot of fun. She's one of the few people I know who keeps her hair as long as I do. Her husband is a hoot, a total Californian skater.
Melissa and later Deb came as well, and Katie made spaghetti. I'm not even a spaghetti fan, normally, but it was good and Katie's meatballs were AWESOME. But I think the best part was just hanging out with everybody. Usually when the gals get together, it's at a bar...and that's totally not my scene. I mean, I've met people at a bar and had a drink, but I don't like to get plastered and when these guys go out in a group, that's the goal. So I stay home. But that means I miss out on a lot, and sometimes that does bum me out.
But just hanging out was fun. It makes me wish I had a place of my own so that I could have people over to play board games and eat and all that stuff. But even when my house isn't in the middle of a kitchen remodel, it isn't a place I feel comfortable having people over because it's not my place, it's my parents.
I mean, people I knew in childhood and high school? They can come over. But it just feels awkward when people from my adulthood visit.
