4 Day Weekend!!
Well, it's Wednesday, and technically Wednesday is better than Friday in this case because I have a 4 day weekend to look forward to.
Tonight, my friend David is celebrating 11 years clean, so I'm buying a cake and taking it to the meeting. Cake is always a good thing in my book.
Tomorrow I'm going to a girl in the program's house for Thanksgiving. Here's the funny thing, I used to think she was a bit snobby and I wasn't fond of her. This is where my insecurities come in. I didn't like her because she didn't go out of her way to be my friend. But, when I shared that I had never been clean for Thanksgiving and that I'd be alone for the holiday, she came right up to me, invited me over to her house and made me feel really welcome. I'm totally looking forward to it now and I'm even bringing a centerpiece for the table.
I always do this. I make these rash judgements against people, I decide I don't like them for any number of stupid reasons (they are prettier than me, they are too skinny, they are too fat, they don't smile enough, they smile too much, they drive a nicer car than me, they have a better job than me, they have a cute boyfriend and I am alone, they didn't use as many drugs as me so they aren't as much of an addict as me, they have more friends than me, they are wearing an outfit I don't like, they are carrying a purse that is too expensive etc.) - I think you get the point, and THEN, it turns out that they save my ass and we end up becoming friends.
This is why I have learned through the years to keep my negative comments to myself when it comes to my petty little resentments, because more often than not, I end up being wrong about people. The people I think are my friends usually fuck me over and the people I think are assholes, turn out to be the most loyal friends.
So, have a nice thanksgiving - I'll be blogging this weekend so check back - I'll be playing some freerolls, and hoping to get some money in the UB and Bodog accounts - head over to my Chasing Chris Ferguson blog to follow my progress and eat lots of turkey tomorrow - I will be!!!!
