Yesterday I was over at a friends house. He's my platonic friend of 7 years. I wouldn't imagine it any other way. (and before anyone gets uppity, he has a girlfriend) It was a little strange and kinda hilarious because it was for a religious holiday. I didn't do all the rounds of the prayers that were said (although I knew them, I feel that religion is too immoral for me to do anything but the polite necessary) but I did stand for courtesy. His family invited a priest over to bless the food, not that it needed blessing; the father made this amazing gourmet selection of appetizers, mushroom soup, and a russian version of crepes with sweet jams, salmon roe, and sour cream. He also made rather spicy alcoholic drinks called perchitsa; he made one with red pepper and another with lemon. I had four shots of those and a glass of red wine. It's definitely not bar heavy material and it was rather unpleasant for the nose, but I drank it to relax. I ended up having to help serve the mushroom soup and had to give the first bowl to the priest, which I did. In my mind it was just an act of giving someone food for kindness rather than an act of respect. My friend and I went upstairs and we talked about what we've got going on after playing some left 4 dead. he's a really touchy feely guy and he ended up wrestling me seeing if i'd politely ask for him to let go. I don't take that sort of crap so I kept trying to get away until we both became dead tired. I slept in his sister's room. Anyway, being the irresponsible person that he is, he acted like he forgot that he said he'd drive me back to where I live because he wanted to stay in bed until it was time for him to go to work. His poor mom had to drive me back. I'm not particularly bothered by any of the things before the whole episode about who'll drive me home, thing's are so ridiculously platonic that he's like a brother. I did catch my mind wandering though to, that's right, PJ. I think if I were to wrestle with the right person, it would be pretty hot. He seemed like someone that would enjoy that too. I wonder if he's not dying of boredom with his girlfriend yet. He told me that she wasn't all that complex and he couldn't see it lasting for an extremely long time. He's the kind of guy that would give it a fair shot though. I don't know, something felt really wrong about beginning a serious relationship with someone after ending one with someone that I don't click with much at all. I think I've reached the stage where, if PJ were to recognize my actions as morally right, I'd welcome that as a pleasant occurrence rather than the gigantic sigh of relief that I originally thought I would have. I'm rather ok with the idea that I shouldn't expect him to return. I'm still looking for him in crowds, but I don't get disappointed if I don't see him. I should perhaps provide a better look at AM in my next post.
