hostess

i'm hosting a tiny dinner party tomorrow night for a few people i am friendly with at work. (including one of my oldest friends who also happens to work there.) they seem fun and nice, and i really think we could be friends, so i hope it goes well. i'm feeling nervous. :( i feel shy about interacting with people i don't know very well, especially with the added pressure of hosting and feeling responsible for the success of the evening.

also i have to clean my whole apartment. i really hate cleaning. but that's also the secret benefit of having people over every now and then (especially people i don't know very well): it forces me to clean everything and make it look presentable. my pride outweighs my laziness.

    Lemme get this straight. You're having a bunch of friends over. You're having a bunch of friends over to have a nice time.

    Yet, you're nervous. You're nervous about the "success" of the evening.

    You're the young lady who can't eat alone in a restaurant, aren't you?

    aw! i love having little parties. although mine are usually the pre-funks before going out in the mission.

    are you ever coming back to SF? i see a million ilona hipsters all over my hood, but none quite as cool AND smart.

    aw, thanks, stace! :)

    i might come back someday. it depends on a variety of factors, like my job situation, my s.o.'s job situation, etc. i'm really falling in love with new york, but the bay area is awesome too, so that factor is a toss-up.

    I wish I could do some Tony Robbins shock therapy on you. You bum me out with your insecurities about how people may not like you. Everyone loves you dude. Remember all your Boalt friends? And look at how many stalkers you have reading this blog.

    the BF that writes the best line ever:

    Everytime you see her with another guy, just think to yourself, "I wonder if her mouth still tastes like my cock."

    i was cracking up for days.
