Today wasn't really horrible. I went to the ALANON meeting and that was okay. I was still fidgety and nervous, but I think I managed pretty well. I have finally cleaned up my apartment and I'm in the process of organizing my movies and C.D.s - (which, if you don't know me, I own A LOT). Unfortunately, I'm missing three of my favorite C.D.s. I have absolutely no idea where they are.
I just got off the phone with (my Alex) and who is essentially Abby's Alex (but I am going to refer to him as "The Other"). Whenever Abby was home for the weekend, he seemed overly excited about participating in activities outside Abby's protected realm. But since he lives in Chambersburg (about 10ish minutes away) he decided he'd come to Shippensburg if his friend "Old School" (why do people give such stupid nicknames?) wanted to drink and since he didn't want to, I'm assuming he didn't feel comfortable just hanging out with me (because Alex was at work and had his phone turned off, so I didn't know what he was doing tonight).
I think The Other is pretty cool. He's just as lonely as I am, but I know he's afraid of me because Abby likes to badmouth me. She instills fear into her friends and boyfriends but what's funny is that when they break up, (and I usually don't get along with them) they actually CALL ME to talk to me about what a ragged edge Abby is.
Ironically the most hated boyfriend, Mike, has become one of my good friends. Mike and I were so alike that we had an extreme distaste for each other. Either you're so similar to someone that you get along swimmingly, or you hate each other. Mike and I were the latter. Our friendship was based off of their breakup and the fact that her then boyfriend, Dan, was trapped, and if he managed to escape the evil grip of Abby, it would end badly ... and it did.
I don't know why I'm talking about this, it's completely off key. Anyway, I'm supposed to hang out with Alex and The Other. When I called The Other and told him Alex wanted to go to the bar, he said he was bored and wanted something to do, but earlier when his friend canceled on him, he said he was going to stay in - even though he knew I wasn't doing anything either. Whatever. It doesn't affect me.
