Italy... I wish!


We didn't drive to Italy. We both have jobs remember? I would love to spend the rest of the year traipsing through Europe, spending all my money and having wild adventures but I had to get back to work to sign the company Christmas Cards, rearrange my desk and set up meetings for the new year. Bollocks!


Stoner got back from Amsterdam yesterday especially for the Christmas Party. Bad news. There isn't one this year. (Unless you call the Accounts department meeting for a drinks at the local bar a party. I'd rather go home and watch Eastenders...) All the fun people are away this year. Gay Boss is still in South America, Bimbo is still off work and Scruffy Artist is still too moody to talk to people. He's still refusing to unlock his office door, claiming that he needs to concentrate.


The last time Scruffy Artist locked himself in his office his girlfriend cheated and left him for the bass guitarist of "Eat My Nuts"; the rock band that play at the local pub on the first Friday of every month. I've seen them play once and they sound awful! If there was ever a reason to commit suicide... I'll probably try speak to Scruffy Artist later and find out whats eating him up.


I like to help people with their problems. I think this stems from my urge to know about everyone's lives. Whenever I meet a new person I'm curious to find out as much as I can about them. I like piecing together the little bits of information I have and building a picture.


Scruffy Artist is difficult to evaluate. He's very quiet most of the time and he's reluctant to share his personal problems with anyone. I found out about his girlfriend and the bass guitarist by doing a little digging around. I spoke to a few people. Spied on the band for a bit.... Well I had to find out what was wrong with him didn't I? It was driving me crazy!


Now that Stoner's back I think the two of us have some intense detective work to keep us occupied until the end of the day. Maybe Scruffy Artist is in love with someone... I would love to play match maker for a while.

I used to have this problem, constantly trying to help people out, but it was a trap in the end. Certain needy people don't want help, they want attention and they are addicted to it. Help them once, and they keep coming back for more, and I ended up enabling them more than I was helping them....now I just close my door so I can concentrate......

Because of your undying inquisitive nature, I get to read your incredible story.

It is probably a bit lonely to be away from your work people. Then you shall enjoy Italy! I know they charge a lot of money for each city entry. But with your knight, the trip shall be to be remembered in the years to come ...

I've finally gotten around to catching up on all your posts. I'm not going to comment on all of them though.

Simply Curious said...

Be careful playing matchmaker.

It's so funny that when I read your blog, with the background and sultry way of typing you have, I can almost hear a voice narrating your posts.
