    i have a pretty good track record of cutting people off.
    I'm that kind of person.
    Negotiating, i don't like it. I have a high tolerance for bullshit, but once i reach a point, it's over. For ever. I can hold life-long grudges. It's magic!!

    But anyway, i'm all in a tizzy about a few social situations. They've been filling a great deal of emotional time for me as of late. Keeping me up n' such. Submitted for your approval:

    case 1) Darren.
    We were very close in college, even though he only stayed in it for a year. After he left and moved away we still kept in touch, called each other often, and even managed to see each other 2 or 3 times a year, no matter how busy we were. We have such similar humour that we'd spend most of our time on the phone laughing till we cried and our stomachs hurt and we'd have to hang up just to regain our composure and get any work done. Then he got a girlfriend and his calls became less frequent. (STORY OF MY LIFE)
    But we still kept in touch, and i invited him to a gallery show i was in. He came and we had a nice time and he said he'd give me a call as soon as he got back into town after his vacation.
    That was May 2nd, 2002.
    Well over a year ago now.
    I didn't think anything was weird at first. A few weeks later i phoned him and left a message. Another one a week later. And another. I left a message almost once a week.... for 4 months. Then i started leaving a message twice a week, half for fun, half out of spite. Around January i gave up.

    This doesn't seem like an isolated incident. There was a group of 3 of us who used to hang out, me, him and Alex, and i still talk to Alex a lot. Darren has stopped talking to Alex as well, but way before he stopped phoning me back. In fact, Alex spotted Darren on the subway one day and it seemed to him like Darren was trying to avoid him, like he was scared (Alex gave him an angry look)
    Even though Darren is a strange and shy kinda guy, and Alex is super-gay and quite the bitch if he's upset, this is still a strange reaction to seeing someone you haven't talked to for a year on the subway. Dont'cha think?

    I miss Darren a lot, but the other half of me wants to leave one final message on his machine (which i still call from time to time, just to make sure he's still alive and i'm not fuming over a dead guy)
    Something CLASSIC.
    Something fucking hillarious with sharp knives on it.

    Alex blaims his girlfriend, thinks she's crazy and keeping him from us.
    Who knows. She is pretty bitchy. No one likes her.
    Maybe i should leave a worried message.
    Typing all this out, it seems a little creepy.
