Okay, I’ll start with GG. In my more lucid moments today, when not in a drug-induced daze – and I’m talking about cold remedies here – I’ve been giving matters some thought. Firstly, she invited me to join her in Florence for the weekend as a guest at a friend’s wedding. Well, it’s just outside Genoa, but we were going to visit Florence while we were there. I’ve decided, though, that I’m not going to go… mainly, I think, because I just want a bit of space between us for the next week or so. Maybe I’m mad, but Florence is only a cheap Easyjet fare away, and it’s not going anywhere.
Secondly, I was thinking about something Surviving Online Dating said to me about just being comfortable around each other, and I’m going to tell her that I want sex to take a back seat for a week or two. The thing is, I do like her company, and we have lots of things in common (sense of humour, music, a kind of spiritual thing going on, penchant for the odd spliff, etc etc) and it would be a shame to just walk away from it. So, we’ll see how it goes. We haven’t spoken for a day or two, and I’ll email her in a minute and suggest that we speak tomorrow. Feel free to tell me if you think I'm being a complete moron...
Thanks, incidentally, for all your positive thoughts/words of advice about the presentation today, and this horrible bout of man-flu. I think we did okay… no real cock-ups by any of the team, which was bordering on remarkable, and I must admit I even managed to crack one or two quite outstanding jokes which brought a few chuckles from the assembled audience. We’ll know in a couple of weeks if we’ve progressed to the next stage, so keep your fingers crossed for me, please! Aside from that, I feel like complete and utter cr*p and will be lucky if I sleep for more than an hour or two tonight as I can’t breathe at all.
Oh, before I go seek out more, and stronger, cold remedies (actually, I'm going to try tequila now as the more conventional approach hasn't proved to be very successful) I was asked what was going on with regard to the PAG situation. Well, I'm both happy and relieved to report that the calls have stopped. Completely. Sometimes doing nothing can be the right thing to do. It’s just a case of knowing when, I suppose.
