Happy Halloween, Flowery Love, Love Pangs

Hey there,

Halloween is here! We plan to go simple and minimal this time, though the fun promises to be unplugged! Balanced with this fun is a rather sad break-up that was inevitable. It’s all there this time. Join in…

Happy Halloween! [Oct 31]

The party season is slowly rolling in! First among the big ones is Halloween. This Halloween promises to be a great and simple one. Donna and Irina are the ones planning the Halloween for us. I have got some inside scoops on the party themes that they are working on, thanks to Irina’s yapping tongue! Irina blabbered to us at the bar on our night out that things will be more on candles this time around. “We really fought to get this sorted, ya know,” Irina winked at me and Adrian.

Then Irina went on to say that Donna had planned to have a simple and eerie effect with candles and all. “We’re going totally white!” Irina informed us. She and Donna are scourging their cupboards and store rooms for old books and magazines. Plus, any crap that they can get hold off. Adrian suggested that they put cobwebs to get that feel. Irina half-turned and shot, “Thanks, genius!” Adrian was about to hit back. I changed the topic. With the sparks flying already, Halloween can just turn up some real skeletons! Watch this space next week to know what happened!

Flowers Speak For You [Nov]

The importance of flowers in the aspect of dating has always been confusing for guys. I have friends who bought expensive gifts only to realize later that they would have done much better on the brownie points if they had chosen flowers. The worst idea that you can have if you are looking to go out on a date is to think that an expensive gift guarantees your credibility as a lover. The flower power baffles dudes like Adrian. He asked Cathy what it is about flowers that girls swoon over. The answer was simple, only that it was tailor-made for Adrian!

Cathy told him that there was a lot of subtlety in the language of flowers. “You don’t get it because you hardly know the difference between purple and violet!” she laughed at him. Adrian was also told that the fragrance of flowers and what it does to the female mind is something that is beyond his comprehension! Adrian didn’t like the fact that he was being underestimated. He complained to me. I asked him, “Okay, so you know the difference between purple and violet?” He noted the satire in my voice. Last seen, he was at my computer running a search to update himself on flowers and colors! The effort will do him good. At least Cathy will be more pleased.

Love Pangs

After much deliberation, Steve decided to part ways with Natalie. It was a tough decision, but he had to take a call sometime. “I couldn’t have allowed my relationship to be dictated by a stranger,” he told us later. That was exactly that was going on. All the good times that they tried to spend ended in bitter quarrels on who was right and whose fault was that things were this way. Natalie tried her best to work things out. Steve was not willing to compromise on this anymore and he chose to walk out while his dignity was still in place.

The break-up left him shattered for days. He’s still trying to pick up the pieces. I heard him a couple of times muttering to himself as he bent over on a mutilated computer. I think he’s trying to let go of the hurt and the feeling that Natalie was not willing to accommodate things the way he would have wanted her to. He doesn’t say that he blames her, but deep down he is definitely disappointed that things fell apart. This relationship meant a lot to him. But things are not what we want them to be, are they?

Staying Connected Without Bitterness

While Steve licks his wounds in private, there’s another couple who dominated my newsletters once, but have long since broken up. It’s almost a year now since Kate and Jeffrey have broken up. Kate is in a steady relationship with Alex, while Jeff continues to be single. But he’s worked on himself wonderfully. They met at a mall recently. It was not planned, of course. They were out of touch for some time now. After the meeting, the dynamics have changed a little. They exchanged numbers and are now on talking terms.

Irina, who’s the closest to Kate among us, told us that they were on amicable terms now. Jeff was okay with the idea of Kate moving on and having someone in her life. To take it a step forward, Irina went on to say that she had this feeling that Jeff was rather happy that Kate was having a nice, cozy relationship. I don’t know if Alex knows about this new development, though. It would be nice to know his reactions. Guys don’t like it when their ex flame makes a return, do they? I’m intrigued!

Here’s a little weird quote from George Carlin on the Halloween night: “There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.” Intriguing, to say the least.

  1. I smiled when I read that Rick bought a beer for a tramp. I once bought a sandwich and a beer for a homeless man plus gave him a belt that belonged to my son as his pants were too big. Some people said I was an enabler for buying him a beer. He thought I was an angel…

  3. B. I smiled with Yvonne in regards to Rick giving a beer to a homeless man. Because he gave with his heart. That gave a little pleasure to the man and I’m certain it gave back much more to Rick. That is what it’s all about. By the way, how did the Veteran’s Day celebration go with Fred? I hope you all had a grand time. So kind a thing to do. At the school where I teach, we have a model who is a Vietnam vet. He’s really nice. My students really warm to him. He has stories to tell of his time on the road. His face weathered and thoughtful, is wonderful to draw and paint.
    The class gets inspired.
    sending hugs to you and your friends, L.
