Great 2008

It's already the middle of the month and I am just now writing. So far 2008 has been pretty dynamic - the weather has been insane, huge waves rolled through this past week, Mavericks was held on Saturday,and much drama has been going on.

I'm so glad the current and swell has calmed down. When I went surfing on Friday it was huge and I caught a couple of big ones. When I went for a walk on Saturday it was still pumpin' and slammin' up against rocks and other waves, thus getting this effect:



It was perfect Standup Paddle Surfing conditions this last couple days, but there's been a nasty bitter breeze that I don't feel like dealing with. At least it's been giving me a reason to get reacquainted with my bike.

Yesterday I went to lunch with a friend, to whom I was intimate with in the past and who I still currently work with. Her girlfriend called while we were driving to get lunch and flew off the handle when she found out it was me she was with. I'm not sure how, perhaps she was looking at (we'll call her Baby C -my friend that is) Baby C's phone while she was asleep, but she got my work cell # and called me and demanded to know if I enjoyed hanging out with some one else's girlfriends. Honestly, that some one else's gf is a good friend of mine, the answer would be "yes, hands down". Anyway, I didn't feel the need to instigate the situation further by feeding her anger with smartass remarks, so I handed the phone to Baby C and told her she can take care of her psycho gf. I was irritated beyond belief. When I got home I stacked a half cord of firewood by myself in half an hour... which is pretty good for one person. I think that was the healthiest way I could take care of my frustrations. I don't like being accused of something I didn't do, nor being condemned for something that was long past. I don't ever regret being with Baby C and am absolutely thankful for the friendship we have now.

Of course this morning, Baby C reluctantly told me we have to "take a break from each other", so that she and her gf can work on their relationship. Let me add, that I am the subject of many of their arguments because Baby C and I were once intimate and we are still friends and see each other on the weekly basis, only because we work together. I never call her outside of work hours and will txt msg her once in a great while to share a funny pic or whatever... point being, we are just friends. Back to the "taking a break" subject - basically we have to stop having fun together so we can accommodate her gf's insecurities. Basically we can hangout again once they've figured things out and when her gf can get a grip on her insecurity issues - For some reason, in a lot of people's minds, they can't seem to believe that two adult who once had been intimate can have a innocent friendship or just enjoy one another's company in a platonic friendship.

Baby C didn't want to give up our time, but felt she needed to to save her relationship with this person - and i will support her all the way. If she thinks that it will work out and she'll be happy, then I am behind her 100% - she's a big girl and can make her own decisions. I'm her friend, I will listen... put in my 2 cents... she can take it or leave it.

Anyway, I am the luckiest person in the world to have the greatest friends who are there for me, and love me. I'll take my frustrated energy and put into my surfing or vigorous exercise... put it toward some greater good in my life... and there is a lot of good in my life.

Until next post...
