The Other World

Gloomy Saturday.

This summer isn't starting well. Another month and a half left and this one weekend already is battering me down really badly. I suppose it's partly caused by the holiday; it's one of the many holidays that people spend with their friends having fun. Good for them but every time I look out of the window and see the silent streets, I am reminded about my own social life.. or lack thereof. No friends, no acquitances, no one. Alone.

I don't even get much out of books. I've watched Dexter's third season and Torchwood's first season today and yesterday, and now I don't have no company left of any kind. Even radio is playing just pre-recorded playlists.

I know, I'm whining. This was, however, the pressing thing in my mind at the moment and writing here makes me feel a tiny connection to others.

The layout if this place has changed since the last time I visited the site. I kind of like the news caption in the sidebar (bloody Russia...). The 'Most Recent Entries' column seems a bit odd at first since it can have several entries from one blogger instead of the latest before but I suppose I'll get used to it at some point. Nice to have a new look, though, from time to time. :)

Did something very unexpected and daring today. You know these people in larger towns who collect donors for Unicef or SPR or Pelastakaa lapset ry or WWF etc.? I was approached by one of them today. We talked, I signed up and then -without giving it much thought- I said: "This is really irrelevant but I have to say that you have beautiful eyes." And she did! Light turquose, a bit greenish ice. In my opinion it was kind of like saying something nice to someone but I have to admit it did have a little -not much even though she didn't wear an engagement or wedding ring- sexual undertones in it, just a little. I do know I'm not sexually attractive (except to certain type of straight men) and today most certainly not but.. somehow I had the courage to say what I thought and feel good about it and myself even though I know she wasn't into me. And guess what? It made me feel good. I bet the people passing me on the street probably thought I was a bit loony (they most certainly looked at me like that) but who cares?! I feel good!
