Making things happen

One should never make challenges with one's friends when tipsy on 3 glasses of red wine drunk on an empty stomach.

As I got home last night in the above mentioned state my friend C rang me. She was in an equally cr@ppy mood so we spent an hour moaning about men and about the fact all we ever speak about is men to moan about them. We agreed nothing ever happens in our lives and that is where we had a brilliant (drunken) idea and set ourselves "the 24 hour challenge": before midnight the next day (ie tonight), something exciting needs to happen to both of us. And if the excitement does not happen of its own doing, we have to make it happen. In C's case, she is probably going to call Good Looking Guy, whom she met one night a few weeks ago and who has not given much news recently.

In my case, I am working on it:

9.02am.
From Evie to C
Omygod, something exciting happened. I have my thing-before-midnight.

9.16am
From C to Evie

9.36am

YES! But it was in my dream. Still counts though, right?

9.37am
From C to Evie

9.46am
From Evie to C
Pfffffft.

Evie, Just found your blog. It is making me laugh. Especially the FTC sleeping thing.

Glad to see you are enjoying HK so much. I look forward to more tales of urban deering do.

& No, it doesn't count if it's a dream.
