So on Tuesday at the 2-year anniversary, the following things happen.
I meet Scott after work and we go to the gym, where we do arms and abs and talk to Stephen who's also there and we comment on random gym guys, like the gym guy who has a great nose (but nothing else), the gym guy who's straight but has a fantastic spray tan (to the point where I'm about to go up to him and ask him where he had it done, but I don't think it's worth being punched over) and the gym guy that Stephen really likes but doesn't like Stephen back, well he didn't say hi to him after they chatted on gaydar anyway so it's either that or he's really shy.
Then Scott orders some steroids from Stephen, I also order something from Stephen, generally everyone places an order with Stephen, then I remember that I need Valium because I'm running low, so I ask Scott to get me some from Frederik when he sees him the next day to get his fat burning pills, then we all shower, don't find anything worth stealing in the changing room and leave.
After the gym Scott and I go to my house where he gives me my presents (a DVD boxset of British sitcom Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister, a reindeer themed candle holder, a flashlight, a card that calls me by my middle name which I prefer to my first name) and I give him his presents (a Scotland rugby top from the World Cup, a card that calls him a cunt).
Then we get on his bike and go to this restaurant in Knightsbridge where we have pizza, followed by some chocolate/banana cake and then we get back on the bike and on the way home we drive through Hyde Park and past the Serpentine and I'm thinking how cold it is and if I wanted to kill myself I would certainly not jump in there, because surely there must be better ways to take your own life than freeze to death in a dark, cold lake in a central London park. Maybe something involving pills.
When we go home we watch an episode of the Simpsons and in that episode Bart and Lisa are in the old people’s home and they’re playing an edited version of Gone With The Wind for the people there with all the bad bits taken out (the war, the swearing, the “frankly my dear I don’t give a damn” line) and Lisa tells Bart that “the elderly aren’t like you and me, they thrive on consistency, predictability and a life with no surprises”. And I try to remember the point when I turned 70, but maybe I was just born this way.
Then Scott leaves and I watch the first episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch (i.e. my favourite TV show ever) but I have to stop myself there and not watch the rest of season 1, because that’s the only boxset that’s released in the UK at the moment and I have to pace myself to delay running out. Of course season 2 is already out in the US currently and it can also be found on my Amazon wishlist here on the right – I just thought I’d mention this in passing.
On Thursday I’m texting Donnell to ask him how his medical exam went earlier in the week and the text conversation goes like this:
Me: Hi, how did your exam go? Did you identify all the diseases?
Donnell: It wasn’t that bad I suppose. Was hard though. What are you up to this week?
Me: This week I’m mostly wanting to be muscly, have nice clothes and be good looking. That’s what I’m mostly up to. Don’t forget, if you’re free on Sunday we’ll meet up.
Donnell: Yeah see you Sunday. Can we go somewhere though, not just sit at yours.
Me: Yes that’s fine, I have a whole week off work after that so I won’t be stressed.
