Anyways I've always enjoyed his company, I think he's a very sweet guy and we had a cool friendship and I'm not one to let something like that just go without a fight. So last week I messaged him on Facebook, though we are not friends, I could still send him messages. He responded within minutes and we started to communicate again. We decided to get together this coming weekend for lunch... and today is the day.
He arrived around 2ish and it wasn't awkward at all. It was like no time had passed. I gave him a hug hello and we immediately headed out. I was hungry so we headed to Chili's. We caught up on each other lives. Not a whole lot was happening for him. We ate and chatted for about 2 hours. Afterwards we headed back to my place to hang out. He didn't have any plans and though I could have done yard work I was happy to be hanging with my padawan again. He is doing a Buffy watch as well but was at the end of S3. I am doing a Buffy rewatch with my bestie Robert but we are in the early part of season 2. So I figured I can watch some Buffy with Troy since it will be months before Robert and I get to S3/S4. So that's what we did. We watched the last three episodes of S3 and the first four episodes of S4. We hung out until about 11pm when we finally said our goodbyes.
It was a good visit... you could tell he didn't want to talk about why he was mad at me. I would have like to know as I've never lost a friend like that. But I was happy to have him back in my life and to be honest it doesn't really matter.. all that matters is that we are friends again and I'm extremely happy about that. Looking forward to seeing where our friendship goes next.

Another busy day here at work, but I won't bore you with details. Two things happened and if your a Star Trek fan you'll be either excited or confused about on of them. Star Trek 2 (Abrams reboot) has gotten an official title Star Trek Into Darkness. This title is odd because there is no colon as in previous Star Trek titles; Star Trek: First Contact or Star Trek: Nemesis. So Star Trek fans are split some like the title and some hate the title. I'm not a big fan of the title but then again I understand that they are trying to get away from the "older" Trek universe as this is a new Trek. I do find the title interesting as in what the story will be. We still have nine months before it hits theaters and I'm sure will get more info as it get's closer.

Got to Teals and chatted with the two of them as dinner was running late. We were talking politics as Ali was watching the DNC (Democratic National Convention). I normally don't like to talk politics because it can be a touchy subject to some but Ali, Teal and I pretty much had the same thoughts on the race so it wasn't so bad.
We soon found out that the food place hadn't even sent out our order so we decided to start the podcast and see how far we could get before dinner arrived. We got about 30 minutes into the podcast when dinner finally arrived.We ate and then finished up the podcast with some Q&A.
It was a good "wrap up" podcast.. I should have it edited and out in the next few weeks. Not sure what will become of My Gimpy Life podcast but for now we are planning short monthly installments.. will see how that goes.
Got home around 11pm and crashed

Of course as I have mentioned in past blogs I have layers of friendships. My close/best friends I tend to talk to more often and see more often. Then the second tier and so on. But there are close friends that I don't talk to for months and when I do I find out all this stuff has gone on that I didn't know. I try and read up on folks Facebook and twitter but I only have enough time in the day for so much. I'm not a big talker on the phone but I do love to text so I try and keep in contact that way. But even with all that I feel like I don't talk to 2/3'ds of my friends on a regular bases and I don't like that.
So what is the solution? Stop making friends? Pick and choose which ones I keep up with? I don't know. I do know that in the past I'd say about 75% of the friendships I did have I would give 90% and they would return 10% in regards to keeping in touch, hanging out and such. But I will not be doing that anymore. If a friendship is worth having then both parties need to give 100% each to that friendship. I mean I know there are times when one or the other will be super busy but a friendship is made up of two people.
I love writing this blog as it really lets me write out my thoughts and when looking at them I ask myself am I just over thinking this.. a friendship shouldn't be work.. it should just happen and be enjoyed. I don't know.. I don't know if there really is a solution. All I can do is try my best at keeping up with those that are closest to me.

I loved Buffy when I first saw it and as the season progresses it just gets better and better. Robert seems to be liking it, which is cool. It's fun watching something that I love and being able to see it through someone else's eyes. It's going to take us 11 months to go through all seven seasons but it's going to be a fun ride.
Afterwards I crashed at Robert's place since he lives so close to my job and it's saves me the stress of my hellish commute the next morning. But besides that I really enjoy just lie there in a dark room chatting about life. Robert and I have always been able to really talk about anything. So I love getting some uninterrupted one on one time.
Prefect ending to a perfect Bro-Date.
My Age 22 picture was taken while in San Fransisco for the first time. I went with my good friend Lisa. We spent a week up there and it was a ton of fun. And yes those are my round sunglasses.
For my Age 23 picture it's a picture of me at my job (Mervyn's). I was with that company for about eight years before I graduated from collage and moved to Hollywood to pursue my career in the Entertainment industry.

After work I headed over to North Hollywood to have dinner with my bestie Will. Will and I haven't really talked or seen each other in over six weeks. That's crazy long for us not to hang out. Neither of us really had a reason. It's not like we didn't want to hang out but our schedules never meshed. We had a lot to catch up on and we had some awesome talks about some hairy janky planks (inside joke).
We had dinner at Chevy's which again it had been a while since I had been there. Good food, great company and a fun evening was had. Hopefully another six weeks won't pass by without us hanging out.

After getting home from Josh's, I picked up some El Pollo Loco for lunch and went home and caught up on some TV. For the first time in a month I don't have any pressing podcasts that have to be edited or released the next day. And since I didn't have really anything to do I actually went to bed at 8:30pm. I don't think I've gone to bed that early in years but I was just so tired and I deserve to get some rest from time to time. I'm not getting a three day weekend but I did have a nice, kind of relaxing weekend.
So this morning we woke up and just laid there in bed chatting, laughing, napping and just enjoying the morning together. It was so nice to not do anything and just hang with my best friend. Planned to leave around 10 but stayed until around 11:30am before heading home.
Since Josh lives so far away from me we don't get to see each other as often as we would like. He is also in collage, works part time and preforms in plays from time to time so his free time is very limited. So when we do hang out we try to make them epic visits... and this one was defiantly an epic visit.
