It's been a Mary Chapin Carpenter kind of weekend so far. By that I mean a rather mellow, sepia-tinted world. No, I don't really know what I'm saying, but it sounds cool.

Anyway. I've had the flat to myself for most of the past day or so - it just worked out like that, which is fine. Last night, I had a couple of hours between when everybody else went out clubbing and when the Labrynith/drinking games commenced upstairs. Turning Labrynith into a drinking game made for very amusing results - it's fun being the only mostly-sober person amongst a group of drunks. After the movie, we played kings, yet another drinking game - I managed to make one glass last me about two rounds, which impressed me if nobody else.

After everybody was sufficiently soused to tell the truth, we did a form of never have I ever. (This, you see, is all the childish alcohol-related stuff I missed in high school...) I managed to destroy a few people's perceptions of me, which amused me to no end. I specifically remember after having lost a point on some question involving interesting intercourse (don't remember exactly which one it was off-hand) hearing Peter cry "Stephanie?! You?! I thought you were a virgin! I was sure...I mean, I assumed...really?!?" So I have some sort of reputation, it seems - which got torn to shreds with that game. Eh, they probably don't remember much of it anyway.

For the moment I'm just enjoying being on my own. I didn't realize exactly how much I need privacy until it was completely stripped away from me. About the only time I get completely alone anymore is my walk to school and when I'm in the bathroom. That's one of the big things I miss about home right now. Of course, there's also all the people at home I miss, too - both ends of that spectrum. Next week marks the halfway point in my stay in London. Already.

Good grief.

I UNDERSTAND NOW!
I understand how you feel about the whole Clarissa situation! This girl Crystal makes me so uneasy. All of a sudden she's always around me and when I'm talking to someone she'll interrupt and say something like "Yeah!" or "OH I know!" when she wasn't even part of the conversation. She always asks to see my tests and asks me to proofread her essays. She was walking behind me and I started walking faster and she walked faster to keep up too! It drives me crazy because its like she tries way too hard to be my best friend out of nowhere. And then she asked my friend Melissa (who I'm planning on rooming with next year) if her roommate falls through, if she could room with us in a 3-person dorm! I feel so bad because she isn't a bitch and she's nice, but I can't stand how much she clings! And I feel like I can't talk to anyone about it because they'll just think *I'm* the bitch. "How can you not like that girl? She's so nice and quiet!" But she clings! Ah!!! I hate it. Well, maybe thats not how you feel about Clarissa, but I assumed it was. So if I'm wrong, I'm sorry! :)

Re: I UNDERSTAND NOW!
Looks like you've hit the nail on the head - that's exactly the problem. That she's so bloody clingy, and whatnot. I'm sorry you're dealing with it now, but just remember - at least Crystal doesn't sleep five feet away from you.

At least somebody understands. Thank you.
