In which June becomes an adult. hah!

Your gal, June, here,  just woke up. Am I 17? I was out till quite late with …friend, and let's discuss what a grownup I am. I mean other than the part where I got home after 2:00 and just woke up.

I won't go into details, but let's just say I had issues with friend. Issues. Basically he was being a boy and I was being a girl. And I was King Kamehameha being a girl. My POINT is, even though Hulk told me there was NO WAY I could go to …friend and calmly discuss what was going on, and he said he saw me as a cartoon character with tears flying off her face instead of a normal person,

Sadjune
I WANT YOU TO KNOW I DID NOT ACT THE FOOL. I really was calm. You know, for me. And we talked at length, and I think things are pretty okay with …friend and me now.

I know! Aren't you proud of me? I was kind of an adult and also I am not having to get on here today and be all, "…friend is no more." Which if I had to get on here and do that today I would have been a mess.

And I actually kind of have to credit Daniel Boone for that, just a little. You have no idea how many times in the four months I knew him he'd say, "Why don't you just TALK to the person?" "For God's sake, June, did you TALK to him?" until finally all on my own I hear myself thinking, Why don't you just TALK to him?

So I dredged a good habit out of that bad relationship. See? It wasn't all bad, that Daniel Boone thing. Okay, it was mostly bad. Still.

I must go now and get ready to see a movie with …friend. Ellipses. Dot dot dot. Oh, but before I go, I do want to talk to all of you, too. I have been thinking that I don't want to blog every day anymore. I've been doing this every day for five years and I am kind of burnt out. I was thinking I'd just come on here when there was something to, you know, say.

The reason I've hesitated to do so is because you all have created such a community in the comments, and I feel bad about not providing a new place for y'all to get together every day. But if you guys wanted to chat, you could just do so in whatever post is up, right? I mean, I'm being silly.

So that's all my news for today. I guess I have to get all cute now to go to the movie, so I'm getting in my WayBack Machine to 1990.

  1. When I read your post about “finding you again” (or however you termed it) I wondered if giving “JUNE” a break would help not-June start fresh. As everyone else has said in some way or another, this blog is not about us. We really want you, not-June, to be happy. You deserve it. No guilt allowed.
    So, Happy Monday Pie Peeps. It is the end of spring break here in our house. Sigh.

    Glad you talked to …friend! See, that wasn’t so bad!
    I thought about you yesterday. We flew into tiny MSB airport and I wondered if you used to live anywhere near there.

    No we didn’t live really “near” there; that airport is north of the city. But it’s not far…

  8. It is a miracle that you’ve been able to sustain daily blogging for as long as you have considering the amount of energy and emotion required to put your thoughts down as eloquently as you do. It will be a treat for us when we do find a blog and in the meantime, we can chat among ourselves. As a new pie peep, I’m still working my way through the archives, so it will not be like I’m not getting my daily slices of pie.

  13. Letha, I KNOW!! I can’t stand that Pete character. My daughter’s boyfriend was here last night and he used to work as a production assistant on Mad Men. Among other tasks, he had to deliver scripts to all the actors’ homes once a week. He said the guy who plays Pete is pretty much a jerk in real life, as well. Said the nicest ones were John Slattery, Chritina Hendricks and the big guy with glasses. John Hamm is apparently a bit of a nerd… socka with sandals, etc. But nice.

    I read every day but never comment. I’m not funny enough. Still, I love your blog but totally understand your need to lighten the load. Whenever you decide to post, I’ll definitely be here reading.
    Also? So glad to hear that John Slattery is a nice guy. I’ve adored him ever since he was in the show “Homefront.” Does anyone remember that from ABC about 20 years ago? It was about a small town right after WWII. Kyle Chandler from “Friday Night Lights” got his start on there too.

  18. Pkzcass, loved Homefront! Slattery was awesome, I think he played a Union organizer guy, I think the show was set in the 1940’s. I loved the storylines, the clothes, hairstyles and especially that 40’s music. I seriously feel I was born in the wrong decade. I should have been in my 20’s during the 1940’s and heavily involved in union organizing but then I probably would have died a violent early death or been encased in cement or something.

    Also, John Slattery did a short stint on SATC as a kinky politician that Carrie carried on with for a while. He was disarmingly charmingly gross in that role.

  26. Nobody has an opinion on that driver’s ed part of Mad Men? I just didn’t get that part. Unless Pete is just losing it… which wouldn’t surprise me, especially after how the show ended.
