friday night.

on friday night i had a date (don't get your panties in a twist ladies--it was a friend date) with my classmate and one time prom-companion, ben.

we hadn't seen each other in a year. a year, an impossible amount of time!!

but i tell you it felt like mere weeks. i laughed so hard and was coaxed into drinking far more than my usual amount.

8 hours

ben

the nice thing about going out with ben is you know that what begins as dinner will inevitably turn into an eight hour tour of some of nyc's best haunts.

and that for those eight hours life will be nothing short of really wonderful.

ben is so freaking cute. i absolutely fell in love with him on outsourced - well with his dorky character.

nothing is fair about how cute he is. NOTHING.

but i'm glad you had fun...and got coaxed into drinking more than usual :)

gotta love friends that talk you into drinking maybe a little bit too much :) he's a cutie. you're lucky to even have just a friend date with a guy like him.

I love your blog so much! I can write this under each and every post of yours.
I remember what it was like in NYC, after college (rather already MA, but still in arts) - you write about me, about my feelings. It was so hard and so wonderful at the same time. Sometimes I think - I wish I knew ahead of time that 10 years later everything will be absolutely as wonderful - with a husband who's your best friend, babies and just continuation of life. And that I wouldn't spend so much time crying and drinking wine and being heart-broken. But then - I would probably not feel things as deeply. It's for a reason that we don't know ahead of time and just building our life and our character. Again, absolutely in love with your blog!

I'm looking at your blog and thinking, why does this kid look so familiar? It was driving me nuts, and then I did the smart thing and clicked on the link for your previous post. Outsourced! Wahoo! I loved the movie and loved the show! (As did all of my Indian friends..) Sad it was canceled. =( Love that you guys are friends!

ben is ridiculously handsome.
you look ridiculously gorgeous as well, even after a few drinks.

@ wildchild: I think he's the lucky one. a guy should automatically feel lucky after a girl agrees to go on a date with him (even if it's just a friendly one).

You have the cutest friends! And I think you look great!

Friends like Ben are the best. My friend J from highschool and I are like this... time stands still with us and we can pick right up where we left off.


P.S. I loved him in Outsourced!

I think you both look awesome, obviously. AND, um, where are you? Because the place you're at looks awesome too.

amanda jane said...

I think you look adorable. glad you had a fun night.

viktorija said...

ahhh! I was wondering why your friend Ben looked so familiar. Totally just watched him last night on a few old episodes of Outsourced. :D Did he happen to tell you whether there will be a season II? Super show.

viktorija said...

Dang it. Noticed from someone else who posted that Outsourced was canceled. Now I'm bummed and hubs will be too. You, btw, look very cute in the top pic!

vintch said...

it's those kind of friends, the kind you can go years without seeing and still spend eight hours of comfort with, that last. and look at the way he's looking at you, meg! that's more than just the effect of the drink:)

Taylor said...

You have the BEST friends! I'm jealous. Nah, I have some pretty great friends too. But my closest friends all live so far away and so it goes yearly visits. Sometimes visits are better because you have each others undivided attention. It's a special occasion. Everyone loves those.

nancy said...

you still look classy after booze-hounding?! I end up with drunk eyes and frizzy hair, and always end up molesting the camera with my facial expression when I've had too much. what about THAT seems fair?

:) glad you had fun though!

you look gorgeous! i almost never drink, but when i do and i have wine, 1/2 a glass and my face is bright red. oy. not a good look. and then everyone thinks i'm a lush ;)

Mackenzie said...

yeah, i'd say that is about 7 different varieties of unfair! he is sort of a babe and a half.

Ash said...

Oh my goodness, I must've missed the posts about him previously, but it was such a thrill to see his mug after watching Outsourced! So funny that you're good friends. He is adorable, and so are you. MARRIAGE! Ok, just joking. Glad to see you had fun.

Ben is adorable! Are you sure you guys have to just be friends and prior prom dates?
