Saw Oliver this weekend, it was nice to be with someone who isn’t sad. He’s a good guy (which is an odd experience for me) and isn’t complicated, unlike the rest of my life.
He called again tonight and after a very long conversation (my phone bill has probably jumped since meeting him) we made another date to have lunch on Wednesday. This means am going to have to wear more than my scruffy (un-ironed) work clothes, don’t want him to see me in dowdy office mode.
Katie still isn’t back at work. I really hope she doesn’t stay away too long, it feels wrong without her. Which is weird cause I worked here before she did and now it feels like I don’t belong without her (not gay.) Stanley is a bit off too (not that he wasn’t odd to begin with) he always has trouble in social settings but this seems to be a bit much for him, he doesn’t know how to balance his behaviour. Half the time he’s extremely morbid and then others he’s making inappropriate jokes. (It makes me want to hug him but I think he might objects to the physical contact.)
I think I’ll call Katie tomorrow if she doesn’t come in.
