I am off work today: I love Mondays! I probably am one of the very few people in the world who like Mondays, but it can't be different because it means day off! My worst day is no doubts Tuesday, because then I am working morning AND afternoon...

Saturday was the busiest day ever, I was busy with the Youth Centre staff morning, afternoon AND evening... I had lots of fun that must be said, there were my friends, we took LOTS of pictures and we had a blast all night long. I would have liked to go home earlier still, because 2 am is very late in the night, especially when you'd woken up at 6am in the morning and you can't sleep late the following day... We had a fancy party at the Youth Centre on Saturday night and it took hours to get everything organized, but it was worth the huge amount of job, because the party was great and we had fun. I wore a dress, yes I  said a dress! Of course it wasn't mine, but I had borrowed mom's dress, I looked girly I think. It was my first time wearing a skirt since I was a teen at middle school and my first time wearing a dress in ages (I think mom dresses me really girly when I was like 4y.o. but I can't remember wearing a dress, so I must have been a kid the last time I did). Of course it felt awkward, but eventually I made it through the whole night with that thing on and it even made me wonder (for a while, don't worry I am back to my usual not-so-girly self again) if I needed to get more girly with wearing dresses, skirts and make up... LOL* I can't but posting a photo on here, because it is such a memory: me with a dress, I mean... ME! 
Of course my legs are HUGE and FAT and I don't look nice in a dress, but...I wanted to share this. [no need to tell you that I am the last one on the right, the one with the black dress)

I was upset yesterday night. Some of you already know that I have been a member of a penpal forum for some time now. I have made some good friends on there and I have always felt home there and liked it pretty much. I have been busy lately and missed some threads on there. I didn't imagine that so much had been going on, but yesterday I got an invitation to join another forum of penpals that I did. When there I couldn't but notice that it was so much alike the one I usually browse through. I didn't like it, it was an obvious copy of the other forum and I don't really like copycat people! (yes, Nad, of course I don't like you! LOL) I noticed that the moderator of this forum was a (former) member of the other forum. A newby on the other forum, actually. I went back to MY forum (I like to call it my forum, because it is where I belong) and asked one of the admins what was going on and I got an explanation of the whole matter: allegedly some members have been arguing (over some misunderstandments I think) and some people left the forum and created another one (they must have done with some more creativity because they simply copied the threads titles from the other forum and this is unfair of them!) were they would meet. Some other people were banned from the old forum because of that. I asked the new (copied) forum moderator to please delete me from there because I didn't feel like going on with it, but she wouldn't delete my account... Aw! It's silly to argue like that and I don't like people backstabbing others... And I don't want to be on that new forum anymore... I felt so disappointed yesterday and I wanted to leave both forums, but then I thougth I had nothing to do with the whole matter and I could still stay in the old forum and enjoy it as much as I've always had! Blah to people who mess with others' lives!

I am TERRIBLY behind with letters: I owe 6 to Nad, Magalie, Julia, Krissie, Outi and Leanne... Awful of me, I know! I will try and have at least one written today that I am off.

Books-wise I am reading Rhett Butler's People at the moment, that I pretty much like, because I can see things from Rhett's point of view for a chance and I like it! The New Yorkers was as disappointing as I had foreseen, I went through it one night I was in, looking forward to being finished with it. I have already sent it to the States, to a fellow mooch-er.

I won't go to the theatre on Wednesday because I have a compulsory meeting at the Sports Centre...Boohooo! At first I was feeling so gloomy and angry, but now I have given it up and am ok with missing "Grease". Ricky asked his parents if they like to go instead of us, so we may get our money back. It'd be just too much to stand had we lost our money.

Tonight I am going to Ricky's fellow worker's home for dinner. Of course I wasn't happy going because I just can't stand those girls (too cheecky and snoobish to my likings...but then I am a real bitch!) but Ricky wanted me to go and I would have felt too guilty had I not attended the dinner...Hope it won't be too awful a night! Hopefully it won't last long, because tomorrow we'll be working and we can't have a late night... Think of me tonight!

That's what my Facebook comment was about - the dress! Of course, I could have been honest for a change and told you that you actually look great in it!!! Stop saying that your legs look fat, they don't at all!! You ought to get more skirts and dresses!! Come to think of it, your birthday is coming up... that gives me an idea!:)

The forum drama reminds me of the Tenerife fora here, haha. It is silly and I think you should just continue using the old one and not get involved in the drama. However, I feel very uncomfortable on fora where people start getting banned (unless it was a certain trouble maker who constantly upset people) because it shows me that there is no sense of democracy there. Hope things will settle down soon:)

Love u!

you looked very pretty in that dress! and you're not the only "non-girly" one here. i haven't worn a dress since my highschool prom and i don't own a single skirt. yes, i wear make-up and i'm girly when it comes to other things but i try to stay away from dresses/skirts ;)

would you mind giving me the link to your penpal forum? i'm on the lookout for some new penfriends since some of my current ones stopped writing.

Thank you!!! I must gain some confidence first and then I would be able to wear skirts and dresses whenever I like...

As for penpals, the link to the penpal forum is http://penpals-united.co.uk/ but I would also suggest a penpal site that is the best at the moment http://www.interpals.net I am on there too and I am Martj82 on there if you like to check on my profile!!! :-) Have you been writing letters for many years?

i started writing letters in 6th grade (i think). my school offered a penpal programm and i found a penfriend from brazil, who i wrote to for over 5 years. but unfortunately we stopped writing when i went to new zealand and she started studying.
i went looking for new penpals last year here on lj. i found a few great friends but unfortunately i started a lot of correspondences that ended after one or two letters :( so, i want to be a little more selective in the future.

thanks for the links! i'll check them out.
