[Thursday 19th June 2008]
Yesterday night I get a mail, I thought it was about the RPG session that I missed due to the trip to Greece, but instead he told me that on that night, he let all the people present know that he´s going to GET MARRIED!!!
Simone got upset once for a post that I wrote about the way he views the work environment and his position in the society, although I understand what crossed him, I still believe in those things! But still, he´s one of the best friends that I have, the kind of friend that you don´t see too much but the kind of friend with whom I have shared a lot of experiences, and that it´s always great to talk to, as he´s never "banal" or "pre-cooked" like other people are.
But let´s go back to the announcement:
First of all I am utterly upset because I was not there and he should have waited to tell everyone, but probably I am being selfish...(though I am already thinking how he can make up for it... maybe a dinner in a very expensive restaurant...)
Second of all I am totally happy for him and his girlfriend (now future wife), they really make a great couple and it´s really a great piece of news!
Thirdly, that leaves only me and Stefano as singles.
I have been thinking a lot about marrying and setting up a family, it is something that in the past I used to hate even dreaming about, but recently the position has changed. If only the work situation was more stable, I have spoken to Chiara several times about the idea of buying a house, starting to settle down, but in our situation it´s really hard to get a loan, especially when you are not sure if you are going to have a job in two months time... I hope that things will settle soon so that maybe moving forward will be a bit easier, in the meantime:
(We are already organizing a PROPER stag-do) :D
Great news for your friend, Lox! And of course, your "mellowing" nature offers us oldies hope you may succumb to the delights of married life - soon!! :D :D

ALWAYS LIKE THIS ...WHEN YOU MEET SOMEONE IS NEVER THE RIGHT TIME TO SETTING UP A FAMILY. MAY BE IT IS BETTER TO LOOK TO STUPID RELATIONSSHIP AND NOT LOVE OF YR LIFE -

Hei Mr.President! Though I have the distinct feeling that I know you (Leila?), the fact is that the more you look for something the less are the chances that you will strike lucky and get it. That's my experience in relationships at least. On the other side there is a time for everything and maybe "before" wasn't the right time to settle down. Realizing this earlier than later (after you committed to something serious) is better, for yourself and for the other half...

He could have dropped an email to me... probably I didn't deserve it

Ciao Matte! I thought that he sent you a message, so he said... Maybe he has some wrong address? I will tell him!
How are you by the way?!
