"Bring your ship about to watch a friend drown"

New Year's Eve has held a curse for most of us for as long as we can remember. There's so much pressure to have a good night and it always ends up being expensive and no where near as good as any other nigh out...anyway with H bailing on the Falls Festival it seems the curse has hit again. Maybe we'll just spend NYE in bed and pretend it doesn't exist. We wish L would come instead, but she seems a bit depressed lately. Actually that shouldn't really be a surprise since she's recently broken up with her boyfriend and all but lost her best friend. In addition, she seems to be blaming H's abrupt departure on herself. This could be due to A's extremely harsh and uneccessary comment, "You know, you weren't spending a lot of time with us when you were with secret admirer. H was pretty pissed off. Maybe that's why we'll never see her again." Way too far. And while it's true L wasn't spending as much time with her friends when she had a boyfriend, she never ditched us. Certainly not the way H has. But L seems to feel guilty for pushing her best friend away and not being there for her and now H has vanished. So now all L wants to do is stay at home. Well, she is studying for exams.

It's hard to believe H would throw away friendships as old and close as ours without so much as a goodbye. But it's harder to believe that she'll come crawling back...and we'll take her back. L would, L has a good soul and a forgiving nature. A and J are far more cynical and jaded and cold. K's never like H all that much and even B can't understand throwing your friends away for a guy. Sure she ditched us a few times for R but she was still there she didn't just disappear.

When you think about it, it's actually very very strange.
