A day in the life of...

The young have something no one else has or ever will have. Time.

It's true. We are smart, beautiful and...alcoholic.

"I know it may look like I was being like a bitch, but that's only because I was acting like a bitch."

Summer is finally here! The past few days have been spent lazing on the beach, drinking vitamin water and eating shapes and getting tanned and swimming and checking out all the cute boys. How can you not love summer? Pity the rain has returned today. Well, we do have to turn up at work sometime right?

A has been talking non-stop about Hottie so eventually J got irritated and told her it might be prudent to just ask him out and stop all her committment-phobic nonsence. The guy is hot, funny and a great kisser so what exactly was A's problem? A finally decided to take a chance and follow J's advice. She figured she'd ask him out in a playful way that fitted their relationship/friendship but as she was planning another workmate informed her that Hottie was actually engaged and his fiance was in town at the moment. Yes, engaged. Not had a girlfriend but a freakin' finace. Apparently she is a ballet dancer and lives in Sydney, which could potentially be why no one had seen her before. A couldn't believe it. She would have felt betrayed enough to find out Hottie was engaged when they were just friends. How could he not have told her over the months of shifts they've worked together and all the other personal things they'd discussed. She though she knew him, and all this time he'd been keeping this secret. A was furious. Especially now that they'd made out and she was starting to fall for him. How could he do this to her? And you thought A was a man-hater before...She's definitely thrown sex out the window now, and seems pissed off at every straight male that crosses her path.

Luckily, she can team up with K who seems to have given up on men as well. Afyer breaking up with her the boyfriend who cruely told her he could never love her, K decided they should try and remain friends. This was very noble of K, who usually tries to cut her boyfriends off completely by deleting their number and never speaking of or to them again. She did it to end-of-the-train-line (who deserved it), she did it to E (who didn't really deserve it). So for K to try and have a friendship with an ex, it was pretty mature of her. However he continued the same jerkiness he displayed when they broke up by being a pretty shitty friend. He constantly stood her up and on one occasion told her that even though they were no longer together he expected her to have sex with him occasionally. When K refused he told her he never wanted to see her again, Asshole. So, like A, K is going through an all-men-are-wankers phase. They've both decided to become non-sexuals and go out drinking with the intention of screaming obscenities at randoms and abusing bad bands rather than hooking up. It's odd to see the pair bonding. They've never had a great friendship, possibly because neither will back down from an argument and they can both be psycho and bitchy. But the main thing is they're having a good time.

J's relationship with Bossman is upping the ante once again. After the Christmas party the sexual tension is right back in play. Bossman's 'friend-with-benefits' is out of the country, and he'll sleep with anything that moves. On a night out last week J jokingly burnt him with a cigarette which turned the ever-kinky Bossman on and he suggested she do it again. He now has two blistering burns on his arm and one...somewhere else. It's dangerous territory and those two should not be messing around. The big bosses already think they're involved, and it was only some quick talking from Ronald McDonald that appears to have saved him. Despite his not-so-great looks Ronald McDonald has turned out to be a pretty cool guy. He was a bit shy at first but now him and J are getting along well, although she'd conscious not to talk to him about Bossman. That could get awkward.

Speaking of awkward, B has been acting rather oddly lately. K suspects she is secretly meeting up with one-night-stand but hasn't told anyone because they are afraid they'll judge her. Considering J's attitude towards sex, how can B really believe that? The only thing they'll judge is the stupidity of B's belief that her one night stand may result in a relationship. Well, at least she's over R.
