I need a buddy

Ever since I moved to the area, there's been a ton of things that I've wanted to do and see. Concerts, bars, ball games, even amusement parks (for God's sake there are at least three water parks in the state, YAY!) all seem like a lot of fun. The problem is, I got no one to do these things with.

This is not a dating thing, this is a dude thing. I have no bros here (outside of the CTBA, but I'll get to that). All these cool things are not things one can really do alone. When I went to the Mets/Phillies game in May, I actually brought along my best friend from college who happened to live in Queens.

In high school I had my circle of friends. We played Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons. But whenever the summer rolled around, we had our fun together. We were a group. Any given weekend, we were either in K's pool, or E's house for an overnight D&D campaign (God we were nerds).

In college, it was the same. I developed a rapport with my freshman year floor mates. Pete, Asa, Jared, my roommate Mike, Lane, everyone. As college progressed, I got close with Pete's friends and roommates, as well as Crazy and Clapper (see "Making out with a Lesbian" further down). Any given weekend, we were partying, eating pizza, hitting bars, or watching sports and Family Guy, occasionally also studying.

After college, it all ended. Most of my friends from high school moved away and got married. My college friends weren't from my area in the first place, and I had no means to move anywhere. The best friend I had is now my sister's fiance, so anything with him now had to involve my sister.

Now that I'm in CT, I have two groups of friends. I have my coworkers, but we really don't hang out outside of work, mostly because no two people have the same schedule, so it's damn near impossible to have common off time to hang out. The other is the CT Bloggers. We basically get together for the Meet & Greets, but beyond that and Blog & Drinks, we never hang out that much. Not that we can't, we just don't that often. I kind of like what we do, and I wouldn't change it. It's fun to hang out once a month or so, drink, laugh, and do drunken karaoke. BTW, Kalie, we need to hook up, get drunk, and write some songs already.

I don't have a "Best Bud" yet. I don't have a dude who will let me be his wingman just to go trolling for ass at a bar. I don't have a dude to hang out at the mall with. I don't have a bro who I can just call and say, "Yo, let's go to Six Flags and throw up on the retarded kids in line." There is no T.S. to my Brodie, no Dante to my Randal (shut up, I am SO Randal), no Jay to my Silent Bob (30 total).

I value every friend that I have, but I need a pure bro. You know?

Yeah, NSA, you get 30 points. In the future, please answer in e-mail, so that others can have a crack at it. If memory serves, you now have 40 points total.

I'll settle for blog and drink. Basically, as long as I'm not drinking alone, I'm happy.
