In Juliet's word, Friday morning meant time to start getting ready for the weekend.

Today, though, Friday seemed to mean ... not much in particular. She texted back and forth with a few people from New York, but it just got depressing hearing about the fun she wasn't having. So she called Jeremy out of boredom, but even he didn't pick up.

Dispirited, she flopped back on her bed with a Tennessee Williams biography (and no angora sweater), leaving the door open in case anybody interesting wandered by.

Jeremy didn't show up before his class because he'd gotten her messages, because he hadn't. He had, however, come across a cream angora sweater that clearly wasn't his while rummaging through his stuff for a belt he seemed to have misplaced.

He stopped in the doorway, sweater in hand, and frowned at her.

"You're up? Why aren't you picking up your calls? I left like three messages."

"I don't know, because you didn't call?" Juliet said grumpily. "Why didn't you pick up? Unless you really were out doing something awesome."

She glanced to what was in his hand, smiling a bit. "Oh, hey, you found my sweater."

"It was in my stuff," he replied, about as grumpily, as he walked over to shove said clothing item at her. But gently. "Like I said in the messages I left you."

"You didn't leave me any messages," Juliet insisted, shoving her phone back at him. (Of course he knew her password -- she had another phone for anything not brother-safe.) "Look, you can check."

He might find one new message.

"Didn't you get my messages?"

Date: 2011-01-07 03:45 pm (UTC)
stars_and_money: (Uh okay then.)
From: [personal profile] stars_and_money
So Jeremy checked, and listened, and...

"Uh, that's not me." Such an astute observation. "But I called you like three or four times!"

"But I didn't --" Juliet bit her lips, aware they were just going in a circle. "Do you have your phone? Let me try calling me from it and we'll see if it works."

Date: 2011-01-07 04:00 pm (UTC)
stars_and_money: (See my side.)

Jeremy reached into his pocket for his phone, then handed it over, still frowning in a confused manner.

"You had a voicemail," he said. "So your phone probably isn't broken."

"Maybe they're working on the phone lines?" Juliet tried, as she punched in her own number.

At the beep, she put on her most actressy voice and left a message for herself. Juliet believed in the power of positive thoughts and words.

"Now," she announced, leaning forward on the bed, "we see if it worked that time...."

stars_and_money: (... Huh?)
From: [personal profile] stars_and_money
Jeremy took a seat on the edge of her bed, her phone to his ear as he went to check her voicemail again.

"Nope," came the verdict. "Still just the same guy. Says something about the lines going insane." Yeah, this time he actually had listened to what was said in the message, though it didn't make him all that much less confused. "And not voicemailing irresponsibly."

"Oh." Juliet reached for her phone so she should hear the message herself. "So ... we should just not call anybody? That's absurd. Why not just sew our mouths shut, too?"

Even she knew she was being overdramatic on that one.

stars_and_money: (Lazy time.)

"Well, we are in Maryland," he sighed as he flopped carelessly onto his back on her bed. "Maybe being social isn't the social norm here."

Wouldn't be the weirdest thing.

"There's supposed to be some group of people who get together to beat up on things," Juliet shared. "Maybe that's the big thing they do here, instead of calling or whatever."

She flopped next to him with a sigh.

"What, like a martial arts club?" Jeremy asked curiously, crossing his hands on his stomach. "Actually sounds kinda neat."

Luckily he'd forget about his interest in... Well, now, actually. "By the way, I couldn't find my cool belt today. You'd think you couldn't lose anything in these tiny rooms."

"I guess," Juliet said dubiously. "My big sister was all 'yeah, someday we'll save your ass with it.'" Silly Kennedy.

She rolled to prop herself on an elbow, shaking off the question of reserves. "Which one? I didn't unpack all of my accessories yet. it's like living in a shoebox."

stars_and_money: (One of those faces.)

"The Dolce&Gabbana one with the funky buckle?" That may not have narrowed it down much, really. "I'm not even sure I packed it anymore. I think I might have left it at home with the shoes that go well with it."

"I like that one!" Juliet protested (possibly not even thinking of the same one as Jeremy), and went over to the pile of boxes in her closet to retrieve the one of accessories. "Here, if it got mixed in it's probably somewhere under my scarves. You're missing the shoes too?"

"Well, yeah," he said as he rolled onto his side. "But I'm... maybe 80 per cent sure I decided to leave those at home, 'cause I remember talking to Brian about those and I'm pretty sure he said he liked them."

And their tastes didn't often meet, so.

"But I can't remember.

"Is he still allowed to wear cool shoes?" Juliet wondered as she started poking through the box, fussing with a crimson scarf that almost matched her slacks. "I thought priests had to be all boring."

stars_and_money: (Seriously?)
From: [personal profile] stars_and_money
Jeremy was going to help by watching. That was helpful, right?

"I don't know, but those shoes started looking a lot less cool after he said they did," he said. "But maybe there's a cool shoe thing that's still okay even for priests."

"Maybe it's okay if they're black," Juliet suggested, then -- belt forgotten for the second -- went to the mirror, tying the scarf around her head and trying to decide how it looked.

stars_and_money: (Say something good.)

"Makes you look a little like a washwoman," Jeremy informed her lazily, pushing himself up some so he could reach for the box and look inside. "Color suits you, though."
