Advice to men everywhere [Sep. 6th, 2008|08:51 pm]
When you break my heart via poorly worded email, don't expect me to be overjoyed to bump into you on the street. And for fuck's sake, don't EVER tell me to "smile".
The hi-five was a nice touch though.

Accountability [Jan. 23rd, 2008|08:03 pm]
Probably the thing that makes me most uncomfortable. Especially when it comes to relationships. Which generally make me feel uncomfortable anyway.

Part of my plan to "Keep It Great In '08" definitely involves reevaluating how I behave in relationships. Generally... not so great, actually. I mean, not so great in terms of "functional" and "healthy". Hell, even admitting that I am involved with someone is a big deal. (Usually because I'm involved with someone that, for any number of reasons, I probably shouldn't be.)

I recently reconnected with a friendly ghost from my past. Now, if I didn't have a history with this guy and know enough about him to be able to say with complete certainty that he is a man of true character, he'd definitely be flying some red flags. Except that he's a stickler for accountability.

The thing about him that has always struck me is how honest and straightforward he is. About everything. Even when it's uncomfortable. And especially when it's necessary. He doesn't let me get away with being shady or less than forthright. Especially about my intentions. He forces my hand and what's more, he makes me want to be the best version of myself.

And there is no person on earth I would rather be uncomfortable with.

The amends. They have been made. [Jan. 2nd, 2008|11:52 pm]
And it all turned out better than I could have imagined.

I'm starting the Ought Eight with a brand new optimism.
And a new partner in crime.

Netiquette [Jan. 4th, 2007|11:18 am]
So it came to pass that I was speaking with a friend about nothing and everything all at once and the subject of cybersex came up. Obviously.

The question became, is it all right to LIE in such sitations for the sake of continuity and plot advancement? I mean, we ALL have times when we aren't really wearing black lacey underpants (I can't make my self say "panties". Yech. It's a horrible word. Underpants can be sexy, right?) and we don't really want a faceful of... well, you get the idea, and yet the person we are IM-ing with really wants us to be wearing sexy underpants and begging for a mouthful of cock.

Is this a harmless white lie or is it like The Mother of All Sins: faking an orgasm?

Love is... [Oct. 2nd, 2006|11:23 pm]
According to an aging hooker, it's getting kissed outside a sketchy bar. (In which case, I've been in love lots of times.)

As real as it gets [Apr. 7th, 2006|10:05 am]
Last night I watched "The Prize Winner of Defiance, OH", a film about a mom who supports her family of 10 kids by winning jingle writing contests c. 1950.

A very sweet film.

The first thing I thought of was, "Wow. I bet my mom would have really liked this movie."
My second thought was, "I wish we could watch this movie together."

Then I fell into the sharpest, most rib kicking pit of sadness and cried for the rest of the movie.

Circles [Feb. 16th, 2006|09:29 am]
You're spinning me around in circles...again.
Ebb and flow, ebb and flow.
Is there a truer or more cliched analogy for this?
I really hate when cliches are true.

I also hate establishing myself as this sort of perfect-type person and then, at some point, having to reveal the truth that I am just human.

Human with an angry robot. How does that work exactly?
(hint: not very well)

Although, lately, the robot has been leaving me alone. Maybe it is as tired as me.

Or just resting up for the next battle.

Birds [Dec. 15th, 2005|04:44 pm]
Open letter to my villain,

When you aren't around, I think too much.
Waiting at a stoplight today, I watched a flock of birds flying in some kind of weird formation, but going nowhere. It was like a natural screen saver and it made me smile. The smile reminded me of how I used to be so happy for no reason at all. What made me happier, was that I am feeling the stirrings of that happiness once again.

Sometimes, you are like those birds and make me smile for no other reason than that you are there.
