Wow, almost a full two weeks without an entry.
Since the rejection e-mail there hasn’t been a lot of interesting stuff to happen. There’s been interesting stuff, mind you, but a lot of it falls under one specific category that I’ll tell you about in a minute.
First the mundane stuff.
My CD collection is still being sifted through, but now that I got rid of my old ISP, I can start gathering together the songs that I want off a bunch of the CD’s and thin it out a lot more. I still need a bookcase though – just need to figure out where to put it.
Work is work, as most people would guess. There’s isn’t a lot to report there, really – I’ve gotten some stuff done, I’ve been given more stuff to do. I’m taking of next Thursday and Friday so I can go home.
Kidding. I’m the best man.
There’s no such thing as too many books.
That’s the mundane stuff. Now on to the good stuff.
For me, this is a big deal. I don’t make friends often. Some sort of terminal shyness that I’ve slowly been getting rid of over the last couple of years. Case in point – she approached me first. It’s been a little more than a month now, and while we haven’t been talking on a daily basis, we’ve talked a lot. It’s wild – we talk for hours at a time and I don’t even notice. Time just seems to suspend and all the world is just she and I. She’s smart, and funny, and exuberant. Yes, exuberant. When I sit and talk with her I always - always - come away feeling pretty damn good. Hell, thinking about her makes me smile. This is kinda new to me – I haven’t had anyone that I enjoy talking to this much in quite a long time. She’s got this effect on me – she makes me happier with myself, more comfortable, more confident, more willing o go and do and chance and try – and for those of you that don’t know me, trust me on this; this is something I need. It’s like – and pardon me my strange analogies – a disease. She infects me with joy and enthusiasm.
And I love every minute of it.
So is she destined to become my next great tragedy? No. Right now we’re friends – better friends than the amount of time we’ve been talking would suggest. If anything develops from there, so be it. For now, friends is good.
Scratch that – for now being her friend is bloody perfect.
So, yeah. I’ve got a new friend.
That’s all for now, folks. Since I won’t be doing much over the next couple of days, I’ll try and make updates a little more frequently. And I’ve got a weird little bit of prose I’ll post in a few too. I keep looking at it and thinking “post-apocalyptic romance.” I don’t know why – there isn’t enough there to call it that. But still, the idea is there.
Of course, I think the world needs a series of Lovecraft style horror-romance novels, but that’s just me.
