How did the Ireland trip go?

 -k

It went OK, they won two out of three but she wasn't very impressed with the way they played. They had a great time though, did a lot of touring, visited a lot of pubs (a rugby thing). She didn't play because she is coming back from a broken fibula she got in a game with a visiting Kiwi team last spring. The leg had been cleared to play just before they left but her game fitness wasn't back up to speed. All she could do was train with the team. She is now doing full contact.


Moved into her dorm a week ago and just had her first classes yesterday. Big change for a farm kid and she is very excited.

Hope things work out for your missus.

Good luck to her.  Are you going to support her if she's unemployed ?  Or maybe pay for dinner ? 

I hope it doesn't come to that.  We both like having our own space. If she moved in with me, it's possible we might not coexist very well.  If we ever move in together, I hope it's not because of financial trouble.  And I can't afford to pay her rent. I could help out if she asked me, but she's very independent and I think she'd hate asking for help from me or anybody else.

Bad news on the rugby front. She had been told by her own doc she was good to go and had been working out with the team. She still had a lot of pain in her ankle so she went to see the UBC sports medics. They said there are three muscles in her ankle that aren't doing much and she shouldn't even even be running on it. So six more weeks of physio. The season just started and she is really missing playing.

At least there's EI.  Hopefully can hold her over until she finds a new job.

We had a few parties this weekend.

Friday - gay male couple friends and their lady friend came over.  We love all of them and I have worked with him in shows.  He's getting targeted by a very shrill person who is accusing him of harbouring a problematic comedian.  Long story but anyway.  Lady friend seems to have got a boyfriend, which is great news as she is very cute and adorable at 50ish years old.  Never known her to have a guy.

Saturday - birthday party for a friend, and turns out that he lives 3 blocks away.  Lots of old burners there and kids including people Easy likes.

Saturday night Joanie and I and my brother played a street festival.  First night with Easy and a sitter.  It went ok but Joanie dropped her best buigar and **** it.  Expensive night.

So we now think we will be able to go out on a real date.  Maybe a few weeks from now.

I want to see 'once upon a time in hollywood' :D

Also - I need to get my exercise game back.  And ... I want to get my podcasting project back on track.   Ugh.

Home from work today with a bad cold. :(

My special girl came over last night with a basket full of goodies to help me feel better.  Like, an actual basket.  She must have grabbed just about everything off the shelf in the cold and flu section of the pharmacy.  It was so sweet. I was blown away. 

I gave her flowers last week. She got all emotional, but tried to hide it. She was going to say something but she couldn't and then she turned around and took some stuff out of her cupboard for a minute and turned and hugged me so that I couldn't see the tears in her eyes and wouldn't let go of me until she'd composed herself.   I'm not usually a flower buying person,  but I knew it would mean a lot to her. She'd told me a story about how she and her ex used to fight all the time and then he'd promise to make it up to her and buy her flowers and be a better person, and never actually did buy her flowers (or be a better person either).   Even though flowers are impractical and expensive and a big waste of money, it was worth it to see that reaction from her.

Well, Joan loved it but I was unable to watch the climax because of the dog attack.

(I have PTSD from a dog attack.)

As such I didn't have a full movie experience.  Other than that it was pretty lush.

I've recovered enough that we were able to go to the burlesque show last night that we had tickets for. I'd never been to one before.  It was fun, but as two of my former girlfriends were strippers I felt that the artistry was a little less than the standard I'm used to. We bumped into some of my special girl's acquaintances who she isn't "out" to, and did the charade where we're just a couple of chicks out on the town. We have these encounters kind of worked out, where we don't actually have to communicate to know how much we're going to reveal when we meet people.

Feeling well enough to go back to work tomorrow. Terrified of what I'll find waiting for me.

The mountain of work waiting for me when I returned to work was daunting, but I prevailed. Still not over my illness, still feeling drained and tired.

My special girl still has a job.  She has been training with her new employer for the past week. Her place will not reopen for a few more weeks, so we are going on a vacation together!  I am excited, but nervous.  It will be the first time we've spent a whole week together non-stop, 24 hours a day. We may never want to speak again by the time we return.

Our first vacation together... after this, who knows. Living together? Shopping for sensible shoes together? Joining a softball team together? Buying our first Subaru together?  It's all quite bewildering.



"I hope this doesn't sound gay, but I think we should practice kissing together."
"That's a great idea! Once we get boyfriends, we'll be so much better at kissing!"

...

"I hope this doesn't sound gay, but I think we should live together."
"That's a great idea! We'll save so much money!"

...

"I hope this doesn't sound gay, but I think we should have sex."
"That's a great idea! Once we get boyfriends, we'll be so good at making love!"

...

"I hope this doesn't sound gay, but I think we should get married."
"That's a great idea! There are so many tax strategies for married couples!"

...

"I hope this doesn't sound gay, but I think we should start a family together."
"That's a great idea! I want to have a baby before I get any older! Do you think your brother would be our sperm donor?"

...

"I hope this doesn't sound gay, but I think we might be gay."
