Wild Card / Re: Return of the Son of Today I'm Gonna...
« on: January 31, 2018, 06:20:20 pm »
Was really sick yesterday and it was pretty miserable. But woke up this morning to text from three different NYC friends AND my mom asking how I'm doing today. I feel very ... appreciated. My coworker offered to bring me food! Spending today reading and drinking gatorade and eating leftover indian food... hopefully back to work tomorrow.

Last night I had such bad chills that I was wearing long underwear, a thermal undershirt, lined "ultra warm" sweat#####, wool socks, a sweatshirt, and was under my covers plus an extra blanket. But then at 3am I woke up hot and bothered, and realized that I was comfortable without all of the extra stuff. I cooked the bugs out, I guess.

Hm, if only I were a little closer to your coast! Enjoy the concert, one day I'll be out there and we can see something.

This week I bought knitting needles and a ball of yarn. Having something to do with my hands while I'm watching TV or talking to my roommates is nice. Tonight I finally finished some rows without any hideous errors (that I can see, anyway). Learning stuff is cool.

Things are getting nuts at work, I finally have projects to work on where nobody is holding my hand. A little overwhelming but I feel good about things, mostly.

(Also, things with the gf are so good.)

Oh man. This was almost as bad as the "everyone thinks you are gay" convo a few years ago. The GF told me that on our first date she was convinced I really disliked her because of my distractibility and sometimes bad eye-contact habits. I wonder how many other people I have made feel bad with this? Damn. My sister brought this up recently because she realized she does it too-- she gets distracted easily and so when she's trying to keep track of a conversation she sometimes like, stares fixedly at the wall.

Otherwise, though, things are going very well on this front. I introduced her to someone as "my girlfriend" and she smiled. My sometimes very rude college roommate was charming and polite to her. We watched a lot of Great British Bake Off and walked around in the -10 degree windchill a bit and agreed that our next tv adventure will be this gay love figure skating anime.

Man. The more I date somewhat normal people the more I realize how toxic my college relationship was. Open communication is so nice and a much better way to deal with both being a little anxious.

Happy new year my friends. Things are feeling good over here except for the awful cold and the whole world going down the tubes.

Something i left out about the GF: she briefly lived on the small island where Somebody Nice lived in the frozen north. Is that possible!?

And yes, my roommate is very pleased with herself.

Christmas was very good. I used all my vacation days when I went to Chile, so I was only home for the weekend and today and flew back tonight. Now I'm in my bed in Brooklyn. Delicious food, sleeping on a mattress on the floor in the living room just like I've done since I was a kid (aunt and uncle in my childhood bed), lots of late night Mario Kart. Good holiday.

She is a tall midwestern A-CAP journalism grad student. She’s doing a dual thing in finance and journalism. She has a job and school and is very busy. But very sweet and the kind of intense intimidating smart that gets me going. On our first date we went on an architectural tour and since then we have mostly eaten/cooked. Things are good.

so, seems like I have a girlfriend, even though I do things like explain that tweet joke to her.

(I try to get her to explain things to me at length but she is not interested, maybe I can keep working on this)

OK so:

There was a funny tweet once where a woman said “suckin dick while my man playing 2k.” 2k is nba2k a basketball video game. Hours later she clarified “LMAO y’all thought i meant my mans dick? FOH!” (Fuck out of here). There was also a funny tweet of a guy “dramatically reading” the tweet out loud, and he pronounced “FOH” like “Foh” and not “eff oh ache.”

And then yesterday people made things where they replaced the subtitles on Simpsons screenshots from iconic scenes with riffs on the tweet. It made me laugh very hard.

Yeesh. Now that I'm finally kind of dating someone, I run into the cute bagel shop girl at a bar and she thinks I am really funny. She approached me and leaned on me heavily (like the weird full body lean you do when you are trying to put the moves on someone) and insisted on giving me her number. come on, universe.

I think I'm saving a shocking amount of money every month by getting trinidadian food when I don't feel like cooking. $4 for a meal with enough leftovers for lunch. What a nice neighborhood.
