It sure was nice not checking social media or the news for the better part of five days. Also having 80 degree weather.

I seriously want to stop every person who is staying at a $500-per-night Disney deluxe hotel and ask them "How are you doing this? Are you actually that wealthy? Is this the only vacation you take in the space of two years or so? Or do you do this instead of saving for retirement or your kids' college?"

We didn't stay at the $500-per-night hotel, we just went there to have dinner and gawk. We stayed at a Doubletree, which was free on Hilton points since I traveled so much for work this summer.

That sounds like my family!  And yeah, living in this rich, new-agey part of Southern California...how do some of these people get money for $15 smoothies on Wednesday afternoon?  Itís best not to think about it too much.

And how do people get the nerve to charge $15 for a smoothie?

Wait, the thread has changed subject and I forgot to ask Inev how he met the new girlfriend. I feel like there was an architectural tour mentioned several months ago, is this the same one?

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.

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!?

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.

Waiting for your review of the anime. I was kind of surprised how much it grabbed me when I finally got around to watching it, although there were a couple issues that I thought required some suspension of disbelief.

I'm trying to talk myself into it but a trip into OC on a Tuesday is rough. I'll have to choose quick, they're only selling 500 tickets to the show.
