Turning It On Again
Happy New Year all!
I like the simplicity of Shih's wee poem. It's just the normal noises in here, kinda thing. Even as the calendar rolls over and we can get a whole new bag o' goodies to play with heading forward, still do the days and nights resemble those gone by. So does the same air fill our lungs and the sights and sounds of people and places bring to our minds remembrances of yesteryears and people passed.
In my own life, it's been another couple o' weeks of my seeming the blog slacker. I've made some rounds, but even then not commented very much. Other than lots of work when at work, I've actually had a wonderful change brought upon my silly life.
Just as I was about to give up again on teh dating, this incredible grrl gave me her number as her own hopes for meeting anyone outstanding on that particular site were dwindling and she was about to let her account expire. TIMING!!! woohoo! lol!
Our first date, which I mentioned a few posts back, was really a wonderfully quick 4 or 5 hours where we'd each expected but an hour or two for lunch to see what wuzzup with the other person. Since that time, I've had to change phone plans because my normal 300 anytime mins was No Where near enough; not even carefully managed. :)
So now (though really last weekend in these two pics) we're fast becoming all but inseparable. I really am trying to go slow. (D'oh!) She is too, though it's been such an incredibly satisfying getting-to-know-each-other month, that we both think we'll have plenty of time to slow it down in the coming months. For right now . .
. . I'm simply enjoying the wonders of meeting a woman, who not only expresses herself in ways I find adorable in the extreme!, but genuinely seems to be exactly who she says she is! THAT is A Biggy for me, as I have little capacity to pretend to be anything other than what I am; no matter how many different and often at-odds things that really is.
So Happy New Year to all my friends on teh internets! Even though I've yet to respond to the latest batch of comments, I do still get So Excited whenever one of y'uns stops by with something witty or silly or weighty or just plain nice to say. Based upon personal progress made in '07, my hopes are high - though I'm still on that particular wagon eh - that the new year will
bring more of the same to help me on my road to pretending to be fully who I really want to be.
Na Zdrovje! Le Chaim! Slan Gevah! Peace!
