a short moment in my life.
2004-07-03 21:37:21 ET

This morning I was woken by my boyfriend reminding me I had an interview. I squirmed under the blankets further to retreat from the harsh light and the prospect of moving from my warm and comfortable bed.
“Ten seconds.” He warns me “And I start biting.”
“I bite back.” I replied from my hiding spot.
“…” He counted down as he wrestled the blanket from my hands. The next few seconds erupted in a veritable explosion of blankets and laughter. He actually bit me! I bit him back and he threw me off the bed. He is proud of the fact that he is more effective than my alarm clock at getting me out of bed.

In other news: Last night’s trip to Riverside was an enjoyable one. I happily met Rivet Angel, KageKun, Analog Sky and Autumn Solstice and the six of us (I brought along the Biting alarm clock) talked and laughed until almost two in the morning. I thought I would be nervous the whole time like I usually am in places where I don’t know the people, but I wasn’t at all. We shared stories and art and they pretended to like my banana bread. It was as I said, enjoyable. I look forward to other moments of gathering.

very nice to finally meet you :)

It was a great wonderful time. I enjoyed talking to you and your banana bread was absolutely wonderful, so pash! Arne may be taking a trip to San Diego in a week or two. Perhaps I could come visit your home, hmmm?
Oh, I bite, too!

Please come visit me!

Yay! I'll let you know exactly when. I'll be having him drop me off unless we need transportation.

2004-07-05 14:34:22 ET

I have a car. so no worries

2004-07-05 14:36:05 ET

Neat! That works out just fine seeing as I would have to meet Arne's parents if I were to drop HIM off instead of vice versa. I'm just not ready yet. ;)

The parent thing is kinda scary at times. I was scared silly before I met dave's, them being missionaries and everything, I am sure that I just don't fill the perfect "for our son" list but his parents seem to like me. and my parents have gone out of their way to make it known that they really like him. You never know. Just being yourself and them seeing how much Arne loves you makes a world of difference.

I hope so. I'm usually never nervous to meet parents. I must really like this one. ;)

2004-07-05 14:41:36 ET

Yeah. cause this time it matters what they think... I hear ya

2004-07-05 14:46:12 ET
