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.
“18.104.22.168.1…” 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.
