i'm not as sad as the photo may imply.


well, today i entertained my first real guest at my house!

rita and i hung out tonight after a fruitless trip to sephora find my much coveted vichy moisturizer - apparently no one down here has ever heard of the line. i just love being patronized by gay sephora counterboys! "does your magical canadian skin creme not have a website?" oh, fuck off. i switched to a biotherm creme for sensitive skin, so we'll see how that goes. but i can not abide by the type of red blotchiness you can see on my cheek in my picture! no more!

anyways, back to rita - i love hanging out with her. we can talk and talk and talk. it's awesome. it's so nice to be able to transition so easily and effortlessly into a friendship with someone. i feel like we've been friends so much longer than we have been. it makes dealing with absentee friends and homesickness so much easier.

[this is not to say that i don't understand why some friends are absentee or that other friends down here aren't helpful with homesickness. blah blah blah. i love rita! bugger off!]

we had a good time dishing and eating macaroni and ice cream and looking at photos. yay to rita!

so yeah, i'm feeling pretty good - my life is so good right now! to finally have almost all of the pieces together is a beautiful thing. it makes me feel so secure and happy. for the first time in a long time, i feel like i have a real home.

i just wish other people in my life could get here. i don't mean married, i don't mean where i am, but just to this type of place where they feel like i do - sure, it's not 100% perfect, but the good outweighs the bad by a wide, wide margin.

now, 'scuse me, but i'm gonna crawl into my way-comfy new bed and attempt to make headway with the jackie o biography i started this summer - i'm just about at the part where jfk gets assassinated.

I feel the same way though and I'm glad you don't get confused by my ramblings like some people do.

rita! i say these things 'cause they're true. i really enjoy hanging out with you! and what's to get confused about in those ramblings? i may have the memory retension of a sponge, but i do okay. :)

dear anonymous,

thank you! however, please do sign your name to what you write or i can not publish your comments no matter how nice they are. new policy of mine because i have had too many people say mean and nasty things under the anonymous guise, so i had to moderate the comments now. i let this one slide because it was nice, but no more without names!

thanks again, though!
