Platonic Dating and More
Here is our goofy little light tree. I'll try and do better next year :-)
Another weekend done come and gone. First things first, so I will tell you how my Friday evening activity with the Activist went. It almost didn't! When I first got to where we were supposed to meet I didn't see him. I was a bit late...and he has no cell phone...so I kinda thought that might be that. However, he had gone back to his house, which was really nearby and called me. So we did finally meet up. I parked my car so we could walk about his neighborhood, which has lots of cool shops and restaurants. We checked out this store called Echo Park Time Travel Mart. It was really cool and all sales go to benefit students that are tutored and mentored by 826LA. Next we went to a casual Italian restaurant for dinner. It was called Masa and the food was pretty amazing. It was very relaxing and we had lots to talk about, although it was fairly noisy. After dinner we went to a bookstore that we'd noticed earlier. For like an hour, we just looked at books and sat together reading. Laugh if you will, but that was pretty much my idea of a perfect evening. No one ever wants to just sit companionably with me and read! It was getting late and I had to get home to pick up Girlie Girl from her friends house, so we called it a night. I felt really happy and just very comfortable. There isn't any kind of sexual vibe there, but we are totally compatible friends I think. And I also think that when you feel really comfortable with someone there are always possibilities yet to be explored. So who knows? But it was a nice night.
My next paragraph will be much shorter, I assure you. Saturday was shopping day. I basically finished up all of my holiday gift shopping. It hasn't been as crowded anywhere as I always fear it will be. Maybe a lot of people already finished and are sitting at home all smug and sassy. But now I am among the smug, sassy finished ones. Um, almost. Okay, yeah, almost...just a couple more things, I swear. Anyway, Saturday evening Handsome Lad came to hang with me while his dad did something or other, so that was nice. We had a fine evening watching Dogtown and Z Boys. Then came a pretty quiet Sunday. I went grocery shopping and did some laundry and pretty much called that my day.
Now it is almost the end of my work day on Monday. I work tomorrow, then only four hours on Wednesday, as the library closes early (too kind.) Then it is Christmas! WTG is hosting Xmas eve, which I was hoping wouldn't happen, but it did. Kick Back Dude and Princess Diva were slated to host, but somehow WTG took it over. Whatevs. And Girlie Girl and I are going over there Xmas morning too, so that everyone can be together to open their gifts. And then? All that's left is to clean up the mess and move on into another year :-)
Hope you all had a good weekend and that you all feel ready for the festivities ahead. Peace!
