A year ago…

It was a year ago, almost to this minute.

It was the culmination of a dizzying weekend. You found out how I felt about you, and I found out how you felt about me. Suddenly, everything shifted into focus.

From Thursday night, snuggled up on the couch and surrounded by our friends, until that moment on Sunday afternoon, when we kissed for the first time (after I nervously asked “May I…”), I felt as if the entire weight of the world was lifted away from me.

That was the day I stopped drifting aimlessly. That was the day I made contact with something real and solid and worthwhile.

Since that day, we’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs. Long separations and too-short weekends. Talking on the phone late at night until we couldn’t keep our eyes open. Counting down the days between the time you decided to until you finally packed up and moved here so we could be together always.

One year ago, the most wonderful year of my life to date officially began. And I’m looking forward to sharing all the rest of my years with you, from now until the end of time.

Always and forever, I love you.

Happy anniversary.

Weekend Update

I was gently chided recently by one of my friends for not posting enough about what’s going on with me lately. She pointed out, quite sensibly, that one can’t always assume that no news is good news, since I often went silent when I was dealing with lots of adversity. So this is an attempt at reporting what’s been going on, and those who don’t care to read such things will probably want to skip ahead to other items on their friends list, one of which is probably a good bit with links in it.

Friday night has become a TV night for kitanzi and me, as we snuggle up to watch Joss Whedon’s new series, Firefly, which is a nifty SF/Western with interesting characters. It’s not perfect, but it’s always intriguing, and gets lots of little things right. Rumours of the shows death have been hovering over its head since it premiered, so I hope this one isn’t going to turn into another show I really like that disappears after half a season. I intend to enjoy it as long as it runs, though.

kitanzi had been planning on going to my coworker Aileen’s baby shower, but she’d been feeling under the weather all week, so she elected to stay home rather than go and expose people to whatever bug she’d picked up. We did light housework, went and got haircuts (needed, since OVFF is coming up soon and we’re not going to be home next weekend), then came home and spent the evening watching the DVD of Beauty and the Beast, which I had picked up a few days ago but not had a chance to sit and watch yet. It was a lot of fun watching this movie again after so many years. The special features, with all the behind the scenes footage, was also a lot of fun to watch.

Sunday we got up early and went grocery shopping, then came home and finished up with the housework before sitting down and watching four hours of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season One DVD, also a recent acquisition. I hadn’t seen a lot of these episodes in a LONG time, and at least one of them had managed never to see at all, so this was even more fun.

So lets see, the weekend consisted of getting haircuts, watching TV, and housework. (And snuggling, of course). A thoroughly boring, unexciting weekend at home.

Life is wonderful. 🙂


Nobody rescues famous SF memorabilia collection

Cthulhu says…

In discussion last night about the “God says…” billboards, we came up with the notion of a “Cthulhu says…” billboard campagin. Among the suggestions:

“Got ketchup?” –Cthulhu

“I save. I may want a midnight snack.” –Cthulhu

“Have you read my book? Big mistake, bub.” –Cthulhu

“What part of ‘I would run if I were you’ did you not understand?” –Cthulhu

“Big Bang? No, Big Buffet…”

Feel free to add your own. 🙂
