Why Are Short Weeks So Very Long?? [Jan. 4th, 2008|10:40 am]

Back at work after a very nice (and much needed) Winter Break. My first day back was this past Wednesday, and it was VERY hard getting back "into the swing" of things. Al is completely moved in as of now, and we're settling in nicely together. He shops like an old suburban lady, and we went yesterday to the Hilltop Butcher Shop in Weymouth to stock the house up with meat. I have NEVER in all my days seen so much meat in a person's freezer - hehehehehehe... Anyway, all is going very well on that front, his room is kind of small, and with all his bedroom furniture, it is very "cozy". My bedroom has basically become a glorified walk-in closet, and we generally just sleep in his bed so far. I must confess, I actually called in yesterday with a "nasty cold". Al had the day off, it was like 4 degrees yesterday morning, and I just couldn't see myself getting out of bed, and walking 20 minutes to the bus in that weather. So, I called in, and we scoped out potential living room and lounge furniture all day instead. Oh well...

Just need to make it to lunchtime today and I can have my customary Friday payday lunch/beers at Cambridge Common...I can make it!!! I know I can!! Driving up to New Hampshire tonight to get cheap cartons of cigarettes, possible seeing Sweeney Todd as well. We'll see...

Well, it's been QUITE some time since I've last posted in these hallowed halls...just about SEVEN months to be exact!! Well, in that time, let me just say that A LOT has happened...

Most of this past spring and summer was spent dealing with my colossal breakup with Adam. It was a rough fucking road, but I am very happy to report that I've come out the other side (as of a month or 2 ago) and am officially "over it". I would say 5 months' recovery for a 6 1/2 year relationship is not all that bad of a ratio. Of course, the recovery period involved consistent heavy drinking, lack of attention to my home/cats, and to an extent my health (both mental and physical). I am happy to report that, these issues too, are all cleared up.

I have been doing palm and tarot card readings at Flann O'Brien's on Monday nights for the past few months. "Cosmic Monday" we call it. I don't get paid, but I don't pay for anything the whole night I'm there, and I do have a tip jar. Some nights are better than others...around Halloween it was obviously very popular, and I was making good dough. By now, it's always a solid crowd and somewhat of a following has developed. So, that's been good...

In news on the homefront, I had some Northeastern senior renting out the extra bedroom in my apartment since September 1st. He moved out just last week (YAY!), so I was on the hunt for someone new back in November. I only got one reply to my ad, this guy who operates tugboats and barges in New York and Boston Harbor. His email seemed weird, and when I spoke with him on the phone, he sounded like a total dumb MASShole...reluctantly, I agreed to at least meet for a drink...he was, afterall, the ONLY reply I had, and December 1st had arrived. From here, the tale becomes strange with breakneck speed... The second the guy walked into the bar, I was SO relieved! VERY cute, blue eyes, just great (in my opinion). We had a drink, I showed him the apartment, he wrote me a check on the spot. He's not technically slated to move in until January 1st, but we kind of went on a date a couple of weeks ago. He's a TOTAL drinker, smokes, likes good food/restaurants, etc. We had an absolute blast and kissed goodnight at the end of the evening. Just saw him again last night - he is most likely moving in sooner vs. later. We had some drinks at a few bars, bought some wine and groceries, went back to the place, and I cooked a kickass pasta with a sausage cream sauce (please refrain from inserting snickers or innuendo!). We had a blast, and he ended up staying over and sleeping in my bed...'twas VERY nice! No sex, just sleeping and really nice intimate contact...as corny as that sounds...

So, everything seems to be going swimmingly since last I reported. Potential amazing new relationship, and at the very least someone I can certainly deal with to share my place. Still haven't done ANY Christmas shopping...don't get paid until Friday, so as usual, I'll be hitting the stores on the 23rd - hehehehehe...

Hope all is well with all concerned - have a great holiday y'all!!

Some Days Are Easier than Others [May. 7th, 2007|01:04 pm]
Adrien
Having sort of a difficult time with the situation between Adam and me today. This is, by no means, some huge angry break-up where someone was caught cheating, or there is any bitterness or malice. He simply decided that he wanted to work with his father on a new business venture, and this necessitates him living down in New Jersey (ugh...).

We have been together for nearly 6 1/2 years, and this separation is, in many ways, a very good thing for both of us. Neither of us have really been pushing ourselves to advance as individuals and follow any of the personal goals that we may have had for ourselves before we got together. The last couple of years have seen more constant fighting between us, too much booze and drugs, and not the happiest times of our relationship.

But, still - it's just so difficult to carry on and go about your business when you're used to having someone there the whole time, and then they're just gone. And to make matters worse, he's not even really moved out yet. He spends most of his time down in New York working with his father, and then comes back up here every other weekend, or so. Like the title of the entry says, some days are easier than others...Today is not one of the easy ones...

Happy Administrative Professionals Day!!! [Apr. 26th, 2006|12:48 pm]
Adrien
Hey All,

Happy Administrative Professionals Day to one and all - to those among us who are pre-P.C. - this is merely Secretarys Day in disguise... My dear friend Emma works at this huge upscale florist here in Boston, and when I came back in from my cigarette break, there was an ENORMOUS arrangement of Tiger Orchids on my desk. I thought this might be from my boss (since, though she's a raving bitch and psychopath, she's generally quite good at marking celebratory events...) - when I opened the card, I read the following:

"Since I'm sure your boss forgot about you, Happy Secretary's Day!!
Love, Emma"

TOO MUCH!!!! The arrangement stands taller than me when I'm sitting down, and I've placed it at a wonderfully strategic angle where my boss is sure to see it whenever she passes by - hehehehehehehe...

In other startling news today, I awoke quite late due to being too drunk last night and not setting my alarm - I got dressed called a taxi and ran downstairs. As I'm waiting for said taxi, I notice a letter scotch taped to the front door of our house, addressed to my b/f (Adam) with our old address from a year ago. It's a summons from Boston Court to appear today, and informing him that a bench warrant has been issued for his arrest for failing to appear in court previously (if they had sent prior notices to our current address, I'm sure he would have appeard.) At any rate, the letter continues, saying that he may now be arrested at home or at his place of employment at any given time...the fun never ends...he's in court (literally) as I type this...

And all this on a New Moon... I've had too much coffee and breakfast fare today, and I'm cultivating a devestating headache...

The week's about 1/2 over...

Would it help it if I knocked on wood? [Mar. 25th, 2006|03:18 am]

Well, it's been some time since I've updated, I do realize (not that anyone actually reads my entries the way I obsessivley read all of those on my friends page [or you do and don't leave a comment, you voyeuristic bastards!]) - nonetheless, I'm saying hello now. It is currently 3:20am (EST) on Friday night/Saturday morning, and I have gotten fucked up good and soundly to celebrate my first week of actually going to work all day for 5 straight days in some time. Beyond the miracle of not being fired for my truancy (or even reprimanded!!) - I have finally emerged from my little (read: HUGE) slump, and decided to get back into life (without "Depend", thank you very much...) and work at my job once again (read: SHOW UP AT ALL). It's ridiculously late, I'm drunk, coked up, and horny - so between porn mpeg's I bid one and all a hearty "hey!" - more to come as sanity and ambition slowly return...
