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!!
