Wow, busy weekend! Last night was closing night of Festival@First 5
, including the one-act that plumtreeblossom
directed and surrealestate
, and brief_life
performed in. They all did an incredible job, and it was awesome, and I’m sorry it’s over.
After the performance was strike, which went smoothly, and a great cast party at hahathor
’s stunning house. plumtreeblossom
and I left early (around 1:30am) in part due to concerns about her cats, and collapsed into bed.
This morning we had a lovely breakfast on the patio at The Burren
(in the course of which we ran into ladrescher
, who was in the same one-act as hahathor
), and then I came home to do some more cleaning and kitchen reorganization before my parents (silverlibre
) arrive tonight. Then cathijosephine
came home briefly to take me to the room I rented for them near my house and show me around. (I hadn’t had a chance to go pick up the keys and take the tour, so she had ended up doing it on my behalf.)
And now I’m going to straighten up for a bit, and do dishes and laundry, and have my first shower since strike which I desperately
need, and then I go meet my lovely girlfriend plumtreeblossom
whom I have been dating for two years, and celebrate our two-year Sweetieversary with her at the same dim-sum place where we had our first date! Actually, specifying the start of our relationship is kind of tricky; we met through surrealestate
, but didn’t really get to spend enough time together to get to know each other for quite some time. We did manage to express a certain amount of mutual interest before our first date, but for purposes of celebration, we count our first official date as the start of the relationship.
Thank you for two delightful years, sweetie! I love you.
(Sorry for any sensitive readers who may have gone into insulin shock. :-)
After our Sweetieversary dinner, we’re going to go pick up my parents at the train station and bring them back to Quincy and get them settled into their room. (It’s in a little rooming house just about two real blocks from my house. Very convenient!)
And I have tomorrow and Tuesday off from work, so I can spend the days touring Boston and Quincy with them. Yay!
