Apparently verbally throwing up over LJ worked. Or rather, was a symptom of my recovery, as I was able to put words out there even if they were rather shitty words. (I'm keeping the post public, but I haven't read it since writing it and I don't think I intend to). Anyway, I'm doing OK. I spent yesterday doing absolutely nothing
except playing LEGO Batman, playing with iTunes playlists and baking fairy cakes with Izzy, and today I was able to write.
It was a piece on Lesbian Vampire Killers
for the F-word
, but I also did science and refocused my brain and hung out with nerdy officemate
and in general I'm feeling much better. So thank you all so very much for your support.
I got home today to discover on my desk among my post a voucher for Loop
, the wool and knitting supply shop in Islington. Completely out of the blue, the purchase date was too early to be a breakdown sympathy gift, but as there was no name attached, I decided to accuse you guys in general of buying me stuff anyway. But first, I tried suspect #1
me: Did you send me a gift voucher?
Bing: I might have....
me: :D * hugs * thank you!
How did you hear of the shop?
Bing: I have internet learnings
Dammit I forgot!
me: I can't even remember the date.
Bing: I only remembered because it's on my calendar
me: THAT'S WHAT THAT IS
It's been staring at me all day. I KNEW THAT
and now i'm giggling because I clearly just bought the boy in our relationship...yarn.
The sixteenth of March isn't our real anniversary: we don't have
a real anniversary. We just sort of eventually realised we were each other's... other. But this is sometime around six months after the day we first met, and somewhere near the middle of the space betwen our respective birthdays and we decided we needed a date. We came up with this relatively arbitrary date in November 2007 and this is the first time either of us has remembered it. Clearly we both suck like that.
(Don't worry, it's in my Google calendar now. NEXT TIME, GADGET.)
What I mean to say is: I'm fine. I'm better. And I have the best girlfriend in the world. So there.
