A good Monday

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 silveronthetreenerdy 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
happy quasi-anniversary
me: !
Dammit I forgot!
Bing: snicker
me: I can't even remember the date.
Bing: I only remembered because it's on my calendar
It's been staring at me all day. I KNEW THAT
Bing: laughs
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.

How sweet!

Yay for unexpected mail.

I'm the boy too. And I have an actual wedding to be remembering, but I could fare no worse if it was a completely random date chosen.

Glad you are feeling better about things.

me and Henry don't have a proper anniversary either, we haven't set a fake date for one though, yet.

Yay! You do have an awesome girlfriend. And I am glad things are better.

I hope I wasn't too distracting - it is very sad but probably fortunate for our PhDs that it took about a year for me to realise that you too were nerdy in a vaguely similar way to me and for us to actually start chatting.

I just read the backs of the comics you lent me - AN ENTIRE BOOK about a relationship! Not what I was expecting. I will let you know what I think about them.

You speak the truth, definitely! It does seem a shame that we lost that year of bonding, though.

I just picked out the books I had in chronological order. I just like that relationship!

It was more that I was surprised that it existed at all! I'm not at all surprised that you have it.
