Whew!
Hooray, and Thank You Joseph!! I am posting this from my newly refurbished powerbook! What a relief. I'm really grateful to my good friend Joseph for coming over and helping me out. It feels soo good to be back online for real!

I'm way behind on here so will just try to hit a few of the week's high points. Haven't tried back-dating on here yet... I think I'll just make one big entry (hopefully not too big).

Had a good weekend. The BF and I went to Cafe du Nord on Fryday to hear Michael Doughty perform... he's the singer from Soul Coughing (a band which I like, and BF is a big fan of.) He's currently doing solo stuff, and I thoroughly enjoyed his new material (which was really cool and refreshing, and much less grumpy/angry/aggro than the Soul Coughing stuff... also the interpretations of the old stuff he did were really sweet and much more appealing to me.) I enjoyed it a great deal more than the older stuff - how often does that happen? In fact, I liked it so much I bought his new EP, even though I probably won't be able to spin it out much (if at all). It was cool to go up and say "I loved your new stuff!" and it definitely made him smile. I got him to sign the EP To "BF" - which certainly made the boy happy. ;-)

The show was well attended and people were definitely into it, but it wasn't so crowded that I was claustrophobic - I could even see for most of it (no mean feat for short little me.) This was great as I can be reluctant to go to events like that as I dislike being trampled and having beer spilled on me. Everyone around us seemed to be enjoying themselves - especially a woman nearby who was clearly there with both a man and another woman... smooching and snuggling and dancing with both of them. So cute! And a lovely example of happy poly people. Made both of us really happy to see them!

Wednesday I had a fun date with a very sweet man. We've been seeing each other for a few months now. He was just back from N'Awlins where he went on his honeymoon (ah the joys and strangenesses of poly life!) He invited BF and I to the wedding, which was a first for us. (More than one first, actually... as that was where I first met his partner, who seems very cool and sweet herself.) I was glad we went, it was a lovely day and it felt good to be there. No dates for me this week though... I have a nasty cold and feel really crappy. :-( I'd hate to pass it on to anyone, and I'm not very good company at the moment anyway. I just want to curl up and go to sleep. Too bad I can't!

I've also been driving a lot... my test is coming up very soon now. Wish me luck, please!

I'm so glad to hear you having a wonderful time, after the pain of the previous life ago ;)

Much much best wishes for the drive test. I know you can do it.

smooches.

Thanks! Practicing has been going well and I am actually expecting to pass. Today my friend Bill (who I think you met on one of your visits here) went with me and we found an amazing little Japanese restaurant in Berkeley, purely on the random. It was adorable and was very very Japanese... sliding door, little trinkets everywhere, and really good food. They even gave us those weird Japanese pickles. (Yum!) Made me miss Mishaal. I'll definitely be going back there! In fact I expect to be spending a fair amount on gas at first... it will be SO exciting to be able to drive somewhere when I want to!
