Bits & Pieces: to J.

Another XL tweet:

@CanoeU I have this overwhelming feeling of nostalgia today. The rain triggered it and I wished I was camping. Cuz even in the rain, we're outdoors and together. Playing cards under a tarp, Nalgene bottles full of rum & mix, or vodka & mix, the lantern attracting the bugs. Now I can't go camping because sleeping even on an air mattress kills me - the over-night damp turns my bones into ice cubes, brittle and aching.

Laughing at videos reminds me of friends, silly times, the best times always happen when we're doing nothing at all...Watching ridiculous movies and reciting the dialogue in real-time - "Yogurt? I HATE yogurt! Even with Strawberries!" "I'm French, why do you think I have this outrageous accent, you silly king!" , every spoof movie on earth, and you are the only one I've ever watched them with. And now I can't even plan to sit on your patio this weekend while you pull weeds and get the yard ready for spring, because I don't know if I'll be awake, or any fun. And yet that's just what I need - some fun.

I miss you more every day.


I sometimes write things that I don't really mean or believe. These are not to be taken literally, nor as definitive statements about me or my beliefs. Thoughts and emotions are transient, and I reserve the right to change my mind, generalize, exaggerate, give strong opinions, or write other possibly offensive statements. I don't lie, but I may say something that's not true to check whether I believe it or not, or to make a point. Call it creative license. This is my blog, and do have the right to say what I want. I'm using it in creatively therapeutic ways. Whatever the reader may think of me and my words, please believe that my core intentions are always good and I never willingly hurt anyone.
