(Mr. E and I are playing a game of Lexulous on Facebook, and he’s winning. The following conversation takes place)
Mr. E: prepare to be FB ameliorated
Kate: ameliorated means “relieved.”
Kate: or eased.
Mr. E: humm, sigh. facepalm
Kate: Now you know. Isn’t it nice to know?
Mr. E: I will *emolliate* you.
Mr. E: and then ameliorate your ass.
Kate: You’re going to moisturize me?
Kate: Oh, honey.
Mr. E: With lotion.
Mr. E: Bitch.
Kate: You mean “immolate.”
Kate: You sweet, precious thing.
Mr. E: fuck double facepalm
Kate: I feel great affection for you right now.
Kate: You know big words! Let’s just work on the definitions, shall we?
I am happy.
This been going on for over a week now, so I feel like I have to comment on it. It’s not like I’m gleeful every waking instant, but there’s a lot in my life right now to feel grateful for.
I found a job. It doesn’t pay an awful lot, and the work itself isn’t anything special, but it’s a decent job indoors where I’m basically left alone, and everyone’s nice to me, and I can daydream all I want, and it gets me out of the house.
I have made friends in the last month. Beautiful, amazing, wonderful friends. Shout outs in particular to Cate and Danny, a big hearty thank-you to Michael, and hugs to all the other crazy-cool people I’ve met in the last month. Has it only been a month?
And I’m seeing someone. It’s very new and very undefined, but what it is mostly is very good. I’ve decided to give him the blog-alias “Mr. E,” because it amuses me to do so. He has an amazing smile and these crazy-blue eyes and we have a hell of a time together. It’s good. It’s so good.
I even made up with GT, such is the strength of my good will.
I’m happy. I hope it lasts.
