Whoa, it's been a while

I assume that almost all of my non-public thought I was dead. The truth is that I am not dead but rather that my life has all of a sudden decided to ratchet up the drama level and excitement for no good reason other than good-natured spite. This drama basically revolved around three central factors:

1) School. But almost all of you know about school and how nuts it gets me sometimes so it doesn't brook much more discussion.

2) Old friends. Many many moons ago (gosh, probably about 5 years) I had a falling out with a very dear friend of mine over her choice of boyfriend. Not a jealousy thing, mind. But rather a genuine belief that he was not good news. I don't feel a need to describe in detail why I felt this way, it was enough that I did and I felt I had good reason to. We haven't spoken since that day, but it made me sad that I had lost that friendship. And, in time I came to realize that many of my assumptions were not based on personal interactions with the guy but rather hearsay and perspectives of people who weren't me. And I was also growing up a tad. So, a few weeks ago, I decided to try and get back in touch, admit my thick-headedness and try to salvage the friendship. I was ecstatic when she wrote back, and we emailed back and forth. Turns out she's recently married the boy. And the way I see it, she's a good judge of character, so I'll give him a shot. We're meeting for brunch this Sunday to catch up, and I'm really glad.

3) Women. Or rather one, particular woman. For those of you who know me, my life with the ladies is one of happenstance and typically involves dating people I know through other means. So imagine my surprise when I started chatting with a complete stranger at a friend's party. We hit it off and made arrangements to go out the next weekend. Things went well and I've seen her a couple times since then. She's fascinating. And that's all I'll say for now, since I'm trying to keep a level head about this. But that's the other reason why I've been a bit distracted lately.

Oh, so exciting, this whole "life" thing...

Wow - that's pretty exciting! I wish my life was that exciting. Or maybe I don't - I don't think I would be getting much work done if it was. But I'm glad someone out there is experiencing change in a good way...

After all, Elmo seems equally disinterested in both...
