Friday was beautiful, despite the horrible ice storm that hit last week. I found I had two phone cards that needed using, and I phoned someone special, and we were able to speak (though not for long...damn AT&T's **** international flat rates). I still think about hearing his lovely voice and I feel so giddy and childish. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=""> I love the way he says "anything"...

The good-vibe thread! I like it! I'll add a (true) story...<br><br><br><br>
About two weeks ago I bought three tickets to a show that is this Monday night (Raveonettes and Interpol, as if you care). One ticket would be for myself, the other two for two of my former bandmates. I got firm commitments from the two of them that they would go because I was the only one of us with a credit card to buy the tickets with, and so I bought the tickets. Despite drilling them about how they would owe me the money even if they back out, I would have placed even money on one of them backing out and stiffing me. Plus, as always, I would have to drive to the show.<br><br><br><br>
Of course, Wednesday of this week, one of the two backed out. Whether he was going to stiff me or not was uncertain, but Friday afternoon as I got ready to hit the bars with those two guys and some other people, I was getting all riled up to confront him on the issue. This guy is hardly the most reliable, and I wouldn't exactly call him a "modern day genius" or even a "normal person" and I fully expected the money from his ticket went to buying drugs. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's still a bad reason to back out of the obligation. So I'm getting my fur all up on end even to the extent of whether or not I'd take a swing at him if he gets to being a jerk about the money. I'm really getting myself all worked up and thinking about how these guys are always mooching and **** like that. I'm really getting pissed...<br><br><br><br>
So last night we all meet up and head up to Philly where we're meeting up with more of that guy's friends and heading out to the bars. Long story short, besides picking up almost all of my drink tabs that night (birthday thing) this guy was really apologetic about not being able to go, and <i>then</i> realizes that I had already bought the tickets! So he offers to buy the ticket back if I can't sell it at the show and also to buy a pair of tickets to see the same bands the next night in Philly.<br><br><br><br>
Point being this: Not only am I a jerk for thinking I knew what this guy was going to do, but it also made me remember what friends do for friends. That whole night was so <i>friendly</i> and laid-back - the best vibe I've had on a night-out in a long time.<br><br><br><br>
Look out for your people, and they will look out for you. Good times.<br><br>
My Saturday was so relaxing this weekend. I started the day by sleeping in (oh the joy of not getting up at 6 am!!). Woke up to a beautiful spring day. Started out going for a short run w/RSJ, then grabbed a cup of coffee & read while RSJ finished his run. It was so nice to read something that had nothing to do w/work or the class I'm taking. We then went to a local teacher supply store where I got some Dr. Seuss books for my classroom. We had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants downtown. It was nothing big, but it was a fun relaxing day spent w/someone who means so much to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="">

This weekend we drove around our new neighborhood (moved 2 months ago) and checked out all the pretty places. It was cold but sunny and beautiful. Took puppy to dog park, and watched her romp around with other dogs. Then we went to a vegan raw foods restaurant called Ecopolitan and had the absolute tastiest meal we've ever had.<br><br><br><br>
Monday I bought new forum source code, just like vBulletin, but written in C# and is totally customizable to how I want it to integrate into my websites. I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. Monday night was puppy training class where Maddie is the star of the class, always picking up new skills immediately.<br><br><br><br>
Tuesday I ran 5.5 miles which was a proud accomplishment for me. I got my treadmill Feb. 3, and have been slowly building up, but never over 4.5 miles. Yesterday I did it and felt great! We also went for dinner with a good friend we rarely see. He let us order vegan entrees (we share the food at this restaurant).<br><br><br><br>
Today its 20 degrees, still cold, so I might hit the bookstore. I crave books and knowledge as much as I need food. Might pick up a few programming books that I see are on sale, or pick up a vegan cookbook.<br><br><br><br>
Husband just called and said to plan for a nice vacation this summer, we might hit Hawaii.<br><br><br><br>
Basically everyday is beautiful and I always feel natural euphoria.
