Living in a Dream

Sometimes I just think too much

Uneventful weekends, but still…

If everything seems under control, you’re not going fast enough
-Mario Andretti

Another day and another new journey is on the horizon. 🙂 Tomorrow I’m heading south to help out at another office for awhile. I’m nervous but not the same kind of nervous that I had before  when The Lady sent me north. 🙂 So I’m counting it as good. It doesn’t hurt that I went to school with the boss’s cousin either. 😀

On a different note-

Movie night went alright. We only made it to intermission on It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World. But still the fact that Lyo and I sat down for 3 hours and watched a movie together was really nice.

It wasn’t like we were dating again, which I think is the main reason people have Date/Movie Night. It was more like being close without the pressures of sex. Just holding hands or arms…or his head on my lap. It was comfortable.

That is what I’ve been missing.

So it was like a lightbulb moment only more like a missing piece put back. I had missed feeling close without the pressure of sex involved. So now I’m even more determined to have movie night every week.

I also have another goal to achieve. Getting more exercise. I haven’t been going to the gym nor have I been doing much walking or biking either. Of course the weather is just now starting to cooperate, but still. I could have gone all last month but I didn’t.

Sometimes I’m really bad at follow through. Okay so it is most of the time. 😛 I come up with the idea. I embrace the idea. Hell, I even make plans to follow through with the idea, but I just don’t.

I fail at crossing the finish line.

At least on things that should be important but really aren’t to me. ~shrugs~

Maybe they weren’t all that important to begin with.

Maybe. 🙂


Cast of Characters Pt. 1

Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere.
-G. K. Chesterton

So I thought I would introduce you to all the people in my life that I consider important since they are part of the reason for my writing here. That I need someplace to keep track of what names I’ve given them online. 😀

I’ve divided the people up into Pack and Friends. Pack are closer than friends and better than the family you grew up with. Friends are just about anyone else who I am somewhat close to, but only partly.

First up my Pack:

  • Lyo (aka: My Mate, Mine, Hubby, Husband) : He is a big teddy bear when it comes to just about anything. We do have our moments, but all in all- I got a good deal when we hooked up. And I hope I show that to him every day. 🙂
  • Jax (1979 – 2009): Even though she gone Jax is still one of the biggest influences in my life. She and I knew each other from our teen years and even after some rocky reconnects we managed to stay close. 🙂 I still think about her everyday. I don’t keep in touch with the rest of her Pack as often as I would like, but for the past 3 years I haven’t been online much… In any event- those in her Pack that I know pretty well (I think) are Cate, Max, Kim,Torian, Kadin and Tianna. They show up here occasionally too.
  • Matt: Out of all the people I’ve met through Jax’s Pack Matt is the one I’ve kept in touch with most frequently. I always kind of picture him as a younger brother that I love hanging out with to either annoy, torment, or laugh with. Mostly all of them. 😀

Now for my friends-

  • JJ: I’ve worked with JJ for awhile now. Funny, smart, and extremely honest about most things. JJ can be a bit of sneak at times (okay maybe a lot of the time), but that is what makes working with JJ so fun. You never know what’s coming up.
  • Switch: Switch is…well a light switch. You never know if it is going to be a good day and have Talkative Switch in or  if it’s one of the bad days and Bitchy Switch or Snarky Switch is coming in. Debate Switch can be fun since I enjoy crushing preconceptions on just about anything if I can help it. And Debate Switch gets it going every time. 🙂 Also Switch has this habit of raising her voice an octave or two when she thinks your not listening to what she says…or if she disagrees with you. Annoying but I try to keep remember she isn’t really yelling.
  • JonBoy: Oh, where to start with Jonnie? The only person I’ve seen more disorganized and clutter prone was Jax and she had good reason to be. JonBoy is just everywhere. He can’t help it or so it seems. And I do take pity on those that can’t understand computers. I’m not an expert, but I’m pretty good at the level I am at. JonBoy can’t even get a computer powered on without a button that says start. Gods know why someone gave him a Windows 8 laptop, but I doubt he’s used it more than twice since I set it up for him. ~sighs~
  • Lyssa: Someone I met during NaNo. She is fun and quirky (yellow galoshes) and a writer. She has lots of stories to tell about the places she’s been.
  • Mira: Another NaNo person who is as much a coffee hound as I am. She writes professionally which I would love to do, but it makes hanging out with her sometimes hard to do. That and the fact that she lives 3 hours away.
  • Muppet: Here is another of my wayward cases. Although she does have some skills with a computer it mainly focuses on searches and emails. Not bad. She reminds me of an innocent kid who is stepping out into the real world for the first time. Except in Muppet’s case she’s been out there before. I worry about her, but aside from helping her out with a few odds and ends we aren’t really that close so I can’t really give her advice. That and she is a huge history buff. So Muppet and Lyo get along great. 🙂

All of these people have some sort of impact on my life…and its been a good thing. I’ve left out the people I don’t like because honestly….I don’t feel like drudging up the old arguments and feelings. Today is about celebrating the people that I like. And while this list isn’t a complete one its the best I can do for now. 🙂
