I always thought John McCain was a zombie …

I’m at a conference, and parts have been good, and parts have been bad.

For instance, the “Welcome to JesusVille” laminated piece of paper that was laying on my bed. I’m actually looking rather attentive at the moment while listening to some total nerdbag talk about technical stuff, but I’m writing this blog instead. It’s 1:47 p.m. … and that’s only five minutes after I looked at the clock last time.

It’s been five months for me and Zilla though. He got me a card that was just absolutely perfect, and we spent a really relaxing “us night” on Friday to celebrate, then went and had dinner with his parents at a delicious steakhouse near his home.

(Sidenote: I’ve got one of the coveted spots near a plug-in. This very very large man (think Jabba the Hutt) keeps giving me the stink eye and then looking directly at my plugged in computer whilst his red light flashes as his battery is dying. And yeah, I’m not taking notes, so take that, Big Boy.)

The card Zilla got me is worth sharing though – and as soon as I get back, I’m going to post it. He also got me a book that I’ve really been wanting called “Ghost Girl.” And beside the book, he’s really the best boyfriend that there could ever be.

The conference is in the town where I always hung out when I was in college … things have changed. My favorite Thai place is now a Starbucks. My favorite vintage store is now a Jimmy John’s. Favorite Chinese place is still around, but was closed last night, so I’m heading there tonight for dinner.

And I miss Zilla like crazy.

This weekend, there’s a really good chance that he’ll get to meet my parents, who reacted to “the letter” exactly as I thought they would, which was very well.

Alright, back to fake listening. I only have five more minutes.

Biggest. Surprise. Ever. (Clay Aiken is Gay? WTF?) (Insert sarcastic tone)

So Clay Aiken is gay. And he came out in People magazine.

Wow. I’m stunned. Really. Not sure how to take this at all. Clay is gay? What, now you’re going to tell me that Ricky Martin, Lindsey Lohan and Lance Bass are all gay too? What is this world coming to? 

And what are all those weirdo “Claymates” who have said for years, “CLAY ISN’T GAY!!!” going to be saying now?

I hope they enjoy that crow they’re going to be eating a lot of.

Off With Their Heads!

“The queen had only one way of settling all difficulties, great or small. ‘Off with his head!’ she said without even looking around.”

Hmm. Interesting.

Sunday Nerves and Tuesday Chicken Chili

I woke up Sunday morning with a knot in my stomach – it was the day that I was going to meet Zilla‘s mom and step-dad.

The weekend had been pretty fun – Zilla and I started our “Conversational Japanese” course, we’d had dinner with Professor McHottie and her partner SoftballShimmy, Crazy/Hot, Jimmylicious, Tater, and Teacher, gone to the Great Forest Park Balloon Race and Balloon Glow, and acquanited SoftballShimmy, Prof. McHottie and Teacher with our favorite little dive bar. We’d gotten delishus sooooshi (yeah, I just felt like spelling it that way) and had some good Welsh pub grub, and while it was a busy weekend, it was also really relaxing and a lot of fun.

But I was nervous the entire time about meeting Zilla’s parents.

It went off without a hitch. They reminded me a good deal of my grandparents, which is not to suggest at all that they’re older, because that’s not the case, but they were just kind and very what-you-see-is-what-you-get kinda folks. I really enjoyed their company a great deal and look forward to getting to know them better.

And speaking of nerves, I’m all worked up. I’m putting the letter to my parents in the mailbox today. I’m going to be all kinds of worked up until I hear from them … if I do.

Fingers crossed.

Tonight though, I’ll be quite content putting my jammie bottoms on and consuming some delicious white chili with chicken and cornbread tonight at Zillas.

And Just Because I’m Kinda Silly Like That…

I saw this photo today on the Astronomy Photo of the Day and it made me think of Tea:

That is all.
