Other crap that's on my mind.

A website about things you probably don't care about, but I do so shove it.

I'm back....well, kind of.


Last week was great. It consisted of:

Going to Portland, to which I decided I will not be moving there any time soon. That place is too slow for me right now. Everyone too friendly. Too cool. And yet too empty. No one on the streets. Seemed to me like a lazy city. The hotel was cool, as was the arts fair thingys we went to and the restaurants we dined at. The views were real pretty, especially from the International Rose Test Garden. But the only thing really worth mentioning about the trip was when we had to go under a bridge and found a little sex hideaway, where it smelled of urine and shit and condoms and pages of playboy were sprawled everywhere. Holding your nose and closing your eyes couldn't have helped. We just made sure we walked quickly and didn't touch anything. That was basically the highlight of Portland.

Going to Mount Saint Helens. This was too cool for school. Glad to know I'm just a few short hours away from this place. If I was a more experienced hiker I would actually consider really taking a week and exploring the area. We only hiked for about an hour or so, but it was really awesomely awesome.

We saw Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! and (more importantly) Architecture in Helsinki. What a great show. Actually I think they could have played Shaina Twain songs and I still would've enjoyed it. What fun! Drinks and smoking and more drinks and running into friends. Did I mention how awesome AIH is? Oh yeah, they were great!!! Plus, I got a cool little shirt that fits me great. I haven't bought a concert shirt in years, but felt I owed this band my money since I haven't bought a CD in about 2 years.

Went to many parks... Including Arboretum, Gas Works and Green Lake

Saw The Science of Sleep. Wow, I had such high hopes for this flick and was deeply disappointed. If you think you're smart and like indie movies you might like this. I love indie movies more than any of you, and just thought this one was trying way too hard. I wouldn't even rent this. Instead rent I am a Sex Addict, because that was good and funny and actually made you feel something. As The Science of Sleep did none of those things.

Actually enjoyed baseball. Of course I think I liked it more because Mike's team (Detroit Tigers) was winning (and for the first time in like 20 years or something...) All I needed was a bar, a few drinks and him explaining every now and then what the point of it all was.

Went out to eat, A LOT! I never eat out so this was kinda getting to me at times. But fuck it, we were on vacation and I was still going to the gym. I wanted to take him to places I've heard were good, so we went to:
Salumi. A meatball sandwich that I will forever have dreams about. Supposedly famous and in a best sandwich list on GQ.
Red Mill Burgers. (we actually ate there twice!) Get a peanut butter and vanilla milkshake. Seriously. Do it. Now!
Dilente Chocolates. Eat desert for dinner and feel good about it. Mike and I do this a lot. Either cake for dinner or ice cream sundaes for dinner. This time we did both and a vanilla soda. YUM-MY!

And ummm, that's it. On Saturday we decided the best thing to do is to break up. He couldn't seem to get any interviews, even after emailing and sending books. He even tried where I work, and they did the passive fucking aggressive shit that people I guess do here in Seattle. The chick said, sure come on Tuesday and when he emailed her back saying, ummm Tuesday what time? She never got back to him. This really frustrated the shit out of me. Just be honest. Say you didn't like his book or you're in a hiring freeze. But don't ignore someone or be completely vague. Ugh. Advertising people.

So yeah, I know I've said we broke up before but this time is for real. We both agreed that we really do love eachother, but at the same time I'm not willing to move back to Detroit and he doesn't think he could get a job and sell his house and move his whole life for me right now. We agreed it will be hard, but that it has to be this way. I think this is the only decision. I know others have told me, but if you're in love then don't break up. But I say, I don't have the money to keep this going for years. I can't keep taking time off every month or so. He can't keep spending money to fly over here or fly me over there. It just gets to be too much. And then you feel like you have to do everything in that week you have together. You can't just lie around and watch TV or knit like normal.

He's convinced I'll find someone soon. But if you know me, you know this is definitely not true. Boys don't just like me the way they like my friends. I have this fun personality. But it just takes awhile to come out. So, we'll see. I'm definitely in no rush to meet anyone just yet. He's sure of it though to the point of betting that I'll have a boyfriend by my birthday. If I win, I get a sewing machine. Something tells me I'll be sewing something real perty in a few short months!

And soooo, that's it. Read The Kite Runner (I almost cried at the gym a few times whilst reading it) and enjoy your Monday.

I'm sorry to hear that you guys broke up. If you feel like talking, I'm here.

Went out of town for a few days...

That sex tunnel sounds real dirty. :)
