Today's horoscope:

"Tuesday, Nov 9th, 2010 -- You might want the fun times to last forever, but of course they cannot. However, this doesn't mean that you are headed for troubled waters; it's just that your exuberant energy needs to mellow out. If you consider what you have, though, you'll realize that there are many good things in your life, even if fireworks aren't lighting up the sky. There's no need to wait for something better to happen; share your love with those in your life who deserve it right now."

Rick, you marvelous bastard. Why is it that you manage to hit the nail right on the head whenever I get this way?

For those who celebrate, I wish you a very happy Beltane. To the rest of y'all, happy May Day.

For the record, lemon-honey spritzers are both ridiculously tasty and deceptively deadly. Also, in a fight, Grand Marnier would totally beat the ass of Tripple-sec. I'm just sayin'.

Something new.

A little less than 28 years ago, my father took me to see The Dark Crystal in the theater. I'm fairly certain this is the only time I ever went to a movie with just him, and it is one of my happiest memories of him - the wonder and magic which the film inspires in me seems inextricably tied to the memory of him.

Over the years since I've gotten into the habit of watching The Dark Crystal once a year or so, to revisit the memories and enjoy one of my favorite films. This year, it would seem that Cambridge's own, The Brattle Theater, decided to smile upon my little tradition as they put it up on the big screen. So last night, I and my co-conspirator wended our way to Harvard Square and caught the double header of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. There, amid the sea of people who giggled every time the Chamberlain whimpered, for 93 minutes I was transported to another world, another time, when I was a little boy sitting in a darkened room and seeing for the first time the most wondrous puppet show ever conceived of.

A conversation the other day served to illustrate just how far I have come from the angry 23 year old who didn't care enough about anyone to even think about the social ramifications of his actions. I still feel like I have a long way to go to get where I want to be, but it is nice to see evidence of progress.

Said conversation also served to remind me of how difficult it must have been to deal with me back then. [ profile] brunahildm, although I've said this before, if you happen to see this, I'm sorry.

For the record, [ profile] noradannon rocks several varieties of discotheque for filling my work day with interestingness and great conversation.

I ride the whirlwind.


Aralis was pretty darned fun, even with the impromptu trip to the emergency room. Who knew that larps should have health and safety plans? I got in a lot of cool rp with folks and even learned some new contact juggling tricks. Yay. Can't wait for the next session.

Yesterday, was spent hanging out with my love and the Best Man. Good times, yo. It always strikes me as funny that he can listen to me ramble for five minutes and say "so really what you are saying is..." and be spot on. I knew there was a reason I asked him to be my best man. He helped me put into perspective some of the issues I've been having in dealing with Amy and Cheryl showing up at Endgame. Now I just have to sort some stuff out on that front and all will be well. For me anyway.

Very good weekend - Operation Belated Birthday went off with very few, if any, hitches. It seems like a long time since my love and I have had a lazy-ish weekend mostly to ourselves. The more I think about being able to sit on the porch with her in the evenings and just bask in her presence, the more excited I am to be moving into the gnu hauz. Hopefully we'll get some spectacular sunsets.

In other news, as my love has already pointed out, our friends rock the proverbial hizaus.
