Le sigh!

Today was lovely. Was awoken by luscious kisses, went to a pond near the wetlands to feed ducks, geese, and the occasional squirrel, returned a man's wallet and was given a nice bottle of cabernet sauvignon in return, went out for yummy Thai food, had a wonderful afternoon of hot, passionate lovemaking, got in lots more cuddling and kissing, more lovemaking, and a nice, languid nap... and then had friends drop by for food and conversation on the patio.

The only negative for the day is I woke up a bit achy. Either I'm paying for a particular feat of gymnastics that felt good at the time or I fell asleep funny on one of the entirely too many odd-shaped pillows on my bed. Nothing that a bit of time in the hot tub / steamroom / sauna at the Y couldn't cure.

Life is entirely too good. I feel happy, loved, and spoiled... which, frankly, is exactly what I need and deserve from life right now. Add in a bit of regular exercise, a good diet, and a rewarding job that I can do from home and I just might make up for years of office-confined neglect.

Life is what you make of it. So, how was your day?!

Oh... did I mention?

Happy birthday to Ariana. I wish I could walk in the woods with you, darling... Ariana is one of those people who knows how to soothe my mind with her words, makes me feel like a puddle of goo, and makes my brain scream "road trip!"

And many thanks to the lovely ann_gwish, who sent me out not just a CDR, but a massive mp3 infusion of Nick Cave, along with several other "albums" I am quite interested in too. I never seem to find the time to burn CDs, so this is most appreciated, especially given the portable mp3 CD player we got awhile back. It would be a nice CD to bring for the long drive to Burning Man...

By the way, I heard that there is a new Cevin Key album out that is really good... how good though? Early Skinny Puppy good? Tired Eyes Slowly Burning good?! Ceven is a great noisemaker, but his best work has been with others who can give his soundscape context. Has anyone heard this yet?

Ann Gwish likes the Walken. I like the Walken dancin.
