I got up very early this Sunday morning, but it’s not a big deal, because I don’t have too much to take care of anyway. I laughed really hard again last night and had such a splendid time. When I’m with people like I was last night, they really meet my needs. My good friend and I had about an hour to talk before one of the new couples who I’ve just started hanging out with got to my house. I cleaned up quite a bit too. Then we ate a salad, linguini and clam sauce, and I made veggie sausage and peppers with the best seitan product that I think is available. I seem to make friends who are vegetarian all the time. In fact, when I was at the Post Office yesterday I was in line between two of them who talked to me at length.
We ate the dinner and then we played this game wherein you pass four pieces of paper in a set continually to your neighbor. The game works best played in even numbers because you alternate writing a statement or drawing a picture. So, I would write something like, “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,” and pass it and the three blank papers clockwise, and you’d read that statement and then draw a visual representation of some birds probably, and a hand and bush. After you were done with your art, you’d pass the pile again leaving only your drawing exposed so that the next person has to write a statement about the picture. After four passes, you get your statement back and it’s funny to see the story evolution. You eventually get back yours, and you have two pictures and one other statement if you play with four people like we did last night. Then you can lay out sequentially the story. We laughed really hard and the couple had brought their dog too, so mine was glad to have her girlfriend. (They had hiked two weeks ago together.)
I’ll probably keep saying it… I don’t desire a clone, but rather want a woman who is good to me. Kindness is not that tough. I don’t think that assuming the best really is either prior to living together for a longer period. I do think that in time, little things start to bug someone. I like the talk that I watched given by an anthropologist who said that you are able to get a significant dopamine hit many years into your relationship by varying your sexual routines or simply laughing a whole bunch. I love the latter and definitely am looking for that in my next girlfriend too. It is work to make me laugh, but it’s really easy for me because I can read people easily, so I can fairly quickly gauge what they will find funny.
I’m going out on NYE. I want to find a good, smaller venue like I was in last year. I can’t stomach the huge dance club and really don’t desire any Dickensian Lesbian Nightmares. However, I can stomach meeting some nice girls to talk to and getting some numbers and the like. I’m sure that there are funny nice ones all over the city.
