I fell asleep sometime during Godzilla v. Mothra
There are times when I wish I was the kind of person who kept a small handful of sexy friends I could call occasionally to say things like "I'm completely alone in a strange house this weekend... why don't you come by to keep me company?" Or perhaps, "How about a special gift for my birthday?" I don't really fit that mold. I do have friends, however, and that's pretty damn cool.

Speaking of birthdays and friends, last night Pete and Drew started talking about taking me out to a place with good food and good drink this week. The idea that had been tossed around was Jacob Wirth's, which from my understanding won't be with us for too much longer. This seemed like a cool idea until later, when a strange series of thoughts hit me. I was up doing the insomniac tango accompanied by foreign house anxiety and some sort of g-i distress when for some reason, spending the evening of my 35th at a restaurant that may be on its last legs began to seem unfortunately portential. I do love the place, but Thursday just doesn't feel like the right night for our next visit.

I have no idea if that makes any sense at all. I suppose I could chalk it freaking out just a little because I'm hitting one of the magic 'five' year markers. Curious.

Ideally, I think I'd like to spend time with friends making up a list of crazy things I should do with myself in the coming year. Or something.

Talk to me! ;)

How about going out for Japanese food on your Thursday? Sake and sushi is never in error on any numerical anniversary of one's birth. Porter Exchange has such a nice variety of choices in both selection and price.

I dare say that sake and sushi is never in error, period. The Porter Exchange is one of my regular haunts. I'd go just because the place feels like what I imagine a back alley in Tokyo feels like, but the food is really well done as well. The one drawback is that the Common Market Shops don't serve sake, and that just makes me sad. ;)

What would you say I should do in the coming year?

confusion

i just turned 33 on the 16th of this month and a friend of mine organized a "party" for me. i wasn't sure how to react during the duration of said party. i tried to be what everyone expected me to be . . . but things seemed so cloudy. i think that maybe i should do some "chalking" as well. ha.

also? if you ever decide to gather up a handful of sexies, i've been labeled that a few times, so don't dismiss me as an option. ;) yeah. throw that on your list of crazy things to do with yourself (and others) in the coming year. :: grin ::

be safe

I'm sorry I missed it... I do wish you a wonder-full year.

Gatherings can be tricky things. For a while, I had difficulty just because I never knew when I'd hit a wall and fall into one of my depressed, 'I'm not sure I can deal with people' states. Something shifted, and I came to realize that what my friends wanted from me was that I just be me. It was quite a revelation, and even though I still have my off days, my whole world opened up.

...and I have to say that I'm quite flattered. ^_^

Well, not totally alone... You've got Annie, the Dog Who Fears Bare Floors. Give her a scratch behind the ears for me.

I can understand the issue with not wanting the last-legs-restaurant on one's birthday, though. My suggestion: pick either an unusual cuisine, or a place that can harbor a decent crowd around a big, communal horde of food. Perhaps Diva, for tapas-style dining? That sort of thing. And letting people know what's going on (hint, hint).

Also - thought you'd be among those to appreciate the new icon. It was a bizarre fit of inspiration, and I needed someplace to post it to.

Err... Umm... I meant Dali, actually, rather than Diva; tapas place, not Indian. Though Indian's not a bad thought either.

That's actually a fantastic idea. I love Dali and haven't been there in ages.

And while I'm thinking of it, isn't there a tapas place in Brighton that has flamenco on weeknights?

Excellent.

Jacob Wirth's is going under? It's such an institution! What a shame. What happened?

I'm glad to hear you're making plans to go out and celebrate on Thursday :-) Keep an eye out for a package at your place sometime in the next three days.

Are you around tomorrow evening for a phone chat?

I'm having small anxiety over it. I'm guessing it will pass, but still..

I have no idea about tomorrow. Just try calling.
