A little less than a happy high
Some say he was like a wild beast that was caged for too long.
There are things that surprise me – when people say that they miss me, for instance, or when they take interest in things I'm doing.

I keep managing to miss friends' birthday gathers, and it's starting to make me feel lame. 'Course, it's kind of in keeping with my overall track record with invites. It's disturbing. I enjoy their company, I just can't get out of my own way sometimes. Sleeping would help.

On the upside, I got to speak with Klae for a bit on the phone. It would seem that strange things are afoot in the Land of the December Convertible, but all told, he sounds good. In spite of my sleep-reduced state, the conversation took a long meandering path through the mundane and the transcendent. He helps give me perspective, which often leaves me feeling like he is a much wiser man than I am. Where I can spout endlessly about my only slightly crazy theories and ideas, he looks for ways to make them happen.

I’m not entirely sure where I’m going with this. I know that I have difficulty understanding my own life. I also know that I spend a great deal of effort just stepping into the world, and that I recoil from things that I feel knock me off balance. Sometimes, that recoil is violent. I end up appreciating patience, if only because I have so little of it for myself.

Bah. Like I said, sleeping would help.

Hey, you. I've got class tonight till (officially) 10 p.m. your time, but if I get out early, I'd like to call. Will you be home? If not, what about tomorrow eve?

Doesn't work at all for me. Tomorrow's better, but latish... Pablo is visiting.

Pablo's planning on visiting you tomorrow? As in Wednesday? I suppose that means I am, as well - he and I are planning to do the card-divvying-geekery thing. Or maybe I've gotten things all confused...

I can't fathom why it is that he always wants to take over your house for it, but I'm not complaining, as it provides more opportunities to hang.

It may have something to do with the ready availability of free homemade beverages.

I could be wrong, though. He hasn't actually confirmed that he's coming by... it's just been his habit of late to swing by after going to the store.

Seems somewhat likely that he and I may, then - as long as you don't mind us opening cards at your place, it's a lot easier to do at someone's house than at the store. Of course, we could do that at MY house, but then we wouldn't get to see the Taco Buddha. Oh, and you, I suppose.

Anyhow, I'm going to email Pablo and see what it is he had in mind.

Keep me posted.

Heck, I can't tell what the plan is, even after an email conversation. I think I'm meeting him at YMG, then (if you're around) we're swinging by your place, but there's not any divvying to do, so since Joe B. is crashing at my place and arrives late tonight I may bug out by 9PM and go home to vaccuum and so on. o_O

So the gist is, I'll possibly see you briefly this evening, or not.
