Contradictions

After all my jaded talk in my last entry, I found that I was in the midst of a blissfully peaceful weekend.

The pager was remarkably quiet (although I may jinx myself by saying this, I'm willing to take that risk) and G and I had a nice, relaxing weekend. We rented movies -- some old (War Games), some new (Bewitched), and some that reminded me of Lorem's hubby, even though I've never met him (Mallrats, even though I fell asleep halfway through).

My mom, dad and brother came up to visit today, and although they only planned on staying about fifteen minutes, they ended up staying for a few hours and we had a wonderful visit.

I got all my Thanksgiving shopping done (I'm cooking for the abovementioned family plus my grandmother) and afterwards, we had a quiet evening tonight, just the two of us.

It feels so normal, and I haven't felt normal in a long, long time. I like it.

G's downstairs right now, playing his guitar, and I think I'm going to go join him. That's part of our history -- before we started dating, we made music together, which is a wonderful way to start a relationship -- and reliving it makes me feel like my old self again.

I will make a comeback, I'm now sure of it.

I've never seen 'Mallrats' and have little desire to see it. Actually, I'm not too crazy about Kevin Smith's movies, although the DVD 'An Evening With Kevin Smith' is hilarious and I could watch it over and over again. If nothing else, go rent that one!!

By the way, KS is a huge comics geek and has written 'Daredevil,' 'Spider-Man' and 'Green Arrow' comics (I had to ask my husband this - of course, he knew off the top of his head) and, for better or worse, discovered Ben Affleck many years ago. Also he's our age and dresses like a fat adolescent skater, but his stand-up is so engaging I don't even notice it anymore... much...

The only reason it reminded me of J is the comics connection, to be honest. No offense meant! :)

Normal? What is that again?!?!?

So glad you're finding a sense of normalcy in all this madness.

Lisa that sounds lovely. I'm so glad you had such a restorative time. Being able to make music together must be a great gift.
