A String of Great Days

My friends,

This is just to say that I've had an outrageously long string of great days in my life. This has prevented me from writing for two big reasons:

1. Why write when I'm feeling good? I know that doesn't really make sense, that it's not a defensible stance, but there it is.
2. I recently visited DC and Utah; I recently wrote, submitted, and defended a master's thesis; I recently participated in a literary festival; I recently saw all the current blockbuster films of the season; I recently sent a woman flowers; I recently met my niece; I recently rode a bike for 20 miles; and on and on. Tomorrow I leave for Idaho for six days.

Besides, the journey to the East is at an end: my graduation is in less than a month.


Proof I'm not dead, or wasn't, two months ago.


The really real reason, though? I fell in love. I spend all my blog time thinking up sweet nothings to whisper delicately in the dark.

Into my cell phone.

Gay! What's with all this High and Mighty Happy crap? You make me sick. You are scum between my toes. you are on a slippery slope to becoming like Andrew, who is nolonger my brother but just a relation. Love?! It's for the birds. I know, I watched Bambi.

Haha, that last bit was brilliant. BRILLIANT.

And also, now that your Journey to the East is over, what's next?

I'm sure "what's next" is Journey Into the Frozen Tundra of the North. What is wrong with the Homecoming of the Sticky South? Er, Southwest?

Like I commented to your sweetie (and yes, I did leave a comment) you people are WAY too mushy! But I'm still happy and excited for y'all. I wonder when you two will stop seeming all cautious and serious around the rest of us. Jubilation, please.
