I can be shy and I worry about saying the wrong thing, or just not being able to say the right thing. I think I missed out on getting the unwritten script that most people use for social interaction.
Someone particular once told me that he found it amazing how accepting and non-judgmental I am of other people.
But some behaviours make me really mad. I am soft and yielding but if you push the wrong buttons you'll hit the diamond edge.
I see things in black and white....stripes, checks, paisley.
Today I'm spiky, tomorrow I'll be a kitten.
Today I'm at home, creating domestic bliss. An activity I enjoy more than I ever expected.
How can a person be so cut up about a relationship that lasted less than 6 months? So I'm here on OKC looking for a good reason to forget. But people aren't so good at not thinking about specific things, so maybe I'm looking for something else to think about.
I am, however, married. And intending to stay married. And I have 2 preschool children, so going out at night requires some forward planning.
It is spring as I write this so some garden maintenance is occurring.
Update July 2012: what I'm doing with my life is having a baby. So I might be a bit sleep deprived.
Update June 2015: what I'm doing with my life is having a second baby. I'm definitely sleep deprived, short of time and somewhat stuck at home.
Movies: Zoolander, Fierce Creatures, Attenborough documentaries.
Music: 80's, Crowded House, JJJ
Food: I'll try most things once. I just love well prepared food of nearly any cuisine. Although salmon sashimi rates a special mention.
And my sewing machine. I am so needful of it that when I need to take it for a service I borrow one from a friend because I can't bear to be without one for 3 weeks. And sewing is a hobby, not a job.
I'm constantly thinking up new projects to sew / make / do.
Dancing around the house screeching into a wooden spoon.
Exhausted. Zoned out in front of the computer hoping the kids will stay in bed.
Note: I'm married, in an ethical polyamorous relationship. I am NOT looking for 'discreet fun times' or mindless fucking.
