“would have cut it myself if i knew men could climb hair”

May 15, 2008

It never came to that. Though this comic did get referenced by one of Athena’s friends.

I had an exceptional vacation. I met up with Sinclair while i was in the city. We had a lovely chat over mojitos, and she was kind enough to help me navigate the subway – which i’m sure i could have done on my own, but i am also sure it would have taken rather more time and me standing around looking foolish. She’s as interesting and charming as she seems on the internet ;)

I can’t believe it’s been so long since i’ve seen Athena. F’real. It was great. The trip included, roughly chronologically:
Thai food; swing dancing all night and some of the morning (in my skirt and tie); french toast sandwiches with cream cheese, jam, nutella; dinner party with Athena’s very cool friends; Mao; melted chocolate on fruit, followed by suggestive melted chocolate on fruit, followed by melted chocolate on people…; a group reading of Richard III; a visit by another college buddy of mine and Athena’s (fluke timing); DDR (my calves are sore); reading Sense and Sensibility aloud; amazingly awesome sushi; a lovely walk and tour of the town.

All mixed in with the above was, of course, laughing until our faces and abs hurt and talking about everything: racism, sexism, presidential elections; gender expression and attraction; why we are in love with Jane Austin; why we are in love with Shakespeare, Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh, particularly in conjunction (this conversation naturally included quoting of vast swathes of Much Ado); personal opinions of alcohol and various drugs, and use versus abuse; our respective friends and relationships; prying into how i work, and why it made her nervous to do so; etc. etc. etc. It was an amazingly fantastic visit.

Now to see if i can get ahold of Jamie for dinner or at least to say hi before she has to go to work.
