Pretty thorough cleaning last night. Did the kitchen-- also cooked the
pork roast which turned out yummy but dry. Can you brine a pork roast?
I also ended up cleaning up my little hobby station, which is probably
the messiest part of my apartment. Hey, it's paint and latex and clay
and various other gooey things. What do you expect?
I put away the christmas lights and actually organized things. I really
like plastic bins, particularly the see-through ones. It makes it a lot
easier to deal with *stuff*.
The apartment is actually quite presentable. Which is good, because I
have a guest coming down tonight-- my first friend that is coming down
specifically to see me. She's actually making a special trip to drive
down from Minneapolis to spend the weekend.
Honestly, I'm a little nervous. Just a little. I don't know entirely
where my boundaries are with her. And she flirts mercilessly; I am
humbled by her ability to throw me off balance. The thing about it is
that we're rarely alone together for any length of time, and now we'll
have a whole weekend.
She's my friend. She is someone who I respect and enjoy, and I want to
continue to be around for a long time. She's also unbelievably sexy, and
is one of only three women that has been able to make me speechless. The
other two I ended up dating, and both of those ended up badly.
I'm expecting that the weekend will actually be pretty relaxing and
slothful, with maybe a little bit of playing. But honestly, I don't
I guess I'll find out.
