S&G 1

(no subject)

Down another pound, to 174.5 pounds. I'm glad that last week didn't mark a plateau.

We signed up to run a 5k race next Saturday. I've never done one before, which is probably why I'm so worried about it.

We went to McIver Park, and spent a lot of time there.

It looked different - coming back to a wild-ish place after a winter and part of a spring is kinda neat. There were little daisies everywhere, and those horsetail thingies you see all over the place. There wasn't a whole lot of grass under the tree we want to get married by. But that's OK - it is a park, after all, and not some fairyland garden where everything is perfect. We talked about logistics and timing of entrances and exits, and we talked about placement of tables and other things, and we got a lot done even though we raised a whole lot of questions that'll take some time and discussion to answer.

Tonight we go downtown and have much coffee, and then go to Twin Peaks.

Brr.

Tonight we watched Identity. Pretty good flick. The girl next to me noticed me dropping my straw paper into my popcorn bag.
"Oh, is that yours?"
"Yeah, but it's empty."
"OK, 'cause I put something in there."
"That's all right, it's trash!"

In other news, I was thinking about this again this evening as I was putting pillowcases in the dryer: it's dang hard to make friends when you're not going to school, you're working with a lady who should be retired by now, and you're engaged. I never see (and barely talk to) anybody from high school anymore, I don't go out to bars, I don't strike up conversations with random people...

It sounds like I'm bitter about it, but I'm really not. It's just interesting. I think everybody has the same problem - I saw it happen several times with friends - they meet a guy and they withdraw from the social scene. (Or they go out into the social scene together, but that's another story.)

Maybe it's just me, though. I made friends pretty easily in school, but... well, I guess things change. Maybe now I just need to make my own friends from scratch - Cory, where are you? :P
