asleep at mal 9/09
life continues at its usual whirlwind pace here in la la land...

clubbing twice a week, searching for a new place to live, working too much, finding time to spend with t, plus all the usual stuff

both t and i have had nasty colds for the past week or so; today is the first day i've felt almost human since last wednesday - none-the-less we did go out to bunker friday, mal sunday and wumpskate monday - i decided a cold was not going to make me miss my fun

things with t are good. we enjoy so many of the same things i sometimes wonder if we're not too similar. but the dancing, oh the dancing - i can't even begin to describe how much i am enjoying having a primary partner who enjoys clubbing and dancing as much as i do

other than that, been working on my taxes (boo for CA witholding refunds - must adjust state withholdings for 2009) and realized my medical bills for last year were absolutely insane, and that doesn't include the special diet either

doing my best to stick to the doctor's plan re: meds and diet while finding new and different "me safe" meals and not go broke doing that is hard. i'm working out regularly as usual to keep muscle tone and my weight stable - it seems to be helping a bit. and i joined www.sparkpeople.com which is making me more aware of my carb intake and the fact that i needed to add more fiber to my diet and stop worrying quite so much about total carbs and concentrate on net carbs

there are a few other people one or both of us are flirting with - perhaps one of these days i'll actually get to go out with a girl again (why is it that sooo many women are crazy or full of drama, and the ones that aren't are taken or immediately uninterested when i tell them i'm bi?!)

and both t and i have been having a ton of fun with wumpskate - i sort of wish it were every other week rather than once a month though. i seem to be very slowly remembering how to skate, and going more often would probably make picking things back up easier (although i didn't fall this month, and did manage to make it around the rink twice backwards - pinwheeling my arms and looking silly the whole time, but whatever)

why looking for new place to live?

that 'bi and flight' thing is easy for ME to understand... esp when coupled with polyamuory. (Ive been on both sides of the coin.) its the ones who WOULDN'T find that challenging who are the drama crazies... tee hee.

Damned if we do... damned if we dont.

new place to live - house/compound for sale, bellz & jody found an apartment back in west hollywood (where they were before the house), ty and i just found a place not too far away, a bit further west (but in a straight line) that has space for hot tub & bowflex & patio/grill set outside so we're happy

"bi and flight" yeah - i guess i understand that somewhat, but it's the attitude that goes with it that's annoying to me - the all men are evil thing, and you should only sleep with women

finding it challenging is definitely something i'd expect, but i keep hoping i'll meet a grownup who can deal with it (i miss my last gf damnit - she understood perfectly but moved to london a few years ago) - boys are easier though - tell them the truth and most of them are like sex without committment = sweet!

Boys are always easier to deal wtih, aren't they..? :D

Hey, so happy life in LA-land is good for you & that you will still have room for the hot tub, bowflex, etc. I was worried about your prospects! & hearing about you & Ty makes me very very happy. Wish you have a little more time together but you've gotta pay rent & absence hearts etc, especially when you live in close quarters, sometimes.

Sounds like things are looking even-keeled, darling. Yay!

yeah - thankfully the rental company talked to our landlord and took the fact that i paid rent/etc on time into consideration given how bad my credit is atm

when he called to tell me we were approved he asked if i knew how bad my credit was and i said yes i do, i'm working on it as i said in the cover letter; they basically approved us because t's credit is better than mine and i got an excellent recommendation from j plus the fact that i was up front about the credit mess and said that having a place to live and paying for that on time comes before the bills from the ex or a lawyer for the divorce

also thankfully we got paid yesterday so we'll be able to do the security + last month + partial for february and pick up the keys next week - so we can take our time moving in

will post a link to the place once we've signed the lease and it's official (still a bit worried they may change their minds or someone better will make an offer)
