Trading comments on LJ gave me encouraging breaks during my unexpected workday, which I closed with late lunch/early dinner at Blue Willow Tea House (taci, they have a rhubarb dessert there!). Unusually busy, but I got recognition and a shoulder touch from my smiling waitress friend, who remarked, "It's always nice to see you."
The evening included an IM conversation with my best friend Christopher (my reflections from same may comprise a separate entry), a failed nacho project (when the cheese is green, abort), laundry and dishes (domestic bachelorhood is also dead sexy), watching the documentary e-Dreams (about the failed Kozmo.com, atop whose former Seattle base my office resides), and now a second trip to Victrola (just to get out).
Tonight I watched a couple paint together at their table, contributing to a shared work of art. Someday I think I would like to do that with someone, too. But when we do it, we will smile. The whole time.
