So I’ve dated my share of crazy guys, but lately I’ve been experiencing a blast from the past that was somewhat unexpected.
My personal Facebook account has been a flurry of activity, partly because I finally gave up on MySpace (even though it’s how Jake and I met and how I fell in love with blogging) and partly because I finally had to relax my privacy restrictions so that a close friend who’s an actor and will be a regular on the soon-to-premier Stargate: Universe could find me (he can’t relax the privacy restrictions on his personal profile for obvious reasons).

Got forwarded this by one of my dorky work friends, features anal sex innuendo to sell a product, you people will love this. Very suggestive, quasi-NSFW, maybe watch with headphones on?
LOLz. Also, When was the last time you took it in the can?

So I was driving home when I heard this new PEARL JAM song:
One word: Bitchin’
It instantly reminded me of getting drunk and rocking out at Lollapalooza back in high school, or the maybe the Vs. days in college and how everything was totally new and cool and I still had only ever been with one chick at the time (who’s now married and has three kids). Listening to this PJ song was like getting back to my roots.
That’s right mf’ers:
When something’s on let me shed a little light on it
When something’s cold let me put a little fire on it
If something’s old I wanna put a bit of shine on it
When something’s gone I wanna fight to get it back again
I went to the bookstore on Sunday and read two books: Eat, Pray, Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert, and The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman.
This post isn’t a book review. I read maybe the first 30 pages of each book and had a couple of thoughts, which I want to share, and if I finish either book I’ll review later. Read the full article

So, as I’ve mentioned before (though not super recently), Jake and I set the date: May 12, 2012. We’ve already made some decisions:
- The wedding favors will be M&M’s with our initials
- Jake’s in charge of the cake
We were discussing engagement rings recently because I’d sent him an article from The Atlantic about how shady and terrible and manipulative the diamond industry is, and and we basically decided that it wasn’t an industry we wanted to support. Then we had the following e-mail exchange: Read the full article

Lest you think it’s all having your clothes ripped off and having hot sex all night, I thought I would share a couple vignettes that are fairly representative of Jake and I.
#1: Why Bother to Do It Yourself?
It’s 7:17 a.m. on a Tuesday morning. I have already showered, brushed my teeth, etc. and am in the closet choosing my outfit for the day. The door to our walk-in closet is in the bathroom, so although I’m not far from the bedroom in actual distance, I am two rooms away.
I hear Jake call, ”Baby, what time is it?”
I yell back through the two closed doors, “I’m in the closet, and you’re lying on the bed with a clock on either side of you.”
He replies, “But I’m not wearing my contacts, so I’d have to turn my head and squint!”
Yes. Clearly it is easier for me to come in from another room, put my head right next to his head, and read the clock to him from 1.5 feet away. Read the full article
