On an impulsive whim we decided to go see Blue Valentine at the Vista. Tears the entire time. I won't ruin it, but it's pretty sad and heartbreaking in a lot of ways. Great acting though in a way that doesn't seem like acting at all. Just feels like memories really, not specific to me or to anyone, but moreso to everyone at some point in time. Maybe I'm generalizing but it just felt that way.
So I guess getting out of a movie like that on such a beautiful day just called for some recuperating time right there on the sidewalk in front of the theatre. Shoes off, eyes a little red, but skin warm.
Decided to have my own little photo shoot and play with my camera phone....
Yes, yes I know. I'm still in recovery mode. That was a Bad Idea, though very fun at the time.

And now, meet Echo....
My 1 year old ball python. I got him yesterday, and I'm in love. He's still adjusting to his new home and a little skiddish at times but I already love him so.
And other things.....
No pictures here, just words. It's time I catch up a little, it's been so long. Breaks are good though and I guess this one was well needed. It's a new year, a new start - although I actually don't feel like I need a new start, maybe just a refresh button on some things but other than that I'm pretty fucking happy with myself and the way things have been. It seems as though all that fantasizing about the future while I was up north has manifested into little realities and bits of truth. Thank you Universe, I knew you were listening - I'm grateful beyond words.
New home - still settling in but feeling much more like mine and ours ;), new job = completely different schedule and it's not a 9 - 5 (woohoo!!!) AND it's something I really enjoy doing. Being back in the bar industry suits me rather perfectly. I do understand how that might sound given the earlier material of this post, but don't fret I don't like whiskey that much ;).
Oh me oh my, good times, good times.
Cheers everyone ~ Happy 2011.
Do what you feel, do what you love.
