What is it about insomnia at this time of year? Half the entries in my friends list allude to it, and I've managed to completely invert my sleep cycle. I'm "up late" at the moment trying to shift phase back into sync with the rest of the world. That in turn may eventually turn out to be a not-so-bad thing because the rest of Kodak seems to have an odd habit of coming in bizarrely early, and I've been dragged into a series of 8:30 daily meetings. But it's been wreaking havoc with my life this week.

At least it's keeping my mind off how much I miss linuxspice. And by the time I do get back into phase, she ought to be here, assuming that her back improves as quickly as she let on the last time we spoke. *happy sigh* We just keep going from strength to strength in our relationship lately, and every day we seem to draw a little closer. It's been two and a half years, and if anything, the NRE has gotten more intense; some days, I feel as if my heart could burst. Meeting her family went trimphantly; they're all really sweet, and her parents have been asking her when I'm coming back. :-)

There's a little voice in the back of my head that keeps wondering what the catch is, as this is clearly too good to be true. We're such a perfect fit, and I've never managed to keep a relationship of this intensity going this long, and what did I ever do to deserve to be this happy anyway?

Sorry about the insomnia, but *so* happy for you and Amanda.

Congrats on stuff with Amanda
I'm glad that your meeting with Amanda's family went well and that they want to have you back again. So is her father asking about wedding plans yet? (Or has Amanda made any progress at all to crossing that bridge in any other respect.)

Glad to hear that you two are progressing well and that Amanda's terminal indecisiveness won't cut in this time.

And how come you didn't say hello when you were in the area ;-)? Too busy and my couch isn't good enough any more??

Actually, yes. The last time she came out here for a visit, her dad quizzed her:

Dad: "So, this woman you were visiting: is she pretty?"
Amanda: "Yes -- yes, she is."
"Ah. I see." Pause. "Is she married?"
"Um, no. She was, but they got divorced years ago."
"I see." Pause. "And this pretty divorcee, what does she do?"
"She's a software engineer, like me."
"Oh, very good, very good." Pause. "Surely, she must not be quite so distinguished in her career as you are?"
"Um, well, actually, she's more so."
"Really?" Pause. "Well, perhaps you should marry this woman...."


And how come you didn't say hello when you were in the area ;-)? Too busy and my couch isn't good enough any more??

We were talking about you, actually, and about how it's been far too long since we've seen you. We were going to see what you two were up to for NYE... but then Amanda hurt her back, and we wound up having to stay in. Not that that wasn't also nice.... ;-)

Shall we try to do dinner the next time I come to town?

That, by the way, is a very cool dad. Yay! ^_^

Well, he doesn't know that Amanda transitioned. She's been post-op for three years now.
