Spending New Year's with the men I love most in the world - my bandmates.

Making my bass player wake up his six-year old daughter, whom I adore to bits, for midnight smooches.

Spending New Year's with one bandmate in particular, Soulman, who seemed loathe to be parted from me.

When I asked Soulman at midnight what he wished for in 2009, he said one word to me: "Love."

- Having a job that is not at a call centre, where people are super nice and respect you, don't get angry when you call in sick, and who actually call and/or leave messages regarding your well-being, and where the phone doesn't ring all day non-stop.
- The light in the winter; it's just so different than summer light and I love it, especially at dusk.
- Getting a text from Rogueboy saying that he loves me and wishes that I had been able to come to the movie with him and his best friend (and how he respects the fact that I couldn't go because I must get up at 5:00 a.m. for aforementioned awesome job).
- My two beautiful little fur babies waiting for me at the door when I come home at night. =)
Snow days!

Eating the goat cheese/cranberry/pecan/mesclun greens salad from Whole Foods. It's such a delicious combination.

Giving a big friendly smile to a cute guy at the gym who helped me out while I was weightlifting.

Having time to bust.
Acing the job interview this morning and knowing in my heart I'm the best candidate for the I just have to WAIT to hear! ARRGH!

The look of absolute adoration and love in his eyes last night, as he gently teased my about my cooking education (or lack thereof).

I will get to see him again tonight, when he picks me up after work.

This big bowl of split pea/ham (with dill!) soup from the deli down the street.

The quart of fresh green herb stashed in my guitar case, right here under my desk, for later on tonight.

Band practice tonight! How can you lose on a day that starts with a job interview and ends with band practice?
Parallel parking on the first try!!!!
Realizing the days really ARE getting longer!


Puppy kisses.
Everything in my fridge amounting to an amazing salad (crunchy-sweet cabbage, grated carrots, sliced radish, fresh mint and italian parsley, apples, and raisins), eaten in the midday sun at our tiny kitchen table.

The temperature rising to above freezing! Yay! Kicking half thawed ice chunks off our front porch!

finding out that the receptionist working underneath our ceiling di-electric union repair project was *way* impressed and remarked to my co-worker who was handing me up stuff, "wow, that was a woman and she just climbed right up in the ceiling?!"

To which my co-worker said, "that's nothing, she is also in her forties"

receptionist was absolutely beside herself. tongue.gif I do love those moments.
A perfectly packed grocery bag. I often cringe watching the food I have carefully selected being manhandled on its way out the door. Last night, a young woman placed my groceries into my grocery sack thoughtfully. It was a beautiful moment.

Watching dance routines from MTV's America's Best Dance Crew and digging it, even downloading some songs because the routines were fantastic.

getting a reply to an email from my oldest, best friend, who knew me when i was a boy in highschool, where he tells me i'm gorgeous, followed by him giving me so much shit i pee myself laughing. remembering how he was always the first one in line to support me but then give me a smart assy, sardonic comment that was much deeper and sweeter than it seemed at first blush.
The shine in his eyes and the softness in his face when he looks at me.

Saying "I love you." (Or even just, "Love ya.")

Hearing "I love you." (Or even just, "Love you too, kiddo.")

Finally finding someone with whom I am truly compatible, and neither of us gives a shit if he is 16 years older than me.
Yesterday I bought a black vintage 1940s tailcoat, and I know exactly how I'm going to wear it.
Chihuahua Puzzle

Showing up at work just before 4:30 with a bouquet of unusual flowers, for no reason, and all the ladies in my office asking what did he do to bring you those, and being able to reply, nothing, he just does these things 'cause he's wonderful.
hearing a voicemail from my best friend wishing me luck today
losing weight
great sunny days
Listening to him talk about building this here and moving that there, and then "maybe we can even grow a garden out front, or on the roof!" And even though you suspected all his abstract discussions about renovating were about you, you finally realized it in that moment.

A crazy long email from him, just when I've convinced myself it's one-sided.
