Rarranging Plants, Hearts and Dog Ears
OK there we go... nose blown, fresh hot drinky, brushed teeth and a pee to boot. yay!
Listening to Combustible Edison and The Rebirth of Cool Six. Googling those I learned the new words "Leftfield" "downbeat" "downtempo". I already knew "electronic lounge" and "trip hop". Hmm. Now I am up on 1996-98 music. Dang. hehe. It is a tape that Disappearing Boy has.
Anyways, he feels comfortable working here, but uncomfortable being in my hair, worried about me sleeping, and odors (haha, no not him, rather if he does oil painting here) and all... anyhows it is still rather flou but seems alright. I think the best thing is that we have the communication open so that it isn't a tensionfilled thing with everyone wondering and no one asking questions.
So yeah, yesterday he came over around 7:30 pm and we completely rearranged the small double room. It looks great. I moved the furniture in with the plants, and moved the plants around... totally comfy livingroom type space, and since half the walls are the same color as the Moroccan room walls, it still all fits nicely colorscheme wise. And it IS nice having the plants interspersed with the couches. That left mostly bookshelves and bureautype furniture in the back half of the room, and he is set up for drawing. Drew all day today. Now he is sleeping. We drove to buy art supplies after I got back from my watercolor class and I drew my comic page. There are advantages to having friends with cars who are into the arts. hehe.
Anyhews, so far it is fun and we get along well like always. The bizarre thing is that it is making me miss ob huge big time. I miss our funky crazy adventures and how she was gungho to do stuff, how we had funky wild sex that involved everything from playing with fire to praying and knives, spoken word fantasies and dressup, softness and scariness... all as well as caressing and kissing and cuddling. Not that I should complain about a guy that kisses and cuddles. I think also it is him in the room I was painting for ob. It brings up the fact that that didn't work out. Oh well.
It is still incredibly nice to have another person in the apartment. To not have that half of the place be like some sort of abandoned warehouse that no one lives in. To see light in there and walk by and someone is quietly drawing. To offer someone else coffee, or take a break for dinner. Incredibly nice.
It is also sort of reassuring I haven't become a completely antisocial curmudgeon. If I can stand him around maybe I could stand having a kid. Not the same thing I know, but I was starting to wonder if indeed I was so used to be alone in my space that I would be driven crazy by the simple presence of someone around. Nope. No worries. Cool.
Anyhews, like I said, the room rearranged looks great, and now with my studio rearranged (sorry, I keep meaning to finish it, but I'm back to work fulltime and so it is sliiiiiiding again), the house feels sort of fresh and refurbished.
Well, that is what is going on with me.
Doggy's ear is doing great, and her toes and eyes too, thanks for asking. I think the antibiotics in and out and all the extra cleaning attention did the trick. The hair is growing back and she is peppy and back to her normal self. yay!
Well, back to work. I'm working on the Leo's Dog book. The guy who wallops the dog hehe.
