Fortunately, it usually passes, and it has yet to firmly entrench itself. I'm painting the nursery tomorrow, so that may well be the thing that makes the panic stick for good.

and suddenly I'm reminded of the Bill Cosby routine about childbirth.

I think it needs to "cook" for a bit longer

I don't have anything "lined up", but I think she will be happier in the long-term - I couldn't/wouldn't give her what she needed. She's a great girl and deserves a more head-over-heels type of love than what I was prepared to offer. I'll be happier because I won't always be reminded of how disappointing I am

Was into work at 7:30 this morning.

Dude, to know that you are happy about the breakup changes the response to your PM. Now I definitely think you should make the 5 hr drive on up to Chicago. We will go out and get some random strange. And if we get turned down by chicks, much like Conne and I after the Tina Turner concert, we always have each other.

A couple seatings became available on open table and I couldn't pass up the opportunity. Going with my brother and sister. We could probably add another person if you want to come. lol

Congrats dude! I mean that sincerely. Maybe because my undergrad career took a couple years longer than it should have been, and in my last two terms I did the equivalent of 4.3 terms but that home stretch is the sweetest feeling in the world. Actually, the sweetest feeling is when you get your diploma. Then you know the school can't back out!

Something to look forward to is when you're done and you wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night going "I HAVEN'T BEEN TO CLASS IN A MONTH!" And then you go "wait...that's cause I'm not in school. Hell yeah."

Congrats dude! (Again). Truly good news.

I'm really fucking happy now, like I feel normal again.

Everyone is really impressed with my work here and is complimenting me on my stories (even if I am way behind on them). I've improved relationships with really important sources (who also have liked what I've written). The food in Singapore is great, people are looking forward to me coming back home, I'm telling anyone who will listen how much better things are going, there are plenty of opportunities for me to pray here (with an organized devotion to the Infant of Prague)...it is great. I really don't know why all this good shit just happened but I can't and won't complain.

Actually I will complain slightly. I won't be able to see all that I want to here. Wanted to go to Malaysia just because I'm so close and won't have time, I won't get to all the museums...grr... Oh well there are much worse things.

This last week I attended an Obama luncheon, shook hands with a US Senator during a photo-op in my office, 'carded' a prominent US Rep. at an event, was bumped into by a governor as she quickly descended an escalator (she did step on my freshly polished Aldens, though), moved into a new studio with a great view of Seattle's downtown and the water. And now, I am on the first day of my three vacation after working non-stop (12-14 hours a day) for about a month.

Walking to breakfast, I passed a coffee shop called `Love Juice` and a salon called `Repeat of Hair.` I love Japan.

dozing off in the backyard with a good book in the light summer afternoon sun.

I envy you your life abroad. It's one of my desires, to move overseas. Sadly, I lack your marketability, in the global picture.

I'm happy the week got done. Accomplished a ton of crappy, tedious shit. Then, great dinner and wine last night, chatting with an advanced Som about my taking the intro class, and after the scheduled tasting and before dinner, he pulled Mrs. Piob, me, and Chef into the cellar to taste a few bottles for an upcoming vintner's dinner.

Today, some actual progress on my golf swing, and thing morning, gave a talk to the incoming graduate class. Was very gratifying and I've actually already agreed to two internships for them.

Tonight, great dinner at home with Mrs. Piob, and great wine pairings.

Life is good

Also walking through Kabuki-cho last night, which is sort of the red-light/party/wild part of Tokyo, had some random Japanese woman come up and offer me a `brow job.` I said to her, `Honey, I can manscape these myself!` and kept on walking.

Damn mollusks.

Ah, I also miss the days of random "brow" jobs. Are you really sure you're for gay marriage?
