On Monday evening I met a new person I'd noticed in various clubs before and chatted about fetish photography, common acquaintances who run clubs, and others who work with famous comedians. I also had a deep conversation with a very friendly (and very pretty) friend about relationships, affection, birthdays, living in two places, and the difficulty of keeping nice hair.
Tuesday involved discovering a new and most decadent brand of chocolate, much talking, eating food under a tree (!), drinking strange beer, and very much affection. Yummy yummy. My flat was once again pronounced nice, and I didn't hear objections about my rather wide music collection :-)
Today I've had a first personal chat with someone I've known professionally at work (hi there!) whom I suspected would be just outside geek culture. And it was true - we chatted about what geeks do with their lives, gaming, social gaming, and the surprisingly (to non-geeks) open and personal habit of journaling.
Then, on the way back from the pub (mmm... Dark Island) I stopped at an espresso/deli shop and I was in a good mood so I started chatting with the two Scottish women who worked there. One of them asked if I was from Orkney, on account of having curly hair. Aw...... :-) that's the sweetest thing I heard in ages.
I think I'll smile at people and go meow meow for the rest of the week...
