Will the cynic go to sleep  
Things are going well between me and C-kun (boyfriend for those not in the know), even though he has not yet been subjected to most of my friends (just roomie, thastygliax and meranthi). But part of me keeps on waiting for the other shoe to fall so to speak. That things are going too well and thus something bad is going to happen, not because it should happen but because fate demands such things to happen.

I went over to C-kun's yesterday after gaming/food goodness (and having my hair buzzed). It was my mission to help C-kun entertain Jonas. So, we played three player hearts (and got our butts whooped good), three player bridge (more than one variant), watched some Love Hina and Here is Greenwood, etc. I even played a video game (not that I remember the name of it). It was a super deformed fighting game. I played Zelda and Kirby. The other two played Mario and a few other characters that I didn't remember. I even managed to come in second every once in a while.

I watched Jonas play Animal Crossing, which definitely looked like video game crack. People got sleepy around 3:30 to 4:00 a.m., and if it weren't for my nasty internal alarm going off at 8:30 I am sure that everyone would have gotten about two hours more sleep. C-kun cooked lunch for the two of us, and kicked us out of the kitchen. We were making him self conscious, because we both qualify as accomplished cooks and this was the first thing he was making from scratch. So, Jonas played more video games and I did cross stitch. I am very glad that I had the forethought to bring cross stitch or something to do.

Oh, and I brought Custard (the cuttlefish) with me. In three player bridge, Custard got to play the dummy. It was lots of fun.

And currently I have a pumpkin cheesecake baking in the oven. I used my springform pan, but I think I forgot to grease the sides, so hopefully it will come out well. The cheesecake is for C-kun's birthday, which is tomorrow.

It's just kind of weird how my gaming groups and hobbies have started to collide. And currently (since about the middle of this post), the cynic decided to take a nap. Must be the diet coke I have been drinking.

That'd be Super Smash Brothers Melee, the SD fighting game.

Well, he will be around for Thanksgiving. I know you won't be, but he will be sujected to my *entire* family, keshwyn, mindways, and keshwyn's Dad and Stepdad. *evil grin* This should be interesting...

Yes, and Steve & Irene enjoy getting to know *everything* about *everyone* they meet, which can be a little overwhelming. At least C isn't dating their kid, just their kid's best friend. ;-)

Animal Crossing is video game crack. I own a copy. It has no point and is utterly delightful. (:

That things are going too well and thus something bad is going to happen, not because it should happen but because fate demands such things to happen.

Sometimes I think that it's this expectation of fate that causes fate to oblige...

Anyhow, while odds are - perhaps - slightly against your entire life going absolutely perfectly from this moment onwards, it's entirely possible for a relationship to go for a long time without any major hiccups. keshwyn and I went for...I don't know how long, but at least a year or two before our first argument, and it wasn't even a big one or anything.

Not that we didn't have issues (many of them logistics - how do we get to see each other?) or disagreements (which were generally worked out eminently amicably), but it's amazing what open + honest communication can do for people who care deeply for each other...

Thanks. I know all of this intellectually, but it is just hard at times to take my normally cynical self and stuff it in a closet. And even when my cynic is just piping up, it goes five minutes on a couple of hours off.

So, mostly I'm OK (and I am not worried about arguments or communication. That part appears to be going fine).

I'm just glad that I am a realist.
