like the good ol' days

I went out last night, with Daniel, for the first time in ages. Usually when we're out 'together' he's working and I'm hanging out at the bar. But last night he had the night off and we went to dinner at Le Pere Pinard then out for drinks. It was a great time, we used to do it more often, when we lived on the Lower East Side. Now that we live uptown, well, the scene up here kind of sucks, and to be quite honest, a lot of nights I would prefer hanging out on the couch with Daniel in my pajamas watching something on Pay-Per-View. But last night was really nice, definitely not something that needs to be done every night (which we used to do) but it was a great time.

Daniel and I had a conversation a while ago about when we want to leave New York (as soon as I graduate this December) and we came to realize that New York City is amazing...but at our age this is a place for singles. Being in a relationship changes a lot of your personal habits, going out to certain places, the way you behave while you're there. Now, I just want to be with him. It's always wonderful to have the opportunity right outside your door to do what we did last night, but it's also really nice just to sit back on the couch and be lazy together.

And, Daniel got the first round of outline work done on his tattoo yesterday and it looks amazing. Eli is an extremely talented artist. It's probably going to take about 4 more sittings, around 5 hours a piece, to get the whole thing done. It will be a full half-sleeve on his right arm, will continue over to his shoulder, to his chest and eventually it will go all the way across his upper chest. It's going to be gorgeous when it is finished. I am so excited to get my tattoo in September. I'm glad it it will be a while before I get it so I can think about all the things I want to do with it and then Eli can work his magic with my ideas. I'm going to give him the general idea of what I want and let him take control of the design. The guy is an awesome tattoo artist.

OH...and I spoke to one of my best friends from high school last night, Jon, for the first time in over a year. I haven't seen him in about 3 years. It was great to catch up with him. I miss all those guys...but then, I wouldn't change what I have now for the world. All that...that's in the past now.

mood: moderate cahors hangover
song of the moment: i wish - skeelo (old school...I know)
