So Santiago and I finally got to meet up on Friday night, and honestly, it was love at first sight! He was all that I expected, plus some. I didn’t think that we would hit it off so quickly, but we’ve totally bonded. As a matter of fact, I think I’m a bit TOO comfortable with him, which I realize could be dangerous . . . so I’m keeping my wits about me and making sure to vigilantly watch before making any bad moves.
Diem joined us on Saturday, and we had a GREAT time! She has lovingly nicknamed him Pablo, but I think Divya would be very upset at me if I took to calling him that. Anyway, Diem and I had some good times shoppin’, eatin’, and chillin’ . . . which we do best. Then we caught a late-night show of “Brokeback Mountain”.
I thought the movie was really, really good. Very sad, and certainly a lot to emotionally process, however, I didn’t find it to be nearly as depressing as I thought, nor did I see what all the controversy was about. It’s the tamest gay film I’ve ever seen. I give it 2 thumbs up . . . though I’m not positive that it deserves all its recent accolades.
Sunday was good times at church. Our new pastor – Matthew Dyer – taught his first tag-team sermon w/ Brian. So far, so good. He’s a cool guy. And everyone knows I’m a sucker for a Brittish accent I’m hoping for good times ahead. I know there are gonna be some changes at CRCC – which does frighten me slightly – but thankfully, I haven’t been around long enough for me to be overly attached to “the way things are”.
Anywwho . . . the other Pablo is calling. Must take this. Ciao for now, folks!
By the by . . . my voice is slowly coming back, so all those folks who have been calling . . . I should be able to return calls soon. Lata!
