Blowing Off Steam.

I should probably be working, or sleeping, but instead Scott and I are hosting Alana and her boyfriend Jay. But you know what? It's good. We needed this. To just relax and laugh and share some Thai food with friends. They brought Max a cabasa and caxixi (they're musicians) and they brought me lots of wine...and Alana drew me an original piece of art too. Love it. Also, Alana brought me 4 used novels (one of which I have already read) that I am not allowed to give back to her. That's the good shit. Now, if I'm tired tomorrow, that's okay, because my soul got a little healing tonight. Plus, Alana and I got to talk calmly, peacefully, and professionally about our Autistic sons while Scott and Jay geeked out watching videos on Youtube, debated the merits of iTunes, and passionately argued about basketball. Now they are talking about glorified telephones and the digital era. Right now Alana is leaning on my shoulder with a full glass of wine...speaking of which, I need a top up.


  1. Glad you had a good time blowing off steam :)

    Hey Kat...did you hear the one about the two musician friends that got stuck in nocturnal 401 construction traffic, and spent nearly 3 exhausting hours on the highway trying to get home? It's pretty funny (we got in about 2:30am). Hope you had sweet dreams...whata great night!

    Alana xo

    Actually, it was okay. I made sure Jay knew that inching one's way along a highway, tired and cranky, with an eternal vista of bright red tail-lights ahead of you, does in no way compare - EVER - to an endless night of a screaming, diarrhea-ing, colicky baby. And I've had way more of those than he has. So he did the manly thing and drove us home, while I napped. Nice.
